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.

Spring aroma gran Tenerife

One of the poorest Thomson holidays we have ever had! Poor service, rooms not ready for check in, self service seating for the only restaurant for all meals . Very expensive drinks. The gym was absolute rubbish, any hotel that calls this a gym should be sued under the trades description act. Rubbish , ancient equipment , exercise bikes with no straps for the pedals, ditto the rowing machine , exercise machines that were from a time warp. No hygienic sprays anywhere for wiping down the equipment, on two occasions no towels either. Advertised as having two squash courts and a sauna, all closed and had not been in use for months how can they advertise facilities like this which were not a available Self service pick up from the airport on the coach to the hotel, it wasnt meant to be, the rep got on the coach, counted heads, sat down and never said a word . When we arrived at a set of traffic lights in Los Cristianos she jumped ship and that was it, really poor. In defence of some hotel services, the rooms were ok, the main areas ok, the food once you had managed to find an unoccupied seat was good. Would I go back? NEVER,More

Great Hotel but Manager take note

We stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and decided to return for a one week stay. Overall the hotel has improved since our last visit and deserves its 4 star rating. The food is wonderful with so much choice I tend to vary my diet each day and had no problems. The hotel has massive space inside and out so you can normally find a quiet spot if that,s what you like. Due to the new policy of no reserving sun beds this was no longer a problem to find one. I would like to have given this hotel a rating of about 4.7 not 5 because of the smoking policy. The outside area of the complex is all smoking, but my particular problem as a non smoker is that the outside eating area and in the evening the outside seating area are both all smoking areas. There is no where outside for non smokers to eat lunch or enjoy an evening drink without being engulfed in smoke. In the lift there is an interesting statment --"Due to financial reasons it is not allowed to bring drinks and food into the hotel. Our bars and resturants are at your service". Well my point for the managment to address is that smoking does not help you financially. We tried the lunch resturant twice and were smoked out. As with many others we then purchased our drinks and lunch outside and had it on our balcony. Come on management you can not expect non smokers to purchase your food and drink if there is no outside area for it to be enjoyed. at least give us half of the areas. I dont think we will return until the smoking policy is addressed.More

Spring Arona Tenerife

Perfect hotel!! fantastic food, good entertainment, heated outdoor swimming pool. the staff were very helpful, entertainment in the evenings was varied to suit everyone. there was also bridge and a pool table The hotel was spotlessly clean. Rent the fridge if you dont want the mini bar. Plenty of walks (if you want one) beach nearby, also good variety of shops. we were very impressed with the hotel and have already booked three weeks for next year.More

Very nice hotel, but...

This hotel was close to perfection. Very good location near the beach, nice pool, good food, impressive lobby, very good service. There are still some things that could be improved: the airco in the rooms was just a bit too warm, even on its lowest temperature, the bathroom was a bit outdated. One big point of criticism: the hotel was overbooked so we had to stay in another hotel from Spring Hotels. Not a bad place (though nearly not as good as this one) and things like this can happen. And we were compensated royally for the inconvenience. But... It seems to happen all of the time here. We met at least three other couples who had the same experience, our touroperator told us it happened frequently. One couple was even sent to another hotel for an entire week. I hope the hotel managers read this, because it's a false start to an otherwise perfect holiday.More

PROBABLY, the best Hotel on Tenerife?

This is my 3rd return to The Arona Gran, 5th time on Tenerife. I can't imagine a Tenierife holiday at any other Hotel. The Arona Gran delivered as expected on all levels. The food is absolutely fantastic. The staff very friendly and helpful. The Hotel is spotlessly clean and the facilities perfect. If you don't need the mini bar I would recommend you rent the fridge for the week as we did to keep your drinks etc cold. If you have a Spring Card, the Wifi in the hotel is free and of course you get the 15% off you hotel tab at the end of the week. This is not hotel for "Lager Louts" and will give a relaxed laid back holiday. It more than deserves the 4 Star rating it has and with just a couple of tweeks could be a 5 Star, but I'm quite happy with the way it is and even though it's not cheap, represents excellent value for money. I'm saving already for my next visit 😃More
