Me & my partner stayed here for 9nights, 21st May 2013. After reading many mixed reviews, i was lets say.. skeptical. Airport..transfer etc.. fine!.. Booked with OnTheBeach. When we arrived, the hotel looks fresh from the outside, and the reception looked immaculate too!
We were allocated bungalow 92, which faced the front of the hotel (ill explain later), the bungalows are clean and adequate. You have your own sunloungers & table and chairs which is great. Inside the bungalow needs updating, the deco pink/yellow/green walls is awful.. but its all ok! taste i suppose.
Request a room away from the front of the hotel.. as in the early morning the bin men are VERY loud, and you need to keep your window open due to heat.. so stay away from there.
Cleaners are brilliant, we had our towels changed more than needed and they always cleaned the floor/kitchen etc too. No double beds, only twin, although we re-arranged ours together! No one minded. The sun terrace in front of your bungalow is a great sun trap.
The hotel complex i would rate a good 3/4 star, the pool is big, smaller pool for kiddies and PLENTY of sunloungers! We did find it quiet but realised it was due to the time of year, the restaurant at the hotel is lovely! Lasagna is very tasty! and all pretty much priced as you would pay away from the hotel. You can even order takeaway food to your bungalow for same price.
The bar was also ok, probably a little cheaper than other places, although we only went there once, it was a tad to quite.. i can not comment on how this would be in peak season.
The hotel is a little out of the way but not as bad as a lot of reviews make out, as long as you know the shortcut! Closest supermarket a meer 10 min stroll! .. come out of hotel go straight ahead, turn left.. then on the right you will see a dry patch of unbuilt land.. cross over and walk right across it!.. you end up on the roundabout right opposite he supermarket and saves time walking to playa del ingles too!
Weather was brill!.. cant complain..
Overall i don't think you can go wrong with this hotel, shame the bungalows are outdated, as the rest of the hotel really is pretty good =). Taxi's are always around, no matter what time it is, it never cost us more than 4 euros 20, to go to and back from playa del ingles and maspalomas. although we managed to walk them a few times.
Would we return?.. Probably.
