“The perfect holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

I always start my reviews by saying whatever my review says is the truth but not necessarily the same opinion of others! So.. Here goes!!
First impressions:-
Hotel had a very inviting reception area and we were greeted by 2 very friendly receptionists albeit was very late, they were expecting us. We were swiftly checked in and had our cases taken to our room after the hotels policies etc were provided to us. I always find its good to know anything at time of check in so there are no nasty surprises later!
We were allocated a ground level pool view apartment no 032 which was fantastic (we emailed the hotel direct to request this as we had small children) they replied stating they could not guarantee but would try and accomodate to which they did!
Apartment:-
Superclean and tidy, basically all you need and expect in self catering accomodation! (No microwave) but everything else provided. There are no TVs in the rooms but that did not bother us at all! We brought the childrens IPad and laptop to watch a film to fall asleep too! Sorted!

Pool area:-
Plenty of sunbeds which you cant reserve until 930am then there is a 20 minute policy 'use them or lose them' which is fair enough!! 3 pools in total 2 of which are childrens paddling pools!
The reception side of the pool has the sun in the afternoon and the opposite side in the morning!

Food:-
Poolside bar offering toasted sandwiches, pizzas, chips, childrens meals, fresh salads, side orders and breakfasts available too! All quite reasonably priced!
There is a supermarket opposite which has baguettes, cheese, snacks, coldmeats and basic groceries available too along with bottled water, beers, spirits, soft drinks etc! All far cheaper than the hotel reception (it is expensive in reception-which is actually my only complaint in this review!) If you arrive after 9pm and you need water or fancy a beer ur better off going to the pool bar (open until 1am)

Entertainment:-
Duane duane duane! Hes a marmite kind of person, you either take to him or you dont! Our own personal opinion is if your not up for a laugh and a joke and have
No sense of humour maybe go and find yourself an quiet and boring bar along the beach!
Duane has a very dry 'cut-throat' sense of humour but we found him highly amusing and to be frank the place probably wouldnt be the same without him!
He is always on hand to throw the kids (and adults) in the pool, provide some daytime entertainment e.g cash bingo, vollyball, shooting, dressing up in a cow onside in high heels
He is a great crack!
Evening entertainment varies but includes bbq night, singer, quiz nights, gameshow nights, karaoke, 80's, 90's themed nights too there was also a daytime parrot show which I forgot to mention too!
In summary the entertainment is typical of a spanish resort! And dont forget this is a 2 star place! Even though i think it deserves at least a 3 star award!

Local area:-
Typical bars, resturants plentiful, beach locally about 5 minutes walk local MC'ds and Burger King near the beach! Waterparks in close vicinity, Marineland, boat excursions etc

In summary we had a great time and will definatley return!
Dont believe any of the negative reviews you read in my opinion these are people who expect to pay 2 star prices and receive 5 star accomodation which unfortunately you dont and in Duanes words 'Thats TUFF'

Please feel free to ask me any questions direct!

A decent 2/3 star place. Quiet with everything you would need - don't think it should be "number 1" on here though. Just basic/dated rooms just what you would expect on a budget holiday abroad.

Close to the town/beach - approx 10 mins walk where we would tend to head most days. Pool and pool bar in the complex was good also. If you don't like steps make sure you let reception know when you arrive as I think it was at least 100 steps to our apartment which was at the back of the resort - so a little bit of a pain.

Worth what we paid for, if you don' spend much time in your room and like to wander around, beach, places to eat etc then its a good location to be based at - probably go back to Santa Ponsa but another location to see what that might offer.

Room Tip: Various levels of rooms, some have a number of steps so be careful to ask about this if it might cau...

We wanted to see for ourselves if what everyone said about this hotel was true and for us it was 5 stars all the way! Friendly, welcoming, stylish, clean and worth every penny. Our room was on the 2nd. floor overlooking the pool and we loved it. Lot's of room, especially in the lounge. We chose to pay a small extra for the air conditioning, as in the heat we saw it as a must and it cooled the whole apartment down beautifully. New towels were replenished every couple of days and it was very clean throughout. The pool and bar is a lovely area. Modern and colourful with comfortable sunbeds to relax on and a very easy going atmosphere. We thought breakfast was well worth it as it was cooked to order and done just how we like it. Staff didn't disappoint after reading the reviews singing their praises, and they are very approachable and even the man that carried our suitcases up to the room was smiling while he did it!
We liked the location as we could meander down to the beach and restaurants and liked that the hotel wasn't right on top of the late night bars and clubs, so found it quiet and easy to sleep at night with no disturbances to mention. We became regulars at the 24 hr. mini supermarket in reception, picking up chocolate or a bag of nuts for midnight munchies! Very handy. We had a lovely week at Holiday Park and it is somewhere we would definitely consider going back to.

Just back from a great stay. Ideally situated for easy access to all the resort. Excellent for families, nice friendly atmosphere around the bar area. Staff extremely courteous and friendly. Great views from balcony on 2nd floor spacious well equipped apartment. Only one downside lift only goes to 1st floor

Room Tip: Rear view rooms on left side 2nd floor have amazing views

After reading the reviews here we booked via their own website and initially was worried because more than one person had said that the location was not good but we actually thought the location was fab. Close to the beach and restaurants and all the best pubs. There are a few shabby bars and restaurants on the way to the beach from the hotel that attract the younger crowd but they mind their own business. We booked a pool view apartment and were on the 3rd floor and it was worth paying more for. The hotel is very quiet at night and we never heard any rowdy people and I guess thats because they have a guy that walks around the hotel making sure no one makes noise. Great hotel.

Got back recently and had a fab holiday here. The apartments are extremely clean and the cleaning guys came in frequently to put fresh towels and tidy around. We were on the second floor and had a nice balcony to sit on which we used quite a bit. As everyone says the staff are always very attentive and easy to chat to which was nice. Food at the bar was very good and the atmosphere was excellent.
