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...

On enquiry what this was he said for Local Police, I protested that I did not see and mention of Police. Just grabbed the room Key back of me and said... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days last week. Although it was dated, it was by no means shabby, and was very clean. The rooms had a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and lounge, and a reasonably sized balcony. The pool area was great too. It was in easy walking distance from all of Playas facilities, and I have to say,... More

Oh Rey Carlos. My partner and I booked a very last minute get away to Gran Canaria through icelolly.com. The holiday company were great, very organised and all went to plan, however it might of been a better experience if we stayed on the coach the whole trip. As we arrived at the Rey Carlos we were simply catapulted into... More

the hotel is like something out of an old grand estate, suits of armour and statuettes in the foyer, old style wooden furniture that really suits it. The staff on reception were very helpful and the room maids were terrific, the rooms were cleaned and linens changed everyday. the waiters were wonderful and the food was excellent, the only two...
