Absoloutely Brilliant :)
I went to the ifa continental back in june/ beginning of july ( forgot to write this) as my 18th birthday present with a few friends.
Firstly yes the rooms are a little dated however they are nice and spacious, especially for 3, 18 year olds! we asked for 2 rooms next to each other as we were a group of 5 and the reception staff made sure of this, they were all so friendly!!
The pool is lovely and spacious and always clean! god day time activities, pool side snacks and drinks etc. The food was the best part of the holiday!!!
Such a variety and always hot! roast pork with crackling! steaks! fresh pieces of fish and much more! not the usual chip malarky ive had in other hotel experiences.
Also for teenagers like us looking for a night out, less than a 10 minute walk from the plaza which has EVERYTHING! we all loved MTV. dont go to pacha - rubbish. just watch out for the people asking you to go to their clubs , drinks can cost a fortune!
the beach was also nice and again the daytime shopping centre was good too if you want some bits and bobs.
Overall i would say for any age, families or teenagers the IFA continental is a brilliant stay and would totallu recommend it out of many of the holidays we have been on!!! p.s wireless for only 1 euro an hour!

Brill half term break!
Excellent hotel, very clean and staff very helpful, can't do enough for you. We have paid £200 more each per week in Lanzarote and Fuertaventura and food not been as good. Plenty of choice each meal time, lots of salad, fruit and veg! Yes entertainment can be bit cheesy but it always is, no worse than any other hotel we've been in. In fact better than a lot!, some of sun beds are in shade around pool because of hotel building and palm trees but they're not glued to the floor you cam rearrange them. All staff very polite and helpful, dining room staff very efficient, no dirty plates waiting long on tables, always checking areas for cleanliness. Lots of Germans in hotel but all very polite, we don't expect to go abroad and stay in an all English hotel! Well done to all at IFA Continental for a fab holiday!

Ideal for mature couples
The hotel is a little old fashioned, no air conditioning and hair dryers only provided in top 2 floors. The are no provision for children except a small swimming pool and neither evening or daytime entertainment are provided for kids so I would not take my grandchildren there.Having said that it is ideal for couples of all ages. The staff were brilliant, the place was clean and the food was good, although it became a little boring after 10 days of being offered the same things every day but in my experience that can be said for all all inclusive even the 5* hotels. We never had trouble finding a sun bed and the pool and surrounding areas are beautiful and well maintained. We went in Feb and we also went in October last year and this is the only hotel we have returned to in 25 years of holidaying abroad

Good value shame pool is in shade for many hours in February!
We had a very pleasant week .We did pay an extra 70 euros to upgrade our original room in order to get a sea view and be on 5th floor which was quieter.Hotel required you to pay 5 euros for pool towel,plus 5 euros deposit and 1 euro each time you wanted a fresh one. We actually bought 2 towels for 9 euros at the local shop.Food was good and often cooked in front of you. Very pleasant staff.

fab hotel get there quick
Just got back (January 6th 2014) from this holiday absolutely fab would highly recommend this for the new year, food excellent well everything was very good. Weather was about 22-25 degrees every day and we hardly saw a cloud in the sky. We went on a walk every day to Masapolomas sand dunes really good. The only thing the hotel grounds where the pool is you have to chase the sun around until 5pm but we always managed to find a sun bed.Hotel very clean and the staff are really friendly. Just go and enjoy yourselves.

we enjoyed this hotel as the food is excellent good choice staff really helpful only to willing to help hotel is very clean staff always seem to be cleaning
my only complaint is the sunbed rule does not seem to be enforced as towels are put on sun beds early and people do not claim them until the sun comes round towels are not removed

Excellent value for money
Exxcellent value for money. Hotel couldnt have been better placed, being so near to the beach and transport facilities. Easy to use buses to take you round the other side of the island. Hotel food was fabulous, in fact, too much to choose from! Hotel and restaurant very clean and very helpful members of staff. A fantastic idea for All Inclusive - you can just help yourself to wine, beer, soft drinks etc., no need to queue up at the bar! Food and snacks available most of the day and lovely sandwiches after 10pm - nice to soak up the alcohol!
