Second time here and we did notice some differences in resort as last time was June/July and this time was in September/Oct.
The whole Maspalomas/Melonaras area was busier which actually made it more enjoyable. Playa D'Ingles was it's usual bustling self and Yumbo Centre was again, a lot more busier but still bargains to be gained with some good old fashioned haggling.
As to hotel, once again it was fantastic and we met up with staff members that remembered us from last year and came to say hello.
We had a room near the pool area which was ideal and of a good standard as usual. Hotel is in a brilliant location and is one of the reasons we choose it, but it has lots to offer for a relaxing time.
I would still say that is not necessarily a hotel geared for children so bear that in mind when looking those with families as a little checking before will stop you being disappointed.
Can I mention some staff members, Zuzanne, Paloma, Miguel, Francisco, Basillio and Soraya, only a few I know but these are special to us for the fantastic service they gave all week as I'm sure all others do as well.
We will be re-visiting here again in 2018 most definitely.
