Myself and my friend both in our early 20's have just returned from a week in Las Americas and to be perfectly frank, will not be returning to these apartments, they are definitly not 3 star. We had read the previous comments but had reassured ourselves it couldnt be that bad, well it is. We arrived on the Fri nite at 11 and it looked awful from the outside, really old apartments, got inside to reception(if you would call it that) and after waiting more than half an hour got our key. First thing we seen when opening the door was cockroaches crawling on the wall. Went to reception and got the rep to come up and get rid of it but it crawled back out a hole we had in our window!!! Had our room fumigated the next day and came back that evening to the room full of dead cockroaches. We then had to spray our room ourselves everyday and get rid of the dead cockroaches in the evenings. We had no air conditioning and could not leave our door open as in the evening there was a least 10 of them crawling outside the door. Had to put a towel across the bottom of the door each nite. We had finally accepted the fact we wernt getn rid of them when we had another visitor - a lizard!!!! yep they were everywhere.
Pool area is very small and unless your up at 6 or 7 in the morning it is impossible to get a bed. also on one occasion a small child had an accident in the pool and it wasnt cleaned until the next day.
Myself and my friend enjoy a good nite out but also enjoy getn a good nites sleep, well it is not possible in these apartments, the noise goes on all night, singing, music, doors banging, people having conversations across balconies etc etc.
The only positive side to these apartments are the staff at the bar are very friendly and the food is lovely. Could not be faulted.
On a different note, anyone wanting to go to the waterpark, it is very very expensive, and you also have to pay for the rubber rings at 11 euro each. We arrived at 11 and they were all gone and we therefore only got on 3 rides for 24.50. the only attraction is the dolphin show, its amazing, not to be missed.
Did not like the night life in Tenerife, it is very rough!! We stayed down the irish end most nites which was slightly quieter but alot safer.
All in all if you a party animal then this resort is for you, but otherwise i would not recommend it and most definitely would not recommend the apartments. Will not be returning.
