We stayed at the Tranquilo Bungalow for 9 nights in June. What a wonderful little bungalow!
From the start José and Ana helped us to place our booking, provided all relevant information for our stay and despite our late arrival welcomed us with open arms!
It was simply a pleasure to step into this clean, modern and well furnished bungalow after a slightly fraught journey. José and Ana have created an atmosphere and decor which justly deserves the word Tranquilo. There was a small welcome pack; a bottle of wine; a couple of bottles of beer; some fruit; and most importantly a large bottle of water.
Inside, the bungalow is well equipped with excellent air conditioning which covers all rooms; well fitted and stocked modern kitchen; comfortable lounge furniture; spacious shower; king size bed; tiled flooring throughout; and super fast Wifi which is so essential nowadays!
Outside, the south facing garden is lovely, well equipped with seating and dining table; loungers; and an additional low level table and chairs in a shaded area. There is a barbecue provided, however we didn’t use this as we are far too lazy! During our stay the garden was frequented by a family of blackbirds who regularly visited to drink the grass sprinkler water - it was delightful.
The bungalow is only a short taxi ride to the beautiful Maspalomas sand dunes and shops in Meloneres. The abundant taxis which you can hail from the roadside only costs around €4 OR it’s a pleasant flat walk of around 30 minutes.
Playa Bungalows complex is extremely well maintained and has an excellent well kept swimming pool. Thankfully, it is primarily residential and doesn’t have that awful holiday camp feel of tourist complexes. This adds to the feeling of tranquility. We noted in the advert for the bungalow that residents are required to stop all noise from 22.30hrs and we were delighted that this was adhered to :-)
We had a great time at this GEM OF A BUNGALOW - thank you José and Ana :-) As Arnold Schwarzenegger once said "I'll be back!"
We would not hesitate to recommend you to stay at the Tranquilo Bungalow con Jardin en Maspalomas.
We stayed at this lovely bungalow for 2 weeks in October 2016 and really loved it. The place is spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need. Attention to detail is great. The host picked us up from the airport even though our flight was delayed and didn't get in until after midnight. There was a bottle of wine and olives waiting for us ! The bungalow itself is on a lovely complex with pools and a 24 hour shop - which we used all the time. One thing I would recommend is hiring a car to explore the island. Although the beach is not too far it still takes a good 15 minute walk to get there. There is a good network of buses and taxis are really cheap if you cant. The island itself is very scenic and undergoing a lot of redevelopment to the North. The South of the island where we were was looking a little tired in some areas but still worth seeing. I would note that there is a huge nudist beach by the Dunes and Playa Del Ingles nightlife has a very large gay scene. Some great stage shows to go and see though ! Be open minded. But lots of fun. North Gran Canaria has some lovely beaches and fantastic mountain scenery. I would definitely stay at this bungalow again and definitely visit Gran Canaria again. Thank you for such a lovely first time visit to your island Hose.
