Historical Traveler Reviews Cay Beach Princess Bungalows Maspalomas
Ich buchte dieses Hotel als Last-Minute-Angebot bei Thompson. Es ist kein richtiges 4-Sterne-Hotel, offiziell hat es nur 3 Sterne. So jedenfalls ein großes Schild an der Rezeption. Die Bungalows lagen dort alle recht eng aufeinander, aber es gab keine Probleme mit Lärm oder so.
Der Pool war schön und groß, es gibt aber immer noch Leute, die glauben, am frühren Morgen (6 Uhr!) ihr Handtuch auf die Liege legen zu müssen. Wir haben dort Liegen mit Handtüchern gesehen, die den ganzen Tag leer blieben. Bei der Menge von Urlaubern wäre es ganz nett gewesen, wenn das Personal dagegen etwas unternommen hätte!
Ich wurde von Ameisen gebissen, wie auch viele andere Leute, mit denen ich dort gesprochen habe. Denken Sie also an Insektenspray.
Zum Strand kam man leicht zu Fuß hin, er liegt knapp 3 Kilometer entfernt. Taxis sind dort recht günstig und in Maspalomas kann man abends sehr schön ausgehen. Wenn Sie Tapas mögen, dann kann ich das Banderas gegenüber vom Casino empfehlen. Brillant. Der Whirlpool war kaputt als wir da waren. Das Frühstück im Restaurant war auch nicht so besonders.
Had a brilliant time
Me, my husband and 4 year old daughter visited bungalows on 16th June 2007, we had a brilliant time. Pool was good for adults and kids, plenty of sun-beds and no rowdy people. We didn't eat in the restaurant but did get food from the pool side bar, which was decent and cheap, they do a take-away service also.
The Bungalow was really nice, better than what I thought it was going to be. Staff all really friendly, kids club was good and "Melissa" who did the kids "mini disco" was brill with the kids.
Next to reception outside there is a mini-market - very basic but you can get what you need for your first night, then the next nearest market is at Faro 2, short taxi ride cost about 2 eurs 30, there is a cash machine there also, and more cash machines at Holidayworld, which is a theme park across from Faro 2.
We went to Palmito Park which is a must for everyone whether you have kids or not. You can take the No 45 bus there, its some ride on the bus through the mountains, but a good day out. Aqualand is good too, plenty of room, loads of people there but didn't feel busy, again loads of sunbeds.
We are hoping to visit Gran Canaria again, hopefully next year and will probably book Princess Beach Bungalows again without any hesitation.
Visited Cay Beach 3 years ago. Excellent then, and still as good now.
Lovely pool, for kids and adults.
Did not eat on site restaurant this time but told it was lovely.
Bar snacks just right.
happy hour 4 til 5pm perfect to cool down.
Free bus shuttle to beach and dunes, 5 mins away.
taxis to local bars and stuff no more than 3 euros, always outside waiting day and night.
Room attendants on the ball, cleaned everyday. Towels every other day.
On site shop for all your needs.
Thomson bloke pleasant enough.
Kids club seeemd ok but we had no kids to honestly comment.
Relaxed atmosphere all round, and all staff very friendly.
Yumbo can be in your face or a really good night depending on your preferences (try the Restaurant Centrum in the sq. upstairs - it does a great grilled sole! Check Diamonds bar facing it downstairs. Paul is fabulous!)
irish Centre can seem a bit troublesome with a rowdy people, but its a good night if you it that way.
Maloneras front really pleasant.
Thats it really. Its a lovely place to be. Not in the thick of all the dreadful concrete jungle of Playa, but close enough to get a taxi for next to nothing. We will be going again next year for a visit.
Please note!!! The Thomson guy said that you cannot take any cigs and alcohol in the your suitcase when coming home as they check it at the airport and they charge loads when your case is over 20kgs. This was a complete lie. They dont check, and they count all of your parties luggage together (e.g if one case is 24 kgs, and the other is 16 kgs they just add it up to see if it balances out.)
Hope this helps. Enjoy. Its great!!!
We loved it!!
We really enjoyed our stay and was made to feel very welcome. The bungalow was very clean and you did'nt have to hire kettle and toaster this was already in the bungalow. The bungalows had everything you needed for a self catering holiday. The food at the complex was very nice and had a good variety of food all day everyday. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The pool was kept very clean as was the pool area. There was a good variety of games and sports available to everyone e.g tennis, football, mini golf course etc. We are hoping to go again very soon.

I stayed at this complex in July 2006. I had booked a last minute deal with Thomson (more last second as booked night before departure).
Was very impressed with the bungalow. When we first arrived we were put into a one-bedroom bungalow but were offered a family one after two days as there was going to be noise is the area as they were refurbishing the adjoining bungalows.
The family bungalow was huge and very nice.
Playa del Ingles was only 3 or 4 euros in a taxi and everything we needed was there.
This was the best £199 I have ever spent and would definately recommend it to singles or families.
I'll definately try to stay at this location again in 2007
Had a great time
This was our first trip to gran canaria and we had a really great holiday.I read some reviews from trip advisor before we went and it helped us alot on places to go and see.The cay beach resort was really nice the pool area clean and tidy at all times and there was never a struggle to get the sun beds not as though we stayed around there all day anyway.The staff around the resort were always helpful. We had a nice bungalow basic but everything we needed for self catering was there.The weather was really hot and sunny everyday.We got taxis to some places but walked to others or caught the bus which was easy and reasonably priced.We would definately return to the resort in the near future as we both agreed it was a very nice place. Very quiet in the evenings too especially if you go out for a walk very peacefull and calm not noisy even around the resort.
Just returned from the Cay Beach Princess Bungalows stayed half term week with my 8 yr old son and 19 yr old daughter, we stayed in a one bedroomed apartment which was small but adequate, the pool was brilliant and the staff very friendly and help-ful, the pool side pool was very fresh and cheap, the restaurant was the same. Very good quality. I suppose my only complaint would be better entertainment in the small bar but the children's reps and entertainment staff were very good and friendly at all times. My daughter and son said it was the best holiday they had ever had, the weather was 28 degrees and would stay there again, we particularly enjoyed Soux City and would recommend the trip to youngsters and adults alike. We ate out most evenings in Melonares which is a beautiful place to visit.
Just returned from 2 weeks here, and it is definitely not 4T as rated by Thomsons. Reception - basic, restaurant - works canteen, bar (extension of restaurant) - completely unwelcoming, bungalows - very small, but recently decorated and adequate facilities. Had to complain about 4 holes in door adjoining next bungalow (privacy and noise issue) fixed with piece of masking tape, until2 days before we left! Sheets and towels of very poor quality and old, my sheet was ripped and badly frayed, and bed was not made properly until I complained. Cleaning was very sketchy, both in bungalows and areas around pool.
The bungalows are a long way from anywhere, so having a car for a week was a real bonus. Taxi fares are cheap which is a good job as you need to use them alot, unless you're a long distance walker.
Despite this we had a good holiday with great weather and lots of great places to visit especially Puerto Morgan, and the Yumbo centre in Playa del Ingles at night. We wll return to Gran Canaria, but definitely not to this accommodation.
Ok for a weeks half term break
Stayed here with my wife and son (7) for the half term week. The pool is great, has a free form pool + 2 jacuzzis + 2 small splash pools, one deepish, the other very much for toddlers. The big pool is max 1.5 mtrs with shallow ends, so quite safe, and it's big. Plenty of sunbeds available.
No evening entertainment and the club reps are a bit laid back, and don't seem to enjoy what they're doing.
The apartments are spacious, a bit dated, but then you get what you pay for. The location is very quiet and there really is nothing else within walking distance (apart from Faro 2 centre - it's awful - don't go there!), but a taxi to Meloneras is only 3 euros, and there are some nice restaurants there with a nice prom. If you want it lively Playa Del Engles is only 4 euros away, and there's load there, but for us, it's a bit too glitsy.
So it was fine for a week, abnd we didn't pay too much, so we got what we wanted.
These bungalows were rated 4 star by Thompson but they were know where near ! The pool and grounds were very nice but the rooms let the place down. If you like a quiet or private time on your holiday you will be in for a shock by being in your room ! We could hear things going on 2 or 3 rooms away ....very embarrissing at times. The location is not bad , everthing is at the most a 5 euro trip in a taxi. Overall don't pay 4T prices for this holiday.

4. See the sights at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Make sure you don some sturdy shoes for your day at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria - there's plenty to fit in. Don't miss Casa de Colon, where Colombus took some time out between his ocean adventures, or the Museo Canario, which recounts the island's grizzly pre-conquest past. The 15th-century cathedral should also be high up your must-see list. ...
