The food was fine with plenty to choose from and fresh fruit and vegetables. If you are too fussy there are thousands of bars all serving cheap meals right outside your door.
The rooms were clean and tidy. We stayed 7 nights and our room was cleaned 5 out of 7, which I think is fantastic. The staff were not the friendliest (we had competitions on who could make the barman smile) but remember they have to put up with a lot of drunken people all the time. Be nice with them and they are nice back. Even though we were all inclusive we tipped them and they couldn't be more helpful.
The pools were cleaned every day and the surrounding pool areas were all clean and tidy. Yes it is noisy, what do you expect? Its the holiday capital of the world. If you want to be tucked up in bed by 11pm then you really shouldn't be staying in Playa del Ingles.
So to sum up - You get what you pay for, just remember 99% of people who comment on these forums are the ones who have had a bad experience and not the thousands who have had a great time. All 11 people in my party had a fantastic holiday and we would go back to this hotel again.
The hotel had NO entertainment whatsoever and the staff were down right ignorant until the day we left- then they were all smiles hoping for a tip.
The food was average- but being a picky eater I lived on chips and cheese. Cocktails in the all-inclusive- I swear all tasted the same- watered down orange juice. Coke was flat for the entire week we were there. Luckily we only used the hotel to sleep/eat in. Nothing else we could do.

I will go back again but be prepared for basic accommodation and noisy bars opposite the entrance ask for a room as far away from reception if noise bothers you. Also booked this deal with ola holidays and have to say they were fantastic not like the last company media travel they are really poor.

when we arrived we found that our room had two single beds. we asked the receptionist if we could be moved to a room with a double bed, but they said all the rooms in the hotel have single beds!
there was no entertainment at all but we didnt mind as we were out in the clubs most nights. the irish bar across from the hotel wasnt really that noisy, but we were at the back on the hotel not the front.
there was 4 swimming pools, no music on, which i like while im sunbathing!!! i only saw one bar by one on the pools.
the cleaners come to your room every other day, but we locked the door most days as you dont want them just walking in anytime of the day, especially when your having a lye-in, which they tryed to do a few times!
location though was near all the bars and clubs, plenty of shops and beach just down the road.
i wouldn't come to this hotel again.

The hotel is very central and big. It has four different swimming rooms and there was none of that fighting for a sun lounger nonsense.
The facilities included a supermarket on site, hairdressers, Internet, pool bar and restaurant.
Had a good stay with the exception of the loud noisy Irish Centre opposite are apartment. Sleeping in the bedrooms that faced onto the centre was impossible and we made do in the lounge.
The noise doesn't stop till after 4.30am and gets louder after midnight. This hotel is perfect, if that's what you want, but being woke up when you've finally got to sleep by countless drunks who can't remember which room is theirs, wasn't great fun.
The rooms are large and clean. The entertainment was non existent and catered solely for the Spanish.
