"Green Garden Resort and Suites" or "Bitacora" ??

We are hoping to Visit Playa de las Americas (and Tenerife) for the first time at the end of May (School Hols) We are going for All inclusive for once and we have narrowed it to the 2 hotels in the title...

The Green Garden Resort and Suites seem ok but seem a little more remote and the Bitacora seems like a better location, but some recent tripadvisor comments suggest it had become tired. The Price is about the same, so its hard to decide...

Any advice?

Bitacora is in a great location,easy to get around without paying for taxi/buses, Guess it depends if you are bothered about location really IMO for location only i would book Bitacora,i have not stayed in any of your choice but we had a look around Bitacora last May and spoke to a few people staying there and they said it was lovely.

We have stayed at The Bitacora 4 times and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It is very well located and a really lovely hotel - staff are brilliant and we found the food excellent.

I havent stayed at the green Garden but it is a fair trek out of the resort compared to the Bitacora unless you get a cab.

Bitacora would get my vote.

IMO the green garden is a much nicer looking place, however the location is like other people have said a cab ride into the centre (or a fair walk). Also, the hotel vulcano ( which is the bitacoora's sister hotel) is also a great option, the food is amazing!

The Bitacora - if not just for the fantastic food.

The hotel has been/is being refurbished - and don't forget, that you can actually request the room you want (dependent on availability) . When I used to book direct with Springhoteles.com , I always asked for a specific room (number) on the 7th floor meaning great views.

Green Garden is a good 25 / 30mins before you get anywhere ,so imo its a taxi at least coming back at night if not going too! Bitacora has shops bars and beaches all around it ...from Green Garden you basically have to walk to the Bitacora before you can even get anywhere .EL Camisson is your nearest area of bars / restaurants however though it doesnt bother me ,it does tend to be mainly local Canarians that use these ,especially if football is on ...they go frantic ! great fun to watch them though

Bitacora every time for good food & location - you are so close to beach, restaurants/shops/bars of all prices. It is also a flat area and well lit so a pleasure to walk around.

I would definately book a pool view room as there is one side that looks towards tennis courts that gets very little sun and not much of a view. Whatever you pay extra for the pool view room you would easily save in getting taxis up to Greeen Golf.

Looks like a no brainer from the replies you're getting !!

i would pick the bitacora over the green garden, if you prefer to be right in the middle of things, green garden ideal though if you just want a relaxing holiday in the sun.
