TUI Magic Life
I stayed there in 2017.  I knew the hotel was fairly big, but I hadn't realised just how enormous the site is! It's also built on a slope, so not only are there long distances to walk, there are also lots of steps and slopes to negotiate. I'm pretty fit, but found it a tiring place to stay in. With about 650 rooms, and with quite a lot of families staying, there could be 1500 people or so on site. Frankly, the place can't cope easily with the numbers of people. The main restaurant in the evening was complete mayhem, with a queue to get a table, and then there were lots of young kids running around screaming and bumping into people. Thankfully, there was an "adults only" section, but that was still noisy. The buffet food at dinner was OK, but I've had much better quality buffets in several cheaper all-inclusive hotels in Costa Calma. The breakfast buffet was, well, a breakfast buffet and it's hard to get that wrong. Bar service usually involved queuing, but the bar staff were pleasant and helpful, and I met some nice fellow guests.  Some nice touches were a self-service fridge with bottles of mineral water, a self-service coffee station, and a self-service fruit selection. The rooms are spacious and reasonably equipped. The shower was inside the bath, which I don't really like (maybe this has been changed in a recent refurbishment?). The rooms are spread around in about 20 blocks, each 3-storeys high. There can be some unwanted noise - there were kids running around the corridors screaming after midnight in the block I was in. I can't understand parents letting their kids do this, but I suppose different people have different standards. Although the hotel is next to the beach, it's on a cliff top, so there are lots of steps to get down to the beach (and the return trip uphill can be challenging!). The hotel is fairly isolated, so you'd need a car to get to places, although I imagine most guests stay put and use the all-inclusive facilities. That's a bit of a shame, as just a few miles away are some of the most stunning beaches you'll find in Europe. I chose to stay at Magic Life as it has a small naturist area with its own pool. However, it was a bit cramped, with rather too many sunbeds for the area available, and I ended up spending my days on the beautiful beaches nearby. So, in summary, if you want to take your kids to a place where they can tear around like loonies all day, and have the cost reassurance of all-inclusive, then Magic Life is OK. If you want somewhere more peaceful, go somewhere else!

TUI affirms that the kitchen of the Hotel Magic Life of Esquinzo is already operational.

He attributes to "a technical defect" the closure by Health of the kitchen of the hotel that had difficulties to solve by "not finding some pieces in Fuerteventura"


"The kitchen of the Tui Magic Life Fuerteventura hotel is already operational and has resumed its activity under normal conditions," says the TUI hotel chain in a statement.

Can't say I'm surprised. I saw cockroaches wandering around in the restaurant when I stayed there.
