Where to start, I stayed at magnific hotel for a week in the middle of June with my girlfriend and 2 other couples.
Upon arrival reception staff were fairly unhelpful and uninviting, it seemed a lot of trouble for them to help you although a man did carry our bags to the rooms which we were very grateful for.
Rooms were basic, but very clean and cleaners came daily. Fridge was minimally stocked and wasn't replenished throughout the week. Bathroom was too basic but did the job, was nice to have a wooden balcony to sit on in the afternoon.
The pool was beautiful, clean and looked especially good in the evening. Entertainment was mediocre but staff did well to get the guests involved.
The food was good, plenty of selection both hot and cold, was not a fan of the desserts finding them bland despite a huge selection. Ice-cream was good and brought out twice a day for an hour but would have liked it to have been available more. The snack bar was open most of the day which was great.
The worst- the bar
Grew increasingly irritated with the bar and the bar staff. Particularly memet who was miserable and rude, also pouring a dribble of alcohol into each tiny glass and then getting visibly annoyed when asking for another 5 minutes later. If you don't want people to keep coming up for drinks give them a decent sized glass and measure of alcohol. The manager was stood around the bar a couple of hours before close and at 11.50 one evening I heard him tell a man that he couldn't have anymore drinks because the bar was closed even though there was 10 minutes. Bang on 12 they shut the bar immedietly and wouldn't serve anyone who had already been waiting beforehand.
The music from the clubs and bars is very loud, luckily I am a heavy sleeper but others would be kept awake, definitely unsuitable for older couples.
Overall hotel magnific is fairly good value for money but the bar and reception staff definitely need to crack a smile to customers as they come across as very rude. Though the restaurant men were very kind and polite. I'm not sure if I would stay at this hotel again due to the reasons listed. I hope you found this review helpful!
