Reviewed 23 September 2011

Just got back from this hotel, not 4star as told by holiday company booked with, even the manager of this place told us this is just a basic hotel. If you like chicken you will love this place, lunch then dinner and boiled eggs for breakfast. Every salad had coriander on. the soup was unidentifiable. No snacks even though they advertised the fact they were supposed to be on 11am to 6pm. Drinks served 10am till 10.30pm then pay thats if the barmen could be bothered to serve you, and if your a woman you will be served after all the men. The pool bar is a machine with orange or blackcurrant coloured liquid, that is if it was working,nine times out of ten not, Tea and coffee machine stopped working 5days into holiday, but the tea was undrinkable anyway. To be fair the staff treated everyone the same, British, Iranians, Russians with equal contempt. Luckily most of the Holiday makers were nice and my Husband and I would like to thank the 3 Ladies from Newcastle for making this a more bearable time then would have. In our room the air conditioner sounded like rain falling on a polycabonate roof. The shower tray filled up so would have to take that quickley, then the other person would have to wait for the water to drain out, Room cleaning consisted of the house keeper putting your sheet back on staight every 3 or 4 days, We had no towels for the 1st day. And on the day we left I wrote clean me in the dust. This is the 1st time we have not left a tip for anyone. My Husband just chipped in to say They were all s**te. Kemer the actual resort is BORING same shops selling the same CRAP. Prices for everything hugely inflated. No entertainment any where. And if you think you will have a good time in the Magic Hotel FORGET IT. They close the Bar as quick as they can after 10.30pm and only serve warm s**te beer watered down Gin and Vodka, You never have a hangover no matter how much of this crap you drink. I reccomend bringing own alcohol and buying it from local small supermarket were you will still be overcharged but not pay as much as in this Hotel. Also they have a waterslide which was turned off the last 4days there. If you read this review and still decide to go be prepared for the most basic holiday and to eat boiled chicken and coriander all the time, We wonder if they have a pillow factory out back from all these dead chickens.

Me and my missus went here for a week last year. Got a really cheap last minute all inclusive deal.

Ok, it wasn't the Ritz but to us the food was fine and the room was clean.

To be fair, we were adults , have travelled a bit, can actually stand each other's company and were able to spend a week in the proximity of non-English speaking people who didn't pander to the English - and not cry our eyes out at night for dear old Blighty. Clearly in the minority here!

There were a few drunken Poles/Russians (hey. it was a free bar) but they didn't harm anyone and to be honest it was a nice break not hearing drunken (insert British accent here) accents for 7 days. To be fair the worst part of the holiday was sharing a plane there/back with drunken Glaswegians.

At the end of the day, if you got a cheap deal and went here with any expectations at all then your naive at best. And if you booked this and it wasn't a cheap deal then you are just stupid.

I went with my brother and friend, both of which are uasually a good laugh. Magic hotel was so bad we couldn't even joke about it. If value for money, hygiene or relaxation are on your list of holiday requirements DO NOT book this hotel. To say this is a four star hotel is an insult. From start to finish it was sub-standard. Rooms are small and dirty. Staff are ignorant at best. The food is very poor, maybe recycled from earlier meals. Bar, well they served they cheapest of drinks and did thier best to restrict the amount of drinks they served and there was no ice dispite it being 40 degrees plus. If I continue with this review I'm going to need prozak to calm me down: Bottom line DON'T DO IT!!!!! The worst hotel I have ever stayed in........

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.

Went to this hotel for a week . we had week of hell , staff were very rude did not speak English , did not get any help from anyone were told they only cater for Russians and Germans , food was horrible nothing English,
suppose to have snacks during the day what a laugh only had 1 tray of turkish cakes at 4pm ,
Bar well what can i say as its all inclusive you would expect to get a drink 3 days they ran out of beer at 10.am wasnt back on till 7pm only other drink available was vodka or soft drinks which they ran out of daily, bar staff would only serve you if they felt like it .
rooms were filthy cleaners only came in every other day and only made the beds .
entertainment that didnt exsist was suppose to be disco at 10.pm till 4pm only if enough people asked.
pool bar consisted of a juice machine yet again ran out of juice
were not allowed to take food or drink in to hotel,
The only thing good was the bus to come home.

It's like a hooror movie, fully drunk Russians who fight every night, staff would try to get ur girlfriend into the bed, they fight with guest as well, it's like bunch of ugly looking criminals became waitres.
Make sure no expensive cloths or jeliwery left in the room, you won't see them again.
If u think about your safety please think again. If u don't get guns with you.

We arrived at the hotel around 1am we were given our rooms which were separated from our family. One room was on the ground floor one of the 1st floor and one on the second! We were given no food/drinks upon arrival and were told off for taking our own drinks into OUR room! The bar opened at 10am and shut at 22:30 EVERY day. The bar staff were awful and favoured the russians/germans/iranains over any of the English customers. Even the receptionist said the hotel did not cater for the English. We later went on to find out that the hotel had been on Watchdog which we had not been told whilst booking, there was no entertainment AT ALL and we would find ourselves eating out most of the time as the food was the same day in day out. I was here with my parents and friends we were once told to go to bed at 9:30pm! The manager of the kitchen was terrible who refused to get anything for us even when no other staff were in the kitchen! Communication was terrible and only one member of staff could speak a little English! We complained the day we got to the hotel as our rooms were filthy, mould was growing in the bathroom there was crumbs on the floor and the room smelt terrible! We later all got moved onto the same floor once ringing hayes and demanding to me moved. The pool and gym were okay but cat poo was littered around the hotel. Also kittens were on our balcony and would often roam the hotel during the middle of the night. We asked for the 'disco' that had been advertised but got told that not enough people wanted it so we wouldn't be having one this week! We were pushed in front of in the que at lunch and dinner by the other customers. Most of the residents were Turkish, Russian or German. I would not reccomend this hotel and neither would some of the staff at the hotel! There is NO night life at the hotel and you have to entertain yourself so completely defeated the objective of going ALL INCLUSIVE! Steer clear of this hotel if you except night life, entertainment, good food or even good communication! Is the worst hotel I have ever been too in my life! Will be filing a complaint asap! Also the 'free internet wifi' provided cuts out whenever it wants to and was often not available for the whole day!

Room Tip: Just steer clear of the hotel!
