On a business trip so didn't spend too much time in the hotel but it is well situated on the beach and a promenade a long the beach area. Plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance. Turn left along the promenade and keep walking until you see a restaurant with a yellow sign (sorry I forgot its name) staff welcoming... More

The location is great and the rooms are good as well but the ambience of the hotel as soon as you enter is not good. No basic amenities in the room provided like a kettle or an iron. The lifts are really bad, better to use the stairs otherwise you would be waiting for too long. If some basic improvements... More

We have been holidaying in Las Palmas for over 27 years (not just there!) and the entire beach front area has improved beyond compare. We stayed at The Cristina last week and have to say it did seem to have had a deep clean, the wall paper was gone and all freshly painted. Even the glass on the balcony was... More

I've stayed in the Cristina Hotel for many nights. I can recommend it for people who don't mind weariness, and value great location and price over luxury. The hotel is located next to the Las Canteras beach, and the view from the rooms facing the beach is beautiful. Nearby there are many restaurants, kiosks, and stores. It takes only about... More

Great sea view, that's all that is good, lifts lousy, peeling paint in shower ceiling, outside hotel shrouded in plastic to cover up poor condition. Human faeces on pillar outside reception, says it all (see pictures). The night we stayed it was very windy and cold, had to use the chairs in the room to stop curtains blowing open.

The elevators are terrible and should be replaced. At peak times you wait for ages, sometimes they skip your floor entirely, the doors open and close very quickly so you often can't even get in. Swimming pool is not heated so can't be used much of the year. Our main concern was the very intrusive staff who kept hammering on... More

Elevators did not work properly. A bit too noisy and gym, pool open far too late for business people. Location is good. Hotel rooms are ok, but "made in the 80ies". This a 3 star and not 5 as some prospects state at least at the hotel. Staff friendly and helpful, breakfast good and overall price I paid was acceptable.

Do not think that this is a real five star hotel. The comments made by other reviewers like Michael W and Catherine M are more or less correct. The breakfast was great! The restaurant verry poor! The sundeck was big enough (facing to the west so no sun but shaddow in the morning). Swimmingpool not heated. The location is good... More

We have stayed on Gran Canaria a number of times and had previously researched this hotel as somewhere different to stay. As we were visiting the city we thought why not check it out, we were so pleased we did as this has stopped us making one monumental mistake. What we had envisaged was a top hotel in the city...

We stayed here for one week in January, to say its average is correct, certainly not 4*. The hotel was old and worn, in need of redecorating, very tired decor, the stairway was old & shabby & the carpet in the dining room needed cleaning badly. The pool area looked nothing like the one advertised in pictures, it had very... More
