“Ghastly, Noisey,,,,, Never Again”
Reviewed 29 October 2011

Stayed at this hotel in September - Never again. Place was full of stag and hen parties, who all came to life between the hours of midnight and 6am - absolutely no sleep, from the rabble coming in and out, screaming, shouting and falling in the pool. The apartments was in the 'Irish area' with noise coming from several bars which was in-escapable. I was happy to stay up till 1am, but noise never stopped until 5am. In the mornings, the rabble were long gone but the pavements was decorated with vomit.

The poolside was unwelcoming, the entertainment was supplied by a big gobbed wally, the sunbeds were not adjustable and I can only imagine the guests rating this hotel 'good / excellent' were the ones causing the rest of us to have no sleep. Do not recommend for families at all.

Santa Ponsa was a superb place to visit, and I would return, but would NOT stay at Holiday Apartments. I like some night time peace and a bit of class and this place had none of that.

I would not return - even if it was for free.

Room Tip: Rooms okay - but no sleep quality

We stayed here for a week in September. The meet and greet was handled quickly and the girl on reception put us on a first floor as we have a toddler.
Our apartment had simple decor, plenty of space for pushchair etc.
The main shops and places to eat are close by its a short walk down to the nearest beach and we could easily manage it with our toddler in tow. The resort is a really lovely one, big sandy beach with a pleasant walk along for half a mile or so.
We found the food on offer at the hotel a good deal as they serve huge portions and it always arrived hot, also so easy as the bar has plenty of tables inside or out.
Entertainment is there every day if you want it, we came for the quiet life but have to say the evening act was quite funny and made us stay for more than one drink or two.
We were more than satisfied with our choice of hotel, it was clean and the friendly staff made all the difference.

Room Tip: Ask for low floor rooms if you have little ones, they are only too happy to oblige.

After reading the review about the bar man breaking into a room during one guests stay i had to give my experience of this as we too were staying at the Holiday Park during this time and i felt it only fair to defend The Holiday Park owner and staff.

This was a one off which was dealt with on the spot and very efficiently. The owner and staff were distraught to hear this as they pride themselves on the fantastic reputation the hotel has and have never experienced anything like this ever before as stated its a very safe and family welcoming hotel. I certainly would not be put off with this as its one of the safest hotels i have ever stayed in and i have been going to Santa Ponsa for 8 years and stayed in all different hotels with this being our first to The Holiday Park and certainly not our last as a family and the same people have been returning here year after year which says it all.

The hotel is spotlessly clean, the entertainment team of Duane and Frankie and 2 of the most funny guys i have ever met and got to know everyone who holidays here and made our holiday so special. (even put up with Duane's singing) just kidding Duane.

We met some lovely people from Newry and Kildare who were so friendly and had some good time on a night with them. In general the complex is friendly and one big happy family!!

Please do not be put off with one review out of hundreds of excellent reviews, you will not be disappointed.

The team of staff are second to none.

We have just returned from our second visit this year. Our first stay was in August which was in the height of the season, the atmosphere was great and we had a very warm and friendly welcome. The entertainment was second to none (Frankie & Duane), the staff were constantly cleaning the pool/bar area. Our apartment overlooked the pool and had everything we could ask for. The beer and food were reasonably priced (and I can definately recommend the breakfast). Excellent location for the shops, bars and restaurants of Santa Ponsa. If you appreciate nice food we can highly recommend a restaurant called Wellies in Puerto Portals (12 euros in a taxi) Our 2nd visit was in October and whilst it was quieter due to being at the end of the season we still enjoyed the same experience as in August!

I can honestly say there is no way this is the number one hotel in Santa Ponsa! Loved the resort and will definately return there but not to this hotel.
The rooms very very basic, as expected, but were not clean, in fact a really foul smell came from the little broom cupboard!
During our stay one family had their room broken into by a member of staff, during the night while they were asleep, the barman broke into their room through the balcony door, which can be easily pushed open, even when locked. Luckily the husband caught him before he got near the children, god only knows what he was capable of. Security obviously wasnt up to much that night!
Santa Ponsa great, Holiday Park apartments terrible!

Stayed at the Holiday Park for a week the last week in September with my husband and 1 year old - it's our 3rd visit to Santa Ponsa - first with our baby - we love it there and have
always gone the same week each time - it's nearing end of season so not too busy but not too quiet.

We requested a first floor room as we have a buggy and it was over looking the pool - lovely.

The rooms are basic but clean and the kitchen has everything you need should you wish to cook whilst you are away (!).

Location of the apartments is great - near to everything you want - only a few minutes walk from everything.

The owners are lovely - really make the effort to make sure you are having a nice time and everything is ok.

We will most definetly be returning to the Holiday Park - it's got such a lovely atmosphere and perfect for families.
