“Nice location and base”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

Book low cost holiday for 26 February for a week and didn't expect too much but were very pleasantly surprised. Had a problem finding the place as no instructions with booking paperwork but had a good ride around. Asked a non english speaking (or very little) policeman for directions who insisted in calling roundabouts squares which gave us a chuckle all week. Once in the right area we used our satnav on the phone and soon found it.
Nice location with clean bungalows and good maid service calling daily to empty bins and change of towels and bedding mid week. Cleaning very good. Nice site with lovely pool area. Bar food and Restaurant reasonable with evening meal €10 each for three courses. Pick your own meat and chef cooks for you.
No oven (only two hotplates) or microwave in unit and you have to ask reception for toaster and kettle for a €10 deposit each item but refunded when leaving. No A/c but didn't need it in Feb. Did check to see detailed fire instructions on inside of door and smoke alarm in kitchen area but unit is open plan.
Music Hall Tavern a must visit one evening usually Wednesdays. Suitable for all the family, very clean and funny. Reception arranges with coach transfer.
All in all a very nice week with comfortable beds and nice patio for breakfasts.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms look good but we had an outside unit which was lovely and quiet.

We had stayed at the Maspalomas Lago a few years ago and thought we would stay again as the price of the accommodation through Booking.com was so cheap. The bungalows are a little tired and could do with re-furbishing but they were kept very clean. We had maid service most days with fresh towels and a bed change mid week. The bungalows are adequately stocked with one of everything you need to self- cater although we only did breakfast and lunch and ate out every night. The television is free although no English channels and you can have a kettle and a toaster for 10E each but this only s deposit which you get back. Very unusual for a property like this not to charge. The only draw back is that there is very little hot water, especially if you prefer a bath but this can be overcome with pans and kettles of hot water.

There are 3 lovely pools and the pools and the large area around the pools are very well kept and clean.

We were unable to keep our room on as we had a late flight and the hotel was fully booked but we managed by lying next to the pool all day and then a very kind man on reception let us use the luggage room (ours was the only luggage there) to change in.

Last time we stayed the bar offered happy hour but this time there was no happy hour-shame and the bar closes early at night which did not bother use as we used the car to go out each evening and then sat on our terrace with a drink.

The Faro 2 centre nearby,which used to be full of shops, bars and restaurants is now almost deserted so you need to go to Maspalomas centre or Play del Ingles. The supermarket there is still open but expensive and we found a 5 minute drive to San Fernando to the large and well stocked Euro Spar well worth the trip. You can even get breakfast, churros or a snack in the little cafe.

There is a small mini golf; children’s 'play area, sauna and launderette.

All in all, well worth a visit and we did not see even one cockroach during the whole of our stay.

We stayed here out of desperation as nearly the whole resort was booked solid . As other reviews state the rooms are clean but basic,pillows very grim , but overall acceptable . The pool area was probably the best part of this dated complex as all other public areas were dirty, run down and even a little dangerous . Such a shame because with a little bit of t.l.c this complex could be greatly improved. I know you only get what you pay for but there is much better to be had locally within the same budget

Prior to arriving at the hotel I sent an email requesting a bungalow close to all amenties which would be easily accessible by wheelchair and allow us to sit by pool and keep an eye on my disabled mother if she was on the patio asleep. They replied promptly and arranged a bungalow in an ideal location.
We arrived to find a sign saying "back in five minutes". After 10-15 minutes I went searching for someone as it was cold for mum to be sat outside in a wheelchair. The receptionist had gone for supper. He may have been away longer than 5 minutes but he immediately left his food to come and check us in.
The bungalows are fairly basic but they are clean and come with cups, plates, dishes, cutlery, bread knife, bottle opener, frying pan and a couple of saucepans. There is a good sized fridge freezer.. They also supply a pack containing dish cloth, scourer, washing up liquid and tea towel together with sweeping brushes, dustpan, mop and bucket.
There are cleaners but we remained confused as to how often they came in. Sometimes 2 days following and then a gap?? There didn't seem to be any conistency to the cleaning rota. However, they changed the bed linen and towels several times in the 2 weeks we were there and the level of cleaning was high.
Buffet breakfast is Euros 6 per person which includes: tea, coffee, croissant, rolls, bread, cheese, cold meats, tomates, fruit, sausages, bacon, eggs with the option to have a fresh omlette cooked for you.
You can order from the pool bar menu at lunchtime. Prices are reasonable. 5 litres bottle of water are available from the bar at Euros 1.80.
Dinner is a buffet costing Euros 10 per person. There is always plenty of salad. Main course options varied between lasagne, stuffed chicken, meatballs and often a choice of fresh raw meat which you selected and took to the chef to cook on the griddle in front of you. This included steak, pork and fish. There are also desserts. The bar and restaurant staff are as excellent as the rest of the staff.
There is a gym and a couple of squash courts. The pool complex is absolutely spectacular. The bar is open until 10pm.
Washing machine and dryer are available. Cost was either 3 or 3.50 Euros per token, available from reception.
Faro II shopping complex which is a short walk away is like a ghost town but there is a supermarket on the lowest level. Huge bread rolls are 44 cents.
A fairground of sorts, including a big wheel is open in the evenings.
The very busy Yumbo shopping centre in Playa del Ingles is an approximate 20-25 mins walk away and full of shops and restaurants.
Unfortunately there were cockroaches in the bungalows and you need to be really careful about ensuring that you leave nothing out. I also washed all the crockery etc. every time before we used it as despite the cleanliness of the bungalows the cockroaches were still there and they can cause dysentery, etc. Yuk! Cockroaches come out at night. They do use something against cockroaches but they may need to do something more radical.
All in all, the Mapalomas Lago was extremely clean in a good location with wonderful staff and a great pool complex. Very good value for money.

This was our first stay at the Maspalomas Lago and it's fair to say it won't be our last. The bungalows although basic, were very comfortable and well maintained. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, the maids were in every day with towels changed every 2nd day and bed linen changed three times during our two week holiday. Taxis into Playa del Ingles are cheap (under 4 Euros) and if using the Airport Bus (No. 66) stops just outside the complex. The only one complaint would be the WIFI availability/access - the charge is 11 Euros per week, which allows only one person access at any given time and is very unstable.

Although our stay was over the New Year period, we didn't experience any noise problems from within the complex.

Room Tip: Poolside bungalows are set back slightly from the pool area which gives some privacy but still a gre...

One of the best locations in Maspalomas or Playa del Ingles, my parents are staying the winters in this resort and I wish so could I! Friendly staff who do their best to help even though you would not know the language or even English. Close to Faro II shopping center which is very quiet nowadays but you can do your grocery shopping there or have some Chinese food, and there's a fleemarket in the surrounding area every week or every second week. If you want action, go to Playa del Ingles, but here you can sleep your nights without disturbance. Each bungalow has a wonderful patio area where it's nice to have breakfast or dinner. It's quite a walk to the beach but you can sunbathe all day at your own patio or at the pool. The bus from the airport costs only few euros and leaves you just 100 m outside the reception so it's very easy to travel by yourselves. There are several wild cats in the area but if you don't feed them they won't bother you. I warmly recommend this place to anyone who doesn't want to stay in the heat of Playa del Ingles.

This was our 5th visit to these bungalows. Great value for money. Clean well kept. The maids are great and very helpfull. New this visit was a 10 euro deposit each for kettle and toaster, You get it all back though so no real charge. My sister had stayed the week before and suffered with no hot water and tatty furniture in room 23. But overall she agreed they were clean and well kept.
Maybe time to spruce up a bit.But then the price would go up!!!! We always prefer to have the safe in our room as these do rather than some places in the reception.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view or you could be at the back and looking at the back of front rpe. Even then they...
