Stayed here for five days. The staff are very friendly and are very knowledgable of the area. The hotel is clean and there are staff on the bar 24 hours a day which helps when reception is closed.
The rooms are very basic and you need to pay for any extras you might need such as a fridge etc. As the room has no air conditioning you can rent a fan but I think that it would be better if you could rent a portable air conditioning unit rather than a fan as this would cool the room rather than circulating hot air.
This hotel attracts a lot of young clientele and our last night here was hell! Arguing, shouting, banging on doors and running up and down. However this was the guests not the hotel and only happened on the last night but what more can you expect in Magaluff?
The only thing that let this hotel down for me was the shower in our room. The shower was completely pointless as there was hardly any water that came through and what did come through was changing from hot and cold continually. We did speak to reception about this and the handy man came and explained that it couldn't be changed as we were on the second floor and the water pressure was poor.
There was also free wifi provided in the reception area but this was unreliable. However, you could pay to use the Internet.
All the food is aimed at a young market which is not a problem as this is the clientele. We didn't eat anything other than breakfast or chips in the hotel. We had breakfast included with our booking and this was a good hangover cure and nothing more.
The hotel is 5 mins walk from the beach and a number of restaurants. There is a Lidl supermarket around the corner and this allows you to buy essentials. If you fancy walking into Magaluff it takes 25 mins on the sea front or a taxi will cost you 8-10 euros but the walks nice and you can drink along the way. Around 11pm everything closed around the hotel and you need to head towards Magaluff for the bars that stay open later.
I would stay here again in the future but only in a room with good water pressure and if there were more of us. If your young and on a drinking holiday this hotel is for you.
