We arrived at the hotel just before Midnight, and was dropped at the rear of the hotel by which can only be descrived as Big Brothers gate! We pressed all the buttons on the intercom as there were no instructions and was eventually greeted by a voice, who buzzed us in. We entered the hotel to be confronted by a long corridor with no sign of the reception - we had to ask a couple who were coming along the corridor where we should go. Eventually we found the reception on the 5th floor and checked in, the guy at reception was very helpful although his English was basic. He showed us to the restaurant where they had provided us with a simple cold meat salad, bread roll and jug of water. After this we found our room on the 4th floor overlooking the Dry River bed that you hear so much about. At around 2am were woken by what sounded like a farm - this was to be a staple part of the night time entertainment. From around 1am to 7am every night there was a chorus of Chickens and Cockrels chattering away - my Fiancee who is a very light sleeper found this to be distruptive. The bedS (yes you read that right, we had 2 single beds, not a double as we thought we had booked!) were basic - not much more than a fold out bed with a slatted bottom that you would provide a child . These slid around on the floor as you turn over during your sleep - anyone hoping for a romantic entaglement should be ready for more entertainment than they bargain for! The room was fairly small, but adequate for sleeping in but lacked Air conditioning - although we had a fan which was situated over the door - it kept my feet cool at least. The balcony overlooked the Chicken Hill but was better than the view on the other side of a street. The restaurant and kitchen were directly above our room so from around 5am we were greeted by the sound of trolley/carts being pushed over the tiled floors. We only got our sheets changed once in the week we were there, whereas we heard other people had theirs changed daily. Some rooms had washing machines and kettles, ours had neither. The food is basic, but quite enjoyable - I recommend the Wrinkly Potatoes and Mojos. There is always a baked fish dish and a meat in sauce dish - generally veal, pork or rabbit. If the food is too basic the surrounding area has plenty of cheap but well prepared food to buy. We were 'All Inclusive Lite' which turned out to be unnamed brands of spirits. The day time bar staff were helpful, polite and chatty, yet at night there was one particular guy on the bar who was grumpy, and I only saw him smile once in a week - usually he frowned or barked words in Spanish. Saying this if you were Spanish or female in a bikini you were fine. The bar stated that you had to wear footwear, a tshirt and be dry when you entered the bar - which yet again if you were Spanish, or female in a bikini this was forgotten. There were seats in the bar, but no stools as shown in the pictures. We ventured out most days and enjoyed the walk to the beach - which took about 15 minutes or so, but much longer back as this was uphill. There is a free bus which runs hourly and drops you 5 minutes from the beach. The bus has air conditioning but it still gets VERY hot and sweaty. The pool was basic, and adequate for the hotel - and situated on the roof - floor 6. There was a 7th "floor" which was a higher roof and this is where the sun loungers are - they are not by the pool as shown in the pictures. Overall I was satisfied with the hotel, but would not recommend it as there were other hotels in the area that appeared to be better equipped, and in a slightly better location. There is nothing for children/teens to do, and several turned to throwing the pool balls/cues into the pool while bored. I recommend going into Puerto de la Cruz, and exploring all the little side roads as you will find some lovely shops and great food. Loro Parque was fun, but their "goal" was rammed down your throats at everytime - they kept stating how they were doing this and that for the environment and kept asking for donations - it felt like a time share sales pitch at times, although the shows were fantastic and the animals were well looked after. If you want to eat out I would recommend La Bodega - we ate there twice and enjoyed it both times. The Paella there is great value and delicious!

Room Tip: Away from the dry river bed - not room 430!

We arrived at the hotel just before midnight and checked in. We had 4 rooms on the 1st floor. They were clean, but the terraces had a view of a wall. We went to the bar to get water for the night at 11.58pm and were greeted by the bar man mentioned in the other reviews- he served us but begrudgingly. By this stage we weren't feeling very positive about our hotel!!! However, the next day we asked to change rooms and the receptionist was superb. He changed us to rooms on the opposite side of the hotel with lovely balconies. The bar staff were fine. Yes, one of them is serious, but will chat if you're friendly with him. The rooms are basic, but clean, and the housekeeping staff were great. The food was good- plenty of choice, and wine with each meal. The restaurant staff were polite and attentive. The pool area looks onto mount tiede which was fabulous. The pool area is basic, but there are plenty of loungers and the bar is handy.
There is some entertainment, which varies in quality. The resort is pretty cheap for eating out, and the regular shuttle bus is great.
We had a good holiday. We expected basic when we booked, and that's what we got, but have no complaints at all.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on floors 4,5 or 6. Preferably on the bridge side.

The hotel is quite a distance from the main shopping/tourist area although there is a free hourly and prompt bus with a friendly driver.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was acceptable. The hotel at night was noisy due to guests leaving via our ground floor corridoor. The photos do not represent the current hotel as its in need of refurbishment. The rooms are clean but basic. The entertainment consists of a non speaking DJ who plays music from the 50-s to the 80s three nights week and a Spanish singer/ keyboard player twice a week. The German and Spanish guests loved it as they could waltz the night away.There is no entertainmnet during the day. This hotel is not suitable for children as theres nothing for them to do and some of them got bored and started to misbehave. The bar staff are strict with the all inclusive drinks ie if there are two persons in your party you get two drinks per round. The TV lounge is part of the bar and was on for two hours one night during our ten day stay after that the TV was covered with a sheet. If you want a holiday with no entertainment a small pool and some distance from the beach and shops this is the place for you. We wont go back to the Hotel Perla although we did meet some nice ladies from Staffordshire and had a laugh as they became the animacion team due to lack of entertainment.

Room Tip: Problaby third floor on the North side of the hotel

My boyfriend and I booked an all inclusive stay for 1 week here. The hotel itself is immaculate and the food is very good. We usually eat out at least a few times even when all inclusive, but had no desire to do so as the food was varied, plentiful and always fresh. The rooms are basic but clean. Unfortunately the beds are quite uncomfortable and my boyfriend has a bad back so he really struggled. There are lots of loungers at the pool - no need to do the usual holiday thing and get up at the crack of dawn to reserve one with your towel. They are situated on a different level to the pool, which I thought was great (it was lovely and quiet with no kids about). Please beware though that although it is a very cloudy part of the island, YOU WILL GET BURNED. I fell asleep for an hour and was purple for the rest of the holiday, Please wear sunscreen even in the clouds! Also, our room looked onto the garden side of the hotel, and as picturesque as it was, you are wakened every morning by birds talking to each other (cock a doodle do!) at around 4, then 7. If you are a light sleeper you may want to sacrafice the view and ask for a room at the other side. The other guests are very pleasant, and despite several nationalities, everyone was very friendly and respectful of each other, as were the staff. All in all a great week and I would definately go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the road side of the hotel if you don't want to be wakened by the birds

Very clean hotel with friendly staff. We were "all inclusive" which was good value. Easier to walk to the sea front then expected, although there was an hourly minibus 7 tmes a day. Unfortunately it had a habit of not turning up, so we learned a short cut to walk which only took 15-20mins. Quite a small pool on the roof near the bar. Sauna (but this was extra) Beautiful views of the ocean and volcano from the hotel roof. Plenty of sun beds, but in February it wasn't too busy so I don't know about the summer months. Food was plentiful with ample choice, except for desserts. Yogurt & fruit every day!!!! Lots of fresh fruit particularly at breakfast and plenty of wine with meals when all inclusive. This was useful as we were never told what other drinks were available with the "all inclusive", although we did have to pay for water.

Room Tip: 2 lifts and quiet area, so not much problem with rooms.
