Babalu is on the south-west coast of the island of Gran Canaria, Spain. It overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and is in a popular area, a short drive from Puerto Rico and is within walking distance of a golf course as well as the nearest shopping centre for souvenirs, food and clothes. The hotel is a short walk from Playa de Amadores, a sandy stretch of coastline where you can swim or snorkel. The hotel has two outdoor pools and a terrace dotted with tropical palm trees, and there are plenty of places for you to relax in the sunshine or the shade. There's a 24-hour reception and high-speed Wi-Fi is also available throughout the hotel. Babalu has a mini market where you can pick up daily essentials. If you like to stay active, you can play football on the multi-sports court, and there's also a pool table. Puerto Rico is the area immediately around the hotel. Formerly a small fishing village, it's now a favourite holiday destination because of its sandy beach and scenic location. There are lots of shops, bars and restaurants for you to explore. There are also family-friendly theme parks and water parks within driving distance of the hotel.

Babalu Apartamentos is 1.7km from the beach and Playa de Amadores. It's also 200m from Europa Centre, a shopping centre where you can eat, drink and shop. For more choice of shops, bars and restaurants, you can walk into Puerto Rico centre which is 3km away. If you want to play golf, you can visit the Amfi Golf Course which is 1.4km away. A little further away at 5km is Mogan Port, where there's another sandy beach and a harbour, as well as waterways that have given it the nickname 'the Venice of the Canaries'.

Babalu Apartamentos has a pool bar where you can get drinks from morning until late. There are also plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. In the room you can make your own meals on the electric hotplate, and there's also a toaster and a microwave.

Gone down hill massively

Jun 2022 | Daydream818290

My family stayed at the Babalu beginning first week in June, we had stayed here before. I must say that now the pool bar and shop are closed it's difficult to get any food or drink without keep going to the Europa centre. The pool doesn't open till gone 10 in the morning, some days it was nearer 11. No inflatables allowed in the pool and no diving in, really gone down hill and won't be staying again, such a shame as it use to be really nice. On the plus side, there is a wonderful view and the rooms are clean and spacious, just the pool area let's it down massively.

We don't know what has happened, the online photos' on Bookings and on here look fine. BUT the place is a dirty death trap. Fire alarms hanging off walls in corridors, unsafe apartment electrics. Dirty bedding & towels. Broken facilities like showers, doors hanging off, grimy, dirty, no hot water. The apartments themselves (and we tried 2 "superior" as they call them) we absolutely shocking. See my photos. The main part of the pool was closed off, when we asked we were advised "big problems" pool bar shut. All in all miserable

Lovely hotel

Great location. Great hotel, sun drenched balcony. Nice and clean. What else do you want on your holidays?! Sod all the stupid reviews about people making a slight peep on the odd night or the pool bar was shut?! Snooor! It's decent and nice, if you want a lovely place to stay for a break away.
