Aparthotel Playa Mar  

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.

Thomson Kids' Club May - Oct

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.

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.

Excellent for children

Just arrived back from a week at the Playa Mar. This is a fantastic hotel for families, there is plenty to do for children they will never be bored! The reps are fab they all are genuinely asking if you are ok if you are enjoying yourself.. They all go out of there way to make you feel comfortable. The hotel apartments are adequate, the kitchen area is very small would not like to be self catering! We stayed all inclusive and found the food was good. Plenty to choose from, hot and the themed nights were good too. The entertainment team were good and the acts on a night were good also. The only 2 points I would make were a baby changing table is very much needed up near the entertainment area and the Thompson fm during the a day by the pool was a little too loud and much at times. We have been to Puerto pollensa before and again found the resort beautiful a trip to Osteria N15 restaurant for a meal is a must its fabulous food and in a perfect setting. However overall excellent value for money and a great resort. Would definitely return.More

Great for kids not for couples

Me and my husband have just returned from a week self catering here. The one bed apartment was a good size and very clean. The pool area was nice but most of it is set up for kids, we had one day by the pool and that was enough, no quiet space for adults and very few brollies! The first bit of beach is very close, less than a 5 min walk, just 9 sets of sunbeds so no over crowding, gently slope into the lovely calm water (it's 12.50 euros per day for 2 beds and a brolly). The whole of the hotel/apartments were very clean and nicely done up. It is a good 25-30 slow stroll into the resort centre, although the walk is very pleasant, ladies forget any sort of heel it is too uneven. All in all this is a great place for families especially if you are all inclusive. For couples it's too noisy and for self-catering too far from the resort centre.More

great family holiday, beautiful resort, friendly hotel

We have recently returned from a two week stay at Playa Mar and I was keen to share our experience as before we left some of the trip advisor comments I had read had concerned me. There is some truth in the statements that the rooms are tired and the pool is chaotic with children with water guns, however the rooms had excellent facilities, were clean and very little time was spent in them as theres loads to do. The pool could be noisy but it is a family resort and unfortunately that's family life, no one was disrespectful of each other and every one was having fun. The thing that made this holiday for me was the staff! Everyone looked like they enjoyed their work, reception were extremely knowledgeable and helpful and the restaurant team amazing. The food was good but a little restrictive as I don't eat fish or seafood and would have loved a non fishy paella. I also am trying to lose weight so less dressings in the salads would have been good but that is more about me, than the quality. Thomsons staff were all friendly and helpful and the entertainment team coped well with the cross section of age ranges they needed to deal with from tots thru to adults. Staff that made are stay especially memorable are; Angie, Zolo, Leo, Viktoria and Fatima they genuinely care that you are enjoying your stay and as such, make a real effort to welcome you and accommodate any assistance you may need, but as I mentioned everyone was great! Thanks for an enjoyable time we will be back!More

Amazing location and experience for the price

Family hotel with lovely staff and great pools. Located next to the pine walk with a ~ 20 minute walk to town. Buggy is a must if you want to walk into town. Costs around five euro for a taxi. Rooms are reasonably well equipped for breakfast and lunch. The entertainment is family orientated and that seemed to suit the majority of the clientèle. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. There is an on-site supermarket which I would equate to a Sainsburys or price. Cleaners are great and the resort is fantastic. The town itself is stunning and does not have a Brit's abroad feel (but is still comfortable). We would go again.More

James T, Knutsford, United Kingdom

highly recommended.

Stayed here the first 2 weeks of September, the facilities are great for the kids. the entertainment goes on until 10.30 at night, Ask for an apartment facing away from the pool if your little ones go to bed before then. the bar is expensive for drinks. 3.40e for a large beer, which is about 1 euro dearer than down town! the walk to town pushing a buggy is about 20 mins on pine walk. its a lovely stroll in the evening, and only 5e in a taxi back. the beach is 2 mins walk away. this is the nicest place we've stayed for years...would return again....More
