We went to Club Magic Life on 18th March 2013, it was a really long and boring flight. We arrived at the hotel at night so even though we had a sea view room we could not see the sea when we got there because it was so dark outside. We werent over impressed with the room, it wasnt up to a 5 star standard however you only get ready in there and sleep there so we didnt let it bother us too much, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. At night it was so windy (ive never heard wind like it).
The resort was brilliant. It was over 30 degrees when we were there (it would be far too hot for me in the summer months here) however take a cardigan at night because the wind can be very cool. The pools were really cold (the sea being warmer than the pools) but I didnt have a say in the matter when the lifeguard found it funny to throw me into the pool.
We had a walk down the jetty every day, the fish that you can see are amazing and colourful. My boyfriend went snorkelling and said you could see so much more under the water. I attemped it but was too scared so got out quick! We had been walking on the wrong jetty for the first couple of days and were told that we had to use the other one. The man was friendly enough though.
There was so much choice of food. The Magico Restaurant had different theme nights every night and the staff made the outside areas look so nice changing the decoration to match the themed night (ie on seafood night there were cardboard fish hanging from a net outside and on romantic night they had love hearts up).
We went to the 3 a la carte restaurants during our stay. These are definately worth booking. (Even if you do have to get up early and go and queue up for them). My favourite was the Egyptian restaurant, it has an amazing starter!! You can also smoke a shisha pipe afterwards. The thai restaurant is also good (the food can be a bit spicy) but they have fried ice cream - very interesting. The mediterranean restaurant was mostly fish but also had other options (much to my satisfaction).
The strawberry slush from the beach bar is very refreshing and I can recommend the White Satin and Blue Lagoon cocktails...YUMMY!!! The staff were all really friendly and always took the time to make a fuss of you and talk to you.
The Wellness Team can be a bit of a nuisance around the pool as well as the photographers but if you say no from day one they wont bother you again.
We also liked the Cafe Sissi Bar (which we only found later on in our holiday). Here they do tea, coffee and cakes. Not many people know this is here and it has a great view of the entertainment at night.
Overall we had an amazing time. We would definately recommend it.
