The Seaside Los Jameos Playa Hotel is a cut above, offering tropical-look pools and a buffet restaurant that TripAdvisor reviewers rave about.
The Seaside Los Jameos Playa Hotel is a stone’s throw away from the sandy beach. The harbour town of Puerto del Carmen is a few minutes’ drive along the coast.
Local artist and architect César Manrique inspired the hotel’s palm gardens and cavernous, lantern-lit lobby.

Drowning in success
This hotel continues to get very good reviews, and rightly so, for it is extremely well managed and the staff are excellent. We have been regular visitors, having first stayed here in 2000 which wasn't long after it opened, and the guests were primarily German with a smattering of other Europeans and no British. The dress code was impeccably observed. A lot of the men wore jackets to dinner - no-one wore jeans, let alone shorts - and the ladies were elegant - the evening was an occasion, the buffet was easy to negotiate and interaction with the other guests was something to look forward to. Around the pool there always seemed to be plenty of sunbeds and I can't recall anyone being crazy enough to lie on one at sunrise just to reserve it. A few years ago the owners decided to repackage the hotel as an all inclusive venue and we have noticed a distinct change year on year, sadly not for the better. The staff are still super, as is the food and the hotel in general is a very attractive place to spend a week, but the sheer volume of guests is overwhelming it and that's because with the staff, the food and the hotel being so good, the all inclusive package makes it a real bargain and word's spreading. For the first time, last year I thought the buffet was chaotic. I'm used to waiting for an outdoor table - that doesn't bother me - but negotiating the mass of other guests in the salad and dessert areas inside and the various cooking stations outside was unpleasant. The dress code is of course now totally ignored and although I don't tend to use them, getting a sunbed in a reasonable location seems to depend upon how early you're prepared to get up and sit on it - I've heard 5.30 being mentioned on more than one occasion. I feel the hotel has gone down market and this has been confirmed by several of the staff. When it was half board they got generous tips, now that it's all inclusive they get hardly any. Obviously this has been a very good decision by Seaside Hotels in terms of profitability, and if it's all inclusive you want, then it certainly won't disappoint, in fact, I doubt if you'll find better, but all inclusive is not our preference and sadly this is no longer the Jameos Playa we used to know and enjoy.More
All-inclusive week in May
We traveled in the UK summer half-term holiday, and East Midlands airport had no air-con, and our flight was full of unconstrained small children. So it was a relief to be dropped at Los Jameos, and be met with a calm welcome and a glass of champagne. This hotel is large, and we had a spacious room, with a big balcony overlooking the tennis courts. On this side of the hotel you can get noise from the bars across the street at night into the small hours, but that's easily blotted out with the air conditioning. We had no trouble sleeping at all. The food is fantastic, and as others have noted, it's best to be strategic about your mealtimes, to avoid the crowds. I particularly liked the freshly cooked fish and the delicious salads. The terrace and piano bar are worth a pre- and post- dinner visit. We ate and drank like kings (some might say pigs). The grounds are amazing, with a huge range of tropical and desert plants, making it feel like holidaying in botanical gardens. In addition, the hotel has many internal but open courtyards full of plants that serve to cool the interior. But cast yourself back to school and remember that the trade winds blow steadily in the spring and summer at these latitudes, so it will be windy! There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas. The hotel will mark unoccupied loungers but I never saw them need to follow that up - they were usually only temporarily empty and the owners were able to reclaim before any of their items were removed. The internet was slow, so be aware that this is not a good location for streaming media. But have a break from all that. Read a book. This was out first foray into all-inclusive, and it was a very relaxing experience...More
Good Place to stay, especially if you want a good food and relaxation.
Just arrived back from Los Jameos where we had a great holiday. Hotel, pool facilities, staff were excellent. The only reason we are not giving it a 5 star is that we found that the entertainment for the young children who were at the hotel went on too late (21.30p.m.) and then they were allowed to stay around the dance floor and running freely when the adult entertainers was trying to do their acts for us adults. Also, the DJ needs to trained to speak a little slower and also on how to keep people on the floor dancing as the choice of music was rather erratic and not flowing on times, plus they left just a tape running after a certain time. They must realise that the majority of the people being entertained during our stay were ~40+ and 70/80/90 music would have been great for everybody as it was the dancing era. All in all will consider returning again one day.More
GREAT STAY, OUTSTANDING!!
Just arived home after a week stay from Los Jameos after travelling with Thomas Cook. The food was excellent and had a great choice each day (the steaks at dinner were as good as you will get anywhere). The drinks were all premium brands and very generous measures. We like to wonder around in the morning so we often eat out for breakfast and tried the Hot Spot in the town a few times which was very good! Around lunchtime, we made our way to the Tiny Bar, which is a must visit bar with an amazing sea view and great barmaid called Janet who was brilliant with us. The room was kept spotless every day clean towels provided etc. The entertainment in the evening was also very good as was the piono bar music. The reception staff were very helpful everytime I spoke to them and have a great understanding of what people actually want! The pool areas are very clean and have a pool bar where again nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The location of the hotel was fabulous as you can walk either way from the rear entrance to shops, pubs and restaurants. The Anchor Bar next door caters for all live sports and the service is really good. All in alI I give this venue 10/10 because I couldnt fault it in any way. This is a very brief revue but we will be going back again and have to recommend to everyone!! Well done to all concerned.More
We stayed here for a week at the beginning of June , it was amazing . The food was brilliant , staff always pleasant and helpful and rooms clean . The entertainment at night was better than we expected too . We tried to find fault with it and the only fault we could find was that the double bed was really too singles pushed together and that the pillows were a bit soft . We asked for extra pillows and they were put into our room straight away . Amazing hotel 😃👍More
