Las Costas, ( 4 stars)
Located right by the long, fine sandy beach of Playa de los Pocillos on a main road in the tourist centre of Puerto del Carmen, this seaside hotel offers complimentary buffet breakfast to its guests to ensure a tasty and healthy start of the day. After the light snack, patrons can remain within the complex by the lovely outdoor pool, head out to the beach or play a game of snooker or table tennis. Those who like to stay in good shape can have a workout in the on-site gym or take part in an aerobics class, and later unwind in the sauna. The hotel's restaurant provides not only fantastic local and international dishes, but a rich entertainment programme to its guests.
