What do we think of Izaro Club Hotel? � Absolutely SUPERB. To arrive to a very smart, clean Hotel was a great weight off our minds. Even better was to be greeted by the ever- friendly and humorous Luiz.
The staff are the jewels of the crown � but indeed what a fine crown they have! The complex is spotless and meticulously maintained. The attention to detail is amazing. Some may say they have been trying too hard. However the pride in their complex is obvious and we felt lucky to be there at such a reasonable price. They cleaned the rooms every day (unheard of at this level of price \ accommodation). They even cleaned every sun bed and would personally put the cushions on every bed after wiping of the condensation. It seemed that nothing was too much trouble. It was 5 star service, with the difference being that you weren�t paying 5 star prices and they didn�t have to go as far as they did to make your stay so good, but the WANTED to � and that�s what made it miles better than ANY 5 star hotel that I�ve ever stayed at. The hotel and the staff were so much better than one would expect � they weren�t being paid to �offer� the service, it was above and beyond what you could dream of.
The only �average� we encountered was with the restaurant. However we accept that the hotel has to cater for the majority and we suspect the majority wanted plain and simple (un-seasoned) meat and veg. The fruits salads and breads were spot on, the desserts were okay too. They even offered cheese and biscuits. We only tried the cooking for one meal, so it is hard to form an qualified opinion. Put it like this; we know that they are phasing out self-catering and introducing Half Board. We would be prepared to pay the extra to be able to stay at the Izaro, whether or not we ate there every night.
The rooms very fantastic; they were clean, tidy, modern and ours was spacious. Our friends who came to visit were jealous of everything about the Izaro, particularly our apartment.
The pool was lovely and warm (relatively unheard of in January), the facilities were wheelchair friendly, including the pool. They had dedicated staff to entertain the kids and the young at heart adults (if you wanted it).
We found the location of the Izaro excellent for the harbour area, which we preferred to the main seafront bars of Puerto Del Carmen. The restaurants were lovely there and we spent most of our evenings sampling the different bars and restaurants there. But if we wanted to go to the bars along the �strip�, a 3 Euro taxi ride was all that was required, which made it very accessible. As for the hill; you should try Madeira � now there are real hills there!!! Yes, pensioners might struggle, but the abundance of affordable taxis makes the issue irrelevant.
My wife and I agree that this has been the finest holiday that we�ve had in Europe (& Canaries). Just the hotel alone would have put it above the others, but the friendliness and professionalism of the staff and management put them out of sight of the competition. You�d be mad to not consider the Izaro and you want to be assured a brilliant holiday experience.
