Stayed at this hotel for 1 week with my husband in September all inclusive, and generally the hotel is very good, all the staff are very friendly and helpful, nice and clean in all areas of the hotel. Entertainment and crew very good, always trying to get you involved and have fun, they had great activites throughout the day and by the pool. The pool area is very clean and tidy, the hotel states that you cant leave towels on sunbeds in the early morning and they would be removed, we did this on a few occasions and the towels weren't removed. The only complaint I would have with the pool area, as you don't get the sun all day, if you want a suntan, head to the beach. Drinks were good and the cocktails. The food was nice, but very repeative and didn't have a variety of choice, which lets it down, they seem to have the same food every day, which is okay for some, but I do like to try different things.
The rooms are standard, could do with abit of a refurb, we were overlooking the main road, which is abit noisy, get get your value of money, I thought the beds were very uncomfortable too.
A nice area to stay in, about a 10 min walk to the same shops, bars and resturants. I would recommend for a great night out to visit bar Sparkles, its a drag show, and its brilliant, and had fantastic cocktails, great nightlife. Also a free bus fare to the beach, if you want to be lazy. Also take a trip to Palmitos Park, lots of animals their and also dolphins.
Overall I would return back to Playa Ingles, but maybe try a different hotel.
