So me and 3 other girls (aged 17-18) have just returned from a week in the Fiesta Sahara hotel- and it was incredible. 1/09-9/09
I was the 'responsible adult' in the whole arrangement so of course was pretty worried about all the reviews, maids stealing things, men coming up and grabbing you, the security, cleanliness, insects etc. But really it was an amazing hotel for what we paid.
First of all on our arrival- 3am we decided to go out and get food and met some lads who told us apparently their friends staying in the hotel had been robbed, and so had their whole floor. Now this didn't ease our worries at all, and we hadn't even decided to get a safe! The next day we went down to reception and asked to cancel our maid, one of the receptionists- the least helpful- really couldn't understand much english, but after a while and lots of 'acting out movements' she understood and for the whole holiday we were maid free... this resulted in nothing getting stolen! yay!
Next, I don't get it when families take their young, pre-teen kids to a clubbing resort. It's just not right. Anyone who complains about the resort should've done their research like we did. We knew there was going to be constant music, people shouting, banging on doors etc. So we were prepared, and in fact it wasn't as bad as we were expecting.
Our security were very strict. The reps had warned us that if you wanted to take someone back- good luck. And indeed we saw people being turned away from the hotel in the early hours of the morning, although somehow we managed to get 8 people into our room one night... But another night we saw some guy jumping over the small water attraction before the pool and straight into the pool. The security had no mercy- this was before 8pm as well so he was still allowed to swim, but he probably wasn't in our hotel- we saw them beating him to a pulp. Message= DO NOT ANGER THE SECURITY!
We had no problem with the prostitutes, PRs or looky looky men. Yeah of course they bother you (well not the prostitutes) but the PRs were lovely and you've just got to keep walking to where you want to go! The lookys are just funny, the names they come out with and the 'will you be my wife', 'I love my wife', 'Chicken nugget' are hilarious; all you've got to do is say 'no money,' or 'one euro' and they'll leave!
Also, beware of the lifts, first night we arrived there was something in the lift looking like urine. So I refused to put my case in there and pull it up 5 flights of stairs. But hey, it's magaluf. What do you expect?
Our reps were extremely helpful, giving us a presentation on the first day of what we can do, and they're all really understanding and good for a laugh. On the whole it probably was a rip off what we paid. Our MCP passes were 55euro each for a whole week, and then if we wanted free drinks each night we had to pay another 13e, but it was for all the clubs on the MCP so it was worth it. We thought Bananas, Boomerang and Carwash were good, tokio joes also played some good music (old r&b stuff). Carwash did foamparty and paint nights which were awesome. Although the foam just goes everywhere and you basically drown- it's amazing!
We went to BCM only once and wish it had been more, but is about 35Euros each time. We saw ProfGreen- incredible, and it's massive! Apparently there was a water party downstairs and a man with a snake around his shoulders (that's not an innuendo- a real snake) but I never saw...
There's a shop basically attached to the hotel with all the basic stuff you'll need, we didn't go anywhere else for the whole week. Pot Noodle is a must.
Literally amazing location, the nearest bar is Coco Bongos, with really friendly staff and cheap deals... and lots of stickers they insist they put EVERYWHERE. Then there's McDonalds, KFC, Subway, Burger King and Pizza Hut all super near. We ate so much junk.
We went to Mallorca Rocks (directly opposite) for DJ Fresh night. Wasn't all it was made out to be but that might've been the night. Would love to stay there though if the lineup for the week was good. Most of the rooms face out to the stage which would be cool.
Our rooms had fans but they weren't very effective. But we managed with opening our door slightly, Luckily we didn't have a heatwave! and our room was clean, clean towels, sheets, etc.
Loved the banter on the balconies while we got ready (about 11-12) and before we went out (around 1-2) Everyone was sitting on them having drinks shouting stuff to the other side- pool side definitely was best. Also the balconies are VERY low! I'm still impressed none of us fell over them!
Everything's pretty cheap there, the food, the drink, apart from the tacky souvenir stuff which is NEVER cheap. The poolside food was actually really good and useful and you've got to remember the number's high because it's in euros! Also the shop next door does 5L water for 2E50 which is sooo good!
Like the other reviews you are expected to give in your passports and 30E at the check in which can be a pain- but tbh, I would've probably lost my passport otherwise! We really didn't think we'd get back our 30e because our room was a mess and we broke the bed... however, there was no room check! the receptionist just handed it over straight away!
The strip is so much better than what we expected. There aren't people rolling around in the streets in their own sick. But maybe it's because we went at the end of the season, it was still busy but not overly crowded.
Overall an amazing experience! Definitely want to go back next year and maybe even be a rep!
Just take into consideration it's a drunken holiday and you get what you pay for (£300 for us), And go Maga Crazy!!
MAGA MAGA MAGAF00KINLUF! oh and girls: GET YOUR T1TTS OUT FOR THE LADS.
Top floor definitely had it's perks with the view! Also we didn't get disturbed too much. Ge...
