After a lovely week holiday in Santa Ponsa enjoying the sun and sea I think a few things could have made our holiday better and I will be honest. Pros; Room very clean and staff are amazing. Cons; the hotel is on a steep hill and most things in Santa Ponsa are a 10 minutes walk and it is true... More

Dear Joanne L, Thanks very much for your review in Tripadvisor. I have to say we are not fare away to the center of Santa Ponsa. I can asure you that it takes only 5 minutes by walk and at the same time the hotel is in a relatively quiet location. We have of course fridges to put in the... More

The hotel is so good! It's not very big, in front of the sea, very clean, beautiful and hospitable. The district, where hotel is situated is quite enough, bus stop to Palma is near. will advise it to all my friends

Nice boutique and small hotel mostly for adults. The pool is quite small but seemed enough for the amount of people staying. However there is no much sun as the hotel itself and the neighbour one make a lot of shade in September. So worth going to the beach. Wifi is free and you will find it free in most... More

Good value for money but still too small and we was told that our room was not one of the smaller ones so I wouldn't want to imagine how it would have been if we was in a smaller room! We didn't hear any noise as others have been saying but we didn't have a view to brag about either.... More

Our room was the smallest out of the party but it was well equipment and the bed was good quality. The hotel was very modern but still had a homely feel about it. I have never been to a hotel where the staff welcome you so much. The breakfast young girl was kept very busy but still nothing was too... More

Small hotel beautifully modernised- nice rooms great bar etc - what is best about this hotel is the staff - from the hotel director to Juan in the bar nothing is a problem - we asked for a sea view, asked for a fridge and the answer was always " no problem" - it only does bed and breakfast but...

Spotless clean, gorgeous pool area and really handy for the Jaggy Thistle for great night time entertainment. Food was lovely, no waiting for toast/tea/coffee as all these... More
