“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Good location in the centre of playa del ingles, check-in was quick and smooth, apartment was a one bedroom, with twin beds, it was clean and functional, small kitchen area with microwave and 2 ring hob, main area consisted of sofa bed, chair, there is a TV but you need to rent the remote control from reception.

Bathroom again clean, with large shower. Towels are a bit on the flimsy side.

Free wifi is available in the reception area, but wifi is also in all rooms, reasonable cost, 15euro for 4 days. Speed questionable at times.

Large pool area with plenty of sun loungers, choose the pool area or grassed area.

Noise can be heard from yumbo centre until about 3am, depending on what way you bedroom is facing.

Cost is good, about £21 per night, booked mine through travel republic and you get a discount ..

Overall a good stay

Stayed May 2014, traveled solo

Four of us decided to stay at the Play Del Sol for a weeks stay and we were not disappointed at all. We paid very little to stay here and too be honest it was worth more.

The pro's for us were:

It was close to the Yumbo centre, in fact you couldn't get closer. A lot of people have said there was a lot of noise during the night, however there are two types of room. One whose bedroom is at the front (poolside) and the other whose bedroom is at the back (Yumbo side). We had a poolside room and had no trouble with noise at all.

The hotels location is great for everyone. It's 20min away from the airport in a taxi and a short walk away from the beach and seafront bars. There is a bus stop outside as well as a taxi station, which always had cabs.

The hotel was clean and tidy and we had maid service 5 days out of the 7, which was a bonus. The rooms were spacious and had everything you needed. Microwave/grill two hobs and all the glasses and dishes you need if cooking.

The pool area is great and the pool was not cold at all. There are plenty of sun beds and places to chill out although not a lot of shade. The pool bar however is a must if you need a drink or snack as the prices are reasonable for a hotel.

The con's? Well not a lot to be honest.

The big one for us was there was NO air con. I know this might not bother some but the island can get very warm as it was when we were there, and sleeping in that heat was a nightmare.

Wi-Fi.... There was free wi-fi in the hotel but this is limited to the reception only! It does NOT reach any room or poolside. If you want wi-fi on your room you have to pay 15 euro's per week, which to be honest isn't a lot but in this day and age it should be free.

There are no irons at the hotel but you can hire one from reception (through an external company) for 12 euro's for the week.

Would I go back? Yes. The hotel is great for what it is and nothing more. Will certainly recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a bedroom which faces the pool. Some bedrooms were at the back facing the Yumbo which can ge...

This was my 3rd time staying at these apartments and again, I was very impressed.

Rooms are large, very clean and suitably equipped. Shower was of a good size and the bathroom was also very clean. In particular, the housekeeping staff were super friendly and went out there way to make sure the apartment was kept clean.

Reception staff also very pleasant.

Great location to the Yumbo; we upgraded to a room on the 5th floor which we thought was good value.

I'd definitely recommend the apartments but would suggest requesting/upgrading to a room on a higher floor.

The only downside is the lack of wifi, however there is wifi in the reception area.

We have just arrived home after spending a week at The Playa Del Sol. The apartments are very spacious, clean and good facilities. With a small kitchen, the only downside was no kettle - instead a coffee maker which could be used to heat water, we just found it easier to boil a saucepan. The microwave doubles up as a grill cooker combi,so you could make toast if you wished. The bathroom was good with a lovely powerful hot shower, also a hairdryer, and saved me having to take mine. The hotel has a great pool area,and also a nuditst sunbathing area on the roof, which we didn't visit but worth pointing out. It was great being an adult only hotel, no offence but having bought up our children it is lovely to just relax without worrying about other peoples kids! The reception is well staffed with a small supermarket, where you can get the essentials and not over priced. The staff are well worth a mention...just lovely, always happy and smiling, and all spoke English and very helpful. Just a few pointers to hire a safe it was 35 Euro for the week and get 10 back at the end of the week, which we felt was a bit steep. The wifi was 20 a week or you could get it free in reception. We didn't bother with the TV so didn't ask about the rental. There is a great bar and restaurant on the ground floor, the menu and food looked lovely although we didn't eat there, just because we wanted to explore the town. Last year we stayed at the Buenos Aires which is just the other side of the Yumbo, to compare both they are just as good as each other pros and cons with both. We didn't have any noise issues - great location would definitely stay there again. The beds by the way were by far the most snuggliest with a proper mattress topper and super soft duvet...zzzzzzzz :) :) :)

Room Tip: We were in 216 which had the bedroom window opening onto the poolside, some others opened onto the Y...

We really had amazing time in Playa del Sol Apartments. Gran Canaria at all is amazing and this hotel was just perfect. Apartment we got was large and we were more than happy :) It was clean and well equiped - simply everything you need :) Also swimming pool was perfect and very cleaned. It was obvious that staff cared a lot about garden and surrounding. We havent tried the restaurant, but one minute from hotel you can find several shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Great choice !

When I booked this apartment my expectations were low because of the cheap price. It turned out to be a fantastic bargain. Very clean room which is very well serviced by the housekeeping team, adequate size pool, restaurant and bar. The airport bus stops right outside the hotel entrance. The dunes are a 5/10 minute walk straight along Av de Tirajana, which also has plenty of nice restaurants and cafe's.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the pool as it is the quiet side of the complex.

My friend and I lived here for one week.
Most of the balconies are facing the sun, so you can watch the sunset, nice pool and pool area. Many trees and grass too, if you want to lay in the shade.

Bathroom was nice, clean and the water held a high pressure even on the top floor.

It's all you could want from an Apartment.
