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.

Evening entertainment programme
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.

Have now stayed at this hotel 7 times and cannot fault the hotel, staff are brilliant, hotel spotless. At least people cannot leave towels on there sunbed all day while they go out and about preventing anyone else from using them, if you leave them a ticket is placed on them and you have 1 hour to return, if you are not back then the towels are removed, which i think is fair to everyone. Food is good and plentiful at both breakfast and dinner. I would like the evening buffet a bit more varied as it is the same as the first week but cannot complain as there is plenty choice an it is always piping hot and is checked regularly by the chef. Fantastic views from every room and right on the beach with a choice of palma nova or magaluf for night life, bus stops just round the corner and goes to other resorts as well as palma city. Will be returning again as this hotel is hard to beatMore

We have stayed here twice now & re-booked for 2014. The standard is first class, reception extremely helpful, all rooms have a sea or pool view, its an adults only hotel, the food is the best, so fresh and something for everyones taste and plentiful. The pool is a little on the small side but you have the sea directly outside the gate. PalmaNova is a pleasant friendly place, flat for walking, local buses are cheap and easy to use. It is only 2hrs from the UK which is great and the sun is always shining!More

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
