Palmanova or Santa Ponsa

We are a couple in our 50s but like a lively resort with late night bars/entertainment. We loved Santa Ponsa this year and contemplating returning but on other hand prefer to try a different resort. What time do bars close in Palmanova and what time does their entertainment finish please. We would be going in September.

I saw your post about Alcudia and thought then that Palma Nova would be a better choice for you . I like Santa Ponsa but think Palma Nova has a bit more . Nightlife is good without being too wild and I'm sure you could find some bars that go on well into the night . September is a great time to go .

It's nothing like Magaluf . Great for couples , even older couples : ) . Thought you would have had a look while you were in Santa Ponsa .

Whilst a lot of the more lively bars in PN stay open until 4 am, the music - externally anyway - ends at midnight due to local noise curfew laws.

Great middle range apartments are Playa C'as Saboners, although they are re-opening next year as a 4 star after an extensive refurb over this winter, so don't know if the prices will still be middle range.

Thank you very helpful and like look of Playa C'as Saboners apartments, think we will give Palmanova a try. What is weather like end of Sept / beginning of Oct? Is everything still open then? Love tripadvisor so helpful.

Kev, we didn't have a car in Santa Ponsa and love walking so explored on foot, Paguera, into hills, marina etc.

hi Julie, we got back last night from Ca's Saboners, apts were excellent value for money, weather was fantastic, plenty of places still open to eat and drink, we couldn't get round them all, not for the want of trying either haha, was our 1st time here but certainly wont be the last!!!

M2S fingers crossed the prices don't escalate after the refurb!!!! noticed there was work going on at one apartment over the weekend

Toffeelady, if you know your dates for next year, drop Rebecca off reception an email and you can reserve *now*, upgraded apartments for next year at this years prices. Only until the end of this month though.
