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

Stayed with friends at this hotel during the weekend of the 24th of May. The views are spectacular and our stay was even better due to the fantastic service of Sheila and Anita. They are very friendly, helpful and their enthusiasm is contagious. The rooms are clean and the room that I had a balcony with beautiful views of the... More

My partner and I decided to come here for a 7 day break for my 40th Birthday, just to relax and get some sunshine. This is exactly what we achieved on this break. There are pros and cons regarding this hotel and I'll start with the negatives. Firstly, my partner e-mailed a month in advance to the hotel to explain... More

We've been to Tenerife many times but like to try and avoid the hustle and bustle of Los Cristianos etc so this time booked the El Medano Hotel in El Medano. We'd visited the town before and liked the fact that it's mainly Spanish ie not too many tourists and just needed a quiet week in the sun. We arrived... More

Our holiday in Tenerife at Medano was pretty good. Our family of three spent a week in El Medano over Easter 2014. We independently booked the Hotel Medano on-line having spent a little time in the delightful small town on a casual adventure whilst on a previous holiday in Tenerife. The wonderfully situated 3* hotel caught our eye immediately but... More

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
