Gran Canaria is famous for its volcanic beaches, and sun-soaked Playa Del Ingles is among the best known. Travelers come here to sun themselves by day and party throughout the night. Handily positioned near the sands of Dunas Las Palomas, the larger-than-life Suite Hotel Playa del Ingles has just emerged from a head-to-toe refurbishment, offering gleaming new facilities and marvelous sea views.
Up on the chill-out rooftop terrace and solarium, you can bubble away in one of the outdoor Jacuzzis or sunbathe with panoramic bird’s-eye views of sand and sea through glass panels. If you’re seeking an all-over tan, there’s even an area reserved for nudists. Back down on ground level, you’ll find an equally inviting swimming pool, as well as a new spa, where you can treat yourself to a massage for a reasonable extra charge.
Elsewhere, the restaurant prides itself on beautifully presented buffet fare with plenty of international choices, so when you’re staying full-board or all-inclusive, you won’t have to worry about finding something to suit everyone. Mingle with fellow guests in the evenings while listening to live music, or dance the night away in the hotel disco.
How to Get There
We arrived on a late flight in for a 7 night all inclusive stay, reception was efficient and quickly took details and gave us key.
Only downfall is we missed the evening dinner service however they told us we could get something cold from the restaurant instead.
No offer of free champagne or orange juice this time as we stayed here last year too and got that on arrival, I think they just forgot.
We stayed in a double room number 518A, it was spotlessly clean, and there was a bottle of water and a bottle of red wine waiting in there for us.
House keeping was good changing towels and cleaning whenever it was needed.
A quick phone call to reception and they brought us an iron and a ironing board within minutes.
The buffet style restaurant and hot grill section was amazing the food was always replenished and there was never a time we didn’t find anything we liked.
They come and take drinks orders quickly with these coming whilst you eat.
It was sometimes busy but it depends what time you get there. The waiting staff were all great and the manager always greeted us when we arrived.
A couple of nights there was Spanish music and singing whilst we were in there it feels like they serenade you.
The bar staff are all very friendly and yes there is sometimes a wait if they are busy but this is mainly more the evenings.
Couldn’t really comment as most nights we went to the Yumbo to see the shows. Bingo seemed busy though one night when we got drinks in the bar.
Pools / Jacuzzis
These were great, can definitely recommend the top floor and if you feel like it the secluded naturist area.
Didn’t use this so can’t really comment
It’s our second stay here and we’ll definitely come back.
From the moment we entered this hotel we were made to feel welcome. Very quick check in by a lovely young man, very happy & smiling. He then made us smile even more by telling us we had been upgraded to a suite - what a lovely anniversary surprise. The suite was very spacious and spotless. We had two balconies which were also very spacious. Bedroom was big with lots of storage space in the huge wardrobes and even another wardrobe in the lounge area. Bathroom lovely and clean. There are 2 pools, we preferred the one near the restaurant. Pool side bar with mostly friendly staff, the older guy that served there never really smiled or said much, they could do with more than one person serving especially at lunchtime time when they are expected to serve drinks and cook food. Great food in the restaurant at all times and an area where food was cooked freshly for you, plenty of outside seating also. Entertainment at night was hit and miss, in my opinion more miss than hit, again only one person serving drinks. Rooftop bar with a brilliant view. Great location, not far to walk to the beach, you can take a few different routes to the beach but mostly there are steps. We ordered a picnic for one of our trips out which was basic but good. Just two negative things about our room- the air con in our bedroom didn’t work so we reported it and it was attended to straight away, but by the time we returned to our room later that evening it had stopped working again but to be honest it didn’t bother us as we kept the balcony door open at night, secondly the shower leaked always causing the bathroom floor to have a huge puddle after every shower, again it was repaired very quickly but again the repair didn’t last long. All in all a fantastic holiday and I would definitely return to this fantastic hotel.
We have just got back from a weeks stay in this fabulous hotel. We were there to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I can't fault the hotel, staff are very friendly, hotel spotless and the food was delicious.
The restaurant is lovely with several outdoor dining areas. There were lots of delicious choices on both the hot and cold buffets plus a chef cooking steaks and fish to order. Lots of friendly staff each running their own section of tables efficiently. Never had to wait long for drinks service. On the evening of our 25th Anniversary we were serenaded by a Spanish duo and given a lovely bottle of cava.
The swimming pools are surrounded by plenty of sun loungers, always beds available throughout the day. If we ever go back to Gran Canaria then I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
