“lovely hotel - dreadful guests”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

What a lovely first impression. Nice people enjoying themselves. Excellent staff. Good food and accomodation.
Weather changed, so did the guests. Stags, hens - drunkeness, shouting, swearing, banging doors and furniture in the early hours. Would have recommended this hotel to anyone until these people arrived. Such a shame that decent families had to put up with them.
The positives - Such lovely management and staff, so friendly and helpful. Great variety of food. Loved the childrens entertainment and the Cabaret routine was excellent. Bedding and towels changed regularly. Our room didn't have the best view but the higher numbers do. The views are truly beautiful.

Room Tip: Try to get a higher number as the lower one do not have such good views and the noise can be awful i...

stayed there for a week in april 2013. I couldn't fault the hotel for the friendly staff clean,spacious room with a great view. the food was quite good too in fact the only thing that spoilt our week was the arrival of a stag do then a hen do part way through the week with constant roudy drunken behaviour through out the day then shouting and banging in the early hours of the morning it kind of takes the shine off what could have been a good holiday.
The management of the hotel should make there minds up as to what sort of hotel they are running one for clubbers or one for familys the two DON'T mix.

Stayed a week here as part of a Solos walking group. Most hotel guests come on all inclusive deals. Hotel has 100-150 rooms and a couple of outdoor pools, which were clean and reasononably warm for time of year. Not much in the way of facilities though - this is a mass market rather than a luxury hotel. Rooms are spacious but a bit basic. Copious choice of food available in buffet style restaurant - generally good quality. Found reception staff very helpful. Hotel seems to be very well run. Didn;t use hotel bar so can't comment on that or quality of entertainment. Hotel is at top of hill overlooking bay and it was a real climb from my room to reception/restaurant - not suitable for older people. It's a steep climb back to hotel from centre of resot bu the hotel does have a complentary bus shuttle running every hour during day. Good views over bay from restaurant.

The resort itself has plenty of bars and restaurants offering very good value for money but the buildings seem to have been put up on a hurry in the 70s and 80s and lacks any local charm. However it;s a decent base for a holiday.

My neighbours were quiet but I would guess that noise could be a problem in some hotel tooms particularly in peak season.

Room Tip: Ask for room near reception if you don't like climbing steps. If you want a quieter room those a...

What a great little hotel. From the moment we arrived to the morning we left the staff were helpful and cheerful.

Accommodation ...
We were given an apartment 302, it was spacious, clean and a really great view. The beds aren't the the comfiest in the world but they were ok.

Food.......
The food is very nice and there is plenty of choice. The only comment would be that for some reason they don't put onion out with the salad ? So if you want onion with your salad you just have to ask.

Pool area.....
The pool is very clean and there are plenty of sun beds. They are a little tired but they are perfectly fine.

Entertainment.....
The animation team were great they got people up dancing and doing all manner of things Jay was very good.

We had a really nice time at the Club Santa Ponsa. Well done xx

Just back from Club Santa Ponsa. Was there for a long weekend with a friend and to be honest am struggling to find serious fault with the hotel. The beds are really not the comfiest and it is a mahoosive trek to the town centre well over 175 steps (I stopped counting at 175 on the way back up!) On the plus side, the apartments are large, the food is good, the hotel is very clean and the staff cannot do enough to help and always with a smile on their face. The views are amazing. And even the sun came out to play for a while.

Room Tip: Use the free shuttle bus to the town centre. It runs from 9am - 6pm Monday to Saturday.

we stayed in march with our 2 grandsons the hotel itself is clean friendly staff. the apartment was very spacious pool was warm food very good the only downfall was little entertainment they had a snake show and a singer not good for a seven night break. i would however go back.

Room Tip: ask for a room on upper level as many steps to contend with.
