If you look down at the VAST majority of reviews about this hotel you see that what the reviewer "Jan A" has said holds no credence what so ever!
As a family we holiday a lot and i would say we are most definitely used to and also expect a VERY high standard!
And Club Magic Life certainly meets those standards.
The first thing you will notice as you approach Magic Life (apart from the cheesy billboard logo - Come on Club Magic you could put someone off with that!) is the amazingly well kept and green gardens. As we left the coach you're asked to put a sticker on your case so the porter knows where your staying, even this was taken off us and all we had do was point. We were then escorted to our room with the porters carrying our cases and bags. The room was immaculate and was each day. The cleaner introduced himself at the start of the holiday and regularly asked through out our stay if everything was to our liking.
The whole hotel is being cleaned 24/7 it seems so is spotless everywhere.
There is free Wi/Fi where receipts with codes are obtained from reception for 2 hour periods, but there is no limit to how many you can have. And it works throughout the whole hotel grounds including rooms and pool etc.
The drinks at Magic life are more then adequate! with everything you could want from spirits to beer to red, white, rose, or sparkling wine and an extensive cocktail list. All the bars give you glass glasses witch is a nice touch, even around the pool, apart from the beach bar which are plastic.
The entertainment staff were the least pushiest i have ever experienced - they asked if you wanted to partake - if you said no, they said "Ok, no problem we hope you have a nice day"
Granted some of the barman around the pool bar and beach bar were a bit miserable, but this was not the case in the rest of the bars that were more for evening lounging should we say.
The food at the hotel was the best standard of food i have ever experienced. I have paid good money to eat out here in England and not seen the standard of food that was there in a buffet restaurant! The was so much choice of fresh food, and having the "themed" night mixed in with being able to attend the 3 A la carte restaurants you certainly wouldn't get bored of the choice.
The beach never seemed to get crowded, and the lay-out around the pool didn't make you feel you was laying there with 100s of people. Sun beds DO get "reserved" early even though theres signs saying its forbidden to do so, So you can stand by your principles and spend the morning walking around looking for a free bed, or join in and save one, and ease the guilt with that first cocktail of the day from the bar which was just the right distance as you got the bed you wanted!
Cons - Room numbers are long to remember, and some of the bar staff could do with smiling a bit more.
Pros - Too many to name, the spacious layout off the resort which meant you didn't feel crowded, the great tasting food and drink, the helpful staff, the list goes on!
Great hotel and i will certainly return, or check out the companies other hotels, even if they have got the tackiest sign in Egypt........
