The Hotel La Siesta is a great holiday base, thanks to its spacious rooms and large pool. There's also a buffet restaurant that plates up a globe-trotting menu. Furthermore, a central address puts Playa de Las Americas' beach, bars, and restaurants within easy reach.
Location-wise, Hotel La Siesta plays a strong hand. The sandy beach is around a 10-minute walk away, and the same time in a taxi will get you to Siam Park waterpark. Plus, it's only 5 minutes on foot to Playa de las Americas' centre and its mix of restaurants, bars and clubs.
The property is made up of, low-rise, terracotta-coloured buildings that horseshoe around a large pool. Surrounding the pool is a sun terrace, complete with thatched parasols, palms and a bridge that leads you over the water to a snack bar.
The rooms here are spacious enough to include a lounge area, and some have views of Mount Teide. On the restaurant front, a buffet venue plates up food from around the globe. This involves everything from Italian dishes, like risotto, to local Canarian fare, like mojo picon – a spicy red sauce. There's also a regular barbecue night to add to the mix.

Watch your room bill carefully!!!!
Stayed here with my disabled partner, my friend & her daughter 17/1/15- 24/1/15. I agree with many other guest reviews about this hotel. Check in very very slow...total rip off paying for a fridge and you Have to take the 25 euro drinks package. Don't mind paying for a safe. At reception they took my credit card details which I knew about, it's for if you charge anything to your room...drinks etc... Now 3 days into our holiday I got a note under my door to go to reception. They wanted me to pay my 102 euro bill...No Way!!! We supposedly had food in the restaurant, drinks with our meal, food at the pool side bar..We were on b&b tarriff...we didn't even have breakfast...it was overcast all week...we weren't at the pool....to cut a long story short the staff at reception were all a waste of space, they made me feel like a liar. This went on for 3 days, getting told to come back later...eventually I asked to speak to the manager...I got told to go speak to the restaurant manager...thankfully with my friends cool manner and attitude (as by this time I was so so angry) we got the charges taken off...No apology...and it was definitely their mistake. Another few points ...the piped in music playing all day along the corridors is annoying ....also for a 4 star hotel where are the public toilets...especially for a wheelchair user??? It's also true the hotel towels some are very very scruffy with holes in them...4 star really!! Needless to say we wouldn't come back to this hotel and I would never recommend it ever.More

Would return no problem
My Wife and I have just returned after two weeks and cannot really fault the hotel. Rooms very clean. Hotel in general spotless. Food fine you would always find something to suit. Those who criticised this hotel Should seriously be ashamed. My only negative comment would be regarding the very poor WiFi which is not cheap. (Why do any hotels charge for WiFi?)More

Ignore all the Nay-sayers who knock this super hotel.
After I had booked this hotel, my other half started to read reviews and was very despondent about our holiday prospects, especially as I had twice been to Tenerife and once to Lanzarote and disliked each trip. Arrival was good and Reception staff did their job courteously and we found our room. We are used to Asian hotels, which are superb, and still found our Alexander room very acceptable and in a colour scheme which we have just introduced in a room at home (NOT grey/beige/brown). The room was clean and fresh with a good outlook over the pool area. At bedtime, I was a little put out at finding that the bed mattress cover was an incontinence cover but this was not detrimental to sleep, touch the pillow and sleep was instant. Well named La Siesta! Charges for the use of the safe, internet and mini-bar are normal for mainland Europe and their islands, so make your choice and either pay or don't. I don't drink much alcohol so do not go All Inclusive, I pay for what I drink. This keeps headline prices cheap and, in non AI hotels, standards up. Maybe the mini bar could be a refrigerator with a 20 Euro top up of your choice instead of hotel choice, thus giving use of 'fridge. Restaurant/bar staff are absolutely superb! First night a little reserved but as they relax with you they become quite an entertainment whilst doing their jobs speedily/efficiently and with good humour. As you sit down your drinks order is taken and, as you leave your table it is reset for another party. Excellent. One waiter in particular makes every guest feel special - every mealtime. Your food choice does not have to be a pile of a mixture of everything available and the offering of meats, fish, vegetables, assorted salads, cheeses, sea foods, breads, biscuits, fruits, cakes and puddings, wines and beers offers the making of a five course meal every day. Of course the chefs create salads out of surplus vegetables and not everybody likes everything but, if you have chosen to go to Spanish territory, try their cuisine and do not lecture Spanish speaking chefs on how we present salads in Britain. Brits: are only 20% of this hotel's clientele. Food quality and preparation was excellent and I don't eat pizzas and burgers! Hotel cleaning is constantly ongoing and detailed in odd corners - very clean The newly refurbished sauna/pool suite is superb, although one shower system failed on our visit, and creates a lovely, relaxing ambience. The masseuse is excellent at sorting those knots. The hotel location could only be bettered if it were on the beach. As one exits the hotel, the beach is 5 to 6 minutes walk in any direction of 320 degrees arc, but is tucked away just enough to be quiet at night. All in all, well deserving of it's four star rating and I hope to return.More

The hotel was very clean and the pool area cleaned regularly much to the annoyance of the towels wanting to spend all day by the pool. the entertainment was good all professional no stupid animation teams trying to act & sing. The food was varied but room for improvement but for a large Hotel it was good. Staff very helpful and polite Breakfast was always busy but evening meal more relaxed Drinks were reasonable and well priced for a Hotel The only downside was the hotel had a policy of removing towels pity it was not implemented because some selfish people left towels on up to 5 sunbeds all day and never used them You guessed wrong they were mostly British If you get a room facing the pool you get the sun most of the day morning/afternoon depends on the side you are inMore
