I went there for Easter holidays and was really good. The staff is lovely, the food is good and with good variety and the location is perfect close to beach and to shopping center. The rooms are not big but cleaned. The staff from tour operator (Maddy and Stefano) were a good combination of pushing when necessary and take it easy when the glass was already full. What else? A small problem during the check in for the flight back but it was sorted on time. Try it if you want to relax.

Please try this hotel for yourself. I visited with my 13 yr old son. An absolute delight. This hotel is beautiful, situated in a quiet street, if you want the bizz you can walk, (not major steep hills), or get a taxi. The staff were all lovely, from checking in, to the restaurant, to the bar. Rosa is a lovely manager who you can approach anytime. Angel the barman was an absolute gentleman and a credit to the hotel. Our cleaner was a wee darling, every day she cleaned our room. The restaurant staff were very pleasant, travellers seem to forget that maybe these people are foreigners too!! The entertainment guy Gio was there for 6 weeks to start the hotels season and was great, tried very hard to involve everybody as the age range was very varied.
The food fabulous, the location fabulous, the weather even more!!
I was half board and next time will definately go AI.
Try it, and if you go on holiday seeking out negatives then your missing out!!!

Room Tip: On the third floor on same side as hotel entrance, sun in the morning, but didn't matter we were...

Myself and my boyfriend are currently doing a tour of the island' we are spending just one night in each destination so we wanted to make sure that our one night in each place is special. We are both so impressed with the level of service. The staff here are so friendly and helpful, we asked Rocio on reception for some advice on where to eat, she really took her time with us and was so helpful and lovely. In the morning Pirjo was really great and friendly, we had to check out by 12 which gave us enough time to have a lie in and get all our stuff packed, we were also allowed to chill by the pool even after we had checked out. This is a hotel with great views and great service .perfect location. We would definitely come here again!!!!

dont go if you cant walk up a hill dont go if you dont speak german even the staffs second language is german apart from that nice clean hotel .Most of the staff were very pleasent the beach is nearby all be it up a hill back to the hotel.Not a problem for me but my husband has mobility problems.If i had known this i wouldnt have booked .Didnt have much company as the other guests were mostly german and kept themselves to themselves .Had to pay for a fridge in the room it was 50 euros non refundable but my husband needed it for medication.The only english channel was BBC world news on a loop the receptionist told me it was a satalite problem but i think he fibbed.Sunbeds were reserved with towels in a regimented fashion two reserved miss one two reserved miss one .so we had to go to the beach to swim.The sun beds on the beach were very expensive at 13.50 euros per day but the pool was out of bounds because of the towel situation.

Dear Janis,

Thank you very much to share with us you comments about your stay in Hotel Delfín Mar. Regarding the tip of the towels at our swimming pool, we're yet working on the way to improve this. We really can't act as policemans for our guest, but we are working on how to act when we detect that somebody is occupiyng a sunbed just with a towel. And regarding the nationality of our guests, it really depend if there's some group, because we use to haver guests from all Europe countries. Thank you again to take a time writing and helping us to improve our work.

Kind regards,
Puri

4 Day stay

The location of this hotel is perfect, its 5 minutes to the beach and shops ( the hotel is up a small hill). Our room was cleaned each day, clean towels and the beds were comfy! The room was no smoking however there was an ashtray on the balcony.There were 2 English channels on the t.v (BBC world news & Disney )you also need a deposit on the remote control but for the sake of 2 channels we didn't bother. Wifi is free but only available in the public area's its not avalable in your room.
Our room was next to the lift so did get a bit noisy with people coming in on a night, the plus part is all the corridors are carpeted so you don't hear the suitcases being wheeled at all hours!
The choice of food was good and really nice so if you picky like me you'll be fine. You just find a table and go get your food nobody takes your room number or anything. Drinks were ok price wise a 500ml water was 2.10 euro.
I don't think there were any other English in the hotel so there was no conversation with any guests. The sunbed situation was a bit unfair the rules in the room (and there were many of them) state sunbeds must not be reserved or towels will be removed ! this is not the case. Some towels were out at breakfast time until tea time with no one using them! On our last night when were were coming back we noticed the beds reserved at 11.30pm As there is limited sunbeds and space around the pool i think this is unfair on the guests that want to sunbath!! The hotel towels were 10euro deposit plus 1.50 for cleaning. We took our own kettle but they are available to hire. The safe was to pay for aswell. The only down side to the room was no fridge which is a shame when you have cold drinks and no where to store them - warm coke is never the same!!!
the swimming pool was nice not too cold so you don't have to get in bit by bit!! The indoor pool was all in darkness whilst we were there. The hotel kindly opened the breakfast area up so we could have something before we left at 7am. I would come back to this hotel again despite the little faults.

This small hotel has almost a boutique type feel to it and it ticked so many boxes for us. Its near shops bars and the beach but not on top of them, the rooms are pleasant and cleaned daily and the hotel facilities are good. The food was nice with good choices and reasonable bar prices and we would certainly recommend this hotel to family and friends if they were considering a stay in Santa Ponsa.
Customer service however could be improved as we tasted good and bad in this area.
We were given a high floor with nice views as requested but i was rather miffed to see a customer receive a free bottle of bubbly for her birthday, when in fact it was my wifes birthday that day too, and she got nothing! Perhaps it was an oversight even though they were holding our passports, and her birthday was mentioned in our reservation request. I hope it wasnt favouritism for our continental friends who dominate the hotel, but more of that later.
We were also let down a little by the hotel staff who took 24 hrs to get us extra pillows despite been asked three times on the day of arrival, within one hour of checking in, at the evening meal, and that same night. We were also let down by hotel staff who failed to move what seems the compulsory reserving of sun beds by our German and eastern European friends who frequent the hotel. Not satisfied with rising at dawn to put towels on, it now seems guests can put them on the night before ! When you dont speak those languages you really are left to the hotel staff to enforce what is written in their own policy. On a more positive note it was nice that the hotel opened the dining room early to allow us some breakfast on the day of our early departure.

Other niggles include paying for a safe, paying for a remote control, and paying for a kettle ( we brought our own) and these things along with the fact there is no fridge in the room really dont make the hotel a four star in my eyes , but even then we would stay again as the good points in our eyes outweigh the bad!

I will be interested to see if the hotel management do comment on this review, but before they suggest i should have raised my issues with a manager, i would like to say really ? To have to get a manager after asking the front desk/reception three times for a pillow ? To have to ask them to follow their own rules CONCERNING THE RESERVING OF SUN BEDS ?
Such a shame really because had we not had these experiences i would have rated it excellent!

Room Tip: ask for high floor

Regarding your comments, we have quality patterns that clearly don't goes on that way. We are yet checking the circumstances in order to find why they doesn't work for you. Regarding the reserving sunbeds, we will study what we can do to improve communication of standards.
Thank you again for your comments.

we stayed in this hotel in June 2013 on a half board basis. It was clean and tidy and food choice was reasonable, but we were the only english people there at the time and the rst were a mixture of german, russian and eastern europe, nothing wrong with that, but not so easy to meet people and they all seemed to be on all inclusive too.
It is in a handy place for the beach and the quiter side of the bay with bars and restaurants nearby.
The main negative for our group was that you had to be in the restaurant for the evening meal by 2000 at the latest, never known that before and it did spoil it a bit for us.
