We stayed at the hotel during February half term and really enjoyed our stay. Obviously, the hotel is not near the beach, but everything you need is on site, for every age group. We enjoyed the swimming pools, table tennis, darts, pool, volleyball, pétanque and relaxing in the generous area outside our apartment. There is also off street parking for...

We have stayed here a few times in a bungalow, which is great. This time we had a one bedroom apartment for two weeks. At first we were given apartment 477. It was very cold, no sun ever and the noise from the restaurant was really loud. You cannot sleep until it ends. We immediately hoped to be changed, but...

We stayed in an apartment and it was much noice from the lounge bar outside so some of us had trouble to sleep. Excellent pool area and sunbeds, great staff. The bungalows look really nice to stay in!

The hotel is located far from beach and is built on a very busy & noisy roundabout. Traffic noise runs till very late night and starts early morning. Horribly noisy, especially from the Hotel resto which is located slightly outwards and plays senselessly rubbish loud music every night till late night. Could not sleep properly even a single night.

Dear Anil Kumar S , I am sorry for reading your remark. The hotel is not located in first line of the beach, but very close to all other attractions of Playa del Ingles. The music of the bar is the night animation, which does not last more than 11.30h. in the evening. The hotel was renovated in 2015, therefore...

This is a review of the apartments and not the bungalows (the hotel has 53 bungalows and near 100 apartments in the main building). The main building is built in a "V" shape with the balconies on the inside of the "V". Unfortunately, the building is positioned so half the apartments face south (sun all day on the balcony) while...

Nice pool areas with lots af activities by the side. Suitable for any age. Nice and service minded staff. Since we were celebrating a 50th birthday it was a very nice and unexpected gesture of the hotel when they delivered a bottle of cava and sweets with a greeting card to the room.
