A central postcode and a great pool scene are a couple of the highlights at the Hotel IFA Catarina.
This place is surrounded by gardens, so it has a really peaceful feeling about it. That said, the heart of Playa del Ingles is just a few minutes’ walk around the corner.
When you want to swap poolside for seaside, Playa del Ingles’ beach is a 15-minute stroll over the sand dunes. If you don’t fancy walking, though, the hotel runs a free shuttle bus.

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 bedrooms were very large and clean as was the bathroom with constant hot water. although when I first saw the view from our room I was a little disappointed thinking it would be noisy as we were on the main road and facing a couple of restaurants but it wasn't it was fine and great for the sun on a morning. just abit of a treck from reception. Only bad thing was the bed was so hard it was like sleeping in the floor. There were different areas to sunbathe if you wanted to listen to music and join in with the animation team around the pool was for you but there were also lots of different quite areas if it was peace and quiet you were after just a short walk through the beautiful manicured gardens there are a few different little areas I found the one around the fish pond to be the most relaxing. The restaurant was nice and plenty of fresh food and lots to choose from especially breakfast time, the staff bring your drinks to you rather than help yourself. Overall a lovely relaxing week with very friendly staff who are always working hard and nothing was to much bother. Little tip at breakfast .... If you have bacon and beans whilst waiting for the toast sack it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. Would I go back? Yes definitely More
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.More
Not what I expected
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 was more than disappointed when the "free" beer ran out and none other option than paying for beer was given. What pulls the hotel is their pools and garden that's really cozy. They also have an okay playground for kids. All in all I would expect more from the 4 stars.More
Well situated for beach and town. We were all inclusive. Good food, plenty of choice, 3 cocktails on the all inclusive, apparently there is a gold package All inclusive but no idea what that gives you. Wasn't offered it and the normal is good enough. How much do you need to drink? Oops are a great size, good shower, clean, comfortable and has toiletries and hairdryer. All in all great holiday.More
