Which are the best accommodation options in Tenerife?


If this is your first time in Tenerife, finding accommodation might be very daunting for you. After securing a cost-effective flight for your long-awaited holiday, it's time to find accommodation to suit your budget and expectations.


Budget permitting, the sky's definitely the limit in this regard as there's a huge number of luxury hotels in Tenerife. The variety of boutique and 4-star hotels can also offer high-level services for a more wallet-friendly price. Airbnb is another option that has reached the height of popularity in recent years. Airbnb gives you the chance to rent accommodation in Tenerife in often well-located areas at irrefutably competitive prices.

In terms of accommodation, the most popular places in the south are Costa Adeje, Playa de Las Américas and Los Cristianos. Puerto de la Cruz is also a popular place in the north.

Let's begin!

Let's begin the hunt for the best accommodation in Tenerife. We think the best way to find good accommodation is to use search engine sites like booking.com or expedia.com. These sites let you choose the type of hotel, and if you want an included breakfast or half board. You can also pick the area and the services you'd prefer. Your reservation is usually direct and you can normally cancel your booking up to a few days before your stay.


Another thing to think about when looking for accommodation is what you want to go and see. If you keep this in mind, you can find somewhere that isn't too far from the sites and attractions. For example, if you're looking for good weather and the beach then it's better to look for accommodation in Costa Adeje, Playa de Las Américas and Los Cristianos – ranging from the most expensive to the cheapest respectively. We recommend you follow the link to search through the various luxury hotels and other accommodation options in the area.


Where to look for accommodation in Tenerife

Costa Adeje is one of the best places to spend your holiday. The accommodation options there are also some of the most luxurious on the island. Due to the high demand generated by tourism, the area also has a large concentration of luxury hotels. There's an immense variety of things to do in Costa Adeje and the neighboring Playa de Las Américas. There are water sports, scuba diving and boat trips to go and see the whales – to name but a few. We particularly like Hotel Jardines de Nivaria, Sheraton La Caleta and Vincci Plantación del Sur.


Playa de Las Américas and Los Cristianos are the ideal places if you're looking for sun, beach and affordable prices. Both areas naturally have luxury hotels, but there are fewer than in Costa Adeje. People staying in these two resorts are usually looking for reasonable prices and high-quality services. H10 Big Sur and Regency Country Club are great examples, also offering party and entertainment options for almost all ages. If you're looking for a bit more independence, then we recommend you rent an apartment or house. This option means you can cook to your own tastes and to your own budget. Follow the link to learn about all the accommodation options you can find in Tenerife.


If the beach isn't your main reason for going to Tenerife, then we recommend looking for accommodation in the north. The north obviously has its own beaches, but you'll also find cultural and nature attractions there. Puerto de la Cruz is ideal for the occasional beach day, combined with town visits for some history and culture. There's also the option of going to the Anaga or Teno nature parks or visiting Las Cañadas del Teide National Park. All of these sites, and much more, are all within a stone's throw of each other. Puerto de la Cruz is also a complete tourist destination, with a wide range of shops, restaurants and party venues. Some of the area's accommodation options are Hotel Botánico and Oriental Garden Spa or Sol Tenerife Playa.


However, if you'd prefer a place away from the tourist vibe, then Isla Baja is a great option. We can recommend Garachico and Buenavista del Norte in particular. There are very elegant choices like Hotel San Roque or Hotel Meliá Hacienda del Marqués. There are also accommodation options in the middle of nature, like Albergue de Bolico. The latter gives you the chance to take a stroll and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of Teno Nature Park. If you stay in this area, we recommend you choose from the many rural accommodation options. Each of these has their own particular charm and might help to make your Tenerife holiday experience more complete.

Book in advance, otherwise you can see yourself with the sad surprise of not being able to stay in the place you want at the price you had thought.


Los Gigantes and Playa de la Arena are a few kilometres out of the area and closer to the island's southern region. These areas have become a hotspot in recent years for tourists looking to enjoy the beach and good southern weather. This can all be enjoyed whilst staying close to the tourist and party hotspots, without the hustle and bustle. Royal Sun Resort has some incredible and beautiful views and is the perfect place to stay in.
