Ifa Catarina is a lovely, clean and quiet hotel. I went there 4th time in last 3 years and was always happy with service. What probably needs promoting is that the hotel also offers a nudist solarium/roof terrace, where hotel guests can enjoy wonderful views of Gran Canaria dunes and Atlantic Ocean.

The hotel offers excellent food, especially evening/dinner time. Gardens at Ifa Catarina are also well maintained and very green. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean; all rooms are with the air-con.

The hotel is located in a very convenient location, (probably easiest and shortest route to dunes/beach). Also convenient for shopping as there is a nearby shopping centre with few supermarkets. The same shopping centre (CITA) includes numerous bars and restaurants and few Drag Queen show bars.

The IFA Catarina Hotel is in an ideal location. A gentle walk to the Maspalomas dunes. A short walk to the CITA Centre. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food at all meal times was varied and delicious. The pool area was kept spotlessly clean - only criticism was the amount of smokers around the main pool bar area. The roof top sun terrace was an oasis of peace. Would recommend the fish pedicure.

This was our second stay at IFA Caterina and was just as good as our first one was. Our room was very clean and a good size with air conditioning and a great balcony overlooking the pool and gardens with a view of the sand dunes and the sea. We had a fridge and a safe. The beds were a little hard for us so reception arranged for mattress toppers and the staff secured the two single beds together to make one very large double.

The staff were friendly and most spoke very good English. The food was a good variety each day and you could eat all you wanted, large or small portions. It was my Husbands birthday while we were there and on our return to our room there was a complimentary bottle of bubbly on ice with a congratulations card. You could hire large pool towels and there was entertainment at the hotel.

The Caterina is a very short walk away from a good bus service to the beaches and the towns. The Cita centre is very close too with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. The Yumbo centre is within walking distance, again with much shopping, entertainment and restaurants. We met some great people staying at the hotel, which we also did the last time. The people we became friends with on our first visit arranged to come back at the same time as they enjoyed their first stay there last year too. The weather was fabulous as always. All in all another really lovely experience.

Nice hotel, good bedrooms, air conditioning worked ok if you kept it going 24/7.
Big issue with the choice sunshine website gives you when booking, it doesn't tell you the room you have booked can only be a room on the second floor facing the street. Had to pay 220 euro to upgrade to pool view on fourth floor otherwise we would have been eaten alive. Pool area much too small for the number of guests, we are not sunbed people but god help those who were. Something I can't get my head around how in 2015 with the availability of combi steam ovens they manage to get veal so tough you could sole your boots with it and the same goes for all the other meat. Breakfast is fine with the exceptions of the chefs attitude towards the frying of eggs, if you don't like them soft you get the look and the rest. Soup is very good, salads good, dessert fine but cheese board choice not good. When busy you have to queue for a table if you like sitting outside, coming from uk it's a must for us, we sit indoors long enough at home.
Location very good, very close to beach if you like a walk in the dunes. We normally stay in another hotel close by, have to say it is much better.

Definitely not a 4 star hotel. It was our honeymoon, didn't even give a bottle of bubbly or flowers and they were advised of this prior to arrival. The room was extremely basic and on the bottom floor facing the road with a grassed area outside enclosed by a wall. The beds were old and needed renewing badly. Nothing really gave this a 4 star impression. The hallways were showing damp and the walls needing repairs, the carpet was filthy in places. The dining area was set up badly, people had to cross each other whether they were getting food, going or leaving. The pool and the area surrounding is simply not big enough to cater for the size of the hotel, absolutely huge. It takes nearly 5 minutes, outside, to walk from top to bottom that gives you an idea of how big it is.

Lovely hotel - very clean, with a good selection of well-cooked food, which was well presented. The gardens and grounds were excellent, and there were some quiet places to sit and sunbathe away from the mostly noisy swimming pool/disco area.
Bottled water was free, but this was not explained on arrival, which would have been helpful. The all-inclusive deal was excellent.

Bottom line - clean hotel, polite staff, spacious rooms, good entertainment and facilities.
The food was very good - diverse, tasty and could satisfy kids and adults. The pool was very nice, there are several pools for the kids and also entertainment for the kids and adults. The kids club in the evening is superb.
The location is fantastic - 5 minute walk from the dunes and you can get to the ocean by a longer walk or taking a free bus from/to the hotel. There are several supermarkets in the area which very reasonable prices. The only thing that could be better is the safe in your room - you need to hire it, otherwise I would highly recommend especially for families.
