I visited this hotel between the 6th-14th of September. Me and my gf, 23 and 22, respectively, arrived and were greeted by a "I have had enough this season" attitude from the receptionist when I failed to produce a voucher with details of my stay, despite him having his own record of this on file. Admittedly, this was my own fault although I dont recall reading anything saying this particular email needed producing at reception. Luckily, a quick glance at my emails using the free wifi (by far this hotels most lucrative asset!!) solved this.
The room was one of the dirtier rooms I have stayed in on holiday, panels missing from the roof of the bathroom and random holes in the wall from previous mountings, but all in all ok. We had three single beds pushed together though they did slide all over the floor due to their wheels!!?? Free air con always a plus in this proximity of Magaluf, and wasnt switched off throughout our stay.
If i had arrived in this hotel with my friends for a lads holiday, I would have been very disapointed. I visited Magaluf twice in the two years preceding this one at the same time of year, staying at the fiesta jungla, and Mallorca rocks hotel, both of which were signifcantly more lively than the so called "lively Mallorca". The rooms are nicer in the exemplar hotels too! There was no entertainment round the pool and there wasnt many people around it, just loud music blaring. My balcony did not overlook the pool so sound levels were not an issue.
The location is great, literally on palma nova beach, and a 15 minute walk from the Magaluf strip which was ideal for me, close - but far enough away from the bustling strip.
Overall, I could not recommend this hotel to anyone due to staying in nicer/livelier hotels in previous years for similar prices. However, if (like me) you only use your room to sleep then the drawbacks of this hotel can be overlooked. I would urge any 18-30 groups to stay at Mallorca rocks, or the Fiesta Jungla, both very lively by day with a fantastic pool 'vibe'.
If younger couples can overlook the generally unfriendly nature of the staff, and sacrifice luxury for location. The 'lively' and I use this term very loosely, Mallorca could be just fine.
Me and my Gf had a fantastic time.
