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 saltwater 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.

great hotel pity about the food!
WE paid extra for an Alexander room overlooking the pool. Our initial room was overlooking the pool and gardens, however was next to Main road and noisy. I called reception and the following morning we were moved to room 306, top floor and central, the best room in the hotel. There was never any rush to get a sun bed, we sat a little back from the actual pool and got a static umbrella. On occasions it was 9.30 before we put our towels down, got the same bed for two weeks. The pool area was cleaned every day and all the sun beds lifted and the entire area extensively washed at least once a week. Our bedroom was large with a balcony, sheets changed at least 2/3 times a week, however there were occasions the floor was not brushed or washed, but after calling reception it was done within an hour. Location fantastic, close to sea, shops and night life, but quiet at nights. All the staff were very friendly, especially the reception, nothing was too much problem. The dining room was spacious with plenty of space between the tables, unfortunately that's where the good news ends! The dining room appeared to be short staffed, they tried their best, but were overwhelmed during busy times. There seemed to be no one in overall charge to check when the food needed replenished, in fact serving areas were left without food until the staff were told. Side plates, spoons, bowls were always missing, people walking around in circles trying to find the necessary utensils to finish their meal. The choice of food was the poorest we have ever seen. Breakfast, bacon swimming In fat had to be dried with napkins before eating. Three tea/coffee units were positioned on only two walls, adjacent to each other which meant depending where your table was, you had a long walk carrying hot drinks dodging children along the way. Dinner, if you can call it that, would honestly take many pages to try and describe how poor it was. Fish you could bend like rubber, chicken you could not chew, turkey that was pink, (not properly cooked) just to mention a few. The pastry, which was obviously purchased from outside caterers was the same tasteless format every single night. We decided enough was enough and we gave the dining room a miss. Thank goodness there were loads of good restaurants within walking distance, made our holiday. When ordering wine or drinks at the bar we were never asked for our security room card and we could have said any room number if you wanted a cheep holiday! We asked if we could have a meal in their sister hotel (Gala Hotel) where we have stayed before, only to be told no! The Springs Hotel group in Las Americas allow you to dine in anyone of their three hotels, another disappointment. I would actually stay in the La Siesta again due to its central position, however only on Bed & Breakfast basis.More
A lovely holiday
We stayed for one weekhalf board. Both breakfast and dinner were buffet style with a wide and varied selection that would suit anyone. Reception staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. Daily and evening entertainment was enthusiastic and varied. Our bedroom and the hotel and grounds were spotless. With a handy location for the beach and shopping centres we would definitely consider returning.More

La Siesta Hotel Tenerife
We have just stayed at this hotel for 11 nights and this is the third time we have stayed there but never again. The hotel seem to have a policy of overbooking as after arriving there at 8pm we had to then go to another hotel for the first night. This was compensated by "an upgrade to a Superior room " which incidentally was exactly the same as the other rooms" and also the use of the Spa which we used but would rather not have had in the first place!! Our holiday was booked through Easy-jet Holidays.We met 12 ( yes 12 ) other people that this had happened to.As for the Wifi don't pay for it as it is useless.More

An absolutely brilliant stay!
Myself and my boyfriend stayed at La Siesta from 12th until 19th November. What a great hotel. We stayed B&B as we know Tenerife and there's so many restaurants and bars to try, we wouldn't have ever gone any other board. The staff we very welcoming and friendly, we paid for the fridge but it was stocked so that was a bonus! We had a pool view on the ground floor and it was great, roomy and comfortable. I wanted to bring the sofa and the shower home with me! The pool area was clean and there were lots of sun loungers to choose from - clearly as there were only a handful of children and teens, mainly 25 years old plus I'd say. The breakfast...well, what choice we had! Being a typical English lass, it was cooked Brekkie all the way for me, and it was lovely. There was plenty of other choice for other tastes such as bread, meat, fruit, cereal ect. It's very very close to all te shops and restaurants (if you like rock music, visit Sax just around the corner on the Patch - great service and awesome 80s hair metal and a live band every night) My aunt recommended this hotel to myself and my mother (who is currently still there with her partner) and we would recommend it to anyone. I will honestly stay there again if I head back to Las Americas :-)More
