This was a return visit to this hotel our first being in the early eighties. What's changed? The room quality had improved and were mostly spacious and well decorated. We had booked a sea view but were rather disappointed with our room as although it had a balcony with a sea view it was very noisy due to its close... More

We visited last year for 3 days and immediately wanted to return. We have just returned from a wonderful week. Hotel is spotlessly clean and staff, especially Roman, very polite and helpful. We upgraded to a room (212) overlooking the sun deck area - well worth 20 euros per day extra. Although we did not want half board, on this... More

The previous reviewer said it all. This is an excellent 3* hotel but the location of the property out into the sea with the sun terrace views over the bay with the kite and wind surfers make it outstanding. It is truly like being on a ship. We had 2 rooms, both on 3, one on east side right next... More

Medano hotel on Tenerife is unusual hotel settled on the same beach, and you have a feeling that you are in the sea the whole time because from the terase you can see the sea. Very interesting hotel who is worth to visit.

First lets get the bad portion of the review out of the way. We asked for a quiet room in writing, and we didn't get that. That really annoyed me. Only reason we didn't complain was mainly that the receptionist didn't look as if she would be conducive to one if we did. In any case, we liked the room,... More

Breezy but decent rooms, great breakfasts and reasonable All Inclusive food. A la Carte restaurant is very good. Spa closed early for works to be done which was a disappointment, very quiet, if.you like aeroplanes, no kids :-). Sometimes difficult to get a sunbed, staff are very good and there is a supermarket next door for nibbles and topping up... More

Loved this hotel. Stayed in room 501 last week, large room/bathroom, balcony and view out to sea. Pay for a sea view and a room as high up as possible.
