Tenerife

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, the landscape is dominated by Mount Teide, the 3rd tallest volcano in the world, which at 3,718m is also the highest point in Spain.

Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife Pool

Hard Rock Hotel, Tenerife

Let’s cut to the chase here. The service at the Hard Rock Hotel in Tenerife is the best I have ever experienced in Europe. We’ll come back to that later, but if great service floats your boat, then you should book a stay. We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and because we’d previously enjoyed a stay at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, although the Tenerife version is a 5 star versus 4 stars for it’s Vegas cousin.…

Tenerife Trip Planning

So we’re all organised for our trip to Tenerife. As always, the aim is to try a few excellent hotels and to discover what makes the island “tick.” That means spending some time travelling to all parts of the island, and seeing both the tourist hot spots, and the hidden gems we always seem to discover on our travels. We’re flying Binter again on one of their little island hoppers – did you know all passengers get a 20KG luggage…

Iberostar Grand Hotel Mencey, Santa Cruz

We flew into Tenerife North Airport from Lanzarote, and wanted a base in the capital for a short stay. We selected the 5 star Iberostar Grand Hotel Mencey because it’s probably the best known hotel on the island, having been there since the 1950’s and only recently taken over by the Iberostar group. First Impressions The hotel is reasonably easy to find – it’s just off the Ramblas, which are a kind of central ring round in the city. The…

Hotel Botanico And Oriental Spa Garden, Puerto de la Cruz

We travelled to The Botanico from South Tenerife, and drove all through the incredible Teide region to get there. The hotel is located in Puerto de la Cruz, a little way up the hill from the main beaches, but close enough to town. We had read that the hotel is one of the “leading hotels of the world” group, so we had high expectations. First Impressions You drive up a tree lined avenue to the hotel entrance, and staff are…

Playa de Las Americas, Tenerife

We didn’t spot any obvious sign that we’d left the holiday resort of Los Cristianos and entered Playa de Las Américas at the far end of Playas de Las Vistas. We wandered through the shopping centres of C.C. Nuevo Mar and C.C. Oasis treating ourselves to an ice cream, before continuing our walk along the Paseo Marítimo in the direction of Costa Adeje. We looked back one more time over Playa de Las Vistas towards Los Cristianos before rounding the…
