once in our room i thought things may look better in the morning , who was i kidding our bedroom patio backed on to a cave full of rubbish and cat pee wich made it impossible to open to cool down we spent most of our time sleeping in the so called livingroom to keep cool if it wasnt for the people we met i dare say i would have gone home as ther was no other accommidation available.we were infested with ants and roaches the plug sockets were hanging out of the wall the bedside tables had three legs instead of 4 . and to top it all off after getting intouch with my partners family who had trying to contact us for 3 days we found out that a close member of the family had past away only then to discover that the reception staff knew all about it but couldnt be bothered to let us know after one attempt so all in all this place should be knocked down not advertised as a holiday destination

Bad all rounder....cleanliness bad cleaned 2 times a week.
Location okay not far from the bars and shops make sure you go to the Wigan Pier (exellent).
Staff grumpy,,entertainment not bad always showing a show but at the end of the night the entertaiment really starts. Saw 3 fights in a week and 1 guy getting glassed in the face,too many young ones.
Couldn't go swimming pool at minus 10.....give this place a miss even though you get it cheap.

The apartment was refurbished, clean and well equipped - kettle, toaster etc. The owner pays for someone to clean and change towels. This was done twice during our stay of 10 nights.
The complex itself seems to be in some sort of transitional phase - from being used by lots of package companies to being privately owned. It seemed fairly quiet for the height of the holiday seasons - no problem with sunbeds, queing for drinks etc.
The pool bar was good value and the food they served was nice. The staff were very pleasant and cheerful. They tried to entertain people around the pool during the day but not many taking part.
There was a mix of families and younger groups and nationalities with a lot of spanish people staying there.
The bar in the evening was open but only ever saw about 3-4 people using it and there was not entertainment. This isnt a problem as the location of the complex is brilliant - 5 min walk to Fanabe/Puerto Colon and all the bars and restaurants.
The swimming pool is fairly large with two smaller ones and was never overcrowded, although it has seen better days and I would think they will need to repair a lot of the tiles soon.
The complex itself is kept very clean and tidy.
All in all this was a good value break for our family as it worked out very cheap to book the flights ourselves and rent direct. I would stay on this complex again in the same circumstances, although we have decided not to buy on it.

Yes it's basic but for the cheap prices I know that people were paying what more can you expect!
The pool is not heated but its also not running and is not too cold! I used to go for a swim everymorning!
The apartments are clean and the 24 hour english speaking staff and 24 hour security are very pleasant and always willing to help!
I dont understand the poor reviews on this site as I chose to live there! There are plenty of bars around and the beach is only a short walk away!
If I ever move back to Tenerife I would certainly live in the Orlando apartments again!

Having been there for five nights, still no clean towels, after having left them on the bathroom floor for the cleaners to take a hint but it did't work.
We landed upgrading ourselves at a hefty cost. After 11.00pm at night, in the bar area, plastic tumblers were issued in case there was any trouble, that tells you all.

The hotel swimming pool was cold, temperature measured between 19.5C and 21C during the two weeks over Christmas and New Year. You had to move quickly and not stay in too long to avoid hypothermia. The sea was warmer at 22C. We didn't make much use of the entertainment, but the magic show on New Year's eve was absolutely brilliant!
Hotel extremely hard to find by hire car due to road works and temporary closures/diversions. Here is the best way in from the airport:

Thought the location of the accommodation was excellent.
Our rooms were cleaned twice whilst we were their. Did have to ask for the towels to be changed but replaced immediately.
Our apts were in block 6 403 and 404. Excellent recently refurbished. When we arrived apt looked fantastic smelt clean was basic but excellent value for money. Maid had created swan's from the towels and left them in the bathroom and bedroom. Lovely touches.
Didn't use the pool bar or viewed the entertainment, but I think thats a very individual thing. Their's lots to do in Tenerife entertainment for everyone to suit all tastes.
I recommend the Aqua Park, if you ask when you arrive so many children can be part of the dolphin show. It costs

Then there was the fight for sunbeds at 8 when they were unchained,also there was quite a few people had money etc stolen from their rooms, quite off putting to say the least.
However , we went back last month ,they had been refurbed, were spotless clean and really quiet, an excellent holiday.
Would not recommend going in the summer when our own english yobs are there.

Very bad fight one night with some yobs,its a pity its got an exellent location and great entertainment.
