1-bedroom apartments have tiled flooring and are decorated with natural tones accented by bright colours. They sleep up to four adults and one child with a double or twin beds, two extra beds and a child's bed in the lounge. The kitchenette has a fridge, small freezer, two electric rings, kettle and microwave, while the bathroom comes with a hydro-massage bath with an overhead shower.
On arrival we thought it was lovely with a fantastic view.
We went all inclusive as we read the reviews on trip advisor.
Breakfast was really good, lunch and evening meals really poor so ate out most evenings and the walk down the hill only took 20 mins and we got a taxi back.
Eating in the evenings was like sitting in a green house, you could eat outside by the pool but the pool was still open and people were eating and then jumping in the pool.
Photo of our bed - Sheets didn't fit bed and No mattress protection.
Photo of under our bed, lots of hair and very dirty.
Photo of our balcony after we had asked them to clean it! I don't call that clean.
Don't stay in the 3 bedroom apartments as there is no air conditioning so you have to sleep with windows and doors open but sometime the noise from the pool with people drinking went on to 3am singing and jumping into the pool.
I would not go back.
Not as good as people say
At fires when we arrived to hotel seemed very nice closed up area there was shops and restaurant. when we get to the room it looked clean and had balcony view to the ocean. when i get to bedroom the first thing i sow was stains on blanket wasn't very big but easily noticeable, haven't noticed any spiders but for sure there was spider webs on ceiling corner near the bed. so when i was ready to go to bed i pull the sheet of the bed and what i sow was the biggest cockroach i seen in my life similar to ones you see on TV. The next day of my stay room service came in i was hoping she will clean the room properly but the only thing she did was sweep the floor, take the trash out and too ashtray but didn't put it back so i had to use the plate :D. The rest days of my stay was fine apart from cockroach now in bathroom, and the last day when it was few hours left till the bus i was making breakfast and room service came in to tell me to pack my stuff and leave the room immediately without any notice this really annoyed me. I had to wait near hotel for 2 hours in the heat. couldn't really go anywhere also because bus would come near hotel and hotel is on the hill everything else is near the beachMore

The Good , The Bad and The Ugly
Starting with the good...the pool is lovely , the views great , the apartments modern and comfortable.
We went self catering and felt misled by the advertising , there was no pool side bar or snacks unless you purchased a full meal voucher for 15 euros and could only have what was on offer . We did buy one and were not allowed to eat outside ! No wonder the place is going total self catering next year. The staff will have to learn how to treat customers as they should be treated. We were dropped off by the transfer at the bottom of the hill to the complex , then given a lift by the hotel , on departure we had to make our own way down and wait by the roadside with no shade, seems like the party was over once they got you in the place.
The place was clean and suited our purpose , but the service was rubbish and if you are used to getting snacks or drinks , dont bother , staff only care about the all inclusive guests.
On a possitive note , go to Puerto Colon and eat at the Marina Bar , fantastic food , great service.More

Great views, great staff, great holiday
- Great views
- Spacious rooms
- Excellent staff (receptionist Laura was fantastic)
- No oven (there was a microwave and a hob, but no oven)
- Firm beds (not for my liking but that is a personal preference)
- Hilly (within the resort - we knew we were on too if a hill but didn't realise the walk to the on site supermarket was quite hilly, not a massive negative either but I've seen others complain about it so just pointing it out)
Would I return...yes!
We had a really relaxing week at the hotel.
Never had any issues getting any sunbeds, sometimes we had to settle for the less desirable spots (ie not looking at the amazing view but you can't have it all). The "lifeguard" spent his days cleaning the sunbeds and the rest of the pool area so that was always in a nice clean condition.
The views are awesome up here, yes you are at the top of the hill and I would recommend getting a taxi back up. The cheapest taxi we had was â¬3.15 when we walked to the bottom of the hill before flagging a taxi, and the most we paid was around â¬8 for a taxi back from Americas (after 10pm, they add on â¬1.70 as a late charge). We always walked down or jumped on the hotel bus, this was a good reliable service running 5 times a day. It runs twice in the morning and 3 times in the evening but you must book at reception. Again we had no trouble booking into this.
We were self-catering so cannot comment on the food. We ate out a local restaurant (2 mins down the hill from hotel) called Barracuda. I found this in trip advisor and it was number 6 of 200+ in Costa Adeji. We booked in for 8pm to watch the sunset and eat some nice food. The steak was very nice and reasonably priced at â¬15. We went for starters and had a few drinks and it came to about â¬70. Well worth it for the meal and setting.
We did a few excursions, the Royal Delfin 2 hour tour cost â¬22 each and we saw pilot whales. We got really close and it was good to see them in their own habitat. The coach picked us up from our hotel at 10am before sailing at 10:30 until 12:30. Well worth it to see the whales and get out on the sea.
We also wanted some adrenaline so booked onto the boat Radikal. This is a 20 minute high speed boat that can do 360's and nose dives and you do get wet! We loved it. Highly recommended and different to jet-skis. â¬30 each it isn't cheap but well worth it if you haven't done this before. They do also take a few pics as you board etc and they are available for â¬10. You get one photo printed and the rest emailed to you (around 10 pics).
Siam park. Well I think this has potential to be good. I'd heard great things but felt slightly let down by the endless hours queuing. It starts outside. We had our tickets already but it still took us 50 minutes to get in after arriving at 10am when the park opens. We didn't buy any fast passes and maybe that was the issue. We payed â¬34 each to get into the park (food and drink is not allowed to be taken into the park) so we had money for lunch which cost â¬25 for hamburger, chips and a drink and chicken chips and a drink. Plus â¬4 euros for 2 bottles of water (500ml). The fast pass is â¬14 each and you just get either a morning pass or afternoon pass. The rides were great when we got on them, but the time spent queuing with little shade or water took it's toll. From the 30 minute marker for the new Singha ride we waited over 2 hours. It was hot (good thing yes, but maybe too hot with no water and little shade). The ride was good but short given the 2 hour wait. We made it on 3 rides/slides plus the lazy river (with rapids). To make the most of it I think a fast pass may be worth it but it adds to the cost and without testing the queues myself I would just hope the "fast pass" lives up to it's name. The catch with it is you only get to queue jump once per ride/slide. I'd look at the all-in option, think it was around â¬99 each but may have included unlimited fast pass, lunch too. Potentially a good day, glad I went but did spend too long queueing, good job I had good company! The wave pool is something else. Amazing!
The hotel itself served our purpose. We could eat breakfast (mainly eggs and toast). We could snack (chocolate croissants). And we could make sandwiches for lunch. The hotel was fairly quiet, the noise coming from the kids running around and enjoying their holiday. Clean and modern rooms were extremely spacious. Air con was in the room as was a television. Both remotes require a deposit at reception however both are operable via the actual device. The signal for UK TV channels become poor by the end of the week but didn't really want to watch TV on holiday anyway. Would I tell people to stay here, yes. The views etc are worth paying the taxi fare for. Hope this helps. Enjoy!More
Fantastic two weeks here. The staff are great and very helpful. The room we had 116 was in a great location. The room was cleaned everyday and fresh towels every time the room was serviced. All inclusive package we used was great, but we didn't really use the it to its full potential as its so cheap to eat on the island.
The shuttle bus is worth booking for evening meals in sister hotel and then your in the heart of the town, only â¬8/9 back up the hill so well worth usingð
A nice walk down the hill over into town only takes 15/20min great hotel and has everything you need for the perfect holiday ðµðððð´More
