Hotel Santa Ponsa Park/Pionero  

A central hotel with great entertainment, the Pionero/Santa Ponsa Park has got all corners covered. Two roomy pools offer up a whole cast of water-based activities, and come evening live shows are on the cards. Rooms are nice and spacious, too.

Right in the heart of the seaside town of Santa Ponsa, this complex has got everything on its doorstep. Forget tracking down bus stops and hunting for cabs - the beach, bars, restaurants and shops are all within flip-flopping distance.

But this place has got more than just location on its side - there’s the actual hotel facilities, too. Star billing goes to its impressive entertainment menu. You’ve got a selection of daytime activities like water polo, archery and volleyball, while live shows pick up the baton in the evening. Kids aren’t left out either - they get their own playroom, and kids aged five and over can join in the fun at the hotel’s hobby club.

Then there's a couple of big swimming pools to consider, complete with a kids section, set into a good-sized sun terrace. And there are plenty of sunbeds and thatched parasols out here, too.

Step inside, meanwhile, and you’ll find the bedrooms. They’re light, spacious and simply styled with whitewashed walls and light wood furniture. What’s more, they all come with private balconies.

Great Hotel

Just back from a two week stay at the Pionero 7th 21st October. Could not find fault with this Hotel. Rooms cleaned daily, meals plenty of choice, drinks service and location excellent. Will definitely return at some point next year. Thank you for an excellent holiday.More

Great week holiday break

Having read reports of the Pionero l was a bit worried about staying there,but quite honestly l think some reviewers must have been to a different hotel. We found this hotel to be everything it said on the tin and a lot more, the rooms and entertainment were all great no complaints at all,the food was just as good as some of the buffets on 4/5 star cruise ships we have been on with the added benefit of free drinks and the price. Excellent value. Will certainly recommend this hotel and resort.More

A last minute treat!!

We visited this hotel for 4 nights, 13-16 October 2014. My wife and I are both in our sixties. We found the hotel very easy to find and in a very handy position for the beach and restaurants. The time by hire car from the airport was just over 20 minutes. All staff that we encountered were very friendly and efficient. The breakfast choice was very good indeed with a very wide choice to suite all tastes. The lunch was a little repetitive with primarily one choice being changed daily, there was ALLWAYS chips though. Evening meal had a good selection. The outside snack bar was available most of the time with the regular Burgers, Hot dogs and Piza. The bars were busy but very efficient, a little disappointed that you still had to have your drinks in plastic up until 1900 Hrs even if you were sat in the interior lounge . The entertainment was chalk and cheese, if it was the animation team it was vey poor, if it was professional acts it was very good. The hotel adjoins a sister hotel next door that you can use the facilities, however they operate a strange all inclusive policy. Different coloured bands allow you to get drinks in your assigned hotel but not the other, that is unless you purchase a black band for 5 Euro per day that allows you to obtain your drinks at either hotel, all sorts of different bands being worn by people sitting next to one another, very strange. The hotel room was light and airy and well maintained, the corridor carpet on the second floor showed signs of thousands of revellers tramping across though. All in all a very pleasant stay.More

A nice break for a week. Flew from East Midlands mom and daughter

We booked a last minute via Travel Zoo. All the documents arrived within a couple of days. We booked the transfer and it was a long time to get to the hotel. The entertainment team worked really hard all week and although I didn't participate, my daughter did. Yes the pool is cold, but who wants it hot! The bingo was ok and just a line and full house. Enough for me. The children's entertainment kept them amused. We had a nice room on the 5th floor. Towels were changed every day. The food was ok, but I have to say going all inclusive doesn't mean you have to eat there all the time. It's for your convenience. I enjoyed the glass or even carafe of red wine both at lunch and evening. We were upgraded to a black band and it gave us extras such as the free safe and getting drinks from both bars. The area is lovely and we had the added luck of fab weather. We asked for extra pillows and these arrived. Yes reception staff not too helpful but the lady who was behind the bar most of the week always had a friendly smile and very helpful. I am not sure what people expect from their holidays. I agree it is not our 4 star, but please just go and enjoy yourself and make the best. I have been in far worse hotels over the last 40 years and until recently had three holidays a year. Would we go back. Yes. We had a nice evening out at Fat Sams. I also had fish every day which I rarely eat at home.More

Beautiful, peaceful Globales

Lovely surroundings for a hotel twinned with another next door with two pools. Warm welcome @ reception. Lovely room. Very clean & spacious. Got a toiletry welcome pack. Good air-conditioning. Went for lunch soon after arriving & greeted in restaurant by Sebastian, excellent restaurant manager. Straight away was seen by a beautiful & friendly waitress,Sylvia, who offered me a caraffe of wine. She seemed to have a smile all the time & happy what she was doing in her job. Excellent choice of food - fish, meats, pasta, paella, salads. This even continued into the eveing meals where choice of food was excellent again with various dishes to choose from & the same with breakfast for continental or cooked meals. After meal went for sunbathe round the pool then went for walk around local area to familiarize myself with sourrounding town. This has beautiful beaches & lovely bars. Went back to hotel to get ready for evening meal & ready for evening entertainment. Something different every night which had a wonderful animation team that kept you interested with bingo & shows. There were dancing acts, singing acts, even the team got involved & i got involved myself by being in one show plus quiz night & game show night plus dancing to music nights. They also got kids involved which was fantastic. Bar staff tried to keep you flowing with drinks even though there were long queues as it was busy every night. During the day entertainment team of Regina,Richard,Marco,Sara,Martina,Simone & Cindy kept you entertained with Darts,Pool,Shollen,French Bowls,Table Tennis & dancing, plus free for all games for all ages. So many people got involved. Sometimes during day male staff behind bar could've been more attentive or smiled more but at least we got our drinks in the end!! Overall it was a friendly warm hotel which had some lovely decor features inside for communal areas. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves of all ages & this made for a pleasant stay where everybody joined in.More
