We have recently returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel. This was our 4th visit to Mallorca, but our 1st visit to this hotel and this area of the island. After this holiday, I doubt very much that anywhere else we stay in Mallorca at the price we paid, will exceed our experience at the Ponent Mar.
We didn't pay for a sea view - our room was on the side of the building - but by simply turning round the chairs on the balcony, we had a sea view after all!
The room was spotlessly clean, and was serviced daily. There was nothing even slightly shabby about it, unlike other places we have stayed at in the same price bracket.
The entertainment was more cultured than raucous, but sometimes all you want is a quiet evening - there's plenty of higher octane fun in the pubs and bars in Palma Nova for when you fancy a big night out. Importantly, the other guests were respectful of others, and we weren't kept awake by people coming in at all hours, unlike other places we've stayed at.
We ate in the restaurant only once, and it was excellent.
On leaving the hotel to go out for a wander, the obvious thing to do is turn left, down the the sea front. On our 5th day, we decided to explore in the other direction, and just round the corner we found Zanzi's Bar, which offered shade from the sun, good company, great service, and well priced drinks. Inside there is a Wii with a wide selection of games, which kept our son happy, and allowed him to make friends with kids of his own age, and gave all the parents some time to chill out too - perfect recipe for a great holiday!
We will be back!
