The pool area was clean, including a small bar and there were plenty of sunbeds
This complex is ideal if you are here to party. It is situated at the centre of all the action. Close to the beach. It is very noisy all night long and into the morning. All the pubs, clubs and cafes are within staggering distance.
DO NOT CONSIDER if you want to go to bed early and sleep.
The pool was nice and there wasn't usually a problem with getting sun loungers....
There was no inhouse entertainment but it didnt matter as there was a bar right next door which put on a show every night .. i think it was called strings.
Although up town was better for younger people as this tended to get slightly familar !
Not much contact with hotel staff during our stay..
No food was served within the hotel while we were there again this didn;t matter as loads of nice places just seconds from the apts.
overall really nice apartments perfect for young group holidays who want to be very close to everything and go out most nights

It was clean but shabbby, towels changed evey other day but bed linen not changed for the whole week.
None of the basic self catering appliances (kettle and toaster) were in the rooms these all had to be hired as did the fans as there is no air con.
Right in the heart of the bars and restuarants serving good food. was fairly quiet due to the time of year, there were a few noisy youngters so I would imagine it's not a good place for families in the high season. Pool was fine but no entertainment, the bar within the block was closed.
Jackie is great she runs the the pool bar and serves great food, we had a few drinks and laughs with her.
Overall Santa Ponsa not too bad but wouldnt go to Sun Beach again

We were moved on arrival from our chosen hotel to this one and initially were very pleased as the location is perfect for beach and night life, however rooms are stifling, and if you have the windows open at night you will not get to sleep until after 6am when the noisy bars finish. Did not visit the pool on site as it was surrounded daily by young lads drinking and larking around and with 2 youngsters it was not ideal as their language was choice. Visited the Watering Hole instead which had a great pool and staff and meals were excellent value. Would only revisit out of season as resort is excellent.

It is a PARTY hotel for 18-25 year olds that NEVER sleep during the night only during the day. The bedroom is set at the back in a claustrophobic room with no air conditioning right next to the corridor with a tiny window with bars on it. The first night we arrived we were shattered from traveling and needed sleep. There was no chance of that. All you could hear was a party going with very very loud techno music on in one room. Then there was the constant door bell ringing and banging by drunken idiots. Then came the arguing and shouting. And finally the girls crying and screaming. We didn't sleep at all and felt wrecked. Our good neighbour said he thought it was like being in Beirut! We thought so too.
The sheets were filthy, ripped and even had lipstick on them to show that they were not washed. The towels were the same. There was vomit on the paths to the stairwells from the all night partying from the yobs.
We were on the 6th floor so we thought the only solution to get any sleep at all was to physically move the beds from the bedroom to the front room and leave the sliding doors open to get some air. It was better not to hear the awful corridor noise. But, you then had the extremely loud bar noise underneath the hotel.
One morning around 6 am I was half-asleep and someone walked right past me! I thought it was my husband but I looked over and he & my son were still in bed! Someone was in the room. I sceamed to my husband and he tried to chase the man out but my husband was half-asleep and didn't catch him. The man got out the front door and ran down all the stairs. He was running from the police because we were told he had hit a woman at one of the bars. A few days later they had eventually caught him.
We reported it to the staff at the hotel and the man at the desk just said, "ugh..idiots! I hate this season! So many idiots in this hotel!" The staff just looked utterly fed up as were we. You had to take 2 separate lifts just to get up to our room. Big huge giant cockroaches adorned the stairwells.
Bullies surrounded the pool with loud techno music so you could not even go to the pool. I watched one guy lift someone else's child in the air really high and then dropped him crying into the pool fully clothed. He was so upset and frightened. I called security which is a total joke. It is only one guy who does nothing at all.
A family with a disabled little girl in a wheelchair had to move three times because of all the lifts and stairs and noise that was upsetting the child. It was so sad.
The resort of Santa Ponsa is lovely though but very very Irish and Scottish and I would go back but to a different hotel on the other side of the resort. The best bar for families is Bar Code 7 with terrific entertainment every night. The beach is gorgeous but do NOT BUY WATERMELON OR SOFT DRINKS ON THE BEACH. They conned us out of

Really clean rooms with excellent maid service, spacious, although could have done with a toaster.
The hotel itself could do with a revamp broken beds and showers around the pool not good to say its the beginning of the season.
Beware don't book this hotel if you have kids. Great location for singles.

I can only sum up the Sun Beach Apts with one word - KIP. Pool was filthy, about 50 sunbeds out of 70 were broken, rooms were INFESTED with cockroaches/ants, staff weren't helpful at ALL in trying to get rid of them. Couldn't use the plates or anything because of them, as a result we had to eat out every night. We asked to be moved after only 8 hours - we were woken at half past 3 in the morning by an all-our WAR outside in the complex, I was ashamed to call myself Irish after the way they carried on. Couldn't walk to our apartment from the lifts because of people throwing plates/glasses/bottles etc. I'm 20 and went with 4 other girls, and was looking for a lively holiday but when there are apartment parties going on at 6 in the morning, it gets a bit too much, finding used condoms on your balcony in the morning is fairly disgusting. I felt TERRIBLE for the families with kids that were there, they were literally crying to come home. We complained to the receptionist (who is probably the rudist woman on the planet) and our rep about the parties going on into the early hours and her answer was 'what do you want me to do about it?' Great assistance, I have to say.
The location is bang in the centre of Santa Ponsa, you can literally roll out of bed and onto the beach, so no complaints there. I've stayed in Santa Ponsa before and had a fab time, much prefer the Verdemar. PLEASE PLEASE don't stay at the Sun Beach, the place needs to be burnt down or something, it's a dive.
