Advice on an apartment near to beach and shops. Can anyone

Looking for a holiday in sept/oct time. Never been to gran canaria before. Any advice on reasonably priced, clean and tidy apartments. Any ideas where to stay? We don't mind basic as you get what you pay for.

Names would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

1. Re: Advice on an apartment near to beach and shops. Can anyone

If it's just basic self-catering you want the Barbados apartments in Ave de Tirajana are pretty cheap. We never used them ourselves but friends whom we were with used them and thought they were fine. If a cheap All-Inclusive is preferred then Il Rondo is just up the road from Barbados. This is the hotel we used and it was a good price, not the best hotel you will ever use but clean, plenty pool room, restaurant has an adjacent chinese section, it's usually quite peaceful as families tend to use the Miraflor bungalows across the back, you can use the bungalow grounds and facilities with your all-inclusive card. Rooms are big in Il Rondo and they even have a small kitchen area with fridge. In between Barbados Apartments and Il Rondo hotel there is Apartments Playa del Sol. A friend and his wife have just returned on Sunday and said the place was spotlessly clean. The only downside is that the hotel is close the Yumbo centre so some distant noise in the rear rooms during early hours should be expected but if you book a pool view room (a little bit extra) it's quieter. These hotels as well as a few others (Iguazu apartments, Sol Barbacan to name just two) are all in Ave de Tirajana. It's a straight road down to the sand dunes at the start of Maspalomas, going left from here and walking along the pathway takes you into Playa del Ingles beach and bar/restaurants. The Kasbah, Yumbo and Irish bar quarter are all within 10-20 mins walk from this street. in various directions.
