The Playa Sur Tenerife is more than a little bit shabby and in need of a serious lick of paint, which is shame as its prime location right by the beach and dominates the El Medano skyline. Everything just seemed a bit old fashioned and was like a throw back to the 70’s. There is so much space both inside... More

Kitesurfing and windsurfing holiday. The hotel was on the beach, a perfect location in between the kitesurfing and windsurfing beach. The hotel was near to a nice cafe which did great breakfasts as sadly the hotel buffet was swarmed with flies and served rather unfresh looking omelette, cold meats and cheeses which wasn't much choice, but the coffee was nice....

Couldn't fault the hotel or its staff, the food is good, rooms are good, everything is good about this hotel! Really didn't have any complaints at all, and I am planning on returning as soon as possible.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our holiday and that only because the other El Medano hotels were full. I wouldn't stay here again. How can the people that run this hotel be so negligent? The hotel is clearly only run for profit and no investment goes into anything. Whereas it is very badly needed: the... More

Firstly, you can not fault this hotel's location - right on the beach, close to El Medano's facilities. There is a car park but it's small. For those without a car, a bus stop is right by the hotel connecting to Abrigos, Medano and San Isidro. The price per night worked out at about £40 per night. The hotel itself... More

Very very basic hotel. Everything just seemed dirty and the rooms had no air conditioning. This would perhaps be ok if the price was not so high. We only spent 53mins in this hotel before leaving even though we still had to pay for the nights accommodation. And that was too long. Decided to head back to Santa Cruz (40mins... More

I stayed here recently and wouldn't return!!! The room was cleaned daily but was in need of desperate refurbishment! Would recommend eating out as the food is very plain and wasn't much variety. The good thing was that the Beach was right next to the Hotel so wasn't far to walk and the shops were nearby!

This hotel has a unique location at the beach where windsurfers and kiters have perfect conditions. The room with seeview is not what you expect, you could not see the beach sitting on the balcony. The rock solid fence is to high. Generally, the small room needs upgrading, especially the carpet that had changed to grey color at the balcony... More
