good hotels on a buget

we recently stayed at this hotel for a ten day break. Whilst I would like to blame the hotel for the weather that would be a little unfair but other than the weather it was pretty ok all round. We stayed on a B&B basis and as most people know breakfast is breakfast the world over. Good choice, well cooked, well presented just just a little cold at times. The facilities were reasonable, the pool was ok and the location of the hotel was excellent. We did not manage to get a sea view as the hotel was fully booked but the room itself was good although I would point out one problem with the room service. Despite telling the desk at 9am that I had broken a glass and had moved most of the shards under the bed the broken glass was still there the next day. This was a little disappointing and the only reason that I would not give the hotel a very good rating. I thought that this was a little dangerous given that we all walk bare foot in hotel rooms. On balance the staff are of the first order and we found them very helpful. I did not find one of them who did not have a smile. No doubt if you go to a hotel and actively look for problems you will find them somewhere but if you are looking for a good mid range hotel with no pretensions then i think you will find that this will do the job.More

Sewage problem

Great location and OK as a no-children hotel, BUT we got the notorious tummy bug during our Christmas stay last year. Thomson gave the usual bland responses (very slowly - hence the delay in posting this review) to our report of our problem and ignored a key point - I think the cause could well be the sewage pumped into the sea twice a day from the treatment (??) plant near the harbour only a few hundred yards in front of the hotel, with big waves and west winds blowing spray off the sea straight into the hotel. Not the hotel's fault, but still something to bear in mind. With all that tourist income, you would think the local government could lay a proper sewage outfall. If you look at the ratings of the 1000-odd reviews, over 10% are poor or terrible (a good number because of tummy bugs)- that's not a risk I would take again.More

Stil los gigantes-the shower curtain didn't stick to me.

We returned last night from a two week stay in this super hotel. Having read some contributions here before going, I was a bit worried about being attacked by a rogue shower curtain, as this seemed to be a regular moan for some. Thankfully, I have no complaints in this, or any other, department. Another complaint I read was that bathrooms needed upgraded, ours was perfectly adequate, shower, bath, toilet, wash hand basin, hair drier, mirrors, what more is expected, I don't know, unless maybe , a bidet. Our room, on the sixth floor, was large, by usual standards, with a view of the village, harbour, and cliffs, and our maid was a very pleasant girl, which seemed to be standard for this hotels staff. From our welcome, with a drink, to our check out, we found the staff in every department, helpful and pleasant. The food, in my opinion, was excellent, with a great selection of salads, especially. The pool areas, and gardens are well kept, with lifeguards on duty, plenty sun beds, even though a couple who usually sunbathed near us, "reserved" their beds, often from 9.00 until their arrival at 1.30 ish. How good would it be if hotel staff removed towels after an hour or so. I won't comment on the entertainment, as what I saw wasn't to my taste, but that doesn't make it bad, because many other guests seemed to enjoy it. There are a few local bars providing entertainment, usually "tribute"acts, which stop at midnight. It's very noticeable that guests in this hotel often recognise each other, having stayed, and met here before. I think this speaks volumes for all this hotel provides, that guests return year after year. I'd be very happy to return here, same time next year, and would thoroughly recommend the hotel.More

The great flood...

Arrived on a Friday PM to warm Sunshine. That was the weekend you may have seen on TV with film of cars floating down the street in Santa Cruz and two people drowned. So much for winter sun then! That said the cliffs are awesome and with rain water pouring off them as water falls we probably got to see a sight many of the regulars don't even know exists.The rest of the week after Monday was beautiful and a bit of rain is always refreshing in these islands anyway. As other reviews cover the general layout, the comical march of the ants at pool door opening in the morning for sunbed reservation, lack of saucepans, wi fi, rooms, beds etc I'll just comment on what I felt about the place. The hotel is big. Built I believe in the mid sixties and architecturally fits that bill. That said it has clearly been looked after and kept up with the times, except maybe for the hamster powered lifts of which there are four that seem to operate to no particular pattern. We were on the fifth floor with a sea view and on pretty much every day we could see the island of La Gomera and a couple of the clear days we could also see across to La Palma in the distance so well worth the lift fun or stair exercise. All the staff were friendly and helpful, I didn't see any "grumpy old ones" and maybe it helps if you learn and chucl in the odd Spanish word here and there. Yep there was a clear and present danger of regular visitors but hey, they were friendly to and with the staff so you get out what you put in. You can't beat 'em so... We had absolutely no problem finding sunbeds, if you look all around the place there are probably more beds than people. Daily quiz was good fun and not so difficult you had to be a genius, though we did win twice. (You don't win anything just posing value!) We stayed half board but this was probably the most lazy stay we have ever had as the hotel prices were clearly designed to compete with outdoors and the quality of both food and drink in the main restaurant and the pool bar was very good. Thomson staff on hand were friendly and tuned in to the scene whilst the entertainment and service in the bar at night was excellent. All the folks we met were friendly and although I agree that in my fifties I was probably one of the nippers, I don't see why anyone would have their bottom lip out (the review giving one star because "it isn't the same as I remember it as a child" apart) about a stay Los Gigantes it is splendid isolation, or not if you don't want it to be and yes, I would go again.More

What a relief.

To be honest, I was dreading what we might find. My pre-conceptions of the south coast of Tenerife were proved to be fully justified as the coach from the airport dropped people off at some pretty ropey places. Ours was the last drop - you can't really go any further west. What a relief! the hotel is large and not the prettiest building in the world but newly refurbished, clean and nicely appointed. Everyone else has complimented the rooms, swimming pools and other facilities and I am in accord. The most important factor governing our enjoyment of the holiday though, is the people one has to share it all with. This is a "Couples Hotel" so we were already looking forward to the absence of undisciplined, spoilt children. What we hadn't forseen however, was the massive further advantage of not having to put up with their "modern" and "enlightened" parents either, who, lets face it, are usually even less blessed with the social graces than their little darlings. It was lovely to be able to sit in the bars and restaurants with the buzz of conversation unhindered by the constant ghastly ring tones of mobile phones. Couples actually spoke to each other rather than constantly typing fatuous text messages and taking mindless "selfies" Here then was genuine, good old fashioned social networking; not the kind that necessitates moronically staring at a screen in pursuit of the instant gratification of constant communication. To aid this wonderful feeling of a better age, the Maitre d' was quite superb, doing a wonderful job in making sure everyone was happy, keeping his staff on their toes and of course, buttering up the old girls! The very basic dress code of men being required to wear trousers to dinner was a nice touch. Could you not stretch it to the banning of t-shirts and flip flops? So, the all important figures (for our week) 1. Incidents of bad behaviour - 1. 2. inconsiderate use of a mobile phone - 1. 3. Serious violation of acceptable dress code -1. 4. Indescrete tattoos. - 1. 5. unpleasant piercings. - 1. Five is an excellent score; unequalled anywhere in my experience. It is even more remarkable when one realizes that they were all attributed to the same person, who vanished after one night; presumably in the direction of Los Cristianos. So if you fancy a bit of the good old fashioned good life, this place is for you. If you prefer a lifestyle more akin to "Eastenders" try a few miles further east.More
