This hotel is simply fantastic and we cannot recommend it highly enough.
The staff are brilliant and the whole place is very clean and comfortable.
The service at the main restaurant and pool bar are very good and the menus have daily specials although some dishes have to be ordered the previous day. Paella wasn't on the menu but we ordered and received a stunningly good one the following day for lunch. Breakfast is a matter of too much choice or too small an appetite !
The room was airy and spacious with quiet air conditioning that didn't freeze you but kept it nice and cool. The standard of maid service was truly excellent with a fruit bowl topped up and bottled water replaced daily.
The gardens around the complex are delightful and beautifully landscaped. The pool too is extremely clean and inviting.
The hotel is situated near to the beach and next to a sister 5* hotel which can also be used. The walking is fairly level with a wide promenade running alongside the sea with numerous cafe's/bars/shops etc.
Beware what the guidebooks say about the temperature being an average of 25C (this maybe taken at Las Palmas) as when we were there (end of June 2011) the temperatures averaged 34 degrees with a high of 39C.
The only downside to the whole holiday was travelling on Thomson Airways. They are absolutely terrible! Although if you fancy travelling in what must be the smallest possible spacing of seats allowed - with your knees around your ears, feel free to try them! Unfortunately the choice of airline flying to Gran Canaria from the UK is very limited - however it is worth it all when you stay at this hotel
