I love Magaluf!
"I am coming here twice a year in May and October. For what you pay this hotel is a good value. The rooms are spacious, clean, well equiped and in a good location for shops and bars, the beach is just 200m away.
I will come back next year!
We love Magaluf!

great value for money
"we booked the sol y vera through freedom direct and although at first we were very wary we had all are fears dispelled as we had a great time.we have been going to magaluf for the past 13 years and have stayed at numerous hotels and the sol y vera was up there with the best.The staff were very welcomming and isadro was great.the room was very spacoius and the views stunning although we were on the 6th floor.
The linen was changed on a regular basis and the cleaners were very friendly.
As usual magaluf did not dissapoint apart from the tornado on 4th oct.I would advise anybody that if the go to the house of katmandu (the upside down house) take lots of euros its not cheap.
If you are into chinese food go to gran mundo in palma nova for 9.5 euros you can have a all you can eat buffet and the food is great.Children are 6 euros.
For more home cooked food you have to go to Tom browns there are 3 in magaluf the one in town have very friendly staff especially craig/paul and sarah and jaunita we will miss them but will see them in june 2008.Go to tom browns sports bar and you will be met by ollie and the team again very friendly.
For a very good night of laughs you have to go to the green parrot to see the boro gobshite (dj) and bash the man (dj) adult entertainment lots of swearing and adult songs mixed in with the norm.For a tribute band go to manos and watch Queen they are great also Elvis is good. cant wait to go back june 2008."

Really good value!
"We had a nice week staying at the Sol y Vera!!
The apartments were nice and clean. Really good location for shops, beach, supermarket, bars, gym... and just a 3 min walk to the BCM (fantastic nightclub!!!!!)
For what you pay this hotel is really good value.
I would definately recommend it! ;-)"

"Myself and 8 mates have just returned from a funny weekend in the Sol y Vera. We went there to celebrate my stag party.
The rooms are quite basic but really good. The pool area was clean so we spent most of our time in there having a laugh!
also the beach is only 5 min walk. The staff are very friendly.
Would recommend it for parties and we will definately be booking to go again next year as the nightlife is really good!"

an absolute hole
"this was the worse place i have ever seen in my life, the rooms were smelly, the bedroom window wouldn't lock and other people before us had carved their names in every piece of wood you could see, the chairs were all slashed and the manger said there was nothing wrong with it!oh and it looked like the throws on the beds had not washed the whole summer. it must have been known as bad though as the company we booked with put payment back on my card the same day, with no problems or questions asked."

"Hotel was average... the cleaners didnt really do much, dont think we got a change of sheets in the whole 12 days we stayed there!! i think all they did actually do was give us clean towels every other day! The pool is tiny but is ok 4 a chill out when ur rough!... we got robbed too, in fact the whole of the 8th floor, some of the 9th and 7th floor got pretty much all valuables stolen... if you are going to stay here i would advise not getting a safe! It was quite obviously an inside job! the staff there didnt want to know and the only people who didnt get robbed were the 1s who had their spare key....
Kept me sane... The staff in Susies bar below the appartments, definately drop in there 4 a full english :o)"

Avoid this hotel at all costs
"**** AVOID AT ALL COSTS ****
Myself and 9 mates have just returned from a stag weekend in the Sol Y Vera. The hotel was ok for what we paid although the pool was always in the shade, tiny oh yeah and the staff are thieves.
On the last night the safe was opened (opened, not broken into) our tickets, money, wallets and mobiles were stolen and the safe locked when they had finished! The front door wasnt kicked in so we can only assume it was a inside job.
Hotel staff didnt care that this had happened and 4 other rooms had exactly the same thing happen to them.
To top it all off the receptionist said we have lost the deposit on the safe as they will have to change the locks!!
It ruined our holiday, dont do it."

Very, very good
"Booked cheaply, didn't expect too much, room was large, clean, needed more pillows, good location, pool shaded at times. All in all very pleased."

Good value for money!
"Sol Y Vera is ideally located for access to the beach, shops and night life. It also benefits from being in a quiet location to get a good night sleep after the party.
The hotel has enough facilities. Rooms are equipped well and I was very lucky to have a nice sea view. Free WiFi. Staff very nice and helpfull when you needed.
Excellent value for money. "

Good value for money!!
"A group of friends and myself stayed at the Solyvera appartments 2 weeks ago and i must say what a brilliant location and appartments!!! Just around the corner from BCM's and only a 10 minute drive into Palma, with just a 2 minute walk to the beach.
The appartments were central and staff were always on hand for help about the area. The appartments them selves were clean and adequate and all in good working order.
I will be revisiting Solyvera next year and hope my stay was as good as the first time. Great value for money!!! "

"Booked in 2 June 2011. The Apartments ok staff very helpfull. But it was full of drunken Foul mouth louts aged from 16 to 50 we could not use the small pool or sun terrace because of them. Will never go again.
But if this is your thing it's the place for you. "
