We stayed at the Sol Magalluf Park the first week of October 2010.
I would imagine that this hotel carried the full range of opinions from good to bad, - I’ll explain why as we go through the points.
The hotel is centrally located in Magalluf, virtually overlooking BCM Square, but close enough to the beach that the higher floors offer sea views.
The pool area is adequate for the time of year that we visited, but probably on the small side for peak season.
Quite a nice bonus for this time of year though, is the provision of an indoor pool, that is located on the main external deck. Due to the sun’s rays through the glass, the water was warmer in this pool.
The hotel has 10 floors, and the view from the balcony on the pool side is this:
There’s a small garden and walkway leading to a tennis court at the side, there’s also a pool with goldfish in. A shadier area to sit and relax in.
The hotel offers half board, and I found that the food offered was of a reasonable quality, in keeping with most Spanish Sol hotels I have stayed in. There are only so many ways that a 3* hotel can present a cooked breakfast, but for the evening meal there was a good selection, including a roast joint every night, with proper vegetables and potatoes, not just chips!
The puddings offered were also good, a particular favourite is hot bread and butter pudding with custard.
The size of the restaurant was ok for off peak, but could lead to queues in peak season.
The bad points of the hotel are that it is clearly in need of a revamp. Some areas clearly haven’t been painted for a few years…
But on the whole the hotel was clean with efficient staff, and in my opinion represented a good value for money option for holidaymakers.
I dare say that a holidaymaker staying here in the peak season would offer a different opinion, as the hotels facilities are probably too small to cope at maximum capacity, and the location near to the main strip might well offer different noise levels throughout the night.
I would go again in off peak.
