This was the 3rd visit to this hotel and have enjoyed it every time, close to some very friendly pubs but also not in the centre of things to disturb sleep. Most places are in walking distance . Staff are very friendly and helpful and rooms are kept clean and tidy with fresh towels most days.

This hotel can be good, especially when upgraded. Staff excellent, apart from 1! Food plenty and good variety. I just did not like Playes de Inges. Too large. Very much a concrete jungle. Surrounding areas good. San Augustine very nice but quite, pipe and slippers. Costa Rico , very nice but very hilly.

The Hotel was welcoming and excellent value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to return in the future with my family to stay. Quality of service, food and entertainment made our holiday a very relaxed and enjoyable experience

We went as a family and enjoyed our stay on an all inclusive basis. There's plenty of food and drink choice, the staff at the restaurant especially are incredibly hard working and friendly always with a smile in their faces. The woman at reception wasn't welcoming or friendly which was odd being front of house they represent the hotel to...

So, an honest review from a recent traveller. THe hotel IS dated and in need of updating but they are doing that. The reception staff are incompetent, rude and ignorant. The food is ok, its varied but like other reviews it is warm and not hot. The drinks are ok. The entertainment staff try hard and are lovely people but...

Rooms were spacious and clean. If you prefer a quieter pool, go to the one over by the suites (most adults went there as the pool is deeper). Entertainment quite good. Let down slightly by buffet restaurant in the evenings. At the griddle it became a bit of a free for all waiting for fresh food to be cooked. Waiting...

My sister and myself had s short break in Gran Canaria. The hotel was good, but not excellent. The cleanliness was fair, not excellent, the food was average, but the utter chaos in the restaurant was so bad it stopped us eating there.

The service is this hotel is almost 5 stars. The only thing getting it down is the restaurant food and service. The reception team are fantastic as is the bar staff. The pool and VIP area are great. I would return again but only on a self catering basis.
