Hotels in Tenerife
From cheap beachfront apartments to all-inclusive resorts, Tenerife has a range of accommodation for all types of getaways. Whether you’re looking to get some R&R on a secluded Spanish beach or wanting to be in the middle of all the city nightlife, Tenerife has something that’ll suit your group and your budget.
Found off the coast of West Africa as the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, Tenerife remains a holiday favourite for millions every year. It’s got much more of a family friendly reputation, complete with amusement parks and boat trips to keep little ones entertained all throughout the day. That’s not to forget the incredible year-round sunshine either, plus the impressive after-dark parties. All in all, it’s no wonder you’re considering Tenerife for your next holiday.
Where to stay
Playa de Las Americas
A hub of large resorts, tourist attractions and sweeping beaches, Playa de Las Americas is one of the most well-loved areas in Tenerife. Young people flock to this nightclub mecca for all-night parties and clubs, but it’s also got a softer side to it in the shape of zoos, serene boat trips and water parks. Families wanting some peace and quiet on their holiday should stick to the Patch area, leaving the area around Veronica’s Strip and the Starco Centre to the hardcore partiers.
Just north of Playa de Las Americas is Costa Adeje, an upmarket resort town that’s seen a lot of renovation in recent years. Today, it’s home to recently developed large resorts, making it a haven for those wanting to be pampered in chic surroundings. The area around Playa del Duque is where you’ll find most of the luxury 5-star hotels, while Fañabe has more mid-budget accommodation options.
Puerto de la Cruz
Look to the north of the island for Puerto de la Cruz, a city that’s well-known for its volcanic-sand beaches. Small aparthotels are available in the winding, historic streets of the Old Town, while larger resorts are available further inland. Puerto de la Cruz is close to several of the area’s key sights, including the Loro Park.
Golf del Sur
Much like the name suggests, Golf del Sur is a holiday resort and golf course all wrapped into one. The 27-hole course is popular with keen golfers, while the beach can be found just a 5-minute drive away. Depending on your preferences, you might decide to stay in one of the on-site golfing hotels; alternatively, there are villas and oceanside resorts so that you can get another perspective of this beautiful island.
What to see
With dozens of sights, it’s no wonder that people flock to Tenerife for holiday’s over and over again. Teide National Park contains the highest peak in Spain - Mount Teide, an active volcano. Hikers can follow trails up it, while those short on time can jump into one of the volcano’s cable cars. From the very top, you’ll be able to spy all the surrounding volcanic landscape, as well as the ocean.
Kids adore Loro Porque, a landscaped zoo that features dolphin shows, as well as animals including tigers and penguins. Alternatively, thrill-seekers can let off some steam at Siam Park. It’s an outdoor adventure water park that has something for the whole family to enjoy - from family slides to swimming pools and Thai-filed buildings.
Tenerife nightlife has something that’ll suit everything, whether your idea of a perfect night out is a warmly lit bar or a disco that goes on until the early hours of the morning. Playa de las Américas is known as the place to go for all your holiday nightlife - head out for a walk and you’ll spot bars, live entertainment, karaoke, and even British-themed pubs.
What to eat
Fish rules the roost in Tenerife, but there’s plenty of other Spanis delights on the menu. The toasted flour of gofio is considered a local delicacy, and it’s best enjoyed when mixed with honey, olive oil and almonds to form gofio amasado. Alternatively, try some gofio-coated Canarian cheese.
From sizeable shopping centres to homely farmers markets, Tenerife provides for all shopping tastes. Many of the larger shopping malls can be found to the south of the island, near Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos. This includes the Siam Mall, which is home to over 70 shops across two floors, from international brands to local companies. There’re fashion stores, a supermarket, and dozens of jewelry shops to sink your teeth into.
For something a little more authentic, try your best at scoring a bargain at the Costa Adeje market on Thursdays and Sundays. Held from 9am until 2pm, you’ll be able to pick up some handmade goods as well as some inexpensive fashion duplicates and holiday souvenirs.
