The resort has a range of accommodation the majority are self catering apartments and studios, there are several good hotels up to 4 star standard offering a variety of board arrangements including all inclusive.
Los Cristianos tends to attract a slightly older holidaymaker in comparison to Playa de las Americas and has managed to keep a little of its original architecture although this is hard to find amongst some of its recent development. What you will easily find is year round sunshine and a choice of pubs, clubs, shops, restaurants (Spanish, English and German) and a fairly relaxed nightlife. The nearby Aquapark Octopus is a must for any family plus the Tenerife Zoo and the Eagles Park are also within easy reach of Los Cristianos.
There are plenty of different restaurants to choose from at Los Cristianos, All tastes are catered for from a 'full English' breakfast to fine dining at its best.
