“Lovely Holiday”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

Just home from a week holiday with my boyfriend. This hotel is really lovely. (1) The rooms were brilliant, the shower was amazing and the bed is HUGE. We had a view of the sea..not fantastic but as good as it can be in a built up area. (2) The food was great - had so much choice and never got bored of it. Different choices every night and presented beautifully. (3) The pool area is great - never had problems getting sun-beds or feeling overcrowded. The pools are lovely, with a great and good value bar in the middle with yummy cocktails.(4) Evening entertainment was a bit mediocre. Some acts were great, some were really quite bad but that may be personal taste. (5) The staff were generally very warm and welcoming and happy to help. Only one member of staff made us feel like we were a nuisance to him, and unfortunately it seems like he was a manager of some sort as he was always in a suit and not in waiting/serving uniforms like the others. Everyone was lovely though and did the hotel proud. (6) Wifi was provided free, but didn't reach room. This wasn't an issue though as I just used it when in reception or having drinks and you could pay to have a better connection if you wished. (7) The beach area in Playa del Ingles is very touristy and busy, but as the pool is so lovely we didn't spend much time at all there. One thing you must do is the Moonlight Cinema - a wonderful experience and perfect for celebrating a special occasion. We also visited Puerto Mogan which is a beautiful town. We went on Market day (Friday) so it was heaving - the market really wasn't worth it either so I would recommend going on a quiet , peaceful day.

Overall the hotel cannot be faulted, and I will definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Odd numbers face the sea and entertainment stage which was great to watch from your room if you fanc...

What a wonderful hotel ! Just returned from a brilliant 2 weeks holiday , the hotel is spotless everywhere, the rooms are nicely decorated and modern, the staff were very friendly and helpful and always smiling ( something you don't always see !! ) the food was fantastic, plenty of choice (even sushi if that's your thing ) and always piping hot. The bars and shops are only a 5 min walk away, and a good choice for all ages. The rep Kelly is a lovely girl and obviously loves her job and always had time for a chat with you,she never gave you the "hard sell" other reps have given us before. All in all this is a first class hotel and we will definately go back !!

Room Tip: Ask for high floor,better view

This hotel was wonderful to stay in! We had a fab holiday! The rooms were modern, of a good size and cleaned everyday. The hotel staff were very friendly. Going on holiday as a vegetarian is always difficult and this hotel catered to a good standard- breakfast was great, although some evenings there was absolutely nothing we could eat, so we had to go out- which we didn't mind as we like to sample local restaurants. Sometimes some of the food wasn't actually labelled so we had to ask what was in it. The hotel did say if we couldn't find anything we could speak to the manager- but we didn't we just ate out. The pool area is very nice- the pool itself is quite big and there is an area with hot tubs to relax in and lots of sun beds available- we never had trouble with finding one.
The hotel entertainment was absolutely fantastic! Acrobatic shows and singers- a different show every evening- they only lasted 45 mins but was great to sit outside with a drink and be entertained! The bad points that I have is there are charges to use the fridge in your room and safe charges (approx 12€ each for the week)- which is wrong really they should be included in the room charge! The free Wi- fi that you got didn't work in my room- you probably had to stand at reception to get a decent signal? Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel! And if I ever go back to Gran Canaria I would stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms opposite the stage will get a good view of the evening entertainment And rooms on the other si...

We have just returned from a 14 night stay at this hotel. Overall we were very impressed, it certainly helped the fact it was adult only and there were no screaming children running about. It means the hotel is relaxing and pretty quiet (it is not a party hotel). The day entertainment team are really good, friendly and supportive, we only joined in the activities on our second week and wish we had joined them earlier. The day entertainment team (Kirsty, Peter and Claudine) are not pushy and the other people taking part in the competitions supportive (usually a group between 5 - 10 people) i would very much recommend having a go at rifles, archery, darts whatever even if you think you will be hopeless. It was also a good way to meet other people in the hotel.

The rooms are large and spacious, the shower is good and the rooms are clean. It was a shame that there were no coffee/tea making facilities and that the mini-bar/fridge was unstocked (ours was also unlocked so we didn't pay to get the key). The air con is about average, i would have liked it a little cooler but it was enough to cool the room.

The food (we only ate breakfast really) was good, as we would expect at a hotel like this having stayed in a few similar places before. However the coffee in the machines is disappointing and they should really think about investing in new machines. Also the toast machines are a bit annoying because people don't know how to use them, so rather than slowing it down they keep it going quickly and end up having to put their bread in several times.... a bit annoying when you are stuck behind someone in the line.

Good location about 10 minutes walk from the beach and the Yumbo centre. Although very late at night (post midnight) there are one or two prostitutes on the road opposite but i wouldn't let that put you off staying here.

Overall -> not a party hotel, so don't go looking for that. A very nice relaxing hotel with fantastic day activity organisers, lots of space around the pool and nice rooms. We would certainly stay here again (as long as it stays adult only) and will look to this chain in other places we may visit.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have a larger balconies.

Booked this hotel through a Thomson late deal after checking out the reviews on trip advisor. Can't really fault the hotel except for the lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. the rooms were spotless, the food was excellent (if people say it was a bit repetitive how many different plates of food did they eat each night)., and the staff from maids to check-in and restaurant staff were polite courteous and friendly. The noise from the road behind the swimming pool can be a bit annoying. The Thomson representative at the hotel friendly and helpful and the transfers to and from the airport were fine. Well done from us to all of the staff at the hotel. It's a pity that Playa del Ingles is not as nice as the hotel was as there were too many closed shops and shabby looking shopping centres for us. Highlight of the trip was the yellow submarine journey at Puerto Mogan....

Room Tip: rooms furthest away from the swimming pool will have less road noise
