We chose this location for several reasons:
1. Budget - it was one of the cheapest we could find for a last-minute budget holiday
2. People - some reviews said if you're English "don't go" - this, to me, is the point of going on holiday, to meet other people and learn about other cultures. It's true - the majority of holiday makers were Northern European but this was fine. I understand it's not to everyone's taste!
3. Location - I knew that Playa del Inglés was not my cup of tea and had heard good things about Maspalomas. We weren't disappointed. We ate at the complex for lunch most days - the waiting staff were very friendly, menu varied and well-priced. For our evening meal we either ate at the apartment (which I found to be adequately equipped for our cooking needs) or took a taxi (readily available and at around 5€) to the area around the lighthouse (El Faro) where there are restaurants to suit every taste and budget.
My only complaint would be lack of view as it is in the middle of nowhere but there's a free bus to the beach every day and the dunes at Maspalomas are definitely worth a visit.
This place would be ideal for families with kids as there are entertainment staff with different activities around the pool most days.
