Rooms and bathrooms are of agood size... More

We had a balcony overlooking the gardens and it was a suntrap in the late afternoon. The food is just OK. I admit that I'm a... More

We stayed here for a week. Hotel very clean and comfortable, good variety of food and drink and all staff very friendly. Swimming pool and hotel grounds very pretty. The location is excellent - just a 5 minute walk from the sandunes of Maspalomas. Entertainment team very enthusiastic. Would recommend this hotel.
