City breaks on Tenerife are gaining in popularity. Shopping, sightseeing and a sneaky afternoon on the beach are all within four and a half hour, budget friendly, flying distance and turn a city break into a tropical getaway.
The towering cliffs that give Los Gigantes its name are one of the most iconic sights in Tenerife, now after eight years absence guests can enjoy the finest views of them from the Royal Sun Resort high above the village.
Chic, clean, comfortable and perfectly placed for a weekend in the city to go shopping, enjoy Carnaval or take in the city sights. For me, the NH has everything you need from a city centre hotel – location, comfort, wifi, good service and value for money.
Where do you go if you want to find some authentic Tinerfeño character where the styles, building materials and spirit of colonialism on which Tenerife was founded are very much in evidence and you can still find a trouser press in your room?
Hotel buffets can sometimes trigger memories of school dinners and a lot of queueing for mass produced food that is more functional than enjoyable. If you’re a foodie, they can often be a bit of a let down; at best unadventurous and bland, at worst downright unpleasant. However, it doesn’t need to be like that.
It took three years of stripping back layers of neglect before Hotel San Agustín was able to show its old treasures in the heart of Icod de los Vinos.
A grand hotel whose Oriental good looks sit spectacularly well amongst the palm trees of the north of Tenerife and whose five stars stem from excellent service and attention to detail.
A spotlessly clean, vibrant, comfortable and facilities-rich hotel which offers excellent value for money and ticks all the boxes for a great family holiday. As with all GF Hotels in my experience, the staff are exceptional.
Staying there for a weekend just five months after it had opened, I was blown away by the simple elegance of the hotel and by the beauty and tranquillity of the area where hiking trails lead through forests and around nature reserve pools.
A stylish, friendly hotel in a spectacular location with first class food and apartment-sized rooms – one of Puerto’s best hotels. You’ll go a long way to find better value for money.
