Recent guest reviews

Room was more than adequate for us we had a view of the car park and the mountains,as we live on the coast at home a sea view was not required.Room could do with bit of updating but was good enough. We were bed and breakfast and that was more than enough to keep us going till late afternoon,the food was of a good standard and varied. Pool area was excellent apart from the usual one who creep out early morning to reserve seats,it happened at the same seats every day.Needs to be stopped.But once we were settled we had a lovely relaxing day by the pool,apart from my wife joining in with aerobics and everything else. I am happy to say my choice of hotel for this short break was well worth the money,some people seem to say they found the staff unsmiling,wellI found them great people,especially the maid who cleaned room237. I would happily return here again. ,

We stayed here in February with friends. The hotel is in a good area which is much less busy than neighbouring Maspalomas. The main areas of the hotel offer good facilities and a very large tasty buffet breakfast. The bedrooms could perhaps do with an update but contained all we needed and the maids kept them cleaned and restocked. The pool side restaurant wasn't too good which was a shame but other good places to eat nearby. The pool areas were clean and loved the ability to change towels when needed. Attended the gym and also the brilliant aqua fit sessions lead by a young Spanish girl. She really worded us hard and I would take her back to the UK if I could. The observatory was also a lovely addition and enjoyed our hour searching the sky. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend

Very happy with choosing this hotel. Fantastic garden and pool area and delicious breakfast. Fully booked, but still felt far from crowded. Spacious breakfast restaurant and plenty of high quality loungers by the pool. Separated from the ocean only by a very scenic beach promenade. A bit dated and worn, but you can definitely tell that it is five star. Cannot be compared with four star hotels on the island. San Agustin is a bit windy, but it is so much nicer than f.ex Playa del Ingles. Shops, restaurants and the people working there are much more genuine and pleasant. There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind that reserve loungers and the ones we actually need in our society. The hotel staff should have the desency to remove anything occupying an unused lounger out of respect for the non selfish guests.

It was just a horrible experience. The Hotel is very old, the furniture is very old, the whole ambiente is ugly. The beds are very, very unconfortable. The aircon was loud and not proper working as a heating. The isolation of the windows is weak.

Lovely setting, great gardens with pool and bar. Great room although we had booked a suite which was great. Dinner - buffet every nite was a little repetitive and vegetarian food for my wife was somewhat limited. One tip - pay up for the level, there is a sep.lounge at reception level, breakfast at the poolside restaurant and a sep.pool area with drinks, well worth the extra bit on money.

We stayed Bed & Breakfast in early February 2017- the breakfast buffet was excellent albeit that we were there by 8.30am each morning. The pool area and gardens are lovely and the direct access to the boardwalk and beach is fantastic - great for an early morning or late evening walk. Location, location, location!! Overall we felt that the staff could have been more pleasant and more smiles would have been appreciated. Perfect place for a winter break.

At it seems best. Great hotel lovely and clean perfect pools and location couldn't be easier to get to and from even on public transport. Great hard working staff who make it welcoming and relaxing for your stay

Loved this hotel, everyone who worked there was more than helpful, even the maintenance chap who helped put me on the hotels wifi. Will defo go back. We went all inclusive. So had no hidden extras, and well worth it. All meals were excellent, and the entertainment which was on every night was great. 500 yes up the hill was a great shopping centre,

I read some quite negative reviews before coming here and almost changed hotels at the last minute. I kept with my gut feeling and I'm not disappointed. It is a 5 star hotel close to the airport 60 euros return in a private taxi. Booking in was not too bad kept waiting a short while and I think they could have explained things a bit better towels and breakfast etc. My room had a nice balcony although overlooking the car park but sea view was more expensive The room it's self is nice and adequate I did not need more from a room. Breakfast is probably my only slight issue there is plenty of choice for vegetarians as well some could have been a bit warmer. Coffee machine area was busy I didn't know until after day2 the waiters can bring you coffee and tea? The outside is beautiful the pool and gardens are magnificent and so well kept. You walk straight onto the beach the pool bar and cafe do lovely food and good portions. Room was well cleaned every day and staff very friendly I would defently return.

This hotel is in a perfect place for people seeking a nice and large pool area next to the sea. San Agustin is a familiar village for us but for the first time we spent a holiday in this hotel. Although we knew this is a high standard resort we were surprised to have such marvellous buffet both at breakfast and dinner time. I have never seen such a plentiful selection - and they changed it every day! We had a room on 2nd floor with a sea & garden view. It was wonderful to wake up hearing birds singing and palm leaves swishign in a wind. As a whole the hotel would be even nicer if there were more flowers or plants also in the interior - the hallways are huge and a bit deserted. Also the music played at the reception hall was quite odd - the atmosphere would be even better with a more peaceful music.
