6 of us stayed here for 3 nights for 2 of the lasses 30th birthdays, brilliant hotel! All of the staff are lovely thank you to Peter for allocating our rooms together. Huge thank you to Enrique who helped me out massively when I had my phone stolen (lesson learnt, don't take anything valuable to BCM) can't thank you enough.. Brilliant atmosphere around the pool, great food served at the hotel. Yes the hill walking up to the hotel is big but when your're drunk its easier, just watch out for the little bollard balls which are easy to trip over when you don't watch where you're going. As I've worked in a hotel before I totally understand the 80 euro deposit on arrival for damages. Cheers to the Dj for announcing to everyone that fresh meat had arrived as we dragged our suitcases past the pool on arrival!! Thank you for a fantastic holiday

I stayed at these apartments from the 14th sept until the 18th of September for my hen party. We had the best time. The apartments are a good size and fairly modern. The apartments generally where clean apart from our floor.

Security in this hotel in quite strict and you are not allowed in without ur wristband, which you have to wear the entire time u are there. This place will not take any nonsense with noise after 12am due to close by residence.

Apartments are situated at the top of a killer hill, but u get used to it! 3 min walk to bars and beach... What more do u want. There is a supermarket at hotel which is very handy!

Absolutely loved the pool dj was awesome and staff are very friendly.

I will definitely be returning! Great value for money.

Thanks sotavento!!

ENRIQUE MARTINEZ chief reception is the best, always smiling, a true masterpiece!
The hotel is always full mega, the rooms are very small problem with noise (bring earplugs and it's good!)
Magluf is a wonderful place for people who love to party!
Party two weeks with five friends, everyone asks!
The Good Times (15 June to 15 September) after that, magaluf this is completely empty it is no longer attractive

the beach 10/10
The hotel (sotavento) 9/10
Room 9/10
Pool 7/10
the hotel food: I have not tried
food in magaluf general consulting to eat in large restaurant if not disease (tourista)
BCM (largest club in Europe with the biggest DJ in the world, steve aoki, calvin harris, steve angelo ...!) 20/10 + - € 50 with drink at will and gifts, very reasonable price especially when you see the mega club that is
I / bars August 10
nearby 7/10

the final: 10/10 and next year it returns!

Room Tip: for 6 people, 2 people sleep in the living room on the chair bed, not too bad

Hi,

Thank you for the review of your stay at Sotavento. We are pleased that you had a good stay with us and enjoyed all that Magaluf has to offer.

For clarity Magaluf and Sotavento operates all summer long from April thru to October, it is true that from middle of June to middle of September Sotavento and Magaluf is full of young peope typically 18-25. However in April, May, early June and September the hotel is also full, but this time with people of mixed ages - generally anything from 20-50 years, Sotavento has been full most days since we opened in March this year and it is great to see a mixed age group enjoying all our facilities and the resort of Magaluf throughout the summer.

Thanks again for leaving a review of your stay and we hope to see you at Sotavento in the future.

Regards,

Peter.

4 lads stayed 11th-15th September. Been to Maga four times before and this is easily the best place I've stayed. Very clean and excellent value for money. Soon as we got there our rep sorted us out with a free round and showed us to our room. 111!

Rooms were decent size, a lot better than what you typically get in magaluf and the bunk beds were surprisingly comfy and spacious. Air con was a god send and living room and balcony area was a decent size for pre-drinks.

Pool was always clean and the staff by the bar and restaurant were sound, a good laugh and very friendly. Food was decent and pretty cheap and pints were only 2.50 euros, can't complain! Dj on every day and tunes were decent, different stuff every day and even played us a few indie anthems on request one day top bloke.

Reception staff were always helpful. Our toilet stopped flushing one day and they had it up and working in half an hour at no charge, top service!

Although don't break owt, there's a big list of what you will get charged from 2 euros for breaking a glass to 600 euros to breaking a bed! Fair enough though I suppose.

For those that moan about the hill, it's not that bad and you won't notice it when you're half cut. If you're struggling just do what we did, stop at the decent little takeaway half way up and treat yourself!

All in all, top stay would recommend it to anyone staying in Magaluf

Have just got back from 4 days at this hotel and had an awesome time!!
There were 7 of us lads aged 40 but going on 21 lol and we regularly come to Maga and this was first time staying here and this hotel was buzzing and had varying ages so was ideal.
You had to sign for a million things that if broken you pay which i never have had to do any other place when you arrived, but then again you shouldnt be breaking anything so no drama there.
Also there are cameras everywhere yes and if found talking in the corridors at 4am you will be asked to be quiet or to get in your room which is fair play to be honest!!
The rooms were clean and smart, the pool was great and the music awesome....just wish i was still there listening to Ben Pearce "What i might do" being blasted out round the pool :)
The staff were always friendly and helpful (very attractive girl on reception lads lol) and food great.
It is on the top of a hill but you should be returning home wasted so will never notice the hill anyway ;) lol
So from Blurt,Tomo,Ralph,Po,Toffo,Scott and Gary we thank the Sotavento Apartments and all who were there for a great time and i hope to be back there soon :)
P.S. if you can let me win 1 of those free weeks stay you were offering with that competition then that would be great ;) lol
Cheers Blurt

Room Tip: If you can ask for a pool room view as much better than a view on the back car park!! Also remember...

Just got back from staying at the sotavento apps and I had the best holiday ever. This was my 5th time staying in Magaluf and was the best year so far. I couldn't fault the staff, they were very helpful and friendly. The dj was very entertaining. The bar and restaurant was very fairly priced. The cleaning staff and the handy men were very nice and did everything to make your stay good. Even though the hill was a killer still a good place to stay. Definitely will be coming back next year and would def recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Magaluf :)
