First I will mention the good bits. Location was brilliant out side the gate turn left to the mini island go across and there on the left was the Jumbo centre, left at the island takes you to the beach front about a fifteen minute walk down hill up hill coming back but good exercise after all the tasty food., don't believe all you read about the Jumbo centre it was great. Out of the gate and turn right not far away is the Kasbah centre again don't believe all you read spent many a good night there. There was a lovely lady on reception at the bungalow's I think her name was Carola very helpful, although the shower didn't look much it was great and lots of hot water, the pool was very good and always clean. Inside the bungalow there was a two ring hob, a microwave a coffee perculator. The towels were lovely and soft not like you normally get in hotels. The reason the sun beds were chained together I guess is people keep taking them to their own bungalows, which is not fair on people who want to bathe round the pool.
Now if you read my previous reviews you will see I am not a whinger or moaner but I did expect more for what I paid having read previous reviews people go on about budget and cheap accommodation. The rooms especially bedroom got very hot no ceiling fan so we had to go to reception and pay 15 euro for rent of fan plus10 euro deposit, we could of hired a large air conditioner but was more expensive but when we got the fan back the lead on it was very short and the only socket was between the two beds so it was useless we had to put it on the drainer by the sink and aim it at bedroom. Then we had to pay a deposit for the key to the safe which was 13 euro plus 12 euro charge then we got in and saw there was no kettle but couldn't afford any more deposits as our spending money was dwindling fast so we just boiled a pan of water for tea, on 2 ring hob and no oven how can you do self catering with on 2 ring hob and no oven??? Non of the doors fitted properly toilet, wardrobe and glass sliding front door had trouble shutting all of them. The bungalow was small inside which didn't bother me as I wasn't going to spend much time indoors. The bungalow was in a block of four two facing pool 2 facing a very busy road, we were facing the road day time not bothered but very noisy most of the night and early morning, the lady in our block had a yapping dog although there were signs all round sight say on dogs allowed, thankfully the dog only noisy during day.There were 2 dead cockroaches left for 2 days until we decided to sweep them up. You will see from the pics all rooms badly needed decorating were in very poor state. The tv didn't work it was coin operated we put money in but couldn't get no signal what so ever, didn't want to go back to recepton in case it was another charge to hire tv.
As I have said I expected more for what we paid for the holiday but we still had a great holiday and loved Play del Inglis plenty to do and see. Great location but not good accommodation the choice is yours
