Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Tropical Playa is located 500m from the beach in Playa Las Americas and offers accommodation in apartments equipped with kitchens. This is a very basic establishment that is somewhat lacking in the charm department, but it does have a large swimming pool and a good range of sports facilities, including a multi-purpose sports ground and a tennis court. The welcome here is non-existent and the setting rather cold, but at least you won't be disturbed by noise from the hotel's entertainment, as there isn't any!

    Location 5.0 /10

    The hotel stands 500m from the seafront in a quiet area at the heart of Playa de Las Americas, less than a mile from the 18 hole Las Americas Golf Club. The tourist resort and port of Los Cristianos, meanwhile, is around a mile and a half away. Transfer time from Tenerife Sur airport, some 10 and a half miles away, is around 20 minutes. The hotel is about 50mi from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of the island.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    This really is the Tropical Playa's strong point. The guest accommodation here consists of spacious apartments with their own kitchens equipped with two electric hotplates, a sink, a refrigerator, cutlery, crockery, a toaster, a coffee machine, and an oven. The rooms have wooden floors and all come with a small glass desk, a mirror, a painting, a wicker armchair with a cushion, and some light fittings on the walls, which happen to be painted a nice creamy yellow for a touch of charm. Other amenities include a tiny television positioned rather high up, a large safe (available to hire), air-conditioning combined with a ceiling fan, and a phone. There is no Internet access or room service here, but you will have a large balcony furnished with a round table, two chairs and a clothes line, with either a sea, pool, or garden view. The bathrooms, for their part, are perfectly well presented and original, clean, and nicely decorated. They come with a bathtub complete with a handle and shower, a wall-mounted shower gel dispenser, a toilet, and a hair-dryer.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    The Tropical Playa consists of an imposing and rather charmless 7 storey building with 3 lifts and 189 apartments. Having opened in 1995, it was renovated in summer 2002 and boasts a large, 1.9m deep pool, though do bear in mind that the space around the pool is really too restricted for the white plastic deckchairs provided. Parasols and showers are also available but towels are not provided. There is a 24 inch deep heart-shaped children's pool, and massages are sometimes available around the pool. The surroundings consist of palm trees, a fountain, a pool, some lawned areas, and various flowers that brighten the place up.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The buffet at the Tropical Playa offers two sittings for breakfast (7:30am and 10:00am) and two for dinner (7:00pm and 9:30pm). The restaurant is closed at lunchtime, but you can always grab a snack from the pool bar if you get peckish, or even head over to the mini-market for a few bits and pieces to prepare a snack in your apartment. A variety of la carte dishes are available in the restaurant and barbecues are organised from time to time.

    To know

    Free parking is available to guests staying at the hotel, which also has a conference centre. Sports facilities, meanwhile, include a multi-purpose sports ground suitable for playing football, basketball, volleyball, and handball, as well as a tennis court and a gym, so you certainly won't have to worry about keeping fit whilst on holiday! The apartments here all come with their own kitchen and the mini-market is open from 8:00am to 8:00pm, should you wish to prepare a light meal. XXX

      • 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.

      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.

      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.

      This is a great family hotel with lots of atmosphere and a focus on kids and animation. It certainly isn't the smartest or best equipped property on the island but everyone seems to be having a good time here. The rooms are spacious and well-kept, there is plenty of space in which to relax and, although small, the restaurant serves decent fare. The animation team also makes sure that both young and old are kept entertained throughout their stay. We recommended the Gran Oasis for families looking to have a fun-filled holiday without breaking the bank.

      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.

      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 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.

      If you're searching for a mid-range hotel with a complete range of facilities for all the family, look no further than the Gala. Ok, it's not right on top of the beach, but aside from that you can't take anything away from this hotel: spacious, comfortable rooms, good sport and wellness facilities, a great infrastructure for kids, decent food and all this right in the centre of the tourist zone of Playa de las Americas. What's more it has something that no hotel can build or buy - a fun, lively atmosphere. We would recommend this for couples, groups of friends and families who want a good value all-round hotel experience.
