Visited Magdalena in March 2020. During the Covid 19 period but felt safe as you could clearly see precautions being taken by the hotel team. Our room was very clean, ocean front and so relaxing. It starts with the drive in, viewing what appears to be a good golf course. Next time, I will bring my clubs for sure! Greeted at the front desk with a welcoming smile and a beverage. Escorted to our room, asked if there was anything they can do to help with our stay. The diner buffet was excellent, very tasty feast of local cuisine. Breakfast buffet was included and this was also a delight. Honestly, wish we were at Magdalena right now....so if you can go, GO!! Read less

We booked this holiday through secret escapes. Could not fault the BA flight. On arrival we were taken to our room and told there were 3 pools( also stated on the SE advertisement). In the morning we found we were looking over to a blue site compound with JCBs working on breakwater construction.Reason the sea is so rough you can't swim. Two of the 3 pools were closed. The hotel does have a courtesy bus to Pidgeon Point on the Carribean side which is more sheltered.only one trip each way on any day . 1000& return@1600hrs. It's worth it though. Positives clean,good food ,Staff very good but do have their idiosyncraties!! You need to book in advance for the fine dining and Italian restaraunt but it was no issue. There were really good lunches on offer,the golf was good,so on the whole 6/10. Read less

We booked this bargain week through secret escapes and delivered what we paid for and more, great room overlooking beach and sea could of done with water being a bit warmer in shower but didn't spoil the experience, Food was amazing, sometimes service a little slow but we were on holiday so no rush needed, pool lovely and clean and big shout out to Cecelia the entertainment arranger, she tried so hard to get everyone involved, tough task, island tour was amazing as is this beautiful unspoilt island a true gem. We took advantage of free golf, course is a bit tired, the greens needed attention but again the views and wildlife whilst walking around this course are stunning. We also used the free bicycles great fun. Overall a fabulous week, most of the staff were very very good. Read less
