“Nice Family Friendly Holiday”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Myself, my husband and our son travelled to Fanabe Costa Sur in May 2012. We found it to be a great hotel, and didnt have any problems. We found the staff lovely, especially the childrens entertainment staff. They couldnt do enough for us and our little boy, they made an already good holiday even better. Will defiantly be back in the future!

Room Tip: We chose a room with a pool view. I wouldnt personally book a room with a sea view as theres not muc...

We stayed at this hotel the third week of May 2012
Before I continue with the review I will say we only booked the holiday 3 days before we went.
It was booked through Cosmos Holidays and I thought they did a very good job.
Although I think Monarch airlines, who they booked the flights with need to invest in some new seats, they were the most uncomfortable flights I’ve suffered in many a year.
The hotel promotes itself as 4 star, but don’t believe it, 3 star for most things 2 star for others.
We had a room on the third floor directly over the reception, bar and entertainment area.
The entertainment whilst noisy if you are in the room before midnight, isn’t too bad
It’s not exactly raving disco and the majority of the guests are reasonably behaved.
The worst noise comes during the day from the road traffic and tour buses which stop in front of reception and leave their engines running, so no peaceful sitting on the balcony. TRY to avoid these front rooms
The room itself was spacious and quite well equipped, no complaints on this point
The pool area is quite nice with a separate cordoned area for small children, there is very little of the usual sun bed reserving and we never had a problem finding a couple of beds.
The sunbathing areas on the roof are worth a visit if you are a sun addict
There are 2 plunge pools and a bar up there. (No children allowed)
The food in the restaurant for us was just about OK, you can generally find something to eat. I thought it mostly over cooked and bland.
We were All Inclusive on this holiday and again this is just our own opinion but we thought the day time snacks were pathetic. They were available from a small area by the pool bar and if you don’t like burgers or sausages you’ve pretty well had it.
Service in the main bar was OK during the day but initially I thought I’d turned invisible on a night time, until I realised the waiters preferred to serve paying guests rather than those on AI as they got more tips.
A few chosen words mostly worked but it’s not what you need on holiday.
The AI drinks list is also somewhat restricted, eg. if you want anything with brandy you will have to pay, there were also complaints the cheap AI liqueurs seemed watered down
In general the staff are very friendly and helpful and all have some command of English
If you have already booked here then don’t worry it won’t be a disaster,
If you haven’t booked yet there are better hotels in the area (try the Luabay Costa Adeje).
The Saturday and Thursday markets held on the car park behind the hotel are worth a visit and there is a large supermarket directly opposite in the CC San Miguel.

If you are paying:
A pint in the hotel 2.50 euros a Gin & Tonic 5.50 euros
Outside in the bars, beer is anything from 1 euro upwards G&T 4 to 6 euros
Would I use this hotel again – No
Would I recommend the hotel – No
If I was forced into going again, I would probably elect Bed & Breakfast
ie. Skip the food and pay for your drinks.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the sides of the hotel, avoid the front.

Spent ten days here with my four children. The hotel is spotless and is located centrally. Food was good with plenty of choice for all. The staff were all lovely and the kids club staff made so much effort with everyone to ensure that enjoyment was had by all. They were fab. The pool was great and the life guard was always watching carefully. I think it is a great choice for families and I would not hesitate to return

We all really enjoyed our stay last year at the Fanabe Hotel. The food was excellent and as they all say here cooked in front of you, which is nice, we even got fillet steak one night (Sunday) as much as you could eat, and cooked to perfection!
I wanted a hotel with a gym for my son but it was very disappointing, no good at all.
Free wi-fi but only available in reception.
We went half board which was plenty for us as breakfasts are good and loads of choice but might not be much dearer to go fully inc so check it out as would maybe be worth it if u have hungry children and drinks can be dear.
I never go back to the same place twice as I like variety but would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: email hotel in spanish before you go I did and it worked

Just returned from Fanabe Costa Sur after a great holiday. Everything from the room, quality and variety of food and drinks (on all inclusive basis) standard of cleanliness in all areas etc we found to be faultless. Will definately return to this hotel when next visiting Tenerife
