Aquasol Apartments – Puerto Rico – Gran Canaria

We booked a package holiday at the Aquasol Aparthotel from Feb 9th to 16th 2012.

The room was basic & clean. Don’t go expecting anything posh, this is about as basic as it gets, but it’s only a two key hotel & we didn’’t pay much to stay so our expectations we not that high, especially after reading some of the other customer reviews.

However we were very happy with the apartment, flatscreen TV, kitchenette, bathroom/shower & twin bed room. It was cleaned three times in the week we were there. We did not see any ants or cockroaches.

Speaking to the helpful lady at reception (Adriana) she told me that they had recently spent a lot of money on updating security. There was a key fob only entry on to the hotel grounds, CCTV cameras everywhere & a safe in the wardrobe in you room.

The location of the hotel is at the top of a hill, it’s about a 15-20 min walk up the hill from the shops or a 3euro taxi trip. There are some steps going straight down to the bottom near the hotel, but its not for the faint hearted coming back up that way!

Some people may not like the idea of going up a hill, but we liked it as it meant the hotel was away from all the hustle & bustle & noise from the main town. Plus the views were great! We got the sun all day too.

Terraza Mar Suites – Puerto Rico – Gran Canaria

We stayed here with our 18 year old son & we thought these apartments were great. They were spotless & very friendly. The balcony was massive & the living space was ample-looking around I think we made the right choice. We have visited Gran Canaria a few times but we normally go to Melonares which is very low key, Puerto Rico was an eye opener-very lively, we enjoyed our stay & was perfect for a week.

We ate out every night & would recommend MURPHYS KITCHEN, the food was really nice & homely & the staff where first class, we went to a few nice restaurants & paid about £70 euros for the three of us but had a nicer meal at MURPHYS & it was as cheap as anything. All in all we had a great time, I would recommend these apartments you wont be disappointed.

We brought our two children aged 6 & 11. The children’s swimming pool was tiny and there wasn’t much in the way of entertainment for kids. But the apartments were clean and nice, & the staff were friendly & helpful throughout our stay.

I wouldn’t recommend it for families only for the above reasons, but it’s perfect for couples seeking a comfortable & relaxing holiday with good size balconies & lovely views over Puerto Rico, a big swimming pool (adult) with pool bar & close to the centre.

Not a bad holiday deal for the money, just not ideal for children.

Been to Gran Canaria 6 times before, & usually stay at Colina Mar. First for this hotel: well the hotel is lovely, the best pool area I have seen, & the sun is out from 9am to 8pm, no shade, excellent. The rooms basic & cleaned every day, location in between Europa Centre & town, taxi 4 euros to town.

Entertainment: pretty bad. Parrot show, snakes & local singers, and bar shuts at 11pm.

Went for a two week holiday in these apartments at the end of November, just me & my partner. The rooms were very clean on arrival, our room was room 307 right opposite the lift. The bedrooms also faced the lift, so we had a lot of noise with people coming & going at all times in the morning, so not much sleep, then there’s the added noise of the discos from the centre down below, going on till at least 3am!
