“Duna Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

This was a lovely place to stay. There was loads of room around the pool, the pool itself was huge and had a warm section as well as the usual pool, the apartment was basic but contained everything we needed. The bar was open for breakfasts and lunch as well as the restaurant, and the buffet breakfast was only 7 euros for as much as you wanted, which was ideal! the bar served pizzas until late which was handy on our first night! the apartments are near to playa del ingles as well as meloneras, only a 5 euro taxi ride to each or 1 euro on the bus! the people were lovely and was quiet at night times. We were really pleased with our accomodation and thought it was fantastic value for money.

Room Tip: our room was number 6, round the back by the tennis courts which was very quiet.

We found the bungalow itself nice and generally clean. It was cleaned nearly every day and towels were changed regularly. The cleaner was always polite and non intrusive. If you are going on holiday to go to the beach and The Yumbo then you will need to be prepared for either a 40 minute walk or to pay for a taxi (about €4). We hadn't really realised how far away the bungalows were from everything but we managed. We walked for the first few days but got taxis after that. The other thing to be mindful of is that the front door is locked at midnight. To gain entry after this time you have to ring two door bells and wait for someone to let us in. This was never really a problem but it did make us feel a little awkward getting someone to open the door for us at 3am. We also had to wait several minutes on one occasion which did make us a bit worried! The little shop on site is handy and good for fresh croissants in the morning. The outer ring of bungalows is best because it is away from the pool area and bar which tends to play loud 90s music in the afternoon.

Our bungalow 95 was close to reception and the outer car park, this was the problem... Woken by the bin men, woken by people returning at night and by cars pulling in and out of car park. Avoid rooms 96 - 85. Noisy, I did ask to move but the man behind reception wouldn't accommodate and told me the youngsters would be gone by Easter Monday. It wasn't really them that was the problem. Part from this we were hardly there, if was what we paid for, basic clean accommodation. And they try and charge you for any extra's like kettles etc. I would stay here again if I had a room choice. You can't really mark them down as it's so cheap, location is ok, easy to get a cab into resorts.

its 2 keys,its cheap and its off the beaten track but its a great place,lovely reception with the lady so helpful and polite,our apartement 109 was fine and basic ,beds made almost every day ,cleaned and fresh towels,kitchen equipment a little dated,people moan about having to rent kettles etc but i just boil water,microwave and coffee filter machine all present.
the pools were great,big pool slightly cool but normal for canaries,clean and refreshing a,warmpool and two baby pools,ample poolside area and gardens /park all clean and nice,loads of sunbeds.very quiet for our first week in spring break 2nd week more spanish arrived for their hols.
restaurant was fine,smiling staff,food ok and you could take away til 12pm.onsite shop not overly expensive.
a long way out is my only fault.you can get a cab right outside anywhere for 5 e but its a trek down to faro beach and its not worth the saving getting a bus unless youre alone
.holiday world[15 mins walk] terrific value 20e you could ride the fair all night,cracking steak restauarant upstairs while kids play in soft play.
its acheap 2 key complex but safe for minors,clean and with great pools.cant fault it for the money,my tin opener didnt work and the bed was a bit narrow for my ample frame but hey who cares.

Room Tip: its like an ampitheatre,low apartments are round the pool,top ones overlook it all but are stepped b...

I booked these apartments after looking at several apartment blocks in the same area of Maspalomas. i have stayed in gran Canaria on two other occasions and this was the nicest so far !!!
The apartments were clean, well maintained and had all you needed for a comfortable stay (although the interior paint was a funky colour !).
The pool area was lovely, clean and well maintained. All the staff were polite and helpful. We were self catering and travelled about quite a bit and found we were ideally in between the delightful maspalomas/melonaras and playa del ingles either a 20-30 min stroll or a 5 min taxi ride for 4euros. there is also a bus to both for 1 euro each way.
we had a fab time and will return.

Family of 5 and had an absolute ball, lovely place an staff were all fantastic .. Really can't fault anything but one thing and that being entertainment the lack of it! But this did not ruin our holiday infact we would have been lucky to fit it in anyway. Pool and pool area were kept to a high standard of cleanliness an there's plenty of lounging space and plenty Of sun loungers I would defiantly return and defiantly recommend lovely little bungalows and still suffering from the holiday blues :( as for the reviews of it being far out don't get me wrong there's a gd wee walk to get places but we managed with 6year old 5year old and a 3 year old we went walking everyday so not as bad as some reviews make out. Really pleasant stay and hope to return one day :) ....

We stayed here from the 1st until 9th of april. All of the staff were lovely and were always jokung around and talking to everyone, very attentive amd tried hard with their english.
The food was simple but tastey! Pizza, chicken, bolognese etc, it was brought out promptly and hot everytime and never had any complaints, we ate there everyday as it was so cheap and tastey!
The room was cleaned everyday, it was simple and comfy, so if you want luxury it wont be suitable our only complaint has to be all of the ants everywhere!! But that can't be helped :)
Location was okay, a little out the way and I struggle to walk far so we took the bus or taxi. 40 minutes walk to maspalomas though. The buses were fab, going to playa de ingles and maspalomas everyday at €2 return. And a taxi was about €5 to playa or maspalomas.
Great chilled out cheap week overall :)
