We had a fantastic holiday, not just because of the resort but because for the accommodation as well. You have everything you want at Chequers and the people in the other apartments are very friendly. We would recommend Chequers to anybody.
Not what we expected
Good bits = Great balcony, well stocked kitchen, quiet location.
Bad bits = no internet or WiFi for 2 weeks so no TV, broken dvd player, not as clean as we would have liked.
Did receive compensation eventually but a spoilt holiday.
Internet was down unfortunately and was out of my control as it was a issue at moviestar and returned to full usage on there last day which wasn’t ideal as for the cleaning part I get my cleaner to send me pictures of the place after she finishes so I don’t believe that I have replaced the DVD player, I did give them £200 compensation and a free week something that wasn’t mentioned also why go away and stay in just to watch TV and browse the Internet I agree it’s wasnt ideal but surely not the issue that they made it out to be either way all is sorted now
Fantastic sun terrace and everything you’ll need !
Lovely property with a great, large sun terrace area. It has everything that you’ll need to enjoy your holiday (no hair dryer when we stayed so ladies take note!). It has WiFi which is free to use and the tv’s in the living area and bedroom use android boxes which are also connected to the WiFi. This means that sometimes it does slow down but we found it perfect for updating FB profiles with pictures of us loafing around in the sunshine on the terrace ! The kitchenette is well stocked with crockery, utensils etc. and there is a 2 ring electric hob, small grill type oven, toaster, kettle etc. Everything you’ll need. It’s in a great location with just a short walk before you start hitting bars, restaurants and a supermarket. Another 5 mins and you’re at the beach. The main commercial centre is about a 10 min walk from the beach and is rammed full of cheap bars, restaurants, gift shops, designer label shops etc.
The walk back to the apartment is uphill but we found that breaking it up by having a beer in a bar was perfect ! We walked into Puerto Rico everyday and night and never used a taxi once.
Communications with Jamie the owner were great and Lorraine who looks after the property was very helpful and a lovely lady !
We can’t wait to go back !
Better than we expected.
The apartment was as we expected from reading the previous reviews. it was perfect for the two of us. We spent every day on the terrace chilling out in the lovely weather. There is a small shop behind that provided everything we needed. The location was peaceful with some amazing views it you climb the surrounding hills. In the evenings we would walk down the hill into the town to have a meal. The walk back up was sometimes challenging but most people used the very cheap taxi service.
We were not too impressed with the main restaurant/shopping area in Peurto Rico. The prices were quite expensive, and we were bombarded with shop/restaurant owners trying to get our money. The place was also extremely busy with tourists. The Wig Wam Bar by the marina was our favorite for good quality drinks, service and atmosphere. The all you can eat Chinese buffets were also good value for money. Peurto Mogan was worth a trip by boat or bus. Although we fond the town a little over over the top, is was great to get back to the apartment at night and sit out under the stars with a nightcap or two.
Great place to just chill out & relax! Peaceful but near enough to restaurants & nightlife too.
Great place for a couple or 2 friends. Everything you could need is supplied. Lovely, spacious terrace for sunbathing & dining on. Great pool area too. Never too busy so it's a peaceful getaway. Plenty of sunshine. Near enough to restaurants, bars & shops when you want them without being disturbed by them when you don't.
Used public transport on this visit. Frequent & great value to get anywhere around the island.
Amazing Spa in Maspalomas.
Next time I want to check out the zoo & revisit Aqualand.
I'd fly straight back out there tomorrow if I could. ☀️🌴🏖🍨
Thank you so much for your great review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and you are welcome back anytime
Perfect location and amazing sun terrace
From the moment we arrived it felt like home. Located in a perfect spot, quiet and tranquil yet close enough to all the main attractions. The sun terrace here is simply to die for, from the moment the sun rises in the morning it stays on the balcony right up till sunset. With comfortable seating and loungers you can easily loose a day or two simply sitting in the sun eating and reading a good book. The apartment is fitted out to a high standard, good facilities including a washing machine meaning you can travel light. We spent many evening lounging on the terrace watching a film in the evening sun. A short walk down the hill and your right in the heart of the town. The beaches are close and plenty to choose from. Would defiantly recommend this apartment for a short break or even A long let during the UK winter months. Top marks all round
Always welcome back !!
Puerto Rico is renowned for being the sunniest spot in Gran Canaria, so if you like it hot - this is the place to be!
During high season, the resort is bustling with holidaymakers who come to enjoy a day out on its small and beautiful beach. In addition, Puerto Rico offers a wide selection of watersports activities, ranging from jet skiing, sailing, diving, big-game fishing and windsurfing, to leisure excursions such as pleasure boat trips along the coast, dolphin-watching cruises or trips in glass-bottomed boats to discover the rich underwater life of the area.
This resort really does have a family friendly feel to it and you will find lots of children playing on the golden sand. A gentle breeze is always blowing and the sea is calm, offering ideal conditions for a dip in the warm waters of the Atlantic.
A popular public swimming pool is situated a short distance from the beach amidst the exotic plants and flowers of a lush tropical garden. Other attractions include golf courses, a water park featuring entertainment for people of all ages and a handy shopping centre nearby.
The resort provides abundant amenities, with plenty of beach front bars and cafés, easy parking, readily available sunbeds, sunshades and numerous shower facilities. Local buses run from all major destinations and are cheap and reliable.
