“Laidback girls couldnt even handle this place!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Me and two other friends just got back from a five day holiday in Magaluf. We stayed in the playa apartments and we were shocked. The cleaners did not clean our room once, we ran out of toilet paper and all our towels were filthy. We also had cockroaches in our room that were crawling up the curtains!!! We are three extremely chilled out laidback party girls and this accomadation really put our holiday on a downer! i would recomment staying somewhere with no cockroaches if your planning on a trip to maga. Accomadation from hell. Dublin girls,21.

Myself and 4 friends went to magaluff for 3 nights before going to ibiza for 7 nights. We knew that for magaluff and how cheap it was that it was not going to be fantastic but we were shocked upon arrival at the cleanliness of the apartment. It was small dark and extremely untidy, there were splatters of blood in the beds (on the sheets) and on the air con (which didnt work). The toilet and shower head was hanging off the wall and our room was at the top of the stairs so the noise and door knocks were unbearable. We were lucky to only stay for a couple of nights but i feel sorry for people there for longer! Never go there!

Rooms were terrible! toilet wasn't fitted in properly, damp all over the walls, AC didnt work well, rooms were never cleaned and the pool was filled with salt and to top it off you get woken up by people pestering you trying to sell you things.......

Room Tip: Dont go into 7f or 7e my friends

I have just returned from Magaluf staying at the Playa Apartments for 7 nights with 4 girls.
I was almost dreading arriving here after staying at the Wavehouse last year (amazing but expensive) but we were so pleased. I expected a room with 2 beds and then a sofa bed with pull out in the living room however we actually had 4 beds which was amazing, there was plenty of room for 4 of us in the apartments and it was clean enough. Kitchen area was fine, fridge worked well with cups/plates etc. The shower room was good and the shower worked really well too and we never ran out of hot water. So the basics are perfect and all you need for a base - the location can't be beaten either! The aircon worked perfectly in both rooms and was sometimes even too cold. Now the downsides - you only get 4 towels, with 4 girls we need at least two each and one for the floor as not having one is a massive hazard - our room was also not cleaned once during the stay and you have to change your own towels, bed sheets and get toilet roll from reception - this isn't a massive issue but it would have been nice if i was cleaned even just once. It is also INCREDIBLY noisy, i have been to magaluf 4 times and obviously we don't come here to sleep but it's a bit of a joke - banging on doors all hours, music blaring people literally screaming all day and night so don't expect to be able to sleep ever unless you are hammered. PR's are also so annoying knocking on our doors all day trying to sell whatever they are selling. There is sometimes a security guard however anyone is allowed into the hotel whether a guest or not so could be dangerous.

Overall we were really pleased with our stay here and couldn't recommend it more if you want somewhere to get clean and then go and sleep on the beach!

Got home 4 days ago from staying with 5 female friends. We shared a two bedroom apartment with a sofa bed and pull-out bed in the living room.

The apartment was much better than we expected it to be when we arrived; spacious, clean, working air con in every room. The kitchen was small but it was only used occasionally and the bathroom wasn't the most luxurious but served its purpose. The beds were all perfectly comfy and you could change sheets and towels as often as you liked at reception.

The only irritating thing was that boiling the kettle tended to trip a fuse and so the electrics would go off, but it was easy to turn them back on again.

The reception staff were all lovely and eager to help, and very good about letting you into the apartment at some ungodly hour if your friends had the keys and you found yourself alone.

The pool was clean with plenty of sunbeds, however the men working at the bar around the pool like to tease and be very annoying, they got a bit much at times.

The reception is connected to The Nelson, a cafe/bar which does amazing fry ups for very reasonable prices and with very friendly staff - we ate here every morning. It also has free wifi which you can use sitting in reception so you don't even have to go into the cafe itself.

In the apartment in the early hours of the morning you can hear some noise from outside, but once you get tired it's not a problem and you can easily fall asleep. It's not possible to hear any noise from BCM, you can't hear any noise from BCM if you stand on the steps of it.

Great location - right next to BCM square, right next to a supermarket, very close to restaurants and other shops and about a 2 or 3 minute walk from the strip, and a 5 minute walk from the beach.

Would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone going to Magaluf and would be very happy to stay in them again.

Overall a great aparthotel for young people going to magaluf. 7 of us (girls) went for 7 days and couldn't have asked for more, although the male to female ratio was about 5:1 the rooms themselves were more spacious than anything else in magaluf. Clean on arrival with clean linens and towels, sheets were cleaned once more during our stay and you could swap your towels in reception as much as you wanted. Toilet paper also available at reception. Thought the lifts were a bit dodgey at times though, pool seemed fine but spent most of our time at the beach as it was over taken by lads! In all, it was a great time and Magaluf Playa's hospitality made it that way!

23 of us arrived at Magaluf Playa Apartments for a 3 night stay.We were checked in quickly by reception,and the rooms were allocated in the block on the far side of the pool,(be aware that a 150 euro deposit per room is mandatory to pay towards any damage caused during your stay)

We were 4 to a room on the 1st floor it comprised:

Kitchen/sleeping area combo(single bed/pullout drawer for bed 2),balcony overlooking pool/BCM Square)
Bedroom with 2 single beds
Bathroom with bath/shower combo,sink and toilet
Very basic accommodation,average level of cleanliness ok for us lot on a stag do ,but I doubt whether your wife or girlfriend would appreciate it!

Let's go outside into the sunshine,2 pools ,cleaned by a man with a fishing net every morning,removing KFC bones,kebabs (s@@@ slippers)(yours Dawesy cos wi me being a greedy lad
I eat mine LOL) and other things.......err we'll leave it at that,I don't want to put anyone off........

Loud music all day,cheap beer,service by Grace(she's got great ball skills.....),wall to wall sunshine ,and a fantastic bunch of lads to share it all with(not a bad egg among em!)

I sometimes think characters are on the decline....my thoughts are wrong.......

P DOG take a bow son ,you are a living legend,you should be in a best seller not a trip adviser review,You are the funniest man I've ever come across and made our trip what it was...A LAUGH A MINUTE,UNBELIEVABLE,MY RIBS ARE STILL ACHING FROM YOUR MADNESS....here's a brief list......but by no means exhaustive.......
Umbrella hat,propellers,2 dancing cows,mad glasses,catapults,owt that lights up,and buying the lucky lucky mans smelly African smock for 45 euro's plus your £50 All Saints shirt,strutting around the pool in it,diving in the pool to get rid of the reek of the rag ,standing dripping wet with a hand full of soaking euro's,then saying the immortal lines..........

"Mi mum sez I've got to think more before I do things"

BWAAAHHHHBWAHAHAHAHAHA...DEARY ME.........SOME MOTHERS DO 'AVE EM


Mr Andy Pearson take a bow,you were IMMENSE!

Ok what's left to say...loads more,I'll leave that to the other budding authors amongst us...

Magaluf is an awesome resort,and in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger "I'll be back".......

2015 reunion anyone?
