The hotel was very friendly, very clean and comfortable. Our suite was spacious and the dining room relaxing. There were some limitations on the hot breakfast options (as others have mentioned) but there was plenty of choice on the other options so one could not reasonably go without. Dinner was fine and the Bermejo Canarian wine was excellent! The hotel... More

My husband & I took our 2 children (13 & 9) to this hotel back in July 2011 for 2 weeks. We had a 2 bedroomed apartment looking over the pool area. The hotel was really nice, clean and what you would expect from a Spanish hotel in Gran Canaria. The comments previously regarding the Dutch is true, unfortunately! I... More

Our apartment was on ground floor and although patio was a bit compared to others it was not a problem for us as we spent most of our time by the pool.There are plenty of restaurants etc within a short walk of...
