excellent post winter break.
Stayed for a week at the end of March 2014 with my husband. The apartment would of been marked up as excellent, but we were on the road side! Tends to be very busy and the sun is only on the balcony near midday. Noise was not a problem. It was colder at nights, but there was ample furry blankets on offer. Prices at the pool bar reasonable. plenty shops, supermarkets nearby. Restaurants galore at extremely reasonable prices. excellent location for covering that side of Tenerife on foot. Would not of liked to bring young children here as at the weekends the Stag/hen dos arrived and the pool area got loud which did not bother us but language does get 'rougher' the more cervatha gets consumed! All in all excellent holiday and will look into booking again here.

week winter holiday
We stayed at the oro blanco in march, we got to our apartment from our Thomas cook transfer which was great with no problem. The reception at the apartment was very helpful friendly. We got our room and was really pleased with our two bed apartment. Yes it was basic but we dif not book five star. It was clean loads of room overlooking the pool. The whole week was fantastic with bars and night life very close. The service in the apartments was five star they could not have been more friendly and helpful. We had a couple of snacks in the pool bar and were lovely. The location is fantastic for everything. All in all i could not find a single fault with Thomas cook or the oro blanco apart from it was not long enough. I would recommend this to anyone going to tenerife. One happy customer.

Nice relaxing complex, not recommended if you want a beach holiday
We had a nice relaxing time here but would ask for block E or F next time, blocks A&B are above the restaurants and on the road, the smell is not very nice if you want to sit out on your balcony.
Overall we had a lovely stay here and would go back there.

Good value for money in an excellent resort
Stayed in Room 209 which was a studio with a view overlooking the main road. Returned from a 2 week holiday on 18th Deb 2014.The main road was noisy but we got used to it. More annoying was the noise when people returned in the early hours of the morning - its seemed to echo along the corridors - I think better design/ sound proofing would be a great idea .
Overall we really enjoyed our holiday and would return to this hotel and resort.
Excellent walkway along the seafront which goes from Los Christianos to Las Americas and Costa Adeja. Numerous restaurants and in general the special offer set meals were not good value or quality (except for China Garden -Banquet for 2 with bottle of wine)
Good restaurants were Montana, Pompeii, Toro & Grill and Martini. A nice Café we visited was Loch Ness along the seafront towards Costa Adeja

winter sun in tenerife
this was a great and affordable package. i would definitely recommend to any one on a budget in need of some winter sun. negatives... the apartment floor felt unwashed on bare feet and i threw my slippers in the bin at the end of the week they were so filthy. the other negatives.. no one explained what or where the " club" part of it was and that we were able to use any other hotels facilities, still dont know if we missed out and yes we did attend the rep meeting. the only other slight problem was one of the street sellers sold us a dodgy watch so we were done out of 5 euros. none of this spoilt our holiday and we really had a great time i would still recommend and we may go back next year!

great for families and young groups
went on a lads holiday a group of 18 year old boys to this hotel, they have to blocks and try there best to sepeate the rooms from families to young groups, about a 5/10 min walk to the main strip and the staff are great 24h night guard who was very polite and made shire we where all ok every night.
the pool was very clean and had a relaxed fell to it and the food and drinks where very reasonably priced. the free bus stop for the siam park is literally outside but if you do want to walk there takes about 15mins to its a very central location but doesn't have all the sound pollution at night form the strip.
brilliant holiday hopefully going again here with my best friend in summer 2014

smelly and noisy
I visit tenerife every year but this was the first time we had every went for New year. Myself , husband and daughter stay in the Vulcano every year but choose a slightly cheaper option of self catering within the Oro blanco for New year. We love Las Americas but the room was absolutly disgusting, it smelled of stale smoke, infact everything from the beding to the towels in the bathroom smelled. We never spent anytime in the room and dreaded sleeping in it. Every night it was like there were people doing obstacle courses in their rooms... Soo noisy. I have advised everyone I know on facebook never to go to these apartments.
Very uspetting as this did spoil our holiday !!
