Full Board buffet meals. Hot and cold snacks 10.30-17.00. Afternoon cakes.
Selected alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including self-service beer, wine, water and soft drinks with lunch and dinner.
Snacks at set times.
Two large pools wind their way around. Dotted with palm trees and plenty of sunbeds to catch the rays. There's also a poolside bar nearby for drinks and snacks. One pool is heated during the winter months.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with live cooking stations. Fortnightly Canarian or South American themed dinners are laid on. Your main course at dinner can be served at your table, on request. If you're on Half Board, dinner can be swapped for a picnic lunch, and early suppers can be arranged. There's a dress code here, with long trousers and a shirt for gentlemen at dinner. Highchairs are also available.
Twin rooms are light and airy. You can sleep four in here with twin beds and a double sofa-bed in the bedroom. Just so you know, when the room is fully occupied there’s no space for a cot. They are also located on the lower floors, not in the main building.
The junior suite has a separate lounge area complete with a 32-inch flatscreen TV. It sleeps up to four in twin beds or a king-size bed and an extra sofa-bed. A sliding door opens up to a balcony or terrace with views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Just returned after staying at this hotel for a week. It's a beautiful hotel, very clean, friendly staff, and in a brilliant place!! A lot of complaints about sun beds, yes I agree a lot were reserved but there was always a pile of sun loungers at the side which you could just put out yourself, also the adult area always had free loungers so never had much of an issue!! Food was a bit same old but my partner enjoyed it especially the full English breakfast every morning (maybe I'm just fussy!!) and i didn't find it fair how men had to wear long trousers yet females came in hardly dressed in flip flops etc, felt like it was double standards!! My biggest gripe is paying for the safe, I've never had to pay before in other hotels!! The bar staff were super friendly especially Felipe who was usually on bar sunset!! I will definitely return to this hotel in the near future as me and my partner really enjoyed our stay!!! :)More
Stayed for 7 nights. The location of this hotel is perfect. Beach, restaurants and water sports only a stones throw away. The hotel has improved since our last visit in 2007. The rooms are modern and comfy with great air conditioning. The cleanliness and food is worthy of a five star. I cannot find one negative thing to say about our stay. We will be back next year.More

I have been coming since I was 14 I'm now 28!
I have seen some changes this time round. I still have a few days left but I thought I would write review now as I watch my son involved in the mini disco. We have been put in 4040 top floor which has such a stunning view of the sea, sunset and mountains. The service is outstanding, I love how friendly they are and always at hand. My son is always occupied. I have had a few beauty treatments which was at a high standard. I would highly recommend! The complaints of the sun beds I agree. I have a suggestion as it worked at another hotel. Change the system completely. If people want the towels they have to be signed for every morning at a reasonable time and only those towels can be used by the pool side then they must be handed in by the end of the day otherwise will be charged. If anyone places a different towel to reserve a bed before this time they will be taken away. I can understand this will cause more washing but it would reduce the complaints of the sun bed situation which can be off putting for new comers and would mean we would have to stop getting up at stupid o'clock. You could also just stop people from reserving sun beds before 8. But as I can see you all care about the running of the hotel and have probably tried these ideas already.
I intend to keep coming back. I love it here and I have been round the world and still get drawn back here time and time again. The location is perfect with the beach just on the door step. Food is lovely and such a choice for my fussy son. The entertainment is good and I will be sad to go. I have been very poorly this year and it have been such a needed holiday which you been a big part of helping me relax and forget all that is ahead of me like chemotherapy when I get home. Thank you guayarmina princess for many years of fantastic holidays. More

Great Hotel, Fab Holiday, Room for Improvement
We were a family of 5 staying all inclusive in August.
ARRIVAL - Check in was fast and efficient and our luggage was taken to our room for us. I had emailed ahead and asked for 'quiet' rooms, with sea view close together on a high floor. This is a must as some of the rooms don't have a great view (of a road or directly into another hotel).
LIFTS - during our stay there was always at least one lift out of order. There were other lifts but they were all quite busy. We eventually found the stairs. There is a lift which takes you down directly to the promenade and beach which is great.
ROOMS - the corridors leading to the rooms need a lick of paint as they don't have the same 4 star gleam as the rest of the hotel but saying that the rooms are spacious, well equipped and the beds are really comfy. Bathrooms were large, showers brilliant and the balconies were a good size.
POOL - nice pool although I didn't think it was big enough for the size of the hotel. There did seem to be a problem with people reserving sunbeds from around 5.30am but these were mainly the ones right next to the pool or the terrace first row overlooking the beach. You could probably get sunbeds around 7.30am if you don't mind their location.
BARS - there are plenty of bars, in the evening we would sit in the sunset bar. Special mention to Mario who was always friendly and cheerful. Pool bars did snacks if you didn't fancy the restaurant indoors for lunch. All inclusive drinks list was good.
FOOD - we all really enjoyed the food. There was lots of choice, different themed evenings, like Mexican and German. There was always choice of several hot meals, an excellent salad bar and the hot grill was on every night cooking meat and fish.
Full English every morning with omelettes and fried eggs cooked to order. Good selection of breads, cheese, ham etc too.
ENTERTAINMENT - Daytime there was lots going on from archery and pistol shooting for adults and teens, mini club for the little ones, pool games and daily aquagym which was popular. Plenty of quiet areas to sunbathe if you didn't want to get involved.
Evening, there were 2 things on every night, the usual, flamenco dancers, magic shows etc. The parrot show was entertaining but watch out for the photographer afterwards who took separate photos of our 3 teenagers with the parrots and then asked us for 30 euros for 3 photos. Felt it was a bit underhand as they didn't tell us the price before he took the photos and he could have taken 1 photo of the kids together for 10 euros.
STAFF - all friendly and extremely hard working!
All in all a good and enjoyable holiday in a hotel where the staff were generally friendly and amenities good and location great.
I would recommend this holiday to families with children or teenagers.
