I just got back from a week long stay at the europa with my wife. I will say that the apartments are a little old and tired looking and need a spruce up.
That isn't to say we didn't have problems - The beds are certainly a bit ropey (we spent the week with a broken slat that they couldn't repair) our room also didn't have the right number of glasses and had a patio window that was broken in two.
That being said we popped to reception and saw the manager/lifeguard /bar maid. Within half an hour we had 5 clean glasses in our room and they had jerry rigged a fix for the bed (It didn't work - but they tried) she also arranged for a glazier to visit on the Monday and we was back on the Wednesday to fit the new window - can't ask for fairer than that - if you have problems see the dark haired lifeguard, she'll sort you out.
We were on the top floor of block c and did get invaded by ants a few times - but give them a good blast of spray they leave in the rooms and they soon don't want to be around.
All the rooms have this that get bbc1,bbc2 and itv.
Decent sized bathroom.
We had our towels changed twice and the room cleaned once.
There are safes in each room bit it costs 15euro to rent and 5euro deposit for the key :-(
There is site wide wifi, but that is password protected and costs 5euro a day.
The apartments have a nice sized pool - a little over 2metres in the deep end and a kiddy pool for little ones. The pool is illuminated at night with colour changing lights and is rather pretty. The only thing that let's it down are the steps - as they seem to be ripping free of the concrete.
On the plus side there are plenty of sun beds.
As for access to town and the beach it's a 5min walk if you find the right direction (head out the back of the hotel is my advice)
In my opinion the big thing that let's these apartments down is Sa Coma itself.
It is a little bit to tacky. Plenty of kiss me quick hats and English restaurants :-( (good for people with small children - not necessarily for young professionals)
There are 3 Chinese restaurants within spitting distance of each other - who goes to mallorca for a Chinese?
There are a couple of decent restaurants (el sol - for seafood, try the lobster & Bia - big open grill)
The beach is nice - pity people leave fag ends all over the sand.
Overall the hotel and resort are great if you don't go with super high expectations - that being said expect to have a really good time.
