We had two separate stays here. First one without any worries and the second under a lockdown because of Covid-19. The pluses were, it is a large spacious hotel with a 20 minute walk to town and a local beach 10 minutes away, we had "all inclusive" with various bars situated within the hotel. Breakfast, lunch and evening dinner were good (all buffet style) with plenty of choice. Staff were efficient and friendly. The downside and I have experienced this before at other establishments, the beds and bedding were not good. Bed mattresses were uncomfortable and the pillows lacked any proper filling. The rooms were kept clean and we could receive English channels, which on our lockdown stay was priceless. We were made to pay for wifi in our rooms (although rules were relaxed on our 2nd stay, we did receive free wifi in the room), poolside the wifi is free anyway and to pay for a room safe. Our first stay room overlooked private apartments and with curtains drawn felt very exposed, no net curtain or blind, so we had to virtually keep curtains drawn. Both our rooms had a balcony. On our latter stay the hotel began to shut down, sun beds removed from the pool, then tables and chairs taken away to discourage outside socialising which just pushed the dimishing guests inside. The whole process was to drive you back to your room. Of course that isn't the fault of the hotel management they were obeying governmental orders. Overall I was happy with our normal stay and will not judge it on its enforced rules. I do feel sorry for the staff who had to portray a happy demeanour while knowing, as from this coming Tuesday, their jobs disappear.

We had an excellent holiday at the Gran Turquesa. I am sure you will enjoy yours but there are a few things you should know. There is a huge variety of food on offer but if you want a high quality meal cooked to order then you will need to find a local restaurant. I usually found something I liked but to be honest it got a bit tedious towards the end of our week long stay. The canarian potatoes are always a favourite with me and there plenty of green and red mojo to go with it. The was a huge variety of bread all of which was wonderful. The turquesa is a very large hotel. Food is not allowed out of the restaurant so you might find yourself with a long walk just to get a cup of coffee. Renting a kettle is 2 euros a day. I tried 3 different brands of bottled water but I couldnt find one that didn’t taste awful when boiled. Later I discovered that the problem was due to staff cleaning out the kettle with cleaning fluid. There are a few small flights of steps in the hotel which cannot be avoided but overall I think those with limited mobility will have no difficulty. There is a very limited number of electrical sockets in the rooms which makes life difficult if you want to boil a kettle or charge up your devices. Top tip. Bring at least one euro adapter and a multi gang socket. Cpap users can borrow an extension cable from reception for no charge other than a deposit. Beware of the ATMs in the hotel! The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely room on the corner with a sea view. The sea is about 100 meters away down a slope.

The hotel is very clean, Staff are very friendly. The food was perfectly acceptable with good variety of choice for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Nice walk into the town centre by the coast in about 15 minutes. The rooms probably could do with a refurbishment but were kept spotless by the housekeeping staff. Nightly entertainment. Some very cheap but lovely cafe/bars directly across the road from the hotel. Really enjoyed our stay.

Lovely hotel. Spotlessly clean and gorgeous food. Very short walk from lovely promenade and a short walk to Loro Park. Also a lovely walk into town during the day along the coast. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Rooms were shabby, bedding was substandard, and all inclusive buffet was so bad we had to eat out nightly! We were so disappointed by almost all aspects of service including rude staff. Please save yourself the trouble and don’t ruin a Canary Island vacation with a stay at the hotel.
