Stayed here for a week with friends during Gran Canaria Pride and have to say that you cannot beat it. The room is nice, if not a little standard, but plenty of room, big terrace with reclining seats, large bathroom, plenty of towels etc. Only gripe in this department is the lack of bathroom products, just a wall mounted "all-in one", which wasn't particularly nice either. Take your own.
The thing that sets this place apart is the service, particularly in the restaurant. Quite incredible. On our first night we chose our wine and preferred to use the larger wine glasses, the next day everything we had ordered the night before, even down to the glasses was there waiting for us. If you had soup and forgot to pick up a spoon, all of a sudden a waiter would be there with one. Had to be seen to be believed.
The pool area is lovely and again the pool drinks and food service was great. Plenty of sun beds and cushions although the older folk are down there very early with their towels!! We still managed to get one.
My only complaint (very minor) was that they made a rubbish Cosmopolitan!
We would definitely stay there again, in fact we are already looking to book again for next year.
