Booked this hotel with fairly low expectations, especially given the 3* rating. Such an amazing surprise! First night we arrived after dinner, and we were offered bread, cheese and fruit, but we decided to head into town for chicken nuggets. We slept horribly the first night, our room was by the road and the dustmen woke us at 5am. However... More

Everything just perfect :) We spent amazing 15 days in this paradise. Playa de la Arena is great place to relax, very clean, not overcrowded. We rent a car for 7 days and made several trips (Masca, Loro Park, Pyramides, Anaga, NP Teide and El Teide). NP Teide is excellent place for taking photographs of stars and milky way.

Plenty of sunbeds. Always something you could eat and if you were late for breakfast snack bar at pool would make you something fresh. Always something on show at foyer (handicraft,jewelry,clothes etc.) Handy as not many local shops in area.

Travelled to this hotel as a last minute trip to the sun in March. Did read the reviews but thought we'll go with a open mind and enjoy the sun if nothing else. Hotel is a hour away from the airport so after a long trip couldnt wait to get settled, unfortunatley reception took so long to book in not... More

Hotel was very nice, our room was clean and spacious and the food was good. However boring nothing to do for English couples, mainly for Spanish familys. Wouldn't recommend going here waste of money. A few staff here who spoke English were very rude to my boyfriend saying 'shy English white boy' which I find racist and disrespectful. So overall... More

My boyfriend & I went here on a last minute holiday during the first week of April. We were all inclusive. After reading reviews on here, we upgraded to a superior room which cost us an extra £65 for the week. As we booked it the day before we arrived, the hotel didn't have us on their system but were...
