Stayed her again for the third time - it continues to be excellent value for money, very clean and in a great location being near enough to the main shopping/restaurant area but far enough away to be quiet in the night. They have added a gym and a nursery.
My niggles were that we were again given a studio in the main tower block and only one lift was working for the whole two weeks leading to waiting for up to 5 minutes at times , also they are refurbishing the shops at the front of the hotel and creating a new play area for kids, this was obviously very noisy during the day, hopefully this will be completed by the time any of you reading this who are going to stay there. First choice who we booked with failed to tell us this, but worse was to happen with first choice when the return taxi journey I had booked with them to the airport failed to turn up, leading to me having to get a frenzied taxi from the street to make our plane. So if you want to avoid the long coach transfers then get one of the local taxis which should only be 25 euros each way.
Anyway, the pool has plenty of room with loads of Sunbeds, it is salt water and ball games and diving are strictly forbidden, ideal for me who just wants to relax and have the occasional swim to cool off and it got up to 43 degrees.
If you have plenty of money then the restaurants in the main area outside will suit all tastes, if like me you are on a budget, head towards Los Christianos and you will find loads of restaurants offering 3 courses for 8 euros and 1 euro for a large beer and the food is actually very good.

Room Tip: Try and get a pool view away from the tower

We chose this hotel based on reviews on we most certainly not disappointed.

We booked directly with the hotel. We asked them for a sea view room high up.

So the night of arrival. It was about 10.30pm when we got to the hotel. Reception were friendly and smiley. He asked us to pay then. For some reason our card did not work! What a nightmare. BUT the reception man actually was going to let us go to our room and pay the next day. we decided to go and get the money out of a cash machine. But were most pleased he was not pushy and was willing to let us stay without having paid up.

We walked into the room. We had got a studio apartment. Well it was everything we'd hoped for. Lovely little kitchen, with everything you need. Clean kitchen, clean bathroom, clean everything! Reasonable sized bathroom. With a bidet! The overall bathroom and kitchen are not "modern" style. but as long as you know this before you go its not a problem because it IS pleasant and clean.

The beds again you need to know before you go are twin beds. We just simply pushed them together. and when you're warm lets face it its nice to have some space. there was some extra blankets as well because I get cold at night.

Onto the living room. We had a double sofa bed (so if you want to sleep on a double bed you can anyway). this was comfy. There was also a rocking chair. A lamp on a table. A dining table and chairs. A chest of drawers with a flat screen telly. Oh and very expansive wardrobes that lock!

There's a safe too.

The tv didn't have too many English channels but if you work out how to switch between cable and Air there are more! I believe we got bbc and ITV and a few others.

The balcony! Well what a lovely surprise. A round plastic table and chairs and 2 sun loungers. A lovely garden in the wall at the end with plants in.

We were overviewing the pool and sea. What a stunning panoramic view! admittadly not as high up as requested but absolutely not a problem because it was stunning.

On arrival we also had fruit bowl with bananas and oranges and a bottle of white wine.

While there it was my boyfriends 30th. I told staff because i was secreting some cake with them to leave in our room while we were out. But they also left a sweet note and a bottle of cava for him. The reception lady that organised this was friendly every time we asked her anything. Infact all the staff were brilliant. Our room maid was friendly (did not speak english) and did a great job.

we had a cockroach twice, and ants once. Just to give a fair review i need to mention the baddies.

So on to the pools. The heated pool was a god send. I am an utter wimp! You're not really meant to have lilos etc which i did find a little sad because i love a good lilo! the other non heated pool was slightly bigger and both were lovely. Clean, blue and nicely shaped with a shallow entrance "beach" style.

We never had a problem once getting a sunbed. there was only the odd fool who found it necessary to get up at 6 and lay towels out. There really is no need whatsoever here. We went at 10, at 1, at 3 and never ever had an issue. Always got a decent location.

Theres also a little chill out area near the pools and these seats are very comfy and fit 2 on.

We did not try the restaurant by the pool. It looked pricey for what it was. Infact we didnt try any of the restaurants at no. 4. We did eat at some of the Parque restaurants though like the Italian opposite the reception and we did not rate this!

In reception there is also a great internet area. Reasonably cheap. and fast.

The supermarkets are expensive. surprisingly so! Be prepared.

I think overally there is barely any critisim on this hotel or location. It is a ten minute walk from los christianos and a 10 minute walk to playa dal las americas. It is in a nice area with nice shops and restaurants.

Do note this hotel is extremely quiet. Factor this into your decision. We were surprised by the lack of activity. for example noone is out by the pool after 7pm. The bar is shut! we thought there might be a bbq night or some life. there isn't. If you want life you have to leave the hotel. This was fine for us but it is worth noting. It is true that no. 3 is far more lively and they have singers and what not in the shpping centre on a night.

For a romantic break me and my partner recommend wholeheartedly.

hotel absolutely covered all that we had hoped for, only slight problem with building work going on at front of hotel, but to enjoy you have to have the facilities, the little ones will love this new addition. xxxxxx night time entertainment you cant not go past the patch as it has every thing there and you will have to call in to Roxy;s the Blaydon races. The best places to eat is El Cedros but it is also nice and cheep to eat at the Mc Guinness bar in the opposite direction along the beach

my room was 613 and i was quite happy with it. The room is cleaned everyday. Nice views of the sea and town. All mod cons including a safe in your room which is an extra 30 euro. There is one lift to all floors 7 being the top floor. The lift is ok but so slow that most of the time i walked to the 6th floor which is ok. There is free wifi in the reception so don't forget the iphone or ipad. You can also use one of 5 computers for 2 euro for 20 minutes. This hotel is situated next to a lovely sea front with everything you could possibly want nearby. The area is fairly pricey. Think london prices for everything. However if you take a short walk along the see front in the direction of los cristianos or puerto colon things get cheaper! The blue cactus for example does a full english breakfast and a drink for less than 3 euro's. Its very nice to! If you choose this hotel then you have choosen well. The pools are brilliant and you get to go in both parque santiago 3 and iv pools. I preferred 3 as its slightly bigger. Oh and siam park is a must! 10 mins on the bus or 30 mins walk. Enjoy.

We went to parque Santiago 4 last year in July and booked with clear blue seas. We booked an apartment with a sea view, the scenery was great. The room was very nice and clean, with the cleaners coming in regularly throughout the week. The swimming pool was great, with lots of sun beds around, and was great for children. The beach was just a 5 minutes walk, which was very helpful. The bars and restaurants was a short walk away, which we regularly used! Andy at clear blue seas was very helpful in recommending the hotel and sorted it all out for us. I highly recommend booking with clear blue seas for future holidays.

Stayed here june this year and had a brill time. Apartments cleaned every day and no bugs. Cleaners very friendly and helpful. Nice touch with the bottle of wine, basket of fruit and bottled water on arrival in apartment. Property has security guards and feels very safe. Nice pool area. Quite quiet when we were there as families tend to use the pool at no III. Nice area with plenty of designer shops and clubs and bars.
Would highly recommend this property

Had a great time at Parque Santiago IV. Went with three other guys and had a great experience. The apartments are spacious, cleaned daily with no insects. Our balcony had room for 2 large loungers as well as a table and chairs. The view looked out onto the pool and was fantastic.

I would advise those who wish to socialise around 10pm-12am on their balcony to ask not to be put beside or near families with young children. There was no need for air conditioning although let the staff know if your fan is a bit weak as other rooms we went to had a less powerful fan than ours. There are security guards and our belongings were safe. Cleaners are polite and helpful. Rooms bug free.

Staff were very friendly and always looked to help. Pool at Santiago IV was quieter and kid free due to the popularity of Santiago III which has mini slides for kids. You are able to go to either III IV or V.

Pool bar was rather expensive but food was decent. Better going to the supermarket next door for drinks. Internet was 1 euro for 10 mins but had free wifi if you bring your own laptop/phone.

Food was excellent, with a range of quality restaurants as you head towards Los Cristianos. There are also very good places to eat as you head towards the main strip. We ate breakfast (brunch) at Christy's bar situated at the far end of the strip as they did a good quality english breakfast. Mamma Mia or the Thai restaurant up from the fountain at park santiago V for a good dinner.

Tenerife has something for everyone and was an excellent experience. I will be back and would definitely be happy to lodge in Parque Santiago IV. You'd have to have severe depression not to enjoy your stay here!
