“DONT STAY HERE!!!!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We stayed at these apartments in May 2013. The rooms were very basic and only just adequate .The room we were given was clean, but had very limited cutlery, plates and bowls, no teatowels or washing up liquid were provided.The amount of steps at this hotel were a complete joke, if you have children or a mobility problem then this hotel is not for you. Our room was facing the street outside and we hardly slept due to the noise of late night revellers. The day time wasn't much better, as children were running around the pool screaming whilst their parents propped up the bar. Sunbeds were provided, but there weren't nearly enough for everyone and there were no parasols. The Outside of the hotel isnt much better, as you walk down the street beware of the pools of sick dotted around,mainly outside of the numerous bars that are on your doorstep. How anyone can stay here and say that is wonderful is completely beyond me, it is absolutely awful. Please save your money..DONT STAY HERE!!

We read a lot of reviews and after so many good comments booked a week here. I booked an apartment for me, my girlfriend and her six yr old. Loved the place, for us it was perfect. Great pool area safe for the kids and still close enough to nip back to the room or get cold drinks and lunch at the bar. A clean beach only a short distance and some great places to eat along the beach. The staff made it so easy to ask for anything and the young girl on reception was always so positive and even had a spare plug! I have just re-booked to stay later this year and we can't wait to go.

Our one bedroom apartment was comfortable, spotlessly clean and it had everything we needed. The most genuinely helpful staff we've yet encountered and they were always involving and introducing holiday makers to each other to the point that by the end of our holiday we´d made a lot of new friends. The pool area had a good atmosphere to sit around or sunbathe and if you prefer the beach that´s close to walk to. We were also happy to find supermarkets within a few minutes walk away to stock up the cupboard and fridge for the week.Excellent all round and we look forward to spending another holiday here in the not too distant future as you rarely come across an amazing hotel like this.

I am not a new member on TA and i did not open an account to slag off a hotel just because I didn´t get a free upgrade like some people do. When I see a review from someone that has just opened an account to write negative stuff I always take it with a pinch of salt, but that´s just me.

To the point; The hotel is a wonderful complex with large apartments and it´s all very clean. The bar serves good food and the staff are very pleasant and always chatty and actually at the end of their shift some of them even stick around the hotel to have a social drink with the guests.
The distance to the beach is 4 or maybe 5 minutes walk away. We were in room 338 on a 3rd floor which is the highest floor and that wasn´t a problem and we stayed for 14 nights. We would happily go back to the same apartment and the views were great, but I also agree that if you have walking difficulties I would not recommend the highest floor. The hotel is on the strict side with noise late at night and I loved to sit on my balcony after hours with a glass of wine relaxing.

We will be back at the hotel in July for 14 nights again and we are counting down the days to more family fun. Also, to put your mind at rest, have a look at Facebook of the hotel and you´ll see thousands of people that go to this hotel every year and love it, and I think that says a lot.

I travelled here in September with my partner and 6 month old baby. The apartments are clean and in a good location but I really would not rate them as the best in Santa Ponsa!
Yes staff are friendly (although we did not have many dealings with them) but I was expecting great things considering the rave reviews on tripadvisor.
Entertainment is none existent - unless you count a drunk English man pushing people into the pool!
We specifically requested a room with as little steps to it as possible as we had an infant with us (we did this months in advance) but this was not granted. Carrying an infant and a pushchair up and down steps numerous times a day is both dangerous and tiring - not exactly the makings of a relaxing holiday.
The food around the pool is both tasty and cheap if you fancy a quick snack. All in all this is very basic self catering accommodation but if you like having a room anywhere near the pool this is not the place for you. I just don’t understand the #1 Rating

Room Tip: try and get one of the very few rooms around the pool!

We went to these apartments in August 2013, how they can be rated at no1 is beyond me. They are very basic to say the least, small and the bathroom left alot to be desired. There is nowhere near enough sunbeds around the pool for the size of the complex. The staff were helpful I have to say apart from the arrogant entertainer who simply did just as he pleased. The area they are in is certainly full of youngsters being sick and getting drunk - although I must add we never saw any trouble.
Santa Ponsa once you reach the beach (about 7 mins walk) is lovely, the beach was amazing and there is some lovely restaurants and bars, we thoroughly the entertainment in the square.
We would recommend Santa Ponsa for a nice family holiday but would never return to these apartments.

We spent a fantastic 10 days here. We upgraded to a pool side room which was worth every penny as was brilliant with two young children.

Hotel were very friendly, pool side bar was of a high quality and everything was well looked after.

A perfect place for a lovely family holiday.
