This newly refurbished hotel has a huge pool and is just a few minutes’ walk from the beach and Playa del Ingles town centre.
This hotel has just had a complete do-over. Formerly called the Riu Waikiki, the refurbishment has given it a fresh new look and feel. It’s just a five-minute walk from the heart of Playa del Ingles and the beach is only ten minutes away on foot – even less if you take the free shuttle bus.
Rooms are spread out across 5 circular towers, arranged in a horseshoe shape around a large central swimming pool. All of them come with their own balcony or terrace.

Firstly the work at the next door hotel has been completed. No noise anymore. The hotel itself is lovely, rooms are really nice and spotlessly clean. Staff are mostly very pleasant. Now for the negative points......the food is ok but not what we would choose to eat on holiday. Very repetitive. We chose to eat out most nights. The drinks are not great either, spirits non recognisable and beer not nice so only drank soft drinks at the pool and again went out to drink. The location is a little further out than I expected but that's my own fault as I should have researched this better before booking. We took taxi's into Maspalomas to eat and thought it was a much nicer resort. Overall we have had a nice week but wouldn't return to this hotel again.More
Had a great 2 weeks here with the girlfriend. Room was clean and modern looking over the pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots of drinks available from the pool bar. Activities going on throughout the day. Aqua gym is good fun. Large pool with plenty of sun loungers. Adult section was nice if you wanted more of a relaxing time. Free shuttle bus down to the beach was useful but was only a 10 min walk anyway. Lots of choice for food for myself but my girlfriend who is a vegetarian was a little restricted. Very few dishes labeled so she wasn't sure if they were meat free and didn't want to risk it. Free wifi everywhere but doesn't really work in popular areas such as the pool bar or around the main pool. The two single beds pushed together to make a double were not nice. They need to get actual double beds in. The building work next door was quite loud for the first week if you were next to the main pool. Luckily they finished towards the end of the holiday so was much better. Good location close to the beach and shops/ bars/ restaurants. Overall we both enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel.More
Stayed here for 2 weeks with my girlfriend, clean rooms, up to date and modernised. Staff are very friendly, and always there to help if needed. People complaining about the pool, it's not that bad, if anything it's refreshing as it cools you down. Entertainment team there were fantastic and always have a laugh and get on well with you. Would definitely recommened this hotel for anyone visiting Gran Canaria. More
Spent a week here on a friends holiday and it's such a nice hotel. Rooms were clean and bright, reception area was nice with a drinks area too. Self service at the bar for soft drinks/wine which was good. We came all inclusive too and the cocktails were nice. Food was a little repetitive and not much choice if you aren't a big meat/fish eater but had plenty of pasta/pizza/chips/etc. Has a lot of activities to do too so there's always something on! The gym was nice although small so couldn't really go when a lot of people were in. There was building work next door however it wasn't too loud during the day and it has been finished now. Only a 10 minute walk from the beach and plenty of supermarkets roundabout. Would definitely recommend this hotel! More

We have just come home to dreary wet England and miss this hotel and Playa del ingles the hotel is lovely and clean the pool could be a bit warmer but no complaints we were looked after very well felt welcomed by everyone. The food is lovely if you like Spanish food but my partner and I weren't a massive fan of the cooked breakfast. Food is a bit repetitive and does become boring quickly but overall we would return to this hotel. The building work is nearly finished and we didn't really notice it as there was lots music and lots going on to drowned out the noise. 10/10 for cleanliness and activities.More
