Spent one week in this hotel in October on a half board basis. Rooms not a bad size, bathroom small - clean but shabby. If you want a quiet room ask for back of hotel (overlooking aircon units of another hotel!). Location is good about 3 mins from beach but there are no views. Most of the staff appeared tired and bored, certainly lacking in hospitality skills. We had a fridge in our room which was locked - reception wanted to charge us 20 euro for the key! There was also a charge for the room safe.
Breakfast and dinner were buffet style and there was a fairly good choice. Not exactly inspiring, but edible. There is free wifi in the public areas but if you want to use the hotel internet there is a charge - I think 50 cent for 5 mins.
The pool area looked very nice but as we were out all day we didn't use it.
Santa Ponsa has some very nice restaurants but also lots of bars, "gentlemen's clubs" and lap dancing. Unless you are into this scene, I would definitely avoid it in the high season but it was very pleasant when we were there as most of the visitors were in the older age range - 40 upwards.
Majorca is a beautiful island but there are much nicer places to stay e.g. San Telmo and Puerto de Soller.
