10 working professional from London on a Stag Holiday break. Just got back from this hotel and to be honest: “It does what it says on the tin.” We stayed from 29th June till 3rd July 2013.
I could not find a genuine real fault with the hotel, expect when the reps got wind we were around they will knock on our door trying to sell you tickets, which eventually gets very annoying when 4 different reps are knocking. I eventually threw water on one of them after a while, because she did not take NO for an answer. She saw the funny side to it. Lol lol
Our flight was severally delayed so we got to the hotel pretty late, but check in was smooth and quick, despite the large number of us. We were half board, so we had breakfast and dinner. There was always something new with dinner and breakfast does the job after a heavy night of drinking and partying. TRUST ME.
Food was good, nothing special, but when you have paid £260 for four night break half board, you cannot really complain. If you are a fussy eater, then don’t book for food, it is as simple as that. Remember you get what you paid for, and a lot of us thought the food was good. It was buffet style and freshly cooked.
The pool area is ok, nothing special perfect for lounging, but the beach is literally 10 mins away as well walking. Pool bar was cool.
The hotel is literally 10 mins walking distance to the strip. BCM was good, but we had a much better time in the bars/pubs. Alex’s or Panama Joes (10 euro’s got a wristband and drinks free for 2 hours.)or Bar 29, was really good. They had a good selection of music and is pretty close to all the action on the strip, but BCM is a must attend.
Yes there are the black prostitutes lurking around, but we just started calling them “Auntie’s and Old Woman”, which made them know, we knew they were about, and they never troubled any of us. Lol lol. They normally around the end of the strip, mainly quite places where there is lack of light, as I never saw any of them on the main strip. To be honest they only trouble those who are completely drunk, so walk in groups or just take a taxi back after your leave bar or club.
It was a good 4 night’s stay and this hotel is not a family hotel, maybe in the quiet time of the season, but it is perfect for anyone aged between 16-28, single or mixed sex groups of male or females. There was always a bit of banter with those who were also in your hotel and yes the hotel is quiet loud, but what do you expect when you go to magaluf in the high season.
Those who complain about the reception staff simply have no manners. We were nice to them, they were nice to us. Treat people how you would like to be treated. It simply called “Good Manners”
All in All If I was booking again I would stay here. For me it’s 7 out of 10. Perfect for location, excellent vibe, good food and no hassle, room cleaned every day without fail.
The team: John, Susazzne, Rebecca and Santos.. Thank you for making it a very easy four nights.
