Universal Hotel Florida
Ranked #9 of 28 Hotels in Magaluf
Reviewed July 29, 2008

We stayed at this hotel for a week in July. There were 10 girls and we had 3 rooms between us.
All the rooms were clean and tidy and good quality. The food in the hotel is excellent. A very wide range of food for breakfast and evening meal - something to suit everyone.
The pool is lovely - difficult to get a sunbed sometimes unless you are up early, but lots of space to use a lilo instead!
Bar staff are friendly and there is a good service.
It's a bit of a walk down the hill to the nightlife but it gets easier as the week goes on! And its not noisy in the area as its just out of the nightlife

Overall:
excellent location - close to nightlife and beach but far enough away for some peace.
Good food - enough choice for everyone and a lovely restaurant.
Good staff - very friendly and will assist with anything
Good rooms - tidy and clean with daily maid service.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would use it again if we went back to magaluf.

Hotel florida is really nice , good choice of food for Half board. Stayed in the english block of the hotel which was really quiet. It is a german owned hotel but it is really clean. Didnt manage to get by the pool. Drinks are reasonably priced much cheaper than some in magaluf itself. View from the balcony was amazing really nice to wake up to every morning!!

I definately would reccommend hotel florida to anyone!! Just be warned of the hill you do get used it but in 30c plus heat its a struggle!! But you are away from the noise of the strip. Walk into palma nova is lovely too.

The only bad thing i can say about Hotel Florida is the bloody hill you have to go up and down!! ITS A KILLER!!! saying that, Magaluf strip is right at the bottom and everything is in walking distance!
Always greeted with a smile and it's really clean. Spent the 1st two days on the beach and then stayed in the hotel for the rest of the stay. Make sure you get your towels out early though!!

Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays it's full of Hen and Stag do's but a bloody good atmosphere. I didn't do any of the excursions but i really wish i did. Look out for the Booze Cruise and the Pirates Night.

Couldn't have asked for anything more!!

Ok before i start, Don't look at the online pictures of this complex....its Bullxxxx!! The place looks liek a freakn jail/jungle!
As we arrived ...where we greeted with a smile? and a welcome? NO! Nothing of the sort no help with luggage or anything! We wer placed in the German/ French building with a pimp next door! We are a group of four young friends and just wanted an enjoyable holiday we are not loud or did not make that much noise, however... we wer foned constantly, one in particular was a threat "shoes off or out on the street" terrible if you ask me!
The security guards wer unreasonable, we wer not aloud 2 make any noise they followed us with torches it was like being in a james bond sequal! If you think you can bring anyone back with you then think again! you aint allowed and trust me they will catch you fi you try! they are impossible! An also on numerous occasions my friend staceys shorts went missing an no we are not accusing but the cleaner had on the exact ones in the morning!!!!!!!! They bang bang bang on your door and dont stop till you awake! aghhh! You are not allowed floats in the pool or no music! The food consists riscotto with fish eyes its just mainly fish fish fish now im a big fish eater myself but it was just way 2 much!Oh las thing the reps bump you off! wel apart form tht magaluf itself is amazing!!!!! go 2 bannanas xx love lori brown

Loved our stay at the hotel florida very clean and relatively newly renovated hotel with fantastic views from the balcony. Food was average for HB but it was really the lively atmostphere and very relaxed and helpful staff that made it so great. I would recommend florida for young couples and singles mainly but the hotel is set with two main blocks one where thay keep the young and roudy and one for families and older travellers.It was a great hol to meet new people and everyone was there for a good time it was very relaxing by the pool and there is great access down some steps to the sea for a refreshing swim. Set on a hill but only 5min to the beach and the main strip of bars set at the bottom. local shop so did not have to walk down for suppies would definately recommend and hopfully going back next year.Do not be put off by any of the reviews no complaints here.

We booked Hotel Florida over 9 months in advance for a special birthday, which they knew about. We arrived, got all our luggage off the minibus and were told at reception there was a slight problem. Well it wasn't exactly slight as they'd overbooked us to another (completely substandard) hotel!

To make matters worse our minibus driver had gone and were we offered a taxi with all our luggage? No, we had to drag it through the streets to the other hotel TRH Palma Nova.

We also had friends that had booked later and as Florida was fully booked they booked into the sister complex Villasol as it shared the facilities. Another inconvenience as with the move they were now a long walk from our hotel.

The hotel does look good and gets excellent reviews but if you're like me and research, check reviews, etc before booking your accommodation then you're wasting your time at Florida. The reviews mean nothing when they transfer you to a poor substitute!

when i looked at hotels in magaluf i stumbled across this well presented hotel with indifferent reviews. i decide to book the florida and am so glad that i did. 3 lads from sheffield stayed there and we all were amazed at how clean and well looked after it was. the most amazing view welcomed us as we opened our balcony doors, the ocean and an island known as lizard island. BREATHTAKING is the best way to describe it. The staff were always helpful and friendly especially the welcomer at mealtimes a happy very pleasant man called miguel.I would recommend this hotel to absolutely anyone young or old. it has something for everyone. the only thing that annoyed me were the prostitutes at the top of the hill near our hotel the police did not want to move them , but thats nothing to do with the hotel. WILL DEFINITELY GO AGAIN. LEE FROM SHEFFIELD
