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.

Very clean comfortable & well maintained.
Just so many shortfalls and made to pay for things others provide free. Staff friendly but only interested in tip. Sorry but there are lots of better hotels around. Those who have given better reviews look around.Would I go back. No. (We had a nice holiday but hotel did not contribute other than a base).
Location. Furthest away of any Maspalomas hotels. Although flat area still takes 40 minutes to get to beach. Or use taxi. There is a courtesy bus but its hours of operation only 6 hours. A day on the beach means have to walk at least one way.
Pool bar ridiculously expensive for cheap local brews. Waiter very rude only one speed and when tried to pay had to threaten him with walking out before he took payment. Food not restaurant standard but restaurant prices. Heated area of pool. Yeah right, just. Still too cold.
TV. £3 or £2 per day for free TV everywhere else. Extortionate. Oh you can have a xxx channel. If that floats your boat.
Biggest problem. Cats. Ferrel cats with worms so probably have fleas. You can't open doors or windows without they are in. Not their faults poor things some people do encourage them. Oh cat pee smell in places.
Kitchenette. No grill or oven. Yes there is a basic microwave but no microwave dishes. There again local supermarkets don't do readymeals really. Can't really cook much other tan fried or boiled.
Oh air con not used by us but only in bedroom n of course at extra charge.

Room Tip: Some rooms get sun on terrace. Seemed to us those who stayed 2 weeks or more get them.

little late on this one but here goes. Stayed here back in dec and enjoyed the winter sunshine(averaging 23 degrees),tho can be colder in the evenings.great size pool but can be cold in winter months.have stayed here on five different occasions before..even as far back when it was named the princess bungalows.was my first ever holidy location so prob a bit biased. yes its out of the way,but thats how i wanted it..just far enough away from playa del ingles centre.Faro shopping centre is only a 15 min stroll..tho taxis are very cheap in gran canaria for short journeys. the usual pool bar snacks are available,along with the indoor restaraunt.Beach is about a half hour walk but again taxis no problem.small shop on site for the essentials.sept temperature is a higher 38 ish degrees..sometimes higher,and around 28 in the evenings. If heavy nightlife is your scene then this resort may be too quiet for you,but is still a good quiet base to explore around the area.aqua sur waterpark is only about 9 mins by taxi also.will probably come back here at some stage

Just returned from a 2 week January break. We booked at the last minute so we didn't research the complex before we got there. I have to say it far exceeded our expectations and would recommend it to anyone. The complex was clean and tidy although if you don't like cats this is not the place for you. There are lots of them about but they didn't bother us. We were self catering which I think was a good thing as the food in the main restaurant was very basic and quite expensive. The poolside bar was much better. The bungalows were very spacious and well equipped although I think if there had been 4 people staying they would be very cramped. They were cleaned almost every day and towels and sheets changed on a regular basis. All the staff were first class and most helpful especially on reception. While we were there it was nowhere near full so there was plenty of room around the pool and plenty of sunbeds. All in all a wonderful winter break and we will look to book again next year

Room Tip: Rooms nearer the pool have the most sun those at the back are quite shady

Booked this complex at last minute to celebrate my partner's birthday. Not our first choice but glad it turned out to be this place to stay. Very clean and the site is very well maintained. Good swimming pools. One heated and a great one for kids. Also a Jacuzzi. Plenty of places to lie out. Pool bar good and staff very friendly. Especially Jonette and Paco. Food basic but happy hour good idea. Entertainment very good. Recommend shows with birds and animals. Complex is sited well to explore this beautiful island.

Just come back from here .As with all the other reviews a little bit out of the way but 3/4 Euros to go to Melanoris and Ingles.Free Beach Bus .The bus stop just across the road to Puerto Rico .Which only cost 9 Euros for the 2 of us, and they run every 15 mins.Bungalows were well equipped for self catering although we went half board .Although not a lot of choice I'm sure you could find something to eat .Although there are restaurants in the Faro Centre within walking distance.Staff very friendly and willing to help .Pool area is probably one of the best and largest I have seen .
