We've just returned from a lovely holiday at the Sa Coma Playa Apartments. We arrived late in the evening by Resorthoppa mini bus which we've never used before but worked very well. The elderly gentleman on reception was a little hard to understand but we got there in the end! We were given our all inclusive bands, room keys and told there was a cold buffet left for us in the dining room. We decided to firstly go to our room (which was on the fifth floor). There were 2 lifts and the entrance to the apartment face the inner courtyard of the hotel while the balcony faced out, making the most of the fantastic views. We had booked a one bedroomed apt thinking the kids would sleep on the sofas in the lounge but soon discovered we had been given a two bedroomed apt :-) It was very spacious with a large living area, dining area, kitchenette (with a very handy fridge), 4 piece bathroom, two good size bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and 2 sets of patio doors leading out to the balcony (one from the lounge and one from bedroom 1. Nice to know the kids couldn't get to the balcony from their room). The apartment was clean but a little tired. The light above the dining table was dodgy, table had been drawn on, hole in one of the interior doors and flaking varnish round door frames. :-( We didn't find these to be major problems but some people might object. Next we decided to find food and visited the dining which was on the ground floor round the corner from reception. The buffet consisted of cold meat (salami and luncheon meat), slices of cheese and bread, not great but we were starving!!!!! Next visit was to the bar which had a great choice of drinks (tea, coffee, hot choc, pepsi, sprite, fanta, lager, red and white wine, sangria, malibu, tia maria, brandy, vodka, etc., etc.) It was very easy to get whatever drink you wanted no queuing, no problems and a smiling friendly barman!!! We took our seats on the outside terrace by the pool which was very pleasant but we couldn't miss the terrible row coming from the outdoor stage!!!! German entertainer, german songs and lots of german guests. Unfortunately the german nation did not score A+ at the School of Manners. They do not queue, push in, do not say "Bitte" or "Danke" and DO NOT SMILE!!!
The next day we went to breakfast and found it a perfectly acceptable experience. It was buffet style with choices of cereal, yoghurt, fruit, bread (sliced, buns, petit pain, croissant) meat, cheese, bacon, beans and eggs (fried, scrambled and hard boiled).
Next out to the pool. Plenty of sunbeds (usual towel reserving went on but plenty to go round). Pool was clean but area round pool got a little slippy when wet and became a little messy with all the plastic cups people didn't bother to put in the bins provided (always clean again next morning)
There was always a good choice of salad, pickles, fish, potatoes, meat, veg, four flavours of ice cream (happy but hyper kids), fresh fruit, cakes and sweets at both lunch and dinner.
Evenings were the worst time at sa coma playa. The entertainment was pretty dia!!! We used this time to explore the resort of Sa Coma. The "Magic Fun Park" was great with a nice bar and very friendly staff, bungees, trampolines, bouncy castle, go karts etc, etc but of course this all had to be paid for as it was off site. The bar and entertainment complex on the headland near to the hotel was great too.
All in all we had a lovely time at Sa Coma Playa Apts, good points were the lovely spacious apts, location and value for money, bad points were rudeness of Germans and terrible entertainment.
