Santa Clara Bungalows
Ranked #43 of 134 Hotels in Playa del Ingles
Reviewed January 26, 2007

Just got back from a 2 week stay at the santa clara bungalows and it was excellent! This was my 5th time to playa del ingles but my 1st to santa clara, i was a little worried about what the bungalow would be like as it was such a bargain. It was lovely, newly refurbished and really spacious. We booked a 1 bedroom bungalow for myself, hubby, daughter and baby so thought we could make do with 1 bedroom, but we were actually given a 2 bedroom. The bungalow also had a front and back garden that had gates so it was really good for the kids. Not all bungalows were like this so we were lucky. Though it did seem that people with kids were given the ones with secure gardens.

The actual complex is also really nice, everythings been recently renovated so it all looked really nice. The pool bar was good (although only open till 5) with happy hour where you get 2 beers for 1, also nice reasonably priced snacks. The only bad point about the santa clara was that the pools were freezing but that may have been because it was january!

On reviews i read before alot of people complained about cockroaches and ants, i can honestly say we did not have 1 single cockroach in 2 weeks. we had a few ants but there was spray in the cupboard. Just be careful not to leave food laying around!

The greek restuarant next door does really nice food, not cheap though, but worth going to one night.

Santa Clara is also in a really good position, 5 mins walk either way takes you to the gran chaparral, the yumbo or the kasbah.

We had a wicked holiday and although weve only been back 2 days im looking at booking again!

Stayed: January 2007

My friend and I stayed at the Santa Clara Bungalows on April 1st 2006 for a week and had a great time.

Bearing in mind that they are 2 bedroom bungalows, they represent EXCELLENT value for money - especially if you manage to occupy them with 5 people. They are certainly NOT luxurious by any means. The bungalow we were in had seen better days and could have done with a "lick of paint" and a few of the fixtures could do with replacing. Having said that, they are clean and comfortable enough and each bungalow has it's own garden area with table and chairs. Do be warned though - the hot water tank is VERY SMALL and barely manages to cope with 2 people having showers, one after the other.

Many items are chargeable - 10 Euros to rent an ironing board for the week and 15 Euros to rent a safe for the week etc. The hotel has 2 pools and a children's pool, as well as a poolside snack bar open from 10am to 6pm, which has a limited selection available and a tennis court. The whole complex is quite nicely landscaped with grass and trees. I've seen reports about cockroach problems. Well, yes there are a few cockroaches around but what do people expect - it's impossible to expect there to be none at all, as all units are on the ground and each bungalow is surrounded by a grassy area to sit in. We saw 2 during the whole week - hardly cause for complaint.

There is a grocery store located adjacent to the complex and has all your basic food and hygiene requirements, as well as alocohol.

The location of the bungalows is fantastic, being just an 8 minute walk from the Yumbo Centre, with all the bars and restaurants etc. that can be found there.

If you're expecting luxury, this isn't for you but if you a looking for somewhere that is clean, comfortable, safe and represents very good value for money, then you won't be disappointed.

Having toured the Canaries and the Balearics extensively I have never ever experienced such a disgusting place in my life. A party of 16 left Glasgow to holiday in the third party island in europe and ended up in this hole. The cockroaches actually have their own residents comittee, the pool was disgusting and as for the staff any noise after 10pm (which is when the resort starts to come to life) is reported the tour reps who actually have in the past removed people, I was fortunate enough to be in a mixed age group of golfers and a few of them had seen sense to book a villa which ended up being used by ALL 16 of us. I would post photos but they are still with the travel company as we await compensation

Hi
Went to the bungalows as a family 4 adult's 5 children ages from 4 to 13 we all thought the site was good my wife was in a wheelchair we were told by our travel agent & Air tour's the door's were wide enough to get a wheelchair through they were not but the rep from our travel company was very good and got us a narrow wheelchair so my wife could get to the bathroom and other room's we then used our own wheelchair outside when we went out and about.The bungalow's are basic but we were only in first thing in the morning and last thing at night and they were clean we live in a very clean house and we were not offended by the bungalow's very good food at the Britannia also very good at the Yumbo centre for shopping and entertainment.

Bungalows very different .

We stayed here the first week in march.
Not every bungalow is clean, there is much difference between the
bungalows. Some have cockroaches and mice . The swimmingpools are nice , but cold.
Santa Clara is situated central. At friday and saterday night a lot of noise. Taxi costs 2.50 euro to the beach or shoppingcenters. There is a fence around each bungalow, which is handy with little children.
I would not go there a second time.
