Hotel of the Week: Parque Tropical, Gran Canaria

You only need to read the reviews on TripAdvisor to see how popular the Parque Tropical Hotel in Playa del Ingles is. From the food at breakfast, lunch and dinner, to the beautiful grounds and gardens, large, clean swimming pool and comfortable rooms, everything about this hotel is great. The staff cannot do enough to help you; you really feel like they genuinely want you to have a fantastic time.

Parque Tropical is located a short walk from a bundle of shops and bars, and just 15 minutes’ walk from the centre of Playa del Ingles, which is always lively and full of fellow Brits. It’s a great location – quiet and relaxing, but still near enough to the action of Playa del Ingles with its beaches, bars and restaurants.

One thing you might miss is a huge number of Brits; while the hotel certainly isn’t lacking in British guests, Spanish and German seem to be in the majority. But don’t worry about not getting a sunbed or being splashed at the pool. The atmosphere at Parque Tropical is one of the best things about it, and if you’re craving some British banter, the Irish Court nearby is a fantastic spot to catch some live entertainment and a few drinks.
