“Family holiday”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Had a great time room very spacious and very clean great facilities if u staying self catering. Need air conditioning in rooms as very hot. Think next time wouldn't take all inclusive package, the food was ok but drinks served in small plastic glass. Great place for kids they enjoyed it very friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: situated on main road so can be very noisy with the traffic as you have to open windows when so hot...

Apartments very modern and nice and good size balcony. Only one minus is no air condition in rooms but if you open 2 windows at night is ok.Food ok every day you can find something to eat. Drinks ok. Bar is open till 24:00 but all inc is only till 23:00.Rooms cleaning 5 times per week.Most staff very friendly and helpful especially Maria-Mar very very friendly and nice person. Thank you for a nice holiday.

2 swimming pools but second one is more quiet and you can find easy sunbed:)

Just got back from Costa Adeje, we stayed for a week on an All Inclusive basis. We had our 16yr old son and our 8yr old son with us. We were put in block 1 and the apartment was one of the more updated I think. It was very clean and had fridge,microwave,cooker,toaster and tv etc so if you were on a self catering holiday you had all the essentials. The cleaners came almost every day with clean towels and made the beds. The complex itself was clean, yes there were odd plastic cups scattered round the pool some days but they were often picked up. Didn't need air con as we left the bedroom window open and had a breeze blowing through.
I cannot comment on the entertainment round the pool as we used pool 1 and daytime entertainment was around pool 2. Also cannot comment on the night entertainment as we as a family like to go out and about around the town during the evening.
Reading the comments on here about the food I was slightly put off, but to be fair it was generally ok..... However if we had stayed longer than a week then it would be very repetitive I think! Also please be aware when the chefs are cooking the food for you please make sure it is cooked as a couple of times our 8yr old went for chicken and thankfully I always check chicken, this was raw still inside, I told the waitress who just took it away and didn't apologise or anything!
There is a good choice of food for children but like I have mentioned, it's very repetitive!
The staff were all very nice and Vasille behind the bar works hard and was lovely.
We went to the market which was good for a bargain, especially if like me you like to barter for a good handbag!
We visited Siam Park for a day which our boys' enjoyed too, they check bags so no picnic food and there was a free bus but from outside another hotel.
So all in all we had a lovely relaxing time in a lovely hotel,kids loved the pool and for once we didn't have to get up early for a sun-bed! They don't open the gate until about 9.30 and there were always spare ones around.
Hope this review helps :-)
PS don't leave your plate unattended at the table as the waiters and waitresses pick them up very fast, we timed it once and my husband put his fork down when he had finished and it was picked up within 5 seconds and taken away!

We stayed at the Playa Olid for a week self catering with our one year old son. I have to say there`s much to commend the place for such a trip. They supplied a travel cot (though no high chair was available for the rooms, so bring your own "high chair booster seat" to convert one of the chairs into a high chair) and better still every flat has a hallway between the lounge/bathroom/bedroom which the cot fits into. Thus, you can put your little one to bed whilst you stay in the lounge, then later, when they`re asleep you can creep through into the bedroom without waking them ! RESULT ! But creep back into the bathroom (past the cot) quietly ! Other child friendly features include a balcony with a child proof fence and a child`s pool.Plus all the locals love kids.
Other positives, there`s a supermarket near by (walking distance over the dual carriageway), the beach is about a 15 to 20 minute walk, there are a few decent restaurants not far away, the flats are kept clean, the kitchen has a full size fridge and a toaster and the staff are all helpful.
One thing I found great was there are two pools (plus the kiddies paddler) and one isn`t heated, which was fabulous for me because it was usually virtually empty so I could do some serious fitness swimming : RESULT 2 ! !
The only thing we couldn`t really cope with, and the main reason we only give it 4 stars, is that the cooker consists of only two rings, no oven or grill. How can you self cater with that ! Answer ? Only with difficulty ! There`s no air con but we went in Jan/Feb when that didn`t really matter. And take a shaver adapter because the bathrooms don`t have any two pin shaver outlets....

Visited playa olid (5th aug-15th aug went on holiday with my mom and 9yr daughter, we stayed in 1210 superior room, the room was very clean & spacious, and the cleaners did a good job, our room was on the main road and could be very noisy at times ( i recomend if ur a light sleeper this is not for u) the room had no aircom which is a first 4 me, it was so hot we had 2 keep the patio door open ( you can rent a fan €15euros) for the week, the food wasnt 2 bad the lamb was gorgeous! It did become a bit bland on some days but not all! I would give the food 8 out of 10. Most of the staff were very friendly, you have 2 queue 2 get a sun bed in pool 1 & pool2 the gates r open between 9.30-10.am,this is 2 stop people gettin up early 2 save the sunbeds. The entertainment was quite good, i was disapointed there wasnt a late nite disco, it was karoke every night, overall i did enjoy it but have better holidays, but 4 a 3 star it was ok

My first thoughts were O.M.G this won't be good. A three star. Well I was wrong it was the most enjoyable holiday I have ever had. And that means something. The food was lovely and the staff were all caring. I love the animation team. They were so nice and funny. The pools were good sizes and the entertainment was great. I would go back for another holiday. It was in a perfect location to go on a nice walk to the beach and it is near the Siam park bus stop. I would really recommend this to anyone. Happy holidays!!!

If this had the option of giving it 3 & a half then I would. We stayed as a family in a nice apartment overlooking the pool (which is quite small), It's a shame however that our room was also overlooking the main high street with very busy traffic.

As there is no air-con then we had to have the window open slightly in our bedroom (we also had a 13 month old with us) which made it even more noisy, but we lived with it. Room was spacious as was the living quarters.

We never ate in the resort as we like to go out to dine or have lunch so I can not comment on the food or service.

The reception staff were always polite and friendly. A special mention though to the housekeepers, they where great, professional, quick and so friendly.

Look at the end of the day it's OK, just a shame (and im no snob) looking around the pool at the majority of people it does attract then you may not wish to stay here, then again im sure there are many places like it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the main road.
