This is a good basic set of bungalows to use as a base. It is within a half hour walk to Playa del inglese and about an hour to Maspalomas beach front due to the convoluted route.
They charge 6 euros a day for internet but you can use free wifi in local bars as i did. There is a telly with a pay slot in the room but i didnt use the telly as i can watch telly at home!
The gardens are nice and immaculate, the pool looked great but didnt use as too busy out and about. The staff are helpful apart from a miserable old man in reception at night who jabbered on in spanish when i asked for the key i had left at reception when i returned at about 11am! He was moaning away but i took no notice and he had to walk at least 6 feet from the comfy chair he was on to pass me the key! The breakfasts are good and basic and thats it really. All i can say is its a good basic place.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back can be noisy as next to main road but with door shut you cant hear it.

Although Gran Canaria has a great atmosphere and the sun is out until about 9pm, Capri Bungalows are awful.

We went as a group of 3 friends on the self catering programme; firstly they do not supply beds for all three people. There were two beds on the first floor of the bungalow and a sofa which was tiny on the ground floor.

The first night we arrived we were very kindly greeted by giant COCKROACHES! These cockroaches we about the size of their kitchen titles, this is I can guarantee anyone as they were very calmly walking up and down the kitchen tiles. They were everywhere: the sofa, the bedroom and the toilet. After complaining to the staff in the morning they attempted to divert the conversation and assure us the housekeeper was going to clean the bungalow.

Housekeeping was kept to a minimum, they cleaned the floor, left clean towels (which were not enough for all 3 of us) and the housekeeper took any rubbish and left toilet rolls. We had to purchase our own bleach to clean the toilet to a decent standard.

They DO NOT PROVIDE ANYTHING, you would expect at least a kettle or a TV, it turns out that if you need a kettle you need to pay a weekly fee and tv is paid into a coin machine. WIFI is provided but only if you pay, it's about 5 euros for one day and only one device can be used for each purchase. They have about 3 computers which anyone use but these are outdated and most content cannot be access because of this.

The small restaurant has great ice creams, drink and the food depends on what you buy, we bought a small pizza per person which was really good but the lasagne was cooked from frozen and was still frozen in the middle.

The pool is about the only thing which saves the whole stay, it is a communal pool which is cleaned daily the only down side was that at 7pm the pool would close. In the morning they would clean the pool and the pool area.

There were quite a few families on site, however I do not understand how anyone could allow their children to in such a bad environment.

GRAN CANARIA is great, the night life is absolutely amazing even if you hang out at the open plan bars you are still guaranteed great customer service and great drinks.

Attractions are also good, there's the zoo, water park, kart racing, dolphin sighting, safari tours and great beaches. On the whole Gran Canaria is good place to visit just don't go to Capri, although there some good reviews it is not worth taking the chance of having to live with cockroaches for a week or two.

Room Tip: The second block straight from the reception is the one affected by cockroaches (for certain).

Ryanair flight - no probs lovely attendents and 25 mins early???????
Booked accom thro Alpharooms and for the 1st time booked transfers as well
Transfers coming and going easy peasy
Now Capri bungalows - well was a bit aprehensive - as it turns out was very surprised. Yes they are a bit tired and you have to hire a kettle So what you can buy one in PR for €15 and use it every time you go away
reception staff one and all were so helpful and friendly. Had a little problem with shower which i mentioned in the morning - low and behold maintenance fixed it by the afternoon!!!!
Next peeps i met were housekeeping AMAZING even washed up crockery. Called every day
THEN we go to the restuarant staff now they totally made the holiday. I've seldom came across such lovely people (and i'm an hotelier).
Overall just cannot find any major fault with this place. Would strongly recommend for singles (myself) couples or families
Thank you Capri had a lovely 2 week stay

We enjoyed our stay at these apartments. No noise, no louts, no loud children, just a relaxing experience in a clean and quiet venue. There was a little bit of noise from the road but this can be avoided if you stay in a different part of the complex. It has its own restaurant with nice meals, reasonably priced and its own shop too, selling most things you could need during your stay. If you like cats, then great... as a few live nearby and are quite friendly. If staying in Maspalomas again, we would be sure to stay here again.

Well you certainly get what you pay for !. If it's just a BASE, then it's fine.
This was certainly what I was looking for. Because it's very family orientated, I had no intention of staying around the pool and using the complex's facilities.
The apartment or duplex floorplan, means you get a front garden or terrace, small lounge area & Kitchen. Basis Kitchen,..if you want a toaster, kettle etc...you have to hire them.....which in itself is ludicrous.
1St floor, up some stairs, which after a few drinks...you have to be careful.....basic bathroom,,,not very clean....bedroom 2 single beds.....much prefer a double.

OVERALL....wouldnt stay again.....

Friendly staff......

Stayed at the Capri Apartments for the second time as we already had been on holiday to Cuba this year, just wanted something cheap and cheerful, was very quiet when we went but that was fine with us, the girls had the pool to themselves, Restaurant was great as before and it was nice to be remembered from our last visit.
Will go back again and would recommend, we are going to GC again this month,but we are going to stay at Turbo Club that is across the road, only reason being we wanted to try all-inc as did spend quite a lot on food and drinks , but we will e calling in to Capri for Andras great omelet, so see you soon Capri

This is a one star complex!!! Basic and tired but a bargain so you can't really complain at all. It's your holiday, treat yourself and spend a little more on the accommodation and you won't have any need to moan when you go home.
Saying that I won't be negative, I wanted a quiet complex, I come here at least twice a year and that's what I got. It was the cheapest in maspalomas due to the last minute flight being a fortune.
