Sol Lunamar Apartments

Excellent value for money
"Just returned from a short break at the lunamar apartments. We booked this with Alpharooms for Â£17 per room per night. On arrival we requested a pool view however were told that this was notpossible because the apartments had only opened that week and were still in the process of refurbishment. Luckily at this time the manager was passing and very kindly agreed to open another floor and give us a nice room with a pool view. Rooms were basic but clean and served the purpose. Only negative comments would centre around the cooking facilities as you are only supplied with 2 cooker rings, kettle and toaster. All rooms are studios and of the same standard. At this time of year if you want a sunny balcony you are probably better asking for a room overlooking the viva palmanova apartments, these rooms overlook a road. Supermarket nearby, which is of good standard and is pretty reasonably. Overall, would return if got a good price again. Cost for taxi from airport to door is approx. 30 Euro."

"We have just got back from holiday and was disapointed to find out when we got there we had to hire a kettle and toaster in a self catering apartment. the pool was very deep too deep for children (2.50mtrs) although it was cleaned every day. resturant does not open till 10.00 in the morning for food.
Most of the staff was very friendly apart from the odd ones, the apartments was situated close to the beach although we was disapointed on the cleanliness of the beach. night life was okay in nearby Magaluf if you are a disco diva but for people with small children it did not exsist.
If you do go then hire a quad from Med-Ped its great fun and the people that own them are very friendly.
Our overall view of the holiday was appartments okay but the resort will not make us go back.
If you do go watch out for Cruella in reception and Mr Grumpy in the bar"

"My boyfriend and I (25) stayed at the Lunamar for one week from the 30th July. We had an absoulutely brilliant time. The apartments are pretty basic but very clean. There was a nice bar area with very friendly staff and a large pool area which never got too busy. The pool was quite deep but did have a seperate kids area. There was no evening entertainment at the apartments but it didn't really matter because 5mins up one street was magulluf if you wanted a hectic night or 5 mins the other was the heart of palma nova which has beautiful bars & restaurants. Threre is also the choice of three fab beaches with really white sand.
I'd definately recommend the Lunamar beacause of its location it gives you lots of choices for your holiday."

"We have just returned from the Lunamar, having had one of the best holidays in a long time. After reading some of the reports on these apartments we were dreading going especially as we paid so little for the holiday (Â£600 for 2 adults 1 child) for 2 weeks. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived and could not fault these apartments in any way. The location is excellent 2 mins from beach, 5 mins walk either way to both Palma Nova and Magaluf. The staff could not have been any friendlier, a good selection of snacks and meals available from the lounge/bar at reasonable prices. The apartments were basic and in need of renovation but very clean, the maids are in every second day to change beds/towels etc. Pool area lovely and clean with seperate area for small children which is good as the main pool is rather deep. One slight dissapointment was the lack of entertainment a parrot show on a Friday night, but as we like to go out around the resort in the evening this did not bother us to much although it would have been nice to have entertainment more than once per week. I would recommend these apartments to couples or families as they are popular with both and nice and quiet with the option of livlier nightlife 5 mins walk away in Magaluf."

When we arrived outside the lunamar we firstly thought ok but not the best. When we entered the was a small reception area with very friendly reception people(most of the time). We were given our keys and wen we got to our rooms they were very tidy. the kitchen area was the same room as the beds but that wasnt a problem and the bathroom had shower,sink and a bath which were all very clean. We also had a great view of the pool but some of our friends did not have the best of views. We hoped all our rooms would be next to each other but only two were and the other two were either ends of the corridor. Another problem was that you werent allowed amyone back to the hotel. we had a group of friends that were on holiday at the same time and we arranged for them to come round for a few drinks before we went out but that wasnt allowed.
The bar staff were very friendly and were good to have a laugh with.
The hotel is a minutes walk from the beach and only 5 minutes from the main strip of bars and clubs that makes magaluf famous.
For a first holiday this was a fantastic place to stay.
Thats why im returning this year in july."

loved the lunamar
"Went to the lunamar apartments with my wife 25/09/04 for 1 week.
Our apartment was classed as studio but had 2 single beds instaed of the usual pull out rubbish. Although this was contained in one room,
there is plenty of space. Maid service first class and the bar staff and
apartment reception could not have been friendlier. Situated between palma nova and magaluf, you have the best of both worlds. Eating out is surprisingly cheap, we could get a full breakfast for 2.5 euros.
Liked it that much, we are going back May 2005."

Fairly basic but nice and clean appartments
"The appartments were clean and tidy with all the basics you need when on holiday! Pool area was nice and enjoyed a number of days sitting by the pool. Very closely located to beach, shops and bars!
Beaches in Palma Nova lovely and night life fantastic! Would definetely return to both the Lunamar appartments and Majorca!"

"1st time we have ever stayed in studio apts,must say they were excellent, kettle,toaster,tv,air con all provided ( 15 euro deposit for air con but you got it back ) literally round the corner you can find Magaluf. In the opposite direction you are spoilt for choice of where to eat and drink. There is always someone at reception to help or answer any questions, we had a bit of noise early morning once or twice but after speaking to reception it didn't happen again. Pool is lovely and there is a choice of 3 beaches all with beds and brollies within easy reach. We will definitely be returning to this resort and these apartments, we were a party of 4, 2 of which are oaps. I would ask for pool view though otherwise you are looking at the backstreet but thats just my personal choice, they are definitely worth a visit."

These apartments are perfect for coulple...
"These apartments are perfect for coulples both young and old! The rooms were cleaned every other day to a high standard. There was 3 single beds in the room, TV, basic cooking equipment including a kettle and toaster with a two ring hob and fridge freezer. The bathroom was very clean and of a good size. There is air conditioning available at no extra charge you just have to leave a 15 euro deposit. The location is ideal 2 mins form beach, 2 mins to bars and clubs in magaluf and 2 mins from palma nova couldn't have asked for better! The pool area was clean and there is a resturant and bar next to it but it is quite a small area. There was building work going on next door but it was not noisy and we were on the side by it."
