Accommodation

Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles to the company have over 500 hotels, however, finding a place in them on your own is looking for a needle in a haystack. 99,9% hotels and apartments are booked through tour operators, therefore if someone wants to stay in this center, should rather opt for an package tour, which, by the way, will also be much cheaper than desperate attempts to make individual reservations.
