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.

we have just come back from a weeks holiday at the villa mandi 1/5/15 to 8/5/15. there were 6 in our party 4 adults and 2 children. we had appartments overlooking the childrens play area which were very spacious.and quiet. we stayed full board and dispite previous comments the food was good we had buffet at breakfast and evening meal and for lunch we choose from an extensive lunch menu. there was no restriction on what we could have and quite often have a 3 course lunch but must say we found that if we ate a lot at lunch we could not do justice to the evening buffet. the 1st drink with your meal is free pint a beer glass of wine soft drink or water.the only downside to the food was that the vegetable were not as hot as i would like, but there was plenty of choice.all the staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly. the thomson reps are also very helpful and friendly and the kids loved the nite time shows with little pups for the tots and kennel club for the older children but not much entertainment for the adults it was mainly audience participation. we went into las americas by taxi a couple of nites to sample the entertainment there. the hotel is a good 20/30mins walk but we tended to get the shuttle bus down at either 10.30 or 11.30 am and got a taxi back which cost between 4 and 6 euros. there is a taxi rank not far from the hotel but the staff in reception will call for a taxi and the fare price is the same. this is not quite a four star hotel as indicated but a good 3 starMore

Overall disappointing. Ant the rep was very helpful, unlike the reception staff. Breakfast was unbelievably bad, freezing cold most days - despite complaining - repeatedly. Complex a bit tired looking, room was spacious but not clean on arrival, had too request cleaners to come and sort it, it took 2 days!!!!!! Microwave had the best part of someones elses tomato based dinner still in there!. Would not recommend this to anyone.More

Lovely hotel nice and quiet and relaxing. Rooms are very good size with lovely views over golf course. Agree with some previous reports about the restaurant. We were self catering but only tried restaurant once & this was enough. Food sub standard for a 4 star & service appalling. We were even asked at 8.50pm when having main course to choose a desert as kitchen was closing! More
Peaceful and relaxing
We had a lovely week at this hotel. The staff of the hotel and the Thomson team were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. The kitchen facilities were limited, as others have said, but we had never expected to be cooking full blown meals so that was ok with us. The hotel is a long way out of town but we do a lot of walking when we're on holiday so again that didn't matter to us. Several people have mentioned the danger of slipping round the pool but while we were there workmen came in and covered the majority of the area with synthetic grass which made a big difference. There didn't seem to be many other guests around while we were there (April 21st to 28th 2015) but they said it would get much livelier within the following couple of weeks. Although busy, Los Cristianos and Las Americas were also a lot quieter than they probably are at other times of the year but again that suited us!! When I asked about wi-fi it was apparently included in the room we were in (206) don't know why so presumably some other rooms were the same otherwise I believe you have to pay for it. A small number of TV channels were free but we never watched it anyway.More

Comfortable room but poor restaurant
Went half board April with our younger boys,17 and 10. Weather really good and location of the hotel meant a ten minute walk to nearest restaurants which was good for us. Rooms were clean and comfortable and excellent for self-catering. However,we had paid half board and regretted that as the quality of food served in restaurant was poor and service unpleasant. We tried it 3 out of the 7 nights and had to complain to the Thomson reps. They were very helpful and made arrangements to compensate for our disappointment and inconvenience.We were very impressed by Thomson customer care.More
