I was also shocked about Tom Browns in the Maga centre, we always eat there, this year we never got the chance it was shut.

I can honestly see a massive down turn in Maga not that I want to see this but its happening.

It appears that the Brits want it open but giving in now.

The prostitute thieves, drug pushers and lack of police control over this problem have totally killed the resort off, Ive never seen the Piano bar so dead, I was so disappointed with it this year.

Me and Mick were offered cocaine on the streets of maga, we had prossies shout over to us but they didnt chase or bother us.

I hate to say this but the place is seedy now for me the magic has gone

My advice if you go anytme in October on onwards go to Palma Nova it had more buzz

Yep can believe the transformation from last year to this year. It either been a very clever tactic of the powers to run the place down so they can buy it up cheaply or they simply do not care.

Magaluf as it was just doesn't match up with what has been planned, it can only be one or the other,

I wonder which it is going to be Shocked wtf

Inteesting to hear Magaluf is dead yet Arenal is buzzing bearting in mind they are similar styled resorts, I know a comment said it maybe due to the German half term but still.

I think I said a while ago, maybe last year, certainly this year, Magaluf at night is just a dump now IMO.

Well when we all went in April the deal for all inc at about £340 was daft mate. Not sure S/C was any cheaper but there's plenty of eating out choices there if you manage to find a s/c deal.

Some mates of mine went to Benidorm and had a great time. Ive never been but sounds a laugh.

I understand that the rest of the Island is still busy due to the weather still being good.

When I looked at Daryn's pics of Magaluf this year, I couldn't believe how "empty" it looked compared to Santa Ponsa (where I was staying) at the same time.

It was still busy & quite lively there  -  day & night time.

Jen, I have heard from friends SP is still busy.


I think that maybe Maga has targeted the young single crowd at the cost of families and older people over the years. Maga has always been a livley resort but it was also a place where you could take the family.

I think Palma Nova and SP are much better 'all round' resorts IMO.

I totally agree Ro, TBH even PN was fairly quiet. But the photo of "The Strip", it was basically deserted. Possibly Thursday night to Saturday was busy with Stags & Hens etc, but Sunday to Wednesday was so dead.

The question is, have the Bars & Nightclubs made enough money in the main season? We saw plenty of Restaurants either empty or shut, can not be worth opening in the week surely?

I still think its because of the prossie problems, people are frightened of the place now. I can see alot of places shutting down next year if it continues.

Benidorm is an awesome place for entertainment. We sat in one bar all night and watched the entertainment, it was like Sunday night at the palladium.

Just back from our week in the Sol Mirlos (Cheers for the recommendation @Mark, we all really enjoyed the hotel clap ) & we all thought PalmaNova was much better than Maga. Holy sh!t Maga's in a poor state, wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Funny others have mentioned Benidorm as I was there for a few days at the start of the month & IMHO too it's much better than Maga, both for families & stags/hens.
Can't see me ever going back to Magalluf, not even if I'm holiday on another part of the island.

Great to see you back HH. cheers Glad you had a good time mate. You are right Magaluf has really gone down hill big style. Myself & Daryn went to the Piano Bar a couple of times & it was pretty dead TBH, no problem getting a seat, it was never like that. A few Golfers were there & a few couples, not me & Daryn BTW. nono lolol

Going to try to get a long weekend in Benidorm next year. But we will still go to Magaluf/Palma Nova for the 2015 meet up. meetup
