Firstly don't expect a 5 star hotel in the Canaries to offer the same level of service as New York / London , thats simply unrealistic , 5 star hotels in Canaries are the equivalent of 4 star elsewhere . That said the hotel and grounds / pool areas were beautiful , 5 seperate pools ranging from enormous to standard size , loads of sun beds even the during kids holiday period . The hotel is designed in the style of a spanish village with 'blocks' all different sizes / colour/design however all connected by corridors to the rear of the bulidings . We booked a standard room ( I called prior to arrival to request a quiet room) and we were allocated a top floor room in E block with great views over the hotel and sea so don't bother paying extra for a SV room . Room was very nice with seperate dressing room and shower , noise was not a problem . Staff were very friendly . Now the negatives , the hotel was a maze , we were still getting lost after a week , lifts / stairs take u to various boiler rooms / dead ends, designed by a lunatic . Breakfast was no more then OK with the restaurant dark and gloomy . Minor issue was that bizarely there are no drawers in the hotel room so nowhere to store personal stuff . Some balconys lack privacy while others are closed in . There was NO drinks service around the pool so everytime you wanted a drink u had to walk miles to the one bar serving all pools , very odd given the drinks mark up that they don't offer a drinks service . They seemed to do everything possible to stop people using the Main Pool restaurant by blocking all entrances bar one , Entertainment was the normal mediocre . If u turn right along the prominade a 15 min walk gets u to a few bars / restaurants , if u turn left a 15 min walk get you to the main 'faro' centre with loads of decent restaurants , the '19th hole' does a very good ' irish stew' .That said its a very good hotel and u won't go far wrong if you choose it for your holidays however on balance i think i prefered the sister hotel nearer the light house .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Lopesan Villa del Conde Resort & Thalasso is excellently situated on the sea front on the south part of Gran Canaria, very close to Meloneras beach (300m) and just a few minutes on foot to the lighthouse and the dunes of Maspalomas Nature Preserve (800m). The 56,340m2, 5 star hotel construction reflects some of the most common characteristics from the canary Island traditional architecture and presents a similar structure to that of a welcoming town on the island, with a central square, gardens and charming stately homes with hanging wooden balconies. The spectacular reception is an authentic adaptation of one of the oldest churches on Gran Canaria, with two maintowers, a bell tower and central dome. ... more less
