We stayed at Los Tilos for a 4-night holiday to celebrate a friend's birthday. On arrival, Reception was charming and helpful and we were given an apartment on the 4th floor. The apartments are fairly standard Spanish holiday rooms, maybe a little larger than some, nicely, if predictably decorated. The usual two twin narrow beds with basic mattresses, adequate wardrobe space (and hangers) and good size bathroom with bidet and a quite effective shower. The lounge is adequate, with a bed-setteem, and an armchair, coffee table and tv which we didn't use so cqan't comment on that. The kitchen was equipped with a full fridge/freezer and a coffee filter machine. Enough cups, places, saucers, glassware, cutlery and saucepans for three people; and a four-ring electric hob.
The balcony was huge, overlooking the pool and with a distant sea view which was a bonus. It had a table and three chairs and a thinggy for hanging washing or a towel to dry.
There is an on-site restaurant-bar which we didn't use but which seemed popular.
Because Thomas Cook Airlines lost our luggage we were unable to use the pool but it seemed very inviting and well-maintained. There is also a children's pool. There are plentry of sun loungers and sunshades too.
Because of the luggage situation we had to ask the two Receptionists to telephone Thomas Cook's ground agents at Las Palmas Airport several times during our stay and they (the Receptionists) were unfailingly polite, sympathetic and helpful. The duty Receptionist on Sunday morning, when the luggage did eventually make an appearance, seemed almost as delighted as were were!
Because the partments are immediately opposite the Yumbo Centre, we had expected late night noise but there was none - the only thing we heard was the occasional bus - there is a bus stop immediately outside the enhtrace to the apartments, which are directly on the street.
We found the apartments to be better than we expected and we would recommend them to anyone wishing to stay in central Playa del Ingles, close to all the Yumbo has to offer both days and night. Note that there is not a 24-hour reception here, so your room key will open the gates after about 9pm ...
