We were at Hotel Medano virtually the same time in 2013 having not been back there since 1989. We returned for a week in October 2013 and have now had another week there in early March 2014. There were at least two other couples (Scandinavian or German) who were there last year as well. Says it all really. Read the... More

Just returned from a week in the Médano Hotel. Had requested a sea view, but the hotel was full so did not get one. Room Basic with plenty of storage. We had a balcony that overlooked the side alley. Unfortunately, the alley acted as an amplifier and, at times the noise was horrendous. I had taken ear plugs with me... More

Officially a three-star hotel, but it deserves another. Our rooms with balconies were super and with direct views out over the Atlantic. Cleanliness was excellent and the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff can't be beaten; they were always smiling and happy to chat or share a laugh in English or Spanish and everyone made us feel very welcome....

Yes it's only rated 3star but the overall cleanliness, staff friendliness and accommodation is better than most 4 or 5 star hotels in Tenerife except for the very tired and un imaginative food served in what resembles a school canteen. I can't imagine what the Management are thinking. Half board is a total waste of money and we ate out... More

We usually book 4/5 star family hotels when we travel but this trip the kids were left at home and we travelled ourselves. Came across a deal in 'on the beach' for a weekend stay in El Medano half board for £420 and decided to take it. On first arrival I hated it, single beds, basic room, tiny TV so... More

By choosing a superior room we got a room with top location, overlooking the beach and the center of town and with all day sun on the balcony. Nice to watch the surfers from the balcony. We liked it very much, but if you don`t like the noise from the shore it isn`t the spot for you. The white painted... More

Stayed at this hotel on our last night in Tenerife. We found it to be a clean, airy and pleasant holiday experience. The staff were helpful and the atmosphere cosmopolitan. Breakfast was basic but overall acceptable. We couldn't eat the evening meal as it was too basic but enjoyed a good Chinese within walking distance. This is Medano so forget... More

Pretty basic hotel, food below average, standard room clean but basically equipped. However, the hotel is very well located, it is built partly into the sea with directly access to the sea. The staff is friendly, the service okay. Very nice atmosphere at the close market place (just some steps away from the hotel) with a good mixture between hippie... More

El Medano is the worst hotel I have ever been. First, I want to admit the miserable cleanliness in rooms. At the bathroom there were stickers that everything was disinfected. In fact, when I took clean clothes with soap and wiped the toilet seat it was almost black. I have never encountered such cheat in the hotel with 3 stars.... More

Can't fault it! Before we stayed here we read some not so great reviews Can't believe they are for the same place we stayed! Myself and my boyfriend both in our 20's stayed for 1 week Food was great lots of choices and always hot, plenty of sun beds great if you want to chill out. Very clean and modern... More
