This holiday was very nice, the view over the hotel walls were amazing. The place is small and quiet which makes it such a lovely holiday. The weather there is great too. The beach is about a 5-10 minute drive by taxi, i would not recommend walking it, because although its not far, its all on a hill and the weather like i said was very hot. The food there was a bit repetitive but not bad still. The rooms are nice and roomy, however the air conditioning was rubbish, it was just them fans that spin round on the ceiling, all it seemed to be doing was moving the hot air around the room. Also, most of the nights there was no entertainment provided, and also no main kids club for the children, however the staff were very nice and a good old game of bingo in the afternoon was great.

I travelled with the girls to this hotel. The enterainment - Andriana is amazing. The staff are very friendly and the food is okay, very average. The hotel itself is in a brilliant location and is so clean. Our room was brilliant, very spacious with a good sized kitchen and bathroom. I would definately stay at this hotel again although it is full of families with young children. Would be nice to have a bit of music playing whilst your sunbathing, but no biggy. Never had a sleepless night apart from when I had one to many. Yeah this hotel is an overall brilliant hotel, friendly towards groups, families, couples - basically suits everyone.

Close to the Europa centre up the top or a short taxi ride to Puerto Rico. Lovely walk from this hotel during the day to the Amadorres beach and into Puerto Rico for some cheap shopping.

Room Tip: All the rooms are brilliant!

I stayed here 1 week in August-11 and was pleasantly surprised at the overall look of the hotel from outside; it felt nice, well kept and modern. The rooms however, were a little dated, with unbecoming red & orange colours that gave me a 90's feel. I arrived to find my balcony door handle broken, but this was fixed within 20 minutes after I told the receptionist, so well done. I always found the staff very friendly, although some of them were not english speakers.

My balcony overlooked the pool area & the bay, and was situated almost at the very top, so I had sun until it set; the view was breathtaking. The entertainment never bothered me, as it was usually finished by midnight, it is not nearly a loud as some say. Pool area: Spacious, but the pool itself was mainly occupied by kids, with no place left for adults, as it was somewhat small. Food: Plenty of it, both local, asian and full english breakfast. It was somwhat bland to my tastes, a lot of seasoning helped a little, but steak night really stood out in a good way, highly recommended. Not the best place to stay if you dislike walking uphill. It's a long climb up from the beach, but taxis are plentiful and cheap. The hotel staff ordered taxis for others, personally I walked off some calories from my all inclusive stay this way, so the hills are good for something;-)

Visited this hotel for my Stag Doo.
Found reception to be quick and easy to check-in, however we checked in at night and the night porter on reception doesnt speak very good english at all.

Rooms were of decent size and of usual build quality, nice comfortable furnishings with a pay per view TV in. Kitchen was again of usual standards, Cooker, Fridge, etc ....

The Walls between the living room and the bedroom didnt quite go all the way upto the ceilings so privacy in the bedroom is not ideal. The bathroom was clean and tidy and had a shower cubicle instead of a bath. Some hotel soaps were provided and towels.

The balcany is full length of the apartment from bedroom to livingroom and has 2 doors to enter / exit. One in the bedroom the other in the living room. The views are amazing from the balcany over looking the ocean and beach.

The staff at the hotel during the day spoke reasonable english and the rep was there everyday. They had a clothes show and sunscreen rep visit daily also. The pool was cold but clean and had no scummy residue around the outside tiles. The food wasnt great sometimes it was cold and the choice wasnt massive either. Breakfast was the same each day with the usual Sausages, Eggs, Bacon, Waffles, Toast machine, and various cerials.

Hotel entertainment at night was probably 3 out of 5 in scores. Okay but not memorable! Karaoke most nights also with the usual guests banging out some awful tunes!!!!

The all inclusive is great ..... when it comes to drinks.... You can have as much as you want literally as you pour your own drinks. The bottles of spirits are left at the bar and the lager pump is facing out towards you to pour your own. Have as much Wine, red, white, rose as you like. Empty bottles are quickly replaced.

The hotel is at the top of a big hill, there are taxis which will take you to the beach for 4 or 5 euros each way. The main area in Puerto Rico called the commecial centre will set you back about 12 euros return. Not bad if there are 4 of you in the taxi. Food is expensive outside the hotel so its a good idea to drink and eat before you go down to save money.

The big question is would I return to this hotel. ..... The answer is Yes definatly, Ive been regularly coming to the same resort for years at the same Self Catering Hotel and this is defo the better option for me. Im 36 and have a family of teenagers incase your wondering if its an 18-30s destination. As i didnt have my children with me im not sure about kids clubs etc ...

Hope thiis is useful information for you. Enjoy your holidays.

We stayed in this hotel in October this year, The rooms are designed for self catering so actually they are apartments consisting of an open plan room/ kitchenette, bedroom & toilet/shower room (no bath) The kitchen is fully functional with a large fridge/freezer which we found to be a great asset even though we were all inclusive, the bathroom has a hairdryer so ladies if your worried about excess luggage your dryer can stay at home, the TV is pay as you go with only three English channels so don't expect much from that, the rooms were cleaned on a regular basis & All the staff were very polite, the food in the hotel must of been good because I am the fussiest eater but found something every day the dishes are repeated on the second week which we expected so we chose to dine out, the entertainment was minimal but that was also expected due to us being there at the end of their season, the open bar was fabulous & never encountered a queue once in the fortnights stay, the location of the hotel was a little remote but the bus service was very good but you had to travel into Puerto Rico bus station to get other buses to the rest of the island which we did most days which did add up in bus fares by the time two weeks were up, we did meet some very nice people during our stay & have made some good friends who we are already keeping in touch with which finished our holiday off nicely, we are planning to go back but not to this hotel purely because of its location, we will be looking to stay in Maspalomas as there is much more to do there
