... is what counts right? :)
We rented a car for a day and went for a beautiful drive. Scary at times because it was so narrow and you would accross a bus.... I closed my eyes for that part! The food was delicious and the people super nice.
Had a great time!
This summer I went to the Canary Islands with my friends. We did a lot of things there; we went to the swimming pool, partying, to the dune beach, and to the aqua park party...
Also, one day we went to one beach where there were a lot of water sports and we practised the motorskying, parasailing and a los of things.
Finally we come back to Spain with hangovers and our bodies very pained becouse we fell many ...

... the trip, last night we had fillet of beef with truffle mash and red wine jus and it was heavenly! She makes a mean red lentil soup and somehow manages to even russle up the best scrambled eggs I have ever tasted - secret ingredient is indian curry powder. Also on the menu is tuna carpaccio (the boys and planning to catch some fresh tuna on the way), my tasty chicken and goats cheese salad, and the skippers special recipe risotto. We have some champagne and chablis for a ...
... wash up, get dressed and undertake all those tasks that were usually almost impossible would tomorrow bring more sunshine?
Day 14 November Wednesday 14th, 2012
The day started slowly heading towards Madeira quite frustrating because we would not have the opportunity to stop. Motor sailing at dawn and early morning ceased when the Skipper said we should try to sail. There had been a suspicious vagueness about the actual weather ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dunas Mirador Maspalomas
Dieser All-Inclusive-Urlaub war eine große Enttäuschung; das Personal war unhöflich, ich wurde beschimpft, weil ich an der Pool-Bar nicht am richtigen Platz stand, obwohl sonst niemand bedient werden wollte; im Speisesaal wurden wir beschimpft, weil wir uns an den falschen Tisch gesetzt hatten, obwohl uns niemand gesagt hatte, wo wir sitzen sollten, und an der Discobar ignorierte mich der Barkeeper absichtlich, um einen hinter mir stehenden Kunden zu bedienen, der nicht zur AI-Klasse gehörte. Nachdem wir uns bei der Geschäftsführung beschwert hatten, wurde es etwas besser. Das Essen war meistens kalt. Die Getränke an der Pool-Bar schmeckten verwässert, und hier werden die AI-Getränke hauptsächlich serviert. An einem sehr kalten Abend durften wir die Getränke nicht aus der Pool-Bar mit aufs Zimmer nehmen. Auf den Zimmern konnte man sich keinen Kaffee machen. Die Zimmer sind schön sauber. Auch das Schwimmbecken ist sauber, das Wasser war aber auch sehr kalt. Zwar steht dort "beheizbarer Pool", aber Sie können mir glauben, das Wasser ist kalt. Das andere, größere Becken ist ebenfalls eiskalt. Das Solarium besteht aus den Liegestühlen auf der Terrasse. Trotz alledem haben wir unseren Spaß gehabt & einige nette Leute kennen gelernt, aber ich würde in diesem Hotel nie wieder übernachten.
I loved it here and it was well worth the money. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the rooms didn't have air-conditioning and it was a very hot time of year. I would recommend any type of person to stay here whether you're a family person, couply person or party animal!! I am the latter and my friend and I had a fantastic time and met loads of people in the hotel from Germany, UK, Holland, Poland, Spain and France!! The food was fine, the inclusive drinks were great, the entertainment was brilliant and everyone is like one big family!! It is also a massive hotel with plenty of facilities and just a cheap short cab ride to Playa del Ingles (the big party town).
To start with, I am VERY fussy, and my mother is even more so than me, we have never stayed in a hotel below a four star.
Me and my girlfriend made a last-minute booking through MedHotels and found a good rate. I seriously am still trying to get over my experience.
The all inclusive was very disapointing,
Dunas Mirador Maspalomas is on the surface a clean and friendly hotel.
Taken for a ride by travel Safe Holidays
I would like to advise holiday makers to take special care of the company, Travel Safe Holidays which is based at the bottom of this hotel. We were persuaded to buy a membership for a holiday club and paid a large deposit by visa to them. We were not given a cooling off period and have found it impossible to get a refund back after changing our mind less than 24hours later. I am still in the process of trying to do something about this. Although when you are sold the products the salesmen behave like your best friend it is now difficult to get to speak to them. Knowing what a nightmare i am going through I would hate someone else to be in my position. My family won't be able to take a holiday next year because of this.
A word of warning to any disabled or elderly considering the Dunas Mirador as a resort....STEPS! There are steps everywhere, and although there are a few ramps, any access to the Disco Bar where all the entertainment takes place is prohibitive to anyone with mobility problems. One of the accommodation blocks also is only accessible by a flight of steps. That said, the hotel is a modern complex of accommodation blocks, very pleasantly set out round an excellent, clean double pool area. There are more than enough sun beds and parasols, and hardly anyone 'booked' their beds with towels. There was simply no need.
Great all inclusive
Great food and a very clean hotel. Really polite staff and comfortable rooms. Only disappointment was the drinks on all inclusive, they were only available from the pool bar and ended quite early for a holiday. Watch for the con men outside trying to get you to a 2 hour presentation which is Travelsafeholidays really is a con.
Highlight - Food really great.
Me and my girlfriend returned yesterday from this excellent, friendly hotel. We went all inclusive with security travel and excellent professional company. Reception staff, pool staff, restaurant staff all friendly professional and spoke perfect english. It is true the hotel does has a number of germans but i saw no problem with that. The pool was spotless never seen such a clean smart hotel with a 3 star rating. The room basic but thats all it needed to be with the excellent catering. Food was excellent and varied. Only problem was the all inclusive ended at 10.30 pm at night i feel this should have been 2am. Entertainment varied in quality. Bus to beach frequent and on time. To be honest for the sake of three euros we used taxis.
