We spent 2 weeks at the Hotel Sensatori Tenerife, near the little town of Alcala. We booked through the tour operator Thomsons as part of a package. Sensatori is their brand name for the hotel and how they market it in the UK. The hotel's actual name is Palacio de Isora, part of the Gran Melia chain.It is located in the south west of the island. This is supposed to be one of the sunniest spots on Tenerife. We did have lovely weather most of the time, but also about 3 days of driving rain. Apparently this is highly unusual and a freak weather front was to blame.The location is perfect, just 5 minutes walk from the little town of Alcala, 40 minutes drive from the airport, c...Read More

Dining at this hotel is a sumptuous experience - wonderful food, beautiful surroundings and plenty of choice. We stayed here 14 nights, ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel every evening, lunch there 5 times but never felt bored or tired of the food.We had booked the Full Board Plus package - this meant we got 3 meals a day with house wine, beer and soft drinks included with lunch and dinner.Breakfast is served in the Pangea restaurant. There is a big indoor seating area and a reasonably large outdoor area with views over a little lake. Most mornings we did get to sit outside. The choice at breakfast was superb - a huge array of cooked foods (sausages, bacon etc.), eggs co...Read More

There is so much to do in this hotel, you could almost fill a fortnight with the different activities they lay on. We were certainly spoilt for choice and had to make some tough decisions in order to be able to fit in enough sightseeing.There are 5 swimming pools in total. 2 of these are family pools which cater especially for children, but the remainder are adult focussed. There is a Red Level pool - adults only, the Red Level zone being an upgraded area of the hotel for those aged 18 plus. It is their premium area, but you get some luxurious extras such as butler service, use of this Red Level pool and a private restaurant and bar.There is a further adult pool and the pie...Read More

This hotel caters brilliantly for children and is the ultimate family destination. Children of all ages are catered for and every day brought lots of new and fun activities for our son.If your children like swimming, there are 2 swimming pools especially for them. The family pool - quite large, heated and in a lovely location was where we spent most of our time with our 9 year old. The age range varied in this pool, there were some little children but generally it seemed to be most popular with 6-12 year olds. You were not allowed to bring inflatable pool toys, children splashed around and swam and generally had a great time.The Pirate Pool catered more for younger children...Read More

There is so much on offer to do at this hotel during the day - for children, adults, sporty types, couch potatoes - something for absolutely everyone. This continues into the evening too - there are evening shows for adults and children, lively bars, a disco and plenty of quiet places to just relax and have a drink and enjoy the warm evening air.There are numerous bars dotted around the hotel. The main indoor bar has a DJ playing chill-out music most evenings. We were particularly taken with some of the seating at this bar - enormous 4 poster type beds, where you could lounge with your drink. Very unusual and great fun.Outside there are several more bars. There is a piano ...Read More
