We have just got back from our stay at this hotel (18/08/2015-1/09/2015). The hotel is lovely and the facilities are great. We really enjoyed our stay, the pools and pool area where cleaned daily and the slides and mini splash pool was maintained on a daily basis. We found the running of the slides to be great, there are 6 large slides altogether 2 that exit into a small pool which when they wasn't running was open to swim in. They switched between them every hour so the 4 camacarsie style slides would open and the tube slides would close and then they would all close at 2pm-3pm for dinner. The big pool was open from 9am - 8pm and the slides opened at 11am - 6pm. For us this was better as the kids got to have a lie in after the late nights, we'd go down for breakfast at around 9.30am and then get in the queue at 10.30am for the slide pools to open to get a decent sunbed. Some people thought the opening time was too late but for us it worked out better as our children liked a lie in after a late night (aged 8 and 4). The lifeguards where fab can't fault them at all, Paco operated the slides and he was brilliant he had fun with the kids whilst remaining professional at the same time, Vanessa was the main lifeguard and she was brilliant too she looked after everyone around the slide pools and any accidents she dealt with straight away in a professional manor and what I liked most was all slides seized operation until any situation had been dealt with. Another good thing about the hotel was if you had an accident around the pools or in the hotel whether it was your fault or not the hotel payed for your taxi fare to and from the hospital and your hospital treatment if you needed any. The food in the restaurant was very good even for fussy people (me being the fussy one) there was loads of choice. And the snack bar was great near the big pool as this was just a smaller version of food from the large restaurant. There was food, Icecream and cakes and biscuits, crisps and toffee on all day there wasn't a time you couldn't get any food or snack to eat which we found really good. They had candy floss on in the reception area till about 1pm which was good. The rooms where clean and tidy but not really the best for families if you've no balcony as the room is just one long oblong shape with 2 large double beds pushed together so for 2 weeks we slept at the side of our kids which isn't a massive issue but some people may not appreciate it. There was also a roof top terrace which opened at 5pm the view was lovely and it was very peaceful up there. It had alot of sun loungers and a Jacuzzi and a few 4 post beds to relax in. Now the only bad bits I have to say is the Spanish that are on their holiday there are very ignorant they won't think twice of pushing past you or walking in front of you in any queue and they certainly won't move out of your way if you are walking towards them if there isn't much room to manoover. Most staff are friendly but some are ignorant and treat the English differently to the Spanish they serve them much quicker than you which isn't a good feeling. The entertainment also isn't that good as it is also aimed more at the Spanish people so we spent most nights out at the white star which was a fab bar so I recommend it if any of you decide to have a venture out. We was on the 5th floor which wasn't a problem but the lifts however could be a problem at times as they took ages to come and only 4 could get in and one time. Other than that we had a fab 2 weeks and would return in the future.

Another great holiday at the magic rock, this was our 3rd visit 4th with the magic group. Family of 4 with 2 teenagers who loved the hotel. Pool area much improved following changes. Rooms cleaned daily and spotless. Staff always friendly. Its a safe environment and staff always willing to help. I can't comment on evening entertainment this year as we spent all evenings out in benidorm. Roof top terrace now open til midnight and NO kids allowed which was great for me and hubby (our girls 15 so ok in wifi area while we had time alone) FREE WIFI throughout the hotel which was a facebook bonus for our ternagers! :-) its a great hotel we will definitely return x

Got back from this hotel yesterday. The bus dropped us at the top of the hill! People have called this cardiac hill, myself or my child of 6 had no problems with this hill and walked up and down it several times to go to the beach. I would say if you have difficulties walking then this is not the hotel for you. The beach is about 5 min walk max. It was busy but there was always a spot to sit and the lifeguards were always around. Back to the hotel itself ... The food. I would say was average, I always found something to eat but it was mainly chips and salad. Or pasta and sauce. All the meats were chewy. Breakfast was the one meal I enjoyed. The entertainment. This was very poor!!!! The mini disco starting at 9.30 is too late. And the adult entertainment after this was a joke, one night there was a comedian on, well mainly she sang, it was diabolical. The maintenance & cleaning staff were excellent, I could not complain about the hotels cleanliness at all. And I am VERY fussy. The bedroom lay out. .. Well this is ridiculous. Two double beds pushed together. So my 16&6 yr old boy shared one and my partner and me in the next. It was like 4 in a bed. This hotel needs interconnecting rooms. I did not miss having a balcony. Due mainly to the fact that I would only worry about my 6 year old climbing. The air con was excellent and kept us cool day and night. There is a pull out washing line above the bath to dry off swimwear etc. The pool .. Well the pool itself and slides are really good. The downside is you are in the shade a lot. We cued at 9.15 every morning to get beds by the main pool so I could keep an eye on my child. But that meant we got the sun at 12 and it was gone behind a building by 4. In other areas you get the sun at 10 and it's gone by 1/2. So we tended then to go down the beach. I do think it's a good idea to not let anyone put towels on until 9.30. But the rule was if your towel was on for 30 mins and no one occupied the bed was never enforced!! I think it should be. As when we were there a group of jordies (friends or family I don't know) would go down at 9.30, hog 10 beds and then disappear until about 11/12. Their attitudes were disgusting, they were loud and aggressive. (None of this being the hotels fault but these are the people who should of had their towels removed). Drinks. I never found these a problem. I have Malibu. Baileys. Piña coladas all nice. And my partner had a few cocktails and larger. He was happy.
