We arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning & were greeted by a pleasant receptionist. The staff are all pleasant and friendly. The indoor public spaces and bedrooms are all very clean but the bedrooms I felt were very basic. The hot water in the bedrooms would fluctuate, especially late at night when there wouldn't be...

Just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Magda hotel. We can honestly say that in our opinion it is a good 4 star hotel. The rooms, dining room, reception area, bar area etc. are all kept spotlessly clean. The pools are cleaned daily and our towels and bed linen were changed every 2/3 days. We found the staff... More

we booked a four star based on advice that we should expect a three star service but this was not the case. On arriving we were immediately welcomed, although early hours in the morning, and shown to our room by a very courteous and helpful receptionist. Our room was an excellent standard, immaculate and cleaned every day. The range of... More

Great value for money. Loved our holiday at the Magda but a shame you cannot see the sea from the hotel, Very clean rooms with a great pool and bar area and very friendly helpful staff. Buffett style food varied every day. Great to be served an actual glass. Would go again!

I'd agree with the majority of the reviews here. The hotel is very nice, and on the whole the staff are very good. I've stayed here twice, in 2009 and 2010. The first time, there was around half a dozen Brit families so my son had some company, but the second time he was bored silly as we were the... More

My wife and I have just returned from a week's holiday, all inclusive, at the Magda. We had a lovely time and the Magda is a very nice, comfortable hotel. We had a super room (308), a family room although there were only the two of us, it had a double bed, single bed and a sofa couch, it was... More

We were a little concerned when we couldn't find many reviews for the Magda, now we know why, out of 120 rooms only 4 had Brits in them all the others were French, German and Belgians, this wasn't a problem everyone was nice and polite, but we did feel excluded as none of the animation team spoke a word of...

The perfect destination if you are looking for a place to relax and chill out from working hard, where you immediately feel at home by the extremely friendly staff who would move heaven and earth to give you a holiday to wish for, and who, after all those years, have become good friends.

We booked a week at the Magda Hotel through Thomas Cook, a disaster from the start, on arrival the receptionist waited until the Thomas Cook rep had left us to inform us the hotel was overbooked and there was no room available for us, She placed us over the road in the Klio Apartments for three days, the room had...
