“Never Again!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2007

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Strelitzias appartments in Gran Canaria. When we arrived we had to wait around for over an hour because no one was there to check us in! While we waiting we had a taster of things to come, which included very loud and inconciderate young spanish groups which looked drunk and some looked like they were on drugs!!

Eventually we checked in and went to the appartment, which was on the ground floor. First thing which was a concern was the security aspect of the room, as we were on the ground floor the lock on the sliding glass doors did not seem sufficient to stop anyone trying to get in, and also our balcony space was did not even have a barrier wall, so not very private at all!!!

The room was kept very clean with the maids coming every other day, although some days it would be too early in the morning and even with the door locked they could get in!

Going back to the young spanish groups we saw and heard - they take over everything and think of no one, speaking so loud, playing music (trying to blow their stereo speakers loud!) at all times in the day or night, They stayed in the appartments on level s 2 & 3 and threw their rubbish (apple cores, bottles, wrappers, food in general etc...) onto the ground floor, also smashing bottles on the ground floor!!! I think you get the idea....
This noise and these idiots come on Thursdays and go on Sundays/Mondays! And for the rest of the time while they are not there, the pool and apartments are a much nicer and quieter place.

The rooms do keep cool in the day, as there is a cool breeze - however at night they seem to absorb the heat. There is no air conditioning, and it is quite frustrating when you are waking up 6/7 times in the night because of the heat (to shower, walk outside to cool down)

With the resort in general, again it was a let down from what we expected. The bars, restaurants and shops are grouped into areas they call 'Shopping Centers' which in order for you to see what is there you need to walk into the thick of it which is not nice. The apartments are 60 meters away from the 'Kasbah' shopping center and that were the nightlife is really, but there are so many different bars/ 'disco pubs' (lol) next to each other you cant hear the music of just one place, it just blends into a nonsense sound. The music on offer is R&B and a very small bit of dance. Limited really. There are a few good Irish bars which have karaoke as well.

We have been to Corfu, Rhodes, Kos, Crete, Majorca, Ibiza, Menorca, Tenerife and Lanzarote - and would go back to them again - but as for Gran Canaria, we shall not be returning anytime soon

  • Liked — It was clean kept
  • Disliked — Security of rooms, no air conditioning, no views, too loud
