I am currently staying here. 7 nights in on a 9 day break.
Perfectly situated on the beach and in the sea. After reading all the reviews of how dated it is here, I disagree totally.
Okay there's no plush granite glossy black marble everywhere, but it is spotlessly clean bright and airy. The staff are so friendly, the setting is just perfect to relax. All week I've sunbathed on the terrace, until I was too hot, then walked down the stainless steel steps into the sea and climbed back up them to sun bathe again... Perfect. My mother and father, daughter and son in law are all staying on this break, el medano has everything for all of our ages, so we are all happy on hols.
Rooms are cleaned every day of you wanted.. . Cleaners are lovely ladies and all work very hard. I like to give them a break by not having them make my bed and change my towels every day.
One of the days, I walked over to the hotel sur tenerife.. Now this place is still internally set up in the 1960s. Not a patch on this one.
The only negative I can find with this hotel, is the food is not good at all. There's no love cooked into the food.. Being a chef myself I will always have a good go with any food, I couldn't make a meal up in This hotel unfortunately.
I would suggest booking just board or b and b.. Although the breakfast hot food selection isn't great either. Its such a shame, because the bar food served all day is fantastic, and cooked with love.
One more thing was there's no heating or air con.. Although the weather in Jan is just right.. 23 to 27 degrees we've had all week.
I would definitely return to this hotel.
Thank you hotel medano for making us feel welcomed.
