Good location hotel, stayed in this hotel with 2 friends twice in Dec 2010 and Dec 2011. although price is a bit high relative to other similar class hotels. Most of the guests stayed here are self catering hence the food choices in restaurant is limited due to small number of people doing b&b and half board. Furniture/furnishing are ok could do with some modernisation, great shower! clean accom and pleasant staff. would recommend if you enjoy the night life in Yumbo Centre. but my next trip to G.C. will be staying in somewhere else for a change.

Room Tip: bedrooms facing main busy street so could be bit noisy. Balcony facing Yumbo Centre. Swimming pool c...

This is a great hotel. Very clean and extremely friendly staff. Maid service every day was excellent. Free parking if you have a hire car in courtyard though I can imagine this will get busy in peak season. There are plenty of local streets nearby to park. Excellent pool. Good location for a short walk to beach or restuarant/bar/shopping complexes. Not too far to walk to dunes.
BIG BONUS ! Opposite side of road to hotel is the Red Cow and Shenanigans Bar. Food is excellent for both breakfast and evening meals and a very good price. The bar downstairs offers great entertainment from 9.30pm onwards with a local and very friendly DJ playing loads of games, quizzes and fun until the early hours. Trust me, this is great entertainment. The O'Malleys Fish and Chip shop offers a great supper in the evening (all part of the complex).

Room Tip: High floor is best. There is a little bit of noise from the road. The higher the better.

This apartment hotel complex is extremely basic and clean. The beds are not comfy. Floor 1 is noisy especially above the bar, even coming in at 4am!
Staff were pleasant. Food at breakfast did not look appetising. Evening buffet was untouchable.
Wifi is very good. Poolside bar is very expensive?? €3.60 for a glass of Diet coke.
You couldnt fault the cleanliness though. Housekeeping was 1st class.
This could be a fantastic hotel with the right management.
I dont see us going back.

Just returned from a week staying at the Buenos Aires and enjoyed the break. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are professional and polite. The complex is located in the heart of Playa del Ingles but the accommodation feels fairly private, with its own enclosed pool / sunbathing area, snack bar and small private parking area. There are a couple of small supermarkets and cafes / bars nearby and the Yumbo Centre is just around the corner, hosting a full range of shops, restaurants and entertainment. It's about a 15 minute walk to the sand dunes and beach, although you can get a bus or taxi right outside the Buenos Aires ... you might want to head slightly further along the beach to Maspalomas or Melenores (next to the lighthouse) for a nice change of scene. Seemed to be mostly couples, singles or groups of friends staying at Buenos Aires, so not many kids here in January ... mix of nationalities, mostly British, German and Scandavians of all ages. Only a few very minor niggles that I have with the Buenos Aires - (1) there was no hair dryer (not really an issue for me, but you might want to take your own); (2) all the TV channels were in Spanish (which is probably not much use for the majority of guests); (3) bedrooms face onto a corridor and main road at the front of the building (so there's some background noise if you're a very light sleeper, and this is likely to be more of an issue during the peak of the summer season ... you may want to take ear plus just in case); and (4) there is no air conditioning (which isn't a big issue in January, but again could be at hotter times of the year). But overall the Buenos Aires presents good quality, affordable accommodation in a central location and I would happily stay here again if returned to Gran Canaria.

Room Tip: All the rooms are exactly the same. At the rear of the building they have a balcony that overlooks...

Second time at this hotel. Rooms clean and tidy. Staff friendly and service very good. Had two small technical problems in the room which were fixed within 15 mins of making reception aware.Pool area is nice and clean. There was one family here rest were all groups of friends or couples so was nice not to have lots of screaming children.
One small downside was the maid service, although its good they come everyday, on 2 days I put the do not disturb sign on the door only for it to be ignored and the maids come in and wake you up anyway at 10am. This probably wouldnt be a problem if was on a top floor as maids wouldnt be so early then. Will stay here again next time I go

We have just returned for a weeks holiday at the Buenos Aires hotel.

The hotel was booked through hotels4u.com who came out cheaper than other hotel websites. The website (and others) claim this is a 3* hotel however I would say it is more 2* and this is confirmed with the official 2* rating at the main entrance.

Firstly as mentioned in previous reviews the location is excellent. Next door to the Yumbo Centre (a gay hot spot) and about a 10 minute walk from the beach.

The apartment itself was compact but well equipped and very clean. We asked for a double bedroom but they only had a twin room apartment and as the hotel was full we were unable to change rooms. The beds were rather firm and we found it more comfortable to sleep on the sofa bed - for some reason I always find this when staying in Gran Canaria! The shower was very powerful and usually lovely and warm although on a few occasions it wasn't however I assume this is because everybody tried to shower at the same time. Only one small bar of soap is provided to remember to bring your toiletries especially as they are more expensive over in Gran Canaria.

The pool area is nice with plenty of sunbeds/umbrellas and is quite protected from the wind. Thankfully there was no need to wake up early to run down with your towel to get a bed. It was a nice touch that the pool was heated although beware that one side is very deep.

The hotel was mainly full of older (45+) straight couples, although speaking to friends who visit Gran Canaria often this is very common in January.

We booked half board and wished we had gone self catering. The food was served buffet style and was of an OK standard however it just simply was not hot enough - even if you went to the restaurant as soon as the buffet opened! A previous review mentioned that there was a microwave to heat food but the plates were too big to fit in (I tried!) and this should not be necessary. The small older lady who waited on the tables in the evening was lovely.

It was very frustrating that we wanted a late check out but were told everyday to come back the next day to organise it only to be told on the last day that it was not possible. Not sure why they could not tell us this from the beginning?

In January the weather was very mild (20 degrees most days) so the room was always at a pleasant temperature however the hotel does not have air conditioning or ceiling fans so I'm not sure how comfortable it would be to stay in the hot summer months. Bear this in mind when booking.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel if you choose a self catering option and are not looking for a romantic get away - after all Playa del Ingles is great to party!

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool so it does not matter.

It was several years since we last stayed at The Buenos Airies aparthotel which has since undergone a complete refit. Whilst the rooms are quite small, everything is well fitted and kept spotlessly clean. We found the staff to be extremely helpful and the public areas were kept to a very high standard. The location of this apart hotel is on the corner of the Yumbo Centre and conveniently situated for restaurants, shops and bus services to all parts of the island. However, if you are looking for a quiet holiday, this location would probably not suit.
