    Location 8.98 /10

    Facing the sea in downtown Puerto de la Cruz and close to the Lago Martianez municipal aquatic complex. To reach the hotel from the Los Rodeos airport north of Tenerife, located 12.5 miles away, will need a 30-minute drive and 1:30 from the Tenerife Sur airport located some 62 miles away. The hotel is some 25 miles away from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of the Island.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    Laid out in its colonial style, the rooms offer a simple and understated comfort. More than half of the rooms offer a breathtaking view of the sea and footwalk, while the others open up to the surrounding buildings or a small interior compound. Equipment include a direct telephone line, a safe (not free of charge), satellite television, a discreet and understated bathroom with bathtub. On the flip side, there is neither airconditioning nor fan.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The San Telmo is made up of a grand 5-storey tower comprising 91 rooms. The original decoration blends Castilian and marine styles with cabin windows, frames with wooden colonnades, cast iron lighting... Modest and discreet, the only source of distraction this outfit offers is a small airconditioned pool on the roof deck surrounded by deck chairs and parasols. However, it offers a lovely view of the sea and surroundings.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Decorated in a modest Canarian style and made up of wooden furniture and flowery fabrics, the small restaurant of the hotel offers breakfast and dinner in the form of buffets. The cuisine is mainly internationally inspired and offers both Spanish and Canarian specialties on a regular basis.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The beach opposite the hotel is of little interest. It is better to go to Playa Jardin, the most lovely city less than 1 mile away. To get there, follow a marine footwalk and cross a couple of streets. The beach is closely watched, well kept in spite of its average size, and carpeted with coarse black sand. Equipment include parasols, deck chairs and showers. Water sports and games are readily available for children.

    To know

    Built in 1966 along the marine footwalk, the San Telmo hotel houses several user-friendly shops, bars and restaurants. Its entrance nestled in a reinforcement block should not blight the charm of this small, modest and friendly outfit. By the seaside, some 985 feet away, the Lago Martianez municipal aquatic complex (not free of charge) displays vast swimming pools, surrounded by gardens, deck chairs and parasols.

      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.

      • 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 6.5

      A quiet, medium-sized hotel with a great location, the Las Vegas is a reasonable choice for couples looking for good value and who only require basic services. The rooms are of a good standard, the food is likewise decent without being ground-breaking and the hotel's public spaces are comfortable, if not a little dated and impersonal at times. While children are very welcome at the hotel, there is no dedicated miniclub or programme for kids and so they may have more fun elsewhere. For the beach though and nightlife, you couldn't get much closer.

      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!

      This hotel is a charming little place that stands out among the large charmless resorts dominating the Tenerife landscapes. Located in the pedestrian centre of Puerto de La Cruz, the Marquesa occupies a historic building which was once the former residence of a Marquis, as its name indicates. This hotel doesn't exactly excel when it comes to the number of facilities on offer, but does nevertheless boast a panoramic rooftop swimming pool with a whirlpool offering pretty views over the sea, the tower of the church opposite, and Mount Teide, when it deigns to show itself!

      • 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 Tenerife Playa is a delightful hotel, perfect for couples looking for a bit of class and quality at a reasonable price. A relaxed atmosphere reins over the hotel, in large part due to the absence of children, although of course they are very welcome. While the rooms and services of the hotel are of a high standard, it has two main trump cards: its restaurant and its location. This is definitely one to consider if you're looking to come to the north of the island.

      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.

      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.
