“The Best Holiday Ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2010

Just returned from a superb holiday with 7 other friends. Arrived having read the reviews on this site and was dreading the worst however I can safely say we experienced very few of the problems mentioned previously.
The rooms were clean, comfortable and were at a more than satisfactory given we weren't planning on doing much sleeping! The A/C was a god send, really could not have done without it, we left it on when leaving for a night in Magaluf and returned to lovely cool room which was perfect. The cooking facilities weren't great, only had a hob and a microwave with heating element, but to be honest we did little cooking as eating out in the resort was fairly cheap. Had no experiences of insects (did have a few ants wandering around but we probably attracted them due to lack of cleaning). Rooms were cleaned about 3 times I think, had no problems with thefts or anything, but the price for the safe was a bit steep and we thought it was very stingy to not offer it for free.
The only bad point would be the older man on the front desk, he was very rude and arrogant so we avoided him mostly, the other staff were all fine and the reps really got involved with the entertainment.
Lastly we did see a few families around, and in my opinion I would not recommend these apartments nor anywhere in Palma Nova or Magaluf for families with young kids, as it was dominated by groups of the same age as us (18&19 years old). Don't come here expecting peace and quiet 24/7, as it's only 10-15 minutes away from the all the nightclubs, so noise is to be expected.
All in all, a great place :)

We booked to stay here for 2 weeks.......ended staying here for 3 days!!!! The rooms are full of ants!!! Plaster was cracked all around the doors and more falling off each day!!! Sofa bed is like sleeping on concrete!! We went half board which we didnt eat as the food is horrible only had about 3 different choices! When we booked we were told it was a top family hotel and I think there was about 4 familys in total staying there which ment it was only are 2 kids in the kids club. The girls who run the kids club are fantastic and did do everything to make are childrens holiday fun. Around the pool is like an ice skating rink so be careful walking around after getting out the pool. The only thing I would say about this hotel is that the location is brilliant but aprt from that I do not have anything good to say about it APART FROM the first choice staff in the hotel we helped us with our transfer.

Stayed at Aquasol in May 2010 and had great time,we had a one bed apartment which meant my partner and one of the kids slept on sofa beds which were a little hard(will book 2 bedroom next time) had garden view apartment which was lovely views and very quiet,went self catering so only ate at snack bar which was quite expensive,found the supermarkets to be very expensive so ate out most nights,Florida was good value as was pirates on Magalluf beach we went between after 7 and got free sangria with meal,so would go back to aquasol had nice pool and good evening entertainement.

Fantastic from start to finish! Its close to the beach and is perfect for couples with young children. The beach is amazing. Palma Nova was fabulous.

We spent 10 days here in may 2010, it has been refurbished nicely but the ants in the apartment were a pain in the behind. We had to keep all foodstuffs in the fridge as it was the only place they couldn't get into, even the kettle wasn't safe! We tended to leave cups & glasses in the sink in water as they would need washing again before we used them. Bear in mind we were on the top floor. Also, there are no lifts whatsoever so carting luggage & pushchairs is hard work! We have been going to Palmanova for many years now & stayed in lots of different apartments & hotels, but never have we come across ants like this before.
The only other gripe is the sunbeds, they are the ones without a backrest, I realise these are the cheapest to buy but I have a back problem so I had to have a chair for some of the time. This may not be important but thought I would point it out for anyone else booking.
On the whole we had a nice time, the outside bar is open all day serving drinks & snacks which were not bad atall.
The pool area is kept clean, it is hosed down every evening.
The satff were friendly & cleaners came in to us mon, weds & friday with clean towels.
Having stayed in other apartments we probably would not return here.

Booked a week here and got caught up in the volcanic ash problems so were stuck here for two weeks. Location great as only couple minutes walk to beach. Most importantly for anyone going here, there is a big local supermarket 2mins away which is much cheaper than paying inflated prices in hotel. Just come out of hotel, walk along road to left until the road turns off to the left and up the hill towards a little shopping complex. Apartment was clean enough and basic with toaster and kettle but we were happy enough. Cleaners came every second day. Food was pretty basic but worst thing was that it was always lukewarm - didnt matter whether you went down early for dinner or breakfast, the food was a hit or miss as to how hot it was - there was a microwave to heat your meals up but thats not what you wanted to do after paying for half board. Menu was rubbish at wkend but got slightly better as week went on. It is the SAME menu each week though so 2wks of this was not good. Wine available to purchase with dinner but it was on sale for less than half the price in the local supermarket! Ate out a couple of times and there are lots of deals for 3course meals at various places for approx 10-15 Euros. There was a kids club and activities during the day which seemed to be fairly popular. At night the major problem was that in the main area where the entertainment took place, each table had an ashtray which meant everybody was smoking. What I couldnt believe was the fact that this was going on whilst the evening kids club was on - all those little kids were inhaling other peoples smoke and this continued for the rest of the evening whilst the bingo and entertainment were on. Unfortunately this completely spoiled our holiday as the one night we did spend watching the entertainment, we were overwhelmed with the smoke in the room and we had to hang our clothes out on the balcony overnight to get rid of the smell of smoke! Again, there was no let up whilst going down to breakfast and dinner - there were always people sitting so close to the main door going through to reception (instead of sitting near the open doors to the pool) that it almost felt like you were running the guantlet each time. We were located in the main reception block and above the entertainment area which was fairly noisy whilst the entertainment was on. Think that familes were located in the other blocks away from the reception. The reception staff were reasonably helpful and we didnt have any issues there. TV channels are available at 3Euros per day (with a 5Euro deposit) or 15Euros for a week - you only get BBC1 and Channel 5 otherwise. Bar prices at hotel were fairly expensive when there are lots of local bars nearby doing much better deals. Unfortunately this is not a hotel that we will be returning to specifically because it seemed to be a smokers paradise!
