“Lovely clean place”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Spent a week here from mon 7th April to Monday 14th April. Our bungalow which was room 78 was perfect. Next to the pool and views from the spacious veranda were lovely sea views and the dunes. Went with hubby and 2 teenagers. Our apartment was cleaned every day. We were given clean towels every day and the cleaner was fab. She didn't just spend 5 minutes in there she was very thorough and immaculate. Didn't even get one ant in the room. We were all inclusive and we all found it fine. A variety for breakfast. Was always replenished straight away. My son is a moaner where food is concerned but he enjoyed every meal. Didn't moan about anything. We ate out a couple of times but that wasn't because of the hotel food it was simply because we wanted to try different towns. Taxis were reasonable 4 to 5 euros to playa del ingles. Good night out but need to go out after 9 when it gets busy. Also went to Puerto Rico one night that was 20 euros but was a fab night out so well worth it. Local supermarket up the road very very cheap. Couple minutes walk. Ok if ya wanted to fill ya fridge with juice and snacks.
Staff at the hotel were lovely. (Gave the cleaner a tip cos she worked hard and deserved it).Didn't have to wait long for a drink. Local beer was nice. Nothing was watered down. Nice coffee machine all day giving cappucinos etc. ice cream available all day.
It isn't 5 star but well worth the money. Very quiet and relaxing. No fighting for sun beds. Could get up at anytime and there was a sun bed. Pool was freezing but it was very hot so didn't mind cooling down in it. It was very clean and you soon warmed up after a few lengths. Not much entertainment but was ok to have a few drinks before we went to town. Washing machine and drier for 3 euros. Not a bad wash.
We like somewhere relaxing through the day which it was perfect and a good night out somewhere different and we did that too every night.
Would definitely go back.:)
Very happy:)

went with husband for 10 day holiday, had a good break. Were very impressed how cleverly the bungalows are designed - very private. No one walking under your bedroom window or overlooking when you sit at the patio. Very generous size of fully self contained accommodation, massive patio. We were on all inclusive basis, but still nice to have a fridge and kettle available if you want a cup of tee in the privacy of your room.
Bar staff is friendly, drinks are absolutely fine. Was impressed with very drinkable bottled white and red wine - miles better than we had in other similar hotels in Canaries or other Spain.
Good size clean pools. Sunbeds always available. Free bus to the beach if you prefer walk in dunes and sea bathing.
Food I would described as "domestic" style, simple but good and abundant. Not quite English style (no pies :-) but always choice of meats and garnish.Fish every time - if you don`t eat meat. Good quality ice-cream always available for you desert.

I went to Gran Canaria together with my family and some family friends - a total of 11 people in the group. We stayed in this place because the photos of the place looked really nice, taking the price into consideration. We stayed there for 1 full week and had the all-inclusive package.

**Food and Drink**
The food for most of the time were poor, boring, unimaginative and a couple of times downright aweful. Served breads were old. Desserts were too sweet and nothing really stood out as delicious. The bacons served in the breakfast were probably the most appetizing - although bacons aren't really hard to screw.

Juices served in breakfasts were either the overly sweet pineapple or the tropical mixed juice. The cocktails we ordered were also aweful. For example, the gin and tonic we ordered, composed of 2 blocks of ice, 50% gin and the rest tonic. The cuba libre composed of 2 blocks of ice, 50% rum and rest coke. The other drinks we ordered were not better.

The restaurant closes at 10pm sharp.

**Rooms/Bungalows**
The rooms/bungalows were old. They didn't have air conditioning. The heated water was scarce (just enough for 1 person showering). The toilet was not flushing properly (at least the one in my room). The curtains, bed and other furnitures and decore in the rooms are both old (curtain was broken too) and old-fashioned.

The TV was also old and you need to pay to access the channels. You also need to pay either 6 euros per day or 15 euros per week to have wifi in your room (and outside the facilities) - the price is also per device.

Insects appear in the rooms as well even if the windows and door are shutted.

**Facilities**
The pool is still OK, but is also getting old. There is only 1 public toilet room for each gender outside of the restaurant. The men's toilet room did not have working lights nor proper hand dryers / papers.

There were 2 pool tables which you pay 1 euro to play 1 game for. That is quite cheap and good. There is also 1 ping-pong table which is free to be used, but you need to deposit 3 euro to borrow the rackets and a ball. There was also 1 air hockey table, but it needs some maintenance.

There were no gym facilities.

I saw a play pen for kids but never actually inspected it so I can't really say if it is nice or not. I can say that I've seen kids using it when we were there.

There was also a useable tennis court which is nice. Only problem is that the fences aren't high enough so when balls are sometimes flying high, they pass the fences and over the streets. Fetching those balls are exhausting. You can borrow the tennis rackets and balls from the reception with a deposit of 10 euros.

**Entertainment**
They had a bingo night and a karaoke night each week, but none were particularly popular for the residents, but to be fair I couldn't really say too much about these, since most of the evenings we were out and didn't really participate on those. I saw that they also had a magic show night, but I didn't see that one.

Else they had a couple of price/play machines at the reception. There was also free wifi connection in there which was good enough for browsing the Internet.

Not really an entertainment, but since I've already mentioned the reception I might as well mention the mini-store they have there. It also closes at 10pm and the price were a tad more expensive than the local stores outside (there is one SPAR supermarket 3-4min away from Vista Oasis).

**Service**
Aside from a very very few personel who seemed friendly, this particular point is actually the worst we have experienced there. Firstly, I already knew that most Spanish aren't particularly keen on speaking English, but I would thought if you work in tourism or service-oriented work you would at least make an effort to communicate in English if you expect your customer to come from non-spanish speaking country. This was not the case in there.

The people working in the reception were really unfriendly and a couple were downright rude. 1 even gave us wrong information about a tour bus which lead us to miss it and had to wait for additional 1 hour. Noone greeted us welcome when we arrive and explained what we could do or expect of the place. And when we left noone said goodbye or said their appreciation to us.

The old man who was on the reception when we arrived reeked of alcohol as well.

The cleaning stuff didn't clean everyday, and when they do it wasn't really proper. I would still see hair remnants and mudded shoe prints on the floor after they have "cleaned" my room. Towels were only replaced 2 times a week, while bed sheets not at all.

**Conclusion**
I would discourage people to choose this place when visiting Gran Canaria (unless you could not find any cheaper options maybe?).

The seemingly nice photos of this place you can find in their site and elsewhere are all deceiving. The place does not look like those of the photos now.

The place has great potential if they modernize the place and clean up a bit. Changing the majority of the stuff would be great and maybe sending them to English course - that or state in their site and elsewhere that stuff in their only speak Spanish as a warning.

Been to this complex two years running at Easter. The reviews I have read are very honest. Clean apartments, friendly, helpful staff and a good pool area with plenty of sun loungers. A few people grumbling about the food; however we never went hungry and always found something to satisfy. For the cost of an average meal in a local restaurant we enjoyed half board and accommodation for a family of four. Luckily there is free wifi in the Reception area that extends to the near pool area; that kept both of our teenage daughters happy. If you are after a quiet peaceful break then Vista Oasis ticks most of the boxes; the noisy areas are about 6 euros away if you want them.

Room Tip: rooms 10 to 15 have a good view of the pool and the sand dunes in the distance

Been here quite a few times (and already booked again). The place is what you get for the money - it is not a 5 star place but is not 5 star prices. Staff very friendly. Cleaning is really good for what the place is. Pool good size and always lounger available.

No air conditioning - but to be honest it is a waste - just get some shade or use traditional methods of cooling down - like jumping in the pool!

Travelled 02/04/2014 to 16/04/2014... Family of 5, two adults two boys, ages 8 and 4 and a 22 month old infant stayed in bungalow 116. Paid £1400 incl flights on Ryanair.
Have to say, although it has very bad reviews from some holidaymakers, we found it to be a nice bungalow with an amazing view over to Maspalomas and the dunes!!. Although there was 5 in the bungalow there was enough room for all, the balcony is very spacious. Downsides were 1. Towels changed just once in two weeks, and they were quite shabby could do with a new batch brought through. 2.Our bed linen wasn't changed in the whole duration, very poor customer focus in our opinion there...we stayed self catering and only paid for a few lunchtime sittings and the food lacked good variety, I.e. Always pork chops, chips, and minced burgers on the menu. When we tried the evening menu, it was pretty poor really and was not repeated by ourselves again. Besides , the local eateries just up the road were very good ( family of 5 eating well for roughly 55 euros a night incl a drink each ) Vista Bonita was our usual haunt, Bamboo Garden further up was quiet nice by the Mirador Dunas complex. If you are a meat lover like myself, then try the El Carreton for T Bone steaks ( cooked perfectly to order and massive ) ... Free bus is great to visit Maspalomas itself , but prices soar down there so put 20 to 30 euros on your evening meals down there. .the beds are on hardboard surfaces and mattresses are useless along with pillows that are thinner than pancakes, don't use this place if you suffer back trouble. I.struggled every night to sleep and found it very uncomfortable for the first hour after getting up !!! On the whole we got a bargain break , good price but All Inclusive would be a definite No--No if I went again too !! The pool area is kept really clean as are the Bungalows, and Yes the pool is not heated but it's invigorating in the heat of the day) , we had temperatures of between 72 on cloudy days ( only 2 days of those we had) to mid 80's on the sunnier days so great for the tanning lovers. You won't come back hating the place as it's a TWO key complex not THREE star like some tour operators try and sell to you like we were informed, but it's cleanliness and peaceful location were what we required and what we received. Job done on that score !!!!!

Room Tip: For views , 116 upwards look out to Maspalomas, fantastic dawn sunrise and sunshine all day on patio...

We booked this complex arriving 31 March-7 April as it was described as one level and as my mum is disabled, thought this to be ideal. The hotel is what would be expected for the cost. We booked with 2 weeks notice and paid 350 each including flights and checked in luggage.

Everything was exceptionally clean with cleaning everyday including clean towels except Thursday and Sunday. Checkout is 12 noon and AI finishes at 12 noon too, but they don't check you in restaurant etc and only issue you with a wristband no dining card etc.

Staff were extremely friendly. Food hot but was sporadic, some days 4 star quality other days 1 star but on the whole acceptable we ate out once by choice. There was more choice than I expected based on this being a 2 star complex so was pleasantly surprised.

Anyone wanting a cheap AI holiday this is ideal. It is located at top of hill but a free bus runs 4 times down to resort in morning and back in afternoon.

Overall I had no complaints and can certainly say it was value for money. If you want a holiday to do nothing or the kids would be happy by the pool or you are prepared to go out for entertainment then this is ideal.

Breakfast is served 8-10, Lunch 1-3 and dinner 638-830 with tea and biscuits 4-5. The bar is open 11-11.
There is an on site shop with sufficient supplies and bungalow has fully equipped kitchen. The is a spar 5 mins walk away and a very good steakhouse and Chinese restaurant 5 mins walk too.

I wouldn't go back but that is because I wouldn't return to the island not the complex.

Negatives

Sporadic food quality
Restaurant incorporated in with bar and not sufficient seating for meal times when busy as well as feeling like a seaside cafe
Entertainment sparse only 3 nights entertainment but this could be due to out of season

Positives
Staff welcoming
Very clean
Bungalows very spacious
Disabled friendly ( wheelchair access all areas, be sure to ask when booking) including bungalows and door widths
