Palma nova or Santa Ponsa

We are a couple in our 40’s looking for a late September/October 2019 holiday

Been looking at Santa Ponsa but not sure if palma nova be more suitable for us

We like a lazy day by the pool, a nice walk along the beach, we like to eat nice food in nice restaurants, a cocktail bar & a bit of nightlife but not clubs, we like to meet people, watch the world go by and a lil bit o crazy sometimes

Been looking at Sol lunamar apartments - palma nova or Globales Verdemar - Santa Ponsa

Its so hard picking a holiday, any help & advice will be very much appreciated

Palma nova everytime, been through to santa ponsa a couple of times but didn’t like the layout and found it a little dirty and rundown, Palma nova is a much nicer resort with much more to do

Palma nova is more picturesque and cleaner than Santa ponsa. Been to both palma nova was more family orientated and nicer and Santa ponsa was a bit more full on and a bit takier/dirty but I enjoyed both for different reasons. The ca saboners are great apartments also Rosa Del mar in palma nova. Plenty lovely bars/ cocktails bars and grills on the front usual British bars too. Try godfathers or zen lounge

Palma nova any day, Weve been coming years and tried santa ponsa one year and wasnt impressed. Just returned from Lunamar, been 3 times, twice beggining of october, lovely time to go. Try pricing lunamar direct through Melia hotels, a lot cheaper, then book flights and transferes separate.

Another vote for Palma Nova. Having stayed in both resorts we much prefer Palma Nova. We are already booked up to stay there twice next year!

Probably agree with Palma Nova but I'm sure you would enjoy Santa Ponsa as well . Decent choice of accommodation in both places as well .

Agree with the majority. Been to Palma Nova 6 times and Santa Ponsa the once, would not rush to go back, a lot of the SP area has a commercial/residential business feel. On the other hand PN feels totally like a holiday resort. If you are packaging your own deal best price for both are on their own websites. Melia for Sol , Globales for other.

have a look at The Senses Hotel Palma Nova adult only hotel - we've just returned from a 5 night stay! lovely.

Looking already to book again.

We like similar things to you, and are a similar age...definitely worth having a look, we had a sea-view privilege room - use of the roof top pool and lounge area - although all pool area's were totally lovely, really clean and well maintained, we were B&B - breakfast great, loads of choice. Handy Spar shop couple of doors down for wine,water and beer.:)

Been to both.

Santa Ponsa is a little livelier.
