“Surprisingly good!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2011

Basic rooms, some with bunkbeds but clean and tidy with a small kitchenette. We travelled as an all girl party of 14, ages ranging from 25 - 40. We payed budget prices and didn't expect a lot but we were very surprised and would stay again. Breakfast is spot on!!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter.

Thank you for your review, we are really pleased that you were pleasantly surprised at the quality of Sotavento. At Sotavento we are fairly unique in Magaluf as the entire property has recently been refurbished including all the public areas as well as all the apartments, I think our rating on Tripadvisor as Magaluf´s No 1 self catering apartments confirms the differnce in quality at Sotavento.

Just come back from a girlie holiday away. The staff were friendly and helpful, food and drink was lovely and the dj played some good music. The hill you have to walk up to get there was a bit of a nightmare but after a few drinks it didn't seem that bad. The pool was clean and there were plenty of sunbeds to go around. A fantastic 4 nights away!

OMGGGG...Loved the place! Check in was at 4am on the 31st Aug '11, 80Euro deposit requested at check in, but we knew about that anyways :)

1st floor apartment, sleeps 6 was LUSH.. Bunk beds were snug, not that you care when ya mortal anyways!..girls on sofa-beds said they would prefer propa beds!
Wouldnt complain about the rooms, cleaner came 2x a week to empty bins and supply new sheets, but new towels were every other day :) MAKE SURE U REPORT ANY PROBLEMS U FIND IN YA ROOM OR U MIGHT END UP GETTING CHARGED!!!

Few nights, Angel (night worker) knocked on the door for us to be quiet (laughing to loud or shouting, usually about 5/6 in the morning!!)... annoyin at the time but overall thats probs why the hotel was sooo nice. You do get a "warning - eviction from the hotel!" soooo.. If ya after an absolutallllly ridiculously mental holiday with no standards..stay at Mallorca Rocks or Honolulu.. Sotavento is too nice for idiots!! LOL.

Hotel shop/restaurant/bar isnt expensive :) and just over the road is a 24Hour shop in another hotel :)
2 reps Alan + Kristian give u a mint time on the Bar Crawls, all the bar crawls start at Sotavento too :D ...BEWARE - You end up hammered for ur 15Euro! :-P Best Nights!!!!!!!
Theres a DJ by the pool everyday blastin brilliant tunes from about 11/12 til late.. MINT atmosphere round the pool. Nearly always enough sunbeds... games and belta craic :D

All the staff are mint.. Including the SMB Rico !! ;-) Met some absolutally lush people :)
DEFO RECOMMENDED AND WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK!!!!!!!!! :D

Lotsa Love, MAGA'11

Loved it here. The staff are very warm and very helpful. The pool is amazing and rooms lovely too. We really enjoyed our stay and are already thinking of coming back again next year. The only thing is it is at the top of a hill but all 6 of us managed fine and plenty of bars or shops to take a break on the way up if needs be. Plus you can always get a taxi which reception will ring for you and have them pick you up at the door. Can not say enough about this place it was amazing. If you are thinking of going to Magaluf stay here :)

Well, where do you start...there were 6 girls staying thursday to sunday. We all shared an appartment, beds were comfy, glad i didnt sleep on the top though as i fell out of the bottom one when a little bit drunk...very clean. We were on the ground floor near reception so not far to roll into!! 80 euros deposit incase of damages but got that back not a problem. The whole hotel was very clean, pool was lush, DJ everyday playing music so you didnt have to listen to your Ipod and be unsociable, drinking games thrown in with that as well...the sun cream game went down well ;-) drinks are reasonably priced but may be cheaper for you to get a crate of cider or what ever from the Supermarket which is on site. Thursday pub crawl with the Reps was brilliant, 16.50 euro and honest to god i was literally not standing by the end of it, Allan, Chris Joe and bar manager (cant remember his name) looked after us all and were constantly coming round pouring shots down your neck!!! definately reccomend that! The hill isnt that bad, like everyone says when you have had a few drinks you dont even notice it!! The hotel security through the night are strict but thats good, you dont get everyone walking in and out of the hotel and they dont take no hassle when it comes to noise, you have to respect that which is fair enough. We didnt spend a great deal either, when you go on the strip and you are approached by a PR rep to go into their bar you have to do deals with them, we ended up getting into a night club for FREE and drinking for FREE as we were on a Hen Night!! Didnt make it to BCM as we were drinking far too much in the bars but have been there before! Went to Coyote Bar again, amazing as usual, we danced on the bar for ages!! We are definately going back next year and will make it a annual trip to this hotel, also Peter from the hotel was emailing me back very quickly with regards to any questions i had about the hotel and when i met him, he were lovely!!! Once again, thank you for making our trip so goodm memories are priceless xxxxx

there was 7 of us mixed group which stopped at the sotavento (4 went for 2 weeks) we however just went for the week. the holiday ways great the reps were helpful and didnt really bother us. i thought that they are abit tight on rules but ever hotel is different. we got allocated to our room which was on the third floor and had a pool view which was excellent. we also made a deposit of 80 euros for damages.. but we arrived into our room with damages such as graffiti on the beds. so we told reception straight away. we didnt really want to get charged for somthing we didnt do:). the pool was great pool parties everyday. sometimes the workers would come in on their days off and get hammerd.. they were quite annoying. but more of less ya gona get that everywhere you go. mallorca rocks in one of them things you have to do when your in maga. its 35 euros then 20 euros for drink vouchers (5 drinks) but honestly youd get bladded on them anyway. bcm is a right deal aswell 35 euros for all you can drink all night. great night out too! we also went to western waterpark which was goooood! even if it rained. we eat out everyday TOM BROWN'S IS THE BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD. proper english foood :) oh i must admit going in a large group on stripe is more of an advantage. your gona get so many cheaper deals as you walk up. and a tip the dj called danny is sooo annoyying.
but yes id stop at the sotavento again it was a lovely hotel just a shame about cardiac hill. and its ages away from mc Donalds. :((

Hi, Thank you for leaving a review on the site, guest feedback is always great to hear. Just for clarity, on your headline "hotel is soo far out", I think from reading your review several times you are refering to the distance from McDonalds? As you know Sotavento is probably one of the best placed hotels in Magaluf, less the 5 minutes walk from the strip and an even shorter distance to the beach, so I am not really sure that your statement about being so far out is fair and could be misleading to other people reading the review. I am glad that you enjoyed our pool parties and also that you found the hotel lovely and would stay here again. If you do visit us again remember you get an extra discount as a repeat guest. Thanks again for your comments. Peter.
