After a good stay at the Axel Hotel Berlin at Easter we changed our booking to stay at the Axel Apartments in Maspalomas. These apartments used to be TUI First Choice Holidays Liberty 2 apartments. The transformation is excellent, modern decor, clean, airy and fresh. The Gym and Spa facilities are superb and after being to the area many times before, these apartments provide a sea change to the resort and will help Maspalomas modernise for the 21st Century Gay Traveller in context to other apartments that I have stayed in that are still in the 70s. The Matinee pool party was excellent and the music ensured the location stayed lively over the Pride event which one would expect. It is worth paying the extra for the pool view as good view across the resort in context to the road. As the apartments had just opened there were issues such as no international TV and the Wi Fi is very slow at peak times each web page could take 120 seconds to load, however between 6am to 9am when most people were asleep the wi fi was faster. A larger data pipe to overcome this is required as I mentioned when I was at the Berlin Axel which was slightly faster than the Axel Maspalomas. The check out was painfully slow, the staff are very friendly but they could not tell from the computer if I had paid or not and usual process was to collect payment at check in which we thought we had done. The Airport Bus 66 stops at the Playa Del Sol apartments a few minutes walk away from the back exit of the accommodation, there is also a night bus to airport that also stops at the Playa Del Sol we useful for late or early flights.
