As always, the best feature here is the location and the pools. On the last day our flight was at 8pm - they let us leave our bags in the reception area and show in a staff shower block after returning from the beach - this was appreciated. We've stayed here 4 times now. We got stuck in noisy block... More

Still the best position in the resort. We did not suffer any noise problems. Apartments clean and welcoming. Will return again. Restaurants on the beachfront very casual But good value and relaxing. Only a short walk to the cita centre.

Spend a week at Arco Iris and was very pleased. Playa del Ingels can be too much in terms of tourists, but this hotel is fortunately located a bit off the center, so you can enjoy a more quite atmosphere and view of Dunas de Maspalomas from the rooms. The rooms are large and clean. Not everyday room cleaning though... More

Having just returned from a one week stay (July 2012) Arco Iris Apartments are great value for money, clean with good facilities. Location is great as you are far enough from noise but close enough to walk to. We stayed in block three (7 in all) and was further away from restaurants which was not a problem. Five minutes walk...

We stayed here in June 2012 and Dec 2010. I agree with the previous reviews -- the main advantage is the location. This year we had trouble booking as the usual booking websites didn't have Arco Iris available and the reception said they couldn't take direct bookings. They told us to book via a German company called Schauinsland Reisen which... More

We chose this hotel using previous reviews. We were looking for QUIET clean 1-bedroom apartment near the beach, and this was the cheapest one that met all those requirements, according to trip-advisor and other reviews. Oh, and we wanted a reasonable level of cooking facilities. How did it do in practise? Clean. Comfy beds. Attractive level of appearance. Reasonably sized... More

Fabulous views and position, just off the beach. Maid service was every couple of days ( not too early, after lunch actualy) leaving us to have... More

We were on the second floor and had a fantastic view of the dunes. The apartments are built in such a way that at this time of year certainly they do not get the full glare of the sunshine beating it. They are clean and well managed. The lack of small screaming children was a bonus and being away from... More

We stayed here for a week in June. We stayed in Arco Iris 4. We had a ground floor apartment, and if we had had a top floor apartment, the score would have been excellent :-) The apartment is nice and spacious. The terrasse was good for having breakfast before leaving to the beach and having a drink in the... More
