“No security”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

all in all we had a great holiday but I wouldn't stay at the guinea apartments again due to there lack of security although we payed to hire a safe on our last evening because the reception closed at no7pm we had to return the safe keys to reception before they closed or we would lose our deposit this was all well and good but as our flight was 7am that next morning we had to leave our valuables in our packed cases ready to be picked up at 4am by coach . As this was our last evening we no choice but to leave our cases in our locked room .after having our last meal out and a great last night on holiday we returned to our room only to see a stranger emerging from our room and running away down the balcony . All our money and other valuables had been taken .as the reception was closed we call the police only to be told that they would not come to our apartments and if we wanted to report the break in we had to go to the nearest police station thank god we had insurance .the police where great and gave us all the paper work we needed to make a claim.but we where all in agreement including the police that this was an inside job and that they knew that we where leaving that night and we would be packed to leave .

Just like most hotels in Gran Canaria you get what you pay for. I requested a high floor with a sea/pool view which was fantastic. The apartments were clean and the kitchen was the best I've had so far. Having a full size fridge/freezer was excellent for 4 people. Didn't have a TV but I think you can request them. The reception is closed for 4 hours during the day but we didn't really need them. Central location and great value for money

Room Tip: High floor so you get the sea view

Stayed in a 2 bed apartment for 1 week in September. Nice clean rooms and pool area. Maid service Mon to Sat, towels changed on request. Small kitchen area with fridge/freezer/microwave/toaster provided. Good location near beach/restaurants/bars accessible in a lift or down steps. Not too roudy when we were there although walls are paper thin so even people walking around or coughing in other rooms sounds like they're in your apartment. Few minutes walk to the yumbo centre. The apartments pool bar/snack bar wasn't opened at all while we were there but there are shops close by to get your own refreshments. Nice place would stay again as price was very reasonable.

i first wrote a review for these apartments in 2011...we paid under £500. for 2 of us so were not expecting the ritz,however we did get more than expected...to read some of the reviews on here is a tad sad,what do folk expect when paying peanuts! Yes they are noisy but then so is everywhere when located right by bars and nightlife...youngsters will go there as it is in their budgets...You will come across cockroaches in most hot countries,so here is not unique...we go in October & its quieter,the apartments have always been clean,the staff extremely helpful & friendly...the location brilliant...we always opt for a high floor as the views are stunning. We are looking forward to going again this october...for the bad reviews,if you want peace & quiet & 5 star accommodation, then pay 5* prices in accommodation outside of lively resorts...the Guinea apartments are cheap,cheerful & ideally located for nightlife & the beach...

Room Tip: ask for higher floors for a stunning view

Stayed here at the end of june for 11 days and i have to say for the price it was superb value for money.Great location, clean , comfortable . sea views and slap bang in the middle of this action packed resort. Yes some noise from the younger population and a few late night pool parties to contend with . But hey if you are on holiday who cares.Fantastic little kitchen with microwave and family sized fridge freezer large terrace with sea view and rooms cleaned daily to a very good standard.Guy on reception was the most helpful guy i met in such locations when out toaster packed up on a sunday morning we had a replacement within half hour.Dont go if you want peace and quite. Dont go if you are offended by the gay and bixesual community and dont go if you want to be tucked up by midnight. However if you want fun and be near to the action ideal for children say over 11 who wont be in bed early and a 5 min walk to the beech then book now .

Room Tip: high floor great views

I had the worst stay I've ever had ANYWHERE. The rooms were adequate, to be fair. However, the cockroaches were intolerable. The noise of a night was, again, intolerable. The people who stayed there - for the most part intolerable. Lack of aircon... Yes, intolerable. We had to complain persistently about the lads who kept throwing glasses/bottles form the top balcony into the pool area, and they were eventually removed. The lack of staff presence was a problem. The same group of people antagonised everyone else. It was a relief to leave this hotel. I would only return if they attracted a higher caliber of guest and brought in aircon. They need some staff to have a look around every now and then too. The surrounding area isn't particularly pleasant either.

Guinea apartments are basic but are very clean and very central to the beach and strip and not a far walk to the yumbo center. Stayed from 25-6 to 2-7 and cleaners were around everyday except Sunday which we didn't mind. Wouldn't recommend these apartments for someone who isn't a party animal as they are suited to younger people. The 2nd day we were there electricity went out in the whole street and surrounding apartments. Few hours later was sorted but this was not Guinea apartments fault. Not a lot of hot water but Playa del Ingles is so warm a cold shower is heaven! I would def stay again if I was to go to Playa del Ingles!The man on reception, Hector was very helpful!
