Villa nova......where do i start? Positive was that there was a lovely cleaner who was around everyday cleaning the room. The safe key can be bought with 30 euro deposit which you get back at the end of the week. Thats all I can think of. Negatives, there is no reception, just the bar and shop downstairs, and when you speak to one person they send you to another and so on and so on. The rooms have no air con. just a small fan which makes no difference to the room, so be prepared to not sleep due to the room begin too hot and sticky. The room is very very basic, and each room varies. The rooms have a balcony, but each faces another rooms balcony, so when you sit at your balcony its 10ft from another room. You get 5 mins hot water in the morning so be prepared to have a cold shower each day. There is no pool, but the beach is just over the road. It looks nothing like in the photo graphs. I would never stay here again.

The hotel is perfectly situated close to the beach and the main street. The pool area and garden is very nice and well kept. The rooms are old and not very trendy, but fine and our room was cleaned every day by the sweetest maid. The only bad thing I have to say is that the entertainment every night (kids disko, bingo, quiz, Elvis...) was too noisy, when you are travelling with a small child.

Upon arrival, there was no reception area so we went to the Kompas bar downstairs a man gave us the keys and we were told someone would come and see us later. We went upstairs to find the room already open probably being aired from the smell. We had read some bad reports but did not think anything could be that bad.The room resembeled a squat. The kitchen had a curtain for a door the sink in the toilet was hanging off, you would have to be twiggy to fit in the shower which had some sort of pipe which could not be adjusted, the water in the shower did not drain away if we wanted to go for a paddle we would have gone to the lovely beach across the road. The beds were like itchy camp beds and full of fleas, the maids did not turn up, so by day 3 we went downstairs to ask if the sheets could be changed and if we could have more toiled rolls, only to be told as we were self catering we would have to buy our own, and the maid still never turned up for the whole week. We also had a couple of unpaid guests larry the lizard and sid the slug we think it was the lizards dinner. When we returned from evenings out you would need either a miners hat or a torch to make you way up the stairs as there is no stairwell lighting. Overall Villa Nova apartments is not a nice place to stay, so the people who have given good reviews about this place must be refugees.
We have been to Palma Nova itself before and it is a nice quiet resort with lots of bars and restuarants all at affordable prices. We would definatly go back to Palma Nova but NEVER EVER VILLANOVA APARTMENTS OR SHOULD I SAY VILLANNOVA SQUAT......!!!!!
WE WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS NOT EVEN TO OUR WORST ENEMIES

Ok, I did not expect God knows what... Having collected keys from the pub (it seems like the "Kompas" pub owner also manages rooms in Villanova) and opened the door I was simply shocked. The room was like from the mid 80'. Bed clothes was stinking with some stains and I do not want to mention what kind of stains they were. Bathroom with dirty shower curtain and a some kind of pipe over head as a shower. You could not even adjust it. Boiler was a tank so hot water was there for up to 12 minutes and then you had to wait an hour to have the tank full. Almost impossible for two people to have a shower one after another.
Kitchen with the gas cooker (useless as the gas bottle was unusable- empty or something), small fridge and limited number of plates, cups and pans. Our gas bottle was empty so we could not use the cooker to cook some ready meals and therefore had to eat in restaurants.
We stayed there for a week. There is no reception, rooms are not being cleaned. Forget about clean towels and supply of toilet rolls (you get one at the beginning and that's it). Difficult to find a rep as if not in the season- the pub is closed almost all the time. Telephone numbers provided for emergency are there I think just to make a good impression. No one ever answers on the other side. After three days of our stay I went downstairs having traced this English bloke and kindly asked him for fresh towels and rubbish to be collected. I said- "do not worry about the toilet paper as we bought our own". Next thing in the morning we had new towels, new toilet rolls and rubbish collected which was a good thing. There is a heater and the fan in the room as well as a small boom box if you want to listen to the radio. Nice balcony with the table and chair. Unfortunately- ours without the light.
I came up with the conclusion: If you are young and came to Mallorca to get pissed (loads of English owned pubs around with sky sports etc.) and only looking for some cheap accommodation to sleep for couple of hours, wash your teeth and get pissed again, then Villa nova is fine. For us (couple 24, 25) the standard was widely too poor. We paid over £100.00 for six nights for two of us which was not bad but when sober- we were disgusted to use their facilities, cover with their bed linen etc.

Location of Villanova is great. It is vis-a-vis a good palmanova beach. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and pubs around. It is close to Magaluf for even more lively resort to chill out. Palma is just 15min drive from there. Renting a car is highly recommended.
Mallorca itself is brilliant place. We drove the island throughout and seen everything what we could. But we have deliberately avoided our accommodation and wanted to come there as late as possible only to have some sleep, have a shower and get out as early as possible in the morning. This however did not make our holiday bad. I do not complain but for God's sake- more professionalism is required form the owners of Villanova.
How could they call their (--) "apartments"? It remains unknown.
