Enjoyed our fortnight here. My children loved the kids' club and mini-disco, it wasn't on until 8.30pm, would have preferred this to be a little earlier as it was a struggle keeping them awake some nights. They also really enjoyed 'Sanditos', the hotel mascot, who appeared a few times each day, and we booked him for a visit to our... More

Just back from this hotel and all i can say is that it was a waste of money and the worst 12 nights i have spent in Lanzarote. We arrived at the hotel and we told we had to wait an hour for our room to be ready, when we went back to reception they were rude and basically gave... More

This resort is brilliant. I have always avoided large resorts because I thought they may be too large and impersonal but this has changed my mind. From the five pools terrace to the bars and restaurants, the whole place was astounding and the staff are unbelievably helpful and pleasant. The food was excellent and the evening entertainment was ideal for... More

The Thompson holiday rep was sadly lacking - nay - invisible. No welcome pack on coach, didn't turn up for the briefing and tour she was supposed to give us around the hotel, and couldn't run a bath. The hotel staff were delightful, charming, courteous and helpful. Pool area pleasant and varied. Food generally of very good quality. Buses to... More

A lovely holiday at this wonderfully relaxing hotel. Lovely design to layout and grounds , some people complained it was complicated but we soon found our bearings after a day. The whole hotel and grounds were very clean and tidy despite being well loved and worn in places but the hotel were renovating the bar fountain in the main hall... More

What a shame about the awful weather but it seems we were very unlucky as a friend was in Tenerife at the same time and missed it completely. Most hotels can't cope with very heavy rain and strong winds but Sandos did pretty well. It was impossible to get from our room to the main block with out getting wet... More

We arrived in the evening and the receptionist thrust a plan of the hotel in our hands and directed us to our room losing patience with us as we had to ask a few times. It was dark, we were tired and the layout of this hotel is very complicated. i.e. take the lift to minus 3 walk outside between... More

Arrived on 9th December and landed back in UK last night. Stayed a week all inclusive and we had an absolutely brilliant trip. The food is plentiful and has something to please everyone. The hotel was spotlessly clean with great staff especially the poolside bar man. It has one heated pool so it's not too bad once you get in... More
