Well, where should I start. My husband and I had a one bed bungalow, which was basically furnished, with everything you would need, and a great base for exploring the resort with the beach a gentle 20 minute walk away. It was along the outside of the complex and I would strongly urge anyone who gets one of these to think of an excuse to get moved, as you can't use the outside space as the road is quite busy and passers by look in. I would think that just under half of the complex is privately owned. There are railings/fencing all around the perimeter with gates, although only permanent residents get keys, so you have to use the reception entrance. Security is very good. There is even barbed wire on top of the 6/7 foot railings. Cockroaches are a problem, although they sprayed half way through our week and killed them all. It got rid of them (though the dead ones stayed until the end of our holiday) but the spraying was so pungent we had to leave the site for a few hours. I would suggest you do the same if you have small children or chest problems. There is a TV in the room, although choice is very limited and you have to feed the meter 1 Euro for each hour. The rooms are cleaned every other day, but as mentioned previously, your feet do get very dirty indoors. None of this spoilt our holiday. If you've already booked, don't worry it's fine. Really. I have a feeling that most accommodation in the area is similar. One reservation - I really wouldn't recommend this place if you have a baby/toddler, as there are loose wires to suck and cockroaches to munch on. One other thing, we were'nt aware that Playa del Ingles is now the largest Gay centre in Europe. If you are gay, you'll have a lovely relaxing time with no one taking any notice of same sex couples. If you're straight, you may notice the first few couples then you stop noticing, if you are anyway homophobic, best not go at all, then everyone can have a nice time!
