Fantastic hen-do holiday!
I'd booked this hotel for my friend's hen party before reading some mixed reviews about it, which made me a bit anxious. However, from the moment we arrived we could not have had a better time.

We were a group of 22 and not one of us had a problem. Vilanova Resort is based on the strip, so it can be noisy at times, but it's perfect for a hen or stag party atmosphere.

A selection of bars and clubs surround the hotel and there is a supermarket next door, which we used to buy toiletries and other essentials from.

Our room was nice and spacious with air-con and we all used the safes in reception to make sure our valuables were kept secure.

Overall, we had a brilliant time here, although if you go in a group you will be asked to leave 100 euros as a deposit per room.

I would definitely return with the girls.

like a jail cell

Mrs Howdon, 23 March 2017

We started off initially in the appartment we requested but had to move as they were starting some renovation work. Everything was as we expected from 3star accommodation. Cleaning standards were good and staff very helpful.

Mrs Cameron, 25 October 2016

The apartment was too far away from reception. The furniture was tired. One of the chair seats collapsed when Julie sat on it , upon examination it had been repaired before and the front support rail had been sawn out and not replaced leaving Julie with a badly bruised thigh. The TV had no remote control and looked as though it dated from the mid 1980s overall the area was nice so I have rated it good but the accommodation was not great

Mr Blake, 30 March 2016

Mrs Walsh, 22 December 2015

tired desperate need of renovation.
uncomfortable beds, springs coming through.
bar/restaurant no food available.
very clean and centrally located.

Mrs Harrison, 09 December 2015

We had no problems while we stayed cleaners came in every day towels changed every day will definitely go again also met very friendly people

Mrs Dalton, 17 November 2015

Great very very basic, but suppose ok if you just want a place to crash- clean and unbelievably basic. Concrete bases with very thin cheap sprung mattresses which are fine unless you move in your sleep..... If you get any sleep! It will be broken when your body gets trapped between the springs if or when you happen to turn onto your side ..... Bad mistake!
By the way, don't expect to be able to share your "bed" with your partner as the concrete bases + mattresses are set at an "L" shape,, so you will spend your holiday sleeping with your partners head or feet- depending on your choice of sleeping arangement!
Made the most of it, but wouldn't return .

Miss Holt, 04 August 2015

Excellent location for a lively holiday. Stayed in a one bed apartments which are spacious and have aircon. Maid service Everday. Shops and bars on the door step so can't be quite noisy. Perfect for groups, friends, Hendo/stagdo. Only down side is there are not enough sunbeds for the amount of guests and many of them broken.

Mrs Sewell, 16 July 2015

The staff were unwelcoming and generally unhelpful.
Villanova in my opinion
is not suitable for families or more mature couples and singles.
I had no problems with the noise from the strip, but I experienced being woken up at unsociable hours by others staying their by shouting, knocking on my door and or ringing of my and other rooms doorbells.
Saying that the rooms were spacious, kept clean and had all I needed to use as a base.
I went fully knowing about the Strip, but was not expecting the the unsociable actions of other who had no respect for other guests and this occurred every night of my stay. I did go and ask if staff could speak to a young group of guests who had woken me up at 1.15am and this was on my fourth night and the explanation I got was 'we've just had a group arriving' when I asked could they not have reminded them that others would be asleep and to respect that fact all I got was a shrug of the shoulders and told they would send security round to have a look.

Mrs King, 08 December 2014

Nice but needed updating. Got upgrade😊 but stairs steep
Staff all nice

Mrs Riley, 19 May 2014

The only thing that let's the accommodation down is they do not have proper beds, so it was not that comfortable but it was clean, and sometimes the drains smelt from the toilets.
