We travelled to Tenerife in July 2013 for a week and really loved our whole experience. For a budget holiday (£378 flights, transfers and half board accommodation) we completely loved the whole trip.
We had 2 rooms: one with 3 people, the other with 2 people. The rooms were spacious and completely spotless - cleaned every day with fresh towels and sheets. The only complaint I have is that there is no fridge in the room and the water in the tap doesn't run completely cold so we couldn't even make a cold sink of water to keep drinks cool. However there is air con so the room is always nice and cool.
The hotel was close enough to the airport, with the transfer taking just under an hour.
The food in the hotel was brilliant - we had one vegetarian and one fussy eater in our group and had no problems at all. Breakfast consisted of a great selection of cold food (yoghurt, fruit etc), pastries (criossants etc) and hot food (beans, eggs, bacon etc) and omelettes made freshly in front of you.
The dinner was also really good - a fantastic salad selection, cheeses, pizza everyday, normally some form of roast meat such as turkey, beef or pork. There were also loads of vegetables and often a vegetarian option such as spinach cannaloni. VERY impressed with the food.
The drinks available were very reasonably priced (cocktails 5euros, bottle of wine 5.50euros, large lager 1.60euros) and of a good quality. Again the lack of fridge in the room was a problem if you didn't finish your bottle of wine but we just made sure we drank it before we left the bar!
The entertainment was... interesting. In the day it pretty good, with water polo and aerobics every day. In the evening it got a little more strange! We sat through some interesting acrobatics, a music quiz and a very strange "Mr Oro Negra". It wasn't particularly directed at children but there were very few children at the hotel due to the time of year so this may have been the reason why.
The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the beach, where you have to pay around 5euros for a sunbed and the sand is VERY hot - burning hot! But the poolside area is fantastic, plenty of sunbeds and the staff are more than happy to help, they can't do enough for you. The pool is lovely, quite cold at first but not bad at all. Really clean and not too busy, really great pool.
Tenerife in general was fantastic. Brilliant weather - 30degrees heat most days. There is a shop around the corner with most amenities - drinks, snacks, ice creams etc but it is a little more expensive than the supermarket about 10 minutes walk away.
The Veronicas strip was really great fun for clubbing. As five 21 year old girls we found the atmosphere entirely safe and friendly. Drinks are really cheap, but definitely watered down. Prepare to be hassled on the strip in the evening, people will try and get you into the clubs but just barter for more drinks and you'll be fine, don't be scared to asked for an extra drink or extra shots!
There were also plenty of restaurants nearby, the food was very similar - pizza, pasta, chicken and salads. Very much the same but often a good price and great quality.
Overall, a fantastic holiday in an amazing location - couldn't have asked for a better hotel, I was incredibly pleased with the whole experience. The hotel is placed perfectly - go left for the strip and right for the hotels. The beach can be accessed in either directions.
Really recommended - go to Tenerife, go to Playa de las Americas and definitely consider this hotel - it's fantastic.
