The village-like Villa Mandi offers up great pools, good-sized apartments and a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.
The Villa Mandi is set in a quiet area of Los Cristianos. It’s peaceful, but not cut off – a 20-minute walk, or 5-minute cab ride, will put you in the town centre. It’s the same distance to the sandy beach, too.
Apartments here have been recently refurbished, and all include 32-inch LED TVs, kitchenettes and a balcony or terrace.

We stayed here for 14 nights hb from the end of November. Had such a lovely time, we had 3 apartments as there was 11 of us in our party ranging from 4 to 68 and we were all catered for but especially the children! Plenty activities on daily for everyone to stop them getting bored especially the children! Daniela the entertainment staff was brilliant and the kids loved her! The food was good, not massive amounts of choice but there was always something we liked and the restaurant and bar staff were amazing! So friendly and could never do enough for us! The maid was round our room pretty much daily so the rooms were always clean and they were lovely and spacious! Definetly felt like a 2nd home for us and we would love to go back! The evening entertainment could do with a little sprucing up but we went out of season so not sure if this is the case in peak season. It is a good trek into Los cristianos /las Americas but there is a free shuttle bus down there so I would make good use of that but we were quite happy at the site and it's only 4-5 euros for a taxi down so your not really cut off! Was a lovely holiday and I would go back in a flash ******More
Excellent family resort
The Villa Mandi is a really clean and friendly resort. I visited here with my wife and 11 month old baby. We upgraded to a select apartment which had great views over the pool and golf course. We also had a roof terrace and free newspaper each morning. Yes, the location is out of the way but we found it a pleasant walk into either Las Americas or Los Cristianos in the morning or early evening. We didn't eat here so can't comment on that but the shop was good for supplies and is about 10-15 mins walk to the nearest supermarket. Don't worry about the so called wasteland walk as it is just as quick to walk along the road. Actually the wasteland has very clean pathways and is perfectly safe although I wouldn't do the walk at night as there is no lighting and is pitch black. Overall I would recommend the Villa Mandi if you have young children or you like to walk during your holiday which we do. Try to book a select or pool view room as the road view is not the most pleasant.More

we stayed at villa mandi, as this was our first break without our kids, we went s/c ate out every night, steak house was very cheap, very nice, would definitely go back, but for longer, and hire a car, to get around but if you like walking this is ideal, would have like to see the volcano, but see it from the plane just the top, it is amazingMore

Great holiday but...
I have just returned from a 2 week stay with my partner an 18 month old son. On arriving at the hotel I was very disappointed that we had been given a terrace when I had specifically requested a balcony and even more so when I realised that our terrace didn't get any sun at any time of the day (room 105). However, after a couple of days I got over this and began to like the location of the apartment. We were situated across from the main park (which was very quiet until 10 days in when there were new arrivals who seemed to have no respect in terms of noise levels) and was close enough to walk backwards and forwards to the pool area. The pool area was great.. But the pools were FREEZING! The main pool wasn't too bad but the kids pool which was the only one our son wanted to go in as he could stand in it was seriously cold and didn't warm up at all throughout the day! His poor little lips would go blue he was so cold and he still didn't want to get out! I questioned the receptionist about this and he said that this pool and the main one were heated, I found this hard to believe so asked the thomson rep who informed me that none were heated due to hygiene reasons.. This brings me to the thomson rep who I seriously think needs to re think his career choice! We went down to the welcome meeting, sat there and waited whilst he did whatever on his iPad, gave up and left. His attitude when I questioned the pool was awful, fair enough thomson don't actually advertise the pools being heated but if you thoroughly read up on hotels like I do and visit the hotels official website you will believe that they have 2 heated, surely it's thomsons responsibility to make sure their hotels don't have false information on there websites? Moving on.. The apartments have everything you need and are modern and comfortable. The bedroom is separated from the living area by a sliding door which was rather transparent, bit of a pain when trying to get 18 month old to sleep and he can see the lights on.. So it may sound like I'm being really picky because frankly I am.. I did actually love this hotel and would go back! The location for us was perfect! As someone else has said if your going the right way then PLA is actually quicker to get to than LC.. We would walk up and down twice a day most days. PLA was our favourite, the newest part though, designer shops, Hard Rock Cafe! If you keep walking you reach the other side which is more of the party side which clearly we wouldn't be keen on with an 18 month old in tow! There was plenty of sun loungers,not being able to use them till 9am is a pain when you're early risers like us! But you could get a decent spot regardless of the time! The parks were great! A new big mercadona has recently opened and is only a 5 minute walk away from the hotel which was great, the onsite supermarket was good enough for whatever we forgot! The reception guy was extremely friendly and helpful! Unfortunately can't comment on thomsons UK entertainment team as it doesn't run in winter (we knew this before booking), however the Norwegian one was still running and the girls were all very friendly! A mini disco at 6.15 for the younger children with bouncer the teddy which our son loved! And another later one which we never went to! Various activities throughout the day with daniella (I hope I've remembered her mame correctly!) who again was very friendly and would try and engage everyone. Wifi is now free for 1 device too and I had great signal until the last 3 days when it was non existent! The launderette costs 5 euro for a wash and 4 for a dry.. Not bad but when it takes 3 goes to get them dry it is very expensive! Overall it is a great hotel, it was a perfect location for us, peaceful and we enjoyed the walks, we even walked back from the Aqua park one day which actually only took an hour with lots of stops to be nosy! Would definitely come back to the hotel again but unfortunately not if that meant having to go with thomsons!More
