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.

    Location 6.5 /10

    The Perla is located in a quiet residential area on a steep street in the northern resort of Puerto de la Cruz. The immediate vicinity of the hotel holds little of touristic interest. The town centre is a fair distance away so you'll probably want to take a taxi or your hire car (or the complimentary shuttle bus service), while the closest beach, Playa de Martiánez, is equally as far. The hotel doesn't have a car park, however you are likely to be able to find a spot in the street just outside. The island's northern airport is 16 miles away and the southern one is 56 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    Keeping things simple, there is just one type of room at the Perla, although you can choose between an island view and a garden view. The surface area of the rooms is quite generous and there is lots of space to move around in and make yourself feel at home. The furniture, which comprises a desk, beside tables and a small sofa bed, is basic but functional and smart. A large bunch of flowers helps to brighten the space up while other amenities include tea and coffee facilities, a safe (15? per week, 12? deposit), telephone and fridge. There is a small balcony with plastic garden furniture and the pokey bathroom has bidet, bathtub with shower, bathrobes and basic toiletries. There is both air conditioning and a ceiling fan in the room.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    From the exterior the Perla appears to be an apartment block, however its entrance is more like that of a quaint hotel, framed by a timber structure. The cave-like lobby is fairly small but welcoming, if not a little sad, and has a seating area comprised of some 70s-looking sofas and armchairs. As well as a warm welcome from behind the marble front desk, you'll also find here a coin-operated PC for surfing the internet (there is also complimentary wifi available here and at the bar). Outside is the main pool, kids pool and jacuzzi, which have the option of being covered by a retractable roof. Although there are good views to be had from the pool area, there is not quite enough room around the pool itself to place loungers and parasols, so these are found just above at the solarium where there is much more space and more views of the sea. Also outside is a large, partly-covered terrace which can be used for taking a drink or playing cards at any hour of the day. Perhaps the selling point of the hotel though is the lovely gardens with at one end a small gazebo, which is a lovely place for a little stroll or relaxing during the day and from which there is a footbridge leading to the botanical gardens and shopping centre. The hotel doesn't have a wellness centre or fitness room, however there is a sauna available for 10? per hour, with space for up to four people. There is also a television room with a huge flatscreen television and just 300m from the hotel is a tennis court. The hotel is in a good general condition, is clean and access to the rooms is easy and quick.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The hotel has just one small buffet restaurant which, like the lobby, reminds a little of a cave. The décor is a little drab, but the tables are smartly laid and the place is clean and light. A couple of negative points: first, there is no outdoor terrace on which to enjoy your meals and second is that even with the air conditioning on, it remains quite warm in the room. The selection of dishes at both lunch and dinner isn't huge, but the quality of the food is good and the service is friendly and efficient. The hotel's bar, which again is slightly troglodyte in style, is where the evening's live music takes place and where there is a DJ several times a week. A huge flatscreen television allows guests to watch sporting events.

    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 Perla, like many a hotel in Puerto de la Cruz, looks dated and you may think that it hasn't been renovated in years (since it was built, in fact!). It is true that the furniture and décor may not be ultra-modern, but the hotel is well-maintained and very clean and you should not let its appearance put you off considering this hotel.

      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.

      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.

      • Location 8.85

      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 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.

      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.

      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.
