When it comes to location, Playa Olid gets a solid A-plus - it's close to the beach and Siam Park waterpark. Families are well catered for, too, thanks to a child-friendly pool, spacious apartments, and buffet restaurant offering takeaway options.
Playa Olid is set in a lively corner of town with a range of bars, shops, and restaurants on its doorstep. And Tenerife’s biggest waterpark, Siam Park, is only a 5-minute drive down the road.
The beach is close, too – its curved, golden sands are less than a 10-minute stroll from the hotel, and it’s popular with both families and the surfing crowd.
Back at the hotel, there’s a pool, sunloungers, and palm trees dotted around the edge, plus its own bar. A couple of floors up, an extra sunbathing terrace with a Jacuzzi® overlooks the pool. Plus, children get their own half-moon-shaped paddling zone.
The apartments are big and bright, come with a terrace or balcony, and have fully-furnished kitchens. There’s also a buffet restaurant, where the chefs grill steak to order and pack up lunch-time picnics for guests.
We have just returned from a super two week holiday. We stayed in a standard room which was more than ample. We rented fans from "the pub" just down the hill for 15 euros each for two weeks, I would recommend you do this. The food is fine, just dont be greedy and put everything on your plate the first night then you won't get fed up after 5th day. Staff in restaurant were really mannerable and very hard working. Pools are ok and animation team good fun. We had Siam Park with our booking so took the free bus up after lunch, the parks quieten down about 4 and saves you queuing for rides. All in all excellent value for money, my daughter (14) and son (11) really enjoyed it as did my husband and myself. We would definitely go back ðMore
Escaped to Siam Park daily
Updated rooms are ok-just like website pics. Balcony overlooked derelict Sky Park and pool 2-no complaints there. Food was more canteen than restaurant. Nothing had a name, just a basic picture of a chicken/pig/cow etc. But often it was wrong-how difficult can it be. After a couple of days we ate out at night and went to Siam Park during day (got ticket included in cost with package).
Drinks appeared watered down. Entertainment team tried their best. This property needs more than a basic lick of paint to bring it up to scratch-for us anyway.More

great value 3*
we were very surprised with our holiday which we went on from 07/10/14-16/10/14 , having read the mixed bag of reviews on here which i never normally do as i am a travel agent , we took the approach what will be will be. The room we had was a premium room and is exactly like the brochure - very modern spacious and really clean .The staff in hotel were really nice cant complain at all , some of the shows were really good at entertainment aswell and the food - well i am a really fussy eater and every day i ate no problem food was always cooked fine and enjoyable , really dont know what people are complaining about as most all inclusives are all similar and having stayed in 4 star hotels all inclusive last 3 years we enjoyed this accommodation far more than the others and not once saw a cockroach in the dining room .The only down fall but is common with 3 star properties was no air con we did hire a fan from reception .But all in all my family really enjoyed this accommodation and i would definitely go back and recommend to customers . The fact the accommodation is fully booked for January speaks volumes .More

Excellent value for money hotel
I stayed at playa olid with a friend in May. We went all inclusive. The appartment was amazing -very modern, roomy - large living area and kitchen , large bathroom and spacious twin bedded bedroom. Absolutely immaculate. Towels changed daily , washing up done and cleaned. Restaraunt served amazing choices off food - I have never eaten so much. Breakfast ranged from full English to continental. Lunch always fresh fish or meat grilled and numerous other hot dishes ( 16) plus a choice of salads, cold meats etc. Dinner was similar but always something different. The only slight negative was I don't drink spirits was limited on all inclusive drinks and the bar was quite busy/ short staffed. The staff were all extremely friendly and were amazing at keeping the restraunt clean at all times. The hotel is located in a quiet area about 15 walk from the beach where you can walk along the coast to other resorts. There are pubs in the local area. More
