We enjoyed the resort. Mixture of nationalities. The Yumbo centre is worth a visit. Lots to see and do, there is a men only area. We like quizzes etc so we went to Shannigans fun pub most nights. Lots of great places to eat. We wanted to visit the water park but there is not enough public busses. One every half hour and each one was full and wouldn't let us on! We gave up after 90 minutes of waiting. There are loads of taxis but there was 5 of us so we didn't go. I would go here again.

Plenty to do. If you get fed up with the annoying PR (especially in the market area down near the beach) who constantly try to tell you what a good deal their food is and best prices and don't want to take no thank you as an answer, then spend about 3 euros whilst you're down there and jump in a taxi, go to El Duke and enjoy a fantastic meal.

Many bars restaurants shopping etc not all in the same area so if you like a nice stroll in the gorgeous sunny weather its perfect. Plenty of taxi's about if walking isn't for you, so everything is easily accessible. Just wish there were more bars with live music.

I guess it's the sand that's the problem. Constant wind and a mini-sahara on the doorstep. Fab dunes a must-visit but, be aware that there's about 5km of nudist beach so prepare yourself, so the restaurants have to be shielded, so no more sitting eating your meal looking out to sea with a warm breeze wafting over you. So much choice. For younger people there's Yumbo which is the biggest entertainment complex I've ever seen (must be 30 plus restaurants in there). For oldies like us, there's the Kasbah centre, with a large dance area and Latin American dance every night. Overall, Playa Del Ingles and Maspalomas are a bit expensive. For Canaries temperature and really cheap prices, try Tenerife.

Beaches

Playa del Ingles has a long, sandy beach and is backed by a promenade packed with bars and cafes.

The beach is wide and well serviced and you can walk for miles along the sands and into the vast Maspalomas dunes. Despite being very popular, particularly near the bars and cafes, the beach is very long so you can alway find a quiet spot and there are also sections recognised as a nudist beach and a gay beach.

Things to Do

The resort offers a good availability of water sports including jet-skis, kayaking, banana boats and scuba diving as well as many other activities from cycling and hiking tours to horse-riding and camel safaris; jeep and quad bike adventures to dolphin spotting and swimming with sea lions.

Annual events which take place at Playa del Ingles include the Easter Carnival and the fireworks which accompany the Funeral of the Sardine. In May, the Yumbo Centre is the venue for Gay Pride, comprising a week of partying with shows and parades.

Out and About

Playa del Ingles is packed with hundreds of bars, cafes and restaurants, most of which are located in large shopping centres. The main centres in the heart of the resort are the Kasbah, the Metro and the Maspalomas Plaza; for gay nightlife the Yumbo and the Cita are popular and, near the beach you have the Annexo centres and the Tropical.

Playa del Ingles is known for its lively nightclubs and comedy drag shows, which makes it particularly popular with couples and groups.

Nearby Attractions

Just outside of the resort you will find Holiday World amusement park (1km), Aqualand Water Park (4km), the wild west themed adventure park of Sioux City (10km) and the zoo and gardens at Palmitos Park (12km). There are golf courses in the neighbouring resorts of Maspalomas and Las Meloneras and excellent karting circuits at Bahia Feliz (10km).
