We had a fantastic week staying at Villa Magnolia. The villa was very clean, comfortable and spacious, with everything you would expect in a rental property. There was lots of storage space in the bedrooms and lots of hangers in the wardrobes, something often lacking.
The showers were surprisingly good - they weren't much to look at - and it was possible to use both showers simultaneously without any loss of pressure/heat. This was a great help with everyone getting ready for dinner in the evening. It was good to have a change of towels midweek as we were having lots of showers with going to the beach every day!
We didn't use the kitchen much (we ate out every evening) but there was plenty of crockery/glasses for breakfast and drinks, so we hardly had to use the dishwasher. The balcony was perfect for breakfast as the sun came up on that side of the house, and provided great views towards the town.
The WiFi was very reliable: we didn't use the TV or stereo.
The pool was nice to look at but very cold (we knew it wasn't heated) and, as the sea was actually warmer, we didn't use it much.
The hill is pretty steep as other reviews mentioned, but we didn't find it a problem - it helped us burn off the many ice creams we had!! The views as a result were worth it. It was also quiet as we were out of the town, and on a clear night, the stars were beautiful as there was little light pollution.
It might be because we were there in the last week of the season, but we didn't find a proper supermarket in Cala Galdana, so had to drive to the next town to a Lidl to stock up.
Irene was very helpful in the lead up to our stay, answering questions promptly and providing useful information. We really appreciated being able to use the villa until the afternoon of our departure as we had an evening flight (as there was no-one else using it after us).
We would heartily recommend Villa Magnolia for a relaxing beach holiday.
Really enjoyed staying at the villa (the left-hand one of the two). We (a family of 4), stayed for 10 nights in July 2015. When we arrived, the property reps were very friendly and showed us around the villa. The property was very clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. There was a problem with our air con on the second day (probably due to the weather having been extremely hot), but the reps came over very quickly, and it was fixed by a technician the following morning, so we were impressed with the speed of the service. The reps respond promptly via email, phone or text (also available on WhatsApp!) if you have any questions or concerns. The pool was absolutely lovely (very warm!) and is in the sun throughout the day. It was cleaned twice during our stay. The villa is up a fairly steep hill from the centre of Cala Galdana, but it's good to be slightly out of the centre. The Cala Galdana beach is absolutely beautiful and there are various bars and restaurants. There are a couple of small 'supermarkets', but they are quite expensive; for larger, cheaper supermarkets you need a car.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in the villa, with the pool being the highlight.
We had a great week in Villa Magnolia. Juan and Irene very friendly and very helpful when asked. Good selection of restaurants within walking distance. Be aware that there is a good hill on return journey. Fornells worth a drive, also Cuitadella. Mahon was swamped with cruise ship visitors.
We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Magnolia. The Villa was perfectly clean and has absolutely anything that you could possibly need. The pool was lovely and there is plenty of sunloungers for sunbathing. Cala Galdana is a beautiful and quiet resort perfect for families with young kids. We would really love to go back next year!
