Spotlessly clean, staff very friendly and helpful, meals superb, drinks great, animation team very good, couldn't ask for a better all inclusive package, have already booked my next holiday here. What more can I say.
The Hotel Palia Don Pedro is an excellent complex. The staff are wonderful. They could not be more helpful. The food is second to none. I simply could not fault the variety of foods available. The rooms are a little tired but spotlessly clean. The hotel pool is beautifully maintained. JUST GO !!
I stayed here with 3 of my friends (we're aged 23-24) and the hotel was a great choice. Firstly the animation team were absolutely amazing, so friendly, enthusiastic and engaging, especially Ousna and Olivia who really made our holiday and made such an effort with us! The whole team worked really hard and obviously enjoyed what they do, interacting well with both adults and children. The hotel offered a range of activities and often have people in the lobby who you can book excursions with. As everyone has mentioned the rooms are a little dated but if you're only using them to sleep it's not a big deal! Has a little kitchenette with a hob and a fridge which we used for drinks, etc. Rooms cleaned every day and up to a good standard, however in one of the rooms they kept getting ants around the bathroom sink! There is a variety of food on offer however often not labelled so can't be 100% sure what some of it is! We had a vegan and a veggie which was only difficult because no allergens were advised, however they both managed to eat - there is also a full salad bar every day. The same serving utensils are also often used for different dishes (sometimes being used for meat dishes and then veggie) however I feel that is more to do with the customers. The all inclusive bar is open 10.30am - 10.30pm the beer is San Miguel and there are lots of branded spirits. A bit annoying at how small the cups are and the fact they are plastic and no recycling bins are provided! They also serve burgers/hot dogs/toasties between breakfast and lunch, and crepes between lunch and dinner. We were at one point served mouldy bread though! Not far from a few little supermarkets, bars and excursion places. We didn't manage to find an accessible beach however on the last day Ousna advised us where it was! So don't be afraid to ask. Buses run all day and night to Las Americas for 2 euros but takes about 40 minutes, the bus stop is just round the corner. We have been told that taxis are roughly 20 euro and take about 25 minutes. The evening entertainment I feel is hit and miss and some of the songs played throughout the day are not censored so maybe not ideal for young children. But again, the animation team really are amazing!
Stayed at the don Pedro from 20th May for a week . The hotel is a little dated but it does the job , the reception staff are very friendly and even went out there way to chase our return transfers up for us and printed it all out , we had a studio for two, and it was fine with a fridge , we used to store milk for a early morning brew , take a travel kettle not any in room . The food was great and plentiful, breakfast was same every day but plenty of choice if you want to try the overseas options, lunch and dinner always something to try two different meats and fish dishes with chef doing steaks or pasta at the corner station separate, on some reviews people have moaned about the food we could not fault it these people must want 5star food for next to nothing money wise , take no notice of these reviews! The pool is larger than it looks in photos if a little cold for me , sun beds plentiful and cleaned regularly. We where on the all inclusive and the beer is proper San Miguel small plastic cups but that just means it won’t go warm like a large one would and if your on it all day smaller is better , try the honey rum it’s really nice . The animation team are great want you to join in but don’t pressure you they are on the go all day, don’t think they have a big budget to put stuff on and do a great job with what they’ve got , archery,bowls,rifle shooting, football and daft games in day and the normal stuff at night .Not to much round the hotel some bars to the right and a few more on main road, would be a good base if you like walking , good bus links to las Americas and beyond. All in all a cracking hotel which we will be back too without a doubt
Well, we've never stayed anywhere five times, so why do we keep coming back? Part of it has to be value for money. The food is great, plenty of choice on a weekly rota. The rooms are large, if minimally furnished, the beds are comfortable and cleaned daily (sheets every third day). The gardens and grounds are shady and lovely with mature palms and plants. The pool is large and there is a lifeguard on duty all day. Then there are the staff, everyone is warm, friendly and helpful and the entertainment team are superb and will (gently) persuade you to join in the games where you can get to meet your fellow guests. The hotel caters for International guests so you are likely to meet people from all over Europe and beyond. This promotes a really nice friendly relaxing vibe which we love. Mustn't forget 'Mich' the hotel cat who is generally available for strokes and ear rubs in Reception when not on his rounds. This hotel will not suit the 'Ten Bob Millionnaire's' expecting five star luxury for one star money, but I feel you get superb value for money and a very relaxed atmosphere to chill and unwind. ....and yes we are booked to go back again!
Stayed here for a week with my cousin and a friend for some winter sun. The hotel at this time of year was a little quiet so plenty of sun loungers around the big pool they have there. The rooms were spacious with a small kitchen, good sized bathroom and a balcony. We had the all inclusive for our stay, the food was very good with lots of choice.Sometimes the restaurant would be quiet busy as people off the street can come and pay for breakfast and lunch here. There is not much to do in this area, but the walks around had awesome view of Mount Teidi (we went to the top to watch the sunset, worth every minute) there is a bus stop near by for you to travel to Las America's or further.
So Yes the place is a bit dated but for a cheap break was really good value ! The choice of food at breakfast, lunch and dinner was great , all freshly cooked and replenished regularly. Pool was cold but the weather hadn’t been the best whilst we were there. Animation team were great , not too intrusive and no pressure to join activities. Our room faced the pool and that was ok For us although the floor had a big crack near the patio door which was quite dangerous if no shoes on. This was fixed on our last day of 4 so could have been quicker but it was the weekend ! Overall for a cheap 4 day break great value and if the sun had shone a bit more would have been perfect for us. Not much to do round the area but beautiful morning walks watching the sunrise was great for me !
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights at the start of May. We booked a studio via loveholidays, all-inclusive for £ 171.00 The receptionist (Renato) was friendly and efficient and quickly checked us in. We had emailed the hotel in advance to request a room on the first floor, away from the pool & bar area. We were provided with the all inclusive wristbands and information and were very pleased to find we had been given a free upgrade to a one bedroom apartment (407). The apartment itself appeared to have been recently refurbished. The bathroom had a new bath with an efficient shower attachment and we always had plenty of hot water. Hand & bath towels were provided (no flannels). Toilet paper (+spare roll) and soap were provided (but no other toiletries). There was an openable window, however the only lighting was above the vanity basin which made the room quite dim at night. The bedroom had two single beds with a bedside cabinet in between, two chairs and a wardrobe unit with hanging space (and hangers) and 4 shelves (including the safe (15€ pw + 10€ deposit)). Strangely, there was no door to the wardrobe, however this did not bother us. The beds were quiet and comfortable. Extra blankets and pillows were in the wardrobe. The lounge area had a 4 seater sofa, armchair, coffee table and small table for the phone. The (old style) TV (20€ deposit for the remote) had 20+ channels in various languages (The only reliable English channel was Sky news.) The kitchen area was clean and functional with a two ring electric hob, sink and fridge (small freezer). A pan, cutlery, plates, cups and saucers were provided, but no glasses or kettle. Outside the lounge was a good size balcony with a table and two chairs. There was an extendable washing rack attached to the wall. The view from the balcony was towards the mountains. We found the food at all meals was very good with lots of choice. A microwave is available if you need it. Breakfast was between 08.00 & 10.00. This was the only time that the coffee and juice machine was available. A range of cereals, fruit, yogurt, cold cuts, cheese, bread, eggs, bacon, sausages, fried bread, hash browns and a toaster. There was also an egg chef preparing fried eggs, omelets and pancakes. Lunch was between 13.00 & 15.00. There was a good variety of meat, fish, vegetables, salad and desserts, however, few things were labelled. The only drinks available were wine and water and no drinks were allowed to be brought in (even from the on-site bar). Dinner was between 19.30 & 21.30. Again, a good range of options, with a few more dishes labelled. The same drinks policy applied. In between meal times, snacks (burgers, hot dogs, chips, pastries & crepes) were available from the pool bar. Activities were available throughout the day. Evening entertainment was limited. There was a singer one night, and a dance-quiz another night but the entertainment team (and an enthusiastic audience) resulted in both nights being better than we expected! Unlimited drinks (2 per person at a time) were served in plastic cups (as the bar is next to the pool) , good measures for spirits and rarely a queue whilst we were staying. The all inclusive finished at 22.30 but the bar remained open until 23.00, but you had to pay for drinks of course. There were plenty of sunbeds with some (fixed) parasols, and the pool was large so never a problem getting a sunbed. Pool towels were available from reception for a €10 refundable deposit and a usage charge of €7 for a week (which seemed unnecessary). We found our stay at the Don Palio to be very enjoyable. Housekeeping was good and staff were all friendly and helpful. Overall, we found this hotel complex excellent value for money and we would not hesitate to stay here again if we were in the area. I hope you found this review helpful.
We stayed here in May, it was a last minute trip for a break in the sun, having read the reviews we did not expect too much especially given what we had paid but we were pleasantly surprised, its easier to break into bite size chunks to review. Staff - all staff were very polite and helpful, the animation team work very hard and are great at entertaining. Hotel/Rooms - As in other reports, the hotel appears a bit tired in places, the rooms are basic and could do with a little maintenance. The shower in our room was pretty weak and never got really hot and the mattress on one of the beds was probably past its best. The positives, the room, ground and facilities are all clean and tidy, the room although basic was adequate for our week's stay. Never bothered with the TV although I can see what people mean, we tended to watch stuff on a tablet as the 4G signal was really good. Food - I can honestly say, we thought the food was some of the best we have had in an all inclusive deal (including some much more expensive places) and I am quite fussy with food. Great variety, fresh, breakfasts with egg chef offering omelettes, fried eggs etc. In the evening they prepared fresh fish, grilled meats, exceptional paella. Area - Silencio is a very quiet area, there are a few bars and shops nearby and Las Galletas is only a short walk away to the marina and small beach, you do pass a derelict shopping centre which is quite strange and like something from a film set. My advice would be if you want lots of sandy beaches, nightlife and theme parks etc, go somewhere else like Los Christianos. Most of the people I met had similar feelings but if you want a quiet, cheap get away then this hotel is good and although I don't tend to go to the same place twice, I wouldn't rule out coming back to the hotel.
Toilets are to the side of the outside bar. wi-fi is useless BUT you can join the local wi-fi for free. Rooms are a bit sad, BIG point....you get a fridge, keep cold drinks by you. No air con and when we went end of last year it was HOT. took beds from bedroom put under fan in lounge...bliss. Cleaners and manager saw and just laughed. What can I say back next week...taking family. I reckon it's a good holiday.
