For our first trip to Gran Canaria , we read up on all the reviews we could , this hotel was coming back with quite good reviews, so we thought we would give it a try ; we were not dissapointed , the hotel grounds ,and hotel itself ,and toilets were spotlessly clean, and kept that way all the time we were there by the very hard working cleaning staff, the maids never seemed to stop, and were always available if you needed anything extra in between your room clean: The hotel is very well positioned ,being just a nice leisurely stroll from the beach , or there was a regular free bus that you could take from the hotel; The swimming pools in the hotel were very good , and again ,kept very clean by the staff , Drinks in the bar were very good , with all kinds of spirits readily available , both local, and imported , the measures were , as you expect , large to extra large ; ice was bought -in , and not made from " tap " water ,so was very safe to have , ; The meals in the restaurant were very good ,and you always had a wide choice of cooked meats ,fish , or vegetarian options , with a mountain of salad stuff , you would have to be very hard to please not to find something good to eat there ; all served piping hot ,fresh made ,( never warmed up ) , same with breakfasts , all across the range from continental, to a " full English./.Irish " ...good bacon .!!! , Eating away from the hotel was good as well, lots of cafe' restaurants around the area : Entertainment on site was good , with the animation team offering lots of activities, and various competitions throughout the day, and putting on a show at night, or different acts coming onto site , singers ./. groups etc , all in all ,very good ,: If I had to make any negative comments , they would be , no Air-con in the rooms ( not even an option )and the Wi-Fi is very slow ( but free) or you can pay to use a computer in the reception area , this seems a little bit faster , and if you have a low ./.ground floor room ,your view out from your balcony will be very badly obstructed by the very mature palm trees , you need to be above level 5 to have any kind of view , The hotel overall was very very good , much more plus points than minus ones ,I would not hesitate to book another holiday there again , they catered very well for all kinds of holiday makers ,from young teenagers ,to young families , to people of my age 55+ yrs ,.
