Hotel Arona Gran  

This hotel does a good line in sea views, relaxed pools and low-key entertainment.

This luxury hotel overlooks the sea, with great views of the harbour. A promenade leads into Los Cristianos – roughly 15 minutes’ walk away – and stretches onwards to Playa de las Americas.

The centrepiece here is a trio of pools teamed with a palm-dotted terrace. Highlights on the food front include sea-view à la carte lunches, and in the evenings a piano bar and show lounge provide the entertainment.

FANTASTIC!!

The most fantastic hotel. It is stunning from the outside and even more so once you've gone inside. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotless. The restaurant is amazing and seems to cater for people from all over the world. Every member of staff goes out of their way to make your holiday special. You won't find one speck of dust in this hotel. Rooms are cleaned daily. This hotel has 'themed' evenings in the Restaurant. On a Monday it's Canarian Night, when you can purchase local preserves, wine, and other goodies and staff wear traditional costumes. Wednesday evening is 'Black and White' night, when guests dress appropriately. We had a brilliant time and have already planned our return next year. Molly and Roger FixterMore

Spring Arona two years on

Apart from my wrinkles not a lot has changed, the Spring is still a good Hotel. The staff are amazing how they service so many people especially at meal times. This time we stayed 11 days as opposed to 7 days before and I have to say the meal times got very samey after 7 nights and we formed an escape committee and ate out one night. We met someone on their 21st visit, that must say something. The shows were a bit weak but they are free, we did witness people leaving in the middle of some. If you are aged under 50 I would seriously think about whether you want to be in a Hotel full of wrinklies wandering about. They still have this unenforceable notice regarding no food or drink in the rooms, ridiculous, ignore it. Sundowners on your balcony is a right! Although we won't stay there again as it is rare we go to the same place twice I recommend this Hotel.More

Avoid the Upgrade.

Arrived at the Arona Gran reception to be greeted with a glass of fizz. As all the rooms were not ready we were told we would be upgraded to a pool view instead of a side view. These rooms 233 and several other north facing rooms do not get any sun on the balcony.the side view rooms have constant sun so no favours there. The hotel itself is of a good standard with excellent warm pools and well maintained grounds. easy access to the walkway along the front.The evening entertainment is varied and the piano bar amusing, bar service in all areas was good .The problem area is the restaurant! If you found a table that was laid up or not reserved you would feel so crammed in . we enjoy our dining experiences but prefer to eat and chat as a couple and not on almost banqueting seating. The choice for breakfast was good ,but the evening meal was a let down.so much convenience and tinned foods for a hotel with such high references ,even the fruit salad was tinned and the food was not always hot. I think the hand sanitiser at the entrance to the restaurant could have a higher profile ,as you see many people handle the foods then put it back .That said we had an enjoyable break with some warm winter sunMore

Brilliant hotel and staff

Spent 11 days here this month, our first visit but certainly not our last. We had a beautiful room kept spotless by the maid, 646, always ask for a high floor which we usually get but first time actually get the top floor, great. Food was lovely and varied even at times not quite hot enough but the soups were very good as were the deserts. This is not an adult only hotel but felt like one, there were a couple of children there but were very well behaved. Recommend the trip over to La Gomera but do take a very warm coat and wear trousers as it is very cold up in the forest. Went to the musical night it was ok but have seen a lot lot better. You dont need to take any pool towels as the ones provided are very good. Thank you Arona Gran for a brilliant holiday and will see you again one day.More

January Break

This is the first time we have stayed at the Arona Gran, although we have been into the hotel before. We chose this hotel as opposed to others because there was not a hill to climb. Although the area is is not the best the overriding feature is that a 5 minute walk will bring you on to the beach side walk. I like to be as constructive as I can with my reviews, so I will start with the room. We booked late and as a result did not have a room overlooking the pool and it was listed as a partial sea view, there was actually no problem with the location and a bonus was that in the afternoon the sun was on the balcony. The room itself was adequate I suggest that if you can bring more hangers, you always need more!. The beds were very comfortable and I understand that if you want for a small charge you can have a choice of pillows. The television was good with all English channels available. The air con was a bit of a mystery it was either off or on and we were undecided on several nights whether we leave the patio door open slightly with the zircon off or the other way round. There was a leak under the basin in the bathroom and we filled out a card to report the fault but this went unheeded . The water was hot and the shower was powerful. One hint I would share is to indulge in tea/coffee making facilities in the room, this costs 5 euros a day and includes a daily bottle of water. The outside was a joy plenty of sun beds and shades and the eating areas were relaxed. The biggest bonus was that the pools were heated and very enjoyable. You are supplied with a robe and pool towels and for your room you are given slippers, just to go back to the room ,flannels (facecloths) were NOT supplied. The entertainment in the evenings was great, the Salon Teide was a great place to have an after dinner drink and enjoy the very good entertainment, the staff were prompt and attentive. Now lets move on to the dining experience, I noted that on the wall of the dining room there is a certificate allowing 850 persons , and at breakfast and evening meal you get the sense that all 850 people are there with you. They say there are 2 certainties in life - death and taxes , I shall add a third,at some point you will be lost in the dining room. I agree with others who have stated that the food is only warm and I dismiss the argument that it is what you get with buffet food. I would say that overall the dining experience in the hotel was far from perfect , one tip is to arrive for your meal at about 6.30pm and the choices of tables are plentiful, if you leave it another hour then it becomes a bit of a scrum. I would urge the management team to look at this area I would also urge everyone to use the hand gel provided. I dismiss other reviews such as Jockk who obviously has issues with older people, these are the people who keep these hotels going. Would I stay there overall I would go again, Overall we had an enjoyable time.More
