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, 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 and Canarian dishes for dinner. You'll get 1 visit here per week included in your All Inclusive.

Fantastic hotel, great food, lovely beach, friendly staff! 5*****
This review is a little late in coming as I visited this property a few years back for my 21st birthday. The weather in January was lovely and warm, there was always a nice breeze and there was no rain at all. Room:- I stayed in a ground floor sea view room in the last block at the very back of the hotel. It was a very well appointed room with comfy twin beds, a chair, TV, good wardrobe space. The furniture and decor could be described as dated but this didn't bother me in the slightest and the room was kept perfectly clean every day. The bathroom was also well appointed with a bath tub, shower, toilet and sink, toiletries were also provided. The water was always hot no matter what time of day. The view from the terrace was the highlight of the room, with sweeping views across the coastline. Food- The hotel has a large buffet restaurant and several themed restaurants that you have to book for. We only visited the Chinese once and weren't impressed as the variety and the quality of food in the buffet were so good! Breakfast, lunch and dinner were always very good with plenty of choice. There were also snack stations and ice creams at various places around the hotel which we used once or twice and were ok. Bars- The cocktail bar here was very good and was always busy, serving a variety of drinks. Always very strong and large measures served. Went to the nightclub one night as well which was small but fairly entertaining. Staff- All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Took part in the Archery which was fun and the instructor Deema was very friendly and helpful. Beach- The beach is lovely, golden sand and blue sea, you can walk for miles and end up in the town. Beautiful beach. Pools- There were several pools. Only used them once. They seemed to always be nice and clean and there were always plenty of sunbeds. Location- The hotel is around 10 minutes away from the local town but a taxi is only a few euros and worth a visit. Overall, this is a nice resort and as it is not too expensive provides good value for money.More

Fantastic holiday at a fantastic hotel
We have recently returned from our holiday at this hotel and can honestly say it was fantastic! This was our first experience as a family of all inclusive and I think we have been spoilt. My family of 4 were travelling as part of a larger family group of 18 and the hotel couldn't have been better suited. The facilities were top rate and the staff were all extremely helpful and knew exactly what they were doing. Considering the size of this hotel, it never felt like it was overcrowded or that there were a lot of people around even though the hotel was full. We never had to fight for a sunbed, though if you wanted one in the shade then you had to get there early but we were never down at the pool before 10am and always managed to get sunbeds near the rest of the family. The activity pool is the place to be and with the entertainment team doing water aerobics and games in the morning and then water polo and kids club activities in the afternoon there was always plenty going on. The team would always come around to ask if you wanted to take part in the activities but once you said no they left you alone. The food in the all the restaurants was amazing and even with a fussy eater we managed to find something for them to eat so look around at everything if you have one of those, you will find something. I would especially recommend the Italian restaurant as the meal we had in there was top class and the staff can not do enough for you. In the main restaurant the system for seating people when it gets busy is a sight to see with walkie talkies all round the room you never have to wait long. The entertainment team were an absolute delight and special thanks to Lauren, Emma, Tonni, Sam (especially for my youngest who took a real shine to Sam), Mickey, Marius and Sara (and all the others too!) for making our holiday so special. The energy those guys have is endless and they always have a smile on their faces. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and would consider returning there with my family in the future. Keep up the good work guys!More

Great hotel, this was my second visit to the club magic life. A lively hotel with lots of activity options and a beautiful pool. Access to the beach can be difficult for some as there's lots of stairs to climb, however well worth it as its a beautiful beach & about a 20 minute walk to the town along the beach. We had a sea view room which was perfect & well worth booking. A fab hotel ! More
Stated here for a week and it was lovely. Rooms were clean and roomy (2 adults and 1 child). Lots of sunbeds available around all pool areas. Staff were friendly and efficient. 24 hour bar was a bonus :). Restaurant was big and lots of choice from buffet. Would recommend and visit again.More
