It's true you can get much cheaper deals in Magalluf but I felt this hotel was worth the extra cash. Stayed on 8th May for 4 nights with a group of middle aged guys and it suited us down to the ground. Didn't see too many youngsters though I'm sure they do stay here in greater numbers in the Summer months. A pretty quiet hotel with a very large (cold!) pool - again I'm sure it heats up by August.
We were lucky and had great weather. Short, 8 min walk to the beach. It's the 'bottom end' of Magalluf ie the Southern end. Well away from the Strip which gets a bit crazy. Oh, and on that subject the PR guys & gals are much more pushy these days. Walk from place to place individually and they won't bother you so much. They're only interested in larger groups. If, like us, you frequent the Plaza Cafe in the evenings it's about a 15 min walk, no more.
Went half board and the food was pretty good. Lots of variety. One of our group felt it was a little 'samey' but I didn't. Down to personal taste I suppose. Staff were very friendy and they booked us in as soon as we arrived at 9.30am which surprised us as we expected to have to store our bags until the afternoon. The lady receptionist put our rooms next to each other too. Rooms very clean - absolutely spotless - but the cleaners respected your 'Do Not Disturb' sign if you wanted a lie-in.
We're off again next May and will almost certainly book here again.
