“value for money”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

i got to say, for 1 star it wasnt bad at all. very clean. although the rooms where smaller than we expected especially the living room.
Overall me and my husband and friends really enjoyed our stay at the parquemar. would def go back. we had bunglow number 1. near to the road, was a bit annoying in the morning, but it got me out of bed which is a gd thing.lol. got plenty of sun.if any1 needs a indian curry then make sure you go to dianna's tandoori in playa del inglis. the best.

Room Tip: bunglow number 1. very peaceful and private as it is an end bunglow

From the pictures we were shown when we booked our stay at Parquemar we were lead to believe that we would be staying in an apartment with 2 floors, however when we arrived we were told we were on the top floor of a block of small hotel rooms over looking the accomadation we had previously thought we would be staying in.
As if the confusion was not bad enough we were not even shown to our rooms just given a key!
The room had no air con and we later found that all that was on offer was a small fan which you had to pay to hire out!
The cooking area was so small you could do little more than make toast without getting in a mess.
And the beds from what I could make out looked like 2 Children's beds with just 1 pillow. Which is not what you expect when you book to go away as a couple.
Also the situation of the hotel is NOT great as it was on a main road so EVERY morning around 6AM we were woken by buses taking people to and from airports or dustbin lorries which ledt us feeling tired and drained most days we had to have afternoon naps just so we felt awake enough to go out in the evenings!
The staff were also not very helpful as the did not speak alot of english some of them none at all so getting problems across like how our toilet didnt flush was quite difficult.
I would not stay here again and i deffinitely would NOt reccommend it to anyone else either!
The ONLY good point was that it was close to a bus stop and had a lovely restuarant downstairs called RIMMIS.

A group of 4 friends stayed here 11-16th July 12, we had a great time. The bungalows are very spacious, 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms as well as your own garden with table and sunbeds. Staff were very helpful. Pool was a great size. Room cleaned and towels changed twice in the 6 days we were there.

Would def recommend it & would stay again.

Parquemar was amazing, the staff were friendly. 16th june to 23rd June, It wasn't too busy. Shop next door had a gorgeous spanish beauty in there! who i couldn't communicate with tho the receptionist told me how to say 'your beautiful'. At first we went to Yumbo which was a gay area. I recommend you go on the 'F**k me im Famous' pub crawl run by a guy called Carmello which costs 25 euros we paid 20, a nice way of meeting people and you go to about 5 different clubs or bars. I might of aswell been a promoter there any pole or stage in kasbah I was on it and got others on there. Loved it that much that I am going back in end of August. If you would like to see any pics message me and you can see them on facebook. Both Yumbo and Kasbah are walking distance 10-15 mins taxi's seem to make you think it’s a long way away. The cleaners refused to clean our room don't blame them four guys sharing can make a mess with bottles beer cans and food.

Room Tip: Bungalow with two bathrooms

We stayed here from 14th June- 21st June 2012. We were given one of the apartments, not a bungalow. We were very pleased with the size and cleanliness of the room. Which consisted of two beds, a lounge, small kitchen are and balcony, as well as bathroom. The whole complex was well maintained and clean. The pool was lovely and we never had a problem getting a sun lounger. We had a cleaner everyday except sunday, who was very thorough.

The locaton as 10 miutes or so from the beach. A 5 minute walk to either the Kasbah or Yumbo centres. Dont be fooled and get a taxi, its not far at all. There is also a supermarket next door and a minute walk either to the left or right there are smaller shopping centres with bars andplaces to eat.

Overall an exellent stay and highly reccomend this place!

Room Tip: The apartmentface the street so its noisier at night. Go for a bungalow if you want it quieter.

We have stayed in some of the most expensive and most basic places in Playa but this hotel has to be best value for money ever, a proper hidden gem.
From the reception to the pool to the bungalow itself the whole place was spotless and in excellent condition. Our bungalow was immaculately presented with everything we needed for a relaxing week. We are two mates going on holiday together and the bungalow gave us plenty of space so we could enjoy our time. Only down side for us was that there was not one English speaking TV channel but it did seem that most guests were German or Dutch, but who watches TV on their hols!
Its close to the Grand Chapperal where you can get bargain food and close to the Yumbo where you can have the best night out!
We are already planning to go back in September!!

Room Tip: If you want a lie in avoid the bungalows near the kids pool!

Had a great holiday. Been to Playa Del Ingles before but it was the first time staying at Parquemar as it was recommended to us and it was great. We opted for a 2 bedroom bungalow and was amazed at how spacious it was. We had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, living/dining room, kitchen, balcony, patio and a large garden to ourselves. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were worried about having to vacate our bungalow at 12 noon but we were able to pay a little extra to keep the room until 6pm. The weather wasn't go hot but just right. It was averaging between 23-26 degrees most days except for Friday as it reached 29 but still came back with a good tan. The complex is close to everything, nightlife, shopping centres and the beach is only a 10 minute walk away. Overall we had a fantastic time and hope to go back in the next few months.
