Whole area is tacky, crowded and full of restaurants and souvenir shops. Think Benidorm and you'll have a fair idea.

When you are walking from playa del Ingles towards Maspalomas, you always know when you are getting close as you begin to get close as you can see the lighthouse. It's an iconic landmark and is lovely to see from the beach.

Make sure you take a leisurely stroll along this part of the promenade. Give yourself time to browse the upmarket shops (you'll get approached by sales staff; just be firm and say no if you don't intend to buy) and enjoy some of the superior eating establishments.
