TThe Ses Savines Hotel is spot on when it comes to location. It's just minutes from the beach and 10 from the lively bars and restaurants in San Antonio's centre. At base, a beachside pool and bright rooms are the order of the day.
For a holiday based around the beach, this hotel is in the perfect spot. It's a 1-minute wander from the sandy beach of San Antonio Bay, and only 10 from the centre of town and its bars and restaurants.
As for the hotel itself, it's a low-rise whitewashed place with a good-sized square pool outside. There's a snack bar out here too. Plus, the sun terrace overlooks the beach.
On the inside, the rooms are bright and simply done, with crisp white walls and splashes of colour in the curtains and bedsheets. Come mealtimes, there's a buffet restaurant that lays on breakfasts, stocked with continental and full English options. It also serves dinners like pizza and pasta and local specialties like paella.
Stayed in this hotel a number of years ago (was fine back then) so 21 years later thought would make a return visit. Fastest check in ever, and as it was 9.20pm & found out the restaurant closed at 9.30pm we were rushed through to get our evening meal. This proved to be a good start as there were plenty of choices & tasted very nice. Went up to our room which was pretty standard, a large room with a sea view. It was a rather warm night & could have done with aircon but found out next day it was â¬6 a day, bit steep but you can hire a fan for â¬17.99 a week. We would do this next time. I think the aircon situation is the only downfall with staying here.
The location of this hotel is a winner, pretty much right on the beach with just the promenade in between. In one direction you can walk to the marina & town and the other direction takes you to more shops and bars. Found a nice beech bar that was reasonably priced, was popular because the times we were there was alway busy. Didn't affect the service though.
Hotel staff were all friendly & worked hard keeping the hotel clean & looking professional. Bar prices were a little higher than the bars, but they usually are especially when you are getting such a good deal on the holiday itself. So don't mind too much spending a few pennies there, did have magners on tap for â¬4.50 which wasn't too bad really. Didn't really stay in to watch the entertainment, so can't really comment on that. But it is shared between the Arenal just up the prom.
We went a bit late in the season so bars etc were closing but we managed to find places in the evening to have a drink. Tulp is one to visit then we moved onto Itica when that closed down for the season.
We were lucky with the weather for the week we stayed, with only one not so good day, so decided to go & visit other parts of the island . Otherwise we had 26/28 degrees so couldn't ask for more. Would definitely stay at this hotel again an dont really know why it is only 2*. No different to any of the 3* we usually stay in. Did notice there were plenyt of plug sockets which makes a change & a socket right by the mirror in the bedroom for hair dryer (take your own) or straightners. Also a minor detail which we found handy, was the shelf running the length of the wall above headboard, handy for storage.
It was so nice to lie in bed & look out to the beach. Getting back to the food situation, just like to say food all week was spot on. Alway plenty of choice, nicely cooked & never cold. Could get a little busy at the servery, but never really a problem. Would be a better solution to have the two units split as think this would help ease the build up of people. But glad to say another good pick with our choice of hotel. Keep up the good work.
Ps crazy golf was free which was a bonus.More
Nice Spanish style hotel
we checked in Ses Sevines in October just last week. The hotel is situated in a great location, it is just around the bay area which gives you great access to the port and the surrounding restaurants. I can imagine in the middles of August it's very busy due to it's location, however it was a little bit quieter this time round. The hotel is quaint and the rooms are nice. They have a small villa feel about them and each of the rooms comes with a balcony area which is quite nice. The room we had was at the back of the building, which if you're a light sleeper may be a bit noisy from the dump truck which comes at 2am in the morning, we slept with the doors open as it was still quite warm. Once the doors are shut it's quite warm still. The rooms don't have AC in them and so you would need to hire this out which in October wasn't much of a need, but I can imagine in August, you would definitely need it. The rooms don't have carpet and so any noise from the room upstairs or from the side rooms really is apparent, which ever time of day they're moving around. I think the rooms facing the sea might be slightly quieter as they won't have all the street noise. Other than that, the staff are amazing, they smile and begin to remember your room key number after the 3rd day. The restaurant as part of the hotel is reasonable and the food is good quality. The prices are competitive with the restaurants around and they do a mean cheesy chips. The beer is cheaper than the local bars so this is quite good too. The garden is lovely, it's got trees around the back and lights hanging so in the evening it really gives a villa feel to the hotel which is really authentic. There are 2 pools, and one sees the sun more than the other. The pool at the front is freezing, which actually is quite nice when it's so hot outside, which in October was still around 27degrees. The fact that pool is cold isn't a big thing as the sea and the beach are literally 2 footsteps away from the hotel with easy access.
The cleaners are really good and whatever time we wake up would always leave the room spotless even if it was 3pm. All in all the hotel has a lovely authentic feel about it and I couldn't fault it in any way. The only thing i would say is that the rooms can be noisy, but that's just general moving around and not noisy people on purpose.More

Okay but lots of room for improvement
Emily and all the Thomas Cook staff know very well how to keep customers interested, happy and comfortable however as goes for the hotel staff need a few lessons on customer service and manners and the kitchen area in the apartment is down right disgusting and appalling but apart from that it's an ok hotel.More
Great value for money, family hotel.
We have been going to this family run hotel for years, as it is so well placed. It used to be a quiet, little gem, but now it is packed all summer. The hotel is only 2 Star, it should be a 4 at least. There is a huge selection of food. We love that the staff are very friendly, helpfull and hard working. The rooms are big and clean. Three pools. Great entertainment for the old and young. There is a small room off the reception area that has photos on the wall, of how the hotel and harbour looked back decades ago. Very interesting.
Ses Savines is a stones throw from the beach, which is cleaned every morning. Close to the main town, two big clubs, and lots of entertainment, lively bars and sometimes live music on the beach in the evening.

Excellent location and value for money
Stayed here from the 17th September for 7 nights and can not fault it.
Was booked to stay in the hotel half board but on arrival was moved next door to the apartments, which was a great move. The rooms are basic but clean, I personally found the beds very comfortable. Being on the apartment we had constant air con too. The cleaning staff were very friendly and never disturbed you if you did not want to be.
I really enjoyed the food alway a brilliant variety and most things clearly labeled.
The people in the hotel she varied to families or older couples or younger groups but everyone got along which made the atmosphere more enjoyable. The pool area was a decent size as long as the sun had warmed it up first.
The location of the hotel is amazing close to the beach, bars and clubs and restaurants.
Overall could not fault my holiday I would definitely return to this hotel. Don't be put off by the 2* more like a 3*.More
