“2nd time not as good unfortunately”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Visited the Bouganville between 10th Sept - 20th Sept 2013 as we had stayed here for our honeymoon in oct 2011.

Place was as good as we remember however the reception staff were miserable.... first point of contact and they were downright miserable.
We checked in and straight to pool, little bit of noise due to work at the hotel but nothing to worry about. Pool still very clean, plent sunbeds and umbrellas.

We went for tea in the restaraunt and were disapointed that men still have to wear long pants, very inconvenient to have to come down in one outfit to then change into shorts to go out, especially given the slow lifts.

Food was exceptional every night and plenty choice.
The staff in the food hall work so hard and are so polite.

Bedrooms bit tired looking but nothing a lick of paint wont solve and the whole hotel is very clean, again the cleaners work very hard and always say hello.

Overall a very good holiday but a lot more older people 55-75 who constantly twisted about the noise from the builders

Still a good hotel but first impressions mean a lot and the reception staff could do with some training

Room Tip: Lower the better, slow lifts

It's is our 2nd visit to the Bouganville , after reading the recent reviews we were a bit concerned about our choice of hotel. Nothing to worry about, we checked into reception , and were given a room on the 5th floor with a side sea view, I asked if we could have a higher floor as we had read the reviews the receptionist very kindly said we could move in 2 days as the hotel was full. The room we have is excellent, the staff very friendly and courteous as usual. The food in the main Restaurant is good. We had a meal last night In their new restaurant, the service and food were wonderful, we cannot fault the hotel in any way. Luckily enough for us we are here for another 10 wonderful days, and don't expect or foresee and problems. A very big thank you to the management and staff for a wonderful stay and holiday.

my wife and I viewed this hotel some 5 years ago or so while we were staying at another iberostar hotel nearby, the dalias. we have stayed at three iberostar hotels and loved the brand. we are not big money earners and it took us some three years to save up to go to this hotel for our 30th wedding anniversary which cost us about £1500.00 for our stay, we sourced our own flights. the staff are typical iberostar and cant do enough for you. we have been following trip advisor postings since april and were concerned about the reports of the building work that are being carried out and one of the responses was that the work would be finished by june, just a shame they didn't say which year. one report said that the rooms were being updated from the top down and that the builders are down to the sixth floor, they must have missed the eighth floor because our room was very tired and in need of redecoration, the bathroom in particular. we booked a four star hotel and everything was ok for a four star award but not the room which could only manage a low 3 star, in fact a 2 star in Ibiza, the mar amantis beat this room hands down. when we checked into this hotel we had booked a standard double room but we was told that we had only paid for a basic room and that out of the kindness of his heart the receptionist had upgraded us to a better room, I hate to think what our original room was like. the complaints about the lifts in trip advisor we fully uphold, and when stepping out of the lifts on the eighth floor you are greeted by a dark dismal foyer area. in all it was not up to iberostar standards and we are disappointed with what our £1500.00 had been spent on and to be told in reception in front of other guest that we had not spent enough money to get a better room was a let down, and I am not talking about a penthouse suite for our money I of course would not expect that, but a better room than 835 for our hard earned money was expected. the staff in the restaurant and by the pool including the animation teams were second to none, well done to them. the building work around the pool area was noisy with electric hammers and concrete drilling going on and of course not all facilities are open while this work goes on, but we were not told of this work so that we could have made other arrangements at another hotel, why tell us the truth when taking our money that you have ongoing work being carried out, or do I need to spend more money for this information, after all I only spent £1500.00.

Room Tip: check out your room before unpacking, our room not up to the iberostar standard

Our hotel room was one of the refurbished rooms on the 10th floor and with a great view, the pool area was nice and clean with plenty of sunbeds and the pool bar staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem to them. Dining wasn't a great experience more so for dinner at night I found the food quite repetitive as having stayed at Iberostar Albufera Playa Alcudia they had themed nights which was so much better and more variety. The downside is the fact that men had to wear long trousers every night for dinner while women could basically wear the shortest shorts possible. I'm on my holidays so would have liked to have had an option on what I can wear. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone under 55 either as the entertainment is catered for folk of an older age group. For the money you pay I won't be back to this hotel

My wife and I have just returned from staying at the Bouganville for the 4th. time, the only thing wrong on this visit was the work being carried out near the main pool. My only complaint was that the reception staff need to be a lot more friendly and smile a lot more? We were on this visit given a room on the 9th. floor which as been upgraded and was really clean and smart with Pacocks on our bedroom door, it was cleaned daily by cleaners who always said hola when they saw us.In the restaurant the staff there were pleasant also, the one we missed was a waiter named Domingo who we found out was on holiday himself, he was like a little snippet in clearing tables and looked after us whilst we were there, we missed him this time, but hope to see him in February when we go back.This will be our 6th visit here and have always had a great holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for a side pool sea view.

Overall we liked this hotel,
The good things, =
The pool area is really nice and we never had a problem getting a sun bed, the pool was also warm enough to go in.(maybe slightly heated?) The staff at the pool bar very pleasant and helpful.
There was lots of things going off around the pool, table tennis, pool competition's etc., lots of people were getting involved.
The location is good and the views nice.
There's a balcony in the dining hall, it was lovely to sit out there, that was special.
The rooms were a little dated but clean and comfortable, the maids were very good.
The bad=
The food was no where near as good as sister hotel Las Dallias, we were expecting the same sort of standard and it isn't, after saying that it isn't bad, there's a lot of variety and they are trying to cater for everyone.
The dinning area staff don't seem so happy and were not keen to clear tables or deliver drinks.
There was some building work in progress near the pool, we were not informed about this before we arrived.

This hotel has huge potential and when the refurb has been fully completed im sure it will be wonderful, but they will need to improve the standard of food and also some of the staff.

PLEASE NOTE: For reasons beyond our control, the main pool will be closed until 15th May 2017. The hotel has another pool which will remain open. We apologise for the inconvenience. The IBEROSTAR Bouganville Playa 4 star family and spa hotel in Tenerife is like a good wine, getting better over the years so you can experience something new during each stay.

Discover more reasons why you will also want to come back to one of the best hotels in south Tenerife. Endless rest. Whether you come as a couple or with your family, in this hotel in Tenerife you’ll have rooms with comfortable bedrooms and a balcony where you’ll feel the breeze off the Atlantic or breathe in the fresh mountain air. While your children make lifelong friends in our kids’ club. And best of all, at the IBEROSTAR Bouganville Playa you can get to Playa del Bobo in the time it takes to finish a drink from the minibar. Star Prestige. Would you like to enjoy a completely exclusive experience? Counting the bubbles in the whirlpool bath or stretching out on the Balinese beds after trying the sensations shower are just a few of the experiences you can enjoy in the Star Prestige adults-only rooms at your hotel in Tenerife. A delicious stay. You can’t leave the islands without trying the delicious Canary Island cuisine or indulging in the flavours from around the world in our restaurants. Our buffet will leave you lost for words! And if you want to unwind, don’t miss the classic honey rum or a drink of your choice in any of the bars of your hotel in Costa Adeje. Imbibe the sea. The calm seas at Playa del Bobo are perfect for little ones to go for a swim, while lying on the sand is the best way to take advantage of the average temperature of 22ºC found in the Canaries. And if you prefer to stay in the hotel, you can gaze at the Atlantic Ocean while swimming in the large main pool. Fun in the water. The local inhabitants love the beach and fruit so much that, besides the home-grown bananas, there are inflatable versions pulled around by speed boats! Feel like you’re on a roller coaster on the sea when you go banana boating. And there are many more water sports: surfing, windsurfing, sailing, jet-ski, catamaran trips, fishing trips, etc. And on dry land, the youngsters dress up as their favourite characters or pretend to be lovable pirates searching for treasure in the Miniclub. And the grown-ups enjoy activities such as golf, to fitness or archery. Fancy a romantic dinner? Don’t worry; you can because there’s also an evening babysitting service so couples can have some intimacy. Spectacular pools, in terms of both how big they are and what happens around them. At midday, you can’t miss the weekly show cooking of paella or Canary Island recipes performed outdoors by the head chef. And for the rest of the day, choose the sun lounger you like most and stay refreshed with a sorbet or ice cream. ... more   less
