Reviewed August 24, 2009

We stayed in Panorama in August 2009 and really enjoyed our time there. We had an appartment - and it was very spacious, with a big balcony, the kitchen had everything we needed - the fridge and all the necessary stuff (glasses, pan, dishes, knifes and so on). everything was very clean and the room was cleaned 5 times a week, towels changed as well. The location was also good - the hotel is located near the ocean and you can see it from your appartment, it takes about 5 minutes to get to the nearest beach and aproximately 10 minutes to get to the big beach Torviscas. The staff was very friendy and helpful, we liked the restaurant as well-breakfasts were the same every day (but had enough to satisfy your needs), for the dinner there was something new every day and the choise was very good for the 3star hotel(always a choise of fish, meat, something for vegetarians, salads, fresh fruits, desserts,ice-cream and so on). As the negative things i could mention that there is no conditioning system in the room, besides that you have to pay for the safe in the room and we didnt like the fact that despite we had halfboard with suppers, you didn't get even water for free at the supper - i would reccomend to the hotel to include soft drinks into the menu,otherwise it is a bit disturbing to pay for the water or tea every evening. But overall we really liked our hotel, it is located in the center,near the ocean, shopping centre and bus station, but in a more quet area and you can sleep normally during the night. If i went to the Tenerife on a budget holiday i would definately stayed there again.

We stayed at this hotel last year and enjoyed our stay that much we returned this year.We were upgraded to a 2 bedroomed apartment which was huge.All staff as friendly as before especially Luis from reception who remembered us from last year and who is really nice and approachable.We love the "Family" feel of these apartments as most of the visitors are people who return year after year and are all welcoming.We had great food again whilst on holiday especially from Rossinis( up hill turn right on opposite side of the road next to the "pleasant plucker" Dont say this drunk... hehe).We would definetely return to these apartments real soon.

Just returned last week after a 2 week stay and we all had a great time.
It only took about 20 mins in Taxi from airport (lots of taxis waiting outside main entrance) and cost about 25 Euros for the fare. Fares seem to vary quite a lot there (my sisters family were charged 30 euros and they took identical route to us). Probably best agreeing a price with driver before you get in cab, thats what we did.
On arrival at reception the staff were very friendly & gave us a trolley so that we could easily take our luggage to our apartment. We were given 1 bedroom apartment No:25 which was ideally situated. It was on the ground floor overlooking pool & snack bar. No need to be concerned about having snack bar right next to our balcony as it was never, ever busy or noisy. My sister's familly were given apartment No:33 which was at the other end of our corridor, again overlooking pool. There were about half a dozen studios between our apartments.
The apartments are quite basic but we found them quite roomy & comfortable apart from the awful sofa bed in the living area. The kids got the bedroom with the 2 comfortable single beds. We opted to sleep in the living area with the pull out sofa bed, it was so creaky & uncomfortable with a couple of screws falling out the first time we pulled out the mattress! After that we just placed the mattresses on the floor without using the bed frame, a lot more comfortable. Perhaps we should have complained about the bed as they may have changed it for us. Never mind it wasn't too much of a nuisance once we got used to it. The bedroom had a ceiling fan which was quite good at keeping the kids cool-ish overnight. We knew about the lack of air conditioning so took our own fan with us which was a great idea. It would have been unbearably hot if we hadn't done that as it was very hot when we were there. It typically was in the mid to high thirties most days but it reached 44 degrees one day! It was lovely in the evenings strolling around the nearby shops/restaurants as it was usually about 25+ degrees in evenings. No need for any warm clothes such as cardys - leave them at home!
The pool was great. Kids loved it. It did have one really deep area but most of the pool was suitable for most ages/ abilities of swimmers. There was a lifeguard on duty every day but sometimes they were more interested in texting on their phone, etc so obviously you need to still keep an eye on your kids. There were plently of loungers which were tied up at night & unlocked at 9am. It was so amusing watching all of the sleepy people coming down to claim their spot next to the pool, throw a towel on their loungers then disappear back to their rooms. Often these people wouldn't arrive to start their sunbathing till well after lunchtime. I never saw the need to do this as there was always plenty room for everyone.
We ate at a different restaurant every night & there were so many to chose from. The only bad meal we had was at a place called Amandas (went there cause it had a bouncy castle for kids to play on) - food was terrible!! Dont go!! Had lovely meals at the Royal Beach, Marios, Rossinis, 2 different chinese buffets (very good value for money & eat as much as you like!) and found a really lovely restaurant on our last night which was in a beautiful setting & was really romantic, think it was called Dorothas (??).
We made a mistake most nights by turning right at the bottom of the hill outside Panorama to walk along to the restaurants there. If you take a left turn at the bottom of the hill you have a short walk past the Jardin Tropical pool bar (very pretty! but the coldest water you could imagine!!) then you reach lots of nice restaurants between Panorama & Las Americas, you dont need to walk far though.
We did 3 excursions when there which we all enjoyed.
Loro Parque was expensive but well worth the money as the orca & dolphin shows were truly amazing. Unforgettable. The kids were so happy to be there. I advise you to take your own food & drink with you though as the queues were horrendous and although tasted fine werent really worth the money or the wait.
We visited Monkey Park which cost about 7 euros in a taxi and was only 10Euros/adult & 5Euros/child. On arrival it looked a bit shabby but we were pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable the place was. You get to hold baby Cockatoos and pose for them to take your photo on your way in. Photos are very nice & cost 10 euros (we asked them to photo both of our kids together therefore only had to buy one pic). You can buy a bag of food for the animals on your way in which costs a couple of euros but we took a loaf of fresh bread & some grapes with us & they much prefered this fresh food. You get to walk through some enclosures where the lemurs & monkeys, etc are climbing about over your head. They will happily come down & feed from your hand & they were all so tame, friendly & cute!! There were all shapes & sizes of primates, the chimps were very entertaining! There were also pumas, huge tortoises, guinea pigs, etc. The kids vowed that this was the best experience of their lives & said that they enjoyed it even more than Loro parque!
Our final trip was to Aqualand. This is basically straight up a very steep hill behind panorama. I wouldn't recommend walking it due to the heat, think I would have died!! Unfortunately my daughter broke her wrist the night before our trip there so we left the hospital & arrived just before the dolphin show. The rest of the family had been there all day & enjoyed the many water slides, etc. Dont do what they did & pay 11Euros for the hire (non-refundable) of a twin rubber ring. They say that most of the rides didn't need a ring & I think they only used it once - waste of money. I would advise you to go to the excursion shop directly opposite the entrance to the Aqua park for your tickets. If you buy them there you get the kids in free so that saved us a lot of money!! the food there was terrible! Even the burgers/pizzas tasted terrible & the prices were dear. So again take your own food & drink. We didn't see anyone getting their bags searched at all. The dolphin show was beautiful - I had tears in my eyes at one point because it was so magical! You can pay for your kids to kiss the dolphins or even swim with them but it was so expensive I'm afraid it was out of the question for us on the last day of our holiday.
Anyway, I've rabitted on a bit so will stop now. All in all we had a really fantastic time at Panorama. It is such a peaceful & relaxing place to stay and I would recommend it to anybody who doesn't want a busy, noisy place to stay. It was lovely!!

me and my mate stayed here last year and we loved it, great pool and brilliant rooms not to mention them being kept clean. The location of the apartments is also fab, close to restaurants and a short walk into the centre of las americas!
I would return to this hotel.

Just got back from a pleasant 2 week stay at the Panorama and would highly recomend this complex due to the fact it is idealy located for both Costa Adeje and Las Americas.
The complex is well maintained and the studio was spacious. We only had to pay for a safety deposit box 47 euros and 10 euros on return of key. When I enquired about a toaster I was given one free of charge as was the remote control in the studio. We thought we had to pay a deposit for everything but none was required.
There was entertainment on most nights but poorly attended probably due to the fact there is so much on offer in the resorts. If you stay here you will not be disapointed well worthy of its 3 star rating.
Even with our airline (Futura) going bust the day we were travelling home did not deter from a very enjoyable stay in Tenerife.

My boyfriend and I (25 and 23 y.o.) stayed at the hotel in July 2008. For a three star hotel this is a wonderful place with a great view, nice attentive staff, clean rooms. The breakfast could be better, but still with the variety of food it is hard to complain. Coffee is horrible but we noticed it to be a common trend on the Canary Islands. The hotel is located on a quite street away from the main area with all the bars, restaurants and busy night life, but with a 10-15 minutes walk you will be in the heart of it all. Supermarkets are located nearby as well as excursions/rental bureau with a very friendly and helpful personnel just around the corner, just walk up the street and you will be pleasantly surprised. The beach is a stone's throw away. We rented a car during our stay and were able to park at the hotel free of charge, any time of the day and night as long as there was a parking space available. If your flight is in the evening, you can leave your luggage in the storage room, use the pool if you like and take a shower before you leave, they have all the facilities, just ask!
I cannot say much about the dinners, as we did not stay for dinner at the hotel. I would not however recommend any places in and around the Costa Adeje, all they've got to offer is pizza's and pasta's, overcooked steaks and tasteless 'British' food. But perhaps we were the unlucky ones.
Go away from the touristic places to smaller villages, definitely visit Garachico for some truly good canarian food and amazing views.
In Playa de las Americas i can only recommend one place - Balkonen on Avenida Santiago. Try their speciality, Lebanese food and you will not regret it! It is simply superb!
All in all, we had a great time. Tenerife is one of the greatest places to visit!
