"This is a lovely and clean hotel. Perfect unification, so close to the beach and near to pubs and a lot of activities all days. I recommend it 100%."

"5 girls, 3 boys all 18, went july 2010! good sized rooms and balcony. staff are nice although we did get told off a few times for being too noisy, and got made to go back to our room when we was in a friends!
it has steps at the back which leads straight out onto the strip, beware at night though as theres loads of prostitutes to the left of the gateway, my friend got beat up off a "pimp"
has a steep hill at the front but its alright!
overall, definitely a good place to stay and would definitely go back"

Great time had by all the group
"8 Girls of a 4 day hen weekend. Had an absolute ball! only time spent in the hotel was to sleep and have a few drinks before we went out. Not sure about the hill everyone is going on about, we managed it without any problems (may have been round the other side of the hotel) 5 mins walk to the beach and bars. Didn't eat in the hotel, but had an amazing holiday. Security man is strict on groups of girls but scared of big groups of lads. Would stay there again but this time will be ready for no sleep. Â£24 for 3 nights you cannot really complain! "

dont stay here
"we were a party of 38 on a hen weekend, the girl on reception when we checked in was the rudest person i have ever met, she allocated all the rooms(3 to a room, should have been 4)and then when she ran out she threw the key cards at the last people.she obviously got it in the neck from her boss because
the next morning a letter was put under our door demanding 140euros for the extra room or we had 2 hours to leave the hotel.
it was an ok base but the rudeness of the staff made it really uncomfortable every time you walked passed reception. i would never stay in this hotel again even if it was the last place on earth.
if you have any sense go and stay somewhere else.

Vista sol Apartments
"Vista Sol, good looking hotel, situated close to the strip and to the beach. very good facilities and well presented rooms.
staff are not so pleasant, food is rubbish. advice: DO NOT EAT FROM THE RESTAURANT especially not pizzas. completely unacceptable!
rooms get cleaned every 2 days, but if rooms are too dirty the cleaner will refuse to clean it?? makes no sense because is that not what she gets paid for? hmmm
pool facilities are good. but pool had loose tiles and drains and was dangerous. unsure if this hotel is aimed at families or 18-25 partyers? but they TRY to make u stop all noise before 12 but the one security guard is such a, how can i put this, weed? that no-one listens to him and they tend to just call the police.
overall the hotel is good but if u want carnage this is not the hotel for you.

Never stop here if you want to sleep
"A group of 16 girls stayed 4 days for a hen party (ages 19-50) - in the 4 days that we were there we had a total of 16 hours sleep - unfortunately not due to partying til all hours but because of the idiots staying there running up and down the corridors from 4-6am and kicking our doors in. Every night we had to call the security man and get him to call the police because although all 16 of us were in the corridor shouting we got verbal abuse back.
Hotel is in a great location next to the strip but it was rough as a bag of nails! "

"this has to be the best hotel in magaluf the atmosphere during the day around the pool is fantastic everyone is just talks to each other its very friendly atmopshere. the hotel had a mixture of english, scottish, swedish n norwegian there is never any trouble everyone just drinks with each other. the rooms are basic but you why would u want a fancy room wen ur in magaluf. the food is really good didnt get up for breakfast that much only twice the breakfast wasnt the best but it was ok there is a hill outside the hotel but u can walk down a path whch isnt that bad really n u come out next 2 chaplins. the hotel staff are brilliant but there are night guards who sometimes try to stop the parties that go on in random peoples rooms. overall this a great hotel i wud stop here everytime.

"Stayed here for a short sun and fun break 4th to 7th June 09.
Apartments were clean and quite big. Better than I expected and didn't show me up as I was the one who booked. Great big mirror for getting ready! Yes there is a hill but if you've come off the strip its not far, don't know what the fuss is about. Situated right in the middle of two beaches and just off the strip. Would definatley go again. The only things I could say that were not so perfect was the view out our window was of that of another hotel, but there was plenty to look at there! The bedroom light was not so perfect for putting your make up on, so you had to go in the bathroom, (No big deal). Magaluf has a full spectrum of people. Did plenty of people watching and chatted to some really nice strangers. Get down to flavours for your tea, the food is fantastic, especially with a jug of Pimms. Great price and location will be back soon, with my Mum and my sister, ages 33 34 & 56."

"Just got back from the vista sol apartments and had a fantastic holiday!
It is very clean, the rooms are are decent size, the shower is good, the pool is big and we didnt have a problem getting sat around it! The food from the bar around the pool wasn't too great, but there were pleanty on nice cafes and bars around us!
It is in a really good location, on the way out there is some steps that leads to the main strip, but on the way home you have to walk up a big hill, but thats fine! There wernt many brits in the hotel, we got talking to a few, but people were mainly foreign.
The hotel does not have such a party scene like others in magaluf I have stayed in, it was a lot quieter. Magaluf itsself has quietend down a lot, I couldnt believe the difference from last year, there are no PRs on the strip now, and it has got more expensive as there are no offers, but we still had a fantastic time and will probably return again next year. The resort as a whole seemed to have less brits in too, and there was a lot more nationalities.
I would return to the hotel! cheap, chearful and close to everything!"
