This is not the best hotel, and not the worst. We paid extra for ocean view, and ended up with a balcony facing a wall. In order to see the ocean we had to lean out over the balcony - very disappointing. Also the cleaning was really bad. I expected the cleaning to be either everyday or every other day,... More

Went for a week with friends and the apartment we had was dark and dated. The night guy was always miserable and telling us to be quiet even before we walk into the hotel. If you are young do not stay there because cause they will constantly tell you that if you are not quiet they will throw you out.

these apartments are in a quiet location but still close to the main resort, bars and restaurants. it is on the opposite side of the bay to the irish quarter so you dont get all the noise at night very near a small beach although its only a short walk to the main beach. it has a very good pool...

Although its a walk from the beach it was in a peaceful location. The room was a good size and the beds were firm but comfy. Basic cooking facilities and a good size living room leading to a small balcony. It's about a 20 minute walk to the nice sandy beach. I didn't use the pool but it looked fine,... More

Firstly, it has a lovely big outdoor pool for such a small apartment complex - this means your never more than a few seconds away from the poolside. The hotel cafe overlooks the pool and is open 10am till 6pm for cheap breakfasts and snacks so you never have to leave the pool all day. The apartments are very clean... More

The room was dull, shabby and reek, there was a yeasty smell that did hang around all week couldn't decide if it was a... More

Lovely apartments. Basic but spotlessly clean and has everything you need. Staff helpful and friendly. Supermarket right opposite apartments. Santa Ponsa is a lovely little resort with some lovely beach side cafes for breakfast. Best evening meal is at Mama Mias just down the road on the opposite side of the apartments, lovely food at good prices and friendly staff.... More

We stayed here for my husbands birthday because our main aim was to be somewhere quiet and the hotel did serve that purpose but the state of the rooms is awful and you can see that they have put a few new items dotted around and painted everywhere but then everything else is from the last century. My bathroom window... More
