"This is a fantastic hotel with a beach location stayed for 10 nights room only clean and modern hotel sofa beds in room comfy which kids slept on and beds in main room comfy also reception staff extremely helpful shops and restaurants on door step pool bar offers a variety of drinks and snacks. Massage service offered near loungers on top of pool bar fantastic lovely man and his family offer the service 30 euros for full body massage a quieter area for adults only. We had breakfast morning when flying home was lovely food with a variety of options. You only have to go through a doorway and straight onto beach nice walk to left of beach up to a castle with lovely bar at top and views of surrounding area rock pools for crab hunting to the right along promenade along beach front nice restaurants odd shops along the way with usual holiday stuff street entertainers etc don't go to Chinese directly opposite hotel food poor my daughter ordered chicken in black bean which was tasteless and looked like gravy other customers were also complaining about poor meals kebab shop next to hotel lovely burger king round corner usual stuff if u turn right out of the hotel and then turn left walk straight up a lot quieter and appear to b nicer restaurants steak house etc their was a nice restaurant called Amore Moi as u turn left out of hotel food was fantastic but service extremely poor ordered drinks and was half way through meal and had to reorder again only one waiter for whole restaurant no apology was given just a shrug of the shoulders another English customer came into the restaurant waited five to ten minutes to b served then was told to leave with his wife as unable to be served a few minutes later a Spanish couple came along and were seated and ordered their meal I was absolutely appalled !hence never ate their again. I had two children aged eleven and fourteen could hire quad bikes 13 euros for half an hour to right as u turn out of the hotel usual beach activities banana boat paragliding although quite pricey. fantastic holiday would go back again only complaint with the hotel WiFi best reception at pool bar had to sit on balcony to get a good reception when in the room itself fridge in room not working correctly not keeping cold and my husband is a diabetic on insulin which needs to b kept in fridge had maintenance man look at it but did not make any difference sea view suite rooms are best entertainment fairly poor although we tended to go out in the evening singers I saw were fairly good. Beach front hotel priceless waking up to that view every morning would definitely go back. "

Sa Coma Platja
" I stayed allinclusive.The staff very helpful,food not very appetising as they catered for germans as there were mostly germans in the hotel the food was not labled what it was so it was a guessing game what you got,the entertainment was very poor and it was difficult to understand what was said,the children had to find their own entertainment the only thing was mini disco for them in the evening at 9 00 to 9 30 which i think is very poor as the children look forward to meeting other children in the games which there none,This may have been the last month before they close but that does not mean that all has to stop things should be the same till they close "

Location superb but not a 4 star
"The location of this hotel is great, large flat promenade to beach and short walk to s'illot. The apartments are all sea view and were clean, although not good for self catering as very limited utensils.Take your own travel kettle as you would need to hire one from hotel.Cleaning regime excellent. We were all inclusive and I'm afraid the food was very poor,selection was not good and often the food was cold.Daytime snacks consisted of ham/cheese sandwiches, with access to a toaster if required.Afternoon snacks small cake.Drinks defo watered down. Plenty of sun beds available and pool ok (although could have been cleaned more often). Noise from The Britannia across road was not too bad, the most noise came from the Coma Gran hotel behind it, so pub gets the blame for it. Taxi and Train travel very good for access to calor millor and cala bona (taxi to cala bona 10 euro, train 8euro return for 2 to cala millor) Several good restaurants/bars to eat out and prices reasonable. We would go back again but i think self catering would be our preferred option but eating out for main meals."

This is definitely not a 4* 29th July 2012
"The Sa Coma Platja is situated right next to the beach, and the views are fantastic.On arrival we were told our room wasn't ready, and had to wait an hour. We were self catering and the kitchen area was the smallest we have ever seen. 2 electric rings , one of which didn't heat up. Pans right on top of units, so a chair was needed to reach them.The apartment was basic with poor quality fittings,and we actually went three days without clean towels!The pool was full to capacity every day, so we could cool off, but a swim was out of the question.Towels were on loungers at midnight every night. After a couple of days we went to the beach, and paid 4-60euros per sun lounger every day.Same for a parasol. We booked a trip with our rep, who told us the wrong place to be to be picked up.Consequently we missed the bus. We booked again with another operator and everything was spot on. We normally book 3* but as it was my daughter's birthday ,we thought we would upgrade to 4*. What a waste of money! This accomodation was no better than any 3* we have stayed in."

The Good The Bad and The Ugly!
"This hotel is so lovely in so many ways but has it must be said it does have some downsides and is most definately not a 4 star but a 3:( My wife and I are mid 50's and have just come back from a 2 week stay 10th July 11 at the Sa Coma Platja. The following heads are market out of 10 with a summary at the end. Food: 6/10 (repetative but adequate) Cleanliness: 7/10 (Sundays & Thursdays (No Maid Service: No Clean Sheets / Towels) Amenities: 5/10 (No Gym,Suanna or Jacuzzi as expected from 4 star) Entertainment: 1/10 (No Adult Disco or Adult Music or shows Kids Shows Only) Staff Friendliness 9/10 ( One matilda type waitress who never smiled but the rest of the staff were great) Locality: 10/10 (Fantastic Right by beach) Suitability for Couples with Children: 9/10 (Lively and Noisy) Suitability for Couples without Children: 1/10 (No Adult Entertainment and far too many noisy out of control children from morning till night) :( As you can see due to the fact my wife and I are a mature couple with grown up children this hotel was completely the wrong choice in that respect. If you like lots of small children running around from morning till night go to this Hotel. If you want peace and quite then don't bother. The staff here are worked very hard by the management and all the staff without exception do a great job to cater for all their guests needs but it must be said the Hotel was bursting at the seems when we left and as a result we were very happy to head for the airport after spending 2 weeks at this very busy hotel. I hope this review helps you make an informed choice on weather or not this is the place for you. Basically if you have small children and you want a noisy child environment go here and you will have a great holiday if you want a romantric lovely place for couples go elsewhere. One final point we booked via teletext holidays with a company called broadway travel on a last minute deal booking in flight meals. When confirmation of the holiday came via email no mention of inflight meals so contacted Broadway who confirmed in flight meals had been booked. Upon arrival at the Thompson check in we discovered no in flight meals had been booked! Beware of Broadway Travel Ltd. Steve & Anne From Stafford UK "

"Hotel was nice, clean and airconditioned throughout, rooms were cleaned 5 days out of 7 with fresh towels and bedding. Went S/C as enjoy eating out, so took travel kettle on ealier reviewers advice and bought fresh baguettes but wouldn't dream of actually cooking anything! The pool was also cleaned daily. the sunbeds did have towels over them - even though not allowed - but still never had a problem finding 2/4 together when we wanted to stay at the pool. The beach is really nice so spent most days there - 2 sun loungers and an umbrella did cost 13.5 euros per day though, but was definitely worth having the shade of an umbrella. All entertainment was German, but we don't bother with that anyway so wasn't an issue. Walked into S'illot most nights and ate there, it's nicer because the bars are on the seafront rather than on the main road and its not all English food - saying that we did have a roast dinner in the Irish pub (Kenners/McKenners) which was excellent. Ended our evenings in Flic Flac, a German bar, where we had wonderful cocktails. If I went back to Sa Coma I would stay here again if the Blau Mediterraneo wasn't available because that looked fantastic and had an equally good sea view."

"Hotel was ok, i have stayed in worse and i have stayed in better. Its rated as a 4 **** But it is not a good 3***. The good points are Views where really nice.All rooms have a pool and sea view. The down side is.There is a Bar across from the hotel which is called the Britania Bar. Unfortunately your bedroom backs onto this and if you don't like your late nights and party, Then don't stay here. The hotel is 85% german aswell ...The hotel entertainment is mainly in german language,as the entertainment team speak very little english. Don't get me wrong the holiday was great the kids loved it. I go on holiday to chill have a nice time. German, white ,black ,yellow, i am not bothered everybody is there for the same thing ..A holiday. If you travel with travel republic ..Get a private taxi ..Its worth it..Even though its a little more expensive. You may have to wait for a couple of flights if you are on a shuttle. As the company won't leave till the coach is full .So could have a bit of a holiday in the airport..Which is not good with children or older people. Also which i nearly forgot.If you go SELF CATERING take a travel kettle, pans microwave,toaster, infact take your camping equipment with you HAHA they say its self catering and don't caterer for you ..They will try to get you to go ALL INCLUSIVE. tHEY WILL TRY TO CHARGE FOR s/c equiptment. SOME REALL Y NICE ENGLISH FAMILIES THERE.BUT I HAD TO PUT A UNION JACK TOWEL OUT TO ATRACT THE OTHER ENGLISH FAMILIES. Good side.lots of nice places to eat out and simular prices to u.k Weather was great."

"we have stayed at sa coma platja six times, each time made fantastic friends. The first holiday was in 2002, our girls enjoyed themselves so much we just kept going back. The staff are really lovely here and always welcomed us back. Bart was a dutch entertainer whom really kept all the children entertained he was like the pied piper, they followed him everywhere. Yes can be a little noisy at night but all in all, just relax and join in the fun. Very safe area. probably best for families and couples. Not really a singles resot."

"Me and my husband stayed at this hotel on our honeymoon 2 years ago and got it as a last minute deal. The hotel was gorgeous and right on the beach next to a supermarket. The room was really big with a separate bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen/diner. There was also a balcony with a table and chairs overlooking the beach. There is a large pool but you are a stoneâs throw from the beach so we spent most of the time there. There is a restaurant at the hotel but also lots of restaurants all round the resort so your never short of somewhere to eat, we tended to go to the fish restaurants rather than the British places. The resort itself is very British, so if you like that kind of thing its great but can get a bit boring. There is a pub called the Britannia which is right across from the hotel and is open till about 3am so can get quite rowdy when youâre trying to sleep! There was a receptionist called Carlos who worked at the hotel at night whilst we were there, I donât know if he still works there but he was really helpful and we really liked him and missed him when we came home! We went on 2 trips whilst we were there and both were great. The first was to the waterpark in Magaluf and the second was to the "Pirates" show also in Magaluf. I would recommend both of these trips to anybody. There is also a bus which goes to the safari park throughout the day which I would also recommend, the baboons are hilarious! Other than that there isnât a great deal else to do, as for going out. Iâd say the resort is more for families and kids but it is still a gorgeous place and a nice, relaxing holiday."

"This is a basic sleep and go out hotel, lower end of the scale but you can expect much it was cheap. At the end of the day itâs a place to sleep, cooking facilities were very basic a 2 hob ring and thatâs about it, overcome and adapt I say and we did. Sa Coma I a quietish place but lovely and the beach is fantastic, in general I would go back but itâs a little too relaxed for us. Pub wise the Britannia and Kings head are the main one, Delaneyâs is a good Irish pub but a little too far to walk, food is overpriced and small, the Royal Oak make everyone elseâs meals look small, but saying that the chip' are awful, over cooked most of the time but plenty of them. Entertainment was good most of the time in all 3 places ,except the Britannia the must have the worst Elvis and biggest in the world, he is that bad its funny, you donât know whether to clap or laugh. Tina Turner and the Neil Diamond tribute were fantastic. Tina was very attractive and sexy, one for the fellers, Neil Diamond, sounded just like the real one, he had a great sense of humour, made everyone feel really special, and had a wicked sense of humour. The kingâs head had the biggest shows ,the Beatle's were brill, Robbie Williams was really good, and Delaneyâs had a superb Elvis on and also JP a madness tribute, excellent. We would go back, but thereâs lots of places we have not seen yet. If you go to Sa Coma go to Royal Oak, Atlantic Bar to eat, very good, and Nou Moon Chinese Restaurant excellent. Get your water for the week or fortnight from Lidls really worth the taxi fair back to your hotel etc. Enjoy, hope this is of some help.."

"Our family spent our 3rd year at the Sa Coma Platja in 2005. The holidays we have had here have been the best ever. We found the Cosmos reps helpful whenever we needed them. I have been reading some of the comments made by other holiday makers and I find some of them hard to believe. The Dutch reps Bart and Lyn were brilliant. My eldest daughter was persuaded by Lyn to be part of their reps 'Grease' night and perform the part of a Pink Lady. She took some persuading by Lyn, but in the end she did it and thoroughly enjoyed herself. Lyn went out of her way to help us. My daughter wanted to visit a shop in Cala Millor and Lyn came with us to show us where it was. How many other reps do you know who would do that during their few hours off they get? Our favourite eating place was the Fox and Hounds which is opposite the Caprabo supermarket. The owner Miguel is a lovely person who has made us welcome year after year. We are returning to Sa Coma in 2007 although not to the Sa Coma Platja as the Germans are now in there. We are staying in one of the private apartments next door and will be visiting Miguel again for our tea most nights. Sa Coma is a recommended holiday destination in our household and we are planning to return in 2008. "

"It was the best holiday I have ever been on, it was so enjoyable and I felt so welcome. It is right on the beach and the people were so friendly. There was a great restaurant to eat out at called JJ's and that made the experience very tasty! The food at the hotel was lovely. The kidâs entertainers were ok, Bart was brilliant with the kids but the other one was moody and grumpy! We were really looking forward to coming back to the hotel until we found out that it was being brought by a German company and we were gutted! Overall I would say it was a life changing experience and I wouldnât change it for the world! "
