How to Get There
I only booked this holiday 2 weeks before going I then read some of the reviews and was contemplating changing the hotel but due to the short space of time we stuck with our original plan and I’m so glad we did
we arrived on the 8th of August at midday and were greeted by friendly staff at reception who gave us our room straight away, Room 232 great views of the sea and the mountains spacious clean well equipped and big enough for a family of four
The hotel is clean and well maintained
The swimming pools is really clean with plenty of sun beds and umbrellas
The all inclusive buffet breakfast lunch and dinner were excellent with plenty of choice (even for a fussy 13 year old )
The staff at the hotel work tirelessly to make sure that you have a great time if like me you you read the reviews and thinking of changing or not booking don’t this is a great hotel for the price, great location, great staff, great food we would definitely book again
Just returned from a week in the Grand Muthu and I have to say we were not impressed. We had an early morning flight and arrived around 11:30am but the room was not ready, which was not a problem we amused ourselves for a couple of hours until it was. We stayed in room 027. The room itself was very good, a one bedroom studio plenty of room, nice little kitchen with a fridge and enough utensils to get by. Nice large balcony with a table and a pool view on the ground floor. The air conditioning was next to none existent and as there were plenty of ants on the balcony you couldn’t really sleep with the door open, so we asked for a fan and they duly obliged. It was cleaned 5 out of the 7 days we were there and that was all good.
Pool area was adequate, although we didn’t spend a massive amount of time in it, pool bar a little out of the way sun beds a bit in short supply but we got by while we were there.
Food. Oh dear. Breakfast was adequate plenty to choose from, warm and generally good. Lunch and dinner were a different story. If you don’t like pork, then this hotel is not for you. Out of 7 nights we only enjoyed evening meal once and on the last night we went out for a meal as when we looked in the restaurant pork again did not get our taste buds flowing. The quality of food was not really the problem, it was just very samey I’m afraid, and there were some meat kebabs one night, and the left overs were in a salad the lunch time after.
The evening entertainment was pathetic. It was in a dark dingy room with no air conditioning no access to sit outside, and was very very poor quality. The karaoke was amusing in places and good in places but we don’t go on holiday to stroke snakes and parrots. There was a singer on who was entertaining and was ok, but all in all the entertainment was disgusting.
The whole experience felt like they had got your money and couldn’t care less about whether you enjoyed it or not. They were not really bothered whether you ate in the restaurant or drank in the bar because if you went out it meant they were winning because you were not eating and drinking there.
The area of golf del sur itself is very very quiet. Very few bars (we only found an Irish bar in walking distance) and very little else to do, we had to hire a car so we could get to some where were there was something to do. A short drive away is los cristianos and las americas and they seemed a lot more holiday maker friendly.
All in all yes we would return to Tenerife but definitely not the Grand Muthu, I would say the hotel is at best a 3* and not worth the money, but it’s only our opinion.
I have just returned from an all inclusive 10 night stay at this hotel. I travelled with my husband, 11 year old son and 7 year old daughter.
Firstly, do not pay expensive transfer fees when booking through a travel provider. We paid €12 each way for a taxi. The hotel is only 15 mins or so from the airport.
Check in was simple. However because we had an early flight and arrived at 11am we could not check in until 2pm. Please also note that the all inclusive option does not start until 2pm on your day of check in. We had to find a pub for lunch and kill some time.
We stayed in room P08 which was an upgraded one bedroom ground floor apartment which overlooked the pool. The apartment was huge! It was clean and tidy. Maids cleaned the room 8 days of the 10 we were there. The aircon in the bedroom was poor but the children were comfortable on the sofa beds. I would say that as a tall 11 year old, my son was close to out growing the sofa beds and I would not consider them very suitable for adults. The apartment had a fully functioning kitchen and the fridge came in handy for keeping water cool. We did have a few cockroach visitors.
The pool was a little on the small side for the number of guests and you had to get up early to reserve a sunbed. Around the pool was quite dirty with cigarette butts and general rubbish which seemed to not be cleaned from one day to the next but the pool itself was clean.
Please note that no inflatables are permitted in the pool at any time which disappointed many who had taken rubber rings. Please also note that pool towels are not included in the all inclusive option.
Food was very good. We have stayed in many all inclusive hotels and would say the food was some of the best we have had. Full English breakfasts with all the usual cheese, breads and meats you would expect. We didn't have lunch as we tended to get up late but at 4pm snacks are served at the pool bar which were cheese and ham rolls, tuna rolls, chips and nuggets or similar. Evening meal was themed each evening. There was also a pasta option and chips for the kids so they were catered for.
All inclusive drinks start at 11.30am and includes local spirits, beer and wine.
Entertainment was limited but ok. At 2 o'clock there is darts or a beer pong type game. 3 o'clock every day is water polo. Evening entertainment consisted of a kids hour at 8.15pm and then bingo, karaoke, dancers, singers or an animal show.
All in all we probably would not return to this particular hotel but for the price we paid it was value for money. I have marked 3 but really was a 3.5. The apartment and food meant pushed it up half a mark.
Happy to answer questions.
