We have just the one sea day before reaching Ha Long Bay, our first stop in Vietnam. Bridget tells me things are warming up at home, I hope I can say the same here, it's been cold the last few days. So it's spring at home, weather fine and all the bulbs are popping up. I'm a bit sad about that I do like to see all the crocuses etc. still you can't do everything!!! I meant to mention before our captain is Angelo Vago, he ...
... to join me, took along the needlework I bought in Norway and met a lady who knows all about this craft (she's from Norway) brilliant if I get stuck she will helpmeet out. Later did some people watching on the deck. Paul is doing his Captain ******** with bino's in hand looking for anything out at sea. Pool still not open but am very optimistic about tomorrow. Captain ******** (Paul) has spotted land, we are a couple of miles south of ...
... from the engine room boys who did a version of The Chippendales, to the deck hands singing "In the Navy". Traditional dancing from the various countries by waiters, room maids, reception staff and many more. A rapturous applause by a full house and the crew so happy to bring part of their world to us passengers.Then the traditional Gala Buffet, which I have seen several times before but ...
... an 'under the sea' theme. After gathering all our bits together a few of us went to grab some local WiFi and a coffee. A coffee then turned into 3 or 4 cocktails... We went back onto the ship and I decided to go as a drowned swimmer. I tanned myself, wore speedos and covered myself in rope, seaweed, fish and carried a coconut cup. It was such a good party and everyone's costumes looked great, I've put some pictures up as a taster of what the night was like. Good ...

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
