Before going away i looked on the internet to find reviews of the hotel as i wanted to see what people thought. Having read some pretty bad reviews i was a bit worried about staying there, however when i got there i was presently surprised! The food was the main issue for me as i was all inclusive, but that was great, full english breakfast on a morning, lunch and evening meal were also great with soup,hot food, choice of salads and pasta etc couldn't complain and also snacks in between throughout the day! The rooms were cleaned everyday much to my surprise which for me was also a plus as i cant stand a dirty room!
Everything about the holiday i loved!!
The only down side i would say for the hotel is the pool area and pool itself does get very crowed, i dont know if this is because it was peak season but me and my boyfriend opted for the beach everytime as it was much quieter and less of a hassle trying to find a bed!!
But all in all a super holiday, and i would recommend it to anyone!!

A very god hotel to spend 2 weeks in like we did as our group. We went AI and the food was pretty good all round, espically the toasties at "snack time". We did go as a group who went out every night, but we wernt one of the rowdy ones in the hotel like others. The staff and Security Guards are very strict a word of warning for groups of you, they will give you a warning just like that! But overall a very good holiday and the alochol is spot on, so much cheaper then Self-catering!

This is a great hotel, for a 3* I really dont think you'll find better. We were a mixed-age family/friends group: 18,25,40,45 & 53 and we all loved this hotel.

We went AI & found it to be excellent value for money. The food is fantastic, for such a small hotel we couldnt believe the selection & quality of the meals. Plenty of choice, the best Full English breakfast you could wish for, and really tasty lunches & dinners. Drinks were great, San Miguel is the standard beer, hotel wines actually drinkable, lovely cocktails, usual selection of spirits & soft drinks. They do mix them on the strong side though!

Hotel overall seemed very well run, very clean, staff always cleaning & tidying up. The room maids were delightful & very helpful (asked for extra hangers, two lots came straightaway). Reception staff diligent, helpful & very professional. Both lifts were working whilst we were there, they are on the small side (max capacity 6 people in each) so sometimes there is a wait before one arrives, sometimes we waited & sometimes we used the stairs, no big deal really. Rooms do not have hairdryers which caught me out, but I hired one for the week which cost 13 Euros + 20 deposit.

The hotel is in a great location, just 5 mins walk to the beautiful sandy beach, main promenade & shops, bars, cafes & restaurants. There were a few stag & hen parties staying whilst we were there, but we didnt find any problems with noise levels. Palmanova is well outside of Magaluf, the 2 youngest in our group went clubbing there one night & decided to walk (stagger) home & it took them 3 hours. Some of the other guests we were talking to said they'd heard people coming in & being quite noisy in the early hours but we didnt experience any disturbances. The hotel itself is very quiet, evening entertainment very low-key, mainly aimed at children, with regular bingo! and all music finishes at midnight. After midnight the pool area is closed-off, only access to hotel is via reception after that, so at least you dont have people being noisy outside & larking around in the pool at all hours.

So all in all a great hotel for cleanliness, value for money, quality of food & location.

We are already looking to book the Palmanova again for later in the year.

Stayed here last August for a week and loved it so much we booked for 10 days this June. Hotel still the same, very clean, fantastic food, and helpfull staff. The big downside was that this time a lot of groups of young men were staying here. They were very noisy during the early hours when they came in, constantly setting off the fire extinguishers which covered the corridors in slippery powder, making walking to breakfast a hazzard. During the day they were drinking to excess and very rowdy. This is a family type hotel and we spoke to several guests, who like us did not appreciate this behaviour. I do hope the hotel reviews its policy on letting rooms to young singles.

We have just returned from a great holiday at the Palma Nova and it was first class, I went with my Husband my 20 year old Daughter, my Sister and her 3 little girls.
Our rooms were kept very clean all week , the food there was the best i have had on an (AI) holiday, one of the children is a fussy eater and she enjoyed every meal.
The entertainment : at first i thought they would get on my nerves but they really turned out to be great Maxi and Sarah & co turned our good holiday into a great holiday, the kids loved them, they worked so hard from the time we got up till we went to bed.
The pool had a life guard on duty all day. My only moan about this place and it is only a very small one is that it clearly states no balls in the pool, but people still took them in, this would have been fine in the deep end where small children did not go, but most of the people who took balls in were throwing them about in the shallow end where there was small children.
I will be going back to this Hotel as it has been one of the best i have been to in a very long time.

Stayed between the 27 May and 11 Jun and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel after reading a few bad reviews
It is a good honest 3 star European holiday hotel
The lifts are small and often out of service, but that is the only minus, and it can be applied to so many other hotels.
Good location:
Golf Fantasia and Tabu restaurant stand out for me, nice beach within 5 minutes.
The swimming area is just average and I imagine there are too few sunbeds if the sun shines (it rarely did that during our fortnight!)

all in all a reasonable place for the money

We stayed at Hotel Palma Nova from 7th - 14th June. We really enjoyed our holiday, the hotel was in a great location and 2 minutes away from the beach. The food was good, there was a good choice and it was lovely food although the desserts were a bit disapointing. I was a bit worried after reading the reviews but shouldn't have been as I can't say that I agree with any of the negative reviews. We are a young couple aged 24 and 28 and think that it is great for couples who are young or older and families. The entertainment mainly focused on the children but overall the entertainment was ok . The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel is 20 minutes walk away from Magaluf and is surrounded by some nice bars. It isn't easy to get a sunlounger around the pool though. I would go here again and would recommend it to others.
