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.

Fantastic Hotel and location
We recently stayed at La Siesta for 12 nights and were very impressed with the Hotel. We arrived during the early evening and greeted by the reception staff. We were given full details regarding the hotel and the card to our room. The room are very spacious and spotlessly clean, we had a massive double bed which was 6ft 6 wide. We noted on switching on the air con unit that it rattled, but this was rectified by the maintenance man with 15 mins of us reporting it. There is a wall safe which you pay for separately and also a mini fridge in the room. Our room 303 on the 3rd floor had a balcony and a wonderful view of Mount Teidi, I am glad that we did not have a view of the pool area, as this could be quite noisy due to day and evening entertainment, but some people might like this, but the room we had was very peaceful both day and night. We are not sit around the pool people, but the hotel had a excellent policy regarding sunbeds, so non of this business of hoilday makers creeping out in the early hours to save the sunbeds by putting their towels on them. Every evening all the sunbeds are stacked up and locked up until 09:30. The entire pool area is thoroughly cleaned, the sunbeds are then unlocked and put around the pool. The Restaurant is extremely well run and there were so many dishes to choose from both at breakfast and in the evening, we were spoilt for choice and again everything is spotlessly clean. The restaurant has a no payment policy for drinks within, you pay for these at the end of your holiday when checking out. You are given a receipt for everything you have at the hotel, so make a point of keeping them so that you know exactly what you have had. There is a lovely bar area both within the Hotel and outside. The evening entertainment may not suit everyone, some show were very good and others we did not bother with, but who wants to stay in the hotel evening night when there are so many other restaurants and live music bars nearby. If you go to the hotel, then please make a point of visiting the SPA, we had it too ourselves for nearly three hours and it was heaven. I also noted that the hotel catered very well for persons with disabilities with access to all areas. The location of the hotel is ideal, less than 5 mins to the sea, there are loads of shops nearby, l holiday shops, supermarkets and designer shops, so something for everyone. There is a taxi spot outside the hotel and just around the corner is the Best Tenerife Hotel, this is where all the coach trips pick up from so really handy. We went to Loro Parque which I would thoroughly recommend and we also went on a sunset cruise on a catamaran, ideal trip if you are there with your partner as very romantic. If you have heard about the nightclubs in Play del Americas, then there is no concern about this if you stay at La Siesta, as the clubs are a good 15 minutes away so you heard nothing. I would also recommend two other night time venues Papayago and Monkey Beach. So to sum up you will have a very good holiday at La Siesta Hotel and I would like to thank all the staff at the hotel who made our holiday very enjoyable.More

We stayed for 11 nights at the end of August, 2 adults, 2 kids. After reading other reviews we weren't expecting this hotel to be as good as it was. It wasn't perfect, the food was one of the worst things for us, good quality however didn't really seem to cater for English people and not really for the kiddies. There was plenty of choice and we did find something every time, just not as good as we have had in the past at other places...The hotel itself is great, and in a great location, not noisy at all, easy to get to all the surrounding shops/nightlife and beach, it looks smart, rooms are nice size. We had a pool view from the 3rd floor so could see all that was happening. Yes we had to pay 2 euros per day for the safe and the fridge was 25 euros total but it was stocked with drinks in that price. Dont think they should charge extra for the safe, it should be included with a 4* hotel. One complaint about the cleanliness is that the cleaners only seem to clean the seat/top of the toilets, apart from that it was pretty clean. Great list of activities with the entertainment/activity staff, really enjoyed those, the staff Kristina & Calani were really nice made everything fun. There were shows every night most of which were good. One more complaint is that we were charged adult prices for our 12 & 13 year old to stay there however when it came to the spa they were suddenly children again and not allowed to enter the indoor pool. All in all we would go there again.More

Best Holiday Ever!!!
Stayed here end of August start of September for 10 days. Took our 2 year old son, and the hotel had everything he needed. Pool was big and splash pool was great for kids, cleaned every day. Always plenty of sun loungers. On the days the heat was too much for our son there was a great kids soft play and arcade indoors which he loved. There was also a play park outside if he got fed up with the pool. Rooms were nice, maids scrubbed them everyday. We were bed and breakfast but wish we went full board as breakfast buffet was brilliant and dinner looked lovely. Food at pool bar also great. The staff at the hotel were always helpful, friendly and made the kids laugh. The hotel had a very extensive entertainment programme through the day and great shows at night. If you haven't got kids the pool is relaxing and indoor gym and spa looked excellent. Hotel is situated 5mins from beaches, right next to countless restaurants, bars and shops so you are never a far walk from anything. Overall the holiday was perfect 10 out of 10 and we will be booking up in the next week or so for next year, can't wait!!More

Going downhill at La Siesta
The family ( 16 in total stayed here for the 2nd year after a great time last year. Big mistake. The staff dont have any customer focus and were actually unhelpful when trying to upgrade some rooms. It is all very rushed now here and the food quality is awful and not hot enough. The entertainment too is woeful with one night the professional water acrobat show a particular flop.The pool doesnt open until 10am and the bar even later. Water in the dining room is extrortionate and needed because there is no aircon. No we didnt complain as we found enough around the area to keep us happy but we will never return here. Location is good and the rooms decent enough. I suggest a review on how to put customers first esp at the reception desk.The wifi is awful too.More
