We visited Villa Mandi in June with our 2 year old for his first trip abroad. As we left the airport we were given a sun hat for our son which, in the midday heat was a nice touch. The apartments are a short ride from the airport.
I thought the hotel had a nice feel about them, it's a large complex but is laid out well. We had a ground floor room which was very spacious. Although we'd ordered a travel cot we actually used the pull out bed for our son as it was so low. There weren't any sheets on the cot incidentally although I'm sure if we'd have asked they would've provided some. There wasn't much space for food storage in the kitchen area and the equiptment was pretty basic but I think that's fairly standard for SC apartments really.
The pool area is a good size and we never struggled to get beds and umbrellas. You can't put your towels down until 9am which seemed late but to be fair, not many people seemed to be around until 10ish. As everyone else said, the tiles are VERY slippery and hot so we carried our little boy between the pools.
The baby pool is perfect for toddlers and ours had a great time. The parks are also great for kids from toddlers up to about 10 I'd say. There's also a new football pitch over the road.
The kids clubs start at 3 years but there's a creche for younger ones and soft play etc which is all well run. From 8.15pm-9 they have 'T Time' which is a dancing entertainment slot for the children which ours loved.
The hotel shop is expensive as expected so shop at one of the many supermarkets nearby. It's about a 15 min walk to Los Cristianos or Playa De Las Americas so we'd walk down and taxi back.
The complex is very out of the way. There's a lot of waste land around it and I felt the surrounding area is looking run down to be honest. Having stayed near the Safari Centre a few years ago I was quite shocked. I guess everywhere declines in time.
Overall a great family hotel.
