Amy Adejokun Section editor

While this is certainly not the best hotel in Tenerife, it is a good mid-range family hotel with a nice atmosphere reigning over the complex. It has decent rooms, the capacity to keep the kids entertained, above average quality food and pleasant public spaces, especially round the pools. This, together with its friendly staff, makes it a no-brainer for a relaxed family holiday without breaking the bank.

    Location 7.0 /10

    Best is in the southern resort of Playa de las Americas, not too far away from the shops, bars and restaurants of the commercial centre. The nearest beach, Playa de las Vistas, is around 300m away. The southern airport is 10 miles away, while the northern is 60miles. The hotel does have limited parking space, which is free of charge.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel comprises 365 rooms, some of which are large junior suites or family rooms which can accommodate up to six people (four adults and two children). Standard rooms, which are reasonably spacious, feature basic solid dark wood furniture and bright upholstery with standard amenities such as telephone, safe (10? deposit, 2? per day thereafter), fridge, air conditioning and a regular television. The balconies are a little on the small side and are not especially private as you are able to see your neighbours. The relatively modern bathrooms have pretty tiling and a good selection of toiletries as well as a bathtub with shower, bidet and hairdryer. Rooms either have an interior view of the mountains and other resorts, or of Costa Adeje and a little sea. None of the rooms in the hotel are smoking.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The hotel's architecture won't win any design awards, but its lobby is nonetheless welcoming and it is not too complicated to find your way around the hotel or to access your room, a fault of quite a number of other hotels. One good thing about this hotel is that it has bounds of space; just next to the reception area is acres of comfortable seating space with large televisions for sporting events and the like. Here you'll also find coin-operated computers but also complimentary wifi for those who have brought their laptops. This fondness of space is extended out into the supervised pool area where the sufficient number of sun beds is spaced generously around the clean, calm swimming pools, one of which is just for kids. The bridge which runs over one of the pools to the kids club and the waterfall at the very back are nice features which add to the agreable ambiance. The aforementioned area for the little ones is open air although it does have a roof. Here the English-speaking animators play a variety of games with the children, no matter how many there are, and there is no need for parents to supervise; they can be getting on with another range of activities with some of the other animators such as shooting, water aerobics, bowls and even a paella-making demonstration. In terms of sporting facilities, the hotel offers a squash court, ping pong, mini golf and a billiard room. There is a small outdoor gym at present, but this will soon be extended to have a spa (at present, there is only a Turkish bath and sauna). At night there is a professional show put on for guests and with 14 different spectacles, you won't see the same one twice. In winter these shows are held indoors just after the mini disco. Other amenities at the hotel include a hairdresser and a shop selling supplies and souvenirs.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel's principal restaurant is a pretty standard, soulless dining room like in most of the hotels here, however the food is actually very good. There is plenty of choice, especially at dinner, and the staff is efficient and polite. The menu changes on a 14 day cycle, which means that you will never face having to choose from amongst the same options twice during your stay. Two nights per week there is a themed dinner, either Mexican or Canarian, with musical accompaniment, and in the summer months a barbeque takes place outside. The hotel also has several bars, one of which is located at the pool and which serves snacks such as burgers, sandwiches and ice creams during pool opening hours. Indoors, just off the lobby, is the piano bar, featuring a bamboo bar and furniture and is where four nights a week a pianist tinkles away on the ivories. During the winter months the bar in the disco room is open during the entertainment show.

    To know

    You might think that the hotel lacks some of the amenities of other hotels in the area, however things are about to change with a new games room and arcade planned for the near future, as well as plans for a spa to be opened next to the fitness room. Unlike many hotels, there is no deposit for towels or fridges (although there is one for the room's safe).

      If you're searching for a mid-range hotel with a complete range of facilities for all the family, look no further than the Gala. Ok, it's not right on top of the beach, but aside from that you can't take anything away from this hotel: spacious, comfortable rooms, good sport and wellness facilities, a great infrastructure for kids, decent food and all this right in the centre of the tourist zone of Playa de las Americas. What's more it has something that no hotel can build or buy - a fun, lively atmosphere. We would recommend this for couples, groups of friends and families who want a good value all-round hotel experience.

      Villa Cortes is an exceptional place in the Canary Islands: its refined cuisine, remarkable architecture, service quality and comfortable rooms is to the taste of the most demanding customers, who will have the impression of lodging in a luxury Mexican hacienda. Surely one of our favourite destinations, which guarantees a satisfying and peaceful stay, for honeymoon for example.

      • Location 7.0

      A family hotel in the heart of one of the south's resorts, La Siesta is a run-of-the-mill hotel with decent but not exceptional facilities which represents a relatively good value place to stay for an all inclusive break. Slightly dated, it has large, comfortable rooms, a full programme for kids and even a wellness centre. However if you are looking for high quality service and a top notch infrastructure you may want to look elsewhere.

      • Value for money 6.97
      • Location 7.0

      Las Palmeras is a middle-of-the-range family hotel which will no doubt appeal to those looking for good value from their holiday. It has to be said that despite some newly renovated rooms and features such as the Italian restaurant, it remains a little characterless and impersonal given its size (over 500 rooms). We feel that it is missing that extra something that would mark it out from its rivals although it rests a reasonable option which is unlikely to disappoint (nor overwhelm for that matter). If you want to go for an H10, there are better.

      Villa Togaro is a little holiday complex located on the slopes of Playa de las Americas. It consists of small bungalows with guest apartments measuring around 50mē. The complex is not too big, and the gardens and external infrastructures are well maintained. A welcoming place, it offers a good range of services. On the downside, some of the rooms look over the car park of a shopping centre.

      This well placed hotel in the southern resort of Playa de las Americas has several big pulls with which no other hotel can possibly compete. It has, in our opinion, by far the best animation setup as well as the most agreable outdoor public spaces including ponds, greenery and even animals. Having excelled in both these respects it would perhaps be harsh to expect the rooms and catering facilities to reach such lofty standards. The former are reasonable enough and charming in their own way, however our experience of the restaurant is one that we'd prefer to forget. And that is a shame, as otherwise, this is without doubt one of the finest places to spend a family holiday in Tenerife.

      The Conquistador is a good all-rounder hotel, a smart choice for a family holiday. It does pretty much everything well (rooms, food, atmosphere) and on top of this has some unique features which make it stand out from the rest, something which is difficult to do in a place like Tenerife. Friendly staff and a great location also help to make of the Conquistador a natural choice for those looking for an easy going break in southern Tenerife.

      This is one of the more classy acts in Tenerife. A hotel primarily for adults, it is intimate, smart and relaxing while close to the beach and town centre. It has stylish, well equipped rooms (all of which face the sea), an excellent restaurant and a magnificent new wellness centre to boot. The staff too is first class and will do everything to make your stay a memorable one. We highly recommend this property to those looking for something a bit special and who want to get away from the noisy, impersonal characteristics of the large hotels.

      The Cleopatra has a lot going for it. It has good spacious rooms, its food is very good, the beach is just outside and it has access to one of the finest kids clubs around (at its sister hotel the Mediterranean Palace next door). It can be quite confusing to find your way around the three buildings which make up the hotel, however once you get the hang of it you'll realise that you made a good choice. Recommended highly for both couples and families.

      The Jardines del Teide is unique among the hotels of Tenerife for several reasons. The thoughtfulness it shows towards its guests is something we didn't see elsewhere, the atmosphere that reins over the property is very special indeed and facilities themselves (rooms, restaurant, miniclub) are top-notch. OK, it isn't right on the beach, but it is high up meaning great views of the surroundings, which together with the above, make it one of our favourite hotel's on the island.

      The Mediterranean Palace is the perfect family hotel. Not only is there a great atmosphere about the place but it is hot on entertainment with a great animation team and a fantastic new kids club. The rest of the hotel's infrastructure isn't bad either with decent rooms, a very good restaurant and an excellent location in the heart of the resort, close to the beach. Yes, the complex can seem intimidatingly large, but overall it is definitely one to consider if you have a several kids who need entertaining.
