Not brilliant really.
We booked a hotel for our friends wedding and thought this hotel would be ideal. Receptionist although friendly took such a long time to deal with us although there was only us waiting. Easily were waiting ten minutes for our key. Reception is beautiful looking and toilets and rooms were clean. Our issue was 2 things, 1) food was dreadful, cold, stale burger rolls, bacon was stuck together, sloppy egg mixture, was supposed to be scrambled egg ! Etc.... We were devastated as we paid all inclusive and Our two daughters wouldn't eat much either. 2) place was infested with cats and hundreds of pigeons which resulted in outside tables pooed on and floor covered in bird droppings. Also swimming pool had so much bird poo in it you could see where people had stepped on it and it had smeared ! Not pleasant at all. More
Nice hotel, however need upgrade
The hotel are ony 5 mins drive from the airport. Be aware that there are several flights flying over the hotel and making noice from early morning to late evening. However, you get used to this. Hotel has 3 swimming pools in the middle of the area, in winter time one of them is heated to 23 dec C. Nice pool area with pool bar. One of the pools really needed renovation and had large cracs in the painting . Reception and bar area in the main building is large, however the funiture needs to be upgraded. Chairs was not comfortable due to little stuffing left, and you could see that everything was old. The restaurant had uncomfortable wood chairs without pillows as well, and was looking more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. High noice level due to the big area. Outside-restaurant where dinner and breakfast was served, had only plastic table/chairs and not suitable for a hotel with 4 start. The hotel had shows every evening with local entertainers. The rooms was large, however it was no heating and the temperature outside was down to 13 deg. in December. Likewise only a thin blanket was supplied. Large nice bathroom and good view if you choose sea view room. The hote was a good hotel for children and every day a children entertainment. We had all inclusive and it was good selection of food, however taste was "so so". Please note that all the main dishes was containing gluten and do not recommend all inclusive if you can not eat gluten. The hotel was on the beach and there was a nice beach road all the way to Puerto Del Carmen ( about 40 mins ++).. It is cheap to rent a car and can be recommended for travel arount. Please note that this is a small island and in 2 days you have seen it all. Recommend to visit the National park where a bus drive you around inside the volcano area.More
ideal sunny break away from the english winter.
I had not bee away with the family for years,so to get away from the British winter,las January,i went to the resort of Mata Gorda,not without some trepidation as several of my friends call it Lanzagrotty. I could not have been more pleasantl surprised.The hotel was only a short bus ride from the airport ,naturally we had to drop off others at their hotels in route.The sun was shining,it was all very new to me,I actually enjoyed the experience,whilst looking from the coach window. First impressions of the hotel were good,the reception was clean and tidy,and the staff although busy checking guests in and out were professional and courteous.My room was not quite ready,so we went to the family's room to wait.Their rooms were looking a bit tired ,but were spotlessly clean.So far so good.Finally my room was ready,and In was very pleased,having had to pay for single occupancy,I had a large room,with two beds,television and fridge.The bathroom facilities were also good and clean. It was a really great holiday.Generally the hotel was excellent,and although busy was not over so. The restaurants were great and the food at all meas was fantastic, we were spoiled for choice every day.I don not now how they achieved it for the price.Okay it was busy around the swimming pools,you could not always get a dubbed except later in the day,who cares,the temperature was around 25,the sea was great,went surfing every day,played soccer with my grandson daily on the converted tennis court,now with two goalmouths. We had drinks and snacks included all day if required, excellent entertainment at night.The staff worked hard with the youngsters daily,and then put on a show at night. We hired a car and saw as much of the island as we could,which was fascinating,and being off season,relatively traffic free. The downsides as far as I was concerned,the games room was tired and rather dirty,sadly in need of updating,but as it did not rain during our visit,it was not a big deal. The toilets were always spotessly clean,and the staff were always collecting litter and tidying. Yes it was very near the airport,which was very busy all day,but not at all intrusive. Did we enjoy ,you bet,Lanzagrotty,don,t think so. We all loved and I would have stayed on,but could not arrange it.Sadly, Could imagine it would be different in high season,but that applies almost everwhere,More

Thank you Ryanair
On the 29th November we where supposed to fly back to Dublin with Ryanair. Unfortunately due to high winds our flight was canceled. We did not wait around for Ryanair to sort out all the canceled flights. We rang the hotel a book a room for the night. The staff where very friendly, the room was large and looked out towards the beach and sea. The only downside was the noise of the flights taking off and landing. Just not RyanairMore
Friendly, Nice, Perfect Location
The Family have stayed here nine times and can't wait to stay again. The Staff are so good with kids. The back door goes on to the promenade to the sea, three pools and a lot of sports facilities. We just love it.More
