The Hotel Information
The Castillo Son Vida, opened in 1961 and fully refurbished in 2006, is located in the exclusive villa district of Son Vida, a short 10-minute drive into Palma and just 15 minutes from the airport. This glorious 13th century estate is surrounded by a beautiful Mediterranean park and of course – the legendary Son Vida Golf Club.
This 5 star hotel is an absolute favourite with our clients. The combination of being a traditional & majestic building steeped in history, along with providing world-class cuisine, excellent service, full-service Spa, brilliant location & sensational guest rooms – calls for The Castillo Son Vida to be regarded as one of the very best five star properties in Mallorca.
World-class cuisine, excellent service, full-service Spa, brilliant location & sensational guest rooms
The Castillo Son Vida offers a wide variety of accommodation options to suit a range of budgets & requirements. The rooms vary from classic to deluxe and finally grand deluxe, each a little large than the previous and with more commanding sea views over the bay of Palma. For something extra special, there are six types of suite available – including the trendy Loewe suite, Royal Suite and the ultra private and luxurious Villa Suite, which sleeps 8.
The Terrace known as ‘The Balcony of Mallorca’ is also very special place, offering the absolute ultimate in al fresco dining boasting tremendous views down over the bay of Palma.
Eating and Drinking
Full breakfast is served here every day from 07:00, with outstanding views over the bay of Palma. The breakfast menu offers an extensive range of local and international products accompanied by a wide assortment of tea and coffee from around the world. When the sun goes down, the chefs at Es Castell produce some of the finest Spanish and Mediterranean food to be found anywhere in Mallorca, using seasonal ingredients from selected local producers.
Famous for it’s tapas to share and absolutely brilliant wine list, Es Vi provides for a more contemporary dining experience, with the usage of unique flavours and presentation transforming every meal you have here into an experience to remember. Whilst many of the great international old world wines can be found on the wine list here, we strongly recommend trying one or two of the local ones – which are most enjoyable!
‘The Balcony of Mallorca’ – probably the best place in Mallorca to enjoy a pre-dinner G&T or a post-dinner Whisky. Top notch.
Lounge ‘George Sand’
Named after the French writer, this bar provides for an intimate and relaxed setting to enjoy a nightcap, ordered from the staff at Bar Armas.

A Selection of Images of Castillo Son Vida
Four of us used Fox Golf for a 5 day golf tour of Majorca. The tour was a huge success and we are grateful to James for his efforts. He pays great attention to detail and this combined with his extensive knowledge of the golf courses and restaurants on the island ensured a smooth and highly enjoyable trip. Fox Golf are recommended!
Over the last few years my experience with Fox Golf has been first rate. Each trip has been superbly organised, overseen and managed directly by James. All golfing and social itineraries have been carefully tailored and expertly judged. And all logistics have run smoothly, without fault, so no moment is wasted and maximum fun can be had throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Fox Golf for any corporate event or personal trip with friends.
Fox Golf organised a trip for eight members from Royal Cinque Ports in April 2015. It was a great trip and brilliantly organised. James went out of his way to ensure every detail was catered for. We all had a great time both on and off the course. I can give no higher recommendation than to say if we go back we will ask James to do it all again for us. 10 out of 10.
