Before I rate the hotel and holiday I must warn everyone about the pickpockets in Costa Adeje and Tenerife as a whole. We were forced to queue up outside the Luabay Hotel in Costa Adeje before checking in. A man shouting down into his mobile pulled my husbands suitcase away from him and whilst my husband was trying to pull it back his wallet was stolen from his zipped up pocket halfway down his trouser leg. It was reported to police and a report was made so our insurance will step in.
Well, Thomson say it is a Platinum which to my mind should be better than the Gold hotels. We have stayed in Thomson Gold before and they are far superior to the Platinum Luabay.
No CCTV no security at all. There were muggings in the lifts (when they worked) on 3 occasions during our 2 week stay.
There were other men having their wallets taken. Inside and outside hotel.
The food was eatable very repetative but very German orientated .
Rooms are a decent size but only 3 drawers.
You have to be up before dawn to get your towels on the sunbeds.
The Animation team were very good during the day. Sabrina was brilliant at keeping kids and adults busy. All the hotel staff were very helpful and the Thomson reps were superb.
We will not be going back.
We have booked up a Thomson Gold in Lanzarote for later in the year just to get over Costa Adeje.
I rate this hotel as a 3 star only.
