I have just got back home from staying at this fab hotel. I traveled with my Dad and my 3 year old daughter. Appartments- they were immaculate and cleaned every day. The receptionists always had a smile and were great with my little girl. They are staff constantly working to keep the hotel and grounds looking spotless. Food- there was everything you could imagine. My dad loves seafood so he had freshly cooked fish everyday, my little girl enjoyed the food. They was always a lovely joint of meat. Steak was on offer 2 nights in a week. Salads were great. Breakfast there was omelettes, however you want your eggs it was done for you. Animation team- they were absolutely amazing with my little girl!! They all remembered her name and she loved every minute of the holiday. The children's park and toys and equipment that they had to play with was extensive. The mini disco was the highlight of my little girls holiday. The evening entertainment was great. We especially like the magic show, acrobats and circus acts. The drinks were great! The bar staff were really friendly. There is a complimentary bus that can take you to maspalomas or into playa d'ingles which we used and was always on time. I cannot find a negative about this hotel. We will definitely be returning! Thank you to everyone at Barcelo Magaritas for a wonderful holiday!

Great hotel, modern facilities, good sized apartment with comfortable bed, everything worked perfectly and it was very clean. Staff were welcoming, helpful and always pleasant. Great animation team, very friendly, polite but unobtrusive. The food was fresh and tasty, very delicious desserts(!), all inclusive drinks choice was quite good. Highly recommend this hotel for any visitors!
