We stayed as a family of 5 at this 3 star hotel during the Christmas period. We normally stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and we were stunned at how lovely our family apartment was - 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a huge kitchen and lounge and two balconies, one with sunbeds and the other with table and chairs.
We stayed in room 124 overlooking the pool from the left hand side. The right hand side accommodation gets no sun during the day so request the left. There is everything on site, supermarket, shop, sports bar (Kaygans) - special mention to Steve and Amy who were so hospitable. The hotel's restaurant is also lovely and we had a magnificent Paella in there the first night we arrived.
A few games going on each day led by Marco who also dressed as Father Christmas on Christmas Day and made it a day to remember for all the children.
We went self catering but ended up eating in the Hotel restaurant - 5 Euros for an adult and 2.50 Euros a child - brilliant value. Food and drink in all local restaurants very cheap.
Special mention has to go to the Balti India Restaurant in the square near the hotel - a fantastic meal and again very cheap and also Stellas.
THE ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT was when we visited the restaurant "Totem" on Christmas Eve when we ended up sending back seafood (rubbery mussels and inedible king prawns). We complained they were not fresh to which the reply was "We don't sell fresh seafood here!" This was our most expensive meal and they then took the liberty of adding 7% service charge which no other restaurants we visited during our stay chose to charge.
Apart from the fiasco with restaurant Totem we had a fantastic stay which was enhanced by such beautiful sunny weather during our visit (19-26 December). Thanks to all the staff at the Marino Tenerife who made us so very welcome.
Costa Del Silencio is very cheap - 1 Euro for a pint of beer and
