22nd August - 29 August Room 40 Family of 6 ages 12, 18, 20, 30, 31, 67 We came with low expectations of this place due to all the bad feedback on here and all the hassle we had with the travel agent ‘Resorts 4 All’. When we arrived it was a shock to actually see how nice the place...

I booked through Resorts4All and I can't stress enough how awful they are as a company and that their phonelines seemed to stop working leading up to the holiday and no contact via email either however they are not Atlantic Sands (they don't work with them anymore which is good to hear). We were unsure what we'd find when we...

We spent two weeks at Atlantic Sands, Gran Canaria in July 2012. I may be sticking my neck out here, but when a resort chooses to call itself 'Atlantic Sands' you might be forgiven for expecting at least one of the two words to be relevant to its location. Disappointingly Atlantic Sands is a significant distance from the Atlantic and...

Having read several reviews of Atlantic Sands in Gran Canaria, my expectations were understandably pretty low - I figured as long as we had somewhere to sleep, for a very cheap Groupon-style deal we can expect very little but we'll be happy with whatever we get. ] In reality, we were bowled over by the quality of the apartment. Yes,...

On arrival I admitted to thinking why have they sent me to the back of beyond. Rocks, dust, miles from no-where. However, the apartments, set over two floors are just over a year old, are modern with all the convenience of home. There are two pools, one for the younger children, a small bar providing drinks and food. There are...

Stayed in this beautiful accommodation in July with my partner and 4 children and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Apartments are amazing, staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful always there for you if needed so pleasant to get on with. Yes building work going on but didn't affect us in anyway, bit isolated but just a 5 min taxi ride...

We have just returned home from a relaxing and nice week at Atlantic Sands Hotel. The weather was at its best, the apartment new and luxurious, and the staff always smiling and service minded. The hotel is located in what we learned used to be a popular camping area for hippies! Not many of those around anymore. We found the...

The resort is not on mains electric therefore A/C in our apartment did not work and regular power cuts were the norm. No fun coming back to a fridge & freezer of ruined food. No apology from reception Huge generator outside the complex supplied spasmodic electricity but regular noise! Shuttle bus was taken out of service as I believe it...

I have just returned from Atlantic Sands after an enjoyable holiday with family. A nice complex overal but a few teething problems need fine tuning. It is a new complex so there is still some building work going on but to be honest you don't really notice until you walk out of the complex. There is not much in the...

“If you are already booked and paid for to stay at Atlantic Sands - please ask for an apartment whose balcony / veranda faces the pool area, and not onto the building site (likes ours did!).”
