“not for families”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We were here from 5th-19th may 2014 with my 9 year old son Thomson sold the holiday as a family of 3. next door to the main reception was a strip club underneath apartment was a brothel and across the bridge was a swingers club it was also gay pride week and a lot of people had come for this the resort is taken over for this festivle some of the peoples behaviour what they did in front of children was disgusting this was their week and they were there for a good time and to celebrate Thomson knowing this should not be sending kids to this resort i would never go back there is no entertainment in the apartments for children this is not a family hotel and would strongly advise anyone not to take children to these apartment as they are not child friendly either you have to hire everything out in them as well even high chair and travel cot i will never go back to this resort.

Room Tip: dont choose any in this apartment

We booked two apartments, one for me and my partner and the other was for friends. I had no expectations of the apartments.

We arrived at 10pm and was checked in very quickly with no issue what so ever. My first impression of our apartment was not a good one. I felt the decor was dated, the roomed needed a good old bleach and the furnishing were a little worn and used. BUT............

After a day or two, these really didn't bother us as the rest of the complex makes up for any other shortfalls. The rooms were cleaned every other day, (the cleaner even did our washing up!) The gardens and pool area are fantastic, clean and well kept. If you don't believe me, look at the photos!

This complex attracts mixed groups, from family's, OAPs, couples, groups, everyone is excepted which creates a nice relaxed/mixed atmosphere. Gran Canaria is a gay friendly resort, so if you are still "stuck in the dark ages" with outdated views, then this whole island is probably not for you.

We will be back next year!!! Great holiday

we arrived early morning at 3.40 am reception not very helpful.
apartment's ok basic had to have toaster changed as it was not working this was done very quick. rooms cleaned every other day and bedding changed the same, shame towels are only changed twice in a week they are not bigger enough and a strange colour to have orange!
bar staff friendly and very helpful bar food ok but not a lot of choice. Hotel is central for Jumbo centre but I am afraid to say at this time of year this is not a family complex due to it being Gay Pride week. no entertainment. I do feel that the tour operator's should look at when Gay Pride is on as advertise this hotel not for families this week I did feel sorry for so of the families with children, I have no problem but I do admit this year did feel that it was in my face all the time.
The lap dancing club next door is a big no no it does get nosiey as dancers outside early hours talking on mobile phones and they're not quite.
I must say the Thompson rep jen brilliant could not do enough for you sorted problems as very fast well done.
The hotel needs updating.
The gardens are well kept. the pool side was not cleaned until we complained about the sticky mess that had been spoilt on the Monday by a previous couple and this was still there on the Friday when we asked for it to be cleaned. This should be cleaned every day, the life guard was very quick to put empty sunbeds away at 5pm although the pool is opened till 7 pm.
Would I go again not sure.

Room Tip: if you want good room go lower numbers have garden views quiter room 28 29 30 these have pool view.

My second time here, it's like a home away from home. Friendly staff, rooms always clean just a beautiful place to stay. The pool is brilliant, other guests are friendly and respectful. There's always a rep on site so trips are easy to book...
