“Excellent location, worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

We stayed in the Tequise Playa from 5th to 26th Jan. 2012 on an All Inclusive Basis, in room 406 overlooking the pools and the beach.
The reception staff were very friendly, efficient and spoke good English.The location is good, the beach, just outside the back gate was ideal for "Refreshing" !!!! swims, water cold but made the hotel pool feel warm.
The room was adequate, on the small side, little room to sit and read, had to go down to the bar area. It was clean but bathroom needs updated, showing signs of age. Water not staying in either wash hand basin or bidet but very quickly fixed by maintainence. A good size safe for 2 euros 20 per day.
Restaurant, There was a good choice for breakfast, lunch & dinner. We never left hungry, on the negative the temperature of the hot food was usually on the cool side, (a microwave was available and was well used by us. Pork featured excessively on the show cooking and hot servery. The wine/sangria was most acceptable and there was Cava available every morning. The staff were excellent, particularly Sami.To those who complain about the food I would like to see what they eat at home.
Bars, again the staff were ist class, both during the day outside and in the evening inside, even remembering what we were likely to order. There was a poor selection of snacks in the outside bar during the day, eg no toasties, only sandwiches, pastries, fruit & yougurt, had to wait to be served along with the beer & spirits, not self service as was the case for the soft drinks.
In the evening the waiters were most attentive to everyone even though a large number of clients were All Inclusive. The Bar Manager & his deputy deserve special mention.
Entertainment- during the day from 11am, a good variety of games were provided by Magda, Laura & Co. In the evening, apart from the usual Parrot, Reptile, Birds of Prey and in house shows there were some very good professional acts, to those who might be critical I would point out that these were free and in some cases were excellent. Unfortunately it was rather cold in this area and a large number of guests had to wear jumpers or fleeces.
A nice touch was the presentation of some of the Senior Management team at a wekly Sangria/Paella demonstration, the Director Adolfo de la Rue (wearing his fleece, it was Jan.)even served the excellent meal cooked by the head chef.
I would recommend the hotel even though I know it requires some refurbishment. Stop looking at the carpets, enjoy the good things, great staff, great location and good value for money

Room Tip: Try from 3rd floor up, rooms farthest away from the town end are quieter. If you want evening sun yo...

Arrived early in the evening, check in very easy, directed to our room on the 3rd floor. Found room to be very clean although a bit dated. However the bathroom badly needed to be refurbished as the grout was missing between tiles, the sink and toiled were dull and worn and we often found little insects running around. The view from balcony was lovely, looking over pool and sea. Would not advise leaving young children unsupervised as the balcony is quite low.
We then went down to the dining room for our evening meal. The restaurant was again quite dated the chairs having makeshift covers. The food seemed average at this point, a selection of salads, meat, fish & veg, but this soon became quite monotonous. Often the veg would be so overcooked it was limp and squelched in the mouth. I also found some chicken to be raw on the inside. Having said this, we did also try going out for our meal and made the mistake of trying the Chinese buffet over the road, not a very good move. Here we noticed the food was being continuously topped up rather than replaced with fresh, (not very hygienic).
The pool area had plenty of sunbeds, two pools of different depths and a children's splash pool. There was a pool bar for drinks and snacks. Soft drinks such as coke, Fanta and soda water were on a help yourself basis. Snacks were basic, offering a choice of sandwiches, pastries, fruit & yogurt.
The entertainment was poor, parrot show, bird of prey display, magic show and an awful dance show that started out with some quite good dancing to music from shows such as Cabaret, Grease, etc. but then went on to just some dancing to chart music? In all I think this hotel would be a good base to stay maybe just on a bed and breakfast basis.

Room Tip: Perhaps a higher floor

stayed at this hotel in December and we had a wonderful holiday after we had a change of rooms. It is preferal for us to be in the centre of the hotel as it is a long walk for the lifts on the sides of the building when you have arthritis. We are returning in a months time for another break..... we love the little town and the hotel. One negative comment the carpets are a little worn and the rooms will need some care in the next few years . We have emailed the hotel before we go so we can have a central room overlooking the pool on any floor between 3 up, hopefully they will honour our request ..

Room Tip: centre of the hotel convenient......sides quieter but too far from the restaurant,,,all rooms we wer...

We are frequent visitors to Lanzarote and Costa Teguise in particular. We have known of Hotel Grand Teguise Playa but not stayed there before, so looked on Tripadvisor to see what people had said. Now, I guess everyone speaks as they find it and there certainly are some mixed reviews. I can see why, but let's be realistic. This is a very grand hotel but it has been there a while. It remains grand but of course there are some signs of wear. OK, agreed, some carpet could do with replacing in the corridors. But the rooms were comfortable, good views. The food was excellent with wide choice (buffet style). The entertainment was quite agreeable. The staff work hard and were polite and friendly.
All in all our week's stay was excellent value for money. Our scepticism about going full board was quite unfounded (though we enjoyed going out elsewhere for tapas at lunchtime!). It was perfect for access to the beach and a very good location for the walking and cycling we had planned. We would definitely go back.
