... beer. The papas are boiled in very salty water with the skin and served like that, but its the mojo that is the important part of the meal. We then walked down the paseo by the sea for a while, on the left we had the buildings and moutains, and on the right we had the vast sea filled with ships, tankers, cargo ships and three oil drilling platforms under construction, so that scenery was not the best.
... 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 ...
... 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).
... of eating, cooking, reading, relaxing, learning Spanish and film night sets in quickly.
The cloudless night sky and the cloudy day sky are both inspiring and the time you spend sitting around lends some insight into the reasons stories were told about constellations. Sunsets and birds soon become the main attractions.
After a while the rhythm of the boat takes over and a pattern emerges for each day. ...
... a good one so I went a little further out and waited for a good wave to try and ride in but then I faceplates right at the start. Worst last run haha. After surfing I figured since the sun was still shining that id hit the beach for the last bit before leaving. We made dinner later on (chicken nuggets) and had some drinks with people on the rooftop terrace before heading to bed and planning for a out last few days of the trip in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bungalows El Palmeral Maspalomas
El Palmeral bungalows are in a good location and less than two minutes walk to the Faro2 complex. The staff are extremerly friendly (with exception to night warden) and can not do enough to help you. There is a small on site supermarket but the Faro2 is slightly cheaper and better stocked.
For the last six years my family and i have visited gran canaria, and on each visit without hesitation have stayed at the el palmeral bungalows. the bungalows are clean and efficient. the staff are fantastic especially maria and juan carlos who go out of their way to help you enjoy a fantastic holiday. a two minute walk from the bungalows is the shopping centre faro 2 where you will find an array of bars and restraunts as well as a variety of shops including the versace shop for all you designer fans. there is no entertainment on site at el palmeral but a 5 minute taxi ride or for the more energetic a 20 minute walk will take you into playa de ingles where you will find a variety of pubs and clubs to suit every taste. My families age range is from 16 to 72 and there is something for everyone.
Stayed in 2003. Can't say anything but: brilliant. The staff were EXTREMELY friendly. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Spotless bed linen. Definitely recommend it. Barman was very helpful, and even brought the food over to our bungalow! The pool was VERY clean. Very close to Faro 2 which was excellent. Overall, a great holiday - great memories.
Me (21) James, my boyfriend (26). Went to Maspalomas in August 04' The hotel is in a good location. The rooms are very nice and spacious and I didn't see any bugs! The pool area is nice. Staff are very friendly and helpful especially Fabion and Ali who work round the pool. They will recommend some good places to visit. The rooms get cleaned regulary and the maids are also happy! The only let down is no air con and it's so hot out there! Oh and you can hear the music at the Faro 2 Centre till quite late. There is a good supermarket in the Faro 2 shopping centre but the one at the hotel is also good for little bits.
Me, my niece & sister-in-law went to El Palmeral on 3rd July 2004 for my nieces 16th birthday pressie. We had a great time & felt like we were in our own bungalow. The place was very clean & the atmosphere around the pool was great. We also had maid service every day bar one. We even had a small earthquake while there (I mean very small cause we didn't feel anything) This did however cause a problem for our pool which was cracked in the morning but the staff there couldn't do enough to sort the problem. They provided the use of the pool opposite immediately and refunded any taxi fares to the beach. The staff on reception were lovely, friendly and willing to give help and advice. There was a shopping centre about 2 mins away and playa del ingels was a very short taxi ride away. There was a camel park on the way to the beach where you could go for a ride, which lasts approx 20-30mins, thro the dunes well worth doing! All in all a lovely place to stay, quite, clean and friendly. Definately go back there.
Good value apartments
Having just returned from a week at the El Palmeral apartments in Maspalomas i would recommend these bungalows for there peace and quite, cleanlyness and overall atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were cleaned daily with fresh linen and towels twice a week. we chose it having checked the reviews and it lived up to them. The only negative thing I would say is that the poole is not as clean as it should be. a 3 minute walk is a shopping complex called Faro2 which has a supermarket and a couple of dozen restaurants.
All in all an enjoyable place to stay.
Lovely hooneymoon atmosphere
as newleyweds my husband and i stayed at the palmeral in august 2002 we were there for our hooneymoon and everything was perfect from the fluffy towels in the bathroom to the lovely terrace that we sat on every night sipping our very reasonably priced wine.the pool was small but very clean as were all the facillities.the people at the poolside bar were lovely and really knew how to have fun.all the ammenities are just literelly around the corner and we had a lot of laughs and fun at the faro 2 centre before heading off home to our terrace all in all a lovely place to stay even if you have children they wont get bored we will most definately be going back soon also the aqua sur water park is brilliant.viva el palmeral
