Perfect location in the middle of resort Playa del Ingles but quiet and relaxing itself. Spacious bungalow with rustical decor. Kitchen fully equipped. A small flat screen TV. Amazing sun terrace with sun beds, garden table and chairs. Sun operating here all day - all the bungalows' terraces facing South. Every bungalow has a small but cooling swimming pool nearby....

The complex was very basic, but you get what you paid for. Location was great for the Yumbo centre. We arrived and had to wait for someone to arrive with a key (just 1 key for a two bed apartment) Its a mixture of private and holiday lets. Was nice and quiet around the pool (5 to choose from) No...

Me and a friend stayed here for 2 weeks just gone in july. Nice bungalows and pools, basic but got everything you need. Bedding only got changed once in the 2 weeks and towels 3x. Towels are small and worn but it didn't really bother us. Beds were alright but the pillows were flat as pancakes and soo uncomfy! We... More

Stayed 10th-17th June. On arrival, dropped at gate but reception closed, had to trawl over to Tinache apartments to get keys. First impressions, nicely maintained sprawling bungalow complex with small (ish) pools, lots of established gardens and palms. Allocated Bungalow B-08. Good spacious lawned area front and rear. Furnishings were the standard Playa del Ingles furniture, plastic table and chairs... More

The bungalows are a mix of owned and rented properties but everyone seemed warm and friendly with a cheery wave or smile. Had D17 which is a basic two bed bungalow with all the ameniites you would require for a short stay in Playa del... More

Nice bungalows but unhelpful staff The bungalows are basic but they do the job. Near the Yumbo and about 15 mins to the beach. Overall a good base. Be aware that the reception service is very limited and when it is open some of the staff are rude and unhelpful. You will probably have to go to a bar across... More
