This hotel does a good line in sea views, relaxed pools and low-key entertainment.
This luxury hotel will be known as Sensimar Arona Gran & Spa from November 2015. It 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 the two 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. From November 2015, this hotel will become part of the Thomson Sensimar collection.

Have booked again!
This was our 4th time to the Arona Gran, and it just gets better and better! Celebrating Hubbys' special birthday (no not 21).Had a new room on the 6th Floor - superb (thank you to the lovely lady on reception!) - Please can we have 6th floor new room again in February 2016, because I've just booked for us to go again - need I say more..? I will. Room gorgeous. Food excellent - every day. Felt lushes at Breakfast with a lovely glass of cold Cava (thank you!). Pool excellent - lots of sunbeds. Builders? Yes. They were there. Did we know they were there? Hardly at all, they did not spoil a thing. No trips (too lazy). Entertainment was ok - BUT table top magician Steve Johnson was Brilliant!! Best entertainer while we were there. The groups are good, and everything winds up before midnight, so caught up on rest too. The ferry comes in at 8am - but think that that time is ok for waking up? Tea & coffee very welcome and a bottle of water each day, thank you. Loved the rose and petals too. Cleaning ladies superb. See you in February!More

Just come back from another amazing week at this hotel which feels like "home" now after 12 years of visiting on more than 16 occasions either travelling as a two or meeting friends we've made at the hotel. Devastated to learn that October half term will be our last chance to stay at this hotel with our friends that we have made there and meet every year because they have decided to make it couples only! I know that, and you can see from the reviews, once you come to this hotel you want to come back. I travel as a widowed parent with my son 14, who loves this hotel too! One of the attractions of the hotel is that there are only ever a few children (probably because it is a bit pricy to stay) just enough kids to make friends but not enough to be a family hotel! I also know that other families have been coming for years and now bring their grandchildren as I hoped to do! So why, why, why discriminate against those of us who are not a couple and take away our annual holiday destination which has always been a little " certain' ray of sunshine in our year! Beyond disappointed and sooooo upset!More
The entertainment is amazing, Rodrigo is such a fun person and lifts everyone's sprits as well as putting a smile on everyone's face in Aqua gym and all the other activities. It's a shame it's becoming couples only as my whole family really enjoyed our stay.More
great 10 night stay
My partner and I booked this hotel last minute. Knowing it was well rated but undergoing renovations we still felt we were getting a good deal. Yes there was noise from the builders but I found the noise fairly welcome for getting me up in time for the end of breakfast and it did not run into the evening. To be honest you forget it was going on. The location is ok. With there not being many hotels backed onto the beaches it was nice but it was a 15 minute walk to a good beach. Plenty of lovely restaurants and bars nearby however the food was so good at the hotel it was hard to justify eating out. It was very pleasant in the evenings to have a few cocktails and watch the sun set at the bars just a 2 minute walk away. The hotel tried with the entertainment but wasn't to our taste. Thomson ran many excursions which are well worth doing. Sometimes the same price as the street vendors however would not overcrowd boats and coaches. Staff are friendly and hotel is immaculate. Only down side staying here are the drink prices expect to pay double the local bars. Make sure you pack trousers for dinner... I had to buy some having not packed any! This is ideal for couples and families.More
