My Mum and I have just paid another visit to this wonderful hotel and it is as good as ever. Once again we have come back more refreshed and relaxed than holidays we have had elsewhere.
There is a lovely relaxed feel to the whole place, and the facilities are excellent. Everywhere in the hotel - the rooms, restaurant, grounds and pools were spotlessly clean.
As good as the facilities are, I think it is the staff that really set this hotel apart. Everyone is friendly and polite. The staff seem to genuinely care about all the guests and can't do enough to help. It was so nice to be remembered and welcomed back by many of the staff. In particular Chej, the manager, is fantastic – he is so friendly and welcoming, has time for everyone and is always around and much more visible and involved than managers in other hotels where I have stayed.
My thoughts on some of the key areas:
Room facilities - the rooms are furnished to a high standard and are modern, large and airy. Beds are firm but comfortable and there is a bed settee. A kettle and tea/coffee are supplied and the mini-bar can be used as a fridge, as things can be removed if you don’t want to use them. TV gets a good range of English Channels including various BBC channels (CBeebies included!), ITV, and Channel 4.
Bathrooms are wonderful with large walk-in showers.
Our room faced the main pool and got afternoon sun. Rooms on the other side (facing the Biomar Spa) had morning sun. This was fine for us being late in the season, but may get a bit too warm in the height of the season.
There is free Wi-fi in reception areas, and I could get this most of the time in the bedroom as well (first floor) but speed was better in reception.
Food – We went half-board as we tend to go out during the day. We found the food to be excellent with a good choice. You can eat really healthily if you wish (loads of salad, fruit, fish) or indulge a little more. As well as the buffet dishes there is fresh meat and fish on the ‘show’ cooking section, plus an option to have a fresh stir-fry cooked with your choice of ingredients. There a wide variety of desserts many in small individual ‘taster’ portions – mousses, jellies, small cakes etc., plus a cheese table. Breakfast also has a good choice – and the freshly cooked pancakes seemed very popular. I was ‘forced’ to have my favourite Majorcan almond cake at breakfast was well!
Pools and sun beds – there are two pools, with the smaller one at the front of the hotel being much quieter, which might suit some with small children, or if you want a peaceful spot. The larger pool is excellent and was never crowded while we were there. There are plenty of sun beds (which are much more comfortable and adjustable than those in many hotels or on the beach!) and although a few people putting down towels early there never seemed to be an issue with not being enough. In addition to the sun beds there are cabanas along one side that are brilliant if you want more shade, especially for young babies.
Spa - The spa is right next door linked by a covered walkway. The hydro-therapy pool was great – different jacuzzi areas, bubble beds, water massages from umbrella things pouring water, plus saunas and steam rooms, brilliant for relaxing, especially on a day that is not quite so good weather-wise.
Local area – I think that Sa Coma Playa is in a excellent position if you like to get out and about. It is in a quiet area, on the edge of Sa Coma. Walking one way takes you to Sa Coma, then on to S’Illot. The beach this way is about a 10 minute walk and is a beautiful curved bay, with plenty of sunbeds and water sports facilities. There are boat trips available from the end of the bay,
Walking the other way takes you to the edge of Cala Millor, with another excellent beach – longer than that in Sa Coma. You could then walk all the way up to Cala Bona, which has a small but interesting port. If you don’t want to walk (it is quite a long walk if it is hot!) there is an open-top bus which runs about every 30 minutes. There are also a land train and taxis can be ordered by the hotel. It is about €5 to Calla Millor and €7-8 to Cala Bona.
Immediately opposite is a headland (Punta de N’America) which makes an interesting walk to the castle there (there is a cafe at the end to help revive you after the walk!). From here there are fantastic views both towards Cala Millor and Sa Coma and beyond. There are also walks through the woods which form part of the nature reserve on the headland.
Overall I think it is a reflection on how good Sa Coma Playa is and how happy guests are that so many return again (and again!). We saw guests who we had seen on our visits both last year and earlier this year and a number of people we spoke to who were first time visitors said they would come back. This applies to a whole range of ages as well - families groups with children, couples of all ages and larger groups. I don’t think there are many hotels now that have so many returning guests, but holiday time is precious so when you find somewhere that helps make the most of it, why not come back.
We will certainly hope to return again next year!
