This is an all-round good hotel but it does have some negatives. When me and my sister (aged 29 and 21) booked in to join our parents (in their 60s) who were already there, we were allocated one of the 'sub-standard' rooms on the side. It became clear that this is because we were 'youngsters' compared to most of the over-50s the hotel. The first room we were given was really small and needed updating. There was no balcony and it was dark because the window was obscured by trees outside it. The bathroom was really small and dingy. The room backed on to an 80s bar which blared out music late at night and some of the other guests on a hen party came back in the early hours and - in this 'youngsters' corridor - went about screaming and talking loudly outside their rooms. My mother, who had booked the room for us, complained and the next day we were given another room in the main part of the hotel. This room was superb and it's a shame that the hotel didn't think that my sister and I deserved this in the first place because we were young (and probably unlikely to complain). The room we were given instead had a sea-view with a beautiful balcony, a large room with plenty of room and an arm chair (with foot rest!) and a lovely marble bathroom that you would expect to find in a 4* hotel. Some of the other reviews about the sun-bed hoggers are correct. We saw people putting towels down at 5.45am!! Our family had to sit on tables and chairs next to the pool when we were there for just two hours because some people had 'reserved' sun beds - while we were there we never saw anyone sit on them which just proved that we could have sat on their sun beds while they went to lunch or whatever, and still have been gone by the time they get back. The hotel needs to take action about this. The food was ok, not my style and limited for a vegetarian unless you eat fish. One cheese pizza slice I ate had ham hidden under the cheese! There was good variety and the 'chef's theatre', where they will cook the food in front of you was a great touch. The staff were pretty friendly, especially the waiters and the room cleaners, but the reception staff could do better. The entertainment in the hotel was a bit hit and miss. But it's in a great location if you want to get to the beach, and other restaurants/shops that you would normally find in a resort like this. There are lots of Brits around Palma Nova and it aint classy but it's good for a beach holiday.
