Firstly , on our arrival at the Sa Coma Playa apartments as we got off of the bus the driver told us it was not our drop off point and we were booked into a hotel which he took us to , on trying to book in to hotel we were told we were at the wrong place and this happens all the time, so a taxi ride and seven euros lighter in pocket we arrived back at or original drop off point which was Sa Coma Playa apartments, on checking in we explained about the problem with the transfer and we were told the same, this happens all the time. My point in mentioning this is , firstly it is no reflection on the Sa Coma Apartments as this is not under their control , but it it is just a bit of advice to people travelling to this resort ,please ensure when you are getting dropped off you have your document with the name of hotel/apartment in you hand to show the driver to ensure you are at the right place, I have my own thoughts as to why people get dropped off at at wrong hotel/apartments and then have to get a taxi to the correct destination.....as mentioned before I was told "It happens all the time".........by the way we found out later had we known the resort the taxi fare would have been around three Euros so please be warned, I think somewhere along the line there is a scam going on with transfer companies. Well that part done I will move on to our stay at the Sa Coma Apartments .
Check in was absolutely simple receptionist was very helpful and absolutely no language barrier at all , strange thing on check in which we have never came across before is that there is a ten Euro deposit on wristbands bands for all inclusive , that in itself was no problem as obviously you get this back at end of holiday but it gave me something to think about during the holiday......why a ten Euro deposit for a bit of plastic? then bingo!!! a bell rang in my head if you count the number of people staying in these apartments paying ten Euros a head per week throughout the year that is a hell of a lot of Euros getting put into a bank account gaining interest for a wee bit of plastic brilliant!!!!
Now on to the apartment , what can I say on this .....absolutely everything you could ask for , fridge,cooker, all the kitchen equipment you could ask for , our apartment was combined sitting room/kitchen area which I assume is standard throughout the apartments, I found the bedroom small and enclosed, there is no air conditioning in these apartments and in the height of summer made it an uncomfortable sleep but in saying that the option was to sleep in the living area , which I did on a couple of occasions.
Now we move on to the balcony and view..............WOW!!! superb , please ask for a room with an even number from the first floor (not ground) up to the sixth floor and you will get one of the most wonderful sea views you could imagine ( worth the price of the holiday in itself).
Now for the food, I personally am a very fussy eater, but I can assure you from breakfast time through to dinner time you will will never be without something to eat , no sooner are you finished breakfast that snacks are laid on, burgers,hot dogs, crepes,sandwiches, varies by the day....refreshments at lunch/dinner are serve yourself to wine/coke/fanta/ beer as much as you like no hassle. First impressions of dining area was it was too cramped and would be uncomfortable to eat in ....but I am more than happy to say I was wrong, it did not matter what time of day or night we went in ,no matter how busy the dining area was the staff were so efficient there never was a problem getting a table, and they are all happy to have a chat with you.....when they get a minute to themselves!!! which is not often...lovely people.
Pool area, entertainment, bar staff.............Pool area is a really good size with plenty of sunbeds, when we stayed we had no problem at all getting sunbeds, none of this getting up at seven o'clock in the morning throwing towels over them, also stage area had plenty of tables and chairs as an option to lying down sunning yourself, if you are a swimmer the pool is quite restricted for a good swim but sufficient enough if you get in before it gets too busy .
Entertainment: : What can I say here? the team are on all day and provide "entertainment" and work really hard at what I would call absolute CRAP!!! I really don't want to go in to depth on this one but if you enjoyed Benny Hill forty years ago it,s your kind of thing.......
Finally, all inclusive rules two drinks per wristband errrmmm , nah !!!! bar staff don't mind if you ask for more as they are so busy, as long as you you don't want to "window shop" and know your order it will be served in double quick time with a smile ,,,,brill!!.. next word of warning, all inclusive at bar finishes promptly at 22:30hrs not one minute later, then you have to pay, again bar staff have no problem if you "stock up" and fill your table up until 22:30hrs and you can sit and enjoy until your bed time. All in all we had a great time and would go back tomorrow if possible, I have tried to make this review as comprehensive as possible and hope it has been helpful ..........Main two tips out of this.....ask for even number room for sea view (odds are pool view) ........stock up table before 22:30hrs.not a minute later!!!!!!..........enjoy your holiday !!!
In my opinion any even numbered room from first floor will be perfect sea view.
