We liked it in this hotel was good. The food is good and varied. Very short walk to the beach. This was always clean. Only about 50m away is the bus stop for trips. The pool area are always clean and well maintained. Highly recommended is but, a warmer jacket to wear in the dining room. It is unfortunately always woken up by, because all doors and partly also the windows are open. We will certainly again in this hotel vacation. read hotel review

Super hotel with a super beautiful pool area. It was just a pity that it is directly because of the main street. If you were at the pool sunbathing, irritating so manchmale the car etc. The entire staff was super nice and helpful. The service was super. The rooms were our opinion a bit dated. Something colourful could it be. The food was partly only lukewarm but very tasty and lots of variety. As described, it wasn't far to the beach. We have no 5 minutes. Also the view from the balcony was not so great. The hotel itself was ... in our opinion in good condition and very well maintained. It was soon always cleaned, so that nothing was dirty. Every evening there was a great entertainment. Everything complete: thumbs up ☺ read hotel review

    Bathroom and rooms were ok, but could be a bit of friendliness use. A bit dreary. Size was ok. Only unfortunate which one only 2 german programs could see, all other were liable to pay the costs. One is not in the vacation around television to look, but if it times Regent and we had it or go to bed at night, it would have been great.

    Distance to the beach: no 5 minutes = super Distance to the airport: about 25 minutes = ok The bus and taxi services was in about 2 minutes distance. A pity that the beach was not always shops and so, you had to walk a little. But it was ok.

It gave during the day many games and sports facilities around the pool area was nice.

The hotel i can't recommend this unfortunately, since some things much to complain about. All. In, is worthwhile in this hotel in no case, since one for services should pay, which with universe in actually should be. Example 1st no air conditioning, no mini-fridge. Point 2 for the remote control 10 Euro deposit and for certain channels 3 Euro per day. On the day one (mrs) after check-out 12 hours treated like air. We should for 14 hours fetched and wanted to have lunch, that would be against a price of 15 Euro go, (per person) but in what a ... sound. Almost everywhere non-smoking, even on the balcony, the only for smokers. read hotel review

Altogether the vacation pleased us well, the price performance ratio is very good. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. In the winter and in the nebensaison was the audience place relatively old, which we before the holiday, but are also aware of. The decor of the rooms is a bit old, but always clean and tidy. Unfortunately, there was no hair dryer available and could only at a charge of 12 Euro per week be borrowed. The safe costs 6 Euro per day, which we found very expensive felt. But overall a clear recommendation of the hotels. read hotel review

We have just returned from our 7th visit to this hotel. We book all inclusive and return each year as the standards are consistently very high. The hotel attracts guests from all over Europe and all nationalities are catered for. read hotel review
  • Room
    5.0

    Bedrooms are of a good size with balcony and en-suite bathrooms. The rooms are cleaned daily and, as with the rest of the hotel, are kept spotlessly clean. There is a room safe (fee payable), flat screen tv, with programmes from the major European countries and a telephone with a card stating calls from your room to the rest of Europe cost 25 cents per minute. The bathrooms have wash basin, toilet, bath with shower attachment. Each landing has a cold drinks machine, usually near the lift/stairs area.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    The restaurant is buffet self service and offers a wide range of food types to cover the different nationality tastes. Nobody will ever go hungry at the Continental as my expanding waistline will confirm! All inclusive guests help themselves to teas, coffees beers, wines etc. with waiter service for other drinks. Just off Reception, there is a large bar area with indoor and outdoor seating. Obviously the staff are pleased to receive tips but you don't feel any pressure to do so.

    From the moment we arrived to a warm, friendly greeting from Octavio on Reception to the moment we left to a warm, friendly goodbye from our room maid, Carla, service in the hotel was exceptional. Reception, bar and restaurant staff are all multi-lingual. The Reception staff are happy to help with local transport, currency exchange etc. Although the hotel was fully booked when we were there, the restaurant staff are super efficient at clearing and re-laying tables so there was no queuing for tables. The whole hotel is always spotlessly clean.

Sun screens were much too little, the pool plant for so many guests simply much too small, the showers were only few guests used.

    The room was for our understanding of a good size. Double room, wardrobe, space for the bags, couch, flat screen tv with the usual german channels (remote control at the reception, without remote control but also directly at the television adjustable). As already described is no air conditioning in the rooms. No mini bar. Refrigerator and mobile air conditioning on request for an additional cost. Large balcony with table and two chairs. Two lines. Telephone with the offer for 29 cents per minute to Germany on the phone. Bathroom with bathtub. Shower, probably because of the age of the hotel in any room. As far as we saw it is everything a bit used, however not neglected. Occasionally can already times as a scape into the wall, but i was already in german 4 star hotels worse saw.

    All meals in buffet form. The price-performance ratio was absolutely in order. If you want more demands, should a 5 star hotel book. Drinks for self-tap. Beer, wine, water (and not carbonated), as well as various soft drinks (Pepsi, schweppes...) There was always a selection of fish, pork, beef, lamb, and pasta. Of course also fries etc. Salads are mainly krautsalate, but especially in the evening it gives then mixed salads with fish, eggs etc. Desserts as in Spain usual different cakes/tarts and creams. Delicious: 6 different sorts ice (need our local italians not to hide itself. Sliced fruit mostly various melons. These nectarines, bananas, oranges, etc. To peel. Pleasant long meal times: Breakfast from 7:30 until 10:30 a. m. (early risers starting at 5:00 a. m.) Lunch from 13:00 until 3:30 p. m. Dinner from 18:00 until 9:00 p. m. One was asked certain times at dinner be respected (for example 19:30 to 9:00 p. m.), but there was always space. The dining room is relatively spacious and bright (2 windows). In big dining halls usual rattle with kitchenware holds itself within limits. Table-ware is constantly cleared. If no one more seat at the table, the table for the next guests arranged. There are everywhere stations with cutlery, so that you can easily new supply can, if the waiters time too fast were ☺

The towels you can when the lifeguard picked up again. Small deduction in the review: the 'theatre' is too small for the hotel. The evening entertainment you often get no more place.

    To the beach it is a few minutes' walk away, however one must then still another stairs down. On the beach promenade you need in an easy pace approximately 20 to 25 minutes up to the sand dunes of Maspalomas. Shortly before the end of the promenade there is a shopping center with a lift from the promenade until center level. So that you can at least 2 floors to the beach to save ☺ On the promenade are especially against evening all kinds of artists a.

To the beach Maspalomas with the dunes one marches about 30 minutes, the beach is ideal for beachwalkers, about 6 kilometers long and fine sand. The shops on the beach and hotel are a lot cheaper than the markets in San Fernando and Mogán.

    In the hotel there is only one restaurant, this reminds me of a bad nightmare. The food is not seasoned, meat and fish are hours fried and steamed. So that only paperboard left. Tasted really bad. The bathroom also culinarily to enjoy, should pick another hotel. Sauces, plentiful water, without taste. We have 14 days nearly only fries and chicken nuggets eaten, because everything else hardly edible. I have never eaten so badly as there. Desserts are so sweet, that you can't eat. Maybe the bad food intention, that in the all inclusive not too much is eaten. Eggs and omelets are almost raw. There is almost every 2. the same day. No variation. For breakfast, for example, only 2 sorts of cheese, and the 2 weeks. The cheese is due to insufficient cooling hardly enjoyable.

    The way from the airport to the hotel takes about 30 minutes by the fact, that several hotels on the route, the time for almost an hour, but very acceptable, since the prospect could enjoy. The hotel was no 5 minutes to the beach. 200 meters road, stairs down and already one was at the bay. The beach chairs and umbrella at the beach i find personally too expensive. We had an umbrella in the shop at the hotel concerned for 15,00 Euro. I think the beach chair with umbrella for one day costs 7,50 Euro. Also these were much too far away from the sea. One night we had a pizza at the beach promenade in/out privileges, a very good looking restaurant, italian. Very delicious and highly recommended with 6,50 Euro for a margaritha-was. Thus verhungern one does not. 100 meters away from the hotel, there is a german woman, the tours offered. Very cheap and it has a lot of effort a good combination to find. We have 4 tours, jet skiing, buggy, catamaran and diving. Everything was very recommendable. Was really fun. Also you will pick you up directly at the hotel.
