This place has lots of positives the main one being it's location it's only a 5 minute wallk to the Yumbo and to the start of the dunes. The supermarket is very close by as well.

Travelled and stayed here in January 2013. I looked at the comments about the doors. Our doors did close, with a little effort, but we didn't experience any issues with crime. They're not quite as close to the Yumbo as they say, but only a 10 minute walk. The bungalows themselves, were great, as was the manager looking after the...

I stayed here end of October 2012. I'll start with the positives. Its in a good location beside Cita centre, you can get the bus from the airport which drops you off at the top of the street for 3 euro, so very handy to get to. It's also quite close to the beach, the apartments themselves are modern and...

I stayed in this resort last week, it's very different to most other Gran Canaria resorts in it's modern styling and finish, the resort has a real luxury feel to it. The rooms are modern, spacious and very clean. The location is great, close to both the beach and the shops (Yumbo, Cita etc) I will certainly be staying here...

I am the CEO of Amro Worldwide - a British gay & lesbian travel specialist. I stayed in Placida Mar last weekend to experience what it was like as a new gay resort. Two things stick in mind Firstly the external appearance of the resort clad in a grey tile looks much more upmarket than the traditional white washed or...

I stayed at this small development of nine single story apartments in October 2010. The location is excellent, 5 minutes from the Yumbo shopping centre and two minutes from the beech boardwalk. The apartment was very clean with a tidy layout. Small development recently refurbished. Quiet and suitable for the independent traveller. Nice pool and surrounds to relax. Enough beds...

“Don't choose room 1 as it's close to the main entrance which is quite noisy when closed.”

“Ask for a room closer to reception - the ones closer to the entrance are more prone to be broken in to.”
