This place has lots of positives the main one being it's location it's only a 5 minute wallk to the Yumbo and to the start of the dunes. The supermarket is very close by as well. The resort was very quiet and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.The rooms do need a re-paint but the owners have only... More

Travelled and stayed here in January 2013. I looked at the comments about the doors. Our doors did close, with a little effort, but we didn't experience any issues with crime. They're not quite as close to the Yumbo as they say, but only a 10 minute walk. The bungalows themselves, were great, as was the manager looking after the... More

I stayed here end of October 2012. I'll start with the positives. Its in a good location beside Cita centre, you can get the bus from the airport which drops you off at the top of the street for 3 euro, so very handy to get to. It's also quite close to the beach, the apartments themselves are modern and... More

I stayed in this resort last week, it's very different to most other Gran Canaria resorts in it's modern styling and finish, the resort has a real luxury feel to it. The rooms are modern, spacious and very clean. The location is great, close to both the beach and the shops (Yumbo, Cita etc) I will certainly be staying here... More

I am the CEO of Amro Worldwide - a British gay & lesbian travel specialist. I stayed in Placida Mar last weekend to experience what it was like as a new gay resort. Two things stick in mind Firstly the external appearance of the resort clad in a grey tile looks much more upmarket than the traditional white washed or... More

We were due to stay at a complex called Club Mancha Sanctum and on arrival we were unable to gain access to the complex and told that our booking was not valid. We had booked with Mantrav in the UK and they were unable, and unwilling to help us. We spent the first night in our car and the next... More

I stayed at this small development of nine single story apartments in October 2010. The location is excellent, 5 minutes from the Yumbo shopping centre and two minutes from the beech boardwalk. The apartment was very clean with a tidy layout. Small development recently refurbished. Quiet and suitable for the independent traveller. Nice pool and surrounds to relax. Enough beds... More
