Amy Adejokun Section editor

One to be considered by those on a budget, the Oro Negro is a basic hotel with basic facilities. A slightly dated property, it is quite a distance from the beach, but is just opposite a golf course. The place does feel ever so slightly claustrophobic, however if you plan simply to eat and sleep here and then head out to the beach or elsewhere each day then you should perhaps consider this to be your base on the island. Recommended primarily for couples.

    Location 6.5 /10

    The Oro Negro is situated in the southern resort of Playa de las Americas, right opposite the Golf las Americas. Its proximity to the golf course does mean however that it is around 800m from the resort's eponymous beach. It is not too far from the commercial centre of bars, restaurants and shops and is perhaps quieter for this fact. Tenerife's southern airport is 10 miles away while the northern one is 50 miles away. There is no onsite parking, but you'll be able to find a free place round the corner.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 269 rooms at the Oro Negro are divided into two categories: standard and family. The décor in each is identical, the difference being that the family room has two smaller bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The rooms are quite basic and nondescript but have clean lines, are in good condition and favour bright colours in the materials and upholstery. Amenities include a safe (18? per week), telephone and (surprisingly) a flatscreen television. There is no fridge in the room so if you need to store medical supplies see the reception or kitchen who will obligingly put these aside for you. The bathroom, which has a glass door (so not too great for intimacy) and is decked out in white marble with black grain, has a bath with shower, essential toiletries but no bidet. The balconies are fairly small, but have decent furniture and look out either onto the pool, golf course or sea (in the distance). A good side to these rooms is that the sliding doors that give onto the balconies are double double glazed, meaning a silent night's sleep.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    You'll get a pretty clear overall impression of the hotel from its lobby, which is quiet bleak and whose reception desk, on our visit in any case, was manned by a pretty indifferent staff. Although the hotel has over 250 rooms, the complex, as is reflected in the lobby, feels quite small and when full must become quite crowded. The sole pool and its surroundings for example, while clean and correct, don't offer much space around it, although there is a significant area beyond it with sun beds and parasols for sun bathing and relaxation. It is important to note here that no towels are provided for the pool or beach, so make sure you bring your own! In the same area there is also a small kids pool with a modest playground and the miniclub. While this hotel does cater for kids, they are perhaps not its main priority given the condition of the facilities dedicated to them. The English-speaking animators, who also entertain adults during the day with activities such as aqua gym, pétanque and shooting, play games and paint with the young ones either in the open next to the playground, or, if the weather is bad, in the small, dedicated miniclub. At night, there are professional shows put on outside next to the swimming pool, although the set-up is not particularly impressive. There are seven different shows which means that if you stay for longer than a week you will see the same shows all over again. Other amenities at the Oro Negro include pool tables, ping pong tables, baby football, a few mini golf holes in terrible condition and coin-operated PCs for surfing the internet. There is also complimentary wifi, but only in the lobby area. The hotel's grounds, while in reasonable condition and clean, could do with a little more greenery and colour to brighten up the place and make up for the sad interiors.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The Oro Negro has just one buffet restaurant which is located just next to the swimming pool. The tables are packed quite closely together in a room which is without character. We did not get the chance to eat at the Oro Negro, but based purely on looks, we don't think we missed much. That said, there is a reasonable choice of dishes and as the menu runs on a two-week cycle, you won't eat the same thing twice during your stay. What's more, despite our skepticism, by all accounts the guests do like the food and seem happy to eat there throughout the duration of their stay. Each Thursday night there is a gala dinner with complimentary cava and Canarian-themed seafood buffet. The pool has a snack bar which serves refreshments and small appetizers during the pool opening hours, while there is a very dated bar just off the lobby which has a big screen showing major sporting events.

      One of our favourite of all family hotels in Tenerife, the Green Garden is a no-brainer if you're looking for guaranteed good times. There is a certain atmosphere that reigns over the resort which we didn't find in too many other places. What's more, it's large enough to have decent facilities to meet the needs of most but intimate enough that you don't feel choked. Good accommodation is married with tasty food and a hard-working animation team to create what is a great choice for the kids.

      • Location 7.0

      The Tenerife is similar to its sister hotel, Puerto de la Cruz, in the north, in that it is a perfectly respectable family hotel (better in some senses as it as a miniclub and is closer to the sea) but there is really nothing that makes it stand out from the other hundreds of hotels on the island. The rooms are pretty standard, the food just edible and the public spaces could do with cheering up a bit. That said, it is right on the beach and there is a strong animation team meaning this hotel is suitable for families with several children as well as couples who don't mind a lively atmosphere. Certainly not the four-star property it claims to be but worth a look if you're looking to avoid spending huge amounts.

      • 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.

Surely one of our favourite destinations, which guarantees a satisfying and peaceful stay, for honeymoon for example.

      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.

      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.
