4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

the rooms were great size and the location was bang on for a nice location close to the beach, restaturant, public transport and the Yumbo.

Its quiet enough in the area to relax but also close enough to be a 5-10 min walk from the action.

i really enjoyed to large pool, allocated deck chairs and free WIFI throughout the complex. Its secured by gates so no riff-raff allowed.

I wlll definetly go back !!

Room Tip: the 2 bedroom bungalow was only £5 more expensive than the one bed. With the 2 Bed, you could easliy...

Just returned from 14 days in Gran Canaria and this is the 5th time we have stayed at the Dona Rosa - yet again I can't really add anything else to the other good reviews this place has. Attracts a quieter crowd which suits us just fine, bungalows are in a quiet location, even though they are just across the road from the Cita Centre, are near to the Beach and the dunes and an easy walk to the Jumbo Centre - what more can we ask?
Mainly a German crowd and whilst other nationalities do stay, apart from the Manager, most of the staff do not speak much English, but we get by on our limited Spanish. Pleased to see that kettles have now been added to the kitchen ware (previously we had to use the coffee maker or a pan on the hob), but be aware there is no hair dryer - so bring your own. Wifi is available and plenty of plug sockets to charge up our devices.
If you are staying at peak times such as November, Christmas or March, you need to book early - we booked in March for November and will be booking again for 2013.

Stayed here last week for 8 nights, 4 adults, plenty of room in bungalows, very clean, maids clean on a daily basis, changing towels everyday and beds once a week, they even supplied towels and washing up liquid.The gardens were well kept and the pools cleaned everyday, all the staff were friendly and helpful. There was a majority of Scandinavian/German tourists when we were there.The Cita center was okay for shopping and food, but the Yumbo center has lots more shops and restaurants, a little warning, if you go to Yumbo later in the evening there is a lot of gay men parading around, and a few gay and drag clubs.Went to the 'Kasbah', it was ok, had nice restaurants, and shops, but didn't stay out there later than 10.30 as we had heard that it can be a bit boisterous late at night, lots of hassle from 'lookie,lookie' men.!
The shops and the restaurants at the 'Lighthouse' are very nice, a bit expensive but worth a look, we went to the overpriced Aqualand, it is very tired and needs doing up, the food is very expensive, but fresh and tasty.,The pavement is rough and hurts your feet and could do with sweeping up and generally tidying up, wouldn't go back.

Room Tip: Rooms numbered 101 to 110 are in the sun all day long.

Wow - we stayed there for 17 days at the end of June. Wonderful location and friendly staff - Juan, Angelica and Alexandro not to mention the cleaning staff who were incredible in the soaring heat!
We would definitely recommend this marvellous place - pools were lovely, gardens and facilities. We will return!

Stayed for 5 days 3 of us. Same as all the other reviews and more, really clean, quiet, relaxing, everything you need down to the bottle of water in the fridge waiting for us along with washing up liquid, cloths etc. so no need to get or bring them with you. So near to everything if you want to venture out, but without having to put up with noisy neighbours when you come back. Will definitely be back as could not find anything at all to complain about. :)

No point in re-stating all the good points already made by previous reviewers. The Dona Rosa is a class above what you'd ordinarily expect and stands out from the crowd in terms of cleanliness, facilities, location etc.

Spent six fabulous days lounging by the pool in the company of a (mainly) German & Scandinavian clientèle. Some young, some old, all respectful of each others entitlement to a relaxing holiday. House rules like keeping music down ( i.e. not audible much beyond your own terrace ) and coming and going quietly in the evenings were scrupulously adhered to. Suppers out on the terrace or drinks before heading off to one of the local restaurants were an absolute pleasure.

Seventh day ruined for virtually everybody by the arrival of a troupe of drunken Spaniards with learning difficulties, a ghetto-blaster and no qualms about subjecting the neighbourhood to their taste in music. ( It wasn't actually all bad, but, you know, I like to have a choice... )

ANYWAY, if we'd been staying more than one further night we'd have asked to move to the other half of the complex. The trouble would have been that I think that everybody else would have done too ;-) I wonder whether the management would have had the good sense to move them on...

Not as cheap as some of the bungalow complexes in the neighbourhood, but you get 24 hour air-con included in the price ( and that is charged by meters @ 1Euro per 90 minutes nearby ) a generous supply of good quality towels (but bring your own beach/pool towel along) a fairly well equipped kitchen (bring your own chef's knife if you want anything sharp!)

The bus stop @ the Commercial Centre CITA is a stone's throw away with an hourly service to / from the airport that's actually quicker than the communal transfer coaches that stop at every hotel along the way.

Room Tip: Rooms that back on to the street at the rear of the property are said to suffer from traffic noise a...

We stayed for 10 days in the off-season and were very impressed by the location, cleanliness, calm, space of our accommodation and the efficiency of the staff. We had two large bedrooms and a fair-sized kitchen in a comfortable bungalow. The bungalows are sitated round the pool. What luxury to stap off the terrace directly into the water. Previously, we have stayed in hotels and were rather wary of self-catering holidays. However, the greater space and not being subject to strict hotel dining hours were a definite plus. Furthermore the accommodation is conveniently situated for the beach and there is wifi access throughout.
