“Second year staying here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We stayed again at club Santa Ponsa for the second year at easter for 11 days. Overall impression was that it was as good as last year except for the entertainment. Last year the kids club was excellent and our 5 year old loved it. The evening entertainment last year was poor. This year the hotel changed their entertainment company and there was more of an emphasis on adult entertainment. The kids club could last an hour today and tomorrow the children were finished after 20 minutes. This meant that we had to stay around the pool/bar area and couldn't plan anything for ourselves. Oscar and Laura were great with the children but we felt that the entertainment manager was more interested in adult entertainment and could be a little abrupt. Others will disagree i know but that was our experience. Food was excellent as usual. Staff very friendly and rooms very clean. People go on about the steps to the beach and someone said that there were over 400. I don't know where they were staying but we were staying beside the back entrance and we only counted 80 down to the lower road. Would we go back again? Probably not. Only because our 5 year old was a bit disappointed with kids club. One last thing, i don't think that children as young as 3 should be playing with real darts especially with people in the line of fire.

Room Tip: Ask when you get there. Don't bother emailing as they don't reply.

Great views all round the hotel. The staff take good care of you, the food is great and the rooms are big and clean.Dont worry about the steps when you go out to see Santa Ponsa you can take a steady stroll by the road which takes about 15 to 20 min walk, or catch the free bus the hotel provide. You can go down the steps to Ponsa Beach which takes about 5 min. Taxi charge 3 euros and to Magaluf 11 euros, airport 45 euros. First time to santa Ponsa and it wont be the last I was well impressed. Cant fault the hotel in any way and i wish i had taken my binoculars for the views. If you are worried about the steps, ask for a room on the same level as the bar area.

Just arrived home after 4 wonderful days at the CSP. We were allocated a 2 storey apartment with a sea view terrace and a down stairs patio, just like we had asked for before we left. The apartment was very clean and ideal for our holiday.
Food at meal times was plentiful with lots of choice, with tables in restaruant and also outside which is where we ate most of our meals enjoying great scenery. One word of caution, if you leave food on the plate and go for a drink beware of the little birds, they will help themselves.
Staff could not be friendlier, a smile and a please and thank you go a long way.
There are lots of steps but it makes it an interesting place to stay with lots of variations.
We hired a car and it made life easier, only 25 mins from airport with lots of places nearby to visit.
THANK YOU CSP will be returning next year.

Room Tip: Rooms nearer to reception have less steps but can be noisy, south side have sun all day and could be...

Totally disgusted with the hotel and all the hen and stags that they allow to over run the place. Most were drunk , loud, rude and totally inappropriate for a family sort of hotel. I saw a couple of guys exposing themselves by the pool and nobody did anything about it. The staff seem to pander to them either because they feel they have to or they are just don't care, I don't know. Apart from that the hill and steps involved to get to and from the hotel and to your room are a deal breaker especially if you have a small kid with you and heaven forbid a pushchair. I was worn out by the end of my holiday and fed up too as I felt I had wasted my money staying here.

Dear guest,

thanks for your review. We regret your stay in our hotel didn't satisfy your expectations.

In reference to the groups of people, we would like to tell the rest of holiday makers an important notice:

"This is a hotel for families and people who want to have a beautiful holiday in our resort.

Groups of people who are thinking of booking for a short-stay with the only intention to get drunk, make parties and disturb the rest of our guests, are not welcomed and in the wrong way, as we will consider not letting them stay from the first day.

There are other options around the world for this kind of behaviour, but for sure is not CLUB SANTA PONSA."

Just returned from 7 nights holiday with my husband and parents (ages 34 to 61)

Transfers: DONT DO IT...BOOK A CAB!!
As with other reviews, it seems to take up to 2 hours from coach to hotel despite bring quoted a 40 min transfer time. They omit to advise you will be waiting 1 hour on the coach followed by 1 hour travel.
We ended up catching a cab which is 35 euro daytime and 45 euro night time and takes 20 minutes.

For families going to this hotel, id strongly recommend looking further in to this before booking as they seem to cater for stag and hen parties, particularily during the weekends.
Loud, foul mouthed, boistress, drunk and nakedness was experienced during our stay with 3 different parties there (during the day by the pool in front of kids!!) - Dont think the animation teams drinking games helped matters any and we noted a lot of complaints from other guests regarding the parties.

Food:
Great choice and regular themed nights. Only struggled on last day of holiday but this was down to personal choice

Entertainment:
Fairly basic entertainment but at least there was some!
The 2 animation girls worked tirelesy with all of the children giving their parenrs a well deserved break

Area:
Theres a complimentary shuttle bus during the day to and from the beach which is grear uf you dont fancy the walk up hill.
Lots of tavernas and restaurants.
Please do try The Pepper Pot down the road from the hotel. 13.85 euro for a 3 course RESTAURANT STANDARD meal....fresh produce, ALL cooked from scratch...so good we visited there twice!

All in all, Santa Ponsa is a grear resort for young ones and the older ones alike.

Hotel would get 5 stars from us if they stopped allowing such behaviour from the stags and hens
