Great Hotel and location
i stayed here from the 25th April 2007 - 2nd May 2007
Great location for a hotel , you will be hard pushed for a better location, behind the pool area there is a door that takes you 20 feet from the oceans edge.
Cannot complement the staff there enough, they work extremly hard to make your stay the best it can possibly be.
the resteraunt has an extremly large selection and also cant really be faulted, i would go down early or late for your main dinner tho, as it can get busy and you could at times have to wait a few times to be seated .
there is variouse activities during the day and at night, run by really young , lively and friendly reps, ones of note are maurice and susan , you can just see the energy and enthusiasm coming from them .
the shows they put on at night can vary from ok to hilariouse , i didnt think much of the crater band wich seem to play 3 nights per week from 9-10pm, after the first time we seen them we just stayed away from the main entertainment area until the main show starts at 10pm each night . there is also great childrens entertainment from just after 8pm tp 9pm in the same part of the hotel .
there isnt all that many young ppl that visit the hotel tho, the average age is higher than i thought, but there is still a good time to be had for the younger person, i myself am 25 but i traveled with my mother who is in her 50's but we both enjoyed all the same activities together and overall had a very good time.
im definatly going back there in july or august of this year and i really hope to see some of the same friendly faces as before and hopefully maker this hotel my home away from home, as i get gholiday from work every 2-3 months or so and would love to keep goign back there.
drink are expensive tho but im sure i seen a few ppl that were all inclusive, but i eprsonally cannot find any way to book for the h10 conquistador as all inclusive, as i would love to but somehow i dont think its possible in july/august when i want to return , so i will jsut had to moderate my alcohol drinking a bit more so as not to spent so much .
as i said im looking to return here in july/august of this year, but thru certain circumstances im struggling to find anyone who could travel with me to here at this time of year , so this is maybe a longshot but it cant hurt, but if anyone would possible like to meet up for drinks and chat with me at this time then give me a shout, im a 25 year old male from scotland jsut looking for a relativly relaxing holiday, but i dont really fancy going alone .
me and a friend stayed in the conquistador for a week and we have no complaints at all, the hotel was huge, the room was huge, the food was excellent plenty to choose from, the pool was clean as was the whole hotel, the maids came in every day with clean towels and bedding, all staff were very friendly and the hotel entertainment was superb. Would stay there again, would recomend.
It seems that this hotel has had a shouting at from it's head office as everything seems to have improved vastly. The food needs to be improved a little bit more but this christmas has been a lot more enjoyable than last year.
They need to work a bit more to get the whole hotel looking like the new bar and the pool area but at the moment it is a pleasent stay.
All the staff are friendly but some of the newer staff that work in the restuarent have a slight attitude problem, but nothing horrible.
Its all still very clean as well but i hope to see more in the furture and its well worth booking.
nice hotel, shame about the evening meals
Nice hotel, clean, nice pool area.
Breakfast lovely plenty of choice, everything you can think of for breakfast.
evening meal, gets a bit the same every night, and after eating some fish spent the next day in bed being sick so was scared after that to eat any more fish/meat as didnt feel right for a few days after eating the fish.
wouldnt go back to this hotel as got very bored with the evening meals on offer. repeated the same things most nights.
plus you wont get much sleep on a fri or sat night as its right by a night club. so if your room is near the night club take some ear plugs.
hotel very handy for beach and shops so it is in a good spot plus just over road is a supermarket.
nice spa but its 15 euros a time to use, gym is free but not very good at all, running machines didnt work, not really worth going in the gym not much in there to go on and very very small.
Nice winter time
It was a very nice stay during the winter time.A lot of good food, but the only one problem is the access to the beach, there's no beach at all, just rocks. Sandy beach is about 2km from the hotel. But all the rest is just very goooood.
started bad ended great!
Had a week at the Conquistador and enjoyed our stay though there was problem at the beginning of our holiday.
My girlfriend had stayed at the hotel a few years before with her 10 year old daughter and had highly recommended the hotel.
Check in was swift and in no time we give our room key...our first and only disappointment, the room we had chosen was for single/couple travellers and was nowhere large enough to accomodate a family. However, we paid a further supplement and was given a much larger room that gave us privacy as a couple. The food is exceptional with plenty of choice, the service is second to none, nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The entertainment in the hotel was definately worth watching, a varied selection which was suitable for all ages young or old!
The location of the hotel is superb right next to the beach and is in a quiet location and only 5 minutes to shops, its a 15 minute walk to the nightlife of Las Americas.
I was last in tenerife over 10 years ago and was never in a rush to revisit because of the lager lout mentality that had plagued benidorm and the likes. How times have changed with the regenaration of Las Americas, it really feels more upmarket, what with the superb weather in winter and only a 4 hour flight from the UK , Tenerife and the conquistador is a winner.
We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Tenerife.
Great food, basic room
Just stayed with two friends for a long weeked (4 nights) at the Conquistador. The location was excellent, with a short walk to all the good bars etc. On first entering reception it is very impressive with waterfalls etc and very clean and the staff at the reception were very helpful. The pool area was excellent and I have to say the food was first class. I have stayed at many hotels and the food here was by far the best. Lots of choice and chefs waiting to cook various items fresh. The omelletes at breakfast were first class. HOWEVER, the room was extremely disapointing. Very basic, although clean. A typical room you would find in a 2 star. Saying that for 3 lads it was okay, but I would have complained if I'd been with my partner. All in all I would stay again, but I would make sure I got a better room.
We stayed at this hotel January/February for the third time. It seems to be an excellent hotel from all aspects. The room we had was a junior suite (we were lucky!) and whilst it did not get the sun on the balcony, when you've been down by the pool most of the day, are glad for some shade. The standard rooms have patio windows with sea/pool view - although you have to pay extra for the view unless very lucky! For older guests there is the piano bar each night which seems very pleasant. We noticed this time that the price of drinks from the bar in the hotel were no dearer than bars outside so handy for a nightcap! It is also possible to hire an empty mini bar which we did (of course at an extra cost!) which keeps your drinks cold in your room. There is evening entertainment on each evening though we didn't stay in for this.
A choice of excellent bars in the area - suggest you try Harry's Bar overlooking the musical fountains. The hotel restaurant serves just about every type of food under the sun and generally the standard is high.
It's true the small pool does have some tiles missing, but it didn't cause us any problems. The cold water pool is wonderful! Direct access onto the beach is handy. If staying at Conquistador on half board as we did and want to try a meal out, it is possible to have lunch instead of the evening meal. If doing this, suggest trying Atlantico restaurant in shopping area Santiago Park (IV I think!) they do wonderful steaks in pepper sauce!
It makes for a very relaxing holiday and plan to return in May for a short week.
Great central location! Some bits of the hotel now tired!
Stayed from 21st - 25th March 2007 for a short break away from UK to get some summer sun. Having visited Tenerife many a time over the last few years and been in to have a look around the Conquistador at Xmas in 2006 (due to their fabulous Xmas decorations, you can't help go in and see what this hotel has to offer), we decided to book for our short break. Read the reviews on here that said the bar and pool area had had a face lift and I agree, they were great.
Downside to it all was that the room we were in was number 264 which was a pool view that we had booked and paid for, but it felt like you were detached from the hotel and in a separate wing of the hotel accessed via a short glass walk way! When we arrived the room smelt of dampness/mould and even leaving the door open, every time we returned, the smell still lingered. We had paid for the safe which didn't work and when we reported it, the maintenance guy was along straight away. As the hotel was "fully booked", breakfast was chaos! We had to clear our own table and hunt down our own cutlery! The food was fine, went for the freshly made omelete every day and decided that since breakfast was such chaos to eat out at night due to the fabulous restaurants around and about and Sugar and Spices which is a favourite is only a few minutes away - please go and visit for the finest Italian cuisine in Las Americas. The daytime pool activities were the usual hotel items from the entertainment team although the Sangria demonstration was "class" with the head entertainment guy winding up the dutch member of his team something awful which she took in good fun! Every day there was a "fashion show" of sorts which entertained the men around the pool bar area. The evening entertainment was okay but if you wanted, the bar in the entrance lobby was a safe retreat away from the goings on however the piano music provided a dance floor for the retired guests to strut their stuff. As it was March, there were very few kids in the hotel and the weather was overcast in the mornings but the sun was still up there behind the clouds to burn your skin. All in all a good hotel, great location but the rooms could now do with an overhaul (our patio doors were just about coming away from the wall) and the carpets in the halls were horrible! Meant to be red but stained and faded marks on them gave away the fact that they were tired and I felt let the hotel down.
Very good hotel but...
Went there from april22 to april 29.Very nice holidays in a good located hotel : direct acces to the beach.Room cleaning pretty correct , a good balance of nationalities among the clients.
Food of good and very various quality but the organisation of the entry and the dispatching of food was disapointing.Best day and night animations ever seen since nine years we got the luck of travelling.Pool area cleaned and controlled with high efficiency although staff begins to take away towels too early to our sense.
Internet, arcade plays,billard,pool bar and a very big but
cosy lobby are there.But if you are used to travel some small details
will show you the hotel is from a older generation in some areas
that haven't already been upgraded (the hotel is rather big).
Ask for pool view or ocean view for your room.
Last but not least : the hotel and the whole town and beaches are also organised for people with physical handicap.
