    Very good

    Very impressive Reception area

    Didn`t like being charged 4 euros per day for tea making facilities in our room; Being charged 12 euros after some person nicked my hotel towel from my sunbed; Hotel staff are generally very unfriendly especially at reception; Hotel used to be owned by the Springes group which was a better experience including cocktails at the bar ( no longer available ) and bathrobes /slippers in room. It is a nice comfy hotel but do not expect personnel service ; you are very much just a number to the staff!!

    Despite ugly looking architecture of the building, hotel is really good. It is busy, but spacious. Good location, Los Gigantes in 2 minutes drive. Nearby - public, black sand beach, number of restaurants, shops, supermarket. Free parking on streets around. Cozy, big rooms were cleaned every day. Various good food for breakfast, and delicious assortment for dinners. Animation team, lots of different kind of events, nice pools and sunny part of island. So, really good place for vacation for more or less reasonable price – 110 EUR/night for double room with HB catering.

    They did not give us requested during booking room in upper floors. It was even confirmed! And did not agree to change.

    Clean with good hotel infrastructure and animation for adults and kids. Very close to the beach la Arena and public transport.

    Some sections of the hotel were under construction during our visit and noise was coming from them. The bed could be more comfortable since missing double bed but two beds set together. I think we had more choice of meat and seafood last year.

    Very good

    The kids loved the slide. Our five year old could go down by herself and not go under when she hit the water. The view from the balcony was awesome. The play area with the pirate ship was fun. The lobby area has lots of seating to relax in and was always sparkling. The pool area was great and always clean. The area outside the resort was safe and most business owners were friendly with two children in tow. Handy grocery store near by and the volcanic beach was fun.

    The beds are really not comfortable. I had read reviews about it and thought people were complaining about nothing but they were not. Some pool staff do not know English so there was a language barrier for kids who got in the slide path a couple of times. Family rooms could be bigger. I would pay more for a bedroom off of the sitting area. I did not like the one cockroach in my bathroom and the bath water backing up into the bathroom floor. We had to pay for an upgrade of ten euros a day. Every extra costs money. Be up front that wifi will cost money too. Include it in my total price.

    Very good

    Good place to stay for 3-4 nights but my advise put extra 10€ per night and upgrade your room. rooms with pool/sea view are much better. I very liked my 510. it was at the very end of second wing of the hotel which is away from central pool with children area. quiet and relaxed atmosphere. would definitely recommend for families with kids.

    The queues, there was a queue for everything. Cleaners ignored "do not disturb" note. I didn't complain about first episode but unfortunately I did on second. I enjoyed topless sunbathing on balcony when she entered.. the range of food is ok for 3*. you have to pay extra for good coffee.

    The pool area was very nice and perfect for chilling in the sun with lots of sunbeds, the breakfast and lunch selection was nice and snacks at pool bar, good selection of drinks as well! Loved how clean everything was, but the rooms a bit dated. Location was ok but not a huge amount around but lovely small black sans beach across road which is very nice with a couple of restaurants

    Beds unfortunately were not comfy at all, every move from upstairs could be heard so we didn't sleep well, the entertainment was nice but probably aimed more at older generations, staff were not helpful and one waiter in particular was very rude, strange things like having to pay 3 euros per use of iron and wifi 20 euro for 7 days even if you are not there for 7 days and only one device allowed.

    we loved the staff always helpful and polite nothing was to much to ask (specially at the restaurant ). At the reception desk I felt that some of the ladies that were there weren't as welcoming as the rest.

    Sadly we had an extremely squeaky bed also some of our towels had holes and our bed linen have a stain and some little holes too.

    The pool

    Being double booked and not telling us till we arrived, with no choice but to go to another hotel, the upgrade when we arrived back the next day was no better than we booked,not good!! The Food was always cold! In the restaurant! one bar, they have we were treated like football fans queuing for our drinks at the bar we were segregated int 2 areas, 2 bar men serving between 150-200 people, this hotel was one of the biggest with the least going for it!!!!?I must say all the staff were pleasant I will not stay here again John & Jean Britten

    The refurbishment of the rooms and the friendliness of all the staff. It was our 12th visit!!

    The dining area has become very noisy. All the soft furnishings have been removed to give a modern look. Needs new design to absorb sound and echoing.
