"As a family of four we stayed at the Granada Park in August 2006 and we were very disappointed with the 'all inclusive' facilities. The bar closed at 9.00 pm every night but the evening entertainment (if there was any!) didn't start until 10.00 pm. Most people tended to head off elsewhere after the bar had closed.
There were no snacks or ice creams during the day - we were expecting toasted sandwiches/pizzas and ice creams for the children but they were never offered whilst we were there. The guests who were self catering couldn't get anything to eat at all whilst at least we could make do with the food from the dining room if we were hungry but the food was very poor and a lot of guests were complaining every evening. We ended up visiting a supermarket to buy food that the children would eat and making their meals in the apartment because they wouldn't touch the food most days.
The "entertainment" was disappointing. To join in the water polo or rifle shooting you needed to be seventeen so a lot of the teenagers missed out. One Spanish lady did both the daily and evening entertainment - very poor! The kiddies disco was a maximum of three songs (the same every night) that the younger children danced to on the stage. Then the adults entertainment was a quiz or parrot show etc.
We couldn't fault our apartment, it was very spacious and clean and cleaned frequently. We had requested a lower level because of the children and pushchairs but ended up at the top which resulted in a long walk several times a day up a steep hill! We asked to be moved as soon as we got there but our requests fell on deaf ears. Would we go again? - No!"

"Had a great week, would recommend to mainly families! Very quiet peaceful location. Pool was cleaned daily and there were plenty of free sun loungers everyday. Would not recommend to young people, bar was closed at half 9 every night. Entertainment was aimed more at families and that finished about half 10. Food was horrible.
Most food was not labeled, which created problems as it was mainly Spanish foods. Service is excellent here though. Arrived in the middle of the night and reception had packed lunches waiting for us. Bar staff were great, very friendly! Rooms are extremely spacious, big balconies with great views, large kitchen area and big bathroom! Area was nice, 10 minute walk or 2 minute taxi ride to either Las Americas or Los Cristianos. Taxis were very cheap, 25 euros to airport or 5 euros to Las Americas.
Overall, I would recommend Granada Park for anyone looking for a nice peaceful holiday!"

"Beautiful, clean apartments. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very secluded and peaceful. Had a wonderful relaxing holiday.
Only bad thing bar closed early. Good for families and couples. Clean pools. Would definitely go again. Taxi to town 5 euros and taxi to airport 25 euros. Good supermarket on site. Very pleased with overall holiday at Granada Park and considering going next summer.
Very quiet and peaceful at night. Felt safe in apartment and in complex. And didnât see one cockroach just a couple of lizards. More like a 4 star hotel."

"We arrived at the hotel at 2am and was surprised at the size of apartment we were given, it was huge. We were also given a lunch pack with sandwiches juice and a peach which was a very nice touch. I thought we had landed lucky. The room was cleaned daily and was really nice.
Unfortunately I can not say the same for the food, drink or entertainment. We only ate in the hotel 2 days as the food was awful, mainly chips with everything and a choice of 3 hot dishes which mostly consisted of fat.
The drink was local spirits and lager which finished at 9.30pm so there is a mad rush at 9.15 for everyone to get at least 8 drinks for themselves, if like us you don't realise this and go for a round after 9.30 you are charged over 8 euro for 2 of the same drinks.
It was mostly Spanish holiday makers that were there so most of the entertainment was in Spanish and when they did speak in English you couldn't understand what they were saying.
We obviously didn't hang around the hotel much so ended up spending well over 170 euro in a week on taxi's as you were 6 euro to the beach and back again, then if you went out at night you were 8 euro there and the same back plus tip. The hotel is a good 20 - 25 minutes walk from the resort and is in the middle of nowhere so I would not recommend walking home at night.
I would not recommend this hotel to my friends as it is too far away from the resort and doesn't compensate with entertainment or food but if you are only worried about it being clean and big rooms then this is for you.

"Not long back from two weeks in the Granada Park Apartments.
When we arrived, we were glad to see the rooms were big and clean. The pool area was great, my daughter (11) loved it, she was never out the pool.
We were all inclusive, thatâs where it started to go down hill. The food was not four star more like two star. The so called all inclusive drinks STOPPED at 9:30pm. This resulted in queues at 9:00pm as everyone was getting four drinks each to keep them going.
The complex was good. Would I go back - No. If anybody is thinking of going, my advice is go self catering.

"We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with very good amenities. Everything that you could want.
Maid service was six days a week, with towels changed every other day and sheets twice a week. Poolside bar staff were very friendly and the supermarket had everything that you could need. Pool and pool area were kept clean and well maintained. Would not hesitate to go back there again.
It was only a short stroll either into Los Cristianos or Las Americas, about 15 -20 minutes. Taxi from Las Americas up to apartments varied between 4 -5 euros. From airport was around 20 euros."

"Overall these apartments were very clean and looked after. The nightlife was only a short distance from the apartments but would recommend getting a taxi back to the apartments.
Denise who was the manager of the den (the bar situated in the apartments) made our holiday even more enjoyable along with his family.
The shop also situated within the resort was very convenient. We would recommend anyone to go to this resort and we will be returning in the future."

"Granada Park is a beautiful complex. A friend of my husband and I owns an apartment there and it is lovely. The complex itself is definately more of a 4 star than a 3 obviously I cannot speak for the other apartments as I have not seem them but the complex and area is great for couples and families alike. Well worth a visit.
The swimming pool is gorgeous, the on-site supermarket and pool bar are good and the cleanliness of the pool area is second to none it is cleaned every single day. There is a mini golf course and bar football and air hockey for the kids. There is also satellite TV for those wishing to keep in contact with football!"
