“Good value hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

We stayed at the Hi Palma Nova hotel all inclusive 19th - 26th May 2012.

There was a good crowd and varied age groups in the hotel who all mixed well and appeared to enjoy themselves which is what a holiday is all about !!

Our room was modern and well furnished. The standard of cleanliness in our room and throughout the hotel was very good and credit must be given to the staff for maintaining such high standards even when the hotel was very busy.

The entertainment team were very good, doing their best to engage with all guests and keep everyone entertained from morning to night. The evening entertainment was good ranging from the entertainment team doing a nightly 'Name that tune' style quiz and their own song/dance performances. Various performers included a very good Michael Jackson alternative musical style tribute and also a very different girl group the Sundaes not to be missed !!

The food provided was lovely with a good variety to suit all tastes.

I agree with the comments regarding the sunbeds, simply not enough for the number of guests in the hotel and they are reserved (towels on them !) from very early, however this was the only negative feedback that I would give.

The hotel is located close to the beach, bars, restaurants and shops if you leave via the gate at the far end of the pool.

In summary this is a good value hotel in a great location and I would not hesitate in returning to or recommending to potential customers.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room.

After reading reviews on here i was a bit nervous about what to expect but forget the bad reviews, they are no great reflection on this superb budget hotel.

sure, had I paid more I would have expected more but the rooms were clean, food was of a good standard and usually warm, drink was very good and large measures, pools etc all good.

Entertainment was fun but cheesy and the staff were very friendly.

A small proportion of the guests were loud and a bit drunk at night but less than I thought and 99% of the people staying there were friendly.

Don't go here thinking you will get a 5 star experience as you will be let down but for basic, cheap fun, this place ticked all boxes.

Room Tip: All rooms had a good view.

Just returned from 11 nights at the Palmanova hotel, like lots of 3 star acommodation this hotel gets lots of mixed revues, I would personally describe it as the top end of the 3 star range, the food and staff coming in for high praise.
The rooms are clean and cleaned every day, towels and sheets changed regularly.
The only issues as stated in other revues is the sunbed fiasco, people putting towels on at 01:00am. is silly, but this happens in loads of other hotels. Only having 2 lifts is the other gripe, at busy times you can wait a while only to find the lift full when it comes.
We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly go again for the same deal we got in May.

Room Tip: Lower floors are best due to having busy lifts

Our third visit to this hotel but must admit was disapointed. Not only was the entertainment up to much but every single day you had to fight for sun bed. Towels were put on beds early morning whether or not the people went back to them or not. Some days towels were left for hours on end with no one returning to sun beds. Did complain to management but nothing was done about it. On a lighter note the entertainment team were very good. Angela, James and Rob did their utmost to keep everyone happy and must admit Angela and James did keep people entertained with their beautiful singing voices. Unfortunately will not be going back in a hurry. Bar staff and maids were very co operative.

Room Tip: If you do go there ask for room overlooking pool and not main road.

I and my partner booked this hotel via "On The Beach" great price for all inclusive 7 nights.
We looked at the mixed reviews and went with it anyway as we always have a great time no matter what. We arrived late in the evening 19th May welcomed by a guy on reception very helpful and very happy. We had snacks in the bar around 10pm and started our fun packed holiday there and then. The room we had was not facing a pool but we were never in the room really so not too bothered about a sea/pool view... the room was extremely clean, clean towels every day, cleaned every day, what more can you ask for!!
The breakfast ok, not great but ok... we started eating at Rogers beach bar fab breakfast.
The lunch you could always find something nice to eat, meat, fish, pasta, veg, salad the food goes on and all nice food compared to other all inclusive hotels we have stayed in. Evening meals also the same nice food good selections. Snacks on throughout the day never going without. Drinks/ hot, cold, soft, alcohol served, bar open for all inclusive till midnight after then you can pay for drinks up to 1am, then the bar closes. Service always good!
Pool bar outside serving up to 6pm. Onto the entertainment... the team, James, Angie, Rob, Jenny absolutely fantastic people they worked long hours in the pool area all day long with a short afternoon break... doing fun games for children and adults the best was water polo/basket i think at one point they had about 5 Michael playing and what good fun it was to watch or take part. The evening entertainment was also good, they did everything to involve people but some folk just don't want to get involved. If you want to be involved then the entertainment team are great!!!

The hotel is close to beach and Palma Nova bars, about 30 mins walk into Magaluf (if active walking people or a 45 min stroll). Beach way nice walk and the shops way also a good walk too stopping at bars along the way!!

One thing about this hotel it lacks sunbeds and it is a noticeable problem not enough sunbeds for the amount of guests staying and the hotel really do need to look at getting more beds!! Some people just put towels down at 1,2,3,4,5,6 am everyday and that is a total jokel!!!!! We managed to get sunbeds a couple of times during our 7night stay and when we did we might of been there for 2,3,4 hours noticing that beds with towels on had been unused for several hours during the day.. people leave towels down and the go out or don't use them!! Some people put towels down early and stay there all day which is how it should be :-) Having said that the hotel does have chairs/tables which you can use also.

Recommended bars/food: Port O'Call for a nice fine dining experience amazing food, celebrated my birthday there. Tropic cocktail bar great place to stop for drinks, try the Brown Cow cocktail :-) Rogers beach bar great food followed by great prices!!

Jet skis in Magaluf are 50 euros for 1 person or 80 euros for 2 people approx 1 hour all in all... boat ride out there and about 30 mins on the jet ski and a boat ride back to shore.

If you like your original designer gear all 100% original go to Palma Nova store called Stop Palma Nova... great staff and fab products.

cigs/tobacco cheap in the resort stores then duty free.

We met loads of lovely people and will be going back to this hotel again and would recommend to all ages!! Couples/families/groups.

Some people go back year after year after year!!!

Have a nice holiday, and if you have booked this hotel you will be happy :-)

Room Tip: If you want a good view ask for pool view, all rooms seem to be big anyway but the pool view would b...

Again after reading mixed reviews about the hotel. I was not sure what to expect. I can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were very clean. maid cleaned room the 7days we were there & clean towels every day which I thought was gr8 as I'm not sure how many people have clean towels 7days a week at home but I don't! We went half board but hotel offered upgrade to all-inclusive for approx 187euros which for 1 week 2 people was well worth the money. It meant we could just lazy around if wanted to.Food was spot on there is plenty of choices, a couple of folk complained but this is mass catering not mitchlen star restaurants. On whole staff very friendly & helpful, nothing was a trouble to them. Only thing I would mention is the sunbeds the hotel have replaced loads of the beds & do tell people not to reserve them but as usual you have the sados who get up at the crack of dawn to put their towels down & lie in the same spot all week, but I don't go on holiday to get up at the crack of dawn so just used the plenty of seats &table areas around the hotel. Entertainment was fine but it is run on a weekly rota so if you staying 2weeks you will see shows twice,but then its a holiday make your own entertainment.
I have been to a lot of hotels in Magaluf & Palmanova & would certainly recommend & use it again if I was going back to the Island.

Room Tip: We were in room 501 which faced on to the main road but with a view of the mountains was great for u...
