“Best holiday ever !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Myself, my partner and 2 children (aged 7 years) stayed at this hotel from 19th April 14 for 1 week. We arrived at the hotel at 9.30am, checked in and could go straight to our room. I was pleasantly surprised by the room, plenty of room and everything we needed, kettle, fridge, microwave, plates, cutlery, 2 stove hob. It wasnt spotlessly clean and was slightly tired, but after a quick sweep around was very satisfactory for the price we paid and the amount of time we actually spent in there. Fresh towels were provided every other day. The view from the rooms balcony (4th floor) was beautiful, overlooking the pool and Santa Ponsa bay and sea.
The variety and quality of the food was good, usually 2 meat, 1 pasta and 1 fish dish, the salad bar was beautiful and we never went hungry. I especially liked the waiter service in the restaurant, where the very efficient staff would meet and greet, take drink orders and remove finished plates. Natalie (blonde haired lady with tattoos) was especially nice and made a huge fuss over the children every time she saw them.
I found the staff to be friendly, helpful and very on the ball. We built a good relationship with some of the staff and had a really good laugh with them.
The pool was spotlessly clean (cleaned every morning), we always managed to get sunbeds for the day, which was great as the weather was fabulous, well over 70 degrees every day.
The night time entertainment was OK, mainly bingo and random adult games (it is what you make it!) Felix the entertainer was one of the funniest people I have ever met, he would have us in stitches every night "poop, poop chicken soup!!" ....legend!!
The hotel was full of mainly English and Irish guests, mostly families with children and we met some really lovely people.
I have seen reviews on here complaining of noisy roads ?? I am a very light sleeper and not once was I waken by "the noisy roads" mainly because they weren't !!
Santa Ponsa itself was stunning, the hotel was very well situated, a 5 minute walk from the beach, which was beautiful, many bars and eateries down the same street as the hotel. Although the prices of meals in Santa Ponsa itself were a lot more expensive than we imagined they would be, I would definitely recommend all inclusive board basis.
All in all we were all very sad to leave, we had an amazing week, the weather was better than we ever dreamt, the room was very comfortable, the food was decent, the hotel had all facilities we needed, the staff were really lovely and friendly. We will definitely be returning to this hotel with much excitement.
I don't think that the holiday center deserve half of the negative comments I have seen on here, possibly from people expecting a 5 star hotel or from people who you just cant please !!

Thank you Holiday Center Apartments for a holiday to remember !!

We stayed here for 10days over Easter hols we had a great time nice complex small enough to be able to keep an eye on the kids,nice playpark,pool and games area. Appartments spacious and with everything you would need if S/C . Food ok always found something we liked .As said before Bar area nice and could have whatever you wanted and not one at a time which meant could get drinks for all family members.Felix the entertainer great bloke could just do with little more for kids instead of Bingo every night but was fine as daughter 8 met lots of lovely new freinds to play with. Special mention to Natalie in dining room lovely lady helpful and always there with a smile as were all the staff .Had to go to reception a couple of times over the holiday and they were always helpful.Overall we had a lovely time and would go back just remember as said before you get what you pay for 2* all inclusive with a 4* service .

We have just got back from a weeks stay at the holiday center. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 8 and 4. We went with an open mind as some reviews were not great but we can honestly say this holiday exceeded our expections massivley. The room was perfect, yes a little dated but had everything you need and very clean and plenty of room. We all ate really well. the choice of food is not massive but we all ate plenty and it was very tasty. you can have as many drinks as you like with meals all you have to do is ask.

The bar area is great with a games room attatched where our children spent most of there holiday. it was easy to keep an eye on them. you could order as many drinks as you like at the bar hot,cold,alcholic and soft drinks. you can also help yourself to ice cream all day long.

There is a play area for the children which once again our children spend alot of time in. The pools were lovely and not as cold as i expected for april.

The staff are all very friendly, if there is anything you need all you have to do is ask.

Santa Ponsa is a lovely town with a gorgeous beach and plenty to see and do.

All in all a fab holiday for us. i cant believe what we got for what we paid! Really cant see how people can complain about anything for that price. This is a 3* hotel and that is what you get. If you want better you have to pay more.

We have just returned from a seven day holiday over the easter period and can safely say we had a great time. I was in a family party of eight, which included a 9 year old and two older end teenagers who all said they would like to go again.

The food was good plenty of it, good variety,

The staff at the holiday center are all friendly, polite and helpful and always on the go, we would like to thank the Bar Staff, couldn’t fault their service or smiles.

The entertainment with Felix “Woop Woop Chicken Soup” was fine with bingo and a quiz most nights and there is a board with activities you could take part in ie volley ball, boulles, archery etc during the day.

The pool and surrounding areas were constantly kept clean and clear of rubbish.

The rooms are spacious but could do with updating in places, that said the beds are very comfy and the balcony area is very relaxing. We were on the top floor which has great views, and we didn’t mind the stairs (51 each way). It was definitely an added bonus having a fridge, kettle and toaster as we are not early risers, why should we be, we were on holiday.

You got fresh towels, bins emptied and a mop around every other day which to me is suffice. If you wanted it doing every day there was a mop, bucket and brush in the cupboard for you to use!.

Santa Ponsa is a nice area. There are the usual tourist shops and supermarkets with a McDonalds and Burger King across from the sandy beach.

We would definitely go back again and recommend to anyone looking for a budget all inclusive family holiday.

My comment to the other reviewers is If you want 5 * treatment, go and pay for it.

Room Tip: if you dont like stairs book a ground floor

We had a fantastic week at this hotel! The apartment was basic but we had everything we needed, the shower was warm and the beds were comfortable. We were two floors up but expected this after reading the reviews, the only down side was that the lounge area was quite noisy at night where the children were sleeping.
The pool area and park were lovely and the children had great fun! It was busy most of the time but we arrived on the 17th April (easter holidays) so expected it to be busy.
With regard to the all inclusive offer it was excellent value for the price we paid! All the staff were very good, friendly and worked extremely hard! The food was varied and some days the choice was better than others! There was always something we enjoyed and as we hadn't paid an extortionate price we went out for meals on occasions too. I'm sure we got our money's worth in soft drinks, cocktails, San Miguel, ice-creams and three meals a day!!
We spent the week sunbathing, down at the beach and days out on the buses - if you want a cheap holiday in the sun would definitely recommend - you get what you pay for!

Just stayed 11 nights here and honestly carnt knock it ,
End of day you get what you pay for , we paid 1100 pounds for family of 4 , so you carnt expect 5 star
Rooms we're bit dated but clean,food ok always something too find ,but always warm and fresh,breakfast was about best

Person who wrote about 1 drink at dinner is total tosh ,we and people around us all used too have 2 or 3 with our meals and service too get another was always fast
Staff all very friendly couldn't knock any of them

Cleaners didn't seem too go in rooms much but always left clean towels and bedding every few days , one day we asked for clean towels and they was there when we got back

Building work ? Someone wrote ,were I would like too no cos I didn't see it in 11 nights

Entertainment was average but bloke Felix who does it is a gem of a bloke and really funny guy

Bar area is smallish but always got served quick enough and can double, we had our money's worth in drinks alone

Not a lot of sunbeds for hotel but we always manged too get a couple

Any one going with a couple of football mad boys Theres great astro turf just round corner and it's free
If you do get bored of the food you won't go far wrong at nearest bar too hotel called rebels nice food in there

Some people just expect champagne hotels when paying lemonade prices

Visited the Holiday Center on two occasions during April. The first time was at the beginning of April travelling with a group of friends, we had booked 7 apartments. On arrival the female receptionist told us they had overbooked and were sending four of our party to the SUN BEACH. We said ' I dont think so' ! If we wanted to go there we would have booked it. We knew it was cheaper and of a lower standard than the Holiday Center, plus it had noise issues as it was above bars and restaurants. We had to be very insistent that as we had booked the Holiday Centre it was where we were all staying. She asked us to wait 30 mins whilst she tried to sort it out. Eventually we were allocated our apartments.
We were due to arrive again in just over a week, this time travelling with family and 22 month old grandchild. It was going to be late at night when we arrived and to ensure we didnt have the same palaver again and to give them the opportunity to redeem themselves we asked the female receptionist to note our booking. She made a note in her diary of our names and that we required apartments on the first floor plus a cot was needed.
On arrival at midnight low and behold we were told they had overbooked and were sending us to the SUN BEACH and offered us sea views and breakfasts. We went into OVERDRIVE !!!!. Told receptionist his colleague had made a note of our booking in her diary so this wouldnt happen. No way were we moving. Whilst all this aggro was going on an other couple arrived with suitcases. I asked them if they were checking in. Told us they had arrived an hour ago and had been moved to the SUN BEACH - said it was a dump and wasnt prepared to stay there so had returned to Holiday Center to complain. By now 2 apartments had been found for us although they were on the fourth floor. We asked if there was a cot in the room and were told no. We showed our booking form which clearly stated - Please ensure there is a cot in the room. We were getting quite angry by now. Receptionist told us would get a cot to the room in approx 30 mins. It was a struggle climbing the stairs to fourth floor with baby, buggy and luggage. NEVER AGAIN !!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Dont accept being moved to the SUN BEACH
