We stayed at this hotel 4th to 18th July 2014 - travelling with our 2 daughters ages 17 and 21.
Our first summer holiday taken out of the school holiday time for some 15 years and with our older offspring enjoying a more adult environment we were expecting great things - and were not disappointed.
We had reserved 2 rooms - requesting high floor rooms close together. Upon arrival our rooms were not ready (we had an early flight) but were able to change clothes ready for the pool in the spa area and use the all inclusive facilities.
Upon room allocation we were delighted to be upgraded to Superior Suites on level 5 as the sea view suites we had booked were full. These were gorgeous - with extensive outdoor areas having sun loungers, Balinese day bed, chairs and tables. We viewed ourselves as being very lucky!!
The views from the hotel are just stunning - and always boat activity to watch.
The variety, quality and presentation of food and drink are exceptional. The all inclusive package is the best we have experienced outside of the Caribbean. There was delicious fish served up during main meals - huge prawns and lobster too. Fruit platters and lovely little cakes and mousses .Breakfasts were incredible too,
A wide variety of cocktails were available - beautifully presented with fruit. Try the Long Island Iced Tea!!
We enjoyed swimming in the sea - lots of fish to see - and easy access via metal ladders.
Sun loungers around the pool were adequate - if tightly packed!
We did glance into the Star Prestige pool area - which looked cramped. Overall we were glad to be in the main part of the hotel.
Staff were lovely - efficient and polite.
Our daughters went into Santa Ponsa a couple of times and enjoyed a few quiet cocktails. They also ventured to BCM in Magaluf and had a great night. Discounted tickets are available from the Thomas Cook Rep Rita.They also made use of the hotel WiFi costing 25Euros for 2 weeks.
You will have a great time at this hotel - our first time at an Iberostar and hopefully not our last.
