“Get your towels out early!!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2008

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

Returned yesterday from an all inclusve stay. This Hotel is filled with German Holidaymakers so all the notices are in German. The staff are miserable. I can't think of any member of staff who smiled ,from the reception staff to the cleaners. I can't blame them I would be in the doldrums if I had to work there day in day out.

Let me list the downfalls...

1. On a steep hill to the main road.
2. Pool up flight of steps.
3. Childrens play are up a further flight of steps
4. Food of a very very poor quality
5. No entertainment for Adults at all. Not even background music.
6. Rooms dated. Needs refurbishment especially the bathrooms (bath very small and has been painted, tiling old and cracked)
7. Card Key to room kept losing room information so had to get it reset every other day. Really annoying when you return after walk in sun and need a shower asap and you then have to make your way back to reception. This happened to another guest also.

Now let me list the good points...

1. 5 minutes from the beach (down the very steep hill)
2. Plenty of resturants close by.

The bar in the main lounge on the ground floor closes when the bar near the pool opens so no chance of getting even a coffee during the day unless you walk to the pool area. Staff seem to flit between this Hotel and the Sister Hotel across the road (which is equally boring but more modern)

All meals served in main restuarnat which is in the basement. Eating outdoors is not an option, in fact it is discouraged. No food is served at the outdoor pool and there are signs which say no food allowed to be brought to the pool area.

Children are not supervised at all at the pool. We saw a couple of children, who had drifted into the deeper end of the pool by accident, only to be rescued by sunbathers. The pool drops from1.5 metres to 2.0 metres very quickly. We are mature ladies and we were shocked at the very steep step in the pool and you could see the adults new to the pool slip on the floor as they encountered the drop.

To finish...I have no axe to grind. I do not need to promote any other Hotel in the area. I just want to warn other Brits who are thinking of booking this Hotel that my idea of a Resort Hotel is to
relax, enjoy the facilities of a clean,welcoming Hotel by pleasant staff and get advice to places of interest to visit in the area. This is not a Hotel for British Holiday Makers due to the language barrier

Oh! I forgot to say. We are not young 20 or 30 somethings expecting a fun Hotel. We are mature ladies and we found the Hotel boring beyond belief. Plenty of other Hotels in the area. We have kept the names of several others which are far superior because we would like to return to Santa Ponsa as it is a lovely area of Majorca.

My friends sumed it up best by saying this Hotel has no atmosphere or soul.
