If you aren't German then this place holds nothing for you.
It is very clean, lots of bars etc but has no authenticity. The only shops and authentic gran Canarian items I found were at the airport.
Beach a let down. Sunbeds crammed together 100 metres away from the sea! People just walking up and down! Sunbeds expensive at 7.50€!
No nice places to eat unless you want tacky, foreign food places which you can get anywhere.
Men only clubs just down road on the way to beach was not a great attraction for children to see. Very tacky.

Nice bars & places to eat; clean & well presented; long prom to the beach. There is a nudist area so do be mindful if you are easily offended! Also some street traders are a nuisance.

Great beach, we have been walking every morning with our almost 5 moths old son on the beach with the prem. Gret fresh sea air and big naps for him.

This has fabulous soft sand and is an ideal place for children to play on the beach, but remember it is also a nudist beach. (Don't know how safe the sea is)

This is a busy beach down by the front of the hotels but if you go across to the dunes its much more peaceful, you have to watch out though for there is a nudust beach!
