Stunning sea views and a giant list of sports and activities are just a couple of the plus points of the TUI Magic Life Fuerteventura.
There’s a lot to be said about this all-action hotel, starting with the views. Thanks to its high-up position on a plateau above the beach, you can look out towards the horizon from most of the property.
As you’d expect from TUI Magic Life, this hotel’s facilities are aimed at keeping you on your toes. Think sports matches, fitness classes, and interactive entertainment. That said, the pools and the wellness centre provide a contrast.

5 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. There's one that's for adults only, too.
Magic Mungo Club
This is definitely the place to be. With parties, games, pool games, shows, 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.
3 speciality restaurants
Choose from a great range of dishes for dinner. You'll get 1 visit here per week included in your All Inclusive. These places are only open on select days, so you'll need to reserve a table 24-hours ahead. Gentlemen are required to wear full-length trousers for dinner.

Another Fantastic Holiday
Just returned from another fantastic holiday at this hotel. This is the second time we have stayed here in less than a year and have already booked to return in October. The hotel is in a fantastic location with steps directly to the beach. We book this hotel as I like to keep busy on holiday and my partner likes to sunbathe and chill by one of the many pools. The sporting activities are well organised and plentiful (no excuse for boredom). The food as always was great with something different every night even for the fussiest of eaters. Room was cleaned everyday, all the staff are friendly and always say "hola" with a smile. Just wanted to say thanks to "JJ" for the well organised volley ball (played twice a day for the whole 11 nights) A real asset to the team and a great laugh. Can't wait to be back.

Beautiful gardens and excellent food
The journey from the airport was 1 hour 30 minutes. Check in at the hotel was quick with a welcome cocktail on arrival. The hotel is very attractively laid out. We were in block 12, room 205 which had beautiful views both from the front door which overlooked the very well maintained gardens with the mountain in the background. The view from our room balcony was just as lovely, overlooking the pool and sea. The best room views I've every had. The room was clean, towels were washed and changed when they were left in the bath. The main restaurant food was excellent, a great variety and hot, different each day. In the evening when the restaurant became full and a queue formed, staff quickly got tables cleared and set and directed people to a vacant table. Waiting for a table was only for a minute or two. The hotel had an excellent daytime fitness programme of activities as well as poolside games for adults and children. Evening entertainment was mainly dancing shows in the theatre which was every other night or music in the plaza bar which was popular with everyone. If you prefer quiet then the wunderbar was open for alcoholic drinks, tea and coffee. Botled water can be obtained from various water stations in the hotel. The hotel is situated on top of a cliff with beach access via approx 76 steps, some of which are steep. When the tide is out you can walk along the beach to the town Morro Jable, this took approx 1 hour. The beach is sandy and quite rocky, amongst the rocks are chipmunks (near the hotel) which we enjoyed feeding. We went on the free bus shuttle to Oasis Park Zoo. It's only a small zoo but the big advantage is you can feed the animals i.e. giraffes, camels etc. There are also a couple of shows during the day, sea lion, birds of prey, fauna were lizards, snakes etc are brought round into the audience. You can also pay extra to swim with the sea lions, lemur experience and camel safari. I found the staff at Magic Life pleasant and helpful, and felt the British got treated exactly the same as the Germans. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.More
Fantastic Hotel can't wait to go again!!
We visited this wonderful hotel in March this year me and my husband had a fantastic time. Have already booked to go back and can't wait we where in block 21 lovely room. I have read the last few reviews and totally disagree with a lot of what was said. To start TUI is a German company and what else would you expect but Germans staying but it was very well populated with British,Irish,Swedish and lots of other Nationalitys. I never came across beds being reserved and the hotel was full when we stayed. Staff so polite and helpfull where ever we went and no difference with bars. Food at this hotel is to die for. I was spoilt for choice,the three restraints are a real treat to visit never rushed us or pushed or pinshed our wine. Pools fantastic,gym state of the art equipment and everything is free my husband went out on a bike ride that he enjoyed and was all included. I enjoyed the pool activities. I could carry on if you are thinking of going hear there is something for everybody and take the past few reports with a pinch of salt we loved it and can't wait to return.More
Hotel in decline, needs to be managed and looked after better
I visited in May 2017 as a part of a multi generational family holiday (having also visited previously as a teenager with my parents). The hotel is quite a long way from the airport (around 70-80 minute transfer), which is something to bear in mind if you don't like long transfers. On arrival, I was given a disabled room (block 10) despite being able bodied, though this didn't bother me. I did however find some things very curious about the room. The bathroom was actually a giant wet room, no bath. The majority of the wet room had the same tiles on the floor as the rest of the room, and as this was a wet room rather than bathroom, the floor got very wet when taking a shower and it became very slippery, which is dangerous. Two days before the end of the holiday, I slipped and badly bruised my leg because of this. Additionally, despite this being a room that is apparently fitted out for those with disabilities, the sink is far too high for a wheelchair user to be able to use, which seems baffling, and the shower head was low down, presumably for ease of use for those in wheelchairs. However, at 5ft3 I only just fitted under it, and I wonder how a 6 foot man accompanying a wife in a wheelchair on holiday would shower if given this room. Having stayed at this hotel previously (albeit in a different block and room type) and knowing that the rooms have been refurbished since, I couldn't work out how the bathroom had been so badly designed and planned for purpose. Another gripe - although petty - with the lack of thought that went into the refurbishment was the fact that there were no drawers in the room at all to store belongings. During my stay, I couldn't fault the cleaning staff I had. However, I know that my parents who were staying at the same time in a different block, had problems with their cleaner consistently leaving their balcony door open when finished, despite them being on the ground floor, which is obviously a security issue. The hotel is located right by the beach and has lovely views. The stairs can be a bit of a struggle to get back up if you're slightly unfit, which means that we did spend less time on the beach and swimming in the sea - which is crystal clear - than we would have liked. The hotel on the whole has declined since we last visited a few years ago. There's broken tiles at the bottom of the pool, as well as broken bricks and tiles throughout the grounds. The outside walls also appeared grubby and looked like they needed repainting. Additionally, it appears that that the hotel is cost cutting by declining the number of staff they have working, and this definitely impacted the experience we had as guests. When eating at the main restaurant, there was regularly plates left on tables rather than collected and if arriving after around 8pm for dinner, tables were not made up ready following the previous guests, leading to a game of "find a fork and knife". Despite this, the waiting staff seemed rushed off of their feet and the hotel clearly need to hire more. Because the wait staff were so busy, we didn't have the interaction with them that we've been able to experience at other hotels, which some may construe as rudeness. If you're not a fussy eater at all with no dietary requirements at all, food choice was generally good. Though it did definitely often seem to be of the meat, veg and potatoes variety. As a vegetarian, this meant I ate a lot of potatoes, cheese, bread and salad as there was rarely anything as part of a main meal available to me. Most of the time, food was well labelled with ingredients and allergens, and I noticed a gluten free area, including cakes and breads. Though I did wonder why if this is possible, it wasn't also possible to have a dairy free area (the closest to this was that soy milk was available at breakfast). The toasters are in dire need of replacement of relabelling, as the labels have come off, meaning that no one is able to understand how to get them to work, leading to either burned toast or slightly warmed bread. Some of the foods at breakfast just weren't cooked correctly. The beans were like hard pellets most of the time, which was very disappointing. My nephew one ate half a sausage that was pink in the middle before my sister noticed and complained - it turned out they were all like this. On the whole, food tasted worse than when we've stayed before. Desserts on the other hand, were generally very good, and even available for breakfast in the form of waffles, doughnuts and churros (if you're that way inclined). There's a lot of sports activities available at the hotel, but we didn't try these. As previous reviewers have mentioned, there are German people at the hotel (probably around 50%). However, from my experience, they are not catered to any more than those from the UK and suggestions of this are definitely exaggerated and seem quite prejudiced and scream an air of self importance in relation to being British to me. The town is around a 50 minute walk along the beach or 10 minute taxi (around â¬9). I wouldn't recommend getting the bus as the stop is around a mile from the hotel (or at least feels it) and you'd need to walk along a road that smells of sewage with no pavement in parts. Wouldn't return again, but as long as there's something done about the appearance of the hotel and the number of staff, I would recommend to those looking for a relaxing/ sports activity based holiday.

Good for the money
Before I start my review - if I could give this hotel 3.5 stars I would, but I don't have the option. Also, some of the 2 star reviews below are absolutely ridiculous and hugely exaggerated in my opinion. We stayed for one week in May as a couple. We paid Â£520 each for a sea view room. For our experience I think this was great value for money. We arrived at 9pm after a 70-80 minute transfer. Thomson reps couldn't organise the coaches properly and were absolutely useless to say the least. Given the amount of people that got off our coach to check in, the hotel handled it well and we got checked in and into our room fairly quickly. They also opened the Italian buffet for us at 10:30 which was nice. Our room was spacious and clean. The beds were 2 singles but both decent size and very comfy for the duration of our stay. The sea view was amazing and well worth paying the small amount extra for. We were in block 14 and on the first floor. No issues with the room or our view. The only thing we were disappointed with is that we only had bottles of water in our 'mini bar' fridge, then on our last day we heard that other people got branded cans of soft drinks, beers etc in theirs. I'm not sure how we would of gone about getting this as we were never told, and there was no card in the room saying we could have the fridge stocked. Maids came every day. Water pressure in shower was fairly good. Onto the food. For what we paid, you can't fault it. There is so much choice for everyone. If you aren't a fussy eater you could easily have something completely different every night if you were staying for a week. The review below that makes it sound like it's chaos and everybody is fighting for the food is absolutely ridiculous ð. Yes it can get busy depending on the time you go. If you want something from a show cooking station you may have to join a queue of 4 or 5 people but who cares? There is an adults only area of the main restaurant which is worth sitting in if you're a couple. Much quieter and cooler. We never ate in the speciality restaurants so I can't comment on them. The bars. Staff are extremely hard working in the bars. We only ever really sat in the plaza bar, which would show premier league and champions league matches in the evening. The cocktails aren't great to be honest, but everything else is fine. As the staff work so quickly and have so many orders to take they can sometimes rush with the cocktails and a lot of the time they were pre-made, so I would recommend just sticking to a spirit and mixer. I do feel the cocktails could be improved as they are not up to the standard of a regular 4 star hotel. The local beer was nice. The pools were fine. Reviews that say they are 'freezing' are also exaggerated. I'm pretty sure all pools feel freezing when you dip your toes in. Once you actually get in and have a swim the pools are absolutely fine once you're in!!! I happily and easily got in them and had a cool down from the baking hot sun. There were plenty of people in the pool whilst we were there and kids enjoying themselves. Some families reserved sun beds for the best pool side spots, but there is no need to reserve sun beds here - there are plenty for everyone and you can get yourself a few together at any time of the day. We would often go back and forth to the beach and pool and had no issues. The beach. I do believe the steps down to the beach could potentially be a struggle to get up and down if you are elderly or unfit. I class myself as healthy and fit and I struggled coming back up them once or twice! The beach itself is ok. The colour of the sea is beautiful, but there are a lot of rocks in the water so you need to make sure you find a decent spot that is clear of them. The sea was fine to swim in once you find a good spot. If you prefer to spend your days on the beach though, I would not recommend this hotel for its beach. The activities. We did not do any, however the choice and the fitness classes looked brilliant from what we saw. For the majority of them you book to go on them the day before in the pool bar. I have seen a lot of reviews saying this hotel caters to Germans. I disagree completely. The majority of guests at this hotel are German. That in no way means they are catering for the Germans. I saw no evidence of the hotel doing things to specifically cater to one nationality. I witnessed the kids from the kids club walking by with TUI staff, both a mixture of English and German children and one of the kids club staff members was speaking fluent English to the children and being very pleasant. Hotel area - there isn't much around the hotel. We walked into the town down the beach and it took an hour. Taxi is 10 euros. There is a mango in the local town and some other designer shops but that's about it. It's worth a visit just to get out of the hotel. Overall summary. This is a very good hotel for families and those who like to be active on holiday. However we would personally not return as we prefer adults only hotels and in hindsight we wish we had chosen a TUI sensimar as we did not think there would be as many children as there were. When I write reviews I have to take into consideration what we paid and I am more than happy with the hotel given we only paid Â£500 each for sea view and I don't think that's bad. If you are going as a couple I would recommend upgrading to the private lodge area for adults only as it looked great! I regret not booking that. Overall, a good holiday and a good hotel for families. More
