We got parked outside the hotel no problem everyday, and it was easy to get to. The location was great cos the beach was literally a 5 minute walk down the stairs opposite the hotel, and the main strip of magalluf was also handy. Despite it's central location it was very quiet.
The lobby was nice, lots of marble, nice and cool. The room was a reasonable size, hae everything we needed EXCEPT a kettle - take a travel kettle!!! The beds were comfy and the air con was GREAT! There was also a free tv but the only english channels were CNN (which only worked half the time for some reason) and Eurosport, but you don't go to spain to watch the tv, do you? We were on the ground floor which appears to have converted the bathroom for disabled users. There is a walk in shower instead of a bath. This was fine for us, but the shower curtain was not long enough and every day the bathroom floor got soaked, so be careful! There was also a laundrette which was free.
We had a garden view, so did not get much sun on our balcony, but the litter of kittens there entertained us no end. Unfortunately, we were robbed on our second day. The thieves broke in by forcing the lock on the patio door and stole a few things. Three apartments were robbed that night. The reception staff said that this was the first time they had had a robbery and were very helpful to us - our rep from medhotels also helped out. We did not let it ruin our week! If this happens to you the spanish for robbery is el robo!
The grounds were really nice, there was a kids club, shooting, mini golf, pool, table tennis. The swimming pool is not as large as it looks online, but was still good. Also, the indoor pool and jacuzzi is only open during the winter - they don't state this on the website. There was a major shortage of sunloungers cos people kept "reserving" them with towels even though they were not allowed. We drunkenly threw some into the pool at 4AM - serves them right! Don't think you will get a sun lounger unless you get up about 6AM. If you wait until 3 or 4pm there are usually plenty by then and it is still nice and hot.
The entertainment was awful, we could not stand it. The worst was when one of the crew dressed as Stevie Wonder and was then pushed off stage by another staff member - as in ha ha , he's blind. NOT FUNNY. Also the viva dance, with accompanying song. Makes you want to rip off your ears.
We tried some of the bar snacks which were good except the hot dogs, which made us bowk. They were microwaved! We tried looking for places in the resort, but food in magalluf ain't great. We went to Sopranos which is just downhill from the hotel and then ate there every night - it was fantastic and really good value. GO TO SOPRANOS!!!
There were only scandinavian people there until the day before we left when lots of irish and welsh people turned up. We did not mind this but if you are looking to make friends, maybe you should go somewhere else, unless you are fluent in swedish.
We would probably go back here, cos the benefits far outweighed the bad points and we had a great time. Next time we would ask for a first floor apartment tho!

The staff here are really friendly and helpful.
The 2 weeks we stayed we were almost the only English people here, everyone else seemed to be from Sweden, Iceland, Finland and the like but all spoke excellent English and were very friendly.
There is a full entertainment programme in the day with many sports and competitions if you want to take part. We didn

Also the beach is only like a 5/10 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel has two rather large swimming pools, gym, tennis court, target shooting place, supermarket, room were they show movies at night, bars, resteraunt and many more.
Unfortunatly when we stayed we got robbed along with our two neighbours but it was only because we were on the ground floor so if you are going to book a room then my advice is to get a room that is not on the ground floor and make sure that you have holiday insurance!
Even though we had no mobile phones and no music because of the robbery it didnt put us off one bit and the staff were helpful with the issue!
The only thing that put us off on our holiday was that one night the entertainers were trying to be funny by playing a sick joke based on Stevie Wonder being blind! The entertainment crew dressed up as him and his helper that was supposed to be Stevie's carer pushed him off the stage thinking it was funny because he couldn't see! Then to make it even worse the impersonater kept on deliberatly falling into the crowed! We didn't think that it was very funny and we weren't impressed but don't let that put you off!
There aren't very many people from Britain most are from Scandanavia. And if you stay at the hotel then you simply MUST check out the small resteraunt wich is directly across from the hotel it is called SOPRANOS almost every night we whent there for dinner!!
I would recomend this hotel to anyone!!

The entertainment didn't go on for long.
I went in May with my parents, it was quite warm but the evenings got cold.
The indoor lounge in the hotel never opened, it only opened in the high season we were informed which we thought was ridiculous but we would return to this hotel again but it won't be my first choice.

When arriving outside the hotel it looked very nice and recently built or renovated.
When we arrived we were dealt with very speedily by the hotel reception staff who all spoke dual languages and were very helpful.
The apartment was fantastic with a balcony, lounge and TV area, kitchen area that was very well stocked and a separate bathroom and bedroom. Very clean and well thought out with enough space for four people.
As we travelled out of season there was not any entertainment at the hotel, but all amenities were open to include the gym, indoor and outdoor pools and sports areas.
We were self catering and never tried any of the food in the hotel as Palma Nova and Magaluf have some excellent eating places (Try Tom Brown's in Magaluf)
Location was super. Description said the hotel was on a steep incline, but steep in Spain is obviously not the same as steep in England. A two minute walk led you into Palma Nova and the many shops, bars and restaurants. A five minute walk either down the steps adjacent to the hotel or down and to the left at the bottom of the street led you to the beach. Furthermore a leisurely 10 minute walk through the shopping area led you to Magaluf. What more could you ask for?

The hotel is exceptionally clean,has a great and beautiful pool area with lots of sun beds. Furthermore there is an indoor pool.
Activities during daytime and entertainment arranged by the staff every night.
Never tried the restaurant, but the snack bar was very good. The hotel has a small but well equipped supermarket with long opening hours.
The staff was very kind and helpful, ex our toilet went out of order in the middle of a one-day strike, still it was repaired immediately!
The only negative comment I can think of is, that the view from some apartments at the ground floor is very limited by palms and plants.
I can highly recommend this hotel.
