One star gem
"Second time to this hotel stayed march 2014 and again this march. The location is amazing, the pool is very well kept and views across the sea as you bathe are lovely. The bar is fab, the staff that run it are so good with everyone, kids as well. The food and drink very reasonable and lovely. Had lunch there every day. Omelets wow. The down side is Yes it's very dated, old linen and towels etc but also very clean and towels and bedding are changed. Had same apartment 701 both times and yes basic but a good size and this year they have give it a fresh coat of paint. My only fault is it could do with double glazing to keep the noise out but we just took ear plugs as we knew that from last year and problem solved. A lot are being updated and having new double glazing fit so if you get one with this you will be fine. You have to be the sort of people who make the best of things and not MOANERS. I mean ITS 1* HOTEL. You know that when you book it. Would I go again? Hell yes it's great. "

"Just returned from a ten-day stint, and I must say that the apartments are better than expected.
Yes! - the apartments are a little tired (see attached images), but you get what you pay for, and Iâve certainly stayed in a lot worse over the years. The location is absolutely spot-on. We stayed in room 207B which had a lovely sea, pool and harbor view â what more could you want? My only gripe was the state of the linen â which was very worn and had stains and holes in it. Not nice!
With that said, the staff were all friendly enough and spoke pretty good English.
There is an independent eatery attached to the apartment called The Sea View - which was okay, but in my opinion it lacked atmosphere and resembled a school canteen â though the grub was half-decent.
All in all, itâs decent low-budget accommodation that resembles Bagpuss - "an old, saggy cloth cat, baggy, and a bit loose at the seams".

"Not sure what some people reviewing this place are on , just got back (Aug 2014 ) from a ten day holiday and this place is great . Wasn't expecting a lot as I didn't pay a lot but please don't let the price and star rating put you off this place .its one of the oldest hotels in Cristiano's but doesn't feel as some places I've stayed . It's in a great location with some great views over the sea and volcanoes . Minutes walk from the beach , restaurants and cafes that host some good entertainment at really good prices average 1 to 2 euros a pint . The staff were very friendly and helpful ,tony and Allan down at the bar made us feel very welcome and was great with the kids .the pool was lovely and the sun stayed on it all day . Are room was cleaned 5 times over the holiday with clean towels . I would highly recommend this place to anyone who was looking for a cheap get away to Los Cristiano we loved it so much were going back in may , hope you've found this helpful "

well done comodoro.
"we have just got back from a 7 night stay at the comodoro, we arrived on the 5th october and stayed until the 12th october. We have to say what a fantastic week, we have stayed in 4 other hotels in Los Cristianos before including 4 star ones but the comodoro out shines all of them.
From when we checked in to when we checked out the staff were very pleasant and polite, friendly and very helpful. We stayed in room 207B and it was brilliant, very clean, lovely view of the harbour and pool area, clean towels daily, lovely kitchen area, ( just cannot fault it )The bar and ocean view resturant is a must for a good meal and drink at very reasonable prices, its well run by Roger and Heather backed up by tony( great bar man and sports fan ) along with Ruth and Tracey who cooked the meals. Take our advice and have the serloin stake with all the trimmings priced at E8.50 its fantastic and Tracey is the best cook in that department we have come accross ( cheers Tracey you did us proud and if you still want them umbrellas for the tables outside let me know, you know i can get them very cheap, LOL ) for all sports fans the bar is a must, 2 x big screens and at E2.00 a pint is a must. The pool area is very clean and is cleaned every morning, the pool itself is great along with the small pool for the young ones. We came for a weeks holiday and to chill out and thats exactly what we did at the comodoro and when we go back to tenerife next year we will certainly be looking at staying at the comodoro if there are vacancies available. Our advice to any one going to tenerife is give the comodoro a try you will not be disapointed.Thank you all at the comodoro for our fantastic stay and look forward to seeing you all next year.

Great Value For Money Great Location
"We are a couple 54 and 57 we have been to Tenerife a few times before but not to the Comodoro, we were given a room on the 9th floor overlooking the sea and the mountains,
The room well we got what we paid for it was cheap and the room was functional everything was old and needs modernising
but what the hell we went for the sun and have no complaints with the place,
We were stuck at the end of our holiday due to the snow at home our airport was closed, our flight the morning we were due to depart was cancelled but we managed to book another flight late that day to a different airport, the staff at the Comodoro were very good and allowed us to keep our room until we left at no extra charge,the bar is also very reasonable and the staff very helpful,
We are going back in April

"This hotel was vile. The only good things about it was lovely bar and restaurant and close to the beach. The bad things are:
Belcony door didnt lock
No hot water
Shower head was moldy
Very noisey and thin walls
Reception never wanted to know and told you to come back tomorrow
pool was ment to be heated but it was just too cold to swim in
Maid hardly came and when she did she just gave us towels, didnt even change are sheets
They drilled every single morning at 8:30 till about 2 ish
All the cups and plates were really dirty
And the toilet looked like it had never been cleaned
Over all tenerife is a lovely place and im definitely going again but NEVER again at comodoro

excellent location, basic but very clean
"We stayed there a few years ago during the springtime, its in a really good position right on the front at the quiet end of the prom with sea views, very basic, but clean and a lovely garden with pool to the front."

Fab for the price you pay..
"Just back from week in Comodoro.. Excellant location and value for what you pay... Staff extremely helpfull with any problems we had which were only little anyway... Food in the bar very good and cheap Scott and the two ladies had great welcome for all and would cook watever was wanted.We had a 1 bedroom apt with stunning views and returned this time after staying in a studio in June... It is worth to pay the extra for 1 bedroom.. Roll on next year... We will be back..."

Excellent location, excellent people, excellent holiday
"Fab holiday, very clean. If you are looking for a superb location and an excellent pool with friendly staff then this is ideal. Rooms are very clean which has always been very important to us, not massive (we had a studio) but we only used it to sleep in anyway. We had read that the bar will do anything you want and thats certainly the case, Scott's a clown but so obliging, Gary know nothing about football (according to this swans fan) but is superb and helped make the holiday what it was. We are not kids, or first timers abroad but a 51 and 56 year old couple who go away at least twice a year. Wouldnt usually write a review but can't believe this is only down as a 1 star and wanted to let everyone know what a great time we had.
