Rated 5 out of 5 by emes180 perfect romantic getaway
This resort hotel superseded our expectation. The facilities were outstanding and the staff particularly friendly and eager to help and please the customers. Would definitely go back on a next visit to the island.

Thank you to all the staff and Mr. Del Camp for such a lovely vacation. We just returned from an eight night visit for the third year in a row and plan to return next year. We visit Mallorca because the Castillo Hotel does such a fabulous job. It is not the most convenient pool vacation destination from Chicago! We received a much appreciated family suite upgrade that makes all the difference and fresh flowers and champagne and snacks awaited. Thank you--we enjoyed immediately! The views of Palma and the water are beautiful and the suite has a large bathroom and comfortable bedding and is beautifully decorated. The cuisine is outstanding and we enjoy eating outdoors. The night of the cocktail party one of the managers very kindly took our daughter down to the buffet to prepare a plate for dinner while at the party. She had so much fun being escorted like that. She also enjoyed the kids club and so did we for the relaxation time! Hanna even bought a hair bun making kit for her that we had been running around town trying to find. That is truly above and beyond---thank you Hanna! We would enjoy hearing music more often in the bar--we did not know the band played Wednesday during our stay. Looking forward to next time and thank you so much!

Rated 3 out of 5 by AlJ007 five star facilities with three star service
Welcome by doormen and receptionist was very friendly, room(s) were nice and very clean according to the expected standards.
Pool area (outdoor) is quite small and kids are not very much welcome was our general feeling.
Service staff is very busy carrying stuff around, cleaning tables and so on. There is no particular attention paid to the guests having breakfast or lunch. You always have to attract attention. for three breakfast staff was not asking a single time if we would like to have another coffee, juice or so.
Room service was used four times, none of them managed to bring all ordered things - everytime one item was missing.
late check out was granted, but on arrival in the room, door card was locked, maid in the room didnt open. once card was operating again, maid blocked door with our own luggage and had to be advised to remove so we can open the door. In the meantime our drinks and biscuits were discarded without notice.
overall impression: no particular interest in guests' needs. no five star experience. can't compete with other true five star resorts. Rather getting through max amount of guests.
Doormen and receptionists are very friendly and helpful.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: From the moment we arrived to our reluctant departure we felt enveloped in a world of luxury and well-being.
SPG RECOGNITION: Upgrade to a Grand Deluxe with a View over the Bay of Palma. The Front Office manager personally handled our check-in and accompanied us to our room. He spent a generous amount of time giving us a full briefing on the island and many great personal recommendations. Lovely fruit plates were delivered to our room twice during our stay. When I asked about the spa, the manager generously offered us two complimentary massages! The buffet breakfast was nothing short of spectacular.
THE ROOM: Exuded elegance. Wonderful bathroom with large tub and separate shower stall as well as a partitioned toilet area. Huge balcony.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: Breakfast on the terrace overlooking a beautiful golf course and Palma in the distance. The wine bar/restaurant Es Vi was lovely. The gym state-of-the-art. We enjoyed the indoor pool and jacuzzi every evening. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t conducive to enjoying the gorgeous outdoor pool.
DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS: It seems almost niggardly even to mention given the near-perfection of our stay but, as the staff here seemed so conscientious, it is worth pointing out in the name of service improvement that requests advised to the hotel prior to our arrival by my Platinum liaison were not fulfilled. Concretely, we asked for large size bathrobes, a martini shaker and glasses and daily delivery of the IHT but did not receive these things.
