If you’re after a hotel that allows for more than just swimming and sunbathing, this place is right on the mark. Its sports scene is top-of-the-range, with mini soccer, group road biking, tennis, and even Nordic walking all on the agenda. Things are just as lively in the evenings, with live music and themed parties topping the bill.
The hotel is geared towards taking it easy, too. Outside, four huge swimming pools weave their way around spacious terraces and palm-dotted lawns. The main one is in a great spot, just footsteps from a sweeping white-sand beach. Plus it comes with a bar, which serves a good range of drinks and snacks.
For sit-down meals, though, head to one of the restaurants. The main one offers up buffet spreads of international dishes, while the à la carte buffets specialise in Mediterranean, Canarian favourites and grilled food.
As for the bedrooms, they’re set in low-level whitewashed buildings which look out over palm-lined pathways and green lawns. Inside, they’ve taken a traditional approach. Think tan floor tiles, wicker furniture and patterned soft furnishings. Air-conditioning keeps things comfortable in high season, while satellite TVs and good-sized balconies or terraces complete the scene.

4 outdoor pools
It's all about the pools here, and it's no wonder. Not only can you grab yourself a prime spot for a sea view, but each pool has a pergola area with sunbeds, great for cooling off on those lazy days.
Magic Mungo Club
This is definitely the place to be. With parties, games, pool games, shows, tennis, soccer, picnics and a great playground, there's plenty to keep the little ones well entertained. For ages 3 to 6 years, available 6 days a week.
El Gusto restaurant
Choose from a great range of Spanish dishes for dinner. This place is only open on select days, so you'll need to reserve a table. Gentlemen are required to wear long bermuda shorts or long trousers for dinner.

Very good not quite excellent
Just returned from an enjoyable 7 days at Club Magic Life. Having been to Magic Life Egypt too we felt comfortable with the brand and the reviews elsewhere gave us the confidence to book. Agree with most of the positives mentioned elsewhere. 1) The food quality and variety were excellent 2) staff largely friendly and enthusiastic 3) no rush for sunbeds - plenty spare each day 4) plenty of adult space even though it is a family resort 5) entertainment staff not pushy about joining in 6) beach excellent (steep slope as mentioned elsewhere and no beach bar) 7) help yourself beer, soft drinks, ice cream. 8) excellent chips! The negatives for us were 1) the place is being refurbed at the moment which leaves you feeling very short changed when you get one of the older style (very tired) rooms. The place in general is in need of a tart up (cracked tiles, damp spots on walls etc.) 2) the food is excellent as stated elsewhere but meals are less of an occasion when you help yourselves to the alcohol and drinks mealtimes. At other AI places we actually quite like the table service for drinks we have enjoyed at other resorts rather than the very canteen feel to the main restaurant. Small thing and probably just us, the one night which didn't feel like this was when they put the table cloths down (rather than place mats) which felt altogether more special. 3) as stated we had one of the older rooms and the beds were extremely uncomfortable and my 17 year old daughter had to sleep on a pull-out sofa bed which was dreadful. 4) had to pay for wifi (one device only) for the week to have access around then pool which is certainly not all inclusive in my book! 5) entertainment was poor and guests paying to play bingo is no substitute for professionally brought in entertainment. Special mention for Ivan - top man. Finally, what is it about middle age men in Lycra ! I am sure cycling is great fun but no you don't look good. Germans and queue avoidance - Enough said. Would we go back? No - it is very good, but we have been to better.More
A wonderful, memorable week
My wife and I took a Thomson all-inclusive 7-day break here and it was one of the most delightful holidays I have enjoyed. It is a full service resort with separate accommodation blocks for up to 1,400 guests. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained. Our room was spacious with what was probably a 2-metre wide bed. We had a ground floor apartment as my wife is not too good on stairs. The en-suite bathroom and private balcony were fine. The food was so impressive both in range and quality: soups, hors d'oeuvre, fish, cooked meats and cold cuts, salads, fresh fruits, vegetables, pasta, cheeses, breads. Beer and wine was on tap. Although our deal permitted free use of three restaurants, we were quite content to use the buffet in the main dining hall for every meal. There was a bigger choice, you ate at your own speed and it was utterly unpretentious. I even got my hot porridge for breakfast. We are oldies so our needs are minimal but there is so much to do for all ages from toddlers (special creche play area) through to active adults with archery, tennis, beach volleyball, gym, spa, road cycling, mountain biking and assorted classes including languages, bridge, backgammon and others. There are several swimming and paddling pools and hundreds of sunloungers There is even a discreet naturist section with pool, sauna and sea views. (Although discretion is scarcely needed as the nearby beaches are mixed textile and nudist). The clean, sandy Blue Flag beaches are a joy to walk on and swim from. Tidal difference is only about 1 metre and as the slope is very gradual, the sandy area is huge at low tide. Three negatives: no free wi-fi; tedious 1h 20m bus ride across arid landscape from the airport; steep steps and slopes from the resort to the beach. These are minor moans - it is a fabulous place.More
Something For Everyone
The complex is a credit to all involved in it. My husband and I would thoroughly recommend this holiday. Spend the first couple of days exploring the complex as we only discovered the snack bar that opens at 2 pm and which offers open air dining and lovely pizza by accident. One small observation, when the restaurant is full th background music is unnecessary as it makes the restaurant very noisy.More

I went with 5 other people wich were my family It was really clean and spotless the food was amazing and very nice lots of different options and the pools were really nice and where ŵe had our sun beds you could see the sea and you had the pools the dance shows were really good good dancers I did acroarobics most says and Chelsea who was our teacher she was really good and the drinks were really nice I liked the snack bar but it would be so much more helpful if they could understand a bit of English as they couldn't understand me that's much of what I asked for. The coach trip to get there and back wasent very nice though and if you go down the bech and walk along abit were the rocks are there are loads of chipmunks and we feed them but the down side with the beach is that there are loads of steps and I stayed in a family room we were block 22 it was really nice though but the sofa beds were a little unconftible though but part from that I would deafntly recommend it and I would love to go agin but it can get quite windy and make sure you bring sun block as I still put loads on I still ended up a bit burnt but I really enjoyed my stayMore

Very friendly and spotlessly clean
A little bit out of the way but knew that when we booked. The beach looked fantastic but a long climb down the steps. It would not be fare to mention any one staff as they were all brilliant, courteous and very friendly. Hotel is magnificent with large pools and loads of sunbeds. Night entertainment in the bar was very good, don't no about the theatre as we never went but others said it was good. Would we go back? Might do. Would not put any one off whom wanted to go here only be prepared that there is nothing around you to do PS food plentiful but could have been hotter,lot hotterMore
