“Palmanova palace not quite a place”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

First of all the hotel was very nice inside and clean and the pool area was nice oh thou parts of it was in the shade and the sunbed scum was crazy, people were camping out on deck chairs from 7am until they was unchained at 9am, there was a rule about not putting towels on sunbeds but this was no enforced. The maid service was very good and the rooms were cleaned every day and left fresh towels every day, the bar service was also good apart from the odd one barman who was a bit abrupt, the all inclusive service was very basic, snacks were very poor, breakfast was fine if you wanted a fry up every morning, cereal choice was poor only 3 cereals and they was museil, cornflakes and sugar puffs, lunch was fine if you wanted a hot buffet meal in the middle of the day but the salad was poor, dinner was pretty much silmar to lunch, deserts were very stodgy. Anyway we enjoyed our stay at the palma nova palace but wouldn't stay there again as we found the all inclusive food side of things poor, we ate out twice just to avoid the same old food, if your looking for a quiet break away it is not really the palace as the hotel does let large groups of young lads/women stay there.

Room Tip: Email the hotel and ask for a pool view

We booked this hotel on the strength of the reviews saying how quiet and peaceful it was. How wrong can people be? There was at least three groups of single sex hen and stag people. The first two nights we had a hen group on our corridor and next door to us( no sleep) the third night young men arrived to replace the girls. Loud shouting, swearing and drunkenness and all that goes with it. We asked to move and they obliged. I don't mind people having fun but there was just no respect for other guests when these idiots came back from their evening out in Magaluf. My advice is don't book this if you are a couple over 30 and want a peaceful holiday. Nice hotel but ruined by a minority

Just got back from a 10 day stay at Palmonova Palace all inclusive
i went as a couple both 19 so didn't have high expectations of the hotel only really wanting a decent place to sleep and go out for and was really surprised at how good it was,
some staff stood out more than others and were very nice 1 or 2 others it wouldn't hurt to crack a smile.
food was standard, something for everyone like chips and burgers for picky people
only thing i had to complain about was the entertainment, it really was crap the whole time, maybe go and invest in some more shows at night.
great hotel and would deff go with a big group of friends with all inclusive!

Room Tip: the higher the level the less noise you should hear

if you prefer a hotel where there are groups, young people, families and is located between Palmanova and Magaluf, in an area distinguished for its nightlife, we will recomend you Hi Hotel Honolulu.
We appreciate your opinion about the entertaiment and will continue to work hard on it.

This hotel disappoints on a number of levels. Firstly, the food can best be described as hit and miss. Sometimes it was ok, other times it was pretty poor. Most people we spook to where of the same opinion. It was very repetitive and for the most part overcooked. The fish and the vegetables in particular where cooked within an inch of their lives, ok if you like your food served as mush. The noise level in the hotel made a good night’s sleep almost impossible, door banging at shouting being the norm. This was partly due to the 18 - 30 nature of a lot of the guests. Nothing against young people enjoying themselves, however, not when I was looking for a relaxing holiday. Even had a visit from the Guardia to the hotel due to the shenanigans of some guests. Entertainment was dire to say the least and finally the pool area is not the best and my wife and I opted for the beach. Finally, the best thing about the hotel is the staff, who are friendly and hardworking. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday with good food, then give this hotel a miss. If you are looking for a lively holiday, don't mind not sleeping and are not particularly fussy about what you eat, then this will suit you fine. I for one will not be back.
