This adults-only hotel gives you a peaceful pool scene and a beach on the doorstep. And the food’s first class, too.
This stylish hotel is tucked at the foot of a mountain, just metres from sandy Playa Taurito Beach. Its two pools come with first-class sea views. There’s a seafront restaurant, too.
In the evenings, live acts take to the stage, or you can retreat to the piano bar for a quiet cocktail. When you feel like going further afield, there’s a shuttle bus to pretty Puerto Mogan, which is less than five minutes away.

A highly recommended hotel, travelling from the airport takes little time at all, we seemed to be on the bus for no more than 30 minutes. Upon arrive at the hotel we were greeted by friendly staff and a glass of bubbly - water was available if required but let's start as we mean to go on! The hotel has just finished a massive overhaul and we were all pleasantly surprised to find spacious light and airy modern themed rooms with tasteful artwork, large bed, ample storage space and more than ample lounge areas. The bathroom was also very spacious, with a large walk in soaker shower, hair dryer, large mirror etc. The air conditioning was effective and quiet offering suitable temperature control for July. Outside the room was a balcony with table, chairs and a couple of Sun loungers - the view across to the see is a pleasant vista first thing in the morning and can be seen from most if not all rooms due to the layout against the mountainside. There's a water park which can be accessed from the hotel and costs 13 euros for the whole day, you can come and go as you please so using the facilities of the hotel is still possible therefore you won't lose any duty free entitlement and save buying lunch! We were not disappointed with any of the food at the restaurants, all provisions were either hot or chilled as required with a selection to suit most if not all tastes. The alcohol serves is branded, so for someone who cares for the odd G&T it was nice to have a choice other than the unbranded normal rubbish - just be careful how much you end up drinking as they are not tight on their measures - hick! Staff are very friendly, always have a smiley face and work incredibly hard - this includes the animation team who get you involved (if you like) without pestering you every day. The pool is separated into 2 sections one tapered and one fairly deep side, lilos, ball games and inflatables are not permitted in either side so our family was a little disappointed having purchased the world biggest inflatable swan taking up a complete hand luggage bag allowance - I did tell him! but to expected in an Adults only hotel. If you make too much noise in the pool you do get the occasional glare for pool attendant - AKA Ceelo Green. We never struggled to find a sun bed around the pool, but still decided to carry out the early morning chore of laying out towels - mainly because we were already awake, it's not an necessity though. All sun beds were in good working order and cleaned most days by the pool staff at the end of the day. I can see why many people come back to Gran Canaria, its climate is just about right, friendly people and this hotel has in my eyes has nothing negative worth noting - I would definitely return if the choices were limited but I do like to experience new places - this is certainly a hotel and resort worth visiting. Happy holidaysMore
Not a platinum hotel as claimed we had room 8011 badley fitted electrical fittings and air con hanging out wall. Food at best average certainly not platinum quality if you are a picky eater them maybe stay somewhere else. Some staff can be slow and lazy while others try hard. Would I recommend this hotel no but it does have some good points like great views but resort is quiet but that might suit some. The Three Tenors show was fantastic and almost made me rate it higher.More
Pleasant Holiday in the sun
Even a late arrival did not stop food and drink being available which was a nice welcome, hotel and facilities did not disappoint and location was good for either a quiet or not so quiet break depending on what you wanted. More
6th visit wonderful as ever.
We have been back 2 weeks from this wonderful peaceful, hotel after our 6th holiday there. We arrived on the day it reopened from the refurbishment. We had hoped for a refurbished room but had a room on level 6 which along with floor 8 were refurbished a couple of years ago. The room was lovely and clean although you still had to climb into the bath for a shower but that did not cause us any problems. It was very quiet for the first week and the wonderful staff, who had been off for 6 weeks were very attentive. We were greeted like old friends! It felt very strange as it got busier. The food was lovely as always but I felt the entertainment was a bit lacking this time. The piano bar was lovely and listening to Nicky play out on the terrace as the sun went down was perfect. We really didn't find the evening shows very inspiring with tribute bands and dance shows, we are in our 60's but the shows seemed to appeal to the older visitors. Previously there has been other musicians playing outside while the piano bar ran inside. The daytime entertainment was far less than previously with only 2 members of the entertainment team where previously there had been 5 or 6 people and the activities were much more limited this time. Having said that we had a lovely holiday and I'm sure it wont be our last visit. Oh and Gentlemen, don't forget to bring long trousers or you wont be allowed to go into the restaurant in the evening. Also to note that this is an adult only hotel in a small resort, younger guests found it rather quiet.More
Relaxing last minute break
Stayed for 1 week in July 17, booked a deluxe junior suite & emailed hotel before we went to request a high floor & quiet location. Transfer from airport was around 45 minutes & we were second drop off. Had room 9030 on ninth floor, very large room had been refurbished huge four poster style bed, large wardrobe, bathroom with large walk in shower. This room didn't have the sofa you see in post pictures so not sure it can be classed as a suite ,it had a small table & chairs, but nowhere else to sit inside the room other than the bed. The balcony end of the room was curved in shape with door to balcony which was also half circle shape & not the square/ rectangle of most of the rooms at this hotel. We had a table & 2 padded chairs on the balcony but no sun beds, did speak to reception & requested if one sun bed could be brought up & within a few minutes it arrived was just enough room for it. Air con adequate & could get some wifi reception on balcony but found it very slow & dropped out often, this was an issue around pool area as well. Food was good for breakfast & lunch , plenty of choice, dinner in main restaurant we found slightly disappointing, we did eat in The romantic restaurant & had a lovely meal with waiter service. Drinks were available all day from bars around pool either self service or during lunchtime from the bar, we were on black bands & received branded drinks & wine by the bottle at lunchtime & dinner. New gold bands allow larger choice of bottled wine but we found the black band choice was good enough for us. We didn't have any problem finding sun beds , most days we got to pool around 10-10:30, as at most hotels you do get the early birds who get up really early to get the front row overlooking pool or beach. I respect people right to smoke but personally don't like to be surrounded by it, there is a non smoking area down the steps on way to beach but it's small & popular, think there should be another non smoking area near pool. Joined in the Aqua aerobics in the pool at 11:00am which was fun. Had a lovely restful break. More
