Had a week here 14th to 21st December... I would certainly visit this hotel again.
It is windy here....a short bus ride and you will find the wind is considerably less elsewhere. However the wind surfers were loving it, ripping along. A determined sunbather can find a sheltered spot on this resort or on their balcony. The weather was lovely despite the wind.
However, if you don't want to share your holiday with lots of families, children and babies then this is not the Hotel for you.This Hotel is what it says on the cover... A Tui family resort.
This Hotel is also branded a Nordotel... and the name contains what will possibly be another determining factor for some. This Hotel is Nordic first and last....... Lots and lots of Scandanavian families....Large self contained family groups and very few English speaking people overall. We found the Scandanavians very civilised but reserved, if somebody returns a smile to you, chances are they are British or Spanish.
The food and drink in the Hotel is excellent. .... 4 Star ...
The rooms are excellent..... 4 star.....
The service is excellent.... though it must be noted that you help yourself at meal times. I like this personally... What you want, when you want, however much you want... Nobody watching you, no questions asked very free and easy, if you want any peace at meal times there is an adult only section to the restaurant, as it can get quite lively meal times with all the families and children and babies.
Food, Drink and ice cream available all day long. Kettle and fridge in your room.
The animation teams works hard and the children are well cared for.
There is a lovely flat walk along the sea front stretching several miles.
The hotel is quieter after 11.00 pm due to the families settling down fairly early and at midnight it is very quiet. But the noise can be very loud until 11.00 with the entertainment booming around the hotel.
If you want to watch TV in your room the TV is flat screen with a lot of English Channels including Sky Sports. There is a lovely sea view from each room.
There are public bus stops a very short safe walk away and from these for a few euros the rest of Gran Canaria beckons. We really enjoyed days at Peurto Mogan and Maspolomas.
If you go to this Hotel with these expectations you will not be disappointed, there is much to commend it.
