Playa de las Americas - Spain

Playa de las Américas is a purpose-built holiday resort between the Municipio of Arona, and Adeje in the south of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. It was built in the 1960s beside the town of Los Cristianos and stretching northward to the Costa Adeje. The resort area features numerous bars and nightclubs, as well as a number of beaches, most of which are man-made from imported sand from Africa due to the darkness of the native volcanic sand.

At Hesperia Troya Park Hotel, Playa de las Americas, Tenerife, Canary Islands, our room was dirty, expensive and we had clothing stolen!! It was not a cheap hotel either and the hotel management did nothing to help us get back our clothing!! We even wrote to the head of the hotel chain and they said that we don't steal clothes at our hotels!!! Well Mister Vicente Garcia: someone there is stealing clothing!! Do you have any horror stories about this hotel or others to share with our reader? Thanks.

"I never went there but i heard it from my cousin that once a person was slipped on stairs coz water was spilled all over. i dont know is it true or not but my cousin told me and i trust on him but its a worst thing a person can do by spoiling the name of those whom you even dont know therefore i would like to share another fact with you. once my freind's uncle went there and he found that his suitcase was empty which was earlier full of his importand documents and some money but thanks to the hotel's honest staff. one of them got it and told to fellow staff about it and they returned it to the uncle as it is. so i conclude that every coin has two aspects."

Going on holiday to Tenerife this week and staying in the Atlantida Apartment in Los Cristianos. Does anyone know how far away the apartments are from the centre of Playa de las americas. I have friends staying at the Las piramides hotel in las americas and it would be handy if we were not too far away from each other ?

como :
"3 miles at most."
bty937915 :
"Not far at all,Los Christanos is just around the corner,in walking distance"
dan_the_man :
"I stayed in a Villa near Los Chrisitanos and i seem to remember the taxi ride into town (las americas) taking 5-10 minutes? Unless of course we were just being ripped off and driven the long way round..."
Nanny Bev :
"it really is'nt far at all,approx 5 minute walk.they are both lovely places and i hope you have a lovely time."
steve t :
"a pleasant 10-15 minute walk on the seafront"
wozza.lad :
"I stayedat the atlantida apartments in Los Christianos some years ago,and i went into los Americas a lot and its a bit more than the 15 minutes everyones telling you especially to the main centre,its a 5 pound taxi ride ,or a pleasant walk, about a 40 mins to the las Piramades,i used to walk there and taxi back,have a nice time."

Has anyone been on holiday to the Jacaranda Hotel in Playa de las Americas in Tenerife? I ask this because me and my partner are planning to go on our first holiday abroad together this summer and we liked the look of it (it’s also in our price range) So we just want to know what people think of the place and what you think of the area (will it be suitable for two 23 year olds??) Also if people have any hints on where to go and what to do that would be great. Thanks for any help offered.

BIGHANDS :
"i went there 3 years ago for the new year and it was shite.i wouldnt go there it was filthy even at that time of the year when it wasnt busy just think what it would be like in the summer when its busy.i would find somewhere else and if you do chose somewhere else do not whatever you do go to tunisia but i didnt go to that hotel i went to one in playa de las americas"
getting warmer :
"yes yes and yes nice hotel and you will enjoy Tenerife whatever type of holiday you want when you get there. Las Americas is the party place if it all gets a bit much, go on a boat trip, hire a car go see the rest of the island or just relax on the beach or pool. The restaurants are all good you will love it. ps I can speak from experience I lived there for 15 years have a great time"

"The best place for real travel hotel reviews is ww.tripadvisor.com they have all the reviews. Also try"

The whole of Playa de Las Americas is custom built for sun worshippers and pleasure seekers. Amongst the Brash and often ugly concrete high rise buildings you will find Palm Groves and cascading flowering
