I stayed at this hotel for a business meeting, and there is nothing to complain about at this hotel. The location is very nice on a hill with excellent views and the staff is very helpful with anything. The bar and restaurant are also very good to relax and enjoy the evening, and when the weather is good you can walk onto a nice terrace from the meeting rooms to continue discussions outside.
Overall an excellent experience.

The hotel is located about 15 minutes from downtown Palma on a beautiful hill surrounded by beautiful villas and golf courses.
The view from the terrace is breathtaking, personnel is really high-level, many of them have been working in that hotel for more than 20 years.
We had un upgrade as Spg Gold to a grand deluxe room and the room was perfect and spacious, nice retro decor, very confortable bed with big feather pillows, lots of soft towels and amenities in the bathroom, complimentary water, tea set with box of different teas, even a rose in a glass ball with white stones and ice cubes every night with turndown.(but no chocolate or sweets)
The health club is basic and the indoor pool had cold water (too cold for us) and jacuzzi had extreme hot water.Anyway the seating area near the the indoor pool is pleasant and very silent.
We did't try the restaurant, just breakfast in the room which was excellent and the waiter was polite and friendly.Also the clerks at seated check out and the concierge were perfect.
We didn't try the Spa as they had no availabity for the time requested.
Very beautiful outdoor pools and gold courses.
A mention for the Starwood perfume sprayed in the lobby ...fantastic!

Room Tip: rooms in the main building with the view of Palma and the cathedral. The grand deluxe rooms are perf...

I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in december.

Welcome and checkin was already great. While bringing my luggage to the room, the concierge was explaining where the meeting rooms where for my business meetings, showing me the restaurant (and yes, also the bar). The room was large with a comfortable bed and great bathroom. The view on the bay from my room was just amazing.

Service in the hotel is just great. Whether it's in the bar or at the front desk, people are friendly, serving you with a smile and ready to help you put whenever they can.

The staff helped us out in making reservations for a restaurant on Saturday night (btw, Simply Fosh definitely is worth a try) and was so kind as to make the necessary arrangements for me to go and play a round of golf at Son Vida.

I look forward to my next visit. Pretty sure it won't take long for me to come back to this great place !

Me and my partner have stayed in this hotel about 5 times this year and there has never been one little thing that is less than luxury. I hope that one day we will get married in this hotel as it is ever so special to us. The staff is amazing and so is the director Mr Veenmaa. We are ever so grateful to this hotel for making every our trip magical.
This is what you call a 6 star service!

Thank you and we can not wait to return!
