This hotel has an amazing location for a quiet relaxing holiday. The hotel staff are very friendly, the hotel is well docorated, the pool area is great, the spa is great and the rooms with a sea view are fantastic. This element of the holiday was definately 4*.
The food, the bars etc were however not 4* and I was very dissappointed with this. The only snack from the Pool Bar was a toastie (and only served until 1pm), the 'Afternoon Tea' was left over miniture pastries from breakfast, all hot drinks and juices are out of vending machines and do not taste overly nice, the buffet had a good select for one or two days but then it was the same food repeated - made worse by the fact that food served for the evening meal, was then served again for lunch the next day and vice versa (PS. I am not a fussy eater). The bar only served until 11pm.
Do not book a transfer with the holiday company. Taxi's in all the Canary Islands are well regulated and a good price. The taxi's for here are located directly outside the terminal, take 10 minutes to get to the resort and cost less then 15 Euros. Much cheaper then Thomson's £25 per head transfer cost.
This hotel for location, style and service is definately worth the money, but the catering needs bringing up to the price demanded for the holiday (and the 4* rating!).
