I will be honest, this place is not for everyone but they are definitely worth more then the official 1 star rating. Lets start with the basics, its clean, well run, a great design and has very good facilities. The bungalows are in clusters of four, facing out from each other with your own patio. Some have a better location than others but all are in private well kept gardens. They have been refurbished with a lovely walk in double shower. You get a basic kitchenette area with no oven, some limited kitchen utensils, if you need more ask at reception, they are very friendly. The TV is a flat screen and has loads of free channels - handy for a early night in with a bottle of wine.
They are on the small side but bigger than a standard double hotel room. The complex feels safe and secure, its staffed 24 hours and although noisy at times, the pools are clean and there is a bar and restaurant on site. Another plus is free wifi in reception, a cash machine, small shop and luggage store for early check out. Location wise its a 3.75 euro taxi ride (4 people) to the town, a bit more to the beach. There is twice daily free bus to the beach make use of it although its a longish but flat walk to the beach, about 20 to 30 mins depending on how fast you walk.
The local area is mainly more accommodation but if you do your research there is a small theme park, shopping centre and places to eat within easy walking distance. The faro 2 shopping centre is only worth a night time visit as its run down and empty but the El Nueblo steak house is worth eating at. The supermarket at Faro 2 is cheaper than the on site shop but get a taxi into San Fernando and the Spar Supermarket if you want cheaper prices and more choice.
I would recommend hiring a car, seek out the Tui Auto Reisen Shop in Playa Des Ingles, ask for directions, its well priced and you get the reassurance of a big name and support if anything goes wrong. Remember to check the tyres for wear and pay the 3 euros a day FULL insurance, its worth it.
Get out and about, go inland up the mountains, fabulous views of the island, do visit Peurto Morgan in the west and remember the beach at Maspalomas is stunning but is does have family, nudist and gay areas- so take dark sunglasses!
The Yumbo Centre is worth a visit or two, its quiet until around 10.30 - 11pm at night then it can be very loud but fun. If you need to spoil yourselves get a taxi to Melonores, its a very up market flash, luxury, resort area with prices and shops to match. Pick your evening meal eatery carefully, watch the prices and you can have a real special night out. Lots to see and do, street entertainment, this is where the expensive hotels are located.
i have been to club maspalomas 1 several times now, they are planning to add air con by next year, book in to the club maspalomas 2 (same resort) if you want air con now! The only down side is the noise from families and kids around the pool, that said its great value for money and i will be going back next year!
