“It was ok...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

My 9 year old son and I stayed in this hotel during May half-term. I'd read the reviews and decided to give it a go. Firstly the entertainment staff were first class and the best thing about the hotel - they really tried to get adults and children involved and my son really enjoyed it. The adult entertainment was on quite late which wasn't always a good thing. The pool was freezing and I didnt even take a dip all week even my son struggled to stay in for more than 20 minutes - there is a slide which they made good use of. The pool area itself was quite small and I can expect in high season to be uncomfortably cramped due to the amount of rooms in hotel but the beach is nearby. The food was ok not the best or worst. The snacks during the day was bread cold meats, crisps and cake. The hotel itself offered spacious rooms and were cleaned every day except one. It was very noisy - the walls are paper thin so if you have trouble sleeping this might not be the best hotel. I found although hosted lots of different people from the elderly to large groups of people probably as its cheap. The staff were pretty helpful. I think in this case you get what you pay for.

nice and clean food average .It stated on the beach could not even see the sea but not to far to walk .A lot of children there which they catered for very well but unfortunately they forgot that they were adults there to be entertained so even though we were all inclusive had to go out for our entertainment. A lot of steps and no ramps very awkward for prams saw quite a few people stumble trying to get up and down the steps

if you make the effort you can bridge the language gap, we have just returned from two weeks at the panama and have had the best holiday we have ever had in Palma Nova since first travelling there in 1998. We have stayed in various hotels but none have compared to this. From first checking in the staff have gone out of their way to help with anything that you require. In the dining room there is something for everyone to eat, in fact if you cannot find anything to eat you must be used to eating at the most luxurious places that cost a fortune. The rooms are cleaned six days a week but if you require towels on the cleaners day off, they are also available. The very hard working entertainment staff are on duty from 10.30am until they straighten and help clean up at the end of the night, and throughout the day they try to involve everyone from the youngest to the oldest. Most of the other evening shows are quite good, especially the human flag. I found every member of staff, from the top to the bottom to be very polite and courteous. I will return next year and am looking forward to it.

Room Tip: Our room had a double bed and fridge as standard

Well just got back from here stayed for seven days.First must say some staff where friendly there was just one that i spoke to and think she was having a bad day .Anyway food was not for me eat out a lot which is not what i wanted to do having paid for all inclusive but some people i spoke to got on with it the big problem this hotel as and every i spoke to said the same is there is to many guests for the dining area it needs to be double the size it is reminds me of school with the long ques that no matter what time you went in it was always the same.The entertainment area was the same as well just to small for the amount of guest you had to get a table at 5 and the shows wouldn't start till 9 adding to this it was not high season.But on massive plus is met some great people here which made up for down sides .The other thing is this hotel is not on the sea front its on the back streets but it's in a great location for bars and restaurants and plenty of tatte shops which the misses loved to stroll round think by the end of the week we managed to do them all lol.would I go back yes but sorry not to this hotel it really needs to sort out the size of the entertainment area and dining hall.Hope this helps someone .

Just returned from another great holiday at Ola Club Panama. A good value all inclusive hotel.
Great location - not far from the airport, 2 minute walk to the beach. (Palma Nova has 3 wonderful beaches) If you fancy a day on the beach and hire a sun lounger/parasol – everything costs 4:50 euro for the day. Loads of things to do on the beach including pedlos, para-gliding and banana boats etc.
Close to shops – don’t worry if you forget anything – you will be able to buy it here.
Great pool – large swimming pool with slide and smaller children’s pool.
Great for families – with a free mini golf, a fort Robinson playground/sandpit area, table tennis, a pool table plus a “mini club”. There is a mini club disco every night at 8:30pm – my kids loved this! Plus most nights there is a game of bingo and a show. Two nights a week there is a professional show – flamenco & a magician. The other nights there is entertainment by the staff including Glee, a quiz night (A bit cheesy - but fun)
Good food – Three meals (Breakfast, Lunch and dinner) All meals are buffet style – with hot and cold choices. Including a salad bar, soup, rice, chips and a range of Spanish and International cusine. Something for everyone. Plus the bar has a selection of snacks between 11am-11pm
The bar is the SELF SERVICE – with a selection of local beer, local spirits and a slush machine for the kids.
However if you want to spend some money/like a different beer/cocktail lots of local bars – 2 min walk is Castaways and Banana Joes. Also not far away is a cider bar and a Indian restaurant. Also the hotel is about 20 min’s walk from Magaluf – if you fancy a livelier night out.
The hotel included English, French, German and Swedish holiday makers of all age ranges.
It’s a easy all inclusive week in the sun and good fun for the kids.
Places to visit - Palma either by boat (pick up near McDonalds) or by local bus. Palma Market is on Saturdays and is worth a visit! We hired a car and also visited Palma in the day and at night, Valldemossa, the Caves of Drac, Soller and Lluc Monastery. Wished we had time to go on the Orange Blossom express tram to Soller – maybe next time!
There is plenty to do - you can spend money on shows/trips or you can just chill

Stayed at the Ola club Panama in Palma Nova, Mallorca for one week (22-29th May.)
Upon arrival we were greeted by im presuming one set of the reception staff.. obviously thinking we were french the woman began to speak to us in French (Understanding that the hotel company is french, we shrugged it off.) , we had booked 3 rooms one for me, and the other two for other members of our party. I was not over-joyed as I arrived in my room.. It had the basic neccessities needed but wasnt anything special. We had a kitchen area in ours (Not quite sure why.) which was completely useless as there was a double bed blocking access to the cupoards. Whilst unfolding the pull out bed I found a mouldy peice of salami which, must of been under that bed for god knows how long. And I asked at reception for my apartment to be checked again. I was releived when she said she would send someone up, however when i got back to my room.. yes it had been checked again but I found numerous hairs in my blanket. The food that evening was good, but always the same. The entertainment team couldnt of done more they were fantastic 'Fiesta consulting' bravo to you, and that made us all feel that we were cherished guests. In the bedrooms the walls seemed to be made out of paper, you could hear every noise coming from the other people around the same area as you. The glass on the door to the balcony was just enough to look like glass. Service was great although it was pretty much 'do it yourself.' Overall I think that The Ola Club Panama is very out-dated and needs a renovation in the near future, for a cheap off season holiday it wasn't bad, but regarding all of the factors that made my stay un-pleasant.. I would not stay here again and I would scarcely recommend it to anyone who could afford to pay more.

Room Tip: Im presuming that rooms facing away from the road will be much quieter, although I didnt really catc...

great food for self service eat as much as you want go up as many times as you like but if you take it they like you to eat it which is fair enough so take smaller portions and go back for the things you like most try everything just take a small portion till you know you like it . good range of food hot foods beef, pork, fish, paella, risotto, chips, potatoes,veg, salads, continental foods. three different deserts each meal ice cream always available . breakfast cereals, continental breakfast, english breakfast, toast. snack bar open from 11 to 11 fizzy drinks wine beer and all alcohols help yourself. reception staff great dinning room staff great all willing to help clean table cloth after each person leaves. pool area very good sun beds around the pool small pool for the little ones deep pool for the older ones, slide, pool area cleaned every morning plenty of tables and chairs around the pool. life guard on patrol, and the entertainers great always something going on. kids entertainment loud but fun adult entertainment ie rifle shooting, table tennis, darts, archery, french bowls,water polo,if you want a quiet sunbathe the the roof top area is ideal nice sun loungers no children. room clean tidy nice size we had pool view but noise till midnight and from nine in morning not that it stopped us sleeping not loud and was directly above the entertainment but had no trouble didn't find the noise a problem. few down sides steps going down to hotel not good for buggies lifts a bit small twos company threes a crowd would say not suitable for wheelchairs . will thank all the staff for a pleasant stay and the entertainment staff were greatest, friendly helpful game for a laugh and bubbly. all round good for all ages worth more than three star have stayed in five star in uk and its way better. oh and by the way if you have any problems speak to reception they will be very happy to help spoke to a few families that had little problems and they said that the management couldn't be any more helpful and all resolved quickly. close to parma nova beach less than 5 mins 15 20 minutes to magaluf .
