45 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We have just come back from the Vulcano hotel.This was the four time but most disappointing
We did not know until we arrived that the hotel is
closing down for refurbishment. Unfortunately nothing been done to keep hotel up to standard .compared to what it was this place is untidy and scruffy
We would have liked to been offered a clean and tidy hotel."

Our stay at the Vulcano Hotel
"Myself & my husband have just returned from a 2 week stay at the vulcano hotel,very comfortable large room,lucky to have a large balcony with 2 sunbeds as well as table & chairs overlooking part of pool.Very nice food plenty of choice,the only down sides are 1 the air/cond is very noisy so we had to switch it off at night otherwise you could'nt sleep,2 the sunbed situation is not good as you are too close together and thier idea of a shade canopy is no better than a bike shed it would be so much better with umbrellas,and finally there is no facilities whatsoever for anyone who smokes as there is no outside bar and worse of all people are forced to go to the entrance of the hotel, and in my opinion this must look very bad for any new arrivals to be greeted with loads of people sitting around smoking in the entrance, but they've got no option because there is nowhere else to go. Best area in playa americas to stay though. MR&MRS WATTS Dorset."

"Just spent a week in Playa De Las Americas, staying at the Spring Hotel Vulcano. This is a lovely hotel. Everything in it is to a very high standard. Our room, which overlooked the pool, and some of the best gardens ive seen, was spacious, plenty of storage, clothes hangers, and clean. The beds were comfy, the pillows were plump. The TV had BBC 1, ITV 3, BBC 3. The air conditioning didn't seem to work very well though. There is a fridge in the room, but it costs 1 euro per day if you wish to use it. Breakfast and Dinner time was a very civilised affair. i wasn't pushed into once! There was always plenty of room, the restaurant staff clear the tables very quickly. The food was very nice, plenty of choice, piping hot, fresh. I actually ate meat for the first time whilst abroad. The vegetarian choice consisted of pasta, potatoes, and omlette. Take a trip to the grill, its well worth it. Avoid buying drinks at dinner, it cost 1.60 euro for a tiny bottle of water. Gentlemen beware- no shorts, vests, or flip flops to be worn at dinner time. There are two pools, both clean and well maintained. There were three of us on this holiday and always found three sunbeds together, even early afternoon. So no need to get up early to cliam a sunbed. There are no parasols though, just a strange veranda type thing over the subeds, which provides limted shade - not nice on 40c heat! We didnt sample the hotels evening entertainment. The hotel is for older guests, i could have counted the number of children i saw that week on one hand. Las Americas is full of bars, shops, restaurants. As you head out of the hotel, turn right, then right again and youll come to a row of about 10 bars and restaurants. All good, Would recommend the Bulls Head, the band in there (the Vegabonds) is brilliant, they play from 10-1 nightly. Beware of lookey lookey men,the Chinese Sellers,and beggers, they're everywhere! But they do take no for an answer. Avoid the people with the free scratchcards- its a timeshare!! If you head to Veronicas Strip (10 mins walk), i would recommend a night out at Wigan Pier. Crystall Starr is well worth a visit. Beware, we got stopped about 15 times on the way to Veronicas - "come into my bar", "something to eat" etc. If you are into walking, if you head towards the beach, turn right, and walk along the beach, after about 30 minutes walking,and taking in the stunning views, youll come to Torvicas beach, and Puerto Colon shopping centre. its well worth the walk, pint of San Miguel is just 1 euro! Alternitavely, If you head to the beach and turn left, you can walk to Los Christianos, about 10 minute walk. Though its a bit quieter and i didn't like the beach, it was dirty. The market (Thurs & Sun) is worth a visit. My family and i really enjoyed our holiday and i would recommend to anyone.

YOU WILL ENJOY YOUR STAY AT THE VULCANO HOTEL
"This was our 12th visit to Tenerife, having stayed in a 3 star hotel in Los Cristianos for 10 of those years. For the last two years however we have stayed at the Hotel Vulcano for our two week holiday. We are so pleased that we made the change.
Clean rooms, most friendly and helpful staff, excellent meals and menu choice - including regular checking and recording of food temperatures by a staff member, varied high standard hotel evening entertainment. The list could go on.
The majority of guests are British and tend to be more senior in years, so it is not really suitable for families with younger children.
The hotel is a short stroll from the beaches, with easy access for long flat walks along the promenade in either direction, during the day or evening, which is a holiday requirement for both me and my wife.
We had a room overlooking the pool which faces the direction of local night life, and loud noise from one of the establishments does resonate until 2-30am.
Despite this negative, from our experience you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at the Vulcano Hotel."

"Having read good reviews of this hotel we decided to experience it ourselves.the hotel itself is in an excellent location and we found both food and service to a very high standard.it is obvious talking around that the majority of people staying there are on repeat prescriptions,some on three or four visits a year
Now to the way senior citizens Brits behave abroad nb not a german in sight.We were awakened the first morning in the dark about 7am by a considerable number of people with torches moving sunbeds around then staying on them until after 8am when the lifeguard did a tour and towels on unoccupied beds would be removed.then follwd a mass exodus of the sad sad peple who had booked their pitch to go off to breakfast.Consequently any normal person wanting a relaxing holiday after nine am no chance of a bed.The hotel had tried to make rules to avoid bed snatching but hadnt reckoned on British Saga louts .Yes i am 77yrs old,but this is not the way I want to get my suntan !"

Best Hotel I have stayed at
"I have been to several hotels in Tenerife over the years. The Vulcano Hotel is without out doubt the best Hotel that I have stayed at. The food was first class, I could not fault the menus in anyway.
After Midnight all entertainment within the Hotel stops, and this creates a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere for all residents.The Rooms were absolutely spotlessly clean, and all staff were friendly and went out of their way to help you.
I would definitely go back there again. I would rate it 10/10

Top 4**** Hotel In A Top Resort
"I am a 24/7 wheelchair user and this is the second time that I have stayed at this hotel. I find it very easy to get around and the superior rooms for disabled people are excellent with wheel-in showers and great toilet. The food is out of this world and we had the same table every night as they raised the table so I could get my legs underneath. The hotel is in a great location for getting around. The staff are all very helpful and happy to help with anything you need. Overall I would give this hotel 10/10 :-)"

"my son is in wheel chair so it was important that the shower facilities were suitable .
we had a room on the bottom floor which was excellent plenty of space for his wheel chair. the shower and toilet were side by side with a glass partition separating both which moved allowing extra space. we were able to hire a shower chair and all in all everything was just perfect for the duration of our stay. not forgetting the hotel - i don't think we could have picked a better one and we will certainly be going there again.

"We booked this hotel because I am a wheelchair user and it has a good reputation among the disabled community. Since I was requesting disabled facilities I booked early, and made absolutelt certain that the extent of my disability was known to both the hotel and airline.
At the start of the holiday the flight was a little delayed and we arrived at the Hotel tired and anxious to settle in; however on presenting my accommodation voucher to reception, I was told that there was a problem and there was no room for us. I asked them to check again, as we had been very careful with our booking. While we were talking with reception staff we both noted another guest in a wheelchair going into the lift. We were therefore surprised to hear from the receptionist when he returned, that disabled guests could not be given rooms that required travel in the lift. Later we were told the rooms were too small. Speaking to other guests in the lobby, this also proved to be untrue.
While we desperately phoned around to find alternative accommodation, we received no assistance from hotel staff and on a very warm day, we were not even offered a glass of water.
It seems that this hotel built up a good reputation over several years, but obviously things have changed dramatically and anyone thinking of booking this hotel in the future should consider our experience. "

"Excellant hotel, food, rooms, entertainment, facilites, first class.
Plenty of flat walking, good for the less able, and the area of the hotel was very upmarket, for any shopoholics.
Bus stop just over the road, which was easy to get around, down side you have to rely on the driver to tell you where to disambark the bus, depending on his english.
Supermarket right next door to the hotel, which had most items.
Walking to beach took aprox. 5mins, and very clean.
To guarantee a sunbed at the poolside afternoons are preferable.
Would be going back to this hotel.
