Parthenon Gran canaria
Reviewed 9 May 2014

This is a very small bungalow complex. It is close to Yumbo centre(nightlife) and to the beach - walkable in 5/10 minutes.
Bungalows are maybe a bit spartan , but they are clean ,lots of hot wáter and QUIET.
Only (small) problem - there never seemed to be anyone in reception.

Reviewed 27 April 2014

this place is OK if you are looking for somewhere basic to sleep and prepare your own self-catering food. The beds were a little short but comfortable enough. Advertised as being aimed at gay men, but actually it was quite a mixed bunch of people staying there, so not sure the marketing is right! Anyway, the bar was never open (usually at 11am - 12noon when the staff turned up to check someone out of the accommodation) and the layout of the complex isn't great for socialising with other guests. Biggest issue is the terrible wifi connection (€15 for one week / €5 for 24 hours). It was a struggle to run even the most basic of apps and would constantly require re-connecting. The staff claimed it was related to the internet service for the whole island, but this isn't true as other venues provided top-rate wifi connectivity. I've stayed at other complexes around the maspalomas area and I enjoyed this one the least.

The first thing to catch my eye was the list of rules. Thank goodness the one above the toilet telling us not to flush the paper was laminated ! The room was very basic. The paintwork was chipped and dirty.

We left the sign in the door asking for the room to be cleaned. It wasn't! Just asking for clean towels was like pulling teeth.

Guys you need to get the basics covered like provide soap, enough loo roll, washing up liquid.

You should also mention the cost of the price of the safety deposit box and if you are going to charge for WiFi it would be good if it worked. Also had to pay for a whole week's worth of wifi/safety deposit even though we were only there four days.

Having only one set of keys was also a pain, and a bit dangerous as the main door to the complex was locked most of the time. If only one of us wanted to go out, the other had to stay locked in. If anything happened (fire or something) it could be deadly for the person left without keys.

To cap it all we were told at 11am on our last day the cleaner wanted to clean the room, even though the list of rules stated check out of 12. Strange she wanted to make an appearance as we were about to leave. I think I've be generous with 2 stars.

Stayed for 10 days and did not like it.

The room was assigned somewhere on the side behind of all others even though paid like anyone else. Overbooked? Not even got offered any discount or else.

There has not been any cleaning in 10 days (!) unless the manager made a favor to clean by himself. The cleaning is only before 11 AM and the rooms must be vacated well in advance. Seriously?! Horrible smell in the room and bathroom. No door for bathroom/toilet, but a curtain.

The pool was not heated.

The lounge are is nice, but overpriced. No entrance for taxi.

Needs lots of improvements yet.

Stayed here for month over Christmas/New Year 2013. Been coming to PDI for years and never knew about this secret place. A lovely gem of a place. Staff very welcoming and bungalows well equiped. Situated smack half way between Yumbo and Citi centre which is only a 5 minute walk away. With only 8 bungalows and two studio apartments its Bar/Reception area has a Moroccan decor theme next to swimming pool. Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Has 8 bungalows and 2 studio apartments. Be specific what you want. Saw the Studio apartment and its...

Just a very nice place. Peaceful and just a short walk from Yumbo if you are looking for everything but peace :-). Nice people taking care of it and caring for it. As a gay couple, group ore single I could really recommend this place.

Room Tip: Al rooms facing the garden are the same and are nice.
