This 4 star hotel may have been built in 2001 but it still looks brand new. From the outside, the complex looks very modern, in contrast with the usual ungainliness of other hotels in the area. Inside though, the lobby is a completely different story: ultra contemporary red armchairs, a large wrought-iron globe in the centre of the room, and a series of cubic sculptures delineating the lounge area. All of this results in a modern, warm feel thanks in addition to the parquet flooring, abundant wood, and light filtering in through the large glass panels. We were certainly pleasantly surprised. Even the corridors are nice and wide with plenty of natural light coming in through the large picture windows.
Outside you'll find an asymmetrical swimming pool where the majority of the water-based activities take place (it's also worth bearing in mind that the music is a tad loud here). The surroundings are perfectly pleasant and there's even a whirlpool bath; it's just a shame the deckchairs are so poorly arranged, not only because of the lack of privacy but because you're also at risk of some serious sunburn as there aren't many parasols about either. Just next to the swimming pool there's a large play area, before the second, heated swimming pool. There is also a mini-golf course and, a little further along, some sports courts and a shooting range.
This is also where you'll find the famous thalassotherapy centre which is renowned among Canarians, some of whom come here for the quality of the treatments offered (therapists use products from the La Sultane de Saba range and it's easy to see why!). You'll certainly find a wide range of treatments on offer here, including plantar reflexology, ayurvedic facial treatments, and even an anti-stress massage with Chinese balls, along with the usual facilities including hydromassage jets, a sauna, a hammam, and a solarium, all located in a lovely glass cage.
