What a great experience we had at the Hesperia - we wanted somewhere to relax and enjoy without our three (fab) kids - first time in 11 years and the Hesperia delivered just that. It's located just 15 mins drive from the airport, without suffering from any aviation sight or noise though. Has three great pools, small private beach, pleny of loungers and different places to relax and two good beach bars. Breakfast to die for with amazing choice - to top it off, they even had chocolate fountain and Cava (which we enjoyed...a lot). Room was great (although mini bar was on the blink). Totally amazing Spar and gym facility (50 euro extra for the week, mind - but well worth it if you're remotely into that sort of thing!). We had a hire car but only drove to the hotel and back to the airport (with a trip to Playa Blanca which was a wait of time) - so you could easily just taxi to the hotel and back. There's an amazing port (puerto calero) 10 min romantic walk way along a nicely built and lit big path way. The port has some great places to eat and a few shops, supermarket, pharmacy etc - all nice an up-market. We visited in ealy October - weather was hot! If you want a really nice place to visit and chill, this is it - not much more to do that just that so I'd say kids 6-12 would get a bit bored - but for adults not wanting much more that a realing time 10/10! Oh yeah, blokes have to wear long trousers to eat there in the evening, but actually we prefered to visit the port!
This hotel is ideally situated for all you would want from a holiday. The rooms themselves are large in size and have everything you require. If there was to be one gripe it would be that although kettle etc is supplied in the room, after the first day you have to pay for a tea/coffee tray. Basic tea/coffee could be left daily I would suggest. Other than that this is a hotel I would keep returning to.

The Volcan is the best hotel my wife & I have stayed at. From the superb reception area, with waterfall of several metres, through the paths & passageways, down to spacious, clean, bright rooms. Ours came with a private patio overlooking the main pool in the hotel,
Use of fridge & safe included in the room, which was beautifully cleaned each day, ready for our return.
We stayed on a B&B basis, and the breakfast buffets were superb. Loads of choice, with some special showcases of Canarian or other Spanish foods on some days.
Something to consider would be going for the full or half board option though. We didn't check this out at the time, but you will be paying somewhere over 25 Euros per night for 2 people to eat out. There are several eating places in the hotel, and the Marina is just a 5-10 minute walk away, where there are dozens of places to eat.
