A very charming hotel offering secluded feel. The surrounding areas are not nice, but you are completely excluded from the surrounds by the mature garden. The swimming pool is good (large and deep), but too cold in December even for Northern people.

Located in Telde, in the northern coast of Gran Canaria island , Hotel Rural Cortijo San Ignacio Golf is a lovely 4 star …More
If you want a quiet, secluded villa with all the mod cons then this is the place for you. The Myside villas are the best ones. NB you will need a car here also if you need to be bars, restaurants and clubs then this is not the place for you.
Lovely surrounds, peaceful and we went off season between the lull before the end of the Brit season and the beginning of the Scandinavian season. The hotel seemed half full which we were not complaining about as ample sun beds and the restaurant was half empty so had the pick of the lot.
Pluses, nice setting, construction and use of marble and stone gave it that 4 star appeal. Smart and clean and decour seemed new and no signs of decline, damage or wear or tear on the fixtures and fittings. Plenty of choice of food and the all inclusive included glasses or plastic cups.
Even the flowerbeds were spotless, as I witnessed the Gardner one early morning pruning and then sweeping the flower beds so that the texture of the soil made it look like a pristine sand bunker on a top class golf course.
The staff were pleasant and helpful, well turned out and smart in appearance and command of english excellent.
Rooms were massive and a large balcony area to boot. Bathroom was large with a unusually large bath with shower attachment.
Some nice extras were the accoutrements such as shaving gel, toothbrush and toothpaste, to a comb and sewing kit.
All in all excellent holiday and for a bit extra definitely a step up from its sister hotel directly across which is a 3 star, downside to me I couldn't find anywhere to watch the sports so a trip to Mogan (beautiful fishing village and worth the trip only 5 mins) or Puerto Rico ( bit of a Blackpool) had to be endured :-)
The hotel was a great find. The rooms were clean and spacious, beds comfortable. The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels provided as needed. There was a good quality restaurant providing meals (we had half board).
There was daily night time entertainment, including a mini-disco for 30 - 45 minutes, which kids and adults enjoyed. Then followed by a pre-show and some form on nightly family entertainment - either magic shows, dancing or acrobats.
There are child care facilities for little ones from 11 - 1 pm and again from 3 - 5pm daily. The children are well looked after and seem to enjoy this alot. The staff providing the children and adult entertainment are very engaging, caring and friendly.
There were two good size pools and many sunbeds available. A decent quality gym and tennis court. Daily games are arranged by staff for children and adults alike, eg. : Sjoelen, Petanque, archery and table tennis.
There is a free bus service which takes you to either Maspalomas / Playa de Ingles beach every day, this is 5 minutes drive from the hotel. You could walk it, but with little children it may be a bit far.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would gladly recommend this to family and friends.
