    This beach is a very picturesque beach with palm trees behind and two set of rocks going out to see. One can hire sunbeds or sit on your chairs, rugs etc. It is very relaxing to go in the evening. There are a couple of bars nearby as well. However the sea is not great. There are lots of stones to go into it which hurt. Also the depth drops quickly and whereas there are no big waves, the tide is very strong and can bring a small child back on the beach and just as easily drag them into the deep areas. Great for children to play on the sand but this is NOT a beach which is good for children to paddle or swim in the sea

    Nice little touristy thing to do, dancing fountains to music. We had a drink at a bar overlooking the fountains and sat and watched the half hour show. Enjoyable, although the drinks in the bar were very expensive.

    Perfect place for those who like waves, but less comfortable for kids due to the wind with sand. If start blowing - raising very quickly and lot of people leaving the beach with towels and personal things full with it.

    Walked to Playa via the seafront a couple of days before Christmas on our holiday to Costa Adeje one evening, it was so lovely to see all the Christmas lights & decorations lit up, really loved the giant star & present you could stand inside. The big Santa & Christmas trees & lights around the palm trees were also impressive. There's plenty of shops, bars & restaurants,a crazy golf & the dancing fountain in the Safari centre opposite the Hard Rock Cafe. You could easily spend a couple of hours here, a really lovely Christmas experience, we loved it.

    Great meal and excellent value as always. It can be tricky to make a decision from the extensive menu but there's sure to be something to please everyone if you're travelling with a group.

    Very relaxed holiday destination, weather was fantastic, loads of places to eat and enjoy at reasonable prices.

    The resorts of Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje were our favourites. Less lads out in the evenings for the booze!

    Impressive and different fountain in the nearby shopping centre. You will only spend a few minutes here admiring it and taking photos but definitely worth looking at

    Disappointing. The receptionist was new but really should not have been let loose on travellers with his knowledge. Asked if he could show us on a map where the room was - no, I don't know. Had a go at finding it ourselves but after 12 hours travel, we could not find it. Back to reception and asked someone different - map produced.
    Found room but key didn't work, back to reception - getting hotter. Room very dated but beware they are having a big refit February on. Safe didn't work, back to reception - oh, weren't you given the instructions.

    Lots of steps and messinine levels so not easy for anyone with mobility issues as the lifts do not cover every level. Beds comfortable.

    So we had requested a quiet room with sun in the morning. Don't bother requesting as we were given the room right next to the steps of the slides where children screamed repeatedly from 10.00 until 5, probably the noisiest available. The sun was over the balcony in the afternoon so no breakfast on the balcony. We were told we needed to go back and ask in the morning, then pack and wait for a different room to be cleaned, if available - one day down. Not impressed.

    Facilities dated but due to be upgraded.
    WiFi hit and miss - available at reception.
    TV good range of English channels.
    Sun beds usually available but may be in the shade. Large pool unheated.

    El Camison has a beach bar which tries to imimitate Ibiza with its very loud "music" - other wise an idyllic beach.

    I do not think we will return to this hotel, although we had already booked for PS4 in May.

    We played this course last year and liked it so much, booked 2 rounds this year.
    We weren’t disappointed, the course remains in great condition and the greens were quick and true.
    As other reviewers have noted, the pace of play is a little frustrating but it was better than last year….and when on holiday, it’s best just to enjoy it!

    Great mini golf cause in the middle of las americas. Been a few times while we was in Tenerife, open till late and great way to start an evening out. Choice of 2 18 hole courses or 1 9 hole.
    Only €12 for 18 hole and €3 for a can or bottle to drink.
    Can’t fault it.

    We fancied a break from the sun so booked the Magic School escape room. With Sammy (10) leading the team and Graham in his 70s this was a really fun hour (or 57 minutes in our case) for all the family and something I think we'll do again next time we're in Tenerife.

    Good place if you need to go for shopping. Everything is there. You can spend there some hours. Restaurants as well
