The Hotel Lopesan Villa del Conde was chosen by Natalia Ortiz and her family to enjoy the Christmas holidays and celebrate New Year’s Eve. She tells us about her experience:
“We lodged there for four days and this was definitely our choice for the great number of activities and spaces where the children can enjoy as well. In addition, the perfect location, very near to the beach and beach walk, with its great areas, were all features that convinced us to take this decision”.
Facilities and architecture
The Hotel Lopesan Villa del Conde, in Gran Canaria, was opened in 2004 and is characterized by a stunning architecture. This 5 stars resort appears as a little village where different areas take the clients into the atmosphere and traditions of there.
Villa del Conde has five swimming pools in total, two wormed up and one for kids, one discotheque, a kids’ club, areas for ceremonies with a view by the sea, three coffee shops and three restaurants. The Hotel has 561 rooms in total; 25 suits, 1 senior and 1 Royal. In addition, if you would like to, it has a panoramic spa with a magnificent view by the ocean.
Finally, one of the most amazing and astonishing area of this hotel is the place called La Plaza, that is in front of one of the restaurants and built with the aim of recreating the atmosphere of Plaza de Ayuntamiento. Even if is outdoor, it is a suitable place where the kids can play together in serenity.
Our stay at the Hotel Lopesan Villa del Conde
“We stayed at the Hotel Lopesan Villa del Conde for four nights, including the New Year’s Eve and the New Year. The architecture as well the reception of the hotel are very elegant and impressive. The room where we have lodged was a familiar one, with an amazing view by the sea and it has a king/matrimonial bed and an additional one. The kit for the bathroom was absolute, with a toner and other components, and with liquid soaps and shampoos as well. Only one detail was missed, something for the kids that used to go in hotel of that level.
The waiters’ behavior through the clients is really good, they are pleasant and take care of you, trying to give you all the help you need. For what concern the food, the room where we had the breakfast was very large and spacious. The food quality was high even if we would have preferred to find more variety.
The lunch time was scheduled between the 14.00 and 16.00 in all the restaurants, and in our opinion, this was a bit complicated for the foreigner clients, which generally do not have a specific time to have the lunch. However, the coffee shop is open all the time during the day, so you can have sandwiches and ice creams whenever you want, if you don’t want to eat in a restaurant.
The dinners in the buffets were at two times: the first turn was at 18.00 and the second one was at 20.00, although you could also eat at the restaurant from 19.00. For the New Year’s Eve, the dinner was à la carte and very complete, while for the New Year we have decided to enjoy the buffet and the dinner was really good, surprising us for its variety. The wines’ menu was nice, although maybe, they should change the glasses when you ask for a wine of quite good quality.
Lopesan Villa del Conde is a hotel really focused and thought for adults, even if they offer also activities for kids. During the New Year’s Eve, the dinner and the fireworks were both so appealing. For what concern the other days, there were a lot of different activities to do in the hotel, such as yoga classes and watersports. In addition, it has a club for kids in order to let them enjoy and play with other children.
The New Year’s Eve party with which the hotel says goodbye to 2018, has started soon. The first thing that they did was to give all of us a balloon, a really kind choice in particular for the kids present there, and at the 4pm, we have left them flying away in the sky. In addition, the dinner for that night and the fireworks as well, with the music, were really nice and appealing.
You need to know that you could enjoy not only all the different activities in the hotel, that we have mentioned, but you have as well a really nice beach walk, with a great number of shops and other options, not only restaurants. We have decided to have our dinner in one restaurant by the sea, with a nice playground for kids and dishes with abundant food.
The hotel is exactly in front of the beach and sea, a detail that increase your experience when staying there. You can walk down along the beach walk, that is completely restructured and quite long, arriving till the stunning lighthouse, which is only 800 meters far away from the hotel Villa del Conde. An unmissable view if you would like to explore the areas outside but near to the hotel.
According to our experience, we can say that this is a hotel with a great quantity of activities that can satisfy you either in the spring or winter-like seasons. It is characterized by both indoors and outdoors areas, such as the wormed-up swimming pools, that allow you to relax and enjoy them even if they are outside.
The Hotel Villa del Conde is very recommendable and precious for spending your holidays. Here you can find more information about the hotel and all the options it has for you in order to organize the event you would like to.
