Luabay Costa Los Gigantes

This place comes with a big lagoon pool and an à la carte restaurant. It’s also got some spectacular views.

This hilltop hotel will be renamed Be Live Costa Los Gigantes from November 2015. It has views of the epic Los Gigantes cliffs, as well as across the ocean to neighbouring La Gomera. It’s in a quiet spot, but it’s still less than 10 minutes’ walk to the beach.

The hotel has a trio of pools, including a big lagoon number. Elsewhere, there’s a buffet restaurant with panoramic sea views, and another à la carte option. Then there are live shows in the music hall.

brilliant hotel

This hotel is a beautiful large complex but is easy to find your way around our suite was spotless with flat screen tv in the lounge and bedroom with english channels .If you are a firstchoice guest you receive free wifi ask at reception .The dining room is big enough for all its guests and the menu is very comprehensive . Two very large pools with plenty of sunbeds . In the evening we used the piano bar but there is a large entertainment venue . the staff at this hotel are very helpful and made our stay exceptional . will definately be going back againMore

Great Winter break in Tenerife

We stayed here as a family just after new year (4 Jan) . I was really surprised just how busy it was with families from all over, Britain, Holland, Germany, France etc ,as we had taken our kids out of school for a week. Even though it was busy there was plenty of sun loungers and no queuing at the bars. Breakfast time could be really busy , they have 2 restaurants which was fine , but after a couple of days they closed one , so it could take you time to find a vacant table. The food was very good , with a wide variety of food , they have themed nights every night , which was Oriental, Italian, Mediterranean, International and Mexican. Drinks are good in the restaurant , beer and wine is decent enough. The staff in the restaurant were very nice and helpful, unlike some hotels I have been too. They have A la Carte nights , Grill, Italian and Mexican which is in another restaurant, you have to book this on your arrival as it gets very busy ,as there are just 2 sittings and its a different night each night. Lunch is in the restaurant near the main activity pool , which again has a fantastic variety , something for everyone, and good quality food. Drinks are good , pool bar you can help yourself to beer, soft drinks, milkshakes, and you can also get cocktails and ice cream. At the main bar in the hotel you can get all your usual drinks , cocktails, spirits and Cava in a real glass. Tea, coffee, beer and wine you can help yourself too. The hotel has a great entertainment programme for kids and adults , during the day all the activities are based around the main pool which is heated ,water polo, aerobics etc, there is another quiet pool right next to it but its not heated, so very cold. There is a slide for the kids with a kids pool which is also heated. There is also football on for ages 8-12 at the pitches, next to the high climbing ropes, and kids park, and also other activities, darts, archery etc. The evening entertainment is varied , on our week's stay there was a magic show, indian dancing, games nights which was good fun and a Queen tribute. The hotel itself is really nice , definitely 4 star dining and decor, the rooms are really large , they are in blocks , ours looked over the football pitches and towards the sea , so was nice and quiet. The rooms have 2 separate bedrooms , one with table, chairs and mini bar and balcony. Both have flat screen TV , with some good satellite channels. The rooms get cleaned every day with clean towels if needed . We did venture out of the hotel , and walked down to Playa Arena took about 10 minutes downhill , where there are shops, bars and restaurants. We also took the bus to Los Gigantes , where there is a lovely marina, shops and restaurants etc , which took about 15 minutes, you can walk but would take about 30-40 minutes. We also did the Mount Tiede tour with a local excursion shop , worked out at 76 euros for family of 4 , for a half day tour, the only negative was as we were first to be picked up , it took about 1 1/2 hours to pick everyone else up from their hotels in Costa Adeje and Las Americas before we headed up the mountain , at that time of year it was freezing and snowing at the furthest point so dress for it, and the cable car ride was closed due to the weather. On the way back we were first to get dropped off as we came down a different route , so it balanced out. All in all we had a great holiday with fantastic weather it was 22-23 degrees on average every day , but cooler at night , and would definitely return to the Luabay Hotel. Also if you travel with Thomson/First choice ask the reception for the Wifi code for your room as its free and also you can get it in your room.More

Smashing Hotel

Had a week here in January and was surprised to find that between booking Hotel Luabay and arrival the hotel had become Be Live Family. We were looking for a quiet week and despite the number of families with small children we stll managed to have an excellent week. Lovely junior suite with a south facing balcony and sea view. Very high standard of furnishing and equipment. Food was excellent with plenty of choice, breakfast and dinner were a bit like the school canteen but lunch, which was served in another restaurant was a relaxing pleasure. Two pools meant that it was possible to have peace and quiet at one of them while the other had lots of activities. The staff were a pleasure to deal with from reception to the bar and cleaning staff all were unfailingly cheerful and professional. My initial misgivings were soon put to rest and we had a great weekMore

DON'T GO UNLESS YOU HAVE KIDS!

We went in January in the mistaken belief that most children would be at school, but no, the hotel was full of Scandinavian families with children and the noise in the dining room was unbelievable! Our room was great and kept very clean. It was a late booking, but a bad choice for us. Only decent food was at lunchtime, we felt. The all inclusive deal was very generous - you could have drunk all day had you wished!More
