“epic cycling holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

we stayed at the ponent mar as part of the stephen roche cycling camp.the cycling is high standard and epic and the staff excellent. hotel very clean and fresh. rooms good - power shower and lots of hot water, beds comfortable and plenty of space.would recommend a travel kettle if you like an early morning cup of tea. food buffet excellent, with plenty of good quality, locally sourced food - perfect for cyclists. hotel in great situation, quiet area of son caliu, with beautiful sea views and lovely pool area. hotel has little supermarket for all your water and essentials - perfect. we will definitely be visiting again!

We have stayed here 6 times in the last 5 years. The accommodation is spotless and cleaned 6 days a week. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is excellent. Perfect for young children. It is a quiet hotel but a 5 minute walk takes you to the hassle and bustle of Palma Nova. We will be returning.

We visited Ponent Mar in the off-season. It has the rustic charm of old-time seaside establishments. It's not glamourous or flashy, but it's clean and comfy. Located right on the bay, the view is stunning. The staff are friendly, obliging, and, importantly, speak English. The meals are good, with great variety.

Best hotel I ever stayed on...all things are perfect.
Staff is wonderful,food excellent and the area wonderful.
Hope that I could stay there every summer.
You can relax there but if you want to have some fun, you can always visit Magaluf only half hour walk or so,

Palma Nova has a nice beach with clear water. And in the area there are different types of restaurants. And the apartment hotel Ponent Mar is only a 5 minutes walk away from this.
It´s located on a little hill so you are away from the noise of cars and shouting people who have drunk too much. We also combined trips to Palma, easy to reach by the local bus.
The pool is large enough for the number of guests and for once enough sunbeds.There is also a heated indoor pool which we didn`t try. The service in the restaurant was better than the food, but usually we made our own breakfast and had dinner at restaurants near the hotel, among the best: Port of Call and My Thai.
When we arrived we visited the room we had got, but asked to be shown an upgraded room. And it was worth upgrading for the 20eur per day.
The service at the reception varied quite a lot. Two middle-aged men I would recommend a new course in service or they could learn a lot from the other receptionists.
There´s a small supermarket in the hotel (buy the water there) and a large one 10 minutes away.If you´re not interested in partying and Magaluf, this is a hotel for you

Room Tip: I would suggest ocean view. Look at the room before you decide. We upgraded and didn´t regret

Came to this hotel in september for five days with my mum and brother. We wanted an apartment as a base and I felt this hotel was perfect for what we wanted.

On arrival we were given a bigger room which was a bonus. The hotel was in a nice posision out of the way from the resort and lovely sea views. It was a ten minute walk into the centre of palma nova and a cheap taxi ride to magaluf.it was a perfect hotel to relax, could always get a sunbed. There was a lovely peaceful terrace to sunbathe overlooking the sea. Never ate in the hotel or seen the entertainment so can not comment. There is an onsite shop selling essentials but its a ten minute walk to mercadona which has a better choice. The pool area was nice and could always get a sunbed. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, we went to stadium bar on our last night which in in the centre, different tributes on every night, motown was brilliant. Would definatly go back to this hotel if I go back to palma nova.
