My friend and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of August and had a lovely time. Our room was on the ground floor but it was fine, nice big room with basic cooking facilities and a bottle of water ready for us in the fridge when we arrived. Clean towels everyday, and our bed was made each day with the sheets changed once during our stay. There is a little supermarket in the hotel, and a large one about 5 minute walk around the corner.

The main 'strip' of bars and restaurants is only a 5 minute walk, lots of lovely restaurants to try out. We had a lovely Thai meal at 'My Thai' and visited a tapas restaurant twice just along from there. We also had some gorgeous cocktails in Capuccino every night, quite expensive there but worth it! I would not recomment going to Ciro however, we had a bad meal in there, expensive, had to wait for ages, poor service and the food was not very good.

A taxi into Magaluf was only 5 euros and we got this from the taxi rank just outside the Thai restaurant. We found a taxi back from there no problem either.

We tended to go to the beach in the morning and then the pool in the afternoon. The pool was always quite busy but we managed to find sunbeds each time quite easily. The pool is open until late on in the evening as well, so anyone wanting to enjoy the evening sun can do so without any issues.

We had a lovely time here and would definitely recommend it!

Stayed here in July with one other friend for 4 nights. Our room was on the ground floor. It was a basic room and bearable. Not luxury but was clean. The maid made the beds and changed towels etc every day which was good. The only problems with the room was that by the 2nd/3rd night there was no more drinking glasses and nothing to wash any up with and also the fridge was hardly cold.

Problems:

On the 2nd morning we thought we would go for the breakfast, as we were pretty sure when we booked that we had 'bed and breakfast'. We walked into the restaurant and no one greeted us, staff just looked at us. We looked at the food and nothing appealed. But we took a slice of bread each and some juice and sat down. A male waitress came over and asked which room we were staying in. We told him and he said we had not got breakfast. We then left the restaurant not having touched the food/drink. On departure of our stay we were told we had to pay £9 each for the food we didn't touch!!! They created a fuss after we calmly questioned it and we were VERY rudely shouted at and threatened to have police called on us!!! We eventually paid and left the hotel very upset. The service there is extremely poor. We should have been greeted when entering the restaurant not after sitting down.

Also, the pool cleaners were very strange. One Spanish male would stare at us every day by the pool and talk about us in Spanish. We asked him to stop but he continued. We felt very uncomfortable and almost scared by this.

THIS HOTEL IS NOT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE! I would NEVER stay again! Staff are very rude!!!

Great hotel for families, groups and couples! Great location literally right next to the beach with loads of restaurants along the front. Magaluff is a cheap taxi ride away so if your after a party holiday but with a peaceful night's sleep this is a handy place as its quiet at night. I didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food but everyone there seemed happy enough. Loads of stuff going on for kids and a great swimming spot right of the rocks just near the hotel.

10 of us went for a Hen weekend on July 25th just for 2 nights (3 days) as we had a late flight home and arrived after an early flight.
We all had ungraded rooms which were really nice and also very clean with great sea views.
The staff couldn't do enough for us and we had a beautiful meal on the Terrace overlooking the sea on our last evening before our late flight home.
I would defiantly return to this apart hotel ,

Room Tip: Hope you get an upgrade.

We have just returned from a 7 night holiday at the Ponent Mar Apartments. The rooms were very clean and tidy apart from the occasional ant, which the hotel cannot be blamed for (they were very helpful in getting rid of them.) We stayed in an apartment and the view from the balcony was lovely. The only slight complaint was the lack of english TV channels other than the news in the room which may bother some people. We did not use the hotel restaurant as we were in a self catering apartment however the bar was well used due to the wide variety of cocktails and friendly barmen. In terms of location it was a five minute walk to the beach and a wide selection of bars and restaurants, if you wanted to explore further than Palmanova then the hotel will order you a taxi which will arrive in minutes. The pool area was very busy by lunchtime however there are always a few spare sun loungers available. Overall we were extremely pleased with this hotel and we would stay there again if we ever returned to Palmanova.

We have just returned from a 10 night holiday at the Ponent Mar Apartments with our 4 year old daughter. We also travelled with my parents and 16 year old niece. We stayed on a self catering basis (my parents chose bed and breakfast) and had an apartment on the 5th fifth floor which was only one floor above reception. We asked for rooms close together and we got just that - 3 doors away from each other! The rooms are spacious enough and are cleaned 6 days per week. We had all we needed to be self catering as we chose to have breakfast on our balcony to which we had a partial sea view and we chose to eat out everyday. However, it would be beneficial if a kettle and toaster was provided in the apartment. The apartments, grounds, swimming pool area and restaurants/bar areas are all spotlessly cleaned and maintained to a high standard. The apartments offer fantastic views across the bays of Palma Nova particularly from the swimming pool area. The apartments are situated up a small hill, slightly away from the hustle and bustle (which we prefer), but this is nowhere near as steep and long as the hill we reside on! So this was not a problem for us walking up and down most evenings to the resort of Palma Nova for our evening meal or to the beach - 10 minutes at the very most! There is an entertainment programme and I do feel this could be improved slightly to offer more varied shows, however our daughter did enjoy the mini disco!
All the staff at the apartments are very friendly and helpful and there are also offers and discounts available for day trips such as the waterparks, mini golf, marineland etc for Ponent Mar guests.
Overall this was the perfect apartment complex to stay for our holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We would definitely return again!

these apartments are the best I,ve stayed in in Majorca I stayed in a studio which to my suprise had a sea view but a small balcony but there was just me and my wife so was,nt a problem the all you can eat buffet with wine and water only cost 30 euro for 2 persons and was fantastic the views from the terrace below the pool were we sunbathed was breathtaking the staff are very professional and helpful the more expensive rooms have a great view but for 2 people the studios are fine also the place is spotless I would highly recommend these apts they are more like a hotel with a fridge and cooking facilities.there is a bit of a hill up from the sea front some people and senior citizens might struggle with but you can always get a taxi there is a great supermarket on the main road behind the apts this is also where you get the bus to palma I will be returning to Ponentmar next year. ps aircon is free.

Room Tip: High floors have the best views but all are good
