The location is good. The hotel itself is very poor and we would not return. They are clearly trading off their five stars and need re assessing. Our room and the bar area always smelt of cat's urine. The choice of food was appalling - if you didn't eat it that evening it was served for breakfast the following day - brussel sprouts ....... really! The accommodation was very mediocre but the toiletries were nice! Very inefficient and would not recommend. There are other hotels that are equally good and cheaper and the standards are higher.

Pleasant stay but faded gentility

Paid extra to stay in the Sanctuary part of this hotel so can only comment on what I found there.
Initial impressions were good. We were passed from the main reception to one for Sanctuary guests only. After an explanation of the facilities we were given a guided tour by one of the staff.
The central part of the hotel building is circular and open to the sky. It contains César Manrique designed water gardens and is very impressive. However the walls need a new coat of paint.
Our room was comfortable with a decent walk-in shower. The room should have had a Nespresso machine and after enquiring one appeared before we next returned to our room. Nice touch - the tv had a large range of European language channels including a number in English. Great for the odd November periods of rain.
Our balcony had strange deck chair like seating which was almost impossible to get up from.
The Sanctuary pool was basically rectangular as opposed to the free form lagoon pool of the main hotel. The snack bar provided complimentary hot drinks and water throughout the day plus some pleasant chargeable small meals.
Another nice touch complimentary tapas and aperitifs were provided in the breakfast room for an hour early evening.
We took our evening meal in the main restaurant which had plenty of different dishes and often ate the special meals cooked while you waited.
Breakfast was in the Sanctuary restaurant but I preferred to use the main restaurant as I enjoyed a morning omelette and liked being able to have it cooked to order in front of me.
All in all a reasonable holiday at a premium price but the hotel has the air of faded gently.

In March I had the good fortune of being introduced to the beautiful ISABEL. This time I met one of her identical sisters BEATRIZ who was equally attractive but had a more private outlook. The Sanctuary Level area is superb and good value in my opinion. Supposedly adult only but with most guests playing all day with their irritating devices you could question their maturity and ability to be permitted into an area supposedly restricted to those aged 16 and over. I will definitely return soon but with a larger supply of earplugs.....................

Enjoyable stay

We understand this hotel is what in England we would called listed. It was designed by a local famous architect César Manrique who influenced the height of buildings on the island amongst other things. Hence any alterations to the hotel including redecorating, updating etc has to go through his foundation and therefore things take time to get done. The hotel is built in the shape of a Polo mint with all the rooms around the outside and lovely Manrique designed tropical gardens in the middle and open to the sky. Whilst we were there a decorator was painting several areas but unobtrusively I.e during hours when guests would be out of the hotel.

There are steps at the front of the hotel but also to one side a slope for the less abled and to bring your suitcases into the foyer. Once inside we were met by a cheerful porter who bought us a glass of cava whilst we checked in and then took us and our cases to our room. We stayed in the Level in a double room. The room was a good size as was the bathroom which had a separate toilet. The room was clean and light and there were lots of powerpoints with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. On the downside the bed was two singles pushed together, not a double. The chairs on the balcony were deck chairs, not sun beds, which were uncomfortable and cut behind the knees when you sat in them.

Breakfast could be eaten in the Sanctuary which had a quieter atmosphere than the main restaurant. Please change the music loop in this area. Whatever time of day you went in there be it breakfast, afternoon snacks or for the Italian evening the music was the same. It did not reflect the time of day and was irritating after a while. Other meals were eaten in Spices. As previously mentioned this was a very big area, noisy in the evening and more like a canteen. The food was OK at best warm. The evening entertainment in the adjoining bar area was either solo singers or a band. The bar got very busy at times and the bar staff were kept extremely busy but were invariably efficient and cheerful.

We found staff from all areas to be cheerful and helpful. The public areas were kept very clean and overall we had a good experience and may well return.
