Stuck in the middle of nowhere this hotel offers excellent value for an all -inclusive holiday but don't plan on being able to go sightseeing without hiring a car. At the end of a promontory at least a mile from the nearest village all there is to do is try and enjoy the childish entertainment provided! If the wind blows... More

Stayed in the end of September for 4 days with 4yo and we all had a lovely time. You can’t beat the location, right on the beach, in the centre of El Medano. Food overall was ok, a bit limited but tasty. The hotel staff very helpful and informative. The hotel has a sunbathing terrace with direct access to the... More

I have just returned from a week in the hotel El Medano and wanted to say how pleasantly surprised i was. The resort of El Medano is a gem that not many people have heard of and if you are not keen on the clubs, disco's and English bars of Playa de las Americas or Los Christianos then i highly... More

I was moved to an awful room at the back of the hotel which smelt of chip fat from the restaurants outside if you left the balcony door open. The food is poor, average at best. The rooms don't have wifi or a fridge and the reception staff can be a bit curt. I love the town but will in... More

Travelled as a couple for 10 days at half board in August-September 2014 time, weather was lovely (warm, humid and breezy). We booked a shuttle transfer with returns (however the return did not arrive!), shuttle transfer was a 5 minute long ride and we saw how empty the plains of the surrounding area was, the sea front isn't that built...

Stayed in this hotel in July, must admit I was reluctant as all the reviews seemed to be poor, as a result of which I was pleasantly surprised. In one of the reviews someone wrote that it is a 3 star and it is, it is also good value for money. Now, upon arrival I thought the hotel looked lovely... More

Stayed here I night, had read reviews prior so knew what to expect. Reading between the lines most reviews are accurate as you get a good 3 star hotel which is clean (and constantly kept clean by the good staff), recently updated to modern and the food is better than school diners even if similar format. Best feature is the... More

Stayed with my boyfriend here as El medano is the kite surfing central. Unfortunately there wasn't any young people, mostly old and middle aged, we were the youngest couple there. The rooms are nice and spacious with everything you need except air conditioning but it wasn't necessary. The rooms are clean, with long balconies and amazing views. The hotel itself... More
