4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Was very worried before turning up as the reviews were not that great but was pleasantly surprised with how nice it is! Rooms are basic but that reflects the price, pool area is brilliant and location is even better! Would definitely advise people to ignore the bad reviews !

After mixed reviews online we booked VilaNova anyway, their pool area being the biggest attraction. The place was very clean, with housekeeping everyday! Staff were very friendly and very helpful, you can book your activities through reception which was great. It's right on the strip so a short walk to good restaurants and pubs, we never had a disappointing meal.... More

Me and two friends stayed at this hotel and all agree its the worst accommodation any of us have ever stayed in! I have never wrote a review on a hotel before but i think people need to know that the vilanova is probably one of the worst hotels and not to waste there time booking it. The room was... More

The hotel is not for families, to many young lads were drinking round the pool all day, partying all night loads of noise all night long to 5 in the morning. Won't be going back, the beach is nice and the restaurants ok but basically the hotel was not for families.

This hotel is great for stag and hen do's. Perfectly located on the strip, with a massive pool to lounge in during the day. I wouldn't recommend this for families or those who are looking for a little refinement. The rooms are tired however are big enough for groups of 4/5 to a room.

I stayed in this hotel for a week with a bunch of mates, split over 2 villas. Location wise the hotel is perfect, a couple of minutes from the clubs, bars, restaurants and shops of the strip, with the beach a 10 minute walk away. The villas themselves were pretty dire in fairness. Very shabby with all furniture, cutlery, utensils,... More

Where do I start..... I suppose with the good points - The pool is fantastic, plenty of sun loungers etc. staff at the bar are pleasant. I had to check out at 12 and my flight was not until the evening and at 5pm I was given a courtesy room to shower and change before I headed to the airport... More
