Whilst this is not my first stay here, and will not be my last either, it is the first time I have left a review, not because the previous stays were not worthy. Excellent staff, all very attentive and ever so polite. The General Manager Tiago checked our group (golfers) in which was swift and hassle free. All of the staff are lovely and particular special mention must go to Kyana for her service around the pool and bar. Some reviews mention room size? They are ample in size, spotlessly clean, housekeeping was great. Pool is heated and the temperature of the pool is constant whether it’s 7am or 7pm. Congratulations to Tiago and his team and thank you for making out stay not just comfortable but very pleasurable. Would highly recommend Magnolia. Alex Cox

At first sight, I was a little concerned at the exterior of the hotel, but I needn’t of worried the hotel is immaculate and the staff are amazingly attentive and helpful. The hotel Manager Tiago checked us in and couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. The rooms, while small, are immaculately clean and functional. Breakfast is very efficient and well presented. The all day menu is also well presented and prepared, and we would have no qualms about eating in the hotel for evening meals. The pool is constantly warm and clean, the pool staff were amazing, especially Kayana the intern who couldn’t do enough to help everyone. On the whole a great experience and will Definately be back! Well done guys keep up the good work. Mark

We made a short notice booking for hotel and golf in the hope of getting a first golf vacation in after the lock down. Due to a change in flight plans we had to cut the trip short. The reservations department was super helpful in cancelling all the bookings! Thank you to Ana for your understanding, friendliness and the great assistance. Weniger anzeigen

Stayed here for 10 nights in September and can't wait to return. Rooms are gorgeous and spacious and the whole hotel looks great. Such a fab atmosphere. The pool is amazing, very relaxed with plenty sun chairs. Staff are so friendly. Every meal we ate here was delicious. The breakfasts where amazing, pool snacks during the day and meal in the restaurant at night. Hiring bikes was also so much fun (and free). Close walk to supermarket and bars and restaurants. 5 minute drive from beach. One of my favourite hotels. I cannot wait to return.
