“Hotel and sourroundings review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Hello readers !

We've been for a week at Bahia Principe Coral Playa in Torrenova.

First of all the Hotel:
- location : excellent view , excellent location right between Magaluf and Palmanova, both at walking distance.
- food: excellent, I love European food (we had HB)
- room & overall aspect: the hotel doesn't reach up at 4 star hotel furnished in 2013, however is clean and well maintain.

Its more of an 2002 4 star hotel with an 22" LCD :))

If the PR from the hotel sees my message you should write a letter to your CEO that he is 8-10 years behind with the furniture on this hotel. I've stayed at 2 or 3 stars hotels with better furniture then yours and a lot cheaper prices of course.


- Internet, since is an very large hotel i found the Wi-FI working very well in the lobby and pool area, your on vacation so Wi-Fi in your room I dont think is a must. Unless you want to Check-in on Facebook every time you do something :)) Also Wi-Fi is free

- Most of the hotel guests are usually 25+ years , you almost could say that is an Adults only hotel.

- I found it strange that we have to pay for the fridge, not alot but it was weird... 4 Euros.
- Front desk night shift doesn't speak english to well.

People will complain in the reviews about the outside noise. BCM Square is one of the biggest clubs in Spain and in the world , its located at about 15 min walk time from the hotel, also night life in Magaluf is very alive and the hotel is pretty close to pubs and clubs street so some noise made by teenagers who get back in the near by apartments buildings might be heard in the rooms , but nothing you cant ignore.
Have fun in Spain !

Recommended beaches (reached by rented car): Sa Calobra , Cala de Moro , Cala Pi

I will say that beside the furniture which is outdated every is excellent at this hotel.

We had a wonderful stay here, and can defintly recommend this to others. There is a lot of noise when you leave the hotel on the street, but nothing when you enter it. You can take the elevator directly to the beach, superb thing to make !! we had a fantastic view over the see and to the promenade of Magaluf. The food at the buffet is really good, more than we expected. Overall a hotel we can recommend.

I had a week at the Bahia Principe Coral Playa very relaxed, staff was very friendly and welcoming ... I was on the 11th floor with no noise, pool is not very big but good lift to the beach very good for those who do not want to walk. for me was very good! Thank you.

We returned from this Hotel yesterday completely exhausted despite being moved to another room 3 floors up after our complaint. We won this trip with Monarch through our local radio station and we are just so glad we hadn't had to pay for this experience. We decided to get married on July 13th and use this holiday as our honeymoon. We arrived and, on the face of it, this hotel stands out from the rest although it is bang opposite the Oceania and anybody who has been to Magaluf will know what sort of a hotel this is!!! Bearing in mind we only arrived Monday 15th July, by Thurs my now husband wanted to come home. Our room was close to the lift which covers 12 floors and every night without fail there was arguing and fighting and swearing. So instead of doing what you do when just married, we spent our time listening to obscenities night after night. I would point out that in the Friday, I wrote a letter to the manager who was most apologetic and asked if we would like to move rooms, which we duly accepted. However, one noise was replaced by another! Our new Spanish neighbour must have been stone deaf as he shouted when he spoke and had his TV on VERY LOUD. Again at night, parents allowed their children to run up and down the corridor shouting and screaming and please bear in mind while all this was going on, outside on the sea front every hour or so a boat full of drunken 18-30's came in playing loud music as it's passengers cheered.. I have heard less chanting and cheering at a football match. This went on until 10pm each and every night until the real disturbances began.

"Each bright, air-conditioned room at Bahía Principe Coral Playa has free Wi-Fi, a minibar and a flat-screen TV with satellite channels" NO AIR CONDITIONING, A MINI BAR IF YOU PAY AND DEFINATELY NO FREE WI-FI. There is a vent in the room which is useless in temperatures of 30+ degrees. Also watch out for the used condoms on the fore court and surrounding areas!!

Food ok if you like fish stew, fish pie, fish goulash, fish fingers etc. and by the look on the faces of some of the restaurant staff (not all) you would think they were doing community service! Despite the dress code being clearly displayed at the door of the restaurant, I thought I was at a strip show some days. NEVER AGAIN!!!

Room Tip: Keep away from the rooms ending in 07 as they are closest to the lifts!!

I had a two week stay in this hotel and was very disappointed.
Very large hotel and very little sun loungers which where taken up before 8am, also pool is very small.

The food was cold as soon as the restaurant opened with no facilities to reheat. It was the same food everyday either fish, pizza or burgers! and spent nearly all spending money eating out when was all inclusive!!!

I did make a complain to the hotel manager about these problems whilst over there but nothing more was done.

Stayed in this hotel for two weeks and bedding was changed once!

Though most of the staff here are very friendly and couldn't fault the amazing sea views.

Also, would recommend anybody staying at this hotel to pack sensible shoes as this hotel is at the top of "cardiac hill". Also, it can be quite intimidating on a night with the prostitutes that sit all around the wall of the hotel and would recommend that any young lads do not get left behind and to not walk past them by thereselves because they will get attacked by these people as I saw it several times myself!

All I can say is if you do not want to end up in an 18-30 nightmare, don't book! I was there for 5 days and did not get any sleep at all. I was on a corridor with a group of young men in every other room. The noise, bad langauge, loud sex and general disregard for anyone else was at a level I never, ever want to experience again. They were on a final warning because one of the party, and they weren't the only party of loud and obnoxious young people, had urinated up against the glass entrance into reception in full view of other people. However, even after complaining about their behaviour their 'final warning' came to nothing. The hotel management did not manage any of the dire behaviour at all.

Evening entertainment was poor, the bar closed at 11.30 p.m. and as a solo traveller my only option was to sit in my room listening to either a party in the next room or people having sex. The one small bar at the poolside was under staffed and there were often large queues, snacks were uninspiring and the sandwiches had hard and curled bread. The staff never smiled or interacted, some were just plain rude.

The food in the restaurant was fine, staff were pleasant, however people sitting with vests and shorts at dinner is not 4 star quality.

Too few sunbeds and people putting towls on them and not being there all day was another problem. I spent most of the last two day on my balconly with the view of male and female underwear, toiletroll and various other things on the roof of the restaurant which I looked out on to. One morning there was a pair of boxer short hanging over the railing of my balcony. The residents of the other rooms where using the roof to go from room to room also.

I have never been so glad to leave a place, and when I got picked up at 3.50 a.m. recepetion was busy with groups of young men returning one of whome was completed naked, not trying to cover himself either.

I have lodged an official complaint with the travel agent who booked me on this holiday. It was a complete and utter waste of money. The clientele was not 'couples and families' as advertised, it was full of groups of young people on the rampage.

Room Tip: No advice here I just wouldn't book the hotel ata ll
