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.

Fantastic family holiday
First of all - don't listen to the negative reviews, it's nonesense and clearly created to assist in some sort of claim because it was cloudy one day. The HV hotel is huge and fantastic. Clean, safe and everyone so friendly, from check in to check out. We had champagne reception on arrival and couldn't fault it at all. Had a slight problem with a leaking air don unit and Megan, one of the first choice reps at the hotel had it repaired within the hour. Food is ten out of ten. Drink is ten out of ten. The entertainers are amazing with the kids. Hannah, Callum and Matty deserve a knighthood. Try and see the Rolling Stones tribute band and Elvis. Such great nights. We have been twice now and just loved it. In the bad reviews it speaks of pool closures. There was a sign up and this was due to someone putting a baby in the pool without a nappy and an accident occurred. There has been no outbreak of anything and frankly it's a poor attempt at scaremongering by an idiot. Basic precautions will stop you getting an upset tummy on holiday. My two lads spent most of the fortnight underwater and no problems. Fair play to First Choice and Thompson - they've got it right. Enjoy your holiday!More
Amazing for families
We stayed for 2 weeks in May with our 7 year old daughter and 3 year old son and thought it was absolutely fantastic, we had tears from them both when we had to leave. There were so many activities going on that my daughter struggled deciding what she wanted to do. There were 2 kids clubs, first choice and hotel run, both were great. I was able to take my son to some of the hotel ones including biscuit making. Poolside activities were great as well. Food was extremely good, loads of choice. We really loved the hotel and will return. We also visited Loro Parc and Siam Water Park. They are definitely worth visiting, other water parks do not compare to Siam!More

We have just came back from a two week holiday at the HV Tenerife! It was fab. Arrived at hotel around 11pm, a quick speedy check in and was then taken to our room by golf buggy (we were in block H and near the high ropes and kids playground). On arrival in the room - which was very clean and spacious - waiting for us was a bag containing packs of sandwiches, yoghurts and fruit - a really nice touch! Pools...! We spent first day by the main pool / kids slide pool - and it was pretty busy! (Very busy!!) However - getting there after the welcome meeting we still managed to get three beds together! We spent the rest of the two weeks by the quiet pool - again it was busy but more room in the pool - only thing missing was the music and madness but still loads of fun for my son in the pool. We had no problem with sunbeds - my husband would usually be up around half eight which is his getting up time anyway! If there weren't any beds, the lifeguard would be more than happy to get some for you along with umbrellas! We did see one occasion were a holidaymaker removed towels from a bed and took it - but I suppose the beds had been reserved for a few hours and no one was on them! We had heard the main pool was closed at some points during our stay due to 'accidents' but we never encountered this at the quiet pool. Accidents are down to the holiday makers - not hotel!!!! Food...! I don't think I have been anywhere with more choice! My seven year old can be a fussy eater but he did not go hungry! From the huge variety at breakfast, the snack bar by the quiet pool, lunch buffet in main restaurant and then evening meal...! There were different themes in the evening which was nice - my favourite being the Oriental night! Chinese and sushi was amazing!!! We would have a bottle of wine with our meal in the evening so can't say we had an issue with waiting for drinks - but all you'd need to do is get a waiters attention or just help yourself! We ate at the a la carte restaurant one night - Italian. It was very nice and although the main meal wasn't piping hot, it was edible and so tasty! Service was great too! (Friends went a few nights before and said the service was appalling - couldn't fault it when we went). Drink...! Couldn't fault it! I was rather partial to the cava - so refreshing! My son loved the endless supply of slush! We visited the spa one afternoon as a family - it was really nice and even the little one enjoyed! Just wish we done it earlier in the holiday as perhaps we could have visited again then! We also booked the Ballinese beds for one day - it was so nice! Private terrace and cava and fruit delivered twice a day. Again, we wished we could've done it again but fully booked!! Overall, a fab holiday! A huge hotel which was always kept clean (hats off to the staff as they work non stop making sure the place is spotless!). Would def return but want to visit other Holiday Villages first!!! More

Travelled as a family with good friends. Children aged 10 and 5. We all had a cracking holiday. Children signed up to Razzamataz on the first day- Holly and Emily, thank you! The children loved their sessions with you and performing on the stage. Razzmadads- not to be forgotten!!! Plenty of food choice in the buffet restaurant. Bottles of wine served at the table if asked for. Enjoyed the Cava as part of the all inclusive! Spanish and First Choice reps worked tirelessly - children and adults entertained day and night! Highly recommend Siam Park- all inclusive tickets were worth every penny. Yellow submarine was a fab experience. (About an hour transfer) Overall, fab holiday that we will always remember. More

Perfect family holiday
Stayed for 2 weeks with a 2 year old. We asked for a quiet room when we booked and we were allocated O103 which faced the sea on the âgroundâ floor I suppose you could call it. The hotel is built into a hill but there is plenty of lifts if you donât fancy hills or stairs. The only gripe I have about the room and that is that the sofa bed isnât the comfiest in the world and didnât look that safe for a 2 year old. We had 2 single beds pushed together in the bedroom and the sofa bed. Not the best layout would have been better with 2 double beds. The food was great, plenty to eat, and a good variety. It was nice to have a bottle of wine on the table rather than chase someone to refill your glass. The first restaurant that they open I think is far superior than the spill over one. I just felt the staff were nicer and had a better feel about it. There is so much to do for kids around the place. Julia loved the soft play area, the pools, the sand at the volleyball court. There are several kids pools and are reasonably warm in the afternoons. Then there is the entertainment. WOW. There is a large first choice presence around the hotel, the entertainment teams work some crazy hours and all seem to really enjoy themselves. We never used any of the kids clubs so I canât comment on them but the night time entertainment was first class. All day all Julia could talk about was âwhen is the dancing?â We have so many videoâs of Julia going mad at Jellyman and the Live and Loud dance. The quiz was a good time to grab something to eat and then it was the show. I honestly believed that they were miming to the songs as it was that good. The shows were fantastic the highlight was Luke and Holly singing Love the way you Lie with the roles reversed. Hannah doing Fresh Prince of Bel Air straight nearly had me in tears. I canât comment on the hotelâs entertainment because we only went to the First Choice ones. An unexpected bonus from the entertainment team was Julia eating her vegetables as Russell the Brussels told her too! not quite 5 a day but weâre getting there. The beach is a bit of a walk from the back of the hotel and was clean and well patrolled by lifeguards. It would be nice if the hotel put a water tap/hose at the back gate to allow you to rinse off before heading to your room. The only option we had was to use the shower in our room and that wonât help the drains. Overall we had an amazing fortnight and canât wait to go back again.More
