Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 7.46 /10

    Bonanza is in the eastern end of the Puerto de la Cruz resort in the north of Tenerife. Although not far from other hotels and the commercial area, it is in a relatively quiet spot inhabited by locals. The nearest beach, Playa Martiánez, is just several hundred metres away. The island's northern airport is 15 miles away on the motorway and the southern airport is 56 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The 350 rooms at the Bonanza are divided into two categories: standard and superior; they are essentially the same room, just different sizes. The carpeted bedrooms have simple dark wood furniture and the bed linen, curtains and matching upholstery are bright and follow the reddy pink colour theme. Amenities include a regular television set, a safe (12? per week), a fridge (free of charge) and telephone, while the spacious bathroom has a bidet, hairdryer, bathtub with shower and personalised toiletries. Depending on where your room is situated in the buildings, you'll have either a sea view or a view on Teide, the volcano.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Like many of the hotels in the north of Tenerife, the Bonanza was built 30 or so years ago and in some respects shows its age. While its condition certainly doesn't betray its age, the décor, whether original or not, is however dated and has probably been kept that way for the older guests that come in the winter. That aside, the hotel is clean, calm and has most things one would need on a break in the island. It is easy to find your way around and getting to your room is quick and easy. There are two pool areas, one of which has a children's pool and a small snack bar whose terrace is not covered. None of the pools are heated in the winter months and there is neither much space around them or good views due to the high buildings alla round. That said, the space does have quite a bit of greenery and there are several levels of solarium space above the swimming pools with a lot more space, as well as ping pong tables. There is actually one other swimming pool, an indoor one which is open all year round, next to which are two saunas. The kids club, two shed-like structures next to the main pool, is 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 hotel has a small fitness room with a few basic machines as well as a basic spa which offers various types of massage, health treatments and beauty care. Some of the other facilities in the hotel include an arcade room, tennis courts, multi sport court and a cards room. Wifi is available in the lobby and at the pool for a charge while there are also coin-operated PCs available to guests without laptop.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    Bonanza has two restaurants and two bars. The main restaurant serves an international buffet 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 which unfortunately doesn't have any special view. The food however is well presented and there is a good choice, especially of adventurous salads, good-looking desserts, grilled meat and fish and wine. If however you fancy a change from the buffet, then there is another option. In a room in which red is very much the theme and where the ceiling beams give a homely atmosphere, guests can enjoy such dishes as beef carpaccio with foie gras, steamed cod, sirloin steak and rice pudding. The Taboro bar, the venue for the evenings' shows, is a dated yet comfortable place with a low bar and suitably low seating at the counter. It is given some character by the original wooden columns and beams that have been left untouched. The other bar is the main pool's snack bar which is open during the pool's opening hours and which also has a separate section for guests staying on an all inclusive basis.

    To know

    The Bonanza actually comprises two hotels, although they operate as a single unit, with the front entrance and reception being located next door at the Canarife Palace. The hotel is also part of the same company that owns the Interpalace just across the road whose guests are able to come and use the spa facilities here. Guests of each hotel can also choose where to watch the evening's entertainment.

      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.

      Lying on the north coast of Tenerife in a quiet neighbourhood of Puerto de la Cruz close to the renowned botanic garden, the Riu Garoe is a lovely, very quiet and well built hotel that will meet the expectations of couples in search of quiet and rest. The quality of services offered should equally ensure a pleasant stay for the visitor.

      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.

      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?

      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.

      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.

      • Location 8.23

      A relatively small hotel in a quiet area of Puerto de la Cruz, the Diamante Suites is a hotel perfect for relaxing away from the bustle and bustle of the main touristic area of the resort. Although not right next to the beach, the hotel has great all round views and a good range of facilities for an establishment of its size. It may be a little rough around the edges in parts, but it has a certain charm that is difficult to put your finger on, so we won't try! Suffice to say that if you're looking for a mid-range hotel as a couple (Diamante will become adult-only from next summer) then have a closer look at this one.
