Globales Palmanova Palace
Ranked #24 of 39 Hotels in Palmanova
Reviewed 20 June 2009

The hotel was clean. The room was nice. The buffet restaurant served good food, though often so crowded that you could not get to anything!
The receptionist was a middle-aged English woman and was rudest and most unhelpful receptionist we have ever come across - almost a female Basil Fawlty..!!! There was only one large lounge/bar area - which resembled a working men's club - with a stage at the bottom end of the room and every night bthere was either a karaoke or bingo, or both...! You could not escape it. There was also no waiter service, so to get a drink we had to queue at the bar, and it was not service with a smile. Would not return to this hotel or resort.

I recently returned from staying at this hotel, i was half board, most guest are on all inclusive option. you have to wear a colour wrist band to identify your status.
I had a room on 3rd floor at side which had no real view,(ask for one on a high floor with pool or sea view)..The hotel was clean, room comfortable, I don.t think it merited 4 stars.
It was fairly close to the beach, and fantasy golf. shops cafes
, restaurants,so good location.
meals buffet style, breakfast the same each morning. evening meal had reasonaable choice. all inclusive guests can help themselves to wine with meal, half board guests have to pay, the staff in dining room kept reminding me i had to pay for wine! i was very aware of this fact.
The pool was fairly small, but not too busy. there were sunbeds, but not enough. the pool area officially opened at 10am, guests (all british) were seen to put towels on beds at 8am, although notices up to say this is not allowed.
In evening there was entertainment , but not enough seating available , some guests could see it on tv screens. Trips were available.,The Andratx market was disappointing, prices high.despite bargaining. but port Andratx was nice. The Pirates show was very good. pleasant place to stay if you are not wanting a riotous time

Stayed at the hotel with friends,(5 women) nice clean hotel location is ok.
Downside to hotel is not enough room around the pool area and snacks are served in the hotel restaurant through the day. Good variety of food available we found out the night before we came home that they served Burgers and chips till midnight great if you get hungry after a drink.
We had a good time at the hotel though I wouldn't really recommend it for young couples, it's a bit away from centre of Palma Nova and evening entertainment is aimed at older clientele. There was a variety of entertainment in the hotel both during the day and at night,there was bingo every night and either a quiz or an artist. There was a new rep started while we were there who called himself Carlos Liscous he was great fun.
Palma Nova is really expensive so it was worth going all inclusive although we did still go out of the hotel, for anyone not wanting to really go out of the hotel it is ideal

Overall hotel was great value for money, we stayed all inc',not 4* by any means but spotlessly clean, named alcohol was not all inc* also ice creams, you had to pay for them, service and staff were great and entertainment was pretty good throughout the day and evening, it was a bit more suitable for the elderly,also food was a bit limited on choice,mini bar in room was in fact an empty fridge, but Eroski and Mercadona supermarkets were close by, cheap and good value.If you wanted a beer out of complex there was a bar next to highland licores (can't miss the bright yellow canopies) which had 2 pints of lager for 2.50 euros and out back a no smoking room too as well as large screens for sport etc good food too.

Just returned from the palma nova palace, and to be honest would not return, although we could not fault the staff they were very friendly and helpful.
The food was not suitable for a vegetarian diet as it included a lot of meat in the dishes.
The pool area is far too small and crowded in May, so I wouldn't like to think what it would be like in August. Also there were not enough sunbeds, a lot were broken and needed repairing.
The hotel is in a good location for bars and restaurants and beach, which was fantastic. Our room was very nice, on the eighth floor with a sea view (our room was changed for us) which we were grateful for. Entertainment was not very good, but the staff tried to make it as good as possible.

Just got back from this hotel. It is ok for people over 50. Rooms were ok, maids only made bed and replaced towels. We left empty shampoo wrappers on sink that stayed there for days were not replaced. Entertainment was terrible, one good show in the week, were they could actually sing in tune, the reps tried their hardest but could not sing. Bingo every night and possible quiz. Staff were very miserable and rude at times especially on reception. The high light of our holiday was the pirate show in magaluf, which was excellent once we actually got in as the rep lost our tickets, and kept us waiting outside in the rain until the organisers let us in and up graded our seats. So watch out for Patrick if you go he is the rep that lost the tickets.
Food in the restaurant was cold and sloppy. all the cakes and deserts tasted the same and it was the same every other day for the desert. You will be ok if you like chips, we lived off chips and salad.
Pool area small and didnt get a lot of sun, we spent most of our week on the beach when it wasnt raining. Few bars in the town with entertainment plenty of shops but very exspensive.
I would not go back to this hotel.
