Travelled here as a family for 2 weeks in July 2016. Bungalow was beautiful and spacious, grounds well maintained, staff pleasant. However, the entertainment was very disappointing. New pool opened some time in the last year and all kids entertainment moved to here, with a lot of it water based. Pool is all one depth and not suitable for smaller... More

I've visited this hotel twice and both times were memorable. The staff were incredibly nice, the food was good and so was the accommodation. It's nicely situated on the Avenida de Tirajana at the Playa del Ingles and takes approx a 10-15 minutes drive to the beach.

Animation team were great and worked very hard to entertain the children and adults! Hotel room was great but spare beds in the living room were hard as a rock!!! Also a... More

I wont repeat all the other reviews and will just outline a few other items which might not be very obvious. If you have a rental car, parking is free. This is a nice surprise. Enough parkingspace and only a small deposit for the key to the entrance. 👍 There are a lot of Dutch people here, so if you... More

Always good but sometimes the staff is getting doozy; especially in high season when it is busy. A fresh wind/ boost in the restaurant and lounge bar would be nice. Taking all the successes from the past for nomal/granted. Staying on top in harder than getting there!

Good food, friendly staff, nice rooms and three poolareas to choose from. An adult relaxpool was nice when you dont want kids playing around. Supermarket was very nice and good price too. Wifi worked well all week.

Loved this hotel I just would like if there was more Irish people staying here as it was mostly German people who have been coming for years and they seem to have taken over. Other than that had a great holiday and thinking about returning next year😎

Just back from Sol Barbacan flight times aren't the best for Gran Canaria but great holiday anyway. The hotel itself was at least 5 star, really good quality, worth the money. Buffet could have been more appealing to children, not much a child could really enjoy.. Room is good although if you get a higher level of room {floor 3... More
