Interestingly I read my TripAdvisor review from the last visit here in 2015 before writing todays, nothing had changed and the points I made in 2015 are still valid now. For a "Luxury Collection" hotel that is incredible and disappointing. Reception is still very professional

I recently stayed at this property along with approximately 135 coworkers. The overall experience was superb; the grounds and hotel are very well kept, the rooms are quiet, nicely appointed, and well-furnished, and the staff were friendly and helpful. My room had two twin beds

In winter many high end resorts not in the city are closed, so if you want a nice view, a green quiet setting and garden / pool Son Vida castle is a natural choice. The location is overall very pleasant, with nice view over Palma, surrounded by green, luxurious villas and golf

It must have been glorious in its time, it is now desperately in need of complete refurbishment in all areas. We took a deluxe room as classic rooms, which had been refurbished ,were overlooking a nearby construction site. On arrival the tv did not switch off, engineer

Dear regentspark17, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback in regards to your stay at the Castillo Hotel Son Vida, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Mallorca. We are very sorry to hear that the classic style of our hotel does not meet your expectations. We are always happy to provide room upgrades upon availability to our valued guests, but in this case it was unfortunately not possible, as our hotel is fully booked during New Year’s Eve. Your room belongs to the booked room category Deluxe Terrace and overlooks the garden and green golf course of Son Vida. For this reason, we do not really understand your comment regarding the views to a construction site. Please accept our sincere apology for the technical problems you experienced in regards to the heating in your room on the day of arrival. We have shared your feedback with the appropriate hotel team to ensure that this was an isolated issue that will not happen again in the future. Our hotel offers a daily turn down service in the evenings and also complementary water bottles are placed in the room every day. With pleasure we will arrange some additional complementary water bottles for you every day, as offered by or Duty Manager. We are glad to hear that you were satisfied with the service provided by our Duty Manager. The team of our Castillo Hotel Son Vida will do it’s very best in order to provide a memorable experience with exceptional service during the rest of your stay. We wish you a happy new year and remain at your entire disposal, in case you have any further wishes.

The centre of town, around the Paseo del Borne, is ideal, easy access to shopping as well as the old town with many restaurants and bars. The concierge has a list of restaurant recommendations, based on our own criteria as well as feedback received from our guests, he will be more than happy to assist. Feel free to contact me directly if you need any additional information - and of course I would also recommend to try at least once one of our wonderful restaurants and enjoy the view from our terrace. Best regards, Oscar del Campo General Manager

Hi all, does the hotel provide an airport pick up and how much is it compared to a taxi
We rented a car so I don't know the answer. We liked having a car very much as we were able to see a lot of the island.

The bus number 1 goes from the airport (EUR4) to the center of Palma. There is a card for 10 rides costing EUR10; these are available at any Tabac shop or newspaper stand. This is a very economical way to go all around Palma and the suburbs.
