The terrace is large and is great to sit on in the evening all round perfect place to unwind.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have just had two wonderful weeks at Chequers and will most certainly returning again hopefully later this year. The apartment is clean, comfortable and has a great large balcony which DOES have the sun all day long. It was also nice to have a proper fridge freezer, Sky TV. and washing machine all of which work lovely. Jamie is a very nice person to deal with also, he is polite, friendly, professional and answers any questions quickly. Thank you Jamie for making our stay so pleasant.

Great place to just chill out & relax! Peaceful but near enough to restaurants & nightlife too.

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a couple or 2 friends. Everything you could need is supplied. Lovely, spacious terrace for sunbathing & dining on. Great pool area too. Never too busy so it's a peaceful getaway. Plenty of sunshine. Near enough to restaurants, bars & shops when you want them without being disturbed by them when you don't.

Used public transport on this visit. Frequent & great value to get anywhere around the island.

Amazing Spa in Maspalomas.

Next time I want to check out the zoo & revisit Aqualand.

I'd fly straight back out there tomorrow if I could. ☀️🌴🏖🍨

Better than we expected.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as we expected from reading the previous reviews. it was perfect for the two of us. We spent every day on the terrace chilling out in the lovely weather. There is a small shop behind that provided everything we needed. The location was peaceful with some amazing views it you climb the surrounding hills. In the evenings we would walk down the hill into the town to have a meal. The walk back up was sometimes challenging but most people used the very cheap taxi service.

We were not too impressed with the main restaurant/shopping area in Peurto Rico. The prices were quite expensive, and we were bombarded with shop/restaurant owners trying to get our money. The place was also extremely busy with tourists. The Wig Wam Bar by the marina was our favorite for good quality drinks, service and atmosphere. The all you can eat Chinese buffets were also good value for money. Peurto Mogan was worth a trip by boat or bus. Although we fond the town a little over over the top, is was great to get back to the apartment at night and sit out under the stars with a nightcap or two.

Perfect location and amazing sun terrace

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived it felt like home. Located in a perfect spot, quiet and tranquil yet close enough to all the main attractions. The sun terrace here is simply to die for, from the moment the sun rises in the morning it stays on the balcony right up till sunset. With comfortable seating and loungers you can easily loose a day or two simply sitting in the sun eating and reading a good book. The apartment is fitted out to a high standard, good facilities including a washing machine meaning you can travel light. We spent many evening lounging on the terrace watching a film in the evening sun. A short walk down the hill and your right in the heart of the town. The beaches are close and plenty to choose from. Would defiantly recommend this apartment for a short break or even A long let during the UK winter months. Top marks all round

Good location, just what we were looking for!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a short step away from the mountain walks, one of the paths leads downwards to Amfi del Mar beach, and then on to Playa de Patalavaca beach, and then onto Arguineguin sea front, which is good for walkers. Chequers is in a very quiet location, there is a small shop which has everything, just behind the building. A bigger supermarket just down the bank. The apartment has everything you need, it is well equipped, and has UK TV by WIFI and a DVDs player. The large terrace & swimming pool face the sun & catch it most of the day.The restaurants in the Olas shopping centre are excellent and have plenty of choice, the walk back up the hill keeps you fit and isn't too bad. The restaurants are a little cheaper a little further down the hill on the sea front. All in all, we had a lovely stay, and some lovely walks, and a trip on the ferry to Puerto Mogan is definitely worth a visit. Taxis are cheap only 3 euros, in case you can't be bothered to walk back up the hill. Would certainly come back again!

A property that fulfilled my needs

  • 4 of 5

I was looking for a space to enjoy Gran Canaria. Chequers was the property that provided that opportunity for me. Puerto Rico is a quiet inlet on a coast that hosts a lot of people for holidays. I was looking to get some heat on my body and to be able to walk rather than stay on the beach. Chequers is about 15 minutes walk to the marina/beach. It is also very close to a beautiful hill walk that I really enjoyed. I was on my own- I'm not too sure of the space for three people-yet everyone's need is different. I booked with just a few days notice. It was my first time using HomeAway. I didn't give the home owner much time to arrange for me to get keys yet he managed it and kept assuring me that it would work out.

The restaurants, taxies, busses to and from nearby resorts and tour coaches were plentiful as were the boats. I really enjoyed the week and yes I would go back to Gran Canaria and stay at Chequers. Seán from Ireland

Las Palmas
Car: not necessary

Puerto Rico is renowned for being the sunniest spot in Gran Canaria, so if you like it hot - this is the place to be!

During high season, the resort is bustling with holidaymakers who come to enjoy a day out on its small and beautiful beach. In addition, Puerto Rico offers a wide selection of watersports activities, ranging from jet skiing, sailing, diving, big-game fishing and windsurfing, to leisure excursions such as pleasure boat trips along the coast, dolphin-watching cruises or trips in glass-bottomed boats to discover the rich underwater life of the area.

This resort really does have a family friendly feel to it and you will find lots of children playing on the golden sand. A gentle breeze is always blowing and the sea is calm, offering ideal conditions for a dip in the warm waters of the Atlantic.

A popular public swimming pool is situated a short distance from the beach amidst the exotic plants and flowers of a lush tropical garden. Other attractions include golf courses, a water park featuring entertainment for people of all ages and a handy shopping centre nearby.

The resort provides abundant amenities, with plenty of beach front bars and cafés, easy parking, readily available sunbeds, sunshades and numerous shower facilities. Local buses run from all major destinations and are cheap and reliable.
