I was travelling with my 2 adult daughters, one of whom has a disability. The hotel gave us a disabled room near to a lift and allocated us a table in the restaurant , which was very useful when we had to use the wheelchair. The hotel is disability friendly, providing ways using ramps to get to all areas. We...

My partner and I wanted guaranteed warm weather and a relaxing holiday during early February. We both work in retail and were shattered after working a very busy Christmas in the UK. The IFA Catarina has 410 rooms,so it's big!!! It was a mega trek to our accommodation, but we had a lovely quiet room (280) overlooking the chilled out...

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks all inclusive through Thomson. The hotel has a good position occupying a whole block and very close to Maspalomas sand dunes. Although it is looking a little tired the hotel is due to undergo a refurbishment in April 2017 and will close for two months. The pool areas are showing signs...

After booking last minute then reading some reviews I was a little worried, but no need to be. The hotel is very big and clean with the staff constantly cleaning and pottering about. Fairly central to a local shopping center, yambo center and the dunes or a lovely walk to the beach but there is also a free bus. The...

Overall an average hotel. You can barely make your self understood in English most of the time. Half of the staff were really nice and made a great effort to help, but the other half should think about their career choice. The food was eatable but nothing that stood out. Maybe that's Spanish cooking though. Paying for all inclusive I...

I always read hotel reviews. Hotel central to shops and beach. Although information leaflet states it does not tolerate "towels on beds" it happens. So you need to get ther early. Lovely pool and cafe area. All staff really helpful and pleasant. Good choice and quality of food. Relaxing atmospheric throughout the hotel.
