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.

Yestarday I back from holidays. In Gran Canaria was second time. Yes I like it. But Ifa Continental hotel Im disappointment. In rooms are not air condition. No mini-refrigerator. Sun beds ofent collapse. It was not good to lie on it. I had all inclusive so drinks and cokteils was need to play. Ice cream need pay to. After 11pm Cola was need to pay full price. They dont care if you are all inclusive. By the pool was slipe. Lunch and Dinner to much for choise and cold food. Hotel saff and animation team was friendly. Only was good just for realax nothing else. This is my first hotel where Im disappointment. 4 years ago also I was in Gran Canria was staying in Ifa Bueventura it was 100 time better. More

2nd class citizen
WHY WHY WHY drop everyone off and pick up at roundabout where you then have to proceed up a slight hill to get to entrance of this hotel when there is plenty of room for coaches to drop you/pick you up at the door? (On our way to this Hotel from airport seen coaches struggle into more of tight squeeze) OH forgot maybe its because they close it off as charge 5 euro a day to park in the carpark. No regards for their customers who could be disabled or for people with young children struggling with cases buggies and kids tow Hotel entrance is lovely could be better if had a easier access for luggage and buggies as the one they have is very steep when you are partially blind and trying to manoeuvre cases it is very difficult Rooms outdated but clean house keeping staff BRILLIANT more than can be said for reception or bar staff they could take a leaf out of housekeeping staff book. I have never felt like a 2nd class citizen than I did at this Hotel, because we were all inclusive. If you spend your hard earned money at this Hotel for all the extras they fall over you, the way I look at it I have already spent my money to have a fab holiday NOT to pay more for extras i.e. air con,fridge,kettle HAIRDRYERS and decent drinks ( I usually can find something to drink from the local source but not at this place all disgusting ) even a smile is free but hard to find from the staff except the house keeping staff Food ok but as per usual got repetitive when there for 2 weeks but that is the norm. Also pretty disgusted about the 5 euro per hour to keep room on more way to get more money from customers Would I go back NO for the size of this company that owns this Hotel they need to seriously have a rethink about how to treat customers after all tourism is one of Spain main industry Already put my points to customer relations of this HotelMore

Very Clean Busy Location
We stayed there for 11 nights 26th September-7th October 2017.Hotel very clean,staff very friendly the food was very good.There is free Wi-Fi in the lobby.The rooms are big.There is no air conditioning or fridges in the rooms,The temperature was 33 degrees in the day and 24 degrees at night,the room we had was very noisy when you have the window open because of the amount of coaches and buses it is a very busy road.The entertainment at night was very good,but if you are a non smoker it is not very pleasant as there are a lot of vapours and cigarettes smokers it really bad for small children and babies,there should be no smoking in the area infront of the stage and use the area down the side for smoking.There are plenty of sun beds but if you want to sit in the sun all day you need to get the ones on the far end of the pool.Be careful with the sunbeds some of them callapse when you lie back on them.The management need to look and inspect these chairs especially the ones with the plastic runners there were also some with boken weld and threaded pins loose.The resort of Playa Del Ingles is a favorite with Germans with a nudist beach further down from the hotel.The beach is only 3 minutes away but there 150 steps to get down to it.Bus station only 2 minutes away,there is a kiosk at the bus station for all the information.We caught the bus to the market at Puerto De Morgan on a Friday takes about 20-35 minutes depending on traffic.we also went by bus to Puerto Rico and Las Palmas.More
Lovely hotel, lovely location!
When we arrived at the hotel we couldn't believe how big it looked. The reception area was lovely and our room was lovely too with a balcony. Found one English channel on tv but there was no air con so we had to have the balcony door open every night otherwise it would get far too hot! The pool is a lovely area,lots of spaces to get sunbeds although people do like to get there early and put towels down. We always got one whatever time we went. We went half board for 7 days so the only problem we had was there was no food at lunch time only provided food for all inclusive not even snacks for you to buy at the bar so make sure to buy snacks. The pool was always lovely and clean. The food in the restaurant was lovely good variety of fresh food and plenty! The hotel was in a great location, 2 mins from the beach front, close to shops (local shops in the hotel and a pharmacy too), restaurants and for lovely walks. Lots of tourist guides on the beach to book excursions as well! We had a fab time here and would happily come again. You could get wifi for free in the reception area or could pay 2 euros per night for wifi in your room. Hotel staff were friendly and rooms were cleaned every day.More
