Best place to stay - Palma Nova or Magaluf

I am aiming to go to Mallorca in August with a couple of people.

Can anyone recommend where is the best place to stay if you want to be near the nightlife. Is Palma Nova the liveliest or is Magaluf.

Went to Torremolinos (Costa Del Sol) in April this year, thinking that Torremolinos was the most liveliest of places along the costa del sol, this did not turn out to be the case.

Info would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

magaluf is by far the busiest in august it will be mad we allways stay in palma nova ,the reason we are near enough to walk into magaluf for the nite life but when we are wrecked we go back to our place in palma nova were it is quiet enough to get some sleep.

we only once stayed in magaluf in august and found it was to noisy for us

Magaluf, is better for the busy nightlife. Plama Nova has nightlife but more relaxed atmosphere. We stayed in palma nova, overlooking a lovely beach, you can walk along into magaluf, bars everywhere, there is a very busy main street shich was quite hetic.

A ten minute or so walk to get to Magaluf, all depending on where your staying, probably double to get back!!

The resorts practiacally merge in to each other.

I'd say the sensible option was to stay in Palma Nova and party in Magaluf, the hotels around BCM square can't get much peace until dawn.

Well MIGSY1.......

I think everyone has summed it up beautifully...

Magalluf is the busiest resort by far,and if you're not bothered at the possibility(or should I say probability) of NOT getting any sleep(apart from around the pool or on the beach), then Magaullf is great to stay in..................

But if I were going out there in August(mad season time)lol..... then I would have no hesitation in staying in Palma Nova to escape after my night out so I could get a good mornings sleep...Well you didn't expect me to say night did you?lol..

So bottom line is this.....

Want to party all night and not bother about getting sleep in your room? Magalluf!!

If you do want sleep in your room then Palma Nova!!

Have fun making your mind up...........

Boltonlass.............

It all depends on what you want?

Cheap and cheerful,as all I want is a bed?

Or do you want meals included(half board or bed & breakfast)?

I have checked your profile......FEMALE..lol..But what age are you? 18ish?

Come back on with the info that we need and maybe we can advise for you?

So to recap...........

What board you want to stay on?

How long do you want to stay?

Do you want to share a room?

Is price a key factor..in other words you want as cheap as possible or not?

And what date do you arrive and then leave?

Hope I have covered everything and now it's over to you? lol..lol.

Are there no travel agents in Bolton?lol...lol..

Get back soon and I'll see what I can do?
