Second visit

Posted 22-Jun-2014
Pros: Location. Close to Playa del Ingles & Maspalomas beaches. Holiday world over the road & super markets close by. They have swimming pools too
Cons: A little dated and tired. remember though this is a budget complex. I would happily go back.
Location: Holiday world over the road. Near to Aqualand and plenty of busses & taxi's pass by so you can easily get about.
I have stayed at the Koala gardens on my last visit. Remember prior to booking this is at the budget end of the market. Personally all I want is a room a bed and a bathroom. The added bonus of air conditioning helps keep the room cool at night.

The hotel, was dated but clean and tidy. it was a bit further away from the beach than we had thought, about an half hour walk, or you could use the free bus provided. Free WiFI would have been a bonus, as its always nice to keep in touch with those at home.

Easy , cheap and basic

Posted 11-Nov-2013
Pros: Spacious cheap room
Cons: Staff not friendly on reception bad advice. Fresh towels everyday and better maid service.
Location: Nothing to do in the area unless you like slot machines and ten pin bowling or walking. Long walk to town.
Good apartments but be prepared to walk to the centre and the beach In a week we must have walked 150 kilometers. Maid service not efficient. Pool for kids and then one for adults around the corner which was good. Clean and spacious when we first arrived which looked value for money. I would stay here again but for us it was too far from anywhere especially the beach. The bus is predictable timings be prepared to get pushed by the elderly Northern Europeans to get on board in the mornings to ride to the beach.

Very basic hotel with urgent need to be updated

Posted 05-Nov-2013
Pros: Number of swimming pools
Cons: Lots.
Location: There are some bars and restaurants, beautiful beach, fun fair. You can fly in a helicopter, go on the submarine, go to dolphinarium...
Very basic hotel. Some bits need to be exchanged asap- broken shower head, yellow toilet seats, ripped old bed linen. Fairly good food. Swimming pool areas were not being cleaned every day. The stay was v cheap- so may say- good value for money... They provide free transport to the amazing, beautiful beach, though. Nice, polite staff, well- most of them.

carefree and relaxing holiday

Posted 31-May-2013 on Hotels.com
Being a huge fan of the Canaries in general, this holiday again was nothing but relaxing and good fun. The apartments are clean and spaceous, with little terraces overlooking several outdoor pools. Never any problems with noise and the staff were always very eager to help. We met quite a few guests who had been coming back to Koala for years. When you get into the airport the number 66 bus will take you in the direction of Maspalomas and will drop you a few minutes walk from the main reception (walk past the little complex with a few bars/restaurants & bowling alley - down through the underpassage which avoids crossing the road and when you come out you will see signs leading you to reception). These apartments are about a 5 minute drive (or a 20/30 min stroll) from the beach but at reception they will give you a little card which permits you to use a shuttle service to and from Koala for free (alternatively a taxi is about 3 euros each way). In general I think this was incredible value for price and I would definitely go back to Koala again!

Pleasant stay

Posted 09-May-2012
Pros: Air conditioning
Cons: Room key card was sometimes tempremental
Location: Suited me fine as was located near main routes to Maspalomas & Playa del Ingles as well as the GC-1
Location suited us as it was central for the road network. Room was more than adequately equipped. Kitchenette was small but had two ring hob, microwave oven, coffee maker, kettle and toaster, and, fridge.all of which worked perfectly. Maids came round every day bar one to make up beds. We did not use Restaurants as we were self catering. Small supermarket nearby and others not too far away. Only small issue was that all room electrics (except fridge) were activated by room card on arrival in room. The aircon needed resetting each time but got hang of it after a day or so. Security around site was good as the gats could be opened with room key except after 20.30 when you had to go via reception. Overall enjoyed place. Not bad value as this is budget hotel. Even the local cats were friendly enough :)

Pros: friendly cats
Cons: Karaoke with Roberto
Location: right between maspalomas / playa del ingles
Lovely peaceful place - a bit away from the beach but free bus service / cheap taxi, and plenty parking. Excellent value for money and well looked after. plenty activities for the kiddies - maybe not ideal if you are looking for nightlife though.
