Enjoyed our stay. Food was good and the pool area was fantastic but the interior of the hotel and room is quite tired and dated although very clean. Have stayed in nicer places in Playa del Ingles for cheaper prices.

Really terrible food. very little choice and really bad combinations. Service also very bad, 2 x older male waiter's were rude. Walked into the restaurant one day for our 'all inclusive' lunch at 14:30 one of the days in our 'pool wear' (although sufficiently covered for lunch) and walked in to a full on wedding function in full swing.

This an old-fashioned hotel with old fashioned values, staff and service. If you want something fancy and modern, go somewhere else! I work in travel and I would call it a good 3* hotel. We were there during February Half Term and hotel was pretty quiet with mostly elderly German clientele. Breakfast and Dinner Buffets were not luxurious, but good... More

We stayed 2 nights in Hotel Rey Carlos. First of all at 16.40h it took the 30 minutes to check us in, incredible. We had a suite, the room was quite large, but everything very old, it should have been renovated since at least 10 years, the beds were certainly very old too. All this hotel has to be renovated...

Despite advertising the "suite" we booked as having a kitchenette, there were no pans with which to cook. I spoke to the receptionist who said that that was normal as this was a hotel, not an apartment. It was indeed everything an apartment in Playa del Inglés is. It had plates, knives, forks, spoons, a fridge, 2 rings etc etc,... More

I stayed here in November 2013 - having been to Gran Canaria several times and wanting somewhere centrally located for the beach and the nightlife. Despite some of the negative reviews I read beforehand, I decided to give it a go. I arrived around 8pm after a very long day and flight from England. Unfortunately, I had purchased a package...
