We stayed for 2 weeks in a studio apartment, 7th floor in the Main tower (eek).Fantastic view of the mountains, and a glimpse of the sea. On arrival we had a bottle of water, wine and a fruit bowl. The apartment itself was large, plenty of room for 3 people. Very clean, maids in every day. The kitchenette is fine for doing bacon and eggs, but only has 2 rings and nowhere to put anything, so a bit difficult if you wanted to cook a proper meal. Staff were lovely, our toaster broke, and within 5 minutes of notifying them, we had a new one delivered to our door.
Negative Points - our room faced the street and there was constant noise throughout the night, delivery trucks, dustbin lorries, coaches, people noise and in addition to this ...
there was roadwork’s going on across the road from 8:00 am and the one of the lifts that serviced our floor was out of action, and that was also having major work carried out on a daily basis. The room was quite cold. Read More
We had a storm one day, and the rain was pouring down the centre of the tower, and the wind was howling! The balcony couldn't really be used because it had no sun on it and was very cold on that side of the tower.
The pool area was spotless. One pool is acclimatised to around 25 degrees, so warm enough to have a dip even on a cloudy day at sunset. Plenty of loungers. No children! Think they all stayed at Parque Santiago 5 as they have a children’s play area. So perfect for adults. Pool bar a bit pricy (Beer 3.95 euro, Full English 5.50 Euro, a lot cheaper 10 minute walk away 1.50 Euro for a beer and 2.99 Euro for a full English).
The beach 150m away was rocky, and only used by surfers, however there was a lovely sandy beach about 500m away Play Del Camison. The hotel is in the commercial part of Las Americas, if you want to shop for camera's, watches, shoes then this is the place to go. There are 3 Parques Santiago's very close together and the prices reflect this, a beer in the restaurant (La Trattoria) across the road was 3.95 Euro's for a small one, but if you walk 10 minutes in the direction of the strip, then you can get a 3 course meal for under 8 Euro's and a large Beer for 2 Euro's.
