|Address: Magaluf, Majorca, Balearics|
Mallorca’s landscape varies from dramatic mountains in the northwest across the fertile plains to the coves and superb sandy beaches in the east. Palma, on the southern tip of the island, is the seat of the autonomous government of the Balearic Islands. Here you’ll find a choice of shops, restaurants and nightlife as well as sightseeing, including the magnificent Bellver Castle and one of the biggest marinas in the Med. Old Palma is typified by the area immediately surrounding the cathedral. Mazes of narrow alleys and cobblestoned streets echo the era when Palma was one of the chief ports in the Mediterranean. Today Palma is a bustling city whose massive tourist industry has more than made up for its decline as a major seaport. Trendy and chic, Palma draws in the more discerning clientele to its fine tapas and unique nighclubs. Majorca itself attracts the largest number of visitors of any place in the Balearics and is famed for resorts such as Alcudia, Puerto Pollensa, Daia and Formentor.

|Whatever possessed First Choice to even put this in the family category is beyond me. I didn't think it was possible to get so many animals in 1 place.|
Smoking and drinking in the pool was a daytime occurence and was overlooked by all of the staff. Literally yobs (of ALL nationalities) were allowed to do anything they wanted day OR NIGHT.
Loud music played by the pool from 10am to 10pm, and then the trouble starts.
First they are shouting and screaming to each other before they go out....then from 2am through to 6.45am they were shouting, screaming, kicking doors, smashing glasses, throwing glasses over balconies, and letting off fire extinguishers.
After 3 nights of this i had to ring England to get hold of a rep because no phone number could be found for 1 at the hotel, all that happened was the nightmare started somewhere else.
When i did speak to a rep he told me he didn't understand either because over 80% of the people in the hotel belonged to a twenty's club and considering it holds 2000 guests thats a lot of yobs.
On the final night we complained YET AGAIN only for the only security guard to tell me all he could do was warn the guests and that was it, he said even the police wouldn't do anything because they were holiday makers.
To me it was disgraceful behavior by the yobs but it was even worse for the hotels staff to allow it to go on.
I hope anyone with a family has the sense not to even bother going here especially if you like sleep and like to not feel intimidated even in your own apartment.
NB From RHR.Com. This is the Plama Nova hotel in Magaluf NOT the one in Palma Nova

|Magaluf overlooks the bay of Palma and lies about 16 miles from the airport. Although a lot of work has been done to improve the centre and the resorts image, it still remains a favourite with the young, free and single due to the enormous amount of bars and discos at night. The biggest concentration of hotel and apartment blocks on the island, provide plenty of tourists for the many shops at the resort centre, while there is also a market at Calvia on a Monday. Water sports, go-karting, and a waterpark are all on offer for your daytime entertainment, with tennis and a golf course close by. The largest beach on the southern side of the island can still become crowded during the high season, and with the latest attraction, a glass sided submarine, there's never a dull moment here.|
|Like most of the popular European resorts, you'll find a huge amount of bars, pubs and restaurants here, serving every food combination you can think of. Plenty of fast food outlets give you the choice of burgers, pizzas and various fried chicken combinations with generous helpings of chips and salad if that's what you like. More traditional fare such as Sopa de Pescado (garlic stew with fish and tomatoes), Calderetas (lamb stew with almonds) and the fish specials Calamari (squid in batter deep fried) and Longostinos (giant prawns) are all worth a try. The local beers are as good as anything you'll drink back home and probably cheaper too. Wines and of course Sangria, are there to be enjoyed at every meal, and add to that the imported varieties and your drinking choice is endless.|
