Advantages very good location, excellent accommodation
Travelled here on 21st July 2006 during the school holidays with my husband and 2 children aged 11 and 14. We arrived late at night. We were allocated a 2 bedroom apartment in the 'Gran Canaria' area. The apartment was very spacious with a proper kitchen with oven and hob and 2 fridges. The balcony was to die for!! It was bigger than my living room with sunbeds and sun canopies that you could wind in and out over the area. The room had satellite tv with sky news and uktv gold and some itv channels. There was no air conditioning so it was a bit warm at night but there was a ceiling fan in the living room . The maids came every day for the 2 weeks we were there and changed the beds twice a week. The towels were changed more or less every day if they were dirty.The pool was fantastic and kept clean, it was so big that even when there was a lot of people in it there was still lots of room to swim. It was a salt water pool and did hurt your eyes but we got used to it very quickly. They were very strict with inflatables in the pool and pool security were there all the time, but that just made you feel safe. We did have to reserve sun beds as there was none when we went down on our first day, but it was the school holidays.
The restaurants were fantastic. We ate at the chinese 3 or 4 times, the food and service was good. On the sea front is another small snack bar where you can get fresh orange juice and home made ice cream. You can sit here watching the waves crashing onto the beach, fantastic view!There was access to the internet for the children in reception although they did have to queue sometimes to use it and there were table tennis tables in the gardens that you could use but you have to buy your own bats and balls.
There was a lot of security around these apartments with patrols day and night which made us feel secure.There are lots of shops beneath the apartments but there was no noise from them. Generally the apartments were quiet and peaceful.
The supermarket is just across the road selling fresh baked bread and all your essentials.The surrounding area is full of top class restaurants, Chinese, Spanish, Mexican, Indian, American and many more. We were spoilt for choice as where to eat in the evening.
The location of the apartments is very good and you could walk to either Los Cristianos one way or in to Playa de las Americas town the other.I would not hesitate to recommend these apartments to anyone of any age. They are fantastic!
