Las Piramides resort lies in Playa de las Américas on the southwestern coastline of Tenerife. This area is best known for it’s vibrant nightlife. If you are looking for a quiet holiday then this is not the resort for you.
Las Piramides Resort, Playa de las Americas
Las Piramides resort contains 366 rooms in total. Most rooms are either 1-2 bedrooms or studio apartments. We actually stayed here in March 2016 and were happy with everything. This is despite reading some terrible reviews.
Everyone we met and spoke to was of the opinion that this hotel provides great value for money. You get exactly what you are paying for when visiting Las Piramides.
Las Piramides Resort Reception Area & Bar
As you walk into the main entrance there is a big reception area and welcoming staff waiting to check you in. The staff take your passport and give you your room key.
Opposite the reception there are computers to access the internet. There are various machines to purchases room extras and snacks. To the right of the computers is a convenient supermarket. This store is well stocked and caters for anything you could need during your stay. The shop stocks all types of foods and snacks along with normal and alcoholic drinks.
Passing through a small corridor next to the shop there is a lovely bar and entertainment area. The friendly bar staff are waiting to take your drinks order (Image above, far left is author Wes Dunn). Inside the bar there a smaller bar which serves drinks to the people outside around the pool area.
Restaurant & Pool Area
The restaurant is located on the lower level and provides 3 excellent meals each day. This includes Continental, Spanish and English breakfasts and cuisine. The food was one area where Las Piramides excelled. There was always a good choice of delicious food available for each meal.
Apart from the actual building structure that could do with a paint. The inside and outside of this hotel is immaculate and the rooms were lovely and clean. All upper levels are reachable from one of the many lifts in this hotel. No stairs to negotiate if you are not up to it.
Outside there is a main pool and a smaller pool to the right. The staff here do an excellent job in keeping everyone entertained. Both during the day and the evenings when there is often some sort of live entertainment
Outside Las Piramides & Nightlife
The first thing you see as you exit the main entrance is Mount Teide Volcano. This awesome volcano dwarfs Las Piramides resort and most of the surrounding area. Within a minutes walk there are tons of bars, restaurants and all types of shops along the main strip.
As we mention above, this area is more suited to those who like to party a little. All the top bars, restaurants and clubs are no more than a 10 minute walk from this Las Piramides Resort.
For value for money, this is an excellent all inclusive hotel in Tenerife. The party atmosphere is never far away. The only down side is the shape of the building which is quite ugly. It tends to have the inner apartments facing each other with no spectacular views on offer. When you are on a budget in Tenerife, who cares what sort of view you are getting from your hotel?
The main swimming pool for Las Piramides Resort is located just outside the bar area. The pool area has sunbeds on all sides. You will need to be up early to grab a sunbed. If all else fails you will find one by the smaller pool which is not as busy.
