Historical Traveler Reviews Vital Suites Hotel & Spa Maspalomas
Ou sont les 4 etoiles???
si vous recherchez une usine à touristes ,bienvenue! pas d'accueil en français,la restauration surgelée pas terrible.pour votre 1 er jour d'excursion attention(vous arrivez a 21 heures à l'hotel)donc trop tard!fuites d'eau autour du bar et du restaurant (tres dangereux.glissant) .aucune ambiance le soir.quel dommage,le cadre est pourtant magnifique.
Disfruté muchísimo de estas vacaciones, el hotel era muy agradable, pequeño, tranquilo y relajante. Las suites son enormes, y ¡las mantienen muy limpias! Las instalaciones excelentes, ¡con un balneario espectacular! Mis únicos problemas fueron el que sólo había un restaurante en donde cenar, el cual es a la carta, y sólo hay dos opciones para entradas y plato principal. El pueblo de Playa del Inglés está a 5 minutos a pie, ¡lo cual es muy agradable durante el día!¡únicamente durante el día! Después de alojarme aquí con media pensión, recomiendo este hotel muchísimo, pero sólo de manera alojamiento y desayuno. Esto porque Maspalomas (3 euros en taxi) es más para familias y parejas heterosexuales, tienen unos restaurantes muy agradables y por eso es más para la clase alta, pero para nada es caro. Además, el personal del bar y los camareros no me parecieron muy simpáticos.
Unas vacaciones de invierno perfectas
Mi esposo y yo visitamos el Vital Suites para unas vacaciones relajantes de invierno, y eso fue lo que conseguimos. El hotel es un poco como un Tardis, entras desde el nivel de la calle y tu suite está bajo el nivel del suelo. El personal de la recepción era muy atento y el registrarnos fue rápido y sencillo. Nos llevaron a nuestra suite por un laberinto de pasillos, todos impecablemente limpios. Nuestra suite constaba de una habitación sencilla con puertas acristaladas que abrían a un pequeñísimo jardín con un árbol de plátano. La sala de estar estaba bien equipada con un mini bar, televisión, un sofá cama, etc. El baño estaba impecable, con dos lavabos, bañera y ducha. Teníamos un patio grande, un pequeño jardín y un sendero que llegaba a la piscina. El área de la piscina y la cubierta con tumbonas pueden ser algo claustrofóbicas cuando el hotel está lleno, pero la vista del campo de golf y el mar lo compensaban. Nos alojamos de manera B&B porque nos gusta el probar distintos lugares para comer. Las áreas de alrededor eran muy tranquilas, con muchos bungalows y con edificios bajos. Lo peor de estas vacaciones fue que tuvimos lluvias torrenciales por dos mañanas y si ibas a desayunar tenías que salir para ir al comedor. Sin duda nos alojaremos de nuevo en este hotel, es perfecto para unas vacaciones en invierno. A propósito, no hay entretenimiento en el hotel en el invierno, a excepción de un pianista, y el bar cierra a las 11pm.
Very good hotel
We stayed at the Vital suites for 5 nights having booked through Alpharooms. We paid £250 in total which I think is an absolute bargain for the quality. It was more expensive on other sites though.
The hotel has a very international feel with visitors from all over Europe. The Suite was very large with bedroom and lounge area. The bathroom was very large and clean and the suite opened onto a terrace which was a few metres from the pool. The room had a mini bar which was extremely well priced for a hotel 2.20 euro for a beer and 3.50 for a wine.
The pool area was very relaxing and there was no problem obtaining a sunbed or umbrella on any of the days. Although the hotel appeared to be full there were days when only a few people were around the pool. The pool bar offered reasonably priced drinks and the menu was fairly extensive although not really a snack menue.
The hotel overlooked the golf course, was a 15-20 minute walk from Faro 2 centre in maspalomas and 15-20 minutes into Playa del ingles. There were many bars and restaurantes close by though and a 3 course meal for 2 with wine rarely cost more than 40 euro. The Milan italian restaurant was very good.
The buffet breakfast in the hotel was a little disappointing and the only thing that stopped me giving the hotel 5 starts. The hot food such as eggs was often cold! There were however plenty of other options such as pastries/Fruit/Yoghurt etc...
I would recommend this hotel.
Playa del Ingles: A Great Find; Dunas Vital Suites
A friend and I visited Playa del Ingles in late September and we had a great time. This vacation was pretty much planned at the last minute and I had a friend that reccommended Dunas Vital Suites. Wow! What an extremely nice place.
The Hotel: The location was great and central (it's less than a 10 minute walk to the dunes) and the staff and services at the hotel was top notch.
Wellness Center: The outdoor pool, and tanning area and dinning area to the most relaxing indoor jacuzzi, sauna (wet/dry), wellness center, turkish pool, fitness room.
Hotel dinning:The breakfast buffet was very nice. Dinner or drinks on the patio is very stunning with a view of the golf course below and dunes and ocean in the back setting.
Local restaurants: We had the opportunity to eat at some really great restaurants. La Casa Viejo (steaks) located just on the edge of the district, Rias Bajas @ Yumbo Center had excellent seafood and meats (expensive). A favorite local dish was the peppers padron and of course any seafood.
Travel: We had a car the entire week ( pre-reserved and a local agency -Record Rental-) as to the other standard US car agencies and saved a lot of time due to the long lines to pickup the rentals. We made trip all around the island and saw the different and varied climates on the island. The Yumbo Center is definitely worth a visit and is the place to be in the evenings for entertainment and dining, I thought it was quite tacky.
Weather: It was certainly beach weather each day, though that could change quickly depending on the wind conditions.
Lot's of water activities around the island.
Beaches: Puerto de Mogan, Playa del Ingles.
Drinks: Tropical beer (yes, this is the brand name, not the flavor), Ron Miel (local honey rum, normally served after dinner)
To See & Do: Local-The Dunes, the beach, Yumbo Center
Day trips outside of Playa del Ingels: Distileria Arehucas Rum Factory, Jardin Cardin (during blooming season only), Roque Nublo (Rock of the Clouds can be a slightly dificult walk for those not in decent shape). Las Palmas: Christopher Columbus Museum, West side beach promineade.
The bad side:
The Cita Center seemed very old and dirty. Many stores were closed and it's evident that no money has gone into this complex in a long time!
On one ocassions at the hotel we attempted to have drinks in the evening and the other time we had dinner and the same waitress and manager seemed to respond very slowly to the customers. Even with this incident it did not take away from the wonderful facility and service of the property.
Dedo de Dios (Finger of the God's) in Las Palmas was much overrated.
I would definitely visit this property next year!
Wow the best ive stayed in
Right where to start
Got back this morning from a week in this hotel, and it was lovely, the hotel is so relaxing, quite, and close enough to get anywhere in playa del ingles and Maspalomas.
The hotel it self is for me a 5 star (they say officially 4*+) but it had everything, its certainly a hotel for couples and could also accommodate for families. The staffs are very friendly and have to disagree with the other review.
I also have to say that if you go here, try to go half board, as its such a lovely place to eat, other reviews have spoke about only having 2 meals and 2 starters, but this is simply because it is not a bog standard hotel, and is not just a buffet style as your served by waiters, which is rare, again showing the hotels quality.
The rooms are very large, and cleaned twice a day! my room as you can see had a small garden on the back leading to the pool which was a nice touch, we had our robes waiting for the wellness spa, which again is amazing, the inside pool is heated and has stand up and sit down Jacuzzi lie down beds with bubbles, and seating al around the pool.
The pool bar at lunch is good and reasonably priced they do have a lot of fancy food but also basics like garlic bread, which was well worth a go.
I had 3 treatments all very reasonable in price, and all very relaxing, so well worth a look, the baths and saunas etc are free to use for hotel guests.
The location is ideal as you can go to either playa del ingles or maspalomas, which are full of bars and clubs etc, so very handy and will only cost around 2-3 euros.
Right there are a couple of very small points that I did find a bit off putting,
Nudity in the sauna area mostly German it has to be said, was a little annoying, but they don't allow it in the baths which is good, and maybe there could have been a bit more entertainment in the evening. Bar that its everything I wanted from a relaxing holiday so do not hesitate youll love it!
Ein perfekter Winterurlaub
Mein Mann und ich waren im Vital Suites, um einen erholsamen Winterurlaub zu verbringen und genau das war er dann auch. Das Hotel erinnert ein wenig an ein Tardis, das man auf Erdgeschossebene betritt und die Suite befindet sich dann ein Stockwerk darunter. Das Personal an der Rezeption war sehr aufmerksam und der Check-in verlief zügig und ohne Probleme. Wir wurden runter zu unserer Suite gebracht, durch ein Labyrinth von Korridoren, die alle makellos sauber waren. Unsere Suite bestand aus einem Doppelzimmer mit einer Glastür, die in einen winzigen Garten mit einer Bananenstaude führte. Das Wohnzimmer war gut ausgestattet mit einer Minibar, Fernseher, Sofabett usw. Das Bad war makellos sauber mit zwei Waschbecken, einer Wanne und einer Dusche. Wir hatten auch eine große Gartenterrasse und einen Pfad, der zum Pool führte. Der Poolbereich und die Terrasse mit den Sonnenliegen würde, wenn das Hotel voll wäre, ganz schön überfüllt sein, aber dafür hat man von dort eine schöne Sicht auf den Golfplatz und das Meer. Wir hatten dort nur Zimmer mit Frühstück gebucht, da wir gerne immer an verschiedene Orten Essen gehen. Die Umgebung war sehr ruhig mit vielen Bungalows und Flachbauten. Das Schlimmste am Urlaub waren die Wolkenbrüche, die wir an zwei Morgen hatten. Und wenn man zum Frühstück geht, dann muss man im Freien zum Essraum gehen. Wir würden definitiv wieder in diesem Hotel Urlaub machen, da es für einen Winterurlaub einfach perfekt ist. Es gibt übrigens kein Unterhaltungsprogramm im Winter in diesem Hotel, außer einem Pianisten und die Bar schließt um 23 Uhr.
Enjoyed this holiday very much, very nice hotel, small, quite and relaxing. The suites are massive and kept very clean! The facilities are excellent with a stunning spa area! My only problems were that there was only 1 resturant to eat in for dinner, which is a la carte, and there is just 2 choices for starter and main. The playa de lingles town is just a 5 min walk away, which is very nice during the day! only! After staying here half board, i would very much recommend the hotel, but only on a bed and breakfast basis. This is because Maspalomas (3 euro taxi ride away) which is more for families and straight couples has some very nice resturants and is more for the upper class as such, but not expensive at all. also i found that the bar and waiting staff were not very freindly.
A perfect winter break
My husband and I visited the Vital Suites for a relaxing winter break and that just what we got.The hotel is a little like a Tardis you enter from street level and your suite is below ground level.The reception staff were very attentive and check in was quick and easy.We were taken down to our suite and through a maze of corridors all immaculatly clean.Our suite consisted of a twin bedroom with french doors opening onto a tiny garden with a banana tree in it.The lounge was well equiped with mini bar,television,sofa bed etc.The bathroom was spotless with two sinks and bath and shower.We had a large patio small garden and path leading to the pool.The pool area and the deck with sunbeds when the hotel was full would be a little claustrophobic but the view over the golf course and sea made up for it.We stayed on bed and breakfast basis because we like to try different places to eat.The surrounding area was very quiet with lots of bungalows and low rise buildings.The worse thing about this holiday was that we had torrential rain for two mornings and if you are going for breakfast you have to go outside to get to the dining room.We would definately stay at this hotel again its perfect for a relaxing winter break.Incidently their is nt any entertainment in the hotel in the winter except for a pianist and the bar closes at 11pm.
A class act at Maspalomas
My wife and I have just returned from the Vital Suites at Maspalomas. The hotel is classed as 4*+ and certainly lives up to its promise. All suites/rooms are 1 bedroomed and ideal for couples who want a quiet, luxary holiday overlooking Maspalomas golf course, sand dunes and sea. Breakfast and waiter service 4 course dinner (for those on half board) provides all that one expects from this class of hotel. The Wellness centre and Gym is excellent for those wishing to be pampered, or maintain (or regain) shape and fitness.
Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles and Meloneras all within walking distance but taxi's only a few Euro's for the less mobile. Many resturants within a few hundred yards. Excellent value for money.
