Playa del Ingles’ sandy beach is only a few minutes’ walk from this place. And if you’re staying put, you’ve got pools, whirlpool baths and loads of sports to keep you busy.
The IFA Continental’s location gets brownie points – there are shops and bars on the doorstep, a sandy beach is 5 minutes’ walk away, and it’s only a few minutes’ taxi ride to the centre of Playa del Ingles.
A pair of pools takes centre-stage outside, while on the food front you’ve got a buffet place and an al fresco bar for snacks. And as for activities, stuff like football, water polo and pétanque is on the cards.

This huge pool comes with waterfalls and whirlpool baths. It's surrounded by a sun terrace decked out with sunbeds and parasols and palm trees for that bit of extra shade.
This watery number comes complete with adjoining waterfalls and whirlpool baths.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served here. Both hot and cold options are on offer with a selection of national and international dishes. Themed buffets keep things exciting, with Mexican, Italian, Asian and local specialities all making an appearance. There's a dress code here between October and May, and for men this is long trousers for evening meals.

All inclusive week away to get some winter sun in January
Nicely located within a 5 minute level walk of the coast and shops this hotel was spotlessly clean with friendly staff. The rooms were a little dated, however ours was spotless and the bed very comfortable, lack of air-con in the summer could be a problem, however in January with daytime temperatures between 23-28 degrees it was fine. The restaurant offered freshly cooked food to a high level with varied choice at all times, the restaurant was always clean and the staff polite and helpful ( the Chef's will always cook to your taste if asked ). The only drawback (probably with the resort in general) is that there are quite a lot of arrogant Germans in resort!More

Nice hotel good food pool area a bit small and shaded. Only get the sun in some parts around 11 o'clock people would get up early around 6 o'clock to get best places my only problem was some of the staff would laugh and joke about the way some people would dress which I thought was wrong the staff in the restaurant were the worst these people are not aliens and should be treated with respect has all your paying guestsMore

Superb hotel and location. Great entertainment while we were there. Hotel staff are very friendly and rooms clean and tidy. Beds are a bit hard but that's personal preference. Rooms cleaned and towels replaced daily. Great food and plentiful variety. More
I wouldn't go again.
Our bedroom was unbelievably cold despite the fact that the outside temperature was between 25 and 28 degrees celsius. It was quite difficult to get a lounger beside the pool. Dinner in the evening was in general pretty good but it was impossible to get a cup of coffee in the restaurant. I couldn't see the point of the entertainment provided - the bands played at very high volume to an almost empty auditorium. This meant that it was difficult to get to sleep before midnight.More
Great winter holiday vacation
We usually holiday in Tenerife most February but thought this year we would try Gran Canaria and so glad we did. Playa de ingles was lovely . Very clean and quiet. We stayed at this hotel which was at the quieter end of town . It is right on the promenade. We e mailed the hotel before our stay to request a high room and this was allocated at check in as she mentioned the note on the system which assured me it was very efficient. We also e mailed a week before going to check on the dress code about long pants for the evening for men and again an email straight back. The reception and poll areas are fantastic. People say about the Sun beds but you just have to check them as we had no problem all week. We swam mainly in the smaller pool which was heated but did get in the large pool. Food was excellent great variety and hot not like other buffets. The room was a little tired but very very clean. Bedding changed throughout the week and towels every day. This did not bother us as don't go on holiday to spend time in the room . No kettles but we took our own and no issues. The poolside snacks throughout the day also were very good. The downside was the evening entertainment but it's typical hotel entertainment you get all over and there are plenty of bars to walk to onthe front and the Irish corner close by. Staff are excellent friendly and polite . We have enjoyed our first stay here. Room 728 and will be back most definitely next February. Thank you to you all for our great room. Nice bottles of wine. And we will see you next yearMore
