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.

Just back from a weeks holiday at this hotel. Ended up at this resort after our holiday to Tunisia was changed. Wasn't sure what to expect after reading some reviews but must admit I found the weeks holiday very enjoyable. The hotel is large but it doesn't take too long to walk around it and there are plenty of lifts available should you need them. The rooms are spacious and the maids are in every day cleaning. The whole hotel is spotless and very well kept. The minibar is stocked up every morning as well. The food is varied and very nice. If the main restaurant is busy they do open the restaurant across the landing which has the same food and plenty of space. We never had a problem with the service and always got any drinks requested. The pools are clean and you do have a choice of the main pool which has the entertainment and inflatables are allowed or the quiet pool which has no music or inflatables but has the snack bar right next to it. We mainly kept to the quiet pool as it wasn't so crowded. The beach is about a 10 min walk but was very crowded when we went and the kids didn't really enjoy it much so never went back. Again very clean though. Only downside to the holiday was the sunbed situation. While we were there the hotel did put a notice out saying any sun beds reserved before 8am would have the towels removed. This did help the problem but as we discovered on the morning we were up early for a day trip, there were people lying on their sun beds at 6.30am in the dark just to make sure they had 'the best bed'. All very sad. However if you go to the quiet pool there are usually beds available up to about 8.30. Entertainment was great and the hotel and first choice put on very good shows. Again though if you want to watch the hotel entertainment which starts at 9pm you do have to be there for 9pm and no later or there are no tables left. Again you do have the sad few who queue up at about 8.30 waiting for the doors to open before the wacky races start to get the best tables. Overall we had a great time and the kids loved every minute. Tip though as previous people have said is to take your own plastic glasses to save constantly going up to the bar. The glasses available are all very small. And as a day trip you should try Loro Parque. Two hour drive there and back but an amazing day.More

We have just arrived back from the best holiday we have ever been on at the Holiday Village Tenerife. We couldn't fault it even if we tried. The hotel was fantastic always willing to help with any requests or problems but, what made the holiday was all the reps and entertainment team. They always had a smile for you no matter what time of day it was. Out of them all the HV entertainment team was by far the best, Callum, Hannah, Holly, Ben and Luke made the holiday the best it could be for me and my boys. They were all great with my two boys (6 & 11years old). The shows that they put on every night were fantastic and it was great to see them singing live too. Callum is fantastic on and off the stage with his addictive personality and amazing laugh. You really feel like you have made five new friends by the time you are going home and in my boys eyes they are celebrities. Thanks for an amazing holiday More

We booked another Holiday Village because our kids loved the evening entertainment at HV Kos last year. The hotel, facilities & food are absolutely fantastic! Sadly, the entertainment has been dire! The hotel's performers are woeful and even HG's in-house performers are a million miles from the standard of Stevie G & Helen at HV Kos 2014. More
Not enough space
This was our fith first choice HV and by far the biggest let down. The hotel itself is very good and we all liked the fact that it was a really good mix of nationalities, the food was as good as any HV we've been to, the local staff are excellent and the entertainment team work ever so hard. However everything is let down by a total lack of space. There are only two pools and one is utter chaos the other is the quite pool, haaaa about as quiet as downtown Baghdad. The hotel is way too big to allow any space or peace and quiet. Yes you can hire some private beds with a fab view but you are cut off from the pool. Aside from some really nasty Dutch folk that's about all I can be negative about. But be under no illusion, the place isn't big enough, there aren't enough sun beds and there's no chance of any privacy. The rooms are excellent, we were in block A and I'd suggest a ground floor room. The view is magic. A wee chap cones evey day to pop some water, coke and beer in your fridge and the rooms are cleaned daily. The Spanish clubs are Way better than the FC ones. Pony riding on Saturdays and they do a great show with the kids once every two weeks. The FC clubs are understaffed (this might not be so in August). The high ropes are great but the highlight is the entertainment at 10:00 in the main bar, get a seat early and watch the animal shows, they're great. The Spanish clubs run a big inflatables on Saturday morning. Please take a trip to the small beach it really is great and there are a couple of nice restaurants and bars it's worth the walk. Top tips: the drinks are mostly self service but take a plastic pint glass with you. The local cava is excellent And eat later which means the smaller canteen will be open which tends to be less chaotic . Also the snack bar is open 10:00 til 5:00 and does a bbq every day. There are a few bars but one u get to 5:00 the pool side ones close. The seating for the FC live and loud show (it's not I5 Live anymore) fills up double quick and again the area is too small. All in all its not too bad but having been to four villages before the accommodation here is way too big and the space about the place suffers. I wouldn't go back to The HV but I'll certainly go back to Tenerife.More

10 days for all inc newbies
We have three children, 1,2 and 4 yo. In the past holidays have been to apartments/villas and we have either bought in or eaten out. We have always had a great time and enjoyed new beaches and restaurants each day. Also, we have always hired a car and explored. This time, on review from friends we tried a HV all inc for the first time. It worked great for us, bought some sessions at the crÃ¨che for the young two. Our eldest was in kids club once or twice a day and loved it. This gave us two a bit of time together each day, which was ace. We either hit the gym or sunbathed. There is loads of entertainment going on at the resort from 10am until 11. Two pools, both lovely. One quiet and one noisy. Food is great, loads of choice. Drinks are good, again a good choice. One gripe is the sunbeds. When it is busy, if you don't go and reserve one before 5am (!!!) then you will have to ask the lifeguard to get you some when he starts. Clearly this means you'll be wherever you can fit them. The hotel have a rule of no reserving beds but in the ten days I was there I didn't see it being enforced. So, one gripe only, but awesome place. Will go again.More
