Negative points: This was our 2nd visit in 2 years and unfortunately it didn't live up to last years holiday. Last year there were only a couple of cats on the whole complex. This time there were 15 cats inside and outside the bungalow opposite us. Thomson staff said the cats are treated by a vet and you can tell as their ears have a little nick in them - not on any of the 15 we saw! Also they sell cat food in the onsite supermarket which obvioysly entices people to buy and feed them.
It's a shame as we have 2 small boys and felt they couldn't play out as much as we'd like as the cats were deficating everywhere in the mudded areas next to the bungalows and sitting on our patio table overnight, etc.
We paid for a larger room (suitable for 5 people). Be warned a "Sofa bed" in Thomson's brochure does not mean a pull out sofa bed like we have in the UK. It means you sleep on the sofa as it is - not great for 2 weeks!
Positive points: Plenty of loungers, nicely spaced bungalows, free shuttle service to beach.
You must visit Faro 2 Centre. It looks slightly run down but 2 fantastic restaurants where the staff and food are excellent are "El Nublo" (Father and Son own it and were lovely) and Toro Steak house. The steak and chicken in both were the best we've ever had.
If you visit the Lighthouse area be warned you pay the price for the lovely location but the food isn't worth the extra expense.
Overall Maspalomas is a lovely family area where locals are really friendly. The Reception and Maids were very helpful and friendly too.
