What to expect?
"After reading everyones comments i'm abit unsure as to whether the Fiesta Magamar is a good place to stay?! Me and my friends are staying there June 2006 -we're all turning 18 at the moment and will be our first holiday alone - without parents! We based our holiday on it being cheaply priced, with a hotel in a lively location and a basic room. Seems to me as if we've got all that, but some people are saying the Magamar is 'scruffy' and prison like? Could anyone give me any advice on what clubs and bars to go to and whether Pirates is decent enough for us girls to go to, thankss x"

brill base for end of season relax
"We stayed at the magamar from the 15th to 22nd october and we loved it! We had read some bad reviews about and although they were in high season we still had our worries. Although the hotel is built like a prison it looks big and spacious and welcoming it just makes everything 10 times louder no matter where you are in the building you can hear everything! We went for a relaxing week with a few bars to drink at in the evenings and no mad crowds of tanked up drunks which exactly what we got, it was great. We went as two couples and found just enough people to make it busy but not too many as it was end of season, there was only one club open which was bananas and was ok but murphys was great every night with 4 double vodka red bulls and a pitcher of vodka red bull for 20 euros! The hotel was just out enough not to be noisy, great location really as some of the hotels especially the sol chain hotels were in the middle of all the noise which would have annoyed us big time. About a 10-15 minute walk to mains strip once you find the way but bars and restaurants 2 mins walk which is where we started for dinner at night, we strongly recommend bar moon around the corner from the hotel if you turn left coming out, its right next to the fiesta sahara and tropico. Although you could use the facilities at these we never went in as there were too many kids! The pool at the magamar is really crap and we never went too close and went to the beach instead which is fantastic, 2.5euros for a lounger which are good but make sure he doesnt make you pay for the umbrella aswell as they are 2.5 euros too, unless you want one. We walked into palma nova twice which is bout 20 mins to half an hour but seems ages good shops on the way, make sure you go to golf fantasia in palma nova which has 54 holes mini golf but you can play 18, 36 or 54 but its great just follow the signs from magaluf, warning you cant walk along the beach as when you get to torrenova it becomes a rocky cliff and you cant get round though we tried! There is also an island about a mile out which youve gotta go to on a pedallo (9 euros) takes about half hour each way, good views but hurts legs!
Brill place to go, def stay at the magamar again as although noisy you learn to ignore it but def wouldnt go in high season it would be too mad! Want to go back asap!"

"If you are looking for a hotel with constant noise and no sleep for the length of your stay this is the place for you. The majority of the guests were on stag weeks and the only excursions offered were to nightclubs, strip shows and a booze cruise. The design of the hotel is such that noise echoes around the hotel to every floor from the reception up. The bar closes at 12am and the only place to get refreshments after that is from machines. Most of the guests appear to be nocturnal, and on one night were having a hall party until 7am. The decor is very minimal and uninviting, almost clinical and the staff were particularly unhelpful on the day we checked out. The apartment itself was very nice, clean and plenty of space. No cooker or microwave though and the toaster was possessed. The hotel is well located with only a 10 minute walk to the beach, where we spent most of our holiday. The pool area is very barren with no plants or landscaping and the pool is very small. Each apartment has it's own hot water tank which only contains enough for 2 showers. This meant that on check out day when we had to pass 14 hours with no room, we were offered a room to shower in for half an hour for 3 people. By the time we got to use the room there was no hot water, and we were offered no clean towels. The previous users of the room had left the bathroom in a disgusting state so we had to spend 10 mins cleaning the place up enough for us to use. We nicknamed the Magamar Magaluf Youth Detention Centre. To call it Alcatraz would have suited the hotels appearance very well. If you're into clubbing all night and only require a room to use as a base this is perfect. If you want a quiet, relaxing and comfortable hotel I advise you avoid the Fiesta Magamar like the plague."

HAD A GREAT TIME
"Had a great time at the magamar apartments, even though was slightly
worried with all the bad reviews!!
The complex is like a prison and a bit noisy, but we really werent bothered for the amount of time we spent in there!!!
The rooms are really basic, but didnt really need much more!!!
The only thing i would advise is to take a mirror as there was only one in the whole apartment!!! and the lighting is quite dark!!!
The reps were really friendly and helpful, and i would recommend going on the nights out with the reps as they are a good laugh and you get to avoid all the pr's on the strip it is a nightmare getting pass them especially if you are drunk. The catamaran and pirates was our favourite nights out!!!
The hotel is in a great location bout 5 mins walk from the strip and the beach, unless you are drunk then you tend to get lost because all the streets look the same!!!
I would advise going to BMC'S where you pay 20 euros and get all your drinks free and free gifts if you get in before 12!!!
they also do brilliant foam partys and water partys!!!
Boomerangs and carwash are also really good!!!
Theres load of places to eat included pizza hut, mcdonalds and burgerking, but if you dont want fast food then i would recommend tom browns, english food at cheap prices and you get a free drink!!! and just round the corner from the hotel!!!
The pool area is quite small and the pool is frezzing, so we spent most of the time on the beach!!!
overall i would go back to the magamar apartments again i went with 8 other people and they all had a great time"

"I went with 45 lads on a stag weekend , well were shall i start .? This hotel caters for every bit of excitment you can ask for . Loads of booze people coming home all hours , couples everywhere in the moon light , 24 hour party mood , if you went you wouldn't be disappointed as the staff are friendly they even joined in in our parties like throwing tables and chairs off of the balconies . Loads of naked people running around early hours of the morning and during the day . So what more can i say this hotel can entertain you for hours no matter what your age.!! We went in september 2004"

"A very poor hotel/apartment complex with constant noise echoing about and fighting in the corridor till late morning! The bar was ok, but the pool area looked tired. I would rather go to a real prison than go back to the magamar. Nice reps though!"

Dont listen to everyone elses bad reviews - its amazing :-)
"I and another 3 girls stayed there at the beginning of August! And when I read the reviews from here, we tried to change hotels because it sounded horrendous â this is not the caseâ¦. The hotel is clean and the staffs are polite.
We did not get robbed and I thought it was a nice place to stay ! I would definitely stay there again, just a shame there is no bar or snack bar by the pool ï MAGALUF IS DEFINITELY THE WAY FORWARD

Best two weeks of my life
"We stayed at the Fresh Apartments Magamar in July 2011 for two weeks and we had the best time ever. Me and my 3 friends arrived around 12 to find that there was a problem with our room and we had to be transferred to another hotel until the next day. It was devastating as we were so tired and just wanted to unpack in our rooms. However whenever we got settled into our rooms the next day we were suprised to see that the apartments were not as bad as the reviews i had seen on here. They were clean and tidy and the maids brought in cleans towels toilet roll etc every two days i think however the only thing they didn do was take out the rubbish or put on cleans sheets. There was plenty of room in the apartment for the four of us however the balcony could have been a bit bigger. I was overally impressed with these apartments although air con would be good as the ceiling fans are not much use and there is only one mirror which is unforunate. Magaluf is an amazing place to stay in and these apartments are not to far from the strip. Would definately go back to Magaluf infact me and my mates are going to go over for the month this time and work with playaway."
