We stayed at the Rey Don Jaime for 1 week all inclusive in August 2013. We are a young couple who just wanted a cheap all inclusive holiday by the beach. On this the hotel really delivered.
I have found most of the reviews on here to be accurate. In brief this is our honest opinion -
Rooms and hotel -
Very clean, maid service every day, staff are brilliant, all speak good English and are always smiling, quick clearing of tables in dining room. Bedroom was fine, we had a road view but it was very quiet.
Overall it wasn't great. Breakfast was a big selection of English fry up, toast, cereals, pastries, fruit and continental. Lunch and dinner very hit and miss. Food sometimes cold. Puddings were mainly weird jelly creations.
Pool and entertainment -
Nice pool, the sun bed queue was ridiculous. Pool doors open at 8.30 and we were told some people queue from 7am!! Not enough beds for everyone. Entertainment good for the kids, very loud and constant.
Very nice beach literally 5 mins walk. Beautiful views. Lots of little shops, chemist, supermarket etc.
Be warned - there is a disgusting sewage smell from the hotel next door which wafts across from time to time. Horrible.
We would go back to Santa Ponsa but not this hotel. However, it's cheap and cheerful, good drinks selection for all inclusive and close to lovely beach.
