“Hotel very clean.........lovely staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

It was our first time to this hotel and Santa Ponsa and for the money we paid it was good value, we went all inclusive. The breakfasts were very good ........the selection of food at night was ok we always managed to eat. The snacks around the pool in the day were good but you also had the choice of eating in the restaurant at lunchtime where there was a good choice of food.We found the bar staff to be really friendly .......in fact all of the staff were excellent. I reported that my door to the balcony did not lock and it was fixed within the hour. The staff on reception were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble.The rooms are dated but really clean and I think thats all that matters. The walls are thin and you can hear people coming to bed at night but that did not bother us. We did have trouble getting a sunbed and for the size of the hotel the pool was rather small but we just went to the beach . The entertainment team are really good but do not hassle you to join in. The resort itself is wonderful I will definately be returning ,we went to palma for the day and I would recommend doing this but don't do the organised trip its better to go and please yourself. This hotel is good value it was the staff that made it extra special and Santa Ponsa is gorgeous hopefully we will be returning.

This hotel was excellent. Restaurant and food very good. The rooms were clean and well furnished. Just a short walk from the beautiful sandy beach. Hotel had a lovely foyer and was most welcoming. This was our first time in Santa Ponsa and we found it a lovely resort, for couples and families. Lots of places to walk, bars to visit and places to eat. Two great fish and chip shops as well. Would definately go back.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the front of the hotel, a couple of floors up. We found this not to be a problem...

all inclusive? i think not what a rip-off firstly 3,00 euros a day for safety deposit box (i know sometimes you have to pay for this) fridge 3,00 euros a day kettle hire 12,00 euros a week (what about this one) 50,00 euros for a late check-out tv remote 10,00 euros (dont know if thats for a week) you get drinking water in the restaurant but watch-out if you take it out they come at you like a ton of bricks, miserable arrogant staff in the restaurant food bland desserts like childrens choices (jellys, mousses,that sort of stuff) cleaners were brilliant friendly and immaculate and kept everything immaculate i`m deaf and wear 2 hearing-aids and take them out at bedtime but the noise omg lorries motorbikes all day long we had to go for walks on the sea front to get away from it (i think the road at the side of our room was a short cut)

Room Tip: dont get a room on the roadside (above reception)

This is the 3rd time we have been to this hotel.And its a great hotel .The hotel is in a great persion 2 min walk to the beach,and 5 mins in to resturants,pubs and shops.The entertainment team are great max works hard and you can tell he enjoys his job.The food is very good and the drinks are good.The pool area is very relaxing and plenty of beds,need a few more umbrellas.The hotel is very clean,the maids are cleaning all the time.Santa Ponsa is a lovely place to holiday,and the fire work display in september is fantastic.People who moan about this hotel dont no what they are talking about,its clean good food and drink good entertainment and good price.This is only a 3 and a half star.I have stayed in five and four stars that have been great,but this is not and you get what you pay for,a good 3 half star.

Room Tip: second floor looking over pool also looks over the stage.so if you have to go up early with young ki...

Stayed here in july for four nights, cant knock it, rooms nice size and clean, good air con, food above average and close to everything. Parking is quite difficult around this hotel. As all spanish hotels you will struggle to get a sun bed

We have stayed at most hotels in Santa Ponsa ,and like the area very much.The Rey Don Jaime was as good as you can expect from 3stars.The food was plentiful ,although some was cooked to death ,we would have been hard pushed to starve !!! The chef on the carvery was hilarious and insisted on us having a plateful of meat at every sitting .He said the English dont eat enough meat.The rooms are basic but kepy very clean ,why do people moan about the T.V ? We never had ours on at all during our stay.The entertainment was winding down but we had some enjoyable shows and bingo bongo was always a giggle ,and i won 200 euros so i was happy.The entertainment staff were brill especially Max he never forgot the names of the handicapped girl we had with us and she totally fell in love with him .All in all a very enjoyable holiday .

Room Tip: If you are not satisfied with the room ask for another one
