Finca Las Galletas
Situated on an extremely quiet part of Las Galletas, this property has a large heated pool and paddle court in the middle of a old banana plantation that has been there for more than 100 years. The star of the property is the 'really heated' swimming pool which is ideal for swimming, as its size is 13 m x 5 m. There is also a jacuzzi and a little space for fitness activities. Wi-fi. Near the pool area there is a large reading room with comfortable sofas. There is also a paddle court and barbeque area. Each house has a solárium on the roof, with sunbeds, also a private front terrace with outdoor furniture and a back terrace with views to the banana plantations. The finca offers 6 one bedroom houses + 6 two bedroom houses + 1 three bedroom house. It is located within walking distance to some local restaurants, supermarket, bakery and Taxi-bus stop.

About Ana B. Reid
My name is Ana B. Reid, although my second surname is English, I am totally Spanish!. I am a Tenerife resident and I studied Business Administration at ULL University. Apart from that, I have the following TOURIST LICENSE NUMBER: I-0002152.1 All my clients receive complete tourist information, a bit different of the typical one, about hidden beaches, local markets, recommended restaurants, events, ect.
Ana B. Reid purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Ana B. Reid chose Arona
I recommend this finca as it is a totally different accommodation concept on the Canary Islands. Being in the middle of the banana plantation offers a quiet atmosphere with all the local taste. The pool is absolutely wonderful and there is such an amount of vegetation around the terraces that there is enough privacy on each house. The situation is also an advantage: away from the massive tourist zones but close enough to enjoy the coastal temperatures and excellent communications everywhere.
What makes this Villa unique
Having a Real Heated pool is an advantage on Winter, as you might have 21ºC but it is great to enjoy the large pool to swim. The finca is enormous and gives you the advantage of follow the route inside to see how a banana plantation works. Obviously, being only 3 km of the coast gives you the chance to visit the beach on any moment and specially its sea avenues with its fresh fish restaurants where the locals go, away from the crowded tourist places. We can provide all the information you require about this.

Cool and comfortable accommodation set amongst palms and the banana plantation. Beautiful pool setting with a doorway to the plantation to explore.
Great place for a quiet family holiday
The Plantation was a great place for our family holiday (including 1 toddler and 1 baby).
The accommodation was very comfortable. I do understand previous comments around more cleaning; with direct access to the pool, the floors do get wet and dirty, however, a mop and broom are available. There is no air conditioning, but plenty of fans and a number of doors / windows to open. This does let a steady number of flies in, so perhaps some fly strips would be useful. There is also a washing machine and tumble drier on site.
The team on site were also great and kept the resort clean and tidy. One of the team doesnt speak English, but puts Google Translate to very good use to help with any enquiries.
The local area does not feel like a tourist area but provides everything needed. Lidl and Hyperdino are 5 minute drives (and sell disposable BBQs). The El Cordano restaurant is well worth a visit and is very child friendly. Nearby, the town of El Medano offers a really good sandy beach and nice restaurants; a great alternative to the busier Los Christianos or Las Americas resorts. That all said, a hire car is obviously a must.
Should we come back to Tenerife, we would definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much for your great review! I am very happy to know that you are planning to come back!. Yes, the team work hard for having the finca clean. The cleaning ladies do our best on their poor English, it it better to speak to the manager who speaks English very well. Thank you so much for your recommendations, I am sure future guests Will find them very useful
Property really lovely spacious - good spec
really enjoyed holiday - perfect for a quiet holiday but central to all the island. Everyone helpful. Only criticism I have is would like villa cleaned more than once a week although towels could be changed more frequently which was great
Great accommodation and pool
Everything about the accommodation was very good, with plenty of space, a suitable kitchen and comfortable seats (inside and out) and comfortable beds.
The pool was the highlight. It was well heated and covered at night, so it was always a nice temperature even on slightly cooler days or when there were clouds. There is also a good variety of seating around the pool (sun loungers, comfortable seats, even a lounge).
The location is very good - close to the airport, but the noise is not really noticeable. The town has plenty of shops, cafes/restaurants and amenities (including a very good bakery), but it is easy to get to larger shops and it is quite close to many of the attractions for children like aqua land.
On site you can walk round the banana plantation (good for getting a baby to sleep in a buggy!) and the whole site is a bit of an oasis in the relatively arid south of the island.
The only thing that could really have been improved would be if there was more frequent cleaning provided. Even if just to clean the floors.
Thank you so much for your 5* Review, I am very grateful. Yes, the best point of this property is the Really Heated pool, which is very rare to find. This is specially important between November and May, as even if it is warm, the pool needs it to be enjoyable. The proximity of shops and restaurants is also an advantage, considering that this hidden place in the middle of the banana plantation guarantees the quietness. This is a self catering property, but we will consider the posibility of extra days of cleaning service. Thank you again for your detailed review!
Relaxing week in peaceful surroundings
Quiet complex in good location. The property was extremely comfortable, clean and had everything we needed (except a tin opener!). We had a few issues with the wifi which got sorted for our teenagers in particular who had school/college work to do. We had great weather as well!
We loved our holiday and did not want to leave. The villa was spotless and the pool area and surroundings was beautiful. We would highly recommend for families and we will definitely be returning.
Quiet village with some bars, restaurants, supermarket surrounded by quiet banana plantations, but with excellent comunications to everywhere (the beach in Las Galletas, Los Cristianos village and the way to Santa Cruz)
