This is the first time I have felt the need to place a comment on any holiday I have taken. Reception: On the odd occasion I needed the help & guidance of the reception staff I found them to be extremely rude bordering on ignorant. Just one example of this was when I asked if I could extend my room on the day we were leaving as we had a late flight home on that Saturday night, all I got back was laughter and no explanation just a grunt “we're full” (not helpful and not clever). Dining room staff: Again rude and unhelpful, we put this down to the fact they were run off their feet due to lack of staff. Also be aware if you go half board no drinks are supplied with your evening meal not even water, you can buy them however at extortionate prices. The food however was spot on something for everyone and a wide choice. Room: Clean and tidy. Location: We were told the beach was a 10 minute walk, 30 minutes minimum, however, the bus service is frequent enough. Overall I was disappointed with the hotel and staff and would NOT recommend it.

Barcelo Margaritas Hotel - Absolutely Brilliant Hot Spot!!
I went to Barcelo Margaritas Hotel with a family friend in 2008. It was absolutely brilliant. There was different shows every night, 'Mexican night' and many other fantastic shows and performers. The reps where really friendly and got you involved in all the poolside games and the all famous 'Clap Dance' - very catchy I must say!! The food was quite the same everyday...but pizza hut is only 5 seconds down the street!! Not to mention The YUMBO Center, a 10 minute stroll and its jam packed full of shops and clubs..some for gay men also!! Restaurants around the location were beautiful and reasonably priced. Not forgetting the beach, breathtaking. The weather everyday was glorious sunshine, and the poolside music really got you in the holiday mood. Our room overlooked the whole resort, which overlooked the pools and bar. The bedroom was really cosy, that air con really helped!! We have so many fantastic memories of our holiday at Gran Canaria. We hope you do too!! Fab!

We just got back from our second holiday to the las Margaritas Hotel. What a difference 19 years makes. There was no all inclusive last time we were there and I think although the food was quite good, a lot was lost in the fact that the hotel has been a victim of its own success in that most of the personal touches have been lost by the volume of people it now handles through its restaurant. I found the bar staff intolerable in their ignorance for manners. The rooms, although still basic, are quite comfortable. The 24 reception desk staff need a real lesson in customer service techniques. I enjoyed that downstairs night club when I was here before but now, even though modernised, is dead after midnight. For those of you that have never been to this hotel before I would say that it will be an experience, but for the well travelled seek accommodation elsewhere.

Just about summed up the hotel. First time we have been. Made to feel second class guest on an all inclusive package. Once bar staff clocked your wristband they avoided you, snacks made behind the bar were only available when restaurant was closed. Bar stayed open till midnight, a plus, but all incusive finished at 11.00pm PROMPT. Once you were paying you may even be rewarded with the occasional smile from barstaff.

We just got back from a holiday at the Playa del Ingles in spain and had a great time there. We stayed at Margaritas Hotel and enjoyed it, would probably try find somewhere smaller next time because they are very busy with lots of rooms. There is lots to do and we all had fun at the resort and the hotel also had everything we needed, with good pools, efficient staff and excellent food. We went with other friends and would love to take our kids sometime.

Barcelo Margaritas a self catering hotel and was just what we were looking for. When we've visited Playa des Inles before we have stayed in the Sunwing Playa but unfortuantly the hotel is currently closed. The rooms at the Barcelo have large balconies which overlook the pool. The apartments are quite and air conditioned and are kept very clean by the friendly staff. The hotel has buses which go to the beach every hour or so.
