does what it says on the tin
"louise & Majella from Derry march 2011 we stayed in the udalla apt for 1 week at the start of March 2011. overall they are basic, bathroom decent enough but kitchen area not great no kettle which was a bit of a nitemare, only got towels changed once which wasn't great. Also a brush & mop would have came in handy to tidy up the aprt on a daily basis as they werent cleaned that i am aware of during our stay there. on the plus side the pool was good quiet and always got a sunbed and the staff were friendly and spoke really good English. good location and easy assessible to everything you would need re bars & restaurants, supermarket. would stay again for the money."

"Me and my partner booked this hotel at the travel agent at the last minute and so were unable to check it out on TripAdvisor. When we did we were quite worried. However when we arrived we found the hotel to be more than adequate. The hotel reception was very nice and clean and check in took two seconds. We had a normal twin room that we felt was definately large enough. The only down points were that we had to pay for the TV (something that we have had before in budget hotels) and the balcony looked out onto a busy main road, however we were told this before we went at the travel agents. The pool area is nice, if a little small. We never ate at the restaurant/pool bar and only bought one bottle of water on the day we stayed round the pool, which was 1,50 euros for 500ml, which seems a little pricey. We did not see many guests around the hotel, but those we did see all seemed to be young and not English. There were especially atlot of Spanish groups who made a little noise at night but nothing I would say was over the top - especially considering they were on holiday and enjoying themselves. The location is good. It is a little further away from the beach then we were told (700m) but not too much further. The hotel has a supermarket but there is a much bigger one just round the corner that has everything you should need. During the day we spent one day round the pool, one at Aqualand, one at Jungle Park and the rest round the beach. The beaches nearby are all nice, and were not too busy when we went (3 Apr to 10 Apr). Aqualand and Jungle Park are definately worth a visit if you like them. I will write seperate reviews for them but they offer a nice alternative to just sunbathing. As for eating and drinking - there is a very nice strip nearby with about 6 English/Irish/Scottish bars that have good entertainment and good cheap food especially breakfast. For those with a bit more to spend there is a good complex next to these with slightly pricier, but not bank-breaking restaurants. We especially recommend Star of Asia for a good Indian and The Bulls Head for night entertainment (had a very good band every night). Beer at this strip was around 4 euros for a pint of John Smiths, local lager abot 2 euros. If you fancy a more clubbing style holiday this hotel is not far from the main strip but we went there once and got so fed up of touts we turned around. All in all I would recommend this hotel for a cheap sunny getaway, it might not be the best hotel you stay at but it does the job."

"This hotel was really good and yes i would again.I read the reviews before going and was dreading our 10 days there.But we had no worries at all.On arrival which was a day early and at 2.30 in the morning(thanks to having to find other flights after our orignals went bankrupt)we had booked 2 rooms but under the circumstances we were given 1,which at that time of night and all the travelling who cared.The next day the other room was ready but on the other side of the hotel but they went to a lot of trouble to put us next to each other,which happened the following day.As for the rooms they were up to date and spotless,our room was cleaned 4 times and everytime we had clean towels.The food was really good and all set out as a buffet,it was hard to pick what to have for breakfast even the fussest person couldnt fault it,for tea if your a meat eater you have no worries but if not there was salad and if u picked around a bit u could make a decent meal,there was fresh bread and rolls and plenty of nice desserts.The pool was clean and plenty big enough as the beach was less than 5 mins away there was always plenty of space.Dont read anymore reviews make up your mind when you get there,for a budget hotel you couldnt ask for better"

"We arrived late August. the hotel room was nice and clean and had everything you could require, the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The cleaners were always helpful and very friendly. The first meal we had was breakfast and it was ok there was a good selction of hot and cold food as well as drinks. The evening meals were everything you could ask for, they had lots of flavor and again had a great selection of hot and cold food, we cannot understand why some of the reviews insult the food. The waiters and waitresses were extremely helpful assisting us anyway they could. The pool and pool side bar were perfect, we cannot pick any fault, the pool was a good size, there were always sun lounges available at anytime of the day and the pool was nice and clean. The bar staff were amazing and always trying to assist and make sure we never went thirsty as well as always trying to engage in conversation. The location of the hotel is perfect as its 2 min walk to los Christiano's beach and 5 min walk to las Americas beach, the area was quiet at night and never had any bother with noise. It had everything you could require for a family, groups of friends and a young couple as we are. We met many people there young and old and the atmosphere around the hotel is very good. After reading some reviews on this hotel we were a bit cautious but once we arrived we realised some people just cannot be pleased. We are already discussing when we are next going back. We would like to say thank you to Udalla Park. "

"We had booked our hotel and then seen your site so we went with some trepidation!! When we arrived we found the reception area quite dark but the staff were very pleasent and helpful. The room had been refurbished recently and we found it clean and comfy!! The bathroom was clean and the linen and towels were changed every second day. The food was quite basic but edable and plenty of it. The pool area was clean and the pool itself was clean and big enough for everyone to swim. The location of this hotel is spot on as well. If you want to spend your time at the beach you are literally 5 min walk from las vivantes beach. You are also in between Americas and cristianos so you have the choice of what entertainment you want. We have been to Americas a few times and we would def go back here. You get what you pay for and here is basic but cheap as wel!!"

Great place! Would stay again no problem!
"My sister and I stayed in this hotel for a tortnight half-board. It was my first time abroad but my sister has had many trips to different countries/hotels. We both agreed that the staff were friendly and the hotel was clean, with good service. Towels changed every other day, bedlinen twice in the fortnight. Cleaners always about. (working) The food was good with lots of variety. It cannot be easy catering for so many different nationalities each day. There was always a meat, fish, chicken and pasta dish available, loads of salads, breads, and fruit, cheese, cooked meats etc. The staff were friendly and helpful and one waitress spoke english as well as we did! The recently refurbished rooms were clean and fairly well equiped. (bring your travel kettle) Unfortunately there is no air conditioning but we managed without it perfectly. Our door was a bit tricky to open for the first few days but that was because it was newly fitted and the lock was a little stiff. When we arrived at 5.30 a.m. we thought we would be disappointed because the foyer looked a bit dark and dismal but next day it looked much better! They would need a lift going all the way to the foyer for transporting suitcases. There are four or five steps to negotiate. All in all we enjoyed our holiday and I would have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending it to others."

DIRTY,NOISY,TIRED,FOOD UGH ! PLEASE DON'T STAY HERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"We knew in advance this was Budget accommodation but nothing prepared us for what we suffered.We stayed 10 days and reported problems but no action was taken by staff nor management.Cleaning : perhaps somebody came in once every two days and waved a duster about, because on the day we arrived I wrote CLEAN ME in the dust on top of the TV and it was still there on the day we left (see photo).The standard of decoration and maintenance was horrendous,dirty,stained,worn out,the bath was stained and rust pitted and hot water virtually non-existant,just about enough to have a VERY quick shower. A superb supply of ANTS (at no extra charge) running all over the kitchen worktops,reported second day and you guessed it,nothing at all done about it by the staff.Our room was above a shop/cafe which opened at 5am every day so we did'nt need an alarm clock because the noise of chairs & tables being shunted about did the trick and got us up for an early start every day,we asked to be moved to a quieter appartment but the staff were'nt having it and seemed surprised at our complaint. The Internet facility did'nt exist because it was "Out Of Order".The pool area was OK if you were prepared to take on the TOWEL reservation brigade whom were all German and a rather dour, unfriendly lot,the FOOD was aimed at these clientele and I'm not a fan of German sausage which was always on the menu,even for breakfast,all the cold food was of an acceptable standard but the hot food was'nt appetising nor worth the extra amount for half board,eating out was far cheaper and much more appetising.We will visit Tenerife again but would never consider a return visit to Udalla Park Aparthotel !"

"udalla is a small complex we stayed for 2 weeks apts in need of upgrade especially bathrooms and kitchenette very minimal equipment we stayed half board food was not really upto much but staff very friendly and you could always get a sunbed drinks cheap at pool bar if staying try to get in apts away from main road as if on low floor it didnt feel safe to leave patio doors open and it could be noisy from traffic. but to sum up probally would recommend self catering its about 15 min stroll to veronicas but lots of bars restaurants around "

Could Not Compalin
"I do not agree with the reviews this hotel has had, we stayed there for a week half bored and didn't have one problem at all. The rooms hav recently been done up and are looking good, the staff were very friendly, hotel was clean at all times, pool was grand. If I do have one problem to add it was that there was not much choose of food at dinner times, just your usual pasta, chips, rice and meat dishes. But all in all I hav had an amazing holiday stayin at Udalla Park and would happily go back in the future"

DON'T GO, DON'T GO I went to Udalla Park...
"DON'T GO, DON'T GO I went to Udalla Park Half board and it was disgusting. There is works going on from 7.30am till 5pm, no breaks. I mean full fledged drilling, cutting tiles with machines, hammering the works. The workman have their music on full blast so that you cannot hear each other speak at poolside two floors lower than the work. I took photographs if anyone wants to see them. At no point was I advised that there would be works going on and it was not on the website or Travel Republic did not tell me and I was on the phone to them whilst I booked the holiday. The Food was amazingly bad. Not one night could I stay and eat at the hotel. The food had been under the lights that long that it all had a had dark crust on top, not the you knew what it was anyway. Breakfast - Wow, I mean who puts cheese in scrambled eggs they tasted rank. The Bar - Everynight I went to the bar to buy a coffee. Everynight I had to search the hotel for someone to serve me at the bar was always empty. Do not try to get served after 9pm nobody will help you, they turn all the machines off then. They say on the webite that they have Sat TV, they do but nothing in English. The first person I spoke to in the hotel told me not to eat the food (Scottish couple). The staff would have moved me if I was with a big tour operator but I wasn't."

Very BAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stay away
"The room was booked via www.monarch.com.BE aware!!!!! We stayed in the Udalla park hotel 3 nights and we had a very bad experience! room 227 was just OLD,bathroom falling apart,No hot water(only 14 liters(so if one of us takes a shower the other has to waith one hour to get water agai.BAD! We had half board , Thanks God not all inclusive. The food was just awfull (old,dry) eaven the musli was a bit smelly. The big "head waither" was to pushy with the drinks.When we didnt order anything was mombaling something in spanish(probably not something nice)The waitress(should be senior citizen) has never smiled,and it was rushing to finish our meal that she can pick the plates up. Te maide service was again just bad.Cleaning just every second day and you got the old bed linnen back to your bed.(not fresh,clean ones) The phone in the room wasnt working.Cables sticking out from the wall. The owner of this place should invest some of the profit back to the hotel.(they trying but aint enaugh) Wont return and wont reccomand to any body."

"I went to The Udalla Park apartments with 3 friends. The apartments are based in quite a good location with plenty of shops nearby and the beach about a 10 minute walk away. Upon arriving at Udalla Park it became apparent that the hotel manager really took to us. Within 2 hours of arriving he was outside on the street shouting at us on the balcony demanding that we came downstairs and have a drink with him. On one occasion also he was kind enough to go to our room at 5:30am to keep one of our friends company. Our favorite member of staff though was Pilar who is just an absolute legend and probably the best human ever created. She is a role model for all Pugs. Next door to the Udalla is a small shop. I say small i mean this shop is the smallest shop ever built. If a customer wants to go in the shop the lovely Bulgarian woman with great banter has to leave in order for the customer to fit inside. Opposite the Udalla is an Italian restaurant where Diego works with his Dad. Diego does not enjoy lads banter but does offer free lefts into town at the expense of his Dad's wing mirror. I can't comment of breakfast as i was always too steaming at this time of day to eat. The dinner in the evening was bland and stinky but it did fill a hole. Upon informing the lady at reception on the last night that i was leaving in the morning she raised her arms in the air and shouted "bien!" which i assume means she was devastated about our departure. Overall i would say that the Udalla is well worth visiting just to meet some of the characters that work there although if you can get any other hotel then do. "
