This hotel has immense potential but some maintenance is needed. We have stayed here many times and some stays were amazing while others were lacking. Pros: Breakfast is amazing Pools are lovely and inviting Ocean view is breath- taking Staff is friendly Cons: No hot water The toilet in our room was problematic, the engineer did try his best to fix it but it never fully functioned properly however we figured out how to get it to flush when it started acting up. Adjoining door wasnt closed properly and guests in the other room opened it. Overall would stay again because of the view, breakfast and pools but there is definitely room for improvement. We are in a pandemic so I know things will not be as smooth as usual but more could be done to avoid simple errors. Read less

Beautiful space to create memories. The breeze flowing throughout the hotel is incredible. The pool is large and spacious so it never felt crowded. The beach the resort is on is not very swimmable, pretty rough with lots of moving currents. It’s beautiful and enchanting though, to watch and admire from far.

This was a very memorable occasion and the staff of Magdalena Grand ensured that we enjoyed it. Even with the Covid restrictions and limitations with in-house dining, you guys made our experience amazing. The sunrise and sunset added to the dynamic scenery.

A LOT has been taken with COVID, but not Magdalena's standards! Whether it's for downtime, dinnertime, breakfast or business, Magdalena is excellent. Their breakfast especially & staff are excellent & I would recommend it as a perfect start of the day! Kudos to Magdalena! Y'all are a cut above so many!❤
