“Downhill since TRH took over”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2009

I went with my family to this hotel when it was run by Barcelo when i was 14 and again at 16, we absolutely loved it and actually classed it as one of the BEST and funniest holidays ive ever been on. 2 of us decided to return after 5 years to the same place and after reading the reviews we werent put of as we've experienced the place before hand. Id now say that id never go back and its such a shame. The hotel reception is still as grand as it always was and the rooms still fairly clean etc.
On our 3rd night there (first night sleeping in the livingroom as it was too noisey in the bedroom) we were woken up by a man banging on what seemed like next doors door it was that loud!! it was actually happening on the 9th floor and we were on the 7th in room 711. We waited as we thought his friend would open the door....instead he carried on for atleast 15mins until he put his fist through the fire extinguisher case and started using the fire extinguisher to try and beat the door down. Our neigbours and i tried to get through to him but he was too wasted to understand. He was reported to the hotel reception and they called the police to take him away. 3 hours later he was let back in the hotel and continued to do the same thing for a WEEK! We had alot of shocked reactions when people asked how long we were staying for and we responded with 2 weeks.....they must have felt sorry for us!! We asked to change rooms half way through but they were fully booked and couldnt carry out our request.....fully booked due to some kind of local school trip! Their must have been no more than 10 british people around the pool in the end due to all the locals taking over.
The streets are full of middle-aged perverts, hen partys and stag do's which is what we expected but not to that degree. Its a shame as the Restaurant Liria is fantastic (at the bottom of the hill to the right) They treat you like royalty and if we could pick that place up and move it somewhere else then we would!! We're 21 and love going out at home in chester but magaluf is for a different class of person.
If you are single....and of ANY age and dont mind being hassled i wouldnt want you not to try it as you'd love it! But i need another holiday to recover from this one....what an experience!

We stayed there for 5 nights- we absolutley had the time of our lives! It's just few meters to the beach, 5 mins to the biggest club in Mallorca- BCM, very clean, great staff, friendly enviroment, everyone were sooo helpful- it was dream holiday! And it's very cheap. I loved it and will go again! Magalf is not a place for families- it's a party town so obviously don't go there if yo have 5/6 kids with you- that is just mad anyway. The hill isn't that bad- it's about 40sec walk so you will be fine. It's totally, totally worth it! I will go there again!!

Having just returned from a weeks stay at this hotel, I felt i must write a review as i stressed myself out for 2 weeks prior to going after reading the reviews on this site!!! I dont know what people are on about this hotel was lovely the staff were friendly the hotel was clean it was 2 mins from the beach and the nightlife, the pool was lovely all in all a perfect hotel and holiday for people wanting to go away and relax by day and party by night me and my friend did not had a bad word to say about it!!!!! Yes it could be noisy at time but what do you expect your in MAGALUF!!!! I would definetly return to this hotel and the people who we met whilst staying there were all of the same opinion that it was A GREAT HOTEL :-)

JUst arrived back from Majorca after staying 3 nights in the TRH Palma Nova.
The Good points first.... Beach across the road.
The Bad Points..... Not in Palma Nova but a stone throw from the Magaluf Strip.
Having complained to the Female receptionist who was rude and arrogant about the noise until 6AM I was informed that the
palma nova was a PARTY HOTEL and that she was fed up with agents sending KIDS and people like ME!! to the hotel.
Asked if she then was saying the noise was acceptable by the hotel she again replied it was a party hotel!!! She said when people ring up she tells them that this is a part y hotel...
None of the brochures (thomson , first choice) state this is a party hotel only that it is in a prime location which it was.
It was full of stags and hen partys and young lads upto there eyes with testosterone.
They started the noise at 1am wich continued WITHOUT a break
until 5/6 am.
Doors banging, buzzers buzzing, running up and down corridors
shouting screaming. Then there was the dogs!! yes two huge st bernard types bark bark bark ALL NIGHT. The revellers didnt help as they wound them up on there return to the hotel.
If you have children and you have booked this hotel change now before you have a nightmare break. There was no entertainment for children, in fact there was only a handfull on children which I saw.
The pool is a no no for beds unless while your awake you put your towel on the beds at 3am.
We went to the beach at 8am to sleep and didnt return until tea for a shower and then returned for bed, which was pointless.
I might as well have slept on the beach!!!
This is 100% honest and genuine, I am 40 and my daughter is 20, I am no bore and enjoy a good laugh, but no sleep for 4 days was not funny.
The staff are not helpfull and the room had nothing in it, not that we were in it much. I didnt eat or dink there so can not comment on the prices.....
If you 18 you will be able to do what you want at this hotel, if your a family, get out while you can !!!!!!!!

We booked theTRH Torrenova,but finished up here....First day by the pool involved our ears being bombarded by'rave'music at full blast,.whilst watching a gang of 20 or so lager louts,swearing and baring 'ALL'.At night we couldnt sleep for lager louts and barking dogs,after finally falling asleep at 5'oclock ,we were woken at 6'oclock by delivery vans and refuge collectors.There was no entertainment (other than above said rave music),Staff were friendly enough,rooms were clean enough,though basic.The hill is quite steep,but it didnt bother us too much.I would only recommend this hotel to stag and hen parties,it is not for couples wanting a relaxing holiday,families or more mature people..We would not come here again!!!!!!!!

sal and i went to majorca for a few days rest and sun.we booked this hotel as we thought that it was in palma nova as we are no youngsters and prefer the flat.

what a shock when we got there and saw that hill(small mountain more like), this basically spoiled our stay..

the hotel itself is the worst that we have stayed in on majorca. the staff are unhelpful, the room was grubby and tucked away in a corner with no views. we had one change of linen in four days.there was no kettle unless you hired one.the tv was all in spanish. the pool area seemed to have one tape/cd which consisted of crap music and only around 40 sunbeds for over 500 rooms most of which had a towel on from early morning.

there were some noisy residents(youngsters)which doesn't really bother us until they start at 6am and no staff intervene.

the resort itself we can't fault and as regular visitors we find that it caters for all age groups.some areas are loud but are easily avoidable.

for good cheap food and friendly staff go to the happy house on magaluf beach and a good bar is the fountain which although not cheap gives free entertainment.the elvis impersonator(mike jones) is particularly good.

don't let this review put you off magaluf as we have stayed in some excellent apartments at good prices

A Group of 35 people ranging from 2 - 80 yrs stayed here from Tuesday the 5th to Tues the 12th of May. We booked as a group with Falcon Travel.

The first point I will make is about the Rep in the Hotel. Adam is the guys name and a true gent. Adam helped us in every way possible its just a pity he is stuck in this hotel.

Second point. The Hotel. We found it ok nothing spectacular. It is on a very very steep hill. Dont let the travel companies fool you this is very steep even for me at 39.
It is also in Magaluf not in Palmanova again this is in the brochure to catch people.

The Hotel caters at weekends and in some cases mid week for Stag parties and Hen Parties. The openly hire outfits for the above at reception.

I like a bit of Fun on holidays but this place takes the biscuit. It is for party party only. Unless your on sleeping tablets you will not get a wink. If its not the stag/hen parties its the two st Bernard dogs across the road sining the night / Dawn Chorus not to mention the Cockrel and Phesants screeching.

It seems that letting people run around the pool in the nip with Children nearby as well as play soccer also in the nip is OK.

We spoke to a lot of people who felt they had also been hoodwinked into thinking the Hotel is in Palmanova. They were none too impressed.

If you have a family or are looking for a relaxing holiday please find another Hotel.

Last of all they food. It was excellent. We ate out and found the Florida 1 / 2 was good for Breakfast. We ate Dinner at the El Mecca and also at a French Bistro called EL PETIT. These we found to be excellent.

Majorca is a fantastic Island with its many shows like Sonnamar etc dont ruin it by picking the wrong accomodation. Cheers
