Rooms (Mountain View Suite):
-huge room complete with kitchen area, seating/TV area, bathroom, bedroom and balcony
-generally very clean apart from a few worn/moldy tiles that cannot be cleaned
-a big bed but not especially comfortable as there was 2 single beds pushed together
-the jacuzzi setting on the bath, when turned on, smelt like drains
-the shower head would only stay up and a certain angle and the temperature didn't hold very well
-the English TV channels were very limited to only 3 news channels
-such a large selection at every meal including hot meats, cold meats, pastas, salad, fruit, ice-cream, water, juices, tea, coffee etc
-we only had lunch in the restaurant once because the snack bar was so good and convenient (we loved the ice-cream)
-some of the food was a little odd, meatballs for breakfast for example, but i guess the hotel has to cater for all guests; the food was quite German orientated
-the food did become a little repetitive but that is to be expected when going all inclusive
-the orange juice from the drink machine was gross!
-both pools were beautiful, however we preferred the pool by the snack bar as it was central to the hotel and it's facilities i.e. food, drink, toilets etc
-there were plenty of sunbeds at all times of day
-great for both young and old
-at times there was a shortage of parasols
-i wasn't too keen on the fact the sun loungers were on grass as it would stick to your feet and, if your feet were wet, cause them to get muddy (i guess though this does stop people falling over if they have wet feet!)
-the animation team were great and very friendly. Although we didn't have children with us and didn't wish to take part in the activities they regularly advertised, there was plenty of opportunity for kids and adults to have fun and try news things i.e. water polo, tennis, stretching etc.
-the views were incredible everywhere
-the hotel had their own free shuttle bus, taking guests into puerto de la cruz, which was very handy
-there was a great variety of entertainment in the evening
-the weather, although a little cloudy in the mornings and a little in the afternoon, was perfect. Very hot, with a little wind.
-this wasn't a problem at all for us because we didn't go on holiday to necessarily make friends, but the guests were largely German and Spanish
-when we arrived the man working on reception spoke very little English which made it rather difficult to understand where to find our room etc, but we were given a piece of paper with lots of information written on it so this wasn't so much of a problem. I believe this is why many other people have reviewed the staff at the hotel to be rude, yet i believe they come across this way because their knowledge of the English language is limited
-the hotel isn't near anything at all as it sits on top of large hill/mountain. This didn't matter too much because we were all inclusive but, when we did venture down the hill one evening to lidl, we had to cross over a very busy roundabout which was rather interesting! ..as was the walk back up the hill!
-wifi was very expensive! $5 a day!
