Just returned from a week at the parque Cristobal we were a party of 5 adults and a 3 year old. The hotel is the most child friendly I have stayed at since having my daughter. The apartments are very clean and well equipped. Even though we were all inclusive there was a fridge, plates, kettle, toaster and oven which would have been really useful with younger children and babies for milk etc. The apartment's all had their own sunbeds for use when you want some peace and quiet or the children are having naps out of the sun. Our room was quite hot as the fans could only go on a slow setting but think that was just ours as my sister complained of it being a bit cold at night.
The food has had mixed reviews on here but for an all inclusive buffet it was one of the best I have experienced. Not a massive variety of different foods each night but every night was different and there was always a good selection of really fresh salad and bread if nothing else took your fancy. One of our party is a vegetarian and usually has to survive on pasta and chips when away but was impressed with the options. My daughter loved the kiddies buffet where she could pick her own food but I did have to supplement it with food from the main buffet. Lots of choice at breakfast and drinks available all day. No problems with queues at the bar but it was pretty quiet when we were there. There is even a park next to the restaurant so if you sit outside the kids can play while you finish your dinner and you can see them.
Pools are really clean and baby pools are brilliant. Pool entertainment is your usual stuff but the teams were not pushy when we didn't want to join in.
We traveled with Thomas cook and the kids club staff were lovely and clubs run most days 10 - 2 and parties some evenings.
Evening entertainment is pretty cheesy and kid focused but that's what you expect from a hotel like this.
Only issue is the distance from the beach and the buses are not very frequent.
Would definitely recommend for families with young children probably not the hotel for you if you want a quiet child free holiday. Am considering returning next year as it is so baby friendly!

First trip to Gran Canaria and I chose this hotel based on other reviews from Trip Advisor and also Thomas Cook.

Important things first, bungalow style accommodation regardless of board basis this is great lots of personal space. Small terrace with garden table and sunbeds so you can chill out by your room if you don't want to be by the pool.

We went all inclusive. Set times for meals, breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks, tea and cakes, evening meals. Food was plentiful and a good selection. Amazing salad bar each night and hot food there was always a choice of fish and meat something for everyone but if you don't like to try new foods you may find it a bit repetitive. Self service for local beers, wine soft drinks and coffee

Bungalows were clean and came with all the basics lounge with TV BBC and ITV channels. Kitchenette came with coffee maker kettle toaster microwave kettle electric 2 plate hob and basic kitchen utensils and plates.

Hotel is set up as a family resort but as we went out of resort it was still suitable for people without kids.

Like some of the reviews state it is not a UK only hotel Thomas Cook are the only UK holiday operator in this resort, TUI ( thomsons) are a big part of this hotel so lots of Germans, Dutch and Scandinavian also lots of Spanish. This meant that some of the entertainment and kids activities were translated into at least 3 languages, not a problem for us.

Location wise it was a 15 min walk down to the beach or you can use the hotel shuttle service. Main shopping Mall Yumbo Centre is 5 mins away, bought perfume from one of the smaller outlets as prices were much better 39euro for 125ml of jean paul gaultier Which is about £33 same bottle in the UK is about £50.

All in all it suited us for what we needed and would go back again to the same hotel

Just returned from a fantastic holiday at parque cristobal and had a fab time! This was our first family holiday with our son who is 23mths. After extensive searches through all the holiday destinations we decided on here. Its ideal staying in the bungalow and having all inclusive facility. I liked that you had a small kitchen as well with fridge, microwave and hobs. They also supplied toaster and kettle. The bungalows were very clean and comfortable with tv which had cbeebies, tinypop and dusney channel which i was very happy to have. The gardens and pools were great with slides and play part. My son also loved the playpark where he enjoyed the chute. There was a sheltered area for kids club which he was too young to go to but was welcomed by the reps and enjoyed playing eith the building blocks and games. We ate in restaurant everyday where there was a good variety to choose from with a kiddies section also! I enjoyed that there were lots of kids of all ages so when my son was having grumpy moments you never felt embarrassed or had people look at you as everyone understood as full of families! As for the nighttime entertainment i cannot really comment as we put pur son to bed early and had a few drinks on the terrace as we preferred to keep our energy for during the day as lots to do. Would definately recommend and we hope to go back again next year!

Had a decent plane journey flying to Gran Canaria, when we got off we went to get on the bus and met a lovely Thomas Cook rep called Chloe who talked us through everything whilst on the way to our hotel, Parque Cristobal. She got off with us (as she worked in the hotel) and we checked in, we had a very good receptionist check us in who had a fast service and was very helpful, we got to our room which was spotless and good amount of space, we spent the rest of the day in the pool and got ready for the evening entertainment that night with the thomas cook entertainment team and kids club. They are all so talented and active, constantly in touch with their visitors, and they put on a great performance every time they were on stage! The restaurant was lovely and had a great variety of food, always something different and lots of choices! It was nice to try new foods. The pool areas were always very clean and suitable for everyone (even the disabled) it was all in all a fantastic holiday, Chloe was very helpful throughout the two weeks we were there and we became very good friends! she was always very smiley and happy and interacted well with her customers. She takes her job very seriously and from what i seen i think that she deserves a promotion.I have nothing bad to say at all! Very emotional leaving the parque cristobal, we will definitely be back! Thank You for such an amazing holiday!
