disappointing start to our 4 night stay,when we checked in to be told that they were overbooked & we had to go to the hotel across the road (don bigote) when we did get in to the panama next morning what a difference, room was spacious with 2 double beds, a/c, fridge, tv, & big balcony, food was a great choice & always piping hot, bar was self service & always well stocked,staff were 1st class,hotel was maybe a bit dated but was spotless & will be 1st choice when i return to the beautiful isle of mallorca, salud,

We stayed at the Ola Club panama for a week in June 2013. When we arrived we thought the room was a bit basic but everything we needed was there.

The food gave plenty of choice and we all managed to find something that we liked. Pasta, meat dishes, fish dishes, chicken dishes, paella plus salad, desserts .

The all inclusive really is all inclusive. The snack/drinks area is open from 11am til 11pm and the alcohol is self service even the vodka, bacardi, whisky etc they were local ones but tasted absolutely fine. There are crisps, nuts, sandwiches, snacks, icecream fruit juices (even tomato if you like Bloody Mary's), Coke, diet coke, sprite, Fanta lemon, fanta orange. Red/White/Rose wine on tap - just help yourself. Local lager also on draught which I quite liked too.
As all the spirits and juices are self service its very easy to do your own cocktails. take a list with you before you go :)

Airconditioning is free but you have to pay a 10 euro deposit at reception for the remote. You get the 10 euros back when you return the remote.

The beach is about a 200 yard walk away on the flat so its very close. The sunbeds on the beach are E4.50 each plus E4.50 for the umbrella! so E13.50 if you want them so be warned!

On the beach there are Watersports which include parasailing and a banana boat. If you pay on the beach, the parasailing is E35 each but, on the beach they told me that if you buy them at Club Panama, you can get it for E20 for both! The Watersports people told me that as its connected to the panama in some way. We didnt find out until our last day so we werent able to do it :(

I've read a few reviews and for anyone complaining that the pool is smaller than the photo, who cares? yes its smaller than the picture but its big enough and has a small pool for children.

The entertainment team were absolutely fantastic. They didnt stop all day. They played games with the kids, treasure hunts etc and the kids loved it. They also put on some very good shows at night too.

I would recommend this hotel :D

Stayed here in May13 there were 13 of us. The rooms were very clean, the food was nice but not a big range of food. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk if that and there is a supermarket if you turn right out the hotel behind the sports bar. There is a sun lounge on top of the Hotel if you want 5 minutes peace. The beach is very clean and you tidy.

Stayed here for 5 days in June. The hotel is on all inclusive and the food was always hot and plenty to choose from. The bar is help yourself and didn't run out of any drinks, also has crisps nuts and sandwich's at bar.
The pool is lovely, with a proper deep end, ladders to enter the pool, no steps.
The hotel is a 4 minute walk to Palma nova beach, white is stunning white sand all kept immaculately clean. A slow walk along the prom will have you in Magaluff in about 15 mins. This hotel for the price they charge will be very hard to beat.

After reading many reviews I went ahead and booked 8 nights at this hotel.
We arrived around 1.30 in the morning using A2B transfers which given the time of our arrival check in for our coach was very slow taking a good 2hours from landing to arriving at the hotel.
One thing I woiuld like to make people aware of when booking transfers is if you land after midnight then your transfer date should be for the following day and not the day you flew from the Uk ( given the time difference). One of the travel companies whose name escapes me have been making this mistake and you will have to take a taxi and claim the cost back from them.
I can say that it was not OLa Holidays they were spot on with our documentation.
On arrival we were greated by a very nice man and told where our rooms were, unfortunitely everything was closed so we were unable to have a drink of any sort.
On arriving at our rooms we were very pleased with the size and condition and could find no fault at all.
Both the rooms had two double beds and there was still plenty of room to move around. Down side aircon is swtiched on in July or in exceptionally hot weather. Not too much bother as we kept our balcony door open but I would not want to do this if I had children.
However due to the street noise from other holiday makers coming back in the wee hours of the morning it could be quite noisy, but the hotel did have a member of staff outside monitoring this.
The following day just got better and better, the restaurant staff were all extremely friendly and the food was good and there was always something you could find to eat. There were soft drinks, wine and tea/ coffee available with your meals.
The dining room could get noisy, but you can not apportion blame to the hotel as it was the guest chatting.It was also cool in the restaurant.
If you have very young children there is a microwave you can use to warm there baby food or like me porridge. How sad am I! Just make sure it is on microwave and not combi when you use it.
The pool area was always clean and tidy along with the pool toilets. The staff work very hard in keeping it clean and I would like to ask you to pick up your cups and plates if you use the snack bar and place them in the bins provided, the staff were not employed to be your slaves for the week.
The snack bar is open from 11am -11pm and it is self service both for food and all drinks including alcholic.At first we thought that this might be a problem with people drinking to excess but we found it to be just the opposite.
The annimation team work 12 hours a day 6 days a week, and are a great bunch of people, so please try and join in occassionally.
Generally there was no problem in getting a sunbed but maybe in the high session it could be, again but that is not the fault of the hotel but the guests staying there.
There is plenty of shade if you want it, or if you like the sun go and sit near the childrens pool where you will get the sun all day.
The hotel is a five minute walk to the shops, beach and a lovely childrens playground.
If you want to walk to Magalluf it will take about 15 minute stroll.From the hotel take a left and the T junction turn left and walk for about 10 minutes you will then see the Santander bank on your right and if you look towards your left at the mini roundabout you will see the Eastenders bar which is recommended, however we did not go in so I cannot say what it is like. When you reach the Santander bank walk up the road a little way and on your left you will see a pedestrian walkway there are some lovely shops and a fantastic bag shop on your right.
Overall we all had a lovely time, the only downside would be if you have mobility problems as we did not see any ramps and I have included a picture of the steps you would encounter to get in and out of the hotel.
Fantastic hotel can't wait to see the lipdup june 2013 on you tube, will be back.

this was a very pleasant surprise,as not sure what to expect, always go to 4/5 star hotels but was taking my grandaughter (6) so needed childrens club and be near beach. Location was perfect as about 100 yards to beach,shops and bars. hotel looked a little tired, but clean and very large room,with double bed and good size sofa bed and safe balcony.
Food was fine always hot, drinks all inclusive and serve yourself,which worked very well, nobody getting drunk or out of order.
Fantastic animation team, for children and adults,not pushy, very well organised and worked very hard to make everyone happy. good for all ages,my grandaughter loved it and can't wait to go back
