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.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The H10 Conquistador is situated in a fairly central spot in the southern resort of Playa de las Americas. The restaurants, bars and shops of the tourist centre are just a few minutes' walk away as is the closest beach, which shares its name with the resort. There is no car park on the hotel premises, however there is plenty of free on-street parking around the hotel. The island's southern airport is 11 miles away, while the northern airport is 56 miles along the motorway.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    There several categories of room at the Conquistador, ranging from standard to suite. The basic rooms, half of which have been renovated, are really quite smart, with a cream and navy blue theme running through the curtains, bed spread and fabric on the headboard. Not only is the furniture contemporary but it is also in good condition. Amenities include a regular television, a safe (18? per week, 10? deposit), a fridge (2.70? per day), a desk and an armchair. Rooms all have a modest balcony with basic garden furniture which look onto the interior of the island or out to sea in some cases. The bathrooms are quite dated, not having been modernised for six years, but are in a decent way and have personalised toiletries in sachets as well as a bathtub with shower, bidet and hairdryer. Those rooms which have not been renovated are similar, the difference being the outmoded décor and the absence of a fridge. The next category of room is the privilege which is also very modern in its décor and boasts higher quality furnishings as well as being bigger in surface area. Not only do they also have sea views but the extra amenities include free newspaper, complimentary beach towels, bath robe, slippers and coffee. The junior suites have a separate living space and benefit from extras such as sofa bed, flatscreen television, free minibar and a large balcony with loungers. The views from the junior suites can be of either the interior of the hotel or an oblique sea view. For a full sea view, go for a suite proper.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    There's no missing the Conquistador, occupying as it does a large spot on the corner of two main roads. The entrance is quite grand, with a gold canopy above the front door and once inside you'll soon get a feel of the joyful atmosphere from the smart, smiling staff behind the reception and the guest services counter. The lobby extends over a wide area with contemporary seating at the couple of bars to the right. Opposite the welcome desk are the stairs leading down to the floor below (shops, tour operator info etc) and outside, to the pool area. This huge space, which is both clean and calm, has three pools in total: one enormous main pool, another smaller heated pool and a kids one. At the centre of the main pool is an island specially reserved for members of the Privilege Club. Guests will need their room key to enter the smart area which comprises designer loungers and sun beds under a canvas canopy. It certainly looks comfortable, however you may feel rather conscious of sunning yourself in full view of everyone around the pool. In any case, there is plenty of room next to the pools and where you can enjoy a full day of sun with no worry of the buildings blocking your rays. Note that there is a 15? deposit for towels and a 1.50? charge for each one. Also next to the pools is a kids playing area with climbing frame etc. The Daisy kids club is where children can pass the day painting, playing games and, later in the evening, participating in the minidisco. For adults (and children too if they feel like it), the hotel's three animators organise various activities throughout the day including archery, tai-chi and even Spanish classes! At night there are various shows put on usually involving song and dance and brought in from outside.

    The hotel has its own professional fitness and wellness centre in the form of the Thalasso Centre. Offering a range of massages and therapies, including shiatsu, watsu and physiotherapy, it also specialises in thalassotherapy and has other treatments and a hairdresser too. The new gym has top-of-the-range machines and flatscreen televisions on the wall to help you through your exercises.

    The Privilege Club, reserved for members, is a chic lounge area with sea views where guests can relax in front of the large flatscreen television with a complimentary drink or catch up on work emails at the free to use business centre. Also available in the lounge, which is fitted out with a shiny marble floor and sleek, contemporary furniture, are daily newspapers and a terrace complete with loungers, cabanas and a jacuzzi. Given the relatively small cost of upgrading to the Privilege Club, we'd strongly recommend it. Other amenities at the hotel include an arcade room, two tennis courts and free wifi in the public areas of the hotel.

    The general condition of the hotel is very good although some of the corridors could do with repainting. Getting around is easy and although there may be high numbers of guests at any one time it never feels claustrophobic. The welcoming staff also makes a big difference.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The hotel has one main buffet restaurant as well as a barbeque à la carte offering next to the pool. The former serves all three meals and is brightly decorated with red floor tiling and table cloths to match. The service comes with a smile and the food itself is pretty good. There is less of a choice at lunch time although seeing as the menus change on a two-week cycle, you'll never eat the same thing twice. Vegetarians will not go hungry with several options for them, while meat eaters will love the huge steaks! In terms of bars, the snack bar by the pool, La Choza, serves beverages and light meals during the pools' opening hours under a thatched roof, while the Piano bar in the lobby is a funky, modern joint with modish seating carrying on for tens of metres down the hallway next to the reception. The Teide bar/disco opens during the winter only and is where the nightly entertainment takes place during that season.

    To know

    The Conquistador is a relatively large hotel with 485 rooms. It thus takes time to renovate which explains why only half of the rooms have been updated. Although there is little difference between the two in terms of amenities, you may like to ask at the time of booking whether it's possible to have a renovated room which is a little more fresh and up-to-date. Also of note is the hotel's Privilege Club, whose members have extra amenities in their room, as well as access to the Lounge and the island in the main pool. See 'Hotel Overview' and 'Accommodation' for more details.

      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.

      • 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.

      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

      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.

      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 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.
