Our holiday apartment is in San Agustin, an attractive relaxing resort, twenty five minutes drive from the airport, in the sunny south of the island of Gran Canaria.
The resort has a safe sandy beach, with watersports, bar/restaurant and coastal walkway that reaches to Maspalomas and it's famous sand dunes. Gran Canaria is a sub- tropical island with a climate to match. The average temperature is 25 degrees centigrade, making it an ideal year round holiday destination.
The Canary Islands belong to Spain but are located off the Western coast of Africa, on a level with southern Morocco. Gran Canaria is described as a mini continent because of the variety of landscapes to be found there, from the endless sandy beaches in the south, made for basking in the sun all year round, to the dramatic rock formations and mountains of the interior and the island's capital Las Palmas located in the north, an exciting cosmopolitan city with it's own beaches, elegant stores and a broad range of cultural activities.
Las Lomas is a well run, secure/private complex, right on the coast. It has a pool with sun beds and shades and gardens with tropical plants.
The apartment is fully furnished and well equipped.It has one twin bedroom with two single beds and one double bedroom bed. The lounge has a Corner Sofa which comfortably seats 4 people. The kitchen has been upgraded and has a washing machine, a microwave and a small oven. We have also refurbished the bathroom which now has a Walk in shower and we provide towels. The balcony has sea views but we are not on the beach itself. There is a very useful clothes airer on the balcony. You can wash your clothes, hang them out to dry, go to the beach and everything will be dry on your return :)
We have wi fi in the apartment which we felt was an essential.
All linen, including beach towels, is provided. The apartment is fully serviced before and after your arrival including a welcome pack.
We have a small library of a variety of easy read novels that you are welcome to read during your stay.
We are located in a peaceful area and all amenities are easily reached. A variety of shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance and if you'd like to go further afield the local buses and taxis are efficient and economical; there is a taxi rank right opposite Las Lomas. There's a small bar at the entrance to the complex where drinks, ices and snack meals are served, so if you don't feel like going too far after a long day at the pool or beach, you don't have to!
