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 in summer.
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.
From 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.

We traveled with our 2 and 3 year old boys. We are regular thomson - firstchoice customers and found this hotel to be something special. Made to feel very welcome from the start to the finish. On the second day it was a little cloudy and the pool was a little cold. Lots of children shivering, but on the hot days the pool was just at the right temp. Would be nice if it was heated on cloudy days. The childrens pool play slides/sculptures are made out of plastic and are much safer than the concrete ones we have found at other hotels, i am a bit over protective! It never seemed crowded, never had trouble getting a sunbed. All inclusive was good, we mostly ate at the pool bar for lunch and restaurant for dinner. Table service on drinks for all inclusive was nice. Room was nice enough for spain. Kept as clean as an operating theater by the cleaners, everyday! Food was good but not as much selection as the larger hotels but catering for 150 rooms is never gonna be the same as 4 or 5 hundredrooms.
Finally, the location is outstanding. Its at the end of the pine walk. I would walk the 75meters to the sea and snorkle most days. It was lovely to walk along the front into town.
Sadly next year the price goes up and staffing goes down with the removal of the creche and most of the kids club. Even with this i would still be tempted to return as really enjoyed this friendly, welcoming hotel.More

More for kids
I stayed here for a week all inclusive. Both myself and my partner had a lovely week but there are a few negatives......
The air conditioning didnt work in our room. Although you can eat as much as you want and you get quite a selection the food is served in a canteen style restaurant and i found the food wasnt hot but just warm. The evenings entertainment was very much geared up to children right up to 9pm. As a couple with no children i found we made use of the free drinks and made our own entertainment. The bar closes at 11.30 and felt it could have stayed open for a bit longer. The pools are beautiful to look at. There are 4 in total, 2 kids pools 1 adult pool with a kids section and a spa pool which is inside but also not heated the same as the outdoor pools.
So although we had a good week we probably wouldnt go back.More

Great holiday for families with young children
We stayed here with our two and a half year old. The rooms were exactly what we needed, the location was great, v near the little beaches and a nice walk into town, the staff were all happy and helpful, and the entertainment and facilities for preschoolers were great. Spa was also nice and I had a wonderful massage and facial which gave great results. Our son stayed in the crÃ¨che one morning and one evening so we could have a romantic 'grown ups' dinner and he had a good time each time. The food in the restaurant is good- lots of choice and well setup for children while still not being too loud or off putting for adults. We were self catering but ended up eating in the restaurant a lot as it suited us and was good value. Overall, highly recommended for families with preschoolers.More
Good holiday stay
Saw this lovely hotel on the Thompson website and my boyfriend and I loved the look of it! Staff were really friendly and the reps were great too. Good was good too but breakfast was questionable on occasion. My only complaint of this hotel would be that the pool was freezing! Jumped in one day to jump right back out and roast in the sun! More
Great Family Resort, BUT with some let downs.
Stayed for a week all inclusive with our 23 month old. Our child really enjoyed the splash pool and playground, the Thompson staff were great in the crÃ¨che and pre school early entertainment - little pups. Big issue though was the smoke. Smoking area is not well placed as it wafts into the entertainment area. Restaurant was geared up to children and the staff were great.
Whilst the accommodation was OK it was hot and noisy. Apparently they turn the air con off. Kept the patio doors open but had to endure the noise from the entertainment. We had asked for a quiet room. They put us in block 4. Thank fully our child can sleep through most things. We waited until the entertainment finished before going to sleep.
The resort itself was great and the small sandy beaches were great. Walk along the pine walk it lovely and interesting with lots to see.
