So much has been written about this complex, and indeed the pleasures of Playa de Las Americas, that I feel there is no need to go through the descriptions of these holiday units. As areviewer I have to say what was less than good, in my experience, in the sincere hope that others who follow may benefit from my findings.
Parque Santiago 111 is a large collection of apartment blocks, shops, bars, restaurants etc which cover a corner of this area. The whole Parque Santiago complexes also include supermarkets and whilst the restaurants etc have different names, they all seem to be under the Parque Santiago umbrella, and charge accordingly. Just a short stroll along the "Prom" to Los Cristianos and the prices are up to 40% cheaper for food and drinks. My wife and I had booked an apartment, and after much discussion the nice receptionist gave us a studio on the first floor of 'El Hiero', located on the outer, South-West corner of the complex, above a street named Lluvina. From our balcony we had a view over the ocean, and we enjoyed sunshine in the afternoons. Across the street we faced apartments of Santiago 1V. The roads around this corner of Las Americas are noisy with early morning delivery traffic and night-time revellers. It might be better to ask for a room facing inwards, towards the swimming pools, although we spoke to other visitors who said these latter rooms could also be noisy.
Our apartment was fine - by no means new, but well kept and well cared-for over the years. I agree that air-conditioning was lacking and in high summer it would be missed. The ceiling fan is quiet and efficient and was fine for us. We had chosen this to be a 'self-catering ' holiday and at first sight the apartment looked ideal. It had table and chairs inside, table and chairs on the balcony, and there was a new cooker, with electric rings, coffee-maker, toaster, and pans and crockery. THERE WERE NO UTENSILS ! No wooden spoon, spatula, fish slice, scissors. Just four each of knives, forks, and spoons, and four teaspoons toether with two small paring knives. How to remove food from the two new-looking frying pans would be a problem, and would of necessity meant scraping the nice non-stick surfaces with fork, or spoon. Black mark there, SP3. We had the impression that management had provided nice new pans and hoped guests would not use them.
To be fair, Santiago 3 is ideally situated in this lovely holiday area(If you like Las Americas) and has all the emenities necessary - at a price.
