My cousin and I stayed here from 5th-10th April 2014, B&B. Weather by day averaged at 22 degrees celcius and 15 by night. The airport you want is Tenerife SOUTH, 15-20mins max by cab costing 24/25 euro! (more pleasant than a transfer coach).
The hotel is clean, they have what you need in the rooms (towels, loo roll, hairdryer, equipped kitchen) and yes décor is a bit dated and that's not a complaint! We only slept and got ready in our room anyway. There isn't AC in this room, it was not necessary as we were in April but I think the summer travellers might think otherwise.
We had a studio room on the 7th floor (the roof) and it was so spacious! The roof area is shared with 5/6 rooms, with sun loungers. There are 3 pools all on the ground floor but they're quite small when compared to the amount of people staying at this hotel. We always went to the beach.
There have been complaints of cockroaches in other reviews and to clarify, they are outside and only come out after dark. If you leave your door open, then yes, of course they're going to go inside!
The breakfast was adequate - european bacon & sausage and beans, eggs, hams, cheeses, cereal, bread, cupcakes, croissants - quite a lot of choice and you get your monies worth!
You have to bear in mind that we only paid £122 each for the room!
The beach is very close to the hotel and there are good restaurants by the water. Our favourites were El Ferry, Bahia and Bombay Babu. You'll come across one of my favourite people on the beach, he'll be selling melon, bananas, pineapple, coconuts with a smile! Very juicy melons!
A huge downside is that the people selling sunglasses/jewellery won't leave you alone and we did find ourselves becoming quite angry with them because they're allowed to bother people while they're trying to enjoy a nice meal.
I couldn't have asked for a better five days away. We experienced happy waiters who made us feel like princesses and food that filled us to the rim! Definitely will be going back :)
