I just want to start off by saying that the Thomas Cook plane was outdated and had no entertainment, it was cramped and staff just wanted to upsell their products. Check in at Gran Canaria airport on the return is disgusting - one desk to check people in or 15e per person to jump the que. Thomas Cook are rip-off merchants through and though!!! (this ha not effecting my review of the hotel)

lovely uptodate hotel reception. Staff great. luggage locker and free wi-fi.
nice size, plenty of seats. tea, coffee, water, juice, pop, etc...all on pump or machine for all inc. food was varied for our 2 weeks. italian, bbq, chinese, canarian, etc. we all found something to eat and you must be VERY fussy if you cannot. I've never found an all inc that provides great puddings, but here is just the same as all hotels.
Just outside the restaurant and by the main pool. tea, coffee, juice, water, pop, beer on tap. Had to ask for spirits, which are local only. plenty of seating and smokers not too much of a hassell. free wi-fi here too. Nice playground here for kids to burn energy off in.
Main one is very big, nice size and lots of beds round it. no probs with getting a bed and brolly. There is a shallow pool for young kids. Activity pool with the slide is great too. Shallow pool here has small slide in too for youngsters. Bar here too. Never saw snacks here!! Playground for kids here too. Free wi-fi here.
Nice size lounge/kitchen. Flat screen TV (bbc1, 2 and 3 we got). Fan and all the usual for all inc or self catering - kettle, toaster, coffee machine, pots, pans, etc.. Bedroom nice size and lots of storage. Safe is 15e per week. fan and bars over window so you can keep window open during the day. I can see aircon being a plus in july/aug. We didn't have it and was barable in june. Bathroom is very small, but has everything you need inc hairdryer. Get rid of the stupid bday and you'd have more space. we got weak wi-fi signal at other side of complex. Shoudln't have got it but we did, so big bonus.
Mark and Mollie were great. Thomas Cook has seperate entertainment to hotel staff. Why don't they just join forces. Would be much better. Entertainmenyt during day great. Staff never pushy and varied too - shooting, archery, shufflebaord, water polo, exersize classes, games and more. Kids club was fantastic. 3 clubs depending on age. morning, afternoon and evening clubs most days, but not all. Staff great.
Free bus to beach and return
water park not worth the money...in my opinion. Annimal park well worth visit, but take own food and water as food and drink inside is expensive. get the bus, cheap and regular.
All in all a very good holiday. Yes i would go back and yes I would return. very few negatives.
