“Another great Holiday at Son Matias”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2010

Hi we have just returned from our 2nd visit this year to the Son Matias, what can I say? this really is a great Hotel, everything about it is realy really good and their attention to detail is the best I have ever seen. One word of warning though, the food is so good in this Hotel I have put 6 lb on in a week oh dear back on a diet, seriously though the food is excellant and all the Staff are brilliant.
Well Done to to all

Lovely hotel - great views for all. Food is fine - they did not over cook the caulifleur - first time ever in Spain I ate it. Good rule for Sunbeds - I appreciated this. Dining is a pleasure as they let you pick your own table and we ate outside 90% of the time. Lovely and quiet at night so could get enough sleep to enjoy the next day. Staff good, very clean room lovely.

we have just come back from son matias there were 4 of us all over 55 and we had a great time nice and quite ,,,the hotel had some young people in ,so its not just for over 60 as a lot of people think, its a mixed age group so you dont have to be a old age pensioner to go there,,,the hotel is clean and the pool is lovely plenty of sun beds they open the doors to the pool at 9am so you can get a sunbed , the food is good but it could be a better choice with the evening meal,, there is salad but not a lot of cold meats to go with it, the main meal is chichen or fish or rice and limited veg with chips or boiled potatoes,, then there is the sweets and 2 diffrent icecreams the only problem with the sweet is, if you get cake there is no cream to put on it so it is a bit on the dry side, unless you put hot custard on it or ice cream,, so for a 4/5 star hotel the food lets it down,, but you can get a snack at lunch time from the bar or snack bar round the pool and the price is not too bad,,apart from the poor food the hotel is great, with lovely rooms all seaview and only 9 floors,, I would go back to this hotel next time in palma nova,, it is better than some of the other 5 star hotels its just the food lets it down, but apart from that its great, on the beach and the shops and pubs are just outside the main entrance and magaluf is 5 mins walk away,, so you are in the middle of everything but it is still nice and quite.....so if you want a good clean quite hotel try the son matias, it also as good acts on in the bar at night and some nights they play bingo for about 30 mins and quiz nights too, so there is something for everyone,,,,,,,the reps work very hard to make you happy doing games in the pool and other games in the bar ,there is something going off everday to stop you getting bored,........if you want a good hotel this is the one for you.........I am sure you will be happy with it, give it a try,,,,,,,happy holidays...................

Stayed here with my partner matt from July the 18th- July 25 and it was one of the best holidays we have been on the hotel is great and loved the fact it was adults only ,we were on the 9th floor and the view was fantastic we emailed the hotel a week before and asked for a high floor and was given one the reception staff and all the staff were excellent loved the sun bed rule as it meant sunbeds were free unlike other hotels.

The entertainment staff heather and Clair were fantastic there lovely and we really enjoyed the games i read reviews on here saying that the games and hotel was for the over 60s that is complete rubbish we are in our mid 20 and we loved the entertainment and games depends on what you want from a holiday we wanted a nice relaxing fun holiday and thats what we got thanks to the great staff . The games were really enjoyable and competitve and finally on the last day I won a certificate and was given a medal for participating in the games which was really kind .The hotel is perfectly situated on the beach and is just lovely. The food was great quality and something for everyone.

We enjoyed the evening entertainment especially George P was really funny and entertaining ,The singer singing hits from the 70s and elvis was really good and the quizzes put on from the entertainment staff were enjoyable

First time at the Son Matias Beach hotel but we will be returning again. The rooms are clean and tidy, maid service every day. We only went into the pool area a couple of times as there is a rush to get the umbrellas in the morning and we wasnt that desperate so we paid the euros and went on the beach. Pool was nice,small but nice to go into. The jacuzzi was good too. Food is typical buffet, but its better than what we have had in different hotels. Proper bacon on a Sunday too. There was loads of choice and for those of us that only prefer English food, there is plenty of choice. Heather and Clare are the entertainment reps. They are very jolly and certainly make you feel welcome. The entertainment was ok for our 1st time there. Westlife tribute i could watch again and again lol. Didnt go to all the shows, think the comedian they had died on stage that night, i felt sorry for him. Didnt like the old time dance music at 8pm though, but thats cause its not for me. Its a no kids zone which is good for those that want a kid free holiday. Some say its catered for the older generation, a holiday is what you make of it, but we were singing with soultown swingers...your sex is on fire lol. No boozy young ones coming in at all hours so you could get to sleep at night although you do hear them along the sea front at night. We knew from the first 30 mins of arriving we wanted to return. We were never pressurised by reps to join in anything, it was purely your choice whether you did or not. Very relaxing time and no-one rushing you for anything. Thanks for the best holiday we have had in Majorca for the last 5 years since we have been going there. See you again for sure

My wife and myself have just returned from son matias beach hotel our 18 visit. we had a fantastic time as usual. the staff as always so welcoming. the hotel is so clean and in a fantastic position in resort from the manager down they can't do enough for you!! the food is great and caters for all tastes we meet all our old friends each year.clair and heather are great but the entertainment is getting very old hat the hotel prides itself on its repeat guests coming back year after year some of the turns have been there too long and need a shake up we seem to see the same turns year after year also not everyone likes the old time dancing 8 till 9 to say the hotel has 135 rooms and possibly 270 guests we only ever see 2 or 3 couples dancing !! why not do something for everyone the thompson reps are useless if you need any information ask Fiddella on the desk.she is great as are all the reception staff.. Carlos in the bar is also a good friend well as soon as we got home we booked for 2011 can't wait visit 19 the hotel gets better each year although it caters for the slightly older generation the atmosphere is great.

The best spot in Palma Nova, very close to an excellent beach and close to cafes, small shops etc. Good quality medium sized hotel with the benefit of being adults only. Watching decent evening entertainment without youngsters running about is a pleasure after many years of using "family" hotels. Maybe the buffet food lacks some imagination but is typical for this type of hotel. Our first time in this resort but may well stay here again.
