A nice hotel which I would recommend but with the caveat that you can block out the noise of the next doors hotel's dumper truck throwing rubble into a skip for most of the week days whilst they do renovations and that if you are towards the end of hotel, furthest away from the sea and you have your patio doors open, you can sleep through the bin men collecting next doors bins at 3am in the morning and their cleaning staff chatting and moving wheelie bins around first thing in the morning
2 bed apartment was on the sixth floor towards the far end (furthest away from the sea)
We are a family of 4 adults
The summary above may have you thinking we didn't enjoy staying at Palm Beach hotel but actually the hotel itself was very good. Unfortunately the noise from the hotel next door is beyond Palm Beach's control, although had they turned the air con on we wouldn't of had to sleep with the patio doors open. They told us at reception that the air con starts from July but it didn't appear to be on in our room.
Check in was easy, we arrived about 20:30 on a Friday night. We bought a single user wi-fi log in for €25. (See wi-fi comment below) and also bought 3 gym cards which were €10 each for the week and included a pool towel each.
On the Saturday morning I was up about 08:30 and could see towels on the sunbeds already, this was a bit of a theme all week.On one day the life guard did remove some towels as no one had returned to the sunbed in over 2 hours. I only saw this happen once. Actually there were plenty sunbeds around the pool area so hogging them really wasn't needed. One of the life guards was quite officious and did not allow ball games in the shallow end of the pool, he was also strict with children jumping in the pool. The other life guard didn't seem to have the same "priorities".
There is a small gym on site and also a hair salon which also offers other Beauty services as well as massage, non of these we tried so can't comment on the quality or price.
There is a small shop on site as well as a "supermarket" (another small shop) next door. There were various acts performing in the lobby in the evenings, unfortunately they wouldn't get far on Spain's got talent.
We checked out at 10am the following Friday with a flight at 21:00. The hotel will store your bags and you can use the pool for the day which we did. There are showers and changing rooms next to the pool
On site restaurant
The on site restaurant called Little Italy served good food and the staff were really friendly. The 2 evening meals for 1 offer is excellent value. We ate breakfast, lunch and evening meals there on different days and never had a bad meal.
Wi-fi (ssid Silverpoint)
As mentioned above we bought a single user log on for €25 for the week. It is single user so if one of your other members of your family wants to log on you have to log off first, unfortunately you then have to wait about 10 minutes before the next person logs in, with in those 10 minutes it keeps saying you are already logged in.
The wi-fi did not cover all of our apartment, the lounge and patio areas were ok but the back bedroom was not covered.
I noticed that the hotel next door called the troya had wi-fi as well when I connected to it it took me to their log in page with options to buy the wi-fi for the day or week. A week was on €15, I didn't try this as we already bought the Palm Beach wi-fi but it might be worth a go.
Taxi fare from Tenerife South Airport €24
Excellent location to the strip, beach, shops and restaurants
Little Italy on site restaurant good selection of food and good value
Generally plenty of sunbeds
Clean room and cleaned every day
Towels on sunbeds (with not a German in sight)
Next door apartments/hotel maintenance entrance noisy very early in the morning
Constant noise during the day from renovation work on hotel next door
Ask for a room nearest the sea
