I have just spent a week at the Son Matias after a weeks cruise and have to say I have loved every minute of it. The reviews below will lead you to believe that the rooms are small, the fridges are expensive, the staff are only nice to regulars, the beds are too hard and you'll be surrounded by old folk.....Yes, all of this IS true, but do not fear. The rooms are great, big 6ft bed, clean sheets every day, large bathroom with deep baths and nice hot shower. Lots of wardrobe space, laundry service, which is a huge help following a cruise. Yes, the fridge is about 18 Euro for the week but the shops sell cheap champers and frexinet so get buying and enjoy on the balcony, all chilled and lovely bubbly. The staff, Heather and Claire are a bit corney, but hey, they are very polite, more than happy to help and will chat for hours for leave you alone if you'd rather. They look after the older folk, we're in our 30's we can look after ourselves. The beds, have to admit they really are hard work, we found a bottle of brandy solved this problem, simply drink on balcony each night before bed and snooze away. Average bottle in supermarket is about a 10 euro.The average age of the hotel is around the seventy mark, and yes, they are all rude, some snobby and simply do not care. Good on em, why change just because you're on holiday. When I get to that age I'm going to be an old bugger too.You step out the hotel and to your right is a endless stream of pubs, resturants, little coffee and brandy stops for 2.70! Brilliant! Opposite is a pizzaria called Vicorys, lovely lunch and spectacular litre of sangria. If you step to your left and keep going for abour 10 mins you find yourself in Magaluf, Party place, night clubs, loads of booze and night life till dawn. The advantage being it's not on your door step, you can't hear it but it's there if you want it.The food.... what can I say, you WILL NOT EVER find a hotel with such excellent food. It caters very much for the british, we've had a full english each day, well at least when i could be bothered to drag myself from the all day sun balcony, fully expected to dine out a couple of nights but just did not need too, all english dishes, fish, joints of meat, full salad bar, soups, pate, loads of fresh fruit and massive weight bloating cakes. Discounts in the bar each night on different tasty beverages. Nothing really worth winging about to be honest, those who do and have need to learn how to chill out and go on holiday with someone you actually like instead of worrying that the staff don't talk to you enough. sad gits! Have a brilliant time, enjoy it. Lovely place, lovely hotel, lovely staff.
