Returning again in May.
Travel operator: Castle Harbour
Hotel tip: Highly recommend poolside bar, excellent food!!
The pool is warm and staff cannot do enough for you. If you want a restful and relaxing holiday you can’t go wrong. Not too many children in the winter time. Had a meal at night in restaurant and it was lovely and plenty of it.
Tenerife clings to the side off a volcano, so I always expect a steep hill, so I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the average one in ten incline from the town and beach, even my 10 year old did not complain,in all honesty its a ten minute walk, but only a couple to a string of shops and places to eat, with a small super market 20 metres from the pool exit.
The staff were exactly what you hope to expect on a holiday with our room being cleaned twice in the week we were there, the real gem is the whole complex is run and owned by individual, manly British owners, and these guys so want to make your stay as cheap and enjoyable as possible, get chatting to them. We were slightly out of season but still pool and bar events were going on.
What else can I say, going back there at Easter.
As I said above, all apartments are privately owned and vary in standard, we had one of the worst there was told that by some owners we met. It was definitely three star, I have stayed in five star in the past, and if you lucky-er than us you may end up in a easy 4 star place at castle harbour.
The food in the restaurant is pretty good and reasonable prices.
It does have a small hill but its not too bad. The staff were friendly and always cheerful and there was always a lifegaurd on.
There is no enterainment but they do have a quiz night.
We stayed in apartment 846 which was spotlessly clean; there was a brand new oven and all the home comforts you would expect. The tv had all English channels and the owner kindly had a selection of books that you are able to borrow.
We had two bathrooms which was excellent; we were in a duplex apartment so there was an upstairs too. The beds were comfy and there was loads of hanging space for clothes- fantastic.
We will definitely go back- we will try and get this apartment again.

Also by the pool was plenty of space for sunbathing, they also had an area slightly further from the pool side for those who wanted some extra peace. Sunbeds cost 2euros to hire for the day.
There is a small sports bar by the pool aswell, which caters good food and has a good variety of sport on big screen TV's everyday.
We did leave the apartment, but that was because Los cristianos has so much to offer for everyone, (just down the road is a bar called "Shakespeare's" where you can go for great Karaoke and friendly English people as well as good food).
The room we stopped in was a private apartment owned by Clive Cooper (www.tenerife-sun.co.uk for good deals). It was close to the pool and being on the first floor, not the ground floor, we were on the same level as the pool and sunbathing area. The apartment was clean and spacious and can easily hold a family of four in comfort.
If i do go back to castle harbour (which i would'nt be surprised if we did) then apartment 238 will definately be in consideration.
In conclusion, castle harbour is a great getaway for families as well as couples with friendly staff and great scenery to ensure your stay is as relaxing and as enjoyable as possible.
