The Parquemar is a quintessentially Canarian hotel that occupies a spot in the heart of Playa del Ingles.

The hotel features a string of whitewashed, terracotta-topped apartments strung out around a central pool. Each comes with self-catering essentials like a fridge, hob and microwave.

The pool is a big rectangular number with lofty palms and flowers for company. There’s also a children’s pool just a few steps away, so you can watch them play and paddle from the sunloungers that line the area.

Overview of Playa del Ingles

Playa del Ingles invites you to enjoy a holiday to Gran Canaria with the volume turned up to the maximum. Tourism is at the heart of this beautiful resort, which is lined with silky beaches and plenty of water sports.

Playa del Ingles is a resort where fun is guaranteed 24 hours a day. It’s a destination for partygoers from all across Europe, as many of the clubs keep the party going until the sun comes back up.

When you fancy exploring, the Parquemar is also only a short taxi journey away from San Agustin, Maspalomas and Sonnenland.

Things to do in Playa del Ingles

The Parquemar’s location is a real highlight – it’s right in the centre of Playa del Ingles, so you’re surrounded by bars and restaurants when you don’t fancy cooking.

The nearest sweep of sand is only a 15-minute walk away. There are plenty of places down on the front where you can put your towel down, but if you head all the way to the southern end, you’ll reach the beautiful Maspalomas Dunes.

You can expect long nights of entertainment and dancing, too. Traditional English pubs, Irish bars and flamenco hotspots are sprinkled throughout the resort, but if you don’t want the party to end, the beach bars stay open late.

Tourism is at the heart of Playa del Ingles, so you’ll never be short of things to see and experience.
