Our holiday started off by getting a basement room, when we were promised a sea view room. For extra 150€ they of course upgraded us when we already paid 1400£. Our room was not cleaned for straight up three days, even after complaining to reception, the receptionist told us they don’t have room service (a German guest later told me that they indes offer it, I guess they were just too lazy to bring it up to us), we had a kettle in our hotel room, but never got any tea/coffee. For the safe you have to pay extra. Our AC was not working on 28 degree weather 5 out of 8 days we were there. The beds were uncomfortable, along with the ran down duvet, and flat cheap pillows. The bathroom had a cheap shower head installed that sprinkled everywhere it wasn’t supposed to. The food for breakfast is also not worth it at all to get, and we didn’t even bother with lunch/dinner from the bad experiences with breakfast. For the spa, even the jacuzzi they they so highly advertise you have to pay for. Laundry is 8€ per shirt, instead you ask I’m for the key and do it yourself, just don’t iron anything, because the one that’s chained up in the basement laundry room burns your clothes, and you can’t fill it with water. For a 4* hotel, they must’ve gotten the last one an eBay auction, or just blatantly lie about being 4*. I stayed in hostels that are nicer and more up to date than Seaside Sandy Beach Hotel. Do not bother with this hotel, as it’s DEFINITELY NOT worth the price you pay.

Returned yesterday from an 11 day stay at this wonderful hotel . My wife, who is partially disabled, was treated with the utmost consideration. A table was reserved for us close to the buffet at dinner without being requested. Different theme nights ensured that the menus were varied with something for everyone. Our Superior room was comfortable and spacious. The beds are the most comfortable I have experienced in any holiday hotel. The swimming pool was warm, clean and .large enough to accommodate all who wished to use it. However access was difficult for anyone with a mobility problem. A good programme of activities was available everyday. Everywhere the hotel was clean and well maintained. We have decided to return to this marvellous hotel again.

Spent a week with a friend based on all-inclusive. It was my first all inclusive experience and I am very content!The food was really good and a lot of variety in this 7 days. Good meat, fish and vega options and for every taste there is enough. Sometimes the buffet food was a little bit cold.Rooms were very comfortable, beds were fantastic and the shower also very good and powerful. Had a little problem with electricity on the right side of the bed, but that was all.But especially the friendly and helpful staff and service made our stay!

The staff are brilliant. Always friendly and approachable. Rooms are kept to a very high standard and are spacious. It's only a few minutes walk from the beach with parking on-site. The pool's great and there are fun activities available throughout the day. Half-board is good value and there's an all-inclusive option if you're going to spend most of your time at the hotel. Kids are welcome but it seems more of an adult hotel.

Hotel was amazing. Perfect for us. Food, location, Entertainment , Atmosphere in and around the grounds really peaceful. Gardens beautiful. Rooms excellent all with sea view. Definitely will book again.

We spent 16 days here, it was a enjoyable experience but definitely could have been better, we will not be returning. The location is great only a 10 minute walk to the beach. The accommodation was comfortable and clean( only found 2 cockroaches in our room). The food was good with a reasonably good choice however it tended to repeat to become monotonous. Only one swimming pool which is fairly small if you take into consideration the size of the hotel. I was disappointed in the service the waiters and waitresses tended to ignore the Brits and pander to the Germans, in fact the waiters second language was German and all the signs in the hotel where in Spanish 1st, German 2nd and English last, also if you want a lounger by the pool the Germans start queuing about 08-10 waiting until about 08-40 when they have cleaned the area as put the mattresses out then allow you to place your towel on the bed to claim your spot there are additional beds on the top veranda but you will have to walk down the steps to the pool, the pool is heated so is never cold but on hot days it was too warm and was like getting in a warm bath. The entertainment was mediocre and repeat weakly but I don’t find this unusual as the acts just did the rounds in the same hotels in the area. We only went half board which was a good choice for us personally as we don’t drink much and after a substantial breakfast we skipped lunch as it wasn’t included a lot of people we spoke to said the drinks were watered down anyway. We did speak to some people who were returning for a second or third visit. but valve for money it was average but that is only my honest opinion you obviously may have a different opinion. I hope you may have found my feedback helpful.Q

Amazing hotel great service and food. One small issue. The doors to the rooms are incredibly heavy and hard to open. Please get this fixed at some point. Definitely coming back soon

I was at seaside sandy Beach for one week. And it was amazing. The service was really good. I loved that they had different kind of themes of for the dining. And at the breakfast time they made sure there was a toast with turkey for me because I don’t eat pork, that was really nice!The only thing about breakfast is there wasn’t so much lactose free stuff, but there was so much else you could choose.The room was great, the only thing I want to point out is that it could use an upgrade with the furnitures.

Amazing hotel. Best we have ever stayed in. Comfy beds and rooms are always kept clean. Pool and pool area is wonderful, don't have to get up too early to save a sunbed. Food is just amazing plenty of choice for all ages, even if you were a fussy eater you would not go hungry here. The staff are very helpful and pleasant and at meal times the staff treat us like we were special ,well done to them all as they never seem to stop. Great games room to keep everyone amused. We are going back next year. Very highly recommended.

Fabulous hotel, rooms well equipped, air conditioned and always clean. Food is excellent and the massive choice available is great. Staff are wonderful. Nothingbis too much trouble. Close to the beach with east access from the hotel. Shops nearby.

We cannot fault this place one bit. It was my first time abroad and we flew with Jet2 who arranged the transfer to the hotel where we arrived around 1am and the man at the reception counter was so friendly and welcoming. There was an issue with the computer so we couldn't get checked in straight away but he kept us chatting until the system loaded and we were soon handed our key card and made our way to our room.We were welcomed with a plate of fresh fruit and bottled water when we first entered the room, which considering we hadn't ate since the airport was a very welcomed gift.We stayed for 10 nights and had breakfast every morning (we opted for half-board) which was a buffet style with such a vast selection of foods from local meats and cheese to a traditional full English breakfast. The service from each of the staff in the restaurant, both waiting staff and chefs, was undeniably perfect. Every morning we were greeted with a welcoming Hola!The evening meals were also something we found ourselves looking forward to where each night was a different themed buffet (Spanish, Mexican, German, French, etc). Again the food served was incredible, the staff continuously aware or everyone and making each person feel welcomed.We found ourselves only using the pool a couple of times due to travelling around the area however each time we were more than happy. The size of thr pool allows people not to feel cramped together and that you have your own space. It's also a heated salt water pool which is definitely something we enjoyed.We found ourselves enjoying the nightlife of Yumbo almost every night, so we were returning back to Sandy Beach within the early hours of the morning (ranging from midnight to 5am) and each time we had such ease with accessing the hotel either through the main reception or via the side entrance (requires a room key to open the door).Finally, we cannot praise the location of this hotel enough. It was a 5 minute walk to the beach, if that, where you were right by the main strip on Playa Del Ingles with an abundance of shops and restaurants. Again, only a short 5 minute walk up to Yumbo meant that we had access to everything only a small walk away.To each of the staff we had the pleasure to meet, thank you so much for such an incredible holiday. Each of you made our experience one to remember and we honestly cannot wait to return.

Compared to what I had see in Maspalomas this hotel is excellent and in good repair. The staff were all very friendly. Even when something didn’t go as planned the General Manager did everything she could to make it better with success. The room was spacious and clean. I was located with view of the pool. Hotel is close to the beach as well. The food in the restaurant was also very good. Large buffet with lots to choose from. Highly recommend!

Really good two week holiday. Comfortable room, good food, friendly and attentive staff.

Great staff and a good buffè. Great location just a few minutes by foot to the beach surrounded by many restaurants and bars. The restaurants near the beach however have very low standard, the majority of them, with classic boring "tourist food". I highly recommend a restaurant called Costa Italy located 10min by foot from the hotel, we went there for dinner almost every night, great food!

This place was a little gem in a way, but think it could do with a bit of updating....I was totally shocked by the amount of German patrons , plus the amount of DOGS allowed to stay with patrons.....Also , think the location and operation of the Air rifle shooting need to be re- looked at...( Rifle handling is a disaster waiting to happen !!!- plus chances of a recoiled rebound of a pellet makes it totally dangerous in my experienced opinions....Some of the Restaurant Staff, were top rated- but some were a bit rushed and hasty , i presume tho, that the amount of dinners per sitting can be quite busy....The room was constantly serviced , with fresh towels daily , and the Room did seem large enough for a Couple to stay in comfort....Being called Sandy Beach is a bit misleading, as its a good 300 mtrs walk to the Beach .....What was a nice touch was, the laying on of a Cake and Fizzy Wine, as a gift 🎁 to my Partner on her 50th Birthday....plus the Hot tub Terrace is lovely , with the Loungers and free Fizzy wine and fruit supplied in the Terrace Fridge - which has plenty of room to keep self provided snacks/ soft drinks etc , well an advantage for the 12 hrs (10am to 10pm- usage time)- for a cost of 60Euros....1 little grumble was , the constant bump/ clunk of the traffic on the Street facing roadway, which was heard quite a lot...but all in all, it was an enjoyable stay - learn a bit of Spanish and avoid the sellers of tat on the beach/ strip, and you could have a great stay in the Gran Canaria resort...

A very nice hotel with nice rooms. Situated at a very good position close to the beach. The area is calm and pleasant. The hotel offers a good buffet and the staff is very friendly

We had a fabulous week long holiday at Seaside! The food was beautiful and the family room was great. All the staff were so lovely with our little boy, especially the waiter who each time he passed us, made barking noises. We will definitely be going back one day! Gracias for a wonderful stay.

One of the best hotels in Playa del Ingles. Great food with fresh products. Very nice atmosphere around the pool. Very friendly staff. The waiters always make funny jokes :-)We first got a room on the first floor which does not have view on the pool. But we were able to upgrade our room with pool view.Five minute walk to the beach of Maspalomas.Highly recommended and we will sure return!

Our first time to Gran Canaria. Seaside Sandy Beach was excellent. Food was superb - evening buffet was probably the best we've ever had in a hotel. Staff friendly efficient and helpful. Definitely recommend

Lovely 4 star hotel in a great location - 10 mins walk to the beach, 15 mins walk to Yumbo and 20 mins walk to Cita. From the moment we arrived everyone made us so welcome. The first impression is always so important and the reception staff were fabulous. Our room on the 9th floor had sea view, lots of sunshine throughout the day. The beds and pillows were very comfy and the room was spotlessly clean. Clean towels supplied every day and the room cleaning staff work really hard. Endless tea, coffee, milk and sugar in the room + a coffee machine. We didn't have much time to watch the TV but it received BBC1 BBC2 ITV Ch4 Sky sports, sky news and several other UK channels. The restaurant area was lovely, lots of outdoor tables, excellent breakfast and the half board option is worthwhile, the food on offer and restaurant staff are fabulous. A good selection of live evening entertainment. Great pool area and three naturist terraces, comfy sunloungers with padded cushions. We must not forget to mention the night porter who we had a nice chat with every night when we got back. Not a lot more to add except for; this is one of the best hotels we have stayed at in Gran Canaria. 100% from start to finish. Highly recommended.

We went all inclusive and it was okay, but won't go back.If not very child friendly. They do try, but the pool bar is surrounded by smoking tables and the staff are not very friendly to kids.There also isn't anywhere to get the burgers or pizza between meals that the website advertises.The food at breakfast, lunch and dinner is okay, but it doesn't really change and the staff are keen to get you in and out quickly.Finally the drinks are the cheapest drinks they can get and they're watered down.But it gets three stars because well, it wasn't bad, it was okay. Just not what we thought we were getting.

Seaside is only the name, not the location. Hotel is about 500m from the sea. Typical 4 star hotel. Rooms are comfortabele and clean. Breakfast is extremely good. Swimming pool towels are provided in the room and can be changed daily. Despite the requests, many beds are claimed early in the morning. Best time for breakfast is around 08:15. Small parking area in front of hotel. Note that the entry and reception are on the forth (4) floor. Fitness room on level 3 (muscle training), running and cardio on nine.

Excellent hotel. Food and drinks are exceptional. Very good choice of food everyday ranging from freshly cooked fish meat and a large variety of salads. Room are exceptionally clean and hotel it spotless. All staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much for them. Pool area is very clean and swimming pool is lovely. We will definately be revisiting again.

Absolutely NEVER COMING BACK! Me and my family were staying in the hotel for a week and we have never seen such lack of care in the F&B department. They served mold on manchego cheese and served it again the next day. Not to mention some of the staff were barking and meowing at my little cousins at one point. ( we are Asian) What adults even do that?! The food was absolutely mediocre. We were always served drinks when we were nearly done. The lighting in the hotel is just so dark in some places. Honestly the only good things we’re the receptionists who always were happy to help and did help and the program team who were doing activities with the kids. Genuinely disappointment and not worth ANY penny. I hope they change whoever is in charge of F&B. Absolutely a disgrace to the hospitality industry.

Seaside Sandy Beach is the first place we’ve stayed at in Gran Canaria in our first trip this year and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. Loved the pool and their garden. We got to relax a lot and enjoyed the sun and their delicious cocktails by the pool bar. The buffed restaurant has such a huge diversity of dishes and every night they’ve had a different cuisine and some live music to accompany that. It was such a lovely atmosphere, familiar and super cozy. Our room was at the last floor and the view was spectacular from over there. Also loved the Moroccan accents in design at the entrance and the lobby area. Sandy Beach is such a nice place of chic, luxury and cozyness. The perfect spot for a very relaxing vacation in Gran Canaria.

Lovely 4*. Great food. Super staff. Just 3 mins from the beach and the start of the Maspalomas dunes. Generous size rooms. Best hotel in the area.

Stayed for a week beginning of February.The hotel was in a good location,5 mins from long Sandy beach. The food was excellent and the Hotel was spotless. Staff very helpful and were given a glass of fizz on arrival.Only fault we could remark on was the smoking areas were very close to non smokers in the dining areas.It was our first visit to Gran canaria would certainly return to this hotel.We booked through jet 2holidays and were told that they have their rooms on the second floor only, the rooms were very spacious and had big balconies, only downside being they overlooked a busy road which was quite noisy.Of course we were told we could be upgraded to a pool or sea view at 28 pounds per night, .
Seaside Sandy Beach Hotel
Wir waren das erste Mal im Sandy Beach, weil unser Hotel geschlossen hatte. „Gott sei Dank“ können wir da nur sagen. Unsere Begeisterung In diesem Hotel hielt sich kaum in Grenzen.
Angefangen bei der Rezeption bis hin zum Reinigungspersonal – kompetent, freundlich, zuvorkommend und professionell – einfach ein hervorragender Service.
Und für die Küche würden wir glatt zwei Sterne mehr vergeben. Das Essen ist zum Niederknien😊.
Ein riesengroßes Dankeschön an Frau Matas und ihr gesamtes Team für diesen wunderschönen Urlaub. Wir waren bestimmt nicht zum letzten Mal da, denn kein anderes Hotel in unseren zahlreichen Urlauben hatte diesen Wohlfühlcharakter.
