A spacious beach is the icing on the cake at this hotel, which comes with 4 pools and restaurants.
This huge place is split between a main building and an annexe across the gardens. Just over the road there’s a huge sandy beach, and Puerto del Carmen is a half an hour walk away, or 5 minutes in a taxi.
The hotel does well for pools, with 4 plus a couple of extra ones for kids. There’s a quartet of restaurants, including a Mexican. As for activities, there’s everything from archery to art classes.

We stayed here in October. The hotel is lovely! Room was clean and spacious, just what you need. The pool areas were clean and always could get a sunbed. Loved the bartenders at the pool bar, such friendly people!! The buffet was that what you would expect but something special everyday (there were snails and rabbit!) The themed restaurants were lovely and served beautiful food. Location was peaceful, close to the beach and just a short stroll from the shops and bars if you wanted them. All in all everything was perfect, we didn't want to go home!! And was even looking at staying for 3 extra nights. Would deffo go again.More
Just got back from 7 day holiday with our 19 and 21 year olds. I was worried they would be bored as we have not been away together for a few years. But we all loved it. Food was great, bit repetitive but fine. The hotel was clean and spacious. The entertainment staff were great, they all worked so hard. There were things to do all day if you wanted it but also able to relax without being hassled by the entertainment team. My only gripe was as soon as you put your knife and fork down they cleared it away. In my opinion they should wait for everyone on the table to finish. But otherwise excellent and enjoyable holiday.More
Don't listen to the bad reviews!
Myself & my partner stayed here for a week and we didn't have any complaints. The room was spacious with plenty of storage, always super clean! The staff were all more than friendly greeting you everytime you walked past (even the cleaners, maintenance etc). We only ate in the hotel a couple of times the food was as expected not bad at all but when you have to have something there for everyone you seem to end up with a bit of everything on your plate. The pool areas were lovely both really clean. We prepared the quieter pool where there wasn't music or so many children running around. The hotel also has a back gate which leads straight to the beach! We only had 2 small faults with the whole trip when we booked Thompson stated we were 400m from bars & restaurants. This is true however to get to the main strip is about a 30-40 minute walk. The second fault isn't really a fault it's more of a personal preference, once checking in it took us 10 minutes to reach our room from reception across a long bridge (we are fast walkers) anyone with walking problems I'm not sure this hotel would be suited to them as amenities are distanced. Apart from these we had an amazing holiday!!More
