Magaluf !!

Well we got back from Palma Nova last Monday, 6 girls out to celebrate our friends 50th birthday, what can i say ! we had the most amazing time, we had heard all the bad about Magaluf and to be honest nearly gave it a miss, even on the fri eve when we arrived we were given horror stories of the robberies, and the prostitutes, but be braved it on the Saturday night, and had an amazing night ( well weekend) never felt threatened in any way and didn't see any trouble in the resort at all, i know that perhaps in the height of the season it is very different & wouldn't choose it as a resort for my family holiday, but with the girls on a weekend away it was perfect we would go back tomorrow, everyone was very friendly and welcoming, i honestly think if you stick together you are safe, we met some great people out there & really didn't want to leave, so please don't judge till you have been, The Preston girls ( oh sorry & the birthday girl from Harrogate ! )

"...please don't judge until you have been...."

That's fair enough debbie as long as The Innocents Abroad know what the dangers are before they go to Magalluf.Which is what this thread is all about.

(Sticking together is the cardinal rule).

Delighted you girls had a great weekend.

Delighted you had a great time...but you say don't judge until you've been?

The fact that you stayed as a group helped you to stay safe.....but as many will tell you.....they stayed in groups and still got attacked...

Just about every night throughout the season another bagful of stories came about muggings etc....so you girls were lucky.....thankfully...

For others..... listen to the postings that have been posted all Summer......and read the letters in the local papers from residents etc.......then the rest is upto you!

Don't you say you haven't been warned..

I agree we were lucky and it was the end of the season and i think this made a difference,as friends in our group had visited from Santa Ponsa in July a couple of years ago and said it was completely different & saw the prostitutes hanging around, i did see a different Magaluf to the 1 i visited twice as a child,and as i said wouldn't go there for a family holiday, you do need to be very careful & read all the postings which thankfully we did, i just hope that the police & authotities can get a grip of the situation before it just becomes a no go zone.
