How to Get There
My husband and I came here 2 years ago and decided to come back as we loved it so much. Not much has changed. Food and drink are all excellent with plenty of choice (we did all inclusive through Sensatori).
Food and drink choices
Spa- water ritual is great
Green choice- €20 for not having your room cleaned
Adult pool- quiet and peaceful
Comfy sun beds
Staff- polite and kind
Clean pool towels daily
Not so great-
Only one cup all week. We had to ask in reception eventually to get it replaced as our phone didnt work in our room. The phone kept breaking also.
Beds round adult pool running out at just after 10am- we aren't early birds
This is a totally amazing place! New hotels are always good, but this one has surpassed all expectations! As local even in December, it's so nice to spend time there! The price is justified, and I want to separately note Infinium pool - it's a dream!
We were three generations of a family of 10 members, staying at Gran Melia palicio Isora during July. The entrance and layout of the hotel was very impressive. Lots of acitivies for the children. We all had a great time.
We booked 12 nights on red level (adults only). From the very first greeting in the exclusive red level lounge (to check in), we were impressed. I had had an issue with my booking and they were incredibly understanding and professional. It was resolved much better than I had anticipated. Red level is great for couples who don't want to be around children, it quiet and very peaceful. The service we found was great across the entire resort, not specific to red level - the staff is very friendly and work very hard yet always greet you with a big smile. There are 8 restaurants and the food was pretty great. Our only regret is not going full board because, won't lie, it is expensive... We only booked B&B thinking we could walk to other towns and explore restaurants outside the resort - hmmm, not quite. This meant that at the beginning, we were a little taken aback - you simply cannot have a plain lunch for less than 30 euros and dinner for less than 100 euros. So go all in and then you won't be thinking about the prices! Obviously not everything was perfect but no issue was a problem for them. So, overall we had a fantastic holiday, stress free and thoroughly enjoyed the exercise classes, the pina colada by the pool, the bali bed experience with a view to La Gomera, the posh dining at night, the awesome spa, the room service of tapas as well as the sun and the company! Like I said, next time, we go full board and will consider also the drinks package to mimic an all inclusive experience. Also, for a more adults only experience, we would go during school term, in July/August, there are trillions of kids. (nothing against them, just want an adults only experience). If you can afford it. also recommend red level.
We had a lovely stay here. The hotel was immaculate and they cater for everything. Perfect hotel for young family. I don't think we would come back to Tenerife, it wasn't to our taste, but the hotel was great. The area next to the hotel wasn't exceptional, there is a nice walk from hotel to the town but not much more there. We found two great restaurants which we loved and went to those pretty much every night. Beware if you choose to avoid the all inclusive and drinks package option then the drinks are very expensive. 6 euros for water!
