We travelled as a family (ages 8 to 77) for 2 weeks 30.12.13 to 14.01.14 - lovely bungalows, housekeeping very friendly.........staff at bar less so (plus pizza inedible!) Apart from that, we prepared our own breakfasts and occasional snack lunches and ate out every evening. Faro 2 centre, although a bit run down, is about 10 mins walk away (or a quick taxi ride) and has a supermarket, about half a dozen bars/restaurants at the front of the building, but the real gem is El Nublo in the centre. Fabulous! I don't think I would visit here in the height of the season but it was just right for a winter break, the weather was heavenly. The pools beautiful, it was just unfortunate that the largest of the pools was not heated and despite one brave dip, unusable as it was extremely cold, such a waste. Having said that, there was plenty of room in the smaller salted pool (warmer). They also have a large jacuzzi, some bubble recliners and a separate toddlers pool which is kept warmer. Reception staff very friendly and helpful and the place very clean. If you go, make time to visit Faro 2, Faro (for the dunes although the restaurants along the front here over priced, go one road back and try the smaller ones there, Moonlight Cinema is a must, Palmitos Park and our absolute favourite for pre-dinner cocktails - Bar Diamonds at the Yumbo Centre.......on the edge of a square across which is an arcade that the kids could play in whilst you can sit back enjoying your drinks and still see them....if you do go, say 'Hi' to Aaron and the team, they are great. Oh, and don't forget to get the bus to Porto de Mogan, you can pick up the bus opposite Cay Beach Princess - it's the No 1 bus and cost 4 adults and 2 children 20 euros..........on the way back it's the No 32 bus (this time cost 24 euros) and we got off outside Holiday World and walked the 10 minutes back to Cay Beach. Porto de Mogan is nicknamed 'Little Venice' and has a fab italian restaurant (tiny and lovely) called Carraveggio, well worth the visit. If you pick Maspalomas, have a fab holiday!
