Hotel IFA Catarina

This hotel is in the heart of Playa del Ingles, offers up a great pool scene and throws in easy access to the beach.

Good location

Stayed at this hotel in Sept for 11 nights half board. Hotel is in a very quiet location but still only walking distance to most attractions. Food was excellent and always plenty of choice , I liked that for the evening meal you can go between 6.30-9.30 and are not tied to a time and a table like some hotels. Staff always helpful and friendly. Rooms are a very nice size and mine looked over the gardens and was very quiet. Well equipped rooms with small fridge, plenty of storage and air con. Gardens are immaculate, pool lovely and warm but did get busy. Mixed selection of guests but it is mainly German (not a critisicm) The only complaint I have is I found the beds very very uncomfortable, even with a matress topper on. I ended up sleeping on the sofa bed which is not ideal... But I would recommend this hotel and I am already booked to go back next year because overall I really like this hotelMore

So than all travellers if you have chance don't take this hotel because this hotel mostly think about German tourism not everyone the hotel staff not professional and even don't ask you are you happy or how I feel. Beds are so uncomfortable that I had nightmares every night so hard beds like in prison, like I sad didn't feel comfortable and welcome at this hotel. Food was quiet good but all inclusive wasn't all inclusive there was only some few drinks what you can get and all rest of them you still need to pay extra :((( really disappointed on that and never will stay there. First choice representer was quiet lazy and didn't give enought information about hotel and last day even wasn't together with us to get in bus etc. Bed service from first choice and hotel side.More

Aigars L,

Clean, Nice, Good.

Of course one can fight about the all-inclusive mentality. I personally am not an all-inclusive fan either and I find that People let themselves go when they have free Drinks from the morning time on. but except for the obligatory half naked overweight drunk sun burned all inclusive People, this Hotel is really nice. the staff is beyond friendly, it's clean, the Food is good. it's sad that they offer fruit from cans at breakfast instead of fresh fruit but i guess fresh local fruits it's a cost factor not many People appreciate enough. i had my own activities planned out and the Location of ifa catarina is a good central starting Point to get wherever. a massive compliment to francois and josé-luis, the Animation Entertainers who really are outstandingly funny and friendly :) anytime again! thanks for an outstanding vacationMore
