“Expensive for what you get”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Beware if you are thinking of becoming a member, there is little or no control over the maintenance fees they charge here, I have seen mine go up to over £700 over the last few years, and there is nothing you can do about it, the managment tream say that this is because of the weak euro and the excessive spanish inflation, and dont expect any any flexibility from the admin staff, who will not beleive what you tell them,

Meals and drinks are not cheap and can be found cheaper at the nearby village.

The resort is quite noisy the housekeepers arrive early morning, so you can hear them wondering around pushing trollies and talking to each other outside your rooms if you have your windows open, which you have to in the standard apartments as there is no air con available.

The resort is on the airport flight path, which isn’t a problem during the day, but they still fly at 2 am in the morning and as early as 7.30 usually every three minutes or so, so if you have your windows open you cant miss them.

The resort is clean but is alittle tired there are tiles missing, paint flaing, and there were broken tiles on the floor of the pool which were quite sharp, some of the room facilities are well used i.e. the cooker and a lot of the sun loungers around the swimming pool where broken. The standard apartments bathroom and kitchen where very tired grout and sealant missing in the bathroom

you have to pay an additional 30 euros in the standard apartment and 40 euros for the elite one to cover cleaning and utilities. Standard apartments are only cleaned once a week and the elite ones are cleaned every other day.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment over the pool if you want to sunbathe on your balcony, Rooms facing the Golf co...

We have been to Fairways about 8 or 9 times in the last ten years. We always book our apartment privately or through Amarilla Car Hire. We have rented seven in all from one bedroomed to three bedroomed depending on who comes with us. They have always been clean and have everything that you need. From freezers to dishwashers to air-conditioning. The write ups tell you what is in the apartments so you choose what suits you. We usually have one overlooking the lovely gardens/waterfall or the pool and have never had a problem with noise. If you want total peace and quiet choose one overlooking the golf course but they don't get the sun all day like the others. Again .... you take the choice.

The pool bar is great for breakfasts and snacks and their muffins are to die for! Staff are really friendly ... especially Donna who is always smiling and chatty. They are also a wealth of knowledge if you need to know anything about nearby attractions etc. Palms do a good meal in the evenings if you don't want to walk too far. Plenty of other restaurants and bars close by.

We hire a car from Steve and Sue in the Car Hire place on site and they are brilliant. They pick you up from the airport and drop you off so you save about 40 euros before you've lifted a finger. We have used them about seven times after making the mistake of hiring at the airport the first time. They also book excursions and nights out etc at very competitive prices.

All in all, fairways is a good place to stay if you want to relax in the sunshine (which most of the time it is)

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the golf course can be a bit shady on the balcony terrace. Overlooking the pool is...

We had a fantastic week at Fairways Club.The weather was beautiful every day mid 70's.The pool area was large and loads of sun beds.Also good price bar by pool with 1 Euro drinks 2pm til 4pm.and they do breakfast,lunch and a great Sunday carvery.
Also across the pool The Palm restaurant/bar has entertainment most nights.
The apartment had all you need.Microwave,kettle,toaster,oven and fridge.Units a bit tired and in bathroom but its all you need and maid came twice during our week to change towels and clean.Lovely balcony with furniture.On plus side,the TV picks up UK channels so if you fancy a quite night in you can watch your fave progs and you can get WiFi around the pool area and i managed to get get it,JUST on our balcony Litle things like this make it a great break for me.Just be aware this is a TIMESHARE RESORT so they will be looking to get you to buy in.Visit Wildgeese Irish bar for good food,footie and entertainment and just over the road Volare bar with great acts every night.15 min walk form Fairway Club.San Blas a 30 min walk looks great for a night out but we only found it on the last day on a walk so would go for dinner probably in a cab next time because we will go back.Supermarket just across the road for all you need.

  • Liked — Pool area and bar /resturant,WiFi.English TV
  • Disliked — Just outside resort looks a bit desolate.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom Elite Apartment overlooking the pool from 16th -23rd December 2011, room was fully equipped with washer dryer and dishwasher and a maid service twice during our stay. Main bedroom had an ensuite and there was also another bathroom with shower. Plenty of room for 5 of us. The rooms were spotlessly clean as was the resort. There were 3 eating places on the resort The Palms which was ok but a little overpriced for the food served. The Premier Bar and the 9th Hole both offering excellent value for money and good pub grub. It is a little out of the way if you don't have a car but 10 minute walk not from the livelier Golf de Sur resorts where there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. All in all a great place for a quite family holiday although pool was a little cold despite being heated. No complaints and would go again. Also were not hassled by time share sales either we said at welcome meeting were not interested and were left to enjoy our holiday.

Room Tip: Elite Apartments are excellent

As a permanent renter on this resort, after reading some if the latest reviews would like to re assure visitors that Fairways is having a complete refurb of its apartments and pool area...expected to be finished 16th December 2011 well in time for Christmas

Well worth a visit...a 5 crown resort

Room Tip: Elite apartments are by far the best inc air con for those hot summer nights

Spent half term week there recently in a 2 bedroomed apartment on the 2nd floor. The apartment and the resort in general were well kept & well equipped. The pool area was popular with many guests spending most of their time there. We used the accommodation as a base to go walking around the local area & went further afield using the local buses. This area of Tenerife is very British - you can even watch X Factor in the local bars - this was quite nice really..Quite a few teenagers around as this was half term - & we had two with us - so no complaints there either.
Don't go expecting to eat out cheaply as this is not the case- self-catering isn't cheap either- expect prices similar to the UK or even more expensive.
