Where to stay in Tenerife – Tenerife holiday guide


In this video I want to give you a complete
look and comparison of all the different holiday destinations in Tenerife so you can pick the
right one for YOUR holiday in Tenerife. Let’s start of close to the airport and
move around the island from here. The first holiday destination close to the
airport is the Golf del Sur area. There are a few hotels here and a large shopping,
bars and restaurants center. This area is very popular with golfers but
other holiday makers can be found here as well. In general it’s pretty cheap here compared
to other holiday resorts in Tenerife. This area has a beach, but it’s not really
the nicest one. Further down you will find the Costa del Silencio
with next to it las Galletas. The Costa del Silencio is very popular with
Belgian tourists and Dutch and French as well. The area has a nice place to swim near the
costa Amarilla. The Costa del Silencio in Tenerife has seen
better days but recently has started improving and investing again. An added bonus is the Las Galletas area next
door, it feels very Spanish and prices also here are pretty friendly. Los Cristianos is one of the more popular
resorts in Tenerife. It still has a pretty Spanish and authentic
feel but a nice big white sandy beach and restaurants catering to all nationalities. This resort is bit more busy than the Costa
del Silencio and Golf del Sur we have seen previously. In the last few years they started offering
a lot of good adults only hotels in this area. Playa de las Americas is know for party and
nightlife and yes in the Veronicas area they have a lot of it. Near this area in the Playa de las Americas
you find the Troya beaches, black sand beaches. On the other side of Playa de las Americas
you have a white sand beach and that area is less party and more upscale dining and
shopping. The Costa Adeje area is the more upscale area
here in the South of Tenerife, and maybe even over the whole island of Tenerife Here you
find some of the nicest beaches on the island like the Playa del Duque. Because of this and the many 5 star hotels
and upscale shopping centers you find here, this is also one of the more pricey destinations
in Tenerife. A few kilometers away but technically still
part of the Costa Adeje, is the Playa Paraiso. There are a few nice 4 and 5 star hotels here
like the new Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife. The Playa Paraiso is rather small and quiet,
with not much nightlife. Next door you will find the Callao Salvaje,
this is a cheaper holiday destination with only a few hotels mostly 2 and 3 stars. Here you will find a pretty nice beach as
well. You can walk in between the Playa Paraiso
and Callao Salvaje in about 15 minutes. Next is the Puerto Santiago and Los Gigantes
area. There is everything you can want here from
bars, to restaurants, to shops and nightlife. This area is lesser known but very nice. Just keep in mind it is pretty hilly and therefore
might be less interesting for holiday makers with babies or disabilities. You can find a few very nice family hotels
here as well as a harbor and a few different, smaller beaches. In the North you will find one of my favourite
destinations in Tenerife, Puerto de la Cruz. Why? Well it’s a real town with hotels added
in, not just hotels next to a beach like other places on Tenerife. Also because it is in the North, its more
lush and green here because of the microclimate. This also means there is a bit more rain here
then on other places on the island, so keep that in mind. In Puerto de la Cruz you will also find 2
great beaches. This resort is very popular with a older generation
looking for a relaxed destination and randomly enough also Finish people. Not all Scandinavians, just Finish people. Santa Cruz is the capital of Tenerife and
strangely enough, even tho it is the capital… one of the cheapest places on Tenerife. To make a quick comparision… a good mojito
here will cost you about 3 to 4 euro, an average ok mojito in the South, will cost you about
7 to 8 euro. You will also find a few hotels here and the
Playa de las Teresitas, but this is about 8 km outside of the city. I would advice Santa Cruz to stay for just
a few days, not a full weeks holiday. El Medano is a small and authentic Spanish
holiday resort with at the moment I am making this video, mostly budget hotels with not
the best ratings. It is very popular with surfers and people
visiting it for just one or 2 days. Many pro surfers also come to practice here. The whole resort has a bohemian and hipster
feel. If you want to find all my videos covering
Tenerife even more easy, then don’t forget to subscribe. Hope this video helped you and that you will
have a great holiday in Tenerife because of it!
