This family favourite stacks up the activities and has a handy shortcut to the beach.
This good-sized hotel sits a few paces from a shallow, sandy cove – just a nip through the hotel's gardens – and comes with its own splash park. You're 25 minutes’ walk from San Antonio.
Activities-wise, there's pool games, aqua aerobics... plus a First Choice kids' club.

If you'd like to relax and unwind, pull up a sunbed and grab some shade under a parasol.

Beware of Maids!
My family and I stayed at the Tanit last summer. Despite a few cloudy days overall our stay was lovely, the hotel clean, the staff pleasant, drink and food to be expected from an all inclusive, lovely location, just a short walk through trees down steps to lovely alcove beach. Unfortunately, my stay was spoilt by my lace pj's/camisole top and bottoms being taken from my room, (of which they were very expensive but more sentimental to me). After reporting the missing items I was told they would check with cleaning staff and laundry. I returned everyday with no luck in finding them.On my last day I was told to keep checking whilst home in case they appeared. Obviously no items have been found and when requiring as to what steps I need to take to replace these I was then informed that I should have put all valuables into the safe (we had purchased a safe and used it for such items, but considering I think all my items and valuable either financially and wearability, they would have to provide a rather large safe)! I was then accused of making up the situation and no refund or token has been offered. I am very disappointed at the outcome, with such a large hotel chain, of which we have used numerous times, my items would not be out of the way to offer a refund. So to it round up - lovely holiday, lovely hotel, but BE WARNED .. BE CAREFUL OF THE MAIDS .. Do they really vet and trust all of them?More
First choice / Thompson reps and kids club were amazing!
Can't thank the reps enough for making our stay what it was. Michael dealt with a room issue with such professionalism and customer care upon our arrival - thank you, you are an absolute credit to the company! As for the kids club reps - again, went above and beyond the call of duty, our children loved them and so did we. Always took time to chat to us and make the kids feel special. Our kids have never liked kids club previously, but we couldn't keep them away from this amazing team of reps. Sorry it took me so long to write this abbi gaga, Ali oli, and rainbow rhi, you were amazing and I hope we see you again (William & Olivia talk about you all the time) xx Hotel, food & staff all very good.More
Excellent Hotel: 2nd visit
We spent two weeks here in late September 2014 and had a faultless experience.â¨Food is of a good variety and quality, and you have the option of eating in the outside area, which we found a great advantage on a hot evening. Drinks are acceptable for all-inclusive and staff were always friendly and helpful. Bar staff, especially Antonio and Manuel are welcoming, friendly and soon get to know your tipple and offer to refill your glass when they see it's getting low!Â â¨â¨Our room was on the seventh floor with a splendid sea view towards San Antonio and was kept immaculately clean every day by the friendly squad of cleaners. You really cannot fault the cleanliness aspect of this hotel and I am doubtful of some of the criticisms I that have read here concerning room cleaning. This was our second stay here and my wife and I could not praise highly enough this hotel's standards.â¨We enquired about rooms 719 and 720 (619/620, 519/520 etc) which all face due West and have the best views of the sunset. We were advised that these were 'premium rooms' and surcharged at 18 Euros a day, which in our view was a bit overpriced.â¨â¨We loved the small beach just down a few steps from the hotel, a perfect place to chill out, and there is a small bar there which is not too expensive. San Antonio is about a fifteen to twenty minute walk away, part of which can be taken by the water's edge if you prefer. We were advised NOT to use the seaside route after dusk which is fairly remote as there tend to be undesirables hanging about often the worse for drink.â¨â¨San Antonio is is the nearest big town and is everything that you ever read about it! Useful for shopping and souvenirs but the partygoers dominate!â¨When we were waiting for a bus back to the hotel we went into to the small Cafeteria Bahia (just under the Autoescuela Bahia) where a very friendly barman served me the coldest, most welcome beer I have ever tasted.â¨The glass had been deep frozen and on a hot day was most appreciated. We preferred this little bar to any of those in the town as it was quiet and not full of drunken yobs. Best bit: Pint of lager and a glass of wine â¬4.50!â¨â¨The area close to the hotel is quiet and secluded, which may not suit someone seeking a more lively holiday location. That said, the town is only a short bus or taxi ride away. A small supermarket is handy to the hotel and fairly priced.â¨â¨The entertainment team work hard and though not all was to our taste we did enjoy some of background music whilst sitting in the main bar.â¨â¨Terrace bar does tend to get crowded in the evening but there were never any significant queues for either the bar here or the one inside.â¨â¨In summary, a lovely hotel that I would not hesitate to recommend. I think it is worth mentioning, (because many people don't seem to be aware of it) that the Fiesta Group of hotels, now being rebranded as 'Palladium' offer a loyalty points system known as 'Fiestis'. For two people staying for two weeks this is worth 28 Fiestis which converts to a 24 Euros credit towards a late stay room or towards drinks in the bar not covered by all-inclusive. This credit can only be used on your next holiday at any of the Fiesta/Palladium Group hotels. Even one of the Reps was not aware of the scheme so you need to ask for your 'Fiestis' before you sign out of the hotel as they will not credit you later.â¨â¨Unfortunately, on a few occasions we witnessed some English guests treating the bar and reception staff very rudely. When you hear... " Oi you!...Four beers and make it quick mate" shouted at the barman you realise just what staff have to sometimes put up with. Tanit staff are very courteous, friendly and helpful, so don't be put of by comments to the contrary!Â â¨â¨To summarise: The Tanit is a great experience and represents very good value.Â I will certainly return.â¨More

Great hotel just booked again!
First time at this hotel in September 2014, the hotel is clean and food is even better with something for everyone and well catered for children, if you plan any day trips i would advise getting a pack up free of charge from the hotel, they will only provide this if 24 hours notice is given but is very nice. The pool area always had lots to do with music and a seating area near the bar (Perfect). Bar staff were friendly and always served swiftly and the reps were also very friendly. We spent most of our time down at the beach it is a perfect little beach and was not too busy at the time we were there, we always found a spot around the pool area no matter what time of day it was. We requested a room high up with good views and our wish was granted we had a good view of san antonio and the sea. The transfer to and from the airport was about 30 mins, there is a local shop and bar on the door step of the hotel which is convenient for buying water etc as we couldn't find any other water apart from the vending machine when the bars were shut, this was about â¬2.50! All in all brilliant hotel and staff, we have booked another stay for September 2015!More
Nice hotel, but not a 4 star
Stayed sept 2014 for 10 days, very clean hotel with good food and plenty of choice. Nice pools and 2 nice small beaches nearby. A couple of negatives which spoilt our visit and could be an easy fix : Coffee is from machines even at the bar and is not very nice, reception said the bar staff make other coffee fresh for you however when we asked the bar staff they refused initially even when i pointed out that I could see the equipment behind the bar. I complained and eventually got the odd coffee made although the bar staff were not happy and at times rude when i asked. The outside terrace was a haven for smokers even when the sun canopy was on, my wife smokes but we avoided this area due to smoke and stale smell. This was not a big deal for us but you have to walk through this area to get to the pools and beaches etc so felt a bit sorry for people with kids or asthma etc. I think the area under the sun canopy should be non smoking for those reasons. Shame about the negatives, as hotel and location is great. iMore
