This hotel has a huge pool, plus a great location on Playa de las Americas' boardwalk. Everything is done with style, from the flowering palm gardens to the sleek restaurants. Room upgrades are available, too - they throw in extras like sea views and free Wi-Fi.
Locations don’t get much better than this. Set in tropical gardens just across the boardwalk from Playa de las Americas the Hotel H10 Conquistador offers up widescreen views of the sea. It’s also just a stone’s throw from the town centre, so there are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants on the doorstep.
In terms of size, the hotel itself is positively palatial. And style-wise, it’s the epitome of understated elegance. The lobby for example is a huge marble space dressed with low-slung chocolate brown sofas and red velvet banquettes.
As for the bedrooms, they’re classical spaces with marble floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Extras like satellite TVs and balconies come as standard. You can also upgrade to a junior suite, where style is taken to a more high-fashion level.
A lot of thought has gone into the restaurants, too. In the main buffet venue, they've kept things simple with serve-yourself stations. Over by the pool, meanwhile, there’s an à la carte snack restaurant.
Talking of the pool area, it's the lagoon-style swimming pools that steal the show here. Stretching along the seafront, they’re accessorised with a waterfall, submerged Roman steps, an island and bridges. And if you really want to relax, the state-of-the-art Despacio Thalasso Conquistador is on hand for spa treatments, saunas and water therapies.
With outdoor shows such as parrot shows, salsa shows, an Abba tribute and an Amy Winehouse tribute, African dancers, a snake show, Brazil dancers, tango demonstrations and a Barry White tribute. There's plenty to keep everyone entertained. It's held by the pool spring to autumn.
Twin room sleeps up to 3, with 2 single beds and a camp-bed. Includes TV with limited English channels and a minibar - with drinks stocked on request. The room is on a low floor in the hotel, and when fully occupied there is no cot space.

stayed for a week all-inclusive privilege and room 722 .
All staff seemed friendly at reception and bars and main buffet while maids were quite reserved , and busy keeping all things clean and tidy
4 lifts which were slow
The room was quite small and compact with little storage space but a loverly balcony giving a very good view of the sea . Could be rather noisy with the daytime and evening entetainment but bearable . 2 single beds with an added topper were very comfy and aircon working a treat even with patio door open ! Good sized fridge and stocked daily with soft drinks but any alchohol had to be paid for . Buy your own from supermarket if desperate or walk down to privilege lounge and find branded drinks beers wine and cava fruit and snacks but only for privilege guests .
The privilege lounge has 2 free usage computers for guests but in spanish off course . Only downside was the rooms aircon never worked and could be a little uncomfortable and stuffy . Outside has plenty of beds for sunning with a cooling breeze but its only dowside 90% of beds in shade until 1 pm and no service for guests ........... help yourself . Any drinks from here not allowed out of the lounge except water and anything you could smuggle !!
Buffet....Great breakfast choice but missed granola . Fresh orange if you asked for it but payable if not privilege and cava for all . At lunch and evening food was good but very often could have been hotter . Chips daily and sometimes needing a little longer to fry . Who likes raw chips . Once my fish needed longer cooking but could happen anywhere . Pizza always cold and soup lacked flavour but show cooking very good . Fish dishes were good but often repeated but no sign of salmon . No red cheese during the week . Queues were short and generally well organised . All guests had a drinks bill ticket which you signed befor you get a table or any drinks !!
La Vita è Bella Restaurant available for all guests but payable to some guests. Breakfast was good but could do better whilst sweet (past its best) bacon was not good . No choice of brown bread for toast , cold baked beens no fried bread or mushroom option and service sometimes slow . One evening we waited 20 minute to get drinks , the soup was cold , and main dish under-cooked and no vegetables . Very poor for a la carte . Another couple had the same problem and even back-chat from a head waitress !! Best thing was probably the wine but at less than 4 euros at the supermarket who`s complaining .
Spa expensive and its plunge pools were nice but not salted . Very cheap and tacky plastic hair bags provided but not unforced and would be better with a cloth hat instead. There is even a bucket challenge ..
Outside pools were heated but one was out of bounds for some reason -- maybe maintenance . Private area for privilege guests to small and pool lounge areas quite crampted
Evening stuff was ok ish . Maybe a little low budget and lacked a real animation team. Piano bar was good with plenty of seating areas. Late check out available with no charge and all usage of our board status at no extra cost .. good
hotel is well situated close to beech shops and all in all a good relaxing holiday . Value for money.......... not totally sure .Maybe not
Probably return if food is "quoted" to be hotter and the jacuzzi suite is available and not booked 18 months in advance and the staff in certain areas have some teaching and the rooms have free wifi
Mrs D also comments that the meet dishes were all good especially duck , steak and as usual ice-cream . No fresh mackerel or rabbit or stawberries . By all accounts sangria was extra !!More

Just done 10 days at this hotel, had a great time, room was adequate with all facilities, bed was too short for me as I am 6'3" but that's not their fault. Food is absolutely fantastic, if anyone can complain or not find plenty that they like then they are looking for millionair's paradice.
The drinks package is great you can choose your gin and then choose your tonic, which is out of a bottle, so Gordon's with schwepps, ice and a twist is soooo refreshing and good. Only got bottles or draught larger, no actual beer which will upset some brits, but that's OK.
Lots of French, Germans, Swedish and Italians, but good for them most can speak God's language.
Try the Italian restaurant, it's fantastic quisine and not at all like some of the themed restaurants, certanly worth a visit.
Well worth going all inclusive as the drinks are slightly expensive, but that's your choice.
The restaurant at night confirms that men must wear long trousers and at least look the part, but I am afraid that this rule is not adhered to and a lot go in like they are going to the beach, which does lower the tone when you are in a good expensive four star Hotel, when I questioned the head waiter he said they relax the rule in summer, thought it was always summer in Tenerife.
Another good thing is that you are not allowed to save sunbeds, ha ha, this is always the case, but invariably is ignored, do so at your peril at this Hotel, each morning we sat on our selected sunbeds and was entertained by the pool attendant removing towels etc that were on unoccupied sunbeds, they soon got the message and first time we have seen this rule enforced and what a difference it made, no more up at 7.0am to reserve a sunbeds and then go out for the morning and not use it.
Enertainment throughout the day was organised and good even if only being a spectator, evening was varied and very good on outside stage so not too hot to enjoy.
Waiters, whether in the restaurant or in the bar, work their socks off and are always helpful, even under some very trying situations with ignorant holiday makers.
For us the Hotel was too large and a little too impersonal, but we chose it and had a great time and it's worth a visit.
Love the H10 chain, 2nd one we have been in and will look for them for our next holiday.
one of the best hotels
we returned from this hotel last Friday what a wonderful hotel so clean and big, the interior was wonderful all marble and white leather chairs glamour at its best, the staff were wonderful so pleasant and helpful we got a sea view room on the 5th floor perfect, night entertainment was very good but wish it went on longer, loved the foam party around the pool. can't wait to go backMore
Great hotel with an excellent pool and the food met our expectations. As a traveler from Canada who's normal travel destinations are in the Caribbean this hotel was top notch due to the lack of a beach this is compensated by the grounds and pool areas. I would recommend this hotel to friends if they are traveling to this area. Loved the Tenerife area much more then the local areas of say Cuba or Dominican Republic. More

Stayed between the 29th of August and 12th of September. Arrived around 9pm. Staff at reception were very good and efficient and smiled while dealing with us. Our room (166) was a corner room on the right hand side on floor one overlooking the pool. Large room with good sized bathroom, good sized wardrobe, small fridge and 2 bedside cabinets. There was a dressing table in one corner (no mirror) although a large full length one was on the wall nearby. Was a little disappointed with the balcony being small and feeling enclosed, but realised after a few days it was actually a good balcony. Private and didn't get the glaring sun all day. Air con worked but could have been better.
Maid service was good, clean and efficient. Always said hello and worked with a smile.
We were half board. I liked that you could swap the evening meal for a lunchtime meal if you let them know before 1pm. Good selection of food and breakfast was good.
The girls in customer services were excellent. While out of our room a worker came in to paint the ceiling of the balcony. He got some paint on some trousers left out. Instead of leaving them, he sponged them clean and informed customer services. We would have been unaware had a note not been left in the room. Customer services offered to launder the trousers. We said not to bother and to thank the worker for his honesty. This resulted in some free spa tickets.
On the whole a good hotel, close to all amenities, clean, comfortable, nice pool (which doesn't give you frost bite when you get in, but is just the right temperature to cool you down). You cannot reserve sunbeds before 9am, if you do, your towels are removed by security. Empty sunbeds are monitored throughout the day by the lifeguards and if towels are left for an unreasonable amount of time they are removed. The staff throughout the hotel are very customer focused and nothing is too much trouble. Reception staff are good and the girls in customer relations are excellent.
If you want a late check out, get your name down on the list on arrival, they are allocated first come first served on departure day, visit reception early on departure day, the higher up the list the better chance you have.More
