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. This hotel will no longer be a Family Resort from May 2016. But don’t worry, it’ll still offer family-friendly holidays with Thomson Kids’ Clubs.

The pool area was very clean, and was good they did not let people put towels down prior to 9am (they were removed if you tried). Rooms were spacious and clean. The entertainment was mainly catered for young children, they had 3 pool tables taking 2x1Euros, but the bar staff were very limited in how many they had and one night had none at all so we couldn't play pool or air hockey at all!!! So this made the nights a little longer after returning from town, they need a change machine or a large supply of 1 Euros. We had booked bed and breakfast which was needed as you couldn't walk into town every morning just to get a breakfast, it was ok but always the same very bland. The lunch and evening food was horrible, we ordered a lunch on 1 day and nothing was enjoyable, so only ever ordered chips or went without until our meal in town that night. we only ate an evening meal here once and it was very basic, was barely warm and very tasteless, so never ate here again. It is a good 20/30 mins walk to town but taxis were usually around 5/6 euros. The pool area was not large enough for the amount of rooms, luckily there was only 1 day when we wouldn't have been able to get loungers after 9.15 when the mad dash to get sunbeds had finished, but luckily we were going to Siam park anyway, (even though some people were putting towels on sunbeds at 9am, and not even using them until after 2/3pm later in the day this happened on quite a few occasions towards the end of our holiday as it was becoming busier. Siam park was the best day of our holiday just not much seating near the rides so if you are waiting for someone to go on a ride you could have a 30 min plus wait with no where to sit, but that is the only downside of the whole park. We would not book to go to the Villa Mandi again as it really was not what we want. But a family with young children will like the enterainment.More

Not what we were expecting.
We ( my partner, myself and our 4 children aged 9 to 16) have just returned from the villa mandi. Having read the reviews we thought this place was going to be amazing. The key points the hotel need to seriously review is...1) the pool is way too small for the amount of visitors this place attracts. 2) no way near enough parasols in the blistering heat!!! 3) the entertainment is obviously low budget and nothing for older children at all. 4) facilities were basic and not particularly clean 5) self catering was incredibly basic...cups, plates, cutlery, kettle and toaster.....you could not make a meal in this place. 6) bedding was not changed once and it was infested with ants, and bed bugs!!!!!!!!! As well as cockroaches around the bins!!!!! Yuck.!!!!!!! :-(. 7) It was quite far out so expect to pay about Â£10 a night in taxi fares. 8) the food in the so called resurant was disgusting, over priced and totally disappointing. All in all we will never go back!!More

A Great Holiday
We have just returned from a great holiday at the Villa Mandi. We travelled with our 3 year old and our 7 month baby . The complex was very clean and our apartment spacious and very nice. The pool area was lovely and there were lots of activities for both children and adults. Our 3 year old loved the kid's club and I would highly recommend the crÃ¨che facility as well. All of the Thomson staff were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. We had a problem the last few days of our holiday with cockroaches in our apartment but the staff did try to rectify the problem quickly. There are lots of lovely restaurants in Los Cristianos, Costa Adeje and Las Americas. You can get a taxi to Americas or Los Cristianos for about five euros as it is a bit of a walk . All in all a great holiday and I would definitely recommend the Villa Mandi. More

DO NOT BOOK THIS DESTINATION
Dreadful holiday, mould on food in restaurant, filthy accommodation, excreiment on cot mattress When we complained to manageress she said leave if you don't like it.Situated in the middle of nowhere so you have to keep spending out on taxis. We saw cockroaches near restaurant and a mouse going under an apartment door. All family accommodation is up at least 2 flights of stairs. Do not consider booking here. Rep tried his best and was helpful but Spanish management were dreadfulMore

We stayed here a little while ago - my second holiday abroad. We stayed self catering booking through Thomson. The apartment was basic but clean and had all we needed for our stay.the ground floor apartment had a little private terrace which was pleasant enough to use in the evening/early morning. The resort staff were all pleasant and we spent only one evening Chatting to the 'reps' who were very friendly. The pool was ample for the number of guests, and we got a lounger quite easily before 11am each day. Parasols were a little more difficult to obtain, but negotiating with other guests wasn't too much of a problem! The walk into the main town was 15/20mins maybe a little shorter once we'd found a few short cuts. We never ate on site as we prefer to go and 'explore'. This was a budget type holiday for us and was definitely value for money. It is very family orientated and I wouldn't hesitate to go back now with our new young family for the right price. The local area isn't exactly teaming with culture, but you are pretty much guaranteed a holiday with good weather and plenty of 'British-ness', if that's what you're after. As with most hotels/complexes, supplies are cheaper if you venture to the local supermarket instead of shopping on site. There are some great Canadian restaurants if you venture down to the sea front/ harbour and playa de las Americas is a great evening stroll away. I believe Los Cristianos is what YOU make of it :-)More
