There’s plenty going on here, from poolside DJ sets to pre-clubbing foam parties. It’s all in a fantastic location, too – close to Magaluf’s beach, bars and clubs.
The clue is in the name here – this place likes things action-packed. Expect the likes of guest DJs, weekly foam parties, and games and music out by the pool.
You’re right in the centre of Magaluf, so you’ve got bars, clubs and the beach all less than 5 minutes’ walk away.

Luckily we only stayed at Lively for 1 night and yes it was the end of season but honestly the hotel needs knocking down. The reception is falling apart but the colour scheme gives you some hope until you see the rooms. Our room reeked of damp from the second we entered. The air conditioning is minimal and just increased the smell of damp more. The room itself is very outdated and not very Magaluf party. There was one working light next to the windows therefore half the room was dark even in the daytime. The paint on the walls was crumbling off and the sheets were covered in stains. Outside our balcony looked out to... nothing, just the bar rooftop which was covered in rubbish and what we assumed was sick. The shower and bath were mouldy and even worse they were blocked. If I had been here for longer than 1 night, I wouldn't have stayed. The staff were OK and we didn't really come into contact with many of them but the man that worked the 'breakfast' was creepy. Housekeeping knocked on our door twice on the morning we left even though check-out wasn't until 12. Didn't stick around for a day at the pool because it seems it doesn't get any sunshine on the pool until 1/2pm and the pool water doesn't even touch the top. Not sure how they ever made a TV program at this place. The hotel definitely isn't lively and unless it has an update over the winter, I'd recommend everyone to AVOID.More
Me and my friends recently booked to stay in your hotel for 3 nights for a short girls holiday in Magaluf. We arrived to what we thought was going to be a standard hotel so our expectations were not high to begin with but it was much worse. We walked up to the hotel to see the Bali beds, I think they were supposed to be white but they had disgusting black splatters all over them, they hadn’t even been made ready for the day. We then walked into the reception area to check in and we were greeted by the tatty, worn “leather” seats, they looked like they had been ripped up by a dog. The reception area had light fixtures hanging out, there was a whiteboard which had inappropriate drawings on it of drugs and male body parts. There where holiday reps lay on the seating area with their feet up on the tables just sat on their phones. We spoke to the RUDE receptionist, he didn’t have a clue, looked like he didn’t want to be there, (can’t blame him). He asked us for a 25 euro deposit each for the room and the hotel money, then gave us a checklist to fill in when we got to our room, this was to write down all the damages in the room. He told us that our room wasn’t ready and it was being cleaned so to wait 30 minutes. We sat by the pool waiting for our room to be ready. The pool was like a pond, it was dirty had some bits of wrappers in it. We went back into the reception after 30 minutes and the receptionist said it would be another 30 minutes and it’s still being cleaned. We all thought “at least we are getting a clean room”. After waiting 1 hour for the room we went in the lift up to our floor, we had a key for the room not a pass. So very old fashioned. Walked in and the smell hit us! Damp and mould all up the wall over where we were supposed to sleep and damages, the entire room was damaged, balcony door broken, the wardrobe had smashes and it was all peeling away round the edges, there where wires hanging out of the light fixtures, the air con didn’t work, the bathroom had a mirror that had all peeled away either side, the door in the bathroom was broke, the bath was dirty, the room had bits all over the floor, photo was stuck out and ripped, the balcony table and chairs where full of brown scum ,the bedding had public hairs all on it, the television was tiny and about 20 years old! After seeing all of this we just went straight back to the reception and demanded to speak to the manager, but he wasn’t there, we asked for our money back and he only gave us for the 2 nights, we had to pay for 1 night even though we didn’t stay there. IS SO DISGUSTING, STAY FAR AWAY! we ended up staying in a gorgeous hotel called the sotavento! highly recommendedMore
I'm writing this review as I feel compelled to defend the staff that have been wrongly portrayed in quite a few of the earlier reviews. We arrived fairly late evening on 7th of September, as a group of 10 men. After reading previous reviews we were expecting the worse, but being the fun loving type we are, we took time to actually say a smiley hello to all staff members we saw while checking in. It's nice to be nice. The guy on reception took no longer than about 10 minutes to get us all checked in, which included taking payments and deposits for 4 rooms. No bits of paper thrust at us, just friendly efficient service. Yes ok, the rooms are a bit dated, and you would probably struggle to do 100€ damage if I'm honest, but it was clean and comfortable - if you're not delusional enough to expect 5 star at the price. The bar staff were great, always had a laugh and joke with us over the 4 days we were there, but maybe that's because we gave them the respect they deserve and didn't speak to them as though they were servants. At the end of the day, the place doesn't pretend to be something it's not, and if you want to be treated well, just remember to treat the staff with a little respect. More

Would stay again.
Just got back from a week here, firstly the hotel is in an amazing location. There's some good and some bad reviews so we didn't know what to expect. However for the price we paid we wasn't expecting much. We arrived and was greeted by very nice staff and a lovely rep. Our rooms were ready straight away which was at 11.30am. We went up to the room where we was asked to write anything down that was broken in order to receive our deposit back at the end of the week. However when we got there, there was little to tell as the rooms were clean and tidy. The shower was powerful and the rooms were basic but clean. The maids brought fresh towels daily regardless of what they say of every 2 days. And rooms are cleaned most days and beds made. The pool is alot bigger in person and was clean. The hotel was not as noisy as anticipated either. As much as the reviews said the air conditioning doesn't work it does it just isn't as powerful as expected. And we DID get our deposits back too. Overall had an amazing holiday and would stay here again. More
For a girls holiday we didn't require anything special about the hotel, just decent sized, clean rooms , a good pool area and friendly staff and other guests would of done fine. this is NOT what we got here. As soon as we arrived we were turned away and told our rooms weren't ready. We then returned two hours later to check in and the receptionist rudely demanded €100 per room deposit (which wasn't mentioned anywhere). Threw a piece of paper at us and told us to "write anything down that's broken in your room" (lol it was a sign of things to come). So we enter our rooms and they are small but manageable for 3 of us in one and 2 in the other. Very old fashioned but clean.. -curtains were broke -light switches broke -one bed broke -bathroom damp and mouldy -plastic chairs on the balcony with bent legs -balcony table wobbly We had next to no interaction with the staff as we got up late, ate out and then went out, but the few times we used the pool bar all 5 of us were rudely spoken to and basically made fun out of. Three members of staff would be stood chatting and one would walk over to serve and you could see the other two sniggering as the bar man was blatantly rude. Finally when we checked out at 7:00am the receptionist didn't speak, barked at us and then stormed up to "check our rooms". Came back down and was obviously very disappointed that he found our rooms in probably a better state than we found them and shoved our €100 deposits back at us and that was it. Never said good bye or thank you or showed any gratefulness for us staying. Absolutely disgusting place and would never ever return- not even value for money at nearly £450 pp for a week. Could of got somewhere a lot nicer for not much more. I hope the staff see this and the rest of the horrible reviews and either justify themselves or apologise. Ps Nicole the tui scene rep was mint she was fab sorting us all out !!! More
