Even though when booking Hotel Florida I had read many great reviews, I was still slightly nervous after reading some bad reviews, as I am only twenty-four and was travelling by myself, visiting friends in the resort, however I cannot fault this hotel at all! Hotel Florida is in such a great location of Magaluf (please request a sea-view on booking as the views are amazing), as you have easy access and a short walk to the beach, restaurants, Magaluf strip and Palma Nova, however at the same time you are in such a quiet area, you never experience noise from Magaluf itself.
Unfortunately I never experienced food in the hotel as I was never up in time for breakfast, however I have to credit the hotel staff for their hospitality. On my departure day back home, I had to check out very early for my flight and the staff made sure I had access to breakfast and drinks before leaving, which I have to admit after a week of partying and not much sleep, set me up nicely for the long travel back home. Also upon checking out the staff made sure I knew about my transfer, which I thought was very kind of them. I also have to add the drink prices were very reasonably priced, it was roughly round about 4euros for a cocktail. If you require wifi it's only 10euros for the week, however most local bars and restaurants provide you with free wifi.
The hotel rooms were very clean and cleaners came in everyday to provide clean towels and bedsheets. The hotel room was ideal for me as I was by myself, however even though I booked a double room, the only fault I could pick with the room is if their was two of you, the room could end up being a little bit cramped. I have to say the swimming pool was amazing, ideal for relaxing, with superb views and you would never think you were in Magaluf.
This is one of the best holidays I have experienced and after feeling slightly nervous about visiting Magaluf after hearing some not so good reviews, I have completely fallen in love with the place and will be going back next year, therefore if you want to try Magaluf but be also staying away from the hustle and bustle then this is the hotel for you!! As I was staying by myself, I felt incredibly comfortable during my stay in this hotel and everybody I met in this hotel whether staff or holidaymakers were incredibly welcoming.
I would recommend this hotel to couples, families and groups of friends, however if you are a party of big lads or girls then this maybe not the place for you, as the hotel likes to keep noise from hotel residents to a minimum, which I hugely respect, therefore that is why next year I will be staying elsewhere, as this was the only problem I experienced during my stay. As I was visiting friends out in Magaluf and staying by myself, it would of been nice if I could of had my friends round on evenings, however hotel security would stop any non residents from entering
the hotel, therefore that is the only reason I would not stop at the hotel again. If I was going away with a boyfriend or family I wouldn't hesitate in stopping here again!!
Avoid the opposite end of Magaluf as it is so easy to get mugged and it is great to be made aware of this.
