Castillo Hotel Son Vida, a Luxury Collection Hotel

Palma de Mallorca, Spain

A medieval castle perched high on a hill, with sweeping views of the azure bay of Palma.

They don’t call the Castillo Hotel Son Vida the ‘balcony of Mallorca’ for nothing. The hotel has been the residence of choice for the rich and famous ever since aristocrats made the place their home in the 13th century: you could find Grace Kelly, Aristotle Onassis, and Maria Callas lounging there a few decades earlier, and staying there today you might just spot Pedro Almodóvar, Claudia Schiffer and Sting. The lush gardens of the Son Vida estate make the place a quiet, rejuvenating haven; its particularly fertile soil has also made it a premier golf destination, comprising four formidable courses.

    We have stayed at the hotel before.We have always enjoyed staying there and will go back again when we are next in Mallorca.

    I’ve been a regular at the Castillo Hotel Son Vida for many years now. What I really love about it, is that they retain their staff for a long time and that the standard of the service has never dropped. I love being recognized and treated with such kindness and professionalism.

    A lovely hotel, larger than hotels we usually like to stay in. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was extremely large and very comfortable. Obviously it is a great hotel for golfers as it is right by a few golf courses.

  • C.T.

    Beautiful hotel with attentive staff, very attentive to customer requests, and the quality of the food was very good. The staff were efficient and courteous when dealing with any issues.

    The Castillo Son Vida was a beautiful hotel to spend a week & the staff were delightful and made the stay even better. The young woman in the main restaurant during breakfast & dinner was especially worth a mention for her helpfulness and welcoming smile. We had the most wonderful stay it was just what we needed.

    It is one of our most favorite hotels -that we come back to year after year - the staff are most helpful and the long term staff - front desk and concierge always welcome us back as old friends . The hotel has wonderful charm and its location is ideal to visit Palma in the evening . The external dining area for breakfast and lunch is excellent with a wonderful view over Palma bay - I would like the facility to have a more casual restaurant for evening dinner . I would pay particular praise to the concierge and front desk staff - nothing is too much of a problem for them - always smiling and ready to assist / I have recommended Son Vida to many people

  • J.S.

    We will definitely stay in this hotel where we had a wonderful time

  • P.E.H.

    A very nice hotel with good service.

  • R.R.

    This hotel is worth the trip.
