If a peaceful break is on the cards, this attractive hotel most definitely comes up trumps. It's got a palm garden setting that surrounds two pools, a semi-covered restaurant, and a big sun terrace. The nearby sandy beach of Playa del Ingles rounds things off.
The Continental will impress you from the word go. Sitting in gorgeous sub-tropical greenery, it’s so close to the honey-coloured sands, it'll have to be a toss up between the beach and the pool. And you’re not far from the resort’s attractions either, which include a shopping and leisure centre. Even lively Playa del Ingles is just a taxi ride away if you fancy a night on the tiles.
From the moment you step in to the Continental’s spacious lobby though, you’ll probably want to spend much of your time here. Once you’ve unpacked your bags in your contemporary room with its modern furnishings and private terrace – make a beeline outside. Here, you can take your pick between two lagoon-style pools, which have waterfall features and separate whirlpool baths. Flanked by sun terraces with cushioned sunbeds, thatched parasols and swishing palm trees, there’s plenty of space to kick back and relax. And with a snack bar on hand, you won’t have to move far come lunchtime.
If you tire of sunbathing though, there’s plenty to keep you on your toes here. You could join in the daytime activity programme. Have a game of football on the sports court. Or make a splash in the pool playing water polo. And if you’re travelling with little ones, they’re not left out either. Not only do they have their own swimming pool, but there’s also a hotel-run kids’ club during the main school holidays and a playground.
After dark, start your evenings with a slap-up buffet meal at the restaurant. Light, airy and elegant, it spills out onto a pretty terrace filled with colourful flowers. Here, you can tuck into traditional Canaries cuisine as well as international fare. And show cooking is always on the menu, so you can have your steak just the way you like it. Afterwards, head for the bar where live music and shows make a regular appearance. However you spend your time at the friendly Continental, we bet you won’t want to leave.

Fantastic hotel in a great location
Stayed here in June 2014 and this was my second visit with friends. The hotel is huge, has 2 great pools, lots of sun loungers and a decent sized buffet style restaurant. We opted for all inclusive which at the time of our visit included all sit-down meals, bar and pool snacks, house beers, wines and a couple of cocktails as well as soft drinks. Large selection of various foods at meal times, hot and cold choices and deserts. Staff are always friendly and helpful and everywhere is clean. Our room had a balcony with table and chairs, decent sized room, comfortable beds. The hotel is a 2 min walk from the nearest beach and a 10 minute walk from the centre of Playa del Ingles which is great if you want to experience the nightlife but don't want to be staying in the middle of it. Would definitely stay here again.More

4th time at the IFA Continental
This is our 4th visit to this hotel! The staff are excellent and very efficient. Nothing is too much trouble. The Entertainment team are great fun and very funny. The Hotel was spotlessly clean throughout, our room was cleaned everyday, with clean sheets and towels. The food was excellent with plenty of choice for everyone. We stayed for 10 nights AI and before we arrived we Emailed the hotel to upgrade to a sea view room and when we arrived they had our Email and had honoured our request without any fuss! The sea view rooms are on floors 6 and 7, we were in room 727 which was a lovely room and had a great sea view! We can honestly say we had a really lovely relaxing holiday and would recommend this hotel to anyone! we are now looking at booking again!More
