Family Life Tres Vidas Apartments
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Bahia Feliz
Reviewed 11 September 2012

September 1st our family visited Gran Canaria for the first time. We traveled with Fritidsresor (TUI) and our destination was the design apartments at Tres Vidas (Blue Village) in Bahia Feliz. Our initial apartment was by the beach (neighbor with the surf club) with a pretty nice sea view - BUT, it felt kind of dark and narrow, with a tiny terrace. So, we emptied our travel funds and bought ourselves an upgrade ;-). We hoped to get one with a large balcony - but they were all occupied...

The "new" apartment was at the top of the hill (which includes a pretty steep slope to climb each day) - it too was a design room, but the big advantage was the direct-pool-access. Felt really luxury to have a private pool (well, yes - you have to share it with three other apartments. But since this was at the end of the season, only one of them was occupied). Felt like our own. The water was crystal clear. Speaking of pools, not all of the pools felt that clean. The big pool area by the Orquidea hotel was quite nice and clean, but the pool at Blue Village Playa Feliz (nearby) was turbid with quite much dirt in it. I guess that is what you get in a crowded pool.

Cleaning of the room was good, fresh design, dishes washed, new towels almost every day.
Another nice gesture is that all rooms receive a free pass to the Orquidea SPA for 2 people.

The hotel surroundings was very clean and tidy. Green grass, lush vegetation and pretty flowers, something that's quite sparse on the rest of the island. Great entertainment most of the time, both day and night. Here we must praise Thomson (British part of TUI) - they really kept the activities and party going...which is great for the guests. Fritidsresor on the other hand had some great evenings with musical shows, but during daytime they were rather invisible?!?!?

We chose the all-inclusive option which was valid on most restaurants and bars - but not all, which is a bit odd when you think you have just bought all-inclusive. The food was good, but after a few days it felt a bit recurrent. However I think the wine and drinks included was of poor quality, tasteless - specially the different drinks was presented without any passion.

What about beaches ? Yes, the hotel is located right by the ocean, but the beach was boring and uninteresting. Small parts of nice soft sand..but mostly rocky shores. Wind and large waves made the visibility below surface almost zero when snorkeling.

Some cons:
- Free WiFi only in the reception area. WiFi at apartments costs extra.
- Safety box in the room costs extra
- Some of the Fritidsresor staff need to take a training course in service attitude
- The air conditioning had problems to cover all bedrooms - really sweaty some nights
- Very hard and uncomfortable beds =)
- No nearby shopping (except supermarket and some tourist traps)

Room Tip: I would choose a room with a large terrace or large balcony. Or if you like to spoil yourself - I re...

This is a nice place for young families. Most speak good English. The nearest restaurant can provide some institutional character, but there are several restaurants to choose. All of good quality. The pool is OK and clean. It's easy to take the bus into Playa del Ingles, even with strollers.

Room Tip: We were unfortunately not met our desire to neighboring apartment with those we traveled with. It wa...

The hotel and the surrounding apartments in Blue Village Bahia Feliz hold a normal good standard. The food served at the hotel is very good, and the prices are quite affordable.

We first stayed in 2 apartments (our group was quite large/2 adults+6 kids), but on the 4'th day we had a break-in and had to move to the hotel as the apartments were all rented out. According to a local shop owner we met, break-ins are quite normal in the area.

The rooms at the hotel were clean and tidy. What was not so nice was the fact that there were a lot of very noisy guests there, and since we had a 9 weeks old baby with us, this made our stay not so pleasant. We tried to address this issue with the hotelmanagement (and with the local representatives of the travel company/TUI) but they did not try a little bit to help.

The area surrounding Bahia Feliz is rather boring. There is NOTHING there accept a local shopping centre/mall. And Playa del Ingles is too far away for going every day, esp. with small kids.

So, if you travel to Gran Canaria we recommend other places than Bahia Feliz. (We have been to both Playa del Ingles and Puerto Rice before).

Room Tip: Make sure NOT to get an apartment not covered by the sucurity cams. The burglars apparently know whi...

Really nice hotel in bahia feliz! We returned 4 days ago, and it was amazing! We travelled with 4 kids (9,8,4,2) and my husband. A good family hotel, and a great option to take your kids with you! The food was nice, we ordered all inc. and that was a kind of good. We had a design room with terrace. The rooms weir clean, and nice. Service was good. A little minus is the entertainment because it was all in swedish. The teddy club was good for my kids. The pool was crawed but still really nice.
When the kids weir in the teddy club, my husband and I took to the orquidea spa. It was amazing! We got a great massage, and the jaquzzi was perfect. If you want to get a little away from the town I recommend you to take a bus to playa ingles (I think the name was) weir you ca shop in the shopping mall.

We also took to aqualand and palmitos park. It was just so fun, and really good for the kids. A great and fun dolphin show, and "zoo".

Well a really good and fun place! I'm sure that I would come back! Really really good for families not for couples.

We had a great time at Tres Vidas. The children enjoyed it very much, especially Bamse-klubben.

Room Tip: We had a design apartement with terrace. We had a large lawn in front of our apartement.
