Cay Beach Princess Bungalows  

The huge pool takes centre-stage at this bungalow complex. Plus, it’s only a free bus ride from the beach.

The bungalows at this peaceful complex share a fantastic pool, complete with a poolside snack bar and whirlpool.

Maspalomas beach is about a 20-minute walk away, or you can hop on the free shuttle bus and be there in 5. The bars and clubs of Playa del Ingles are about 10 minutes down the road by taxi.

First time in Gran Canaria

Me and my partner recently stayed here on a Thomson Holiday and really enjoyed it. We arrived late at night but were greeted by our rep Jess the next morning who was very helpful throughout our stay. We'd read reviews on here prior to going and the main criticism seemed to be that the complex was a little out of the way from places but as we knew this already, it wasn't a problem. Getting around was fairly easy, the staff on reception were friendly and more than happy to order us taxis, in particular Carlos who we thought was a bit of a character! We got taxis mainly to and from the beach during the day and a place called Melaneras at night for food, and never paid any more than about 4 euros per journey. Caybeach do have a daily bus service to the beach, but it only goes at 3 times in the morning and comes back 3 times in the afternoon, the times didn't really suit us which is why we just got taxis as they were cheap enough. Maspalomas Beach is 5 minutes away in a taxi, it is a golden sands beach and is very clean. We were very impressed by Meloneras, if you like fancy restaurants and designer shops then this is the place to go. We ate there nearly every night as we liked it so much, the whole place just felt very classy and upmarket. The facilities at Caybeach are good; the pool area is nice, the whole complex is well-maintained and cleaned regularly, the bungalows are also clean and well-equipped full self-catering. The pool bar serves snack food during the day, happy hour is between 4:30-5:30pm. We only ate breakfast in the restaurant once but it was good, there was a wide selection of English and Continental food available. The complex also has a mini supermarket which has a limited selection food and drink, if you plan to eat in every night you are better off going to a local supermarket such as Hyperdino at El Tablero shopping centre (4 euros in a taxi) as there is a lot more choice and it is cheaper. Our only criticisms of Caybeach is that the beds were a little on the hard side and the entertainment on the evenings wasn't very good, unless you like Neil Diamond tributes and Bingo! On the whole, for the money we paid, we enjoyed our stay and we would be happy to return in the future and recommend to others.More

Budget best

This is a great, friendly resort; staff are all really warm and welcoming, always greeting you with a smile and going out of their way to help! The resort is lovely and clean. There is a fabulous large pool with pirate style swinging bridge across the centre, a smaller, warm pool with sealed off kids section, jacuzzi and hydra beds, and sports courts for tennis, basketball and football. There is also an outside bar, with rooftop waterfall raining down into the large pool, several pool tables, air hockey, table football and table tennis under shade from the sun so lots to keep kids occupied; though ours rarely tired of the enormous pool. There is also a small handy shop. The restaurant is clean and bright, it's lovely to sit under the roof dome next to the enormous windows overlooking the pool, and the food is beautifully, artfully presented. There is a weekly barbecue, a choice of dishes each night that are usually well known favourites with a Canadian twist like and there are always chips available for the less adventurous. The entertainment varies with a simple repetitive mini disco most nights, a main act and bingo in the pool bar. We really enjoyed the Inter Drag Act and the Mexican daredevil act but the dancing could have been more interactive and the live music more modern. Our bungalow was surprisingly spacious and well fitted out, however the beds in the lounge were not very comfortable and the only air con unit in the bedroom did not really give us much relief as we slept in the lounge. Having our own little terrace was lovely in the evenings! The resorts location is fairly isolated with the children's activity/ theme park, Holiday World and a mostly desolate shopping centre, (selling all of the essentials), 10 to 15 minutes walk away being the only amenities available on foot. There are several cats in the resort that the pool bar staff routinely feed, however, they are clean and keep their distance from the tourists; unless you call them over! The beach is lovely and long with lovely clear water, (we could see fish), but beware it gets rocky underfoot the further you go out. The sand dunes are stunning and easy to get to, however the sand at the time of year we went is unbearable in flip flops and so impossible to climb the dunes without trainers or walking boots. The free bus picks up from the resort throughout the morning and drops back throughout the afternoon. There are an assortment of shops and shopping centres making self catering an easy option and many pharmacies surrounding the area, the nearest being just a 2 minute taxi drive from the resort. Aqualand is a must to visit, we didn't think it would measure up to Tenerife's Siam Park but we were pleasantly surprised. We booked with our rep at the resort and got there as the park opened and so jumped the queues and went straight in; we were able to look around the park and then go straight onto some of the rides without any queues really forming until lunchtime. Our children were able to do go on all of the slides except one; tip - check the closing times of the rides as a couple close before the rest do! Beware; in the beach area there are reps selling holiday packages and African sellers who are very pushy, the African ladies we ran into tied bracelets around our arms and would not take no for an answer, demanding to look in our wallets for money to pay for them, give them a wide berth if you can! If you like watersports, 6 euros will get you to Playa Del Ingles beach where there are so many activities on offer and not so many rocks in the sea! We really enjoyed our holiday, it was inexpensive, the people were friendly, the weather was very hot and we didn't have to look far for fun!!More

Sarah R,

Cant wait to go back again :-)

Well what can I say.. lets put it this way we have just come home a few hours ago from staying here for a week and we are already writing reviews about how good this place is, that should tell you something about how much we enjoyed it here, we could not find fault, the wifi and air con was cheaper than most other places that we have been. the staff are all very friendly and the vast majority speak very good English and also few other languages which we didn't understand :-) the very large pool and bungalows was very clean and would put most English resorts to shame. both the indoor restaurant and poolside bar did lovely food. the walk to the beach and promenade (which we would highly recommend) is about 25 mins away which was ok as all flat no hills but can always take the free bus they have on or just take a taxi for 4 euros, there is a shop on site that has nearly everything you can want and is not over priced in anyway, but trust me you will have to ask where it is then kick yourself for having missed it :-) already looking into going back next year and taking our 10 year old daughter with us as we know she will love it there and cant wait, thank you so much for making our honeymoon so memorable :-) Mr+Mrs Powell xMore

Best Holiday Ever

We (myself my husband and our five year old) have just returned a few days ago from staying at the caybeach and we just want to go back. The bungalows are lovely. Some people say the are basic but we have been self catering a few times in Greece and Cay beach are far from basic when you compare them. We had a one bedroom bungalow and it was lovely and spacious. Our little one slept on a sofa bed in the living area and he slept fine. The rooms are lovely and clean and so is the pool and the main reception area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a pool bar which serves snacks throughout the day. We are there a couple of times and it was lovely. They do stuff like toasties, burgers, pizza etc and its all very reasonably priced. We ate out every evening. We got a taxi to faro and there are some amazing restaurants (and shops) along the sea front. Maximillians, House and Grand Italia were the favourites. There are sometimes taxis waiting out the front but if not you can ask at reception and they will phone one. They arrive in less than 5 mins. There is a small shop right next to reception which stocks all the basic stuff and its not too badly priced either. One thing I would put. You certainly don't need to set your alarm clock to reserve your sunbed. They are locked up until around 9.30am but there was still the few hardcore folk sitting out since goodness knows when waiting for them. All in all it was a really good holiday far better than we imagined and even though I always said I would never go back to the same place twice I would certainly make an exception for cay beach.More
