“Basic apartments but very central to Yumbo Centrum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Stayed here for a week cannot fault the position of the hotel. Right oposite the Yumbo Centrum but no noise at night.

The hotel was very basic but you get what you pay for. We had a self catering room. One bedroom, Bathroom and Balcony.

Maid service often, I think it was 6 out of 7 days. Bus stop right outside if you want to go anywhere or a 10 min walk to the beach.

I would stay here again if i was looking for budget accomodation.

Just back from 11 days at Los Tilos. Check in was fast and we were allocated room 416. Perfect for all day sun, and great view over the huge pool. The room was basic, but for 2 key property it was fine.
Traditional Spanish furniture, twin beds, lots of wardrobe space, and regular bathroom. The hot water ran out if you had a long lengthly shower, but after 30 mins wait it was ready to go again. Kitchen was well equipped, and we boiled the water in the saucepan if it was needed. I think you could rent a kettle if you needed one. Spacious balcony with table and 3 chairs and a clothes drying line.
The apt was cleaned regularly, and the linen was changed once during our stay but fresh towels were changed 4 times. The apt was kept clean but little dust bombs could be found blowing around under the bed or in a corner sometimes, but to be honest on any tiles floor that's gonna happen. The cleaning ladies were prompt and friendly although any of my spanish is limited to ordering 2 beers, they were happy to sign and gesture if everything was ok!
So in general, the location was perfect as we only needed the Yumbo which is across the road. The bus stop outside takes you to maspalmomas beach for 1.40, and you can also get it to the airport. 10 min walk down to the beach front, and over all I was impressed. The bar by the pool does great food and well priced. Will I be back???
YES, and have already reserved!!!

Room Tip: Room 416, but any room from 111-120, 211-220, 311-320, 411-420 are all on the sunny side!

We arrived in Gran Can May 2010 again for pride and were booked into a vile hotel so duly left and spent our first day walking hotel to hotel looking to walk in and book a room for a week - fortunately los Tilos had a room.

I cannot really give any complaints about this hotel other than the rooms were a tad dark and dreary. The hotel itself is across from Yumbo so ideal in my eyes. We loved our stay here. Seems more popular with non English guests evaluated from those around pool and at bar.

Be warned I tried to rebook here Nov 2010 for pride 2011 and they were already fully booked - very popular hotel.

Oh and I almost forgot - I was mugged on my first night there and keys stolen. The next day the staff had my locks chaged with no charge to myself. We stayed here pride 2010 however this won't let me backdate my review that far.

Clean pool, rooms cleaned daily. fantasticly central to the local nightlife. Had a ground floor appartment with patio doors opening onto the pool! Only downside is lack of aircon in the room - made nights a bit warm.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on ground floor for direct access to patio :)

Well as everyone says great place to stay and explore the resort. Yes maybe basic but clean and tidy with some friendly staff. Guys on reception always polite and friendly and helpful. You have the Yumbo centre right across the road with choices of bars, restaurants and shops.The Kasbah centre is only 5mins walk too. Beach is only 5-10mins away depends which way you go!
The restaurant on site is great value for money and great food.
Have stayed twice at these apartments and would readily use them again.Buses stop right out side, taxi rank across the road too. Tip if flying without transfer get the bus only euros 4 and bus stops outside the apartments.

We stayed at Los Tilos for a 4-night holiday to celebrate a friend's birthday. On arrival, Reception was charming and helpful and we were given an apartment on the 4th floor. The apartments are fairly standard Spanish holiday rooms, maybe a little larger than some, nicely, if predictably decorated. The usual two twin narrow beds with basic mattresses, adequate wardrobe space (and hangers) and good size bathroom with bidet and a quite effective shower. The lounge is adequate, with a bed-setteem, and an armchair, coffee table and tv which we didn't use so cqan't comment on that. The kitchen was equipped with a full fridge/freezer and a coffee filter machine. Enough cups, places, saucers, glassware, cutlery and saucepans for three people; and a four-ring electric hob.
The balcony was huge, overlooking the pool and with a distant sea view which was a bonus. It had a table and three chairs and a thinggy for hanging washing or a towel to dry.
There is an on-site restaurant-bar which we didn't use but which seemed popular.
Because Thomas Cook Airlines lost our luggage we were unable to use the pool but it seemed very inviting and well-maintained. There is also a children's pool. There are plentry of sun loungers and sunshades too.
Because of the luggage situation we had to ask the two Receptionists to telephone Thomas Cook's ground agents at Las Palmas Airport several times during our stay and they (the Receptionists) were unfailingly polite, sympathetic and helpful. The duty Receptionist on Sunday morning, when the luggage did eventually make an appearance, seemed almost as delighted as were were!
Because the partments are immediately opposite the Yumbo Centre, we had expected late night noise but there was none - the only thing we heard was the occasional bus - there is a bus stop immediately outside the enhtrace to the apartments, which are directly on the street.
We found the apartments to be better than we expected and we would recommend them to anyone wishing to stay in central Playa del Ingles, close to all the Yumbo has to offer both days and night. Note that there is not a 24-hour reception here, so your room key will open the gates after about 9pm ...

Room Tip: Try not to get rooms on sunken ground floor which are darker and have open balconies overlooking the...

Los Tilos is situated in the heart of the resort, directly opposite the entrance to the Yumbo Centre, but there is no noise problem. The pool area is ideal to relax the day away and you'll find a great lunch in the poolside restaurant.
Apartments are basic but there is everything you need for a holiday.
There's a supermarket just a minutes stroll away, and buses stop right outside. There is Wifi (payable locally), Internet connection in the lobby, and a safe can be rented.
There is a pool table outside the restaurant.
