Hello my beautiful people,
Long time I know, I wont write much in this entry as I have to upload two more entries. But Ill say this: I went to the Canary Islands for East for a week. It was beautiful, the weather much warmer and was able to swim in the pool and get a tan! That is what counts right? :)
We rented a car for a day and …
... not sure what the prizes are but we have heard that there not that special (so no cruise) I'm sure Butlins gave a free holiday if you won any competition, oh well...... Tonight's entertainer was very good, a vocalist singing rock, just up my street, great selection of songs and brilliantly performed. We arrive in Vietnam in the morning and we are on a trip early so early night required. I will update tomorrow how it goes. ...

Peter has now arrived in Las Palmas and is moored just a few boats away from Orca. He had problems getting out of the harbor where he had to stop on the northern island. The swell was so big his keel would have gone aground at the entrance to the small harbor, so he was stuck there for two days waiting for the sea to settle.
Peter and his crew had intended to ...

The food was delicious, a choice of buffet on some nights and others it was a menu but there was always enough choices. The dessert was always buffet style.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
You are 2mn walk from the beach, from downtown for some bicycle renting, beautiful walks around.
The rooms are big and beautiful.
There is an area for children with their own pool, playground and even a daycare. There is a pool for everyone and then there is a pool where no kids are allowed so its quiet and peacful.
There is something for everyone!

Historical Traveler Reviews Seaside Palm Beach Maspalomas
Just came back from this hotel - what a lovely hotel. The hotel staff could not do enough for us. Beautiful hotel great location especially if you get a sea view from one of the upper floors (our room was 619 great views).
We went to this resort and although the pool and bedrooms were good we were very upset by some of the overall service and amenities. Staff were not so friendly, especially the grouchy consierge. God forbid you don't speak German then your really out of luck when it comes to getting looked after by staff.
A friendly hotel in a superb location, doorsteps away from the fantastic beach of Maspalomas. Staff extremely helpful, and remembered our names and faces by the second day.
Hier stimmt einfach alles: Service, Essen, Pool-Landschaft - alles vom Feinsten!
Werde meinen nächsten Urlaub wieder im Seaside Palm Beach verbringen!
Absolut empfehlenswertes Hotel!
stayed palm beach in May, excellent location,minutes from beach, resort within walking distance, guests mostly german few brits , food excellent, rooms quite large clean, 2 pools, 1 was adults only,also saunas, beauty treatments + masssages available, activities throughout day water aerobics, fashion shows etc if you want to join in no pressure , evening entertainment not that good, overall had a brilliant week our only niggle was in the restaurant at night tables for two were a bit squashed too close together though some nights they had barbecue on so seating was all outside,which was nicer,also if on half board you can substitute your evening meal and eat at lunchtime instead you have a choice.
would recommend this hotel and would go back
We have just returned from a wonderfully sunny week at the Palm Beach. I was intrigued by the hotel after reading a great article in the Times which described it as being a luxury hotel that was fine for kids too, and took my 2 year old with us. Its a really fun design hotel, that was apparently built in the 70s and renovated in 2002. I guess its a matter of taste (apparently some rooms are in coral and violet), but our room was decorated in hues of brown and beige and we had the most fantastic view of the sea and sand-dunes. It was really comfortable and the way that it was decorated made us feel a bit like we were movie stars in California.
We went to the Palm Beach in mid March 2005 with our 14 month old boy,having been given to understand that the hotel was looking to develop the family and younger oriented 'style' groups.We were somewhat misled.There's nothing wrong with the hotel itself -stylish enough rooms (but don't go for anything less than a junior suite if you want to swing the odd cat around),comfortable lounge and reception areas (although the common areas leading to the room were suprisingly tatty) and generally good food.
My husband and I spent a week in July 2004 at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our time spent here.
Top class hotel
returned from this hotel in october 2004. originally had been booked elsewhere but because of over booking we were allocated the palm beach instead. This hotel is out of this world. Everything from the food, rooms, to the location were excellent. Best holiday ever and will definately be back. Only a small gripe there were only about another 6 families in the whole of the hotel who were English so therefore geared more for other nationalities.
The seventies are back again!
This hotel is nestled in the wonderful oasis of Maspalomas, just a few steps from the amazing beach and sanddunes of Maspalomas.It is a privately owned 5 star hotel, with many regular guest. Last year the hotel was renovated in the style of the seventies. The large garden was also redesigned and a spa added.Overall this must be one of the best places to stay in the canaries. The staff is friendly and efficient, the cuisine excellent, the aminities plentifull. In addition the hotel staff organizes games and sports all day long. Evening entertainment. The best: compared to other hotels it is still affordable.
