Once again, tripadvisor has led us to a place that perfectly fits our needs and wants. El Capricho, all eight beach-front apartments of it, is a blessing - especially compared to the insufferable maze of box hotels that scar Playa del Ingles like the plague. First of all, Maspalomas is place to be. Secondly, El Capricho is the place to... More

Just returned from a 3 week stay at El Capricho and couldn't fault it. This was our fourth year going to Gran Canarias and by far this was the best in terms of location, cleanliness and service. We stayed in an apartment behind El Capricho 2 years ago which was cheaper but service and quality were rubbish (Oasis Apartmentos, beware!).... More

The location is fantastic being just a couple of meters from Masoplmas beach. The apartments themselves are spot on for self catering with a bathroom, well equiped kitchen (hobs, microwave, coffee maker and lots of pans etc), bedroom, living room and area in the garden/balcony. The only thing I would say is the beds are pretty hard which was fine... More

We were absolutely blown away by this stunning little apartment block right on the beach in Maspalomas. It was basic but perfectly clean and well equipped. The maid service was more than sufficient, and the management and reception staff were friendly and helpful. We compared the price to our local prices in South Africa and were pleasantly surprised.
