Honestly, after reading some of the reviews on here about Green Park Apartments I can honestly say that you get what you pay for!! Myself and my friend decided we needed a week's sunshine, & myself never having been to Gran Canaria before (my friend had been a few years ago staying at another resort) we thought we would give it a try. We were a bit dubious at first especially after reading some of the reviews, but we had already booked. Our ground floor apartment was spotless, the only thing we missed was a kettle and a toaster, but like I said you get what you pay for so you have to compromise so we used the microwave to make tea and coffee. We had cleaners 4 times in a week, we never left anything of value inside the apartment when we went out, the sensible thing to do is take it with you especially easy things to pick up like a mobile phone or an i-pod, they are small enough to fit in your handbag, mine went in my medium size handbag every time we went out day and night or you keep it in the safe!! We had clean towels half way through the week. One day late afternoon we went back to the apartment and the cleaner was in doing her job, we decided to go out onto the balcony so she could get on with her cleaning, she opened the balcony door for us and the lock broke, she went immediately to report this, within 5 minutes the handyman arrived and he fitted a new lock no problem, it took him about 20 minutes as he had to go for a new lock. The beds weren't comfortable and the pillows were like sleeping on a bag of marbles, but after a few punches to it it wasn't too bad. Like I say the apartment was very basic, but clean, spacious, what one can expect for a cheapy holiday, if you want 4 or 5 star accommodation then you need to look further and be prepared to pay a far lot more. We didn't see one cockroach at all. The weather was lovely for the whole week. The only cockroaches we did see was the lady's of the night walking the streets, but they only bother the single men, quite entertaining though watching them trying to seduce the innocent guy. Mulligan's Irish Bar do a fantastic well worth the money breakfast, and if you go a few times they may even give you a 10% discount card even off just drinks. They also have 2 guys on guitars 7 nights a week who put a good show on. Also try the restaurant right outside the Green Park entrance for a nice meal. Patrick's bar is another fun night out with Gerry the solo vocalist with his guitar, singing Irish songs as well as some Adele, Robbie Williams, all in key. Got to also try Molly Malone's for some entertainment (fun show) for adults, what a laugh if you are not easily offended with 'Trixie Lyx' 4 nights a week. People who complain should think about what did they do to prevent a theft, or if not happy with your room then complain to the reception, they have to do something about it as you have paid for their service. Finally there is a lovely English lady who works on reception, not sure of her name, but she was very helpful.
