“A Great Value Quiet Hotel Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

As many say the hotel is not 5* but is really a top end 3* or 4* city hotel quality. However this is clearly reflected in the excellent room rates (3 visits and we have never paid more than 35€ half board per person per night) Therefore please do not be put off booking, you get good food, very cheap Wine by the bottle! and generally nice guests who retire early and go out exploring the island leaving the pool area and gardens pretty quiet. This is a hotel you will enjoy if you prefer to be left alone, prefer early nights and early mornings.

The guest rooms are large and offer ok facilities but the big bonus is that each room has a lobby with internal door so you get no noise from other guests, communal hallways are also carpeted. Yes the rooms are a little tired for a 5* but as already mentioned you are paying a room rate nearer to 3*. You do get noise from traffic on lower floors but this tends to be drowned out by the Atlantic waves breaking on the rocks!. Close the terrace doors and it is quiet.

To sum up a good hotel for the price, friendly staff, nice pool and garden area with a pool bar and fantastic views, a decent sheltered semi-indoor heated pool, Jacuzzi and Spa. Ideal for mature couples/singles who want a good value 4*.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor "Planta alta por favor" better views and less noise from the sea and...

Overall a good hotel in a good convenient location, easy to walk out to shops and cafes nearby and not too far to walk into the main centre. Quiet and attractive suburban area with lovely gardens and lush greenery (it does rain there!) All the hotel bedrooms overlook the sea and the superior rooms are higher up with no traffic noise from the road below - all you can hear are the constantly crashing waves.
The hotel is overall of a good standard but lacks the service we would expect of a real 5* hotel e.g. no one to meet you and carry your suitcases in, not always enough staff available. The bedrooms are large and comfortable and very clean. The food is generally good though again not 5* but still quite acceptable. The hotel has a range of good amenities available and lovely grounds. We would certainly go back there again.

Room Tip: If you ask for a superior room you will be higher up without traffic noise and you will also be upgr...

good view , clean ,good sized rooms about 3/4 mile from centre. downhill going 4 euros taxi back .. food plenty with good variety. downside (or possible upside) mostly foreign guests with germans and spanish at top of list. staff efficient and no language issues. hotel entertainment basic and not every night . porto de la cruz lovely. GOOD price therefore can recommend both the place and hotel

The hotel has the architectural charm of a multi-storey car park but once inside the rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The service standards are very high but the price very reasonable. Some of the furniture tatty but all areas clean. Felt a bit like it was running on reduced means. Superb views and located in a good area with plenty of parking available in the area if you have a hire car. Buffet breakfast and dinner were good. Paid 85 pounds per night for a triple room half board so good value. We liked it.

Hotel Semiramis offers the best price-quality ratio in the Canaries.
Don't just look at the five glittering stars above the entrance. Stay and enjoy!
It might not be a Four Seasons or a Ritz-Carlton, but You certainly get more what You
pay for.
Of course they could renew the interior, but after the renovations the prices would be
double, maybe triple. In other words: GO NOW! ...and enjoy. This fun won't last forever.
Make your stay even more enjoyable: book a 'Senator room' - absolutely worth the few extra euros. You can send me a message afterwards telling how grateful You are
believing me.
