“Great stay well worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in may for pride had an amazing time the hotel was spotless pools were spotless food was buffet for dinner but was lovely an lots of choice lunch was off the pool bar menu was lovely drinks are only 11-11 and only selected (4) cocktails off a list of 15 but all spirits an mixers are inclusive. The only thing that let it down was the entertainment so we went out to find entertainment. Had a great overall stay an would defo stay again

This is our third visit to Canary Garden Club. This time we chose to go all inclusive, what a wise decision! The food was comparable to that of a Michelin starred restaurant, freshly prepared daily by a fabulous head Chef and team. I must mention the waiting staff who work at the speed of light, always with a smile and impeccable manners, you really couldn't ask for better service.
The bungalows are as well maintained as ever and the grounds and swimming pools are kept in top condition by staff who obviously take pride in their work. We were, as always accompanied by son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren who enjoyed all the facilities in equal measure.
It is our deepest wish that this truly magnificent resort remains the way it is and is not spoiled by people who would be better off on an 18-30.
Canary Garden Club has a low key sophistication about it that makes people feel special, I know this to be true as we have chatted to many guests who agree with this.
When it was time to leave, which was at 3am in the morning, we were given an early morning call and the offer of breakfast to see us on our way, how good is that!
To sum up, I would say, if it's a little sophistication and bags of relaxation that's top of your list, then look no further, it's all here in abundance.
Thank you all at Canary Garden Club for being just great, we'll be back!!!

Cannot praise the Canary Garden Club Enough. The whole place was spotless, OK, the Bungalows were small, but for a holiday perfect! We were all inclusive, and the food was possibly the best we have had on European All Inclusive. The only Gripe, and this is not the Canary Garden Club’s fault, is that a Drunken Glaswegian tried to break into our bungalow, and even after trying to reason with him, he continued to swear at us and frightened my wife and daughters. Even worse, he apologized to everyone the next day…. Apart from us! However, apart from that, a delightful place, if you want a laid back holiday.

Just returned from the Canary Garden Club
I can only repeat the reviews already posted - Brilliant. Approx 25 mins from airport. We arrived around 10.30 pm where we were greeted by the nicest staff you could wish for. We went to the Bungalow to drop off the luggage & were invited back for a complimentary meal & drinks due to having a late flight missing the restaurant. Bungalow was ample size for 2 of us & spotless, light & bright throughout. Aircon & safe are not free but we didn't need them. Table, chairs & 2 sunbeds provided on your private terrace (great if you want privacy). Beds firm but comfy, tv if you need it. 2 adult & 1 childrens pools with free sunloungers & parasols, poolside showers & spotless toilets. The grounds, bungalows, pool areas, etc were perfectly maintained & we could not fault them. The whole place feels safe, peaceful & relaxing with guests having a sensible relaxed attitude, friendly with no hassle, very laid back. Very low key on entertainment on a night time so we went out to the sea front. Great location, approx. 3km. from Playa Del Ingles & Maspolomas beach. Nice steady walks & only 3 - 4 euros for a taxi. Bus stops are mainly in the actual towns but the buses are great & the fares are cheap (eg. Maspolomas to Mogen 2.5 euros)
Can't say anything more, No frills but plenty relaxation - Great. We will Definitely be returning in the future.

Room Tip: We had a west facing Bungalow so you have the sun on the terrace longer at night. Also the bungalows...

what a delightful place the staff go above and beyond there duty especially Angela (front desk) and Emmay waiter. Bungalows are newly refurbished. absolutely clean and food in the resturant is very good. We had to vacate early due to family illness the staff helped me book flights and arranged every thing. Thanks to all at Canary garden club

Room Tip: We had 13/4 unlucky for some but furthest from the pool but ultimately peaceful

Lovely clean hotel. Staff fantastic food very nice. Great place to relax, but you need to go out for entertainment. The bungalow was nice and private. the furniture was nice and the beds were really comfortable. every bungalow has its own sun loungers so you dont need to sit round the pool.Would definitely go again.

We've stayed here many times before and I have to say it is still as fantastic as ever. I've never stayed anywhere so clean! We've just returned from a 10 day stay and have again found the canary Garden Club to be of fantastic quality. All of the staff from the helpful and welcoming people on reception to the cleaning staff are great. Always happy to help and cheerful - which sadly isn't always the case in Spanish hotels and complexes. The bungalows are spotlessly clean and the beds seem to have been replaced since our last stay a few months ago as they were very comfy and superior to most other matresses we've encountered elsewhere. They also seems to have all been fitted with a microwave as well. The only slight criticism we would have is that there is no electric kettle in the bungalow and you have to boil water in the little stove kettle - which isn't necessarily a major issue - just a small thing really. Also there is no toaster. You can hire one for around €12 for 7 days or €18 for 14 days. However there are a few toasters that previous guests have left (including ourselves) that they will try to loan you if one is available rather than calling their rental supplier - for which you will need to pay the above charges. We were not charged for the toaster we had on loan so I can only assume that this is par for the course.....

The bungalow complex is very quiet, mostly accommodating older guests. Although myself and my partner are aged 43 and 58 we really still appreciated that you were able to get a good nights sleep or be able to relax in the grounds or by the pool without hoards of noisy party people!

We've stayed in many other bungalow complexes in Spain and Gran Canaria and Canary Garden Club is head and shoulders above them all in terms of quality, value for money, enjoyment of stay, customer service and wonderful staff. We're going back for another stay in October and cannot wait.

Also worth taking a walk down to Melonaras which is a 30 minute gentle stroll away. Tends to be the higher end of shops and restaurants if you want to get away from the trinket shops, all-you-can-eat chinese restaurants and gays bars of the Yumbo Centre.

We hired a car for the time we were there but taking a taxi is very cheep if you're going from maspalomas to say the Yumbo Centre .... Around €3. Or a 30 minute stroll - which is okay if it's cool - not so nice in 33c searing heat!

Thank you guys for another great stay!!
