Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, Your Home Away From Home

Maspalomas is arguably the oldest tourist town in Gran Canaria, and is situated on the southern part of the island. With its stunningly beautiful beaches, it is not hard to see why holidays in Maspalomas are becoming increasingly popular. Although there are many hotels here, it is far better to rent a villa a little farther out from the town. Self catering accommodation in Maspalomas is of the highest standard, and acts as a good base to enjoy a wonderful vacation which is centred on beach activities.

Things to Do on Holiday in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

Activities whilst on holidays in Maspalomas are mainly centred on either the beach or the sea. This is hardly surprising, given just how beautiful it is! A full range of water-based leisure activities are available such as water skiing, windsurfing, snorkelling and much more. The impressive sand dunes offer camel rides, which make for a fun few hours, and there is also a golf course as well, with the dunes and ocean providing an incredible backdrop.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

Maspalomas itself has very little culture attached to it. Sure, there are bars, restaurants and taverns, but those seeking a little history will be disappointed. Instead, holidays in Maspalomas are more suited to those who like modern, fun diversions. The biggest water-park on the island is to be found just outside the town, and its many waterslides and features will keep people of all ages entertained. An ornithological park has many species of butterflies and orchids, and quite randomly, there is a wild west theme town called Sioux City.

Weather in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

The excellent weather is one of the main attractions of considering holidays in Maspalomas. As with the rest of the canary Islands, the weather seems to be perfect all of the year round. It very rarely drops below and average of 14 degrees Celsius at night, even during what is laughingly called the winter, and the day time high averages are consistently above twenty degrees. The hottest months of July, August and September see average temperatures of 27 degrees Celsius. There is virtually no rainfall here, and although January is the wettest month, there are barely more than 6 days when it rains, and the average for the month is just 34 mm.

Travel to Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

Most tourists on holidays in Maspalomas will arrive by air, and will land at Gran Canaria Airport (LPA). This airport is the fifth busiest in Spain, which is a testament to just how popular Gran Canaria is. One curious fact, is that the extra-long runways mean that it was an alternative landing place for the Space Shuttle. Assuming you are not arriving by Space Shuttle, however, you will be flying on one of the dozens of airlines that land and take off here every week. These include easyJet, Monarch, Jet2, Thomson Airways and BMI Baby. Fly from UK airports such as East Midlands (EMA), Exeter (EXT), Newcastle(NCL), Birmingham (BHX), Cardiff (CWL) and Glasgow (GLA).

                                                                                                    Went with the family (grandparents, sister, my daughter and I) over the Easter break (April 2017). Had some initial trouble finding the place becuase the map on the website sent us into the centre of the resort but with the help of a friendly hotel receptionist who pointed us up the hill to where the Bahia apartments were, we soon found the place (becareful with the numbering outside, often two are listed). After that very minor drama, we were shown around and could settle in. Being a little out of the resort centre in was pretty quiet, which was nice, although it also wasn't too long to walk into the heart of the town (approx. 10-15 minutes walk). Parking at the property being under cover was helpful, so you didn't have to get into a stifflingly hot car. Parking in town was at a premium so we used to walk most of the time. There's a decent local shopping centre a couple of minutes drive away on the way out to the 'motorway' GC-1. Kitchen in villa had pretty much all the equipment we needed, fridge was a decent size and it was handy to have a dishwasher. Other rooms were all of a decent size and I think all the bedrooms had their own air-con units (which we didn't actually nned to use despite the lovely weather). The place was nicely decorated and there were some helpful leaflets provided giving information on things to do around the island. I know it's a holiday but it was also helpful to have a decent WiFi connection. The pool area was ashort walk out of the back of the property. A large area with a decent size pool. There were also sun loungers and umbrellas. Despite being a school holiday in the UK the place was fairly quiet whenever we went; there was never any issue getting beds in a nice spot and the pool was certainly never crowded. Occasional noise (enteratinment & music) from an aprtment complex across the street but this never went on much past 10 O'clock so wasn't really an issue. The owner was helpful with requests prior to our stay and friendly when we met him. Do use pictures on website as a guide to level of luxury; it was fine for us, but everyone is different. Also be mindful of distance to town and beach (approx 5 min wlak downhill). Overall, we really enjoyed our break and that was assisted by the quality and value of the property. Already thinking about going back again next year, so that has to say something, i guess.

We found the location to be quite central to local towns and beaches although a rental car is a good idea (taxis are pretty reasonable too). The villa has been presented in a modern comfortable style, with all needs catered for. We travelled as two families so the villa was perfect as being on two levels gave us all our own space. Having 3 young children staying it was important that we felt they were safe, which they definitely were. We can't recommend this property highly enough and the very helpful owners Roberto and Olivia were lovely :) if you're looking for a great holiday destination look no further! X

The villa itself is beautiful and very homely. It is extremely clean, the gardens are also kept very neat and the pool is just perfect for cooling down. Our 5 year old son spent the entire week in there 👍🏻👍🏻 There are a few restaurants and bars just a very short walk from the villa as well as a handy supermarket for all of your essentials and the beach is also 10/15 min walk away making the villa perfectly located. We will definitely be returning.
