... 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.

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.
After recovering from a serious number of pre-race parties, I decided to attend some of the many arc seminars covering provisioning, routing and weather, rigging - apparently chaffing is the enemy, and a fantastic seminar by norwegian born Jimmy Cornell - who started the ARC some 25 years ago!

My husband and i have just returned from a week at Sandy Golf. After reading a couple of reveiws here i was not looking forward to it. I shouldn't have worried, we have had a fabulous week we wanted some where quiet and not in the resort centre, this was perfect. The bungalows were lovely and clean with maid service, The staff were all very helpfull and polite, we had a 10pm pick up and they were more than happy for us to keep our room until then (it cost us 21 euros). We walked in and out of Maspolomas most days but there is a free bus and taxis cost 3 euros. There was never a shortage of beds around the pool all in all a lovely relaxing break.
Mein Mann und ich sind gerade von einem einwöchigen Aufenthalt im Sandy Golf nach Hause zurückgekommen. Nachdem ich einige Berichte hier gelesen hatte, war ich nicht gerade so begeistert. Ich hätte mir keine Sorgen machen müssen, wir verbrachten eine fantastische Woche. Wir wollten einen ruhigen Ort und nicht mitten im Zentrum des Urlaubsorts und das Hotel war perfekt. Die Bungalows waren sehr hübsch und sauber und wurden von Zimmermädchen gereinigt. Das gesamte Personal war sehr hilfsbereit und höflich. Wir wurden um 22 Uhr abgeholt und man reservierte uns das Zimmer gerne bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt (es kostete uns 21 €). Wir liefen die meisten Tage nach Maspolomas und wieder zurück, aber es gibt auch einen kostenlosen Bus und Taxis kosten 3 Euro. Es gab immer freie Sonnenliegen um den Pool. Insgesamt ein schöner, erholsamer Kurzurlaub.
My boyfriend & I have just returned from the Sandy Golf. After arriving late we where happy with what we could see despite the darkness of the complex.
Been more than four times and going again!
I have been four times already, twice alone with my daughter. As it is in its own little complex so to speak we felt very safe. The two other times we have been with my mum. The only drawback there is that she stays on the sofa bed. We are going again this year except with my husband and daughter's friend from school. Looking forward to it now that the refurbishment has taken place. We always have a very relaxing holiday here and the pool is great. It doesn't get busy either.
Just returned from a 2 week stay at Cordial Sandy Golf, Mapalomas, Gran Canaria. Did some research pre hol and was very fearful for the trip!! However all in all me and my girlfriend had a good holiday.
We arrived late 1 am come to find out that the resort doesn't even have a sign telling you that you are at the Sandy Golf. The reception was closed we drove around for 2.5 hours trying to find out if this was actually the hotel due to no hotel sign. We finally got a guy at a hotel close by to call around and he found out that we should go to Green Golf to get our keys to our room. How we were suppose to know this I don't know. Can't for the life of me figure out why there isn't a note on the door telling you this. One of the reasons we picked this hotel was because there was lots of free parking and we had a rent a car. We were at the resort the week of Easter. Come Wednesday management decided to block off half the parking lot for staff parking only. Which was a nightmare cause the hotel is on a very narrow road where you couldn't park. Come 8 pm 1/2 the parking lot was empty but we couldn't get into it because of the chain. I was FURIOUS!!! The rooms are very tired looking definitely need to be redone. There was no hot water in our unit. One of us could have a 3 minute shower with hot water and the next person would get in and it would be stone cold. Had them put in a new hot water tank which wasn't any better. Just what you want to do when you are on vacation is have workmen in your room all the time. Would never stay here again.
This was our second visit to Sandy Golf for my wife and I. This time we were accompanied by our Daughter and her partner and our Grandson.
Myself and my family and sometimes friends have been staying at Sandy Golf since 1992 (every year, sometimes twice). Given the choice we wouldn't go anywhere else. It has everything we need, fantastic pool, relatively quiet, good bungalows which are kept very clean, friendly staff (some have been there for years). It is near everything you need- beach, shops, nightlife etc. We look forward to staying at Sandy Golf for many years to come and can't wait to see the refurbishments being carried out this year.

We are a (young outlook) couple, just reached 50. Been holidaying in the med for 25 years. Sandy Golf is situated in a quiet location, with the Faro Centre less that 10 minutes walk - the apartments are nicely set out, and we found them to be basically good. You MUST pay for your digital (in-apartment) safe. There is a tv in every apartment BUT you have to hire the hand set, about 30 Euros for the fortnight. That is where the downside ends. The 100% most fantastic part of the complex is the pool, wonderful, VERY quiet, NEVER short of sun loungers, it really is wonderful. I have hired a car for the fortnight for the last 2 years, and will be doing again. I hire from "RECORD CAR HIRE" they are based on the airport. rates are brilliant, and all cars are up-market and nearly brand new. Fill up the tank for 20 Euros. From Maspalomas either drive or a 3 Euro taxi ride into Playa De Ingles. The place is bouncing with all the wonderful younger people. Go to the Yumbo Centre - it is huge, caters for everything, and watch in awe the worlds gays parading themselves, really very interesting. Back to travel, the roads are really good. If you self cater, try and find the shopping mall at the north of Playa De Ingles, and stock up. Or if you drive head back towards the airport and visit the town of Doctorall, and use the Hippo supermarket. Back to your location, be aware of the nudist beach by the sand dunes, and be aware of a "swingers" atmosphere in the over 40's. All in all, we love it. If you are under 30, Playa De Ingles is probably for you. If you are over that, or family, or family with youngsters, get to Maspalomas. We love to share comments - we are at e-mail
