Amy Adejokun Section editor

Aside from the hotel's proximity to the beach and the fact that it's located in a quiet residential area, there isn't a whole lot going for the Interpalace. We found it to be quite tired and dated (although clean and comfortable) and lacking a bit of atmosphere. This maybe because it is not a hotel intended for children (welcome though they are) or because the facilities are shared with the Bonanza across the way. The Interpalace would be best suited those staying for a long period (the rooms are very spacious) but who intend on spending most of their time outside. One to consider but lower down on the list?

    Location 8.85 /10

    The Interpalace is located in a residential zone in the northern resort of Puerto de la Cruz. There lies very little of interest in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, however the beach is only a few minutes' walk away. The town centre, with its restaurants, bars and shops is a good 15 minute walk away, or a five minute taxi ride. If you are arriving by car then you are advised to take the first parking space you see as driving round trying to find one is not advised due to the one way systems. The island's northern airport is located just over 17 miles away while 57 miles separates the hotel with the southern airport.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has only one category of room which should make your choice simple enough! The rooms are very generously proportioned although the décor is a little dated and there isn't enough furniture to fill the room. The bedroom is equipped with the usual desk, bedside tables, armchairs and small coffee table, while there is also a fridge (no charge) and a safe (15? per week). The walls are brightened up with photos of Tenerife while the balcony, also spacious, has plastic garden furniture and looks out to sea or the island's interior and the Teide volcano. The bathroom has no bidet, but it does have a bathtub with shower, hairdryer and personlised toiletries. The general condition of the rooms is not bad, although some of the carpets could do with a clean.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    A grid of yellow-topped balconies makes up the unsightly exterior of the Interpalace. Inside, the low-ceilinged lobby is a little claustrophobic and is appointed with dated seating, although the large flower arrangement at reception helps to liven things up (even if the staff don't). Outside at the pool area, which is surrounded by well kept greenery and a tennis court, the loungers are quite tightly packed around the pools although there is no building blocking the sun's rays, allowing for a full day's bronzing. Depending on where you are lying, you can have a great view of the interior of the island the volcano Teide. One downside is that just outside a road runs along the perimeter of the hotel meaning a little noise pollution. Note that towels require a deposit of 15? but there is no charge for changing them. The kids club, over at the Bonanza Hotel, comprises two shed-like structures next to the main pool, where the children are kept occupied by the animators if the weather is bad. Otherwise the eight animators entertain both kids and adults throughout the day with sports competitions, water gym and cocktail games, while in the evening a professional show is put on after the mini disco. As is usual in the south, these shows feature solo acts rather than lots of performers in a full blown show. The Bonanza also has a small fitness room open to the Interpalace's guests, with a few basic machines as well as a basic spa which offers various types of massage, health treatments and beauty care. Back at the Interpalace, there is a heated indoor swimming pool for when the weather is bad. Other facilities include a small kids playground and a minigolf course. There are coin-operated PCs for surfing the internet situated in the lobby.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The Interpalace has one main buffet restaurant, which, to be honest, is a somewhat grim. It's perfectly clean and serviceable, but the décor and furniture is stuck in the 1970s. The food is exactly the same as that at the Bonanza. An international buffet is served on a 14 day cycle which means that you will never eat the same thing twice during your stay. As soon as lunch and dinner start all the waiting staff is there to greet you in the large dining room. The food is well presented and there is a good choice, especially of adventurous salads, good-looking desserts, grilled meat and fish and wine. The pool bar serves beverages and snacks during the day and there is a separate table for those who are staying on an all-inclusive basis. There are two other bars open in the evening at the hotel: one, the Don Juan, starts serving at 7.30pm, while the other, Casablanca, is only open in winter and is in the room where the evening's entertainment takes place during that same season.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The closest beach is Playa de Martiánez. The beach enjoys fine white sand although this is mixed with a little seaweed once in the water, which is pretty clear. There is plenty of space in which to sunbathe and sufficient loungers, which are available at a fee (all beaches in Spain are public). Even in the high season one does not feel too claustrophobic. Note that it can get quite windy in this part of the coast.

    To know

    The Interpalace was, in the 1970s, a very important hotel, being one of the first in the area. Today however, it is far from being the yardstick it once was (precisely because it doesn't seem to have changed since then). Note that the Interpalace doesn't have a dedicated miniclub for kids although there is one that is shared with the Bonanza.

        Hôtel en ville, situé en haut d'un falaise. Abords de l'hôtel un peu exigus. L'intérêt de cette destination réside surtout dans la découverte de la très belle île de Ténérife qui présente beaucoup d'attraits paysagers. Une location de voiture est indispensable. Un climat trés agréable qui permet de s'y rendre toute l'année. Bien pour se ressourcer.

      • Advantages

        Chambre spacieuse, confortable et lumineuse, en accord avec le standard 4* du pays. Prendre avec vue sur mer. Équipe d'animation jeune, dynamique et sympathique, qui fait beaucoup avec des moyens limités. La restauration est très correcte et variée.

      • Disavantages

        Petite plage de sable noir et de galets, pas directement accessible (20 min à pieds).

      Located by the sea and close to the Lago Martianez aquatic complex, the Atlantis hotel is an outfit with a traditional and somewhat old-fashioned style. Although equipped with a mini-club, it is more convenient for couples rather than families.

      The Perla is a cute little hotel overlooking the sea in the north of the island. It is not the most modern of hotels, however it does have a few nice surprises and some features that mark it out from the other larger properties. Although children are very welcome here, there is no dedicated programme for them or any specific facilities. Yes, it is a fair distance from the beach and it may lack some of the glamour of its bigger cousins, but it does offer great views and spacious rooms as well as a pleasant restaurant with decent food. This is a hotel for couples, both young and old, looking for a peaceful, good value getaway.

      The Semiramis stands right on the rocky shore and is a large and charmless 17-storey building which does, nevertheless, afford breath-taking panoramic views across the sea from the lobby, the guest rooms and the restaurant. To be perfectly honest, this 5* establishment is more what you would expect of a 4* and could do with a bit of a makeover in places. The surroundings here are very (perhaps too?) quiet and the hotel also has a spa and two swimming pools, the first bring indoor and heated, the second of semi-Olympic size. In a nutshell, this place is best-suited to couples of a certain age seeking a relaxing holiday by the sea.

      • Location 9.99

      Despite having been renovated in 1998 (which in hotel terms is quite a while back itself), the style of the hotel has no doubt remained the same since it opened in the 70s. It is a simple hotel with basic services, overwhelmingly catering for the older guest, hence the insistence on keeping the original, slightly dated style. Its location is the best, but it can boast good service and decent food, along with comfortable rooms and good views. Ideal for those simply looking to do very little for as long as possible!

      The Bonanza is a reasonable choice for both couples and families looking for an affordable hotel close to the beach but in a quiet location. It isn't the most modern or good-looking of the hotels in Tenerife, but it has good size rooms, a good choice at meal times and a relatively high number of animators looking after guests both young and old(er). One advantage of this hotel is that guests can use some of the facilities at the Interpalace Hotel across the road.

      Perched on its eagle's nest on the heights of Puerto de la Cruz, the Las Aguilas hotel stands out from other hotels of the island. The services offered are more worthy of a 5* hotel than of a 4*, and will meet the expectations of loving couples as well as children with its countless facilities designed for these categories. Just the right address.

      The Luabay is probably the trendiest, and certainly the youngest, hotel in Puerto de la Cruz. It is a breath of fresh air in an area with many worn out hotels. It has a good range of services, spacious, functional rooms and a very good restaurant. While not entirely focused on families with kids, it does have entertainment for the little ones as well as adults too. Despite its distance from the beach, we'd definitely recommend this cool property for a fun-filled, stress-free break in the sun.
