Take a look at the best party hotels in Playa del Ingles.
The 92-room Axel Beach is a mellow adult-only hotel catering to gay couples and groups of friends. The focus at this upper-middle-range property is on relaxation, with a spacious pool, a spa and a sauna, and morning stretch classes in the gardens. Minimalist, modern one-bedroom apartments have kitchenettes, furnished balconies, and nice bathrooms. Wi-Fi is free throughout, but there is a fee for use of in-room safes, and rooms facing the street may get noise. The pool bar offers a long list of cocktails and a few snacks, and there's a buffet restaurant as well. The hotel is a little above other mid-range hotels in town, and location within walking distance of nightlife and dining is a major plus. Couples looking to stay closer to the beach may want to consider Hotel Bronze Playa.
Adult-only Playa del Sol is a solid gay-friendly, mid-range apart-hotel in central Playa del Ingles, with direct access to Yumbo Centre from the property. Its large, immaculate pool has a whirlpool and poolside bar that serves cheap drinks and small dishes. The 140 clean, cheerful apartments all have poolview balconies and sofa beds, but air-conditioners must be rented and free Wi-Fi is only available via direct bookings. Noise from neighboring Yumbo Centre may also be an issue. The hotel also has a rooftop sunbathing terrace where clothing is optional, plus a decent gym and a wintertime restaurant with dancing and live entertainment. During the summer, expect a lively, young crowd at the hotel. For a more peaceful summertime apart-hotel with easy Yumbo access, its also worth considering Cordial Biarritz Bungalows.
The huge 724-room IFA Buenaventura Hotel is a mid-range hotel located within walking distance of Playa del Ingles' buzzing nightlife and beach. It's a lively resort-style property with plenty on offer, including an excellent animation team for entertainment during the day and night. Simple rooms are well-maintained with light wood and wicker furniture, plus some have sea views from balconies; however, tube TVs and motel-style comforters are dated, and many amenities incur a charge. The pool area is usually a crowded hive of activity and not great for relaxing. This is a good value option for fun-focused families, but couples seeking peace and quiet should check out the adult-only Riu Don Miguel.
Jardin del Atlantico is a lower-middle-range all-inclusive catering mostly to young partiers. Its 330 one-bedroom apartments are clean but basic, with no air-conditioning and simple pinewood furniture. The breakfast buffet gets great reviews, but the rest of the meals are just average for an all-inclusive in this price range, and the restaurant is tiny, which can result in lines during peak season. The only entertainment available on-site is live music several times per week, but there isn’t much going on during the day. The hotel is located across the street from several loud bars, so families and those looking for something quieter may want to compare rates at Labranda Playa Bonita Hotel, which is farther away from the nightlife area but still within walking distance of the beach.
