As the name suggests, this place is right by the beach. It’s also got a rather stylish pool.
This chic hotel is 2-minutes' from the beach and the centre of Playa del Ingles. There’s a first-rate buffet restaurant, 3 bars and all sorts of sports, from scuba diving to tennis.
The main pool is heated so it’s good for year-round swimming. And 6 nights a week, live entertainment is put on including dancing, cabaret and live shows.

My family of 2 Adults and 2 Children (8 and 9) have been coming here for the last 7 years, and we have loved every visit. This was the first time we have arrived in August as we normally arrive the 1st week in July, and there was a big difference in terms of there being more English and it being very busy. Even though the majority of holiday makers are German/Spanish when we have arrived this has never bothered us and found that our kids have grown up together and became good friends and this time was no exception. So here goes Reception Booking Inn was fast as always and we were greeted with a Cool Drink Family Room Nice big room for all four of us consisted of 2 beds as you walk in to the room and 2 beds in a separate room with a Shower and a Bath, Lovely clean room towels changed every day if required and beds made. 2 TV's with English and Foreign channels, kids mainly watch Sky Movies. Air con was free and we kept it on all day due to the temp being 30+ Sun Beds Like i said we have been coming here for 7 years and we have laughed at the sites as we always needed beds by the Childrens pool for our kids, so i was up for 8am every year. This year was great even though my kids are 8 and 9 they are now good swimmers so we decided to get beds up on the next level and when i slept in and woke up a 08:40 i thought i would struggle for beds but this was not the case. I walked out and found 2 beds straight away. The good thing the the hotel does now is it puts down towels around the pool and reserves them for Disabled people and Families with small children, all you need to do is ask the attendant. Not sure how the previous Lady who reviewed said she could only get a bed once as we had beds every day, the only difference with me is that we only got 2 or 3 beds between us all as the kids were in the pool most of the time. I like that this hotel sticks to its times as I have stayed all inclusive in many hotels going 2-3 times a year sometimes and have struggled more when they let you place a towel down 6am onwards, with some people leaving them from the night before. Bar Staff You cant fault these people and there hard work that they put in everyday. Polite, Friendly, Helpful and always with a smile, again i have known most of them for years and always greet my family on every visit. Restaurant What can i say if you are not worried about your weight the carry on, but if you are then maybe go on a diet for a few months before you go here as the food is fantastic. From breakfast to Lunch to your Evening meal there is loads to Choose from. You can sit inside or outside the restaurant. and The Head staff control everything that goes on from where you sit to what drinks you order. There is never a rush but if you want to sit out for a few hours and take your time its better to eat around 8:30pm, Also if you have a large group speak to the staff and they will try to sit you all together but it depends on how many groups arrive at the same time. Kids Entertainment My 2 daughters did most of the activities and really enjoyed them, good to see there is more staff this year. One thing which is great is all the kids have lunch together so they can make friends, but it also give you a break for a few hours to enjoy your lunch in piece. All in All you cannot fault this hotel and its staff as they do a great job, and make you want to go back each year which we have done and are going to do.More

We've just returned from our first family holiday (2 adults & 4 year old) & had a fantastic time at this hotel. Our room was spacious & clean, the staff were friendly, the food was excellent & the beach was genuinely only a 5 min walk away. The pool area was a lovely place to relax & soak up the sun & although there was a bit of a scrum to secure sun loungers as soon as the area opened, we had no problem getting two by the children's pool every day, thanks to the pool staff. We went all inclusive for the first time ever & so glad we did - the selection of food was awesome & managed to more than satisfy one picky child & one picky adult! One real bonus was the hotel accommodating our request for late check out on departure - with a 4yr old in tow we were very grateful that they were able to do this! We would definitely recommend this hotel & would return.More
Just come back after a week here and we wished we had booked 2. From start to finish the staff were exceptional, the hotel was spotless and the food was outstanding. Florida, Paco, Elizabeth and Nereda to name a few of the staff couldn't do enough for us, they were so pleasant and welcoming, we felt right at home. Entertainment varied each night, but again was enjoyable. Rooms were cleaned every day by cheerful staff. On a late arrival, our luggage was taken to our rooms for us by desk staff, and when we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised as they had left us a late night snack and drinks. Overall the staff could not do enough for us and went out of their way to keep us happy during our stay. Towels are given out for by the pool, these can be changed each day with a token, which need to be returned when you leave. We were advised to go to The Lighthouse, which was around 10 minutes in a taxi (about â¬6). There is a beautiful sea view on a promenade with lots of different restaurants and shops, we would definitely recommend a visit here. There are plenty of sunbeds but not many at the pool side. To be next to the pool you need to queue up from around 8:30am, as you are allowed to put towels down from 8:45am. However there are plenty more loungers on the terrace if you do not want to queue up for poolside beds. A brilliant holiday in a lovely hotel which we would definitely return to. More
The Seaside Sandy Beach Hotel in Gran Canaria shown in the brochures and including the online reviews on trip advisor ''in parts'â accurate. Firstly this hotel is from what I have experienced on the all inclusive front one of the cleanest and in areas the most accomadating hotels from the prospective of the staff towards the customer. The rooms are clean and the maid service brilliant and which is provided daily. There are small nicsities such as bath robes, scented candles in the bathroom amongst other accoutrements that really set the hotel in a good light. The reception staff was welcoming from the start including the immediate offer of an arrival drink. No question or request seemed to tall an order of the reception staff and they all impressed throughout. One clear example being that on the last day when requesting a secure area to leave our baggage whilst out shopping the staff went one better and let us keep the room until an hour before we left for the airport. The free wifi is a good call with two teenage Daughters in tow this really helps avoid the "I'm bored'' syndrome. The food was good with a different nationalities culinary cuisine being attempted each evening, may be a little more imagination from the Chefs on this could help? For example the Mexican night consisted of a Burrito and Chilli con carne option with the remainder of the food following the generic menu for the duration of the stay. Strongly advise those who are ''meat free'' try and use their own imagination during the three meal timings as these are very meat based. That is unless your a happy to load your plate up with the near enough same options for each meal? The breakfast was noted as probaly the best of the three served daily meals especially again if your more meat orientated than if your not. On the down side a few points that I felt left the hotel not in the same bracket as previous all inclusive hotels we have stayed in. The Hotel was at least two hundred pounds per head more than I've paid before, so when there wasn't the opportunity to snack during meals it deflated my initial impression on the service available. Between lunch and dinner a gridle service was laid on at the pool bar area that did waffles. Only issue here being that there were two gridles for everyone staying at the pool side to que up at. So as soon as this service became available so did the sun beds as I now explain. This for me was the biggest annoyance I'd experienced through out the holiday. Yes the reserving of sun beds by the self centered brigade from the moment of waking until the going down of the sun. The Hotels policy is no reserving sun beds before 0900, which I think coincided with the pool attendant laying out the pool bed mattresses? Unfortunately this timing only applied to a few of us, the same few that adhered to this timing daily more fool us! As we only had the use of the sun beds once during our stay at the hotel. Witnessing the same groups leaving their towels (provided by the Hotel) on the beds for hours at a time before using them infuriated me as you can tell by the length of this subject alone. You may say get up earlier and do the same? My view is that makes me no better than those self centered individuals already mentioned, hence adding this review. All of the inclusive hotels I've been fortunate to stay at also gave patrons a wrist band, not the Seaside sandy beach as you get a paper credit sized card to carry instead and which shows your all inclusive or not. Not a problem you might think? Well it is if you get out of the swimming pool fancy a drink but can't because you need to show your not waterproofed card. Every hotel again before staying at the Seaside sandy beach has offered the procedure of getting your own drinks during all meal timings and inbetween. Unfortunately I felt like the food already mentioned that the extra cash could of been better spent per head. This might all sound harsh? And I'm in no way complaining less the self centered types and the sun beds, but this is an honest review I'm sure will help others gain a little more in depth understanding of what bug bears annoy on little areas of a hotel service such as I bring up?For me and when compared to the cheaper all inclusive options I've experienced yes! it feels now i have had better value for money. Not to frighten anyone off from the hotel which isn't my angle,the out lying areas of the hotel have a mass of different restaurants and bars and there wasn't a meal as a family we had that we didnât enjoy. Also I felt compared to other holidays it didn't feel heavy on the wallet and where a family of four can have a meal and drinks for under sixty euros. The hotel was great in certain areas and clean as well as professional. Not staying in at the hotel each evening didn't cause us any any concern either if your questioning why go out at all? if all inclusive. Reason for me simply being there's more to explore outside the hotel than in it.More
