IBEROSTAR TORVISCAS PLAYA TENERIFE REVIEW

Ollie and I recently discovered Iberostar Hotels & Resorts and after having the most fab holiday at Iberostar Marbella Coral Beach we decided to visit Tenerife. I booked us into a Double Superior Front Sea View Room at the Iberostar Torviscas Playa, which is in Costa Adeje, right next to the beach, overlooking the marina. It was perfect for Ollie who’s obsessed with everything to do with boats.

Before booking I had a look on lots of different sites to compare prices such as onthebeach, Trivago and Expedia etc. Over the years I’ve found it’s sometimes cheaper to book through a travel agent or comparison site and at other times less if you book direct. We were going over New Year which is a ridiculously expensive time to go on holiday anyway, but as it happens it worked out cheaper to book direct. So I got our flights through Thomson, the hotel through Iberostar themselves and transfers through Holiday Taxis.

As some of you might know I was really ill with tonsillitis whilst on this holiday so didn’t get to see much of Tenerife. However, as I spent most of my time in the hotel I guess that puts me in a good position to give it a review….

Iberostar Torviscas Playa is located in Playa de Torviscas and is 12.4 miles from the Tenerife South Airport. In my opinion it’s in the perfect place. As I said previously, it’s right next to the beach and marina. But it’s also on the doorstep of lots of shops, restaurants and bars. As I was ill on this holiday the main place I spent my time was the room! We actually ended up moving as the first one smelt of mould. Apparently the hotel is shutting down to be renovated in April so most of the rooms are really tired and old. Both that we stayed in were really spacious and well laid out with balconies, but my favourite was the second by far. It was slightly bigger than the first and the balcony was massive because the room was at the front of the hotel, but on the side.

In terms of food we choose to go all-inclusive, but this hotel offers many different meal plans including full board, half board, bed and breakfast and room only if you’re planning on eating elsewhere. Obviously being struck down with tonsillitis meant I didn’t venture out much but that was fine as the food in the hotel was pretty good. On a side note and just in case you’re wondering I don’t actually have any tonsils. So unlike all the times I’ve had tonsillitis before I wasn’t completely put off of food. Weird I know. But then who knew you could get tonsillitis when you’ve had your tonsils out? Anyway….

Entertainment wise, there’s loads to do at Iberostar Torviscas Playa. They have something on several times a day. I saw dancers in one of the bar areas and by the pool too. They’ve got every type of sports activity you can think of including things like yoga, aqua aerobics and tai chi. That’s just to name a few. There’s also an on-site animation team who were always on the go. They were fab, just like all of the staff at this hotel.

I would like to go back to Tenerife and check this place out after it’s has it’s refurb. I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be really good. Rumour has it that it will be upgraded from a 4* to a 5* once it’s done, so this I would really like to see.

Have you ever been to Tenerife?

If so, do you have any recommendations of where to go?

  • I never knew that you could get tonsillitis when you don’t have tonsils! I love Tenerife and have been around 4/5 times. The hotel we stayed in most often has recently been renovated and my brother stayed there in Jan & said it was fab! It’s this one https://www.dreamplacehotels.com/en/hotel-tigotan

  • Oh no! I’m sorry you didn’t feel well during your trip, but I’m sure the next time around you’ll be able to enjoy much more and venture out. I’m at least happy to know that you were happy with the hotel for the most part. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great day, girlie!
