Seaside Hotel Sandy Beach

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.

Just a great hotel!

Our third time back and just as great. Having already reviewed this place twice before, there's not much else I can add to what I have already written about them in the past. Everything is just great, went a week later than previous visits and the weather was fantastic. Lovely room on the 10th floor, service and food the usual excellent. Great base for the golfing holiday. Staff excellent, friendly and helpful in particular Raquel who remembered us from last year. The evening restaurant staff are brilliant!More

Great food and naturist terraces

So many good things. Great staff all round - barman at pool bar in evenings was amazing. Everywhere always spotless. Good location, only a few minutes from beach, and shopping areas, including Yumbo, but be aware that it is in a hilly area, so there are steep slopes and steps everywhere around. Free wifi over the whole hotel, adequate speed, and few drop outs. Great restaurant - hard to avoid overeating, with so many nice choices on offer. Good choice of meat/fish casseroles, pasta and sauces, roast meats carved to order, fish and meats grilled to order, alongside a salad bar with big choice. Don't miss the fresh olives. Cereals, meat and cheese, or cooked breakfast, always with fresh fruit juices for breakfast - eggs to order. Tables are cleared, and drinks delivered efficiently. Bonus brownie points for the waitress who brought a finger bowl when my partner was shelling prawns - without being asked! The pool is quite small, but it was never crowded. Temperature was just right, not to warm, but walk in without a sharp intake of breath. Love the Jaccuzi corner. Sun terraces had enough space between beds, so they can be moved to follow the sun. Pool attendants will bring matresses within minutes of arrival. Even at busy times there were beds available. Rooftop naked sunbathing facilities are excellent - plenty of sun beds, plenty of space, and great views, also parasolls available. Toilet and shower too. Having a naturist area is important to me - what a pity UK travel companies seem reluctant to mention it in their promotions. We only saw a few of the shows - The acrobats were best entertainment, despite being restricted by low ceiling indoors. They were fun, engaged the audience, and put on a good show. "Elvis" also very entertaining. He does not claim to "be" Elvis, just does an Elvis show well. The Three Tennor act were good singers, but the show did not quite gell. Maybe better on other occaisions. Our room was on floor 3, just above the restaurant. I thought this might be a problem, but we were never disturbed. Morning and evening times there was some noise of plate rattling, but no more than that. Rooms with low numbers do not get much sun until late in the day, rooms with higher numbers get morning sun, but are in shade in the evening. We had a problem with the TV on arrival, but this was fixed right away. After all the good news? Only minor negatives: The balconies overlooking the pool are not a private as some might like, and those at either ends of the corridor are pretty open to the outside stairs. I would have liked a small selection of cold meats available at lunch times. The magnetic strip card keys can fail - in our case we were unable to get in through the lower back entrance, leaving us a long climb to reception on floor 4. The acid test - would I go back? Definately. I am already looking ad Seaside Hotels offering in Lanzarote for next year, based on this experience.More

Solid hotel. Pleasant staff & good food

We arrived during Gay Pride. Our taxi driver could not get close to the hotel, so we had to drag our luggage through over a thousand wiggling bums and men in revealing swimwear blowing whistles. I wished to stay - for cultural reasons, obviously - but my wife was not so keen. Apparently gentlemen of my age should not be frequenting company with scantily clad, deliciously tanned, seam bulging gym bunnies from Spain. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly. Luggage was taken from us and we arrived at our room on our floor. The room was wonderful, although a short walk from the lifts. We had a sea view as requested and the room standards and fittings were of high quality. This hotel is smaller than its sister hotel in Lanzarote, but enjoys the same standards. Housekeeping standards in the public areas and rooms are very high. Beds were wonderful and linen of good quality. The food is good and varied. I cannot help thinking it gets a bit bland after 4 or more days, but this is my personal preference. I found a wonderful Indian restaurant nearby to get my spice fix. They run Theme Evenings like Chinese and Italian, but you would be hard pressed to see the difference. You will not go hungry here, and the food is edible, but a gourmet break this is not. Each meal involves a lot of walking up and down for each course - there is no waiter service, except for drinks. This is generally fine when the place is not busy, but can get tiring after a few days. Spa and Massage place is small but very well run and presented. Two of the treatment rooms overlook the nudist sunbathing area which gave me quite a shock when I opened my eyes.I intend to return soon. Despite the name, there is no beach - sandy or otherwise - at this hotel. There is a very nice pool, but the beach is a 4 min walk away. Also nearby is the Yumbo Centre, which is a multilevel shopping emporium of things you might see at a car boot sale. The hotel is situated very near the beach on a high traffic tourist street. It means everything is close by, but also comes with traffic and people noise depending on where your room is. The area is built up significantly and your view from your room may be towards other people's balconies in other buildings. All in all, a very nice hotel with wonderful staff, good rooms and good food in a great location. If you seek complete luxury this is not the place for you, but for a week away with friends and family, this place has a lot to offer.More

Still Excellant

Second time to this hotel and still no faults found. All the brochures and the hotel Web page give all the details of the amenities, rooms and services provided. See my previous blog for this hotel. This year they have moved the pool bar over which is a great success and allows for more interaction of the guests. The food is of a very high standard, yes you may find somethings Not your to your liking but please do not moan about it, see the staff straight away and they will sort it out lmmediately. The staff are second to none. Nothing is to much trouble for them and they always smile. The guests are mainly European and with the layout of the diningroom areas and bar the atmosphere is very jovial all around Entertainment every evening, above average, starts from around 8.30pm. The drinks for AI are very acceptable with many local branded names (try the baileys). The position of the hotel is great. Get a street map and you will find almost everything within walking distance. Anything I can help you with just ask.More

Perfect hotel!

What a fabulous hotel, most helpful and friendly staff, great location and fantastic food. Would definitely return to this hotel. 5 minute walk to the beach, 2 pools (one for kids) and plenty of sunbeds, we were given a token for a towel to use on the sunbeds all week which was a nice bonus. We stayed all-inclusive which worked out perfectly for us, as we wanted a lazy week of sunshine, good food, and relaxation. The Yumbo Centre is great for shopping and again only 5 minute walk away, lots of tourist souvenir shops but also some nice clothes and jewellery shops for you ladies as well as some nice stalls by the beach. Plenty of bars only a 5 minute walk away from the hotel as well as a few small clubs and of course Pacha. Nice big room with fabulous power shower over the bath, and even a little separate dressing room for your clothes and cases. Beds were comfortable but firm, but that suited us. Entertainment at night was ok, what you would expect.More
