We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment which was overlooking the smaller pool and it was fantastic. (i think it was room 248). It had a huge balcony which was shaded because it was on the first floor, if you are on the 2nd floor you have no shade. The apartment was huge (for two people) with great bathroom, bath and shower, double sink etc.
The cleaning staff come in every day (if you want them to) and are always around if you want/need extra towels, toilet paper etc.
The pools were really nice - good that there are two because the lower, larger one, tended to attract most of the kids and the smaller one (still not tiny) was a bit quieter. The water temperature wasn't that warm though.. not freezing, once you were in it was ok, but it wasn't warm!
There is a small shop, with limited stock. At the end of our stay they hardly had anything because they were getting ready for a rennnovation and were running stock down. That's fine but if you still have guests, then either have enough basic stuff, or just close.
The supermarket, Mercadona, with a few other shops and couple of cafes, is about a 10 - 15 min walk down the road and the beach and town is probably a 25 - 30 min walk, and not the most scenic route so not particularly attractive. We only walked it one evening, partly because both of us were sick so we just took taxis and a taxi to town is only about 5 euros.
The restaurant was pretty good too.. nothing outstanding but decent food, pizzas and snacks, salads.. huge portions as well!
The only real negative I would say was the free wifi... it is really slow. It's fine for whatsapp or the odd email, but if you really want to surf the web or do anything fast then you are better off paying for the fast internet... 3 euros a day or 15 for a week. It is a bit sneaky to be honest, offering free wifi when it is not great, but then again, it isn't expensive to get the faster version. When we did that it was fine, we could use Skype and watch series on Netflix etc. (like I said, I wouldn't normally do that, but both of us were really quite ill and we just wanted a easy, lazy holiday)
I wouldn't particularly choose to go back to Tenerife as it is a barren island with lots of tourist resorts, but if you want winter sun, it is perfect. I would definitely go back to the resort though, I thought it was really good.
