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.

We have just returned from a 11 night stay at the Villa Mandi in Tenrife. What a fantastic holiday. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was so spacious and very clean and safe. The cleaners came in most days to empty the bins and clean the bathrooms etc. The beds were changed a couple of times during our stay and were always made for us if we didn't get round to it! The hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly. My 2 boys loved the pool (there were 2, but they only played in the main pool) and were in it every day. The pool entertainment was fantastic and visits from Thomson Dog during the day for the kids. The kids joined kids Club and went most days giving us a break to laze in the sun. The kids entertainers were brilliant and put on so much entertainment, the boys loved it. They did a spy session where the kids had to spy on the reps, a chocolate party, a sweet party, army boot camp - they had a brilliant time. The hotel is only about a 10 - 15 minute walk away from Los Cristianos where we found a lovely restaurant called the Miramar. The waiters were very friendly and my kids became quite attached to them. All in all I rate our holiday 10/10 and will definitely be going back.More
Relaxing break - good location
The self proclaimed 5 star did not really live up to 5 star standard. Dont get me wrong the reception staff were very friendly and the outside of the hotel looked good. So lets start with a few things. 1. location for me, the location was pretty good, it was away from all the hassle and noise you expect in a resort centre. It was around 20min walk to los cristianos and around 30min walk to las americas. There is an option to cut through some waste ground but we didnt see the need. The paths were in good condition and well lit at night. Taxis were between 5 -7 euros to each location and were available just a minutes walk to the left of the hotel or book from the desk for 1 euro. 2. Facilities Reception was friendly and very clean Pool area was well maintained and we didn't suffer from getting sunbeds anytime of the day. The outside toilets could do with a bit of work tho. The main activity pool could be a bit bigger for the size of the hotel. There are many activities planned around the pool that you can join in if you like, there is no pressure. The quiet pull is smaller but seemed popular. 3. Rooms It is difficult to pass a generic view on the rooms because they seem to be all different in many ways. We stopped in room 201, which was right at the end of the complex, near the kids park and golf course. The wifi was difficult to get most of the time so gave up with that eventually. The apartment itself was a good size, well furnished, the only downside was they put bunkbeds in the lounge area, so everyone had to go to bed at the same time. The outside had a large balcony area which looked over the golf course and a view of the mountain. The kitchen area is basic, there is a fridge, 2 ring electric hob, kettle, toaster and cutlery. Its enough to get you going but dont expect to hold dinner parties :). If you want TV, there a few free channels but the rest you have to pay for. The room has a safety deposit box but it will cost you 2.25 euros per day, but it is recommended. The maid service is regular but they could do with spending time cleaning floors. Bathroom was large, but suffered from a daily visit by tiny ants. 4. Restaurant In alot of reviews, the food has come under alot of criticism, many around the buffet. We ate in the restaurant 3 times during the stay and chose off the actual menu. The food was good and plenty of it. The staff were friendly and great with kids. The food was reasonably priced. 5. Kids club We have a 9yr old that has been to a few clubs before and wanted to go to this one. She went to tribe and absolutely loved it. They did different things everyday and did themed parties every week for 5 euros extra. The staff were brilliant and the kids loved them. The middle club'team' seemed very popular, some were being turned away. 6. Night entertainment The entertainment staff tried their very best to put on shows when there was no official acts booked. Its served a purpose but it isnt brilliant. The energy levels are high but the quality is not quite there. 7. Trips We went on the panoramic Tiede tour, you get picked up early and do spend a lot of time on the coach during the day. You get to see alot of the island and you cut across the mountain range. There are a few stop off at various cafÃ© for food and drink and there is a 1hr walk around an old village and church. Its good but be prepared for spending day in the coach. I can highly recommend the medieval night. Great family entertainment, food and drink included. Its a must do. The san miguel submarine trip is also good. 30m below sea level, fish and rays are attracted to the sub by the divers. Personally it didnt last long enough as you only get 1hr. We booked the loro park visit thru the reps at the hotel. This is a must goto place, the dolphin and orca shows are excellent. The only issue was it is quite rushed as you lose 4hrs of park time due to coach pick ups and leaving 2hrs before park closes. Overall we had a great holiday, relaxed and had fun by the pool. I would put the hotel in the 3+ / 4 star category. It is very family friendly, the staff are good and helpful. More
Good and bad
Just returned from holiday here and on first night we found no bed for our little 3 year old (which we had requested ) my two boys then found what looked like (after 7 hours of travel and at 01:00 ) blood on the wall and steps up their room which freaked them out .I complained about this next morning and found out I would need to pay â¬20 for a bed for the little one and that the "blood" was in fact red polish that in the words of the receptionist the cleaners just didn't clean .Over the course of the week I found that the resort is really isolated and if u are a family of 5 getting a big taxi is a real problem , the shop in the complex although the sell the best rolls baked daily is really overpriced but hey u can either walk 20 mins or just buy there so mmmm........ I would return to the island but not to this resort More
excellent family resort
Just had 2 weeks with my husband and teenagers 14 and 16yrs very impressed with the large appartment. Kids had large bedroom and bathroom downstairs, my husband and i had large bedroom with en suit bathroom upstairs with rooftop terrace. Lovely pools, daytime and evening entertainment. The only downside was the 20min walk to the main resort and beach but there was a taxi rank just up the road about 4 euros. The resort joins onto playa de las americas, lots of bars resteraurants shops etc, overall fantastic holiday would recomend to anyone with kids all ages.More
