We had a fantastic holiday overall and the only complaints we had were minor irritations that did not spoil our holiday.
The beach was awesome, I loved it and spent a lot of time walking on it in both directions. The waves at times can be a bit daunting, however, they have fun police, sorry lifeguards who operate a flag system to tell you when it is safe to swim. It was always safe to mess about close in but be warned when the flags are red there can be a strong undertow. Naked people occasionally, further along the beach, but no problem just look away if you can stop yourself laughing!!
Sunbeds are a problem almost everywhere I have stayed. Thankfully, I never had a problem finding one at the Tres Islas when I needed one, which wasn't that often because I preferred the beach! Two beds and a brolly 9 euros. However, we frequently commented on how sad people must be to rush down in the middle of the night to lay there towels on a bed, personally I don't go on holiday to do this and I pride myself in never having done it. We got up really early once to go on a trip and found lots of people running around at 0630 in the morning to select there favourite spot, and they were certainly not all Germans, contrary to popular belief. If this had been a problem I would have been the first to complain to the manager and insist that some ones towels were removed if they been in place all day without being used!!!
The Hotel entertainment was pretty much what you would expect from the Canaries/Med and we enjoyed having a couple of beers with the entertainment as a pleasant back drop. Bar prices were bit expensive I guess. A pint of German beer was 4 euros, whereas in town a pint of Spanish beer was 3 euros with a similar standard of entertainment. Taxi into town cost about 6-8 euros each way! (You do the Math).
Food was really good and I certainly never went hungry. (I think I put on about 6-7 pounds) All the waiters were friendly and I was always treated very well and made to feel welcome in the restaurant and in the bar.
We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the Dunes. So glad I didn't pay for a sea view. We had Sun on the balcony in the afternoon, nice sunsets in the evening and a side sea view. Yes it got a little windy sometimes but the Hotel does not control the weather.
Would we go again? Definately! Loved the Beach location and easy access into town if you needed something a little more busy.
