Just returned from a week in Ponent Mar. Paid for a sea view apartment and got one overlooking the swimming pool aswell as the sea. Staff friendly, rooms are a little outdated as is common in Spain. The only gripe was that there were no where near enough plug sockets, just two spare behind the TV, which were quite well hidden. As someone already mentioned a kettle, microwave and toaster are now in all rooms, but with so little plug sockets (none in the kitchen) there wasn't really anywhere to plug them in. Kitchen had adequate utensils for cooking simple stuff, air con worked well, rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels and sheets etc. Hotel is situated on a small incline but nothing too challenging. The food at the pool side cafe was very hit and miss, i had a salad which was lovely but my husband had a burger which looked and tasted like a very poor quality frozen burger. We paid for breakfast one day and it was just OK, would have been disappointed if had gone bed and breakfast. Location just down the road from Palmanova's main strip. Few things going on in the hotel for both kids and adults (if you like that sort of thing, we don't) like a water gym session in the pool, spanish dancers performing etc. Overall we were quite pleased with the hotel and are thinking of going back next year.
