We found the hotel staff quite helpful the only problem we had was at approx 4 oclock when people were just thinking of relaxing before dinner a dj started and the music blared out even with the room doors closed there was not much chance of a sleep.
As for the room we had barely room to get round the bed if we put the bed in the middle of the room we had only approx 12 inches up either side and not much more at the bottom of the bed.
If you are going for a relaxing week do not use this hotel as if you did not get to sleep early there was not much chance of a sleep between 4am and 6am with noisy late teens early 20s coming home from the clubs.
As for the pool bed there were not enough for to the clients in the hotel and quite a number of bed there were broken.
But on a good note we have to say the pool was very clean and a good size for swimming.

Slight problem on arrival as they did not not have us booked in, but this was sorted within an hour or so.
Rooms were basic but all we needed, nice view of Palma Nova beach from balcony.
Maid service was excellent, rooms were kept clean, towels and bed linen changed daily.
Free air conditioning and tv witha few english channels.
Brilliant location, 5 minutes walk away from relaxing Palma Nova beach and 10 minute walk from livelier Magaluf beach. 2 minutes walk away from nearest supermarket, and is right at the end of the main strip of bars, saying this, there wasn't much noise.
Pool was quite small but ok just to dip in and cool off. Pool bar food was nice.
Breakfast and evening meals buffets were always gorgeous.
Full english breakfast, 5 varieties of cereals, croissants, toast or fruit.
Always 2 different soups, plenty of variety with evening meal as menu always changed and always fruit, jelly and ice cream for dessert.
On one occasion we needed a doctor and the staff at reception were very helpful.
Escapades reps were brilliant so anyone booking with Thomas Cooks Escapades I would highly recommend paying for the weeks block booking.
All in all, very impressed with The Vistanova, would definately recommend and definately return.

Would we stay here again - No
1. We were the only English people in the hotel, everyone else was Spanish OAP's. While you were getting your food they thought nothing of pushing you out of the way, one lady even stabbed me in the back with her finger for me to get out of her way.
2. The food was awful - bland & cold
3. The had overbooked - a party of 10 were shipped out to another hotel
4. The rooms were really basic, peoples names written all over the dressing table
5. The put us on the bottom floor overlooking dustbin - it really smelt

We were half board and the food was really good with English sausage, egg, beans, grilled tomato, bacon, toast, cereal 3 sorts, omlettes, ham and cheese, pastries, fruit. The evening food was just as good pizza, chips, rice, salads, pasta, turkey, lamb, fish, pork, chicken curry chicken nuggets ect.
5 minute walk to the beaches Palma Nova and Magaluf.
Hotel is noisey about 6am for 10 minutes with people coming in. We were right by the main strip so you can hear outside but after 2 days you stop hearing it. There a very mixed age group in the hotel from babys to older couples. There was no trouble, phone is the room is cheaper than the call box 5 Min's to the uk cost

You are situated very close to the beach and Palma Nova is a short walk away.

Hotel very clean, rooms small and basic but cleaned every day with towel change daily. Restaurant very good with wide selection to suit all tastes. All staff very pleasant.
Only two or three minutes from the beach but a lot of guests seem to stay at the hotel pool for most of the day.
The only thing I would say is that a fridge would be great. All in all a good place to stay and we would certainly go back.
