Cheap hotel's in the Area?

  • Just wondering if you guys know of any cheapish hotels in Puerto Santiago/Los Gig/Playa la Arena that are any good. Me and some mates are thinking of coming over next year after our exams and i'm just trying to find out what the best deal is at the moment.

    That and how old you have to be in Tenerife to book a room or series of them for a week.

    Cheers everyone

  • Depending on what you want, whether it be a hotel or apartment, I always prefer apartments, there?s load being advertised on this site.
    DONT TOUCH THE VAREDO BARCELO in Playa Arena, it is a complete dump

  • Try Tamaimo Tropical in Puerto Santiago.  They take groups of single sexes.

  • Do you really want to come to this area? It is not exactly a ?let your hair? down after exams place.
    Neither does it have the largest choice of budget type Hotels.  Perhaps you are just coming to play football?

    You obviously know the area from your previous postings. There is no age limit for booking Hotels.
    You would need access to a Credit/Debit Card if a deposit is required or to take payment if you do
    not cancel prior to arrival etc.

    If you are old enough to travel on your own, that should suffice.

  • Cheap hotels you wont find in this area. The Tamaimo Tropical has a lot guests moving out after complaining to their reps the food is horrible and greasey, family members of mine stayed there last year it was a nightmare. But it depends on what you want ???

    The Barcelo hotels are not cheap, however the Barcelo Vardero is reasonable for a weeks stay, especially if booked on hotelbeds.com,,Agreed its not the most luxurious of hotels,, however the food is very good, the service is good, the staff are friendly, and the rooms are adequate.
    My brother and his family where their over Christmas, apart from the bad weather they had a good time, the entertainment was good everynight, the pools and animation where great, the food fabulous. Okay the rooms where very basic,, but you dont come away for home comforts,, unless your paying for five star service .....!

    So make up your own mind, and get as many recommendations as possible.

  • I sent ORANGE a private message last night, in response to the posting on this subject. For some reason ORANGE posted it on the 3 Kings Night posting !!!

    Enigmatic Charismatic wants to know about cheap hotels in this area and ORANGE replys..... Do you really want to come to this area

    During the next year tourism is going to suffer and businesses are going to have to try and survive on everything they can get. To try and put people off coming here is just stupid and i'll repeat the statement I made that ORANGE is an AR*E  and should think before posting such a comment. ORANGE is obviously not a business owner or the statement would not of been made.

    Everyone should welcome tourists to this area whether they are Young, Old, 7 foot or 3 feet tall. To try and put people off is just crazy.

    ORANGE should hang their head in shame.

    And if ORANGE wants a battle, lets see how many people think I am an AR*E for suggesting we welcome ALL TOURISTS to the area and how many people think ORANGE is an AR*E for suggesting some tourists might want to look elsewhere to Holiday !!!

    Comments Welcomed...................................................

  • Judge John Deed is of course taking my reply out of context.

    ?Do you really want to come to this area? It is not exactly a ?let your hair? down after exams place.?

    Having had or been aware of the private message after the 3 Kings Postings with no reference to anything else,
    it was simple to associate the two.

    This does not make it proper to send insulting and threatening, intimidating, menacing messages.

    You should be debarred...

  • If I am taking ORANGES reply out of context, how many tourists are doing the same ?

    Who is ORANGE to decide what the meaning of letting your hair down is ?

    For all you know their idea of letting their hair down is sittin by a pool enjoying the scenery.

    Not all qualified students are Alcoholic Nightclub Seekers.

    So this area is perfect for them to chill out, besides there are hundreds of young people who come here year after year and enjoy themselves.

    So the area must have something for them and for people of all ages.

  • Perhaps you are just coming to play football?  Was a clear indication
    that a less common purpose for ?exam chill out? had been acknowledged.

    Why don?t you let the original poster reply as to their intentions?

    How many young people come to this area on their own volition is open
    to debate.

    I do not need to trade insults to make a point, nor do I have to personalise them
    to do so.

  • I agree with the Judge. Not all students are drunks. I knew one in 1972 who definitely wasn?t a drunk.  But the other 3998 definitely were. I don?t remember if I was one of them. In fact for some inexplicable reason I remember very little other than a vague recollection of some  appearance in a magistrates court at which my specialist knowledge of criminal law was found wanting. At that time I certainly would not have thanked anyone who recommended a holiday in a place like Los Gigantes which lacks facilities for student types (no casualty department with stomach pumps).
