“Great hotel, friendly staff = great holiday. 28 august to 4 september 2011”
We have recently come back from santa ponsa. I decided to book the playas del rey after much review reading and so glad i did. We had a lovely clean, and beutifully decorated room facing over the swimming pool . The hotel reception and restaurant were tastefully decorated and very clean and we always received a pleasant hello from the staff and very helpful information. The cleaners came into our room daily with fresh towels and made the beds. The pool was clean and tidy and the sun terrace was a lovely place to sunbath. Breakfasts were great with lots of choice, toast, cereals, sausages, scrambled egg and bacon, and of course yogurt, cheeses and ham. The evening meal was a set menu each evening. Although as mentioned by other reviewers the choices on the menu were limited but you could not fault the quality and the presentation of the food served to us. You have a choice of one starter perhaps the hotel could reconsider adding a couple of choices to the menu. Both my husband and daughter dont like fish so they didnt eat some of their evening starters. For us the main courses were tasty meat or fish dishes,and lovely deserts. The restaurant staff were great and it was a pleasure to dine. The hotel you could tell has had a lot of money spent on the refurbishment over the winter.
santa ponsa is 20 minutes away on the bus to palma and you can catch a bus from the plaza for 2.95 euros each. We headed of to palma, a beutiful place, one day then went back to palma again to catch an old wooden train from palma to soller a lovely town for about 17.00 euros and later we took a tram to the harbour for 4.oo euros. well worth it a must if you like to explore. the week we arrived in santa ponsa there was a festival going on for two weeks with music and entertainement which gave the place a great atmosphere. Also we took snorkels as we found a point as you turn left out of the playas del ray, a little cove where we could swim and see a multitude of fish and even an octupus. We even walked to the top of some steep steps on one side of the bay which was well worth it for the views. enough said hope this helps you decide.
we had a pool view room which was great
