A change of clothing policy mid way through our stay caused havoc. by liz27
3 / 10

This hotel (in it's wisdom) decided to introduce a 'No Shorts' policy mid way through our stay causing serious ill feeling and unecessary upset to our holiday.

As there was no prior notification on either the Alpharooms hotel overview or confirmation the adult males in our group had not taken long trousers due to the predicted 34* heatwave and strict luggage allowance regulations.

Each night we entered the restuarant we were met with protesting staff. On Friday evening (21/09/12) we witnessed one guest seated and part way through his meal being ordered out of the restuarant to change into long trousers. Also a young man, with his girlfriend, about to take their seats at a table with plates of food having the food removed from his hands and told leave the restuarant in order to get changed.

I demanded to see the manger at this point and was told there was not a manager on duty. I left my meal and went to the Customer Relations desk opposite the hotel reception desk. I reported what I had just witnessed in the restuarant.

The customer relations rep came to the restuarant to speak to the staff members and was told a pack of lies. When I intervened with the truth the other english speaking guests applauded me as they were also disgusted with what they had witnessed and the attitude of the restuarant staff.

Whilst aprehending males in shorts, mostly long below the knee variety, females were entering unchallenged some in particularly skimpier shorts.

I do intend to submit this complaint in writing to Alpharooms.

Disappointing to say the least by Elaine R
4 / 10

Just come back from two weeks at ths hotel.Hotel very tired and in need of repair.Food is the same each week,under cooked meat, cost of drinks after 11pm extortionate,5 euros for a whisky.Entertainment ok but could be better organised. Hate to think what it is like here in the summer, not enough tables and chairs to sit and watch any evening entertainment.

On the other hand majority of staff helpful and friendly.Would not class this as 4 star nearer 3 star.

Trip to Tenerife by Kerry S
7 / 10

Myself and my husband have just got back from a week's all inclusive stay at the Hotel Isla Bonita, Costa Adeje. We were very lucky with the weather, reaching 27 degrees almost every day. The area of Costa Adeje is beautiful, if you have never been before I highly recommend as it is ideallic at this time of year and perfect for a quiet relaxing getaway.

The hotel was mediocre I'm afraid. The reception, rooms and other areas of the hotel are kept immaculate and the staff were very attentive and the drinks were plentiful however the food was very disappointing. The food served was nondescript, some lacked flavour and some items looked like they were the same stuff served at lunch such as meats and cheese. We ate out on most occassions and I would highly recommend Tony Roma's. The entertainment was not fantastic for adults (fab for children) and seemed quite manic with no structure at times. The eagle show however is awesome. We would most probably stay at the hotel again but would not go for all inclusive as we would eat out every night.

dangerous by Kylie J
1 / 10

i have just returned from this hotel 2 adults one child 3yrs found the hotel was great up till the 16th when the hotel closed the courtyard which housed the entertainment nights and shifted all of the guests to the much smaller indiana bar which was accessed from the pool area and down approx 20 tiled stairs.We attended the entertainment on the 16th and was unable to get a seat as this venue would only take around a half of the courtyard venue after an hour of waiting we got a seat then we realised that the kids couldnt be always seen because of the amount of people crammed into this venue and with horror realised that this venue had no physical barrier to the swimming pool and a child could wander off unseen and end up drowned in this swimming pool.When i asked for an explanation for this every member of staff said they didnt know but you could tell they were clearly warned not to explain to guests, this was confirmed when i was leaving as one of the members of the animation team told me they were warned not to talk about it to the guests and he confided in me that the whole team were very scared of the risk the management had put the child guests in.So as i said at the start this hotel went from being great to another spanish hotel with absolutely no regard to guests health and safety.My advice is to check that before you book that you find out if this has been rectified as i fear the death of a child at this hotel in its present format

Not 4 * more like 2* by iloveholidays25
1 / 10

We stayed for a week in January at this hotel and it is possibly the worst all inclusive hotel i have stayed in. It was fairly busy for January which we did not expect. Staff at the hotel ( particularly the bar staff) were very rude, and cant be bothered serving you. The restaurant is a joke, on several occasions we actually couldnt find anywhere to sit not because it was full with guests, simply because tables were stacked with empty plates which had not been cleared. The reason for this is due to lack of waiting staff. Not what you expect to see in a 4 star AI. Of an evening the queue for the bar was ridiculous as they only had 1 bar member on.

The BBQ restaurant is pretty poor too, they served cold soup, and didnt really care in general. Definitely not friendly 4 star service.

Rooms were of large size stayed in a 1 bed apartment. However we were conned by the tour operator as she said she would upgrade us to a 1 bed apartment instead of a studio. well in fact all the accommodation is at least 1 bedroom.

The activities and entertainment were good at the hotel, every night had something different. 2 of the guys who were in charge of it were very good.

one pool was heated and one was not, so it was very busy around the heated pool. Pool area was definitely not 4 star.

Siam park is well worth a visit possibly the best waterpark ive been too. very well run, kept spotlessly clean, with amazing slides!

A very poor all inclusive which is not worth what you pay, glad we only stayed for 1 week. it has put me off All inclusive holidays simply due to the rudeness of staff which completely ruins the atmosphere.

The fear of All Inclusive accommodation realised. by EddieG, Belfast
1 / 10

My wife and I stayed at these premises from 8th March to 15th March 2012. It is neither a 4* nor a hotel. It is basically a converted Apartment Block which you realize immediately on your arrival as it has no reception area as such, just a desk and room for a number of chairs.

The reception staff were the most unhelpful I have ever encountered. Initially they gave us a wrong room number which we had to try and find. Another aspect of this building you notice right away is the absence of signage ( where the lifts are, the reception is, everything) Then you are faced with open air corridors again with no signage. Which is needed if you have been assigned to the wrong room and need to negotiate your way back to reception.

Another novelty for a 4* "hotel" is that you have to set your own tables. Yes you have to collect your cutlery and paper napkin and then find a table. School dinners - yes - 4* hotel , no. One can put up with this maybe for breakfast and lunch , but not for dinner when you like to dress up and feel different.

Now to the food. Rashers of bacon at breakfast do not appear. Bacon scratchings are the set menu. The food which is supposed to be hot is invariably cold. Any reasonable pieces of meat , fish etc, are strategically placed away from the front of the hot plate to which you cannot reach or have to wait until the 'server' appears which can be quite lengthy.

The "restaurant" staff do not smile and give the impression they are there under sufferance.

Now to the night time bar and lounge. You are made to queue/"beg" for your beverages like in a line for a soup kitchen. The place has no ambiance.

Finally, it was our first time staying at an all inclusive location and my fears about the appalling way you could be treated were realises.

Not a 4 star accommodation by Irish Rose
2 / 10

After reading a few of the reviews my husband and I thought this hotel sounded ok.... "But oh dear what a big let down. The food was not up to much,(except fish this was good) we had to use the microwave to heat our meals as they were not very warm. Breakfast was terrible, the only things edible were fruit, cakes, bread and rolls in the morning. Room was reasonable, kept clean, but badly needs refurbishment. The entertainment seating area was not very nice, but some the shows were ok most of them suited for families. Alcohol was watered down,( but I suppose if you started drinking at 10am in the morning till 11pm at night you might get tipsy)

We liked Costa Adeje area and went to the beach at Porto Colon which was good.

Management response from Kitty de Graaf, Public Relations Manager 14 Jan 2012

Dear Madam/Sir, We regret that you did not like your stay in our hotel but are quite puzzled about the reason why. We offer a large variety of food at all meal times and temperature of the food is being checked on a very regular basis by our professional kitchen staff. The microwave service we render is merely so clients with baby's can warm a bottle if needed. The decoration of the standard rooms might not be to everyone’s liking but the rooms are kept in condition. Additionally to the standard rooms we have refurbished 150 rooms over the last year. These rooms come with a small supplement. The entertainment seating area, Bar Acuario, has been refurbished a few months ago and has got brand new furniture, we currently have a lot of repeater guests and they are delighted with the improvements made and the new decoration. We are happy you liked the Costa Adeje area and sincerely hope you might consider staying again in our resort in future holidays. Kind regards, The hotel management

Never Ever Again !!! by dingles
2 / 10

This hotel is falling to pieces, everywhere you look there is something broken, the pool has mosaic tiles missing from the bottom of it, still it kept the little ones happy as they were swimming to collect them all and placing them on the side of the pool !!, The rooms are equally as bad, in the kitchen (which is inside of a doubled door cupboard) you have a cooker, fridge and sink, but no kettle,cups,plates or utensils ! you have to order a kettle and cups from reception which is delivered the following day. The food is not a good option for vegetarians at all unless you want to eat salad and the same pasta all week, oh or chips !! The fizzy drinks are flat no fizz at all, the lifeguard by pool A leaves your towels on the sunbeds for half and hour and then removes them, so dont put your towel down and go for breakfast it will be gone, you have to go at seperate times and leave someone to guard your sunbed !!.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, this hotel should be classed as a 2 star not a 4 star. Never ever again !!!!.

never again by shaun123
1 / 10

just got back from 2 weeks all inc at this hotel was worried re the mixed reviews but beleive me there all true plus worse .party of 5 adults 2 rooms both was cleaned daily but was shabby and could do with updating. beds dead uncomfy and 1 room had cock roaches in kitchen aera. entertainment rubbish and mainly in spanish and repetative. if you want a sunbed and brolly be their before 8am otherwise no chance. 2 lots of snacks provided at 10 am and 4pm poolside consisted of cheese and ham sandwiches and pastries but not enough to go around often dried up no butter on bread..help yourself to drinks all day but somedays wrong drinks in machine and tasted warm and awful. main pool has cracked and damaged tiles . the food is diabolical in restraunt be very careful around meats as most nights it wasnt cooked properley and was raw very repetative 2 out of our party went down with food posioning ok if you like pizza and chips by the last 4 nights we had had enough and ate out i can highly recomened the hawai restraunt excellant food and service and reasonable prices.DEFINATLEY WILL NOT BE RETURNING AND WOULDNT RECOMEND NO WAY NEAR A 4 * AS ADVERTISED MORE LIKE 1 *

Management response from Hotel Management, Public Relations Manager 28 Aug 2011

Furniture might not be to the liking of everyone but are in perfect condition. Additional to that, we have refurbish 150 of our 437 rooms over the past few months. Regarding the presence of cockroaches, fortunately we do not encounter a lot but please realize that Tenerife is blessed with a subtropical climate, which is consequently an ideal climate for insects. The hotel has a contract with a professional fumigation company that deals with the insects. Presentation of the entertainment aims at the large variety of nationalities we have in the hotel, so several languages are spoken, also English. Food is being prepared by our professional kitchen staff according to strict H&S norms. Variety of the food is international. We can understand if you one only eats pizza and chips all day this might upset the stomach, we recommend that in future you also try some of our fresh fish, excellent vegetables dishes and crispy salads for a more balanced diet.

nice hotel by bella30
5 / 10

just came back from this hotel i must say the hotel is really clean but needs refurbished. staff are really friendly and bar staff are excellent BUT the food wasnt up to much if u want chicken nuggets and fish fingers and bacon thats just chucked in a bowl then this is the place to go. even my dad who eats anything wasnt fussed on food. the snacks round the pool seemed to be left over ham and cheese from breakfast and the buns didnt have no butter on and fish fingers or chicken nuggets. we didnt even bother going down for lunch cos it was the same thing. on a tea time there was different things to choose chicken pasta salads etc but it was the same thing. on a sat there was a asian night well thats what they called it when we got there there was only sprong rolls and a duck in plum sauce which was just bones. most of the english where complaining bout the food so glad it wasnt just my family. we started eating out found two lovely chinese restaurants and and indian which are allocated near the beach which where lovely.
