“A completely accurate review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

When we arrived check in was quick, the front desk always has atleast 2 people there, so you are never waiting long. Very pleasant and happy to help.
Our room was very nice, the bedroom is in a seperate room to your living space making the rooms very big. As a female i was slightly disappointed there was no bath but the shower was powerful enough, theres no door on the shower so the floor does get very wet but drys quickly in the heat.
Me and my partner are not fussy eaters but we really struggled on the all inclusive basis. 80% are fish dishes. If you speak to every british person they will tell you. Everyone ended up going to the resturant around the corner its cheap enough! The snack bar in the afternoon serves good food like chips and burgers, these started at 11am all day which was always full. Drinks were great and they didnt scrimp on the alcohol.
There is no entertainment during the week, there are singers thursday, friday, saturday which were quite good but there are loads of people to speak to so we werent bothered
The staff are not friendly, they dont say hello and dont want to speak. If your english they dont even look at you. This didnt bother us because it is a 90% british hotel and everyone is friendly and will speak for ours as a couple we were never on our own and we have made friends for life.
Would i go back again? Yes i would, the location, the cleanliness, the people staying there makes everything worthwhile, BUT i would go half board. The breakfast is fantastic we could fault it but the evening meal was sometimes a let down and we struggled to eat.
Dont let really negative reviews put you off because its not all bad. My is accurate as i come home yesterday. We loved it!

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Tamaimo and have to say it was a pleasant experience. Food was good, apart from Sundays when we couldn't find anything we liked apart from the salad bar (and we are not fussy eaters). The rooms are good and clean, linen and towels changed regularly. Air con included, as is a ceiling fan which is ample. The staff are fabulous, work so hard and very long hours. I have to say, we were disappointed in the Italian restaurant, thought there would have been much more choice.
The main problem we had was with the amount of children, as we are six adults we found it very noisy and the children out of control. There were teenagers throwing the little tables from round the pool into the pool in the evenings, and a couple of times kids rang our door bell and ran away. There are also a lot of children jumping into the pool where adults are swimming and just missing their heads. This of course is not the hotels fault.
There are not a lot of beds or parasols, especially as many guests are all inclusive; the hotel is not big enough for this option as many people stay by the pool. You do need to be down at 7am if you want sunbeds and parasols!
The entertainment during the day is there, but it could be improved greatly. You don't know what games are taking place, at what time or where; and on the off chance that you do join in, they are completely taken over by headstrong teenage boys.
On the plus side, the trips to Siam Park, Loro Parque and Mount Teide are well worth it. Make sure you get the fast pass at Siam Park, otherwise you won't get round all the rides as the queues are horrific! The rides are well worth the extra money.
Overall, a good holiday but I don't think we will be visiting again. Good hotel, just needs a few tweaks!

Room Tip: 4th floor, away from the lifts.

Went with my boyfriend for a week in the middle of August. We have no children and just wanted a break in the sun. For £550 each we got a week's stay with flights in this hotel. Ignore all reviews that are negative - we had a fantastic time. Plenty of food choices and always replenished regularly so you know it is fresh. Balcony and apartment clean and towels and bedding fresh every day. If you don't like children and want a 5* hotel then don't pay less than £600 each in the school holidays. Would highly recommend in all areas.

Stayed here for 1 week all inclusive. Wasn't sure what to expect after reading reviews, but can honestly say I was worrying about nothing. It's a 3* hotel, you pay for 3* and you get 3*. Food was great, plenty of choice. Choice of drinks was great, people moaned it was in small plastic cups.....they can't exactly give you a pint in a glass when you are sat by a swimming pool with children running about?! I don't know what some people expect? If you want 5* then pay for it. It's in a lovely quiet area, with a nice couple of bars including Route 66 playing live music every night. My only criticism is the entertainment in the evenings could be better, apart from that it was a great week and would stay again ☺

After not having a holiday abroad for 2 ½ years we booked 7 nights all inclusive after reading the reviews and ignoring the bad ones as suggested by other reviews first impressions was the hotel looked clean and tidy , the room was well equipped and again very clean. We arrived around 10 pm the first night and the following morning went to book in to the onsite restaurant which was fully booked for the duration of our stay so we couldn’t get in, but got talking to people who had got in twice. Te problem in my opinion is they take paying guests from the self catering section over all inclusive guests

We went down to breakfast on the first day and were quite surprised bacon, sausage 3 types of eggs, pastries croissants, cereals and fruit. unfortunately the food went downhill from there we are not fussy eaters, but with selections like goat , rabbit portions in some sort of liquid rice with lumps of fish in battered dog fish we found it hard to find something to select .
As it is self service a lot of the food has been slopped around and doesn’t look that appealing anyway.
There is plenty of salad, bread and some cheese or salami type meat to eat but you can only eat so much salad. We ended eating out 4 out of 7 nights in local bars very cheap around 40 Euros for 4 and very good food would consider self catering next time
The sun bed situation is crazy you need to get down for around 7am to get a parasol and queue for the beds to be unchained then lift them down and carry into position and lay them out yourself great if you have a dodgy back like me. There are no way enough beds or chairs as people end up lying on the grass which is watered every morning so your towels get filthy

The pool area is hosed down every morning but any bits of food from the day before go down the drains and you quite often get a nasty drain smell around the pool
The two drink policy is ridiculous as we are a family of 4 and two of us had to go up at a time and the queues are sometimes quite big
The entertainment not that good for elder children mine are 16 and 14 and again not enough chairs and tables to sit and watch
I heard some guests had complained about the food and there rep had transferred there booking to self catering and they could clamed back the cost of the all inclusive when they got back. the food here has really put me off going all inclusive again we could have got the same holiday self catering for £ 1300 cheaper and judging by the cost of local food would have still saved a few hundred pounds if we have eat out every day
make up your own mind if its for you

We booked at the last minute, two days before, and weren't sure what to expect! We had a few issues to begin with regarding the cleanliness of one of our rooms, the staff were accomodating and rectified the situation immediately! The food was great and we enjoyed our night in the onsite Italian restaurant :-) We ate out twice in one of the local restaurants which was very reasonably priced 20 Euro a head for a 3 course meal with drinks and a bottle of bubbly, we had a 21st to celebrate!

We did have an issue with another guest and it was dealt with swiftly and the staff were very supportive.

As we have older children, 15, 17, 21 and 23 year old girls we were located ideally for them to do the things they wanted to do...........thankfully no boys were involved phew!

Overall we had a great holiday and this was aided by the staff being proactive and ensuring that our stay was as stress free as possible!

P.s we only bothered to get up for sunbeds on our last day as i was too busy watching the poolside politics ( better than Corrie any day of the week) from 07.00 to 08.35!

Room Tip: If want an early night or a lie in do not get a poolside room as the entertainment is a bit loud but...

I returned yesterday after a 2 weeks stay. I am disapointed for numerous reasons....I never queued for drinks, I never saw a cockroach, I was always treated well by polite, hardworking staff.

I was also very disapointed that the food was lovely, my towels and bedding were cleaned regularly and the apartment had air conditioning. Never got to see all the pigeons that everyone complained about, oh well can't have it all, maybe I will have to go to London for that.

Had a great stay, kids loved the pool, temperature hit 38, so so Hot. (was great) Carlo, Thompson rep was lovely, as were the Hotel staff. My god they work their butts off.

Always had a sun lounger and parasol, if I went down early. Some Holiday makers took a bed even if they went out for the Day, bit selfish but not the Hotels fault and certainly not a problem.

Don't think the Chef, kitchen and dining staff get as much credit as they deserve. Food was great, always cooked well and a varied selection to suit all. Milk ice lollies and a selection of ice creams available all Day (which is a first for any Hotel I have stayed at.)

Apartment was clean, any small issues we had with air conditioning was fixed the same Day. Spot on for the price. Thank you to the staff and the wonderful people we met, that made our stay so enjoyable! Remember this is a 3* Hotel and you are getting what you have paid for. We stayed in room 355, good condition. Over looked the quiet pool and disco, was ideal for us.

Main pool too busy for us so we remained at the quiet one. Loro parque and Siam, a good Day out. Activities available, water polo, kids club, kids Disco, Bingo Bongo. Not all activities suited us but my kids were happy to play in the pool. 2 weeks a little too long for the kids as they got bored. However I was happy lazing by the pool in the glorious hot basking weather! Too hot to go roaming anyway lol. If you are off on your Hol..enjoy and relax.
