The Son Matias is a big sandy-coloured hotel that takes pride of place on Palma Nova’s waterfront. Just footsteps from the beach, and within flip-flopping distance of the bars, shops and restaurants, it’s a great central base for seeing the best of Palma Nova.
Aside from the winning location, it’s the generous helping of entertainment that helps make this place so popular. It’s an adults-only hotel, so during the day things are pretty laid-back and focus mainly on the pool. It’s just a frisbee-throw from the beach and comes framed by a sun terrace and palms. Come sunset though, things are turned up a notch, with professional acts, cabaret and dance shows.
Couple great entertainment with a decent dining scene and things look even rosier. The restaurant here is a buffet specialising in Spanish and British meals so you can start the day with a fry-up and end it with a local dish like paella. Other highlights include themed buffets and gala dinners served with sparkling wine.
Lastly, there’s the bedrooms. Painted in sunshine yellow and cream, they’ve got a warm, welcoming feel. They’re all air-conditioned, and come with tea and coffee kits and hairdryers, so they make comfy holiday bases. But it’s the sweeping views of the bay from the balconies that really add the X factor.

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.
Start your day with a buffet breakfast, and finish your day with something from the delicious evening buffet spread. Sample some of the local Spanish cuisine, or a traditional English dish.
A kidney shaped pool, surrounded by sunbeds shaded by palm trees. Pool towels are provided.

Good service guaranteed
We stayed at the end of October. Clientele were definitely of elderly variety so entertainment geared to them Got a little tired of the playing of same line dancing music night after night. However view fromsea view room was superb. Staff were very helpful and friendly. A little disappointed that the resort began closing around us.More

This is our second trip to this hotel and we were very impressed by the improvements that have been made since our last visit. The hotel has a modern, contemporary feel and could not have a better location - right on the beach. The flat screen TVS in public areas provided useful information about the entertainment and daily menus etc. Our room was very comfortable, including the beds and even the chairs on the balcony. Our room was quiet and because we did not go in high summer we did not experience the noise at night from the promenade as has been suggested during summer months. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The only slight negative is that the food was a bit repetitive and we were very disappointed that we were only permitted 2 teabags, 2 coffees,2 sugars and 2 milk per day in our room. Not good for a 4 star hotel.What really annoyed my husband was the fact that every time you went to the bar for a bottle of water or a coffee, the change was presented in a 'tip saucer'. No one minds tipping good service but just passing you a bottle of water is hardly deserving of a tip. Having said that, we would definitely return.More

This was our first visit to Son Matias Beach but it won't be our last! All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The bar and restaurant areas were clean and comfy. The food was just superb, more like a 5 star hotel. We stayed for 14 nights and not once did we have a disappointing meal. For us, the bonus was being able to eat breakfast and our evening meal out on the terrace, overlooking the beach. Our room was clean, comfy and spacious, overlooking the blue/green sea, with a big balcony with table and chairs. The Bali beds by e pool were lovely. The evening entertainment was good too. Overall, one of he best holidays we have had, with the hotel exceeding our expectations!More

Son Matias Hotel
Just returned from a fab holiday at the Son Matias Beach Hotel, and we had a wonderful time. We haven't had a holiday there since 2009, but the way the staff greeted us was as if they had seen us recently. We had beautiful gifts because it was our 5th visit as well. The staff are so friendly, and since we were there last the Hotel has been refurbished, and looks very fresh and modern. The food was very good too, quite a nice selection to choose from. We won't be leaving it so long for our next visit.. See you soon we hope....More
