“Really impressive all-inclusive resort.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

So, I just came back from a week-long stay, and I've got to say firstly, it was my first lazy-holiday as an adult. And what a great introduction to that style of holiday!

I'll go in order of the below sections; Service. Service overall was excellent. Most staff are trilingual, all staff are polite. The only black mark was some not-so fast service during breakfast, but that was the busiest meal of the day for them and was a comment my friend made based on previous experience at their resorts. But otherwise, staff service was great. They answered our questions and enquiries and went above and beyond in many ways, and I was always greeted with a hello and a smile.

Value. Fantastic. All-inclusive means all-inclusive. A refunded €20 entitles you to beach towels which can be exchanged for fresh ones at your request, full buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, and by the pool during the day there is a constant spread of food; fruit, sandwiches, hot food, icecream etc. There is a great selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, including coffee and tea. The only thing not included was wifi, but for an extra €30 over the eight days we stayed, it isn't a huge bill to stump up for.

Sleep quality. Pretty good! The rooms are air-conditioned, quiet and dark (a must for someone with a shift-working background). The beds we all had were two singles pushed together which is not ideal, but I was only spending 7 hours a night in it so I didn't care too much.

Cleanliness. Very good. Rooms were serviced daily, towels changed on request, shared areas always tidy and clean. Bathrooms were very clean which surprised me. Hopefully that continues to be the case.

Location. Sensational! 10-15 minute walk from a white-sand beach, and you'll never pay more than €15 to get into town to the night club distric or Playa de Americanas for shopping. 20km from Tenerife South Airport means you'll pay no more than €30 for a cab.

Rooms. Nice and relaxing, if getting a bit dated. As I said, two singles pushed together in the junior suites, but the rooms are big. Separate section with a sofabed and coffee table, then the bedroom with a TV (channels in Englsh, Deutsche and Espanõl) and a balcony ranging in size from pretty big to huge. Two of us requested to be moved when able to rooms with sea views, and with full credit to the staff we were moved after two nights. The rooms with sea views are the ones to go for; waking up to the views the resort has is awesome. Bathroom consisted of twin basins, bathtub/shower.

Food. I loved it, but I'm not that fussy and I love seafood. Plenty of other non-seafood options though. Salads for lunch and dinner, fruit and a bug variety if breads for every meal, a roast meat of some description each day and night. For breakfast they had a chef available to fry eggs and make omelettes, lunch and dinner a chef to grill steak/skewers and fresh fish. On Fridays and Saturdays, they do a BBQ buffet by the lower pool and that was the food highlight for me. Desserts were fantastic; fruit, cakes and tarts, profiteroles, mousse, soon and so forth. The wines available for lunch and dinner were pretty good (had an average rosé though) and for coffee snobs, the coffee was alright. Oh, and champagne for breakfast!

Spa. Well, I didn't go looking for a spa, but the pools are awesome. Both enjoy views of the ocean, and have plenty of sun lounges. The lower massive pool has a bar so drinks are readily available. During the weekend it was busy and there was a shortage of umbrellas, but the weather was just so sunny the whole time. It's a small criticism, seriously.

I assume the spa section includes other facilities. Well, what I loved the most were the squash courts. They have two, and while not 100% perfect, for three aspiring elite players they were great facilities to have at our disposal. We took racquets with us but forgot balls (they have balls and I think they hire out racquets) and we played almost every day. Awesome. The "gym" is just a circuit machine and not really of much use; we could have done more with a bar and free weights, so maybe that would be a better direction for the resort to go; toss the machine. Pool tables are cool, but need to be re-levelled and some new cues and balls would be sweet. During the day some staff drum up activities to keep you occupied and, while a but silly, it was good fun. We participated in a few :-)

As a side note, there were plenty of families there, with young children too. But I would still recommend this resort for young and old couples. It didn't feel like there was a focus towards rowdy families or geriatrics; everyone was welcome and it wasn't wearying at all.

They do shows every night, for children and adults, ranging from dancing shows to exotic bird displays and acrobatics. Nice for a relaxing night in.

I am a single bloke, and holidayed with two couples I am friends with. We had three junior suites. Take your squash racquets and burn off those buffet calories!

Would I recommend it? Yes, definitely. Would I stay there again? For another lazy beach holiday in the south of Tenerife? Yes, definitely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view. I'm sure the staff will move you to one when it becomes availabl...

I booked this holiday as a surprise 50th for my husband and at the pointing of booking this I also requsted in the special instructions box for something to be there when we arrived at the hotel. On arrival there was nothing there for my husband but the hotel staff were well aware of the surprise as one made a comment saying he had reached 'half a century'. After arriving in our room considering i had paid extra for a junior suite all that was extra was a 2 seater sofa. We had a nice view out side our hotel room but we never actually made it to the pool as you had to catch 3 lifts just to get down there ! We found that after a couple of days of dining in the restaurant we established that the best time to eat was on a lunch time. If you are not that keen on fish then I certainly wouldn't recommend this hotel as Everymeal time was based around fish and piella. One morning when we decided to go for breakfast, the breakfast contained of bean sprouts, chips and another item that look something along the lines of a small marrow, which I can only assume would have been the left over stock from the night before. Then when I asked a waitress in the restaurant if I could have a coffee she just looked and turned away,I then went up to her to ask for a coffee at which point she just looked at me rolled her eyes and puffed, by this time it had been 20 mins just waiting for a coffee so just decided to help myself. The staff in the reception of the hotel where very helpful and very friendly but I found that the staff in the dining area didn't wish to help and I felt more of a hinderence than a guest.
One afternooon me and my husband decided to have a relaxing afternoon in our room and thought we would watch some television. My husband turned the tv on to realise every chanel was in spanish, when I queried this with reception to have the tv in English they told me it would be at a charge, I have been in a lot of hotels in different countries and at not any point have I had to pay to have a tv put into English.
Overall my experience of this hotel isn't brilliant and I certainly wouldnt recommend for you to visit this hotel in a hurry it would be a total waste of your money.

If you are looking for a relaxing get away from it holiday in Tenerife then choose this hotel.

Set up a hill the views are amazing, it is an easy walk into the resort if you can tear yourself away.

We choose to upgrade to a junior suite which was spacious, clean and more than adequate. The balcony was huge with the normal table and chairs as well as two sunloungers.

You could easily get a sunbed round one of the pools at anytime of day.

The restaurant always had something nice to eat and I am a very fussy eater.

The staff are very friendly from reception to restaurant to bar.

We spent every night at the 5th floor bar as we couldn't tear ourselves away from the view. Try the strawberry daiquiri gorgeous.

Overall a quiet hotel not alot of British guests but that did not bother us at all.

Hotel was fine , great view of the sea from the 7 th floor room was perfectly comfortable and clean. Breakfast and snack food was excellent but evening buffet needs more imagination, not sure would go all inclusive in a hotel that has one restaurant again. The meat in the buffet was often tough or fatty, we decided to eat out of the hotel 3 of our 7 nights. But on the plus side all restaurant staff as well as the rest of the hotel were brilliant , but over stretched , but not their fault.
The pool area was in need of a paint , so looked a bit shabby.
Snacks were bought around late morning and sandwiches / wrapps were available during the day in the top bar.

Seating in the bar was available but did not feel welcoming as very dark , not a great area to socialise and meet other people , there were seats outside which had great view, these filled up quickly so a bit of a lottery to get a seat.

Have stayed in Melia hotels that were better , this one had great views from its elevated possition ,it was a 15 minute walk downhill to the sea, but we knew this , so not a problem , but for older people may be

Still had a great holiday , sunny every day and just love Tenerife , will return to the island but not sure about this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayes in 2 junior suites on 7 th floor , lovely views of the pool and sea.

Lovely, friendly hotel, amazing views & the adult only sunbathing area excellent. I am a very fussy eater but found plenty to eat at all times. There are a lot of spanish people in the hotel so i thought that was a good sign that if the locals etc want to stay there then it must be good. We did have a blip to start with the room was at the back of the hotel overlooking the staff car park and the bins and also what looked like a dog kennels which was very noisy every morning when going onto the balcony, but we did eventually get used to the views etc and thought that it was probably pointless changing rooms as you spend so little time in it and the room itself was very large and clean.

the one thing i was very disappointed in was the maid waking us up every single morning of our holiday (8am every day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) the noise was unbelievable i cannot believe mopping a balcony could be soooooooooooo noisy!! i actually felt jaded most mornings because of it. I was so tired on the 5th day that i thought i would have a siesta!! unfortunately, the maid had not been in to clean the room and this was 3.30ish in the afternoon so i decided to put the do not disturb sign on the door (to be fair the room didn't really need cleaning) i had just nodded off when there was the bang on the door and the maid came in even with the sign saying that i did not want her to!!!!!!!!!!!!! i was fuming to be honest and had to go back outside whilst she cleaned the room. If you have a DO NOT DISTURB SIGN surely you DO NOT DISTURB that actually made me feel quite vunerable what if i had been ill!! etc that was definitely a big NO NO for me.

saying that i would go back again and i would recommend this hotel to anyone, great hotel, great views etc, the staff were brilliant if not a little run off their feet but always polite and always very busy to the point that you actually felt sorry for them they didn't get a minute EVER!

Just returned from a 5 day stay here, and being a MAS card holder I have stayed in quite a few of thier hotels, this one is tired and the staff seemed streched to capacity, one restaurant in the eveing is totally inadequate, and I had read that there was an adults only pool, still looking for that! Adult entertainment - still looking for that aswell, If you want a family holiday then I would say ok, but for a group of adults aged 50+ it really did leave a bit to be desired. I think we all sumed it up to say it lacked atmosphere. Would I return here - sorry no

Lovely hotel, placed a little away from everything, but with facilities to get around( free bus shuttle to the beach) Rooms are very big and cumfortable. Allhough double beds are two single put toghether, they are very wide. Good quality beds aswell as sheets and towels.
Very happy with the quality of the food at the main buffet. The pool food is not wonderfull, but it's Ok for a couple of times.
Staff very helpfull and polite, really nice to the guests.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a perfect holiday and doesn't mind driving to get around.
