Stayed here 21-28 December 2012. Wanted to get away from the UK for Christmas and knew that this hotel catered mainly for families, but that didn't pose a problem for us being a mature couple (those that have submitted reviews moaning about the number of kids maybe should have read the hotel description a bit more closely....!)
This is a large hotel situated on a rocky promontory several miles from the nearest large resort (Playa de los Americas), but there is a free courtesy bus. There is a small development of shops and bars in Playa Paraiso, however, which will suit those that really must get their daily dose of UK football, papers, John Smiths etc....
Hotel was very clean, and the staff are exceptionally friendly and well-trained. Food was very varied and designed to suit a wide range of nationalities - this hotel seems quite popular with German guests who, with the Brits, seem to make up the majority.
Only real downside for us was the entertainment - it is a bit lacking, and clearly aimed at families. There is a loely nightclub facility which only seems to be used for family shows up to about 11pm, and on some nights we saw the dj playing music with nobody in the place at all! weird...!
As we were there over Christmas, there was a special menu laid on for Christmas day, and the staff pushed the boat out to provide something special - a huge range of hot and cold food, including turkey and beef carvery, even caviar for those that wanted it!
Bar service was excellent - hotel was fairly full but we never had to wait more than a minute or two to get served. Good range of drinks on the all inclusive tariff too.
