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.

Me and my girlfriend have just come back from a weeks visit to the hotel, and whilst we enjoyed the stay we couldn't help but feel that it could have been a lot better. First the good points; the hotel is within walking distance to the beach and although the steps are quite steep it is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel and the beach itself is fantastic. The pool areas are also very good with a huge main pool and several smaller pools around the hotel and the pool bar had drinks and food within a close distance to the sun beds so you could sunbathe with a drink in one hand and a toastie in the other if you so pleased! The weather whilst we stayed was also brill and the beach, pool and weather all contributed to us enjoying our stay. The food was also good and didn't really get repetitive which is a problem we often find when staying in an all inclusive and some nights they had freshly cooked steak and beef fillets and also fish which was very tasty. Now the bad points and there are quite a few of them unfortunately; first the rooms. On first impressions we were rather impressed with the rooms which looked spacious and modern but after spending a week in there it was clear they are in need of some serious maintenance. One night I got locked in the bathroom as the door had locked itself and after about 20 minutes of fiddling with the door I managed to break free! The coat hangers on the walls fell off, the bathroom handrail had the chrome ends coming off it and the underneath the sinks it was very rusty. These weren't even the worst part of the rooms. The walls are incredibly thin and being sandwiched between two young families, this meant us waking every morning to screaming or crying kids much to our annoyance. On our final day also our safe broke and when a security guard came to check he said he needed to get a new one and would be back in 20 minutes. After 1 hour of waiting and getting no answer we decided to head to the beach with all our valuables rather than wait the whole day for the security guard to not come. The biggest letdown of the holiday for us however was the entertainment. Daytime entertainment looked good, in particularly the classes but there was no awareness of the activities going on from the entertainment team which meant we missed a few activities we would have liked to take part in. We also wanted to join one of the morning bike tours but to do so you had to sign up in a half hour slot in the middle of the day by the pool bar, turned up by the bar and there is no hint of anyone with a sign up sheet for a tour. Went and asked reception where to do this and they said at the radio booth by the bar. Went the next day and again nobody was there. The evening entertainment was the worst with the same four entertainers dancing to old, usually Michael Jackson songs, every night and whilst they were good dancers it got very repetitive. This coupled with the awful drinks served in the evening, which tasted of pure alcohol meant once our evening meal was finished we were rather bored as there is nowhere in the local area to go either. We mainly came to fuerteventura for the weather and the beach and pool and therefore this ticked all boxes for us but because of the many problems we had with the hotel we certainly would not stay here again. P.S. Do not waste your time or money going on the whale and dolphin trip ran by the diving centre in the complex. We spent 40 euros to essentially go out on a dinghy holding on for our lives! Even if we saw whales and dolphins we couldn't take any pictures as our phones would have got soaked or even gone overboard! More

Good Hotel but not Magical
Stayed for 2 weeks in the Private Lodges, lovely room with nice touches but could do with updating, fab view from our room of the beach. Fridge was re filled daily with beer, water and soft drinks. No tea/coffee making facilities in room which was disappointing. Room should have been cleaned daily but came back twice and no one had been in. Air con was hit and miss, beds weren't very comfortable and had a type of plastic sheet on which made them sweaty. Pool area in the private lodge area was very nice and well maintained, enough sunbeds for all, but the pools were freezing which was a big disappointment in 2 weeks only saw half a dozen people brave it, most dipped the toe and that was it, You will need pegs for the beds as very strong winds even in August/September. Although the Private Lodge Area was very nice it lacked any atmosphere, seemed very clinical, people seemed to enjoy their own company and didn't socialise difficult to get a good morning from some. The lounge bar area was very well stocked with drinks, many branded and it was help yourself, peanuts were available, cakes were put out between 2 and 5 but be quick as they often went fast with some taking more than a couple of slices only to throw them away. No atmosphere in here either. The main restaurant is buffet and the food was very good, at times excellent, if you can't find something to eat there then you must have a problem. Option of eating in the adults only area was a welcome relief, as the main area is quite noisy and sounds echo around. The adult area was nice but at times clearing and setting of tables was very slow. The big downfall for the restaurant was the queues for evening meals, no matter what time we tried we ended up queuing. There are 3 other restaurants to eat in but bookings are taken at 8am in the morning for the next day, sorry but I'm on holiday and didn't intend getting up early to queue for a table, maybe this is something that the hotel should review. The pool snack bar serves a variety of snacks in the day toasties, hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, chips etc but it felt a bit like a school canteen with food served on child style plastic plates. There are a couple of bars around the complex and service by staff was excellent, lovely to have a drink served in a glass not plastic. Reception/Cleaning/Gardening/Entertainment Staff were all very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, unlike the Thomson/TUI reps who were rude and need training in customer service. If you enjoy a stroll out, this place isn't for you, there is nothing within walking distance and a taxi will cost approx 9/10 euro's each way into the town which is very German orientated. We hired a car for 3 days which was a relief to get off the complex and have a look around the Island, some nice places and beaches. We hired the car from Elizabeth car rentals which is based in reception and service was excellent paid cash everything included no deposit or card details needed to be left (so no rip off charges). Beautiful sandy beach below the complex and you can hire 2 sunbeds and an umbrella for 13.5 euro's for the day.There is a fabulous bar on the beach open till late and they do fab cocktails and food, even providing a blanket when its starts to get chilly. Nice place but wouldn't returnMore
Excellent return visit
We have just returned from our 2nd visit having holidayed here at the same time last year. Having never been to the same place twice it immediately says a lot for the hotel that we picked this hotel again. Our two weeks were as good as last year and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We arrived quite late to the hotel but were quickly checked in with a much needed welcome drink after the coach transfer. We’d emailed in advance to request the same block as before and were given a top floor room in Block 11 overlooking the main activity pool with fantastic views of the sea. Our room was very spacious and clean and the fridge stocked with soft drinks and water. Some fruit and a bottle of wine were also placed in the room for arrival. The cleaners do a fantastic job and tidy the rooms on a daily basis. If you want clean towels you just place them in the bath and they will replace them. The cleaners seem to be working all day but always have a smile and say hello whenever they see you. We always used the main activity pool as it is most suitable for our 3 year old being graduated in depth from 0.20m to 1.5m. It’s also the hub of the entertainment with the magic radio and pool activities. The other pools are much quieter if that’s what you prefer. There have been some changes in the last year with some of the sunbeds removed to make space for outside seating now that the pool bar offers greater lunch options. The only downside to this is that there is now less shaded areas and most of the sun beds are now in the sun. The food here is excellent with so much choice and quantity in the main restaurant. We ate differently every night so the food is definitely not repetitive. We always fed our son from the main area so he was eating decent meals of meat, veg, pasta etc. I would say the kids section is for lazy parents who are happy giving their children pizza, hot dog sausages and chips every night while they watch cartoons on iPads rather than interacting and talking to each other . It’s probably these lazy parents who then moan about the food. We also tried the Flavours restaurant which was fantastic. You get 3 courses of 5 dishes from Spain, Turkey, Greece, Tunisia and Egypt. There is a tablet on the table so you can read about each dish and where it’s from etc which is a great idea. This is a full a la carte dining experience. We also went to Downtown which has replaced the Italian. It’s billed as street food but serves things like fajitas, burgers, tacos, fish and chips etc. The portions are large so most people would probably be happy after one or two things. It’s a nice change and relaxed affair from the hustle and bustle of the buffet. The White Party and Neon Party are definitely the best of the evening entertainment. The evening theatre shows are poor with miming and the entertainment team dancing but the theatre is full each night so some people must enjoy it. We preferred sitting outside the plaza bar where there was recorded music. Some nights there is also live music but these are also not so good with a singer and keyboard player and most songs being in German. All in all this is a great family hotel and we would definitely recommend it and would return again. More
I was there with my family one week in September. We were a group of 13 people and it was easy to stay together in the common areas such as the pool or restaurant even if the hotell was full. The food is excellent, which is a big plus in an all inclusive resort, the facilities are nice and clean, the room was big and comfortable and the staff was really friendly and service minded. They also have nice training facilities with a lot of group activities. I recommend this hotel not only for families with kids but also if you travel as a couple, there are many areas that are quiet and there is place for everyone. More
Viveka Daura G,
This was our first visit to the Hotel and on reading some of the comments we were a bit sceptical of what to expect but we can honestly say we have had a fantastic time, from Check-in to Check-out everything was great. The hotel is very clean and the grounds are spotless and well maintained, didn't see a bit of rubbish anywhere and this was down to the hard-working staff they have. All the staff were pleasant and greeted you every time with a smile and acknowledgement. The views of the beach below from the sunterrace were breathtaking and it was lovely to stroll along the beach, there are some steep steps down so be careful but much easier access via the Private Lodges. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary whilst on holiday and I would just like to say a big thank you to Maria Canto in Guest Services along with the help of her team who put together a truly memorable day that we will never forget thank you so much all the special touches these were greatly appreciated. Therefore if you are celebrating a special occasion whilst on holiday I would definitely recommend you speaking to Maria or anyone from her team for their assistance. For the 10 days we were there we ate at the Magico Restaurant and the food is amazing, how anyone can say in previous reviews that they couldn't find anything to eat is beyond me as there is so much choice it's unbelievable. We also ate at the Downtown Restaurant which again was also fantastic, staff were pleasant and the food amazing and was never ending. The pool area was huge and again very clean and maintained. There were loads of sunbeds to choose from although if you preferred to be in the shade these were always taken so a bit of advise get up early and reserve. There are however signs up to say you cannot reserve the beds and towels will be removed but we didn't see anyone enforcing this during our stay. The food at the lunchtime in this area were mainly chips, burgers, toasties, pizza, pasta etc and was always replenished quickly and again the whole area was kept clean by the hard-working staff they had. Overall we had a fantastic and amazing holiday and we would definitely recommend this Hotel to family and friends and I'm sure we will be visiting again soon, so please don't be put off by some of the negative comments, give it a go.
