I have not stayed in any other hotel in Santa Ponsa but I have been around the world and this is the first time in all my years of traveling that I can say that a hotel is perfect. Members of staff are amazing and the rooms are clean and the whole hotel is beautiful. We are going back! (read more)

Fantastic welcome was quickly let down by poor customer service, rude staff and ridiculous on the spot fines. Families only unless you are willing to treat the place like a library!! No sheets given for couch bed and towels for 2 people provided despite 4 in apartment. Food in bar was good but one member of staff was particularly rude and unhelpful. Would not recommend and definitely won't be going back! (read more)

I can not emphasize how good this hotel was. We had two beautiful apartments room 131 and 132 and we were delighted with the accommodation and the staff. Although the hotel is self catering, we only used the fridge for keeping drinks and milk in because food and drinks were good value for money and who wants to cook on holiday. It seems that the majority of the guests in this hotel have been there many times in the past and that says a lot. The entertainers are hilarious and kept us laughing... (read more)

Santa Ponsa well what can we say!
Did not enjoy our holiday here, it is, for a start, way too pricey for what it is. Food, drink, travel, all expensive. You could go to the Canaries and spend less than here. Bars near the hotel like the Dubliner which are dirty and unhygenic to Simplys bar which is full of dirt and grime and smells accordingly can charge Dublin prices for drink, but are buying their drink at a fraction of the price that Irish publicans buy drink for. So why do they see fit... (read more)

We have been going to Spain every year since late 80s and we think of Holiday Park Apartments and Santa Ponsa very highly. Holiday Park is the kind of place that makes you feel welcome from day one and makes you sad when you are departing. The reception staff, the waiters, the entertainers and even the pool cleaners are so friendly and so caring that we made friends with them. The hotel is always clean and the pool area is the place to be.
Food and drinks are exceptionally great at the bar.... (read more)

This was our fourth trip to Santa Ponsa but unfortunately will be our last. However we cant fault the Holiday Park as we have stayed here 3 times from the 4 and it is excellent, its the resort that isn't, it has gone downhill so much in 7 years. Its got dirty, with less and less visitors every year. Bars like the Dubliner and Simplys insist on robbing people with drink prices and its putting people off the resort we think. However the beach bars have remained the same and are brill, its... (read more)

Great hotel, no problems to report except all the steps but you get used to them. Good offers on drink and fun karaoke.
Go down the road to roundabout and all the main bars are there. The Shamrock bar is brill, as is Dannys Corner, Disco Inferno, Seans Place all the best ones. The beach is spotless and really nice. It was desperately quiet however and we hear that Santa Ponsa tourist numbers have been dropping for years with this year the worst apparently.
Great restaurants were El Ceibo,... (read more)

From the management down to the cleaning staff it was a case of making sure you enjoyed your stay.Every time you passed by the reception area you were greeted with a smile and a cheery word. I have rarely met more helpful staff in my worldwide travels.

Great hotel, we enjoyed our time here last year. Will be going back in July this year. Rooms were clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The only criticism is that it can be noisy in August with teenagers but not too bad. Good pool and a 5 minute walk to the beach. It on the main strip where all the bars are and again at this time of the year can be very boisterous and noisey with teens taking over.

Nice resort altough a little dated, could do with some investment. Besides that it is nearly sure to be hot and the beach is kept clean and is in a cove very nice. The resort is full of restaurants and bars. Go to the beach either side and there are some fabulous eateries. Go up Ramon de Moncada and eat in Rafters or Mrs Murphys Kitchen good food and good value. Stay clear of the Dubliner restaurant and bar its a rip off. Go and see Pirates in MAGALUF, well worth the visit. (read more)

We stayed in Holiday Park apartments for 7 nights and we all had a good time. The hotel is in a privileged part of santa ponsa with many nearby restaurants and pubs. The Hotel serve quality food and drinks and the prices are just a little more expensive than outside bars and restaurants, but I would say that the quality was also better within Holiday Park too.
Staff were friendly and my kids loved them. The rooms are not massive but they are ok. The cleaners did a good job and kept... (read more)

Stayed at holiday park hotel apartments for 10 days in May 2009 and met 4 mega famous football players staying at this hotel while we were there and it was incredible to see them like everyone else enjoying a karaoke. Apparantly May and June is when all footballers stay at holiday park before the season starts. We were so pleased that we have already made a reservation to go back in May 2010. Don't think that this means that you have to be a football fan to enjoy it here though.

The Holiday Park Apartments were quite nice. One drawback being that you had to hire a kettle, toaster or hairdryer, although we used a saucepan to boil water. Apartments are very basic. Air conditioning remote controls have to be hired at 5 euro's per night so it works out quite expensive if the weather is hot.
