We stayed half board in a junior suite, room decor very nice but air conditioner not very good. Lovely balcony area with sun beds, lovely spa bath with hand held shower. Not easy to get into if u have a bad back. No tea making facilities or iron or ironing board. Small fridge in room which OS now free. Roof area really good for sunbathing especially as they have now put astro turf up there. Not enough umbrella especially on the naturist side. Nice that they now have a bar up on the roof . Please ask management to stop children going up there. Breakfast was quite good but evening meals were average. On last day we ordered a picnic, I would not bother again. Cleaning staff work really hard to keep rooms clean.
On the whole the hotel has improved since our last visit which was about 10 years ago. Hope to visit again next year but bed & breakfast next time

We enjoyed a short family holiday here in October. Our room was just what we requested, with a extra bed for our 14 year old son which was very comfortable. We had a short wait for our room and they gave us a drink voucher - soft drink, sangria or beer. A lovely touch I thought even though we were dying for a glass of wine. The food was very good with plenty of choice and the staff who were run off their feet as it was extremely busy, managed to get the tables cleared and set up again with lightening speed. The staff were lovely - very friendly and helpful and always with a smile. Overall the hotel was very busy at breakfast time if you weren't there early and evenings as well. The pool was also busy and noisy during the day, which is wonderful if you have very young kids and aren't expecting peace and quiet. Sunbeds were hard to get as well. There is a roof top terrace which is like a different world and we spent most of our time there. It was bliss with very comfortable loungers, a bar, cooling off pool - and a nudist area if you feel inclined! Drinks in the hotel are reasonably priced and much cheaper than neighbouring cafes and bars. A bottle of house wine was 7 euro and very nice too. Overall a very enjoyable four day break.

My husband and I have stayed here twice in the last six months. We were all inclusive both times. There is a huge selection of food at all meals . you would always find something to eat either fish or meat and all kinds of vegetables and salads. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and cleaned every day. The pool area is so relaxing. If you want more sun you can go to the roof terrace where there are two more smaller pools and a little bar.There are pool side activities every day. I particularly enjoyed the aqua aerobics.I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It's about a six minute walk to the beach and if you don't feel like going in to the water you can walk along the beautiful tiled prom and take in the amazing views. Costa Adeje is a fab holiday destination especially for the more mature traveller. We love it!

Room Tip: we asked for a room in the quiet part of the hotel and both times we got one overlooking the pool wh...

This was the first time I travelled abroad and I was fairly anxious about flying with the children and wondered what to expect when we got there. However I neednt have worried. We recieved a warm welcome and had a lovely room on 4th floor with beautiful sea views. the room was very clean and everything worked ! The food was amazing and staff so friendly. we are definately going back despite only having 2 nice days of weather there was just so much to do in the hotel . the pool was very warm and entertainment good too. What more could we want.

Room Tip: we were on 4th floor facing sea no noise whatsoever.

There will be people who love this hotel, we didn't. It is in need of a bit of refurbishment but that is not the main problem, the rooms are fine, fairly standard, they do have connecting doors which doesn't help with the noise from your neighbours. We were on the fourth floor in what should have been a quiet part of the hotel, and it would have been if most of the other guests had not been so inconsiderately noisy, Wham full blast at two in the morning was a touch annoying, doors being slammed and lots of shouting were a nightly occurrence. Obviously this is the guests rather than the hotels fault but as it was every night we were there I can only assume this is the norm. Our other main complaint would be the food, it is very much more cafeteria than restaurant, there is plenty but it is bland and repetitive, breakfast in particular was very poor, orange juice is out of a machine and has no resemblance to juice, the meats and cheeses were of the cheapest quality, the same three tin fruits were provided everyday both for breakfast and evening meal. I tried every type of bread on offer but all were stale. On a positive note the location was very good, the pool looked very nice but it was very busy with children and this did appear to be a good hotel for families (apart from the noise issue), there did seem to be a lot of activities and entertainment that families would enjoy. We chose to sunbathe on the roof which was very nice, the sunbeds were comfortable and there were two plunge pools and a nice bar. We stayed on a half board basis but an all inclusive deal was also available which a lot of people did seem to be on and enjoying. If you want a quiet break in the sun this isn't the right hotel but if you like lots of entertainment and plentiful basic food then it will probably suit you.

Room Tip: Don't think it makes any difference, all noisy.

Dear MargeWestYorks,

Thank you for taking some time to post your thoughts about Hotel Fanabe in TripAdvisor.

If you stayed with us during half term holidays, we have to admit, the hotel is more noisy than any other moment in the year where there are no school holidays, then it's more peaceful.

We hope you accept our excuses about any inconvenience caused due to the noise some guests generated.

We also regret our food selection didn't please you at our buffet restaurant, our team is daily challenged by every single guest that books our hotel and we are focused in working hard to fullfill everybody's expectations, what is something difficult to achieve but is a permanent motivation as it helps us to pay attention on daily basis to personal likes and preferences to improve our services.

Looking forward welcoming you in your next holidays in Tenerife

Stopped here 19-27 oct on A I. Great hotel everywhere clean and tidy.
Check in was easy, paid for a safe at the same time and cases taken to our room.
We booked a suite which happened to be on the 2nd floor above the restaurant and got the sun from about 2pm till 6,but most of the day was spent on the lovely roof top terrace which had a couple of plunge pools and bar(plus ladies and gents loos),we only used our balcony to catch the last hr or so of the sun,which had two sun beds on and a parasol. The room was large with two lcd tv"s which had limited english channels and a super large bed plus a sofa chair pull out bed for our daughter. The barthroom was also large with a spa type bath.
Worth a mention are the cleaners who keep the place spotless and make lovely animals with the towels.
The food was good with plenty of choice,food cooked while you waited, and loads of it all ready cooked if you couldn"t wait.
There was also a mini buffet for children at night,which had breaded chicken strips,fish fingers,meat balls,chips,pasta etc. The staff were all great, showing you to a table at lunch and evening dinner,the buffets were kept well stocked and plates cleared from your table very quickly.
The evening entertanment was ok,the bar at the front of the hotel was a bit warm at night and the disco had a limited view of the stage.
The hotel is about 500-600 mtrs from the beach and walking it took about 10 mins,it is down hill to the beach and pushing a push chair back up would take longer.
TIP pay 10 euro deposit for a towel for the sun beds and you get your money back when you take them back at the end of your holiday.
We booked with jet 2 holidays and overall had very good value for money.
Would come back here again,hopefully next year.

We recently stayed for a week at Fanabe Costa Sur on a half board basis. Check in was very quick and our room was located on the first floor (rm 153) above the outdoor terrace at the front of the hotel. This was great for us as it meant we could sit on our balcony and watch the live entertainment. This room may not be great for families as the music went on till midnight and was loud even with the balcony doors closed but this did not bother us. The room and hotel is spotless and as mentioned in previous reviews the countless maids worked flat out to achieve this!
The breakfast was brilliant -lots of choice with eggs and pancakes cooked fresh to order. We chose to eat lunch over dinner everyday and it was enough to keep us going. I would personally be reluctant to go all inclusive as the food choice was quite limited and there are numerous affordable restaurants around Costa Adeje!
There is a great supermarket opposite the hotel which is handy for buying drinks and snacks - there is a fridge in the room.
We opted to sunbathe on the quiet roof terrace which was fantastic. Not once did we have to get up early to reserve a sunbed and we got the sun all day! The plunge pool (if slightly cold) was great when the sun was getting too hot. Only half the main pool area seemed to get the sun all day however this did not affect us as we didn't sunbathe there the whole holiday! We could also pick up the free wifi on the roof terrace which was a bonus.
The hotel is located up a slight hill from the beach - there are plenty restaurants and bars on the beachfront and the main road that runs parallel to the beach. A taxi to Playa las Americas is under 10 euro and one evening we walked which took us around 40 minutes or so (at a fast pace!)
The taxi from the airport cost about 25 euro and the taxi drivers are brilliant (if slightly quick) the system in tenerife is great with signs of estimated costs of journeys and very clearly marked taxi ranks.
We had a late flight when leaving so used the courtesy room in the basement which was handy.
Overall we had a great holiday and are already looking to return to Fanabe Costa Sur in April.

Room Tip: Room 153 would be noisy until midnight as it overlooks the outdoor bar terrace.
