Friendly service, clean rooms, convenient free parking in underground garage, ok spa/gym/pool/sunbathing facilities. Rooms are drab and in bad need of a total makeover. Beds are hard and uncomfortable. Breakfast is nice enough, but nothing special, and the choice of fruits and vegetables is disappointing. The location inside the Doramas park is peaceful and beautiful, but the local area around the hotel is boring with nothing much going on at all. You will depend on taxi (ca. 4-5 EUR) to go to the Vegueta/Triana area or the Canteras beach - walking takes 20-30 minutes along streets that are not particularly pedestrian friendly. Despite the shortcomings, the hotel still maintains a certain grandeur and style, and seems to be frequented mainly by middle-aged to elderly, well-to-do locals and foreigners. If you prefer a party atmosphere, or to wear your flip-flops and bermudas everywhere, this may not be the hotel for you.
