La Siesta Hotel
59 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We have just returned from this hotel stayed from 6th October to 20th in room 25. I had read various reviews about this hotel and all I can say to the negative ones is rubbish. The hotel is spotless, staff go out their way to make you welcome and very helpful. As for the food every meal time there was something different whether you want hot or cold food was BRILL (in fact we only ate out once at night as the food was that good). The dessert's were absolutely delicious and varied every night. I would highly recommend this hotel - it is handy for the beach, shopping and day trips. I cannot think of a negative thing to say about this hotel as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and will def book again next year."

"We have just arrived back home from our fourth stay at this hotel We were really disappointed this time. Standards have fallen. Food was very poor quality, not good enough for a four star rating. On speaking to other holiday makers there, they all felt the same. We ate out several evenings. Did not cater for small children and the sweet menu each evening was the same. This spoils our holiday, not sure if we will go back"

"This hotel is amazing, I go every year with my family and we love it! There is nothing to complain about at all! The food is in a wide variety of choices The pool is very clean! The entertainment is top (kids and adults love it!) The staff are always very friendly and gave us a warm welcome on our arrival. I highly recommend you book this hotel for your holidays! As for the people who complain, find something else to complain about as you are telling lies"

Back to their best
"We have been to this hotel several times since 2009 and were witnessing a steady decline in standards. However we decided to give the hotel one last try because the location is excellent and they allow you to trade your evening meals for lunch so that you can go out and enjoy some of the fabulous restaurants in town without feeling cheated. We are very glad that we did return - the hotel has had some renovations and more are going on (quietly with hardly any disruption). The food has improved and is now better than ever with plenty of choice. On the downside: - there is nothing like a good cup of coffee with breakfast and the coffee they serve at breakfast is nothing like a good cup of coffee!! - the reception staff while very polite and friendly but they have only 2 speeds - 'dead slow' and 'stop' that said you only really need to use them twice so not a major problem."

Caution is the mother of wisdom
"Caution!This hotel is not what it seems..its clean enough and the staff are friendly enough but i wouldnt recommend it.The food is average and no fresh coffee in the morning..They charge you for everything which is a disgrace..fridge and safe etc..more a 2 star as opposed to a 4 star..ive stayed in alot better..and the staff seem to be ok ,some nice ,some not so nice...One of the receptionist tried to overcharge us for our drinks bill on departing from the hotel,luckily we had kept the receipts...Its quite a souless hotel and the entertainment basic and the rooms basic,the pool is salty while other hotels have fresh water ..why his this..???disconbobulating. ...make sure you shop about..before entering into a contract with this hotel..you will thank me for my advice..happy hols all..Edwin"

Dont waste your money!
"1. Very poor selection of food. One island with 8 trays which are repeated. If you are a fussy eater this is a no go! 2. You'll be lucky to get a sunbed with an umbrella. They are fixed with 2 sunbeds underneath. I tried to put my towels on at 6.30am and got told off by the receptionist. Came back at 8.30 and all the sunbeds were taken. When I confronted another receptionist, their response was 'What do you want me to do!?' 3. Staff are rude and unhelpful. 4. You have to walk about 10 minutes just to get to your room. 5. There is no fridge. You have to purchase a minibar costing 25 euros to be able to use the fridge in your room."

"The hotel is very nice but more 3 star than 4.My wife has to use a wheel chair therefore we booked a disabled room.The room was clean and the bed sheets were changed often .Bathroom....the wheel-in shower was designed by someone who had never sat in a wheelchair,the walk-in cubicle was narrow but the wheelchair fitted in easily,no wall seat only a small stool in the back corner,it was safer to use a patio chair.Shower unit is on the right hand wall but no support rail on the left hand wall to assist getting out of wheelhair onto shower seat.Yes there is a support bar on back wall but useless unless you have 6ft.arms. Patio...reasonable size but wheelchair user is stranded once out there because their is a deep window sliding rail in the entrance to get over. Food...Breakfast is excellent fried, boiled or scrambled eggs ,bacon .potato croquettes,sausages etc also pancakes.Two toasters available and various types of bread and finally plenty of fruit jams and cereals. Dinner...We found this very bland ,lacking in good well cooked meats ,often fatty,but plenty of fish.Soup selection was tasteless and watery.Tomato soup once in 11 nights. Choice of sweets was the smallest we have seen in any hotel and often repeated. Sunbathing..All the sunbeds are chained up over night and unlocked at approx.09.30,plenty of people sitting around waiting from 09.00. Pool Bar...Served very good lunchtime snacks.Drinks expensive,beer comes in half pint plastic glasses at 2.5 euro .Nice small bar across the road serves 1 pint for 2 euro. TV.....If getting on in years and you like to watch a little TV at night Im sorry to say that there are only news channels and eurosport,most other places have all English channels but not La Siesta. The Vulcano just up the road is a much better hotel but alas it's sun bathing area is cramped. We are returning to Las Americas in 9 weeks time,but this time going A/I to the "Best Tenerife Hotel" and costing no more than I paid for half board at the La Siesta. Stayed December 2011, travelled as a couple Value "

"NEGATIVES:I booked this hotel because it was advertised as a 4star, in my opinion it is more like a 3star. All the reception staff were rude, bar 1 who was lovely. The majority of waiters / waitresses were nice however 2 in particular were awful. I was charged 81 euro for a 9minute local call and after 3 days of arguing it was reduced to 9euro..... NO information at all is given in the rooms re charges or services and when i asked about call charges i was informed that they only know how much something will be when you have made the call!!!!! 2 other people had inflated bar charges..... you cannot pay as you go for drinks etc in this hotel it is all charged to your room/card. Unless you are at the pool by 9am you have NO CHANCE of getting a lounger. Beds are very uncomfortable; if you have a bad back forget it. GOOD POINTS:Food is ok. Great location though and close to the beach. Nice rooms."

"Just got back from a 14 night stay from 12th Aug to 26th Aug Room 333. This was my 4th visit to this hotel with my partner and small child in the same number of years. There are a lot of people who complain about very trivial things but I guess that is in our nature no matter where we are. This is a lovely hotel, Granted there are other hotels that boast a more impressive reception area but speeking to residents they are not happy with size of rooms etc... La Siesta gave us a very warm welcome and the reception staff are very professional with a warm approch. The rooms are large and very clean, the cleaners are excellent. The resturaunt is huge with a very wide variaty of choice for all, and the waiters are brilliant, constantly serving and ammusing the children. The pool is brilliant, an adult could touch the pool floor no matter where you stand, It is clean and along with the pool area cleaned every morning. Sunbeds are not an issue, Ive seen on many occasion people strolling down at 1pm and having no trouble finding space. No matter where you sit you will still be able to keep a close eye on your young. The entertainers work extremely hard to try and keep both adults and children ammused, The kids love them. The location is unbeatable, Designer shops, Tat shops, bars,beach, resturaunts all within sight. The atmosphere is very calm. If you want a holiday to moan about then it is irrelivent where you go, you will find something to complain about. If you are looking to enjoy a good holiday this hotel and location is a great choice. I have already booked for next Aug. Thank you La Siesta. S/K/Amy "

Good Hotel would go back
"First time I've ever reviewed a hotel. La siesta is friendly, clean and welcoming. Not a huge monstrosity of a building with only 4 floors, in the heart of playa with the main bars and entrainment a stone throw away, but so quiet you wouldn't believe the location. Rooms spotless, all seem to have sofa area that converts to double bed for families but still spacious. Has fridge minibar but locked unless you subscribe 25 euros for fridge pack. Air conditioning amazing. Food good, has everything you could want, typical bacon, sausage, eggs, fruit, croissants, cereals for breakfast and evening meals has a variety of dishes that would suit even the most fussy pallets. Pool devine, no inflatables allowed and it's salt water, beds can be difficult to get (only real negative). Area particularly flat for those with mobility issues. Hotel has a no cash policy but very secure and you can check your balance anytime from the friendly reception staff (saves loads on tipping). Bar staff very slow. Lots of different nationalities use this hotel with no specific age group but would say mostly family orientated with shared adult and children daily entertainment, kids disco every evening and they seem to love it (mostly for girls, dancing routines to songs) but adult entertainment quite poor. NOT for those animal rights activists, have animal shows brought in each evening (basically to make money through photos) but quite cruel to animals involved specifically eagle who gets poked in the chest for each photo so it opens it's wings (disgusting), but will only stop when people refuse photos or complain like I did."

All that glitters is not gold! Def not a 4 star!!
"Having recently spent one wk at this Hotel,4th-10th July, I would seriously advise others to "seek better hotels nearby", as this is NOT comparable to any 4 star that I have ever stayed in. Even Dacil Hotel in Los Christianas 3 star, could show them what good food is! The Hotel has a main Rd running alongside it which is very noisy especially from midnight to 7am, when revellers from the "Veronicas" area, pass by, then dust cart lorries start their banging at 6am! Air con in our double room was not working, only giving out an irritating drumming noise. It was impossible to "draw curtains, close windows / doors, as it was far too hot during the night. We did complain to our Hol Rep, who said he had so many complaints that he had to call a meeting to get help!! The food was safe for breakfast, plenty of streaky greasy bacon + eggs. Frankfurters + toms. Only had mushrooms on once a wk....Tea Time 7pm, Boiled, mashed or sometimes fries, with disgusting quick fried pork steaks. Meat always tough cheap cuts, and chicken. Fish not too bad. But for the people who say theres "plenty of choice", well all i can say is, they have had nothing to compare this hotel with! Do they also like swimming in dirty saltwater pools? As the one we had?!?!? Cleaners did work hard, as did the restaurant staff. My tip of the day is....Take plenty of money with you as just for a small bottle of water alone with your meal at the table is 2.75 Euro!... Wish I had been warned before hand. Would have gone elswhere, as would so many other complainants in this hotel!"

La Siesta - Just Got Back
"Just got back to the UK from a weeks stay at La Siesta, and what a great place to stay for a holiday. Everything about our stay was first class, the staff are friendly and knowledgable , the food was excellent with plenty of variety. OK the picky ones may say that there was a recurring theme around the choice of food, but with so much to choose from it is easy to have something different each evening.My only real gripe was that the food could have been hotter. There was a maid service every day and the hotel was impeccably clean and tidy. The pool area is a fantastic area for children and adults alike, with entertainment for all. The location of the hotel is ideal for exploring the local area with Los Cristianos just a gentle stroll away, along the fantastic Atlantic lined coastline, and breathtaking scenery for your companion. We are definately going back to Tenerife next year and we are DEFINATELY staying at La Siesta."
