I stayed at this hotel with friends. Basic hotel and just a place to crash for the night. We spent most of our time out of the hotel and found this place to be cheap and well located, so it was great. It is a club 18-30 hotel, so if you want somewhere quiet then this is not for you.... More

The Optimist is a basic self cater appt. Its central to Las Americas, its clean but a little dated, the staff are typical Spanish, they dont like Brits and who can blame them, the pool area is safe and good, plenty of sunbeds and its clean, the rooms are large needs updating

We arrived in April for two weeks. Tha apartment was excellent. Superb location close to beach. The weather was warm. The pool was clean and it made our holiday. We swam every day. We walked to Los Christianos most days which is about a 10 min walk. Lots of shops, bars and bistros. We shall be back soon.

I stayed in these apartments as part of a package deal approx five years ago. They were awful run down and noisy. You can imagine my dismay when I discovered my friends had booked us into them via holiday lettings .co.uk. However I have never seen such a transformation. The apartment we hired was a two bed and had been... More
