... is what counts right? :)
We rented a car for a day and went for a beautiful drive. Scary at times because it was so narrow and you would accross a bus.... I closed my eyes for that part! The food was delicious and the people super nice.
Had a great time!
This summer I went to the Canary Islands with my friends. We did a lot of things there; we went to the swimming pool, partying, to the dune beach, and to the aqua park party...
Also, one day we went to one beach where there were a lot of water sports and we practised the motorskying, parasailing and a los of things.
Finally we come back to Spain with hangovers and our bodies very pained becouse we fell many ...
... filled the sails and the trip was done entirely by motor. But the seas were calm, beautiful and brimming with life. Over the three days we enjoyed indian cuisine, attempted at fresh fish and conversations covered a wealth of topics. We saw the odd turtle enjoying the sunshine and a beautiful and lively pod of 12 dolphins came to dance in the bow wave. In the distance we saw the blow hole signs of whales, the tail up the air display and the odd riding fin.
... got to see one whale, but it was really close up! Then we went closer to shore for some swimming, snorkeling and tubing! It was a great afternoon. Then we had paella for lunch and headed back along the coast to Puerto Rico. It was a super relaxing way to see the island!
The next day we explored the Dunes of Maspalomas which looked exactly how I imagine the Sahara desert (which was pretty close to us actually), only a lot smaller. It was a little weird going ...
... Good old Lewis jumped into action and put his weight training to good use by pulling the barriers open.
Dave was waiting for us and we set off around the M25 and onto the M1.
Everything seemed to be going smoothly until we hit junction 11. Without any pre-warning traffic came to a complete halt. I also noticed that there was no traffic travelling south bound. There was nothing on the radio or the traffic ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort, Spa & Casino Maspalomas
No reason to doubt going to this resort when you just want to enjoy good food, fabulous pools and comfortable rooms. It is good money spend. Even on cloudy days the garden is a great place to read a book or simply dream away. Hotel lounge is very pleasant to hang out a bit before or after dinner.
Like our friend from Northern Ireland (above), I too had read bad reports. These mainly concerned the poor attitude of bar and restaurant staff. I have just returned from a holiday at the Gran Hotel and wonder if the complainants live on the same planet as I do. The staff were really first class, especially to my two year old grand daughter. A wonderful hotel with excellent staff.
Excellent location,settings,furnishing,style, food,service, everything is simply fantastic.
Just came back from Costa Meloneras for the 3d time and still amazed!
Especially this year we could enjoy the new spa facilities, which are the best i ever experienced! The cleanness, diversity of pools and creativity of designers and architects of this hotel is really impresses me! The only thing was missing for me is dancing. I would recommend it both for the families and couples. We will definately go back there next year, but i would advice to go in july as in august its a bit crowded and its not so easy to find a free space by the swimming pools, especially if you like to sleep late in the morning. Cheers!
The brochure undersold the quality of this hotel. The location, facilities (especially the pools - with the main one 110m long with the appearance that it runs into the ocean), restaurants and staff are all first class. Tito, the tennis coach, is very enthusiatic and organises fun tournaments and lessons for all standards. We didn't want to leave and plan to return. Great for all the family.
We read comlaints about this hotel before we visited it, but all completely unfounded. Facilities magnificent, staff so friendly it was hard to believe, cleanliness unsurpassed, food better than expected. Perhaps entertainment could have included dancing. There is a ballroom, but it's seldom open. Stil, full marks . . . and we will return.
we have just returned from a weeks holiday at the very glamouros costa meloneras. wonderful value for money. good selection of eating places. 2 buffet resturantes . excellent a-la-carte rest. THE AMBASSADOR. very friendly staff.4. swimming pools each set in lovely landscaped gardens. 1st. class spa facilities. what more can we say. we would definately use this hotel again.
Gorgeous hotel ! Main pool awesome
Beautiful. Food lovely and staff. Unfortunately they all think you're German! Grounds and facilities very relaxing and lovely atmosphere. Well-being centre is AWESOME! Lows: paying for all extras and rooms need ironing board & tea/coffee making facilities available. Everything and animation/movies had wonderful selections.
Great hotel & vacation
Splendid hotel => great rooms, swimming pools, well organized!! Disadvantages:Poor english of some people of staffAnimation team not omnipresent Eveninganimation: only professional shows - no disco never the lesse a splendid place (!!!) to stay!!!
Largest hotel in Spain
Indeed a grand hotel having over 1000 rooms. Helpful attentive staff, and cleanliness second to none. Not for people with walking difficulties as it took us 7 minutes to walk briskly from the lobby to our room. An army of cleaners and gardeners keep the place pristine. Food quality is good, although my only critisism would be that food designed to be hot was generally very cool.
Room well appointed with usual anticipated features. This hotel is the finest four star hotel I have stayed in.
