The resort was very quiet and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.The rooms do need a re-paint but the owners have only... More

Travelled and stayed here in January 2013. I looked at the comments about the doors. Our doors did close, with a little effort, but we didn't experience any issues with crime. They're not quite as close to the Yumbo as they say, but only a 10 minute walk. The bungalows themselves, were great, as was the manager looking after the... More

I stayed here end of October 2012. I'll start with the positives. Its in a good location beside Cita centre, you can get the bus from the airport which drops you off at the top of the street for 3 euro, so very handy to get to. It's also quite close to the beach, the apartments themselves are modern and... More

I stayed in this resort last week, it's very different to most other Gran Canaria resorts in it's modern styling and finish, the resort has a real luxury feel to it. The rooms are modern, spacious and very clean. The location is great, close to both the beach and the shops (Yumbo, Cita etc) I will certainly be staying here... More

I stayed at this small development of nine single story apartments in October 2010. The location is excellent, 5 minutes from the Yumbo shopping centre and two minutes from the beech boardwalk. The apartment was very clean with a tidy layout. Small development recently refurbished. Quiet and suitable for the independent traveller. Nice pool and surrounds to relax. Enough beds... More

“Don't choose room 1 as it's close to the main entrance which is quite noisy when closed.”
 of 5 bubbles Oskar75, 4 Jan 2014 | Read review
“Ask for a room closer to reception - the ones closer to the entrance are more prone to be broken in to.”
