Beautiful location, great views but 2 things to note.... Unless you are prepared to go and stand next to the chained up sunbeds at 0830 in the morning and wait for them to be unlocked at 0930 with the rest of tge masses, you won't get one, never mind in any sort of place that suits. Also, if you are in one of the apartments below the sun terrace be prepared for the terrible noise of sunbeds being dragged across it twice a day as they are put in place by the hordes and then collected and chained up again by the management at about 1730. Costa Adeje is a lovely place and would definitely come back but, would have to think twice about coming here again!More
Interesting 3 bed House/Apartment
Maybe I am being a hotel snob, whilst in my eyes this wasnt the greatest in catering for families, there is nothing wrong with this hotel. Yes it is on a hill with poor transport, you do need a car or a taxi all the time, but surely if you are reading all the reviews beforehand you would know this. We stayed here for 12 nights in July. When we arrived and checked in Reception was busy but the lady was very helpful. She explained regarding the €20 deposit for the TV and breakfast, dinner costs. Upon driving to the 3 driving to the accommodation, we couldnt get in.. the keys they had given us were the incorrect ones, so we went back to reception to change them over...you may ask why is this a problem, I'll get to it shortly. Once armed with the correct keys we unloaded and walked in, the windows on the ground floor are covered by external shutters, however, the windows dont lock ! Yes they just slide close but do not lock, so you must make sure that you have locked the shutters at all times. A 3 bed sleeping 6 should have adqueate crockery and cutlery to reflect this, but no we didnt have any of that, we had 3 of everything (four of us went) we ended up going to a local supermarket and buying containers and glasses to use during the stay. We had arrived at 10pm Saturday evening, and lucky we always have a car so we were able to head out of the resort and get something to eat, be prepared if you are arriving late as there are no facilities after 9 to get food in the vicinity. On the Monday we realised that the towels were not being replaced, we thought maybe it was every other day rather than every day, so we went to reception who told us that if we want the apartment cleaned we need to leave our keys as there are no spares or masters available for our apartment, we have the only set ??! Slightly worrying. In the evenings as most people have mentioned, there is nothing to do, I mean nothing, whilst its not a problem as you can buy some alcohol from the supermarket and look out over the beautful views in the evenings, you will need to buy some glasses to drink from too. The meals work out really expensive so I was happy to go to the supermarket and then cook meals every evening, but the kitchens are really really ill equipped. You only get one large saucepan and one frying pan - no bowls or colanders etc. You only have an induction cooker, no oven facility either. The guests are a mix of families and single sex groups. The Wifi is really patchy, some days it would work and somedays it wouldnt - just be prepared. In the 3 bed there is only one shower which is tiny, my 9 year old found it really claustraphobic in there. Overall I wouldnt say that this hotel is anything to shout about, but if you are looking for a break where you are out most of the day and need somewhere to rest your head then this hotel is fine, however the beds and sofas are appalling, they are not comfortable at all.More

Decent hotel but wouldn't stay again...
My boyfriend and I recently just returned from Tenerife last week and we stayed in the panoramic heights complex! Like most places this hotel/ apartment complex had upsides and downsides but I just thought it would be best to give anyone who may be thinking of staying here some insight into what it's like... To begin with the hotel is at the top of a very, very steep hill so transport, wether you bring your own or get taxis is a must! Though that being said the location of the hotel does give for amazing views right down to the ocean! So I'll start with the facilities: the hotel does provide a lot of facilities such as a small supermarket, spa, gift shop, hairdressers, restaurant, pool bar and pool however the pool isn't as big as it looks in photos and was often very crowded. As the hotel is set on a hill it means a lot of stairs are involved. We were in one of the very bottom suites which meant 4 flights of stairs and 4 sets of long ramps to get to reception! Secondly customer service: On our first day our key card to the room stopped working and when I went to the hotel staff about this they weren't very helpful but eventually got it fixed. Still the card stopped working a further 3 times while we were there (which meant trekking up and down the before mentioned flights of stairs and Ramps many times). We also weren't provided with a "do not disturb" sign for our door, I would recommend asking the hotel staff for one unless you would like to be woken up between 8-12 by maids ringing the door bell many times! As I said it is a must for taxis as the hotel is at the very top of the hill, a few days we walked down which took about 20-25 mins to get to adeje but we didn't think there was much around the promenade to see so it does take a taxi into las Americas ( preferably Mediterranean place) for better shopping and dining experiences which is around 10-14 Euro each way More
High in the mountains! P,S Reserve your sun lounger before you fly!
Before I book any accommodation I always look at lots of different reviews. There are people that will always look for faults in places and people that are very easily pleased so I try to read between the lines. 9/10 I get it right. This review on our stay at Aparthotel Panorámica or as its better known locally Panorámica Heights will hopefully help anyone looking for a bit more accurate detail than what is on the official sites. The good stuff: • Check in is quick and we were allowed check in slightly earlier than the 2pm time. • It’s close to Tenerife South Airport. Approximately 20 minutes in a taxi (25 Euro). • The complex is very clean (pools, reception, general area) • The three bed apartments are a nice size and have a good layout. Easily fit 6 people. • The pool is good for kids, its warm and not too deep. • There is a nice spa there which is only 10 euro a person to use. • There is a supermarket on site and its well stocked and the prices are reasonable. • Being located in the mountains the views are nice and unrestricted. The bad stuff: • Our three bed room apartment had NO air con despite being advertised as having some. When we went to reception to raise this issue we were told that none of the three bedroom apartments had air con. We were told we could either leave all the windows and doors open or rent a fan or an air con machine (that would do one room) for 60 euro. We offered to downgrade to a smaller room with air con but were told this wasn’t possible. It is the height of summer in Tenerife so sleeping was impossible. Lying in a pool of your own sweat every night is not what anyone should experience on holidays. What’s worse is that it caused our two young kids (9 & 11) to get prickly heat. If you have ever been unfortunate to get this you will know that it’s a very sore rash that stops you from enjoying your holiday. Your clothes irritate it when you walk, you can’t get into the pools or sea and sand is a definite no. • A lot is mentioned in the reviews about the views. Yes they are nice but when you are at the top of a mountain that’s what you would expect. We knew this location was up a bit from the beaches etc but had no idea of how steep the access would be to the hotel. Some reviews say that its only 20-25 minutes’ walk down to the beach. I am 40 and train every day of the week and not only does it take more than 20 minutes, the hills are so steep that by the time you get even near the beaches you are exhausted. Kids of any age or anyone with mobility issues would not be able to do this. The walk back would take twice as long as the hills are some of the steepest I have ever seen. Some more than 45 degrees. The taxis even struggled to make it up them. • The location also means that walking or even cycling (except for professional cyclists) is impossible. You need to get taxis everywhere. The good news is that there are loads of taxis and plenty of seven seaters , the bad news is that most will try to rob you. We got in excess of 20 taxis and never once was the fare the same. While they are much cheaper than in Dublin no one likes to know they are getting conned. One of the decent taxi men we got told us that we should never be paying more than 4 or 5 euro for our trips. His was 3.75 on the day. Later that day another driver wanted 10 euro for the same trip. When I asked for a receipt he then changed the fare to 6 Euro. It doesn’t seem like much but when you are getting so many taxis it all adds up. The most common trick was to add the Airport charge to each trip even though we were not going there. • While the whole place is nice and clean, we had to basically beg the cleaning ladies to do our rooms. They would often say they would call in later in the day but never did. In total some of our rooms were cleaned twice in seven days. Getting clean towels was just as bad. • The beds were the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on. I use to think I could sleep anywhere but 4 of the six beds we impossible to sleep on. They were like camper beds only much more uncomfortable. You could feel every spring in them. The double bed in the main room was also the smallest double bed I have ever used. When you add uncomfortable beds to rooms with no air con its impossible to get a decent night’s sleep. • At the pool there is a sign saying that it is not permitted to reserve the sun loungers. By 8am every morning people had their towels on every single bed at the pool. There wasn’t a single person actually in or around the pools at that time though. Some beds would stay empty for the whole day with just towels on them! The hotel staff should enforce the rule of no reserving beds more. • The pool area including the pool bar is only opened until 6pm! With its isolated location and no nightly entertainment that leaves very little to do at the complex. • The bar beside the pool has a limited selection and is more expensive than bars along the beach front. • There is little or no atmosphere at the complex. There is no ‘fun’ element. • There is a GYM at the complex but when I went to use it I was told that it will never be opened? Not now or in the near future. • The supermarket is good but it’s a few levels down from reception and even more from the three room apartments so walking back with shopping is a challenge. • Deposits are required for everything, TV remotes, keys etc. One of the days my wife went to reception to rent the table tennis rackets. It was 5 Euro for the rackets and they also wanted 3 Euro for a deposit? As she had come from the pool she only had a few Euro on her and was short one Euro for the deposit. It meant that she would have had to track all the way back up the hills in her swimwear and back just for one Euro! Rather than just take our room number the receptionist refused to give out the rackets! Oh, I almost forgot bout the Wifi. You have to constantly sign in and its basically non existent no matter where you go in the complex. I personally wouldn’t recommend this complex to anyone other than those who like to hire a car and travel around the island a bit.More
