Reviewed 22 April 2014

My birthday was while we were away and the hotel organised me a nice surprise of birthday card choc biscs and champagne in ice bucket left in our room. Had a good week very friendly staff, good food, comfy room and entertainment every evening.

Room Tip: all rooms have a sea view we were also looking over the pool which was nice.

got back sat 19/4/14 the guests at the hotel are mainly from the uk.It is a very popular with guests going back very frequently The reception was very good altho we had to wait an hour for our room Keith (receptionist) kept us informed about the situation which was good so we had a few bevvies in the bar.The bar staff Darrell and Susan were just great all the time we were there .They certainly work long hours.The hotel is spotless the rooms are cleaned every day and bedding changed we also had a fridge no charge with complimentary water bottles 2 also there was 2 cartoons of milk The safe was 28 euros for 11 days but you got 6 euros returnable We had a room that looked over the pool and onto the son matais beach very nice to. The food you cant fault English breakfast every day and roast dinners at night and loads more besides I think we were spoiled as the weather was terrific we had 1 day which was cloudy the rest of the time it was 70+ we did venture out a few nights to explore the locality and there a few nice bars and restaurants very close by The sun beds were available as it was early april might not be the same later in the season .The entertainments at night were not bad considering but the star of the show is JESSICA she kept everyone amused with her bubbly personality and shes the worlds best bingo caller!!!! (got them lights fixed Jessie) also she entertains guests during the day darts,crazy golf,you name it Jess does it .all in all it is a good hotel the food the position it is in and the staff are all very good .Also it is adults only

Room Tip: pool view 4 floors+

Just back from a week in the Son Matias (12-19 April) + can honestly say we did not want to come home! This was our second visit having stayed before but some 10 yrs ago. The hotel has been nicely refurbished + although the rooms are not large they are more than adequate and nicely decorated, have tea/coffee making facilities, complimentary fridge with milk and water- which was good for having a refreshing cuppie on arrival after hours of travelling. There is a modern slimline TV which has BBC 1 + 2, ITV + Ch4, Sky News, small table + chair, dressing table stool/mirror, twin beds with slightly firm memory foam mattresses + ample storage in wardrobes. The bathroom was adequate in size, water always hot enough, complimentary toiletries, and lovely thick soft towels which were changed daily. Balcony has table/chairs and drying rack for clothes. Only down side was poor soundproofing between rooms as you did hear conversations/TV etc - but it didn't really bother us too much.
We were on 6th floor - all rooms have sea views but we also had pool view. Corridors are carpeted so no noise from other guests coming/going. Booking in was quick + efficient and Reception staff are friendly + helpful. Being on 6th floor we used the lifts regularly without any problem. The hotel is immaculate throughout.
Food is served in a light and airy dining room with ample room between tables (your room card is required for entering) or you can sit outside. The Maitre and dining room staff are all pleasant, friendly and efficient. Drinks can either be paid for after each meal or billed. The choice, quality and standard of food was very good both at breakfast and dinner, with the meat (lamb, steak, roasts + ham) actually having a taste to it...unlike some hotels. Only one soup on offer but a good choice of main courses + fantastic choice of desserts - as one guest commented it was like being in a sweet shop + wondering what to choose! Definitely something for everyone! So top marks + compliments to the chef + his staff for producing such lovely meals - the best we have had for some time in a Spanish hotel!
Although there is supposed to be a no reserving of sunbeds rule this is totally ignored, with lots of folk actually Q'ing for when the doors are opened at 9am - rather annoying especially if you want one of the comfy round beds with mattress + cushions....and see them lying empty for hours with towels draped over them.....so if you can't beat them....!! Water in the pool was cold so we were never in but the jaccuzzi was lovely and warm. There was daytime entertainment for those who wished to participate....mainly older guests, but we were not impressed with the rep as she tended to focus on her 'regulars' ....forgetting about new arrivals.....and this continued into the evening entertainment. As always there is usually one guest who constantly requires to be in the limelight throughout the stay...during our week it was 'Ron' who liked to perform....leaving his poor wife on her own......+ the rep kept encouraging him....amusing to start with but tedious by the end of the week :( Evening entertainment we found amateurish but we did watch a couple of the vocalists - drinks are overpriced - especially Bacardi Breezer (orange flavour only) which cost 5.50 euro and the sangria at 10.70 euro had no taste of any alcohol (maybe this was because it was on special offer!), gin + tonic 4.30 euro, bottle of san Miguel 2.80 euro and 1/2 pint cider 2.90 euro. Many older guests sat with one drink or no drink throughout the evening entertainment. However there are plenty bars/cafes with cheaper prices outwith the hotel + Magaluf is only 5 min walk - would recommend Finnegans Irish Bar for a good night of irish/popular music + tribute acts. Reps were available daily at certain times for booking trips/info etc and they were also friendly + helpful.
The hotel is well situated, with bus stop just outside - we took the local bus to Paguera - cost 2.70 euro single fare - nice beach + better shops - delicious Italian ice-cream from Tutti Frutti - who also have a shop in Palmanova :)
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Son Matias, would recommend it to others and would like to return again - maybe next year!

Room Tip: We requested a quiet, sunny room if possible + were given room on 6th floor which had pool and sea v...

I don't normally write reviews but really thought I should as what a fantastic hotel it was!
We booked it very late so got an incredible deal (felt like we had robbed them!), when arriving we were all more than impressed at the hotel, as we were all in our early 20's we have stayed in magaluf down the road and what a difference a mile makes to the quality! Like many have said it is for the older generation but we didn't feel out of place at all, everyone was lovely and we even got involved in the games! If your well behaved young people who still want to party but return to a lovely clean/safe/quiet hotel after a night out, then it is perfect!!! Food was incredible, so much choice and always lovely, didn't have one bad meal! Only saw bits of the evening entertainment and was very good! It's only a few minutes walk to all the bars / clubs ect but wouldn't encourage groups of rowdy stag dos to stay here, it's far too nice!! Honestly can't find a fault, apart from the pool was a bit cold but probably down to the time of year!

Hi :) just arrived home after 5 nights in Palma Nova ..Son Matias Hotel...April 10 -15th ..Adults only ..yes was very British , but we knew that ahead of time ..so no Problems. Location , Excellent, Food , lots of variety and very tasty from Breakfast to Dinner, desserts, fruits, healthy, not so healthy haha and even ate lunch there one day . Staff was friendly, helpful and pleasant. Clean facility, entertainment nightly, Awesome view from terrace. Lots to do within walking distance and buses right in front to everywhere. Pool was nice, although we didn't use it . I wish they did an all inclusive pkg :) Would never leave Hotel ! Keith at front desk was Awesome ! Should be a Manager ..Very knowledgeable about surrounding areas , Polite, helpful and answered every question and then some !! Susan at the Bar was Friendly, helpful, and engaging always smiling and pleasant . Jessica whom we met was a recent addition , she is activities Director , she always had the Guests laughing, having fun and really seemed to care about her job and pleasing guests and having fun all at the same time ! Entertainment was fun, we always wished it had been longer and didn't want to leave when it was over. We are very much younger than the Guests who stayed , was never a problem ! Many reasons to go back , too many too list, Especially to visit Keith, Susan , Jessica :) I also found a gal in Hotel next to Son Matias who cuts hair ...was very good and reasonable ..2 minute walk. Until we meet again .....

Just got back from Mallorca 11th April 2014
The son Matias beach is a very nice hotel right on the beach in palma nova. The rooms although not the biggest are well equipped and all have a sea view. The hotel is spotlessly clean as is the pool area with lots of sunbeds and some very comfortable double round beds. There is a no towel policy but some welsh people (you know who you are) who came a couple of days after us ignored that and took up one of the round beds daily even though they spent very little time on it. The food is probably amongst the best that I have had in a holiday hotel excellent choice very well cooked with a very large selection. We went half board and enjoyed every meal.
The staff are helpfull and attentive and all have the time of day for you. The reps were on hand every day with lots of helpful information. The clientele is shall we say more mature but this in no way takes anything from the hotel. It is adults only with live entertainment every night although we didnt actually see any as we headed off into Magaluf every night (only two minute walk from the hotel). I would definitely come back to this hotel and would recommend it.

Excellent hotel, stunning position right on the beach, very, very clean, so, what's with the too British (my husbands comment), based on the fact that they had a roast dinner every night which was freshly cooked and very high quality meat, some meats were cooked in front of you freshly most nights. No, I agree they cater for the Brits. although there was always a good selection, you would be very hard to please if you could find nothing., but what would you prefer, food that you had no problems with or, unidentifiable dishes that you would probably avoid. your on holiday and a good meal at the end of the day and an excellent full english piping hot! decide for yourself!.
Agree that the line dancing with the same tape every night was wearing and I'm a country music fan, had ELVIRA on my brain for a week!.
Usually hire a car but with the public transport so readily available and efficient we didn't bother,
To sum up, if you want a hotel close to the airport, beautiful beach on your doorstep, easy access to all parts of the island without a car and mostly better food than I have had in some 5* hotels, plus not being put off by being so close to Magaluf which we didn't have an issue with
I'd would highly recommend this hotel, Oh! yes and the staff were lovely too.
