Fiesta Sahara Magaluf Majorca Apart Hotel Review

Updated on January 6, 2011

The apart hotel, Fiesta Sahara is a family friendly hotel in Magaluf, Majorca which I stayed in with my husband in May 2010. I wanted to give a very relevant, honest opinion and review on the Fiesta Sahara and Magaluf so that holiday makers can benefit and gain from my experience.

The Fiesta Sahara is situated very central in the resort of Magaluf and is a great base for anyone, whether you like exploring or just partying. The sister hotel, Fiesta Tropico is directly opposite the hotel and during the high season or peak season will get noisy and rowdy as this hotel is a “Twentys” property, which means it’s a hotel which caters purely for youngsters (generally between the ages of 18 – 30), this is good to bear in mind if taking a family with smaller children in June, July and August.

Back to the Apart hotel Fiesta Sahara, it is a low rise building with only 5 floors and has 280 apartments. The reason it’s called an Apart hotel is because it has the facilities of a hotel but your accommodation is an apartment with all the facilities catering for a self catering holiday. The apartment comprises of a kitchen and lounge, together with a sofa bed, a separate bedroom and separate bathroom with a bath and shower and a spacious balcony. I found the apartment to be clean and tidy and had maid service and towel changing 3 times in the week that I stayed.

There were many facilities within the Fiesta Sahara and also had ample things for children including different games for them to play every evening, children’s section of the large pool and “kidzone” which is a children’s club to keep them entertained whilst you are free to top up your tans. The main facilities of the hotel include a large pool, bar with lounge, TV lounge, evening entertainment, pool table, volleyball and 5 a side football. One thing I did notice was that there was an on site shop which sold everything from sweets and crisps to bread, milk and alcohol. There were a number of arcade type of games dotted about which would keep the older children entertained.

Outside of the Fiesta Sahara was another shop which sold everything, toiletries, food and drink and at the end of the road was a good choice of restaurants and bars and even a Pizza Hut and MacDonald’s. The beach took us only 5 minutes to walk to and if you follow the beach round you end up in the resort of Palma Nova which is a lovely scenic walk that took about 15 to 20 minutes. The “strip” which is famous in Magaluf, is a stretch of bars, restaurants and nightclubs and can get very busy, I wouldn’t recommend this if you have children as I saw many hen and stag parties, pub crawls and large groups of people.

During my holiday to Magaluf I found that the food and drinks in bars and restaurants were completely reasonably priced, the locals were friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday. As I have a family myself, the one thing I’m glad I didn’t do and that was take my children with me even though the Fiesta Sahara is geared up for kids, I do feel I wouldn’t have been able to take them out in the evenings to a restaurant for something to eat. Overall a great holiday for groups of friends and young couples.
