The rooms were cleaned everyday and the food was much better than expected for what we paid. The animation team went the extra mile to entertain but where happy to let you relax if that's what you wanted to do. It's not often we would go back to the same place but this might be an exception. One small issue though is some of the sun loungers need repairing but other than this it's all good Collapse

I have recently come back from a stay here (Oct 2016) and I was very pleased with the hotel. I wasn't sure what to expect as its only 3 star, but i was pleasantly surprised. The hotel location is great, 5 mins from the beach and the bus station and tourist info is just across the road. It is clean and wecloming and the staff are all friendly and keen to assist if you need anything. There was plenty of choice for food and was available most of the day. The resturant staff were very efficent and friendly. I was happy with the room apart from the first night, we were given a room facing the main road and because there was no air con we had the balcony door open, the noise was awful, so loud all night. However, we hired a fan from reception for 27 euros for a week and once we shut the balcony door on a night the noise stopped. Also, i would say the pillows were too hard. Apart from that we had a great stay and would certainly go back again. Collapse

We spent 10 nights recently in this hotel, and we are very satisfied with it. I am pertty sure 3 star is very different category in Gran Canaria, the hotel looks amazing. The rooms are simple, but in nice condition, and the housekeeping team is FANTASTIC! evrything was spotless, the staff is extremly friendly and working hard! I can tell the same the other departments as well. The buffet restaurant was offer different types of food, I always can find something nice to eat. the restaurant team working hard and they are polite, and everybody speaks at least one but sometimes two or more foreign language. The only beauty mark was that the room located on the side of the hotel on the 3rd floor and the delivery arrived on that side every day. The gate and the lorries were very noisy in the morning, and the busy road next to the hotel did not help either. But you know wi did not spent too much time in our room, and can't everybody get a room with garden view :D I've read in former comments that the hotel rooms have no air conditioning which is true. During our stay in October it was not important at all, still was about 18-22 C degrees dutring the night but if you are tarvelling at summer it could be really hot, and I do understand if somebody compains about that. It could be really unpleasant in a hot room. The local beer was tasty, but I didn"t like the wine, but of course it was offerd on self service so obviously it was not the best quality. Wine, beer, jucies, tea and coffee were offered for unlimited consumption, and the snack bar was good as well. Dispite all inclusive package, you have to pay extras, for wifi, cocktails, most of the spirits, air fan etc. I can do without all of these, so it did not influance my holiday, but for some people it could be a problem. The pool area just amazing, and in October the hotel was not full so you do not have to fight over the sunbeds, as you can read in some reviews. of course during summer is a different matter. the beach is in 2 minutes walk, which is lovely, black sandy but on a windy day you would rather stay next to the pool. The hotel has animation team who are working hard as well try to entertain the guests. They organize different kind of games and shows, and none of the are spanish. They speak 3 or 4 different language very well and they are energetic and lovely. 1 minute walk from the hotel located the Park Tropical bus station, we used it a lot. Infomation service is provided, even can buy park ticets at the bus station. The timetables are very clear easy to use the bus service. I can recommend this hotel, we really enjoyed our stay.

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to this hotel. We love it because the location is excellent, the hotel is very clean and well presented and the food and restaurant are great. The staff really deserve a special mention, especially the restaurant staff. They work extremely hard and the restaurant is always very efficient and friendly, even at peak times. The public areas are lovely. The reception area is large with plenty comfortable places to sit and relax and cool down and get some wifi which coped really well with the amount of people using it. The outdoor terrace we love, however it is a smoking terrace and sometimes you can barely breathe due to the fumes. We found this a problem most times in the outdoor area beside the theatre too, every table had an ashtray and I asked at reception which area was non smoking and they said none. Which is a shame. We braved it out a few nights, but it was too much most of the time, so we stayed indoors. I would ask the management to consider the effects of passive smoking on their staff, especially the outdoor bar staff and the entertainments team who have to endure it every evening. A good man called Roy Castle, a non smoker, died of lung cancer due to being present in smoky environments. The lack of air conditioning is a disappointment, however we ordered a fan for the room which was 17 Euros for the week which wasn't expensive and helped to ensure a good nights sleep. If I stayed at a hotter time, I would have an air con unit ordered which was 60 euros a week I think, but would be worth the extra money. I thought there was a fan or air con in the room when we stayed 2 years ago but they must have removed them and expect them to be expensive and prone to break downs. All in all, we had a brilliant holiday there and hope to return. Bear in mind the above points and you won't be disappointed. Collapse
The Continental, still good food and hot bedrooms, My opinion.

We had very good weather and very good food, the bedroom was extremely hot due to the good weather,( no- Air-con ) I rented a fan from the shop downstairs to cool down at night, we were in the 8am dash every morning to get the sun-loungers in the shade under a straw parasol, the Animation Team was a new group but very good, plenty of laughs round the pool, they seemed to have cutback on the professional entertainment and it is in house Animation team entertainment, ( did love the Irish Flash-dancers ) all in all had a good time, we go for the food and the pool.
