The Grand Hotel El Tope may have been grand ten years ago, now it is tired! Thread bare carpets wallpaper hanging off the walls and a general feeling of neglect.
The staff on the whole were very polite and always obliging. The breakfast and dinner food was always plentiful with a wide choice, but never hot.. Sad as it could so easily be Grand again with some money spent on it! Would I return ... No. Would I recommend it.. No. There is a wide choice of other hotels in the town offering better and more up to date facilities with a better range of entertainment.
The town itself was attractive with a wide selection of bars and eating establishments. Taxis are very plentiful and cheap enough to get around in as the town has many steep hills. A visit to Loro Parque is a must for any visitors. The Orchid gardens whilst tranquil, offer few orchids that cannot be seen in Tesco's.
