Better than expected

First time in Gran Canaria, hotel better than expected. Room and hotel spotless, pool areas and gardens well maintained. Reception staff extremely helpful. Hotel only 30% full would think bar areas would be extremely crowded when full. Would come back again but not in high season. Like being able to get sunbeds around the pool until 10:30 - 11:00 am. Overall a most enjoyable stay with good food and friendly staff. read hotel review

Enjoyed our stay , room was tastily decorated. The staff were extremely helpful and long waits were never encountered. The highlight of the hotel was the 10-11 entertainment though we found that the adult entertainment was too short and there was a little to do within the hotel after that. The food was very nice but could be a little more hot. Area is nice so we will come back there. read hotel review
