Just returned from staying at these apts. A bottle of wine on arrival - lovely touch. They are in an excellent location - 2 mins to the beach and had a sea view. New kitchen and very well equipped. Nicely decorated apt and had flat screen tv on wall (need to rent it though). Can get wifi in room but need to pay. Apt do a deal for tv/wifi/safe. Very well kept apts with nice pool. Usually plenty of beds available. Would defo return to these apts as they were very good value for money and ideal location. Staff very friendly too.

Room Tip: Rooms nearer the beach side of the apts have better sea view.

We requested an upper floor apartment at the time of booking our 19 night stay. Just prior to departing, I read that there were building works nearby, I emailed the apartments and was very impressed to receive a response within an hour. It confirmed that there were “building works but not in the hotel, is on the street in front (not much noise)”.
On arrival, check-in was quick and efficient. We didn’t receive any bottle of wine that other reviewers have mentioned.. oh, well!
We were allocated an apartment on the 3rd floor (309) which had full view of the roadworks and a palm tree. Unfortunately, we did not have a seaview to the tree.
It was clean and adequate for our needs. The kitchen had a full sized fridge freezer and all the necessary utensils, kettle, coffee maker etc, there was a utility area, a second bedroom and a nice sized balcony. The main bedroom (on the roadside) had adequate storage space and plenty of coat-hangers.
On our first morning we were woken with a start by the almighty noise of the roadworks at 8am which continued until 6.30pm. This happened every day except at the weekend. They had not moved that far up the road by the time we left. So, if you like a lie-in and are considering these apartments in the very near future you might want to check on the progress. The signage showed that the roadworks should be completed by November 2013. Also, the road itself is quite busy with traffic.
The location of the apartments is good, 2 minutes to the beach and 10 minutes to Yumbo (we timed it!).
The cleaners came everyday except Thursday and Sunday. Towels and bedding were changed regularly.
The pool on the 6th floor is small but clean with about 20 sunbeds in total but at the time we were there it was quite quiet and on occasions had it to ourselves. When it did get busy at the weekend or we wanted a late sunbathe, we used the large rooftop solarium. The shade started coming over the pool area from about 4pm and was completely in the shade by 6pm.
Towards the end of our holiday, some maintenance was being carried out; painting of walls, stairwell, pool area being spruced up and new mattresses being delivered. Again, if you are looking to book to go imminently, best check that this is the extent of the work as on one day there was a lot of drilling competing with the roadworks!
We enquired about keeping the apartment on our last day as we had a later flight, unfortunately they were full. They offered us clean towels to use to freshen up by the pool, as there is not a courtesy room or shower facilities.
Overall, these are good 2 key apartments and I would recommend to anyone who is an early riser that enjoys a close proximity to the beach. I would suggest an upper level room ending in 1 to 5 which enjoy a better view and are further down from the roadworks!

Room Tip: Upper level, ending in 1 to 5

I have just returned from Las Gondolas from a 2nd stay. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and polite, the location is right on the beach and a 10 min walk from the Yumbo. I would stay with Las Gondolas anytime I travel to Play Del Ingles

Room Tip: Request a higher floor for better sea view

My friend and I visit Gran Canaria each year on a girly trip to escape the cold of UK. We usually stay in PDI as there is so much to do. This is the 1st year we have chosen self catering apartments. I found las gondolas through tripadvisor reviews, it's a fantastic little place, only 5 minutes from everything you could need. We flew in with Ryan air, as usual you get what you pay for. We took transfers from travel republic for £6 each return and they dropped us at the apartment gates. Check in was quick and easy, we were allocated a room on 1st floor.
Reception has 2 comfy chairs and free wifi, great for catching up on facebook. Outside reception is a seating area and paved area, no ball games allowed but has a small pool table. car hire available from outside reception too.
There is a lift to all floors, lovely swim pool on floor 4 and a sun terrace on the roof with sea views.
Our room had 2 bedrooms both with twin beds, A kitchenette with fridge, freezer, hob, kettle, coffee machine, cutlery and crockery. Table with 4 chairs, small sofa, tv and storage shelves, bathroom with shower over the bath and a balcony with table & 4 chairs facing the beach with a sea view. Good wardrobe and drawer space. Water pressure was good.
Apartments were quiet and spacious with comfy beds. The supermarket is 2 minute walk over the road, shops, bars and restaurants only a 5 minute walk down the road to the beach front.
We used the hotel next door for their buffet breakfast E4.95, filled us up for the day, they also do goid value lunch and dinner buffet menu. The beach is lovely, we spent lots of time enjoying the sunshine with a bottle of wine or sangria. Don't forget your plastic wine glasses!
Whilst we were there the road was being dug up, so it was noisy on one day, it can be noisy with traffic, if it bothers you, sleep in the back bedroom.
Las Gondolas is a little gem, fantastic value for money £140 for 4 nights end April/May. Great facilities, great location, only 3 euro taxi to yumbo as the walk up the hill was too much like hard work.
Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All have a balcony sea view as the balconies are on the side facing the beach front

Apartments are roomy, airy, nice and suited for about 4 people. They are very cheap and about 2 minutes from the beach. Yumbo/Kashbah centres are about a 5-10 minute walk away. Kitchen is better stocked than most hotels of this class - no charges for microwave, decent sized fridge/freezer/toaster/kettle.

The downside is the other residents. The week I went at least 4 surrounding apartments were basically on 18x7 party mode. This wasn't pleasant. Management made no effort to control the situation. I'd nights where I hadn't a single hours sleep. I'd suggest if you have a family or want to sleep at night, go elsewhere. However, if you're a party animal, you'll probably feel at home.

Note also, wifi isn't actually free - only in reception - its 20 euro for a week or 45 for a week of tv, safe and internet access. Its also EXTREMELY poor. There is no tv at all without ordering it - if you want it.
One last comment is that there are no food/drink facilities but plenty close by.

Towels were changed most days and the place well cleaned nearly every day. The solarium on the roof is really nice and a pool terrace at the side which is pleasant.

Room Tip: Not sure really - ask for a higher room? Most of the noise seemed to come from lower floors.
