Location is a major selling point here – the hotel is just steps away from shops, bars, restaurants and a sandy beach.
The location makes this adults-only hotel really popular. There’s a sandy beach just outside the back gate, and shops, bars and restaurants at the front. Plus, local buses stop here on their way to Palma and Santa Ponsa.
The pool has a whirlpool bath, next to a bar serving chilled drinks and snacks. In the evenings, buffet dinners are followed by cabaret and dance shows.
There are daily games and quizzes to keep you busy, and come evening, professional acts perform for you in the lobby bar. Dance shows and cabaret are also on the programme, or for something a bit more relaxed there is occasional music and games of bingo.
Lovely hotel in the perfect setting right on the beach. Really cannot fault anything about the hotel itself. But and this might sound petty but the biggest majority of the guest at this hotel are age 70+. I am young at heart and in my 40s and needed a bit more stimulation than the entertainment offered. A care home for those in their twilight years springs to mind.
That said the food was excellent for a buffet and we did eat in every night because it was good. Bedrooms all have a sea view, are a good size and clean. But you do get wakened every night with you upstairs neighbours noise which is not their fault but to do with heavy wardrobes and marble floor. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my friends but it is ideal for the older generation.More

location great but some things could be improved.
The location is ideal straight on the beach overlooking the bay.Food is 95% english with a good choice. Maintence staff superb. Free wifi but on some devices need to sign in everytime..Entertainment for us ranged from poor to very good depending on the acts-Friday nights mowtown revue were the best.The driving force behind the entertainment was Michael who has since left to go to Tokyo.Thomson reps not very knowlegable.Good bus service into Palma.One of the things that we thought let the hotel down was it's policy of only supplying 3 days worth of coffee/tea/milk which we were told were complementary and if we wanted more we would have to go and get some--the phase Mean-spiritedness is Self defeating springs to mind. It wasn't what we would expect in budget hotel never mind a 4 star Hotel that has advertised tea &coffee making facilities! The bathrooms could maybe be brought up to date with a walk in shower/wet room especially considering the age of the guests. Outside is parking for 25 Mobility scooters and only 5 cars! Cleanliness is superb. Wine and drinks are resonably priced.Waiters a bit slow at clearing plates to busy talking among themselves at times.The higher the floor the better in respect of the rooms.More

very peaceful week
Stayed the last wek of the season when the resort was very quiet but this suited us fine. The hotel was spotless, all the staff were really friendly and helpful and the room had a great view over the beach. Every room has a fridge, great for the G and T's, milk and bottled water were provided on arrival, rooms cleaned every day.
We booked last minute for a week of sun and relaxation and were not dissapointed at all.The pool area was really clean and the pool was "refreshing" to say the least. The beach is ten metres from the pool area and was pretty quiet at this time.
The food was definitely geared to an exclusively British clientelle but they obviously know their market, it was plentiful and there was always something to satisfy you.
Breakfast was excellent with a huge choice to suit every taste.
We were probably the youngest guests in the place but it was great not to have grubby fingers in the buffet or kids running around the pool area. The entertainment was also targetted at its main audience so not necessarily to my taste but this didn't detract from what was a really relaxing week. I would imagine in high season the resort and surrounding bars would generate more noise but this was not a problem at the end of October.
I would definitely stay here again for another quiet week.More

Best hotel ever
Being a retired couple we have had many great holidays over the years and stayed in very good hotels,and also disappointing ones but the Son Matias Beach Palmanova in all my experiences has to be the best ever. The moment we checked in to the hotel you could feel the warmth and friendliness within, starting of course with the welcoming, smiling,reception staff.
The rooms were bright, clean and airy the beds being very comfortable,and the high point being having tea and coffee facilities. The food in the restaurant was superb,hot and plentiful with the added bonus of the friendly and fun loving waiting staff. The entertainment in the evenings with Michael and Luca both of whom were excellent hosts and worked so hard to ensure we had a great time (and we did).
The hotel is in a great location with the beach just across the promenade and the shops only metres away.
Although I adore children it is lovely when on holiday to be child free as the Matias Beach is adult only.
Well done son Matias beach loved you and hope to return soon !!More
