“FANTASTIC!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is the second time within 12 months that we have stayed here and this time it really was amazing!! Great food. Lovely staff. Room a little basic but fine. On my birthday a bottle of champagne and a birthday cake were left in our room which was such a nice touch.

We didn't get to any of the entertainment in the evenings as we ADORE Route 66, the great bar over the road with live music every night.

The only criticism we'd have would be that the outdoor dining area should be totally non-smoking and should have a bigger sign explaining that guests have to be shown to their tables by a waiter. Both of these things would avert any unpleasantness between guests.

But all in all, we loved our stay here. Just wonder what we'd have to do to be offered champagne on arrival like other guests? This hasn't been offered to us on either visit. Maybe it's only for specific holiday firms or for those that book directly with the hotel? Never mind. We'll still be back!!!

Room Tip: Make sure to request a room above the 2nd floor to avoid people walking past your window.

we saw this hotel last year and decided we would love to stay here.Our flight and transfers were horrendous and the initial check in at 1am in the morning efficient if perfuncatory
Our room was basic, I thnk lacking wardrobe space for a four star,also the beds are very hard! we were on the shadow side of the hotel,so though the balcony had great views we rarely used it as we prefered the absolutely stunning views from the swimming pools area.Whoever designed this hotel deserves an award the views are truly lovely and the swimming pool area is itself a joy to use
The service is second to none.Staff are friendly and efficient .The food is very good but we have also stayed at their sister hotels ,the varadero in playa arena and the jandia mar in jandia and the food in those hotels was also excellent.However we did find there is far less queuing at the santiago and the service far supeior .We had lovely weather throughout after a few hours of cloud on our first morning

Room Tip: high floor overlooking the swiming pool

Excellent hotel. Friendly staff. Excellent weather.Food as good as usual and excellent choice of drinks on the All Inclusive option.

When the entertainment is finished (or not your cup of tea) go over to Route 66 to see group Old Dogs, New tricks. They are brilliant and go on until 12am.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an odd number as this gets the sun and a fantastic view of the sunset over the i...

Check in was a bit hap hazzrd. They forgot to tell us you have to put a 12 euro deposit down for the pool towels and forgot to mention you need to pay for a key to use the safe. But this was soon forgot when the room given was very nice and the views were amazing. Got to the pool and there were still plenty of choice for sun beds. Even though we got to the pool at 3pm and the hotel had lots of guests. Usual problems as at most hotels. Guest put their towels on the beds early in the morning and do not use them until later in the day. Sometimes only for an hour.
All the hotel staff were excellent.Always polite and smiling and very helpful. Food at all mealtimes was very good and plent of choice. There was never any waiting at the buffets, the staff always made sure the trays were full. We stayed Friday, Saturday and Sunday, like it so much we are planing to go back for the easter weekend.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view, but the best views are from the rooms overlooking the pools towards La Go...

We Spent 11 Nights here From 21/10/12 - 1/11/12. and we had a wonderful time.The hotel was clean & well looked after,the food was a joy to eat,the staff so helpful especially Carlos in the reception bar.
We had 7 lovely sunny days but I have to say we had 4 very wet rainy days,however we were not put off, the entertainment staff did their best to keep the adults and kids entertained.
We will be going back to this hotel and would recommend it to anybody.

Room Tip: Our room number was 224 Fantastic views of the sea and Los Giganties.

We found this hotel to be excellent value for money. The quality and choice of food was exceptional with many choices to satisfy any taste. Being all inclusive most certainly added to the value of the holiday. We had no problem with obtaining sun loungers every day and the pool bar service for food & drink was 1st class as were the 3 other bars in the hotel.

We would definately return, and recommend this hotel.
