“Good self catering apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Just returned from stay at surfing playa. Cannot fault apartments really, we had apartment with seaview, good size balcony and whilst apartment is basic they are clean with all you require for a comfortable stay, good value. We like its location in quieter area of santa ponsa. Also not a rowdy complex, pool area very chilled.

On arrival we checked in and the gentlemen was very ignorant, this put us off. However the apartment was very clean and spacious and the pool area was lovely, and is a good location. The only thing we wasn't keen on was all apartments have single beds, so we and my boyfriend had to push beds together and wasn't ideal. Grea value for money.

We stayed there last summer and we have booked it for next summer as well. The apartments are nice and clean, equipped with all you need, including air condition.
Located some hundred meters from the bar area of Santa Ponsa, just enough to get a good night sleep, and perfect walking distance when you want to join the night life.
Just 200 meters to a very nice beach.
We have found the best prices through Zleeping Hotels.
Looking forward to our next visit!

Been to the surfin playa twice now very good apartments. Great value for money. They are spotless the a/c is good too. We love santa ponsa and have stayed in many different places here we don't like to go to the Irish centre or any of those republican type bars so the surfin playa is far enough away without being too far from the bars and shops . Well worth a vist...

Surfing Playa is a nice apartment complex only 250 meters from the nearest beach and about 300 meters from the centre of Santa Ponsa. Nice and fully bright apartments fully equipped with bathroom, living room with kitchenette, bedroom, satellite TV and air conditioning. There is an inviting pool area with sun beds and sunshades. Very good value for money.Golf players can buy golf packages direct from the hotel, for the golf courts Santa Ponsa, Poniente, Bendinat and Son. I recomend thir apartment complex. Very friendly staff and good cleaning. poolarea is new.
You also have a very good restaurant 2 min walking from the complex with an excellent sea view.

Room Tip: reserve a sea view apartment, you would not regret it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We arrived on our Sept break at 10pm having used the express transfer (max 4 stops) with resorthoppa. Ideal as we were the only couple in the people carrier so effectively direct transfer.
Unfortunately due to a flash flood the previous week 4 apatments were unavalable so we were taxi'd to a sister hotel nr Palma Nova for a night which was absolutely superb. Arrived back the next day and was given a ground floor apartment which we didn't like, Spoke to reception and was given a third floor apartment with a view the next day as soon as onet became available.

The place is very clean and staff very friendly. Bit noisy as the walls are very thin. Ideal location for the Marina and quiter end of Santa Ponsa which is a lovely resort. Supermarkets, bars and restaurants 100 yards away. Plenty to choose from.

We would go back as have the numbers of the apartments with views. Basic but worth the money.
