“A decent budget stay for a decent price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We picked Capri as we wanted as cheap as we could get (but not in a hotel building, prefer bungalow/villa), as we didn't plan on spending much time in our accommodation. We expected very basic and we were pleasantly surprised. Bungalow (2story) was lovely with a gorgeous little garden filled with flowers. Clean, with basic kitchen utensils. Maid came in every 2 days and cleaned and restocked bin bags and toilet rolls. Facilities- good restaurant, friendly and nice food, pool- we didn't use but looked nice, plenty of sunbeds. Capri supermarket was great, fresh fruit, veg, bread etc.Internet- No free Wifi which was a nice break from the internet for us, there was a paid 'hotels wifi' you could pay to log into if desperate or alternatively there were computers in reception/information room. Location- fine for us as we didn't want to be in resort center, public bus stop just few minutes away, location is a bit far out for those who want the resort, restaurants, pubs etc. There are a few restaurants and bars in nearby area, plus holiday world (bowling, arcades, fairground). Main road runs on one side of Capri so there is some road noise, but we found we were still able to cross it as not too busy, its not suitable for families to cross though, there is an underpass about 5-10 minutes walk. Taxis only 5 euros to centre (Masp. Pl Ingles, Melonaras) and GC buses are great. We had only 1 complaint for the Capri and that was the shower, the water pressure was almost non existent and we had only a dribble to try and shower under, Not sure if all rooms were like this or only A34. This was the only let down to an otherwise perfect stay at Capri.

Room Tip: Pay 1-2* then expect 1-2*- do not expect Hilton standards, Capri is perfect for the cost.

ive done a review on this property before but feel I need to update ,these duplex bungalows now well overdue for refurb ,to be honest they are so basic hardly any kitchen equipment and you do have to rent a kettle and toaster which can be expensive added to you holday cost also have to pay for key to the safe.ive always loved these bungalows but we stayed here for 10 nights in dec and was glad to leave .if they took as much care of the bungalows as they do of the gardens then they would be perfect !but this time the cleaning staff couldn't even be bothered to clean them properly ,the bed linen is tired and dated as are the towels and there is hardly any kitchen equipment ,no English channels on tv and you also have to pay for tv.the staff here are lovely and they try there best to help with anything ,but it doesn't compensate for the delapetated bungalows to be fair they are only cheap but by the time you have paid for toaster kettle safe and tv ,you may as well pay the exta for better accom,the pool area and the gardens are lovely and there is a courtesy bus to take you to the beach!

Room Tip: try and get a bungalow overlooking the pool area.

We found everything we needed. Clean bed, kitchen annex, hot water.

The only problem was a very unkind lady at the reception desk.
We have even been lied to when there was a problem with hot water supply. We have been assured by her that the pressure is enough so that we can take a shower, when at the very same moment the plumber was explaining to her in Spanish, that is was impossible. Not sure why she was lying...
Tip: learn a bit Spanish before you visit, as we did.

Room Tip: Avoid the 'B' section, which is right next to a very busy road. Not a nice view, and loud.

A short, cheap break should really only need two things - price and location - and Capri has both. Why is it worthy of only 2/5 in that case? Mainly because in Maspalomas and Playa there is so much choice that you should only end up here if everywhere else (and I so mean pretty much everywhere) is booked, or you do a lucky dip with the travel company. There's nothing irredeemable about Capri's problems - nothing that a determined owner/manager willing to put in a bit of effort and some cash couldn't fix. Unfortunately that seems to be lacking and it's got an air of laziness and complacency. It's tired and tiresome. You'll be fine if price is your main, no, only, consideration and you can put up with the dribbly plumbing, weedy wifi and bed linen that was cut up from tents used in the Spanish civil war. But do expect also to be (over)charged for everything - from the inevitable onsite supermercado to the 'extras' such as a kettle. When was a kettle 'extra' in self-catering?? This might even be bearable if the staff were a mite less charmless. There are one or two exceptions but in most cases they lacked communication skills (eg a smile) let alone any rudimentary customer care. Special mention to Francisco Franco in the bar, whose uniform had clearly inflated his ego. That said we had a blast - mainly by declaring UDI thanks to a hire car and the massed gay bars and beaches that claimed most of our attention. But there are plenty of alternatives in the same price bracket within a five minute radius, and this is budget Spanish tourism at its lowest ebb. Avoid, avoid!!

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
