I have stayed in several hotels in and around Playa del Ingles and the hotel Caterina is among one of the best. Located in quiet surroundings just 2 minutes walk from the sweeping sand dunes of Maspalomas, the Cita shopping centre and 10mins from the Yumbo centre, a warm welcome awaits you upon checking-in and throughout your stay from the friendly, polite and courteous staff. The room was large and spacious with a fridge and TV and a sizable bathroom that includes a strong mixer shower - a word of caution the water randomly changes temperature. For those who use a hairdryer take your own as the one provided is lame. This is the first hotel I have stayed in anywhere in the world that gives you a choice of times throughout the day to have your room cleaned – a great idea especially after a late night.
The pool area is kept tidy with plenty of sun loungers available yet can be noisy due to the entertainment provided. If you want a more peaceful place to relax there are 2 landscaped garden areas either end of the complex to do so with a roof top sundeck for those who prefer to go au natural!!!
There was plenty of choice at breakfast and dinner all presented to a high standard however do remember this is buffet eating so if your pallet is more attuned to gourmet or gastro delights you may be disappointed.
A word of advice, the all inclusive drinks bar was located outside by the pool where the evening entertainment also took place and it can get chilly so its advisable to take a thick jumper if you intend to sit out there. Alternatively you can take drinks to your room or the indoor bar area located next to reception.
Overall the Caterina represents good value for money, is spotlessly clean and succeeds in providing a pleasant stay for any guest I would certainly return.
