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.
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.

1) We went to the villa mandi on recommendation from a friend who has been before. We was very disappointed due to the fact this was my husbands 1st holiday away so went self catering. This place is not suitable for self catering villa mandi advertise a kitchen it's 2 electric rings with no temperature and a microwave.
We arrived around 20:00pm. On arrival we had to use our light on our phone to find our room as the lights wasn't working. Once in our room we noticed that we had 2 double beds and the patio door wouldn't open. We went straight to reception to inform them he told us the room we had was right so I said u r telling me my son of 15years11months has to share a bed with his sister 11years 11months that ain't right he said well it is and wasn't interested and sent us on our way. taking this up with Thompson.
2) Very stricked about putting towels on the sun beds b4 9am felt like being told of by my parents.
3) pools are very small not enough room if the apartments are full also for approx hour a day they play water polo anyone under the age of 16 get squashed up one end. same applies to the umbrellas u get 1 umbrella per 5 if u are lucky to get 1 at all.
4) the club house is more like a dungeon chairs all broke very dark can't see the stage to watch the very low budget shows.
5) nothing for kids at the age 11-15 to do my daughter was to old for find a bone and to young for water polo No mini golf like villa mandi are still advertising has been demolished games room very small machines not always switched on.
Basically I wouldn't be going back overpriced camping trip.
Goods points the grounds are very nice and well kept.
Family friendly destination
Ideal for a family holiday. The apartments are large and clean, each with their own outdoor space. The staff were friendly and really hard working, they made a fuss of the kids. The swimming pool was great, although it could be a bit difficult to find a sun lounger and especially an umbrella. Reception staff helped me out with a sick child, including phoning their own family to get advice on antibiotics.More
Beautiful place to stay
Had a wonderful time here! The pools are great!! The self catering room was adequate, clean with a lovely veranda where we ate breakfast every morning and had a wee tipple every night. The staff were always helpful and friendly. Customer service top class!! We booked through Thomson and the entertainment was very good. Our 3 year old very much enjoyed her time here. Booked a day trip out through Thomson and didn't have to worry about a thing, they had it all sorted! We would most definitely go back!More

fantastic time at villa mandi
Just returned after two weeks at villa mandi and had a brilliant time ,we had room 130 and was right on the poolside near the bar and restaurant , well equipped kitchen for being self catering but not much storage space for 4 adults (3 coat hangers each )
Rooms clean and spacious ,beds comfy but sheets don't fit the mattress and came off with every move .
The biggest shout out goes to the entertainment team , Mad Brad , Random Adam , Jessie J and Super Duper Dawn who all gave 110% ,with endless energy to keep everybody entertained with games , quizzes and night time shows
Keep it up guys your a credit to the company and wish you all the very bestMore

Villa Mandi August 2015
Villa Mandi is a great complex of excellent sized apartments. The swimming pool is perfect for adults and children alike. The addition of astroturf around the pool surround makes it more comfortable on the feet and far safer for the kids.
Service in the hotel was excellent. Although I was slightly disappointed with the restaurant. We only ate in their once as we were self catering. The food looked a little bland and boring.
Thomson did a great job of providing family entertainment which all the kids clearly enjoyed. My previous experiences with Thomson Family Resorts were excellent and this didn't disappoint.
The location is somewhat out of the way however the walk to the supermarket, beach and restaurants was not too difficult (15-20 mins) or a cab could have been caught for 5 euros.
Best place we found was 'The Loft' which was at the new supermarket complex. Good food and good drinks and a kids play area.
We hired a car and visited Los Gigantes, Playa De Arena, Loro Parque and of course Teidi. Teidi was an anti climax unfortunately, having queued for 3.5 hours in the heat! A shame no-one told us that it would be such a massive wait. Also good tip - If you hire a car and plan to go to Teidi parking is a nightmare!
We also went on a jet ski safari and parasending. Brilliant fun.
Tenerife is a nice island, probably wont return as there are so many more places to visit in the world, but glad i went. We all loved our two weeks in the sun!More
