We stayed here as a couple at the beginning of May for a week. I had read previous reviews about the hotel be dated,OK the carpets were a bit thread bare, but this did not detract from our holiday. We were given a sea view room after emailing in a request, we were supposed to be in the garden annexe...

nice small swimming pools spread around several levels and surrounded with palmtrees, ideal location at the foot of the dunes and alongside one of the long beaches of the island. average buffet, and the economic rooms from 530 to 539 have terrible backside views. Room size, equipment, cleanliness, service all ok. Good for one week of hassle free hoildays.

The positives- This hotel is in the nicest part of the resort with stunning views. Rooms were of a decent size and many also had lovely views. The food was average for breakfast and evening meal The negatives- Evening entertainment was virtually non existent, the entertainment manager often started the evening introducing a very poor band to about 4 people....

The location is close to the beach. However Playa del Ingles is a very tacky tourist resort and this is reflected in the area and on the beach. The hotel is kept clean and the public areas are good with three different pool areas. The bedrooms in the annex are larger but in need of refurbishment - the carpets are...

We spend a nice week at Ifa Dunamar in Playa del Ingles. Great location in the center. Breakfast buffet was wonderful. We had a room with sea view; view to the sea is nice, room itself quit small and maybe oldfashioned but everything worked very well. We enjoyed our stay :)

Definitely not four star. Rooms and decor are in need of attention. Wi fi poor and intermittent coverage.

The location of the hotel was ideal for us being in the centre of the promenade so good walks can be had either way. Our favourite was across the sand dunes to Maspalomas and then back along the beach. Be warned if you are of a sensitive disposition as naturists gather about halfway along the beach. There was a game...
