Holiday Village Tenerife

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.

Very good place but some minor issues

We went to this holiday village as part of a large family group of 6 adults and 5 children. When we arrived it was almost 9pm and so we were rushed to the restaurant to eat before it closed, we had been travelling all day and it would have been better to allow us to wash up and change first. We were given a map to find our room which was not very clear and it was darkness by that time and hardly any lighting so it took ages to find it. Once we found it however, the room was lovely and big, was traditionally decorated and very comfortable. The next morning we realised just how big this village was, be prepared for a bit of walking! The pools were of a good size but not big enough considering the size of that place And became a bit crowded. Luckily we had some early risers who managed to save some sunbeds for our party otherwise we struggled to get sunbeds together. The main part of the village where all your facilities are was really lovely and kept clean. Outside the hotel you had to walk down a long hill to get to anywhere, the beach was a waste of time, black sand that was extremely hot and burnt you and it was tiny. We were there for 15 minutes before giving up and started exploring the strip of shops, although not many shops unless you wanted beach stuff. The main town down the opposite side of the hill than the beach had more to do and would recommend taking a boat trip to watch dolphins as we all loved it. The staff were friendly especially in the main restaurants. The snack restaurant by the kids pool, the food wasn't very nice and the tables were not kept clean as kids tend to make a mess and leave it but staff were not clearing it quickly. The entertainment was very good and all the shows were worth watching til the end. The entertainment venue was big enough to hold most of the guests but if you arrived late then you may not get any seats. We often enjoyed to sit in the quiet bar even with our kids with us this didn't get busy and we could relax whilst the kids played games. A big let down for us was the location, we like to explore and go on trips but we found when we went on trips we were the first to be picked up and last to be dropped off, we went to loro parque which took 2 hours to get there and then 2 hours to get back, this was difficult with a 4 year old that wouldn't sit still on the coach. A nice place if your happy to spend most of your time at the village but sadly all of us agreed that the location ruined it slightly.More


Just booked to go again !!

Little worried at first reading some reviews but could not fault it. Food was great yes some is repetitive but I found lots of new food every day to eat. Pools were good I spent most of my time at the quieter pool as the pool bar food was great fresh paella every day there was some amazing views at the tables where you can eat. some noises were coming from people playing in the pool with their kids laughing and having fun God forbid it, sorry but some one posted about kids playing and being a bit loud which I find ridiculous at a FAMILY resort. My apartment was clean spacious and I had a beautiful view of the sea. Staff I found to be extremely polite and helpful. Taxis were cheap at 4 euro to the shop and back. To be honest I'm never expecting great entertainment at these places but it was brilliant some thing new every night. I loved the walking down the streets to the sea front and around the marina some nice shops. It has a nice black sand beach which I haven't seen since I was child and so I thought I wouldn't like it still but I loved it the sand was very soft beds to hire with a life guard standing watching every one. But the walk back is hard with a pram so we used to get a taxi and they only charged us 3 euro again I thought was cheap. Los giantes is defiantly the prettiest of areas of Tenerife as I have been them all. If you want clubs and a loud night life this is not the place but they do have some nice bars and taverns around the front. The spa was so relaxing and modern. Also the TV in our room had lots of free view channels bbc 1 kids channels ect which is nice to watch lying in bed laughing at how cold it is a home. I am a bit hard to please but this one done it for me. More

Stacey S,

Winter break with family.

This was our 9th winter visit here,its changed slightly as the noise level seemed to have doubled. However its still a great place to stay if you dont mind a bit of daytime children playing noise. We booked the balenise day beds on the family days these cost around 30 euro a day these were really nice and value for money with cava and fruit delivered to our beds twice a day.Also the stunning views and sunsets were superb. I would like to add though that the beds would be more tranquil if the quiet pool was actually quiet,as the beds are located atthe back of this pool. ****Really,hotel managment im sure you can arrange for this pool to go back to its original purpose of being a quiet pool.**** The food was ok,lunch outside by the snackbar was our favorite meal having freshly cooked food paella,pork and koftas with salad were a favourite. Still by far the most reasonably priced(just booked next years though and noticed the price is still steadily on the rise) staff friendly winter break by far. Just to add, myself and family havent had any illness in all the times we have visited,so to read the other comments i was suprised,my other half suffers with crohn's disease so the slightest of bug could have in bed for days.I guess we are lucky.More

Decent value for money with bugs and cockroaches at no extra cost

This place is okay. We went at half term and it was really busy with loads of noisy kids, but as we had 1 of our own and were travelling with a couple with another 2 we couldn't really complain about that. There was loads of stuff for the kids to do, organised activities and 3 swimming pools with a slide. I was a bit disappointed as I like to play football and I turned up for the advertised adult football and was told that I cold have a ball and organise a game for myself if I wanted but they couldn't be bothered to organise it for me. The pitch was full of little kids and only a couple of adults were waiting to play - so I gave up and went to the gym instead. The foot was pretty poor to be honest. The restaurants were so noisy and stressfull - I used to dread meal times. Even the a la carte restaurants were stress full and busy. They made you all line up outside like a school canteen, lol. The toilets in the reception were full of cockroaches, and so was the restaurant. The room was okay and it was clean with a comfy bed. I won't be back to this hotel. It was cheap but it showed.More

Hotel Cryptosporidium

We've been to this hotel before and thought it the bees knees - but not this time. The food is good but the dining experience was awful - quite unbearable. The dining room is unbearably noisy and hot. It is also not self service for drinks and almost impossible to get the attention of the waiters/waitresses. No option to eat outdoors - a dozen tables on the terrace but always full with people standing waiting for you to finish your meal. Have to pay to use the wifi and the room safe and the indoor pool and trampolines.The noise around the pools and the behaviour of some families is not fitting for a four star hotel. Plastic food plates and cups left behind (when there are plenty of bins) full of uneaten food, kept getting blown into the pools - disgusting. Numerous sunbeds broken from clinically obese guests. On several days saw fat people beached on sunbeds needing assistance to get to their feet - unbelievable. The notion that the hotel has a quiet pool is a joke - this is a hotel for noisy families only. Like several hundred others last year, five of our party was struck down with cryptosporidium. - which was confirmed upon our return. Our bedroom smelled like a gastro-ward for the last two days of our holiday. The hotel called out the local doctor who never mentioned the establishment had a major crypto problem. One member of our party came off the plane and was admitted to hospital for seven days upon our return. We notified First Choice/Thomsons but two months they still have done nothing other than to ask to see our test results. The pools were all drained over December and the filters changed. Don't know if there have been any more problems since then. Of course, hotel is still denying it has a problem. This hotel used to be good and still has its loyal client base, but it is going downmarket under the new management and I would not recommend it to anyone with higher standards of hygiene and behaviour. Won't be back.More
