we arrived their late night, about 1am, and check in was fine, the lady at reception was very helpful, and considerate when we struggled with getting our key in the door!! We had a 4th floor room and while the lifts wernt anything brilliant they worked and got you were you wanted, the stairs were just as quick though athough the light didnt always work on a night which was difficult when stumbling in from a night on the strip haha!
Our room was fine! Very basic but all we needed for the 2 of us on a girls holiday. The bathroom was also fine and we just needed to remember to close our air vent on a night. Our balcony over looked the bar area and the swimming pool and was equipped with a table and chair. Like i said before it was just total basics but why would 2 girls on a party holiday need anymore than that :)
The only problems we experienced where the food. Dinner and tea was almost the same as each other, every day. This consisted of pasta, chips, and then other things that didnt look particularly appealing! its a good job we didnt need big meals! puddings were limited but nice enough.
The 2nd problem we had was with the all inclusive drinks. The bar was only open till 11pm which is fair enough , but as you can imagine we made friends at the hotel and it was easier for a couple of us to get rounds in rather than all go up one by one for a drink, but the bar staff were very adamant that it was 1 DRINK PER PERSON, 1 AT A TIME. it would have been understandable if we were trying to get loads for only a few of us or if we still all had drinks on the table but when he could see we all needed one anyway it would have been easier for us all. but never mind!
Location for us was fantastic! we were a five minute walk up from Las Americas, and from Veronicas strip. walking in the other direction took us into los christianos where there was loads to do for during the days. also from the hotel we could see Siam Park, but cause of the busy roads between we had to get a taxi round to there but it didnt cost much and was quick :)
Absolutely loved tenerife in general! Best bar for me would have been o'neills played all the cheesy pop haha loved it! best to go on the strip in big groups to get the best deals from the reps. deffo reccomend it :D
