Stayed here with 3 friends over the last week of July this year.
We had all read reviews before we went and were slightly worried about what we had booked, especially reading about the food, when we arrived my worry was made worse as there was a group of people waiting for a coach transfer to the airport and one said to me " you just got here, unlucky, this place changes you we can't wait to get away" he then walked away.
I told my friends what he had said and we where all worrying about what it was going to be like, at that a receptionist turned up to check us in, we arrived at about 1030 in the morning so our room Wasnt quite ready so we where told to put out luggage in a store room
Where it would be safe.
When we got into the room
(After only an hour or so of being there) i was presently surprised, it was clean and spacious, with good views from the balcony, yes it was just a standard room with only one plug socket but i was on a clubbing holiday and it was only going to be used to sleep in.
We went down to the pool area shortly after arriving, and again I was impressed, you could go into a little pool bar and get your own drinks, all the signage states 2 drinks each but unless your going over the top the staff are not that strict at all. The pool it's self is clean and looked after well and the hotel entertainment are always coming around asking if you want to take part in games round the pool.
The food is the main thing we were worried about but there was no need. Okay there wasn't much verity but it did the job and we where all happy with it, yes chips were always there but there was a rice or pasta alternative, there was veg every night And always salad available, I had chips once so for
The people that are saying you have to eat chips with every meal well it's a load of rubbish. The food Wasnt top notch but nice and I always had something different.
The location of the hotel is brilliant, it's a couple of minuets walk to the strip and you can go either way of the hotel drive to get there, be careful if your on your own and you go left as you will have to walk down what we named prostitue hill, you see them all over that short ally towards the strip, they wont leave you alone until you get near the strip
Or police and if you look at the top of the grassy bank on the left you will see there pimps watching from time to time. It is also only a short walk to the beach from the hotel and both magaluf and pama nova beaches are easily accessible. The hill is barely noticeable, it's not massive at all, there were much bigger hills all over magaluf!
We were with escapades at this hotel and the reps were brilliant we had Laura and nat, they both got involved with games on trips we did and where a good laugh and easy to talk to, we paid €240 for our wristband but that included example and Mallorca rocks and also the boat party. With the wrist band you could have €1drinks between entry and 0230 or you could pay €7 per night and have a free bar from 0000-0530 so paying the €7 is worth it. The events are with it and would recommend paying the amount we did yes it's pricy but you get a foam party, paint party, silent disco, frat party, pool party, boat party, example a number of bar crawls and more.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone between 18-25 as it is for people who have come on a clubbing holiday, the hotel is nosy at night but we couldn't moan as we made our fair share of noise shouting each others names from
Floor to floor and chanting "yam yam army" but it didn't bother us when someone else was shouting as you don't notice it when your
Tired. We only got johnny bombed once in the week we where there and nobody threw any glass or plastic bottles at us, I never saw prozzies in the pool like others have said, and yes the night receptionist can come across rude but I think it's his sense of humour,
Me and my friend lost our room key and to get another one we had to sing and dance for him which we found hilarious whereas when we told others about it they where disgusted so It's how you take him. Brilliant holiday would go back anytime.
