“A pleasant stay”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

We stayed in Dania Park Room 1434 in late March 2012. It is a large room with ample storage and three beds.
There have been some accurate and detailed reviews of the Hotel very recently and I will try to avoid repetition.
Room has a fridge but AC was not always working. The door to the room does not always lock when you shut the door - p[lease check that it has done so before you walk away. On the evening of our arrival, there were no towels in the room and the safe wouldnt work. So a point worth checking. These matters were soon resolved. For the first time I think in over 20 visits, there was no basket of bananas in the room - disappointing. The music channels available in the room in the past also seem to have gone. We enjoyed them on our previous visits.
One of our first tasks on arrival at any resort is to hire a safe and leave all valuables, passports, tickets, money, credit cards etc in there before venturing out. The hire charge here is too high - 20 euros for a week! I think the use of safes should be encouraged by the hotel, the local police, Insurance Companies and the local tourist Boards - and one way of doing this is through keeping hire charges low - 5 euros a week seems fairer!
We always have our breakfast in Magec conservatory area. There is more light and a more pleasant atmosphere there. A microwave has been added to the facilities available - and our Spanish guests seem to use it for heating up milk for cereal. Always a big crowd around it at breakfast.. Quality of breakfasts is variable - we had some decent and some poor breakfasts. Bought our own sliced peaches and fruit juice from the supermarkets - at 1 euro each, they were a bargain! Same for the evening meals. They mix fish into every salad on the menu - making them unpalatable for me. Wine by the bottle is cheap - less than 6 euros a bottle. There seems to be no dress code in the dining room. Many Spanish visitors come on an All Inclusive basis and they are offered wine and water with their meals. There was always freshly grilled meat and fish available but the quality of vegetables was poor. We had some very pleasant lunches in the town and took our chance with dinners at the hotel.
Sun comes round on to the balcony from around 2pm - for the rest of the afternoon. Great for sitting and lunch. Until then, the top floor pool and sunbathing areas are pleasant places to be on. Lovely view of the snowless Teide from the roof terrace.
Some Spanish and English teenagers on holiday were rather lively and irritating at times. No one in charge!
There are a lot of Spanish tourists in the hotel - anyone who wants to improve their Spanish could do worse than spend a few weeks here - they are very keen to talk to you and always in Spanish! The evening entertainment is focussed on the Spanish guests - they are very fond of line dancing and bingo. But going out for a walk and a coffee/brandy in the town square after dinner is our favourite activity anyway so we didnt spend much time indoors.
We discovered a new Restaurant - El Correillo - five minute walk from Plaza del Charco with some excellent tapas for lunch. Try their different menus and A La Carte dishes. Highly recommended. There are many others around the Town Square - try them for yourselves.
We paid £675 for a week's Half Board. Considering what we paid, we got value for money. The hotel could do with making small improvements which wouldnt cost much but would make for a more enjoyable stay. The hotel is not meant for a gourmet visitor but is adequate for most of us. Just find ways round issues.

Room Tip: ask for a room on a high floor facing the old Bus station.

Without a shadow of a doubt, this hotel has one great thing going for it - the location - right in the middle of town! Everything within easy walking distance - and Puerto de la Cruz certainly had a lot to offer - restaurants, bars, lovely shops and the superb lido. We had lovely sunny weather throughout the whole of our stay putting paid to the idea that the sun only shines in the south of the island. The hotel was clean, the rooms were spacious (and we had a fantastic view of Teide from our balcony) and the staff were friendly. The roof top with pools was a real sun trap. We opted just to eat our breakfast in the hotel and had our evening meals out (our choice!) - the local restaurants were just too much of a temptation! Breakfast was a great selection of pastries, breads, fruits, cereals, yoghurt, eggs (boiled and fried), bacon, tomoatoes etc with coffee, tea, juices. Couldn't complain at all and especially so for the price we paid. Great value! Would defnitely go back. Thanks Puerto and thanks Dania Park - we had a brilliant time. Tip: Get a transfer from TFS airport to Puerto de la Cruz via speedytransfers.co.uk We only paid £34.50 per person return journey! Bargain.

This hotel is in a great location. Close to the main square with lost of local bars and restaurants in the vicinity. The rooms are spacious and very clean and the showers have a constant supply of hot water which is really great as often large hotels do not seem to be able to supply this at peak times.
People complain about the food but the breakfasts that we had were of good quality with lots of bread and pastries, fruit, yogurt , boiled eggs , bacon etc and with so many really good value canarian restaurants situated within walking dstance why opt for HB when eating out is such a pleasure.
Also this hotel is very cheap so what do people expect !! I think it is excellent value for money.
The roof top pools are good with fantastic views and there were plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have views of the sea

having been to this hotel before it is located in good area but sits up small hills ,as for the food it has got VERY VERY poor ,we just have just returned after 1 week and only had one hot meal in that time this is the worst food we have had in any hotel we have stayed in and we usually go 2 holidays a year and we are usually easily pleased and not fussy with the food, but on this occasion fussy would have been an understatement.

Room Tip: not on opposite the lifts

We booked a late deal, and stayed at the Dania Park, we read the reviews on the hotel and like everything you have doubts. The hotel is very nice and clean, the rooms spacious, extra pillows would have been a great help. The balcony was a good size. The food however left a lot to be desired but we managed on what was for offer, not a great deal of variety and always cold, we ate in the Magec sometimes the menu would be slightly different but again cold. The staff were friendly although they did not speak much english, but again we managed to understand each other. The rooftop pool area was a nice size, shame the pools were not heated a bit. We found the pool bar and opened and closed to suit rather than time. Nice location for walking to beach, harbour, shops and walking distance to Loro Parque, although there is a train you can get but takes nearly as much time to the stop as it is to walk to the Parque. We were suprised to see a McDonalds there...

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have good sun in the afternoon, a lovely view of Mount Teide, roads can be a bit...

One of the biggest problems in the tourist industry at the moment, is that many travellers dont understand the hotel "star rating" system. I would actually be happy if they did away with it completely, as I think it has become very misleading. I can say this having travelled all over the world, staying in both luxury and basic accommodation. In my experience, the star rating often translates (and quite understandably too) in to lots of people having unfulfilled expectations.

What I would say to anyone is forget about the star rating, instead look at what you are going to spend.

This hotel cost two people £280 for a week, half board. You could pay that for a single night in London, Paris, or any major city. Ok perhaps a little unfair to compare Puerto de la Cruz to one of the aforementioned places, but it is a hot spot for Tenerife. What I am trying to say here is that for the price, we got a good deal.

The room was very standard; double bed, tv (BBC news was the only english channel btw), balcony, fridge, safe (you paid for the safe, 15 euro per week with a ten euro deposit), air con. It was clean, with a nice bathroom (bath/shower) - plenty of room. Would have been nice to have some extra pillows, but I am sure if we had asked, they would have gotten us some. No tea making facilities, but then some hotels do, some dont. All in all, it was perfectly adequate for our needs.

The room at night was a little noisy up until about midnight, but then then the hotel is in the middle of a town. If you want peace and tranquility you dont book this hotel, or any other in the town - you book one away from the hustle and bustle.

The staff were pretty friendly - the maids always had a smile, and the two receptionists we talked to were always helpful, but then we didnt really have any problems (I dont think you really know a hotel until you have had a problem).

The biggest plus for us was the location of this hotel. It was walking distance (20-30 minutes) to Loro Parque, it was literarily right next to the bus terminal, where you get to anywhere on the island (we went to Santa Cruz which was well worth it, and the butterfly house at Icod De Los Vinos, which was definitely NOT worth it). You could also easily walk in to the main hub of the town where all the shops were - simply perfectly placed for us. We also walked to the Botanical Gardens, but this was quite a way - probably would recommend hopping on the bus if I did it again.

We were thinking of going to Mount Teide, however from what we could see, there seemed to only be one bus there in the morning, which left at 9:15. We also found out that the cable car to the top was 25 euros each! which seemed rather excessive for a 10 minute ride - so we didnt bother.

The main negative point about the hotel, which I guess was the same for many people was the food, HOWEVER, I have stayed at other places with far worse food. Buffets are always going to be hard for hotels, as you have to mass produce large volumes of food which cater for a wide variety of tastes. I think it is important to bare in mind that the cliental of this hotel seemed to be predominantly old people (most seemed to be over 50/60), and with this in mind I wasn't surprised to see fairly bland basic food. I am not suggesting for any moment that old people dont eat exotic foods, but if my nan is anything to go by, if she eats anything spicy, she ends up popping Rennies like there is no tomorrow.

Personally I think the hotel are just playing it safe, and this leads to very basic and repetitive food. I am not suggesting that the other reviewers are wrong, but for us the food was always cooked properly & the quality was about what we would expect (especially for the money we paid). If I had paid say double, then yes, I would have certainly wanted more choice.
Most breakfasts you could get the usual sausage, egg, bacon, cereal, cheese, cold meats, toast, and assorted pastries. For dinner there was usually some sort of fish, chicken, potatoes, salad, cold meats, cheese - not a great selection, but we usually found something there we liked. One evening they did something that lots of other hotels do, which really peeves me - they put fish in everything...! I dont eat fish, so we went across the road to the Magec (we were in the Dania), and we ate there.

I would like to say that I do feel that in some way, we (as tourists) are (or I should say were) partly to blame for the lack of choice & imagination, which wasn't only apparent in our hotel - looking at the menus of many of the restaurants in the town, they were very similar - egg n chips, sausage n chips, pizza, etc. I have no doubt that this rather outdated view of what we (as tourists) like/want to eat, has come about from years of Rab C Nesbit-esque visitors - especially in the 70's.

I had a flash back to the old carry on aboard movie, "there iz sausage n chippings, egg n chippings....."

Of course not everywhere is like this, if you dig hard enough you will find some restaurants that serve some more "local" & inventive fair. Once place I can recommend is the Chinese International Restaurant, located on San Telmo Ave, part of the main walkway by the sea. It's close to the big Casino. It has an excellent buffet, and we paid 17 euros, which included two soft drinks & ice cream. The food was very well cooked & tasted delicious. As it was actually above a cafe, you could look out and get a good view of the sea & people watch.

So in summary - if you pay close to what we paid, and you can live with the bland choice of food, then yes, it's worth it. Just remember, dont expect Mexico type hospitality, this is still Europe!

Would I go back, I certainly wouldn't rule it out.
