I went to Gran Canaria in August 2011 with my sister. We chose to stay at Riu Palmeras ando enjoy a lot: very clean, nice staf, very good food, nice pool, beatiful gardens and good service, close to beach, supermarket, bars ando shops.
I'm very happy for chosing this hotel e will certaly chose it again.

Sisters wth 31 and 27 years old.

Im a Travel Agent in England and stayed here for a week at the end of July.
A wonderful stay, all staff were very friendly, polite and always very helpful.
The room was always cleaned on a daily basis to the highest level !!!
The food was 1st class all the way, breakfast and evening meal.
Entertainment every evening with some really good performances.
10 mins walk to the beach with bars and restaurants on the front.
Local shops 2 mins away.
One thing i will say is that the bed was very hard :(

I have to agree with the previous reviewers the hotel has exceptional standards in cleanliness and food. I am getting hungry again remembering the fantastic buffet style breakfasts and dinners (we went half board). While there are birds around I wasn't put off by them - and I am terrified of them! The pool while not deep is great as you can walk around it.......for the non swimmers like myself. Do be sure to book in for a meal to the 'Sir William Restaurant' for a set menu, you need to book one day in advance but it is worth it. The staff are amazingly friendly and always smiling - so much so I thought they must get a bonus - but no, when we were out having a coffee after the diningroom closed the guys were inside laughing and joking and dancing to the music on the outdoor stage, David the maitre'd is very helpful. Beach not far but be aware the shortest route is via stairs, be sure to get your beach food in the supermarket across the road from the hotel as the beach shops are quite expensive for water in comparison.

Room Tip: the higher the floor the better the view - we were on the top - amazing views

A very nice hotel. An oasis in a hectic Playa del Ingles. The bungalow had two floors, which was ideal for us travelling with a small child. The beds (including the travel cot) were very hard, but somehow we got used to it quickly. The room was very tidy and well planned, although the interior design reminded us a bit of 1985. The staff was very friendly both to us and to our son, even though the lack of English knowledge amongst the staff sometimes made it difficult for us to communicate. The most visitors were pensioners, which made the hotel area quiet and relaxed, but it would have been fun with a couple of more kids at the pool area. The pool area itself was nice, but the floor of the pool was very slippery so watch out! The breakfast buffet was very good and fresh.

Room Tip: Avoid the bungalows in the first row facing street
