Where To Stay in Tenerife in 2022 – The Ultimate Guide

Where To Stay in Tenerife in 2022 – The Ultimate Guide

An accommodation guide to Tenerife including luxury resorts, hotels for trekking, beach holidays and holiday rentals in Tenerife

I keep preaching: Tenerife is much more than holiday packages. Unfortunately, most people have a kind of unflattering image of Tenerife: cheap beach & sun holidays, tipsy, young folks from the UK, concrete mass constructions, and all-you-can-drink sangria parties.

But Tenerife is far more than this! By limiting this little volcanic paradise to the aspects of mass tourism, you’ll miss one of Europe’s most promising destinations when it comes to natural landscapes and hiking trails.

After living in Tenerife island for several months, I want to show you the best places to stay in Tenerife according to the expectations of your holidays.

What to know about accommodation in Tenerife

As a former local, I frequently get asked what the best places are to stay in Tenerife. I’d say that it largely depends on what kind of holiday person you are, what you’re planning to do during your trip to Tenerife, and, of course, on your budget.

In order to give those queries a detailed answer and share with you the best places in Tenerife, I decided to write this in-depth guide on where to stay in Tenerife. Accommodation places are categorized location-wise and budget-wise.

So, before you head to Tenerife, first decide if you want quiet resorts in Tenerife, party holidays, quieter locations, amazing hiking trails, beautiful nature, city life, remote places, the best beaches of Tenerife or just a short stay.

The opinions of this post are based upon my professional experience in the Spanish tourism sector and upon my stay in Tenerife during which I visited several hotels and some beautiful beach resorts in Tenerife.

In total, I traveled 3 times to Tenerife, and all together, I stayed on the island for 5 months and had the chance to discover some nice places in Tenerife.

1. Los Cristianos

Four the youngsters between us; where to go in Tenerife if you like to indulge in the local nightlife? Los Cristianos with the adjacent Playa de las Américas area is close to the South Tenerife airport, and one of the two party centers on Tenerife island. The perfect place to party all night long!

There are quite a few ugly concrete buildings, but the party scene is unbeatable. The most renowned party locations are the Hard Rock Café and the Papagayo Beach Club.

There are also quite a few good beaches for water sports but also for families like Playa de las Vistas, Playa de Los Cristianos and El Camisón. Los Cristianos is also a popular spot for paragliding.

At Los Cristianos you can get all kinds of international food and you are very close to the harbor where ferries connect Tenerife to the other Canarian islands like La Gomera, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria.

I especially liked the cute little surfer shops on the beachside of Playa de la Américas and the exotic tapas at El Horno De Neptuno

2. Costa Adeje

Costa Adeje is the party hot spot of Tenerife. At first glance, Costa Adeje might seem a bit unorganized since the construction of hotels and holiday houses happened quite unplanned during the 60’s and 70’s. Costa Adeje has some of the most popular resorts on the island.

You’ll quickly get used to this accumulation of tourist shops, international restaurants, and huge clubs. Costa Adeje offers ample options for all age of party-goers.

Costa Adeje is not my favorite place to stay since it can get quite overwhelming and is not really a resort town. However, I loved to visit my friends there, hang out on Fañabé beach and enjoy the sunset with a strawberry mojito at the Le Club.

A huge convenience of Costa Adeje is its proximity to the South Tenerife airport and to the most spectacular water attraction in Europe: the legendary Siam Park, definitely the best place in Tenerife for families!

Where To Stay in Tenerife for Honeymoon or Luxury Holidays

1. Alcalá

Alcalá is a former fishermen town that has several lovely beaches. It has delicious restaurants specializing in fish and seafood. Alcalá de also has one of the few sailing schools in Tenerife where you can get private lessons.

Located at a 30 min. drive from the South Tenerife airport, you’ll definitely avoid the party animals of Costa Adeje.

But the main reason for staying in Alcalá is that it hosts one of the top hotels in Tenerife, which in itself is worth choosing Alcalá for your stay. 

On top, you’ll enjoy the finest cuisine with local ingredients like at Melvin by Martin Berasategui, the best place to go in Tenerife if you want to indulge in local food.

Here, you can find two of the best Tenerife resorts for couples:

2. Playa Abama

The other dream place for your honeymoon or luxury stay on Tenerife is Playa Abama at San Juan municipality. It’s located outside the town so that you’ll need a car or ask for the hotel’s transfer service.

The Playa Abama area is home to some of the best Tenerife resorts for couples:

  • The Ritz-Carlton, Abama ***** is the place to stay in Tenerife. Without any doubt, it is one of the best Tenerife Resorts. The complex overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and has stunning views on La Gomera. Its architecture is inspired by the Tuareg and the hotel is surrounded by a lush tropical park. Counting 7 outdoor pools, a tennis court and a huge golf course, you won’t want to leave the resort. – Check rates here

A very romantic experience on Tenerife is the Teide by Night: Romantic Sunset & Stargazing Tour. Located in the national park, it has some of the best star-gazing conditions in the world due to its low light pollution.

Where To Stay in Tenerife for Quiet Beach Holidays

1. Puerto de Santiago

Puerto de Santiago is my favorite place to stay when it comes to staying in Tenerife and for people looking for quiet beach vacations in Tenerife.

You’re wondering what’s the quietest part of Tenerife? Puerto Santiago is definitely a great option!

It’s quite remote because a bit far away from the South Tenerife Airport, but this cute little fishermen village knew how to preserve its very authentic character. 

Narrow streets, cafeterias with local Canarian people, delicious fruit shops, and clean and mostly quiet beaches. All this and much more is the fishing village of Puerto Santiago.

I particularly like this area for its top restaurants like The Fishermans Inn or La Pergola and, of course, because of its breathtaking views on La Gomera

On top, you’ll enjoy the finest cuisine with local ingredients like at Melvin by Martin Berasategui in Guia de Isora, the best to stay in Tenerife if you want to taste some exquisite local cuisine.

The area near Los Gigantes is also a coveted place for holiday apartments and guest houses. It’s thus a grat place in case you are wondering where to stay in Tenerife in winter.

2. Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes is the neighboring village of Puerto Santiago. It’s the last village on the South coast and thus the furthest from the South Tenerife airport. 

This former fishermen’s village has turned into a little tourist hot spot with live music bars, a few holidays resorts, and some lovely artisan shops. But tourism still hasn’t spoiled this village.

When you are sitting on a terrasse on the main plaza, you’ll feel like in a Canarian village where time never has passed.

You’ll also enjoy local cuisine at very affordable prices like at the Bar Restaurante Bodega Chinyero in Santiago del Teide.

The views to the highest canyon of Europe Los Acantilados de Los Gigantes are breath-taking and the town has good connections to Masca, the most popular village for hikes on Tenerife.

The marina of Los Gigantes is located at a short walk from the city center. You can arrange loads of fun activities and excursions such as catamaran cruises, whale watching tours and jet ski safaris. This makes Los Gigantes particularly popular among families traveling with kids.

Unfortunately, Los Gigantes has only one beach which is right next to the marina.

Where To Stay in Tenerife for Hiking Holidays

Yes, you can go hiking in Tenerife!

Many people are surprised when they get to know that Tenerife is not all about beach & sun, but has an extensive trekking trail network as well. The northern part is particularly suited due to its milder temperatures. On top, a refreshing wind is constantly blowing.

The north of Tenerife, also called the Anaga Rural Park, has a breath-taking mountain landscape and deep rutted valleys with lovely views of the Atlantic Ocean. Anaga also hosts some of the most remote and picturesque beaches on the entire Tenerife.

You shouldn’t miss Benijo Beach or the freshest seafood on Playa de Santiago.

The most famous hiking trails of Tenerife are the Masca and the Barranco del Infierno.

1. San Cristóbal de La Laguna

Located at a 15-min drive from the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife, San Cristóbal de La Laguna is the main town of the Anaga Rural Park. With its narrow streets, colorful house fronts and impressive history, San Cristóbal de La Laguna is a popular destination for excursions and hobby photographers.

Should you consider a trekking holiday in Tenerife, then San Cristóbal de La Laguna is the best place to stay since it is very close to most trekking departure points.

On top, you’ll get some student vibes, since San Cristóbal de La Laguna holds Tenerife’s only university.

2. La Orotava

La Orotava is one of my favorite towns in Tenerife. 

This cute colorful town is known all over the Canarian archipelago for its huge flower carpets for Corpus Christi Day which are made of the blossoms of thousands of bright flowers.  

But also throughout the year, La Orotava is a popular destination for excursions due to its scenic views on the volcano Mount Teide and its photogenic church dome.

La Orotava is a good option to stay during your trekking holidays on Tenerife since it’s quite close to the legendary Masca Canyon Trail and all the trekking trails around Mount Teide. But there are much more trekking trails in its surroundings. 

Mount Teide itself offers almost infinite leisure options from romantic stargazing to jeep-safaris or a cable car ride, and is, therefore, the best place in Tenerife if you want to discover some wild nature.

On top, you’ll have a wide range of great dining options like the Restaurante La Vina which uses only local products in its traditional recipes.

Where To Stay in Tenerife For City Life

1. Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife is literally the only “city” on the entire island. Here, you can find shops of every international brand, large shopping malls, cultural life, and of course the typical Spanish lifestyle in its streets and bars.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is famous for its legendary Carnival festivities in February. They are the most important ones in the world after Rio de Janeiro.

During one week, the entire capital goes absolutely crazy! You’ll find a party in the streets, Latin-inspired music groups at every corner and carnival queen contests all day and night long.

Besides the Carnival, Santa Cruz De Tenerife  is also well worth a visit when you are spending your holidays in Tenerife. It has several lush parks, stunning architecture and narrow colorful streets that are filled with testimonials of its colonial history.

2. Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la Cruz is the second largest town of Tenerife. Once it was the first and only tourist hub on Tenerife. Now, Puerto de la Cruz is particularly popular among German and UK tourists.

The city is geared towards tourism and the famous Loro Park makes Puerto de la Cruz a popular destination for family travelers. – Book here your skip-the-line tickets for Loro Parque

Puerto de la Cruz isn’t my absolute favorite on the island. There are just too much concrete and German menus. But I love its Botanical Garden which hosts the first plants brought over from the “New Continent”.

Puerto de la Cruz is also very close to pretty, non-touristy beaches in Tenerife.

Where to Stay in Tenerife for Family Holidays

Are you looking for the best area to stay in Tenerife with kids? In my opinion, this really depends on the goals of your holidays but also on the age of your kids.

If you are traveling with youngsters, I would recommend staying near Costa Adeje because of the area’s vast entertainment program which really makes it the best place in Tenerife for families.

And Siam Park is without any doubt one a highlight of any Tenerife holiday with youngsters and the best place to stay in Tenerife with children.

If you are traveling to Tenerife with very young kids or even toddlers, I recommend having a look at Los Gigantes area. It’s home to some of the best family hotels in Tenerife.

Where to Stay in Tenerife for Wellness Hotels and Spa Resorts

Sometimes, all you want to do during your holiday is getting pampered. Or, is there anything better than coming back to your resort from a long day tour, knowing that a massage is awaiting you?

In recent years, plenty of wellness and spa resorts in Tenerife have opened their doors. Whereas you can find some, small independent spas in the streets of Adeje or Playa Las Americas, the best spas in Tenerife can be found within hotels and resorts.

When looking for the best wellness resort in Tenerife, I would first decide whether to go off-beach or on the coast. The interior of Tenerife is also gorgeous and just perfect to get away from the crowds. 

The selected beach wellness resorts are set in a remote, extremely quiet environment. You may also want to have a look at these all-inclusive adults-only hotels.

Where To Stay In Tenerife as Digital Nomad

So, what is Tenerife like for the digital nomads? The Canary Islands are on the way to becoming a very popular destination among digital nomads (people being able to work location independent).

Most islands, especially Gran Canaria and Tenerife have all the facilities and services that digital nomads are looking for: a beautiful natural setting, security, a vibrant international scene, and, of course, an excellent internet connection.

The big advantage of Tenerife though is the relatively low costs. The food is cheap but fresh and during the low season, the apartments are still cheap as well.

Canarian towns offer cultural events and shopping malls but are still small enough to cycle around. Most also have direct access to a beach. Read here the 10 reasons why digital nomads should visit Gran Canaria.

Several co-working spaces opened up in the last years in Tenerife like Coworking in the Sun in Puerto de la Cruz or Tenerife Coworking in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The recommended locations have been selected according to the following criteria:

a) Excellent Internet connection

b) Cost-friendliness

c) Natural setting

d) Proximity to urban services

Short FAQ about Best Places to stay in Tenerife

Should I stay in the north or south of Tenerife?

Beach, sun, and parties can be found in the Southern part of the island, whereas stunning nature, mountains, lower temperatures, and adventurous hiking trails are in the north of the island. 

Both areas are separated by Spain’s highest mountain, the volcano Mount Teide.

What’s the Best Time to Visit Tenerife?

traditional costume of tenerife

You may wonder what is the best time to visit Tenerife? Well, it’s one of the few European destinations that has good weather all year round and offers fun activities throughout the year.

I have visited Tenerife during the winter, summer and autumn months.
During the winter, temperatures are mild (around 20°C). The sea might be cold at that time of the year but even then, I saw several swimmers.

The best time for hiking holidays is from October to March when the temperatures are mild and nature is blossoming. Don’t miss out on Tenerife during the epic Carnival festivities in February!

During the summer months, from May to September, temperatures can get really hot. The good thing about Tenerife is that there’s always a slight refreshing wind blowing. In case you want to enjoy an uninterrupted party and beach time, visit from June to September.

In autumn, the temperatures remain quite high (20-26 °C).

What is a must-do in Tenerife?

Fresh fried spicy seafood plate mixed diablitos style served in local restaurant in Los Gigantes on tropical island Tenerife, Canary in Spain. Spanish food specialities.

In one sentence, Tenerife has got it all: an extensive network of hiking trails such as Barranco del Infierno, high-quality food, outstanding wines, colorful fiestas, luxury resorts, indigenous traditions, sun and amazing beaches, and, of course, warm-hearted and cheerful people.

Hi there! Thanks for the amazing article. Lots of usual information.

I'm thinking about going to Tenerife for just under 4 weeks from Mid November to use up all my holidays and to get some winter sun and chillout. I will be travelling on my own and was thinking about renting an AirBnB somewhere....and the big question for me is; where exactly to rent?

There's a possibility that a friend or two may join me at some point, but I'm planning to be on my own for the most part.

I am in my 40s but very sporty, fit, active etc....so looking to do lots of trekking and long walks along the coastline, while listening to podcasts and reading a lot. I may even take some surf lessons if I am able a few times a week. However, I don't want to be overly isolated but I don't want to be right in the centre of a big town either. I guess I'm looking for a place with the right balance.

I want to have to supermarkets, restaurants, bars etc....but I also want to be near the Mountains with reasonably quick access to the sea, to be able to go for morning walks at sunrise.

I speak fluent Spanish which helps, but I have no idea where would be the best place to base myself.

With your experience, where would you go if you wanted a good balance of everything?

Thanks again
