“Value for money accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

We have just returned from 10 days at these bungalows and we're generally pleased with the accommodation. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly Spanish lady - who unfortunately spoke no English. This being a resort catering generally for non Spanish nationals I would expect that English would have been a standard for reception. None the less we were made to feel welcome. There is another receptionist who works from 3pm who does speak English - however she doesn't have the same happy disposition as the the morning reception. We found her quite blunt and surly.
The bungalows are quite large, clean and well equipped. Clean bathroom and kitchen. Two large single beds in the bedroom which were comfortable. Bedding is changed every 7 days and towels every other day. Bungalows are cleaned every day and they even changed the covers on the sofabed and chair which is a new one on me! One negative would be the tv. Although no one goes on holiday to sit inside watching tv, there are no English language stations at all so if English is your only language, don't bother turning it on!
Safe hire is €2.50 a day. We did take a safe however having been, this is quite a secure complex as there is always someone on reception and would be happy not to have one if we go back.
Overall a positive stay, clean, no roaches, well equipped and well maintained.
Positives - regular towel changes, cleaned every day, close to Centro do Yumbo for bars, restaurants etc, unlimited hot water fork showers etc. good mix of age ranges, didn't seem to be a pensioner haven as per one previous review.
Negatives - Reception, small pool area
Overall very good and would go back.
Would also recommend going to the Yellow Rose restaurant nearby as have always had really good meals here with great staff.

Room Tip: Ask for an end bungalow as you do get slightly more of a garden to sit out in.

Los Girasoles is a beautiful, clean and immaculate place. However its quiet......very very quiet. Even although its full.

If your under 55-60 yrs oId you will probably feel out of place. Also, its mainly Nordic nationals who stay there so you never get to speak to anyone as they do not speak English. There are a lot of motability scooters outside of most bungalows. There are no English TV channels apart from the news channel (?) and no music channels??. To be honest im 47 and my partner is 48, and, it did feel like a retirement resort. I would stay there again when Im older but not until then.

The pool is immaculate but small and when thers about 30 people sunbathing its full and you cannot get any space. Also, our friend who works in Playa Del Ingles was dropping some stuff of when wed been shopping during the day..... be warned no visitors allowed at any time which I found very strange during the day (night time yes!) but not daytime.

Lastly, and most crucial. There are no fans (or air con which I never use anyway) and even in Nov when it only got as low as 19 we had a few uncomfortable sweaty nights of restless sleep. Heaven only knows how people cope in the summer? Bearing that in mind you only get bedding changed weekly. My bed was minging after 4 sweaty nights - not nice!

Summary: Each to their own I suppose but its way to quiet and boring. We spent more money going out this time as we were out 2 hours before we would be normally because it was soooo quiet. I have rated it 3 and thats for the cleanliness and beautiful gardens only.

Having just returned from Gran Canaria, I can safely say that these bungalows are by far the best I have ever stayed in. I have been to Gran Canaria 6 times, and found these bungalows extremely clean, friendly and a quiet oasis in the busy resort of Playa Del Ingles.
The staff are very pleasant, and the bungalows and surrounding gardens constantly looked after.
The receptionists, cleaners, nightime staff and security guards where all friendly and helpful. We will definately be returning next year!!!

Room Tip: Ask for an end bungalow, they are in three's and you get a slightly larger garden!!

We recently stayed at Los Girasoles in Playa del Ingles. Pool area and pool bar were very nice and the accomodation was clean with the sheets changed once a week and towels twice a week. The complex is very close to the Yumbo centre but surprisingly it is very quiet. Only complaint is the manning of the reception after midnight. When you return at night the door to the complex is locked and you have to wait out on the street for the night porter to come and let you in, this can be a long wait as he patrols the complex regularly and if he has just set off on his rounds guests have to wait on the street until he gets back. He was very rude to my family and it's a shame he lets the hotel down when the day reception staff are very friendly and helpfull.

I've stayed at Los Girasoles on three previous occasions and have highly commended the place in the past on Trip advisor

The place is still lovely, however there were a few points, which made this visit not so pleasant:

1. You are only allowed one key pass per bungalow. Therefore you either hang around with your friend/ partner all of the time, or you have to bang on the door.......something you might not want to do in the wee small hours.

2. Only guests allowed on the premises. Ok for security, but your not staying in Fort Knox and reception gets very tetchy even if you accompany your friends.....This is very inconvenient and a right hassle...the result of which is that we went to friends staying at a five star hotel.....this is just plain silly.....

These points both seem trivial, but the result is that I will not be going back again……its such a shame….

We stayed at the 'Los Girasoles bungalows" from August 13th - 27th 2007. We were originally booked to stay at the Las Faulas apartments but were changed four weeks before flying to the Los Girasoles. After arriving there we realised we need'nt have worried! The reception staff were friendly and welcoming. Our bungalow was not the biggest but nevertheles was very clean and perfect for the two of us. The bathroom was modern and the maids came at least once per day in the morning to clean and replace the towels. There was no problem asking for extra pillows or towels for the room as the staff were more than willing to help!
There was a pool bar with very friendly staff that served usual pub food eg pizza,burgers etc and was not expensive either.
The guests were mostly spanish and german and we were the only British guests during our stay,which suited us fine.
Overall we loved our stay at the Los Girasoles and will definatley go back!
