I certainly would not recommend this hotel to anyone.It claims to be 4 star but certainly is not,more like an upper 2 star.first let me mentio the good points.The staff are all very pleasant and hard working and the rooms very clean.Now the downside.
1)The hotel does not provide tea making facilities as standard.If you want a kettle,you must pay 12 euros a week and a 5 euro deposit.Tea making facilities are a pre requisit in any 4 star establishment.If a kettle is required,iit should be provided at no charge,however a small deposit would be acceptable .and then returned when the kettle is returned.
2)The beds are rock hard as are the pillows.
3)the toilet is at an angle to the glass shower screen so you can easily hit your head on the screen.It is extremely difficult to reach the toilet roll behind and extremely difficult to clean oneself because the space is so limited.A very large person would have enormous difficulty(poor hotel design).
4)there is no extractor in the bathroom so smells linger for a long time.
5)The lifts are inadequate for a hotel of this size(12 storys).You might be waiting for more than 12 minutes.This is in early october.It must be horrendous in high season.The reception is not on the same level as the lifts and there are stairs to negotiate.
6)anyone with mobility problems should stear well clear of this hotel that can help in certain cases.however there are a couple of single stair lifts.Anyone with wheelchairs,forget it.
7)The hotel is situated at the top of a steep hill and is therefore not user friendlly for certain elderly people and families with young children and prams.
8)Overall the food is just barely acceptable.Breakfast is ok, but the main problem is with cold food.This was mentioned to the head waiter on duty in the buffet restaurant but nothing changed.From past reviews, this seems to be a problem that has existed for many years.The heating facilities to keep food warm are totally inadequate nand need to be updated.Have you not heard of bain maries as used in all the other hotels i have visited.
9)The pool area is very small considering the hotel size and the little food and drinks section is a total waste of time.There are often long queues for cold drinks etc with at times only one individual serving.Only 2 drinks per person are allowed at any one time.I hate to imagine what this place would be like in high season.
10)Unfortunately we experienced lager louts in a neighbouring room, swearing and shouting.These individuals are quite intimidating particularly when young children are present.
Overall this is not a pleasant place This is magaluf so what do you expect.
