... Vegueta. The architecture is Spanish and Canarian. Unfortunately, the Museum of the Canaries closed at 2 pm (on a Saturday!), but I did visit the Cathedral of Santa Ana and Columbus House Museum. Christopher Columbus stopped and stayed in the Canary Islands on each of his four expeditions, to provision his ships and prepare for his voyages of discovery of the New World (what he thought was India).
... up Colin in the process. Reluctantly, we walked over to the markets and had tapas for dinner. I say reluctantly because Colin wasn't feeling too well from being in the sun. We left shortly after and retired to our room for the night.
Sunday was a fairly low-key day. We FaceTimed, we played Scrabble, we ate a terrible breakfast and dinner at our hotel but enjoyed a delicious lunch of chicken Milanese and tomato salad at a little cafe. ...

... apartment for the next few days. Even though we were about 40 minutes away from down town we could STILL hear the Carnaval going at night! We didn't get down there during the evenings (the trolley lines can't even get there because the streets are SO packed with people!) so we went down during the days just to get a small sampling of the craziness. Traditionally everyone dresses up in some way or another. Ladies usually throw on wigs and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dunas Suites and Villas Resort Maspalomas
Me hospede aquí por una semana, desde el 5 de noviembre. Soy soltera de poco mas de cuarenta años y viajé sola, buscando unas vacaciones serenas y reposadas. Fue maravilloso: todo el personal fue muy servicial. Los cuartos, que están todos en el mismo piso y son como cabañas, tienen un amplio cuarto de estar con televisión y nevera, un dormitorio de camas gemelas y un baño grande, además de una terraza. El área de la piscina principal estaba un poco congestionada con las tumbonas muy cerca una de otra, pero había otras piscinas con menos muebles y más espacio. El desayuno era tipo bufé con mucha variedad para elegir. La cena también era bufé (también con mucha variedad) pero tienes que elegir para comer a las 6 o las 8 y cumplir el horario. No había muchos británicos alojados en el hotel, solo una mezcla de otras nacionalidades.
Ich war vom 5. November 05 für eine Woche hier, ich bin eine alleinstehnde Frau in den frühen 40ern, ich war alleine dort und war auf der Suche nach einem ruhigen, entspannenden Urlaub. Es war klasse, das gesamte Personal war sehr hilfsbereit, die Zimmer, die alle in einer Etage sind, waren alles Bungalows. Es gibt eine geräumige Lounge mit Fernseher und Kühlschrank, ein Doppelbettzimmer von guter Größe und ein großes Badezimmer mit Terrasse. Der Hauptpoolbereich war etwas überrannt, mit den Sonnenliegen, die zu nah aneinander gereiht waren, aber es gab andere Pools mit weniger Liegen und mehr Platz.
When I came to this hotel I did not know what to expect as I had only seen pictures on the website. I have to say that when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel far exceeded my expectations in virtually every regard.
We have just returned from a one-week stay at this hotel. We travelled with 2 adults, one five-year old and a toddler of 18 months. Our room was pleasant,clean and had the travel cot waiting. The bedsettee in the sitting area was just about suitable for our 5-year old. It wouldn't be any good for older children. The room was cleaned daily and most days we were provided with fresh towels.
I stayed here for a week from 5 nov 05, im a single female early 40s, i went on my own, looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. It was great, the staff were all very helpful, the rooms, which are all on one level are like bungalows, they have a spacios lounge with tv and fridge, good size twin bedroom, and big bathroom, with a terrace. The main pool area was a bit crowded with sunbeds too close together, but there were other pools with less beds and more space. Breakfast was buffet style with lots to choose from, dinner was buffet again, but you had to choose to eat at 6, or 8 o clock and stick to it, again with plenty of choice. There werent a lot of British people staying here, a mix of other nationalitys. We were only about 10 minutes walk to a beautiful beach, or the hotel had a free bus 3 times a day. A ten minute walk up past the family beach you came to a nudist beach, all areas were very clean, with plenty of sunbeds and beach bars. Entertainment in the hotel wasnt the best, younger kids had a mini club, they looked well organised, the kids looked like they were having fun. Maspalomas dosnt have a great night life. i really enjoyed my holiday and would recommend my hotel, for anyone wanting to be close to the beach.
Poor food, poor service, never again.
This hotel has a cafeteria style restaurant which is brightly lit and is staffed by bad tempered and ill mannered waiters.
On both days that i ventured in for breakfast the hot food was cold and there were no free tables, they were either occupied or piled up with dirty plates.
Our bathroom had a nasty smell of drains each morning and it took 3 days to get the room cleaned to a decent standard.
Nearly all the staff speak German but virtually no English.
When checking in I had to wait around 5 minutes while two staff had an argument. I would not go back to this hotel under any circumstances!!
Arrived well after midnight, reception were very responsive, guiding us without fuss to our 'Bungalow' accomodation, a cold meal had been put aside for us in the restaurant. Just what we needed after a long journey with the usual delays built in.
The previous person's review is extremely accurate. Would add that the complex has a lovely secluded feel with fantastic palm gardens. The rooms are set out in horse-shoe shaped groups so it feels like each small group of rooms has it's own private garden. It is extremely peaceful and relaxing with loads of wild bird life singing and flying about. The Hotel restaurant for Breakfast and Dinner is buffet style and really is pretty fantastic being both high quality and wide ranging. And you can eat as much as you like! There is a poolside bar for lunch which is also pretty good. The hotel is well situated being a gentle 10 -15 minute stroll from the beach through nature reserves on either side (there is also a regular bus shuttle). It is the closest hotel to the Beach except for the three or so five star the hotels actually on the front itself. The hotel clientele are almost exclusively German but don't let that put you off as this is probably a contributory factor to the food and service being so good. We found the German guests to be a little reserved but much preferable to being around your average Brit holidaymaker. If you do find yourself pining for the sound of English you can always take a walk up to the Faro 2 shopping centre where you will find all the usual suspects. Although the hotel staff obviously speak English if you try a little basic Spanish this is appreciated as the Germans seem to make no effort at all in this regard. The hotel has a number of good facilities including a gym if you can find the will and energy! Would definitely visit again.
Excellent & Quiet Hotel
A lovely bungalow style hotel with excellent facilities, staff, bars, resteraunt and 4 lovely pools. The hotel mainly caters for Germans and the food is also orientated this way, that aside it is excellent quallity and plentyfull. There are plenty of shops and bars within easy waling distance, a good and regular bus service or very good and cheep taxi service. Unfortunatly the Germans tend to go to bed at 10pm so the hotel entertainment is dreadfull but there is so much going on around it really doesn't matter and to be honest is probably a bonus as it makes you explore the area. The rooms are cleaned and changed on a daily basis and are of excellent standard all having a lounge area, large bedroom and on-suite bathroom. Definetley worth a return visit.
