Positive: location, and basic, but good food. Negative: air conditioner in the room is not working We have ordered a sea view room, the view was really outstanding. Unfortunately the air conditioner in the room was not working. We have asked to fix it, on the second day they have fixed it but it has worked for the several hours, and then it was just blowing the hot air. We have asked again to fix it, but nothing has happened and then they pretended that they have lost our claim. We have asked to change the room, but of cause no rooms were available. We are still there, air conditioner is not working it is really hot and humid night. Managers - if you are reading that - please help! I do not consider that it is fair to pay for the room without the air conditioner if we have ordered the room with that and if it is not possible to fix it in three days! I think the air conditioner is essential and there should be some back-up solution (like portable one or something like that). Collapse

Second year at this hotel. Rooms basic but clean, sheets and towels changed regularly. Food was better this year with decent meat options at both lunch and dinner. Plenty of bar staff so no long queues for drinks which was good. Location is perfect only yards from beach and shops. Total value for money! I have been to 4 and 5 star hotels and can honestly say thatwith the exception of the reception staff, all the waiters, bar men and maids are the most pleasant and helpful people I have ever come across. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they really helped make my holiday. Collapse

Stayed here all inclusive at the end of May for a week with my partner and overall had a great holiday! We arrived around midday to be told our room wasn't ready yet so had to wait an hour which we weren't too bothered about and went and sat round the pool bar for a drink whilst we waited. The room we stayed in was very basic but we wasn't too fussed about this as it was only a place to sleep! Rooms were cleaned everyday and towels changed everyday as well. There was also a hair dryer in the bathroom and kettle in the room. We paid €35 for a safe and were given €15 at the end of the week when we had returned the key. We had an amazing view from our balcony of Palma Nova beach. Only thing I can say I would of liked in the room was a fridge to keep drinks cool but not sure if this was because we were all inclusive. The food is ok and there are plenty of choices but we did eat out a couple of nights as we felt the food was becoming a bit repetitive but then most all inclusive hotels can be like this. The pool area was clean and pool nice. But be prepared to get up early to reserve sun beds otherwise you won't get one! The location of this hotel is great! Literally on the beach and plenty of bars and restaurants just a short walk away. We was probably a bit to close to magaluf strip then we would of liked though and could hear people coming back from the strip early hours but not a big problem. Be prepared to wait for the lifts! We stayed on the fourth floor so ended up taking the stairs quite a lot of the time but wouldn't of been happy if I was any higher up! Basic hotel but it was a reasonably cheap holiday so you get what you pay for! Overall I would definitely stay here again. Collapse

Stayed at the Fergus Tobago for 7 nights in late May / early June. My wife and I were actually supposed to have been flying from Heathrow to Cyprus, but we were unfortunately caught up in the British Airways fiasco so never actually got there (well done BA). After spending most of the Bank Holiday weekend in Heathrow airport, we decided to cut our losses and head home so that we could at least try to book on a flight out of Bristol on the following day. Didn't care where we ended up as long as we went somewhere and then worry about getting our money back from BA when we got home. Mallorca seemed like the obvious choice of destination, simply because of the volume of flights that go there. Sure enough, we were able to get on an Easyjet flight on the Bank Holiday Monday so all we had to do next was book a hotel. We didn't really have time to laboriously trawl through hotel reviews, so we booked on a "better the devil you know" basis, meaning that we chose the Fergus Tobago because we had stayed there about 7 or 8 years ago and it was pretty good then so we assumed that it would be a safe bet to go back there. We have been fairly frequent visitors to Palmanova over the years and we normally stay in one of the "better" hotels (see my other reviews if you are interested in which one), however, we needed to keep the cost down because we had spent quite a few of our hard earned pounds on the cancelled holiday to Cyprus and the Fergus Tobago suited our cash flow situation. On arrival at the hotel, the reception area looked pretty much the same as I remember it. Not really that inspiring, but clean, spacious and reasonably well presented. We were checked in by a friendly and efficient receptionist and were offered help with our luggage if we had needed it. We had booked half board because we know Palmanova very well and we knew that we would not make much use of the all inclusive option. This however did not stop the receptionist proceeding to place bands on our wrists. I told him that I did not want or need the wrist bands because we were half board, to which he replied, "yes, these are half board wrist bands and the all inclusive ones were a different colour". This is the first time that I have ever been "wrist banded" on half board and consequently the bands stayed on our wrists until we got to our room and got the scissors out of our case (it's bad enough wearing them when you have to). My first impression of the room was that, just like the reception area, it also looked pretty much the same as I remember it - that was until we looked a bit closer. The beds were rock hard, the bedding looked more tired than we were after our early morning flight, there was no plug on the wash basin so I had to take the one off the bath, the towel rail fell off the wall twice during our 7 days and the balcony door made a horrendous squealing noise every time we opened or closed it. It was however, adequately clean and in all fairness, the air conditioning was quiet and effective. In addition to that, the water pressure and temperature in this hotel is excellent, making the shower over the bath an absolute joy to use. Sadly, as we explored the rest of the establishment it became increasingly evident that very little had been done to this hotel over the last 7 or 8 years and appeared to be in a state of decline and in need of some serious refurbishment. In the main bar and restaurant areas, walls and ceilings are stained and in poor condition. There are 2 lifts which seemed to be in good working order but were painfully slow and the lighting in the corridors leading to the rooms is very poor. We found the food to be very inconsistent. One night it would be quite good and then the next night it would be awful. There was one night when everything was "curryfied". We are not fussy eaters but we do not do curries, but that night, no matter what we had, it tasted hot and spicy. It was almost as if the chef had opened a tin of curry powder and then sneezed. The only one plus point here is that the bread was always fresh and very tasty. Before dinner, we always like to have a couple of drinks in the bar. It is a chance to unwind from a busy day at the beach and build up a bit of an appetite. Besides, you should never eat on an empty stomach! In the Fergus Tobago, unwinding in the bar takes on a whole new meaning. In fact, I would describe it more as getting stressed out in the bar. On our first night I asked the barman for a pint of beer/lager. It should have been obvious that I was not all inclusive because (a) I did not have a wristband on and (b) I was holding a 10 Euro note in my hand. The barman gingerly placed my pint on the counter which was in a wobbly plastic glass which clearly did not look big enough to hold a pint and said "3 Euros and 50 cents please sir". Now we don't do all inclusive very often so I am not really that clued up on what to expect, but I was damn sure that if I was going to be expected to pay for that pint (being half board), then I was going to want it to be in a proper glass. When I "diplomatically" explained this to the barman, he asked me if I was going to be drinking it inside or outside, to which I replied "look, I am not a child and regardless of where I decide to drink it, I can assure you that I am very unlikely to break it, now can you please give me a pint in a proper glass that does not wobble when I pick it up". He agreed to give me a fresh pint in a proper glass but every time that I went to the bar for the rest of the week, I always had to ask for a pint in a glass (annoying and unnecessary). In addition to that, there were a few occasions when there were people serving behind the bar who had clearly not been trained to pull pints or to use the till which meant that not only did you end up with half a pint of beer and half a pint of froth, it also meant that you had to wait ages for your change. Because the majority of the guests are all inclusive, I think that the hotel management feel that they can put just about anybody behind the bar because none of the guests are going to care. Well I'm sorry Mr. Fergus, I certainly care and I am very passionate about good service if I am a paying guest, so you really need to up your game in this area. Evening entertainment was really a non starter for us as it was mostly tailored for the kids. I have nothing against that, but for any couples thinking of staying at this hotel, please don't expect nightly professional cabaret acts. However, there is always some good entertainment to be had in some of the bars throughout Palmanova so you may want to think twice about taking up the all inclusive option. I can't comment much on the pool area because we didn't use it (prefer the beach). "Why go on a holiday to the seaside if you do not intend to be beside the sea". The one good thing that this hotel has going for it is it's location. It is overlooking one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. Palmanova beach (or Son Matias beach to be precise) is just a stones throw away. That is if you can actually find a stone to throw at it in the first place because Palmanova beach is so sandy. Magaluf is also just a couple of hundred yards away if that's what rocks your boat. It was the location of this hotel which attracted us to it 7 or 8 years ago and was the reason why we chose it above other similarly priced hotels on this occasion. People of my age (late 50's) will undoubtedly remember the 70's sitcom called "Allo Allo". One of the characters in that fabulous sitcom was the Italian captain, Alberto Bertorelli who was famous for his catch phrase "What-a mistake-a to make-a!" This was exactly the phrase that was constantly going through my mind during our 7 night stay at this hotel. As is often the case, I feel that "all inclusive" has ruined this hotel and is also killing the trade for local bars and restaurants. Consequently, I would just like to end this review by saying how sad it was to find that Alan and Tracy had closed the Welsh Mosquito bar which was just down that hill from the Fergus Tobago. We will sincerely miss you, as will many others. Collapse
