There are many positive aspects to this resort, most of which have been written about below and with which we concur. It is situated well in a quiet area of Los Gigantes with stunning views of the famous cliffs and out to sea towards La Gomera. (As nothing can be done about the high-rise hotel which dominates the whole area, there is no point in beefing about it, unless you are a vacationing planning inspector who may learn something from this tragic mistake.) But oh! The music! If only the management would think a little about what they are doing round the pool area. As any supermarket manager will tell them, the choice of music in a venue is crucial. Las Rosas hasn't quite understood this. There sit or lounge - sometimes beached - a clientele which is mostly - how can I put this politely? - of riper years. They are there to soak up sun, chill-out and read their books. Yet all day, and sometimes into the night, the speakers in the restaurant push out thumping disco music. This musical style is designed for 15-25 year olds dancing at 2 am. Its sole purpose is to thump at around 125 beats per minute to quicken the heart and make the juices flow. Brilliant for an aerobics class, but it is not the music of choice for a relaxing day by the pool with the occasional dip into the water. If music is required at all (and why is it?) it warrants a much more thoughtful approach.
I shall say nothing of the live music in the evening. It simply wasn't to my taste, but I observed others were enjoying it.
