“A Most Enjoyable Holiday - Wonderful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Arriving late on a Friday evening to be greeted by Ricardo (Hotel Director) at reception set the scene for the rest of our holiday. Check in was very quick and efficient and we were shown to our room and all amenities explained before our luggage was delivered to our room.
The room was spacious and immaculately clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in. Bathroom with good shower and separate toilet. All you would need was provided in the room - soaps, shower gels, comb, toothbrush etc. Good sized fridge with complimentary water on arrival. The maid service was excellent throughout our stay with fresh towels and turn down service every night. The view we had was wonderful - full sea & pool view and able to sit on our balcony both during the day in the sun and in the evening and watch the sun go down.
We stayed B&B and the breakfast was wonderful - all you could ask for and more. Excellent quality of food with freshly made ommlettes. We were always up quite early and never found the restaurant busy at any time.
Sunbeds were plentiful and comfortable. Clean towels provided as required. Not too many problems with beds being reserved - but it still happened. Pool area was quite - just ideal for relaxing and reading your book. The beach bar ( accessed via a tunnel under the promenade) was also an excellent place to have afternoon drink and watch the surfers or watch the world pass by.
Service throughout the hotel was excellent. The maid service is worthy of special mention.
Outwith the hotel there was an abundance of good restaurants to suit all tastes all within easy reach. We did not see any entertainment in the hotel but plenty was available every night - again within easy reach of the hotel - some good quality others not so good quality.
All in all a most enjoyable break during which we celebrated a birthday and an anniversary. We will treat ourselves again to a holiday in Villa Cortes.

Room Tip: Sea view room are well worth the additional cost.

This was our first visit to Villa Cortes in early October 2012 and it certainly will not be our last. The hotel more than lived up to all our expectations and was full of character. The service in all areas of the hotel was exemplary. Our room was spacious, very comfortable, well appointed and quiet. The breakfasts were excellent and the "Mexican Evening" meal on the Saturday should not be missed. Having stayed in many hotels in all parts of Tenerife, this hotel must rate as one of the very best.

Room Tip: Select pool or sea view

Just returned from a weeks half board with my wife and daughter. A very upmarket quiet and peaceful hotel, very few English, mostly Russians and Germans and not many kids. This suited us as all we wanted was a relaxing quiet week with good food which exceeded my expectations especially the evening meal which was worthy of 5 stars, not your normal stampede buffet but a la carte table service. The Breakfast Buffet was plentiful and freshly made as you would expect from a hotel of this class. Our room was larger than normal as we had a sofa bed for our child, large 40 inch tv with plenty channels of all languages. A very large balcony with loungers, tables and chairs. The hotel has a perfect location and very central. Bad points ? Hard to think of much. Maybe fresh towels in the evening as most people shower in the morning and then again after sunbathing all day. Temp adjustment on the aircon would be good. Only one point i thought was not normal in a 5 star hotel which was room service breakfast trays or plates or maybe glasses and empty wine bottles left in the hotel corridor by the maids in the morning after cleaning the rooms. Most days they were still there early evening, Did not bother me personally but found it rather strange. I have been to Tenerife on a number of occasions and this hotel is probably the best one i have stayed in and will return on my next visit.

Just returned from another fabulous two weeks at Villa Cortes. This was our seventh visit and looking forward to going back again next year. There is nothing you could complain about. The staff are all very helpful and efficient. Especially David at the Beach Club who looks after all the customers extremely efficiently, even the difficuly ones!!

All credit to Ricardo, who runs the holel so efficiently and is totally focused on customer satisfaction.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon

My wife and I had a nice stay at Villa Cortes beginning of October. Our room was big with a nice balcony and a beautiful see view. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet was great.

The pool area was very nice, but crowded, probably because the beach next to the hotel was closed for renovation.

The hotel advertised that they had a fitness facility, but that is really a joke - 3 worn down fitness machines in a room in the back of the spa without air condition.
