... about the important research he has been working on, I saw that he was very enthusiast and proud to have done the research and made certain breakthroughs. His research revolved around how the environment, diet, stress and other factors affect the genes of the fish. This then affects the overall meat of the fish which is intended for the commercial market. So the better the genes of the fish, the better the meat, the higher ...
... about the apartment, he gave me a pair of keys and I gave him rent for this month. The way he smiled at me is what made me doubt this whole thing, it was as if he knew something I did not. Once in Las Palmas the taxi driver dropped me on the right street but the building number was nowhere to be found, and then he drove off. I walked back some 20-25 meters and found the correct building. The moment of truth was if either of the keys worked with the front door. If ...

My Airbnb apartment was just a few steps from the beach. It’s on a side street off the Playa de las Canteras, at the north end of the big city of Las Palmas. There’s a wide waterfront promenade, busy with people, restaurants, bars and shops. If you’re a beach person, you’d love this wide, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Duna Beach Apartments Maspalomas
I stayed at the resort last October with 5 of my friends for a week and when we booked, we requested a three bedroom & a two bedroom apartment. What we got was exactly the same and being one the three lads sharing, we had to spend alternate nites on the couch, which was supposedly the third bed!! However, our stay there was a pleasant one and the apartments were kept very clean. It is a bit of a treck to the beach, but there are always cabs and buses on hand to ferry you there. The service at the restaurant was also a bit slow, but heck you're on holiday and the quality of what we were served was always excellent and worth the wait, but that's only a minor criticism.
Escape before Christmas
We stayed at Duna Beach Bungalows from 13th to 20th December 2004. We were pleasantly surprised with the standard of accommodation - great value for money, the staff we found to be very pleasant and helpful especially the shop staff. Duna Beach is certainly isolated but this is the price you pay for peace and quiet. There are lots of taxis available at a reasonable cost. The restaurant is of a high standard. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would recommend Duna Beach Bungalows to anyone who wants to escape for a few days.
We went to the Duna Beach Bungalows in October 2004. The bungalows were always clean and the resort was nice and quiet. The Faro 2 centre was only a 10 minute walk away and it only cost 3 euros to go to Playa Del Ingles and to the Maspalomas Beach. The Pool Bar at the Duna Beach bungalows was very good. The staff were very bubbly, friendly and made you laugh. The food in the day and evening was very good we all tried diferrent dishes and never had a problem with any of them. The pool area was quite big and there were plenty of sunloungers to go around. We would definately go back again. The only one thing I would say is to get rid of the grumpy man on reception. No help at all.
I was visiting the hotel in september 2004. At first my impressions were positive - nice clean bungalows with a small terrace, with nice surroundings and a friendly receptionist (the friendliest as it turned out, others weren't so helpful, as you will see later). The hotel is situated quite far away from most civilization, so renting a car is not a bad idea, especially if you want to shop at Hiperdino, one of the few supermarkets around with sane prices. There is a supermarket at the hotel itself, but as you would expect the prices are significantly higher. For some commodities, the extra convenience was worth the cost, though.
We went to the Duna Beech Apartments from 19 July for 7 nights. All your immediate needs are catered for in this complex. There is a supermarket, restaurant and a bar right by the pool serving food snacks and soft and alcoholic drinks from 9.00am to 2.00am, which are also the pool opening times. They have English music channels playing in the bar, which goes over the pool, so no escaping those annoying ring tone adverts I'm afraid! The staff speak from little to very good English. Look out for the bar man that's always shouting Whoopa (not sure if this is correct spelling but it means 'beautiful' in Spanish apparently!) Our apartment was very comfortable and we noticed a lot of them, as ours did, had a mesh material over the windows, which allowed you to have the breeze without the bugs! Speaking of Maspalomas is the single most place were ants originate I'm sure. There are quite a few but you can get some spray from the supermarket that will do the job.
Enjoyedthe peace and quiet
We booked this holiday three days before we departed, it was allocated on arrival, and with having children aged 11 and 14 we were a bit worried about what we would get, but thought the holiday was cheap enough and if the apartments were rubbish we would go elsewhere, but what a surprise we had, the pool area is lovely, and because it was April quiet, the apartments were small so we had two next door to each other, the maids were their everyday, it was basic but clean.
The bar staff were very friendly and couldn't be more helpful, (its a pity the reception staff weren't the same!)
It is bit out of the way but only two euros to the beach.
We had a lovely time and would probably go out of our way to book these apartments again.
We love the Duna beach
We go back to the Duna Beach time and time again. It is in a wonderful area, the bungalows are very comfortable and laid out in such a way that you have relative privacy. Recently the restaurant and bar have been closed but neighbouring complexes are very good. The area around is great for walking and rollerblading. The staff are friendly and competent, the reception area is absolutely wonderful and last, but certainly not least, the cats on the complex are the best in Maspalomas!
not bad visited 21st Feb 04 for one week. apartment was damp but that could have been down to the mixed weather, maids definately didn't visit everyday I think we saw them twice, and they didnt't really know how to clean, cobwebs under tables and chairs left all week. Beds not so comfy and als the sheets definately needed new ones as it was like sleeping on pebbles, very basic had to hire kettle and toaster for 12 euros (not bad price) these can be hired from the on site supermarket which is run by a nice english guy(except he was an Arsenal fan) and his partner, staff at the pool bar very nice and food (what we had) was good,this was run seperately from the hotel. Reception staff and hotel staff miserable, but watch out for the maintenance guy with the everlasting cigarette. my advise pay the extra go to Green golf fantastic apartments, Maspalomas great place quiet but convenient for everywhere but dunabeach not so good (this is our honest opinion only)
Beautifull surroundings and greenery in the middle of the golf course, close to but unfourtunatelly without acces to the near by dunes. Quite a walk from the nearest civilisation. Good for joggers and walkers as our selves. Clean and quiet (with not very comfortable beds) exept for Elvis and Sinatra visiting a couple of times a week. Or was it kareoke?
Hej, if you get a Hola or Buenas Dias back from the reception staff when you greet them Hello please let us know. Tell them also that excessive smoking is bad for your health. We do not mind though going back to Dunabeach some time again. Maybe our Spanish was not so good...
We had our holiday at Duna beach in September and the weather was amazing, around 40 degrees everyday. The apartments were clean and tidy and a reasonable size. There were maids that came in everyday to give you fresh towels, make the beds ect. The pool was a good size and reasonably quiet most of the time. The food was nice and well priced and served pretty quicky and was handy to have on site!! The only downfall to the holiday was that Duna beach is just about the furthest apartments you could get from the nightlife, which wasn't that much either. Just a few bars and resturants at Faro 2. It was much better to catch a taxi for about 4 euros to Playa De Ingles for the evening which they would call for you from reception. Overall a very nice holiday but you'll need to hire a car to see the rest of the island as there is not that much to do in Maspalomas exept to cross the Dunes!!
