Considering that Tenerife was in the throes of its worst winter for 15 years we had a great time. Still much warmer than home and the apartments were worth every penny we paid. Rooms cleaned everyday except sunday and staff all friendly and cheerful. Reception always helpful and dealt with room requests, ie bathroom light bulb blowing, very quickly. L... More

We were lucky - allocated the room on its own right at the top on the roof - great views and very peaceful. There did seem to be quite a bit of noise below from groups of younger people so the main hotel might be less peaceful. Breakfast was ok - nothing special but perfectly adequate. The room was clean... More

On arrival, the first impression is very good ...a lovely outside area with an atrium ... but the apartments themselves are VERY basic ... to the extent of being quite stark. The kitchenette area was lacking in essentials like a toaster, and my fridge had to be given 2 shoves to get it to close properly. However ... clean, hot... More

We were self-catering so we did not eat here, however the food looked and smelled fine. The view from our apartment over the mountains was stunning. The apartment was cleaned every day except Sunday, and all the staff we spoke to were very helpful. We had one problem in our apartment, the cooking ring was broken and this was repaired... More

This is a nice hotel friendly and helpful staff but what sadly lets its down is the poor quality of food I.e. overcooked vegetables, fish fingers and nuggets for adults and no conception of vegetarians along with the food temperatures I.e. tepid at best. But the salad bar in there favour was very good. Please dont remove this review as... More

I'm guessing from the other reviews there's a lot of variety in the rooms. Our apartment was on second floor, down from the pool, and was very dated (1970s brown bathroom suite, woodchip walls and louvre windows). It didn't feel very secure, the front door was battered, hard to close and had a very poor lock, and an equally insecure... More

Clean rooms.. Good food (buffet).. Friendly staff.. Close to the center and the beach.. The only bad thing for me is that you can hear almost everything from other rooms. For the price you have to pay for a stay here you cant complain much..

Most of the reception staff were friendly, being a speaker of Spanish, it's easy to converse, one of two weren't so friendly and slightly disinterested! However, the rooms were clean and large and the foyer reception area is lovely! The bar isn't the best, but location is great here! I would visit again!

I stayed here for 1 week, for period 23 September 2014 to 30 Sepetmber 2014, on a leisure holiday. Prior to arriving at the establishment, I did email them directly to ask for a top floor room, at end of corridor, with nice views. The room given, room no. 501, was perfect, with wonderful view to the summit of El... More
