3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The hotel is a very nice historic building, beautifully old-fashioned, nicely decorated for Christmas and the New Year. However, at this busy time the outdoor pool was overcrowded - there was a shortage of beds and towels if you came in the afternoon. The indoor pool could only be used for an extra charge for hotel guests (€10), which the... More

It’s the worst 5 star hotel I have come across in my 30 years of travel. The A/C setting had to me brought to ZERO in order to get the room a bit cooler. This was the suggestion of the Service Engineer. We could smell very strongly the Cigar smoke in our room coming from adjoining room. As explained by... More

This hotel is absolutely incredible. Me and my boyfriend came here for 6 nights for our first holiday. Weather here cloudy in the morning but got to highs of 36 degrees C by lunchtime. We travelled to Puerto Rico by bus which took an hour and we did Jet Ski, parasailing and kayaks. Las playa des canteras (I think) is... More

We just returned from our holiday in Las Palmas. Hotel Santa Catalina was exactly what we needed - a classy hotel, with so much personality and character, where you feel most welcome. It is an oasis amids all the common hotels, with all the facilities you need. Yes, it might need some updates - better internet connection or a parking... More

Ancient style, a little extra care for the building would be nice. Great spa, nice swimming pool. Not all the staff members speak English, but that's also charming. Excellent breakfast, clean rooms. The view was a little disappointing, mainly an ugly roof and some pipes. Next time we will book a room at the front.

They have a photo of their indoor pool as a profile photo.. Only when you get here do they tell you that it will cost you €9 to use it.. The wifi is terrible but they are happy to upgrade for €6 a day and even then it is rubbish.. I'm sure many years ago it was a luxury hotel... More

5 stars ? I don't think so, well not where I come from. The hotel was built a long time ago, but they are missing a trick here, this place could be so much better with a little modernisation. Wifi is only half a mb, you have to pay for more bandwidth and can only connect 2 devices at a... More
