Sunwing Fanabe Beach
81 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"2nd time we have stayed at this apartments, and sadly we were disappointed this year. Standard has fallen considerably. Pool area was very busy, most days we couldn't get a sun lounger. Pool was full of chemicals and goodness knows what else. The bar and restaurants are good, although again very busy. Apartments standard has dropped drastically within past two years, although still very clean(Cleaned every day bar 2). Shower was far too small, and you could not let any small children use them due to very hot water every 30 seconds. Family rooms are big, but just unfortunate that it was needing a complete refurb! Other rooms in this complex are better.
Good Location. Good entertainment for children i.e. Kids Club / Play station centre etc.
Would not recommend this for any older or single couples as this place is jammed packed full of kids!! Ok, but defo not a 4 star apartment."

"My husband and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Sunwing Resort in Playa Fanabe(Sept 07)
The resort was clean &spacious, but hardly no entertainment and the price of the food in the restaraunt was way overpriced.
Some of the receptionists were friendly but most weren't.
As for Playa Fanabe, there was really nothing to do other than go for a walk along the prom,eating out was expensive and the so called Italian restaraunts served the worst food we have ever eaten.Generally our opinion of the whole place was poor,con men on every corner waiting for tourists to con money from. Won't be returning to Tenerife, there's no place like home(N.I.)"

"Very clean and friendly hotel. Mostly suitable for families with young children. I travelled with my 2 teenagers (16 & 18) and nothing really for them to do on site, pool, water polo.
Sunbeds are at a premium when the hotel is busy, and the usual holiday maker leaving towels on the sunbeds and not returning for hours later, or not turning up for hours spoil it for everybody!
Rooms are large enough for 2 people but no more, but they are very clean."

Lovely location .
"We fancied a couple of weeks in the sun before our main holiday next April and chose the Sunwing Resort as it offered self-catering facilities, which is important to us as our daughter is coeliac.
We selected these appartments as they seem to be set in the quieter part of the Las Americas coastline and we were not disappointed. A short stroll gave us access to all the local beaches, bars and restaurants but we felt far enough away to be relaxed.
We stopped in a 1 bed appartment which was very clean but a little cramped for wardrobe space and also the "kitchen" area was very limited.
The complex itself was very busy as expected during August and we felt the pool was a little small for the number of guests. It was sometimes difficult to get a sunbed despite promises from the staff that they would not allow beds to be "reserved". Personally we found the local beach far more relaxing but if you have young children who require a safe pool and don't mind the crowds, then the kids will certainly enjoy themselves.
However, for adults who want a bit of peace and quiet there are two sun terraces situated on the fourth floor.
The staff at the complex were very helpful but we cannot comment on the restaurants and bars on site as we ate out every evening. There was a good mini-market on the complex that was perfectly adequate for providing essentials for breakfast or lunch.
Finally - we would recommend "Bentleys" restaurant on the seafront - friendly English staff and great food."

Super complex and excellent holiday location
"We holidayed at the Sunwing Resort, Costa Adeje, last week of July, first week of August 2007. The complex and resort were recommended by friends and certainly matched all our expectations.
With two families in our party including two teenagers and one child we were hoping for quality accomodation, family style entertainment and a variety of things to do.
I am pleased to say everyone had an excellent holiday including the teenagers!
Spacious accomodation with high standards of cleanliness and competent and friendly staff provided a good base to holiday from.
With only a very short walk to the beach front and promenade the amenities of this resort are all close by. The "livlier" members of our party therfore did not have far to travel to enjoy banana boating and parascending. Also within decent travelling distance using a complimentary bus service was an excellent Go Karting trek.
There is a great variety of family style entertainment throughout the resort, particularly tribute artists performing Abba, Billy Connolly, Elvis and Neil Diamond to mention only a few.
There is an abundance of restaurants throughout the resort and having eaten in a different establishment each of our fourteen nights we all concluded that the food was as good as we ever sampled on holiday.
Lots of shopping and sight seeing tours also available so with the wonderful climate the Sunwing and Costa Adeje is highly recommended."

"Stayed here in 2006 and decided for what we wanted it hit the nail o the head so booked again this year. Upon going back nothing had changed not even the staff! Cleaning still of a good standard, service standard was the same and the restaurant was wonderful. Room was of a very good size for the 2 of us and I had requested a room with pool view by contacting the hotel directly before we were due to arrive and they gave us a great room no complaints at all.
For the money and if you go to Tenerife for a week in the sun like us with kids or without you will love it. Barely moved from the pool side.
One thing I will warn you about - we went with Direct Holidays booked it on line no problems. When we got there we decided that we would do the Medieval Night which cost us around Â£70 they said a three course meal all alcohol - cheap paint stripper wine and an orange cordial and water included - the problem was the meal - it was a bowl of boiling hot soup followed by a little full baby chicken with half a garlic baked potato followed by a yoghurt pot style vanilla ice cream - it was a total rip off but if you are in it for a bit of fun then you may be able to live with it but personally I was disappointed as I was hungry and still afterwards I was!
Anyway that is my gripe about the holiday company though not the hotel.
You will love it if you go, there are better hotels for sure but not value for money in my opinion; I have been to Tenerife about 9 times now and this is definitely the best area and accommodation if you want to be close to the night life but not on top of it."

"have stayed here 3 years on the trot and we have booked again in 2007. The hotel is mainly inhabited by scandinavians with a sprinkling of Brits. Very peaceful and laid back with no drunken revellers. Hav e been coming to Tenerife for 9 years and this hotel is ideal for us on a self catering basis"

best complex in tenerife
"excellent complex, apartment very clean, air conditioned,kitchen had all new IKEA utencils, good balcony, rooms are fairly small, Bathrooms excellent, 2 sinks, large mirror, hair dryer, power shower,. TV, loads of wardrobe space, with full length mirror. very comfortable beds, maids 6 days per week.

you can get internet access in the air conditioned lobby, or the kids can rent a play station game. there is a squash court and a fitness room,
There is a well stocked shop on site, 2 restaurants/ bars, although I did not eat in the restaurants."

2 adults with out children.
"I have just come back from a weeks holiday. I was worried about this resort as it does state it is a family resort. But we did like the resort it was very clean and i liked the studio which we had. We did not lay out around the pool as the beach is only a walk away and if you wanted to you can use the hotel terriace which i did.. It seemed very good for the family and the children all seemed very happy and safe as i felt that they could not get out of the complex as we struggled ourselfs .. Food was very expensive on site but we found some really good deals 7.95 euro for a 3 course meal at ramseys which we did go rather alot and even breakfast which was 2.99 for a big fry up and a free drink.. so please give it a try as we was more than happy with the food and service. Also please be aware of the fruit seller on the beach as we really did get caught on that as we paid 18 euro for 2 melons and i am not one for getting conned but i did.. also the sun beds are very expensive 15 euro for 2 beds we took the towels from are room which they provided and they were FREE... Apart from them we really liked the resort and want to go back again. To all those adults with out children give this ago as it is not to far from the beach and good resturants and in a really good area."
