Hotel Son Matias Beach
34 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Chose this hotel for a weeks stay after a cruise. Great location, spotless, food great. Can see why the older generation come here. Ideal for what we wanted, not recommended for the young ones, although adult only would say over 60 's is more li it. Entertainment appears o be well attended, although not by us. No complaints."

"I have stayed here 3 times, and i have just read a review saying the food was awful, well I am very fussy, and can tell you it is lovely food, the resteraunt is only small, so the mass produce thingy doesnt happen here, it is carfully cooked and presented to a high standard, they allways about checking it, testing with thermometer, ect, its tasty, hot and good quality.|I always say, il just have a light brekfast, but when you see it, you just cannot resist. I like everything about the hotel, my priorities are, clenliness, quality, good food and drink, location & pool area, |Son matias ticked all the boxes. I would say my negative points were, its very busy, so pool gets cramped as its not a massive area, its more of very select hotel. I suggest Son matias stick to the rule of no reserving of sunbeds. Thats all i can think of on a negative point. "

"" Amazing hotel And holiday! Our 2nd visit in 2yrs, Arrived the 26th july stayed for 10 nights and we loved it! The hotel itself continues to be fantastic! there's a good variety of high quality food for both breakfast and evening meal.. Staff are always willing to help and support, The hotel is situated directly next to a beautiful beach and is close to local bars restaraunts and shops, Only negative is on our last day we did'nt fly till late and for some strange reason we wer'nt allowed our evening meal, This silly rule needs to be changed to prevent people from finishing their holiday on a negative.."

Best ever Hotel holiday
"We're just back from the Son Matias Beach hotel.
The hotel is fantastic, the build, decor - everything looks new and clean. The food is certainly the best thing I will remember about my holiday, each night there are at least four different starters, main courses and desserts. The food is very British which I loved, roast beef, fish, chicken and also things like meatballs, pizza, pasta, soups, chips, potatoes, pate and loads of fresh fruit and vegetables.
The hotel is less than 100 metres to the sea and is 5 metres from the beach. It is mostly the over 50s staying at the hotel and the entertainment is designed for this age group.
I would definitely recommend staying here."

"My daughter and me went for a 3 day break in february. The hotel was lovely and the food was amzing so fresh and tasty. The views were outstanding. The only thing I would say is that the hotel is more for over 50's. But all in all what a brilliant stay."

A relaxing time at the hotel run by wonderful staff
"We returned from our weeks break on 26/03/10 after staying at this hotel. The Hotel was fantastic as it was adults only and therefore relaxing and generally quiet. The hotel was overlooking the beach and sea which was a bonus and you could wake up to the sun shining through the curtains and hear the sound of the sea outside.
All the staff were courteous and helpful with english staff who also spoke perfect spanish-so the best of both worlds! The food has been fantastic-all freshly prepared and varied with the odd theme night in the restaurant.
We would definatley go back to this hotel as we felt it has been value for money, a relaxed atmosphere and the staff have left a lasting impression for us.

A Good Hotel
"We stayed at the Son Matias for nearly a month in November and had a great time.
The hotel is a little smaller than the usual ones in Majorca, with just 135 rooms over 9 floors. Itâs position could not be improved uponâ¦.right on the front with a nice flat promenade outside the front door. All rooms have either a full sea view [ room numbers ending 1-6] or side sea view [room numbers 8-14] The full sea view rooms have sun in the early morning and the side sea view rooms have sun till about 3.00pm.
All rooms numbers ending in 7 are corner suits, which looked very nice, with both front & side sea view and are larger and have such thinks as a sofa and separate shower.
Our room was well maintained, with everything working, and looked as though it had been redecorated within the last 12 months or so. We originally asked for a front sea view, but decided to change for a side sea view room to get the afternoon sun, and this was not a problem to the hotel staff, who I have to say were very helpful and friendly.
The hotel does not take children, is 100% occupied by British guests, and consequently had food which suited usâ¦.such as Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pud on Sundays, Porridge as a breakfast choice etc. I know there are always people who would like to be a bit adventurous on holiday as far as food is concerned, but everyone we spoke to said the food choice was great, with something for everyoneâs taste.
The majority of guests at this time of the year are in the 55+ age range, so I am not sure it would appeal to young people, particularly in winter, when most of the outside bars and clubs are all closed.
Again because the hotel is catering for British guests only, the entertainment was also good. At this time of the year we were expecting to be entertained by a man on a piano in the corner! but most nights the acts were highly watch able, usually British singers although we did watch an acrobatic act one night, which was very enjoyable.
There is also lots of daytime activities such as shuffleboard, darts competitions etc for anyone who is interested, and daily quizzes as well as a 4.00pm tea danceâ¦.although none of this is compulsory. The entertainment team of Claire & Danni did an excellent job keeping us all occupied particularly on days when the weather was not too good.
The only thing which we found could be improved upon was the fact that the smokers room, is adjacent to the main lounge and you had to go through the smoking area to get outside to the pool area or the promenade, which none smokers found not very pleasant.
All in all we enjoyed our holiday here, and we would recommend it to others. We will defiantly be going again.

"10 of us have recently returned from a cruise and stay.
On arrival the hotel looked impressive. The hotel was fab.
A special mention must go to Danni and Claire the entertainment duo. They made our holiday, the entertainment was the best that we have ever seen in Majorca hotels.
The position of the hotel is amazing! The food was very tasty. (Back to w.w)
The only negative was that the hotel had a few o.a.p's staying there , they were obviously regulars , that thought they owned the hotel. We had just arrived, jumped in the pool and one of them came over to tell us that we couldn't play with a ball in the pool. WHAT !!! Adult hotel , but no fun !!!!! She carried on to tell me that it was because the o.a.p's were going in to swim .............:( What a laugh
