Los Cristianos|0.71km from downtownWe stayed here for a week in Feb. in a 2 bed apartment. It is a 15 min walk down the the seafront and a 30-40 min walk into Los Cristianos or Playa Las Americas. There is an extensive bus service running close to the hotel and taxis are fairly cheap too (€8 for a 3 mile trip in the evening home from Playa). Pros- spacious, modern, large south facing balcony with table and outdoor furniture, very clean, shower had an overhead rain shower and a hand held wall shower, plenty of towels in room (no flannels though), free large pool towels (available for a €20 deposit), well stocked kitchen inc. washing up liquid, tea towels, cloth, toaster, coffee machine, kettle & microwave, large comfy sofa and TV (which had BBC1,2,news, ITV, channel 4 and 5), friendly and helpful staff who spoke excellent English, Zanzibar outside bar with gas heaters, close to a 24hr mini market and a larger supermarket (Diapublix) 5 mins walk down the hill. Cons- no air con (this was an annoyance as unseasonably warm whilst we were there but would make summer months unbearable - there was a noisy fan in each room ), only one bathroom (2 sinks and a toilet and shower which blocked easily) for potentially 6 people, no toiletries (apart from soap) in the bathroom, nowhere in the large shower to put shampoo/conditioner shower gel etc. so had to leave on the floor, very firm mattresses on the beds (we have an orthopaedic mattress at home so I like a firm mattress but these were too hard even for me!), no dishwasher in kitchen, no grill/oven (did have a microwave which looked like it did grill but no instructions on how to use it), no dustpan/brush or broom, lots of Balinese beds but these were never used as €30/ day (however this included food/drink up to €30) and were unfortunately in the shade for most of the day, some building works going on which the hotel apologised for but we did still have to cross the building site to get to our room (noisy during the day too). Accessibility - this hotel is built on a fairly steep hill so is terraced. To get between the different levels there are slopes and stairs and they also encourage you to also the pavement outside the complex as there are locked gates up and down the length of the hotel for which you are given a key for the gate closest to your apartment. They are trying hard to make themselves accessible but unless you had an electric wheelchair or scooter this is not the hotel for you. Many of the hotels in Los Cristianos are built on the hill leading down to the sea so this hotel is not alone with its difficult location.
