Beware the sofa bed for a third person, ours would have been ghastly and it would have been far better to have had a proper sofa that one could comfortably sit on rather than a terrible sofa bed that was hard to sit on and probably murder to sleep on!!
BUT although you do pay extra at every turn for any TV channels or a safe key or a tv Remote realise that how the place works and accept it. We had a substantial online discount from Thomson and the unit and facilities were far far better than we expected.The heated pool is still on the cold side but we didn't expect one to be heated at all and I even swam once in the big unheated one. Tennis courts are good but nets a bit low and not adjustable (usually the case in most hotels ) and the reception staff and cleaners were excellent. "Entertainment" in the evening was not gripping but enthusiastic and we mostly avoided it... and yes the pool bar service and prices were very poor. Apparently the food was poor, we went self catering, but some said at the price it was worth it not to bother with cooking. The microwave was a combi so more of an oven than other reviews indicate. Cats were not a problem, most places in the canaries have them,keep the door shut when not there. You can ask for a unit that faces the morning sun, we asked for and got a quiet unit when we arrived which didn't get morning sun but when we return as we hope to we will ask for that too. Entertainment ends about 11pm so if you are not high season and do not mind loud tinned music have a room facing the pools and the sun in the morning. Go straight to Lidl or Mercadona by taxi on arrival to stock up with food etc,(5 euro approx. for fare) and you can take a no 1 bus from the road opposite the entrance to Puerto Morgan via Puerto Rico for 3.20 euro each single and be grateful you were in such a quiet pleasant part of Mapalomas where the cliffs did not exclude any sun... Would strongly recommend this as a quiet self catering base in a very sunny and warm part of Gran Canaria.
