You get a really big pool and a children’s splash park at this family favourite.
This aparthotel is in a scenic spot beside the mountains. It’s got big outdoor pool and loads for kids, including a splash park and a Thomson-run Kids’ Club. Entertainment is big here, too, with shows most nights.
You’re a 20-minute coastal stroll from Puerto Pollensa’s centre, as well as its main beach. Along the way, there are sandy coves and littler beaches to explore.
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times. Available May to October.

A very last minute booking, booked on wednesday 15/10/2014 and flew on saturday 18/10/2014. Airport transfer to the resort was a bit fiddly, we had to wait at the airport in Palma for over an hour, for another UK flight coming in.However, once we reached Playa Mar the staff were welcoming and very professional. The Playa Mar is obviously geared up for family holidays and many people were enjoying the all inclusive package. I probably would not want to stay there in the summer holidays but for late October everything was fine. Self catering accomodation was everything we could ask for. Rooms cleaned everyday! We walked the Pine Walk everyday to a little beach which was quiet. The sea is crystal clear and very safe to swim in. We found a little english run bar "The Pines" which served excellent breakfasts and snacks which served our purpose at lunchtime. On Thursdays there is the Tapas Tour in which ten local restaurants offer a choice of tapas(choose one only) and either a small beer or a glass of wine for two euros each, a great way to sample local cuisine and get into authentic Mallorcan cooking. Wednesday is market day in the town square which is big but very touristy although the local food produce is great and really well priced.We were lucky with the weather, hottest October on record. A great relaxing break and we will certainly be back.More

Relaxing week in Majorca
Stayed here with my family in August for a last minute week of sunshine and had a really great time. I think with this hotel, you can make it what you want. We got this hotel for a good price, stayed self catering and used it as a base apartment for visiting the beach and eating out in town every night. The town is probably about 15 minutes walk away, but we quite enjoyed the walk before our food! Personally, we weren't interested in any of the entertainment, poolside activities or hotel facilities, as we had gone with the intention of visiting the beach and going out for meals at night in the town. However, we noticed plenty of families who stayed by the pool every day and made the most of the kids club etc, so it all depends on what you want and what you make it! For us, the pool was too loud, with blaring music constantly, we much preferred the peaceful beaches! There's plenty of beautiful little beaches along the pine walk, we found a particular spot that we visited every day. In the town you will find endless arrays of restaurants, all with varying prices. If you're prepared to spend a little bit more, you can dine out on little jettys into the sea, which was gave a really beautiful view while eating! There is also a restaurant fairly close to the hotel called the Laguna, which serves really lovely food at a good price, with a wide range of options to suit everyone. There is also entertainment on twice a week, a jazz player and a singer. The hotel rooms are on the small side, but don't let it put you off, there is still plenty of space with a little kitchenette, dining table, bed settee, bathroom, tv and separate bedroom. There were four of us in a room and we managed fine for the week. For the money it was a lovely hotel and provided us with a relaxing last minute week in the sun before the holidays ended.More

Excellent and recommend this hotel
Travelled to Mallorca on 14th October 2014 from Manchester airport. Family of 4 with kids aged 14 and 13. Excellent value for late deal all inclusive at just over Â£250 each for a week and I see Thomsons are selling for next year closer to Â£600 or I'd be tempted to go back. Might look out for a late deal again but all these good reviews make that less likely! Due to reasonable price was a little bit worried about the standard and its potential clientele but the hotel was excellent and is a four star or thereabouts. Looks like the four main accommodation blocks are older and its been revamped with a swish new reception, pool area, restaurant and spa/entertainment area.
The room was fine for our needs and kept spotlessly clean. My daughter volunteered for the pull out bed from under the sofa and it never looked very comfortable but she never complained and she slept soundly.
The hotel staff were very hard working, professional and courteous especially in the restaurant.
Weather was great which also came as a pleasant surprise. Pool area is good and despite there being a lot of young kids its still a relaxing environment possibly because of the way its designed. We were in the pool often but despite the sunshine it did feel slightly chilly on first dip. There is a really good toddler pool/ slide area and the separated bigger slides kept our teenagers and me entertained. Food was very good for all inclusive but will get familiar after 5 or 6 days. We never attended the welcome meetings, etc and not sure how the Thomson reps were but they seemed to be busy with kids club, etc. A diverse mix of shows each night but we never gave them our full attention, looked like the usual holiday fare. Drinks at the bar always on hand with little to no queues and reasonable quality and good choice of cocktails for all inclusive. Hired a car via Hyper car and this worked out well with good service and recommend online booking for better value and taking out own insurance in advance.
Puerto Pollensa is a lovely, quite sophisticated, resort and the often mentioned sea front walk to town was well used by us. Restaurants in town looked to have a good atmosphere and were very popular but we stuck with all inclusive option and it never disappointed. The beaches within walking distance are small but if you go a bit further afield the beach on south west side of the town is perfect with good facilities.
All in all this was an excellent hotel and resort and exceeded our expectations. Would love to go back.More

Perfect for families!
This hotel is a Thomson family resort and is 100% set up for young families.
We went as a couple and therefore only used it as a base which was fine however the swimming pool areas are like a kids playground and not really places to relax in also there are no other areas at all for adults to chill.
However there is a small beach less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel which was really chilled.
The apartment was really comfortable and the air conditioning comes included so that was a big plus.
Also special mention to Louis on the reception who was really helpful in helping us get to a local football match in Pollensa which we both really enjoyed as we like Spanish football.
If you are a couple then I would possibly look at other options however for a family this is a perfect location. .More
