Reviewed 12 October 2017

Good location, friendly & helpful staff. The hotel is ok but it's a bit sad & tired & could do with a little modernisation in the public areas. The room was a good size but again, it needs a little TLC.

Room Tip: Higher up is quieter

After 4 nights in this hotel I was glad to leave. Like Elaine I had 4 sleepless nights due to the very noisy bar next door. Not the hotel's fault but a warning that it is situated in the middle of the bar area might have helped. Apartt from this,the hotel is very basic, no toiletries in the bathroom, pay extra for a safe (2.75 euros per day) and wife also extra (12 euros for 3 days) does its reputatin no good. The beds are not comfortable and the breakfasts at 8 euros each are hardly worth the money.
Should be downgraded to 3 stars at best

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - ours was very noisy

We recently completed a 4 night stay at this Hotel Currently it has a 4 Star rating but, in my view, it is only worth a 3 star one. It is very basic in its facilities. For example, no toiletries are provided in the bathrooms, wifi is at extra cost and breakfasts are no better than average. We did not have any extra meals in this hotel so cannot rate them.
Dining room staff were a bit thin on the ground but those that were there were quietly efficient.
We booked through Booking.com as the only travel agents visible are either German or Scandinavian. No sign of any UK based ones.
Pricewise, initially not too expensive but when you add on all the extras, wifi,safe, etc., it soon mounts up

Like one of the other reviewers (golfer), I too read the reviews after booking through a travel agent who merely said average reviews. I was trying to keep an open mind knowing you can't please all of the people all of the time but unlike the golfer who happened to be there at the same time, I found the noise from the bars and strip clubs to be too much even with the doors closed and curtains drawn. The hotel was clean but dated, the food was usually lukewarm at best and very much aimed at the continental clientele. Not a lot of choice for us but we are plain eaters. Getting a table was a nightmare as the dirty plates were left lying. You usually had to hunt for glasses and cutlery if you managed to get a table. The room was a good size but unfortunately right at the lifts (711) so if the bar noise didn't keep you awake the ding doing of the lifts did. The pool area is really below standard and the loungers are only fit for the tip. It is in a great location if you are wanting to be in the biz so naturally the noise won't bother you because you are the ones making it. Definitely wouldn't go back to that hotel again.

Room Tip: The pool side rooms are supposed to be quieter but overlook a car park and the grotty pool area.

After reading the various reviews on here since booking our stay at the Las palmeras and the fact that we were flying with Ryanair filled me with so much dread that I really wasn't looking forward to coming here at all.

But I can honestly say what a pleasant surprise I had.

The hotel is in the perfect spot overlooking the harbour, the room was big with a massive bed and bathroom, very clean, the housemaid replenished the towels every other day.

The food is tasty and hot, adequate choice, albeit the sweet selection tends to consist of various coloured mousse, could do with more cakes maybe? If your a profiterole lover then you'll be in heaven!  the restaurant has recently been refurbished and is very modern.

The breakfast can get quite hectic with people vying for tables which I'm sure could be resolved if they opened up the extra seating areas that they have.

The staff are helpful, friendly and hard working.

The pool area is lovely with a well stocked bar, though is need of upgrading as are the sunbeds but they are usable, we didn't struggle to find spare ones but I'm sure in peak season this would be a problem.

The pool bar closes at 7 which means the lobby bar can get quite busy at certain times.

Alternatively the beach is just across the road where you can get 2 sunbeds and a parasol for €10, and also free WiFi!

Yes the hotel does need updating, they are obviously doing this in stages as it is very big.

I would say it is more a 3 star than 4.

There isn't much in the way of entertainment, some bingo, Spanish dancing and a quiz, the dj is a friendly chap who tries his best to get everyone involved,  but then you are in the prime position to go out to the nearby bar and restaurant area.

There are a lot of golf parties that stay here, who do tend to monopolize the restaurant, bar and pool areas,  in they're large numbers, it can be quite intimidating with the less respectful members of the parties who are loud and use bad language with no respect towards other hotel guests, some of which are quite mature and also some children.

We arrived late on the Saturday night and the London bar opposite was bouncing, the noise didn't affect us as we requested a quiet room and to be honest the doors and walls are quite well soundproofed for the noise.
 
I honestly don't understand the negative comments that others have left on here, you get what you pay for, we were all inclusive and found it excellent value for money, if you want 4 or 5 star facilities then you will need to pay a bit more for it elsewhere.

I would definitely return here.
