We had a terrible stay at el Palmeral. When we arrived we were unable to get into the hotel as the main gate was locked and the night guard wouldn't unlock it! Eventually got in and shown to our room. It smelt, there were ants everywhere and no windows...it was like the black hole of calcutta. We were unable to change rooms and were next to reception so it was very noisy. Our sheets were not chnaged for the duration of our stay.

The pool and pool bar were nice but these hardly made up for the hellish time we had here.

hi just got back after spending a week here all though we had a great time a week was enough the bungalows location was great nice and quiet short taxi ride from the beach and town allthough we walked most of the time the bungalows are a bit small and could do with a lot of tlc they could do with a total makeover the sofas how any one slept on them
they need a reward bust springs ripped covers what they call pillows a bit of foam with a cover we had room 85 was a right by the pool which i must say is one of the best looking pool area i have seen the bar is ok food was ok the chips are what we would call fritters without the batter we did have ants but a call to a member of staff sorted it out but it did take 2 go's with the spray and we did have cockroaches but you can get them in the best of places as well but i suppose you get what you pay for if you want 5* go some where else if you want 2* stay here maspalalomas has a big beach and a lot of very fancy shops and plenty of great eating places we never had a bad meal the whole week down by the lighthouse is the best we did go into Playa d Ingils it is to me a bit on the ruff side did not like it one bit a lot of traffic and loud we now have been to all of the islands and to me this was the best will go back again when the euro in more in our favour and i would stay at EL Palmeral by that time they might have done some decorating

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.

Just come back from a break in El Palmeral. This would be our second time there. The first time was 12 years ago and thats the reason we returned as we had such a lovely stay and found the place to be just amazing. This time however we found that after 12 years, nothing had changed, still the same furniture, appliances, soft furnishings etc. Our bungalow was very tired looking and all the bedding had rips and holes in it. The pillows looked like they had been tie dyed in yellow paint due to all the sweat from pervious occupants, and they had all lost their shape and looked like huge bananas sitting on the bed. The sofas had lost their springs and this made for uncomforatable sleeping. The whole maintaintence of the place was shoddy and needed lots of attention. Creaky doors, ill fitting windows, dirty tiles, cracked bathroom and floor tiles, rusty bath the list goes on and on. Our wardrobe had a hole in it and the door was wobbly, and the whole place needed a good clean as it was dirty and dusty.
During our holiday we were inundated with cockroaches and this really put the cherry on the cake so as to speak. I caught them running into the wooden door frames and window frames as well as coming up through the drains as they were in our neighbours bungalow. Every night we were finding 2 or more, we had to buy sprays and spray around the place every night before we went to bed. In the morning we would find dead roaches dotted around. It was horrible. I complained to reception and was met with yes we have cockroaches and theres nothing we can do. It was even suggested that I should book another complex. However, a man came that day and filled in most of the holes and a maid came to clean.
One good thing in its favour is that it is very handy to all amenities and it is a very pretty little place. The food at the poolside bar is very nice and generally very good service.
El Palmeral looks nice on photos but thats about it.
