The location of this hotel is indeed great and I was served very friendly at the bar, rooms are well equipped and clean - nothing to complain. The desk clerk could be more helpful and friendly, that was disappointing. Pricing is fair for service, location and setting. Anyway, I would book it again.

The hotel is in a prime location right on the beach but dates back to the 80s when it first opened. Our room was quite small and made to feel smaller by the large wardrobe taking up most of the passageway from the outdated bathroom. As a previous reviewer commented, the hotel is in need of some serious TLC such...

We stayed here for one night at the beginning and end of our holiday and feel that some of your reviewers have been a bit harsh. It is not a resort hotel but perfectly comfortable and in a beautiful position on the beach, also very convenient for the airport and an easy stroll into the town. The bedrooms were a...

The Playa Sur Tenerife is more than a little bit shabby and in need of a serious lick of paint, which is shame as its prime location right by the beach and dominates the El Medano skyline. Everything just seemed a bit old fashioned and was like a throw back to the 70’s. There is so much space both inside...

Kitesurfing and windsurfing holiday. The hotel was on the beach, a perfect location in between the kitesurfing and windsurfing beach. The hotel was near to a nice cafe which did great breakfasts as sadly the hotel buffet was swarmed with flies and served rather unfresh looking omelette, cold meats and cheeses which wasn't much choice, but the coffee was nice....

Couldn't fault the hotel or its staff, the food is good, rooms are good, everything is good about this hotel! Really didn't have any complaints at all, and I am planning on returning as soon as possible.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our holiday and that only because the other El Medano hotels were full. I wouldn't stay here again. How can the people that run this hotel be so negligent? The hotel is clearly only run for profit and no investment goes into anything. Whereas it is very badly needed: the...

Firstly, you can not fault this hotel's location - right on the beach, close to El Medano's facilities. There is a car park but it's small. For those without a car, a bus stop is right by the hotel connecting to Abrigos, Medano and San Isidro. The price per night worked out at about £40 per night. The hotel itself...

Very very basic hotel. Everything just seemed dirty and the rooms had no air conditioning. This would perhaps be ok if the price was not so high. We only spent 53mins in this hotel before leaving even though we still had to pay for the nights accommodation. And that was too long. Decided to head back to Santa Cruz (40mins...
