What wonderful surprise to discover this hidden gem after decades of visiting the island. Early in May we wanted to hedge our bets with pool and beach if the sun shone and close to the city if it didn't.

The sun did shine and we had 2 fantastic days in and around the large clean but chilly pool. The hotel grounds are large with impeccable gardens with the best rooms ( i think they are the refurbished ones)having fantastic sea views. We had a wonderful terrace where we had breakfast overlooking the sea

the room was large with a bed room and separate kitchen lounge area with proper sofa beds. Cleaning was excellent, the bathroom modern and the shower powerful.

Our 7 year old was swiftly recruited by the entertainer who together with the only other child in the hotel put on games, face painting and 2 mini discos. The first one went on so long, we gave up on eating out and dined in the hotel buffet and for hotel food it was very good. even better in the summer when it looks like they have tabels outside

We ate out at a an excellent Spanish restaurant, an oasis in a sea of dreadful Palma Nova restaurants. Meson something opposite Mercadona

Very highly recommended . Will definitely return

A group of 9 of us stayed here for my Hen Do - we wanted a nice hotel away from Magaluf but close enough if we wanted to go for a while - this hotel is a great place to go for families or couples or a group who want a nice place to stay!!!
Breakfast is fantastic in this hotel, I did not eat at the evening meal but the Stags who went the week after did and said it was fantastic and well worth the 15 Euros.
Staff are great, drinks are huge (spirits are at least a triple) rooms are well kept very clean and beds are comfy - the view from roon 213 is also a treat!!!!
15 Mins from the airport in a cab and 36 Euros
Beaches are also great you can take a nice walk along the beach and come across some nice bars and restaurants.
Def recommend this hotel and I am booking to go back with soon to be husband for a break after the wedding.

Room Tip: 213 has got a fab view

Palmanova is just 10 minutes from Palma and 15 minutes from the airport, in the quiet end of the Magalluf area. Make sure you get a room facing the sea - also the rooms on the back side can see the sea from the balcony, but have noise from air cons and garbage trucks.
Excellent for cycling holidays with www.stephenroche.com resident, organising guided trips every day. The mountain road starts just 1 km from the hotel, leading into the Sierra de Tramuntana area with beautiful scenery and plenty of challenges for all rider levels.
Great bar sandwiches and milk shakes, good room service tortillas, as well as football and free wifi in the lobby lounge.
Great pool area with table tennis and billiards, but the water was too cold during Easter. The nearby beach was great and the water superb. Great on-beach bar with splendid tapas and free wifi - but other than that the beach is lined with filthy British pubs...

This has been our second stay at Ponent Mar which is nicely situated in Palma Nova with beautiful views from the pool/terrace and just a short walk to the beach/bars/restaurants/supermarkets. The hotel facilities very good, rooms are spacious with facilities for self catering albeit limited but sufficient for making lunch/light snacks. Food is good, the usual buffet style, evening entertainment just ok, daytime activities also ok. All-in-all would highly recomment this quiet, very nicely kept 4star hotel convenient to the airport.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms would be the best but at a supplement - we had a side partial sea view which was fine...

I stayed in a room with a seaview and, apart from the occasional part boat drifting over from Magaluf in the late afternoons, I found the setting and tranquility pretty much ideal. There are steps at the back of the hotel that lead down to rock pools and the sea, which is good for snorkling and swimming. The pool area is a good size and there are plenty of sunbeds throughout the day. Apart from some rather irritating music played around midday for pool gymnastics, I found I could read my book near the pool without any disturbances - the other guests seemed very considerate. Wifi costs 10 euros a day if you want to accss it in your own room, otherwise it's free in the reception area.

Room Tip: Apartments with balconies offering sea views are a must.

my wife and i stayed here with two other couples for a long weekend.check in was quick with no hassles but the room we were allocated was far from the superior room with sea view we had booked,so it was back down to the reception i went & after ten minutes of debating what a sea view ment we were given another room with a splended sea view...hurrah now the relaxing break could begin.
the swimming pool & the views over the bay were simply stunning.the bar staff were very helpfull, friendly & eager to please.
i would stay at the ponet mar again.

Room Tip: request/book room with sea view
