This hotel is geared up to German speaking guests with fewer than 10% English speaking leading to some confusion at mealtimes. Hotel is excellent as is the location but is let down by poor service. Entertainment was mediocre

My husband and I enjoyed a very pleasant holiday at this hotel. Staff,food, accommodation etc. were excellent. Sunbed allocation for the duration of the stay works very well. Dedicated no smoking areas around the pool and outdoor seating areas would be greatly appreciated by non smokers.

The Hotel is in a fabulous location, just a step away from the sandy beach of Maspalomas. On arrival you can choose your sunbeds and they are yours for the duration of your stay - great system!!!

Best location on the island. Quiet, well equipped hotel. Polite, friendly staff and good food. Buses to everywhere just 5 minute walk away. Hire your car from Top Car, good price and insurance for small extra cost.
