Gran canaria is a good destination but the hotel let us down big time

Dated facilities. The hotel needs immediate refurbish. Understaffed and the staff spoke very poor English. The food /breakfast poor quality. Really struggled with the low number of staff. The staff very down and overworked. Hardly any smile on their face. Not a 5 star hotel.. Just borderline 4 star.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

A welcomed break. This is a relaxing hotel with a beautiful garden and the pool area [four pools] is well designed. The actual beach area outside the hotel is an uncrowded blue flag beach. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast Champagne an christmas chocolates were a treat.

Fantastic week of relaxation

The staff at the hotel are the real stars! Such a great service provided all round from reception to dining room..speaking of which the food is amazing, the little beach in front of the hotel is clean & quite lovely and the resort felt authentic and well thought out. We loved our stay and will certainly return! A special mention must go out to Yasmina at reception, to the restaurant maître d, the faultless cleaning staff (probably the cleanest hotel I've encountered in Europe) and the lovely overall atmosphere that the melia staff and management have worked to create!

Enjoyable stay

Comfy clean room and hotel. Sea view lovely. Good wi-fi reception across the whole hotel. Lovely clean heated pool (a little on the chilly side?), plenty of deck chairs, fun mini golf, table tennis, and one tennis court (all free; equipment available at reception). (Plus a well-stocked mini-supermaket only 100 yards away). Staff friendly and helpful. Spanish bureaucracy means that despite the best efforts of reception staff it's not fast checking in or out (and to avoid queues, do avoid the midday check out time!). Breakfast and dinner are massive buffets (we didn't eat lunch so I cannot comment on them). The selection of food available was very large, and high quality, with three cooked meal stands (one chef on each) to cook food as you wish. Good cuts of meat (entrecot, venison, veal etc) and fish (swordfish, tuna, see-bream), an excellent selection of bread, puddings, fruit, nuts, cured meats, pickles etc, and salad items, but vegetables a little poor in choice by comparison. We are a nightmare family to cook for - nut allergy, gluten and many other food intolerances - but the staff were exceedingly kind and helpful and went out of their way to check ingredients for us and cook or find food especially for us (they always have ready-prepared plates of gluten free bread - a selection of two kinds plus a mini cake). I want to single out our waiter, Melian, for special praise, for his kindness and help. Every other night (I didn't check precisely how often) they have live piano playing during evening meals, and every night live music. All very enjoyable. In short, a nice hotel, but not sure it quite lives up to the full five stars. I mean that nicely - it's lacking certain amenities, I think, and the decor is a little dated, but what amenities it has are good and done to a very high standard. We enjoyed our stay. Oh, and in February half-term holidays, when we visited with our nine year old son, it was mostly middle to older aged customers. Not a suitable venue for young families if you want your kids to find friends!
