Value for money
Posted Jul 1, 2016
The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the beach, but it has its own pool. Overall, it offers value for money, as it is not expensive. We had gone for half board (breakfast and dinner included) and the food was quite tasty with a lot of different options. However, the dining room can get quite hot and staff are not always willing to open windows to let fresh air in. A lot of British tourists stay here, not always the most refined type and some of them can be quite rowdy, especially around the pool area. It's a 15 minute taxi drive from Tenerife Sur airport (it costs around 26 euros), so it's well connected. My main gripe about the room is the fact that there is only 1 plug to charge your phone and indeed hidden inside a cupboard. They should definitely add more plugs, especially next to beds. Other than that, the room offered all amenities you'd expect: TV with English, French, German, Italian and Spanish channels, A/C, complimentary toiletries and towels, etc. Our room overlooked the sea (which is a 10 minute walk), but others overlook the pool or the main road. The hotel staff was quite friendly, but some of them didn't speak English well at all. The sunbeds in the pool area can get occupied from the morning, so sometimes it can be tricky to find a spare sunbed. Playa de las Americas is not a very large resort anyway, so everything is within a 15 minute walking distance. The coach station is also close, maybe a 10 minute walk. The beaches are not bad, but the water is cold.
