The hotel itself is pretty basic, but it has everything you need. Including a friendly cat who visits the reception frequently. If you're looking for a good holiday on a budget, you've met your match. The pool is a good size, and never massively crowded. Can be hard to get a sunbed in the mornings, and a seat in the bar in the evening. But again, it's not world ending; Just ask to jump onto someone else's table or lie on a sunbed as some did. The evening entertainment was always something new (in the two week period we stayed). The animation team work tirelessly all day. Even when you see them having lunch they're constantly smiling, telling you to enjoy your meal, and stopping to chat. They really do work extremely hard, and better yet, look like they enjoy it. The food was good for the price again. Lots of choice, but even if you struggled always had salad or pasta, as well as freshly grilled meats on offer. Food always fresh and hot. Kitchen staff alwyas around refilling things, and cleaning. The place was always, always clean. Breakfast could've used some more option but still nothing to complain about. You could only get water or wine with lunch and dinner which is slightly annoying but it helped me drink more water so it's a blessing in disguise. The rooms are spacious and cleaned daily. Fresh towels every 2/3 days. Beds are comfy. You don't need much really, you don't live out the day in your room, so you get the basics which I found enough. Overall the stay was enjoyable and I would definitely return. The staff are helpful, the food is good, the weather's hot, and the price is cheap! Don't go expecting more than what you're paying for. Infact, expect less and you'll be pleasantly surprised!
went for a family holiday and kind of knew what to expect from reading past reveiws. 1st day we arrived early and were given our all enclusive band arriving 11.30am went straight to the bar. straight away the plc had a feel of butlins n i was later told it was butlins years ago. its never been done up since the 70's. still in a time warp with its deco. at reception there was a cat that lay on the couch. the couch looks as ifs its walking n minging. a jumble sale would knock it back. the food was ok but very FRENCH oriantated. i went for 10days n am now sick to the back teeth of eggs!!!! still dont understand why your only allowed the use off coffee n juice machine in morning but not at lunch or dinner?!! kids club were fantastic my god they worked for there money n always had the kids joining in. housekeeping were so friendly n helpfull making beds up everyday. plc was kept spotless but a face lift to the plc needed done years ago n hopefully will be done. the snacks at the bar were nice but my kids seemed to love the pancakes
Beautiful location, the surrounding area is nice and quiet and right round the corner is the bus stop to christianos and playas das americas. Rooms were cleaned regularly and spacious, if you plan on using the kitchen facilities id source your own cutlery. Our room was located by the bar so was loud until 11.15 ish every night not a problem for us as we were enjoying the entertainment. Entertainment team was fantastic especially Clara so energetic and smiley lots to get involved with. Pool was clean and plenty of sun beds. Food was a bit hit and miss for us, got a bit repetitive but the effort was there especially mexican nigh. Overall highly recommended.
This is a 3star hotel and it charges 3 star prices. The hotel in general is tired and would benefit from a referb, but it is clean and the staff are great. Yes I agree the beds are uncomfortable, and with no air con any were in the hotel or at least a ceiling fan in the bedrooms, it can be very hot at night. We were ground floor so I was not going to leave the windows open whilst asleep. The food was ok for a week. Yes, there were salads everyday and pasta which was always overcooked. In fact, I would say that most of the food was overcooked, chicken, beef, pork. The thing I really did not like was the drinks. The breakfast coffee was like someone had dredged the local lake, mixed it with water ,added it to the coffee machine, it was awful, truly awful. You can only have wine or water with lunch and dinner. I hated that, not a Diet Coke or fruit juice. Apart from the salads, there was nothing else that was low fat. There was yogurt , no idea what sort, low fat or otherwise, and several sauces with no labels on so you were not sure what you were ladling onto your salad. That was defiantly a double dipping situation with the old finger. Deserts were good, cheese was good, bread was fab, but I warn you you will have to go head to head with some 7 year old welding an ice-cream scoop. They take no prisoners. If they want 5 scoops of chocolate thats what they take. At one point I had to go into combat with very tall 5 year old French child.(But since were are not going to be in the EU, who cares)I won I have to say. Pool was nice and always managed to get a sun lounger(In high season I would not be so sure). Gardens are nice. there is a great bus service not far from the hotel and very cheap and reliable. Remember you are only paying for a 3* hotel and that is what you get.
We arrived late in the evening and had a pleasant enough welcome, though we then had to make our own way through a fairly large complex to our 1st floor rooms. No aircon, TV without remote (though they did rectify this), but don't expect Sky Sports....-), and the beds are absolutely terrible - if you have back problems keep clear. Food wise, I'm not especially fussy but there was little or no thought for children, or vegetarians, each and every day. Then there was the issue of soft drinks. For lunch and dinner, only wine (very bitter) or water was available - if your kids want soft drinks, you have to go to the bar (about 100 yards or so away) and queue to bring a maximum of two very small vending machine sized containers back. All inclusive was 1030 am until 1030 pm, quite restrictive and as soon as 1030 pm came (and it was on the dot) suddenly you had to pay if you wanted a drink. The animation team were fantastic, hard-working and the two ladies (Cara and Angelique I'm sure their names are) so energetic 24/7. The worst thing for us was on our final day of the stay there. We enquired about the period from 12 until we left at 6.30pm and were told that we'd get lunch, but that anything outside that we'd have to pay. Very little flexibility, though they did allow our young son to keep his band but insisted we handed over our bands bang on 12 - and then sent word to the bar not to serve me - I went up for drinks 2 or three times and was served then suddenly was told I wasn't allowed any! Thankfully other guests helped us out, why on Earth should anyone pay out more when they've already paid quite substantially for "all-inclusive" prior to arriving? The queues at the bar were ridiculous in the evenings, and during the day when folk wanted a snack. I've said no to a kids pool as although there is one, it's absolutely tiny and you'd find bigger goldfish bowls. I wouldn't say 3 star, more like 2. Lots of chipped tiles on steps, faded paintwork, and nearby TenBel sadly looks like a warzone now it's been vandalised and left to ruin - only the shopping area there is not damaged. Have to say thanks to Renato behind Reception, he was very helpful but that was about it. We were in Silencio in 1997 and it's went backwards sadly, I know it's called the Coast of Silence but I didn't think it'd be quite so literal. Be aware that quite a few apartments are privately owned so there are dogs running about - they are not dangerous to be fair. Wouldn't go back.
We travelled as 4 friends and found the accommodation to be fine as well as the pool and staff, who were always smiling and very enthusiastic with everything they did. The food let it down badly, the best meal of the day was the breakfast with the freshly cooked omelettes coming out on top. The rest of the day the food was bland and often tough, however the salads were fresh and edible so there was always that to eat as well as pasta. We did resort to eating out on occasion and found a lovely cafe in Las Gulletas as well as a seafront restaurant in Los Cristianos.
Just got back from Tenerife on Friday... had a great time at Palia don Pedro. Made some amazing new friends there. A good mix of people of all nationalities. Food was pretty good, something for everyone. Drinks were ok and unlike previous reviews I would say that queuing wasn't an issue. Occasionally you had more than a couple of people in front of you but if you could see the queue was long just wait a couple of mins and it would die down. Rooms were basic but very clean and comfortable enough. Lack of aircon wasn't the problem I thought it would be, generally there was a nice breeze so with balcony door open and window plus fam going it was fine. Staff were all really friendly. Animation team were fantastic, always smiling and trying to get everyone involved. We joined in with lots of activities that we normally wouldn't bother with. All in all we had a great time and would definitely go back... Good for friends, couples, singles and families....
Average hotel, rooms cleaned every day. There is no air con so it's boiling at night time. Beds were really uncomfortable and the food was not good, pretty much the same everyday and had no taste. Ended up eating out on the last few days as the food in the hotel was making us feel miserable. The pool and bar area was good with plenty of sunbeds. Pay for what you get and would be a good break for a family not really good for young people going on breaks as a couple or friends.
Ignore the bad reviews,we knew what to expect and to be honest it exceeded our expectations. Rooms clean No air con but we slept with the patio doors and window open and it was fine,no noise and we were in room 402 right by the reception and the best thing was no mozzys. Food great Bar staff a bit miserable (but wouldn't you be in that heat serving drunk holiday makers) Entertainment made our stay better,they really do work hard.Clara ran on Duracell batteries I think as she never stopped. Take a walk down into the harbour loads of lovely small bars and cheap too €1 for a large beer and €2 for cocktails. Yes the hotel is a bit dated but it's clean and overall the staff are great. My only complaint is that's it's a family hotel and seeing 5/6 girls arrive by the pool and strip off to be wearing nothing but a cheese string when kids were around was a bit too far for me,I did tell the manager and I think he sorted it as I didn't see them the next day. I'm no prude but there is a time and a place and around a pool full of kids is not one of them. Would I go back? Definitely.
Stayed here for 7 nights - all inclusive at the end of June. The staff were friendly and helpful. The animation team were great and tried to get everyone involved during the day for a variety of activities and were entertaining and fun for all in the evening. Costa del silencio is a lovely quiet location. Montana amarillo is located close by and is scenic and an enjoyable walk from the hotel. Los cristianos is a short journey on the bus and well worth a visit. We travelled as a young couple but can see this hotel is perfect for families with young children. The all inclusive food was of a good standard and variety. Would recommend hotel palia don pedro to friends and family. We would love to return in the future.
