“Great value for the money!”
Reviewed 10 March 2007

We had some trouble finding these apartments as we arrived at the "wrong" end of the town in our car. Thankfully the town of Magalluf has some quite helpful maps placed at intervals along the street. On eventually finding the apartments, we had to search for the reception across the street (which incidentally was the subject of noisy major road-repairs throughout our stay - even so, the roadworks could not be heard as they were behind the building). Unfortunately, because this was off-season, most of Magalluf was under rejuvenation & the reception appeared to be boarded up & most definitely closed. We finally found a telephone number (being tired & unprepared as we were) & woke someone up to give us a key (this was around lunchtime). That was the last we saw of the staff that week!

As for the apartment: The room was clean & tidy & in a good state of repair. For the money paid (not much), this was good value. The pictures of room shown in the description are slightly misleading as I don't think all rooms have a double bed. We had a small but adequate apartment on the first floor - this had a bathroom, one living space with a kitchenette at the back and a balcony. We had to push two sofas together to make the bed, but all in all, it was very comfortable to sleep on! Linen & towels were provided initially, but I think maid service must be only once per week. The linen showed signs of mould stains but was perfectly clean - the blankets however, were fairly dirty. The towels were clean but musty. We did not have any fresh linen or towels during our stay of five days. However, as we stayed over a long weekend, I think we missed out! The bathroom contained a good sized bath, sink, toilet & bidet. There was plenty of hot water at all times. Two rolls of toilet paper were included & the whole room was clean. The kitchenette comprised a sink, work surface, two hotplates, fridge and louvred doors to close it off from the rest of the room. Plates, cups, glasses, cutlery & a bread knife were found in the kitchenette, although there was no kettle or toaster. We used the coffee maker to make our morning tea. The living space included a dining table & two chairs, a coffee table & two sofas/single beds. There was also a wardrobe containing a safe (I think you needed to rent a key from reception, although this was not made clear). Outside there was a nice balcony overlooking the beach, with a plastic table & chairs. The whole apartment was well heated (which was good during our winter stay), but there did not appear to be any air-conditioning.

Overall, this was good value for money - although we would have preferred a little more interaction with the apartment staff on arrival! The view from the apartment was fantastic & the location was excellent (if you like the sunbathing, or the bright lights of a busy resort). Our apartment was located over a bar/nightclub (and close to many others), so it could be quite noisy in the high season. We were pleased with our off-season stay as we saw a more relaxed side of Magalluf. Most amenities are close by so you can self-cater or eat out as you wish. This resort is definitely for people who enjoy going out & drinking in familiar surroundings (i.e. Magalluf seems to be the British capital of Mallorca) One caution: we were not able to park anywhere near the hotel! However, there was a good sized public (free) car park on the main street - although this might be more difficult to park in during the high season.

Reviewed 11 April 2006

I shared a 2-room appartement with two friends during our trip to Palma Nova, Majorca. We had our room on the third floor with a terrific view of the Son Matias beach. The view was fantastic! The balcony was large and spacey, and so was the apartement. We paid a very low price and therefore our expectations were quite low as well. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was quite nice. It got really hot at night, and there were disturbing noises which disrupted our sleep. The most annoying thing was the fire alarm that went off in the middle of the night, twice in one week. It was the most terrible sound and we were terrified. Fortunately it was just someone that had triggered the alarm for fun, but it took ages before someone came and turned the alarm off, so we could go back inside. Another downside was that we were given one key and we needed the key to get inside the building, which meant that we always had to leave at the same time because the three of us were depending on one single key. If two of us wanted to stay out late, we had to walk the last one home and get the key, and then go back.

There were no bugs or insects which is great.

The reception is across the street. The opening hours at the reception are unreliable, and as they offer car rental and trips as well, there were many people in line at certain hours. The staff is quite friendly and helpful, and they speak perfect English, but we overheard them saying some bad words in Spanish behind our backs. Not very nice..

The best thing about Balear Beach is the location. It is just 50 meters to the beach and it's close to the bars and clubs as well.

And by the way, the restaurant next to reception is quite nice. The prices are low, the staff is great and the food is excellent!
