myself and my fiance have been to magaluf many times before, i am an ex holiday rep and he is a fan of boys holidays to magalluf...so we know what to expect from the area and we love it!
HOWEVER...this hotel was so boring!
the hotel mainly caters for french guests...this wouldnt bother me if they made a little effort to cater for our needs too...for example actually realising we were endglish and not shouting bonjour!!!! bon apppetite at us all the time.
we didnt even bother to go and see the evening entertainment as we knew we wwouldnt understnd what they were saying, and quite frankly the entertainers got on our wit!
the food in the resturaunt was ok....good choice and usually well heated and well presented...not impressed with there being no beans at breakfast....typically english but thats whaat i expected...and my fiance walked around the dessert table dissapointed that he had no custard to put on his dry piece of chocolate cake!!
also this year and the year before my fiance and i suffered acidy feelings in our throat after eating/drinking at the hotel...maybe its just over indulgence or too much cleaning fluid in the beer pumps?!?!?!...i think i tasted cleaning fluid on several occasions.
ON A GOOD NOTE....the restaraunt staff were lovely and polite and the restuarnt always looked clean and tidy.
on check in your are given a wristband to help you to access the all inclusive facilities in the hotel...fine lovely...EXCEPT that you are racially banded by nationality
all pool activities anre held in the smaller of the 2 pools that is mainly used by the french guests....the other pool at the back is used by british people but there is no pool activities what so ever at this pool.
the room was clean and tidy, we had 3 single beds...would have preffered a double as falling dowwn the gap at 4am isnt fun....spare bed was good for putting our case on.
Shower had no pressure and felt more like water tourture than a refreshing shower, i ran a bath on one night as shower annoyed me....this took an hour to fill up!
balcony was clean...2 chairs and a table, view was rubbish though....right over the hotel entrance...interesting to watch people arguing out the front though i suppose.
to get away we went to our good friend paco's bar (the balmoral) which is just down the road from this hotel,and supped on lots of his brilliant drinks offers.
plenty of sunbeds,quick check in,cheap safety deposit box,cleaners were lovely,
we spent alot of time outside the hotel so it didnt really bother us...but if we didnt know the area and wanted a hotel pool kind of holiday this hotel would have been our worst nightmare!!!
