We were on Teneriffe for the first time and chose the hotel on the basis of the good reports on Trip advisor. We were not disppointed. The staff were extremely helpful and could speak German and English (a high percentage of the guests are German since Puerto de la Cruz is popular with guests from Germany). There was a large amount of choice at the buffet (we were staying half board) and even guests from other hotels were dining there. I would, however, say that a lot of the food was repeated on each night. Worst case if you get bored - there are many restaurants 10 minutes walking distance away. The hotel is, however, showing signs of wear and tear and the refurbishment will do it good. A personal wish, WLAN access in the rooms. To walk to the lobby each night to check mails or to surf is not optimal. I ended up buying a SIM card (EUR 14,- from movistar with 100 MB for 1 month). Another recommendation - if you like walking then join the Masca Gorge walk with collection by boat at the bottom. We used Victors (in German and French language). As a previous person here said this is a good choice, especially if you have never visited the island before (like us). Finally, hire a car - they are so cheap and you see much more! Hope this helps
