Being Spanish myself, and from another very touristic region, I remember growing up as a kid in the 80s surrounded by hotels that looked like... exactly like this one. Other parts of Spain have evolved, and have tried to modernize their tourist infrastucture to adapt it to modern European standards. Some places have succeeded, this hotel hasn't. El Medano still...

I find the reception very helpful. Location is wonderful. I would suggest going with swimsuit, even if its your business trip. Only stayed for few hours but helped with keeping the luggage safely in lock room for a while. Restaurants closeby and what all. In a negative side, taxi cant let you reach right at the gate of the hotel... More

My two daughters and I stayed, yet again, in this hotel as our family has since 1984. We were allocated our favourite rooms, (we gave them lots of notice but, of course, there are no guarantees) and the welcome and friendliness of the staff were as warm as ever. Unfortunately, I was taken ill while I was there and received... More

A cosy mash-up of a hotel, warm and friendly, a bit bohemian, a bit rough around the edges, but all the better for having no fanciful airs and graces (bring your own shampoo!) If you're after a posh, slick, 4-5 star operation, give it a miss. If you want a bit of character and service with a smile in an... More

We had a wonderful 4 days at Hotel Medano. If you love the ocean, you will love this hotel, as it is right on top of it. You couldn't possibly get closer! Sleeping to the sound of the waves, waking for breakfast from which balcony you can go for a fresh wake-up dip, and watching the sunset from your wind-protected... More

The hotel could not be faulted, the position actually on the beach, the Art deco style of the building, clean, elegant and with superb sun terrace and even able to swim from the main sun terrace directly from the steps leading into the sea. Rooms vary a lot and we booked a sea view with balcony and this is advised... More

This was our second visit to the hotel and, once again, we were not disappointed. It was great to be welcomed back by the friendly receptionists and staff and we felt at home immediately. Our comfortable rooms were spotlessly clean, as is the whole hotel and staff work very hard to keep it that way. We enjoyed sitting on our... More

The hotel itself is very unique because of the location, depending on the travel bureau You may be asked at the reception desk to pay extra for a sea view room with a balcony. Food is great, and there's plenty to choose from. Note that it is the perfect place for wind surfing - so after summer - there is... More

I was our first time in Tenerife so, didn't know what to expect. We arrived to a lovely hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. The room over looking the sea was very clean. We enjoyed the food. Met lovely friendly people and joined in the day n night entertainment which, is a first for us. The guy doing the entertainment... More

Beautiful art deco style building in a prime spot right on the sea in lovely El Medano. It does not have parking (to be fair, it doesn't claim to) but if you are in a car, you cannot drive up to it so expect to walk with your luggage. Rooms clean and functional. We had a room overlooking town -... More
