“Very tired decor and poor location for self catering apartment”
Reviewed 11 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

person found this review helpful

The accommodation is on quite a steep hill to go to and from the beach.There were very few supermarkets available and what supermarkets there were had very little choice available. So if you were self catering you had to go to Puerto Rico for your groceries. Fortunately there is a shuttle bus to Puerto Rico which runs three times a day for one euro.
The prices for the meals at the restaurant were very high for the standard of meals received. Even when walking down the hill to the main beach area there were no restaurants to speak of, just snack bars.
During our stay the main lift to our apartment was out of order which made matters worse as there were a great number of steps. Fortunately a member of staff was at hand to help us with our suitcase on our last day as the lift was still out of order.
The standard of the room was quite poor and dated. The kettle blew the fuses when switched on, the hairdryer fell off the wall, the tap in the kitchen was very wobbly with no hot water and the door to the unit would not lock properly. It summed up the level of maintenance we found. The WiFi worked OK but was very expensive at 5.95 euros per day. In this day and age most properties offer free WiFi. I could not recommend this property if you had any walking difficulties as even with the lift there were still steps to deal with.
On the plus side all the staff we dealt with were extremely helpful and the views were stunning.

Clean, very comfortable beds, amazing showers constant hot water, everything that you would require was there In the Kitchen. Lovely large balcony overlooking the Sea. Maid service was second to none. Service from all Staff was polite & impeccable. Charlotte at Reception greeted us with a warm smile and lots of info.

“Great, quiet week”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Great for a relaxing break away from it all. We had a 2 bedroom duplex which had everything we required. The second twin bedroom is just off the lounge area with patio doors leading onto a large balcony. There is also a separate shower and toilet.
The master bedroom has an en-suite.
It was cold at night and the heating did not work but taking a bath instead of a shower helped to combat the chills.
There is 30 stairs to access and exit the apartment and a long walk on an incline to get to 4 steps before getting to the elevator. Not very mobility friendly but if you can manage the walk the view from the apartment is completely uninterrupted.
We booked this through an agent and later discovered that we could have saved ourselves over 100 euros by booking directly with the company.

“Small but nice in quiet area, perfect to chill for a week”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This complex is perched high on a cliff and has all the facilities you would need. However, it is not 5 mins from the beach, it takes about 20 mins. You may want to get a taxi back as it is a bit of a climb, certainly not suitable if you have walking difficulties. Also, Puerto Mogan is 10 mins away, by taxi, which costs about 8 Euros each way. Buses run regularly. The complex is actually situated in Taurito which is very quiet, with hardly any restaurants or bars, just a water park, a few trinket shops, a supermarket and half a dozen hotels. A hire car is a good idea, although there are plenty of buses to nearby resorts if you don't want to drive (driving in Gran Canaria is easy as traffic is light). Take a trip into the mountains, the scenery is stunning. The apartment itself was adequate although a refurb is well overdue (2nd floor). We had a few housekeeping issues but staff are friendly and helpful so things were sorted quickly. Food and drink at the bar/restaurant was ok but better dining options are available in Mogan. Note that there are some maintenance works occurring currently at the far end of the complex, near the tennis courts. I would recommend this place for a cheap winter getaway.
