This was our first stay at the Magnum and on first impressions the rooms do not inspire. A lick of paint would certainly give this hotel a much better feel. Putting that aside the rooms are clean, fresh towels and linen everyday along with tv, fridge freezer etc... if you are just looking for a place to shower and sleep then this place is ideal, along with not being highly priced. We would return to the magnum as the staff are very welcoming and always on hand to help and its right amongst the restaurants and shops as well as a short walk to the beach.

Room Tip: view from balcony was adjacent wall so would request pool view as sure this would be more pleasant...

Stayed at the Magnum in March for 2 weeks having previously stayed there a couple of years ago. Recent reviews suggested it had gone downhill and unfortunately it has. The rooms now look really dated and the whole place seemed like it needed a good clean up.Our room (307) really needed a good clean. Our balcony had some sort of stains below the aircon unit, the stairs to the room looked like a mop had not touched them for ages and the tap to the sink in the room (not bathroom) had been removed.

Breakfast was the usual eggs but this time no fruit alas. If you look at the dirt/colour of the small waste bin as you enter reception it will give you a good idea of what the whole place is like. On the plus side the location is good, the beds were made every day, pretty sure clean towels each day, lots of hot and cold running water and the staff were friendly.

Have decided not to stay there again and will revert to the Highland Beach where we stayed last year. If you are on a tight budget though and don't expect much then you could still try the Magnum as literally just a place to sleep and shower.

Have like others stayed here a few times but the hotel is now going down hill rapidly. The rooms are the problem, to call them shaby would be a compliment.
Also seem to be getting more Russions who tend to behave as we did years ago in Spain (drunk, noisy .....)

We've stayed at the Magum a few times the location is great and the staff are really friendly and helpful but the rooms definately need an upgrade they are starting to fall apart .I do hope the owner starts to spend some money improving the rooms to encourage people to continue to stay at the hotel
