Just as good as last year. All hotel staff are excellent and friendly, they are always welcoming and helpful. Cant wait to go back there in October this year. When there go to Natalie's and for great nights out try the stadium bar, they have shows on every night the drinks cost a little more but it's worth it, and if you are like me there is karaoke to do which is grest fun.

My husband and I have just returned from a 6 night stay at the Hotel Gabarda. We arrived late at night and thought I had made a mistake. The hotel seems like it was in the middle of no where and seemed quite dated. However on waking in the morning we went down to the reception to ask for breakfast and was welcomed by such a lovely woman who advised me on how everything worked and answered all my questions in such a helpful manner. Breakfast is cooked from scratch, quite a treat. From start to finish the service was second to none, i can't fault it. We also soon realised the Hotel was very close to the beach and surrounded by so much choice for dining out. This hotel was full of adults and would not be recommended for families with young children, I would also not recommend for families with teenagers wanting to have the pubs and clubs on the door step, there is about 20 minute walk to magaluf and it can be a lonely walk back late at night or in the early hours of the morning. It can be very noisy when groups of friends come in but if you don't mind this it really is quite perfect.

Just come back from a girlie weekend to this hotel, arrived late and first thought was "OMG" but next morning with the sun shining the place seemed a lot better. Rooms are very dated but clean, we was in the Gil which is the annexe next door to Gabarda, seemed pretty quiet. Had to go into the main building for breakfast which was lovely, Christine the cook (from Ireland) was lovely, as was all the other staff we came across, the two english receptionists were very helpful. The pool isn't the very big but its ok just to cool off in. It did get a bit noisy just before we left as there was a couple of stag does in, but the staff seemed to be able to keep them under some kind of control. All in all an enjoyable stay, wouldn't go with kids

Me and my partner came here in june2012. we didnt arrive at the hotel until 1:00 in the morning and it was our first holiday alone together so we were a little apprehensive. At first the man on reception scared me a bit because he asked to take our passports but it was perfectly safe and he said we would get them back in the morning (which we did) Adele is the other lady on reception and she is soo lovely!! she couldnt be more helpful, and she was a great laugh too. she sorted out all the trips and days out for us. Was very sad to leave her. Hotel was clean and tidy-nothing glam but you got what you paid for, food was great and good prices but the drinks were quite pricey. would definately go there again. would not recommend for families as it can get a bit rowdy at night time. other than that fantastic stay!Close to the palma nova strip just a short walk down the road. Cheap and Cheerful! :)

I love the Gabarda, my visits to palma nova every weekend were hosted by the lovely friendly staff that provide a warm and happy environment. I called up at 2pm for a room for a couple of hours, no problem they said and instantly sorted me out. Even the personal touches such as " weve put you somewhere quiet" really set this simple hotel above the rest.

I will always return to the Gabarda when im in the area 2013 is bound to see me there.
