                Nice hotel, good organized and efficient reseption.

                Have to pay extra for small things like safe and fridge.

                Tradução de Português para Inglês I made a reservation on half board at the hotel but found that the drinks were not included in the dinner. I had to pay separately for the reservation and they are very expensive compared to prices in the rest of the island. The booking do not tell anything about the drinks, which I think is a mistake

                9.6

                Very organised hotel, very good value, nice tropical pool area, plentiful food.

                A little more knowledge of local transport, buses etc. would help. Usually quiet except for a few noisy guests.

              • Couple
                5.8

                The breakfast and the dinner very rich.The hotel room was very clean and the bathroom was very nice.

                The wi-fi internet connection was very, very slow, all-time interrupting,had to reconnet/re-login every one or two minutes, even if I paid for it and complaint to the reception about this.. Horror! I rather was connected from my mobile. The gym was too small, only few devices and have a very narrow opening time, only 3 hours daily. The hotel is a bit too far from the beach, so you have to walk 30 mins until dunes area then another 30 min through Maspalomas Dunas to reach beaches, or take taxi till dunes and back ( around 4 euro/trip).Sometimes the noise was strong, you could hear the neighbours.

                De keuken is perfect met veel variatie .Zaal en bar personeel werken hard maar niet efficient , wel heel vriendelijk en gedienstig.Mooie zwembaden en ligzetels .

                Small gym , big joke , ik heb dit hotel gekozen onder meer omdat er een fitness ruimte is , de openings uren zijn erg beperkt , ook al is de fitness in gebruik door een ander persoon moet je nog een sluiten gaan halen , 10 euro deposit betalen en je bent verandwoordelijk voor het afsluiten , als je stopt met fitness en je wil doorgaan moet je eerst vragen aan andere aanwezigen of ze een sleutel hebben zoniet moet je die mensen vragen de fitness te verlaten omdat je moet afsluiten om je deposit terug te krijgen . Enkel de manager kan van de gym gebruik maken wanneer hij wil , gasten van het hotel moeten de "openingsuren" respecteren .

                I travel alone and find it an easy stay. The food is very good although more staff are needed at dinner time as it is very busy. The rooms facing the beach are good and mainly quiet. I really like the place - RECEPTION TEAM ARE GREAT AND VERY VERY HELPFUL.

                Only one bad thing - the music form the pool is far too loud when the entertainment staff are there,, also the noise from the disco rings through the hotel late at night.

              • Couple
                5.4

                Price was OK

                Did not like the hotel at all. I have spent there one week, but did not really feel well there. Staff is trying to be friendly but very stressed. Rooms are in general clean, but definitely need refurbishment.

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                Very clean. Good breakfasts. Spacious apartment. Wonderful tropical garden, nice pool with sunbeds and umbrellas.

                Very far from the beach (free bus is provided every hour). High extra charges: internet 7 EUR/day (very poor signal with constant interruptions), parking 10 EUR/night Nothing but a glass in the kitchenette cupboard. The female receptionist Mrs Sanchez was always surly and unhelpful. Our room was next to the elevator which produced constant loud noise. The dinners were rather bland and repetitive.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Good location. Pretty good standard. Good food. Relaxing.

                We stayed 9 nights. Pretty satisfied with the stay. People order drinks at dinner and pay after dinner. Ask always for the receipt when you pay. Otherwise you will pay twice as I did because because the waiter had not registered it. I was presented with the bill for this on checking out. Bad service. Destroyed a lot of the good impression.

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                Location, friendly staff, size of room

                mattresses / beds were not so good, WIFI did not work in room

              • Family with children
                5.8

                Good Sized rooms, with good storage and very clean. Stayed in a suite which had a good sized terrace which was child friendly. We hired a car which meant that the location , which was a little removed from the central area of Playa del Ingles. Very good entertainment program during the day and night, and excellent animation team. The lifeguards were very attenive at the pool in ensuring of safety of the swimmers, which was reassuring for parents.

                Service was very slow, Staff were incredibly rude and dismissive of guests, everything seemed far too much trouble no matter how politely the guests requested information or assistance, the staff also didnt realise that a number of the English speakers also spoke Spanish and were aware of the comments that were being made. The only polite staff we came accross were the cleaning staff and the animation team. Everything was "extra" or "required a deposit", from the "Safe" in the room, to the pool towels (and for changing them), to access to the gym (key), to the tennis balls. The hotel reception was seriously understaffed.

                The rooms were very clean, cleaning services were also offered everyday even though I didn't as it was not necessary. Location for play del engles was fantastic only 10 minutes walk (leisurelly) from the Yumbo centre. The beach is quite far but the hotel has a free shuttle service to and from the beach. The pool area is very quite, two pools means kids pool is well away therefore if you need to relax in silence or read a book then it's great. A decent size pool as well (25m I think) which means I got some exercise as well!

                As long as you are not expecting broadway or west end shows, the entertainment is ok. I think if you do not like noise you my struggle because it goes on till about 11pm and I could hear it from my room, personally I was not bothered. The food has good variety but just not a high enough stndard for my taste (saying that I am a self confessd foodie!) so my standards are probably too high, however if you need something to line the stomach before heading out then this food will more than do.

                Price, room, food

                WiFi doesn't work. Entertainment is loud and intrusive. It is not a place you can relax unless you room does not face the stage.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Staff, accomodation, fairly good position, good value, cleanliness.

                Food buffet could be a bit better and the entertainment could be better too, although food and entertainment were acceptable.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                They remenbered us from last year and upgraded us to a very comfortable apartment (we booked a room).

                Restaurant a bit noisey as there were a lot of people and low ceilings.
