A pair of mega-sized pools are this hotel’s calling cards – along with fun activities like giant chess and boules.
This hotel is linked to the Maspalomas Princess Hotel, and you get the share of its 2 whopping pools and handful of bars. Food-wise, there’s a buffet restaurant and à la carte lunch place.
Maspalomas Beach – with its famous sand dunes – is just 20 minutes’ walk from the hotel. There are some shops a little closer, plus more, along with bars and restaurants, a 5-minute drive away in Playa del Inglés.

Tabbing hotel well what can I say? The most miserable reception staff ever worse than in the sister hotel Maspolomas Princess and they are miserable and unhelpful. Food ok but Samie day in day out Hotel is fabulous and the chamber maids and pool staff are very friendly and helpful. Management need to select people with people skills for reception desks in both hotels or send them on a course on how to be friendly! They could learn a lot from the bar/pool/cleaning staff. I have been there 9 times usually half board but it was unbelievably cheaper for ill board this year but I can see why it was not good service I would rather go half board and get the better treatment. Overall a good holiday but miserable reception staff.More
We arrived at the hotel and yes first site it is very nice very clean, but found quite a few things upsetting, yes I know it says in the brochure long trousers for dinner, but in twenty years of reading this have found you are able to wear smart comfortable 3/4 trousers but not in this hotel, meaning my husband wasn't allowed to go for dinner on the first evening as he didn't have any and I wasn't allowed to bring food out to him either, so we went for a relax do nothing holiday to on the first day having to go shopping but as he is a 44" waist the only trousers we could find were jogging trousers which meant his 3/4 ones would gave been smarter, it advertises more than one restaurant but found that they are back to back and serve exactly the same very bland food with not a lot of choice, the staff at all other princess hotels we have stayed at in the past have been very warm and welcoming but not in either of these 2 hotels it's definitely a job and no time for nicer ties, the rooms were nice enough and clean when you arrive but found its make the beds daily and change towels nothing else. We asked about the fridge and the safe in the room told they were 13 euros each for the week and a further 7 if you wanted 8 drinks in the fridge, if you want to swop your beach towel it costs you 1 euro if you want milk or smoothies its 4 euros it appears that wherever you turn you have to pay extra for things, we booked into a four star hotel I've have experienced in the past ( including princess hotels) should be included in the cost. You pay extra for the holiday itself to get the hard worked for attention, our only saving grace is we would normally spend a fortune on tips but haven't found anyone nice enough of helpful enough to give one to yet. Not trying to put people off this hotel as to some I'm sure it would be lovely but please read trip advisor properly before booking here, we put reviews on all the hotels we stay in and believe this to be the worst review we have ever had to give.

Just returned from a 2 week holiday as a couple holidaying with with friends. First impressions, very good; reception area spotlessly clean and welcoming; Room, spacious, clean, but slightly outdated in appearance; Pool areas and grounds, multiple pools including a paddling pool for tiny tots. Grounds kept clean and tidy, pools need a good clean and some tiles need replacing. Mould seen round edges of the pool and sand in shallow end due to the man made beach area. No parasols supplied and no cover or shelter for young children in the sun; Snack bars, bars and restaurants; ice cream machine kept breaking down, other snacks ok, but pigeons helped themselves to pastries and rolls. Water is self service only, soft drinks ie coke Fanta all very watered down. Cocktails pretty made from a machine and awful! Bar staff looked unhappy and would often dissappear out the back leaving customers waiting to be served. Food very good, with lots of fish. Drinks in restaurant is self service, but machines very temperamental. Hotel situated in good location, with a 20 minute off rd walk to melonaros and about the same to the fair ground and market. Would I stay here again? Probably not, but equally I wouldn't discourage anyone from booking.More
This was my fifth visit to this hotel over the years and it never fails to impress in almost every area. The only part that let it down this year to me was the all inclusive BBQ lunch area next to the swimming pool that gave free access to birds especially pigeons and because the seating area was not cleaned regularly guano was on the tables and chairs. Which is a shame because the venue and food is great. This facility seems at odds with their dining rooms which are immaculately clean and the food terrific. I would not hesitate to stay here again and I look forward to my next visit.More
Absolutely amazing hotel. Do not read the bad reviews who slate everything. I was wary about this hotel due to reading bad reviews and I literally could not fault this hotel at all. Lovely staff who could not do more for you, so friendly and helpful. Check in for us was really quick, gave us all the information about the hotel such as breakfast, lunch and dinner times and where it was situated also along with the bars close by to reception. Rooms are really spacious and very clean, large balconies. We had a lovely garden view where we could also see the pool. The pools are absolutely incredible, the photos I have look as though I'm in the Caribbean lol. Alcoholic drinks served all day, slush puppy machines, alcoholic slush puppies too, such as mojito & Pina Colada, ice cream machines. Chips, hotdogs and burgers served in the poolside bar along with a lot of fresh fruit that you can grab all day. Food was lovely, so much to choose from everyday.. Pizza, pasta, fish, meats, paellas, salads, curries and soups. Lots of different cakes, puddings and ice creams to also choose from after your meals. Entertainment was good, lots of different entertainment each day/week. Shops inside the hotel such as a souvenir shop, beauty salon, clothes shops and a tour shop where you can rent a bike or car and book your excursions. Not much to do outside of the hotel that is near. Beach is about 20-30minute walk, but we stuck to the pool as we found this a lot nicer. Holiday world is about a 10minute walk, arcades, rides and a Ferris wheel. A few bars and restaurants there too. Taxis are very cheap though. Moonlight cinema near, films out before they are here in UK. I would definitely book to return to this hotel, had an amazing time! More
