My girlfriend and I stayed at the Fergus Tobago earlier this month. It is a stones throw from Palma Nova beach with access from the pool just down some steps (useful for taking all-inclusive drinks to the beach- money saving!!). You are close enough to Magaluf without being too close (no noise distractions) and yet just round the corner from Palmanova, giving the best of both worlds.
The hotel is clean and well maintained, the staff were polite, housekeeping was daily. The food was more than adequate...it generally consisted of a cold buffet (meat, cheese, salad bar), hot plate with either fish/meat/chicken dish, chips, potatoes, vegetables, rice, paella (occasionally). There was a fruit selection with limited ice cream tubs, Jelly. On every meal we had (except breakfast of course) the waiter asked us what we would like to drink, you have the choice of a bottle of house wine or water.
The pool is albeit small but perfectly fine for a quick dip and cooling off. The poolside area has ample seating for sitting outside to read a good book or down a couple of beers. I am not a sun-worshipper myself but my girlfriend quite happily lay on the sun loungers without complaint....more than enough for everyone.
Overall this hotel is great value for money compared to the price we paid. It is a good 3* establishment with a great location. Without being a snob, I was quite sceptical about the hotel before we went because I knew it was close to Magaluf and it was 'a cheap and cheerful holiday'- needless to say I should not have worried.
We will definitely book this hotel for any future visits to Palmanova/Magaluf.
Most rooms have a sea-view but pool-facing rooms will have the best view.
