Lovely clean place but some places looked liked they had gone down hill or closed ie some of the original bars around Kasbar, maybe we were just out of season so not everything was open.

Having visited Playa del Ingles many times over the last twenty years or so, I have noticed many changes. Sadly not all for the best. There are many shops which are now closed, especially in the CITA Centre. A sense of seediness and decline pervades through certain areas. Despite that, it will not deter me from returning again = hopefully soon.

Lively resort would recommend Fusion restaurant just across from the Yumbo Centre, great food and service in a very classy atmosphere. Walk the beach and promenade to experience the views.

The water park is always a good day out, do remember to take flip flops or even better a pair of wet slip on's. These can be purchased at the park and is a must as the ground get excruciatingly hot under bare feet! Ask the many girls you see out and about in the resort handing out flyers, you get a 3 euro discount! Not much in the way of boat trips, so if this is your thing head further west to Puerto Rico.
You'll always find many places to eat throughout the resort and always remember, you only get what you pay for! Stick to buying tobacco/cigarettes at the airport, you may find they're 1 euro - 2 euro more but they are official and not like the many knock off's you find in many of the shops. Like most major resorts in Europe you do get your fair share of pick pockets and even non violent muggings, so always take a taxi on the way home of an evening for the sake of how cheap it is. Avoid the over friendly black African women on the seafront trying to put some tat on your wrist whilst pretending to shake your hand, it's a scam and can be quite uncomfortable when trying to get out of the situation when they start demanding money. The Yumbo is a great place to shop, eat and has many clubs and bars, you can catch many shows here too and there is always a friendly atmosphere throughout much of the year. Pride/events run throughout the year, so be prepared for it to get very very busy! The sand dunes are a must see and the beach is extensive, running all the way down to Maspalomas. It does get very windy on this southern tip of the island so be careful when out swimming in the sea. There are many nudist areas so be prepared to see a lot more than you bargained for; but this is the norm here what with the many German holidaymakers, who admittedly are very friendly people.

As a seasoned traveller to Playa del Ingles. The resort is a wonderful place. There is however a problem with theft, especially with phones.

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).
