When we first arrived we were downhearted as the hotel looked a mess. The next morning was not to bad though the location is brilliant as it is in-between playa and costa adeje and only a ten min walk to either. The food was ok a bit repetitive but edible. The rooms were not brill and not cleaned very often...
