“Ola”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Hotel was lovely and clean, beds were comfy and clean. The air-con was turned off on the 15th Sept but when we got there on the 22nd it was 33 degrees and it was very hot to sleep and they would'nt turn it back on. Food was plentiful and good. There were a lot of french and they were bloody rude. The only gripe I have is the lack of entertainment, it was very funny but for all the wrong reasons, very amateur with not a lot of thought. Some day games in the pool would have been nice, 2 min walk to the beach and shops. For what we paid it was a nice hotel and a good holiday.

Just back a few weeks and this was a great hotel. The staff were lovely. The food was good the bar was self service. The beds were a bit hard but its always the same when you go abroad. There was a good few steps if you had a pram and no ramp access for wheelchairs. It was a quiet hotel at night which was good. Everyone is all inclusive and when you hand in room key at checkout you still can use all the facilities until your pick up which was great compared to hotel we were at last year when you check out you dont get anything else. Granted they do speak french first but as soon as they hear accent they do speak good english. Some reviews are a bit over the top. We would certainly go back again.

Had the misfortune to stay here for one night has the hotel (Don Bigote) we had booked over the road couldn`t accommodate us. The reception area looked a bit tatty and dated, but weren`t too bothered by that. Until we made our way to our room. The corridors were dark dingy and smelly.
The room although a decent size was so outdated and in desperate need of fresh paint and decoration. To be fair the room wasn`t unclean, but just felt dirty. A rusty leaking fridge was our main focal point in the room.
Decided to make the best of it as we would only be there one night and so made our way out for the night in Palma Nova. Came back and the bed was so hard I doubt I had 2 hours sleep all night. Constant banging and shouting of returning guests also didn`t make for a restful night. Okay we expected people coming back late, but the whole hotel gave a sense of discomfort and insecurity.
Needless to say checked out ASAP the next day and enjoyed the rest of our holiday in the Don Bigote. IF for any reason we had been told that we needed to stay there another night I would of forked out for another hotel and bitten the bullet in terms of cost. .

Having just returned from a week at the hotel all I can say is that the hotel is fine, it looks like it is one of the original hotels in Palma Nova. It has a very unusual self service bar, which is fine, except that from 10 in the morning until 11 when it opened we couldnt get a coffee or even water. The air conditioning was switched off and when i asked about this the staff said it was a company policy and to sleep with the patio door open, which would be fine in a quiet resort but not in Palma Nova, also it was a risk as we were on the first floor and the balconys are such that if you wanted to you could balcony hop. The staff greeted every one by speaking French not Spanish and a lot of the guests were elderly French who were veryrude when in the dining hall. The food was good and there was something on the menu for everyone, the only complaint is that a menu wasnt produced and printed. The bed we had was a very small double and it was very hard. If you do stay at this hotel make sure you go to the bar next door as this is very friendly and very reasonable. One last thing on the hotel it is not suitable for disabled guests as there are about 15 steps to go down to get in the hotel and then 5 or 6 to go up to get to a lift, and also 5 or 6 to get to the pool area, there is no ramps. An elderly lady had a mobiltiy scooter on hire and had to leave it on the pavement outside at all times.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back as this will enable a good nights sleep.

We enjoyed the stay at this centrally located hotel that had a good self service bar. It was interesting to see people drinking reasonably sensibly. This may have been a French thing. We had a child with us and often went out at night. The many stairs at the hotel meant it was difficult with a buggy and it was a bit of a drag that just as we got back at 11pm the bar was closed and we couldn't even buy a drink. The hotel was clean and the food fine but it did get a little monotonous after a few days however there are plenty of places to eat out nearby. We enjoyed the pool area and it felt safe with the lifeguards and animation girls always working hard to entertain people. We booked two rooms for the family and asked at booking if these could be adjacent, They didn't have any on arrival even though I rang to confirm two days in advance. The rooms were reasonably sized but the maid did not leave any shampoo etc or change our towels over a 5 day period. Our room was very noisy in the early morning with traffic but the worst thing was the Mosquitos. So take repellent and a bite pen. The most annoying thing for me was that the rooms did not have WIFI and you had to pay quite a lot just to use it in the reception. Since the TV was poor and the only English speaking channels were News programmes don't expect to stay in the room for long.

Room Tip: Perhaps a room on a high floor may be less noisy.

We have just come back after a ten night break at the Ola Panama, the only bad thing I can say about it is there were a lot of French people there so not a lot of people to talk to if your English, but as the week went on more Brits started to arrive. The food is very very good, the entertainment was ok didn't see much of it as we went out after our evening meal to the pub amigos cafe at the front of the Panama hotel where there was a waiter called Rafa, he was sooooo funny, well worth going there not only do you get a drink, you also get entertainment as well. The room in the hotel was very clean and of good size, with a large balcony, the pool side was also good they had a slide into the pool, watching people come down was very entertaining and sometimes funny. The hotel itself is in a great location, at the end of the road to the right was Magaluff and to the left Palma nova, and 3 minutes away from the beach front, so good location. Hot running water at all times, and the maids came in everyday apart from Wednesday which was her day off. We are that impressed we are thinking of booking again. After reading some reports on the hotel about cockroaches we saw two, one was dead on the road and the other wasn't in the hotel but also on the road. The staff at the hotel were always helpful and very polite, the entertainment team always had something going on all day, from archery to shooting volley ball in the pool, they were so helpful. We had a brilliant time would go back tomorrow.......
