“Beautiful stay over Christmas & New Years”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Stayed here 24-31 of December. It was Lovely. Rooms are clean and very nice. Excellent bathroom. Staff is lovely. Breakfast perfect. One big plus is the roof terrace with the pool. That really was a retreat travelling to Tenerife in December. Don't miss the hotel bar. Lovely space and delicious small dishes.

I arrived Saturday for 4 nights and was on half board
The restaurant is close on the weekend and they send you to the bar , it can be noisy on weekend...
They have the same menu and only a choice over 2 entrees and 2 main so hopefully you like both of the selection otherwise you will be served the same food on Saturday night and Sunday night
Bier is not included in the half board only wine or mineral water
Food is extremely average and I will not recommend to eat at the hotel specially since the city centre is only a few minutes walking distance

Stayed here a week for the Christmas in room 214, a standard room with basic amenities. Our room had a small frig, desk, good lighting, a safe (Need help from the front desk with the setting of the lock), a few hangars, bathroom amenities(with a small bit of soap for hand washing), heavy blanket in the closet in case it gets too cold, and a flat screen TV on the desk….however for Eng.channel just the BBC World News, or if there’s more choice would have been good. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable and floors were hardwood. The breakfast buffet has everything you could want to eat. Though not all staff speak English they are polite and very helpful. Swimming pool on the 5th fl, looks OK but we didn't try this time. The location is excellent....just a short walk to the nice park, the city centre and a bus (nr921) stop right in front of the hotel. By bus921 it takes just few minutes to the bus terminal, where we can take the buses to the North shore and the South part as well as the Airport South. If you don’t rent a car, then take the collective transport, but don’t forget to buy a Bono travel Card(the card is not personal. One card can be used by several persons since the cost is printed on the card each time)…..it’s so convenient with that in hand! For eg. We went to the North shore several times….the pyramid i Güimar, La Laguna and don’t miss the exciting bus ride on the mountain ride to Taganana(not for those who are fear of heights) We got very gd info at the tourist Info Centre.
Not so good: noise interference from outside the room or adjacent room noise for eg. in the early morning. Perhaps improvement needs for the free wifi, too. It is available in the hotel but perhaps for certain amount of time, you are forced to log in over and over.
Overall it’s a good hotel and we had a nice stay.

Stayed here for one night
. Hotel contemporary decor, check in ok except they wanted passports and we are residents in the south so don't carry our passports they finally accepted our NIE.
Room was adequate shower very good and nice quality toilet paper!!
We only had one set of towels for two, but a call to housekeeping they brought extra quickly.
Floors were wood throughout so very noisy when walking on corridors.
Breakfast to look at was very nice, to eat and drink was bad. The hot food was cold, the juices were watered down and horrible. The sliced bread was only fit for toasting as it had gone hard with being exposed.the cheese looked watery and slimy I didn't even try it.
Our friends had a triple room which was so tiny you couldn't walk round beds.
The hotel is as I have put completely average wouldn't stay again but only because of breakfast, it's the worst I've had anywhere I stayed before.

stayed for one night in Santa Cruz with my son after a regatta. Quiet room, free parking, free internet, great breakfast. Reception staff helped when my car broke down. Cant complain really. Not a tourist hotel but for me that was a plus

Room Tip: 610 was ok - at the top and quiet

Stayed here back in Dec 2012 for one night before joining a cruise ship. From the outside this hotel is on the main street and doesn't seem like the nicest and looks actually quite small. However one i entered i was pleasantly surprised. Very modern, clean and the staff are friendly. I arrived at about 10.30pm and was still able to have a three course dinner which was lovely. The restaurant again was modern and "trendy" with people stopping by from outside to have a drink in the bar where there are sofas for big groups of people. My room was also very nice with everything you needed. Bed was also very comfortable. The view of the street is not amazing but for my stay it was not bothered about this. Breakfast in the morning was buffet style with all the continental options laid out and if you wanted to order hot food the wait would take this from you.

Overall a lovely stay from a hotel that is on a busy street. Would recommend.
