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.

Access to Siam Park included from May 2017
Siam Park brings a touch of Thailand with added thrills and spills. Big-hitters like the Tower of Power and The Dragon keep the screams coming, while the Mhai Tai River and the huge wave pool are great for all the family. Kids get the Lost City - a fortress teeming with bridges, waterfalls, tipping buckets and 9 slides suited to youngsters.
Siam Park is off-site, but there's a free shuttle bus to the park. Just so you know, some of the slides are too big for little ones. Three attractions have a minimum height of 110cm, five attractions have a minimum height of 125cm and one has a minimum height of 140cm and minimum age of 14 years. Check out Siam Park's website for more info.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant alternates between a buffet and waiter service meals for lunch and dinner. Don't miss the occasional theme nights. There are no pre-assigned tables or sittings. You are asked to dress adequately, and won't be allowed in barefoot or without a shirt. Gluten-free diets cannot be catered for. Restaurant may be buffet or waiter service according to occupancy levels. Summer opening times for dinner are 18.30-21.30.

Better than expected
My wife and I arrived around 8.30p.m. on Monday,6 February, having travelled for seven hours or so. Reception was welcoming and informative but our first 'taste' of food at the Villa Mandi was disappointing , to say the least. The variety was limited, lukewarm and distinctly unappetising. We ate very little and worried about future meals, being here on a half-board basis. Nevertheless, we were shown to our room on the first floor and were very pleased to see a large living room, adequate kitchen facilities and a good-sized bedroom. Our first night, as other nights, was spent in a quiet environment and we were much more happily disposed than on our arrival. Breakfasts were catering for all nationalities and the food was hot, providing you arrived at 8.00a.m. The evening meals, similarly, improved once we realised that getting there at opening time ensured a good choice of hot food. Now that we felt more at ease, we realised that this location really suited us! The walk into Los Cristianos took 35 minutes, admittedly over some rough ground but well worth doing, while the 25 minute downhill walk into Los Americas was much better. The views of the sea encouraged us to make these walks every day and, in the warm sunshine, they were well worth doing. For those unable or unwilling to walk far, there is a free bus service outside the hotel at 10.30 a.m. and 11.30a.m. with a return journey from the beach at 5.30p.m. Adults with children will feel pleased to know that , if they so wish, there is no need to leave the hotel. Everything they need for a relaxing break is there. For us without children, there were plenty of quiet areas around the complex. On our return to the hotel after our walks, there were plenty of available sun loungers and two good-sized pools, one of which was heated. We enjoyed our afternoons reading and swimming! The room was regularly cleaned and the staff were very hard working. Despite some critical comments of some reviewers, we found the place welcoming and well-deserving of a second visit.More
I stayed in a 1 bed apartment with my sister and brother in law . Very clean and spacious altho the sofa bed wasn't the most comfortable . Facility's both in apartment and grounds were good altho drinks and foods were above average price for the area . I would be happy to holiday here again but perhaps in a 2 bed apartment . A little way out of resort ( approx 20 mins walk) but as a result quiet . We had a lovely apartment with both a balcony and a roof terrace . Kitchen was adequate and lounge had enough seating and a television . Plenty of wardrobe space and comfortable twin beds in bedroomMore

Beautiful from the outside, spacious rooms
Our family stayed in Villa Mandi for one week in November. We had a nice stay in Tenerife and we also enjoyed the hotel. Villa Mandi is has a beautiful property from the outside. From inside the rooms are extremely basic, but also spacious. Rooms have fridge, microwave and oven. Also a small shop in hotel area helps if you want to cook your own food. Hotel restaurant has vast variety of different dishes. The food itself is pretty average. Pool area (actually two of them) is nice and clean. There's also enough of arranged poolside activities. Bamse bear is especially nice for younger children (our 2 years old went absolutely crazy over the bear). Hotel is located in a quite and peaceful area, next to golf course (although the club house and the start of the course is probably pretty far away). So it's suitable for families and elderly who don't care for action. For us however the location was too far away from everything. Sure we managed to walk to Los Christianos and to Playa de Las Americas but it took approx. 20min one way. Shuttle buses ARE NOT convenient (only one or two buses during the day). Overall Villa Mandi granted us a pleasant stay in Tenerife. Los Christianos and Playa de Las Americas are both great places to visit. Next time we would probably stay closer to those towns.More
Third Visit.....and maybe a fourth.
My Wife and i have just returned from a week long stay at the Villa Mandi , this is our third visit and as always in January to escape the cold weather in London for some Winter Sun. It was a little cloudier than usual but this didn't stop us from using both pools and relaxing by them on most days. Our first evening we decided to eat at the Taste Bar next to the restaurant, Why is this so under used when it looks so nice. We understood why when we asked for three dishes we were given the cold shoulder by one of the waiters/bar staff and shouted at when we asked if we could sit at the bar and eat it. We are in Spain eating Tapas isn't that what you do. He needs to change his abrupt attitude and when you go all inclusive he will be having to deal with food orders 24/7 not just three small Tapas dishes. But with that said we enjoyed our stay as the holiday is what you make it. Ours was to relax and seek out new restaurants as well as our own cooking. We stayed in apartment 145 , we had this one on our first stay and found it a lovely room with a large patio, garden and pool view, albeit the couple with child above getting up so early and moving furniture around!!! it would have been perfect. The maids work so hard and cleaned our room everyday and always friendly as well as all the reception staff. We would come back but not to use the All Inclusive.... this we feel will be the Downfall for Villa Mandi.More

Really enjoyed our stay in villa Mandi apartment was very spacious, clean and room was cleaned daily. There's 2 children's play areas and a play room. 4 pools 2 of the pools are heated (a big pool and a kids pool) there's a supermarket on site too but mercadona is just 5 minutes down the road which has everything you need at great prices and another great park for kids outside and a nice cocktail bar while they play :-). This hotel is quite high up so if you don't mind a walk it's ok but wouldn't recommend if you like to be near the beach.More
