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.

    Location 7.0 /10

    La Siesta enjoys a privileged situation right in the heart of the southern resort of Playa de las Americas. It is just seconds away from the collection of bars, restaurants and stores of the resort and the beach is just a few minutes' walk away too. Fans of golf will be pleased to know that the golf course which shares its name with the area is less then a mile from the hotel. The hotel doesn't have a car park although you will be able to find a parking spot along the road just outside the hotel. The island's southern airport is 14 miles away while the northern airport is 52 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    La Siesta offers several types of room with varying amenities and, sizes and views. The standard room has a generous surface area and even includes a small seating area which is not always a given with standard rooms. The lively matching linen and curtains and the floral paintings on the wall do a lot to give character to the room, while its furniture includes bedside tables, a desk, coffee table and wardrobe. Amenities in the room take the form of a regular television, safe (free of charge) and fridge (deposit required). The long balcony is equipped with some basic furniture, while the spacious bathroom has a bathtub with shower, bidet, hairdryer and a small basket of toiletries. The superior rooms which are very similar boast a hydro massage bathtub while the Club Alexandre rooms in clued a pool view, one entry to the spa per person per day, bathrobes and slippers and fruit and water on arrival. For a little more space think about opting for the junior suite which boasts a jacuzzi as well as sea views.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    It's difficult to miss La Siesta, a long peach-coloured structure in the centre of the resort, with its name in large letters emblazoned on a support structure. Above the main entrance is the hotel's butterfly emblem whose grace is perhaps a little misleading in terms of the reality of the hotel. The lobby, which has a mirrored ceiling, is not the most attractive in the world with a clash of styles at reception between the bamboo and marble tiling. The chill out music though was welcome (and is welcoming, just like the staff) and the flower arrangements on the tables at each cluster of seating brighten the space up. The rest of the lobby is largely empty with a mix of wicker and old fashioned upholstered furniture taking up some of the space. Outside you'll find the hotel's main pool with a smaller one close by for children. There is heaps of space in which to set up your lounger and parasol and take in the rays all day which are not blocked by the low-rise buildings surrounding the area. The bridge which arches over the pool leads on one side to Magic Park the hotel's kids club. An excellent facility, it comprises two rooms with arcade games, a ball pool and everything else needed to keep the little ones entertained (although in the afternoon parents must accompany their children). There is a full animation programme for both adults and kids involving sports tournaments, a minidisco and entertainment such as the Eagle Show and traditional music.

    Natural is La Siesta's spa and wellness centre, which also has a small fitness room with basic machines. The entrance is made atmospheric with tiny spotlights in the ceiling resembling a night sky, while the rest comprises four treatment rooms, a hair salon and both a hydrotherapy pool and jacuzzi. Not the most complete or aesthetically pleasing spa in Tenerife, but one with a good offering of treatments and which is perhaps a bit of a surprise for a hotel of this standing. The hotel also offers a business centre with coin-operated PCs, free wifi in the lobby (this will be extended to some rooms soon) and a tennis court.

    The hotel is in good condition despite being filled with dated décor and furniture and is clean and user-friendly. Access to the rooms is easy if not sometimes quite lengthly.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    The hotel has just one, unexceptional, main restaurant, El Drago. All three of the day's meals are served here in the form of an international buffet with a barbeque accompanied by traditional music taking place once a week. During our visit we found the restaurant to be below par. The floor was dirty, there were not enough waiters and waitresses and as a result some of the trays of food were left empty. El Bohío is the hotel's pool bar, open during the hours of the pools and serving light lunches (sandwiches, burgers etc) and all kinds of beverages. In the evenings head for the Piano Bar from 5pm for a drink and, in winter, the animation show. Slightly dated, it would probably be wiser and more pleasant to sit outside on the terrace if the weather allows.

    To know

    The hotel offers four categories of room each one with more advantages than the next. When booking your room make sure you ask about the difference in price between one category and then next as sometimes it can be as little as 6? per day although what you get in return is worth much more (financially or otherwise).

      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.

      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

      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 7.16

      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.

      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.

      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.
