Good middle class hotel - close to the beach

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: The service at the reception - quality of room
Cons: Yes more matrasses for the sunbeds.
Location: Easy access to the local beach.
I booked the Continental in order to have a good middle class hotel in Playa del Ingles - and all in all I managed to get this. The hotel is a bit outside Playa del Ingles - so if you plan to go regularly to the Yumbo center in the evening - you have to walk 20 minutes one direction. To the Dunes in Maspalomas it is really far - so there I recommend to take a taxi. I was lucky and had a very nice receptionist when checking in - he gave me a room on the 6th floor with view to the sea. Lovely. It was also quieter as if you stay on the lower floors. Breakfast/dinner for a 3 star hotel is "ok" - the pool/animation is also ok - but do not expect anything "fancy" - you will not find it. The matrasses at the pool were quickly gone so you sometimes had to lie only on towels on the sunbeds (not comfortable). So all in all I can recommend the hotel if you do not have too high expecations.

Enjoyed the hotel very much. The food was excellent. The only problem was the wifi that didn't work in the rooms even thought eh had to pay for it.

Will definitely return

Posted 24-Oct-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: I cannot fault this hotel- although in the height of Summer the rooms might get hot without airconditioning- but that is why I went in October!
Location: Beach and promenade are just around the corner with lots of restaurants from which to choose. Local shopping is great and the bus terminal is close by
I chose this hotel based on previous visitor reviews and I am glad that I did. The hotel itself is lovely but even more important is the fact that all the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast catered for all tastes and the hotel is well situated for local shops and the coast promenade is just around the corner. The maid service runs like clockwork and the room was clean and comfortable. I had a wonderful stay and shall without doubt be returning to this hotel.

Net hotel dicht bij het strand

Posted 22-Sep-2014
Pros: reeds vermeld
Cons: reeds vermeld
Location: de mogelijkheid dat je op de boulevart opgelicht wordt door ANFI
Ouder hotel maar zeer netjes, bijzonder goed eten, keurig en goed personeel, mooie ligging, nadeel is geen airco, smerige winkeltjes in het hotel, betaal tv, betaal kluisje, betaal wifi ook in de lobby zelf. Maar in z'n geheel een goede prijs kwaliteit verhouding.

Excellent and I will recommend

Posted 04-Dec-2013
Pros: The peace and quiet ; staff too
Cons: The carpets needs updating
Location: shopping, walks and the views
I went on holiday with my wife and baby daughter ; we had a good time in the IFA continental . The staff were great and willing to help always with different things ; be it directions , where to eat ; you name it. The guest were a lot older which to us was a good advantage , chilled out and quiet .

Bon Hotel, proche des plages et des animations .

Posted 20-Oct-2013
Pros: Personnel trés gentil, piscines agréables .
Cons: le restaurant: trop de monde et trop de bruits . Mettre la climatisation dans les chambres, car il fait chaud , méme en octobre
Location: Plage à 2 rues de l’hôtel . nombreux petits magasins à proximité.
Nous avons passé , mon mari et moi une très bonne semaine au soleil dans cet hôtel proche des plages et des centres commerciaux , avec un personnel très sympa, des buffets corrects ( fruits et légumes au menu) et une bonne literie pour passer des nuits reposantes.

Decent location in Playa del Ingles

Posted 13-Jun-2013 on Hotels
The IFA Continental was a good, but not great, hotel - I found that I used it only as a place to sleep (and occasionally sunbathe) and found it to be appropriate for a budget quick holiday of only a few days.
