This hotel has the perfect family set-up, with pools, activities and a trio of restaurants, plus extras like a cinema and bowling alley. The beach is in easy reach, too.
The focus falls on the pools at this place – there’s an activity one, a quiet number with Balinese beds, and a waterslide pool. There’s loads on dry land, too – like kids’ clubs, sports and an Aerial Adventure course.
There’s a black-sand beach 10 minutes’ walk away. Back at base, you’ve got a handful of restaurants, a plush spa and a packed line-up of evening entertainment.

First time all inclusive holiday
Mixed feelings about this holiday. When we arrived it was clear that this wasn't a hotel that was ONLY for first choice customer so wasn't really a first choice village, other European holiday makers were here too, and lots of them. We were kept waiting at check in for AGES and then had to wait until 4pm for our apartment to be ready. While we were waiting we grabbed our swimmers out the suitcase, went for a swim and had something to eat. We couldn't have wished for a nicer apartment that catered for a family of 5. 2 adults, a 14 yr old, 8yr old and a 2yr old, however, it was too close to the entertainment which kept us awake at night but the views out to sea were super and it wasn't far to walk to the restaurants. Each morning I had to get up about 7.30 am and reserve a couple of sunbeds (which was all that was left at that time) for our family of 5. We found the food choices to be absolutely fine and thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ at the quiet pool. We never ventured to the louder pool as it was far too crowded and very noisy. I found the 'quiet' pool perfect for us and the children could help themselves to unlimited drinks, food and ice cream. We quite enjoyed the entertainment especially the widgets, 5 live and the indoor Spanish entertainment. Unfortunately the 'english' outside stage had loud and bad out of tune singing carrying on until quite late which was annoying to say the least. We found the whole of the hotel to be clean and well kept. The housekeepers tried teaching my 8yr old Spanish and hi 5'd him every day. Even though we had a good time, it wasn't great and for that reason wouldn't pay the thousands it cost to go back and would rather go somewhere else next time.More

Good hotel but HV is unnecessary
Went as part of 2 families, each with a 7 year old to the HV Tenerife last august. The hotel is actually the Costa Los Gigantes and the HV is marketed by First Choice for the summer season. The hotel is excellent, spotlessly clean and enjoying very good accommodation . We were lucky as we were centrally located but I guess that such is the size of the complex if you were on the extreme of the site then large distances and time would be required. The food is very good and varied. We enjoyed 4 a la carte meals and each one was enjoyable and the sheer joy of being served was a pleasure to behold. The entertainment in the hotel lounge was of a high standard (except for the evening when 8 fathers performed and this was just embarrassing). With regard to the HV part of the holiday, our 2 x 7 year olds enrolled on 3 occasions for the Razzamatazz drama/dance workshops and therefore did not need to take part in the organised events. Then every afternoon they just wanted to swim and play in the pools. Every evening there was entertainment on an outside stage which was, at best, average and frequently not that good. In conclusion, the hotel is great but think seriously before spending money on HV because you may not need it.More
Brilliant family friendly holiday
This place has everything you could possibly need for a great family holiday. Spacious apartment, with excellent housekeeping and great views. Three different pools to choose from. Loads for the kids to do. Little one loved the kids club and the evening entertainment. Because this hotel is kind of three hotels in one, there's loads of stuff going on as you have the first choice staff, and the local luabay staff. We, as a couple, don't particularly enjoy getting involved in all the activities, but when you have a four year old, you don't have much choice! The food was really good. Plenty of choice, we never even made it to the a'la cartes as we were happy with the flexibility of the buffet. The staff were also really good, friendly and approachable, particularly at the front desk. The nearby beach is small but great fun... Watch out for the unpredictable tide though... Those giant waves can really knock you off your feet (I speak from experience!!) The only downsides for us were small. The games room was a bit redundant as most were broken. The 'late breakfast' was pretty poor so if you got up late, you were hungry till lunchtime. The wifi was chargeable and only available in the main building (this is a personal bugbear... I don't understand why hotels don't offer free wifi these days). For an all inclusive package holiday for a family, I wholeheartedly recommend it, and at the price (we were there late in the season so only paid Â£1000 for all three of us), it's a steal! More
Great holiday, lovely hotel
Myself and a friend (both 23) stayed for a week at Holiday Village Tenerife last September. As we went during term time there were only very young children around. We saw a few young couples and a few families with older children as well. We booked a one bedroom apartment and were given a lovely (very big) room looking out to the sea. The rooms and hotel in general were always very clean and the hotel itself is massive! There are three pools but we spent all our time at the smaller pool. Here only floating devices for swimming purposes can be used so its lovely and quiet. There is a pool bar with lots of different types of drinks and food served throughout the day. The paella they cook fresh is amazing!!! Breakfast and dinner is self service buffet style and there is so much choice!! The quality of food was also very good so we were always feeling full! The soft drinks, wine, beer etc were on tap and there were plenty coffee and tea machines around the place to serve yourself. You can also order cocktails at the bars which were very nice too. The staff at the hotel were polite and always happy to help. The first choice staff were brilliant aswell and everynight we stayed for the entertainment put on by the first choice reps followed by the hotel staff on the indoor stage. The beach is not a far walk from the hotel and the transfer from the airport doesn't take long either so it's in a perfect location. I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday at this hotel and recommended it to a friend who has booked up with her family for this year.More

We have been to several of the holiday villages and they all have their great and not so great points, we have however loved them all for different reasons. This hotel was lovely, food was great, pools ok but not much shallow areas anywhere, we were lucky to have a ground floor room close to the main pool which did help. Evening entertainment by the hotel we absolutely loved, far better than the first choice and best hotel entertainment we've experienced, at least 10 nights out of the 14 were great with magicians, live bands/music, panto show. Holidays are what you make them and with all the right things in place here you can't really not enjoy it! Siam water park and Loro park def worth going but Loro park is quite far away!More
