Guesthouses and B&Bs on Tenerife
The largest of all the Canary Islands, Tenerife has wonderful white beaches, great water-sports and is very family-friendly. But it’s not all about package-holiday hotels. It is possible to find places to stay that offer authentic Canarian character whether in the architecture, furnishings and food or in the warmth of the welcome. Use our guide to the best guesthouses and B&Bs on Tenerife to plan your low-key getaway. Just don't expect our choices to be near the big bustling resorts. Our favourite B&Bs and guesthouses tend to be more off-the-beaten-track affairs!
More often than not these guesthouses and B&Bs are family-run, sometimes on a working farm or vineyard, sometimes in a traditional village house. Usually they offer a peaceful retreat; they definitely offer an individual style and charm. And almost always they offer great value for money. We have selected the best guesthouses and B&Bs on Tenerife for you to choose from.
