Takes much more than the facilities to make for 4 star hotel.. where was the service?
Hotel itself was nice, facilities were good. Rooms were modern. Entertainment team a real asset to the hotel. They work so hard to ensure guests have an enjoyable stay. The pools are nice. Was good to see lifeguards at each pool, hotel is in a Good location. This hotel could offer so much more if they excelled in other areas. For example the service is quite non existent. Didn't really get any real welcome or a any departure service. Literally took our room card and asked room number and that was it. No thanks for staying, no hope you had a nice stay. Nothing at all. Reception would benefit from some customer service training. Reported a couple of issues in the room that was not working. Air con was not really working well - when reported was told someone would come to look. Nobody came as far as I am aware, as it wasn't working properly stillborn the duration of our stay. Mini fridge was not cold. Milk was going off in 1 day. When reported told it was a mini bar. Not sure what this means? Should this not be cold? Didn't really see much staff around the hotel or waiting staff in the restaurants. Food options not great for fussy people. I was there 5 days and had to eat out 2 as the food I would eat was chips and pasta. The pasta was cold, over cooked and stuck together so to enjoy a dinner went to some of the local restaurants. Which were quite reasonably priced and something I could enjoy to eat. The all inclusive benefits lacked for a 4 star hotel. I didn't expect having to pay to use the towels 1 euro each change, or the safe 3 euro a day. Cocktails are pre made, no international brands available. I know you can upgrade to all inclusive plus.. to include all these extras but for a 4 star hotel I would expect some of these things to be included. If they address the service, the all inclusive package and the air con At the hotel I would say it would be a good 4 star, but with this lacking so much I wouldn't say this is anymore than an average 3 star hotel in my eyes.

the rooms are in a poor state of repair the sheets were stained the air con was none existent it would have been better to have the fridge door open we had cockroaches and we was near the lift which made a noise most of the night the food at breakfast bas at best Luke warm so only ended having toast on our experience i would not recommend this hotel More
holiday time at margaritas
first time in gran can , great hotel ,but could do with toilets around pool ,but would go back to this hotel . staff very friendly and they were quick at cleaning up behind everyone and filling the food trays . and the all inclusive was help your selfMore
This was a great two week break. We will certainly return to this hotel again. Food was excellent. Location also central. A good local bus service and reasonable taxi fares. Plenty of sun loungers no matter what time of day you required them. Good value for all inclusive holiday. Meal times very flexible. More
Visited for a week mid September, first time in Gran Canaria. Stayed in the main hotel, room very smart and clean. All staff from Reception to Cleaners very helpful and pleasant, I include Gardners, Maintenance, Restaurant, Bar and Animation staff in this. The food was excellent, we did not experience any shortages. We ate in the restaurant, the self service snack areas and at the Aloha. There was no shortage of drinks on offer, with self-service being handy at times. Swimming pools clean and quieter areas available away from them. Didn't buy the ultra all inclusive: in my opinion it is both overpriced and unnecessary given what is already available. We played tennis, watched the shows and also walked the entire resort and Maspalomas/Meloneras over the course of the week. We used the free shuttle busses also, very convenient. Would revisit hotel but not particularly impressed by the resort.More
