|Me and 11 friends stayed at the Fiesta Jungla for 2 weeks july 2007. First impressions of the hotel are staggering quite a large hotel made of several buildings with linked walkways with huge pool in the middle finding are rooms upon arrival was quite a task. For a room of four you are given 3 keys in the hope you will lose at leaste 1 of them and pay the charge of 30 ish euro nevertheless almost a key each is helpful. The hotel is kept reasonably clean at all used areas but i would refrain from looking over at the tops of roofes below from balcony as all manner of rubbish has been dumped from above veranders but this would be difficult to remove. The pool is awesome and largely shallow to chill out in as after few nights on the strip swimmin is out of the question also the pool is the biggest around so many people from nearby hotels come to share it major + for number of ladies poolside. No night swimming im afraid, security are very harsh. Groups may be different this year due to bookings etc but the hotel was populated by large numbers of wealsh. scousers, then the rest is by mancs (us) jordy's few odd scottish.|
The hotel rooms were better than expected and were regularly cleaned but early 9 o clock cleaners get quite anoying. Self catering is possible with fridge and utensils supplied although would recomend eating out. Safes are supplied but personally would not reccomend as 1 of our 12 had 200 euro stolen from his safe and as our group had been together as frieds for over 5 years the culprit as convieniantly suggested by the hotel staff as being one of us was out of the question. Also the checkes were cashed in the Jungla reception where the staff dont check passports when cashing travellers checks so anyone could use them. They where not happy when we put this too them. In general the holiday was let down by the staff's handeling of the safe being robbed and poolside attendant being a non english speaking no messing aggressive spaniard which was rumoured to be a thief after another holiday maker claimed the pool guy stole some money he had under a t-shirt at pool side 1 evening whilst he was in the pool. Away from all this whilst at the hotel i had nothing stolen from my room but my money was on cash cards....
Dont get me wrong the Jungla is one of the best hotels in Magaluf only let down by its staff. It is a stones throw from BCM which helps when crawling home as the club is almost soundproof you are not disturbed by it but a sleepless night is rarely achieved due to partyin room m8's opposing rooms etc but sleep is hardly an option when so much partying is around. Mid morning screams and cheers are not tolerated by again over hardened staff as security again speak very little english and shout a lot. Although- constant but low level noise isnt oppressed.
The hotel night entertainement isnt worth bothering with but no need to as many more exitable bars are just on the corner. The poolside dj arrives around 1 ish and music is played shortly after although around 5 genres of music are heard b4 this time, as every man and his dog sports an ipod and speakers at poolside.
Although staff were not in the slightest helpful they did not beat down on the usual no extra sleepers rule. In your room so bringing back ladys or men for the ladys is ok but dont broadcast this on way through reception. I would reccomend the hotel to anyone looking for a raucus clubbing hotel experience but after reading this dont expect common courtesy from staff or respect or anything of that nature also have money ready on arrival as all Magaluf hotels hit you with a deposit for room damage on arrival of 40 or so euro each which we only got 20 back for minor problems. I had a great time whilst at the Jungla was let down by small things but would return to the Jungla next time holiday in at Magaluf without question...

|Magaluf overlooks the bay of Palma and lies about 16 miles from the airport. Although a lot of work has been done to improve the centre and the resorts image, it still remains a favourite with the young, free and single due to the enormous amount of bars and discos at night. The biggest concentration of hotel and apartment blocks on the island, provide plenty of tourists for the many shops at the resort centre, while there is also a market at Calvia on a Monday. Water sports, go-karting, and a waterpark are all on offer for your daytime entertainment, with tennis and a golf course close by. The largest beach on the southern side of the island can still become crowded during the high season, and with the latest attraction, a glass sided submarine, there's never a dull moment here.|
|Like most of the popular European resorts, you'll find a huge amount of bars, pubs and restaurants here, serving every food combination you can think of. Plenty of fast food outlets give you the choice of burgers, pizzas and various fried chicken combinations with generous helpings of chips and salad if that's what you like. More traditional fare such as Sopa de Pescado (garlic stew with fish and tomatoes), Calderetas (lamb stew with almonds) and the fish specials Calamari (squid in batter deep fried) and Longostinos (giant prawns) are all worth a try. The local beers are as good as anything you'll drink back home and probably cheaper too. Wines and of course Sangria, are there to be enjoyed at every meal, and add to that the imported varieties and your drinking choice is endless.|
