We originally booked a riu hotel in maspalomas, but after the company double booked our room we got moved to this new hotel. After searching the internet for some information on the gold by marina we were very anxious as to what to expect as it was a brand new hotel opening in July 2014 (we arrived 2nd July 2014)!!...

I stayed in one of the apartments last year for a week. I was happy enough with the kitchen, but the rest were quite poor to be honest. Very dated furnitures, very dated bathroom. The place was clean enough, and it was OK for sleep, but probably wouldn't go back. The wind was banging the balkony door constantly. My biggest... More

It was comically bad. But it was so bad it made are holiday more fun, if you can understand what I mean. Whilst we were staying there,... More

Only get what u pay for, service ok very helpful, clean ish although I booked it as it advertised laundry facilities which it doesn't have. Can be a little noisy. Great location , most annoying thing is they wouldn't give us extra towels for the pool.

This was our second trip to Playa del Ingles and these apartments suited us fine. They are fairly basic and the decor is pretty much stuck in the 1970s. Having said that, our room was clean, reasonably spacious and on the ground floor near to the pool, while still remaining private and not overlooked. The staff were pleasant enough and... More

We appreciated the location but slightly disappointed by apart-hotel facilities - ie none, but admittedly out of season. Best points - good for local supermarket and buses, easy stroll to beach. Found the resort pretty run down compared to other Canary islands. Very very quiet, mostly older people and we didn't speak to anyone English in the whole week -... More

The day shift female receptionist whose name is Juani never smiled for the week I stayed there. On the last day when I left a tip with her for all reception staff and she was a little more pleasant. Juani could not be bothered taking calls regarding maintenance needed in my room. The toilet seat never stayed up and eventually... More
