Golfers paradise
We loved it! We were in a Magellan Club room and the little extras that were included we loved. At 5.30 each afternoon we seen on the terrace having complimentary drinks and appetizers. For the breakfast included we could mix with the general guests or had our own area for the clubbers. The sporting facilities that are available was second to none. The golf course was fantasic ( the main reason for staying )

not worth for the value.
i arrived there no one picked up our baggages. During checkin nothing explained even the location of breakfast. they just hand overed a key. that was all. room was small and smelled. No view at all if you go to garden view. it is not a garden. No door between toilet and bath room. you can hear everyting from the toilet.

Great resort for relaxation, food just okay
The stay itself was very comfortable. Like a lot of hotels, food offered within the resort was not so great but very pricey. The pool was great, the room was spacious and cleaned regularly. The view from our room was beautiful. We had a sea view room on the 5th floor. We were initially placed on the 2nd floor but the view was barely of the sea but of the other hotel rooms so we asked to be moved to a better room, which they assisted with. Wi-fi was weak.

Overpriced, NO value for money, run-down hotel
Not value for money. Perhaps it is because the rates were discounted, the room given to me was rundown... chipped wooden panelings and stains on the bed-sheets. The aircond duct was so disgusting, green stuff was growing around the metal frames. The extra bed had stones in them and the towels were frayed at the sides and very thin. Not the fluffy hotel towel standards. The pool and beach was mediocre. And only one lift to service the entire harbor side. A real test of patience. I regret the money i spent at Magellan coz i think for the same amount i would have gotten a better stay closer to the city.
