5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We found this place on the second day of our holiday and ate there everyday for the rest of the holiday. The food was amazing and so was the service. Alan was always smiling and guaranteed a warm welcome from him. The price for the food and drinks was excellent for what you get the food portions were great and the caramel vodka shots were amazing made by alan himself :). We had such a great time in this bar and will be going back next year. Thanks alan love yhe twins xxx

In need of some sunshine, we again returned to our timeshare at Fairways. It's only 6 months since our last visit but there have been some changes - some for the good and some not so good.
Positive: The online check-in really speeds things up, a great idea, and Juan was there, ready and waiting to carry every possible thing he could manage right into the apartment. A lovely peaceful week apart from the aircraft flying overhead, as usual, but you soon forget about them.
The TV channels had just been changed to a digital system so a good selection of UK channels available though there were a few teething problems.
Negative: Having raved about the food in the Club House in my last review, I found out on the 1st night that it had gone downhill bigtime! Didn't return. The in-apartment wifi at 20 Euros for the week is pricey, you can only connect 1 device at any time and making that connection would test the patience of a saint. Maid service only twice in the week - it used to be every day or 6/7. I used the 2nd bathroom half way thro' the week, to avoid disturbing my sleeping wife only to find that the toilet was blocked! It must have been like that from the previous guests but no-one noticed when they serviced the apartment? Once I reported it, the problem was dealt with in quick time.
Negatives apart, I still like this place and will be back next year - unless I feel I need another dose of Vitamin D before then.

Room Tip: I like apt 101 - big balcony which gets the sun all day, and, a roof terrace as well. I also quite...

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments, and we take all comments very seriously be they good or bad.

he Club House restaurant normally gets good food reviews so I shall certainly discuss the point you have made directly with the restaurant manager.

I would have expected the toilet blockage to have been detected prior to your arrival and have raised the matter with the maintenance department, but am pleased that the matter was subsequently dealt with in an efficient manner.

We rented a privately owned 2 bedroom appartment in The Fairways Club for a week during half term to enjoy some winter sun.
We booked through Owners Direct and were not disappointed.
Our appartment was on the first floor and was comfortable, clean, well equipped and quiet.
The best thing was the heated pool complex. It was kept in extremely good order by the staff, and it was clean and enjoyable to use.
The resort was well located near to shops and restaurants, although we did have a hire car to get around.
I will definitely be using Owners Direct again.

We visited this complex as a week of timeshare exchange. We had read some good reviews and were looking forward to spending a week here before going on to our own timeshare property in another part of Tenerife. As soon as we arrived in the apartment (No 618) we noticed a strong smell of drains in the bathroom and reported this to reception on our way down to the restaurant for an evening meal. They said someone would come to attend to the problem as soon as possible the next day. As nobody had appeared by mid-morning we reported it again and eventually a workman appeared around mid-day and spent about 20 minutes in the bathroom "fixing" the problem. However the smell returned within a few hours, albeit not quite as strong as before. Despite reporting the problem again nothing further was done so we gave up.
The apartment itself although reasonably clean was well overdue refurbishment. The furniture and fittings were very tired looking and although the bed was reasonably comfortable there was no mattress cover and the base was torn and threadbare. Windows and doors were very ill-fitting (there was a half inch gap in the side window of the lounge where the strong wind whistled through and we had to keep the curtains closed to avoid the draught). The noise levels were also high in these apartments. Being on the flight path to Tenerife Sur does not help but the sounds made by people in adjoining apartments is often all too evident. The only saving grace to our stay here was the good choice of places to eat within walking distance. We enjoyed good meals at the Premiere Bar, The Ninth Hole and the Black Dragon (Chinese restaurant - just across the road). All of these places offered good food and drink at very reasonable prices and we went to all 3 twice.
Overall our week's stay was not a good experience and we would not return to this resort unless the apartments were given a major refurbishment.

Baby's first trip abroad the staff couldn't have been more helpful. comfortable accommodation well equipped kitchen, we had a very pleasant week. TV has UK channels. Plenty of amenities in the immediate vicinity of the complex. Security at the complex was excellent (carded gates) and we felt secure.

We stayed in a two bedroomed elite apartment (2612) for 4 nights 20-24 March. A lovely gesture by the hotel management of a bowl of fruit and a few essentials including a bottle of red! I was a bit disappointed that non of the beds had mattress protectors on them which made me feel a bit uncomfortable, however the apartment did really need to be de-cluttered, there was far too much furniture in the place and it really needed a good clean it was quite dirty especially when I dropped my bracelet and had to retrieve it from a set of drawers, Yuk! My hands were black and full of dust and grit? The resort has three/four bars places to eat which we tried and are all very good and competitive. Not sure if I would go back to these particular apartments, the area is lovely, very relaxing for a mini break.

Peaceful relaxing break in a small well cared for complex. Staff are very welcoming and accommodating and will do their best to help you in any way. Some units are a bit tired but they are well maintained and regularly cleaned.
It's a short walk onto golf del sur with numerous restaurants, although no typical Spanish ones in the immediate area. The fishing village of Los Abrigos is approximately a 40 minute walk along the coast and has lots of fish restaurants
