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.

A warm, family friendly hotel
this is a brief review of our stay in a Apartments Villa Mandi, we booked through Thompson as a package deal, half board. Travelling was my wife, our 18 month old boy (toddler) and me. Firstly the transfer from Tenerife South airport is little over 20mins. We had a polite and swift check in, we where told that despite requesting for a low level room in a quite area, to Thompson, it was not possible and they offered us a room that was on the third floor directly above the pool, terrace area. Of which we didn't make a fuss as it was a spacious room to have. Location and Area Easy 15-20minute walk to either L Americas or L Christianos. I would suggest walk via Mercado and the Hospital paths to get to L Americas. The "wasteland" walk is quicker to get to L Christanos but not as aesthetically pleasing. People have said that the local supermarket is expensive but worth considering that a good 30% of product are imported to give guests a consistent supply of digestives, rich tea and cadburys.. There is always Mercado down the road if you wish. Take a quick walk up and around Montana Chayofita, little volcano directly between the hotel and the town of L Christianos gives you almost instant high level view point over both towns and only takes about a hour to march up and around. Entertainment We didn't get much chance to experience the entertainment but noticed that there was always something going on for the older children (4+) and Danielle, the hotels on site children's entertainer had a busy schedule.. Food The hotel put on a large international buffet every evening that was tailored to everyone appetite, children's food, vegetarian, salads and deserts where all to a high standard. Room and accommodation Our room was 325, one thing to consider is that the hotel is made up of terraces and levels a high proportion of rooms are only accessible by using stairs so would be well worth making this fundamental requirement if you need level access. The room itself was massive and the bed was huge. Being half board we found the kitchenette ample but I imagine it would be a little limited if you where relying on it for all meals. The bath wasn't the easiest to bath a toddler in as it part coveted by the sink base only leaving 2/3 of it accessible, we still that we survived. The rooms balcony faced to the pool and had furniture and a rail to dry towels. A real surprise was the roof terrace that gave us all day sun accessed by a spiral stair case on the balcony. With sun beds and parasol it was a great retreat when our boy was taking a siesta. Would take a wireless monitor next time as it was a little far to hear him if he woke. The room was 100% tilted and had a glass centred coffee table that our son almost caught him self on a few times. The hotel has 2 soft play areas and 2 outside play areas that where open and accessible all the time. The pools where great just our luck that the weather wasn't quite warm enough for our son to enjoy them to the max. Other points. People have said on TA that the hotel could do with a repaint and that there are cockroaches etc. I can say that the hotel takes these things seriously and we saw maintenance men performing renovations and painting whilst we where there. Also it is a big Self Catering apartment complex, making it cockroach free would be impossible considering as you are relying on guest hygiene and the guests covering food up.More

Good rooms and pool, but skip the food
Rooms are great and spacious. We had a one room apartment with a sofa bed for our daughter and that worked great. There is a small kitchen and we managed to do some quite nice meals there. We did test the restaurant for lunch and we're not impressed. We did never test the breakfast or dinner so I cannot review that. The hotel offers many activities for the kids and "Bamse" also has daily appearances for the kids. One thing we should have done was to ask for a room with sun on the terrace in the afternoon. We had sun from 330-5 and we could see others have sun to around 630 All in all a good hotel, with large rooms, and in an ok location approx 15 min walk from the beach More

Lets start with saying this hotel was made all the better due to the Thomson Family Club. Those guys put 100% in every day and made the holiday for my two boys (2 and 6 at the time). The rooms are large and we had a roof top terrace which if the pool would have been full would have been ideal for some sun lounging but when we went this was never an issue. The few days we stayed around the apartments and ate there, options are very limited and everything is overpriced. The apartments are out in the sticks so there isnt much competition around to encourage them to lower prices. Don't let this put you off however, there is a shuttle bus into Los Christianos or Playa De Las Americas. After our first few days we decided we would sit around the pool until around 4pm. We would then have a walk into the main resort centre which takes around 15 minutes. The scenery is not fantastic on the walk, baron lands and graffiti but it is safe enough. we would then have a stroll along the beach and find somewhere nice to eat before returning to the apartments (via taxi) for the kids disco around 9.30. We could then all relax and the kids enjoyed themselves with the fantastic entertainment staff. We all enjoyed our holiday and met some good friends, some of them reps and would have no hesitations in going back to the Villa Mandi if the price was right.More

Nice hotel, good rooms
We stayed here in August for a family holiday. 2 adults and 1 child aged 12. We had a good time, the rooms were very clean and the pool was too. The supermarket on the hotel site was well stocked but a little bit expensive. People on here moan about the prices but to be fair it's worth paying the extra bit just do you don't have to walk to the town to get a few bits and pieces. To get to the town we used to have a walk down on a night which took about 20 mins, steady stroll. We used to get a taxi back which was normally about â¬7.00. We would definitely stay here again if we were to come back to Los cristianos. We stayed self catering as we like to please ourselves when and what we eat so I can't comment on the food. More
