"Beautiful hotel--Great value"

I stayed at the Roc Illetas Playa for 2 nights in a single room. My room was pretty small, but since it included breakfast and dinner it turned out to be a great deal. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel overall was in pristine condition. It is not in the hustle and bustle of Palma, and is very secluded and quiet, but beautiful beaches and cliffs within a stones throw from the hotel. It is about a 35 euro cab ride from the airport, or you can take the 1 and 3 buses for 4 euro total (takes about 20 mins vs. 1 hour though). I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

The Galatzo Hotel was a wonderful stay. We were given a beautiful room with ocean view on the 7th floor and it was perfect. The hotel is located outside of Paguera (small town) and they offered shuttle service but we walked into town a 20 min stroll. Hotel was quiet, private and very pretty. Staff were very nice and accommodating to our requests. Our flight was late afternoon so after checkout they held our bags and we got to use the pool and shower services in the spa complementary. The Halfboard deal was great, the breakfast and dinner offer was very good and great selection. Beautiful views. I went with a friend but would be great for family or couples trips very private. Gym was great too. Wine and Sangria great.

Great Welcome. Warm reception and a cool drink upon arrival at the front desk.
We did not get the room were reserved at first. After three attempts, my wife was able to convince the front desk to honor our pre-paid reservation. Once we settled into our room, our vacation started. The views from our patio were priceless. Quiet and peaceful.
The staff was helpful and respectful. Dining was a plus, the food was excellent, but be careful, a local bottle of wine will cost you 25 Euro at your table while only 2 Euro for the same bottle at the store two blocks away.
Breakfast Buffet was very good. Fresh food and a good selection for any diet.
We are planning our next return. We loved the hotel and location. Its an easy walk to Palma Nova and a simple bus ride to Palma.

Hi There, We stayed in the hotel playa santa ponsa in the first week of July 2009. Upon arrival at the airport we were going to get a bus to santa ponsa but its not very well signed and we dont speak spanish so we had to jump a taxi which cost €37. upon arrival of the hotel we found the reception lady was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a very small room and we were not too happy with the tiny balcony but we were not fussy so we did not ask to change rooms(im sure if we had of requested a different room we would have got it without argument). we were on the first floor so that might explain all the cockroaches!!! the hotel staff were amazing.we dont have any children but our first day and night we stayed on the premises and we had an overcast day and the minute the sun went in, all of the kids club reps were out in full force to keep the kids entertained.it was really brilliant for people with young families. i would definately recommend it to either couples or young families or elderly people.its also wheelchair accessable.we were half board and the food was good.different every night and well worth the extra we paid.the only problem for us was the lack of selection of beer!!
