“A little tired”
Reviewed April 10, 2006

We stayed at the Arona Gran for one night on our way back from La Gomera. To my mind the hotel was clearly quite flash when it first opened, but is now looking decidedly tired. The public areas are OK but a bit naff. On the plus side the pools are nice and there are plenty of comfy sunbeds. Our room had reasonable facilities and was clean, but again the furniture/decor was outmoded and a little tatty. I did notice that some rooms were in the process of being decorated so there may be improvements on the way. Although we had paid for a sea view room, we were put in a room at the side of the hotel looking out at a hideous tower block. We didn't have dinner at the hotel; as we had a very early flight we didn't get the full breakfast spread, but a continental breakfast was available. This was poor - the bread was like sawdust. Los Cristianos itself looks a bit tatty to me but it had a reasonable atmosphere. All in all the hotel was OK-ish as a stopover but I certainly wouldn't want to spend a whole week there.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in March for a week. We were very lucky with the weather but the hotel was also wonderful.
Notable points were:

Cleanliness: Better than some of our hospitals! Sheets changed regularly, even changed the night before we left.

Food: Excellend choice, champagne and smoked salmon at breakfast, no one should be disappointed.

Location: Wonderfully quiet but within easy reach of shops and restaurants.

Recommended to all.

Just returned from half term week at the Arona Gran, with my 14yr old daughter. Despite the timing, there was a distinct lack of children/teens and those there were very well behaved! The weather was poor but the hotel ambience and the attentive staff left us coming back home with the feeling of having had a lovely break. The hotel is rather expensive, but as another review states this does promote decent clientel. We did visit all the other 4 star Spring Hotels in Tenerife and found them to be equally as sumptuous and as a result we plan to stay at the 'Bitacora'on our next visit. Stays at the other hotels are much less expensive, whether that's because there are more staff/waiters at the Arona Gran and/or its location, I am unsure, but the waiter service in the restaurant and the bars was extremely good, without being intrusive.
Faults? well there was no fresh orange at breakfast time! having said that there was fresh tomatoe juice and the choice of food both at breakfast and dinner was plentiful. The bedroom overlooking the pool was disappointing, it was a bit 'shot at' and plenty of scuffs along the 6th floor corridor and cleaners swept rooms out onto the carpetted landing (so we were greeted with the previous clients 'mess' on the entrance to our room on arrival!) However the room was cleaned well on a daily basis.
