"Fantastic hotel, friendly staff, great facilities!"
From the lovely welcome bubbles to the friendly farewell, everything else in between was just wonderful. The breakfast in the 8th floor 360 degree cafe just has to be experienced. The evening meals in the same location with a cheeky little aperitif on the terrace beforehand provide some of the most stunning vistas and then comes the food itself. The head chef was apparently trained by the great Ferran Adria and the 6 course tasting menu really is worth a Michelin Star. The facilities, especially the Spa were first class and the even the gym is worth a visit :) Suffice to say that we will be back!!

From our very first arrival at your hotel, myself, husband and son truly had a wonderful experience. We could not fault a thing. Made to feel so welcome by your friendly staff, rooms spotlessly clean and the tastiest food to cater for every palate. The beach, was well within walking distance with plenty to see and do. Definitely our 2015 Gran Canaria holiday staying at Hotel Riu Palmeras will always be remembered! A tear in my eye was when I left to go home.
I found the apartments to be right where I wanted, 1 minute walk to the Kasbah Centre, 12 minute walk to the Yumbo Centre, both centres offering all kinds of entertainment and shopping. The apartment is also a 3 minute walk to the glorious Playa del Ingles beach and all it offers. The accommodation is basic, but very very clean, the room was serviced daily and the housekeeping staff carry out their daily tasks with a smile and with ease, the lady even washed my breakfast dishes as soon as I had finished eating, with a lovely smile and pleasant chat. The reception staff were very pleasant, always smiling and willing to assist, even non-residents were greeted with a smile and helped on their way with clear printed instructions on how to find locations when lost, no matter what time of day or night.
On the whole, a nice hotel. Very clean, and a great location a stone's throw from the Playa del Ingles and local bus links, and with convenient stores and restaurants nearby. The rooftop terrace was a nice bonus, and the breakfast buffet good, though I would have preferred fresh juice, and the machine-dispensed coffee was a little disappointing. The bathroom was a decent size, but the shower curtain woefully inadequate, leading to a drenched bathroom floor. They need to install a proper shower screen in the bathrooms. The balcony was great, with a convenient clothes horse, and nice views. The big let down was the bed, which was not very comfortable and left me with a sore back each morning. I would say replacement of the mattresses with something firmer should be the top priority for this hotel. However, I would recommend the hotel to friends and family as it ticked the majority of boxes for me.
This was the second time at this hotel,first time last year when it was Riu,some of the reviews on trip adviser were a little negative about the change over,but we saw no difference,it was just as good this time as it was the first.

We really loved it as parking was good safety walking distance for local nights out and quiet evening in .. Pool a little dated but clean and swimming was good. Great location every traveler must really go round island Caria a must. Staff were lovely only shame 6 am wake up with sprinkler and the obsessive sweeper next door. I would stay hear again . Not for kids unless over 12 and can swim. It is a 2 star but it was clean and comfortable had all we needed topless sun bathing happens again why no kids owner is a lovely guy and very helpful cleaner again very meticulous
Pocket Guide: Gran Canaria Playa del Ingles Hotels
Playa del Inglés (literally “Beach of the English”) is Gran Canaria’s busiest tourist resort. Despite the name, its superb long golden sands are popular with many north European nationalities. There is no single focus to this man-made resort; instead it clusters around 11 shopping centres. The island and Playa del Inglés in particular, is a magnet for gay holidaymakers; its heady nightlife ranges from drag cabaret to sleek upmarket clubs.
