“Mediocre at best. Good location everything else a disappointment”
Reviewed 16 May 2011

Location was great. Hotel is very drab. No entertainment at all. Staff never smile or talk.
Food was poor. Rooms clean enough. Would not go back, or recommend to a friend

After negative reviews on the site we were hopeful that when we arrived all would be okay. It was, absolutely great stay - the hotel is opposite the beach accessed through a security gate, in a peaceful position but right on the doorstep for the nightlife of both Palma Nova & Magaluf. The rooms are clean and spacious, as is all the hotel. The food is fantastic, plentiful, hot, varied - the plates are cleared away quickly. We went all-inclusive and the drinks were on tap in the dining room & behind the bar with tea, coffee & soft drinks always available. The staff that were described as rude and moody I think didnt speak much English but on the whole the staff couldnt do enough for you. The entertainment was very low key & there could have done with more sunbeds/parasols round the pool, but pointed this out to management & hopefully there will be more next year. Most of the guests are German/Dutch/Polish/French but that posed us with no problems whatsoever.
All in all - a wonderful place to stay and we will be back next year.

i stayed here with 2 friends for 2 nights on 5th august. Hotels 100% geared for German guests, which for us wasnt a problem as we luckily speak German. Reception staff very friendly and positive on initial arrival, unfortunately thats where the good service ended. Bar staff exceptionly rude. The night porter who looked apalled at us arriving after midnight shouted at us to "shut up babies!!!" was creepy and unnerving made us feel as though we were staying in a creche. Very uncomfortable and completely unneeded - we are aged 30,33 and 39 and all have our own children and are cabin crew so thats why we were so shocked at the level of care, we certainly know how to paint a positive picture at the most stressful of times and not prepared to let this just go without letting you all know.

Overall a nice hotel, the rooms are nice as long as you are in the main block, we initially got put in the block across the road and they are like a throwback from the 70's so asked to be moved.

We went all inclusive which was worth it, we were however the only english people in the hotel which was full of Geran's which was not an issue other than it was obviously mainly catering for Germans so the all inclusive drinks menu was only in german they do not have it in english or even spanish when i asked, all entertainment and kids activities were in german, all music played is german.

Nice pool area but not enough sun-loungers have to get up early to get one as the towels get put on quote quickly.

Breakfast was a nice selection, lunch and dinner varied on the selection, overall food was nice. Hotel clean.

It is right on the beach with bars and restaurants within very short walking distances. magalif is a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute cab drive away.

We were not leaving until 7pm and they let us keep our room on until then for only 23 Euro.

Has an indoor pool, outdoor pool, small gym, sauna.

The only reasion I would not recommend this hotel is that is is so centered for Germans, I do not expect top go on holiday and encounter only English people but we felt very excluded.

This is the first time I have written a review and I thought I should as I depend on others reviews when going on holiday.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Its location is fantastic, close to everything, shops beach etc; the staff were very friendly as were the German people we met. The food was not all to my taste, well I am such a faddy eater, it catered mostly for the Mediteranean palate - my mother in law thought it was great though and of course it is in the Med!!!
The room was large, clean and even had a hairdryer.
I have MS and my mum in law is also disabled(slightly) so its close proximity to everything was fantastic.
