OLA Hotel Panama
Ranked #10 of 38 Hotels in Palmanova
Reviewed 29 April 2014

I have just came back from palmanova staying at this hotel with my 14 year old son.We got of to a bad start as they didn't have a room for us on the first night. They put us in the hotel across the road. we ate drank and enjoyed the entertainment at the panama. As promest our room was available after breakfast.
my son never left the hotel enjoying all activity,s they put on. the entertainment on a night was very good, from flemengio dancers to parrot shows. the entertainment team were great for adults and kids. The food was very good. there was stuff there that I didn't like but I got a good meal at every sitting even tried some dishes I had never had before. every one from manager to domestic staff were great. some parts of hotel needs modernising as a bit tiered. I met a family there and we are planning to go there next year. As soon as we can get booked. margy from Newcastle.

Just arrived back from a great Holiday at the Ola Club Panama (April 2014). 2 Adult 2Kids(11&2). Location is central to Palmanova, not on the seafront but only 2 mins walk to the beach. Located very close to shops and Bars/Restaurants, but of course you won't need much food & drink because you'll be stopping as all inclusive basis.
Everybody enjoyed the food. Plenty of Rice / pasta / local tastes as well as the usual Chips etc. I would rate the food as 5 out of 5 no faults at all. I really can't understand other comments on here that don't rate the food. I have stopped at the Hawaii All Inclusive which is a 4 star, and I thought the food was better at the Ola Panama.
Rooms are basic but that's reflected in the price.
Hotel caters mainly for the French but don't let that deter you.
Steps are an issue at the front but there is a way to enter the hotel via the back but its not an official way.
Would definitely stop again.

Visited Palma nova/ maga for first girls holiday all aged 19 and chose this 3* hotel.
when we got there we couldn't check in for two hours so had to wonder around.. they did let us leave our luggage though.
also note - there are steps down from to the entrance of this hotel.. which are not easy to carry your luggage up when your bus comes to collect you when you're hungover on your last day!

food - vile (apart from breakfast if you get up in time for it! which we did once)

staff - mediocre. friendly enough most of the time. happy to answer any questions. the kids reps were so loud and annoying. went end of June time which isn't in school holiday time but was a lot of families at the hotel.

rooms - cleaned on a daily basis. spacious. good temperature. safe kept in wardrobe. key given on arrival for a 20 euro deposit. had no problems with maids or security of our belongings. (well my phone got stolen in bcm but that's another story!) also fridge in room, spacious shower although it kept falling off the wall!

location - ten minute walk from magaluf. food/ essential shops, kebab shops, bars and restaurants all within minutes. beach a 5 minute walk.. McDonald's however.. 20 minute walk definitely.
pool - good size, lack of sun loungers.

HIGHLIGHTS -
1) the over 18s only roof terrace! this was amazing as it was quiet, always sunloungers spare and a free soft drink machine up there to save you moving!
2) the self service bar. can help yourself to alcoholic/ soft drinks .. as strong or as week as you like! there is a two drink per person limit but the staff didn't really take any notice!
3) hotel next door is the one from the magaluf weekender! however looked a lot more fun than this one so made us very envious.

so to summarise.. it does what it says on the tin basically. we used to dread food times... looked forward to our pizza and kebabs on the way home for our main meals! personally I wouldn't use this hotel again but I certainly wouldn't say don't go!

The hotel is in a fantastic spot, the beach is literally 2 minutes away as well as all the shops, me and my boyfriend traveled together as couple age of 19 and 20 but it really was mixed of all ages! Staff we're very polite and helpful, food wasn't quite up to scratch for us but we made the most of it , breakfast was the best meal. Pool area wasn't to big but was fine for what we wanted, the animation team was great and made a lot of effort to get people to join in, we had a great time taking part in the activities thanks to Fabio the chief of the team. Over all we would stay again if the price was right, as we had a great holiday.

Just returned from 4 night stay, at check in no queue, staff were polite and helpful. We stayed in room 420 and it was very clean with 2 huge double beds and plenty of wardrobe space with hangers.
The bar was self service, plenty to choose from included spirits and even Bailey's, and no queues, snacks all day provided.
The location was brilliant, near to beach, bars, restaurants, try banana Joes just down the road, great night. Magaluf is only a 10 minute walk if you fancy the nightlife.
The only drawback is around the pool, we were squashed like sardines, not enough beds to go around and you struggle to find a good spot as its shaded by trees, however the beach is only down the road.
All in all its not bad for a quick cheap getaway, we enjoyed it. Would we return, yes to the location but maybe not the hotel, only due to lack of sunbeds and the food was a bit hit and miss, breakfast was the best meal.

Just back from a week at this hotel.Great location with beach and shops just round the corner.
Good food with something for everyone.Small choice of snacks in between meals if wanted.Self
service bar.We took plastic pint tumblers with us as you only get small ones supplied.Saves running back and forward.
Rooms cleaned every day.
All areas clean.
Pool areas clean with a big pool with a chute and a kids pool.
Reception staff very helpful.Also have entertainment staff around all day and night for both kids
and adults.
Only down side, no ramp for luggage or wheelchairs.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning on our next trip to Palma Nova.

Room Tip: We were in room 108 and never got disturbed with any noise
