Playa Olid Apartments
Ranked #38 of 61 Hotels in Costa Adeje
Reviewed April 6, 2010

My family and I booked this hotel at short notice with the main priority of getting some winter sun. On that basis, the Playa Olid was fine. Rooms were basic and clean. Reception staff were very helpful. We did have a problem with noisy neighbours but were swiftly moved to a different block which was much quieter.

Our children enjoyed the pool very much and there was plenty of sun beds.

Lots to do in surrounding area (diving, boat trips, Teidi etc). We were disappointed with the price of the cable car to go up Teidi however - this is very costly now compared to a few years ago.

Don't go expecting the Ritz and you'll be fine

Just returned after a very nice stay. The apartments are in several blocks and we were in a 1 bed apartment in "blue block" overlooking the pool. Spacious and clean with a large balcony. No air con or fan which will mean it would be very hot in summer. No oven - only 2 electric rings - but toaster,electric kettle and fridge.Maid service 4 out of 6 days. Very pleased with apartment itself - bathroom was quite good with a toilet, shower, sink, bath and bidet.

Two pools in complex and free sunbeds - mattress for sunbed 1 euro - one pool is nicer than the other. However, as this was low season there was only just enough space aroiund the pool and so space/sunbeds could be an issue in high season. The beach is quite a walk away and the hil after a day on the beach would be a bit of a killer.

Apartments are on a hill and so you need to be fairly fit. Quite a lot of traffic noise as on the main road and also on/near the motorway - again could be a problem depending on apartment location. Big supermarket nearby over the motorway but don't expect cheap prices !!! We found tenerife quite expensive and so won't be rushing back to Canaries or Spain. Eating out is reasonable but drinks are expensive - especially soft drinks - even in the supermarket.

Apart from the hill the location is quite good and there is a bus stop outside the apartment. Staff are very friendly and helpful and we could recommend apts for a weeks break out of high season. If you have walking difficultie make sure you ask for the blocks near reception with the lifts.

Just got back from staying at the playa olid for a 2nd time.....good three star apartments, plenty of room, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, fridge could do with updating, rooms cleaned daily, towels and bedding changed often , a little noisy if you are on the road side, but not to big a problem, two mid sized pools, plenty of sunbeds, would stay here again. Good location, on a slight hill, staff friendly and helpfull. If you want good basic value for money apartments stay at the playa olid......if you want 5 star luxury stay at one of the more expensive hotels or apartments that tenerife has to offer.

having read other reviews was pleased to find complex pleasant and clean, two pools one with bar and music the other quieter. slight hill (mentioned in one review) absolutely no issue ( there are lots of hills in teneriffe and this was more an incline)close to everything but a bieng a little stroll from centre best of both worlds. discount for playa olid at next door supermarket and fabulous little hairdresser called dimensions. easy to book excursions, whales and dolphins a must and the yellow submarine best fun in ages!!! If you are looking for a self catering basic appartment within a pleasant complex this is fine. (no microwave) tv you pay for a week and not too pricey. and everyon was very helpful. An absolute must is El Classico just down the hill- deceptive as it provides the most excellent food - chateuxbriand and filet mignion perfection and the tirimasu the best i have ever tasted, great service from canarian waiters- chef deserves a michelin star(hidden gem)

We stayed at this hotel for 1 week from the 4th march. There was 6 of us in total an we had 3 apartments. Check in was quick and easy taking just a few minutes and we didnt have to leave our passports for 24 hours which we have done in other aparments. Our rooms were on the 3rd 4th and 5th floor and the stairs were fairly steep so anybody with any walking difficulties i probably wouldn't recommend it too as it is also located on quite a steep hill. The apartments itself were very clean and spacious and the maids cleaned everyday except on the sunday. There is a safe in the room which you could hire for 32 euros and when you returned the key you got the 15 euros back. There is also a tv in the room which you again could hire think that was about 20 euros for the week. There are 2 pools on the complex 1 of which had the pool bar open. It did get quite busy so you did have to get out before 9 to get a sunbed on the busiest pool but the other one you had no problem with. The beach was about a 10 minute walk away but the sunbeds and parasols were quite expensive to hire 15 euros for 2.
i would definately return to this complex if we just wanted a cheap week away as it was close to shops bars and restaurants. i would recommend the siam water park aswell which was amazing. If you want any info dont hesitate to email me and ill try my best to answer your questions.

These apartments are probably the best I've stayed in in a long time. The living area was large, clean and comfortable, the kitchen very well equiped (although no microwave) but they even had a coffee maker! bedroom had 2 small doubles pushed together with ample hanging space for all your holiday clothes. There was plenty of furniture and the bathrom was a good size with a great shower over the bath. Housekeeping service is daily except Thursdays and Sundays. Set in a gorgeous garden landscape with 2 pools, pool bar and restaurant. Staff all spoke excellent English and were friendly, knowledgeable and offered superb customer service. I felt safe the entire stay as you can only access the complex with your key after 10pm - so don't forget it when you go out in the evening. All in all I had a great stay and would recommend to anyone, I will most certainly be returning here when travelling back to Tenerife.
