My partner and I have just returned from this hotel. Our stay was hassle free.
The staff were all very kind and one girl in particular was a big help in advising the best places to eat.
The hotel is very clean and very quiet. It's maybe 4 star for Spain, but it felt more 3 star for me. My partner and I had twin beds on arrival and the mattresses were very very firm. There was a hair dryer in the bathroom that wasn't particular strong. The shower was good and the balcony was nice. There was a TV in the room too if you wanted to catch the news.
We didn't eat in the hotel but by all accounts the food is quite good.
The safe cost €14 a week to rent, I would expect this to be free for a 4 star hotel, as I said it was more like a British 3 star.
There are two pools, one salt water and one chlorine. The pools were not heated, I think they are only heated in the high season which is Sept-April (I didn't know this at the time of booking), so the water was quite cold despite the high temperatures. The hotel provided beach towels for €5 deposit, this was really good and you could get fresh towels every day.
WiFi was only available in the hotel lobby, again for a 4 star I would expect this throughout the hotel.
The hotel is tucked away in a corner of San Agustin and is ideally placed for those wanting to access the beach (can be accessed via the pool). However, San Agustin is not the place to stay if you want to dine out without having to get a taxi. The shopping/restaurant centre in San Agustin is run down. We found ourselves going to Playa del Ingles most nights which cost €5-€6 euro one way in a taxi, you could walk which takes about 30-40 minutes which is quite pleasant and safe in the evenings as it is well lit. There were no restaurants in San Agustin that offered a light lunch either, it was mainly pizzas which was quiet frustrating.
The hotel was occupied by mainly older German couples so there wasn't much interaction with the other guests. It was very quiet by the pool and there was no sun lounger hogging from any of the guests.
Breakfast is continental (as you would expect when the guests are mainly German) buffet. The breakfasts were fine and plentiful for us but if you're a fussy eater you might struggle.
All in all, a clean, small, quiet hotel. If you like your peace and quiet and are happy to dine in the hotel this is the place for you. It's worth noting that as it is the low season I would say only 30% of restaurants are actually open in Gran Canaria.
I'll be adding reviews for the places we ate too.
