“Fine Hotel, Shame about next door”
Reviewed 8 June 2011

This was our first time in Gran Canaria and we choose the hotel based on previous reviews. Travel from the Airport to the hotel couldn't have been easier with the No 66 bus stopping across from the hotel and the return stop (one way street) being 150m down the road.

The check in desk was unmaned on our arrival and it took about 15 minutes for an employee to turn up and give us our keys. The room itself was clean and a fine size. The bedroom consisted of 2 single beds shoved together, firm matresses and quite confortable. The kitchen had a good sized fridge/freezer, 2 cooking rings and enough delph for 3 poeple. 24 stations on the TV of which about 18 had a watchable picture. Sky News and CNBC were the only english options. Sofa was comfortable but squeeky .

The patio latch wasn't working on arrival but was fixed within 30 minutes of reporting it. The hotel seems to enforce a no noise policy after 22:00, Two small pools and a childrens area completed the facilities.

The only noise problems we had during the stay was from the renovations on the building across the street. We are early risers so it didn't bother us but those who like to sleep late will be unhappy while the works continue.

Check out was 12:00, an extension was available for €15 (didnt use it) and a luggage room was made available to us until our bus came.

Overall very happy with the place and would happily stay there again.

we stayed in April 2010 5 days in Playa del Ingles. The appartment cost us only 50€ per night and the size of the room was pretty good, with flat tv a separate sleeping room and a small kitchen (without as dishwasher).

The only disadvantage with some furniture was the bed(s) itself. We had 2 single beds, which where set between eachother, but if one of us was lying in th middle, the beds turned away from each other...there was no chance to keep them together and to make love on a wider area :-)

The other only negative point was that the towels were pretty old.

However, for 50Euro per night, I would surely stay there again and can recomment the appartment/hotel.

Playa del Ingles itself is pretty ugly. All buildings from the 60s/70s and most of them seem not renovated at all. The town is pretty loud and a lot of drunk people shout in the streets when going home from the pubs/disco.

Room Tip: we booked our room diretly through telephone

This hotel was excellent for the price. Simple, but exceptionally clean, well equipped, and perfect location. It's 5 minutes from the beach and right beside all of the shopping areas. The bus from the airport drops off a few minutes walk away.

I chose this hotel after reading favourable reviews on tripadvisor.co.uk and I was not disappointed. Although cheap to stay the room was in good condition, very clean with everything that was required. The cleaners came all but one day and changed beds & towels, etc. The reception staff were very helpful. The location is excellent - really near to restaurants, bars and the beach but without being noisy. Other guests were mainly German & Scandinavian and were very respectable. The only noise came from the crazy golf just opposite but this shut before midnight. Compared to some larger hotels & apartments in Playa del Ingles this one is not an eyesore and is actually quite attractive (check it out on Google Streetview). Finally the bus stop is right opposite so I would certainly give it my recommendation & would not hesitate to stay there again. A very satisfied guest.

clean, rooms were basic as you would expect from the price,
pool was great and again very clean,
beds were hard, linen cleaned regularly
good value
some road noise, and i would think in high season
alot of noise form other appartment users.
would go again but only off season,
