You get a really big pool and a children’s splash park at the family-favourite Aparthotel Playa Mar.
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.
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. This hotel will no longer be a Family Resort from May 2016. But don’t worry, it’ll still offer family-friendly holidays with Thomson Kids’ Clubs.

Thomson Kids' Club May to October 2015
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers two hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least three 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 three 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 two of them on duty at all times.
It’s designed like a cloverleaf with one leaf set aside for toddlers, and edged by sun terraces laden with loungers and palms.
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.

Loved this family hotel!
Just before our first holiday abroad with my baby daughter I was slightly nervous, not knowing what the facilities would be like or how family friendly the hotel would be, but Playa Mar was so wonderful we are already looking at booking again! I loved peurto pollensa; we made the twenty minute walk into the centre every day along the beach front with my daughter, what a lovely way to spend your mornings. The sea was very calm and clear so again brilliant for little ones. The pool area was great for little ones with lots to keep them amused, us adults even had a little go on some of the water slides. The rooms look a tad dated, but were very clean, and my husband who struggles in hotel beds normally slept well every night in our comfy bed. The staff at the hotel were all friendly, whatever you asked they were happy to help and the Thomson staff were always working hard. We couldn't speak more highly of this hotel for families. Thank you Playa Mar for a wonderful first holiday abroad with our daughter. More
We recently stayed at the playa mar resort and we are so happy we chose to have our holiday there. The room we had was clean and tidy with everything you needed. The kitchenette was quite small but we didn't mind as we were all inclusive and ate in the restaurant every night. The restaurant was a buffet style dining menu which had themed nights like Asian and Mexican. There was plenty of food to choose from and always had fresh fruit and salad available. The food was always nice and we never left there feeling like hungry, that's for sure! The staff were all really friendly and really can't thank them enough for how hard they worked and how welcome they made us feel. The bar staff were also great like this. The entertainment throughout the day was hosted by the Thompson team. A team of young and very enthusiastic girls and guys who worked tirelessly to get people involved in the daily activities and sports events as well as the kids club and the adult entertainment in the evening. My personal favourite things to do were the water polo which I came away with winning 5 and losing just 1 and also the 'beat the reps' day where it's a big competition between the reps and guests in various activities around the pool area. My hat goes off to "Crazy Chris", "Nutty Naomi" and the rest of the team for doing such a great job day in, day out! The holiday would not have been the same without you guys and you really all deserve a lot more money for the work you all put in! Can't fault my time there at all and I will definitely be returning again at some point as it's also a beautiful part of the world ð More
Fantastic hotel for young families .
Took my toddler of twenty months for his first holiday and I have got to say it was fabulous for young children. He loved the splash pools and the childrens play area and he couldn't wait to finish his meals to go and look at the fish in the ornamental pools . The staff couldn't do enough for you and the grounds are well kept. The rooms were a tad dated but safe and the bed was large and so comfortable that I have come home and want to update ours. I would recommend to anyone with young children . We had a quiet room at the rear of the hotel , more noise would be heard from the pool facing rooms. I did request this due to the age of my little one.More

Have returned today from a enjoyable stay at the Playa Mar, Puerto Pollenca. It was our first visit to the hotel with our two daughters (2 1/2 & 10 months). Room - We had booked a family apartment and got pretty much that. One reasonable sized bedroom with double bed, a living room with sofa bed, very small kitchen area and a good size bathroom. From poking my head around other doors all the apartments seem to be roughly the same. Room also had attached balcony but being nervous with the little ones it was off limits for them. The room was clean and well equipped. It was cleaned twice in our week stay and towels were changed every 2 days. Hotel - Modern looking, great pool area, attached spa and multiple children's areas including a playground, a crÃ¨che for the little one and a 'drop in area' for the older one. Hotel also included a large entertainment area theatre and large restaurant. All in all exactly what you would expect of a 'all inclusive resort'. Staff - Really excellent. Special shouts outs to Carlina and Sebastian who couldn't have done more for us. Plenty of Thomson holiday reps and kids team members are always present at the hotel. We used the crÃ¨che on a couple of occasions and the staff there seemed really good. My little girl had a great time. Location - About a 15 minute walk from Puerto Pollenca, right down the far end (as tend) of the town. Nearest beach is only a few minutes walk but is very small. To get to the main beach you have to walk along the seafront on a 'boardwalk' into town. Beautiful and large sandy beaches await you there. Food - We were self catering as we prefer to sample local cuisines as much as possible, that said we ate dinner twice and breakfast once at the hotel restaurant. Everyone (self catering paying to use, half board and all inclusive) have a large buffet selection. As I understand on certain nights they theme the food. Food was OK. Nothing really stood out, but nothing was really bad. In our opinion the restaurants in town were much better. Entertainment - The Thomson reps do a great job everyday and night playing games by the pool (water polo, table tennis tournaments, pub quiz etc) and at night in the theatre area (Little Pups for toddlers, then Kennel Club for kids followed by a 'guest' performer - magic, circus etc). Some of it is a little hit or miss but you can't fault there enthusiasm. Pros - Quiet local area, seemed very safe both at day and night. Great pool for adults and children. Good range of excursions available. Everything you need is at hotel- it is possible to spend the whole week and never leave! Cons - Loud pool area, constant playing of music and the reps on microphones. A far walk from town, which whilst a beautiful walk, is not insignificant. Last hotel to be dropped off on transfer, first to be picked up on excursions meaning you then spend the next hour picking up all the other hotels after (can add a good hour to any trip either way). Overall - A good stay. Would I recommend? Yes. Would I stay there again? Probably not....but then we don't regularly return to the same hotels or resorts. If you have a family, enjoy good pools and don't mind a lively pool area, then you aren't going to do much better in this area.More

mould beware noise bad no way 4 star lucky if 3
read reviews before i went sounded ok got there was average but never a 4 star hotel,inside rooms maybe hotel its self is, but rooms are not that good as one day a smelt mold around room so i decided to investigate and found draws in tv unit and room had mold all over them so i decided to tell hotel, and they said they would sort so we went out for tea. When we came back they never did anything about it so told them again through rep this time and they said they would tell them to remove it so was happy about that until i went back and found they had swiped down with a lemon smell which lasted 2 min then came back, was unhappy as the spores from mold can be bad for kids and adults. we was in 304 block 3 and if you want peace this is not the place to be! noisy ant the word never heard nothing like it. Apart from that the hotel did have some good bits too which was the cleaners did the floor towels sheets every day and the hotel does have a great spa and a clean swimming pool and free wifi please note bad kitchen rotten to core.also a little note for family's this little walk to town pollencia is longer than 15min, and nothing around hotel for miles.all in all please be careful looks the part but rooms are tired and mold is not a great selling point!More
