Marylanza Suites & Spa Resort  

This hotel turns heads with its duo of pools, a gourmet restaurant, and the beach in walking distance.

The hotel has secured a great postcode, with the beach, Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas all around 15-minutes’ walk away. Plus some of the rooms look out on a golf course.

There are two pools, including one with in-water seats. Food-wise, the talking point is a restaurant serving gourmet cuisine. Meanwhile, tribute acts make a big impression in the evenings.

Exceeded our expectations

We stayed for two weeks in July as a family of 3 adults and one child. We changed our holiday to Tenerife as we usually visit Sharm but this was cancelled, so we were unsure as to whether we would like Tenerife. Upon arrival we were told that we were upgraded to a golf view room which was lovely. It had a separate bedroom with two beds pushed together, and two sofa beds in the lounge area. These sofa beds were absolutely fine, we as adults slept on them. There is a kitchen area with microwave, hob and fridge and a breakfast bar. After staying in all inclusive resorts I was taken aback that we had to pay for the safe, hire the pool towels and was only provided with one bottle of water for the whole 2 weeks which we had to refill. The staff at this resort are a credit to the hotel. Really nice and friendly especially Sandra which worked at breakfast time in the restaurant and at the pool bar. The food was very good. My son is very fussy and he found lots to eat throughout our stay. Breakfast time there is bacon, sausage, beans etc and the egg station. The toaster was a bit bizarre, instead of the usual conveyor belt style it was on a spinning disc which took an enternity. We usually at lunch at the pool bar which had toasties, pizza, burgers, pasta and chicken. Evening meal in the restaurant was of good quality with the occasional themed nights. Entertainment consisted of bingo which was free and you would win a caricature followed by an act which could be a singer, magician, show or parrot on a bike!! There are 3 pools which are quite small and very cold. If you get a few people in there playing with balls you are on top of each other. A few days into our holiday my son decided to join us and the hotel were very helpful to accommodate this and we were able to change rooms to a two bedroomed suite. This was the same as the standard room but had an upstairs loft style bedroom with a separate bathroom which was great. As for the area, outside the hotel there isn't much, just across the road there is a supermarket with a few clothes shops. If you walk one way it is about 20 mins to los cristianos or about 10 mins the other way is las Americas. Both have a great variety of shops, bars and restaurants. We had a meal at the Taurus Argentinian Steakhouse in los cristianos which was superb definitely recommend it. To sum up really did like Tenerife, the climate, the promenade, shops, bars etc and the hotel was better than what we thought. If it was a bit closer to the action with larger pools that would be fantastic.More

Susan E,

Fantastic 10 day holiday at the Marylanza, 26th July to 5th August 2016

The Holiday: We booked an all inclusive holiday for 10 days at the Marylanza via Thomson. The Trip: After our 4 hour flight from Manchester to Tenerife south airport, we transferred to the Marylanza which takes about 25 - 30 mins with the coach dropping travellers off at 3 other hotels before reaching the Marylanza which is quite good compared to other transfers that we've experienced. The coaches are air conditioned making for a comfortable journey. The Location: The Marylanza is not actually located in Playa de las Americas as advertised, it is actually based in San Miguel a small area in between Los Christianos and Playa de las Americas. This is actually ideal as it's perfect for reaching either town. To get into Los Christianos town centre and to the nearest beach from the outside of the hotel you need to cross the road, keep going straight ahead following the footpath through a grove of trees, cross the next road and enter a small park. Walk through the park and cross over the road. Follow this road until you get to a T junction and turn left. On your left hand side is a great supermarket stocking everything you might need to buy (snacks, drinks, toiletries etc.) Turn right and through a car park and then turn left down some steps. At the bottom follow the footpath down the hill and then turn left to get to the beach, restaurants and shops. This walk takes no more than 10 mins walking at a steady pace. Slightly to the left is a McDonalds which was unexpected but it is quite a nice on and serves excellent coffee. Our son was desperate for a Big Mac meal so we relented on the last day of our stay. The Hotel: The hotel is very well maintained, clean and modern. Enter the main doors and the reception is straight head and just to the left. To the left of reception is a corridor with access to toilets, a luggage room and the bar where the live entertainment is held each night. To the right of reception is a bar offering free drinks and snacks to all inclusive guests. Behind reception is the tasting restaurant at which each guest is entitled to one sitting from the taster menu per visit. We didn't eat here but we did hear from others that did that the food was excellent but probably not simple enough for small children. Also behind reception and down a small corridor is a small entertainment section with 2 PCs and an X-Box with a few games to play. You need to pay 2 EUROS to get sufficient time for a game of Fifa. Upon arrival the check in process is very simple and efficiently handled. All inclusive customers are given a coloured wrist band so that you can access all of the amenities (green for adults and blue for children). Our son accidentally snapped off his wrist band and the hotel were more than pleased to replace it for us. The Room: The rooms are organized in a series of linked blocks that join to form an oblong shape which surround the 3 swimming pools, recreation area and pool bar. Our room was in Genaro block (G Block) and we stayed in room G-214 which is located on the second floor of the hotel. Our room was quite spacious with a living room area complete with couch and single bed for our son and also incorporated a small kitchen area with breakfast bar and stools, hob with 2 electric rings, combo microwave oven and a fridge. This was excellent to have in our room as we still like to by in some of our own food and drinks for snacks even when going all inclusive. Both our bedroom and the living were air conditioned with fairly quiet units compared to most hotels and both room had a modern Samsung LED TV in them which was very nice to have. As to be expected most of the channels are Spanish but you do get BBC 1 and 2, ITV, Channel 4 and BBC news. Our bed was extremely comfortable and we have never slept to well in a hotel before. In fact I only had 4hrs sleep last night having arrived home at 3:30AM but I still feel fresh due to the 10nights of uninterrupted sleep. Both rooms had black also had black out blinds which makes a big difference. The room had 2 patio style windows that opened up onto a double balcony veranda which had a table and four chairs and 2 sun loungers. The balcony overlooked the front of the hotel with views of mountains and the town ahead and to the left. On the opposite side of the hotel the rooms overlook the golf course which was really stunning to see with lots of green grass and palm trees. Our room was cleaned to an immaculate standard each day by the very hard working and pleasant staff. The Main Restaurant and Food: The main restaurant is located at the top of the hotel inner courtyard just to the left of the green pool and down a small ramp. The place is well laid out with plenty of seating available for all guests. The food was overall very well prepared and varied with different meat and fish dishes served for lunch and dinner each day. Each night there is a different theme including oriental, Italian, Canarian etc. The salad bar was very well stocked with a range of salad vegetables, cheeses and sliced meats. Behind the main preparation counter there are 2-3 chefs preparing freshly grilled chicken, fish and steaks each night. There is also always a roast joint on this section such as pork beef or Turkey. The kids are also well catered for with a section providing plain pasta and sauces, chicken nuggets and fries ( the fries are excellent) and Pizza. Breakfast is similarly well stocked and varied. The pool bars is stocked with salad, meats and cheeses, Pizza and fast food (burgers, hot dogs, fries, chicken nuggets etc.) All good quality. It would have been nice to be able to get crisps (potato chips) as part of the all inclusive deal. Overall we thought the food was very good and the restaurant excellent. These could be made even better if the following changes were considered by the management; vegetables to be cooked for less time so they were more crisp rather than soft, oven baked fish (Hake) tended to be too dry to eat so this method needs adjusting (less time, partially cover in foil etc.), more variety for the deserts (less sponge and cream based deserts replaced by Tiramisu, cheese cakes etc.). The ice cream available was small tubs of nestle, this would be better replaced by an ice cream section of multiple flavours offering toppings and sauces as we've experienced in other similar standard hotels. The Staff: In all our years of travelling and staying in hotels we haven't come across such a lovely, friendly hard working staff as the one based at the Marylanza before. From the room maids, to the reception staff, bar staff and waiters each person was very helpful, cheerful, hard working and only too happy to help the guests wherever possible. This is the standard that all hotels should aim to achieve and creates a welcoming friendly atmosphere from the moment you arrive. The Weather: The weather in Tenerife in July and August is like the very best of the British summer but constantly. We experienced temperatures from 25 to 30degC most days with the last day warming up to 40degC. Generally the island is cooled slightly by a gently breeze (the Trade Wind) which helps keep the temperature between 25 and 30degC which is perfect for most British travelers. Overall Summary: An excellent holiday was enjoyed by the whole family at a very well run, clean and friendly hotel which offered very good food and was run by a hard working and friendly staff. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in the sun.More

Almost 4 star

My husband, myself and 2 daughters aged 18 and 21 have just returned from a weeks holiday staying at the Marylanza. We were very pleased on arrival to have been upgraded to a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom suite overlooking the golf course. The suite was over two floors but to access to upstairs was up some very steep wooden stairs. The rooms were very clean but the beds were very hard and the sheets seemed scratchy. The only shampoo/shower gel was in a dispenser on the wall. The only real negative was having to pay 18 euros for a safe which I would not expect to have to do at a 4 star hotel! The food was fine- plenty of choice and different meats/fish cooked fresh every night which were really good. The wine was self service in the restaurant through a tap which was a typical house wine and cava which was very nice. Water could be obtained through a water cooler but this was never really chilled. We discovered it was much better out of the machine that distributed fruit juices. This was the same at the pool bar. We had to set our alarm early to ensure decent sun beds and a parasol. The lifeguard did come round at about 9am to remove any unoccupied towels from beds. The actual sun beds were not very comfortable and several of them were broken. To save taking your own towels, you can hire towels from hotel for a 5 euro deposit which you get back and you can have clean ones every day which I wish I had known before. There are 3 pools. A small children's pool and 2 other larger pools. Both the larger pools were used by very noisy and splashy children and I think it would have been better to keep one as adults only We wanted to go on a couple of trips but the Thomson Rep said that the 4x4 ride with camel trip was full. We googled Tenerife excursions and booked a trip to the camel park direct which was much cheaper. We also booked a 3 hour trip on a catamaran which included being picked up and dropped off at our hotel and was cheaper than the thomson trip. A word of warning- The sea was quite rough and several people were sea sick! We only watched the evening entertainment once as we went for a walk every evening. On the last night we found some great shops and a dancing fountain in the middle of Las Americas. There were lots of bars and restaurants in the area if you wanted to try somewhere other than the hotel. Overall we had a lovely holiday but I think next time I will book an adults only hotel.More

Nice hotel, nothing special.

So I don't usually write reviews - they can be misleading but I felt I compelled to write this considering this was my first time booked into a Thomson Platinum hotel. Don't be fooled by this rating - it's a very nice 4star hotel but nothing more. When I arrived at the hotel it was 9:20pm I was quickly informed that I could put my luggage in the luggage room and go grab a bite to eat and after travelling for nearly 8hrs it was appreciated. I was met at the restaurant by the restaurant manager who checked his watch and waved his finger in a negative manner! All you need arriving at your home for the next week! The hotel is nice and generally the hotel staff are polite and hard working. I appreciate it was peak time that I chose for my holiday but there aren't enough sun beds to cater for the amount of holiday makers there, although towels that reserved beds were removed by staff after a period of time. The food was ok, but even after a week it seemed a little repetitive so we chose to eat out a couple times. I booked into the A La Carte restaurant expecting big things - 'Gourmet' it's billed as! The food is again ok - nothing I couldn't cook at home. A bit of smoked salmon and lettuce for starters followed by tough and over cooked cod fillet. The main was a lamb rib chop dish which whilst nice was again over cooked. Lamb should be pink! The desert was delicious though! The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished and were cleaned on a daily basis but to my astonishment on the third night I found my bed sheet has been replaced with a very warm towelling sheet! Not what you need when the air conditioning in the rooms isn't that good - I found if you left this on all day it made for a comfortable nights sleep! We had a nice room that backs on to the golf course and half of the terrace is tiled and the other half consists of a nice palm tree and volcanic pebbles which also acted as a cat litter tray to the stray cats in the area - consequently the patio smelt. It was a nice surprise to find a bottle of Rioja left by the hotel on my birthday which was a nice touch. The main bar area can become crowded and again there's a lack of seats and so you can imagine my surprise to find there was actually another room/ bar with more seating which was only opened on the third day of my holiday! I'm not sure why the hotel charges for the use of the safe - it's €18 a week which I find is an insult, if they can't guarantee the safety of your belongings then this should be free. It is after all All Inclusive! A bottle of water was left in the fridge upon arrival but never replenished and the only water in the hotel was from water machines which always dispensed warm water due to the frequent usage. So whilst I had a nice break I feel the 'Platinum' rating is given out too cheaply for this hotel. I've stopped in far better 4 and even 3 star hotels so I doubt if I'd return. I look forward to the managers defensive reply - if only he cared about his holiday makers as much as he did the Spanish wedding party which they catered for I'm sure there would be more positive reviews! This hotel does have the potential to be great but lacks in little touches. More


A wonderful Holiday!!

What a wonderful 10 days. I'll break it down into parts: Before arrival - I emailed the Marylanza ahead of us coming out with a few queries about our stay. I received a rapid and lovely response to my questions and it made us feel welcome before we'd even arrived. My parents had very kindly paid for our holiday as it had been a tough few years and we hadn't been abroad for many many years..we asked for instance, if they may visit us (as they were staying in the next town) during our stay so we could show them around (and they could see what they had paid for!). The hotel offered a reasonably priced pay for a day all inclusive package and reception were really polite and as equally welcoming to my parents as they were to us. The Hotel - beautifully landscaped and meticulously clean. I regularly saw railings, wall sills, windows etc being cleaned. Constant sweeping, so not even a dropped leaf is missed. Well done to these hard working staff. The food - A good quality and great tasting food range with just enough of a menu change to keep us satisfied in the main buffet restaurant. The pool/snack bar had the same each day but that's what you would expect from any pool/snack bar; a mix of burgers, pizza, salad, fruit, sausages, cold meats. The rooms - meticulously clean again, towels changed daily, everything cleaned. Nothing seemed to much trouble if we requested anything from house keeping. The staff - wonderful! So friendly and welcoming. The bar staff in particular were fantastic, especially Ivan and Diane. The pools - my only complaint really (though not of the hotel), to ensure a decent spot with enough beds for most of the family, we had to get up and out by 7.15am! We of course, stayed with our sunbeds (we were exhausted!) but many beds were reserved from that early on and then people would then leave for breakfast or to return to their rooms. The life guards would come and remove any left towels around 9.30 but by then most of the beds would be pretty much gone anyway, so it can be chancy to leave it too late. This is not the fault of the hotel, This happens everywhere I've been in peak summer holiday period! We didn't really watch any entertainment as we prefer to go out most evenings but they had a great guy singing/guitar on the Sunday night. Overall we were so impressed by the Marylanza and their staff and we are trying hard to save for a return hopefully next year! Thank you for a fabulous holiday! More
