The Flamboyan Caribe takes the title of the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in Magaluf.
I have been coming to Maga for 10 years and have even worked a summer here so know what to expect.
There is absolutely NO WAY this hotel can be a 4 star. The only reason it has been awarded 4 stars is because it has a spa and Jacuzzi's on the deck outside. Facilities count a lot for the star ratings.
We arrived and were impressed by the decor, but that is where it stopped. They young Spanish chap on reception was really nice but when he told us we would be staying in the Caribe building I knew what to expect due to reading reviews on here.
The Caribe building is unmanned and is more like an apartment block. The room size was fine although there were some problems:
The pillows are poor and you really need 2 each. We made a request on the 1st night for 2 further pillows and they failed to deliver
The TV didn't work
THE BALCONY DOOR LOCK DID NOT WORK - Security issue there!
The shower head did not work properly and the jets that did work felt like they would pierce our skin it was that bad.
The hotel is very very noisy. A lot of people go out on the balcony when they get back from the clubs between 2 and 5 am and speak as loud as they can. The beach has been illuminated by security lights so again people pile there after the clubs and it is noisy as well.
One bunch of idiots decided it would be good to throw furniture out of their room at 5 am. I was woken up by a massive crash - not what you expect from a 4 star.
The staff are moody and are not welcoming.
The breakfast is ok but again the staff are very poor.
The spa is poor, anyone who actually praises the spa clearly has not been to a proper one.
Massages are carried out by the MALE life guard - this guy is a multi-tasker.
To top it off we were chased out of the hotel bang on 11am by the cleaners and reception who called our room. No chance that was happening, we took our time and checked out around 20 past 11. The receptionist just took our key and didn't even say bye or thank you for staying.
The pool area was ok, The beds are not comfy. You can get a bed around 9am as everyone in the hotel is still sleeping. We had 7 or 8 guests come to the pool one day and they made so much noise literally everyone left the pool area for lunch..
I would never stay here again, even if it was for free. If you are 17-24 years old and single with nothing between your ears it is a viable option.
