Had a meal at the restaurant on the 1st October. The service was very below standard. Waiters were shouting at each other to communicate while they walked past our table. A waiter drove his trolley into the chair where my wife was sitting. The other guest at our table ordered a coffee with liqueur but didn't receive the liqueur. The wine menu was presented quite a while after the food was ordered. All in all, the experience was not great. We then ordered a taxi at reception, the taxi came and went and we weren't called and we then proceeded to wait for another hour for the next taxi!
Castillo Hotel Son Vida is an spectacular adult only resort hotel full of amenities. The hotel used to be a castillo or a castle at the time. Castillo Hotel Son Vida is specially famous for golf, so if you are interested in gold, this is the place. The hotel is not at Palmas downtown. However, the hotel runs a shuttle to downtown every afternoon and night.
It’s the little things that make the difference.the brilliant. Staff, the way they remember you prefer the shady area by the pool, gorgeous female staff who glide like models, with a smile that could not be improved by an Hungarian dentist, staff who are there if you need a drink, but don’t press you to buy one Staff who clean your room whilst you have breakfast, and most important at my age, lights that enable you to read in the loo. Talking of which the bedside lights are great and all can be extinguished with one button so you don’t spend time before bed switching hundreds of knobs on and off. A bath easy to climb in and out of, and taps that do not require a science degree. A tv with the main UK stations ie not just the usual interminable, repetitive sky news. Not just a coffee machine in the room, but a good old kettle with packets of English Breakfast nectar. ( though maybe a more varied variety of cheese..at breakfast what about some blue ?…and more robust granola ? Oh and this morning they ran out of all bran, but I sufficed with prunes) Nowadays if you don’t want the formal evening dining menu, they welcome you on terrace…the fabulous “balcony of balconies” as it is known with a sweeping view of Palma and the ocean. The best choice would be the Tuna Taitiki..beautifully presented, like sliced Toblerone, only 17 euros, or a Caesar salad or beef burgers, for people with my simple tastes. Drinks a bit steep though, 1 2 euros for a Virgin Mary, not much more if you. Risk losing your virginity. Plenty to watch, by the way..two or three weddings whilst we were there and we enjoyed the music and people watch experience, But nicest of all was a great party on the terrace which the hotel gave for the younger hotel staff…presumably thanks for the seasons efforts but equal in drinks and food to that given to the guests. That being the case, although there with family (19 of us) for my 90 th birthday, would gladly take on a post retirement job there if that’s how they look after their staff ! One final small, t tough not the hotels fault..Russians who talk loudly and incessantly on their phone, and one in particular with funny white things hanging out of his ears, who shouted at someone , no doubt tending his shep and oligarchical bits and bobs . I waited till he shut up, and then loudly asked the lovely waitress if they ha d any Ukrainian wine ?
