We recently returned from another trip to the lovely Magnolias, and glat to see that it's still the best. This is our first time back to the complex since the bar area got it's "makeover".
I am still not convinced that this was a good move as it divided the bar/ restaurant area into an inside area and an outside area. In the past we have had some good caberet nights here but these have been done away with now, as a result of the recent "makeover. I always looked forward to these nights, as it provided a great opportunity to meet the other guests.
The only other issue I have, is with the air-conditioning. You need a remote control to operate the air-conditioning, this can be obtained from reception (free of charge) and then you can have your bungalow air-conditioned, but only until midnight, then, you are requested to turn it off. Even though the air-conditining main unit is outside (it sits outside the bathroom window) it still creates a lot of noise for both bungalow's, and when you have a neighbour who leaves the unit on all night, I'm afraid that it's hard to get a good night's sleep, even with some alcohol on board.
Some items that deem worthy of a mention. The well stocked library, books of all languages.
The games area, the key can be got at reception. Bike hire, free bus to the beach and Playa del Ingles. Day visitors are not tolerated, which is great.
Faro 2, or what's left of it, is about 20 minutes walk, here you will find the nearest supermarket.
Bar prices have reduced, so too have the food prices.
The complex has a system which allows you to charge to your bungalow number, the food and drink that you get, for the duration of your stay. You simply sign for what you get, when you get it, and pay your bill on the day you go home. A brillant system, after all who wants to be carrying money around with them, it's not as if you have any pockets on you.
Just be careful, because I ended up with being over-charged, I brought it to the bar maids attention and she rectified it for me. This was a genuine mistake, but just bear it in mind.
All round great venue for that special holiday, on our way back in the new year.
