This apartment was everything we were looking for, pool, proximity to the beach, quiet, family friendly, with air-conditioning, fridge/freezer, oven, hob, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. We didn't realise when we booked, but it also had wifi which was brilliant!!
This was the first time we had come to Spain at this time of year and we expected it to be hot, (which it was 30 degrees C+), so having a pool available daily from 10am-10pm was an absolute dream....how my kids didn't dissolve from being in the water so much was baffling.
Equally brilliant was the proximity to the beach where we spent many hours snorkelling or bobbing around on a lilo.
The apartment has a spacious balcony overlooking the pool, pleasant evenings sitting out to eat, with a glass of wine and even space for a bit of dancing afterwards.
We came by taxi from the airport which was about €43, we had considered hiring a car but didn't feel it was worth the stress or added costs of the inevitable "insurance excess fees".
Magaluf is walkable in about 30-40 mins depending on heat and energy levels. Equally in the opposite direction the small but trendy cove of Cala Falcó is walkable in about 20 mins (prepare for a steep section though). There is a local bus service to Magaluf, PalmaNova, Palma about every 2hours or so €1.50, or Magaluf by taxi is about €6.
Josefina (the owner) was brilliant, we arrived at about 11am (official check in is 4pm), we were able to leave our luggage in the apartment whilst it was being prepared and go to use the pool straight away which our kids were delighted at. *Tip- make sure you have already applied sunscreen or have some handy as I didn't and we were soon a bit too pink &seeking shade!
Even though check in wasn't till 4pm, Josefina pulled out all the stops and enabled an earlier check in for us. An additional surprise was the wonderful welcome pack of not only a bottle of wine, fruit and cake, but on the kids beds were 2water guns and 2 inflatable rings....put to immediate use!! This was a lovely touch.
The Shetland bar opposite the apartment block does a fabulous bbq menu, Tbone steak, mixed grill and chicken kebabs all went down well on the days I didnt cook.
I would be happy to return here.
