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.

Got back last week after a weeks stay. Overall it was ok but not enough for me to say wow must return. Only informed by Thompson about two weeks prior to our departure about ongoing refurb. Almost constant back ground noise of angle grinder & drilling. I e mailed the hotel to ask for more info on refurb but they were rather vague in their reply. Having said that our room on 2 nd floor was comfortable had a good view & had full sun on balcony from mid day onwards. The furnishings are rather dark & overpowering , definately in need of refurb. The housekeeping staff worked very hard & were always happy to oblige well done! Having stayed in many hotels full or half board would rate food no better than average. Found breakfast time particularly chaotic made worse by the fact towards the end of our stay they roped off part of the dining room presumably because of lack of numbers, would not like to be staying when it was full !! We only went to two evening shows at the hotel, one was a Queen tribute awful ! the other a Beatles tribute very good. Whatever you do treat yourself to the show The Sound Of Musicals near Costa Adeje absolutely fantastic for the price you get a two course meal & as much drink as you want & a fantastic show. If you fancy eating out for a change there is a bar just across the road run by some people from Yorkshire they have just set up in business, their fish & chips are to die for. Overall i would say an average stay at an average hotelMore

Stayed at the Arona Gran for 2 weeks 10th-24 April, very impressed with the interior so vast with plenty of seating and the marble effect in the foyer. And beautiful lighting hanging down, We stayed on the fourth floor which was nice but was spoilt by being on the side ,had a lovely view but the sun was never on our balcony with a cold wind maybe in the summer it might be warmer, the rooms are dated but there is refurbishment going on from the top floor down, they could thin some of the foliage on the corridors as it is a bit overpowering, The restaurant is quite big where the food is excellent with plenty of choice from fresh fruit and juices, cereals and the usual cooked breakfasts lovely tasty breads, the evening meals are again plenty of choices with variety of fishes and cooked meats veg, pastas, soups, plenty of deserts, cheese and biscuits .there are two good size pools with plenty of sunbeds and parasols, The entertainment is good from tributes acts acrobats and operatic. There is a good supermarket right opposite for your water etc.. and to your right there are three restaurants and two bars with entertainment we went to the first one `Polygon` where there were excellent singers and very friendly and the drinks were very cheap 3 euros for a spirit and they were large ones .You can walk from the hotel along the promenade through to the next resort and on and on which is all flat with plenty of bars and restaurants where you can stop for a drink. When we come back to Tenerife will definitely stay at the Arona.More

I have stayed at this hotel twice before. It is a four star. I travelled alone. I had a fabulous room, this is because I asked for a particular room and location. Slippers and dressing gowns are supplied. The towels were super soft and so was the dressing gown. Room was extremely clean and fresh cotton bedding with ample supplies of toiletries, even a comb!!). The corridoors and rooms are tired but the hotel is undergoing a major refurb. The entertainments team, ( Reuben and Ricardo) are excellent. The guests were mainly aged over 50 and this hotel is very popular with British people. The pool areas are outstanding with loads of sunbeds with lovely thick mattresses on them. There were always plenty of sunbeds available. The water in the pools was warm. Food was very good with lots of choices. Lovely fresh salads, two chefs cooking different dishes etc. Something for everyone. I love this hotel and I am hoping to go back in September, ( I returned from my two week break here on the 28th April 2015. I have not read previous reviews.More

Another fantastic holiday at our favourite hotel
we arrived home yesterday from a 2 week stay at the Arona GrÃ¡n....we had a fab time the weather was great..staff lovely...only thing I would mention is that the dining room was divided in our second week as the hotel was not busy, it felt really cramped when trying to get to hot plates for food especially for some clients with disabilities. Nevertheless we always enjoy our stay as we feel very much at home. We went out for a meal one evening which was a disaster as food was not good, so we then have decided no point in going out as the hotel food is great and you see the food being cooked. You can have anything you want and the chef will cook how you like it. We found the evening bar staff on the terrace not as pleasant as the staff on function room. But again I have to mention Sabrina at the pool services as she is always smiling and nothing is a bother to her, she is so pleasant. I know there have been work going on in the hotel but to be honest it did not bother us at all. The new Spa is wonderful....well done Arona GrÃ¡n it is very classy and relaxing. We know there are going to be changes in November at the hotel but the changes will be good we have been told. Once again I have to mention Ruben and Ricardo in animation as they do make our holiday fun as sometimes good to go and join in activities. We now look forward to November to our next trip......More
