The food was cooked nicely, but it was the same in the evening as we had at lunch time.
There is no air conditioning in the rooms. We had a ground floor room, which we were grateful for, until the evening as it was so noisy. The rooms were cleaned every day with towels changed whenever requested.
The bar closes at 10pm on the dot, but people stayed on until sometimes 2am. There was only one bar open, 10am to 10pm. They were very short staffed. The bar man served when he wasn't busy on reception, the dining room staff cleaned the lounge. But they were happy and polite.
There was no entertainment at all. I found it a very boring week. My husband said he enjoyed the peace.
If you walk into Sa Coma go to JJs restaurant, really good food at very good prices. Tell Eddie (Fat Barman with loud shirts) that Yvonne and Shirl sent you.

There are two pools with plenty of seats and loungers. There is a poolside bar at one of the pools, this particular pool attracted the children as it has a small bridge over it and is quite pleasant. The 2nd pool is very basic, but lovely, and we spent most of the time in there as it was virtually empty all the time.
There is a games room with pool tables, air hockey and a few arcade games.
The restaurant serves from 8am until 10am for breakfast, the breakfast had cereal and croissants which were fine, but then it was more continental, with cheese, meat and bread. The breakfast did not vary throughout our stay. The evening meals were served from 6pm until 8pm, and varied each night, paella, fish, chicken were the options then you would have salad and pasta every night also. It was very much a 'canteen' rather than a restaurant, with you having to clear away your scraps and dishes when you had finished. One tip: The restaurant get very busy, and there is one lady who will come to take your drinks order, as it is buffet style, you are more than likely to have got your food and eaten it before she even gets around to serving you (not her fault, and she is very pleasant), but you can go into the bar yourself buy a drink first, then take it into the restaurant, so that you can have a drink actually with your meal and not five minutes after you've finished.
We did actually eat out on about three occasions during the week for dinner, and almost every day for breakfast, however the difference in cost between half board and self catering was only about

My daughter and 2 year old son came for the 2nd week and also had no complaints, enjoying their stay at the Playamar.
We eat out every night, so the sparse cooking facilities did not bother us (I recommend a travel kettle).
All in all excellent value for what is one of the cheaper places to stay on the island.
We have booked to return in September, having had such a good time in June.

We knew we were getting a cheap deal and we weren't shocked.
The location is good, away from all the noise, but close enough to be near either S'Illot & Sa Coma, and we spent most of our time in S'Illot as it wasn't as crowded.
The food was European - I eat anything, so I didn't mind, but the family weren't too impressed.
The entertainment was basic.
The pools were good for the kids.
I would go back for the price we paid.
As long as you go and have pre conceptions about it, then you'll enjoy it.
