The only thing that reminds you of a 4 star hotel is the room size. All the rest needs urgent and wholly refurbishment. The awards displayed in the lobby, awarded by famous tourist agencies stopped at the year 2008. Probably in that year investment in the hotel comfort stopped. The TV set is at least ten years old, smallest possible screen, the blankets are ripped, the chromium on the taps in bathroom are long ago gone and plastic underneath displayed. Some tiles on the floors move under your steps and so on. People I discussed with and that were long time customers of this hotel told me with regret about the times when the food choice was wide and gourmet oriented. To say the truth, the rooms are daily cleaned and despite the age almost everything is in good working order and there is always something to pick up to eat, but this is not enough. The strongest point of this place is its position: 15 minutes walk to the Tenerife island major attraction: The Loro Parque. The people are coming miles by coach to visit it (and it's worth at least a visit during your stay). The second strong point is that the main bus station is just a few hundred meters away, linking you with the whole island, at very affordable prices.
I have only best words about staff that were always ready to help in any way.
