Apartamentos Dorotea
Ranked #40 of 135 Hotels in Playa del Ingles
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 26, 2011

Our family (2 adults and 2 children under 5) stayed a week at Apartmentos Dorotea and loved it. One double room and a twin room and space to sleep 2 singles in the living room. Kitchen is functional with two rings, toaster, percolator, kettle and microwave. Living room has a flat screen tv.

The apartments are not on a main route but are a few hundred yards from main routes and a shortcut (2 mins) from Kasbah which has a functional 'supermarket' which should cover most things. The Kasbah also has places to eat, drink, gifts. About a 10 min walk to the beach in one direction and 3 min walk to bus to airport, palmitos park, faro de maspalomas in the other direction. Yumbo centre 7-10 min walk

Taxis cheap, buses are great value and don't charge under 4. 3 people bus journey from airport cost 10 or 11 euro (Oct 2011) one way and is about 30-40 mins away.

Poolside bar was great and was operating on limited hrs because of numbers at the hotel. Robin was great, friendly and professional and the Apartments put on a Paella (free of charge! on Sunday) to guests who wished to avail of it - brilliant!

Kiddies pool available as well as a bigger pool and there is a childrens play area with swings, slide and see-saw on site.

Water can be purchased at reception and saves carrying it from the supermarket.

Room Tip: Families who wish to have easy access to the pool and childrens playground, choose a ground floor ap...

We booked the apartment for 11 nights for 4 persons. At the reception we got our magnetic cards from the apartment on the 5 floor, fortunately the building has an elevator. The apartments are very spacious with kitchen 2 separate rooms, living room, bathroom and balcony. The kitchen is well equipped like toaster, kettle, fridge,gases, plates, cutlery etc. The rooms was cleaned 5 times per week and the cleaners were very helpful and darling. The rooms has a safe for fee. In the living room is LCD television it is free. Every Sundays we were invited for a free paella to the pool. The pool is open daily from 8.00 to 20.00 and every day is cleaned. In the apartment is free wifi connection. Next to hotel is Kasbah, for 5 minutes walk is the beach and 10 minutes walk is Jumbo centrum.

Myself and 4 of my friends stayed here for one week in July and the apartments were nice and clean, but on our third day we walked into our apartment to see 2 guys 'Fixing' our tv even tho it was working perfectly. My hpone which was charging on the table next to them was gone, my friends phone was also gone and my friends wallet was missing 350 euro. The two guys denied and kept working as if nothing happened. I went down to reception to ask for their name to go to the police but he would not give me there names. They told us to file a report to the police which everyone knows is a waste of time.
I would believe management were in on this as they didn't even seem surprised, they just said it was not their responsibility, which makes me suspicious. Do not trust this place!!!

Room Tip: Don't!

We looked fwd to nice relaxing hol by the pool with pool bar and chose these aptmts as they had nicelooking pool and info said there was a bar to. Sure there was a bar but it was closed more often than not and when it was open the english woman running it was always miserable and sighing and moaning how tired she was and how stressed she was. surely people know when they run a bar that they have to give service with smiles and actually open the flippin thing every day? obviously not in this case. there must be nicer places to stay. shame as the apptmt was very nice and centeal and not to noisy
