We came seeking some low-cost winter sun and were pleasantly surprised by this hotel having had a disastrous '5*' out-of-season holiday in Turkey a few years ago.
It is a long way from the party hot-spots (and airport) of the south but we knew that before we booked.
We had hired a car so getting about was really easy for us (and the hotel car-park is free), however there are buses every 20 minutes to take you to the busier resorts/Santa Cruz/Mount Tiede. Because we came in low season on an all-inclusive basis the meals did get a bit repetitive, but there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. All in all I would say this hotel was excellent value for money, the staff were friendly, the accomodation clean and comfortable. It is not out-and-out luxury but you really can't expect 5* accomodation at 3* prices. I think the 4* rating is fair. If you decide to stay here - definitely make at least one trip to Santa Cruz, also Loro Parque was excellent and Mount Tiede national Park. There is a lot more to Tenerife than beer & beaches.
