The Barceló Varadero, situated right on La Arena beach in the southwest of the island of Tenerife next to the majestic Los Gigantes cliffs. The area renowned for having the best weather on the island. This is an ideal hotel for families.
Built on an area covering 21,000 square meters, in Creole architectural style, the hotel offers a wide range of facilities and services to offer guests total satisfaction, with different and extensive areas of gardens and pools distributed in the form of a cascade at different levels.

Very smelly landfill site directly under the windows!

Smelly landfill site directly under the windows (see my photo)!!! Rickety bed frame. Far from beach. Rich but not tasty breakfast. Very cold pools there. Not good value for the money:-(

Good place if you have a young family & don't mind noise

Good facilities and catering was fine despite what others have written. Coffee only available at breakfast time and long queues for only 2 machines, which often ran out of milk, but apart from that, no complaints. Apartment is fine and functional, though would have been good to have a kettle and microwave. We could have done with a microwave in particular for sterilising bottles for our baby, but staff allowed us to use the (only) microwave in the restaurant whenever we needed to. Facilities were great - lots of pools, sunloungers and things for children to do. Pools aren't heated, so if the weather's not hot you do notice the cold. Staff were fantastic, particularly Israel on Reception and all of the restaurant staff, who could not have been more friendly and helpful. The one real downer was the noise. Maintenance and cleaning trolleys constantly up and down the tiled walkways, and some nights, the moving of furniture around (presumably for cleaning) and door slamming didn't stop all night. There's also a lot of loud music playing by the pools so you can't catch up on sleep in the day much either. Fine if you're not bothered by that, but it did mean that we and our baby didn't get much sleep all week. Overall, a good value holiday and great staff, but noise levels let the place down.
