Castillo Hotel Son Vida Review – Majorca

What do you look for in a luxury hotel? Unrivalled facilities? First class service? Sumptuous interior? All of which is housed in a historic grand building surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens? You’ve just described the five star Castillo Hotel Son Vida.

This impressive 13th century castle oozes a sophisticated style and instantly makes you feel like you’ve arrived home as royalty. The Castillo Hotel Son Vida has been pleasing guests such as Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly for over half a century; in that time they’ve continued to develop a reputation for exceptional hospitality and catering to your every need.

Perched on the Son Vida Hills with outstanding views overlooking the bay of Palma and Palma city, it’s a slice of tranquil heaven whilst remaining only a short fifteen minute drive from the city centre and beaches. Its secluded location makes it perfect to relax get away from the world. From Palma, you’ll see the Castillo Hotel Son Vida and its turreted facade and tower proudly sitting high in the sky.

Inside the gorgeous property you’ll find exquisite architecture, exemplified by white pillars and a coloured glass dome which continues to bathe the reception hall in a warm glow as the sun shines throughout the day. Guests can also marvel at the range of art and treasures on display that wouldn’t look out of place in the Prado museum. One of the highlights and main features of the resort is the Balcony of Mallorca, a large area in which to enjoy the sun and jaw-dropping views – creating the most romantic setting for wedding ceremonies.

Warm and luxurious colours greet you as you enter your spacious room, complete with doors leading to a balcony so you can enjoy the views from your bed. Guests can indulge themselves and experience fine dining at the Bodega style gourmet restaurant Es Castell or sample local cuisine in the tapas restaurant which serves over 400 varieties of wine. You can also enjoy a refreshing drink or wind down the evenings at the poolside bar.

Guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to exercise with two outdoor swimming pools, a children’s pool, an indoor heated pool, a gym and four tennis courts. Those who prefer to relax in their spare time are equally catered for with a beauty centre and health club complete with sauna and steam bath – an oasis for making you feel good inside and out. Younger guests can have a great time in the hotel’s kids club. The hotel also benefits from being in close vicinity to the Arabella Championship golf courses – the largest golf complex in Spain – which is as beautiful as the Castillo Hotel Son Vida.
