Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The Iguazu apartment block is just 3 minutes from the Yumbo Centre. Our flat is at the back of Iguazu overlooking a large area of bungalows with the sea in the background. It is amazingly quiet with no traffic or street noise.
The complex has two swimming pools and two tennis courts and, on the ground floor, a number of good restaurants and a 24 hour clinic.
The main beach of Playa del Ingles is about ten minutes away and the entry to the dunes through the RIU Palace about the same. Buses stop outside the flats and take you all over the island.
The complex is not used by tour operators. Most of the flats are one bedroom and noisy groups are very unusual.
Smokers are welcome but we ask you to use our pleasant balcony

The Gran Canaria region
1000 kilometres south of mainland Europe this part of Spain has sun all year. The South of the island is basically a desert, though now well watered to provide lush and exotic surroundings to complement guaranteed sun. The resort has grown from nothing forty years ago to now providing anything a holidaymaker could want.
It is developed around a number of 'centres' one of the largest being the Yumbo almost next door to our flat. But don't neglect the rest of the island. The north is much lusher and with the interior rising to 6,000 feet in an island only 50 kilometres wide there are fabulous days out to be had sightseeing, walking,trekking, biking etc.
Then Las Palmas is Spain's seventh largest city with great shopping, restaurants museums, a cathedral and concert halls and theatre.
Buses from outside the building take you all over the island so it is easy to get to Las Palmas. The Airport, Vecindario ( shopping, especially in the Atlantico centre) Puerto Mogan or Puerto Rico. days out to the Waterpark, Palmitos Park and Sioux City are very easy too.
Playa Del Ingles
Playa del Ingles boasts a lively evening and night time scene with lots of English, Irish and Scandinavian bars and restaurants. There are even a lot of Spanish ones! There is a casino in San Agustin and a more sophisticated scene in Meloneras where one of the Hotels was voted number 2 in the world. You can't fail to enjoy an evening anywhere within a few minutes of the flat.
During the day there is the beach, and what a beach. A three kilometre peninsula backed by dunes that reach 50 metres. There are quiet areas a little back from the sea and lots of beach beds arranged at intervals along the beach. One short stretch is an official nudist beach.
The Palacio de Congressos in Maspalomas hosts a number of events during the year which spill over into the life of the town, e.g fashion shows. The Carnival (usually February) is one of the largest and most colourful in the world and in May there is a Gay Pride event which is spectacular with shows and parades.
