Playa del Ingles (literally translated as “Englishman’s Beach”) is one of Europe’s biggest resorts. With nightlife, duty-free boutiques and glittering sand as far as the eye can see, it is a popular destination among the 18-30 year old crowd and also includes its fair share of fun-filled daytime activities for the family.
The beach is dotted by bars as well as restaurants featuring local cuisine but it is when darkness falls that Playa del Ingles truly comes alive as party goers descend upon the island’s host of bustling nightclubs, among them super clubs Pacha and Cream. To relax and unwind, visitors can let their hair down at the numerous apartment complexes at Playa del Ingles and luxury hotels which can be found on the famous sand dunes of neighboring Maspalomas, the desert by the sea.
This small but well-equipped apartment is placed in front of a lively commercial center, just a short walk from Playa del Ingles and Yumbo. Robert’s home is ideal for those keen on having a pulse on the action instead of quietly sitting still. Entertainment, restaurants and convenience stores are all easily accessible.
You’re in solid hands from the moment you arrive. Robert’s home provides a pickup service straight from the airport for much less than the cost of a taxi. The check in and check out process is also very smoothly handled with the host and his colleague always on time and available to make your stay a pleasant one.
