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.

Our favourite Tenerife hotel

Just back home from another very enjoyable stay. Everything first class as usual. Staff most courteous, hotel spotless and food excellent. Can't wait to get back. As one of the "old people" I do use the Internet and the gym!More

James S,

Just as good as the first time

I've just returned from my second visit to the Spring Arona Gran in Los Cristianos. I had read a few less than complimentary comments on other reviews but having stayed there a couple of years ago wasn't too worried about what I had read. From the moment we stepped out of the taxi we were greeted by smiling faces and hello's wherever we went in the hotel. We had paid extra for seaview room which was extremely comfortable and always spotlessly clean. The food was as good as ever with a huge selection at breakfast, the breads being particularly delicious and ensured I came home carrying a few extra pounds. Dinner was equally good with fish, shellfish and meat on offer, numerous salads, cheeses and desserts...too much to choose from. Yes some areas of the rooms may be a little tired but this is still a first class hotel that we still cannot fault and are already looking to our third visit. Happy Christmas to you all at the Spring Aron Gran and thank you for a lovely, relaxing break More

Jill M,

Old peoples home dressed up as hotel

There is nothing bad to say about this hotel on a first glance. The rooms are spacious & clean. The breakfast and dinner buffets are varied and always tasty. Nice pools, and good facilities overall + very nice piano bar. With extremely polite staff. However this place is filled with old people it's almost depressing. And the hotel caters to them. I guess they are good customers. Whatever old people use (like pools, card playing rooms etc) are in good state. What old people do not use (like the gym or othe rsports facilities) are in a bad state. For the gym I would say it is dreadful! Also, hot having free wifi round the hotel (including rooms) is just not done anymore today, but again I guess the elderly don't know what internet is.More

Another fabulous holiday

We returned yesterday from this hotel, I think it was our 19th visit. The hotel is superb, friendly and efficient staff, excellent food, I was a little worried having read the comments from repeat visitors on trip advisor but as soon as we arrived we knew we would enjoy our stay. We go away 3 or 4 times a year to 4 and 5 star hotels but have never found one we like as much as the Arona Gran.. It is the only hotel I know where Public Relations staff are Seated outside the dining room every night to speak to guests if they wish and their office is accessible to guests at all other times of the day. There is some work going on at the moment but as explained on notices all over the hotel it is necessary to bring the hotel up to a standard for disabled guests. We sat round the pool area every day for 2 weeks and the noise was not a major problem, some days it was not even noticeable. Whilst there we spoke to many guests who were there for the first time and were planning to return, we also spoke to guests who like ourselves visit regularly and intend to carry on visiting the hotel. There is entertainment for everyone but the pianist Jeremy Powell is fantastic And keeps everyone entertained. We are already planning our next visit in a few months time. Judy and Stuart HardyMore

Still a very nice place to stay

I have previously written reviews about this hotel and this time round I would be more or less repeating myself in as much as little has changed. I'll get to the good bits later on so keep reading! The hotel still needs refurbishing to bring it up to date, fittings and furnishings in the bedrooms are worn and tired. The refurbishment which was planned for 2014 did not take place and as I would expect that I'll likely visit again some time during 2015, we'll see what happens. During our recent visit there were works being undertaken to install a lift for wheelchair users to the gym area adjacent to and below pool level, as a consequence, the Gym would not be available? not a concern for me (not a criticism, merely an observation) however the contractors obviously don't know that you can attach silencers to pneumatic tools and there was quite a lot of noise. Before my arrival I sent an email to the PR department with a request (I understand nothing is ever guaranteed) and I asked for a response which never came this was a little disappointing. When we arrived I was not satisfied with the room allocated to us and reception were very good and re-arranged things to try and accommodate us. staff at the hotel are always very caring and efficient and must be complimented. the food as per usual is excellent and there is always plenty of choice. at busy times in the dining room it can be a bit of a scrum in the area just in from the entrance which is a natural 'crossroads' however you just learn to negotiate carefully and all is well. Hygiene standards are very good at the hotel and towel and bed linen changes are on a daily basis if you wish, they even have hand sanitizers in the dining room now which is a plus point and recognises changing standards. So, all in all very good value for money and a real pleasure to stay here, we will return!More
