The first thing I would say is that I have been visiting Gran Canaria for the last few years every April and have learnt that if you go in the days preceding Easter Sunday then you will encounter a lot of the Spanish locals. This was a blessing for us this week (I will explain) but can be intimidating if...

Hi well just back home to cold Scotland after a good week in Grancanary spent a week at Atlantic Sands. I read the last reviews on here starting from bad improving all the time.

The accomodation was actually very nice, very spacious, modern and clean, there was around 50 apartments on the complex, which was on three levels, as you walk through the front door you have the kitchen, then you walk upstairs to the bathroom and first bedroom and then up another flight of stairs to bedroom number 2, From the kitchen you...

Went to the Atlantic Sands with my wife, daughter and 8 year old grandson. We had a mixed but generally disappointing experience. On arrival on Sunday 28 October we were told we had no reservation but were put in an apartment. The next day we were told we had been expected the previous week - although I was shown a...

I've just got back from a week at Atlantic Sands. I went with my 3 children and mum and we all enjoyed ourselves but mainly spent our time away from the accommodation.

Apartments very nice and facalities pool etc good, location very poor, be prepared to spend on local taxi or car rental as the local bus stop is 20 minute walk on an unlit road. Also be ready for the sales reps to sell you a holiday package. Ask yourself if its such a good package why is this not sold...

Our resort is a small friendly resort where many families have enjoyed their holidays. Whilst we encourage all our guests to fully enjoy the facilities we have available we do so in the hope that one guests enjoyment doesn’t interfere with another guest’s enjoyment. On several occasions we asked that your children refrain from their constant “dive bombing” into the...

“If you are already booked and paid for to stay at Atlantic Sands - please ask for an apartment whose balcony / veranda faces the pool area, and not onto the building site (likes ours did!).”
