Just to echo the last review, the location of these apartments is excellent for access onto the dunes and the beach or walking onto Maspalomas beyond. Simply walk through the public walkway past the Riu Palace entrance.The area of Playa del Ingles where these apartments are is more up market and quieter. We had a room on the first floor almost directly above reception and looking out onto the steps down to reception. Not ideal, we thought at first but we should not have worried as the road that this side faces onto is very quiet and we were not woken by cars or people at all on the trip. Perhaps a room on the other side looking over the pool would have been nicer, but our side got the morning sun and sitting on the very large balcony eating breakfast in the sun was great. In February the sun went down too early for us to have made use of the balcony in the evening anyway so it was fine.
The apartment was a bit dated as you would expect from its age, but everything was super clean and in the kitchenette even the drawer and cupboards were freshly lined. The beds were ok, not the greatest mattresses but firm enough. Plenty of wardbrobe space and drawers. Rubbish little pay as you go tv but we didn't even switch it on - better things to do in Gran Canaria than watch TV. I had printed off a map and checked out the airport bus route online so taking the €3 airport bus which stops outside CC Cita was so easy and then just 5 minutes walk to the Aguacates.
Check in was very easy and quick. The reception is only open 9am-evening with an hour off for lunch so if you arrive late you have to call a number. The pool area seemed very pleasant and clean too. The supermarket in the same building on the ground floor had very competitive prices compared to the larger and more numerous spar supermarkets in the resort - nearest one on av de tirajana or in the CC Cita just 5 minutes away. It was also just a 10-15 minute walk to the CC Yumbo for night time entertainment.
For the very cheap price (€55 per night) it was a great, clean, bright, airy and spacious place in the perfect location for us - right next to a posh hotel which costs considerably more, and straight onto the dunes. Also close to the Yumbo and supermarkets.
Now we have found this place we will not need to look for anywhere else when we visit Gran Canaria again. All round excellent.
