Amy Adejokun Section editor

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 8.25 /10

    The Luabay is situated up in land in the northern resort of Puerto de la Cruz, in a more or less quiet residential area. It is a few minutes' walk from the indoor market and there is a small shopping street five minutes in the other direction. Both the beach and town centre are about a 10 minute walk away. There is no car park at the hotel, however you will be able to find a parking spot along the surrounding roads. The island's northern airport is 18 miles away while the southern airport is 57 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    Keeping it nice and simple, the Luabay offers only one type of room. Spacious and contemporary, there are some of the nicest rooms in the north. Soft, sober colours are used throughout and the design is clean and net and functional. The room comprises two smartly dressed single beds flanked by bedside tables attached to a padded head board. There is a comfy modern sofa, small storage unit, wardrobe and modern art prints on the wall. Amenities include a flatscreen television, safe (2? per day) and fridge (same price). There is a small balcony in each room, complete with plastic garden furniture, which looks out either toward the ocean or the interior of the island. The bathroom is very spacious and has bidet, bathtub with regular shower, hairdryer and a few toiletries. For extra amenities, think about joining the Splendit programme (see 'To Know').

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Don't worry that the exterior of this hotel is a little unsightly - it wasn't built for Luabay, which explains why the outside is not as cool as the inside. The lobby is a bit on the small side but is extremely welcoming and greets you with soft chill-out music to get you in the right frame of mind for your stay. The reception desk to the left is manned by polite, English-speaking staff that goes to great lengths to meet your needs. In the centre of the hall is a staircase up to the first floor while behind it is a set of lifts which always arrive swiftly. Otherwise there is just a couple of couches and armchairs in which to repose and information points on renting cars, excursions etc. Outside, at the back of the hotel, is the pool area which comprises just one main pool plus another for children. It is a calm space, with stylish loungers and is surrounded by trees and greenery in an attempt to block the view of the encircling buildings. Close by is a small kids playground. The hotel has a small, basic spa centre which offers a few massages, wraps and facial treatments and also has a simple fitness room. Other sporting facilities include a squash court which was due to be redone, ping pong tables and pool tables as well as a games room and giant chess. This latter is right next to the outdoor chill-out area, a sleek new space where you can enjoy a drink or snack while relaxing to ambient music.

    While children are very welcome and will be sure to enjoy the Luabay, they are not the main target audience of the hotel. There is a full entertainment programme for adults including such activities as yoga, shuffleboard and ping pong competitions and bingo. Then, later on in the evening, after the disco, there is a show (magic or flamenco dancing for example, followed by another chance to strut your stuff on the dance floor. During the school holidays however additional activities are put on especially for kids. Other amenities at the hotel include an internet room where you can either bring your laptop or log on to one of the PCs (both options are chargeable), a shop selling supplies and there is also a solarium above the lobby bar. All areas of the hotel which have been renovated since Luabay took over are all quite stylish and contemporary and even those which haven't been are in good condition. Getting to your room is simple and quick and the hotel just seems to tick over quite nicely.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The Luabay has just one buffet restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served. It is one of the rare occasions where everything we tasted was good while the staff too were excellent. There is lots of choice at each mealtime as well as more interesting dishes than you'd find in many other hotels. The restaurant itself, while not the best decorated or designed, is clean and spacious. Much more impressive in our opinion is the lobby bar (actually situated past the lobby at the back of the hotel) which is an enormous space with greenery, stylish and comfortable seating and a flatscreen television. Open all day, it also has a terrace overlooking the swimming pool. If you are by the pool however and fancy a beverage or light snack then head to the pool bar which serves during the opening hours of the pool, although there isn't much seating at the bar itself. There are snacks available in the lobby too between the hours of 4pm and 6pm.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Closely monitored and well maintained, the Playa Jardin is quite large, carpeted with coarse dark sand and flanked by a long foot walk. Equipment include parasols, deck chairs (both at extra cost) and showers. Water sports and games are readily available for children.

    To know

    Luabay is a relatively new brand of hotel launched in 2008 which has service, provided by a young team, at the heart of its culture. There is another Luabay in Los Gigantes (also Tenerife) and in Murcia. Although all of the hotel's rooms are identical, there is a concept known as Splendit Service which offers extras such as early check in, top floor rooms and special amenities in the room.

      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 Puerto Palace is a luxury hotel situated in a very quiet neighbourhood of Puerto de la Cruz. It will be particulary appealing not only to couples in quest of tranquility, but equally to sports lovers with its top-notch fitness centre and squash court.

      The International 3* hotel is a small charming outfit situated on the heights of Puerto de la Cruz. Far from the frenzy of the club hotels, this extremely pleasant outfit distinguishes itself thanks to its tranquility and friendly atmosphere. You don't come here for excitement or sports. Just the right destination for travellers in search of quiet and tranquility.

      • 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 Chimisay is a peaceful little establishment at the heart of the pedestrian city centre of Puerto de La Cruz. It has 60 unpretentious guest rooms and offers good value for money. It doesn't exactly excel when it comes to the number of facilities on offer, but does nevertheless boast a panoramic rooftop swimming pool offering pretty views over the sea, the tower of the church opposite, and Mount Teide, when it deigns to show itself!

      • Location 7.0

      The Puerto de la Cruz is a rather non-descript hotel and to be honest it is difficult to pick out something that really makes it stand out from the rest. Although looking somewhat sad and dated (the last renovation was 6 years ago), it is still in good condition and is clean and comfortable. The rooms are modest (the suites are better), the food average and there is not much in the way of extra facilities. Being situated inland it is some way from the beach and is a little noisy, but does afford some great views of both the sea and the island's interior. We recommend this for couples looking to spend most of their time outside of the hotel complex as a value for money base during their holiday.

      • Location 6.52

      The Turquesa is officially a four-star hotel, however this is far from the truth. While strictly-speaking it may meet the criteria for a property of this standard through its facilities or size, there are many features which are certainly not up to scratch. Yes, the kids might enjoy the services dedicated to them and yes, the rooms are comfortable, but aside from that, there is not much to warrant consideration of this hotel for your stay in Tenerife unless you are on a budget or do not count on spending much time on the premises.

      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 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.

      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.
