“Very nice”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Great location. Basic and what you pay for if you want to stay in the bungalows all day! Bar staff are lovely. Steve's very welcoming.
Me & my family are certainly going back for next Christmas & New-Year.

Room Tip: Bungalow 305 (Ask for the back gate key), the garden gets the sun all day long. Only a stones throw...

Me and my wife have just returned from a weeks stay here (9th-16th Nov 2013) the bungalows are in an excellent location central to everywhere, the bungalow its self was quite adequate it was cleaned almost daily by the pleasant ladies who are employed there. There is no air conditioning but there are ceiling fans in both rooms although they are noisy and gave us the impression of being under a helicopter. There are two pools of a very good size but some of the poolside furniture could do to be updated we never experienced any noise problems and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: 230 near pool

I stayed for a week in the middle of a friend's fortnight. He's stayed there a few times already. It's a nice little conplex and fairly quiet. We could here music from one of the big hotels but that was over by midnight and we weren't leaving to go out till 11pm anyway

As my friend has been before he feels the kitchens aren't massively well equipped and takes a couple of extra items like a potato masher (madness)

I believe all the bungalows are privately owned and essentially sublet for holidays as all the apartments are so different, this means some are a little tired but they are cleaned regularly and that's the main thing.

Good location, probably only a five minute walk to the yumbo centre. Mixed crowed of Germans and Brits, a couple of kids around but don't know what the situation is like in summer etc as it was November and I'm guessing they're in school.

Only real criticism is that wifi around the pool can be dire. It must drop twice a day at least. That may or may not be a problem for some.

I'll be returning again to Santa Clara for sure.

Although i've been to Gran Canaria many times this was my first stay in The Santa Clara Bungalows.

The reception staff were friendly and the bungalows spacious and clean. We stayed in a 2 bedroom bungalow (No.191) The bedrooms were of good size & the beds comfortable. The kitchen more than adequate with both a microwave and a toaster. The bathroom was also a good size with good water pressure. The bungalows had an outside table and chairs which was useful.

Our bungalow was quite secure in that it was surrounded by a gate on the outside and had two lockable doors before you got access to the property. When we arrived one of these doors didnt look properly but by the next day the fault was fixed. The main gated door we didnt have a key too but that didnt matter too much as we still felt secure and at night you could only get access to the complex via a gate next to reception which everyone staying in a property had a key for.

The complex had 2 pools both of good size and both with kid pools attached. The smaller of the two pools also had a jacuzzi. In between the two pool was the pool bar which sold everything from alcohol and ice creams to hot food. We didnt use this other than to buy a bottle of sprite so i cant rate this, although there were people eating there everyday for lunch so i assume the food was good.

The only negative thing we have to say about the property is that it didnt have air con (which we were aware of before we booked) the property stated it had ceiling fans which it did to a certain extent. My bedroom had twin beds and a fan on one of the walls rather than the ceiling. The angle of the fan meant that i got a good breeze from one of the beds but if there had been someone else staying in the other bed then not only would they have got no breeze but then fan would have been directly above their head.
The ceiling fan in the living room worked but it was not powerful to actually make any difference to the temperature. Unfortunately the 2nd bedroom didnt have a fan at all, it had the fitting on the ceiling but no actual fan. This meant that on some nights my friend found it too hot to sleep in the room and had to sleep in the living room which is not ideal. We never found out why there was no fan nor did we ask for it to be fixed. So we have no idea whether the problem could have been recified or not.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Santa Clara bungalows and would stay here again providing all bedrooms had a fan. The property is 5 min walk away from shops and the Yumbo center so in a perfect location.

9 of us have just returned from 10 days at Santa Clara, we had 3 bungalow and they were good value for money, we had cleaners everyday except Sunday and the day we were leaving. Towels were changed 4 times during our stay. The price for a spacious 2 bed bungalow was excellent, the pool bar prices were also very good value and food quality was excellent. Pedro on reception was very helpful at all times, it is a place we would return to again as its location was also good for the Kasbah and Yumbo.
