Luxury hotels on Tenerife
Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, may be well-known for its white beaches, water-sports and family-friendly activities. But it’s not all about non-stop fun and budget package-holidays. The island also attracts people who want places to stay that offer tranquillity and heavenly views, privacy and romance, excellent service and gourmet food, or plenty of on-site activities such as a spa or golf course. In some cases, they may want all of these things! We have scoured the island to pick out the best luxury hotels on Tenerife.
Hotel Botanico, for example, in Puerto de la Cruz, has penthouse suites and rooms with hot tubs; the adults-only Hacienda del Conde has both a spa and golf course as well as a choice of dining options; while romantics should take a look at the Moorish-style, beachfront Grand Hotel el Mirador.
But don't forget that if you want to book one of our recommended luxury hotels on Tenerife, you have to plan well ahead. These properties are popular year round, but especially during the peak summer months amd holiday periods.
