Tucked into a hillside overlooking Gran Canaria’s Puerto Rico Valley, with beautiful views from your balcony, the three-star Colina Mar Aparthotel offers the chance to be as flexible as you like with your holiday style.
Apartments, which can sleep a family with two children under 12, have living areas with pay-per-view TV and kitchenettes with fridge, kettle, hob, toaster, coffee-maker and microwave, perfect for self-catering.
However, there are also buffet and a la carte restaurants, favouring Mediterranean cuisine like fresh seafood, pasta and paella, with an all-inclusive option available.
And you don’t have to make your own entertainment, as theme evenings like Italian nights, show-cooking and barbecues, plus cabaret-style shows and tribute acts, are regular features.
Add two swimming pools with sunbeds and parasols, a children’s pool, playground and kids’ club, a video arcade, shops, restaurants and bars close by and a sandy beach half-an-hour’s walk away, and you’re set for a great holiday.
