“Very basic for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

The first thing that we didnt like was the fact reception desk had two pet dogs in baskets on the top which i dont think was very hygenic. The apartments were very clean with clean towels and bedding every couple of days. very basic with only the minimum basic kitchen equipment. Air conditioning didn't work properly - not cold enough. The property is about 10 to 15 minute walk down to the beach with an uphill walk back. The only thing wrong in the bathroom was the shower, very small with a curtain rail that wasn't fixed properly and a few tiles missing, there was no shower mat and towels were not supposed to be used as such. The pool area was nice with sun loungers. All balconies faced the pool area. All in all these apartments aren't that bad, maybe a bit expensive for what you got.

We stayed here for a week, got back today. when we arrived the lady on reception gave us a map and highlighted where shops etc were which was really helpful. Other staff friendly and helpful too. Room basic and we had issues with the electrics every time we used the washing machine it would cut out/spark but we got used to it happening and worked our way around it. Overall for the price we paid we couldn't grumble. Don't stay here if you have high expectations.

Useless balcony because it`s small and there is a fan that blows hot air out there, so its unbearable to be there. Also the shower didn't work and the hotel room was generally dirty. Do not stay at this hotel!!

Room Tip: Don^t choose this hotel

This was more of a last minute booking, About the only place open in late December, and when I saw the price, I knew it would not be the Ritz, It was a booking for a Company employee, we often have crew stay over at a nearby hotel, but this was closed.

I called in to make the booking, It struck me immediately that this was a family operated hotel, hostel, call it what you like, Price was 22 euros for one night,

Booked our Employee in the next day, Seemed there was a big family party going on, a vey relaxed atmosphere, keys handed over, the tv remotes without having to pay a deposit, all in all not bad so far, The room was clean, a small kitchenette, Come on what more can you expect ?

Excellent value for money, Friendly, Helpful,

Yes it's miles from the Beach, but if you want to sleep there overnight it's a 100 euro fine, so the hotels cheaper !

Maybe this stay was an exception to the rule, So if your a bit of a moaner, stay away !

We stayed at Montenova for 1 week in July 2012. According to out impression, the main problems are dirty room and various loud noises throughout the night. As for dirty rooms, the rooms were only cleaned twice during the week. Being reasonably close to the beach, we experienced the room being covered in sand the majority of the time. In addition, the sheets were dirty upon arrival. As for noise level, there are two quite big streets close to the hotel, though the main issue is from the cleaning system of the pool. And of course, young drunk scandinavians.

Would suggest to avoid this hotel. Though, as one last 'gift', the hotel let all their guests pick a free soda/drink from the minimarket upon departure.

When I arrived I was told to go by car (with the receptionist) to my room. I did not quiet get why it had to be by car since I allready was in the building with the apartments? Of course I asked and said I was a little confused, but the man seemed to overhear my questions, and kept saying "it just a little down the road". We then parked in front of a hotel (Delfin Playa), and the man pointed at the 4* star, saying "this is much better, 4* star and everything". Still I did not know what was happening?? He left, and the receptionist at the hotel took over. I asked her what was going on, and she answered that he probably had overbooked, as if it was the most common thing in the world.
I booked Montenova because it was apartments(kitchen facilities), and instead i was given a hotel room!! Probably the worst room in the entire hotel. No balcony, and no view at all (a huge tree just outside the window). And worst of all, no minibar!
Next day I went back to Montenova, and see if there was any apartments available. First the receptionist looked as he had never seen me before, so I had to repeat 2-3 times what was my problem (studio/hotel room), then he tried to call (or pretended to) a friend who had apartments too, but no one answered, of course! He offered me to have breakfast in the hotel on his account, instead of finding an apartment. I accepted, but still not quite satisfied with the handling of this booking.
Overbooking is not ok, but at least he could have explained to me what was about to happen when I arrived, instead of just ordering me into a car.
Luckily I was only staying for 3 nights, so I "survived" the lack of refrigerator and balcony :)

Appartments are at the crossroads, all balconies face the tiny pool - during the day there is noise from the pool and rooms. At night you hear neighbour's air conditioning and drunk people. There was a main road to Palmanova just behind the appartments (a lot of noise and smog!!!) Appartments are very far from the beach, you have to walk through the hill. The staff at the reception with no interest in clients, the water from the siphon in the bathroom was leaking so we had to call the plumber. Moreover, our room was not clean enough (cobwebs, dust, filth on the balcony), whenever you have shower, all bathroom is flooded!!! Your toilet paper has a shower too. But what is the most important, luckily, no cockroaches in the appartments, but only in the streets closer to the sea.
I recommend these appartments to those people who want to cheap accomodation for a few days but for a longer stay you should look for something better.
