How to Get There
Overall a good stay & would recommend. Spotlessly clean hotel with great friendly staff. One staff member to stand out is Jose Vera, always smiling, helpful and goes that extra mile with his customer service. Top man!
Good selection of food, always fresh salad too. Themed nights also. The Piano bar is very dated and is not so good, usually one member of serving so a long wait...
The hotel is close to the airport so only a short transfer, 10 minutes if that. There isn’t much around outside the hotel, only an Irish bar a short walk away, which was pretty good with live music. We visited there most nights, with not enjoying the Piano bar in the hotel.
Pool good, plenty of sun beds and lots of space around the pools. Pool bar very small & when asked for a cocktail I was told they werent included in the all inclusive deal which I found unusual.
Overall I would recommend this hotel. 4/5.
Visited here for a week with friends using infiniti points. Had a very spacious two bedroomed apartment, apartment P10 it had a large balcony, although the apartment was in a corner and got no sunshine at all all day. It is classed as a club apartment and although very spacious it is very basic.
We were self catering and the kitchen and utensils were all good. A dishwasher would have been useful.
We had two evening meals in the hotel, the Italian themed night and the canarian themed night. Food well presented and lots of choice. Restaurant looks very inviting, white tablecloths and flowers on all tables.
We also had one breakfast, again very good choice and well cooked food.
Pool area was lovely and clean. Not keen on the pool bar area, always had a bad smell, maybe drains, so didn't really sit in that area. Can't comment on the entertainment as we never watched it.
Plenty of good bars and restaurants within easy walking distance.
We usually stay at the Royal Park Albatros hotel when in this area, but from now on we will choose the Golf Plaza.
All staff were excellent, especially Maria on poolside bar, she was always happy with a smile.
We stayed at the Grand Muthu Golf Plaza in February (family of four), - just a short break for 5 nights. The hotel is about a 25 minute drive from the airport and is situated in a modern residential area sandwiched between golf courses as the name would suggest. I didn't play the courses so can't comment but we walked up to do the crazy golf one afternoon and the nearest course looks decent and well maintained.
On arrival we were told by the reception staff that we'd been 'upgraded' to two apartments. This generally makes me suspicious but I shouldn't have worried. I can't comment on other accommodation at the hotel but the two rooms we were given on the 3rd floor were very spacious, clean and well equipped with decent balconies. Those rooms at the front of the hotel will suffer from some road noise but it didn't bother us. Likewise the hotel is indeed on the flight path for Tenerife South Airport and therefore there are many flights in/out all day, so those who are sensitive to aircraft noise may need to take heed. Frankly we got used to it very quickly and it didn't impact on our holiday.
The hotel itself was fine for what we paid. It's not really a '5 Star' in the established sense, but my experience was that it was clean, well run and reasonably well maintained. There are plenty of sunbeds and two decent pools (one unheated so choose wisely!).The pool areas are neat and whilst we were there a lifeguard was always on duty. The hotel entertainment team are young and energetic and if you like that sort of thing they do water polo, water aerobics, darts tournaments for the kids etc. We found all the hotel staff, and particularly the reception staff, to be very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat in the hotel (other than at the Pool Bar which was fine)so you'll need to rely on other reviews for their thoughts on the food and the all inclusive package. The Piano Bar in the hotel is as far as I'm aware the only bar and is situated in the basement. The drinks were reasonably priced and the evening entertainment is what you'd expect for a family hotel in Tenerife (e.g. flamenco dancers, singers, parrot show etc etc). The Spa is situated just up the road from the hotel. We played squash there (I haven't played since the early 1980s) which was great fun.The rest of the Spa looks fine although there are quite a few steps to conquer. As far as I'm aware you need to pay for any things you do at the Spa so if you've booked a package you may wish to check first.
There are no bars/restaurants right next to the hotel but plenty a short 10 minute walk down into the urban area (opposite the hotel that looks like it's from Walt Disney.....). We usually took a right out of the hotel and cut down the cinder path to the harbour/beach area where there are restaurants for most tastes. Our favourite was the Queen Elizabeth 2 - an odd name but a good restaurant, even our teenage boys liked it........
There's no sandy beach as such at the harbour (it's volcanic pebbles) but we went to Los Cristianos on the bus which picks up from outside the hotel. It's a 30 minute journey on the bus or about 20 euros by taxi if you don't have a hire car. Make sure you walk up the promenade at Los Cristianos to find the decent beaches (Playa de la Vista being one of them)
To sum up we liked the hotel and didn't have any major complaints about anything. Like many hotels this age it needs some TLC (message to the hotel manager -particularly the toilet block by the pool!)but overall we enjoyed our stay there.
Disappointed with several aspects of our stay. However staff wonderful, food ok.
Sadly this is NOT all inclusive - even if that’s what you paid for!
The spa is NOT included - even though they imply this by naming it hotel & spa
The evening entertainment is painful
Everywhere is wonderfully clean & quiet just marred by the weird limitations on what is included
Won’t be coming back
Hi, this is a strange review as I have mixed feelings about my experience here.
The rooms are large and clean and well appointed although a double bed is not a standard item in a double room. You get two single beds pushed up together but made up separately with individual sheets and blankets which obviously isn’t what a couple require. After speaking to reception this was remedied the next day with a double topper and double bedding placed over the two singles, I thought this was a reasonable solution.
The food here is first class and with plenty of choice over the three meals. There is definitely something for everybody and plenty off it.
The pool area is well maintained and plenty of space to suit all requirements.
Location is good with a small Spanish town about 20 minutes walk away with banks, pharmacies and cafes and bars, this area seems to of kept its character and not became a mini UK seaside resort.
10 minutes walk away is a marina with boats ranging from billionaires play yachts to local fishermen’s work vessels, there was even a vicking long boat tied up at one point.
So that is all good... now for the not so good.
The “all inclusive” package offered by the hotel should actually be called the “semi inclusive” package.
WiFi in your room has to paid for separately and all inclusive drinks are time limited, before 11.30 in the morning you have to pay, after 11.00 at night you will have to pay,
All inclusive drinks only include the local cheap brands, so any recognised labels will be charged for, also procecco type wines must be paid for.
It is also worth noting that you cannot drink inside the hotel before 7pm and drinks from the pool bar must be consumed outside. Not so good when the temperature drops or the weather takes a turn for the worse.
My next complaint is the fact that the hotel advertises one of its facilities as being a spa, and yes it has an indoor spa pool etc which looks quite nice... but it’s not inclusive to the all inclusive package 😩.
The piano bar opens at 7pm (this is the hotels only internal bar) and has typical holiday resort entertainment on, starts with stuff for kids then can be anything from a snake demonstration to karaoke.. just remember what your allowed on your all inclusive deal
So to summarise, it’s a well appointed clean hotel with good staff and food but I will leave feeling a little bit cheated by the package not being as inclusive as most places I have visited. This was a general feeling among the guests we met while staying here.
