Stayed in spring 2013. Thought about booking again because that price was
Right at 480(2pp) one bedroom for 2
Weeks.
Sadly a similiar booking for 2014 resulted in the price going from
£35 a night to between £56-75
Per night.

I did enjoy my stay. The hotel is well
Situated for beach access, shops,
Many restaurants are nearby and
There is a well stocked grocery store
Accross the street.

The pool area is large and well
Maintained.

The rooms are cleaned daily
But consider that they are basic.
I am no expert on star ratings but
Based on other places i have stayed
I would rate it closer to 3 with the 4
Being reserved for places with modern
Rooms, better beds, included services.

I gather that the popularity has allowed
The property to increase its prices but
Consider that in the £70 range there
Are nicer places to stay. The sol dacil
AI is only £56 a night on a side note.

Been to tenerife countless times and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else but parque santiago 3. Location is superb, staff so friendly and the pool is the best on the island. If you like the safari side of playa de las Americas then do yourself a favour and stay here. You won't regret it.

Just back from park Santiago 3. Place was crawling with ants. Now I've been all over the world and seen some nasty beasties and understand that heat brings them out in droves. But I found these ants in the kitchen cupboards crawling all over the crockery that at best was very grubby. Cleaners not doing their jobs. The beds were terrible. And the decor in the rooms were dated. No aircon unless you wanted to pay 60 euros for a portable unit. Staff were quite unhelpful would never go back. Stay away from this one people.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed at Parque Santiago 3 for a week mid November 2013. Had a room in La Nina block which overlooks the main street, directly above Bier Pinte restaurant/pub and just over the road from Bershka. Next door was the huge Mare Nostrum complex, which was shut at the time and being converted to a hard rock café.
The room at night was very noisy there was no chance of sleeping before the live music and singing in Bier Pinte stopped. However we really enjoyed listening to the nightlife and watching the crowds below, and liked to sit on the balcolny sipping a sangria or glass of wine or two! We are young at heart though and pretty up for a party, If you wanted a peaceful room this wasn’t it..
The apartment itself had a mini kitchen with hob, oven, fridge and plenty of utensils etc. You could actually cook a real meal here if you so wished unlike most self catering where you only get a tiny hob. There was also an open plan living area with TV, dinning table 4 chairs, 2 wicker style armchairs and a (broken) sofabed.
As separate bedroom contained the usual 2 singles pushed together and plenty of wooden wardrobe and cupboard space. There were ceiling fans in the living area and bedroom and these were sufficient to keep us cool at night or in the day – I don’t think it would be ok in the high summer though and there is no AC.
The buildings, pool, sunbeds and general upkeep at Parque Santiago (and much of the local area) is excellent. There are 2 pools: a very large freeform pool un heated (19-20 degrees – very cold!) and a smaller but still fine sized heated pool at (25 degrees which was still a bit cold). You could use the pools at Parque Santiago 4 too, and they were roughly the same layout except the heated pool was a lovely 29 degrees so much nicer.
Found all restaurants and bars at PS3 and 4 to be expensive. For example at the beach side snack bar it was 4 Euros for a large beer. Yes 4 euros. There are a few 1.5 euro per pint deals around in the day but if its raining or cloudy they take the signs away for these. In general we found Tenerife to be expensive, roughly the same as uk prices. Pint: 3-4 eu, main course 10-20eu, starter 7-15eu, desert 5-10eu, Wine c.15 eu per bottle. So we ate breakfast and lunch in the apartment every day and went shopping from Hiper Dino supermarker which was very reasonable: 2 litre Sangra 1.5 euro, beers 80c. I’m sure part of it is just inflation and bad exchange rate but it really seemed much more expensive than a Greek island. And, cost aside, there were not those little value touches which made you feel you had value for money. For example in many greek tavernas you get a ‘free’ dip and bread and a shot or small bottle of Raki after dinner. None of that here. We struggled to find romantic restaurants and didn’t really like the shopping centre atmosphere of most of the commercial centres in the evenings.
That said we did find some areas that suited us for evening meals: San Telmo CC and Los Christianos both of which had romantic restaurants with reasonable ish prices. It’s a nice walk along the pedestrianized beach road to both of these about 10 minutes to San Telmo and 20 mins to Los Christianos. We ate at Habib (Lebanese) and Sama Sama (Italian) both of which were excellent with a nice candle lit atmosphere overlooking the beach. After dinner we enjoyed a glass of wine at InmoCafe and chatted to the very nice owner.
We found the Looky looky men, Chinese street sellers, rose sellers, hair braid women etc not threatening but pretty annoying. You have to be aware that these people are wandering around with their eyes wide open and if you are too drunk or leave you bag open then you know what’s happening next. If you have kids they particularly target them so that they ‘want’ the electronic gadget/watch/hair braid etc and of course once your kid has taken something you will be stuck paying for it. I think this is fair enough on the street but for some reason these street people are allowed into restaurants and bars which just doesn’t seem right. Maybe some kind of mafia thing? Who knows. Anyway like I said they were not threatening and as long as you ignored them most of them were fine. The odd one forced you to make eye contact before leaving you in peace, as if to say: I am a person and I am not leaving until you look me in the eye..
Weather was very nice, like a perfect British summer day every day! 28 in the day which felt like 30something in the sun, 21ish at night which is jeans and long sleeved shirt for a man and a light jumper for the ladies. Very nice weather. No need for aircon but ceiling fan was used every night. Sitting on the balcony at night we would wear a hoody. I was surprised at how enjoyable this mild temperature was as I normally choose to holiday in really really hot places and bake in the sun.
In conclusion: Tenerife: great place, great weather, very civilised. PDLA: BIG, not the most romantic, not cheap, but clean, well maintained, a proper European town with proper pavements and roads. Parque Santiago: showing its age a bit but very well kept, nice apartment, can be noisy, very big complex, lovely salt water pools. Really enjoyed it and will definitely consider going back but next time will know what to expect and be prepared!

Reception is quick helpful courteous and pleasant.
On opening the door to the apartment we were confronted with a large bowl of fresh fruit and a half bottle of wine!!
Our room report is based on a one bedroom apartment. We had an artificial grass floored patio with a table, four chairs and two sun beds. This area was kept spotless on a daily basis. The 'lounge' had a sofa/bed, two easy chairs, four dining chairs and dining table. The free to use tv is on the wall in this room. The kitchen area is open plan to the lounge and has a fridge with ice box, cooking hob with oven underneath .Plenty of cupboard space is provided and an acceptable food preparation area. Cooking utensils,crockery,glassware is comprehensive and in very good condition as is the cutlery. The bathroom is a good size and has an over bath shower,bath,toilet bidet and wash basin. All in excellent condition.
The bedroom has patio doors,plenty of drawers and wardrobe space together with a dressing table. We found the two single beds,which are placed together, very comfortable. Spare blankets are available.
Overhead fans are placed in the lounge and bedroom.
The apartment is cleaned to an exceptional standard on a daily basis.
We did not use the bar/restaurant area so can only say they appeared large and clean!!
We've never encountered a pool area with so many sunbeds and never had any problem in obtaining them. There are two pools, one being 'enormous' the other is a good size and heated. The whole area is kept extremely clean and the beds cleaned on a regular basis. Sunshades are plentiful.
Children appear to be adequately catered for.
