Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 6.5 /10

    To the north of Tenerife, on the peak of a hill on the heights of Puerto de la Cruz in a residential area, less than 2 miles from the town centre. To reach the hotel from the Los Rodeos airport north of Tenerife, located 18.5 miles away, will need a 30-minute drive and 1:30 from the Tenerife Sur airport located some 68 miles away. The hotel is some 25 miles away from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of the Island.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The 207 suites of the Las Aguilas are worthy of a 5* hotel. From the entrance corridor, the decoration is refined with tableaux and countless designs. Spacious, perfectly equipped and sumptuously decorated (with wooden beams on the ceiling), the rooms comprise a lounge area (with davenport, a low table and 25-channel satellite television), a king-size bed, an office, a direct international phone line, a kitchenette (supplement of 2.5 pounds per day), a round wooden table with three chairs, individual airconditioning combined with a ceiling fan and an electronic safe (charged at approximately 1.5 pounds per day plus a 4 pound deposit). The vista from the well designed patio is breathtaking, hugs the ocean and the city of Puerto de la Cruz or the Teide volcano on bright days. The bathroom is fabulous, spacious, immaculate and exquisitely decorated. It carries a hair dryer, hospitality products, non-separated toilets, a bidet, a magnifying mirror and to cap it all, a huge jacuzzi equipped with handset and flexible shower. Equally bear in mind that there is no heating and that it may be a bit cold in winter. Las Aguilas equally boasts 12 studios.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Perched on its eagle's nest (aguilas in Spanish from which the hotel derives its name) on the crest of a hill, the huge red 6-storey building of the Las Aguilas stands out from a distance. The entire panorama hugs the ocean on one side and the Teide volcano on the other side. Two open-air pools lie ready (from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM), one of which is heated surrounded by a lawn and the other unheated but adorned by a cascade housing toilets and offering a panoramic view on Puerto de la Cruz, the ocean and the Teide volcano. The entire decor is surrounded by a 107,600 feet² garden, a lovely snack-bar with red columns, showers, deck chairs and parasols. Beware of the wind that cools the atmosphere and think of taking along a towel, as these are not provided. Children can enjoy a small pool in the midst of a sand box and a giant inflatable castle used to form a trampoline. The obstacle course and a chess game complete the gamut of distraction facilities.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    You can have your meals at the à la carte Sal Gorda restaurant (in the evening only) with its magnificent colonial style decoration (with columns and arches) as well as at the Amaltea buffet restaurant with its show cooking varying Chinese, Spanish and Canarian themes. A patio is available at the end of the restaurant. Breakfast is ready from 7:30 to 10:00 AM, lunch from 1:00 to 2:00 PM and dinner from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. The Barbacoa pool-side snack-bar offers and excellent view while enjoying roast meat in the day. Besides the pool-side bar (open from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM and 3:00 to 5:00 PM) and the lobby bar (from 4:00 PM to midnight), you can enjoy numerous cocktails at the Vulcano showbar (open from 10:00 PM to midnight) with its plasma screens.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    A free shuttle drops clients close to the Martianez shopping centre downtown Puerto de la Cruz less than 2 miles away everyday from Monday to Saturday morning from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM and 4:00 PM to 7:15 PM. The Playa Martianez is just nearby. It does not offer bathing facilities and its equipment is rather restricted. Beware of waves and currents that are often quite strong. Many people prefer to bathe at the Lago Martianez nearby, with its giant sea water pool that encompasses the casino like a lake.

    To know

    Las Aguilas is a brand new hotel built in July 2005 on the peak of a hill overlooking the Orotava Valley. A spa and fitness centre are under construction. It has nothing to do with the club hotels that line the coast and instead displays a very tranquil or even too quiet atmosphere. Fortunately, an obstacle course, giant chess game or a giant inflatable castle for children will provide enough distraction for clients, as there is no beach nearby. Sports men and women can equally choose between playing football, volleyball or basketball on the multisport playground. For those who won't mind taking the shuttle to town, they can get something out of the shopping mall made up of a small supermarket, a souvenir shop, beauty salon and barber's shop.

      Lying close to the sea, the Florida hotel is a bland outfit that may suit the needs of couples seeking leisure rather than excitement or sports.

      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 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.

      • Location 6.25

      Set in a quiet part of town, this is an absolutely charming hotel largely due to its superb grounds and compact set up which ensures a fun yet relaxed atmosphere. A real haven away from the frenzy of the town centre, it is ideal for couples or small families, ideally with children from the age of 6 or 7 who won't necessarily need the attention of an animator for long periods. It would perhaps be unfair to expect the rooms to match up to the external public spaces, however they are clean, comfortable and have lovely views of the gardens. And, with a good restaurant and pleasant staff, the Parque San Antonio gets a big thumbs up from us - highly recommended.

      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.
