Stayed at the Son Matias Beach Hotel for a week on the 4th March 2014 which was the first day of the season at this hotel. The hotel had mostly older guests this week but later in the week younger people arrived. It would seem that the hotel attracts older guests throughout the season and they seem to cater for them while we were there. I think that this is because they have many guests returning year after year and also that it is cheaper at the start of the season. I can understand this, as the hotel is one of the best if not the best I have stayed in while holidaying abroad. The staff were very polite and attentive to the guests. All rooms have sea views and are well furnished and of a good size. A nice touch is that they put a litre of milk and two bottles of water in the fridge for you when you arrive.There is plenty of variety of food and it is always hot, not just warm as most of the other hotels abroad. The entertainment at night was of a very good standard while we were there. In the afternoon there is line dancing or tea dances with free tea and biscuits. You do not have to take part, you can just go down and have tea and biscuits and take them outside round the pool area without anyone getting you to join in.
The dining room is nicely set out with views of the beach and sea while having your meals or sit outside on the terrace in the warmer weather. Breakfasts are especially good with a huge choice of cereals, fruit, croissants’ and cold meats and cheeses. You can also have a full English breakfast with black pudding and English sausages as well as all the usual bacon, tomatoes etc. The evening meals were also very nice with plenty of choice and lovely salads.
I would have no problems recommending this hotel to anyone who is looking for a good quality hotel and great location when in Palma Nova.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 6th floor or above and if possible pool view

We wre a young early 50's couple and most has already been stated, however we felt the need to just say how much we enjoyed our week at this hotel. Ok the hotel was mostly used by the older generation but having read reviews prior to booking we expected this and as such added to a real stress free time so I've just listed some points we found

Good points:
Had a lovely quiet room on 8th floor overlooking both sea and pool
Fridge, wifi and pool towels all free of charge
Excellent food especially breakfast
Shops, restaurants, pubs immediately outside hotel
Jacuzzi was warm
Plenty of sockets in room - we found 4 and as we had lots of gadgets was great
Bus stop immediately outside hotel

Not so good points:
Pool was icy cold (stayed for a week at Easter)
No waiter service in bar during evening entertainment (which surprised us due to the nature of the clientele)

Room Tip: Stayed in room 809 which was fab

Have just returned from a great week at the Son Matias Beach hotel in Palmanova. A really friendly hotel with first class food, and superb position on the beach. First hotel we've been to that really cater for the British tourist. I would certainly recommend a stay here.

We arrived on the 1st April and stayed 11 nights, this was our 1st Hotel holiday for some years we usually cruise, We had a truly amazing holiday, the hotel was immaculate and our room, had a wonderful veiw straight over the bay, there was always plenty of choice at mealtimes to suit all tastes, and great entertainment everynight with the exception of one, as it was early season the clientele were mostly retired couples so line dancing and tea dances most afternoons, but we were out and about so no problem there not too busy so always plenty of sunbeds, thanks to all staff we will be back.

We stayed the first 2 weeks in April 2014. For me it was a holiday to recuperate and we couldn't have chosen a better place.

Most of the good things I want to say have all been said by previous reviewers and I can only agree with them all. Superb in every way - location, hotel, room, service, food, staff, ambience, attitude

Both my husband and I celebrated our birthdays whilst we were there and both of us received a bottle of bubbly, some delicious biscuits and a card from the hotel. It was a delightful surprise and very thoughtful.

Anything I could find to criticise would be just nit picking so I'm not even going to go there.

Room Tip: We had a pool view room and received direct sun from dawn until about 3pm. We sat on our balcony mo...

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+
