We paid around 350 euros for two weeks, booking it ourselves on internet. Bungalow nice, a little small. Small dining table for two, w two chairs. Corner sofa w small coffee table. If removing back pillows the two sofas could be used as extra beds measuring about 175*70 cm. Kitchen: sink, ceramic glass top w two radiant elements, small fridge. The kitchen lacked parts of the list that were in one of the cupboards, but they don’t charge you extra for the missing parts so you don’t need to report them. If you need anything from the list that’s not in your bungalow, they told us to ask for it in the reception. Small outdoor place, w two plastic chairs and a plastic table and two sunbeds.
We stayed there off season (jan-feb) so there were no loud activities around the pool area, as some other reviewers have complained about. Outdoor (!) gym nearby, “Maspalomas Health club fitness center”, 7/19/25 euro for a day/week/two weeks. Well equipped, many machines, exercise bike, Stairmaster, jogging machine. Ask in the El palmeral reception, they’ll tell you where it is. 5 min walking distance. Open mon-fri 9-21, sat 10-15.
Cockroaches. Not many, in fourteen days I assassinated 4-5, one definite/one possible place of entry: the gap between the windows in the bedroom, the little holes in the wood panel near the kitchen area (here we actually saw one trying to get through). The first we sealed with some cloth, the last one we told the receptionist about and they filled in the holes with some sort of sealant.
We brought a five months old baby with us, worked fine. They place a travel cot in your bungalow if you request it in advance, i.e. when making your room reservation. We were able to place an inflatable IKEA changing table next to the bathroom sink. Unhandy steps at the entrance by the reception (we had to lift the pram manually). One thing: One cockroach seemed to have come with the travel cot, maybe they keep them in some storage room, so you may want to check it for cockroaches (on the sides/underneath) first!
Shopping centre “Faro 2” five minutes away with a fairly well assorted, not too pricy, supermarket. On our first day we went to Mercadona in San Fernando (to buy groceries diapers and stuff for two weeks), but after comparing prices w the local supermarket in Faro 2 I doubt that the trip to San Fernando was worth it.
A taxi’ll get you to Playa del ingles for 3-4 euros, depending on where you want to go. Bus fare is 1,20, so if you are going just to playa del ingles its better to take a cab. Internet machine in reception, 1 euro for 15 minutes. No wi-fi on hotel area, in lots of places in Playa del ingles though.
