We arrived here on boxing day and stayed for 1 week, the hotel is impressive as we were coming into land the hotel was clearly visible as it is the tallest building at 17 storeys.
When we arrived at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised after reading other reviews, the first thing we wondered is if anyone would take our cases to the room and yes a very smart porter took our cases.
When we arrived at the room it was clean with good decor nice wood floor, two wardrobes and built in safe and small fridge with complimentary juice and water. The TV was bulky not the modern flat screen and the only english station was news 24, however free WI-FI throughout the hotel. We often find european beds a very little hard but this had some give. The bathroom had a large tub with shower over and nice fixtures including his and hers sink and a toilet separated from the bathroom by a glass door. When we reported the fridge not working and asked for a softer pillow this was attended to very quickly.
Breakfast was served on the first floor, there were good views of the beach and sea from most tables. The breakfast was buffet style i found the choice good lots of fresh fruit and juices,breads and cakes, cheeses and ham, cereals and dried fruit and nuts, and eggs and bacon which is cooked at the hot food station coffee and teas are brought by the waiters. We only had breakfast at the hotel so did not try out the rooftop restaurant.
This location is different than staying in one of the main holiday resorts. There were plenty of restaurants within 10 mins walk if you are prepared to explore the back streets including japanese and typical spanish tapas and a great pizza joint. There is a small bus station at the end of the beach where you can get a bus into Puerto del Carmen every 20min appox cost 1.5 euros each way and even cheaper if you want to go to Costa Teguise. There is also a taxi rank just a short distance from the hotel.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel we had a comfortable week relaxing and enjoying the sun we found the staff very pleasant and we paid very reasonable rates.
