Available from May 2017. Designed for 3 to 11-year-olds, our Kids’ Clubs by Family Life offer daytime activities, five times a week. To ensure all activities suit your little and not-so-little ones, we’ve split the Clubs into age groups and tailored the activities for each. Just like in our Family Life resorts, there’s Bamse Club for 3 to 5-year-olds and @611 Club for 6 to 11-year olds, so you and your kids get a taste of the full experience. For your peace of mind, all of our Kids’ Club team are trained to UK standards by TUI, and have undergone relevant checks.

Outdoor pool

It’s designed like a cloverleaf with one leaf set aside for toddlers, and edged by sun terraces laden with loungers and palms.

Splash pool

The little ones won't want to leave once they see the menagerie that is the hotel splash pool. With slides, waterfalls and water jets this custom made splash area will keep them happy for hours.

Nice place, great staff, but nothing if your 12 yrs old

Let's start with the good: well it's a good pool area with small slides, dining area and rooms are nice, clean and well maintained. The sauna/spa is lovely and the place is well located on the far edge of a beautiful bay, within a causal stroll of Porto de pollenca. Not so good: well I went here on holiday with twin boys who are both 12, the kids club stops at 11 and the adult activities (as I was told when I got there) start at 14. Which left me in on a holiday entertaining them 24/7. Now I don't mind too much but surely there must be something that 12 and 13 yr olds can do. My only other grumble is some of the entertainment which was quite poor and always starts at 10, after the bingo!! Tbh I was surprised there was bingo every night at 9:30, which personally made it feel like I'd gone on a Haven holiday rather than to Majorca. Overall: Lovely place, and if you like bingo you're in heaven. Really need something for 12 and 13 yr olds to do.More

Ian L,

Lovely family holiday

We stayed here as a family of 4 - all inclusive. This is a lovely family hotel, perfect for children of all ages, I have a 8 year old and a 1 year old who both absolutely loved it. The hotel is around a 25 minute walk along the 'pine walk' to the centre of Puerto pollensa, the walk is beautiful! We had a 1 bedroom apartment, it was a little on the small side but for a week it was fine. The bedroom had a double bed and cot in it, and the living room a sofa bed. We put the sofa bed into the bedroom and all shared one room as we got up earlier than the children. The room deco is a little dated but it had everything you need. We had a room in block 4 overlooking the restaurant and pool. I would definitely recommend a room in either block 4 or block 1 as these are further away from the the entertainment if you want some quiet in the evening. That said the entertainment finished at 11 and the bar closes at 1130. The food is very good, different variety each night but always your basic pasta, chips etc out each day. The waiters/waitress were friendly and helpful especially Jose Luis - my youngest was always happy to see him. The entertainment was good, they work extremely hard and always make a effort! The mini disco starts at 8.30, bingo at 9 then the entertainment at 10. They have various games etc though out the day around the pool. I cannot comment on the Thomson kids club as my children enjoyed the pool and the activities the hotel laid on. Sunbeds - yes you do need to get up ridiculously early (6.30am) if you want one around the pool or kids splash park area, to be honest they are usually all gone by 8.30am but this is peak time for the hotel and most parents do want to be able to watch there children in the pool whilst relaxing. The swimming pool is a good size, but the slash park is amazing for children - there are different slides for each age range. The pool bar has sandwiches and biscuits available though out the day and a Buffet lunch from 12-3. We preferred to eat inside for lunch as it was very hot when we were there. The shop inside the hotel is reasonably priced with a variety of products, I would recommend taking enough nappies and wipes with you as I found these very expensive to buy in the resort. We had a amazing time at Playa Mar, the staff are always willing to help and are extremely friendly - Would definitely recommend!! We shall hopefully return soon. More


Great family holiday

We visited in July on our holiday/honeymoon and would definitely visit again. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted with a glass (or 2) of cava and nibbles. Check in was quick and easy and staff friendly. Our room was clean with all the essentials provided. An iron with ironing board, cutlery, 2 ring hob, fridge, kettle, safe, air con, and English tv with some sky channels. Around the hotel there are 3 pools. 2 splash pools for the kids and a main pool where activities such as water polo and aerobics are held. The kids loved the splash pool. Actually, I loved the splash pool. We had many water fights in the 10 glorious days we had there. Make sure you get up early to reserve a sun lounger though. There are signs saying you can't reserve but you try and get one at 9am, they've all gone. Kids club was a hit. It was lovely having a couple of hours child free to spend some me time daily! Various activities happening throughout the day such as archery, table tennis, face painting, t-shirt painting as well as the entertainment etc. The food was amazing and I never got bored with it. They had various themed nights such as Asian, Mexican, Spanish and waiting staff always dressed for the occasion. Breakfast included choices of hot food like your bacon, sausage, egg, beans and pastries of croissants, pain au chocolate. There was also fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereals. Monday mornings there are pancakes which were great smothered in Nutella. Coffee was served to your table and I couldn't fault it. Can't comment on a cup of tea as I never tried one. Lunch is served at the snack bar from 12pm and at the restaurant from 1pm. Snack bar mainly consisted of burgers, chips, bread, salad and pizza. The restaurant had more choice with chicken, fish, steaks, rice etc. You can also order soft drinks and/or alcohol from your table. Hot drinks are not available during lunch and tea in the restaurant. There are 2 lovely ponds just outside of the restaurant with Koi carps taking residence and the hotel cat, Ricky, likes to take his spot near the ponds. Ricky was a hit with everyone and surprisingly tolerant at being stroked and handled all day long. The evening entertainment was mainly dance acts. Kids mini disco starts first at 8:30 followed by bingo about an hour later and then the show at about 10pm. Various drinks and cocktails are available. Oh and WiFi!! We managed to get WiFi everywhere even our room. The strongest signal is around the pool and in the theatre. Hotel was situated in a fantastic spot, at the start of the famous Pine Walk. I recommend people take a stroll along the Pine Walk, the scenery is amazing. Fantastic views of the sea and mountains. Huge villas, locals swimming and sunbathing, restaurants and shops. Anybody visiting Aparthotel Playa Mar and Spa won't be disappointed, we certainly wasn't and if we hadn't have already booked next years holiday we would've returned back here. Maybe 2018.More

Fabulous family hotel

Our friends were staying at this hotel with an 11 year old daughter. Although we have no children it is a fantastic family hotel. So many things for the children to do during the day and great entertainment for the parents in the evening. Our friends were all inclusive and said the food was fabulous. Only a couple of minutes from the beach. Extremely noisy with happy children but highly recommended for families.More

M W,

Amazing staff and great atmosphere

We went to the playa mar as a family of 7, 3 adults and 4 kids aged 10, 9, 6 and 4. We came home on Monday. There is not one thing that we can fault. We had room 101 and 201 in block 3 and they were perfect for us. All the staff work super hard and always have a smile on their face, we often thanked them and they said "if you are happy we are happy". The food is nice, with plenty of choice and always hot . Entertainment is varied day and night. Great comedy bingo! The pool is fab with the slides. Reception staff speak good English. Special mention to Stefan, Fran, Manuel and John Louis. Oh and Tom the thomson rep. Loved the dance in a morning and afternoon, especially when all the hotel staff joined in, it was a real special touch. As was fran going round with the sangria and cocktails by the pool in the afternoon. We would 100% recommend to others and really really want to return next year.....best get saving the pennies. See you soon playa mar. It was fab! xxMore
