Hotel Son Matias Beach  

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.

Pensioners' paradise

Great if you like playing bingo, music quizzes, greyhound racing, anytime from early afternoon to approx. 9.15pm when the entertainment "proper" begins, usually a singer adequately performing the "old" songs. Not great if you like to sit in a nice lounge after your meal and quietly enjoy a coffee or cold drink, as there is nowhere else to sit" Staff very good, food good, hotel very cleanMore

Fantastic setting...

Got back yesterday frm our first ever visit to Majorca. Chose this hotel because of its number one rating on Trip Advisor. I have since read some recent reviews that are not so good. I have to be honest and say I am not in the over 70 age bracket and I did enjoy our two weeks at the hotel. There were predominantly those of older age group at the hotel at first but some younger clientele turned up half way through. It was very obvious that people go back again and again and I can see why. It feels very safe and easy at the hotel. It is not a big hotel, but clean, well kept and the staff are all hard working and friendly. English is spoken all,the time, in fact some of the staff were English. The position of the hotel is stunning, it sits in one of three (that I found) beautiful clean sandy bays where the water is crystal clear. All rooms in the hotel have a sea view and the sunrises are amazing. The rooms are fine, have everything you need including tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge, tv with English channels, aircon and heating (and a safe at extra cost). The sheets were changed every four days, the towels every day if you like and toiletries were replenished as necessary. The beds were extremely comfortable and we slept very well. There was some noise from other guests, but only if they were the sort that did not care if they made a noise! Mostly it was quiet. The balcony was a good size with two comfortable chairs and a small table. The food in the modern dining room was plentiful and there was always something to tempt you. At times I admit the food was a bit overcooked or not hot but it depended on what time you got there. On the whole it was very good and people seemed to tuck in and eat very well indeed. You could order a bottle of wine for 8:40 euros and they would keep it and bring it out the next night until you finished it. Once a week we were served with a free glass of champagne. Lunchtime bar meals were quite good and not expensive and there was always free tea and biscuits at 4pm which was nice. The pool and pool area was lovely. You could exit from that area to the wonderful beach. Pedalloes and boat rides were available as well as sun beds. There were always boats coming and going to see. Kelly the entertainments manager organised games on the beach. In fact she worked tirelessly to keep everyone happy all day every day from 09:30 until after the late evening entertainment (which was good most nights). There was a large lounge were everyone congregated and the entertainment took place. It was quite comfortable there and had a bar selling drinks, snacks and bar meals. There was also a small lounge with big screen TV which showed all the football matches, etc. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which made getting into Palma and beyond very easy. We hired a car for a week and travelled East and inland and to the North to Alcudia and Porta Pollenca, which was fairly easy to do seeing as we had never been there before. Getting lost a couple of times was quite exciting! The scenery was very surprising to me, very green, fantastic mountains and interesting stone villages. Also right outside the door there are little shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants and the lovely coastal walkway in both directions and all on the flat. All were accessible for people with walking difficulties. On the second week a soft ice cream vendor turned up and the ices were really yummy! On the whole we had few complaints really about our holiday at the Son Matias. We were there from the last week in March until the end of the first week on April and the resort was just coming to life and the hotel although it seemed full it was fairly sedate. I don't know if the resort would be as pleasant in the high season of Summer. All I can say is that is was lovely for us this time of year.More

Another lovely week

This was the second visit for us and everything was just as good as the previous time. We are booked for September this year also (hopefully it will be alot warmer) We cannot fault the food and the entertainment is pretty good too. The rooms are lovely and bright with all that you need. The staff are great. What more can I say that hasn't already been said? BrilliantMore

Best Hotel in Palma Nova

This was our 4th stay at the hotel over a number of years and we both thought things were still improving, not that there is too much room for improvement! As usual spotlessly clean and we thought the food had improved a little this year and was excellent for our needs. We thought there were more tea and coffee provided in our room than on our last stay which was good. The location can't be bettered. The staff are all wonderfully friendly and helpful and whilst not over-familiar they are all very friendly and work hard for our enjoyment. It would be unfair to pick out anyone in particular to mention as all are great from the managers to the cleaners to the dining room staff and bar staff to the reception staff. The weather was terrible, the worst in March for some years I'm told but we still enjoyed our holiday. Will be returning in October 2016. Palma Nova and Magaluf were basically closed and don't really get going until end of April so not many restaurants and bars open at this time of year. When we asked at Papis bar for an ice cream we were told they don't get ice cream in until the beginning of May! However with a hotel this good it doesn't really matter! Our thanks to all the staff at the hotel for a wonderful stay. This was the first time we had a room on the pool side and if you want to sit on your balcony this location is better than the front of the hotel as you catch the sun until well into the afternoon. Most of the entertainment is good, some mediocre and some downright dire, but what the hell you don't have to watch it. Drinks are reasonably priced and though not especially cheap are certainly not exorbitant. If you want to get involved in the other activities such as boules or quizzes or other games you can but Kelly doesn't push you into it if you don't want to. Its up to you. In summary, a great place to stay particularly for us of more mature years, without the screaming kids, drunks. Food is English pub food but good and varied. Do as much or as little as you like and unwind. Excellent. Thank you for the wine and biscuits for my birthday. We will be back!!!!More

Just returned from another excellent holiday at Son Matias. Everything superb and to usual extremely high standard. Once again we were welcomed as old friends and nothing was too much trouble. Food was to its normal very high standard and very much enjoyed at the expense of the waist line. Now waiting for the next one.More
