“Truly 5 Star!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Having been to all of the Canary Islands and experienced many, many hotels this one truly is a superb 5 star hotel that deserves its accreditation. The staff are excellent, the food equally excellent. Facilities cater for everyone and everything has that luxurious touch. We will be back, and if you are looking for a 5 star hotel literally on the beach you won't be disappointed here.

Room Tip: Sea views are well worth the premium

We came back yesterday after spending 7 wonderful days at this beautiful hotel and if i could i would have given it more stars!.As previous reviews have said it is faultless, the food was amazing so much choice!,and a special mention about all the staff they were lovely so friendly, efficient and very professional. The managers are about all the time checking with the guests and making sure they are happy with everything, nothing is too much trouble for them, we really just could not fault anything . We would like to say a special thank you to Nicole Schaffers the general manager it appears that she had read my facebook posting about it being my husbands 65th birthday the week before our holiday and as a lovely gesture a bottle of bubbly and a belated birthday card appeared in our room. This really was the best holiday we have ever had so relaxing, the hotel so clean everyone so friendly and helpful we just can't wait to go back, a very special thank you to all the staff as they really made our holiday special.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room 426 which was lovely, very quiet, when we go back we will try pool view as al...

So where do I start, this hotel is totally faultless it has to be one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had and is set just a short stroll to a beautiful beach
The food is excellent with the best buffet breakfast I have every seen truly unique and it's served 8am till 11am, the evening meals had a great variety of food I never saw the same menu twice
The staff are so friendly but also very professional in there individual rolls.
The managers and general manager would always walk round and talk to the guests on a individual basic you are a guest at this hotel not just a number as many hotels treat you, they have guests return year after year and I can see why, but a special thank you has to go to the general manager who arrange for some cake and a bottle of champagne to be left in our room for my wife's birthday when we went down to thank a manager we was introduced to the general manager and she new my wife by name
To the general manager please pass on our thanks to all your staff for a fantastic weeks holiday, you should be very proud of yourself for what you have achieved.
Will we return to this hotel yes we will

We stayed 7 days at this hotel and it was excellent. The staff was very friendly. Especially the Dutch female manager. She knows her job really well and has a good eye on all her guests. Because it was end of May the hotel was mainly filled with older people, but if you like the quiet evenings it is also excellent for youth. We didn't try the entertainment in the evening because we went to the center of playa des ingles that time. We had the feeling it was mainly targeted towards the older target group.
Absolute positive point is the location of the hotel. It is just beside the beach and this allowed us to do long beach walks every day of our stay.

My wife and I stayed for two weeks in May .Check in was quick and efficient and our room was very clean and comfortable . Breakfast is buffet and the choice is first rate while the evening meal changes between BBQ ( Buffet ) and waiter service . The food is good but on the waiter service evenings you can wait a long time between courses . The hotel is well maintained and has several swimming pools and well laid out gardens . The staff were all first class , very helpful and friendly with nothing was too much trouble . We have not been to many hotels where the rooms were serviced twice a day and look forward to another visit .

Stayed at this lovely hotel for 2 weeks with a 20 month old. My comments will be based mainly on the childrens aspects as the "adult" side has been covered in detail in other reviews.

The hotel is lovely - very clean, well maintained, nice facilities for adults and nice childrens pool, kids pool, baby pool and childrens club (I went in accompanying my daughter a few times). The childrens club is nice, but not an over the top or loud/shouty childrens club, more relaxed, playing board games, craft activities etc. The playground is lovely, climbing frame, swings, seesaw, on sand base.

Location is fabulous - minutes walk from the main shops and also the beach, quiet and also really close to bus station for local buses to most main resorts on the island.

There were certainly a lot more older clients at this hotel than families, very few families with young children. As the meals (lunch and most evening meals except the "BBQ") are waiter service, it isn't the perfect situation for young children. Its difficult to occupy a small child for 30 minutes waiting for their dinner, never mind whilst you eat your meal over 5 courses! Although the BBQ is more of a buffet, you do still usually queue and wait for meat/fish to be freshly cooked and again this can be more difficult if having young children to occupy. The first week I was there was Easter Holidays so they actually did a separate childrens buffet which although it wasn't extensive, it was at least self serve so children could be settled with their dinner (which starts at 18:30). Unfortunately after the easter week this ended.

The staff are all very helpful and made me feel very at east and comfortable as a single parent. The rooms are not huge, but comfortable and as I don't spend a great deal of time in the room, it was fine. I could not find ANY english TV channels for children, even though the list in the room said CBBC, it wasn't available. Wifi in the room was OK but dropped single intermittently. Bathroom IS compact, but again, I don't spend a huge amount of time in there. Please note that only rooms on floors 3 upwards have baths, so if you are below that you will have a large shower cubicle which may not be ideal for small children (although the hotel said they could lend a baby bath if needed)

The area where I was disappointed was that there was nothing for the little ones after dinner, no small disco or entertainment. I didn't necessarily expect childrens entertainment in this hotel but I did think they could have at least played some childrens songs for say 15 minutes in the bar area around 7:30, when most of the "adults" would still be enjoying their leisurely meal. As a result, I used to get a taxi to nearby BaoBa hotel for the disco as it was the highlight of my daughters holiday.

It is very much a relaxing and low pace hotel - there is certainly not the in-your-face entertainment staff, or loud music and commentary around the pool.

All in all, I wanted to leave this review for those with young children. I often scour these reviews, especially for "single parent" reviews and find very few. I felt totally safe and comfortable in this hotel and, if I could afford it, would go back again. I think as my daughter gets a little bit older, she will prefer more childrens activities, a disco and more little children to interact with.

Thanks to all the wonderful staff though - they really are very helpful.

Room Tip: Floors from 3 upwards have bath - below that I don't believe you have a bath, only shower, so ma...

Just arrived back after spending our silver wedding anniversary at Palm Beach Hotel. Its the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff were so friendly but very professional and made us feel so thoroughly spoilt and very special. On 2 occasions we received in our room champagne and strawberries and again champagne and canapes. The little touches like water and a chocolate by our bed and room service twice a day were amazing, never had that before. The grounds and pool are superb and loved the spa. Its right by a beautiful beach and very nice for a walk out during the evening.
The restaurant is fantastic we had wonderful food everyday. We would so recommend this hotel, a big thank you to all who work there, from the reception staff, bell boy, restaurant staff, pool attendant through to the domestic staff and the gardeners, maintenance staff. You made it so special for us, and a BIG thank you again. Paul and Wendy
