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.

DAVID C,

2nd time, not as good

First visited this hotel in march, had a fantastic time, this time round went beginning of june for 4 nights and area totally different ! Requested front sea view, high floor, got lower floor and pool view, horrible room, right near the road and the disco that went on till all hours, requested a change of room to be told all booked up, shame as this ruined the holiday for us really, and had such a good time the first time round. Food was still good, lots of choice and hot. Entertainment was good, the opera singer is spectacular ! as the hotel is right near magaluf it was extremly noisy this time of year. and the final thing that made our trip, was the rush for the sun beds in the morning ! omg, couldn't believe it - i actually videoed and put it up on u tube !!! the minute the doors opened at 9am the rush began, within 5 mins, all beds reserved with a towel and no one around !! most of the reserved beds sat there with a towel on and no people for very large amounts of time and i never saw anyone asked to move !More

Did not want to leave!

We wanted a nice hotel to stay at after our cruise as everyone said we will regret having a "Land" holiday instead of two weeks on board. So glad we didn't ( as much as really loved the cruise) we would have missed staying at this wonderful hotel! I had read all the reviews and they were all true! Everything was spotless the staff were very friendly and helpful, I can't walk very far at the moment so they arranged for me to hire an electric scooter (about €15 a day or €80 odd for the week) that was a god send for me to whizz around! The location was perfect ,we loved sitting on the balcony with a bottle or two of wine (Better choice in the bigger Spa supermarket to your right as you come out of hotel) watching the sunset! The fridge was handy to keep drinks & snacks chilled and we thought the complimentary milk,tea,coffee and water a nice touch too. The room was lovely and plenty of space for the two of us. The bed was big and so comfortable as were the pillows! As for the food....you could not fault it or the service! It was lovely to sit outside having your breakfast and evening meal opposite the beach if you wanted. You had a very good choice of food for breakfast . Buffet style very good quality.Full English ,even my husbands favourite black pudding ! Eggs cooked how you liked from omelettes to boiled. Continental meats,cheeses,cakes pancakes and croissants etc . The food on the evening was excellent ! Different soups and salads every night and a delisous variety of main courses plus a carvery ! The lamb and the ribs were so tender! And don't get me started on the desserts! From gateauxs to crumbles pure indulgence! I can feel the weight creeping on as I write this lol! They also had a Gala night which was very nice. I can't really comment on the entertainment as we only stayed in to watch a comedian one night as most of the reviews say it seems to be for the slightly older clientele (even though we are late 50's)but everyone seemed to be having a great time ,they were all so friendly ! We were there from October 14th till 21st so it was quite quiet but we ate out a couple of times and found some nice restaurants / bars.in the evening to go to. Viceroy's opposite the hotel was nice and stayed open later than the others along Palma Nova front! The only tiny criticisms I have is that even though the pool looked so inviting (one of the reasons I choose the hotel was it had steps to walk into it) it was just too cold had it been heated it would have been perfect as the weather was 27/28. Most days! And my other niggle was the evening meal finished to early at 8.45pm perhaps it's us but we like to eat later whilst on holiday . But to sum it up, we had a fantastic first and hopefully not the last stay at the Son Matias. If you are thinking about booking this hotel ...don't .... just book it quickly whilst you can. You will not regret it !🍷More

Brilliant Palma Nova Hotel

This was our first visit to this hotel and this part of the Island usually spending time in the north , and it was more than we had anticipated ,excellent location right on the Palma Nova Beach with stunning sea views. lovely rooms, excellent food with a fantastic choice every night, so easy to put on weight !!! and a brilliant entertainment program with very good cabaret acts every evening. Kelly the resident entertainer was really good,she has a bubbly nature which makes you warm to her immediately and the competitions and quizzes she presented were very good . I just need to re-iterate the position of this hotel, right on the beach, just right for a swim in the warm sea, and if so desired a swim either in the pool or relax in the jacuzzi . We look forward to returning for another top notch relaxing holiday. The Management and all staff at the hotel need to be commended on their friendly ,efficient and courteous service provided to all guests, to make them feel welcome and a valued customer .More
