We were 2 over 60's couples and not sure about the holiday after some bad reviews so were quite pleased. We booked with booking.com not RCI and had a spacious apartment on the first floor although bedroom 2 was a bit sparse. The balcony was big, but we only had sun from 14.30 to 16.30 whereas the balconies further away from the main road had sun a lot longer.
The pool area was good and usually quiet and the bar open in the afternoon.
Although our linen/towels were not changed, it is a self contained apartment with a washer so a tip would be to bring washing tablets and do your own. There is an excellent supermarket by the back gate, reasonable prices and many offeratas. We knew it was hilly down to both Los Gigantes & Santiago and a pull back up the hill after your meal. The nicest restaurant was the Austrian one next to the large hotel towards Santiago, however a little gem is the restaurant a few yards up the hill at the back of the complex.
All the buses stop outside the hotel so there is no need to walk down the hill to the terminus and there are frequent buses to Los Christianos.
