“Everything you would expect”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

My husand and I stayed at this hotel during the summer. Fortunately, it is everything you would expect- beautiful, clean, great pool, nice rooms, and the breakfast was fantastic. The concierge and reception staff was also incredibly welcoming and helpful.

With that said, because this hotel is a part of a large hotel chain, there's nothing special or endearing that I can say about this hotel because it's very similar to any other 4-5 star hotel.

The best thing about this hotel is the pool. It's so relaxing and offers the perfect place to rest and enjoy the sun. We also played golf and the course is beautiful.

The downfalls are you are far away from the town and beach. The beaches in Majorca are some of the most beautiful in the world, and you don't have access to them from the Castillo unless you rent a car or take a cab. Also, the food and drinks are very expensive, but since you have no other choice other than going into town, you are stuck paying for them.

This is definetly one of the best hotels I have ever been to. It is perfectly run and offers more than you ever need.

The rooms are huge and have two bathrooms a seperate walk-in closet as well as a bed room and a seperate living room.

The service is more than welcoming and the staff is more than eager to get you everything you need even bofore you thought about it.

All in all a fantastiv hotel.

Stayed here for 4 nights in mid December. From the moment of arrival we were made extremely welcome by Wilem who performed our check-in kindly and efficiently. The whole place is opulent - a beautiful property full of beautiful paintings and antique furniture. Every piece is interesting. The room was extremely comfortable. The view from both room and the terrace must be the envy of all in Palma. The service from all the hotel staff was never less than excellent. Very convenient for the town by either taxi - 12 euro, or the bus 1.25 euro, only about 10 minutes. I would highly recommend this hotel if you wasnt to feel extra special.

What a fantastic hotel, a true 5* experience. The hotel is beautiful, stunning views on the bay of Palma de Mallorca, beautiful surroundings, fantastic swimming pools, etc. The hotel is very classy but not pretentious. We had a beautiful room with spectacular views. The staff was very helpful, very service-oriented and very friendly. The food in the restaurant was ok, not very special.

We were here for a weekend, but we will sure come back during the summer to enjoy the pools.
