Thompson reps were extremely helpful as were all hotel staff, hotel room was basic but clean and tidy. As an example of hotel customer service, family staying in adjacent room reported slight crack in sink on arrival, then went out. Upon arriving back half hour later, new sink had been fitted, four star sevice from a three star hotel. Though we were worried about possible noise from hen party's returning in the early hours, there was none, extremely happy with hotel will certainly return. Bars and cafe's in magalluf are very cheap and well run, service is so fast and friendly, puts the ones in England to shame. The strip is an experience not to be missed though the constant badgering of touts does get annoying, but in all fairness they are polite when told your not interested. The looky looky men as we call them are even more annoying, trying to sell sunglasses and so called gold chains, with the exception of one who wears a tiara and flashing star shaped glasses who cant fail to make you laugh.

The Fiesta Sahara is a great basic place to stay if you want a clean and central base. The pool area is really nice and there are other extras (internet available, bar, tv room etc). The only complaint I would have after staying there a couple of times is the muppets who think that 'lively' means screaming and shouting at all times of night and throwing up in the lift. They think they own Magaluf and we shouldnt be there (us older ones!) but I love the place and like a good night as well as the rest. We tried the Martinique last break and got the real 'young and lively' the younger guests seemed to have a bit more up top and enjoyed themselves without having to p**s in the lifts and sing football songs at 7am! I think the security is a bit better and the staff less tollerant of the kids who are on there first holiday without mummy and daddy. If you want to be near the beach and the bars and dont mind A BIT of partying then go to the Martininque for your hols. If you like to get drunk enough to fancy the spotty kid from across the corridor and your only aim is to make as much noise as possible without actually shouting anything any-one understands then the Fiesta Sahara is for you!!!!

I have been to magaluf many times before both in and out of the main season. I would recommend this accomodation for families outside of main season, and couples as well, as in main season it gets very noisy with the club freestyle groups. The apartments are basic but they have everything you need and are very clean. It is well located and the staff are friendly here. The only thing wrong is that the rooms may be a bit small for groups of 4 as there is a sofa-bed for the extra two people in the living area, but there was plenty of room for 2 of us.
There is also a lot of information and discounted trips available at the reception. I would recommend to groups, families and couples, and the pool is lovely. (melton mowbray)

After reading adverse reports on this hotel, we wondered whether we had booked the right hotel. However, we need not have worried. The hotel, staff, cleaning, Thomson reps were excellent. We opted for the breakfast every day which was excellent as well. Location was central, near to bus stops, the local car boot sale, supermarkets and restaurants. All in all a fabulous holiday and we would definitely go back to this particular hotel. However, I don't think I would like Magaluf in the height of the season!!! We always go out of season so no problems. (Truro)

Paid for 3t accomidation, ended up in a self catering complex, with no maid service on a daily basis. Sheets and towels changed only once a week, sheets still had blood stains and foreign bodies on them after cleaning. I had to clean the room myself and make beds. No entertainment for adults only the 24hr noise from 18-30 year's olds. Drunk, fighting, abusive, Bad languague, Rioeting on all floors, police had to be call most nights, Reps left complex in the evening. Reps not Mature enough to deal with all the trouble Would not recommend this Hotel complex to any body. (stafford)

Visited for a quick break in December. Resort was like a ghost town. The only few bars and restaurants that were open were of a very basic nature, food choices were very poor with pizza and chips heading the bill..no shred of local culture to be found. Reminded us of Rhyl on a very dreary Sunday... Nearby Palma Nova was marginally more interesting. Nice beaches if the weather would have been sunny!!

Mallorca itself is a beutiful island and fair play to Thomsons we had some nice experiences on our trips out. We had a local guide who was extremely knowledgable. I think we were unlucky with the weather as it was very cold and could have done with more warm kit with us.

The hotel was a complete dissapointment. We were prepared for basic but this was rough. The rooms were smelly and chilly and the beds uncomfy. The only bar open was poorly stocked and only served drinks in tiny plastic glasses, silly entertainment and a dingy TV lounge added to the washed out effect. Got the impression it had been hammered over the Summer by 18-30 groups(which to be fair is it's intended market). Thought it may be different out of season, we were worng... If you have a requirement for any degree of comfort or local ambience give this a miss... (Colwyn Bay)

Our holiday at the Fiesta Sahara was excellent, The rooms were large and spacious and always kept clean by the friendly maids, We did have a small problem when the toaster stopped working but 5 minutes after we advised reception they replaced it with a brand new one. The bathroom was large and the beds where comfortable but i wouldnt like to sleep on the Sofa Beds. The Fiesta Sahara is in a great location near to the bars, clubs, waterparks and only a 2 minute walk to the beach. The apartments are close to the nightlife as i said but you cannot hear the pumpin music so you will not lose any sleep. The fiesta has its on Mini-market and cafe and internet access which is handy. The swimming pool is huge and there are plenty of sunbeds to go around. Try to get a pool view room as the apartments are overlooked on one side by residental flats. Overall the service provided by The fiesta Sahara staff and the Thomson was excellent. I Would recommed this accomdation to anybody. The resort of Magaluf is superb and i have already booked to go back in May 2007. Hope you enjoy your holiday just as much as we did....... (St. Helens)

Our holiday was out of season but was very enjoyable. The reps were extreamly friendly and helpfull. The hotel was very clean and when the nightlife outside wasnt up to much the hotel catered for us. The adult reps were very helpfull in showing us where to go to outside the hotel. The bars and clubs are reasonably priced and I would recomend this hotel to anyone. In Season i could imagine it would be quite a party place. Perhaps the hotel opposite would be more suitable for familys.
Will def be going again. Niki xx

"The location of the hotel was good as a there was waterparks, go-karts, clean beach,..."

The location of the hotel was good as a there was waterparks, go-karts, clean beach, Fantasia (3 courses of crazy golf) and a variety of bars that were family friendly. We did not have the time to do the various boat trips.

It was a short bus ride to Marineland with an enjoyable Dolphin and Parrot show we missed the Sea Lion show. The aqauriums and aviary were good too. Cheap tickets could be obtained through a visit to McDonalds. It took 40 mins by bus to Palma which needs more than a day to take even a small part of the city in.

Down sides
a. The beds in the hotel were not made for sleeping in.
b. The Half Board purchase through Lunn Poly was 30% more than the hotel would charge. However, the food stiil suited us.
c. People in orange bibs would not accept that you were out for a walk in Magaluf. They were sure we were out to get drunk with our children in tow.
d. Watch out for people bearing cards saying you have won a major prize. They prey on families and say they are based in Santa Ponsa. They will offer loads to get you to the presentation lasting 80mins. I got champange, vodka, drink, food and ice creams for the kids. (It took 6 hours) DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT IT IS MORE CORRUPT AND DANGEROUS THAN TIMESHARE. THEY COULD SELL SNOW TO ESKIMOS!!

We did not let the above spoil our holiday, but it probably put us of visiting Mgaluf and Palma Nova again. (Barrow-in-Furness)

Stayed here last June for a week and absolutely loved it!!!
The hotel was brilliant but only really for young people or older people who like a good time!
The pool was huge and always clean, there was always something going on day and night and the pool bars served great food and drink.
The rooms were cleaned every day and towels and sheets changed every other.
It is a totally mad hotel full of young people partying and enjoying themselves and you cant help but make friends with everyone you speak to. Everyone was so friendly and we all had a great time.
Would love to go there again any day. On top of that Magaluf was fantastic, with great bars and clubs. Recommend BCM! (Oswestry )

Fiesta Sahara is a top hotel. If you want to have fun this is the place to go! There is a lot of bad reviews on this hotel but if you read the brochure properly then it tells you what it is like, so you have nobody to blame but yourselves!!! Non stop partying 24 hours a day, if you want a quite holiday dont come here!!! The apartments were basic but very clean which is great if your just looking for somewhere to sleep! Its a lot more stricter than a few years ago but all the same an excellent hotel. (glasgow)
