Quiet Location, Minutes From Beach, Supermarkets & Restaurants. Sleeps 2-4
I hope you have a great time on your holiday! Don't forget that you can email or phone me during your stay with queries or problems or to report things that are not quite right. It is important to me that you enjoy your stay – don’t suffer in silence and wait until you get home to report a problem.
Why Paula chose Arona
Playa de las Americas is a smart, fashionable beach resort with manicured gardens and parks, low traffic volumes and the world's best brands jostling for your attention in the shopping malls. Parque Santiago sits right on the beach front, in a quiet spot. You are in the middle of it all but away from the noisy bars and crowds. Everything you need is within a few minutes walk: supermarket, beach, restaurants, shopping. Need some quiet time? You can sit on the shady balcony and check your emails using the free wi-fi or soak up the sun by the pool. The pool is one of the few in Tenerife to be heated in the winter months. People come from all over Europe to enjoy a sun-drenched, relaxing holiday in Tenerife. Why not make it your next great holiday?

Nice pool area & location.
Basic accommodation which could do with updating.
Cleaner visited property to change linen & towels but didn't clean apartment.
I am sorry that you thought the apartment needs an update. It was completely re-decorated within the last six months and all of the walls are pristine white and the varnish on the wooden staircase is shiny and new.
True, we do have a couple of pieces of wooden Canarian furniture but we think that these add character to the living space. I guess it is just a matter of personal preference.
Our price includes final cleaning and a change of towels and sheets for longer stays. I am sorry if you were expecting a thorough cleaning service. This can be arranged as an extra.
Loved the fact that the owner said to make yourself at home. And we certainly did. Would highly recommend this apartment and hope to return in the future
Thank you very much for taking the time write this review. I hope that you will come back soon.
Thank you very much! Glad that you liked Parque Santiago.
Enjoyed the holiday very much.
So glad you enjoyed your holiday, thank you for the review.
The Parque Santiago complex backs right onto the beach. It's a 3 minute walk from the apartment to the sea. There are cafes on the ocean so you can stare at the waves with a coffee (or a fry up) or watch a spectacular sunset with cocktails (or a cup of tea). For a great sandy beach with sun loungers and umbrellas, walk along the sea front; 5 minutes to Playa del Camison or 10 minutes to Playa de las Vistas.
Fly to Tenerife South Reina Sofia Airport. Then take a taxi to Parque Santiago, Playa de Las Americas. Taxi fare is around 25 Euro and the journey takes 20 minutes. Easyjet, Ryanair, Thomas Cook, Jet2, Norwegian and British Airways fly to Tenerife South. Book early for the best prices!
A trip to the top of Mount Teide, the dormant volcano that dominates the island, is a popular day out. And boat trips to the island of Gomera, the smallest Canary Island, start at the port at Los Cristianos (20-30 mins walk or 5 mins in a taxi). You can take boat trips out to sea for dolphin and whale-watching; travel in a luxury yacht, a glass-bottom catamaran or a galleon.
There is a well-stocked supermarket within the complex selling fresh bread and milk daily and there are other larger supermarkets (SuperDino or Mercadona for the best prices) five minutes walk away. Las Americas has a huge choice of restaurants, bars and cafes to suit every budget and there are still more along the coast in Los Cristianos. Despite the development of the last 30 years, Los Cristianos remains a charming, Canarian fishing port with restaurants, tapas bars and more traditional shops selling gifts and leather goods. For high-end luxury shopping, head to the Safari and Desert shopping centre where you'll find designer shops (Armani. Hugo Boss, Lacoste) mixing with more affordable Timberland and Levi's and the Spanish high-street giants Zara, Bershka and Mango.
For the more active, there is a good choice of watersports; para-gliding, jet-ski hire, diving and snorkelling, surfing and windsurfing. For young children there are playground areas with slides and swings dotted along the seafront. Crazy golf at Parque Santiago 4 is popular with all ages.
For a great family day out, try one of the local water parks. Choose from Siam Park, which has a gentle lazy river ride, 'beach' with wave pool and machine producing 2m high waves plus water slides of all varieties OR Aqualand, which also has water slides but offers a dolphin show every afternoon too. Free buses to Siam Park and Aqualand leave from Las Americas every half hour starting at 10am. If you miss the bus, a cab will take you for 6 Euro.
There is a folder of local information in the apartment, with our recommendations for days out, restaurants and where to find the post office, bank, chemist etc.
