Had a lovely holiday in late July. The staff really made the holiday with outstanding customer service. To name a few: The kids/entertainment team for the kids club and evening shows especially Joyce, Lucia, Jagola, Emilio, Rodrigo, Adrian, Bcia, Des and Lise. Ben says thanks for all the fun!! The restaurant and bar staff especially Jonay and Pablo. The happy cleaners and gardeners. The lifeguard who saved the young girl. The knowledge Abel on reception. Apart from the staff the food was great with a wide range of choice to suit most tastes and the room was of a good standard. The only negatives were the food in the snack bar was a bit dry sometimes and some of the girls behind the bar were miserable and talked to other staff while serving, and the floors in the room could do with a damp mop a couple of times a week. Would revisit and interested to see what the refurbishment will bring. Thanks very much!More
Good Location , decent food and choice !
We stayed here for 2 weeks middle of Aug 2015 . Two rooms , four adults and one child . Upon our arrival at the hotel , we entered into a large nice looking Hotel lobby area , with a lovely water feature ....FIRST two problems ! ...its a family hotel , probably not the best idea having a open LARGE water feature like that in the reception , our 2 1/2 year old went straight for it arms in !?...then we saw the que which was rather long , and only 2 on the reception who were doing there best in vain to get through everyone ...so we thought ok , lets sit down and one wait in the que....next problem ...its a HUGE reception area but hardly any seats there ?.... Anyway we got the papers etc , rooms werent ready , but no problem we put the bags away and went to get something to eat and look around , and by the time we came back they were ready , only about an hour or so . Went to the rooms , and found pretty basic rooms two standard beds and a large bathroom ....Ours was okay but other room had quite a lot of mould around the room?..not good .....unpacked and went to pay for the safe ( average price) . and then asked for a couple of things we thought would be in the room ....bath mat , no problem sir will get it sent asap, and then a kettle ? ...sorry sir at full capacity we dont have enough and would have to buy you one?.....ohwell nevermind ??... So we looked around the hotel , all looked ok , lots seemed to be on offer around the complex , bikes , gym , kids area , activities ....although the BAM BAM huge club behind the hotel seemed to be shut so our lad was really a little to young for nearly all the things the hotel had on??....shame .......then massage , evening entertainment etc all looked ok ..... TIMES- the food times to me were a bit off -- serving times were too far apart , and the snack bar was a bit bland?....the evening food should start and finish earlier ...and the entertainment started far too late for the kids 8.30/9pm minimum .....too late for tired kids ....especially when the adults then only get a 30 minute slot of entertainment for the WHOLE evening??....and then to top it off THE MANAGERS RULE was to turn ALL lights off on the outside at 11pm?????? ARE WE AT A SCHOOL , this really annoyed me as this was a time for the adults who had kids to sit and relax outside and have a chat/drink ???...CHANGE THIS SOON !! Food - was good everyday , plenty on offer , the fresh bread/fruit all excellent , some items of food were either over or under cooked some days , but hey cant be perfect ??... we enjoyed the choices and sweets !! x Restaurants , could be more choice /better , bit more upclass , learn from your new fancy bar at the end of the complex ! We know you can do it ! ;) Staff - some at first seemed as dull as can be , not all , but some ....but seemed to get better as the holiday went on ...and they work long days ! so cant blame them as some of the guests dont show them any respect ( snack bar walking in wet through all day??) .... Hotel/place etc - The hotel is looking very tired , hence why it was shutting down for 3 months for a refurb as we left , good idea be nice to see whats been done on the new photos , as the location etc is perfect . pool nice size , BUT VERY dangerous ! ,,, too slippy , something needs to be done with that walkway around the pool....must say staff cleaned and day and kept the place as clean as they could .... All in all , we had a ..nice ...time ...certainly wouldnt put it on my top ten list of hotels , but it was a nice break away and we eat too much ! lol..... This ive been told will be a ALL INCL hotel only upon refurb so interesting too see how it comes out the other end ..... CHANGE THE BEDS too , took me two weeks to get my back right after coming home !?.... ;(More

Enjoyable stay, great hotel.
I travelled here last October and it was a great hotel, the proximity to the airport was amazing within 10-15 minutes we were at the hotel. I wouldn't book a transfer it would just add time to your journey, if you grab a taxi it will take minutes there may be a taxi queue but it does go down quickly most of the time depending what time of day it is. Check in was painless we were in our room within 5 minutes and ready to unpack. Our room was massive with a balcony, bedroom, sitting area and large bathroom. The bedroom could be cut off from the sitting room by sliding doors which was good for sleeping at night. We opted for all inclusive and the food was of an outstanding quality, all freshly prepared ingredients, you could even have freshly made personalised omelette at breakfast time, they had a BBQ night once a week too which was good and they freshly cooked meat from scratch like steaks exactly the way you liked it. During the day the pool was busy but you could always find a subbed somewhere, there are a lot of children in this hotel so if you like an adults only holiday and you don't like being splashed now and again then you may want to reconsider but the benefits definitely outweigh the faults. Normally during the day the kids are busy with the Animation team and Barney normally makes an appearance from time to time which is quite amusing. The pool bar is self service for wines, soft drinks and beers, there are also snacks throughout the day where you can make your own sandwiches and toasties. If you want something stronger you can get your spirits from the bar and they do have good selection of cocktails on the all inclusive band. Quite far from the centre of puerto del Carman probably about a 30 minute walk so i would recommend getting a taxi if your going for a nice dinner etc you can get a bit sweaty (Cafe ola is one of the best ones great for sunset). In a nice quiet area with the beach 2 seconds away. There are a lot of planes overhead during the day because of how close it is to the airport but once you've been there for a few days you become oblivious to this fact. There are photographers that take pictures of you if you wish and you can collect them at night, at night there is always some sort of show on. Its always a good atmosphere but again lots of children but they normally start disappearing at around 10pm to get taken to bed. Great hotel would stay here again without a doubt.More
Good hotel, well equipped rooms and close to amenities
We stayed in this hotel in July 2015 - 2 adults and our 10 year old son. The hotel is in a great position as it's only 15 mins from the airport and right beside the beach and a local Spar shop as well as a few nice bars and restaurants. Our room was very clean and spacious and well-laid out. There was a bed set up in the kitchenette area for our son, with sliding doors leading to our bedroom. This was a nice touch as we were still able to keep an eye out for our son, but also have a bit of privacy for us. The rooms were cleaned and serviced every day to a very good standard. There was also a very easy to use deposit box with key-code that you set yourself and this was paid for (â¬20 I think) on arrival. There were 4 pools of different sizes and depths, but there was the usual problem that you get everywhere..........the signs tell you not to put towels on sunbeds to 'keep' them, but when we would head down every day......there were no beds available!! This meant that we spent most of our time on the beach. We paid for B&B and there was a very good variety at the buffet every morning. The only hot food we ate though was the freshly fried eggs and the pancakes which were made while you waited. The meat didn't taste that great so we tended to stick to the same things each morning.....lots of toast, croissants, fruit, yogurt, tea and coffee. Getting to the 'strip' in Puerto del Carmen took between 30 and 35 mins walk, but a taxi was only about â¬4. Entertainment - there was something on every night which sounded great - we never actually went down but because our room was near the bar area we could hear everything - I would definitely recommend you ask for a room farther away from the bar area if you want an early night or a peaceful evening.More
