“Enjoyed my time at Granada Park”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Travelled on 14/08/13 for 10 nights. Read mixed reviews when booking and bad reviews after, so felt very anxious. Accommodation spacious and clean, as was the pool area. Sunbeds are an issue everywhere so I don't think it's fair to comment on this matter. We had a thoroughly enjoyable 10 days there. The entertainment organiser Miguel works tirelessly all day with poolside games/quizzes, water polo etc and by being a compare in the evening. He engages newcomers by encouraging them to join in pool tournaments etc. No one will go hungry here. It is not five star but every effort is made to please residents food wise. The restaurant was well staffed and clean. It's a family orientated complex so the entertainment catered as such, being mainly animal and dancing shows with karaoke in the mix. I met families who had returned there several times. We are all different and have different expectations. I met some lovely people there and have some happy memories ... Hope this helps others when making a choice. We are a family of 4 mum/dad and two boys of 13 and 9 and were fully inc.

first of all I have to say that the rooms where great, very spacious and clean, however the ceiling fans where useless but we could cope with that. so on to the holiday - all in all we had a nice time BUT the entertainment was awful, there was not enough sun beds for everyone and the cherry on the cake, we came home with Salmonella . need less to say we will NOT be returning here.

So, booked this holiday and then read all these bad reviews so we were not going with high expectations.


Food = terrible – we only ate in the restaurant (school canteen) for dinner twice and one of the nights we went out for another meal, breakfast was the same every morning – average, coffee was good though! We didn’t bother with lunch, didn’t see the point in giving ourselves more to be disappointed about.

Pool = Over crowded, there are far too many people for the size of the pool and amount of sunbeds, no long lies in these apartments if you want a sunbed.

Drinks = I’m sure that what they were serving was non-alcoholic the beer was weak and so were their wines. The juice was cold and fizzy but pretty sure it was not the real deal with the coke and Fanta’s.

If we thought this wasn’t bad enough, on our third day we went to the pool at around 3pm just to chance a sunbed (this is usually when a few people with young kids leave the pool), we had been away to a spa in the morning to try to relax as you can’t get a good night’s sleep in these apartments, beds are not comfy and the so called air-con (an old fan on the ceiling) makes a racket through the night. We were out the room 1 hour max, we were charging a couple of our electrical’s to take with us to the pool so we didn’t want them being out too long. On returning to the room at 4pm to collect them we discovered we had been burgled. This was the only time on the whole holiday that we had not put them in the safe. Clothes everywhere, I phone stolen, galaxy tablet stolen, a watch all chargers that were lying about not just for the stuff that was stolen but for everything we had, all money that was in the pockets of any shorts my partner had had on in the previous days. They has got in through the bathroom window, you could see the damage on it.

We looked to the receptionist (the male one) for some help and we got well if you want we can move your room, it’s up to you. Of course we moved rooms and asked him to call the police – his response ‘it is not my complaint you will need to call them yourself’ and we were handed a number to call – even though our phone had been stolen. He did allow us to use his phone in the office. We then had to go to the police as they would not come to us.

You really have to ask yourself how on earth did the person who broken in know that we had left out the electrical’s at this 1 hour – I’m not buying that it’s a coincidence, we had a surprise visit from a maid that exact morning, not to clean our room as this was yet another problem, clean towels only twice in the whole week we were there, but to just fill her bucket! How often are they letting their selves into apartments as and when they want?????

After this we only left our room to eat, not in their restaurant. We were not asked at any point how we were or if they could help us in any way.

We went to check the room that we were originally in before we left to find that it was business as usual and the window wasn’t even fixed – god help whoever gets room 150.

All in this was not a holiday, we have come home feeling more stressed and in need of an ACTUAL holiday – but due to the money we spent booking this holiday then the extra we had to spend to eat well and what we had stolen there is no chance of this happening this year.

We feel let down that we were sold this holiday and that travel agents clearly do not research hotels/apartments prior to taking people’s hard earned money!!!!!

If you have the unfortunate luck to have booked these apartments then you should definitely try the Aqua Club Termal Spa in Costa Adeje, the staff is all very nice and it is perfect for relaxing and de-stressing. We visited several times.

Just spent a week at Granada park and enjoyed it. The apartment was very big and spacious.nice big balcony with views of the pool which is very pretty at night. Only draw back is there is no air conditioning and it is very hot at night. It is situated a little out of the way but taxis are only about 5 euros. But the complex is very relaxed and staff friendly.the sunbirds are an issue as you have to be up about 7am to get one as towels are left on them. The food was good and we always found something to eat and the staff would make things on request for special needs at the end of the day it's 3 star and you get what you pay for . No food was under cooked and there was plenty of variety. Only issues was flys but you get them anywhere . The entertainment was ok I have seen better the kids enjoyed the animal shows and Miguel in charge of entertainment. We would return for the relaxed atmosphere that's ehat a holiday is all about .

We were booked into Granada Park by an agent and had only briefly researched it. This is a big complex on a hillside above Los Christianos. Not particularly easy to reach and we had to search for some time before finding the right exit from the main road. Parking is difficult and only available on a public road below the complex. Surrounding area on the south side is grim.
After check in we had to struggle with our luggae because of the hill and steps. Although there are lifts if you can find them. Our apartment overlooked the swimming pool and bar area. Generally attractive and clean. There was only a bottle of water in the apartment and as we arrived late the local shop was closed. We did find the site self-service restaurant which is good and quite cheap if you are not on full board. Our main complaint is that the apartments were not airconditioned - just a ceiling fan; there were too many steps and worst of all; the bar area /pool played loud banging music for 12 hours a day from 1100 to 2300. Suitable for younger families or young people but not for pensioners.

Read the reports on here and felt I needed to check this out. Firstly the walk is 15 minutes to the lovely fishing village of Los Cristianos. To complain there is no air conditioning once you arrive and about the heat in August, seems slightly strange. Firstly Tenerife is close to Africa and is going to be hot in August and secondly if you particularly wanted air conditioning , then surely you would have booked a hotel/apartment that had air conditioning.

I then checked out the "pink chicken". Thought no restaurant would serve under cooked chicken because of the consequences. The "pink chicken" was actually conejo, - Rabbit. Rabbit is one of the most staple meals for the Canerians.

The couple that stayed in Apt 251, failed to mention it was a Penthouse Apartment, that had a wrap around balcony that gave views of the fabulous mountain range that change colours throughout the day. Also had views to Los Cristianos and Playa Las Americas, the sea and La Gomera, the smaller island. There is also light switches outside every apartment.

The natives of this island are Canarian, and not Spanish, they speak Spanish,and most of the restaurant and cleaning staff do not speak English.

I think the saying is " you get what you pay for" and I believe this is the case here.

We arrived late but where told we could still go and have something to eat, room was up by the reception and had the best view of the hotel and Los Crist The room is really big and has fridge freezer toaster cooker but no kettle so just boiled water in a pan, the bath room is big and never seen any bugs and always hot water. The balcony was massive with a table chair and drying area. We had ceiling fans that re-paddle the hot air but slept with doors open at night. The pool area was clean and a nice size so you can sit and watch your kids have fun we always had longer and only ever put towels down at about 9/10 while we had breakfast as not bothered where we where as not a massive area. Food is fine there is always somethink to eat and even tried dishes I would not normally eat as you can always go back for other food. The breakfast was what u would expect for 3 star, and if you wanted toast you will have to but it under the night before which is the same everywhere. The bar food is chips hot dogs pizza and rolls and you can help your self to coffee/ juice machine, if you want coke and alcohol you have to que at the bar. The entertainment was an hour of animals you can then have your picture with form 10/20 euros which you collect the next day from reception, free bingo then a show. One night they had a singer who worked there singing and it was so funny as she was really bad, everyone was laughing and asking for more so if you are on your look out for her as not to be missed. The people who worked there where helpful and nice Migual the entertainer was so good with the children. We got taxis to Sian park and to both beaches but only a couple of euros as too hot to walk round in the day, the worse bit would be some of the guest and the kids would it kill you to bin your cups and keep the swearing down

Room Tip: There are different levels of rooms the roof terrace look really nice
