This small sized charming hotel, pleasantly and warmly decorated, is great for couples in search of quiet and relaxation. The Colo Guanahani offers quality services, but it is not really adapted for families with children and it does not offer any animation.
On the south coast of Tenerife, in Costa Adeje , 490 ft from the oceanfront, close to the new "Urbanizacion Playas del Duque" of Las Americas, a couple of miles from several golf courses. Located 10.5 miles away from the Tenerife Sur airport, it takes 30 minutes to drive to the hotel. The hotel is about 50 miles away from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the island's capital.
An upscale establishment, the Colon Guanahani hotel belongs to the same owners as the 5* Jardines de Nivaria located right next door, and the Roca de Navaria Gran Hotel, also 5*, located a couple of miles north of Playa Paraiso. It does not have a mini-club, but a room near the pool is reserved for children in the daytime.
