Unfortunately we had the first night in a room to the parking lot and on the street side to spend, where we the whole night to progress were to investigate, where the permanent motorgeheule of came, which alredy sleep. Also it smelled of air circulation, which it was -5 riesenabzugsventilatoren of a neighboring hotel. The next morning i another 'more peaceful room' asked, which i got. This was really not a problem. This room was to the pool and on the 3. …  read hotel review

We have just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday in Santa Ponsa This is our second visit to Santa Ponsa, our first time to stay in the Hesperia. I would be one to use Trip Advisor quite a lot to plan our holiday breaks as I generally find the reviews to be quite honest and accurate and a great way of planning where to stay and what activities are good and safe. Having read up on the Hesperia to be honest I was a little bit anxious to say the least, my main concern was the “Air Conditioning” or the ... lack of mention of Air conditioning in the reviews. Upon arriving at the hotel we were met by the night porter who checked us in with ease and very fast. Our first impression was it is CLEAN, our room was on the first floor overlooking the pool area. The room is a Hotel Room in a 3 star hotel, it had TWO beds which I will say were very comfy. The TV hung on the wall just like all other 3 Star hotels that we have stayed in. There were sliding wardrobes, with electronic safe, there were a number of light switches on the walls to switch the lights on and off just like any 3 Star or 4 Star hotel for that matter, I hope you see where I am coming from ! it is a 3 star hotel with 3 star facilities, but 3 star facilities of the highest standards. The bathroom was I recon above 3 star standards, hey the shower was great, good power no limescale in the shower head, the water was as hot or cold as you would want. One of the big fears we had was that we were going to have to listen to a mouthy compere going on to the early hours of the morning trying to justify their presence of having the title of entertainment manager, well this to our delight was not the case, the entertainment went on to exactly 11.00pm and then ceased which in turn sounded bliss, one could then turn of the lights and either leave the balcony door open and have the beautiful sea breeze blow in or you could close the doors and have a GENTLE and quiet air conditioned room, which is the way it is supposed to be, not so harsh that it would freeze a brass monkey !!! Next morning we went down to breakfast, WOW what a selection of food was available, now I for one found it hard to choose where to start, there was something for everyone's taste, the same goes for the DINNER sitting as well, if I am to be honest it was way more than we could have ever anticipated, the selection was vast, the quality of the food was second to none, the layout of the dining room was spacious the waiter staff were fast courteous and friendly at all times, To finish off writing this review, We both are very choosy as to where we stay when we go abroad and spend our hard earned cash, we want value for money and boy did we get value for money at the Hespeia, we got more than we anticipated, would we stay there again YES we would This is one hotel that goes beyond what it says on the packet, highly recommend it for a holiday stay. read hotel review

  • October 2013
I would like to mention. It is the first holiday in a 3 star hotel and the first holiday on Majorca. Usually we visit 4-5 star hotels in the Canary Islands. Because this year we have three weeks in the 5* Lopesan Baobab were and just a holiday follow up on one further wanted, we chose this from. The hotel seems at first glance quite modern, so long one it not locally considered. One noticed very clearly the difference to a 4 star hotel, but from the beginning was clear. The aim was, still time to soak up the sun. ... The hotel has many, the rooms were quite small. The room is almost only from bed. The building is old, the room was not always clean and a balcony facing the wrong side for a regular a smell of exhaust and kloduft of the nearby McDonald's. Wi-fi is available in the 'lobby' free of charge. With luck even in the room usable. Extremely negative is the clairaudience. You could at night the neighbors scharchen hear and in the morning one heard what channels he run had. About us then the constant back of tables and chairs, in the hallway the clear conversations of the guests. Bad. From 7 hours thus no calm sleep more. read hotel review

    Oh well... The ladies at the reception had mostly a smile on the lips, but of service one cannot talk. The welcome just a release without many words. The servers in the restaurant mostly unfriendly and overstrained. Charwomen only after three days created stains on the toilet seat (from the previous guests) to remove. But the best there was every evening in the dining room. 1. no idea why an entertainer in a outfit with a clipboard there, but their outfits were as you actually only from the Ballermann starting from a certain time knows. 2. drink prices could not be on the bill of the room. Instead one had to directly after the food lines and figures. Next to the cash a large red bucket for the tip, and a packet of zahnstochen. Well, the 'waiter' was actually quite okay, its representation, however, was so anti-social and unprofessional... These two people have always managed, each guest when leaving the chamber friendly face to smile, behind the back but with almost every guest to blaspheme and on it to make it. The representation of the saalchefs it has not managed young women in paying, not on the breasts to look. And they were a little bigger, so he could not hide with his colleague to laugh. Amazing! In total, the entire staff was a bunch of amateurs without large training try something to earn money.

    The pool was cold, the pool chairs were so close together, that one of the front on the pool chair, as between the pool chairs no place is. The pool chairs were no beach chairs anymore, they are rather hammocks. You could even get the idea, the coverings of the chairs to follow suit, in other words to tighten, but that would be connected to work with. Animation gave it probably also, but these sat lunch at the bar and told with the waiters. In the evening there was then quite often shows, the partly not bad.

  • Gastronomy
    2.0

    A restaurant, many guests, little food and bad food. Carrots come out of a tin, beetroot also... And then as meat frozen patties on the grill was clear to me... In this holiday i will take at least not to. At this point i would like to once again make it clear. Us was aware, that we not 5 *, but a 3 star hotel have. I am no variety, no attention to detail... But what i get, can least be good... But it was not. Dessert for example, what my paradedisziplin been heard only 2 times per week touch.

    The location is on the beach was very good. Just across the road and it has a nice, well-kept beach in front of you. The proximity to the McDonald's and the constant feeling in the toilet of the restaurants to find, but no good impression. To stroll in the evening, there were some shops, but all the same to sell, souvenirs etc. Party correctly make you can not, but there are a few good bars with super of live music. We were lucky, that at the time the oktoberfest was... Was really great.

    Small room, large bed. Sleep could i well, that is in a hotel half the rent. The tv was as big as a iPad and had two german channels. The air conditioning worked very well, but i i've been asked, if not extremely a lot of mold spread will, as it's in all the rooms around us and the whole hotel just has cough hear... This is no joke now. The safe cost 2 €per day, which was okay. The decor is for a 3 star hotel ok.

We had a very nice vacation in Santa Ponsa. Very clean and quiet hotel with friendly staff. We would rather recommend a room to the pool side, since the hotel right next to the main road. In the hotel mainly english spoken. The food is unfortunately a minus. Very monotonous and tasteless. The pool is large and very clean. The beach is directly opposite from the hotel. The rooms were cleaned daily. Size of the room was adequate. We definitely recommend the hotel! read hotel review
