Stayed here 7 to 14 November. This was my first solo holiday and I was very apprehensive but I needn't have worried. I am happy with my own company and was worried about anyone bothering me. Had emailed hotel a while before explaining and could I request a room not on the ground floor and with sunny balcony. I got a reply saying could not promise anything at that stage but my request was acknowledged. Got a room on the top, right at the front, with sunny balcony, albeit tiny. Tea, coffee making facilities in the room. Early bedder and early riser so was lovely to sit on the balcony with coffee and watch the sun come up and watch the early morning joggers along the promenade before shower and breakfast.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful from reception, restaurant, bar, pool bar and cleaning staff.
Food was OK, made a wrong choice one evening but that was my fault. Plenty of choice, pasta, rice, chips, salad, fresh cooked meat, just need to take time choosing. Don't normally eat sweet course but lovely ice cream and fruit. Didn't feel at all uncomfortable eating on my own. Always left a book, sunglasses on the table so that it wasn't cleared (tip from a previous review) as staff were generally very efficient at clearing up. Red wine in restaurant is chilled which I wasn't very keen on but could always go to bar first where wine was room temp and take a glass through to dining room. Also was OK to take glass of wine back to room to enjoy on balcony before going to bed. Don't know if that was allowed really but no one ever stopped me.
Went with the intention of going on trips but after the first day at the pool I ventured over to the beach and that was me for the rest of the week. I walked through the sea to the airport at Arricife and back, few swims in the sea and bit of sunbathing. Got the best tan ever just from walking. Loved it! Was a week of total self indulgence. Weather was good, I felt totally safe both in the hotel and on the beach. Had a walk along the strip at Puerto del Carmen, only about about 10 mins walk away, just cause I thought I ought to.
This is a wonderful hotel in a great location (maybe not if you are young and looking for night life)and I had hoped to return in January but it seems to be full, speaks for itself, but I will certainly return in the future :-)
