    Location 7.0 /10

    By the sea, in the zone of hotels south of Las Americas, on the south side of Tenerife, close to several golf courses. It is 1.5 miles away from the tourist area of Los Cristianos and its port. Located 10.5 miles away from the Tenerife Sur airport, it takes 20 minutes to drive to the hotel. The hotel is at about 50 miles from Santa Cruz in Tenerife, the island's capital.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The rooms are all different with a personal style and decoration, but sharing one common point, their irreproachable comfort and king sizes. Once you get to the lobbies you have the impression of walking along the corridors of a Mexican palace in the colonial era. The interior of the rooms is simply superb with wooden furniture, paintings portraying the Mexican colonial period and complete equipment: telephone with direct access to the international line, fax and Internet ports, wifi access, cable television judiciously hidden in the cupboard (40 channels), discreet individual air-conditioner supplemented by a ceiling fan, mini-bar, a big and free electronic safe (that can take a laptop), king size bed and a large appointed terrace opening to the sea, mountain or the delicious tropical garden. The bathroom is wonderful, spacious and exquisitely decorated with patterns portraying Middle Age arms: marble double basin, bathtub equipped with a handle and shower, separate toilet, bidet, telephone, shoe polish, bathrobe, slippers, toiletries, tissue, magnifying mirror and hair dryer. A small pool is available for children.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    Villa Cortes looks like a colonial-styled Mexican palace, 5-storey building painted with purple, yellow and red pastel, lodging 151 elegant and spacious rooms. The scenery changes as you step into the lobby, very classy with its columns, arcades, furniture worthy of a castle, candles, mirrors and chandeliers. Mosaic floor, wall fresco, cupola, picture window ceiling, painted ceiling, an absolutely gorgeous decoration with finesse, numerous small objects like the wooden statues of knights. Outside, surrounded by an 86,080 feet² garden is a large salt water and air-conditioned pool lodging two powerful waterfalls covering a grotto and an islet raised by a palm tree. Towels are supplied free of charge directly on the spot. Further is a chapel crowning the summit of a Maya Pyramid. All around are wooden deck chairs, beach umbrellas, showers and a small pool for children, who also have a mini club.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    Fine gourmet guests at Villa Cortes will not be disappointed, alternating between 5 a la carte restaurants and one buffet restaurant, the Veracruz, which offers international, Italian and Mexican cuisine. Breakfast is served from 7:00 to 10:30 AM and dinner from 7:00 to 10:00 PM. For lunch, you can enjoy delicious Mediterranean cuisine at the Sirena terrace jutting out over the pool, or the Beach Club solarium terrace close to the beach, unless you prefer to taste German specialties at Braumichaus. Waiters and waitresses dressed in traditional Bavarian clothes will generously serve you large draft beers in the middle of copper drums used for manufacturing the beer (for decoration only). In the evening after reserving, rendez-vous at Pancho Villa, an a la carte Mexican restaurant serving only dinner, or at Tiziano, gourmet restaurant worth featuring in the Michelin guide. On the menu you have avocado ratatouille terrine, sauteed langoustine salad and common shrimps, tagliatelli served with octopus stew or broiled live lobster. Enjoy your meal! To chill out, you can choose between the Chiringuito bar jutting out over the beach, the lobby bar and the piano bar nestled in a beautiful flowery patio livened by a waterfall.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    A rare privilege in the Canary Islands, guests at Villa Cortes enjoy a private beach, some sort of artificial basin surrounded with concrete, the Playa El Guncho. You can relax on wooden deck chairs with beds where you are served your favourite cocktails directly, under beach umbrellas. At midday, you have a good meal at the Beach Club with its magnificent view to the ocean.

      • 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.

      • 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.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
