Due to contrary winds and a low pressure system generating some “large” waves, the organisers decided to delay the start from yesterday to tomorrow. Some boats did leave yesterday and we went to watch together with Diane and Peter’s wife Sue and daughter Victoria. A lazy Sunday afternoon followed with drinks and a late lunch.

Over the three days we enjoyed indian cuisine, attempted at fresh fish and conversations covered a wealth of topics.

In the distance we saw the blow hole signs of whales, the tail up the air display and the odd riding fin.

Historical Traveler Reviews Vista Dorada Apartments Maspalomas
At first I was afraid......I was petrified!
Having booked way back in December to stay at Vista Dorada, I decided to check out the reviews of other holday makers.I was very quickly put off! But felt it was too late to do anything about it and thouht we would just have to make the best of it.I agree that the complex would not be suiable for those who experience poblems with climbing as the whole complex is built on the side of a steep hill.We went self catering ( which is ou preferred choice anyway) and so were not able to pass judgment on the restaurant meals.But we found the appartment we were allocated was clean and we were well catered for, kettle, toaster etc with the option to ent a microwave if you should want.As for cock roaches - well they are just part of the Canaries and were quickly dealt with using a spray provided by the appartment managers. At the end of the day we have many 'creepy-crawleys' in the UK, it's just that the Canaries have cock roaches instead of spiders or ants (like we would at home).The security was ecellent with safety deposits boxes at ?10 per week and a 24 hour receptionist on duty.This complex is near enough to the night life of the Yumbo, Faro 2 and Playa del Ingles (?3.00 max cab fare) - but quit enough at night that you coul sleep without the thump, thump. thump of club music.efinately a complex for hose wanting to 'chill' in particular families with young children - and for members of the gay community (thats us!) very 'gay-friendly'.In short we had a great time!
Xmas- new year
if you want to be mugged, burgled,offered drugs and live in filth for your entire holiday this is the place to go. If you don't then i would go straight to the travel agents and book to go anywhere than to these appartments. All my family found the walking and steps to the pool hard don't go here if you have difficulty walking or asthma like we have. If you like cats take one into your appartment it will keep the cockroaches away. Spent £2100 on holiday promiced entertainment but didn't happen. Creche closed, entertainment listed for new years eve and day on notice boards but never happened a total waste of money will never go on holiday with airtours again.All the people on holiday at the same time as me are complaining and going to take it further. You have to get a safe for insurance purposes but don't put anything in it.
Driving lic,passports,flight tickets all stollen they are being sold for a 1000 euro a time
We loved it!!!
we have been to the vista dorada 4 times , the kids really enjoyed it .
we will keep on booking to go there its a great family holiday.
Good late deal
We stayed here as a late deal and were very impressed. Clean, well-maintained, lovely pool and a very peaceful resort, if you are away from the pool, which we were. Recommended.
Visited vista dorada in sep-oct 03.Appartments were small but clean(ants were evident everywhere).security was slack as there were a few breakins while we were there.Reps were friendly as were the complex staff.Pool was always clean but could of done with a lifeguard present.Entertainment was ok but could of done with a few more outside entertainers.Food within the complex was very good ,not alot of restaurants nearby.
Very Nice pLace!
We have just come back from our holiday in Gran Canaria, where we stayed in the Vista Dorada. The accomodation was very nice, it was a spacious appartmant with a large patio garden to sunbathe in! The food at the resteraunt was delicious and varied and the staff were all helpful and friendly.
Best hotel i have been to!
I found the apartments very accommodating, the evening entertainment was of good quaility, the staff were very friendly, lots of daytime activities for all the family, two large sized pools and good optional food! The only thing that i wasnt too happy about was the distance from the beach! - but there was a free bus that ran every hour! and good/cheap taxi services were available at any time of the day!
Post vista dorada
The Vista Dorada holiday complex , I found to be quite adequate not too posh and not run down. The site is steep but that goes with the type of island' after all its a volcano.The staff there were helpful and polite.The one complaint I have is the traffic noise from the nearby main road. I cannot really comment on the food as we went S/C , but from what I saw of it , it was very nice.I dont think I would return there, only because I've been and there are other places to go to and see.
Not that happy
We stayed there in March 2003 It wasn't too hot There were a lot of ants and cockroaches and cats that messed in our gardenThe ramps and steps were a lot to cope with as we were at the bottom of the hill. The place is in need of a lick of paint and some minor reairs The worst thing was the burglaries ten in one week while we were there The free bus when it did turn up had the grumpiest drivers and the taxi drivers often switched off the meter and charged whatever they likedGood foodFair kids club
New Year 2003
I was on-the-whole very happy with the Vista Dorada Apartments. The apartment itself contained a [fairly small] double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a pleasant and modern bathroom (bath with shower), a very well equipped small kitchen/dining area, a large living room/lounge area with patio doors onto a large balcony. The food was fantastic at the Vista Dorada (I was staying half-board). Full-cooked and continental breakfasts were provided buffet/help-yourself style with a good selection of meats, cheeses, breads (sweets and savoury) and fruits.The dinner in the evening, served from 7pm until 9.30pm [i think] was quite spectacular. A choice of two home-made soups (different every night), fresh seafood starters, fresh salads, about 12 main courses, and a good selection of sweets and puddings. All served buffet/help-youself style with eat as much as you like. Now here comes the first problem. The Vista Dorada is about 2 miles from the beach at Maspalomas. It is also situated on top of a large hill, the top of the district Sonneland. The hotel did provide a free bus to the beach which left hourly, but this was shared by other hotels and could get quite busy. The second main problem was the size of the complex and it's location on a steep hill. If your chalet, like mine was, is situated at the bottom of the hill/complex you will find yourself having to walk up a very steep hill for 5-10 minutes every time you go from your chalet to breakfast, or dinner, or for a swim etc. This did prove to be quite tiring after a while. The hotel is also quite a distance from the nearest main road where buses for Las Palmas and Porta Morgan, for example, pass. The Vista Dorada is a very family-orientated place and they provide some great entertainment for the kids. Such as organising games in the swimming pool, which by the way is very nice. However, I didn't rate the adult/late night entertainment very much. I would, however, recommend several of the excursions put on by the hotel. Especially the island tour, including lunch, which takes you to Las Palmas, the Volcanic craters and pretty much all over the Eastern side of the island. If you can put up with the walking (you may not have this problem if your apartment is near the main hotel building) I would recommend the Vista Dorada. The staff are especially friendly and helpful, the apartments themselves nice, and the food too.
