Delfin Siesta Mar
Ranked #19 of 35 Hotels in Santa Ponsa
Reviewed 7 January 2012

This hotel is perfect for a couple that want to go out in the evenings but relax by the pool during the day. The food was nice and they had a large selection of meats, pastas, salads and of course chips served all the time! There was always room to sit and eat and although they did not offer packed lunches if you want to go out for the day, you can sneak food out easily enough. All in all was a lovely holiday! Only negative would be that the hotel was not very english and every day activities held were uncomprehensible.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the pool as night entertainment held there and have no chance in sleepig...

This hotel offers allinclusive, but when you arrive it actually isnt allinclusive as you are treated like a tramp on the street when you ask for a drink. The staff look down their noses at you and make you drink from plastic glasses, even though you are siting inside the hotel. You can only have coffee that has been made up since morning as expresso etc are not allinclusive. These are made fresh for everyone except the allinclusive guests who have to drink the rot that has been sitting in a jug since morning. The bar is unattended for most of the time so if you want a drink it is nearly impossible. The bedrooms are two single beds which is not good for couples. The spa facilities were broken when i was there, but if you wanted to use them it was E5.00 per person to sit in the sauna!!!!!!!!!!!!! The food is rubbish on a plate, although we paid for allinclusive we ate out as the food was dirt. Avoid this place like the plague unless you have no standards. THIS IS A KIP, A DUMP, A HELLHOLE ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH. One last piece of advice just dont do it.

Room Tip: dont stay there

We booked an all inclusive 10 night stay. The hotel did not cater for English guests. The whole animation team were Italien and made no attempt to speak English. Each night we didnt not understand a word that was being said and we were totally miserable. We had to go out every night and were not able to take full advantage of the all inclusive programme. This is not a good hotel if you have children that dont understand english. Appart from the dark depressing rooms and dark hall ways in dire need of a makeover steer clear

It´s a good average hotel, definitely not 4* hotel.

Hotel - nice and clean, standard equipment in the lobby - no fresh flowers, paintings or else. Neither style nor idea.
Double rooms are large enough only for 1 person, triple rooms are not better.
Furniture and equipment was clean and in a good condition, but don´t expect any decoration like paintings etc.
TV was very small, remote control for deposit (unusual for 4*).
Rooms with "pool view" - don´t expect any privacy :-)
Bathroom - sanitary without maintenance, should be changed.

Pool - very nice a very clean with small pool bar (but adequate)
Animation - only in Italian language.

Dining hall - very nice and clean. But damaged equipment like tables (should be changed) as well as unpolished or dirty glasses are not acceptable, even for 2* hotels.
Food:
Breakfast - always the same but great selection, however very bad coffee and scrambled eggs.
Lunch and diner: very good, fish incl. (maybe not salty enough for me).
Drinks - Spanish alcohol or Cola etc for all incl, except espresso coffee.

Santa Ponsa, however, is a quite place, so don´t expect any nightlife like disco.
If you want stay in Santa Ponsa, there are better hotels. Especially for solo travelers.
Depends on price, of course.

Definitely not a 4* hotel!!! The building is in poor condition, extremly small rooms, quite dirty, poorly equiped - furniture old and in bad shape. Terrible bed & linen, bathroom with no mechanical ventilation. Spanish national standards are far away from those international. Otherwise this hotel should be categorized on level between 1*-2* stars. The worst from our point of view - smoking is widely accepted at the pool & on balconies - we let the glass balcony door open during night and we've been waking up with smoked lungs, all day smoking is absolut natural all around - staff at reception is arogant upon our complains on public smoking. Italian animators make daily a real mess with repro music and loud entertainment at pool is on daily program till midnight. If you come to relax forget it! Public beach has blue flag - despite this fact it is dirty and full of trashes & bilions of cigarets all around in sand. Only good point - hotel cuisine.

we have just returned from a 7 night stay at this hotel,we being 5 adults and one child.first impressions are good, nice clean hotel.we arrived at 10am and were dealt with quickly and efficiently by reception and given adjoining rooms as requested.rooms were of an average size,quite large bathrooms,i saw no sign of any broken tiles or painted baths as other guests have mentioned in any of the three rooms we had taken,but the bath in the one room at the back of the hotel overlooking the pool was very small.(as a tip,request a room on 3rd or 4th floor at the front of the hotel as the view of the bay is amazing), we stayed on an all inclusive basis,and found the food to be more than edible.beautiful bread,croissants,eggs,bacon,beans etc,fresh juice,toast,fresh fruit.breakfast is served 8/10am.
lunch is served 12.30/1.30,and this is the main drawback,the food is excellent again,but it reminded me of being in school,as 200 people descend into the restaurant for their lunch.if the hotel management read this,the lunch needs to beextended at least another 30 mins!
dinner is served 7/8.30pm,there are no snacks available between lunch and dinner,apart from some cakes around4/5pm.dinner again is good,sea bass,salmon steaks,always meats available.there is wine on draught,soft drinks on draught and bottled beer available on A.I.basis.
the pool bar opened at 10am and closed at 5pm,serving drinks and ices for the children,the pool was very deep,3m to be exact,not very child friendly,but excellent for diving!the indoor pool was fine for a refreshing dip,as it was not heated,but this was o.k if you entered the jacuzzi straight afterwards.as other guests have mentioned the germans do reserve the beds,but do as i done,and remove their towels,we are all on holiday!
the beach is less than 5 mins walk down a slight hill and is gorgeous,banana boat rides etc,etc.
this hotel is predominantly german,with no entertainment for the british,but anyone who uses tripadvisor would already have known this before they arrived at the hotel,as i did.
I would stay at this hotel again,as i thought it was spotlessly clean,with a good quality of food and drink.
p.s.please remember you have to make a holiday and not just look for the negatives and complain!!

Firstly, we were the only 2 Brits in the hotel. So you can find the hundred plus Germans a little on the rude side. You do however need to get to the pool before 8am if you want a sunbed as they are in short supply and get taken by the Germans before breakfast. But the beach is a 2min walk. The hill isnt so bad!
If you want a quiet hotel within walking distance of the bars and resturants then this is the one to go for. Its clean and tidy and we found it relaxing, even if you did have to battle the odd german to get a sunbed!!
We opted for the B&B option. Food ok, but very similar to a school canteen. So i recommend Crocodillo's for a very pleasant evening meal.

Stayed: June 2008
