AN iconic Magaluf hotel is set to be demolished as part of the local council’s efforts to revamp the holiday resort away from its notorious ‘Shagaluf’ reputation.

Hotel Teix, which spans 2,500 square metres, is set to be replaced by an open area aimed at enhancing urban facilities and breathing new life into Magaluf’s core.
