Reviewed 28 October 2012

very good hotel, super-friendly staff, good apartments. the clubs nearby do not bother at all and the beach is close. also the swimming pools are great. there is a free wifi area in the lobby (and the pool).

negative points are that there are hardly any dishes in the kitchen and that the color in the jacuzzi was somehow too old or bad material so that it stayed on your swimsuits and destroyed them (color cannot be washed out).

We stayed at Walkirias for 10 nights from 13th Aug 2012.The Resort is located behind the Yambo centre and can be quite noisy of a night time. The staff are really friendly and helpful when we wanted to explore the island or book a taxi ect. (with great local knowledge)
The pool is not the greatest and could do with a bit of a makeover. The poolside bar is good and staff are friendly. The resort could do with some air - con
Overall we had a good Holiday and will return to the Island.

Room Tip: The higher you stay the quiter the room

The guest brought back a 3rd person without our consent. This person was a lover/robber of one of the guests. There was a fight and we called the police. We charged the guest for broken chairs, table, and new mattress due to a throw up and blood. We have pics of all this. The guest are not honest and are unhappy since the police booked them and we charged for the broken furniture.

Gran canaria was a very impromptu trip for us. We booked this hotel just 3 days before our scheduled travel after a short but intensive research. Before booking, we asked the hotel management for double bed (as it was our wedding anniversary). They said they will do the best they can. We got our double bed from the second day of our arrival. The hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant all throughout. The bed mattress, pillows and duvets were comfortable (unlike mentioned in previous reviews). Probably the hotel has changed it since.

Apartment/hotel room:- Large and spacious (Reception area, open plan kitchen, bathroom/toilet, bedroom & balcony). It has all the basic things one would need and is a great-great value for money.

Kitchen:- Has fridge, microwave, coffee maker, electric Hob, toaster and various utensils (cups, pans, knife, spoon, plates etc).

Balcony:- All balconies are pool facing with a coffee table and 2/3 chairs.

Pool:- Nice, clean and good ambience with a sauna and jacuzi. However we used nothing. There is also a pool bar.

Cleaning:- Was done every alternate day atleast (sometimes every consequetive days also), and so were the towels changed. The cleaning ladies were pleasant.,

Location:- is good with lots and shops/cafes/supermarkets around. The Yumbo centre (Playa de Ingles largest shopping area) is also very close. We just loved the food at the Indian restaurant Maharaja in the Yumbo centre. There is also a very good Pizza/gaming joint just outside Walkirias (dont remember the name, but it is down just 2-3 shops on your right when u exit Walkirias. My husband and used to play pool there. The pizzas there were awesome - fresh, tasty and super reasonable and I loved the coffee too.

Walkirias Cons:-
The bathroom didnt have a lock. However, it was fine for us as we were husband and wife.
The Bed room gets a bit gloomy, as it faces the main road and the windows were always shut.
It is noisy if you plan to sleep early (with some noise from Yumbo centre and the road traffic).

Overall, our stay at Walkirias was very pleasant here and we felt safe. We will go there again.

Room Tip: higher floor ---> better views and quieter rooms

This is a great little resort! A great price, and the location is even better. It is situated right behind the Yumbo Centre. There is a walkway down the side of the hotel which leads straight in to the Centre. All the rooms look over the Yumbo Centre, but I wasn't bothered too much about any noise. If you don't want a lively holiday, full of hustle and bustle, don't come to this resort!!

The rooms are very basic, but always perfectly clean. Theres a small bedroom with two singles beds. Yes, these are fairly firm, but some people like a firm bed, some people don't. In the kitchen there is two hobs, kettle, toaster, and coffee maker. It would be helpful to have a microwave, but I managed without one. There is also a fairly large fridge which is an essential. There is no air conditioning so in the middle of august the apartment became very warm! The room maids kept the entire hotel very clean. My room was cleaned daily, even though I was only expecting it once every 2/3 days.

The staff at the resort were all very helpful. So overall i would recommend this hotel, but as I said earlier, if you want peace and quiet - go somewhere else in Gran Canaria!

Great location, only a few meters from Yumbo. Nice and clean apartment with large balcony.
Friendly and helpful staff. Very nice pool and deck. Beds are horrible. Small, harder than concrete. Quite noisy as it is next to Yumbo with all the bars and clubs but that's the reason to go to Gran Canaria isn't it?. Bathroom is decent just as well as the kitchen area and the closet space in the bedroom. Would I go here again? Yes. Would I take my own inflatable mattress? Yes.
