“Can't fault it , Great value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We originally chose this hotel as it was a 'Hi Hotel'. Me and my wife went for a weeks break in Alcudia in Oct 2010 and had a great time in another 'Hi' hotel.We wanted somewhere different but searched and found the Palma Nova Hotel.We travelled in Oct 2011 and wasn't dissapointed.
The Hotel itself is fine.Tidy,spacious and ideally located.It has a large cabaret room, but viewing the stage is a little obstructed by pillars etc.It has a good poolside bar and fairly large pool with plenty of sunbeds (not sure how you'll fair in summer)
Don't listen to bad reviews on here 'slating' the food.It is tremendous.Loads of choice,with snacks throughout the day.Drinks choice are good too,San Miguel on draught,descent wine (red & white) spirits okay and no queues (October don't forget.)
Entertainment is brilliant,fantastic throughout the day. Starts at 11.00 with a Quiz and continued throughout the day with 'killer pool', table tennis tournaments,crazy golf comps,darts,hoopla and loads more.Champagne and certificates for winners.Three lovely reps who are helpful, friendly and very funny.It seems to be the same type of people who put them selves up for the games, but good on em! YOURE ON YOUR HOLS, ENJOY ! you get to know everyone and have a great time and meet new friends (we did)
As i've mentioned the location is superb.20 mins from airport to hotel and the hotel its self is just 5 mins walk to the main strip/shops.The best way to find it is to leave by the gate at the far side of the pool and turn left.Turn right past the crazy golf course(outstanding but expensive,with waterfalls ets) and you'll find yourself on the main road with the beach opposite.
Turn right for Magaluf, a nice walk, keeping the beaches on your left or through the shops it takes about 45 mins but a lovely stroll.Loads of shops and bars and great nightlife.Palma Nova is a lot more family orientated than Magaluf.
Brill time and would not hesitate in returning.

Room Tip: If you want an early night avoid rooms above the bar.Then again if you want an early night...go to M...

Flew to Palma Nova from Aberdeen, which is a big bonus as we live in the Grampain area.

Transfer time on the coach was only 25 minutes as we were the first drop off.
Check in was fast and receptionist was very nice and helpfull. Our room was on the 5th floor (which I had requested) right at the end, I think it was 508. Room was nice with 2 single beds pushed together (which was fine) 2 wardrobes a desk and added bonus of a 2 seater soffa (my in-laws did not have that in there room!) Balcony had the norm table and 2 chairs and a very nice veiw of the pool and the sea.

I do not understand anyone who has moaned about the food. For breakfast there was the usual cereal, fruit, yogurt, meats, cheese bread/toast and then the cooked food which was sausages (proper ones, not the hot dog kind) bacon, fried eggs, scrambled eggs and beans. I might have forgot something but that is the most of it. There is also a machine to make tea, coffee ect.
Lunch and evening meals always had meat/pork, fish and chicken, tatties, chips and veg. ther was also fruit and puddings too. There was more than enough to eat and the food was topped up all the time, there was also pizza, bacon and egg flan, veg spring rolls, and soup.
If you had missed b/f there was snacks available later in the morning, I was only at it once to make a toastie so did not look to see what else was on offer.
The hotel is only a few minutes walk to the beach and all the shops, you also pass the crazy golf on the way.
The pool bar is open from 10.00am till 6.00pm. The bar men were very nice, worked hard and talked to you if you talked to them, some people just go to the bar ask for the drink and walk away with no word of thanks to the men. At 6.00pm the bar inside opens, this is outside the restuarant and next to where the entertainment is.
Entertainment team was good enough, sadly due to a gambling license issue there was no bingo but the rest of the entertainment was better than I have seen at some hotels.

Magaluf is easy enough to walk to, though we did take a taxi and went to the Up side down house and an Irish bar just across from it ( it might have been nxt door) Lol.

All in all a very enjoyable holiday and we will def be going back.

Room Tip: If you want a sea veiw ask for foor 5 and above.

this was our first visit to palma nova in five years and had an enjoyable stay,nothing really changed much.stayed for aweek in october and was nice and warm,on arrival we had to wait for an hour for the room got the key and the room still was not ready so dumped cases and went for adrink.we found the food ok but not a lot of choice,staff friendly enough and the bar being open till 12 at night was a bonus.it wasnt too busy at the pool but could see it being a problem in high season.went to the venitian palace bar nice ice cream and pint for 1.50 and always afriendly welcome as opposed to cheeks bar where the guy behind the bar was a miserable git.found magaluf very quiet probably the time of year,would stay at hotel again as we had no problems.

I stayed at the Palmanova Hotel from the 20th November for 4 nights, The hotel was nice and very clean, the rooms were a nice size and adequate for 2 adults. I do agree with the other reviews that the walls are very thin and you can hear anything even people going to the toilet!! The hotel is nicely situated and not far away from the beach, shops and resturants. We stayed all inclusive and to be honest for what we paid it was ok. Drinks good, san miguel on tap which my hubbie loved. The food was a bit hit and miss and was fairly average, not too much choice but you would find something to eat even for the fussy people. A nice time of the year to go to majorca as still warm and much quieter. Yes the sunbeds were taken early every day so unless you want to get up very early you would find it difficult to get one. One thing annoys me if people leaving towels on the beds most of the day but not actually sitting on them till later in the day!! The entertainment team were very good and worked hard, Shows were good but to get a seat you need to get there early!! I would definetly recommend this hotel!! Enjoy

Room Tip: Try and get a lower floor as the lifts are very slow!!

I cannot understand the good reviews given by people that have stayed in this hotel, i can only assume that they have not ever stayed in a good hotel. The food was terrible and we found ourselves having to eat out for breakfast and evening meal (Natalies Place was very good). We stayed here from the 23rd October till the 27th October and on the first night we went into the dining room and was pleased to see steak and kidney pie on the menu, but unfortunately it was not good and after that we struggled to find anything that was good to eat
The rooms are clean but basic and the walls are very thin you can hear everything that your neighbours are doing
We would not recommend this hotel to our friends and will not be going back
If you do decide to use this hotel our friend were staying in room 425 and this room has an amazing view

Room Tip: Room 425 has a good sea view and is a corner room so very spacious

We visited this hotel early October, there was me, my husband and another couple.
To begin with I found the lady on reception lacked basic customer service skills she was not very welcoming and didn't smile once, and again when we left, she just snatched our key and grunted something!
The food is awful! There is no vegetarian choice (unless you want to eat just vegetables). Can't believe people think the food here is good. My husband and our friends are meat eaters and they weren't too impressed either!
The hotel is very well situated, with only a five minute walk to the beach, shops and bars. Golf Fantasia is right next door which is well worth a visit.
The rooms are clean but very basic.
The pool area only has a few decent sun loungers, which are reserved at stupid o' clock. The rest of the loungers are in desperate need of replacement.
I can't comment on the entertainment as we were out the 3 evenings we were there.
This hotel was ok as a base for a cheap short break, but I would definately not want to spend my main holiday here. People do seem to come back year after year, but I do wonder if they have ever been anywhere else!! The world is a big place!!!
All in all there was no atmosphere at this hotel - it was like night of the living dead!!!
