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. You'll get 1 visit here per week included in your All Inclusive. This place is only open on select days, so you'll need to reserve a table 24-hours ahead. Gentlemen are required to wear long bermuda shorts or long trousers for dinner.

Another great holiday
My Husband and I spent two weeks at Club Magic from 26th March 2014, this was our third visit to the resort, and must admit it has got even better than on our previous visits. We requested room 11130 which we had used before, and our request was granted, the room hasnt been upgraded as yet (it was the next block to be done we were told) but everything was clean, and it suited us as it was near the pool bar and only a short walk to the other bars and restuarents. As usual everything was kept very clean and tidy by the hardworking cleaners and groundstaff. The hotel is the only fully all inclusive we have stayed in over the years, there are no hidden extras ie paying for the safe or fridge that some hotels add on to their costs when you arrive. and it is what it says on the tin 24 hours of food and drink, you could not starve at this complex! Lots to do each day, or like us do nothing and just chill. Many thanks to Ivan, the teen event manager, he always made time to have a chat to us two "oldies" whenever he bumped into us, him and the other members of the Animation team worked very hard for what seemed like 18 hours a day with only one day off! Very commendable!! also good luck to David when he comes to the bright lights of London in 2015! Also thanks to Bea and her boys in the Plaza bar, they were always smiling and remembered what we drank without even us asking them for a refill my Husband was spoilt with peanuts every night, even offered a kilo bag on our last night, the barmans joke! All in all another great holiday, look forward to our next visit.More

2 weeks of pure escapism. An excellent resort for all generatiions.
We had two fabulous weeks and were pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the resort. We were lucky to have a refurbished room overlooking the beach and watched the beautiful sunrise every morning. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and the room lovely and spaciously airy with a super balcony and furniture. The family rooms seem to be in a separate wing so there was little/no pressure from small babies ceiling, The food/choices was fabulous but it was certainly not a fine dining experience. The second week was very busy with families and we felt hemmed in by growing numbers of tables being pushed together with tables for two down the middle. It would have been nice to have an area for couples only. The outdoor areas were very well kempt and the resort beautifully landscaped. The staff were excellent and the catering manager greeted us with a glass of champagne on arrival whilst we checked in and then our bags were delivered to our rooms whilst we had dinner. An excellent way to start the holiday. We had fabulous walks on the beach daily, down the 90 or so steps and back again, resulting in us coming back fitter than we went! Essential excursion is the cruise on the Galleta Paradise which includes refreshments/lunch and to top it all we saw the Dolphins. Unfortunately my Husband did not enjoy the four hour flight back crammed in a seat very near the back of the plane and would not pay an extra £19 to change it. Therefore I doubt we would go back but we would certainly try other Club Magic Resorts. Thanks to all those involved for making it such a great holiday.More

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
Take any bad review with a pinch of salt - this place is super!
Just back from one week with my husband and 3 teenagers. We had booked 3 rooms, all were close to each other in Block 21. This was next to the sports facilities, but also very quick and easy access to pools, plaza bar, restaurants, theatre, fitness area and shop. Rooms were beautifully clean and up-to-date. Only one minor thing - we wished we had brought a travel kettle (or flask!) as it was a long walk up to the 24hr Wunder Bar for late night or early morning coffee! Food was great all week - wide selection and very high quality. List of ingredients provided next to each buffet station was much appreciated as one of our family has a severe allergy and was able to eat with confidence! Staff are generally excellent, from reception to cleaning staff, to restaurant waiters, waitresses, entertainment and sports instructors, all very professional and friendly. However, on 2 nights we felt a barman at Plaza Bar was very rushed and bad tempered, despite the bar not being that busy! He was happy to take orders for 2 drinks but on a number of occasions we tried to order 5 drinks together (one for each of us) and after asking for the first 2, the barman started serving someone else, putting his hand up rudely and saying "wait". We didn't get his name unfortunately, but he was only one "bad apple"! Whole place has a very relaxed, safe and friendly atmosphere. We went for a walk along the beach towards Jandia, took us about an hour to stroll along to the lighthouse and over to a market and shops. Taxi back (due to tide times) was only €9. Have just tried to book for next year and Thomson website says it's all booked up! Not surprised, thanks Club Magic Life Fuertebentura for a great holiday. Hope to be back soon!More

Kids club do not cater for kids with special needs
We chose this resort due to the for facilities for children stated in the Thompsons brochure. Day one went to register my son for kids club. Completed registration form with the details and advised that my son has Dyspraxia. Was told by Celina the Kids club rep that they cannot cater for sick children. My son is not sick he has a mild special need. I was told if my son wanted to attend their club he would need to have parent supervision at all times as they are just entertainers and not kindergarden teachers. However we did accompany my son to one of the activities and was appalled at the lack of responsibility the 2 Entertainers gave to the children,they let most of the children run off to were ever they wanted to, they even took them to the beach and gave no head count or proper supervision whilst there,the kids were in the sea on the own, climbing all over the sand dunes and running along the beach and generally doing what they wanted. when returning to the hotel there was no head count to check all the children were there. (2 entertainers for approx. 30 children). Reported to Thompsons rep who just advised its a hotel run kids club and its their rules. I have highlighted this point on trip advisor as families with special needs need to be aware of this. The hotel in general was ok . I would not class it as a 5 star more a 3 plus. we have frequently been to Bahia principe hotel Tenerife which has set out bench mark for 5 star. Food was ok, however you need to ignore the cockroaches running around the restaurants, the reception staff were very helpful. The brochure mentions a bus service to the beach, this is no longer available so only access to beach is via steep uneven steps with no secure hand rails. My Parents also came on holiday with us and were not able to go to the beach as could not manage the steps. The activity pool was heated but the music and p.a system was very noisy. The other pools are not heated. There is a very high chlorine in the pool which turned most of our swimming shorts yellow so have had to through away most of my sons swimming shorts. Googles are a must if the kids are in the pool as the first day my sons did not wear them and his eyes were extremely sore. Need to mention that the spa is for the naturist only.More
