Just back from 2 weeks in the Magdalena Grand: first impressions were great, location is superb right on the ocean with beaches either side of the central pool and sun decks. Plenty of shade and sun round the decks and pool, with palm trees and umbrellas round the main pool, lots of sunbeds. Everything new everywhere following the major refurb.
From the first welcome on arrival the staff were universally charming and helpful- food was very good indeed, excellent in the restaurant, good choice of drinks and wines.
Pool bar by the ocean, with good service all round the sunbathing and deck areas.
2 bars inside for evening drinks - we liked them both but the cocktail bar had the edge!
Rooms spacious, good bathroom with shower + bath, terrace overlooking the sea, excellent air con, room well serviced.
Golf course is in the plantation grounds right next to the hotel. We don't play golf, but other guests who did said it was a good one... good for walks too.
Main beach wonderful for morning walks, very gentle slope and mostly fine sand. Daily shuttle bus to Pigeon Point, also trips to the rainforest in centre of the island. Lots of bird life with pelicans diving off the beach most mornings.
Would we go again? Absolutely.
