Reasons for trip


We are spending three weeks in Gran Canaria at the Don Gregory hotel in San Agustin. It is in a good location, almost on the beach, with good sea views. The whole island can be visited by bus, either from the stops just over the road from the hotel, or from the bus station in Playa del Ingles, which is a pleasant 20 minute stroll along the promenade. There are good promenade walks to east and west of the hotel, passing beaches, and rocky coastline. To the west, the promenade extends to the beautiful sands of Maspalomas, or from the promenade there are good walks into
Playa del Ingles, with its varied shopping centres and helpful tourist information office which has all the bus times in two booklets for the north and south of the island. Housed in the tourist office building is a very interesting craft shop selling all kinds of crafts all made locally on the island.

The hotel has Clean and comfortable rooms, mostly with good sea views, an excellent variety of food, and helpful and friendly staff. We have travelled with Saga, and the resident rep is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. There is one downside to beware of – the whole reception area and public rooms are on floor 3. This is the ground floor at the front, but on the sea side there are two floors below floor 3, and you really do not want a room down there! We had a room there for the first few days, it was like being in a dungeon, no sun on the balcony and people constantly walking past, and also it was below the dining room so there was constant noise, scraping of chairs etc, all the evening and very early morning. These rooms are approached along a gloomy musty corridor, smelling very damp. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel as long as you get a room on level 4 or above!
