Good for winter visit, was close to shopping area but not close to beach although easily accessible by bus. Indoor pool smelled like urine
The views from the hotel are magnificent. We had breakfast in the hotel twice and dinner 1 night which was very nice indeed, plenty of choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we thouroughly enjoyed our stay.
The view was wonderful. Our hotel was close to several restaurants and shopping mall. The Cathederal was a 5 minute drive. There was an oversight on the daily housekeeping staff. I notified the manager and housekeeping was at the door within 10 minutes on Christmas day.
Good views, clean rooms, close to modern shopping centre and easy access to main street via lift. Having nothing done about the reported fault with the tv therefore preventing us from watching any of the films at night. As I have arthritis I need to rest after an active day.
The hotel was just great. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We wanted to rent a car, they arranged it. We wanted to find something, they knew exactly where we needed to go. Great staff. Christmas Eve dinner was also most excellent. Would highly recommend the hotel Would have liked to be a little closer to the action. But, this is not really a minus. Where we were was quiet and peaceful
Location and view Service and food
I found the staff very plesent and were very helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent value. I found it a little far from the city,however the frequent bus service made up for that.
We had a small room, with no view, too much of a hassel to complain, for 1 night. Hotel a bit old, and needs work, big problem is parking, I had to walk for 15 minuts after finaly finding a spot, and this is febuary.
Friendly staff , very clean rooms & public areas. Amazing views over Marina and to cathedral in distance. Rooms comfortable . I would highly recommend this hotel, I will be back for future visits.
What a wonderful hotel. We paid a little extra for the sea view and boy was it worth it. The staff was friendly and English speaking. The room was also quite large and very clean. We had a wonderful stay here. If you close the balcony door from the outside, it locks and you cannot get back into the room. We were trapped on our balcony for quite a while before we could get someone's attention. Makes for a good story, though.
The view of the marina and Palma city from our balcony was stunning. There was also an excellent choice for breakfast. Slightly to far from the city although there was a regular bus(No 3) available at a cost of 1.25 euro's per person.
The room is very comfortable,breakfast was delicious and the restaurant staff impecable. The water pressure of the bathroom .
Very friendly staff. Spacious rooms with great attention to detail - especially accessories provided in the bathroom. Could have a better selection of english entertainment channels on the television.
I love the Victoria. The friendly staff, immaculate surroundings, nothing is too much trouble for anyone.
Great staff, great breakfast, nice pool, great location. Great room - we have a room looking at Tito's, a very popular night venue, open until late in the night, but the sound isolation was great, so we heard nothig!
stuff I expected that there is bigger and better gym
Location, rooms excellent, comfort, people, employees great no
wonderful pool breakfast was overpriced and the fitness room was non-existent
The staff were fantastic, so accomodating, and the views from the rooms were so beautiful (sea-view rooms). Our only complaint was the room cleaning - it was a bit shoddy, wine glasses were left as they were without being taken away, the room was turned down with no attempt at making anything else right - in all just a bit of a quick and unprofessional job for a 5 star hotel. This was the only thing though, the whole hotel was amazing otherwise and we would definitely go back again.
the service food at the pool
Wonderful stay, very pleasant front of house staff, very comfortable room. Let down a little by poor housekeeping over the four nights.
Position of hotel and location The front desk staff could hve been a bit more knowledgeable about tours.
We popped over to the Nixe for 3 nights and it was a wondful break. The hotel is right of the beach and we had a huge balcony so we could simply sit and watch the sea. We ate in several times for lunch ( as the view was so lovely) and in the evening. Excellent food and service. Hotel does front onto a main road and although many shops were closed as this is low season, I suspect it might get fairly busy in summer. However, the NIxe is an oasis , with a great spa and we would definateyl stay there again..Bus cost 1euro to get into Palma 25 mins away. Road at front of hotel could be busy in Summer. Cannot walk very far along sea front as beach fairly short.
old and not a 5 start level
Sea view, balcony Lack of the hotel territory, poor vegetation around
Very friendly staff, good food, perfect gaspacho, nice beach, conviniet location very strange choice of Russian TV channel (RBC - the only one); looks like nothing to do there with children - no one playground, even on the beach
Bed was extremely comfortable and the sea view uninteruppted. The concierege were most helpful. Car parking was definitely a must There was a wedding or wedding fair on on the Friday evening and as we were right a bove the function room it was terribly noisy. Foirtunately all finished at midnight.
Nixe Palace was perfect for our weekend away and we cannot wait to stay there again. We arrived to cava and fresh fruit in our room and that level of service continued throughout the stay. From yummy food in the bistro to the delightful spa to the spectacular views of the sea, this hotel is absolutely fantastic. For those who prefer to stay near to the city, this is a bit further out, but taxis frequently drive past the hotel and we never waited more than ten minutes for one. There is also, as others have mentioned, a bus stop near the hotel, but as the cabs were so cheap, we never used this.
Room was ready at 11.00H instead 15.00h.Clean. Quiet. I had a room a little bit at the end, no view!
Good spa facilities,nice beach, easy to get to the center of Palma and Porto Pi shopping center. Smelly room not really up to 5* hotel, very noisy if you book the room with the city view - which is actually overlooking the main street & back entry for the laundry services. Smell of savage for 4 days & we were not able to get rid off it!!!. Poor newspapers selection - no English titles. Cleaning ladies very noisy in the morning, chatting next to our room. Very souless hotel with generally poor service, without a single smile. Will not recommend to friends.
views and location to Porta Portals
The best thig for us was the location - ideal for friends we were visiting. The service was poor, bordering on absymal. Information was not easily forthcoming from the reception desk and the person on duty when we needed to check out did not know how to use the computer or the card reader - and we had a plane to catch. We went to another bar because the service at the hotel bar was non-existent.
The hotel was good for us becauce we wanted somewhere quite when out of season,although there were more people in the hotel we almost had the pool to ourselves. One day the maid never cleaned the room, which was not a big problem has there was only the two of us and i changed the towels myself from the maids trolly. The breckfast was a little dull the same every morning, when i think there should of been a different choise of fruit than just apples, oranges and tomatoes and one day they run out of Yogurts. The bar was not open most days, no caferteria which we never read this in any adverts of the hotel. We also booked a double but we got a twin???
Spectacular view of the bay from the room. Lift only travels to 6th floor - carrying bags up to the 7thn floor was a strain
The staff was nice and helpfull (speak english). The room was quit big, confortable and clean, and as we asked we had the view on the sea. You can hear a bit noise from other room, but it wasn't so noisy, it didn't disturb so much. It's 10min walking until the beach. The breakfast is ok. The breakfast in the week could start earlier.
Good budget Hotel in a fairly good location for both the beach and the City. Lovely pool which no one really used.Room clean with daily maid service.Breakfast the same every day but a fairly good selection.Reception staff were extremely helpful when my flight was cancelled and my husband was ill. Only English TV channel was BBC news,but then we did not go there to watch TV.Fresh coffee at breakfast would have been nice,as would have been tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Staff is very amiable, the hotel location is convinient and quiet, delicious breakfasts.
The view to the sea
The staff were very polite and helpful but not really friendly.
Jacuzzi I didn't like the lack of organization skills at reception. If you go there don't ask anything by phone, go down, otherwise they will take for ever. The cleaning staff in the morning don't respect the "please don't disturbe" sign at the door (they open it 3 times, I had to ask in reception: please let us sleep
The hotel is comfortable and the location is nice if you prefer to stay outside of the downtown even walking a little. The hotel is near the restaurants and also the night life (boates). You can visit the Castel Bellver climbing some small streets and stairs. If you are without car and with baggage it is better you take a taxi. The hotel is quite near the Passeo Maritimo around Auditorium, but you need to climb a small street or stairs to get the Av. Joan Mirò and than the hotel. A hotel in the downtown, a nice place to get around without car is Pl. de Espanya.
Good sized comfortable room Cockroach in bathroom upset my wife
The comfortable atmosphere, easy access to the City. Our room over the entrance to the hotel picked up a lot of late night noise.
It close proximity to the marina area and also the quiet location of the hotel the beds were too hard for our liking
Easy access to stroll into city centre as well as the bus route to several beaches
nice rooms, clean, good location, good breakfast 2 single beds put together in stead of 1 double bed
The location is fine, even though it is not in the center of town, but taxi's are just on the corner of the street and it's cheap Not that I can think of
The staff was very helpful and the overall sixties/seventies style of the hotel aggreed with me. During our stay the outdoor pool was closed although the weather was excellent.
Location was excellent. Lovely view of Palma bay. Overall - a good experience. While the room was clean it was a little outdated - heavy 80's style furniture/decor was not in keeping with my personal taste, however, the bathroom was more up to date.
Everything was superb! Highly recommend!
The hotel has a wonderful view, the room was very clean and really comfortable. The breakfast amazing
Breakfast buffet Poor air conditioning in room
Excellent facilities, good location, polite and helpful staff, superb breakfast menu External noise throughout the night - take earplugs!
There is noise from the street as the hotel is in the night club area of Palma.
Excellent hotel with very good staff and great location on the marina with easy access by foot to the centre or by public transport to the beach. Decent night-life located closeby too...good breakfast.. Rang the hotel on the night before arrival to confirm on early check-in and told it would be no problem. Arrived at 10am and room was not ready then told to come back by 12/12.30pm but still the room was not ready - eventually checked in at 13.30pm - did get a room with a marina view but was not a good start.
Location Bar and disco noise all night
Good location and value for money
Friendliness of staff Unable to check in at 3.00pm
The staff are very helpful with suggestions on where to go and what to see. Buffet breakfast was excellent and included in the rate. Other than breakfast, meals and serving staff are mediocre for a 5 star hotel. Fortunately there are good restaurants in the area....
Excellent facility with all amenities, good views and location. Spa Service is a rip-off. I signed up for an hour's sports massage and my masseur rushed through the process in less than forty minutes. For the experience, I paid nearly 300 Euros. One of the reasons I chose this hotel is becasue it had a Spa, something which I use on all of my recreational trips. This one was the worst ever!
The Staff- they were excellent. The pool area was also most pleasant, and the view from our room was beautiful. Nothing - only the walk up from the village. However, taxi at €3- who could complain!
- Very quiet, clean, nice installations. Wifi for free in the hall. - Wifi not for free in the room. I concider water,electricity and Internet access as the basis.
the convienence of position, the friendly staff & services of the hotel
The staff are very friendly and helpfull. The cleaning of the room was not good.
The best thing about the hotel is the pool area. It is spacious and very attractive. I would like to bring my children here sometime but I am not comfortable that children would fit in as most of the guest are quite old. The only thing I didn't like on both my stays was teh beds. When I book a double room I expect a double bed not two single beds pushed togther. This is not romantic.
Şehir merkezine yürüyerek 15 dk. da ulaşmak mümkün. Fiyatına göre oldukça güzel, temiz ve rahat bir otel. Ayrıca resepsiyondakiler çok ilgili ve bilgilendiriciler. Her sorumuzu güler yüzle cevapladılar ve gerçekten çok yardımcı oldular.
Konumu itibari ile son derece sessiz ve sakin, imkanları iyi seviyede, personeli de oldukça yardımcı Fiyat kalite dengesi açısından sunduğu olanaklara göre ve diğer otellere kıyasla fiyatının biraz yüksek olduğunu düşünüyorum.
Biz Room with a terrace'li kategoride bir odada kaldık, terasından oldukça faydalandık. İngilizce kanal ve pay tv yoktu.
yeri cok iyi otobus duragina ve plaja yakin , cok kalabalik olmayan bi bolgede sessiz ve sakin yataklari cok rahatsiz
Şehir merkezine yakın ve temiz bir otel. Wi-fi internet bağlantısının olması da avantaj oldu. Fiyat açısından da uygun.
Very good location, good service and spa and swimming pool, clean and comfortable.
People very helpful at reception and on the hole a very nice hotel We had to pay a bill at the end of our stay, probably our fault as we were under the impression all had been paid upfront. Currently investigating this possibility. If reading this could you clarify this please
it a small nice hotel with a good value for money the hotel does not have internal access in the rooms.
Even thought it said there was internet access, it was only from an old computer in a very tiny and dark room. Not really four stars.........
Was not enough Sun loungers (less than 10, for a hotel with a few hundred capacity!)
The staff is very friendly and the indoor pool facilities are nice. The room, although big had only one small window so it felt a bit like living in a cave. The hotel is also located a bit outside of the center so if you want to do sightseeing you are better of going for a more central place.
The hotel was centrally situated in Palma and handy for sight seeing, shopping and restaurants. The bus stop to Illetas beach was just up the road, just a short walk away. The bus stop into Palma was just across the road - very handy. The hotel was a pleasant one to stay in, beds were comfortable, the buffet breakfast in the morning was very enjoyable with lots of choice. The bar was convenient and all staff we encountered were very pleasant. The indoor pool area was badly lit and felt dark and enclosed. There was no member of staff around to ask about the sauna. We could not see anywhere in the pool area to change from our day clothes into swimwear.
the closeness to the harbor and walking distance to the major attractions the front desk staff and basic lack of helpfullness - really horrible by comparison to other hotels
the friendly and helpful staff. the rooms were nice and comfortable, with quite a space. the breakfast, the sauna, small swimming pool and gym included was great value for the price.
excellent breakfast; good access to main centres; 24 hour service; room good size and good cleaning services;internet access Some noise in early evenings and morning from other rooms and equipment. Not crowded so may be worst in high season
Chill out area, roof area. It is not a 4 star hotel: small rooms, no room telephone, no room service, elevator small and old, staff not prepared, breakfast very very poor.
Pretty boutique hotel, the staff really looked after us well, breakfast was good, would recommend pool is tiny and the jacuzi was not working, they did not have the 4 twin rooms I had requested on arrival.
This is a good place to stay;- comfortable and clean with very helpful and polite staff;- an enjoyable continental breakfast;- 200 mtrs from the bus stop for the No.1 bus direct to / from the airport (4 euros). Nothing actually, but the "sea view" rooms are overpriced.
Friedness of staff, small but pretty breakfast. Carpet on florrs and lift were just awfull, need urgent change. Hotel is ending some majir works, maybe this is why...
Relaxing lounge area Breakfast is not very well organized, though the girls are nice
Convenience, places of interest within walking distance The breakfast could have been better, with more choices of fruits & cakes. Tissue papers are really common thing that should be available for guests
A really excellent breakfast Nothing
Good hotel, modern, clean with profesional staff and service. Some traffic noise due to location was only downside. Traffic noise a bit intrusive
it had a calm atmosphere. professional staff. me and my mother enjoyed the stay and made us relaxed even though the traffic outside was sometimes a bit noisy.
An excellent hotel with luxurious, traditional decor. Comfortable beds and marble baths and floors completed the experience. The Continental has an excellent location near Jaime III for world class shopping. The spa/fitness center was immaculate and well equipped for a small space. Room service was prompt and efficient and the multi-lingual staff made staying here a real pleasure I have already booked a reservation for my return trip. There was not one thing I didn't like about the Continental.
It was quiet, the location was good, the breakfast was good and the breakfast area was attractive. I would have liked to be able to get some english language channels on the TV. The decor is rather old fashioned in its style; I prefer something more contemporary. But all in all the hotel was just fine for what we wanted.
Friendly, efficient staff, both at reception and breakfast. Good security re keys at reception.
Everything The jacuzzy was cold and the pillows where very poor
Elegant and attractive, although not as glamorous as it looked on the internet. Staff very good. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room would have been nice. Plus details like box of tissues. Breakfast very expensive for us with the exchange rate. Sparse on pillows.
the ease of how everything was at the hotel just one thing and that is for 5 nights I wish they would of given a better rate for all nights
The hotel was conveniently situated, the room was comfortable and spacious and the hotel staff very friendly and helpful Very little but gym / leisure facilities were limited and I would have expected rate to include breakfast and not have to pay an additional 12 euros pp.
Lovely room, free minbar Air con not working
Clean room, superior bathroom, friendly staff
Modern hotel with good facilities. We liked free minibar offer. Only 10 min walk from the heart of the city (Catedral), and you can find really good restaurants nearby. Free wifi would be perfect in rooms, too. If you have no reserved parking place in hotel parking, you could hardly find place in the street.
The hotel is very close to Marina Alboran in Palma; Interesting architecture of rooms
Hotel Staff was very friendly - Rooms are comfortable and clean Noise from the streets even with the Windows closed...
The bathroom was fantastic and lovely comfy beds.
Spacious and clean main room and bathroom. Staffs were quite helpful. Free mini bar. Close to the bay.
Location. Looks -> very modern trendy hotel. Breakfast available till noon on the weekend !!! Wifi not practical -> should have an online paying facility iso only at reception. (Or make it free)
lovely room and location
relaxing and luxurious--felt I was in a fairy tale! made for a fabulous 2nd honeymoon! would've liked complimentary shuttle service to/from town
Professionalism of the stuff. Level of the service and hotel itself is very high. Politeness of the stuff Excellent positioning and picturesque view on the surroundings. Excellent cousine at both restaurants. 4 swimming pools. Parking Nothing
I loved the location close to Palma also the hotel facilities pool, spa,golf and the food was fantastic!!
The quality of the hotel itself and the professionalism of the staff - nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant food was of a very high standard and the setting of the hotel is perfect being very quiet yet with Palma only a few minutes away
Very pleasant week at Castillo Hotel Son Vida. The staff were very helpful and always greeted with a smile. They upgraded our room so we could have a balcony too which was nice. They only issue was that it was quiet at night so we drove into Palma every evening rather than eat at the hotel.
wonderful surroundings and so peaceful
very calm. nice. good quality. good location.
the whole experience
Wonderful relaxed atmosphere, excellent friendly staff.
Excellent breakfast, location great, good views of the city yet you feel you are in a semi-rural location. Good quality food in the restaurants. For a five-star hotel it was little short on what you might expect. Do not compare it to Sandy Lane or other hotels of that standard. We had to ask to have the sheets turned in the evening, this they were happy to do. You'd also occasionally find that there was not enough towels in the room. Trivial things like that!
We very much liked the position of the Hotel because it was easy to get to wherever we wanted to go. Also the rooms were very spacious The rooms were very stuffy even when the airconditioning was not turned on. Opening the window means that you get the traffic noise from the road in front.
Hotel facilities - pool/sauna etc. Room very large with sea view. Able to sit on 4th floor restaurant terrace outside for breakfast even in December
reception staff extremely helpful and friendly. room lovely, view from terraza fabulous, jacuzzi and swimming pool very nice , breakfast good wasnt many english channels in the room -would like bbc1 and itv
Good location for my purposes. Value for money. Nice room. Hotel decor is a bit dated, could do with an interior designer.
Located directly on the Palma marinas waterfront with a nice guest balcony on the 5th floor overlookin the harbor. Polite staff, spotless modern barhroom, decent wifi (video streaming for Skype spotty) Room had a slightly musty odor
convenience.able to walk into Palma being overlooked by the tryp belver and having to have curtains closed all time
