All the staff are very helpful at the Castillo but I would particularly like to thank Matthew for his useful tips on restaurants, places to visit and a map! We intended to travel around the around the island but it was so peaceful here that we ended up staying mostly at the hotel with occasional trips into town. Expensive but...

As other people have said, overall the hotel is great. Stayed for a week in a standard room which was fine, no need to upgrade as you will spend very little time in it. The staff were great, really nice and nothing was to much trouble for them. Breakfast was fine with hot and cold food available. We ate 3...

Last year this hotel was 'almost perfect' this year it was perfect! Just 10 minutes to Palma by taxi. View from Terrace spectacular. All staff speak English. Suitable for babies and young children but noticed 2 boys around 11 to 15 years were quite bored. This hotel is quite expensive but you get what you pay for.

To sum up a great hotel but a little pricy. We stayed for four days is his hotel and loved every minute, yes it is outside the town but as every commentary refers to this it should be no surprise. About €10 a go but food and drink in the town is about 1/2 price of the hotel so it...

My family, 2 adults/2 teens just returned from staying at Castillo and we had a great experience throughout our time in Mallorca.

The hotel is impressive from the beginning with grand entrance and castle facade. Service greets you in a way that takes some time getting used to: You do not touch your own bags, they do. No request is balked at or questioned, rather carried out quickly. You do not go get anything, they bring it to you. The views and...

This large hotel is well run and situated on the hills overlooking Palma, which is a ten minute taxi drive away. The grounds are lovely and well manicured. The hotel has a subdued atmosphere and is good for local golf courses.
