On our first trip to Gran Canaria, we chose Playa del Sol for one reason, the price.

If I'm being completely honest, I was not expecting much from the hotel especially given how little we'd paid.

I was completely shocked.

The rooms were clean, perfectly formed, comfortable beds, good shower, good kitchen facilities.

The pool area was clean, plenty of sun loungers, excellent bar with all day Happy Hour.

The proximity to the Yumbo was perfect, and there was minimal noise from the bars and clubs.

I would highly recommend the hotel to anybody going to Gran Can; and I will definitely be staying here again when I next visit the island.

Room Tip: Rooms with bedrooms facing the pool are much quieter than those with bedrooms facing the Yumbo.

First of all Price-location. Helpful staff. Nice spacious apartment with fridge and balcony! Considering the price we paid they were excellent value!!!Yumbo center for shopping and night life. You can hear some noise from the center all night, but if doors are locked... its lot less and easy to sleep. Dunes are 20 mins walk from here. Many restaurants so close . Rooms: Was comfortable and clean. The balcony facing the pool was bright with lot of sunlight! Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. Cleaning every day except Thurs & Sundays. Towels changed everyday! . Pool was empty mostly. The water was a bit cold (dont think its getting heated) but still possible to swim. You can smoke cigarettes at balcony-no problem! Beds very cosy & pretty big! Bathroom very spacious...large mirror...perfect!!!!
Two problems: Wi-Fi joke...paid € 28 for 11 days -breaking ! and bit of noise from Yumbo Center!!!!

Room Tip: We had 118 room...perfect. Ask -email them asking for bedroom from pool side. Never the other side! Yumbo center pretty noisy....Reception is downstairs-kind of basement

I've just returned from a week at these apartments and selected them having read the reviews on here. Pleased to say that I was not disappointed. Rooms were large, modern and spotlessly cleaned every day with nice bright decor and decent balconies. Great bathrooms with strong water pressure and hot double showers.

The gardens are very lush and well tended and the pool is larger than average around the properties I saw in the locality with lots of available sun loungers. Although this area is next to the road there are large bushes all around that deaden the noise dramatically and I have to say that I was surprised at how little traffic noise there was both there are in the room, certainly nothing that would keep you awake.

Its well located for Yumbo Center access (literally out the back door) but as all the rooms face away from it you don't have the eye sore of staring at it. You also don't feel compelled to go there every night although it is good daytime for shopping and restaurants etc.

No children is a great benefit as it is peaceful. The naturist roof terrace is interesting if not essential lol.

I would definitely stay here again just for the cost and the room itself. A lot of the Playa Del Ingles accomodation looks a bit down at heel be comparison. Its definitely not the prettiest of resorts but it does cater for everyone. The beach is short walk away whilst reaching the gay beach by foot takes about an hour and there only seems to be one route avoiding the dunes.

The hotel is very popular with gay clientele due to its location and I would definitely recommend it for gay travellers who prefer a less full on atmosphere experienced at some of the "closed" resorts. The accomodation standard at Playa Del Sol looks better too by comparison surprisingly.

If I have to niggle it would be paying for the TV remote (why?) and no kettle but they are minor.

Tip : Go for the 1 bed apartment option as the bedroom faces the balcony and away from the side of the Yumbo. The standard rooms have the bedroom window backing onto Yumbo and I reckon they could be noisy.

Room Tip: Go for the 1 bed apartment as the bedroom faces the balcony side of the road and away from the noise of the Yumbo Centre which parties to the early hours.

Great hotel for the price. Ideal for gay people - lots of entertainment around! We have paid £72 for 3 nights. Apartments were clean, really spacious and beds incredibly comfy . Internet access for bedroom is 5eur/day or 20eur/week . Connection is much better than downstairs in lobby (free connection in lobby). Nice pool area,always enough sun loungers. Beach is approximately 15 minutes walk. Had a really nice stay and would book again!

If you like Drag shows, visit Sparkles bar in Yumbo centre! The place is soooo much fun!!!

We are just back from staying at Playa Del Sol (our second time to stay here) and it was perfect. We had an amazing pool view on the 3rd floor and our balcony had sun all day. The room was very clean and had lots of nice touches such as water in your fridge, shampoo and shower gel and fresh clean towels daily.

The pool is relaxing due to the fact that there are no children. The surrounding pool area is clean and well maintained each day by staff.

The central location is also another reason we choose to stay here each year. There is a private door into the Yumbo centre and it is walking distance to some fantastic beaches.

Looking forward to my next visit in November!

Room Tip: All rooms have a pool view. The 3rd floor and up get great sun during the day!
