“Lovely winter holiday”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Just come back from 9 sunny days at the Tropical Playa over the New Year.We were a little worried when we booked as some of the reviews weren't that good ,but we thought we would see for ourselves.So glad we did!!!.The hotel room on the 7th floor had wonderful views and had just been re-furbished,the food was superb (and my Husband is really fussy),and the staff were wonderful without exception.We met up with some lovely people,the English were in the minority but that didn't bother us as we spoke to everyone,it was so friendly.There was dancing every night except one, to live music,it was like a party every night.The location is really good,within walking distance to Los Cristianos,Las Americas and Adeje.The bus garage is only a short walk away,where you can get a bus to anywhere on the island and the fares are really cheap compared to home.We would love to go back next New Year,price permitting.
Our thanks again to Jose,Marisol,Domingo and Gabriel to name but a few(sorry if I missed anyone-you were all lovely) for a great holiday.Feliz Ano Neuevo (can't spell in Spanish)

Room Tip: Try and get a room on 6th or 7th floor as they have been re furbished,and the views are wonderful

Stayed one week in december - dubbleroom with all inclusive. Room newly renovatet, excellent sea view, big terrace. Better than to expect. Food well prepared and very varried and pretty good mix for a buffet. Very tastefull.The AI concept is better than many other places. God entertainment every evening. Staff quit reservatet but polite. Little, but well equiped fittnessroom. God pool. Location very central and pretty quiet for a tourist location like Playa de las Americas. All in all realy good value for money. We would chose this hotel again - absolutly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the upper part of the hotel - the view is great.

We were here 11th-21st of Nov. The room we were given on the 6th floor was nothing like the pictures on the website. They were better. We had a fridge which was great for the bottled water, wine and beer. Pool was very cold but there were plenty of sunbeds. The food was great, didn't have any complaints at all. The cleaner for the rooms was lovely and always had a cheery "ola". I had a manicure whilst there and I can say it was 1 of the best I have had and only 12 euros. The Wigan Arms bar just around the corner was very good and had the advantage of free wifi. I would recommend this hotel. The bathroom was lovely, clean towels every day and a very powerful shower.

my wife and i stayed at this hotel on 12/11/2013.we booked a self catering holiday with holidaygems.our room was clean,however,we had no cooking facilities or kettle.in fact when i inquired at reception i was told they only did room only.so we couldn,t even have a cup of tea.the receptionist was uninterested and quite abrupt.the pool was about 100 yards from the socalled poolside bar which closed at 5o,clock.all in all we were very disappointed with the whole experience.we,ll never go back there again.

Rooms a little dated but clean, view from balcony great, food very good for an all inclusive rump steak 2 nights. breakfast very good. Drinks good help yourself from the optics , bottles always being refilled, staff very friendly apart from lady and gent on reception who were a bit abrupt. would go again. Quite close to beach etc. This is one of the best all inclusive we have been to and we have been to many. It was great having no children running about. Evening entertainment ok. Karaoke nght rubbish as man doing karaoke just wanted to do all the singing himself. The hotel is more equipped for over 40's.

Room Tip: for a view 3 floors upwards

I went on holiday on 16th Sept 2013 with my wife her sister and her husband ,we are all in our early 60s and we all had a very nice holiday.The hotel has its own car park and in a flat area,It is suitable for guests with mobility problems.The decor of the hotel is perhaps a little outdated but air conditioned and very clean,staff very helpful and friendly,entertainment every night but aimed at an international audience so perhaps not for everyone.Close to beach and many bars offering standard Las Americas entertainment.Pretty standard all inclusive terms and conditions,food good,plenty of sunbeds available .

We are a couple in our 60's, we found the hotel excellent, the rooms were very clean, cleaned everyday, food was also excellent, different variety every day, good location and not too noisy, I don't know how some people can complain about this hotel, we arrived there on 30 Sept for a week, would definitely go back, was excellent value for money.
