Tucked right behind a sandy beach, this Cesar Manrique-designed hotel has a setting worth shouting about.
The adults-only Gran Tinerfe couldn’t be in a better spot. Turn one way and there’s a sandy beach. Head the other and there’s a great mix of shops, bars and restaurants.
As well as three pools and a sea-view restaurant, this place has an impressive bar – it’s up on a roof terrace and has standout sunset views.

big let down
Canteen is busy, you get bashed about when you're trying to look. Just not suitable for the amounting people it caters for. Queues for anything you want from the freshly made area,so much so you give up. Food is pretty tasteless so you don't finish it anyway. Should you need the toilet during dinner, prepare to queue again as there are oh two female and two male loos. These toilets serve the canteen the entertainment area and the privilege lounge so don't wait til.you're desperate. Same outside too, two loos each for each sex. Speaking of outside, there is no way on God's earth that pool is heated which is annoyingas it is one of the key reasons we picked this hotel. If you're privilege that doesn't mean you get free drinks outside. Drinks are served 12-4, once an hour which is no where near adequate in the heat. That's if they remember to come. When you do get it, it's hardly a thirst quenched - small.plastic beaker. So you either have to pay downstairs or traipse across to the lounge. So you decide to go back upstairs for some money and you will wait an eternity for one of the three lifts. If they are all working. You go back to your room and may take a nap or go to the loo. A few times a day you will get knocks on the door from maids. Bearing gifts which is nice but some of them knock and walk in without waiting for an answer. I have been caught naked and on the loo. Not nice. The a large carte restraurant is good for breakfast and they are the nicest staff in the hotel. Lunch and evening meals are the same menu,everyday so that can bbc e a tad repetitive. Good points. Well taxis are cheap so.you can get out of here easily and cheaply enough but then you shouldn't want to do that when you have paid so much. People in the privilege lounge said they are repeat customers who wouldn't come back as things are deteriorating even though the price is going up. I will never come back to this or any other h10. Big let down.More

Another lovely stay
We have just returned from this hotel, having visited previously. We were very warmly welcomed and it was obvious that some staff had remembered us from our previous stay. Facilities are good, we did the Privilege option, and it does provide the extras that make your holiday more special. The only downside was the chilly weather, especially in the Mirador restaurant in the evening. We needed lots of clothing layers to keep warm, some form of heating would have helped. However, the service, friendliness and professionalism of all the staff were brilliant. We will go back.More

Nice hotel, wonderful staff, nothing is too much trouble
Booked this hotel for the first time after staying elsewhere in Tenerife for the past 20 years. Chose the privilege upgrade and were not disappointed, lovely to have dedicated lounge, sun terrace & a la carte restaurant. Maria is such a lovely lady and all other staff we encountered were most helpful, especially Santiago and his staff in the Mirador restaurant. Had a very nice room on the 9th floor (had requested high floor), only adverse comment would be that the bathroom was a bit on the small side - but not a problem. All reception staff very helpful and have fluent english which was nice. Entertainment in hotel in the evening was mainly good. Excellent location for walking without involving too much in the way of steps etc.More

Nice Hotel but the food is a disappointment
The good points - really nice hotel in a good location. Near to the beach and restaurants but also quiet. Great pools and loads of sun beds so there was never a problem to find somewhere . Also the first time I have seen a hotel enforce the 'No reserving of sun beds rule' removing towels from sun beds. Great staff and lovely bedrooms. Bad points? The food. It was rarely hot and usually lukewarm. There was no system to keep food hot when it was brought out and there were microwaves to reheat your food. In the end we did as another reviewer has mentioned and went to the local restaurants even though we'd paid for half board. Best to do B & B or room only. Also when checking in, ask about the security box, pool towels and dining ticket arrangements. The check in staff didn't tell us about any of this and judging by others visits to the reception desk didn't tell others also. However, it is a nice hotel, clean well maintained and friendly staff.More
