Was recommended these apartments and had a look on TripAdvisor before booking and was really pleased with the reviews. I have been to Santa Ponsa loads of times but never stayed down this end of the resort before so was a bit unsure but we got a brilliant price through Jet2 and the reviews swung it.
Overall I'm glad we stayed there as the staff are all brilliant with nothing too much trouble. The rooms are cleaned every second day and clean towels given which was great.
However, there are no lifts (apart from one we toty one at reception) and if you are unlucky to be at the back of the block then you may end up knackered. I emailed the apartments to ask for a low floor and pool view but as we booked through a travel company such as Jet2 instead of direct with Holiday Park this could not be guaranteed. Luckily we did get a good room which was only 3 floors up! If you have walking difficulties I would think twice and we also saw families with buggy's carrying them up and down stairs.
The wee concierge guys will carry your cases to your room and they were great but don't think they would sling you over their shoulders and take you to your room at the end of each night?
The pool is great fun and pool bar is good with the food superb. Tuna Baguettes, Salads and Club Sandwiches were the highlights. Daughter loved the chicken nuggets. However really busy at times especially at lunch which usually coincided with the BINGO!
There are no safety deposit boxes in the room which is a bit rubbish but they are in reception but very very small and would not even fit an IPAD. However the reception kept a hold of any items that were too big if we were going to the beach or waterpark but didn't hear about any issues about the apts for theft.
You also have to pay 40 Euros for air conditioning, surely this should come as standard?
Another negative is that if you leave your sunbed for more than 20 mins then your towels will be taken off. We saw this happen a couple of times either by the pool workers or random people which isn't good. If you put your towels down too early in the morning as well then they are also removed. The owners should get enough beds for all of the guests as there was plenty of room for more and this would put me off going back as could start a riot!
The apartments are well run though with no trouble and quiet at night. It is close to the Deya Apartments though and these are really noisy but didn't bother us.
As advised we had a brilliant holiday here with the nicest people and staff and we are glad we went but depending on which apartment you are put in could change this experience.
Btw, I would recommend Fat Sams which is an American Diner / Mexican that we return to every year. Food is totally brilliant but you may have to wait 30 - 45 mins for a table but you can order drinks while waiting. Food is worth it and the quality and quantity excellent.
