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.

Arrived Playa Mar, greeted with glass cava, kids got juice/sweets..nice touch..Stayed self catering basis, could not fault hotel, very clean, fresh bed linen/towels daily..pool great for kids, never got bored of it, even when pool freezing!! Hotel entertainment, great for kids. The reps do work hard, always something going on. Ate at pool bar few days, very large portions, good value. The port not too far, either brisk 20 min walk or few mins taxi ride for 5 euros. Would definitely recommend and come back again. More
ONE OF THE BEST HOTELS WE HAVE STAYED AT
The three of us stayed at the playa mar hotel and we were more than happy.
Nothing was to much trouble,the towels were changed every day and the rooms were very clean.
The staff were very helpful and the food was good,the entertainment was aimed more at the kids than the adults but it i9s a family resort and was to be expected,but saying that the entertainment was still goo
The pool was fine and plenty of sunbeds.
All in all a very good hotel,we would go back again.More

Great Family Holiday
We've just come back from a lovely week at the Playa Mar, helped in no small part by the sun shining all week!
I can only really say positive things from what we experienced at the hotel so I'll go through them one by one.
Firstly, the staff are absolutely lovely - both within the hotel itself and the actual Thomson's team. We were travelling with two young daughters (aged 3 and 3 months) and the hotel was perfect for them. My eldest didn't really do any Kids Club stuff during the day and we didn't use the creche for my youngest so can't comment on them but she really enjoyed the kids entertainment in the evening.
The pool is the major selling point of the hotel for families with kids - the slides are great, it's clean and we never had any issue at all with getting sunbeds - the hotel have clearly done well to sort out previous issues as I didn't see any towels at all on sunbeds before around 9:30am and even after that it was easy to find one.
The rooms themselves are fine too - not massive but certainly functional. The kitchen is a bit of a squeeze but we managed fine in a one bedroomed apartment. The room was cleaned daily and overall the hotel is spotless.
Can't say too much about the food - we had breakfast a couple of mornings in the restaurant which was OK but we ate out at other times.
One of the main things that struck me was that the hotel wasn't too 'in your face' with screaming kids - yes, there were loads of kids there (ideal for us as my daughter made a couple of good friends) but it was never ridiculously raucous.
I have to laugh at some of the comments on here comparing it to Butlins - honestly, it's not - it's a lovely hotel in a beautiful resort (Puerto Pollensa is fantastic). Would definitely go back and left with great memories.More

we stayed here end of September into October .. I stayed there with my son who is 16 and my parents who are pensioners and I must say this hotel had it all , the rooms where clean and tidy and fresh towels everyday. The pools where brilliant for all ages.. The staff were magnificent couldn't do enough for you, always smiling and having fun with you. The bar staff work very hard and long hours and still smiling at the end of the day. The entertainment team were brilliant, they made are stay very pleasant, always had time to talk to you and help you I when you needed them..
We didn't venture out of the hotel as we didn't feel the need to as it had everything there you needed..
The food was fantastic couldn't fault it at all and the restaurant staff was very pleasant and helpful.. The variety of food was amazing and very tasty and always went for seconds ð. Drinks with your meals too was a fab touch..
I will definitely be returning and my parents will be too.
We really couldn't of asked for a better weeks holiday.
Well done staff at playa marMore
arrived at hotel late we nearly missed evening meal due to prob with key card which was sorted fairly quickly. pools are lovely but freezeing. room was lovely and clean cleaning ladies worked hard across the hotel. hotel food was very bland at times. restaurant staff were lovely very pleasant. thomson staff entertainment was good for the young ones. but when it came to adult entertainment by the staff it was pretty bad to say the least. if they had a mike in there hand they spoke to adults like we were all 5 and under. other entertainment was not to. bad. if your all inclusive trying to get a barmens attention to get a drink can be a nightmare unless your self catering and tipping the barmen. there were lots of comments by guests made about this. lovely 20/30 min along the pine walk is not to be missed, lots of small beaches for the youngsters.More
