The accommodation is basic, but then we didn't expect it to be anything more and was more than adequate for what we wanted. I found all staff to be friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff were great at their jobs and provided fresh towels when we needed them.
I must admit we didn't see a great deal of the resort and literally spent every night in the Yumbo Centre after a few bevvies in Detox Retox down the road!
We always found that we could get sunbeds what ever time of the day, even 1pm after crawling down from the apartment very hungover. We chose to sun bathe at the more "lively" pool because its nice to have some back ground choons and what better way to get over a hangover than to carrying on drinking and having a dash of H's "happiness in a glass" in your beer.
We met some fantastic people at the Barbados, in fact we are still in very good contact with 2 guys from Dublin and had some wicked weekends both in Dublin and London since.
Overall the holiday must be the best one i've had so far and I can't wait to get booked up for April (my birthday).

As the week went on, we got used to the place and had no other problems with the room. It was very basic (if you want 5 star luxury avoid this place at all costs!) but had what we needed for the week so we just made the best of it. The complex was OK, there were 2 pool area's and we quickly realised the quieter pool away from the pool bar was better for us. The behaviour of some of the other English guests around the pool bar quite frankly made me ashamed to be British.
That said, the quiet pool was wonderful and relaxing, it was cleaned thoroughly every morning, and there was never a fight for sunbeds. It got a little busier at the weekend when the locals arrived for their weekend siesta, but the children loved it, they gained some Spanish playmates who were very friendly and welcoming to them, much nicer than the English holidaymakers!
The location of the apartments really was the saving grace, but that still wouldn't be reason enough for us to return. The dirty loo on the first night just put me off.

The apartments are in great need of upgrading and look very old and tired.
We were situated right above the British Bull Dog and the noise was unbelievable.Ever heard the saying you only get what your paid for? They are however ideally situated to the Yumbo and very central with a 2 minute walk.
The pool was absolutely freezing also.

All the staff were very helpful and friendly. However, it's the location that wins in my book. It's a short walk to the Yumbo centre where everything happens !!. More bars & restaurants than we could cope with. We ended up going there every night !!. I'd read stories about the gay scene and with two daughters in tow, was a bit concerned, but it's all very low key.
All in all, highly recommended.

The room was very spacious with two bedrooms, a decent sized bathroom with walk-in shower, a very well equipped kitchen - this contained a 4 ring hob, toaster, microwave, fridge/freezer and plenty of cupboard space, and a basic but comfortable living room and balcony.
The apartments have it's own restaurant downstairs, aswell as 2 swimming pools, a cash machine and internet access in the reception area and a gym.
The location of the hotel was spot on.
It was just above a number of small bars, shops that sell everything you will need. It is a 2 minute walk from the spar. There is banks, pubs, clubs, shopping centres and lots of restaurants all within a 5 minute walking distance.
The staff were helpful and friendly and the maids did a great job.
Will definately come back here and would recommend it to anybody in an instant.

space. The kitchen was equipped with 4 ring hob, toaster,
kettle, microwave and full sized fridge/freezer.
The only criticism was the balcony was a bit on the
small side. The rooms are cleaned 5 times a week and
the maids don't mind coming back if your not an early riser.
Location is great as it is right in the centre
of Playa del Ingles.

The pool area was great every morning it was cleaned by the staff.
The staff were really great, we are hoping to come back in Feb,2007.
The room was every thing you need for self catering needs, very clean. All rooms over look the pool which was great it meant we could watch our daughter while we had a lovely drink, maid service was great.
We strongly recommend this hotel.
