“Perfect place for excellent holliday.”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We stayed there with our two children for the second time. We had a wonderfull vacation. Everything is just well organized and the staff is really friendly. The villa (Los Lagos) was spacious, clean, perfectly equiped and had a modern design. The bread hanging on our door in the morning is excellent. There is a nice swinging pool at the door. With the car we travelled along the coastline. Nice restaurants. We spent a holiday there in heaven.

Gran Canaria = "Choose your holiday". If you want your own peace, the Par4 villas around the Salobre Golf resort are a good choice. If you want to party, go somewhere else. We spent the Christmas and New Year 2013 here. For our family of five this was perfect and we didn't need to use one bedroom at all. This was our first trip to the Canarias and probably not last, we really enjoyed it.

The Villas are very smartly built on a hill facing the morning sun. No sunsets here (you need to walk all 50 meters to see them). The hill from is used do that even though there are many villas in this complex, none of the villas are visible from each other unless you go and peek around the fence. The build quality is very good with each room having their own AC/heating unit.

The pool is good sized and the kids loved it. Heating for the pool is a must though at least in December. There were some problems with the pool heating at first but they were quickly fixed by the very helpful and friendly staff. Good service!

The service includes a welcome kit with essential kitchen stuff for the first night/morning, which was a pleasant surprise, we had forgotten about it. The kitchen and outside grill are well equipped, however some of the pans and glassware was showing quite a bit of use already. I guess it is impossible to have the frying pans survive for long in a rental place.

The villas include free wifi that is provided by a small wifi access point which connects to 3g network. I would not try streaming video over it but it suffices for everything else. And once you realize you can actually take the wifi dongle with you and then you have free internet around the island, it really starts to make sense..

What else. I would say renting a car is compulsory. The whole Salobre Golf resort is off of a motorway exit and there are many places worth visiting around the island. Also, the villas are very accessible themselves, we had one person in a wheelchair with us, but keep in mind that the access to the villas is in a steep hill.

All in all I would pick staying at these villas over the 5-start Sheraton which was a few hundred meters away any day. While the Sheraton is nice to visit for drinks (we did just that), having your own private yard with pool can't be beaten.

Room Tip: Probably the ones up the hill have longer periods of sun. All the villas seem to be good choices fro...

Our stay was in mid November. The sun was very welcome, although not warm enough to use the private pool without heating at a cost of 20 euros a day. The villa was extremely well equipped and great attention had been paid to detail, wi-fi internet, docking station and cd's. The outside lounge and dining area was really well furnished. The delivery of bread rolls every morning was really appreciated as the villa is a drive away from the nearest Spar shop - 20 minutes walk. Although we didn't play golf it was well used and we enjoyed the green landscaped views. The one criticism, which I hope is addressed, the villa failed to have an information book in English providing details about the villa itself and out of hours emergency numbers. Would I go back - Yes - probably earlier in the year.

Our third summer back at the Par 4 Villas -- that says it all! Wonderful villa, peaceful, fully equipped, clean, wifi internet, fresh bread rolls delivered to the door each day, amazing view, beautiful pool and outside lounge/dining area, service was five star! Marianka and her team were outstanding and helpful with every possible thing. We had a wonderful stay and after three years, it's starting to really feel like home each time we arrive back in August! See you next year x

Par 4, Villa 7 is one of many villas on the Salobre Golf complex. You need not be a golfer to enjoy the villa and its position. We weren’t. We chose the villa because it looked lovely and it lived up to our expectations. We had a delightful swimming pool, warm enough to swim in without paying the extra 20 euros a day to have it heated. It was kept warm at night by a removable thermal cover and a pool man keeps it clean. The fixtures and fittings are of a high standard, appropriate to a villa at this price. Plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery etc. Admittedly we didn’t cook much, eating out mostly. The Salobre complex is set back from the GC1 and that means driving everywhere for fun (unless you are a golfer). Easy access to the playgrounds in the south if that’s your thing. More driving needed to go inland for walks which is what we did. But nothing is that far. It is less than an hour to drive to Las Palmas in the north, for example. However, inland driving is much slower. Lots of bends, narrow roads and quite a few cyclists to avoid. One point to note is that if you want to access the GC1 to go west, you cannot directly do so at the Salobre access. You have to go east first, take the next exit and turn back on yourself. It took us a while to work that out. That might have been explained at the villa.
Would we stay there again? Definitely for the comfort and quality of accommodation. Probably not for the walking as a more central villa or house would be better situated (but probably not as nicely appointed). All in all, a lovely place for a relaxing holiday.

Dear John,
Thanks for staying with us and for sharing your opinion. You were lucky with the weather so the pool got nice temperature, thanks god for the termal cover, it really keeps the temperature nice and warm, but believe me, there are many people that even the 26 degrees is not warm enough, hehe.
Regarding the exits to the GC1 you are right, when I receive guests I always try to make it clear, there is only one dirrection, but unfortunately, I cannot do it all, I will make sure, my colleagues explain it to everyone, it is really helpful info and I believe everybody should be told that, not to get confursed or lost eg. trying to get to puerto Mogan.
Only for your info, we have now lovely new houses in Meloneras too, to if you decide to come and stay with us again, let me know and we can find you something that suits you.

have a lovely rest of the day, and we hope to hear soon from you.

Best regards

Marianka and the whole team of villagrancanaria.

We stayed at Specialodges Par 4 for 1 week in March. The Villa is exactly as in the pictures with lots of attention to detail - the heated private pool was great - the garden is in sunshine all day, but because of the layout there is also plenty of shade.

Marianka is very helpful, going above and beyond and the welcome pack was good as was the fresh bread delivered everyday.

Would recommend.
