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.

Just come back from a weeks stay at this hotel. Has a lovely chilled out week. Was 7 years when we were last there and it's still as good. Don't understand why people have put negative comments. Couldn't fault anything. Always found something to eat the staff were friendly and helpful. They seemed to work long hours and were always busy clearing tables. Rooms were always lovely and clean as was all the hotel and grounds. Spa was lovely had a nice massage while I was there. We can't wait to go back. Plus the weather was also kind to us. We find the location of the hotel very good.More
Good and Bad
Hotel was very good, clean and nice rooms. The food was not brilliant. They tried to have themed nights, however the BBQ evening was terrible. The food was dry and the service terrible. The salads on the buffet were very good and we ended up eating those instead of the main dishes. The entertainment was so bad. We were so looking forward to Michael Jackson. He came on at 10.15 pm, did not sing one note and did his interpretation of a moon walk back and forth. He went off at 10.45pm, then again half of the people had left by then. We found a shopping centre around the corner and they had fantastic entertainment. 3 different acts per day and we never saw a bad one yet. This hotel is excellent for wheelchair users. It only has two floors and I was impressed.More
Another lovely holiday at La Siesta
We arrived home from our holiday last night. We have had a lovely two weeks staying at La Siesta. This was our sixth visit to the hotel and we are booked to go again next March. On arrival, we were met by a smiling receptionist and the check-in went smoothly. We paid for a Club Alexandre room as we like the pool view and also the use of the spa. The staff were friendly and polite (all except one member of the bar staff, who I witnessed being very rude to a customer). He was the exception so don't let this put you off. The food was good, especially the salad bar. There was something for everyone and we had no trouble finding a table but did notice that the hotel was becoming busier towards the end of our holiday and on the last day had to queue for a table at breakfast time, but not for long. I was disappointment that the hotel do not enforce the 'no shorts or beachwear to be worn at dinner' rule. I do not want to be confronted by bare, sweaty, hairy arms and legs at dinner! Most people do make an effort to be dressed appropriately. The rooms are a good size and cleaned everyday. The hotel grounds are immaculate and the public areas also are clean. The sunbeds are chained up until 9.30am, which gives everybody a chance, but I did notice some people decided to 'mark their territory' by draping their towels through the spokes of the parasols whilst the pool area was being cleaned. This should not be allowed before 9.30am. Overall, we had a lovely holiday and would recommend La Siesta without hesitation.More

Returned home last night from a week away. Good fast check-in .. our room was allocated facing the pool down a long corridor. We paid for the pool view which is a good idea as some of the rooms faced a rather dark looking walkway between hotels.. The rooms are spacious and very clean. 2 single beds to make the bug double. Pillows a narrow long n flat ~ not very comfy. Requested another pair and this seemed to help slightly. Fair sized balcony. The bathroom was big with overhead shower~ good pressure with plenty hot water, Toiletries provided. Towels big but not sheet size and changed every day. Liked the tv being on a rotating base as you were able to watch from the settee [also bed settee] this was comfy. The tv channels seemed limited until we realised you could actually change the language setting for English on most of them ~ very handy. The tv also has a clock mode. The restaurant was a good size kept busy.. the food was fairly varied and you got to see what was on the menu that day. It was hot and usually could find something to suit. Never had a real problem with the food as some seem to have. Good sitting areas inside hotel and plenty sunbeds to choose ~ some were a wee bit sad looking and sagging...Some bathers used 2 at a time, which in high season could maybe pose problems. Life guard was visible he/she also dealt with the sun towels which you can 'hire'. No money passes hands the room card acts as your 'pass' for drinks food etc. they give you notice when bill comes to over 100 euros which you can pay in cash or card either during stay or at the end. The location of hotel is ideal not too far from 'the action' but quiet enough so that you don't get too much disturbance, good for wheelchair users and less able walkers..We also paid for the wifi which had a good reception, allowed access for 2 devices. Good value for the weeks stay although maybe hotel could be doing with a wee bit of an upgrade in decor this would also put the prices up..As there are a few better 4* hotels in the area. But this shouldn't put people off from staying....Some travel views do seem a tad harsh and was kinda putting us off before we traveled.More
