55 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Returned mid August from Isla Del Aire. We had a brilliant holiday the hotel staff were very helpful rooms cleaned every day but one and towels changed regularly. Could do with a little updating but that did not spoil anything. If you are going self catering there was a fridge (no freezer) microwave, two electric rings and one pan, as the majority were all inclusive I am sure if you wanted extra pans they could be provided. The pool had a brilliant kids section and the main pool for the swimmers and air beds etc. Entertainment was provided by Miguel and his female partner and the small children loved kids disco on a night. The all inclusive food was good if a little repetitive but you wouldn't starve. On one evening we had to return the chicken as this was slightly pink and straight away the whole tray full was taken away. Local beer and wine plus spirits were plentiful and I was a little worried in case people got carried away, never saw anyone who had too much to drink.
Would I go again...doubtful as I like to try somewhere new each year but I would recommend to anyone wanting to visit Punta Prima, different resort on the island next time for me "

Great Apartments, more work on the all inclusive
"Just returned from Punta prima playa. Apartments clean and in good condition but did notice some of the doors to the rooms where getting a bit rusty. Cleaner came most days and we got clean towels most days and beding changed regularly. Pool area nice with loads of sunbeds but not many umbrellas and buy cheap lilos to make it more comfortable to lie on. Reception staff helpful and thomas cook rep brill. This hotel has just changed to all incluive this year, still a few areas to improve on - couple of nights chicken wasnt cooked properly both us and other people noticed. One night the choice was rubbish, more people were having a plate of chips than any other choice and the staff havent got the hang of replacing it as soon as it runs out or been out for a certain time. We reported this to the rep the next morning after the night with very little choice, and he was brilliant- spoke to the hotel straight away and by the evening we found a big improvement- chicken cooked properly, both kitchen and resturant/bar staff keeping an regular eye on the food levels. The rep even came down one night a week later and tried the food himself. Food wasnt labelled but the recpetionist showed us the labels for food she was making up at the time. Even with all of this the food was nice and tasteful.
I dont know why people are saying about the lighthouse closing and children getting bored, as the lighthouse is only the resturant which has one of the 2 bars in it. and for the people saying about the supermarket at the hotel selling out of date food,havent got a clue what they are talking about as there is no supermarket at the hotel, the nearest one is down in the resort.
Think once the get over the inital start doing all inclusive and get use to it will be all perfect, they are taking notice of complaints and doing someting about it."

Fantastic Holiday so impressed!!!
"Just returned for a week at Punta Prima Player. It was our first family holiday abroad and we feel so lucky to have stayed in such a brilliant place. The staff were so friendly. The kids entertainer was fantastic. The whole complex is set out so that you can always see your children, in the pool or when playing football or other games with the entertainer. Safety and secuirty is a very important factor to me and my husband and we felt that this complex ticked all the boxes. The food was absolutely amazing and so much of it - all fresh and not recycled and so much choice. There were 16 main hot dishes let alone salad and other options. Unlimited ice cream and snacks of cakes and chips were readily available. My children loved the food, the pool, and made friends and did not want to leave, nor did we. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a secure, sunny happy holiday and is prepared to put on lots of weight if all inclusive!!!!"

Punta Prima Playa Hotel
"Having just returned from a weeks holiday in the Punta Prima Playa I thought I would let other customers know my thoughts. First of all the apartments are very clean and spacious which was a real treat as we were on an all inclusive deal, the pool area was lovely and ideal for children. The best thing about this hotel is the staff they are so friendly and helpful a special mention to Richard whose entertainment especially for the children was second to none, we met as strangers but after a week we left as friends. The only draw back for us was the food it could have been better but as this hotel is new to all inclusive im sure it will improve as the season progresses. The small resort of Punta Prima is lovely the beach is gorgeous white sand and blue sea older children may be a little bored, there are no loud bars or disco. "

"We have just returned from a great 2 week holiday at the Punta Prima Playa apartments. I was slightly concerned by some of the reviews, but I needn't have been - we had a great time there and would love to go back. The apartment was clean and well equipped. Sheets and towels changed every 3 days. The pool was great for the kids - lots of shallow bits and there was never a fight for sun beds. Snack bar was fine, table tennis/pool available also. The kids club was disappointing. Camille was very lacklustre in organising any events, but the kids made their own fun. Lighthouse bar opposite was open at the weekend. Some great tribute acts, but avoid Kelly Hurst - she is dreadful!! "

Great family holiday
"after reading some of the critical reviews i was a little worried.
i was very pleased with the apartments and they were very clean (3 times in a week the towels were changed).
adequate cooking facilities (not for masterchef cooking)
but a good selection of restaurants at the bottom of the hill across from the beach.
if you are looking for a relaxed quiet family holiday in good apartments with an exellent pool then Punta prima apartments is perfect."

"In october 2009 (kids half term hoilday) we went on a break to punta prima playa. we found out it was the most boring place on earth!!
The hole town was shut apart from 2 supermarkets 1 of them was spar was which was ok and a other which had food out of date.
Back to the apartments the cats, flyes and ants got more attention than the guest " what guest ". the reception area opened at 9am and shut at 5pm which was terrible because the children needed drinks and food. also the reception was closed all day on a sunday which was horrendous!!!
As we were self catering there were no shops opened we had to go on the bus 5miles away for milk and water.
on the monday we wanted to be transferd to the sur menorca as there was no amenities at the apartments on top of that we had to pay 250euros for the next 3 days of are hoildays.
would not advise anybody to book this area (punta prima) for october half term unless you wont to be boared and starve with hunger
WHAT A GHOAST TOWN !!!!!! sur menorca hotel was fantastic"

Lovely family holiday, very quiet, exactly as we like it
"Having read some previous reviews we were quite anxious about our stay and would not have booked these apartments. Thank goodness we didn't read them til it was too late! Although our room was tucked away in a corner and on the ground floor (I would have preferred a balcony) we found them to be basic but sufficiently comfortable and well maintained. I am always concerned with safety around the swimming pool but this one was ideal for our 5 year old who had a fantastic time and our only problem was actually getting him out of it! Paul was always very helpful and we had no complaints whatsoever regarding the standards of the apartments
Punta Prima was beautiful but very quiet. The restaurants although few were all of an excellent standard and we had several lovely meals. Our son quickly picked out his favourite - El Faros - but this was mainly down to the choice of 'after dinner sweets' as they far surpassed the usual lollipops at the other places!
The public play areas in the village and the water park were also very good. Unfortunately as we only stayed a week we could not use as many of the facilities as often as we would have liked
We found the local buses to be very good value if a little crowded. The train to Binibeca was an experience not to be missed. Mahon was a lovely place and the Yellow Boat trip on a catamaran is a must around the harbour
This is only the second time we have been to Spain but would not have any hesitation in returning to Punta Prima. It is an ideal place if you like to spend your holidays relaxing with a little bit of sightseeing. There are also some lovely walks around the village. However, if you prefer nightclubbing, shopping and lots of entertainment - I would give it a miss. But we ALL loved it!!! and hopefully will be returning, sooner rather than later"

A relaxing holiday but very quiet.
"The apartments are well equipped and more than adequate for a relaxing holiday. It is very good for families with young children. The spar supermarket is the better of the two and the best restaurant, suitable for everyone,is Sebastians on the corner in red and white. He is very polite and welcoming and the food and service is superb. We had a lovely week, although it is very, very quiet, but the bus service is very cheap and regular, with a trip to Mahon a must. The beach was smaller than expected and the amount of seaweed accumulated unbelievable, but it was swept clean everyday."

"We have just come back from MENORCA stayin in Punta prima, luckily for us we had heating. the first day, we reaslised it was a ghost town, there was nothing open, so we had to hire a car, as there were no shops open either. we took ourselves to the supermarket in Mao 5 miles away, and got supplies, the lady at he reception, told us that nobody was going to open until May as they thought the brits could not afford to come over, because of the euro.
we had 4 days of rain, and then the sun came out. we saw all of the island which was very beautiful, paddled in the sea and enjoyed the quiet rest.
We did find one chinese restaurant open near Mao, which was lovely.
We will go again, but in season. The apartment was good, but they would not change our sheets or towels, because they don't do them only in season!!

have just returned from a week long stay...
"have just returned from a week long stay at these apartments with my husband, 2 yr old son and my parents. we were happy with the cleanliness of the apartments and we did have a towel/linen change and cleaning of apartment twice during our week.
we were, however, very disappointed with the lack of entertainment but it seems we missed out on alot by not going there till end of september as the lighthouse bar was closed on arrival and none of the few places there are to eat had any entertainment. we also did not see sight of the horse and carriage ride that was mentioned in an earlier review.
we also had the misfortune of bad weather, it rained alot and so we found nothing to amuse ourselves except for the indoor playroom they have for young kids and the pool/air hockey table.
the staff at the complex were friendly and helpful, paul in particular.
punta prima is a very quiet resort - quieter than i expected, but i suspect it isn't as quiet earlier in the year - with only a handful of places to eat and one decent supermarket (spar) as the one next to the punta prima playa is more expensive and sells out of date food - we had out of date yoghurts and my parents had crisps that were 6 months out of date!"
