Holiday Review | Tisalaya Park in Maspalomas

I'm going to shock you all by saying that I got a weeks holiday in Gran Canaria, in a 3* hotel with flights and transfers for £147. My friend Emily and I worked out that this was around £7.10 per night for the hotel itself which I am personally still in shock about. I felt like I had to review this hotel because for the price it was amazing. It was basic, but it had everything we needed for a relaxing week away after a hectic term at Uni! 

 We booked the Tisalaya Park hotel with teletext holidays. We were lucky enough to get a ground floor apartment very close to the pool, and we got sunbeds every day which is a massive plus for me as I am a massive lover of the sunshine! 




It was quite sunny most of the holiday, although we did have a few cloudy mornings but this meant that we could head to the beach or relax with our kindles which was perfect. Another really fantastic thing about the hotel was that they changed our towels regularly, and on every day except Sunday, the cleaner came round to clean our villa which I think was amazing considering the price we paid for our stay. We were so impressed because we really didn't know what to expect.

Our apartment had a living area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom and was quite spacious for just the two of us! It was really relaxed there and we just spent the week reading and relaxing. There was a spar literally a 5 -10 minute walk away which was perfect as we aimed to eat in as much as possible and the hotel also offered a free bus service to the beach which we caught from the end of the road! 





 There was also a restaurant in the hotel, and we ate there for lunch one day. We only had chips but they were really nice and not too expensive for the price we paid! Another thing we paid for was wifi so we could keep in touch with our families. It was 27 euros for two devices for a week. It was fairly cheap for the access, however in our villa it was a little temperamental. There was also the option to rent the telly for the week, although we declined doing this as we knew we would be too busy tanning and relaxing! 

We both had such a lovely week and I really would recommend this hotel if you are looking for an affordable and relaxing week away. Although the pool got a little loud at times, which is bound to happen when you stay in a hotel, it was still really nice to just sit in the sunshine and soak up some sun after a busy term. 




 Have you ever been to Gran Canaria? Have you ever booked a holiday with teletext?

  1. I went to Gran Canaria when I was younger with the family and really enjoyed it there! Not sure where abouts we stayed though. Sounds like you got this holiday for such a good price! I've never tried anything through teletext so will have to look into it, rather than paying over the odds for a holiday through a company :) Hope you had a lovely time xxx
