“Liked it a lot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This modern, smart and friendly hotel is well located and was good value for money. The staff were attentive, chatty and, well, plain nice (Manuel, Dania and Marco take a bow!). The food was also good - breakfast was continental buffet style with a good choice. Dinner menu on half board was a little limited and portions were not massive (which suited us in the hot climate) but excellent quality. It's less than five minutes to a lovely beach. We had a wonderful week's stay.

i stayed in this hotel in 2009 before the refurbishments. i loved it then but adore it now!! the staff are excellent and communication was brilliant. i emailed the hotel earlier to request a certain room and on my arrival, it was there for me with complimentary fridge.
the breakfast is excellent, so much choice with very good quality products. this is the first hotel abroad that i have been able to drink the juice. with regards to the drink prices, the bar across the road was much more expensive and it was serving cheap local spirits at an higher price than the hotel's imported liquer.
the location is excellent as it is next to some excellent restaurants ans the free wifi in the hotel is an added bonus. i will definately be staying here again!!!

This hotel is first class. We spent 12 nights there in August 2012 as a family vacation. It is located a few minutes walk from the main beach and some excellent restaurants. Breakfast was great...extensive range of hot and cold food including cured and cooked meats, cereals,cheeses, fruit and pastries accompanied by fruit juices and coffee. Service from the attentive and meticulous staff is commendable and the levels of cleanliness for a beach resort hotel is to our minds, unsurpassed. Rooms are spacious, well maintained and spotlessly cleaned by attentive maid daily. Pool area is well maintained and decor in and around hotel has modern appeal. The hotel is perhaps aimed more towards couples than families but the staff were nevertheless accommodating with our youngster and given that Santa Ponsa is a family resort I would encourage the hotel management to maintain a family-friendly approach...the hotel bar was fantastic - understated chic with a trendy vibe and good background music and the bar man, Mark was extremely professional. friendly and mixed all drinks from cocktails to gin and tonics with flair and attention. Nothing was too much trouble day or night..Our breakfast server, Jean-Claire was also very attentive and always welcoming with a smile. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples and families looking for quality accommodation in a great location. we will certainly return

This hotel is not the Ritz but it is Ok and the Food is superb, the dinner hall is fantastic, massive range of cooked and cold meats. Freshly cooked prawns on offer too! Pool area was clean as was the majority of the hotel and the rooms are immaculately cleaned everyday. Recommend for a relaxing week.....

Room Tip: Don't get a room facing the front road as you can hear the noisy crowds in the bars up till 4am!

A lovely hotel with super location to beach and restaurants. The interior was tastefully decorated and the exterior space was well used. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend booking this hotel.

This hotel was just a 5 minute walk from the gorgeous sandy beach in Santa Ponsa and very close to many restaurants catering for all tastes, also local souvenir/convenience stores. What we liked most about this hotel was it's cleanliness, smashing hotel with a friendly personal service from all the staff, especially the reception staff, nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Room's 312 and 313 over looking the pool, above the bar were very quiet
