Biggest Norwegian-owned resort
complex on the island.

We arrived safely on the Spanish island right before midnight. Inside the terminal we were met by our personal Chauffeur who escorted us to a black Mercedes where we were taken to our hotel.

Anfi Del Mar resort is located in Arguineguín - a Canarian fishing village situated along the south coast of Gran Canaria, Spain. Although the place is known for being a tourist spot it is also the home of the locals and the Norwegians. The population increases during winter time due to the Norwegian school, church and health center.

The Anfi complex houses 869 apartments suitable for friends and couples, but especially for families. The complex features its very own shopping mall, gym, hairdresser and a Wellness Centre. It has also a diving school, a Medical clinic, restaurants and bars.

The complex has a marina, a man-made heart formed island where the guests can enjoy a delightful meal, or enjoy a cocktail. And also an artificial beach with 20 tons of white Caribbean sand.

The Anfi complex is divided into four clubs; Club Monte Anfi, Anfi Beach Club, Club Purto Anfi and lastly, Club Gran Anfi where I stayed.

The Apartment with an
overlooking view of the sea

One of the first great impressions I got from the apartment was the kitchen. I wasn't expecting a fridge and a kitchen table full of gluten and lactose free food. For those who didn't know, I'm primary lactose intolerant. I try to eat a little bit of yoghurt and ice cream every now and then just to prevent my allergies from becoming worse by avoiding dairy completely.

Our air conditioned apartment was situated in the fourth floor of the complex.

It features a king sized bed, a flatscreen TV and a working desk. There was also a bathtub in our room. The apartment has a living room area and a separated bathroom with a shower. It's also equipped with a hairdryer and free toiletries.

It has also a balcony with sun beds and sitting area overlooking the view of the sea. The kitchen was fully equipped and the complimentary selection of teas and coffee items were restocked daily.

In collaboration with the Anfi group I was given the opportunity to test out Total Relax, one of their 7 "tailormade" holiday packages.
