If you love to party, Playa del Ingles on the island of Gran Canaria is where you want to be...
Anything goes at the clubs and bars in this hedonistic south-coast resort, where the drinks are free flowing, the music loud and the dancing energetic. By day, however, calmness descends and Playa del Ingles becomes a tranquil destination for family breaks.
Playa del Ingles' double personality means that holidays here can be anything you want them to be. Just choose your accommodation to reflect the kind of break you want. Night owls, for example, should pick an apartment just a short moonwalk from the clubs, while those seeking a more relaxing time will prefer hotels and villas set away from the lively nightlife.
For families, holidays in Playa del Ingles are likely to revolve around the resort's five-mile stretch of blue-flag beach and the abundance of nearby restaurants eager to welcome tired toddlers at the end of the day. Shopping too can be a rewarding experience, as the many commercial centres house dainty little boutique shops offering both modern and traditional local crafts.
But Playa del Ingles holidays really kick off when the sun goes down. Shots and cocktails are the traditional way to get the party started before you head off for a boogie. And if a few cosmopolitans have got your nerve up, you can also exercise your lungs at one of the excellent karaoke bars dotted along the Atlantic Ocean coastline.
Whether or not you party hard, it's worth taking a look at what's on offer outside Playa del Ingles - especially as car hire is cheap in the Canary Islands. Gran Canaria Airport (LPA) is half an hour away from Playa del Ingles, so it might also make sense to book a car to save on the cost of transfers to and from the airport.
