Just returned from a two week stay at the Fiesta Sahara and i am relieved to say i had a really good experience. We traveled as a group of 6 girls aged 19-21 on a girly holiday but after reading so many bad reviews beforehand we were very apprehensive about our stay. First impressions of the hotel in all honesty were terrible but this was due to a number of factors such as arriving at 4am when most of the drunk people were just coming in , in a dingy lift to a noisy corridor full of pissed people whilst we were tired and having to maneuver our luggage. The only thing i would say would say on arrival is to be ready to pay a 30 euro deposit each and have some euro's to get a safe ( We put all our valuables in a safe and nothing was stolen!) we even sometimes left money on the sides in the room and ipods and phones around and nothing was stolen in the whole two weeks.Secondly , if your not bothered by the noise the lack of air con will be the next problem , this is possibly the only real problem i found with the hotel it is far too hot on an evening and in a morning and the ceiling fans just circulate the warm air around , we hired a fan from the reception for 3 euros a day and it was totally worth it ! After the initial shock of the hotel we had a fab time , its basic , kept very clean (the maids do an excellent job considering the state of some of the rooms!)fun and lively hotel! Its location is really good across from Mallorca rocks and only a short walk away from both the strip and the beach. The pool area is huge and has music playing all day , no umbrellas around the pool area though which is problematic if you have sun burn hence we spent most days at the beach but all in all it was a really good place to stay if your young and going on a girls/lads holiday! There were a few problems with our room such as balcony door not locking properly and other minor issues but nothing major . DEFINITELY NOT FOR FAMILIES AT THIS TIME OF YEAR!!! there were one or two families which i saw whilst we were there but the majority of people in high season are aged 18-30 causing lots of noise at night and coming in in the early morning, the music around the pool area is loud and generally the hotel clearly caters for young people at this time of year! Hotel security guards were quite strict on people who did not stop in the hotel , our friends from another hotel came round to get ready with us one night and were refused entry , however people from other hotels did get in so its not impossible! Staff were relatively friendly and polite and we had no problems at all! For the kind of holiday we wanted this hotel was perfect clean tidy and had all the basic essentials.
Great for young people going on a drinking holiday! Families go somewhere nice not to maga!!!!
