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.

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.
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.
A little oasis
A lovely place to stay, with a great heated swimming pool.
Thank you for your review!. I am happy to know that you had a great stay and you took the most of the best point of the property, which is the "REALLY HEATED" POOL. Best wishes!
proper little paradise
Well maintained, clean property, friendly helpful staff. This property is exactly as described, some may think a car is essential but if like us, you are brave enough to go by bus, you can go to most major and small towns around the island. The nearby Mexican is a must, great value, good food, friendly staff.
Within a few minutes walk there is a 24 hour supermarket for basics, also a larger supermarket with butchers counter no more than 10min walk. Also a couple of bars with outside tv for the essential football and sporting occasions. This is the perfect place to relax and take in the sun. The communal pool is good sized warm and clean.
Although this is a working banana plantation, you are welcome to wander around the picturesque surroundings, also the workers here are very friendly and polite.
We look forward to returning.
Thank you so much for your detailed review! Yes, many of our clients stay there without a car as you can walk to the taxi and bus stop (the bus service here is punctual and cheap) although a car is recommended if you wish to move a lot. But you have everything you need on the area, including the lovely mexican! And of course being on the middle of a banana plantation is something really picturesque... my favourite place is the pool, so heated in winter!
Schöne Erfahrung in der Bananenplantage aber kein hohes Standing
Wir haben uns sehr auf unsere Ferien gefreut, dachten wir hätten die perfekte Unterkunft gefunden um unsere Ruhe zu genießen und die Batterie aufzuladen.
Leider war unsere Wohnung direkt ans Pool... nicht weiter schlimm wenn es nicht diese Poolheizung gäbe, die Tag und Nacht ununterbrochen lief. Es war unmöglich die Fenster aufzumachen... auch mit Fenster zu, hat das Bett vibriert.
Das Personal war sehr hilfsbereit, aber es gibt keine Lösung für so ein Problem.
Grillen? Wir mussten danach fragen und konnten einen Grill 4 Tage später bekommen. Tennis? Die Anlage müsste dringsten renoviert werden. Sauberkeit? Überall draußen Tierhaare, die Möbel auf der Terasse müssen nie sauber gemacht werden.
Ansonsten war es eine einmalige Erfahrung so eine Plantage von der Nähe zu sehen, das Pool hatte immer eine angenehme Temperatur zwischen 25 und 29. Bis auf dem Empfang, wo wir nach jeder Information betteln mussten, war das Personal freundlich und hilfsbereit. Nach allen unseren Beschwerden ist uns der Besitzer entgegengekommen, was wir geschätzt haben, wird aber diese Unruhe nicht ersetzen.
Thank you for your review. You are totally right: there was a pool machine broken during your stay, that is why the owner asked me to refund part of the cost of your stay. Sorry that you did prefer to stay on this house, rather than accepting the alternative house on the other side of the pool. However, I appreciate your comments, thank you for taking the time to writte us and help us to improve. All the best from Tenerife////Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Sie haben völlig Recht: Es war ein Pool Maschine kaputt während Ihres Aufenthaltes, deshalb der Besitzer fragte mich, einen Teil der Kosten für Ihren Aufenthalt zu erstatten. Entschuldigen Sie, dass Sie lieber in diesem Haus geblieben sind, anstatt das alternative Haus auf der anderen Seite des Pools zu akzeptieren. Ich freue mich jedoch über Ihre Kommentare, danke, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, uns zu schreiben und uns zu helfen, uns zu verbessern. Alles Gute aus Teneriffa
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)
