HOTEL: Stayed here in the October school holidays. This was our first time to Gran Canaria. On our arrival, which ended up being 4am due to delays at Gatwick, we were quickly booked in at reception by a nice chap, got to our room and fell into bed. When we woke up, we realised what a really nice room we had. Plenty of room. Very clean. A nice little balcony overlooking one of the pools. The bathroom was big and that too very clean. We were on the 2nd floor.
FOOD: Never experienced this before but we had to queue to get into Breakfast and Dinner.
(we were half board) I was not over impressed with the food but I think that was because we were there on probably one of the busiest weeks. The restaurant was packed solid and we had to wait for tables to become available. There was plenty of food to choose from, from cereal to cheese to cooked breakfast, but I just was not over keen on how it was layed out. By the time I got back to the table with my eggs and bacon, they were cold. Again the same thing at Dinner.
HOTEL SURROUNDING: Lots of swimming pools to choose from, but my god you had to get up early to sit where you wanted. There was a pool that had a man made beach. It was more like cat litter but really nice and clean. I am afraid to say that by the end of the week I got fed up of not being able to sit round the pool and did something I have never had to do or like doing, but I had to get up early and put my towel on a sunbed then go for breakfast.
All in all, I we had a really good week. It is about a 20 minute walk into town. Lots of shops and nice designer shops to look round. A taxi back to the Hotel was only about 3 euros.
Also just to say, although we went in the holidays, we did not experience kids running up and down the corridors as other reviews have mentioned. We will go back to Maspolomas Princess one day to this Hotel as it was lovely, but just not in the school holidays!!!
