This was my first visit to this hotel although I am very familiar with Santa Ponsa and visit twice a year.
My reasons for changing hotels were that I fancied a bit of luxury, and I also wanted to try an adults only hotel. My expectations were well and truly surpassed, from entering the hotel on the first day, to checking out on the last.
We arrived at around 11am to find that our room wasn't ready, but would be ready at about 1, and we were directed to the bar to have a drink and relax, while a porter took our luggage to the luggage room. Arriving at the bar we were greeted by a cheerful barman who was quick to serve us with welcoming cool drinks. This was the case all week at the bar, no sooner had we sat down than someone was there to take our order.
At 1pm we went back to reception to check in, where we were given an explanation of the hotel facilities and allocated our room. When we enquired about our luggage, we were told, no worries, we will bring it for you in a few minutes. Our room was situated in the second building on the 6th floor, which meant we had a wonderful sea view over Santa Ponsa Bay and could hear the waves from inside the room if we left the balcony door open.
We had booked a senior suite, as I prefer a seperate bedroom and living accommodation. The bedroom was an ok size, we had two three quarter beds side by side, bedside tables and a biult in wardrobe which also contained the safe. The safe cost 15 euros for the week with a 5 euro deposit, well worth it for peace of mind. There was a bathroom containing the toilet and shower, the shower had lots of jets you could choose which ones you wanted to work at any time. Then outside the bathroom was the basin, and the huge bath with jets, this was positioned so you could see the view from the bath, but was still private. Beyond the bath was a breakfast bar with really nice lighting, and then there was the sofa bad, opposite this was the wide screen TV. Then out onto the balcony with table and chairs.
There was a fridge which contained 2 San Miguels, 2 cokes and 2 bottles each of still and fizzy water. This was topped up daily. Cleaning was to a very high standard, and I liked the eco touch of choosing when you wanted clean towels and bedding.
Breakfast and dinner were buffets, excellent choice of food at each, and the hot food was piping hot! At breakfast the waitress would bring a pot of coffee and hot milk, and if you wanted tea you could select that from the buffet in your own teapot. At dinner there was a wine list, the waitress came to take your order and served it to you at your table.
The staff were all very freindly and smiled all the time, always a buenos dias when you saw them, but they were never intrusive.
We were never disturbed at night, the room was very quiet, and just what we needed for a relaxing break.
