This sea-view hotel hugs the beach and comes with a great pool scene, too. Plus it’s got 3 top restaurants.
The grounds at this smart, whitewashed hotel lead straight on to the sands of Esquinzo de Jandia Beach. There are 4 pools, too – 3 for adults, 1 for children. One of them even has an island-based cocktail bar.
For meals, you’ve got a buffet restaurant and an à la carte place on the seafront. After dinner, there are live evening shows, and a choice of 5 bars.

Food and service
Don't touch the BBQ the food isnt cooked properly. The staff are always happy to help if you speak to them in spanish. The evening entertainment was okay. Not enough bar staff. Got a bit fed up of cutting my feet on the broken pool tiles.More

Good location, friendly staff, bad food and crazy dinner procedures - long trousers required
When I go for summer vacation I never take full-lenght trousers. This was the first time for years I was not allowed to enter the hotel restaurant for dinner ! (but women with extremally short skirts were more than welcome). It was not a great lose as the food was rather bad but what a stupid idea ? The guys at the restaurant entrance recommended to buy trousers in the hotel (120-150euro). Fortunatelly the were small bars in the pool area (but not open every day) so I managed to survive without full-lenght trousers.More

Another enjoyable stay
This was our second visit to this hotel and again really enjoyed our stay. All these negative comments about the staff preferring German or French guests and ignoring English ones are just untrue, all the staff were very helpful and pleasant, especially Beatriz at the reception who greeted us when we arrived. The hotel is set over a large area right next to the beach. The rooms are kept spotless and the service in the restaurants cannot be faulted. The pools are immaculate and the grounds are kept clean and tidy. I really cannot think of anything to fault this hotel for and have no hesitation recommending it, though it is a way from the town of Jandia so not ideal for people wanting to be near bars and clubs. This was our second visit here and definitely will not be our last, look forward to coming next year. On another note, I booked this hotel through âLove Holidaysâ who arranged the hotel and flights but not the transfer from the airport. I did the transfer through Zip Transfers and the service was superb. Soon as we arrived there was a people carrier (even though there was only two of us) waiting for us at the airport that whisked us to the hotel and collected us when we had to return. I would recommend this company for anyone needing to book a transfer (they do most destinations in Spain and elsewhere).More

Definately NOT disability friendly
We booked this hotel with Thomas Cook and ended up wishing we hadn't. This hotel has a great food selection and is spotlessly clean but,,,,,,,,if you are English you get ignored a lot by the staff especially the 'Lookea team ' who seem to cater for the French and Spanish. This hotel is NOT disability friendly as it has a steep gradient to the pools. My wife has M.S. and had we known about this gradient we would not have booked here, Thomas Cook DID NOT advise us of this problem and I have since been told it is not their fault . The rooms are quite roomy unless there are 3 in one room, the cleaning lady we had was fantastic. I personally found the entertainment team boring at times but if you like classical dancing your'e in for a treat. I would not say dont go because its a nice hotel but dont book with Thomas Cook , you dont have a rep and you have to phone England if you have a problem or want to know your pick up time for the airport at the end of your stayMore

First time visitors from the UK, we didn't quite know what to expect. 2 of us went all inclusive for Â£500 each for 7 nights through Thompson / First Choice. Not to be Confused with the Jandia Princess hotel which is next door, the main hotel is a very nice building with an excellent wood roof atrium. Weather was 30-35C strong sun all week and was occasionally very windy. Burning likely! The airy clean and large rooms are arranged like small blocks of flats in a very nice layout around the site. Air conditioning worked OK, each has a nice balcony and most have a view of the sea. Very Pretty at night with nice lighting around the site. Food is generally good. I would say 3star plus is a realistic rating, but certainly no complaints. Breakfast 0700-1100 was fairly good, bacon 6/10 cereals, fruit, continental and cooked available, all fresh. Lunch and evening dinner constantly restocked with a wide range of freshly cooked meats, local fish, soups, fresh Italian pizza, pasta, various Spanish, European and English main meals, chips, fresh salad, ice cream and desserts. Different choice every night. Attentive table service with good wine and chilled water but trousers are compulsory after 1830, not even posh shorts. The fresh bread is particularly nice. More than Suitable for fussy eaters. There is however a 'lively' French family tour company called "Club Lookea" based at the hotel. They operate within the hotel, with their branding and signs up and around,. Seemingly providing numerous activities and entertainment for kids & teens etc, but only for people booked through them, so ordinary guests are not permitted to join in the fun, much to some people's disappointment. They are an occasional distraction with short bursts of loud music and the odd annoying staff member but generally they are OK. The site has a pleasant ambient hum of pool play and fun, but is Not a place for a totally quiet time as it is very family friendly. Avoid if you hate kids on holiday. Pools were fairly good, 23C all the time, open 8am-6pm. Get your towel out by 7-9am for best spots, they get snapped up quick but there are various lounger locations with 30% in the shade, 60% no shade & poolside, 10% quiet. Sun cream a must, burning likely!! There's a Small turn over of free loungers so there's always 1or 2 available. The drinks bars are sometimes understaffed but fully stocked with unlimited Cruz Campo beer, loads of good liqueurs, spirits and soft drink. open in various inside, terrace and poolside locations from 1030 til 2330. The friendly helpful staff appreciate a bit of Spanish so know your basics. Free bottles of water at reception bar all day. Right next to a lovely beach with windsurf hire etc a short walk from the hotel. Not much immediately around the hotel, cheap supermarket just up the road next to the taxi rank, but definitely go on some sort of organised tour of the island, there's some stunning panoramas, quaint villages in the mountains, goats cheese farms, aloe vera plantations, lots of outdoor sports and much more. There is a short promenade at the lighthouse on Playas de Jandia, a â¬8 taxi ride away that has a slight feel of the late 90's. A few clothes shops, satisfactory restaurants and souvenir shops, cheap tobacco and cosmetics. The African market there, open Monday and Thursday 10am til 2pm is well worth a visit for 100% fake bags, watches, sunglasses, jewellery and the occasional good buy. Don't be fooled, but Worth splashing Â£10-20 of your holiday money. Do a bit of bartering, best price boss, best price cheap as chips. So in summary, It was a little frayed around the edges, probably at its best 7-10 years ago, but is a pleasurable experience. Overall a very good hotel, 3star plus bordering on 4 star in places. not as quiet as I thought it was going to be, but perhaps going 11-18 July was fortunate as it was 80% occupancy when we checked in, 90% on the 15th only becoming fully booked on the last day so didn't see it at its worst. :) Thanks for reading More
