25th anniversary holiday

I would like to thank all the hotel staff for wonderful anniversary stay. lots of staff recognised us from the year before which was nice. Plenty variety of fresh cooked food. hotel it always kept clean. Would like to thank the maid Meusa for getting our room prepared. The day of our anniversary, we had a card and champagne delivered to our room, which was a nice touch. The refurbished pool bar and indoor restaurant have been nicely done.More

Wonderful stay

Returned last week from a weeks all inclusive stay at Seaside Sandy Beach Hotel. We recieved a bottle of champagne on arrival (my partners birthday), and the most beautiful room *1013. We had a power shower, walk in wardrobe, comfy beds, sky tv and a pool view. What more could one ask for? The food and drinks were the best we have ever tasted on an all inc, and we have both travelled globally. We also were treated to a birthday cake,more champagne and singing of happy birthday by the managers and staff at dinner!( i had emailed requesting a cake but they went above and beyond) How brilliant! The whole hotel was spotless and well tended and central to everything ie Jumbo, Kasbah abd beach. We did venture to Puerto Rico by taxi (as we went with another couple so cheaper-€25),and found this to be more scenic....gorgeous bay and scenery. The sunbed 'thing' is a bit of an issue it seems but we did not find it that bad....maybe the hotel could minimise the massive space used by the 'naturists' and make half of it it normal sunbed use? Put a little bar up on one of the levels? That would solve the problem maybe as it is a real suntrap on those floors....just a thought.... All in all....lovely hotel and staff....would recommend to friends, thankyou Seaside Sandy Beach for a lovely holiday :)More

Wow...beautiful hotel, exceptionally clean.will go back

Just returned from this fantastic holiday. We were a group of 11, adults and children (17 yrs to 11 years). We had fantastic rooms on level 3 overlooking the pool, very very clean, excellent maid service. Food was 5 star and we have been to many all inclusive hotels.all staff worked so hard, from the reception, bar staff, waiters, maids and pool attendants. My niece had her birthday there and we received champagne and a beautiful cake just by asking at reception. The reception staff are very attentive and informative, very good service. Loved the pool areas to sit around giving us chance to move fron the sunbeds for a change of scenery once in a while. While on the subject of sunbeds, I have read the previous reviews. Two of our party used to get up have their breakfast at 8.00 and then queue to get our sunbeds, my husband said this is a bettet option than getting up at 6.00 at many hotels we have been to.this wasnt a problem for us and it allows the staff to clean the areas which were spotless. The children joined in the various entertainment programmes through the day and enjoyed them. EXCELLENT HOTEL AND WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK !!!! Thank you.More

Great Family Holiday

This was my first all-inclusive holiday and I was not disappointed. We had a room on the ground level which slightly overlooked a main road but was set in a nice garden area and away from the evening entertainment so we had issues with it. Room size was good, wardrobes were huge and bathroom was lovely with a walk in shower only which was fine. Also a the safe in the room you can hire was big enough to fit a lot of items in including my iPad. We arrived late in the evening and had missed the evening meal times, however when we entered our room we had been left some bread, meats, cheese, fruit, bottles of water and a mini bottle of wine which was great. My family all found the food to be excellent with a good range of choices for breakfast, lunch and your evening meals. The toasters at breakfast time were a bit slow and had a queue waiting to use it them so maybe a few new toasters would help this. The freshly cooked steak, chicken breasts, squid and other fish was excellent. The meats were cooked to order while you waited so my steak was always cooked to perfection and the pepper steak sauce was great. Desserts were beautiful and all very well prepared along with several flavours of ice cream always available. The drinks included were plentiful and most of the times during the day was mainly water or ice tea to cool you down. At lunch and evening meals we would have beer, wine, cocktails, etc all which was fine. The scramble for sun beds is a bit annoying and I would be queuing up a good 20 mins before the 8:45 start time just to make sure I got three loungers together. This system is good for younger more mobile customers but if you had trouble moving at such a fast pace it maybe difficult, however the great pool attendant would always be able to hunt down loungers and umbrellas if you were really stuck. We hired a private hot tube terrace one day which was beautiful. This was on the top floor and had beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding areas. It had a mini bar and phone you could order more drinks with. Loads of loungers umbrellas and shower area and of course the hot tub!! This only cost €50 to hire for the day which in my opinion was excellent value as it was totally private. The beach is 5 minute walk away and is worth a visit, however be aware that during our stroll up the beach a section of it is mainly for nudist's which may be an issue if you feel uncomfortable around that ( the hotel also has nudist terraces but these are hidden away on higher floors so you wouldn't go running into them easily ). The upgraded free wifi was excellent and we had no issues using it around the hotel and the signal in our room was just as good. All in all we had a lovely holiday ( we stayed during the first week of July) and have said that we would use the hotel again when we next return to Gran Canaria.More

Will Be Going Back

We came here for ten night from end of July and stayed all inclusive. We had a family room and my parents had a standard room and both rooms were very clean and comfortable. The family room has a bedroom with a large double bed (two singles together) and then i asked to have two seperate beds int he lounge area (my two children would fight if had to sleep in same double/sofa bed!). The single beds provided for the children were fine. Dont expect to have a great view in the family rooms as they are at the side. My parents room was large and over looked the pool and in the distance could see the sea - very nice. The food and drink are superb and even offering known brands. The AI cocktails were also good. Breakfast, lunch and dinner all cant be faulted as something for everyone and the meats at dinner are fantastic. The only one issue is the sunbed situation, it is unlike anywhere ive been - bascially it opens about 8.45/9am and you run for your bed and claim it. You need to be in the queue fairly early. I am sure they have tried every other way of doing it and this is what has worked the fairest. It does save having to walk down in your nightie at 6am and go back to bed. We usually did 'deals' with the queue all chatting (luckily most of the german or spanish guests speaking english) about who wanted what seats. This does work but you do get the odd person (i want to call them more than that) who just pushes past as soon as the tape is removed and jumps the queue and just claims a seat in front of you. You then cant really have a discussion about it as they 'say' they dont understand and my spanish/german etc isnt good enough to argue! Im really not sure what a sunbed solution would be as everywhere seems to have issues but maybe this works the best - who knows! The pool is just the right temperature and isnt huge - do be warned that the pool does have a ledge that drops so it is deeper. ok once you know but a lady did have to be rescued when we were there as she didnt know it dropped and couldnt swim. The pool area and pool bar are immaculate and very comfortable and stylish and the seating area is perfect for during the day or to sit at night away from the entertainment area if you wish. The animation team are not in your face, in fact at times it would be nice to know a little more what is going on as there are no announcements. The surrounding area isnt that nice around the Yumbo but we chose to get a cheap taxi to maspalomas as we like that area. The beach is a short 5 minute walk away and you can pay for sunbeds. It is busy down here but it was summer hols. All the staff are very polite and helpful and always say hello - a pleasure. We will be going back and hopefully next year.More
