Amy Adejokun Section editor

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 /10

    The Tenerife has a great position right on the beach in the southern resort of Playa de la Americas. It is very close to the main tourist centre with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to tempt you should you choose not to eat at the hotel (which is not a bad idea now and again). The hotel does have a car park but there may not be enough spaces so you'll have to find one on the roads around. If you are coming by car then pay attention when approaching the hotel as trying to access it is a bit of a pain and if you miss the entrance you'll have to negotiate the one way system again before retrying. The island's southern airport is 12 miles away while the northern one is 50 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    There is just one type of room at the Tenerife and most of them have a sea view. The surface area isn't huge which means that staying over one week might become a bit of a strain. The furniture, which comprises a desk, table and chairs, bedside tables and butler, is all in a turquoise coloured wood and the amenities include flatscreen television, safe (deposit plus 1.50? per day charge), fridge and telephone. There is a Dali print above the bed, while the tiny balcony is redeemed thanks to its sea view. The bathroom, which stunk of bleach on our visit and which is quite pokey, has a bidet, bathtub with shower, hairdryer and personalized toiletries. For groups or those with families, the only option of being together is to reserve two interconnecting rooms are there are no family rooms or suites here.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The hotel is comprised of two unsightly 11-floor towers although this does mean that there are many uninterrupted views of the sea to be had from the bedrooms. The lobby is a low-ceilinged, two tier affair with the reception desk on the superior part where, while we were there anyhow, the staff wasn't particularly upbeat although they did deal with our requests. Aside from the several seating areas and green plants adorning the space, there is a bank of coin-operated PCs in the lower part for surfing the internet (2? for 15 mins, wifi is 4? per hour). Outside are three swimming pools, including one for kids, which all have views of the sea just beyond the palm-lined wall in front of them. The space is fairly calm and there is plenty of space to take in the sun's rays all day long (despite the tall accommodation buildings, the sun is not blocked). There are plenty of loungers to go around, however we did notice that some of them were not in the best shape and were a little grubby. Note that there is a 10? deposit for towels and a 1? charge for changing them.

    The pools are also the scene for several daily animation activities such as water polo and aerobics, while other fun for adults includes cooking demonstrations, rifle shooting and volleyball. For the kids, they can amuse themselves with magic tricks, makeup sessions and of course the mini disco in the evening. There is, between the months of May and October, a mini club too where they can paint, play games and watch videos (minimum 5 children). The evening's entertainment, which takes place either outside when the weather allows, or inside on the purpose built stage, can include such performances as fashion shows, acrobatics and flamenco, with, at other times, chill out music or disco dancing.

    There are no real wellness facilities at the hotel, instead a rather old and tired massage centre with not ambiance. It is quite basic but offers a small range of treatments should you feel the need to unwind. In addition there is a hammam and simple fitness room. Other amenities at the hotel include a tennis court, mini football pitch and a TV/games rooms. The general condition of the hotel is good but would look a lot nicer if more plants and colour was added. Access to the rooms is quick and easy with two lifts in each tower and there is only one corridor on each floor so difficult to lose yourself.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    There is just one buffet restaurant at the Tenerife which serves all three meals. The room itself is pretty uninspiring with no real effort having been made to brighten it up. It is best to try and get a seat at the back of the room where there is a glass roof and therefore more light. Our lunch there was not the best of experiences. While the food was edible, the salads looked like they had been prepared some time before the lunch service. The rest of the meal was better and the service was attentive and efficient. The food changes on a two-week cycle which means that you probably won't come across the same menu twice during your stay. If you fancy a snack between meals then head to the pool bar open during the day where light bites can be ordered as well as a range of drinks to sipped buy the pool or at the bar's terrace by the pool. The Bar Barcelone is open in the evenings and is where the night's entertainment takes place if the weather doesn't allow for it to be outside.

    To know

    The hotel does welcome guests in wheelchairs and there are some rooms dedicated to their use however they are not fully adapted and so may not be entirely suitable for these guests. For guests with families you should note that there are not specifically designed family rooms at the hotel. A family room simply comprises two interconnecting standard rooms.

      • 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 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 6.5

      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.

      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.

      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.

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.
