My girlfriend and I stayed for 1 week in mid May, it was a late booking and was not too sure what to expect. Hotel room was nice, food all week was very good, drinks package very good, 3 nice sized swimming pools and although the daily activities were below par, the entertainment team were very enthusiastic and friendly.

We stayed as a couple at this hotel for 10 days June 2015. Staff were absolutely amazing and as were the team of entertainers from animacion. Despite previous reviews stating entertainment was directed more towards spanish there was extremely good efforts made to entertain for all customers from every country in at least four different languages and catered for all....

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
