Club Santa Ponsa - Location

I've seen a few reviews talking about Club Santa Ponsa being at the top of a steep hill. Can anybody give me an idea of how steep the hill is? Also, how far is it from the main square? I've had a look on maps but I'd appreciate an opinion on how walkable it is.

cheers

The hill is indeed very steep, but not a mountain! My husband has a dodgy hip and I have asthma and we can walk up if we fancy it, although truth to tell we usually don't as we jump in a taxi for 4 euros, or wait for the free bus back during the day.

Not sure what you mean by the main square? It's about 20 minutes walk down to the beach and the main shopping area, but only about 5 minutes walk to the square where the entertainment is on a night.

The thing is, it's a bit out of the way, but not too much so. Enough that the only noise you will hear is from people in the same hotel, and as it is a family hotel you don't generally get much of that, but still close enough to be able to go out and enjoy the fun.

We are going on Monday , if you go out of the hotel and turn left , it's a meandering road to the main rd, watch the corner for cars turning, there is a bunch of shops on the rd down towards the left toward the main town on the left into the square is a super mercado and various shops and bars plenty of restaurants too, if you leave the hotel and go right, head along to the steps, steep but what a view, my wife and I got up these at least twice cos its a calorie burner!!!!

We are here now, it's very busy indeed, the restaurant is busy but it's open longer , the selection of food is limited IMO , and not much selection for breakfast , at dinner last night the queue was out the door , even with seats outside, however it's sunny and warm and will leave a trip report later ....

As our man on the spot ;) How expensive are things other than the hotel? What's the going rate for a pint of Estrella or San Miguel for example?
