A pair of mega-sized pools are this hotel’s calling cards – along with fun activities like giant chess and archery.
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.

Usually take a city break in the UK but bad weather last year made us decide to go south for the sun and so glad we did. The weather was perfect and the accommodation was equally as good. First impressions always work and the reception/atrium area are very impressive, check in was very smooth and our room on the first floor was easy to find and spotlessly clean and was kept that way all week, the chambermaids did a great job, the rest of the hotel is equally the same spotless throughout. The pools are a very good size with plenty of space for all ages, there was the usual towel-on-sunlounger syndrome as there was a lot of Germans staying, enough said!! The food served in the buffet style restaurant was plentiful, varied and well presented and we certainly didn't struggle to find something we liked, being all inclusive we ate lunch mostly at the pool side bar which suited as after a big breakfast you really didn't need a large lunch but you could eat in any of the restaurants. We didn't bother with the entertainment as it's not our thing but the piano bar was the place for a few post dinner drinks. A couple of niggles- the cups used for tea in my option are abit small would prefer a mug ( like I said that's just me) also we both found the bed abit hard (again that's just us). It's about a 20 min walk into Maspolomas which was abit further than we thought but it's a flat walk so not too difficult. So all in all a really good hotel would highly recommend it and would return again without hesitation.More

Good hotel spoilt by sunning area
We went for a week 2nd to 9th February 2015. Reception area is smart gives a good first impression. Reception and check in is quick and efficient. Rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. Beds are comfortable and rooms quiet (we were in 0230) despite being quite close to the piano bar area. There is a flat screen TV with one English channel (Sky News) in the room as well as a safe and fridge both of which have to be paid for as 'extras' even if you are AI. There is plenty of hot water for the bath/shower and rooms are cleaned daily. Food is generally very good with lots of choice and several 'theme' nights. Fish courses are especially good and frequent. Only complain would be with coffee machines being often out of order or out of ingredients. Restaurant staff are quick and efficient in clearing tables. Evening entertainment in the piano bar is good with pianists/guitarists/organists singers of decent quality and plenty of room to dance. Bar service is delivered with a smile and generally quick even at busy times. You can get tea/coffee at the bar as well as alcoholic and soft drinks. The bar closes at midnight. There is daily entertainment in the theatre with tribute acts, dancers, magicians, jugglers etc. We didn't attend many but were told they were generally good. The pool area is a disappointment. The beds are old and uncomfortable and there are so many trees that getting a spot that has sun is difficult unless you get up at the crack of dawn to 'reserve' beds. Reserving beds is notionally forbidden but most are bagged by 8.00am and some the night before. One selfish couple even had a spare bed for a woollen doll while guests were hunting for a bed, There is a 'beach area' at the far side of the pool where the sand is actually very fine pebbles. Given the large number of cats on site using this area has obvious drawbacks. There is a bar in the pool area plus a cafÃ©/restaurant in the middle which serves snacks from about 11.00 to 16.00. The hotel is in a quiet location and fairly isolated but it is a pleasant 30 minute stroll into Melonares with its shops and bars.. .More
this was are second visit went both times in february , and weather not as good as last year, but the hotel was even better you can use AI at the sister hotel which gives you or options if the shows not so good in one you can go to the other club , the piano bar was good at night as well hotel staff all work very hard , every were very clean , food excellent, drinks good as well, it is a bit of a walk to the beach, but taxi`s are very cheap and are always just outside the hotel, just would like to say a big thank to the hotel staff we had a wonderful week as did a lot of people we spoke to many coming back year after yearMore
Not really all-inclusive
Had a week there in January 2015. The hotel is impressive to look at. It is huge. GOOD POINTS - the place is immaculate. The bedrooms, public areas and pool area are all very well maintained. AVERAGE POINTS - There are many pools and the gardens have lots of bridges and palm trees between pools but they are cold!! There are supposed to be two heated? Why just two? Most of the other pools were empty and even the heated ones were far from warm. The beds are very, very firm. I have an extra firm bed at home and this is like a water bed compared to these. I slept okay but my partner suffered. You get one long, thin pillow per bed, but to be fair, we asked for more and got them. POOR POINTS - You cannot get a sun lounger anywhere in the sun unless you go down in the middle of the night and put towels on some beds. I think some people leave towels out all night as they same people used to be on the same beds day after day. I love the palm trees but they are also sun blockers. If you think you are all inclusive - prepare yourself. You have to pay for... a clean towel for the pool, the wifi, the safe in your room, the smoothies that they advertise in the bars, the mini-golf. I checked the hotel website before we went and it said all rooms have fridges / minibar. They do, but you cannot open them. I need a fridge so I can store diabetic medication and I went straight down to reception to ask for a key for it. I felt like I was being interrogated but when I explained about medication I was given a key after paying a Â£5 deposit. The receipt I was given indicated that you could get access to your fried if you buy a highly priced drinks pack. The main bar serve non-branded drinks despite them having all branded bottles on display. We saw Disaranno and asked for one but the waitress had no idea what we asked for and eventually, after pointing out what we wanted, she said, "ah, Amaretto" and went to the back of the bar and poured a measure from something saying Amaretto, leaving the Disaranno untouched. Why display them if not using them? This staff we mixed. Some were really pleasant, others down right rude, so that averages out I guess. The food was mixed too but became very mundane. We actually chose to eat out on a number of occasions rather than get herded in. On one occasion we entered, ate and left within 8 minutes. Not good,More

We stayed here for four nights and I found the walls paper thin. Screaming babies and entire conversations could be heard in our room. There are too many people on the pool deck, jammed together to catch sun. Lol. Food was good, but good heavens, can you please serve some real coffee for breakfast? Definitely not upscale, but not too bad, either. So so.More
