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.

Excellent apartment overlooking golf course
We were in room 313 overlooking golf course and children's playground and gardens. The apartment was very large with a lovely lounge and kitchen. Very large bedroom, bathroom with double basin bath and shower in Bath, a bidet and toilet were slightly separated although in the same area. A large balcony and huge sun terrace with loungers and umbrella. One of the nicest apartments we have stayed in spacious and airy. Towels changed as required and sheets as required.More

Very good, just eat elsewhere
Villa Mandi is a very nice establishment for families. The room we got (111) was quite big with a bunk bed and a sleeper couch for the kids in the living room and a large double bed in a separate bedroom. Also in the room there was a small kitchen and quite big bathroom, all in good shape. As we were on the ground floor there was a small terrace with a table and chairs. My only complaint about the room is the non-existent noise isolation. The best part of Villa Mandi was the pool. Actually there was two pools, but the smaller one was not heated so most kids (and adults) chose the bigger one. Around the pool there was also table tennis, two pool tables but no mini golf, which had apparently been removed at some point (it was still present in the small map of the premises we got when checking in). Also handy (but rather expensive although not outrageously) was the hotel's small super market. That was the good part. The downside was the restaurant. We tried the buffet once and it was awful. It was supposed to be a bbq buffet but the selection was limited and the food was poorly prepared out of poor resources. The price was expensive, so I strongly recommend either checking out good restaurants in TripAdvisor or going to the local cheap super market just 800 m away and cooking your own food in the room's kitchen. Other downside was the lack of recycling: the cleaning lady just threw all glass and plastic to the same big trash bag when cleaning our room. So overall a very good experience, just avoid the restaurant and they could improve in their recycling.More
Well, as the title of my review says, this place is a mixed bag of highs and lows. I will start with the highs. The outer appearance of villa Mandi is very nice and the grounds are exceptionally clean. The pool areas are fantastic, the staff are extremely helpful and the rooms are big. On the other hand, my girlfriend and I arrived and we did the usual checking around the apartment. I took the toaster out of the cupboard to use but immediately took it outside as it was dirty, so of course the local ant colony took great pleasure in this! The kettle had enough calc on the bottom to choke an elephant. We asked for these to be replaced but to no avail. The next day we thought we would give them one more chance before going to the rep and within 3 minutes of asking, a brand new toaster and kettle arrived and the old ones taken away. Turns out the girl we asked the first time is just a bit moody and lazy. Our bed sheets were never changed once in the 1 week we were here and the housekeeping staff all seem to get a Sunday off as our room didn't get cleaned. I wasn't that bothered tho as it's just one day but I'm sure others would mind. I would advise not to eat in the restaurant because the food is awful and for the price you could get 100 times better in the town. The hotel is a good 20 minute walk at least to both los Cristianos and playa de las americas so be ready for that. The on site supermarket is handy at times but a lot more expensive than the big one which is a 5-10 minute walk down the street. Taxis from here to the towns and Siam park are cheap. Around 5-7 euros for both. It's very quiet around the hotel because there is not much very close to it. You also have to pay extra if you want to watch more than 6 news channels on the tv - â¬14 for a week, and â¬15 a week to use the safe in the room. Some people here seem to like it and are previous guests, but I've stayed in a lot better for less and wouldn't stay here again. Also, a lot of families stay here with kids. More
What a crap hole!
Just returned from a week stay at Villa Mandi.... What a load of crap! No way is that a 4*+ Hotel!, started by arriving and waiting to be allocated to our rooms, upon getting to our room we found a disgustingly filthy, dark and miserable pit. and straight outside the terrace door was the children's play area. Considering it was suppose to be a relax week holiday for two adults to find our room straight next to the children's play area during half term was ridiculous! Not to mention the lack of light and sun to the apartment due to the tree line and children play area. The room its self was minging, dull and dreary! absolutely disgused at the state of it. Staff there are also pig ignorant, when we went to speak to one of the staff she basically shrugged and said, not my problem. what kind of customer service is that? Food - Foul!, cold and inedible. Would not recommend this place for a gold pig!! what a waste of money, spoilt the whole week and will never ever return to this crap hole.More
If you are looking for fancy, superficial and lively place this is not for you. But if you like some kind of quitness, authentic people and family like surrounding then this might be your place. Rooms could be updated but are clean. Hotel area has a lot of spots were you can be by youself if you like. Would definitely come back.More
