“Not for families!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

Have just returned from cas saboners, the rooms were really spacious and equipt with what we needed but could be cleaner, the first week we were there the cleaner only came in once and that was just a basic clean, the floors were grubby! Nice powerful but dated shower, Beds were comfortable and lots of wardrobe space but take some hanger as only had 10. This is definatly not a family hotel, from thurs to sunday the place is over run with stag parties which were quite noisy. At night as we were getting home there were lots of young people and stag /hen parties happening all over the complex getting ready to go out but once our door was shut we couldnt hear a thing (although we did have ear plugs in as the airconditioning was noisy). Over all a good hotel for groups but wouldnt recommend for couples or families and i wouldnt book to stay here again unless it was a really cheap deal but the location is good.

Stayed at These apartments in october 2009, we had a 1 Bedroom apartment with 2 beds and 2 sofa beds, It was nice and clean with a pool view. Great location for Palma nova and Magaluf. Very reasonably prices too in low season. Would deffinately stay here again.

Room Tip: best rooms are away from the road as it can be noisy from traffic as the bedroom backs onto the road...

There were a lot of young groups, but if you expect to go to this area and not expect this you shouldn't be going in the first place, There were no issues with noise at night, the apartments were very well soundproofed and our neighbours had lots of girls coming an going and we didn't really hear anything, the dogs barking in the houses behind were noisier.

The pool area is lovely, there weren't that many sun loungers, i think if you went in July/August you would maybe struggle. we like the beach so not too much of a problem for us.

We didn't eat here but what we could see they looked good and the prices were fine. there is a shop in the hotel and one right next door so that was also good.

If you like the beach there is a shortcut straight across the road down some steps.

If you like magaluf turn left out of the complex then left again for a shortcut rather than traipsing all the way through torrenova

The apartments have air conditioning in the bedroom and the living area so that was good as the weather was in the 30's when we were there so hot hot hot.

The staff were all excellent very friendly and happy

we travelled with jet2 holidays very good value for money

Room Tip: all rooms seem to face the pool, i wouldn't choose a groundfloor as there are a lot of young gro...

Seeing some of the other reviews I feel I have to come to the defence of this lovely aparthotel.

Aparthotel Playas Ca's Saboners is situated on the border of Magalluf and Palma Nova, and you can walk into either resort in a matter of minutes. We have stayed here in May for the last 6 or 7 years and we have always had a great time, peaceful and relaxing, and the weather is very warm, which is why we keep coming back. The self-catering rooms are basic but have everything you need, they are very clean and comfortable, the staff are very obliging, and the location is excellent. The swimming pool is clean and there is a lifeguard all day long, there is low-level music and entertainment and everybody seems to have a good time.

We are a "mature couple" of 50-somethings who like a bit of peace and quiet during the day, then venture out in the evenings to eat and drink (often into Magalluf but we are usually home by not long after midnight!). We like a bit of nightlife but try to avoid any trouble! This aparthotel suits us very well, and it also suits us to go in May, when it is very much a family hotel. We have also visited in September when it is also quiet and peaceful.

However we would not visit anywhere in Magalluf later in the season when the resort increasingly fills with stag and hen parties. It isn't the fault of the hotel that this type of group chooses to go there, but the location close to Magalluf must attract them, and I bet that many of the other reasonably-priced hotels also suffer the same fate. During high season I would choose a different resort altogether, or head deeper into Palma Nova to get away from the stags and hens.

Room Tip: We ask for a ground-floor room so we can pop in and out to the pool area easily through the patio do...

If you want a relaxing holiday don't come here, place overrun with rowdy lads and girls, don't know which were the worst, parties from six at night until well after midnight, then woken up in the early hours when they returned from the clubs. Bottles, glasses and rubbish left all over the place.When we asked at reception if they could keep the noise down told to ring them when we heard it and they would send the Security Guard round, why wasn't he walking round when he saw them come in from their night out! We have stayed here for the last five years but never again. The apartments were not very clean and could do with being updated, towels were threadbare and grey, sheets were paper thin even the surrounding areas were dirty. A few years ago the pool area was swept and washed before the sun beds were put out, never saw this happen once in 12 days.Definitely wouldn't go back again.

Now I like trip advisor ..... Most of the time ! But sometimes it just gives people a chance to have a go !! I mean we booked this hotel begin of June and it was fine it was cheap and in a good location and rooms were clean ! Staff were fine and the front door was always open so it didn't matter what time you came home.
People comment on groups being in the hotel but that's not there fault, the hotel is running a business and I'm sure needs what booking it can ! For the price that you pay it was grat maybe it needs to be marketed a different way ie may be young and lively in certain months ? If you want a good deal that's in a good location then happy booking !!! Ps taxi from the airport is about 40 euros.

Where to start. Place overrun with hen and stag parties. These dominated the pool, drinking, swearing and smoking in the pool, taking glass bottles into the pool.

Hotel policy of removing towels from reserved sunbeds is non existant. If you're not down there by 0700 you'll be lucky get one.

Woken up anytime from 0300 onwards with loud and abusive groups of blokes that seemed to bang on every door. Didn't see any security all week.

The apartments are very tired and in dire need of updating. The small kitchen is barely adequate. The microwave looks like a proto type. The hob and controls are old, difficult to read and dirty. The table leg had been repaired so many times there was more glue than wood on it. The table chairs were all broken to some extent, one so bad that it was unsafe to use.

The floor was filthy. There was food and rubbish from the previous tenents on the floor. Dirt and sand was everywhere. The shower was little more than a dribble.

The location is OK. A supermarket just to the left of the hotel (as you look at it). The beach is just down a set of stairs. Bars and restuarants a plenty.

If you want a holiday with your mates then this is for you. If you want a family base go somewhere else.
