High value for money. Nice, clean, quiet hotel. I´ve visited this hotel twice with my family (2 adults, 4 kids) and we have been very satisfied. Good location on top of the hill, nice view from the balcony. Polite and helpful staff, clean and well equipped rooms with enough space inside and a large balcony. Nice, large pool area and a little bar, which closes around 8-9 pm. (which means, it is really quiet to sleep at nights). Sun shines the whole day to the pool area, but not straight in to the rooms. 5 minutes walk to nearest shopping center, where is a supermarket, plenty of other shops an a large variety of restaurants and pubs. Pharmacy and a doctors appointment are 5 minutes walk away, if needed. There is about 1 hours walk to city center of Puerto Rico, or to Amadores (beach), but taxi takes to both places in 10 minutes (approx. 3 euros). Taxi stop is by the shopping center and taxis are available 24/7. I can seriously recommend this hotel to people travelling with kids an not seeking after extreme nightlife.

Nice, quiet hotel...
I was there with my family,
we were eleven people...

there is plenty of room in the apartment, but the pool is very small....
if you need more shopping, then take the taxi 10 minutes drive to the big centrum ...
there are alots of people and places to eat.........

Visit the hotel with my family. It's quiet, on the top of the hill. There is 1,9km to the beach (Amadores), Nice for a walk up and down :-) The apt are big, with a good size terrasse, furnished for four people. The poolarea is big, the staff are polite and nice. There is a poolbar, but no entertainment. Short way to the Europacenter. Anyway it's cheap with taxi in Gran Canaria. This was our second time in this hotel. If you want party and action, stay in another hotel.

Room Tip: Every room has big balcons, half of the rooms with poolwiew, all with a little bit seawiew. No rooms...

We went to Balcon Del Mar with our kids, aged 7 and 5. The staff was very polite and friendly, the hotel is quite far from the beach though, if you go left from the hotel and make for Amadores beach instead, you don't need to climb down the impressive stairway our kids learnt to respect and hate a bit ;) The heated pool, wasn't or wasn't heated enough for adults, but the kids swam merrily. The Europe shopping center is close, but think twice before eating there, it's worth the trip to the CC Puerto Rico's bit more expensive restaurants to eat well.

I visited Balcon Del Mar with two of my friends. We were at Gran Canaria for cycling. Maspalomas would have give more alternative routes more easily, but Puerto Rico was good choise too. Balcon Del Mar was nicely located at the top of the hill and it gave nice challenging end to our cycling trips.

About the hotel: Peaceful location, spacious rooms (three bikes easily stored inside, we had four person room for three), balcony was big and it was nice to relax there during sunset after riding. City center is a bit far away, but it is still easily accessed by walking. Taxi from/to city costs less than five euro. Supermarkets in the city are somewhat cheaper than the one in Europa shopping center, so we advice you to go to supermarket after dinner and then grab a taxi back to hotel, so that you don't have to carry your drinking water long distances.

Nice and gentle staff. Spacious rooms. But far away from the beach, about 600 stairs to climb. Close to the Europe Shopping Center . A lot of restaurants in the Center. Avoid the Brasero !
The hotel will charge you 3 Euro per day for the Tv, the travel agent did not mention this in advance.

this is one of the best hotels i've stayed at in the canary islands. we where there for 1 week and really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful if we needed help with something. the staff at the poolbar was friendly. At first sight there where a long way down to the center and beach but when we found the staires it was fine. We would return to this hotel at our next holiday to puerto rico...
