“Little gem ! Midlands gang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

We stated here in October for four days a group of 6 girls . We arrived early and our apartments weren't ready but staff offered us rooms in the garbedor sister hotel which is where you eat and book in . Rooms were spacious and cleaned every day fresh towels etc . Have to say this is the friendliest hotel I've ever stayed in staff are amazing and can't do enough for you it's about 5 min walk to the beach and bars , restaurants. Magaluf is about a 30 min walk. Christine cooks breakfast and without a doubt is the funniest Irish woman we have ever met really made our stay fantastic ! Would def stay here again well done Martinez x

We needed a short cheap break at the last minute and I booked this entirely based on the reviews I had read on Tripadvisor. I was not expecting much and were only staying for 4 nights so just needed a base really. These apartments far exceeded our expectations, they were extremely spacious and spotlessly clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful. What a fantastic find. The bar is open 24/7 and the prices are very reasonable, we used the snack bar one dinnertime and the food was good and again very reasonably priced. When we book again we will go self catering as you had to queue up for a while for breakfast and there was everything provided in your apartment to cook for yourself or it was cheap enough to eat out. We walked into Magaluf on the first 3 days which took about 30 minutes and on our last day walked in the other direction to Portal Nous harbour (again about 30 mins), to see how the other half live. If you are interested in boats don't miss this place, it beats Palma harbour for quality boats. All in all we had a fantastic break and will definitely return for a short stay. Do not expect luxury because you are not paying luxury prices but this has everything you need for an enjoyable break.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the block you will get the sun on the balcony all day

I went with my husband in September to the Martinez, the actual apartments were very basic, and was dissapointed by the awful view we had, of a room with lots of shoes thrown onto it, obviously by people who had stayed in the apartments before us. To the side of us where private apartments which were quite scruffy, and in between the view of a main road. Our hotel had a sister hotel the Gabarda just around the corner which we had to go to for our breakfast, you had to tell the receptionist if you wanted your breakfast and she would give you a ticket, then you would present this ticket to Christine the cook, who cooked the breakfast as you waited, she would then shout your name for you to get it, after you have finished you had to clear your own plates and stack them. Just reminded me of being in school..... The pool was not much bigger than my bath at home, although for 3 days me and my husband had the pool to ourselves, then a party of 14 women came and took over the pool, as there was now no sunbeds....The Martinez was only a 5 min walk from the beach area and restaurants, but for entertainment you would have had to go further, we used to even jump a taxi up to Fountains Bar in Magaluf for entertainment. I recomment though Natalies Restaurant which was not far from the Martinez on the beach front. The two British receptionists where very helpful. We did however have ants in our room, also when we first arrived we found lots of dried blood outside our room, this however was removed after a cleaner seen it.

Just returned from a 2 night weekend stay at the Martinez Apartments. Our party of 3 woman were really impressed with what we found when we arrived.

Martinez Apartments are situated in a residential area along with the sister Hotel Gabarda, just around the corner. It's really quiet so is fantastic. You are close enough to the fun of Magaluf (€6 in a taxi and 5 min drive) but far enough away for peace in the daytime!!

This hotel has everything you need for a few days in the sun! The pool is small but we never struggled for a sun lounger and were often the only ones around the pool anyway! The thing that strikes you about this place is what you get for your money:

Free Wifi ( in both hotels), aircon in the room (€20 deposit for the remote), 24 hour bar (sister hotel), use of facilities at both hotels, spotlessly clean, late check out if needed (€20), food on sale 24 hours, friendly helpful staff, pool open til 9pm, vending machines in both hotels.

We'd definitely go back here again - I've no idea why it is so cheap or why it hasn't got the 3* or 4* eating it deserves?

The two British ladies; Adele and Tanya on reception are so friendly and would do anything to ensure you have a good stay. They could teach a lot of hotels about good customer service.

No complaints, it was a really nice place to stay.

Further to our previous visit and because we have friends living close to these apartments,we chose to return for a longer break ( 2. Weeks) and were not disappointed.
This time we opted for an apartment on the first floor( remember no Lifts in these apartments).

The layout was identical and so we felt immediately "at home" once the booking-in with Adele at the nearby Gabarda Hotel..

Prior to our booking we looked at other TA reviews and noted they were for the most part very complimentary
Hopefully this review will also be seen as complimentary and positive.

The apartments cater for all ages and tastes (Hen/stag parties included) and all seem to blend together well.
Clean Towels every two days and linen changed each week.A special thanks to the considerate and efficient ladies who cleaned and changed the linen.... a job well done .

The only complaint we heard was that there was a queue for breakfast when everybody arrived at the Breakfast bar area at the same time.
With one person only, cooking to order, this would not be surprising and many of those same complainants( "mostly middle-aged gentlemen reliving their past perhaps?.) found plenty of time to queue at the adjacent bar for their "Breakfast Beers and similar Alcohol refreshments".

There are no major changes to this value for money accommodation and it seems all the staff are as attentive and hospitable as on our previous visit.
Hopefully when we visit Palma Nova next we will be able to re-book at the Martinez Apartments

Me and my wife stayed here for 7 nights and i can say that the Martinez apartments are great choice. They are nice,clean and specious two room apartments cleaned every two day.Breakfast is served from 9 am to 11 am. You have five choices for breakfast and if you go around 10:15 to 10:30 you need to wait for around 15 minutes because there are a lot of people that are waiting for their breakfast.I am very satisfied with the apartment and i can recommend to everyone who wants not so expensive accommodation in Palmanova. The location is very quiet and the apartments are on the start of the first beach at Palmanova, just 5 minutes from the beach, but it's about 35-40 minutes walking to Magaluf. The apartements are equipped with refrigerator,toast, basic kitchen utensils, hotplate but there is no oven.

Room Tip: Kindergarten is very close so sometimes you can not sleep in the morning. Pool view is greater choic...
