    Staff was amazing! Very helpful all the time, everyone who works there is very friendly. Hotel is very big and full of services (large swimming pool, large restaurant, nice bar, internet, games... The list goes on and on). Room is super clean! Location is good, but not great. There is a good and cheap restaurant in the corner in the hotel building (but outside). There is a stand on the opposite corner where you can buy boat trips, bike trips, diving, etc, very cheap. Totally recommended!!!

    Very well located hotel, only 100 meters from bus stops to the airport, to Las Palmas and many other lines, 300 meters to a 4km beach... Hotel is great, lovely garden with swimming pools, palm trees etc. Food was fantastic, choice of 10 kind of breakfast, for dinner: 10 starters, 10 desserts, 5 main course, amazing experience!

    Only few details such as rooms are a bit oldish, would need refurbishment. Rooms can be noisy if on street.

    The cleaning staff did a very good job in the room every day and were pleasant to engage with -10/10

    1. I expected a more pleasant welcome on my arrival. Full advance payment was demanded as my initial greeting at the front desk. They suggested that my credit card was not in order initially and when found to be ok allowed me to sign instead of using my pin number - this as some sort of favour. I was left to find my own way to the room. I expect pepole at the front dsk to give a better welcome to paying guests - very poor 0/10. 2. There were too many hidden 'Ryanair type' charges -e.g. room safe: 18 Euro, water at the dinner had to be paid for, internet and WiFi charged at 1 Euro / 10 mins, etc. 3. Dinner shut down at 9 pm which is too early for those who like to return late back to hotel each day. 4. Hot food was not hot.

    Fabulous

    Easy to get to from the airport, close to the beach, plenty of pool chairs, the breakfast was nice, big variety. Overall is was an easy trip just to get some sun and relax.

    Suggestions would be wifi "complimentary", if the wifi had been available, I would of stayed at the hotel and had a drink instead of going to the sports bar next door, and maybe a few more TV channels in either Spanish or English instead of German.

    The swimming area was definitely the best part of the hotel. The food was also good, with a large variety including typical canarian dishes. The location was central, with easy access to the beach, pubs and restaurants. We were able to walk along the coast to San Agustin for a quieter night on the 2nd night.

    Initially, the hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful, however, there were no hairdryers in the room and when asked to borrow one from reception, we were told (for 2 consecutive days) that they were all out. This was quite annoying for 3 girls staying in a triple room. There were also only 2 glasses in the room. We asked for another, but it was at least an hour before it was provided. The hotel seems a little bit dated and the rooms are very basic.

    Nice place, it is near to beach and bus stations. The room is clean.

    The hotel is laut. the sound isolation is very bad. I can hear the traffic and my neighbor very clearly. The hotel staff work very slow, I had to always wait.
