We stayed at this fantastic beachfront apartment 17/8/16-1/9/16 as a family aged from 9-70 years old! We couldn't honesty fault anything. The location was amazing. Stunning views and literally 1 minutes walk to the beach. It had wifi, Sky tv, air con. All essential these days! Juan was very pleasant and was always on hand if we needed him. It has 4 good size bedrooms. Large lounge/dining area. Fully equipped kitchen. We will definitely be booking again for next years family holiday as its by far the best apartment we haved stayed in Palma Nova over the past 6 years!
Excellent apartment - 2 adults, 2 children plus Grandma. Room each!! TV, wifi and superb location - great value for money especially for front line location. The owner (Juan) very helpful and accommodating. We look forward to coming back for another holiday
Our first time visiting this apartment.
A party of 8 of us with teenagers and a 4 yr old stayed for 9 nights.
The property was everything it was advertised to be.
You could not hope for a better location; right next to the beach, above several shops and restaurants/bars. (Which close early enough to not be noisy at night).
The rooms were clean and, with the air-conditioning on, nice and cool.
One room (nearest the main window at the front of the property) doesn't have air-con but does have a patio door with a net cover. The only other bedroom without a/c had a fan and was right next to the a/c in the corridor so it wasn't really needed.
The kitchen consists of a double sink, fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, gas cooker and a washing machine. There are enough utensils, pots and pans etc.
There TV is a large 50" with sky's free-to-air channels and an HDMI port which we used for our DVD player.
Bath towels are provided. An iron and ironing board. Plenty of storage space.
A large dining table, adequate seating and a couple of coffee tables.
It is located a good 10 mins walk from the hustle and bustle of Magaluf, we did not have any problems at night with noise. You would only get a bit from from people returning to their hotels late on, but with it being on the beach it is not a busy thoroughfare and, considering where you are located, it is quiet.
The owner Juan is a great guy and very accommodating. He could always be found at his bar which was just around the corner. He made it very clear that if there was anything we needed, to let him know. During our stay he provided us with an additional airbed (which we didn't ask for but he said he thought it would help, which it did). In all honesty there wasn't anything we needed to bother him with.
He provided us with 3 sets of keys. We received our deposit back with no problem.
There are larger supermarkets within a 5-10 min walk. We used the Aldi and Eroski.
We used balearic-transfer to and from the airport, as recommended by the Juan. €105 return. Which was the best price I could find, it was a good service.
For the price you pay for this apartment you really cannot grumble at all. Not one of our party had anything bad to say about it. I would be very happy to stay here again.

On arrival we were stranded (with a toddler) unable to locate the owner, not at the apartment as promised, no-one at his bar despite his direction to go there if he was not at the apartment. The mobile number provided did not work, we finally gained access to some shade in the hallway when another occupant opened the outer door. Owner arrived after over an hour, no apology,seems his phone was not working. the apartment had been newly decorated but was not ready for us, no TV, no curtains, no cot/small bed for toddler, we were promised at 14.00 that these would arrive shortly. man arrived around 18.30 to put up curtains, TV arrived a while after. In the meantime we had discovered no mugs, kettle not working, as we pointed these things out we got the impression that Juan (owner) felt we were being demanding, he provided mugs and kettle from another apartment. Between us we had only two keys for the apartment door and one for the outside door, this presented challenges throughout the holiday if we went out separately. Toddler bed/cot never did arrive during our stay. Large mirrors had been left leaning against the walls rather than being put back up, this was inconvenient but also because we did not feel happy having mirrors precariously balanced with a toddler in the apartment. An apartment for 8 but not enough plates, glasses etc. Coking utensils VERY limited, oven is tricky. Only 3 chairs on the balcony, next door neighbour appears to hog the clothes airer. Hot water for only 3 consecutive short showers. Front bedroom gets incredibly hot, nighttime and early morning noise makes this room a very difficult place to sleep. Paid 200 euro deposit, Juan said he would return this the night before our early departure, by 9.30pm he had not arrived, eventually we went to his bar at 9.45pm because we needed to get to bed, he said he would come in ten minutes and appeared annoyed. At 10pm he knocked on the door, thrust the money at me, said he would trust us to have done no damage and left. Other reviews mentioned his friendly & helpful manner, we did not experience this. If you have already booked and want more info then feel free to message me. I want to be fair, the apartment was clean, the beds were comfortable and is close to beach but one room particularly is not peaceful. Good storage in bedrooms and lounge area but overall our experience was marred, it was a very stressful start to the holiday and a stressful end. Think we may have been first occupants this summer so hopefully mirrors will go back on walls, there is now a to and there are 6 mugs, a work in progress!
