Travel Blogs from Maspalomas
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 ...
... group of Islands ( not quite where we should have been this morning) it us now about 5pm, roughly when we would have been leaving had we managed to keep to the original schedule. Artwork from the mid ships I am including loads of this stuff especially for you Sue!!!! There are art classes on board so if there is any remote chance that we could get on another cruise or maybe you could get some holiday and join us for the 2nd half of this ...
... amazed at our each cruise they manage to create quite new and innovative designs to produce. The buffet is open for photos and then at midnight guests can tuck in! Needless to say I was just happy to photograph these delights.Our next stop is Gran Canaria, no excursions planned so will just have a wander as we are In port for several hours, but if the sun shines might just enjoy the warm ...
... will give us plenty of fuel to run the motor to recharge the batteries. But of course we should not need to use the engine much at all as the trade winds are perfect for the journey across along with sunshine.
So tonight we should get the Genoa back from the sail maker, and be set to depart tomorrow.
Have a great Xmas everyone and wish us luck.

... the waves at speeds of up to 10 plus knots. One last jibe gave us a heading direct to the marina at last. 10nm miles from Las Palmas I called the harbor control and advised them of our position and intentions, at 5nm they told us to contact the marina control.
At last we were tied up alongside the reception pontoon and could go to bed and sleep like we had not slept for 6 days.

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.
