Arrived at the Gabarda 18 July 2013 for a three night break with my partner, bar and security staff were very friendly on arrival and directed us to our room within minutes. Room basic, spotless, no air con but had a fan on the ceiling, very comfortable and ideal for a little cheeky break. The following morning we went down for breakfast which was served with a lovely smile by a fab cook, lovely hot breakfast and a smile a good start to the day. Reception staff amazing also, very pleasant and helpful. Before arriving we had checked out the pool which was very tiny, something that did not bother us as we went down to the beach. Can only say the weekend was fab, lovely places to stop off and eat. My Tapas is defo worth a try, lovely ambiance, the British Bar round the corner from Banana Joes also is nice for a lunch time snack, served by Ann-marie, lovely friendly lady and if your legs can take the walking a nice stroll up to the Prince William, very reasonable there for drinks. Cant wait to go back to the Gabarda, if you need a base this is the ideal place to go and easy on the purse strings. My partner and I had a lovely few days.

Well to start I can honestly say this hotel deserves a lot more credit and should definitely be more then 2star, the staff are very polite and the kitchen lady works sooo hard! The staff enjoyed chatted to us and where very tolerant when dealing with drunk stupid teenagers (like us haha) I feel this hotel was a great find and id recommend it to anyone! We stayed in palma nova to visit the night life over in magaluf everynight and it felt great being about to have a noisy night then return to our nice and clean hotel and have a quiet sleep. Fresh sandwiches are served everyday, the free breakfast was just enough and spot on. The bar man gave us a few treats like party vest tops etc. Our room wasn't bad atall, nice and clean, spacious, really could of done with aircon though.. one down side I must say would be the pool.. the pool doesn't catch the sun until 12ish in the afternoon and now im an early bird and my friends slept in so I was having to wait by a shady pool side to the afternoon before I caught sun. And the pool is so small.. I enjoy a large pool area with a little music playing and plenty of sun. The beach ACROSS THE ROAD :D is really really nice too, the maids came round often and clean the room really thorough, for what we payed we was definitely spoilt! I would go back there any time

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of June (7 girls - Irish & British). We all checked in on different days but the hotel staff put us all on the first floor and next door to eachother which was great. The rooms were plain and basic but PERFECT. They were spotless. New towels were provided daily and the rooms were also cleaned. We had an apartment on the corner which had a huge balcony. We had breakfast every morning which set us up for the day - couldnt fault it. The hotel receptionists were lovely and very informative. The bar men were also very nice and very helpful. The hotel is situated beside palmanova beach (5 minute walk) and all its bars and restaurants.

The hotel did get a tad noisy in the early hours of the morning as people were returning from nightclubs etc. But it does say on the website that its not a hotel for young families and it didnt bother us.

We didnt use the pool as it was small and always in the shade but we didnt mind as the beach was so close-by.

Drinks and food in the bar are a little overpriced - only downside!

Would definitely recommend to groups of friends looking for nights out in both Magaluf and Santa Ponsa - taxis were very cheap.

We will be back :)

Thanks!

My fiance and I have stayed here on 3 occasions now, and go back because of the friendly and helpful staff and excellent location.
It has an excellent bus service just up the round and fares are very reasonable. It takes less than have an hour to get to the capital Palma, well worth a visit.
Majorca is a beautiful Island and staying in Palma Nova is ideal as a starting point for visiting many places in south of the island.
The first sunday in may has Europe Day which is well worh a visit, with lots of stalls, activities and music, making it a brilliant day out for all ages.
