Just got home this morning from two fabulous weeks here and have this morning booked again for next year. This hotel and its staff have given us the most stress free break we have ever had. If we want to be with others we were, on days we wanted a quiet area to chill and relax we were able to find areas for this. Room was spotless, plenty of choices everyday for what to eat, ample drinks choices and reception staff could not do enough to help with every enquiry we made.It would be nice if there was an area of dinning area that catered only for adults, but we resolved by changing the time we ate dinner in the evening, so not a major issue.

Our family has spent a wonderful week in the company of all the staff at Abora Caterina. The rooms are clean, the food is excellent and delicious with a good variety of dining during the week. It's amazing they produce so much food for so many with the quality kept high. Well done chefs.The pools are different in nature, we spent all our time in the pool with the slides and the kids had constant fun. The supervision of the lifeguards is brilliant and they ensure the kids all use the slides safely.The reception staff are wonderfully welcoming, knowledgeable, kind and great fun to talk to. Especially Oscar who gave us a word-of-the-day for the kids to learn some Spanish. He was brill!!!The cleaners are amazing, keeping our room tidy every day and saying hello all the time whilst blending into the background. The hotel is constantly kept tidy.Bravo and thank you from our family in Room 416

Stayed here at the start of May 2022 for 9 nights. Can’t say anything bad about this place! The staff were friendly from the moment we walked through the door which was quite late due to our flights till the moment we left (even let us use the inclusive facilities till we got picked up in the evening. The room was clean, quite modern which was a nice touch and was plenty of room to relax. Our room was towards the end of the hotel which we did prefer as it was quieter but there was plenty of action in the main area of the hotel from mini games in the afternoon at the pool then the evening shows. The food was varied on each day, mainly steak, chicken, pasta, fish, pizza and plenty of breads and salads. The all inclusive drinks were spot on, plenty of cocktails were part of the all inclusive which was good and varied. In the area there is also really nice restaurants too if you want a night away from the hotel for drinks and food. Booked for December 2022 already so look forward to returning then!

Really enjoyed our stay here, beautiful hotel, very very clean throughout. The rooms are lovely as are the beds 👌so comfy. Food.... You must try the soup even if you don't like the name of it... The main dishes... You'll never go hungry that's for sure. Very close to the dunes, if you come out of hotel turn right, walk towards the Riu, then walk through the arch, you'll be at the dunes, amazing sights. This holiday was a last minute trip but so happy we found this hotel.

Couldn't really fault this hotel or the staff. Yes - it's a little battered in parts but nothing significant. The staff couldn't be more helpful - its all inclusive but they still really want to do their best and put effort in when it would be quite easy for them to take it easy a bit. The food was plentiful and tasty - particularly the New years Eve dinner. And unusually in my experience - drinks and snacks (albeit only sandwiches and wraps) were available 24hrs a day. All in all a great stay and I definitely would go back.

Fantastic hotel and staff. Really clean and very COVID safe. All staff were always polite check in was a breeze and cleanliness of rooms and hotel was five star. Rooms were big and well presented along with balconies. Good variety of food and well presented. Bars are well stocked with premium drinks. Only thing would say the pools are very cold could do with heating. Entertainment staff are amazing and work very hard. Would highly recommend and definitely would return.

Clean and well maintained hotel in a good location and great housekeeping and staff but not recommended if you want a quiet, relaxing break. Very noisy due to extended family groups with lots of children being accepted by the hotel. During my stay small children were handling food at the serving points and then leaving it for other guests. Impossible to relax by the pool with ball games being played. This was my second visit but probably my last. I am sure it will suit some people.

Since I was there, the hotel has a new owner and a makeover. I am not sure if the atmosphere is changed but it looks a bit sterile. Nevertheless, I had a wonderful experience in Catarina so its worth every star of the maximum of five

Very nice hotel and very clean.We found few issues though, one was that it's not maintained properly, a lot of rooms have their door numbers missing, our shower screen was leaking from the bottom because the silicon was loose, the bathroom's door the paint was coming off at the bottom and most of it people at the entrance of the buffet are scanned the bedroom's card but they don't offer to the customers to clean their hands with alcohol gel even though it's sitting there. I have reported this to one of the hotel manager half way through the holiday but nothing did change. I've seen people going to the toilet and not washing hands and then they might go to the restaurant touching utensils where we put or collect our food. Either than this the hotel and restaurant cleanliness are very good.

Animation staff very good staff friendly and well drilled in clearing food away and keeping tables clear room was always clean and tidy restaurant felt like a up market cafeteria food good and plenty full catered for all tastes but was chaiotic to me some sort of structure should be in place threw breakfast lunch and evening meals other that we have had a nice break
We stayed in the Catarina just prior to the pandemic commencing and loved every minute of it. We chose the Catarina owing to its naturist area which suited our needs. That along with all inclusive, a great room and friendly staff made it a hotel that we would go back to. as we know the area very well it was an easy walk to the Yumbo centre and in the other direction the Maspalomas sand dunes and the beach. We had a wonderful stay and cannot wait until we feel safe to fly and return.

Not really 24 hour all inclusive, after 11 pm can only get wine or beer and a prepacked sandwich. Adult only solarium very scruffy.Décor could do with tidying up, food nice but cold. Hotel was a little disappointing.

We visit this hotel 2/3 times a year and can't wait for the pandemic to settle so we can return when restrictions are ceased.The rooms and facilities at the hotel are modern, clean and cater for all age groups. The adult only rooms have great views over the dunes and mountains. The facilities for children are amazing and the entertainment team work tirelessly to make sure all age groups are having a good time. The evening shows are enjoyable and a credit to the work the team put into them.There is a small gym with a varied DB weight range, although some 2 and 3 kg would be nice for a weakling like me. There is also adequate cardio equipment.The hotel is situated not far from the famous dunes and the promenade walk to PDI.We've always been made welcome by all staff and impressed they remember us when they see so many guests.There is a lovely barman in the bar downstairs who is always friendly no matter how much pressure he's under and the very tall waiter who we think is called Noe always greets everyone with a friendly smile and kind words no matter what your age. We can't wait to return to see all these friendly faces again after a tough couple of years for everyone.We'd recommend this hotel above any others in this area.

Great for all ages! If you are a fellow fish lover you will be over the moon with the veriety and freshness of the food, by the pools there are always free sunbeds unlike at other hotels I've vacated they have an all day bar wich you can get hot and cold foods inbetween meals. The beach is not that far if a walk but you do have to walk a lot of steps or optional ramps. Ifyou are part of the LGBTQ+ community it seems like a very accepting and accommodating place. If you have children there is night entertainment, a kids club and a small arcade.

Impeccable service and quality food. Sets the bar high for 4 star accommodation. Company shows how you can be perfectly covid safe in a hotel. Nothing to worry about.

Food wine staff were all good but the lack of Parasols forced us to use the beach every day. 12 Parasols around both pools with 400 /100 sun beds in 25 degrees heat was poor service. Also people saved beds all day with towels until 3pm and returned to hotel to use them. Your policy states this is not to happen but staff unable to ensure people do not save sunbeds.

Pride and Joy

The 2 outdoor swimming pools are the hotel’s pride and joy. However, a fitness center is also an important part of the complex’s recreational scene. And of course, a restaurant and bar complete the picture as always. Sounds familiar, right? Well…keep reading.

Free toiletries, a hairdryer and bath are available in the private bathrooms. But, it is the rooms themselves at the Abora Catarina by Lopesan formerly known as IFA Catarina Playa del Ingles that really stand out. All 402 of them, to be exact. Each one with one double or two single beds and air-conditioning. And as if that wasn’t enough, a radio, telephone, TV and private balcony are standard features.

Business Or Pleasure? Doesn’t Really Matter

The Abora Catarina by Lopesan boasst a 24/7 reception. That means that your every request will be fulfilled quickly. In addition to mandatory on-site shops, there are also other amenities at this resort. Though, of a more professional nature. We are, of course, referring to the meeting facilities. So, if business should interrupt your Gran Canaria vacation unexpectedly, you will be able to respond swiftly and with style. A shared terrace is also available. Therefore, should you feel the urge to mingle at any given time, you will have the perfect playground to practice your social skills.

Garden and Pool Areas

And speaking of playgrounds, we have arrived at yet another crucial feature of the Abora Catarina by Lopesan. Children are great. Right? They are cute, cuddly, interesting, adorable….for a certain period of time. Every now and then, parents need to take a time-out. And while you are doing that, your child can have fun at the hotel’s cozy playground for children. Then again, if you want to get those muscles moving, there is also a game room and tennis courts. Basically, every member of your family will have no trouble finding an interesting activity to explore.

The Abora Catarina by Lopesan Has No Weak Points

The legendary beach of Playa Del Inglés is nestled some 900 meters from the resort. Then again, the buzzing nightlife, shops and bars surrounding the Abora Catarina by Lopesan are also just a short stroll away. If and when you get tired of these, there is plenty to do at the resort itself. Needless to say, the cordial staff will see to it that your every desire is fulfilled. You need only ask. That is, if you are able to peel your eyes away from the lush gardens and swaying palms long enough to actually feel the need for anything.

Food is also another strong suit of the Abora Catarina by Lopesan. This is thanks to the two types of restaurants in-house. But, the bars shouldn’t be overlooked either. The buffet restaurant is in charge of the main meals throughout the day. However, there is an á la carte restaurant as well. And when you feel the need to quench your thirst regardless of whether you are craving a skilful cocktail or a non-alcoholic, healthy smoothie, the bars will be there to the rescue. Seriously, why are you still reading this?
