Hi
Was thinking about going to Santa Ponsa in October for a week. Is the place closed down to any degree ( my partner and I are both in our mid forties so not looking for clubs, just bars, restaurants etc ) and what is the weather like at this time of year. We also cheecked out the Holiday Apartment Centre in SP anyone stayed there ?
Thanks
Wullie

It's the million dollar question wullie, in October, at some point, the weather changes from summer to autumn, and it could be in any of the weeks. We traditionally go in the first week of October and it's normally still scorchio.
Santa Ponsa, like all the other resorts, will start running down during October, mostly will be closed up by November, but early Oct they'll still be plenty open for food and a few drinks at night.
Haven't stayed at that hotel so can't help.

Like Mark, I have been to Mallorca for the last 6 years in October, & weather has been very good. I normally stay in Magaluf, & again like Mark says, there are bars & restaurants closing down after the first & into the second week, so most if not all should be open up until then. But regular SP visitors like Britchick, Chelsearo & Roymelt plus others, would be able to give you an idea of what should still be open during October Wullie, after they have read your thread.

Hopefully we will be going out to SP again in October half term, as mentioned, the weather can still be good. Its quite a nice relaxed month but plenty open.

Dont know much about those apartments though mate.

I'm thinking of going October half term too Ro, although its very late for them breaking up this year My littlun finishes 26 October, so can't go until the next day.
Although things are winding down or closed, there are still quite a few places open all year round, as lots of people live in Santa Ponsa. I have been out of season plenty of times and there is always something to do and if the weather is nice, it's lovely and relaxing.

I didnt realise half term was that late in October!

When we have gone in the past, it is a nice chilled atmosphere, locals winding down for the year.

I thought the flights would be dead cheap too, because its so late in the season, but alas, no. I think i will still end up going though, because I have got things i want to take over. And we might get some lovely sun, i think i have always had nice weather in October
