We recently arrived back (2am this morning!) from lopesan baobab, we were full board with Thomson package. Great hotel, lovely spacious modern rooms with nice big shower/ bath and wet room. Weather was glorious all week, minimum 21degrees. Food was of a really good standard both at lunch and dinner, fresh fish and meats cooked for you and although drinks not inc,used there is a massive choice in the wine menu then a couple of cocktail type bars for a change if scenery. The hotel does seem dark in first evening but you get used to that as it's the darker African themed rooms/Lobby area. We were in block 1 near the lazy river pool which gets busy however if you go to breakfast at 8.45am ish you can put your towels down as long as you come back within half hour/45 mins no one will remove them. I'd recommend on day one going to the local supermarket (a 2 minute walk) literally outside the hotel down and across the road for big bottles of water at less than a euro plus everything else you could possibly need. A small water at the hotel pool is just under 3 euros and small soft drinks likewise so if like us you spent enough in the actual holiday you can save considerably for drinks during the day this way. Evening obviously you need to buy in the restaurants. Great gym facilities should you want to keep ticking over with fitness plus me and my husband had a back massage each in the beauty salon in site again which was great. Overall fab, relaxing holiday.

We are coming to the end of a 7 night stay at the Lopesan Baobob and overall it has been a pleasant stay. However, on first impressions we were disappointed. We arrived at the hotel at 4pm and was directed to our room. The room was unmade, and when it was brought to the staffs attention a very poor attempt at throwing together the beds was made. The quality of sheets are terrible as are the towels. The king size bed is actually two single beds pushed together and is extremely uncomfortable. The room is very dark and doesn't smell fresh at all, in particular the toilet and shower area. Although the room is cleaned daily, it is done very half heartedly. This is actually in stark contrast to the cleanliness of the rest of the hotel, which is absolutely exceptional. The pool areas, restaurants and bars are immaculate and the staff are friendly. We paid on a half board basis, which isn't something we would usually do but was reassured by the travel agents that the food would be of a very high quality. It most certainly wasn't. This was not 5* food, the children's selection was terrible and although there was a large choice for adults we didn't find it to be appetising by any stretch of the imagination and ate in other restaurants in Meloneras most evenings. The breakfasts were better but rather repetitive. The food available to purchase seemed of a lot better quality and of a very reasonable price, the drinks were also very reasonably priced. We would return to the hotel, but certainly not on a half board basis and with our expectations lowered, with the better of hindsight that in actual fact we would be coming to a 4* hotel. When we made a complaint to our holiday company (Thomsons), her reply was simply 'nobody else has complained', a response we found to be totally dissatisfactory. We would not book through a travel company again, and on any return trip would do so directly. The premium we paid for a 'hassle free' holiday certainly wasn't justified on this occasion. Meloneras itself is a great place, it lacks a good beach nearby but this didn't adversely effect our holiday. The children loved Aqualand which was fairly good value for money. We would advise at this time of year to pack some light sweaters and warmer clothes but overall the weather during the daytime has been very sunny. The Moonlight Cinema, although quite expensive was a nice experience especially for the children and we would recommend giving it a go.

Stayed at the hotell in the first week of february. An excellent hotell with good service and very friendly and helpful staff. The many pools and outside area are excellent with plenty of room. Breakfast and dinner have a good variety of food, especially the breakfast was outstanding. The hotel is situated in Meloneras only 10-15 min walk from the Maspalomas beach and desert. Unfortunately the weather was not the best this week, and in the evening we experienced some cold draught through the hotel in the corridors and even in the dining room.
