Lovely Hotel, Spacious clean rooms, Excellent Food. Great Value for money. The only way you can complain about this hotel is if you expect 5 star quality and service whilst only paying 3 star money. Excellent for families with younger children as during the holiday season there is laid on entertainment for the kiddies during the day and a 'mini-disco' early evening for them which was well liked by all. However, BE AWARE, that the hotel in on the top of and side of a hill, and if you have a room number of 'one hundred and something' - like we did, there are 87 yes eighty seven STEPS to climb up to get to the restaurant to eat. Rooms numbered 'two hundred and something' 78 steps and so on (rooms are on a total of 9 levels - basically, the higher up the hill, the higher the room number). DO NOT let this put off DISABLED travellers though as the holel is FULLY DISABLED FRIENDLY with wheelchair access to all areas - including the swimming pool. I suspect that you will have to let them know about any disabled requirements so they can put you in a suitable room. If you want to walk down to the beach there are about 300 steps to go down (and up on the way back) but the hotel does run a free courtesy minibus service on the hour every hour. Santa Ponsa is in a area with plenty of cycle routes and walking/hiking routes.

We went in October 2012, in the hope of getting some late summer sun - this we did and it was warm enough to swim in the pool and the sea. The hotel is set high on a hill overlooking the bay and has truly magnificent views. Accommodation is in studios and apartments arranged around the main swimming pool, the dining room, bar and terrace. It was surprisingly spacious in our studio and we had everything we could want, even though we were all inclusive. Although we checked before we booked on Belgian and English half term school holidays, we were unaware that German and Scottish children were on holiday! Whilst we like children, we do not want to be surrounded by undisciplined children that dominate everything. After evening dinner the only place to sit and enjoy a drink or use the internet is in the bar or the terrace outside the bar, listening at the same time to the noise of the children's entertainment.
Adult entertainment begins at 10pm, but most children stayed and ran amock!. This off course is not the fault of the hotel, but that of the parents. Unfortunately there was no wifi in the room and there were no British TV channels. The town is quite a walk away down some steep steps, or there is a bookable free mini bus in the daytime. It is not suitable for people who are not so able. That said, the beach is superb and the town has plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops. The best things about this place are the views, especially from the dining room and terrace. Food is nice with something for everyone. The downside is distance from town and beach and no separate entertainment area for children.
Staff were friendly and reception very efficient and polite. Chamber maid was a bit dour.
Good All-Inclusive bar selection, but with only one barman, service could be a wee bit slow at peak times. Having said that the barman worked very efficiently and remained pleasant at all times. Overall we had a lovely holiday, but the hotel is not in our opinion geared up for couples who wish to relax in the lovely Majorcan sun.

Room Tip: Email and ask for a sea view, But it seemed to us that couples were given the smaller apratments and...

The views from the hotel and from our balcony ate stunning. Nice time to go in October as not packed! Would describe as a relaxing holiday. I went with my fiancé but to be fair we seem I be the only younger couple here. If you are looking for a lively complex this is not for you! But would recommend to families and couples wanting a quiet break. Food is ok not amazing but great for the money we paid and its all inclusive so can't complain ! Go careful with the measures in your drink I drink gin and tonic and defiantly more gin than tonic! Lovely beach not far and the walk down is nice - the walk up is hard work as lots of steps so would suggest the free shuttle that the hotel provides for families with young children. Must say not impressed with the kid entertainment the female entertainer looks bored!! But apart from that everything else am really pleased with! Rooms are spacious and clean - will be back next year with my two young girls defiantly !!

Great place to spend the holliday, nice rooms, nice food, very freindly staff, perfect location, great diving with local diving compagny.
Holliday with wife and 2 children 11 and 13 yaers, who quicly found new friends at the pool area.
Only thing you have to consider is the number of stairs, if you want to go to the beach, but then again you can take the free shuttle from the hotel every hour, takes 5 min.

Very central room was ideal for the bar, pool, restaurant. I am not fussy but I think we picked one of the worst weeks to stay here, hotel full of people attending some convention. We were the only english speaking people there for first few days and were delighted to meet a lovely couple from York after day 3. Michael Jackson tribute poor, but Flamenco and Brazilians dancers were brill, so was the Country Western singers. My 9 year old daughter was the only child in the hotel for days. Nothing on for first 3 nights. They advertise darts, archery etc, but this did not happen during our 10 day stay. Daphne & Paddy (Entertainment) were great. My daughter had one-to-one care from them. Lovely food, lovely clean rooms. Bar staff very friendly too. Man at reception was brilliant, had to seek medical attention and he advised us what to do and where to go, thanks a million. Met very nice people from Glasgow later into holiday. Went to McTavishs at the bottom of the first set of steps to watch footy, would recommend it. Good holiday, probably wont return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 10 was disabled room, right next to the entertainment block. Noise didnt bother us at all.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment with 2 kids and my wife .The apartment had large balconys and where kept very clean and presentable . the food was excellent , with lots of variety to choose from . All staff where very freindly and lovely to our children. Don't listen to bad reviews , it's just people being picky. Lastly it is on a hill , but you wouldn't have the stunning views if it wasn't . Would definitely go back .
