    large terrace facing sun with table,chairs, and sun chairs. Clean room with all you need in the kitchen. small supermarket beside the complex. A taxi stop and a bus stop outside the door... Quiet and good food served in the restaurant. Betty the receptionist !

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Everything was according to high standart. I would strongly recommend this hotel everybody who wants to stay in that area and be able to reach the beach within the walking distance.

    Internet connection was very weak, in fact it reminded me of dial-up, it cost 16 euros per 4 days though.

    modern well appointed and clean with well trained staff. I have stayed at the hotel at different times over the last 10 years and booked family and friends into the hotel and it has always delivered. Top marks for the best holiday hotel in the area!!

    it would be good to have better area for internet use....

  • Older travelers

    Great location, well maintained , 130 tv channels in most languages with 4 movie channels all complimentary. Spacious and well fitted apartments. Good air con system. Attention to detail. Good overall price. Would return & recommend.

    Beds could do with upgrading. Breakfast is just passable for a 4 star . Could improve things there. No other complaints.

    +++ Excellent accommodation, with the best of a hotel and an apartment combined. There is a bar and a restaurant in-house (as with a hotel) but the rooms are fully equiped with a complete kitchen (apartment). Very good restaurant (a la carte), good breakfast buffet, excellent service, friendly staff, beautiful rooms, nice pool, free towels for the beach, every day cleaning and clean towels on the room. Walking distance to the nearest beach (Playa Del Inglès) is 20 minutes downhill, but take a taxi back to the hotel, it will cost you only 3 euro.

    - - - Everything at the accomodation is typical Dutch, so there are a lot of Dutch visiters. Examples are the dinner buffet, with paëlla without fish (??), French fries, schnitzels and yogurt. Half of the staff speaks Dutch and in the little supermarket in the accomodation the sell Calvé peanut butter. I had the feeling I had a holiday in Holland, but than with lots of sunshine. More Spanish influence would be great, such as tapas on the a la carte menu!

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Generous and well designed bungalow for a family with children. Pool for babies with heated water. OK choices in the buffet. Very nice garden.

    Expensive Wi-Fi access. Ant all over in the kitchen. Small main pool, not for swimmers. Noisy on the road side.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Clean, comfortable and spacious apartment. Friendly and helpful desk staff. Short taxi ride to beautiful beach at Maspalomas. Near the Jumbo Centre where there are lots of restaurants and bars.

    Wifi costs 20 euro for a week but you can use it around the resort as you log into a hotspot provider (wavenet).

  • Family with children
    9.6

    We liked the nice athmosphere and the friendliness of the staff with families with children.

    Apart of a small misunderstanding at the check-in, it was a fantastic stay. We will certainly return to this hotel. Maybe the choice of the dinner buffet should be improved.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Very friendly staff. Great breakfast buffet and poolside dining. Lots of activities for small children. The Hotel is well maintained and clean. We stayed in a bungalow which was clean and we enjoyed the patio and sunning deck on top.

    Only negative was the hardness of the sofa and beds in our bungalows. Got used to it during the week but...

  • Couple
    9.6

    We were accommodated with an early check in on our first day, due to early flight, without hesitation and use of the luggage room to keep our belongings etc's until check in. Staff were very friendly. Very central to the gay centre, beach 15 mins walk and maspalomas sand dunes were under a mile from this beach!
