Hotel Las Aguilas
Ranked #8 of 82 Hotels in Puerto de la Cruz
Reviewed 5 August 2013

As this was our 1st all inclusive holday as a family our expectations were very high. The hotal Aguilas was a very nice hotel in an excellent location. The staff worked very very hard and the cleanliness and service and friendliness at bar and resteraunt were faultless. As an English family we found it a little difficult to get information out of the front desk (more geered towards their German clients) but this was not necessaraly a problem. The animation team again worked very hard and were very enthusiatic at getting people to join acctivities. These and the evening were very focused on a family hotel which the Las Aguilas is definately one. It would be nice to have a little more adult entertainment after the evening show and I am sure the residence would not have minded paying for drinks (as we did ) after 11.00 if the entertainment was good. We were a little dissappointed with the quality of beer and wine (but hey you get what you pay for!) The food was plentiful all be it a little bland for our tastes and breakfast and dinner could be a little like being at the school canteen. It wouold have been nice to see a few more smiling faces (we are on holiday for goodness sake) and towards the end of our 11 days I was getting a little upset that no one said please, thanks you or excuse me. If the hotel was a little more excusive I would have paid more as said it had all the basics right. On the whole it was a "Good" break not "very good" but worth what we paid.

Room Tip: Ours was overlooking the sea as suggested on Trip advisor and was really nice.

We have just returned from two weeks in this hotel and cannot praise it highly enough.

Last year we had the holiday from hell (see my review for the Caleta Gardens Hotel), and this was the polar opposite.

The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and the rooms cannot be faulted either.

I went with my wife and our two daughters (aged 14 and 9) and we all felt the same about the excellent standards of the hotel.

The food was spot on, and the staff did not rush you if you arrived just before the service was due to finish - for example the evening meals were served from 19:00 - 22:00, and you had just as much choice at 22:00 as you did at 19:00 and you could still sit and eat without feeling rushed.

The food choice was wide, varied and well cooked and catered for all of our tastes.

The staff helped us with everything we needed, from packed lunches for day trips, through to which pharmacies were open on a Sunday (when my youngest needed some medication).

The courtesy bus into the main town was punctual and reliable.

There were three pools available and at no point did we have to get up early to reserve any sunbeds......every day we wandered down to the pool after breakfast and were able to get sunbeds with umbrellas without any problem.

The snack bar near the main pool provided pastries as well as salads, hot dogs, lasagne, squid, fish etc., so there was never any point during the day when you would go hungry (we were all inclusive...so I cannot comment for those on half board etc.,). There was even a coffee machine which provided extremely top quality coffee.

A couple of minor 'niggles' were that the TV in our room only had three english channels (and they were all news channels). The evening entertainment was in a room with large pillars, and if you didn't get a seat in the middle of the pillars you couldn't see very much, and you do have to accept that the hotel is set aside from the main town centre, so if you want to explore Puerto de la Cruz etc., you do have to rely on the courtesy bus or pay for a taxi.

One point to note, for the first week we were (or felt like we were) the only english family in the hotel as it is primarily occupied by germans, and even during our second week I would say that it was 80% occupied by german nationals.

One last comment on the 'personable nature' of the hotel staff, my youngest daughter lost her white teddy at the begining of our holiday, and just before we went home, the housekeeping team had found the teddy and returned it to us...cleaned and washed !!!

Would we stay at this hotel again......yes, most definitely.

Room Tip: We had a room with the view of Mount Tiede (rather than overlooking the pool), and it was quiet each...

Rooms (Mountain View Suite):
Positives:
-huge balcony
-huge room complete with kitchen area, seating/TV area, bathroom, bedroom and balcony
-generally very clean apart from a few worn/moldy tiles that cannot be cleaned
Neutral:
-a big bed but not especially comfortable as there was 2 single beds pushed together
Negatives:
-the jacuzzi setting on the bath, when turned on, smelt like drains
-the shower head would only stay up and a certain angle and the temperature didn't hold very well
-the English TV channels were very limited to only 3 news channels

Food
Positives:
-such a large selection at every meal including hot meats, cold meats, pastas, salad, fruit, ice-cream, water, juices, tea, coffee etc
-we only had lunch in the restaurant once because the snack bar was so good and convenient (we loved the ice-cream)
Neutrals:
-some of the food was a little odd, meatballs for breakfast for example, but i guess the hotel has to cater for all guests; the food was quite German orientated
-the food did become a little repetitive but that is to be expected when going all inclusive
-Negatives:
-the orange juice from the drink machine was gross!


Pool/Pool Area
Positives:
-both pools were beautiful, however we preferred the pool by the snack bar as it was central to the hotel and it's facilities i.e. food, drink, toilets etc
-there were plenty of sunbeds at all times of day
-great for both young and old
Neutrals:
-at times there was a shortage of parasols
Negatives:
-i wasn't too keen on the fact the sun loungers were on grass as it would stick to your feet and, if your feet were wet, cause them to get muddy (i guess though this does stop people falling over if they have wet feet!)

Other
Positives:
-the animation team were great and very friendly. Although we didn't have children with us and didn't wish to take part in the activities they regularly advertised, there was plenty of opportunity for kids and adults to have fun and try news things i.e. water polo, tennis, stretching etc.
-the views were incredible everywhere
-the hotel had their own free shuttle bus, taking guests into puerto de la cruz, which was very handy
-there was a great variety of entertainment in the evening
-the weather, although a little cloudy in the mornings and a little in the afternoon, was perfect. Very hot, with a little wind.
Neutral:
-this wasn't a problem at all for us because we didn't go on holiday to necessarily make friends, but the guests were largely German and Spanish
-when we arrived the man working on reception spoke very little English which made it rather difficult to understand where to find our room etc, but we were given a piece of paper with lots of information written on it so this wasn't so much of a problem. I believe this is why many other people have reviewed the staff at the hotel to be rude, yet i believe they come across this way because their knowledge of the English language is limited
-the hotel isn't near anything at all as it sits on top of large hill/mountain. This didn't matter too much because we were all inclusive but, when we did venture down the hill one evening to lidl, we had to cross over a very busy roundabout which was rather interesting! ..as was the walk back up the hill!
Negatives:
-wifi was very expensive! $5 a day!

Room Tip: Definitely, definitely choose all inclusive!

We had a wonderful vacation there. Hotel is located on a hill some 5-8 min from town (taxi/bus) with an amazinig view of the Atlantic ocean. Staff is friendly and it is clean. So lets start with some hotel details. (we had a suite as we are 4 people)

+ Clean and cozy
+ Rooms are quite big. This includes the bath as well - for a hotel it's huge (jackuzzi bathtub, bidet)
+ Beds are really comfortable (drapes have almost a full blackout if you need it)
+ Large balcony
+ There is a kitchen box with a sink and cooking top.
+ 3 pools - one is right infront of the hotel the other two are located to the side (one is a childrens pool), all are made suitable for small children too and are cleaned on a daily basis.
+ Animation is nice. There is a kids club - nothing fancy but twice a day, Ivan, is making sure that the children have fun.
+ There are 2 pool tables, cheep once :)
There is also football and a ping pong table
There is a chess graound with big figures :) Real fun to play with
+ View of the sunset from the furthest pool is really good
+ There is a shuttle bus to Puerto De la Cruz 5 times a day free of charge.
+ No minibar which is plus for me but there are 2 bottles of mineral water and 2 juice for a small fee should you need it.
+ You can hire a car for a reasonable prise directly at the hotel so you don't need to order in advance.
+ Down the hill there is a bus stop and you can catch busses pretty much to everywhere. Although keep in mind taxis are cheep compared to most of europe.
+ There is a Lidl shop where you can buy some food and drinks. There is also a mall on the other side of the highway but the walk is about 15-20 min because you need to go over a roundabout.
+ Washing machines are avaiable as well.

Neutrals:
• Tennis courts are avaiable - didn't use them so i cannot comment on the quality
• The walk down the hill is not the easiest.
• Food is avarage, diversity at lunch time was lacking a bit. (something to rant about is tomatos - they are just awful although they are fresh)
• There is a safe in the room but it's is payed so I'm not that happy about it but i guess that is all over Spain for resort hotels.

- Internet is not free of charge and though it is inexpensive I would have expected that you can use it in the room not only in the lobby :(
- Cocktails are not that good in the lobby bar, the espresso too, also the tea selection could do better (if you want good coffee and cocktails I would reccomend to go to Caffe Amanusa in Puerto de La cruz - Calle Hoya 12)


If you have AI you have access to the drinks and the local alchoholic drinks which is nice and there is always food and drinks during the whole day. You can also upgrade to AI if you want.
All and all it's worth going there and I would go again :_)
Trourists are mosly of german speaking origin so the personal has sometimes trouble speking english so be aware of that.

We enjoyed it.

Had a nice break at the Hotel Las Aguilas from 6 to 13 May. Room was large and quite adequate, but was slightly tired (that said, nothing really wrong with it). Grounds of the hotel were good, location also good. There is a main road running behind the hotel, which does generate a certain amount of noise ,our room was at 90 degrees to the road and sea, the noise for us was no real problem. We were half board, and did not upgrade to the 'all inclusive' option (15 euro pp/pd I believe), as we didn't want to consume too much! If you spend a lot of time at the hotel, I think AI would be a good option to take up. There is a Lidl to the rear of the hotel (10 minute walk including a steep hill to the hotel), quite useful.....
If you are half board, drinks are obviously not included in the restaurant (even water), We bought our drinks (wine and water), and had no problems. Food was fairly good (any catering of this type becomes repetitive after several days). Puddings were lacking.....
Views from this hotel were excellent, but not really central to Puerto de la Cruz. Hotel does offer a bus service to Puerto de la Cruz, which was free I believe.
I do agree with what some other travelers have said, the room walls are quite thin, and you can hear what;s going on in nearby rooms.
All in all, noisy rooms, otherwise quite a good hotel.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms at the front (sea facing). We had a side facing room (road & sea), which had some...

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the hotel. Very spacious Room that was the size of a one bedroom apartment, the food was excellent and the whole experience was great value for money. My wife upgraded our stay to the "All inclusive" option which was well worth the 15 Euros or so each. My two year old daughter enjoyed the children's play area around the kids pool and the mini disco as such we shall have to return there soon!
