We stayed at the hotel for a week beginning of October and very much enjoyed our stay. Its obviously not a tourist resort but being the capital it has lots of lovely shops and bars and the harbour is very picturesque. We had a beautiful suite on the 15th floor with floor to ceiling windows with wonderful views of the sea and town looking onto the small boats. We could also watch the cruise ships coming in from our room which was amazing to see them lit up at night. Our room was kept very clean as was the whole hotel, apart from probably the windows but that wasn't a problem. You step straight onto a beautiful clean beach when you come out of the hotel.
The breakfast was lovely with plenty of fruit, pastries etc. and omlettes freshely made. We were half board and the dinner was nice, the salmon was especially tasty. My only gripe would be that the food was not always as hot as it should be, especially the chips, once again, not really a problem.
Everyone on reception was extremely helpful and spoke good english. The local buses run regularly and we visited Playa Blanca, Puerto Del Carmen and Teguise, all lovely places with lots to see and do. We also visited the Teguise market on Sunday, there is a bus which goes especially to the market but be aware, there is only one and it leaves to come back at 1.30 pm. Its the biggest market I have ever seen and very much well worth a visit. There are also dancers in their national dress which give a dancing show and 2 donkeys and 2 goats which you can see when you get off the bus, and they like a clap.
We had a lovely italian pizza and homemade chips just down from the hotel on the right hand side, highly recommended, sitting looking onto the beach, what a setting, its gorgeous.
My husband and I both had a spa treatment, highly recommended, the best we have ever had.
I would highly recommend staying at the hotel and would be very happy to go back.
