After staying at a nearby hotel on the beach of Palma Nova for the last 10 years , and finding it slowly deteriorating, I was advised by my friends, Richard and Sandra , to change to the SON MATIAS. What a difference !!
This Hotel is superior in every way to the other Hotel,
It is clean and comfortable,quiet at night,with excellent accomodation, entertainment,location and food.
Free water in your room on arrival, along with tea/coffee making facilities , flat screen T.V with 7 English Channels and comfortable balcony furniture.
Staff and Management are friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
I cannot praise this Hotel enough.
They even police the sunbeds at the poolside, no one is allowed to utilise the beds for the day when they are away from the pool.Allowing everyone equal opportunity to use them.
However there are still the sick fools who queue up an hour before the pool opens to grab the same bed every morning, these selfish people are the only fault I could find, but this is not the fault of the Hotel, and after they have grabbed their beds there are still plenty left.
I have already booked again for next year,and will never stay again at the nearby SANTA LUCIA.

Room Tip: Email the Hotel before going and ask for the room of your choice, they will gladley oblige,but all r...

I have stayed in this hotel a few times including June and August this year. Great locaation, friendly staff and good food. The daytime entertainment is not great but the evening entertainment is good. As I travel with a disabled person I have tried to book a disabled room. You have to book a Junior Suite as three of these are adapted but you don't know if you have got an adapted room or not until you arrive!!! I have tried for next June and all are taken.

Room Tip: all rooms are seaview

stayed here in 2007 and in April this year, very good service all rooms have sea views and are bright, very clean and comfortable. The staff are very good and make you feel welcome. The food is suited to british taste, with a little local choice as well. Only negative was that evening entertainment could do with a little updating, (no Bingo please !!)

First class hotall in every way, location and room views are the best you will get, Food Excellent,Service 1st class in all areas (Reception,Bars and Domestic Staff)Entertainment Top class.
Entertainment staff very friendly and always ensure your stay is not boring what ever the weather something going on all day and night from Games,Quizzes,Bingo,Wii games and Evening Entertainment very good. Bar staff very professional and drinks presentation very good.
