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.
