“Rooms just too hot without air con”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

It's a real shame as generally the hotel is ok but it was pretty unbearable at night and it really did put a dampener on the holiday. We've stayed in Adeje loads of times at loads of apartments but all have previously had air con and we had no idea how much we'd miss it. The ceiling fan is useless and we hired a fan from reception (30 euro for 10 nights) but even that made little difference. Whenever we were in the room in the day we had the balcony door open and the front door propped wide open just to let some air through, but that obviously means a lack of privacy from the corridor. It was hotter and more humid than normal for October which is why it made even more difference.

Our apartment faced the back of the hotel and a large white wall which is the back of the row of restaurants on the sea front so we had no view and found that it could be very noisy in the early hours. There was also work going on at the back of the hotel from 8.30am so no chance of a lay in (it was too hot to sleep by that point anyway to be fair).

As others have said location is great, which being regular visitors to tenerife was the reason we booked it. Rooms, beds, pool etc is all fine which is why its such a shame they haven't fitted air con.

I would suggest to all that you book somewhere else similar that has aircon as at the Panorama there is just no rest bite from the heat. Sunset Harbour Club, Sunwing Resort and Club Atlantis are all in the same area, similar price and standard but have the all important air con so I would reccomend those from personal experience.

You have to try Couer de Filet restaurant at CC Fanabe - the best food on the island. Also Siam Park - The Water Kingdom is well worth a visit for adults and kids alike.

We were at the Panorama from Saturday 1st Oct to Saturday 8th. We had contacted the hotel and asked if we could possibly have a low room due to a leg injury. They very quickly replied and said they couldnt promise but they would see what they could do. They did! We had room 27 which was pool facing and just over a hedge from pool bar. Rooms are clean fairly basic but comfy, all you need for a base on holiday. Staff are polite and helpful, especially Lewis the life guard he's a lovely cheery helpful young man. The pool is brilliant, very clean, 8.30 onwards there is a queue for parasols and lounger pads, these are chargeable at 1.50 euros per item so obviously can mount up over the holiday. If you go to the beach you'll be minimum of 10 euro's for 2 loungers, depending on which beach you visit. Only drawback we found was temperature in room, we were dealing with temps of around 32-35 and humid. No air con only ceiling fan in livingroom area, we couldnt sleep first couple of nights due to heat and eventually pulled the 2 couches together under the fan and left the patio door open. Got brilliant sleep then. Also loads of water pressure so shower was excellent.
We were disappointed in the restaurants this visit but did visit Ryans bar which was lovely and had nice meal there, would go back again. Lots of entertainment in the bars, of varying quality but the Star Bar has billy Porter on a Sunday night, he's outrageous but very funny if your not easily offended.
We will be returning in March and will definately be booking Panorama again.

Room Tip: Cant vouch for all the rooms but ask for pool facing, some of the rooms look onto a wall. Room 27 wa...

Food very good, room clean but basic.

Good location and fairly quiet from around 23.30.

Nearly had a heart attack when asked for 28.50 (euro) for the hire of a safety deposit box for the week. I think this is very excessive and certainly should not be more than 10 (euro).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view.

Hello,

thank you for your opinion on Panorama Hotel. I asked in the hotel's reception and was told that the cost of the safety deposit box is 18€ per week and a 10€ deposit, which is returned to the client at the end of the stay. As for all the rest, we really appreciated your post and we look forward to see you again for a lovely stay.

Kind regards,

The hotel is clean and the pool area nice and quiet. The apartment we had looked out on to a wall! It was in the 30's during our stay and the lack of air conditioning was really missed. There was a ceiling fan which was of no use really. The room was basic, clean and adequate for our needs as we don't cook anyway. The pool bar was charging over 3 euros per large beer in the evening and you could go round the corner to one of the local bars and have the same for 1 euro. They also charge for the umbrellas and cushions for the sun loungers :-( I wouldn't go back but it's ideal if you want a cheap getaway. It's very central with lots of bars and restaurants and shops close by.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view otherwise you get a wall to look at!

7-14th September.

I went to this hotel based on the reviews here and I was very pleased!

The room was basic but bigger than we expected! we had a separate bedroom when we expected a small studio which was nice! we had a powerful shower, and a little kitchen area, a sofa bed, a table, tv with english channels, the only downside is that we had a ground floor apartment facing some bushes then the street which meant we couldnt leave our balcony door open and our bedroom window was on an outside corridor of the hotel so we couldn't really leave that open! The rooms have fans on the ceiling but they don't really help! The lack of aircon is the only downside to this hotel as the rooms are so so so hot at night and generally all day. The rooms have everything you need and are cleaned daily with new towels and sheets provided by friendly staff.

The hotel staff were very friendly with a 24 hour reception. The pool is spacious and clean and the life guard is an absolute legend! Guests at the hotel do that annoying thing where they put towels on the sunbeds but there was never a shortage of beds and for a euro you can hire a mat for the bed which makes them really comfy!

Walk out of the hotel and go right and walk to the roundabout and turn right again and walk down the strip and you will come to absolutely wonderful restaurants with really friendly staff at great prices! the restaurants face the sea and some do 3 course meals for 10 euros which is amazing!! beware as you are getting to these theres a really annoying guy in a cowboy hat that hounds you to come into his restaurant and follows you up the path, we got really good at avoiding him!

We found a wonderful bar called Kandi Lounge which i would reccommend young people to go to, the cocktails are 2 for 5 euros and its like 1.50 for a pint of local. its got a really nice atmosphere and friendly staff and i would really really encourage people to go! the cocktails come out all nice with sparklers and the staff bring your drinks to the table you dont even have to go to the bar!

Another good thing, there was absolutely no bugs, no seagulls hovering for food, so clean and nice everywhere!

Great holiday, loved every second of it, great hotel in a great area! Would definitely come again!!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool facing balcony so you can leave the doors open

we have stayed many times at the Panorama appartments, you can have the hotel meals in or go out and eat in the many restarunts round about, it is close to bars and all the amenities for a good holiday, if beaches are for you then there is a sand [ not black sand ] just a short walk away, and if you want the night life of las americas then only a short stroll will bring you to these, the panorama has a good sized pool area and a snack bar serveing fodd and drink all day if you dont want to move away from the pool, very relaxing place for the quieter holiday
