Amy Adejokun Section editor

A quiet, medium-sized hotel with a great location, the Las Vegas is a reasonable choice for couples looking for good value and who only require basic services. The rooms are of a good standard, the food is likewise decent without being ground-breaking and the hotel's public spaces are comfortable, if not a little dated and impersonal at times. While children are very welcome at the hotel, there is no dedicated miniclub or programme for kids and so they may have more fun elsewhere. For the beach though and nightlife, you couldn't get much closer.

    Location 6.5 /10

    Together with the H10 Tenerife Playa, this hotel couldn't be better situated just across from a small black sand beach and minutes from all the action with restaurants, bars and shops pretty much on the doorstep. The resort, Puerto de la Cruz, is situated in the north of the island of Tenerife and is favoured more by older couples or perhaps families with one just one child. The immediate vicinity of the hotel can get quite crowded and animated being close to the town centre so this is probably not the best hotel option if you are looking for peace and quiet. There is no car park at the hotel, but you will be able to find a parking space in the roads surrounding the property. The island's northern airport is located 18 miles to the east while the southern hub is 57 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    There are only two types of room at the Las Vegas, and to be honest, the difference between them is marginal. The standard rooms are of a reasonable size and simply appointed with basic furniture including a desk, bedside tables and two chairs all in the same light coloured wood. In addition to the two armchairs and coffee table, amenities include a regular television, safe (10? deposit and 18? per week thereafter) and a Van Gogh print above the bed which is dressed in a floral cover. The bathrooms are quite cosy and are fitted with white marble with black detail. They come with bathtub with shower, bidet, hairdryer and personalised sachet toiletries and are in good condition. There is a modest sized balcony with goo quality furniture and which look out on to the volcano Teide or the sea. The superior rooms are identical to the standards, aside from the presence of an extra 10m² or so of living space which comprises a sofa bed and the displaced desk and television found in the other rooms. Their bathrooms are bigger and boast double vanities while those superiors without balconies have instead floor-to-ceiling windows.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The sole factor preventing the Las Vegas looking like every other resort hotel you've seen is the jaunty-angled glass entrance which seems to have been wedged under the protruding first floor. Inside, the vast open plan lobby, which is a little impersonal, contains not only the reception desk, but also, around its edge, card playing rooms, pool tables, a conservatory for relaxation, ping pong tables, a kids play area, a hairdresser, a supplies shop and coin-operated PCs. Just outside you'll find a pétanque pitch and bowling facilities. Also outside is a mini golf course and other games such as shuffle board. Many of these activities are the basis of competitions organised by the animators throughout the day while several nights per week a professional show is put on such as live music or magic and is followed y such activities as bingo or quizzes.

    Outside in the pool area, which is surrounded by lush greenery, one main swimming pool and a small kids pool wait for those wishing to take a dip. The views up and around of the pool aren't great due to the height of the buildings which also block the sun for parts of the day. There is however ample room for everyone and some of the loungers are posed on a shortly grazed lawn next to trees of varying sizes. The rest of the hotel's public spaces are a little dated in terms of their décor, but are functional and clean and orderly. The highlight though is the small garden below the pool with at its centre a fountain. As well as a terrace alongside it, there is also a balcony which runs along the hotel above it, both perfect for a quiet drink or for reading a book in the shade.

    The hotel doesn't have a wellness of fitness centre, however various treatments can be arranged upon request. As well as the coin-operated PCs internet can be picked up for free in public spaces for those with a laptop.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The hotel has just one buffet restaurant where all three meals are served. It is well appointed, with retro-looking chairs and sleek furniture and is a light, bright room with good views of the coast. As for the food, although there are quite a few original ideas, the choice of main dishes especially, is not very big. There is a selection of lighter snacks too, which is not something found everywhere, while the desserts included a sugar-free option which is a nice touch and bread and cheese, which is also not so common. The lobby houses a bar to the right of the main entrance, although it looks more like a coffee shop and, being within the main hall, is not a particularly relaxing place to be, unless of course you intend to watch a sports event on the flatscreen television. The pool has a snack bar which serves beverages and light meals such as sandwiches and omelettes during the day, while at night, as well as the lobby bar, you'll find a place for drinks at the show bar, just where the evening's entertainment takes place.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The closest beach, just outside the hotel, is Playa de Martiánez. The beach enjoys fine white sand although this is mixed with a little seaweed once in the water, which is pretty clear. There is plenty of space in which to sunbathe and sufficient loungers, which are available at a fee (all beaches in Spain are public). Even in the high season one does not feel too claustrophobic. Note that it can get quite windy in this part of the coast.

    To know

    While the rooms at the Las Vegas are perfectly serviceable and comfortable, there will be changes coming very soon. For example the standard rooms, which currently have no fridges, will see vending machines introduced, while the superior rooms will be ridden of their pairs of single beds and receive double beds with a new range of linen. If you are coming as a family and are hoping to be free of the kids for the majority of the day then this isn't the place for you as there is only a small playground to occupy them and no dedicated animators. The hotel does have six rooms reserved for disabled guests however they do not have walk-in showers, just regular bathtubs.

      Located by the sea and close to the Lago Martianez aquatic complex, the Atlantis hotel is an outfit with a traditional and somewhat old-fashioned style. Although equipped with a mini-club, it is more convenient for couples rather than families.

      Aside from the hotel's proximity to the beach and the fact that it's located in a quiet residential area, there isn't a whole lot going for the Interpalace. We found it to be quite tired and dated (although clean and comfortable) and lacking a bit of atmosphere. This maybe because it is not a hotel intended for children (welcome though they are) or because the facilities are shared with the Bonanza across the way. The Interpalace would be best suited those staying for a long period (the rooms are very spacious) but who intend on spending most of their time outside. One to consider but lower down on the list?

      The Chimisay is a peaceful little establishment at the heart of the pedestrian city centre of Puerto de La Cruz. It has 60 unpretentious guest rooms and offers good value for money. It doesn't exactly excel when it comes to the number of facilities on offer, but does nevertheless boast a panoramic rooftop swimming pool offering pretty views over the sea, the tower of the church opposite, and Mount Teide, when it deigns to show itself!

      This hotel is a charming little place that stands out among the large charmless resorts dominating the Tenerife landscapes. Located in the pedestrian centre of Puerto de La Cruz, the Marquesa occupies a historic building which was once the former residence of a Marquis, as its name indicates. This hotel doesn't exactly excel when it comes to the number of facilities on offer, but does nevertheless boast a panoramic rooftop swimming pool with a whirlpool offering pretty views over the sea, the tower of the church opposite, and Mount Teide, when it deigns to show itself!

      Despite having been renovated in 1998 (which in hotel terms is quite a while back itself), the style of the hotel has no doubt remained the same since it opened in the 70s. It is a simple hotel with basic services, overwhelmingly catering for the older guest, hence the insistence on keeping the original, slightly dated style. Its location is the best, but it can boast good service and decent food, along with comfortable rooms and good views. Ideal for those simply looking to do very little for as long as possible!

      The Tenerife Playa is a delightful hotel, perfect for couples looking for a bit of class and quality at a reasonable price. A relaxed atmosphere reins over the hotel, in large part due to the absence of children, although of course they are very welcome. While the rooms and services of the hotel are of a high standard, it has two main trump cards: its restaurant and its location. This is definitely one to consider if you're looking to come to the north of the island.

      Perched on its eagle's nest on the heights of Puerto de la Cruz, the Las Aguilas hotel stands out from other hotels of the island. The services offered are more worthy of a 5* hotel than of a 4*, and will meet the expectations of loving couples as well as children with its countless facilities designed for these categories. Just the right address.

      The Luabay is probably the trendiest, and certainly the youngest, hotel in Puerto de la Cruz. It is a breath of fresh air in an area with many worn out hotels. It has a good range of services, spacious, functional rooms and a very good restaurant. While not entirely focused on families with kids, it does have entertainment for the little ones as well as adults too. Despite its distance from the beach, we'd definitely recommend this cool property for a fun-filled, stress-free break in the sun.

      The Semiramis stands right on the rocky shore and is a large and charmless 17-storey building which does, nevertheless, afford breath-taking panoramic views across the sea from the lobby, the guest rooms and the restaurant. To be perfectly honest, this 5* establishment is more what you would expect of a 4* and could do with a bit of a makeover in places. The surroundings here are very (perhaps too?) quiet and the hotel also has a spa and two swimming pools, the first bring indoor and heated, the second of semi-Olympic size. In a nutshell, this place is best-suited to couples of a certain age seeking a relaxing holiday by the sea.
