... on both Ocean Village ships and so I was wondering if Lisa you know hi at all? He really is such a nice Captain full of wit and so quick with his remarks. He will be replaced in Singapore whilst he has some shore leave. I hope the new one will be as good. Paul won this afternoons shuffle board so has quite a little collection of gold stickers. I still have only 2 but I don't go as often (that's my excuse ...
... would love it. No more bad weather now (I had a word). It should be plain sailing all the way, bring on Antigua!!! Show time tonight was great, the resident song and dance group. The theme was musicals, from Singing in the rain to Westside story. The costumes were fabulous, the singing was terrific and the dancing was brilliant. This was followed by another performance by singer Dennis Walker, he too was excellent. All in all a pretty perfect ...

Las Palmas Marina
We are nearly finished with our preparations for the big crossing of the Atlantic. We had a long list of jobs to complete before we could leave but they are now just about done. Rob and Laura are out shopping for last minute supplies, such as long life milk and sealed half baked bread that lasts for weeks in its plastic wraps along ...
The last 2 days have been great sailing days, the wind finally was in our favour and soon we would be in Gran Canarie, after 6 days nonstop sailing. I sat back in the cockpit, looking back at the sea and our wake disappearing behind us in the late afternoon sun. Not a warming sun as the breeze of 12 knots chills the air. Shards of sunlight shining through the overcast sky of gold and grey fan out to the sea as the sun nears ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia Maspalomas
This is a very comfortable hotel. The food is excellent, as is the service. There is a lovely pool. Breakfast and dinner is served on a verandah in the open air overlooking the pool with a view of the mountains. Lunch (very reasonable) is served by the pool. There is a wellness centre with a sea water pool, steam, sauna, treatments etc.
Value for money
Nice staff, ideal for a short trip, food was excellent. We were with a baby of one year, no problems altough we don't recommend it for children between 2 and 12 years old
We have just returned from two weeks in the Grand Residencia and are still feeling both "chilled" and cossetted. It was the most relaxing and comfortable hotel which fully deserves its five stars. The efficiency of all the staff, be it in reception, the bar, the restaurant and the rooms, was faultless. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was done with willingness, smiles and humour. The fittings throughout were of a high standard and everything worked - not always the case in 5* hotels! The spa and treatments were fantastic. I had a bad fall but a therapeutic massage soon put me right. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and beautifully appointed and two chocolates each arrived each day, together with fresh fruit which was replenished each day.
We stayed in the Grand Hotel Residencia for a week on a half-board basis at the end of February. This is a fantastically luxurious hotel with a spa and beautiful pool area. It is located 5 minutes from the beach but believe me, you will spend most of your time lounging around the pool! This is perfect for couples wanting to relax completely for a week. Most of the guests are older so if you're looking for activities such as dancing, sports, etc. this is definitely not the place to go. The same advice is for families with small children or singles. You may find this boring! However, if you plan to eat well, sleep, lounge by the pool and just relax, this is definitely the place for you. The service is excellent, the staff is very friendly and the rooms are spacious and luxurious.
First, I want to apologize for my English. I wil try to say it the best I can. We have had the most wonderfull holiday of all. It was the most quiet, peacefull, luxurious, friendly, discreet ... holiday since our last 6 years. Because I work in school during the year, we try to make a choice out of quiet, luxurious and when possible small hotels without too many children.
My wife and I made our scond successive visit to this hotel over the Easter period. I only go to the best, so that is why I returned. The standard rooms are superb. They are spacious with every modern amenity. The best rooms, in my opinion, are on the first floor overloking the pool. You can opt for rooms overlooking the lagoon, not part of the hotel, or the dunes.
As the owner of a busy country hotel, I was looking forward to some well-earned R & R, and I definately found here at the Residencia. Its a small property with lovely cactus gardens and its just a short stroll to the fabulous sand-dunes of Maspalomas. There is a lovely walk along the new beach promenade of Meloneras, with some great designer boutiques and cafés.
Having read the two previous reviews, I was greatly looking forward to a stay at the Residencia. Unfortunately, the hotel I stayed at seemed to bear litle resemblance to those described in the reviews. First the good news! The rooms are beautifully appointed, the reception area spacious, the reception staff professional and welcoming. If you like nouvelle cuisine, you will enjoy the restauarant too. In fact its what you would expect of a five starred luxury hotel.
My husband and I stayed here for a week during august. It was fabulous!
Marvelous Oasis of Luxury
We went to the Canaries (Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria) and Marbella in the South of Spain for our honeymoon. It was all fantastic, but this hotel was a godsend. It was truly marvelous. Small, luxurious, glorious and absolutely beautiful and tranquil. The staff caters to your every need, the pool and grounds are in absolutely pristine condition not to mention the rooms are luxuriously appointed and immaculate...and the restaurant is to die for - 4 course gourmet succulent meals. Truly a special place - perfect for a romantic get-a-way...no kids please!
