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.

We stayed at La Siesta from March 24-April 1st. Our stay really was fantastic. The ONLY criticism I would give the hotel, and what keeps them from getting a perfect score, is the hotel room decor desperately needs updating and new pillows/mattresses. Sleeping was miserable- but who goes to Tenerife to sleep anyway?! ;) Outside the rooms (common areas, pool, restaurant, ect) are lovely. The hotel had loads of activities, decent food (breakfast was fantastic) and the staff was top notch. Honestly, we didn't take advantage of all the activities as much as we should have because the location was so great we were walking to the beach and enjoying the area every day. We never had issues getting a sun bed, there were always some available. Bar prices were a bit high, but that's how they make their money. I also was not a big fan of the girls selling make up in the front lobby but they are nice and not too pushy. All in all, my children had a blast as did my husband and I. We would love to return.More

I just don't get the negative reviews
Stayed for 1 week from 28th March 2015 with my wife and 2 boys, aged 9 & 6 This hotel was almost everything that we expected of it, good location, nice Alexandre room overlooking the pool, my wife used the inclusive spa pass 4 days out of 7 & really enjoyed it, the food was good, something for everyone each day. The daytime kids entertainers & activities were 1st class, they were a credit to the hotel, the evening entertainment was also good (didn't see all of them though) The only negative was after 3 days the lifeguard decided that the kids could not take balls & inflatables into the pool, so the pool was empty for long periods, a few people including myself asked if a bit of common sense could be applied but got nowhere........such a shame as if was safe enough when we played with them at the start of the week All in all a excellent hotel & we Will be returning next year...........for the right price!!!! Some peoples are ever happy though, if you are expecting a 5 star hotel, go and pay 5 star prices, this hotel is spot on for what it is expected to beMore

My husband and I stayed at La Siesta from 4 to 18 March 2015. It was our seventh visit and once again we had a lovely time. The hotel is ideally situated for restaurants, bars, shopping and beach. We booked a Club Alexandre room, which gives you a pool view and entry to the spa. On arrival, we were greeted by a very pleasant member of staff and check-in was quick and efficient. I had emailed the hotel a couple of weeks before our stay requesting, if possible, to have room 208, which we stayed in last December 2014, or one in the same block. We were given room 205, which was great. The rooms are spacious and clean and towels are changed whenever you place them in the bath. I had also mentioned that my husband would be celebrating his 70th birthday that week and a bottle of sparkling wine was waiting for us. In fact, it was delivered as soon as we checked in because the ice was still frozen solid. We were on a half-board basis and found the food to be as good as ever. The hotel caters for many nationalities and does a good job in providing something for everyone. It is always interesting to try different cuisines and we were not disappointed. The breakfasts are wonderful, with different breads, cereals (even porridge), fruits, cold meats and cheeses and, of course, the 'full English' option. At dinner the salad bar is wonderful and the hot options very varied. The waiting staff are excellent and always pleasant and helpful. The pool situation is still a little chaotic. The sunbeds (which are looking shabby) are chained up until approximately 9.30am, which is a good idea, but from our balcony we watched people standing near the parasol of their choice waiting for the releasing of the beds. Some even draped their towels through the spokes of the parasols and then left to have their breakfast. This all went on whilst the staff were trying to clean the pool area. Why not block the entrances to the pool until the beds are unchained? Of course, you will still get some people camping out but it may deter others. The credit card system works well for us and we have never been charged for something we have never had. I keep all of my receipts and total them up before checking out. They are always correct to the last cent. Once again, we recommend this hotel unreservedly and thank all the staff for making our holiday such a success.More

Good hotel, great location
We travelled here from 22 to 29 March - chose the hotel for its good location to shops, bars and seafront promenade. Room was large, clean and had everything you need. We were on the ground floor (and I did miss not having a view) but we had our own large private terrace with our own sunbeds so it was lovely to be able to sit/lie out in private without having to go through the scramble for sunbeds. Only downside to the room is there are no tea/coffee making facilities. I really wish I'd taken my travel kettle - was dying for a decent cup of tea by the end of the week. Hardly anywhere sells cups of tea though coffee is in abundance (but I don't drink coffee!) Tea available at breakfast only and that wasn't up to much. Food was fine - plenty of choice - and the salad bar was good. Only thing lacking for me was a choice of hot vegetables to go with all the decent hot choices - one night there was just spinach. We had half board (as it was a negligible amount more on the holiday price than paying for just b&b) and swapped dinner for lunch on a few occasions so we could eat out in the evening. Annoying that you couldn't get tea or coffee with lunch or dinner - you had to go to the bar and pay extra for it. Even a small bottle of water is 2â¬. Ridiculous price for renting a safe - should just be a refundable deposit. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful - asked for an extra pillow and got it very quickly. Rooms were larger than most hotels with larger than normal singles pushed together, a large sofa with coffee table plus a table and chairs. Had air-conditioning which you can control and set yourself although we didn't need to use it in March. I didn't like using the shower within the bath as you had to enter at the sloping end (the screen couldn't be moved out of the way), it was very narrow and very slippy. It was also awkward getting in and out for me - I had a hip operation last year so others, plus more elderly people, could find this difficult. We were told hotel was full but it never felt busy, even at meal times, and the pool area always looked like they could fit more sunbeds in. However, unlike most people, this is not what we come on holiday for so we didn't join in the rush for sunbeds and just lie there all day. Just too boring for me. Prefer to get out and walk about, see the place etc. We did use the spa one day - 15â¬ for both of us for the day and you could go back as many times as you wanted. I went twice and spent at least an hour there both times. I really liked it. Don't know about the wifi - we deliberately didn't take mobile phones or tablets as we wanted to get away from technology for the week (unusual I know!) Plenty to see and do nearby - loads of shops and tons of bars and restaurants so would suit most people. If you like the beach head past the Hard Rock CafÃ© going towards Los Cristianos direction - they are sandy and much more attractive that way, rather than going towards Costa Adeje. I'd stay again, purely for the great location, decent food and clean rooms. But definitely take tea bags and a kettle!!More

As regular visitors to tenerife we were well aware of this hotel and had previously scouted it as a potential venue a couple of years back but as there seemed to be a lot of kids we had never stayed preferring the hotels in the mare nostrum resort or guyarmena if in that area. We gave it a try for the first time last week of March and have to say found the hotel acceptable. It may not compare in 4 star rating to some of the newer hotels but generally the hotel is kept very clean, particularly the pool area which is hosed down each morning before the sun beds go out. A little quirky that they keep the sun beds chained up whilst this is going on and then unchain them to allow the waiting masses to help themselves. Wasn't sure of this on the first day but then found it ok as you knew if you were down at around 9.20 most days you were going to get a sun bed rather than have to get up at the crack of dawn as you have to do in some places to compete with the invisible towel drapers who populate these hotels. The sun beds however are in very poor condition and really let the hotel down, broken tatty and very uncomfortable and do not do the hotel any favours when hoping for repeat business. Found the staff friendly but there did not seem to be enough of them although the hotel was busy. We were half board, unusual for us as we prefer bed and breakfast as there are many decent restaurants to chose from within a short walk. Hotel were happy to accomodate our request to swap for lunch which allowed us to eat out in the evening. Lunches provided a good range of cold salads with a freshly cooked hot option if required. Strangely no hot drinks but waiter will serve cold drinks which are chargeable although reasonably priced for a hotel. Rooms are clean but maids seem to have too many to do so don't expect the floors to be brushed or washed regularly. Some of the furniture in the rooms becoming a little dated but rooms are decent size. Poor that they feel the need to charge a half a euro a day for the pool towels, as they purport to be 4* these really should be provided foc for guests. 2.50 euros a day for safe is consistent with other hotels but I do find it's annoying.breakfast was the usual buffet affair and acceptable quality although gets busy between 9.30 and 10 as a direct result of the stampede from the pool of the people who have claimed there sunbed after waiting for the daily unchaining ritual.usual hotel Spanish style entertainment in the evenings cabaret style, not to my taste to make me stay in to watch as there are many bars around who have various more appealing acts but they at least put something on to suit guests who prefer to stay in of an evening rather than venture out. Would we stay again, yes, although would not give the hotel a rave review It is generally comfortable and in a very good locationMore
