Firstly the reason for the 3* review. We had workmen with electric drills, hammers, etc all week, changing the indoor heated pool to an undercover one and working on putting a platform on the roof for more sun beds. Secondly, if you like fast food i.e,. hot dogs burgers chicken nuggets, fish fingers etc. you will find the food great, I don't and struggled to put a decent meal together, thank goodness for a great salad bar.
Right that's the moan out of the way.
This is a fantastic hotel for families with young children. The suites are spacious so more than enough room for a family. The children's pool is amazing with little water slides etc. They have kids clubs at various times of the day for children 4 and upwards. The first hour of the evening entertainment is dedicated to the kids and they love it. There is a small beach where the dads take over the building of the sand castles and the kiddies wander off and leave dad to it. Swimming in the sea I can see being a problem as it is a very rocky shoreline. It is only a 15 minute walk down to the beach in Santa Ponsa (this could take much longer subject to how many shops you explore on the way down). A taxi back including tip is only 4 euro. Taxi ranks can be found at each end of the prom.
The staff are very friendly and hard working, and the hotel is kept very clean.
As one father said to me as his child headed off to the kiddiesclub "bliss 2 and a half hours of our time"
Would I go back - no but I have no hesitation in recommending it to families with young children.
