5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

well what can i say that already hasn't been said.............nothing.
The apts are excellent, the best i've stayed in in tenerife, i loved the location, easy access for some great restaurants, and real, easy to get to the beach.
The staff at the hotel are lovely, very friendly, from the cleaners down to security at night.
We visited over new year, and was the only english in the apt complex, was told, that over new year 95% of the rooms are reserved for scandanavian holiday companies, but this was to our advantage, as during the day, they were quiet around the pool, (which is lovely and has great sunbeds, just ask at reception for a blue padded mattress should you want one), then come happy hour, tommy has his hands full serving everyone and then the singing and dancing starts........ brilliant.
People say it's on the outskirts of the area, but for us it was a nice 10 min stroll down to the la paz strip, a extra 5 mins down to the safari centre, 2 ways to the beach out of the hotel left and down to the supermarket down the steps and your at the las vistas shopping centre, or out the complex, right, right again, up the hill, turn right, down the hill and over the road and you come to start of the san telmo area.
We had a studio, room 103 overlooking the pool bar, great nice and clean and a big studio with massive balcony which gets the sun all day long. But the bonus for me, was because we was overlooking the pool bar, we managed to get the internet from the pool bar in our room. There is free wifi in reception, and at the pool bar, but nowhere else on the complex.
All in all this is a fantastic complex, clean, modern, fantastic staff and everything you could want, i've got my flights booked for next new year, just waiting for a bargain price to come up to book these again.

We stayed here 31st Aug-14th Sept '12
We arrived at the hotel about 8pm and got a lovely welcome by the reception staff. We got keys, dumped our bags and had a walk to the local supermarket (mercadona) which we used all holiday as it was very cheap (especially for beers). The hotel room was very basic but we hadn't paid the ritz prices so didn't expect that! You have all u need in the kitchen, tho be careful wen washin up as there's not much space, also the water get EXTREMLEY HOT lol. The bathrooms are massive and the shower was better than I've had in other hotels I've stopped in. They cud also do with air conditionin in ever room.
The pool is fantasic and the pool bar well...everyone is right about Tommy, he's ace just be careful of he's magical cocktails and shots ha.
We visited the beach afew times too which was lovely, they charge u for umbrella's and sunbeds but if u go early u've got them all day then and u can leave them if u go for lunch as u get a ticket!
There are afew restaurants around the hotel which were all very nice but have a walk along the front to los cristianos....its lovely and there quite afew restaurants and bars there too.
If u enjoy day trips the Loro Parque and Siam Park twin ticket is a DEFO, we got it for 61euro from just down the road but its best to shop about.
We didn't visit the strip as we went for quite a chilled holiday but the nyts we did have out at the local bars I cudnt complain(at my purse the mornin afta too :-)). Altho afew ppl we met said it was only about 5euro in a taxi to the strip which isn't bad if there's afew of u!
One last thing.....if u like Indian food visit 'Bombay Blue' its imense :-)

If ur just lookin for a nice chilled holiday this hotel is a defo. Its very clean, nice staff, lovely rooms and fantastic pool and pool bar.
I'd definatley stop here again

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room as there are bars underneath the hotel and the locals sit out till early ho...

The place is extremely clean. Rooms cleaned everyday other than weds and sats. Hotel staff very welcome and very nice. Hotel is very quiet though. Its beside the locals on the outskirts of las americas. If your young and lively I'd advise u too stay somwhere closer to nightlife. We found the area boring at nights but veronicas and starco pumping. Overall hotel spotless but too quiet and too far out.

Excellent hotel all round I have stayed there 3 times now . Everyone one of the staff are very nice and extremely helpfull. Rooms are spotlessly clean and they are cleaned every day . All rooms have a balcony overlooking the pool which is also very clean and well maintained as is the rest of the hotel. Very quiet on a night so guaranteed a good nights sleep .Small galley kitchen in the room which has microwave, toaster. kettle and 4 ring hotplate. All cutlery.crockery and pans are provided. Only a few yards walk from the hotel door and you are spoilt for choice with restaurants all reasonably priced. Perfect location as only about a 10 minute walk to either los christianos or in the other direction las americas .The beach is also only about a 5 minute walk. Tommy the barman is well worth meeting , great character.

Room Tip: Have stayed 3 times and every room was excellent

Just returned from 9 nights here. We loved it. The reception, bar and cleaning staff were all lovely and friendly. The rooms were spotlessly clean and well equipped. Can't fault anything during our stay. Little Italy just down the road was the best place we ate out at.
