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.
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.
Available from May 2017. Designed for 3 to 11-year-olds, our Kids’ Clubs by Family Life offer daytime activities, five times a week. To ensure all activities suit your little and not-so-little ones, we’ve split the Clubs into age groups and tailored the activities for each. Just like in our Family Life resorts, there’s Bamse Club for 3 to 5-year-olds and @611 Club for 6 to 11-year olds, so you and your kids get a taste of the full experience. For your peace of mind, all of our Kids’ Club team are trained to UK standards by TUI, and have undergone relevant checks.

My accommodation here was fairly basic, but I was delighted with the private roof terrace with two sun loungers. Not all rooms have this, so if it's important to you, request in advance.
The pool area is busy with families, so I was grateful for the privacy of my own terrace.
The price was good. I expect I would have paid more for a location nearer the beach and the nightlife, but it's a walk or short taxi ride to either Los Cristianos or Las Americas.More
We got moved here when the pool in our hotel was having maintenance on it. The hotel is nice. we got put on ground floor next to kids play area. The pool was very nice but the man who worked in the restaurant and the bar was very rude. The food you can pay 10euros for the buffet which is not very nice at all. Much rather walk to eat out. The room was clean and tidy had loads of wardrobe space, bath shower, hairdryer and cutlery. I personally wouldn't come here again as it's a bit of a walk to the beach. More
what a delightful complex. we went self catering and were delighted with our apartment. it was very spacious, kitchen was basic and you would have trouble making a full meal with it but as we only had breaky there it was ideal. the living room was nice and big wit a comfy couch/ pull out bed. we had air con in the livingroom and bedroom which was a big help. amazing bathroom with a sink each (very handy wish I had one at home) the beds were te comfiest ive ever had away from home & slept like a log most nights. our room was near the kids play area and as there weren't many kids there at the time it was great. pools were just the right size although they do get busy. didn't have a meal there but it looked good. don't let the rubble trek to the towns and beachs put you off but I wouldn't advise walking back at night due to no lighting. one thing that confused me was they ask you to put dirty towels in a basket so they can save on washing & help the environment, we kept our towels to help but everyday we ended up with fresh ones.
I would recommend restaurant: la mar, on the coast walk in playa del Americas.
chill out near the tunnel from los christianos.
follow the coast walk to a little cocktail shack on the beach, they really do serve the best mojitos.
any questions I'm happy to answer them all so please ask.More
Going the wrong direction
Stayed here previously and obviously was impressed because we've returned for a 3rd time!
This will be our last stay here as the place has lost Its way. Food is like a school canteen (a poor one at that) place is dated and this stay we've had building g work outside our room near constantly (hacking up floor tiles with jack hammer).
A lot of the good staff have left and Thompson's appear to have abandoned it since downgrading it this year.
Sad example of good resort gone bad. Not a lot more to say especially with a headache from the jsck-hammers....More
Please ignore the bad reviews!
We came here in May 2016, The apartments are AMAZING, beautifully decorated, secure, clean and spacious, the staff are very friendly and the facilities are great, the onsite supermarket is fairly priced and well stocked, we couldn't recommend enough!More
