“Excellent”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

From the minute my friend and I arrived to be greeted by Sam we felt welcome and at home. The attention to detail at Rainbow is amazing, you will not want for anything! The location for the beaches and Yumbo is great as everything is in walking distance and if you are tired you simply get a bus or taxi for a few euros. Antonio, Adrien and Sam are so warm and friendly, even though the resort was busy and the small team were running around making everyone's stay a special one, they always make time for a smile and a hi. On a couple of occasions my friend and I returned from a trip out and Antonio and friends were socialising by the bar, on each occasion we were invited to join in with refreshments and the socialising....we really appreciate this inclusiveness approach! All in all a great resort to visit whatever your tastes are, you can relax or socialise in a little piece of paradise! Highly recommended and I will hopefully return one day. A massive thank- you to Antonio, Sam, Adrien and the rest of the team for looking after us and I wish you every success for 2014! a 10 out of 10 from me!

My partner and I stayed here for 5 days and we absolutely loved it. The complex was fully equipped, clean, quiet, and the other guests were more than friendly. The bungalows are close to the Yumbo Centre and a quick taxi ride to the beach. The best thing about this place, however is the staff. They made our stay really enjoyable, even coming to sing me happy birthday and giving us a free bottle of cava - my partner had merely told them in passing a few days earlier that it was my birthday, but had not really advertised the fact greatly. These little details are what count and what make the difference between good customer service and great customer service. I would definitely stay here again, no questions asked. Keep up the good work guys and thanks for a great stay!

Dear Adam,
We are not the best chorus for singing, but we simply did our best to help you to cellebrate your birthday. Unfortunately, the day after started to rain, something very unsual here. We still do not know if the rain was caused by us singing so poorly!
It was a pleasure to see you and your partner so happy here.
Look forward to see you again for your next holidays.
Best regards

Amazingly clean, great customer service and a very helpful owner.

I was a little reserved going to a gay resort as a solo traveller. It was very friendly, amazingly clean and the owner and staff could not do more to help.

The only point I could pick up was a lack of English Channels on the TV and wifi was out of range(I believe this was being fixed as I left with a new access point).

Dear David,
Thank you very much for your positive review about your time with us.
We offer without extra cost 8 satellite channels, including two in English, two in German, one in French, one in Italian and one in Dutch. Last one is our 24hr gay films channels. We try to balance of sat channels based on the nationality of our guests. We will try to add more channels in the near future.
We offer also a WiFi free Internet access with a WiMax high speed link at the whole Resort. In every bungalow, coverage is good at the front terrace. Unfortunately, because of walls and roofs, it has been technically not possible to offer a good coverage inside the bungalows yet. We are still looking to find a good solution to improve the inside coverage of Internet.
Thanks again for your feedback and look forward to see you back soon.
Best regards,

What can I say except excellent. Just returned after a 7 night stay and didn't want to come home. From start to finish Antonio, Sam and everyone else made us feel really welcome and couldn't do enough to make our holiday a memorable experience. They are always at hand but stay out of your way. Facilities are excellent, clean and quiet. The complex is safe and secure and everyone you meet is friendly but not intrusive. They have certainly made the whole complex 5 stars. I made some great new friends and shared some great laughs. It felt like a home from home.

If you want to experience a great holiday I cant recommend Rainbow enough. I will certainly be going back and wish them the very best for the future. You certainly deserved your award and lets hope many more to come. Thanks for a great time. We arrived as your guests but left as friends

A very pleasant two weeks at the excellent Rainbow Golf resort. The complex was peaceful & friendly; perfectly placed with only a short walk to the beach or Yumbo. Our bungalow gave us somewhere quiet to rest, while the pool and bar gave us somewhere to meet and chat to other residents. The friendly staff made two quiet guys very welcome!

We’ve just returned from a fantastic 9 nights’ stay at Rainbow Golf and would wholeheartedly recommend staying here the next time you want to visit the Maspalomas/Playa del Inglés area of Gran Canaria.

We’ve stayed at many places in GC over the last 12 years and Rainbow Golf has got to be the best for all-round accommodation, facilities, staff friendliness and value for money.

From the moment we arrived, Antonio, Adrian and Sam went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. We had a free drink on arrival at the bar and received a bottle of fizz in the fridge to welcome us as well! Our bungalow itself was spacious, with a comfortable bed and plenty of wardrobe space. The kitchen area was well-equipped for cooking and preparing food, and the bathroom clean and in good working order – the shower (often something that can make or break a bathroom!) was great with good water-pressure too. It was also really good to have a decent flat-screen TV in the bungalow with a good range of Spanish and some international channels.

The gardens around the bungalows were well maintained and it was nice to have a terrace area in front of the bungalow which offered privacy.

A clean, inviting pool was complimented by a great hot tub and sauna as well – we couldn’t fault the pool area as somewhere to really chill out and meet other guests. It was incredibly convenient as well being able to purchase essentials such as large bottles of water from the bar too.

We made some good friends during our stay which added to our enjoyment of the holiday. Antonio and the team are clearly working exceptionally hard to make a successful holiday haven out of Rainbow Golf – we would unhesitatingly recommend the venue to anyone and we are very much looking forward to returning in the near future.

The bungalows very clean, the grounds of the complex are well kept. They are located in a quite but convenient area which is only a 15 minute walk to the Yumbo centre and about thirty minutes to the beach or a taxi ride will cost approx €3.

I have to say I am most impressed by the staff at the resort. They were very attentive and welcoming throughout our stay, but they were not intrusive, they genuinely made you feel welcome and that you were part of an extended family!

Upon arrival we were given welcome drinks of our choice and shown the hotel facilities. Our room was well equipped and we had bottled water and a bottle of cava chilling upon arrival.
Local supermarkets are a short five minute walk down the road and the hotel does snacks and sandwiches as well as selling amenities such as juice and water.

The added touches to the hotel such as the hot tub and sauna were very welcoming and it was lovely to sit in the hot tub of an evening under the stars.

It was my first time at a gay only resort and I would go back, the complex was quiet and you felt very safe and secure in the grounds of the complex as you could only gain access via key.

It was also nice to meet some other lovely guests at the hotel who we hit it off with!!

Special thanks to the staff Antonio, Adrian and Sam, very nice guys!!!

Room Tip: Bungalow 10 is a suite with better facilities
