This family-friendly hotel is arranged around a huge pool, which has a shallow end for kids, and lies at the centre of a generous sun terrace. This amazing outdoor space is lined with loungers, parasols and palm trees, and features a pool-side snack bar for refreshments throughout the day. Children are royally entertained with a kids’ club, adventure playground and mini-disco every night. Grown-ups will be just as delighted with the on-site gym, which is free to use, fitness classes (both in and out of the pool), delicious international buffet, plus live shows and music in the evening. The whole family can join in with the volleyball and water polo fun, but if you want to escape for a bit, TUI SUNEO Waikiki provides an adults-only area, too.

Overview of Playa del Ingles, Gran Canaria

Playa del Ingles soaks up the sun on the southern coast of Gran Canaria, and is one of this beautiful island’s most visited resorts for good reason. In summer, the average temperature hovers just below 30°C, and the beach is an uninterrupted stretch of golden sand for almost three kilometres. You’re within easy reach of vibrant resorts further along the coast and spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants, bars, shops and nightlife. TUI SUNEO Waikiki is a fantastic base for sun-worshippers and party-goers wanting to make the most of their holidays to Gran Canaria.

Things to do in Playa del Ingles, Gran Canaria

Playa del Ingles Beach is a 10-minute journey on foot, or you can save your legs and take the free hotel shuttle bus.

The town centre’s bars, restaurants and shops are only 500m from the hotel, or if you fancy exploring more of Gran Canaria, you can use the local bus service from Playa del Ingles and visit the bustling resorts of Puerto Rico and Maspalomas. The beauty of staying at TUI SUNEO Waikiki is that you can walk everywhere.
