Santa Ponsa on the Spanish island of Majorca is popular with tourists from all over Europe. Famous for its beautiful beaches, relaxed atmosphere and world-class golf courses, you might get the idea it's exclusive and expensive when, in reality, it's not. Many Santa Ponsa hotels have some incredibly reasonable hotel deals; you just have to know where to look.
Start with a search on hotel booking sites like booking.com and hotels.com. Both sites have a wide variety of Santa Ponsa hotels, and often at prices cheaper than on the hotels' websites themselves.
The Hotel Bahia del Sol is a wonderful Santa Ponsa hotel. Located just a few meters from Santa Ponsa beach, the Hotel Bahia del Sol has 209 rooms, double or twin, and both offer breakfast-only rates and half board.
Rooms are lovely and come with en suite bath, flat screen TV with satellite, safe, mini bar and a private balcony. Rates begin at only £59.52 for a room for one adult and £87.53 for double occupancy. That's at the height of the season too -- from June to September. Later in the year, they're even cheaper.
The Best Western Plaza Santa Ponsa is also just a quick walk to the beach, has its own swimming pool and tennis club, and is only two miles from one of Santa Ponsa's best golf courses.
Guest rooms have ensuite bathroom, satellite TV, air conditioning, a hairdryer and a private balcony. Room rates are cheap at £61.27 a night for single occupancy, which includes a very nice buffet breakfast, and £70.03 for double occupancy.
Like most Spanish hotels, half board is available if you want it. Quoted rates are from June to September and fall slightly thereafter.
