“Excellent budget holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Just came back from my holiday in Tenerife. We were 2 girls wanting a cheap holiday somewhere we could party but also chill. Was skeptical at first, we only paid £240 for a week hotel, flight & transfers but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. Couldn't of asked for better! Staff were great, rooms were clean & spacious with everything you needed. Maids changed bedding/towels most days & you always saw them cleaning. Pool was a bit too deep but that didn't matter if your going for just a dip. Also has a kids pool. Lifeguard was on duty most days. Relaxing pool quite quiet & all sorts of people stay at this hotel so great mix! Location was fab, not in the heart of Americas so can be quiet & not get drunken people everywhere. I'd defiantly recommend anyone to go here and would definitely go back myself! ALSO, I left my phone, watch, all my spending money in our room & nothing ever got stolen!

Its nice we were not meant to stay here, but got moved the pool is quite small and very deep, but rooms are decent size the penthouse ones are great with own terrace area. The ones with stupid spiral stairs are just odd. Good location 5 minute walk to the pikie strip but far away to be quiet, Only saw one cockroach and that was dead.

We have stayed here twice now. I don't think we would if the 1st time wasn't ok.
The apartments are a little small and slightly dated compared to UK hotels but who spends all day in there anyway ? They are big enough to meet holiday needs. Tidy and clean enough with fresh bedding and semi comfortable beds, TV and small kitchen area with hob & grill. Lots of plates and cutlery should you eat in. For the price you pay, it is certainly value for money. A small pool in the centre of complex serves a purpose but the beach is 5 min walk away at the most. Also within easy walking distance are bars, clubs, restaurants, shops and much more on your doorstep.
Our apartment was overlooking the road and was above a bar, however the noise didn't disturb us although the music in the bar can go on until around 1am. All round a good place to stay if you are going Tenerife. We will stay here again.

Clean, comfortable and quirky, the apartments are on two levels with a spiral staircase to the bedroom and bathroom. Watch out after that second drink. All the ground floor apartments (actually upstairs) faced the pool or garden areas creating a villagy feel where everyone became quite friendly with everyone else. Staff were more than helpful and everyting you could need wasw nearby.

Room Tip: Take a pool view room on the level with the pool, the sunbed area is small on the sunny side but you...

Duplex apartment are small. I would recommend booking the actual single floor apartments. It is a very basic room. Mattress need to be updated.
Although
Its a decent stay but great location. A young spanish guy at the front desk is extremely helpful and nice.

was staying elsewhere this time but paid a visit to this place as my sister was staying here told her about our experience but she went anyway

big mistake she was put into apartment where it never gets the sun looking at a brick wall she paid extra for a sea view with travel republic

she complained both to the manager and travel republic both parties blame the other

good central area that it is in

restaurant is good can't be the same people running it

when we spoke to a lot of the guests that night in the restaurant they all heard about the missing items etc from apartments and how the reception have a drawer full of complaints that they don't show the the authorities in case they close them down

be warned best not go here

Room Tip: ask for a coffin you see more

read very mixed reviews before going but was pleasantly surprised, as i was travelling on my own i had one of the SMALL studios, i think as a couple it would just have been big enough but i wouldnt have wanted to share with a mate as you would be on top of each other. the room was cleaned every day and towels changed regularly so no complaints there. The pool is small and not many sunbeds but as was not full didnt have a problem getting one and with a bit of moving around got the sun all day. i wouldnt reccommend hotel to familys with small children if you like staying by the pool because if you can call it a kids pool it would be full with 3 kids in it. Great central location gives access to shops/restuarants/lively night life(if thats what you want)
One thing i would say is if you get given one of the rooms right over the Anchor bar try and get moved if you ever want to have a quiet night as get very loud late on
