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 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 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. From November 2015, this hotel will become part of the Thomson Sensimar collection.

Good class hotel
My husband and I visited the arona gran for the first time beginning of May 2015. The hotels first impression was stunning. Fab foyer candelabras very elaborate. Polished marble flooring. Staff very friendly and accommodating. The food was of good quality and variety but a little bland for us (we like french cuisine.) We had a limited sea view room on third floor. It was large with a nice size balcony and of a very high standard. I'ts position however didn't give us any direct sun. We paid for safe on arrival. Found the drinks and wine of resonable value in the hotel. Swimming pools were heated. Beds around pool were comfortable with towels supplied. We always managed to find a bed. Location of the hotel not quite as central as we had hoped being on the far end of the promenade. We would return after the refurbishment. That's not to say that there was a problem with the work that was going on apart from a bit of noise in the day around the pool area. Overall enjoyed our stay very much.More
First impressions were great with a huge inviting lobby area and check-in was fairly efficient. Rooms were quite large, clean and comfortable however they are quite dated. The view over looking the pool and sea was lovely. The rooms do have UK TV channels such as bbc1 and itv1&2. However the hotel is going through a renovation process. There is some building noise throughout the day but nothing too intrusive. (we were informed by Thomson weeks before arrival). The rooms have recently been equipped with Tea & Coffee facilities as well as surprisingly reliable free wifi for basic Facebook etc use. The buffet restaurant does have themed nights and on the whole, at dinner there is a wide selection of foods available to try to cater for all needs. The breakfasts are impressive with pretty much most you could ask for, pastries, cooked food, fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals and cold meats. We didn't eat every night in the hotel as we went to a couple of restaurants locally that were recommended. There is entertainment after dinner in the hotel bar area however avoided it as it appeared a bit ameturish. The pool area and facilitates were good with plenty of cushioned sun loungers and umbrellas with a waiter service too. The pool temperature is about 30degrees so no need for a slow entrance into the pool. We thought the hotel was good and all the staff are very friendly. The hotel does definitely cater for the 'SAGA ' age group, there were a few 20-30s couples but few and far between ( including us) Whilst my partner and I were not here for a party holiday at all, we felt a little too isolated from the centre which is a good 20 minute walk away along the seafront. We personally wouldn't stay here again, but we didn't regret our choice. The hotel caters very very well for its target clientele and we do not hold that against them at all. More

This was out 3rd holiday at the Arona Gran Hotel. It was fantastic although there was renovation work going on it wasn't intrusive or noisy. Food wow what can I say it was totally fantastic beautiful rester ant clean tidy fresh replenished very regularly and the staff and chefs work extreme hard I would say on the night you get the king prawns they need to be marinated in a little garlic but it's not important. The waiting staff are lovely breakfast is fantastic. We stayed in room 124 and had a full sea view the room was perfect clean comfortable beds the house keeping staff work so very very hard and they are so helpful and accommodating. On the whole there is nothing wrong with the Gran Arona the entertainment needs bringing up to standard and the piano playing is just so brilliant. We can't wait to go back we are needing another holiday very soon.thankyou everyone at the Gran Arona for making our holiday perfect love and best wishes Denise and Steve xxxxMore

Enjoyable Second Visit
Just returned from a holiday at the Spring Arona Gran, Los Cristianos, Tenerife. TIhis was our second visit and were warned that the hotel was currently undergoing refurbishment and that disruption would be kept to a minimum which is was. The service was still very good, all amenities were open except for the cabaret theatre which was a great shame because the bar did not show off the excellent entertainment to its advantage. Unfortunately if you were sat further back than the front 2 rows it was impossible to see properly and as most of the acts were visual acts this was a great shame. I hope they open the room very soon. We still enjoyed our stay, the hotel is in a really good position being right on the sea front but away from the any noise. It didn't take long to walk along the sea front to some lovely beaches with lots of good bars and restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend it for all age groups.More
