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.

Good and needs improvement
Sat by the pool bar as I type. Read the reviews before coming and they all have merit good and bad. On the positive overall clean, safe and comfortable hotel. As most people have commented the staff are friendly and always say hello. Sunbeds are well managed and chained together till 0930hrs ish. Some are available during the day and there is no "hogging". Rooms are small and when sofa bed is extended there is not much room. Rooms tidied each day. Location is excellent right in the middle of things but yet never intruding. Entertainment well I won't dwell on this best suited to young children and the more mature adults. Lots of comments re wifi. I paid â¬25 and it worked perfectly all the time. My wife's very intermittent. Water â¬2.50 a small bottle is outrageous. 30 cent in supermarket across the road. Food, we booked knowing it was buffet style and have experienced this for years. Salad counter you can't go wrong but hot food not very nice or varied. You can see where food is recycled for days on end. No show cooking. Lamb chops are clearly mutton chops etc. Meats soaked in sauces/gravy to stop them drying out. The above applied to all meals. Finally the hotel operates a no cash system. It works well. I paid it off every day and cross referenced all transactions against the printout aided by dates and times as amounts on reception printout are not inclusive of taxes. No discrepancies however if you have teenagers be wary as I overheard some awkward family disputes regarding bar bills. Finally the hotel need to sharpen up on age restricted products. My 13 year old somehow managed to get a brandy and grenadine! Accidential maybe but I saw a couple of underage alcohol purchases.More
Excellent service + really clean hotel!!!
I stayed in this hotel for two weeks with my family ( 2 little kids wife and me) in August 2014. The staff were excellent and always happy to help,facilities were good and clean, my only small downside was the restaurant should have a few more veggy dishes and not all meat dishes as i was stuck with chips, only a few days had cheese tomato pizza. Overall excellent and a welcoming hotel i would stay in this hotel again.More

Very good for couples
I stayed at La Siesta with my wife and 2 daughters for one week at half board. We liked the look of the hotel on the Thomas Cook website and subsequently spoke to a sales rep who told us as our eldest is 13 and classed as adult, we could only go for the upgrade to one their superior Club Alexander rooms which we duly did. Upon arriving, even the receptionist made a comment of how lucky we were to have such a fantastic room.... I dread to think what the standard rooms are like as this room was tiny! The room has 2 single beds next to each other and a sofa bed. As our 2 kids fight like cat and dog, there is no way they could share the sofa bed so the missus and myself were in the sofa bed. How many hotels offer an elite exclusive room with bells and whistles but ultimately you sleep on a sofa bed? It wouldn't be fair to comment without saying the benefits of this hotel though. the location is bang on. You exit the hotel of an evening and you literally cannot decide which direction to head as you are right amongst it. Playa de las Americas is fantastic. The hotel itself is very nice, very tidy, very open with good facilities. Staff friendly. Air conditioning worked (although toilet extract did not). Great selection of food, a good tip is to get to breakfast before 9 as it got very busy. Another tip is don't buy the wifi, it only worked when it felt like it. Would love to go back to the resort. Just me and the missus- we would consider La Siesta, With all the family- Definitely not La Siesta.More

the good the bad and the ugly
the good- location, everything you need is on your doorstep from restaurants to bars shops and beaches, plus a small selection of sex shops whatever floats your boat. the bad-pool area very clean but sunbeds chained up till 9.30 am everybody hanging around like a bad smell, room 166 not a proper balcony, its ok if you are all midgets. if you like wildlife then the abundance of cockroaches will put a smile on your face. the ugly- the cost of this hotel 4* I don't think so. seriously though rooms ok if facing pool, food good varied choice with plenty to choose from. staff friendly, hotel very clean but sunbed area needs looking at as beds chained up till 9.30 also hotel operates no cash policy and on arrival you are asked for your card details this does not suit everyone as I personally like to take cash on holiday. overall our holiday was really good as you make it what you want but not sure I would call hotel 4*More
