Ranked #15 of 38 Hotels in Palmanova
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Arrived back on Saturday 11th of August after an 11 day stay at the Palma Nova Hotel
Having read previous reviews leading up to my holiday i was very concerned to what type of Hotel me and my wife and daughter aged 16 were coming to
I spoke with the Thomas Cook people on the phone couple of days before departure but they would not listen to my concerns of stag/hen parties running riot within the hotel and stated they do not pay any attention to web sites with peoples comments.
Anyway we arrived to be given a room on the fifth floor with a pool/sea view which was a pleasent
view to look out at-The room was basic but clean to which the maid cleaned and changed towels everyday.
Yes the walls are paper thin as you can hear people chatting in the next room but that was mainly at night time and only lasted for a short time
Food was o/k-Various choices to chose from but you had at lunchtime have to get your drinks at the pool bar and then walk to the dining area where at Dinner the pool bar closed and you then got them from an inside bar at the entertainment area.
Entertainment was poor the people tried their best but working in an inside area without the airconon it made this area very uncomfortable hence reason people went outside to the pool area
to chat and have a drink-Again problem was then no poolside bar open you then had to go into the sauna get your drinks and then take them outside
My concern over the stag/hen parties did not happen during our stay but yes they were there in previous weeks due to some special radio 1 shows going on in Magulf
Sunbeds as every one has pointed out is a problem with people having to but Lido to then lie on a concrete floor to sunbathe
One plus side was the location in Palma Nova-At the quiet end next to Fantasia Golf
Overall we had an enjoyable holiday

Room Tip: Floors 5.6.7-All giving you a good view of the pool area and sea view

Well, I had read the reviews on here and was expecting a bit of a nightmare. However, we had no problems whatsoever. The location is brilliant. Hotel was clean. Food was lovely with a really good selection - always salad, cold meats and chips if you didnt fancy anything else. Entertainment staff brilliant, not pushy at all and the entertainment was just there if you wanted it. Rooms perfectly adequate, remember this is 3 star.

In response to all the moaning on here:
Sunbeds - still available at 8am after that you might struggle but this is no different to anywhere else.
Rude staff - nope. Everyone nice.
Thin walls - didnt cause us a problem
Big groups of stags and hens - none

We travelled as a family of 5, kids aged 15,16 and 9. Something for everyone. We would definately go back - loved it!

A good quality hotel, very happy with the price. Despite the previous reviews of this hotel droning on about 'decor', 'sunbeds' and 'food' let me remind you this is a 3 star hotel, if you want to be a snob and comment on which plants they should have in the lobby go to a 5 star.

On a previous review it mentioned that after checkin, you are given a slip of paper, a wrist tag and basically 'left to fend for yourself' which is totally correct, this is a hotel not a care home, nobody knocks on your door at 8am, dresses you and holds your hand down to breakfast. Providing you are a reasonably responsibe adult you such be able to complete the most basic of tasks such a dressing yourself, cleaning yourself and feeding yourself without any intervention.

With that said the hotel is cleaned each day inside and out by a team of dedicated staff, who I saw every morning as I went down to breakfast.
The room was cleaned each day and beds made to a good standard and towels where changed. There was a TV in the room but i didn't come on holiday to sit in the room and watch TV.
WiFi in the hotel is fast but you have to pay, there is free WiFi on the beach.

Nothing was stolen from my room so never had dealings with the staff but they all seemed friendly enough, there was an earlier review that suggested bar staff should ask you for your life story whilst servings your drinks, this is a bad idea because I don't care at all about what the person infront has to say and I just want to hurry up and get my drinks and enjoy them.

Regarding the measures of alcohol in the all-inclusive drinks, people moaning thats its too much spirit to drink ratio but still go ahead and drink it anyway and then complain. Well im sure you're all responsible adults i'm sure and if you dont want a drink thats 3/4 vodka and 1/4 coke then open your mouth and tell the guy and he'll make you a new one. Simple.

Yes there is not many sunbeds for the hotel which is why there are loads of signs around asking you not to reserve sunbeds but as you'll soon notice is that most rules are broken by the british holiday makers anyway. If you want a sunbed go down at 5am like a saddo and reserve about 14 sunbeds and 3 parasols. The 6 sunbeds for your kids, who will play in the pool all day and not use them once, the other 4 for your book to rest on, 1 for your food and the other 3 for yourself, make sure you use the parasols to keep your sunbeds cool whilst your go out for about 5 hours because nobody wants to come back warm sunbeds. For added effect make sure you come back hungry, thirsty and your kids are proper warm and hyperactive and wish to jump in the pool about 20 million times to cool themselves down, make sure you current hunger and thirst levels are known to everyone within a 20m radius whilst you sit under your cool shade and everyone bakes in the sun cause you reserved all the parasols.

Alternatively, if you don't manage to get sunbeds when you come down at a reasonable time and see sunbeds reserved with no-one on them for a few hours, throw their towels in the pool and because you're an adult, when they come back and start gobbing off, use your mouth and remind them that sunbeds are a courtesy of the hotel are not to be reserved.

Whilst I stayed at this hotel the food provided was excellent, more than what I expected from a 3 star hotel. They had themed nights and snacks throughout the day to stuff your face with.
A previous reviewer mentioned the fact that her son was not eating healthly because they served burger and chips everyday and thats all he ate. We'll if your a responsible parent make sure your child eats healthly, theres more than enough salad, fruit and healthy options. It isn't the hotels fault you can't be bothered to supervise what your child eats.
And if the decor in the dining room offends you, go to a 5 star hotel...

The chefs work hard making sure theres more than enough food to pile high on your plate and the restaurant staff work hard clearing all the half empty plates and turning around the table to allow another family of hungry holidaymakers to sit down.

The entertainers work hard with the entertainment throughout the day is mainly aimed for keeping the kids active and out of the way of their parents (hence children DON'T NEED TO BE RESERVED A SUNBED). These can include activities such as pistol shootings, mini golf and water polo . Watch out when they are playing water polo as you don't tend to find many water polo champions staying at this hotel and as a result the ball flies everywhere, including in your face.
The entertainment during the night is for families to enjoy things like disco and fancy dress etc... again if you don't like the entertainment go play mini golf which is nearby, or go somewhere else.

There were no loud families staying during my visit and as a result of this, I managed to sleep very well. If the thought of the smallish room and lack of decoration bothers you, go to a 5 star or alternatively save money by closing your eyes and going to sleep.

However, with two small lifts serving the whole hotel, you could be waiting a while for a lift to take you up to your 7th floor room as they are generally hogged by the family of 9 staying on the first floor to go down 1 floor.

Definetely recommend this hotel and shall be returning, great location near the beach and near to Palmanova, lots of shops nearby and lots of sun.

So all in all, if you can speak for yourself, dish out your own food, pour your own drinks and walk you will survive a good holiday.
Finally, I dont think the hotel lets itself down on anything, what lets is down is the people that stay there.

Just got back from a week's Half Board at the Hotel Palmanova. I stupidly left my Kindle in the room when we left this morning - under my pillow as I'd been reading during the night. I called the hotel as soon as I got home to Glasgow (approx 5 hours later) to be told that housekeeping said that there was nothing left in the room. Now I know exactly where I left it and so someone is not telling the truth. I've asked the hotel to speak again to the cleaning staff and they said to ring back tomorrow morning so I'll update this post then.

Apart from this there are good and bad points to the hotel
Bad points are:
VERY thin walls - we did not have one unbroken nights sleep for the whole week.
Sunbeds - everyone else has mentioned them- because it's true, the worst I've ever come across.It could be rectified quite easily by just removing any towels that are put down before 8.30am. If you do manage to get one however the new ones are really comfy.
Lifts - slow and overcrowded,
Air Con - was good in both rooms that we had however there doesn't seem to be any in the indoor public areas. I don't know how anyone could have sat inside at night to watch the entertainment. It was stifling.

Good Points:
Really close to the beach which was lovely and also in the nicest and quietest part of Palma Nova.
Entertainment staff are really enthusiastic but not pushy, if like us, you like to just watch from a distance.
Food was ok - themed nights being the best of the week. Champagne breakfast if you fancy it is a nice touch.

All in all - we're just a bit disappointed. We, like most people, save really hard for our annual holiday and feel a bit let down by the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor pool view to get a sea view - otherwise you're gazing over fields and motor...
