I went in mid December staying about a 5-10 minute walk away. I went here each night of my holiday and was never disappointed. It was quiet on weeknights but on the weekend it did tend to pick up quite a lot. The bar staff were all very friendly and nice, not pushy and intimidating like other reviews suggest. No... More

December and not a lot going on with some bars without a customer. Mainly bars on either side of a paved area with a chance to imbibe outside at for example Lineker's. Better off going to the marina across the road.

24 Hour Square is plain average. Having spent a long weekend just recently my bro and I decided to pay a second visit to the square for drinks. The bars are tired looking, some are very quiet for a holiday area and the furniture dated and worn. There are touts everywhere! They sell cheap copies such as MK Michael Korrs... More

We just happened to stumble across this place after a nice walk from the marina, the second we got anywhere near it we were approached by touts offering drinks offers, (which wasn't really a problem) but the literal second they stopped talking, we had two guys proposition us to buy drugs one after another. We clearly were not interested yet... More

Absolutely terrible. I'm a local and wasnt even intending to go into any of the bars, just trying to walk past to meet a friend, but the 'PR' staff were literally begging us to go into their bars, a simple no and walk away doesnt cut it. They follow you around, begging you to come into their bars with an... More

Don't know whether the all inclusive has killed the nightlife but we wanted to see the square just to say we had been, it was very disappointing, even though it was high season and a sat and late everywhere seemed quiet and the bar touts were very pushy. Not for me.

If you are looking for late night drinks and a dance and a laugh then here is the place for you, as long as you have low expectations!! Often do drink promos but be careful as many do not continue these deals and some staff try to charge double the amount that it is worth! However, I would advise that... More

While staying in Midas for 2 weeks our teenage kids convinced us to have a "family night out" in what should be known as BenilMADina, we parked the cars in the underground car park at the square, and the minute we got out of the car park we were surrounded by PR staff and when I say surrounded I'm not...
