I've rated this a 4 for value for money rather than the star of this hotel which is probably a 2/3.
I was really impressed with this hotel for the price. We all had visions of the Inbetweeners Movie with the ants nest considering the price but we were all surprised and very relieved! Every one of us (8) said we would go back for a short break.
It was very clean, I was with a friend of mine who has OCD cleaning and she was happy with the cleanliness, which is usually a good test. The Pool area was nice and again it was clean. The food was a little disappointing especially when we could get much nicer food for less in Santa Ponsa but if you can’t be bothered to go out it was ok.
We were in a group of 8 and they upgraded 2 studios to 2 one bedroom apartments instead so we could be in the same block. I was in the studio on the 6th floor which had lovely views over the sea and being on the top the balcony had direct sunshine, if I booked this again I would ask for the top floor. The rooms were basic but pretty big and had a sofa, table and chairs to sit and eat, a kitchen and furniture on the balcony. My other half would be disappointed at the lack of TV but that really wasn’t an issue for me or my friends. The check-out was 12 which meant we could have a lie-in on the last day and they had a free courtesy room with a couple of showers which was ideal to leave your luggage and freshen up before going home, this was great as we didn’t fly until 9.30pm so we had a whole day sunbathing before coming back and getting ready to leave.
We were away for a weekend at the end of September and it was great for a short break, I probably wouldn’t book this for a whole week personally as I like a little more luxury but it was ideal for a weekend.
The only real down side is the steps but you can walk around the road way which wasn't that much further and a nice walk, we also found a really nice restaurant on our walk called Manalos which did really nice Spanish Food.
Yes the Steps are hard work and all of us had sore calves after the weekend but it wasn't the end of the world and if we didn't want to walk them we went the road way. It wouldn't put me off booking this again.
We went to Magaluf on the first night and it was 10 Euros in a taxi, if you are like us and want to have a big night out but don’t want to stay in the middle of Magaluf it was really easy to get to and the hotel reception rang a taxi for us. We went out in Santa Ponsa on the second night and we ate at Manalos previously mentioned and we went into Santa Ponsa, there is a mixture of bars and restaurants from bars to sit and chill with a drink to more lively bars with dancing. It’s not Magaluf and nowhere near as full on but there is some nightlife.
I'm not really sure what people expected who have given this a bad review considering the price of this hotel as overall I would say great value for money for a weekend or short stay. If you want a 4/5 star hotel then pay more!
