Royal Sun Suites
Cool, calm and contemporary is the order of the day at the Royal Sun Suites. This stylish cliff-top hotel offers blissful ocean views from the sun terraces, while rooms also enjoy views of the blue waters beyond. Thanks to classy decor throughout the rooms and dining areas, the looks are great on the inside of this hotel too. For the kids, there are funky play areas to hang out in and a hotel-run kids’ club. Meanwhile, evening entertainment comes courtesy of professional performers such as magicians and dancers. The hotel enjoys sweeping views down to Los Gigantes village and harbour – which you’ll get to in about 15 minutes on foot.
Overview of Los Gigantes
The full name of Los Gigantes is Acantilados de los Gigantes, which means ‘the cliffs of the giants’. As soon as you land here, you’ll see exactly why, as you’ll be greeted by 550-metre high cliffs that run for 10 kilometres across the coast.
It was these mysterious cliffs that first drew holidaymakers here, with hotels like the Royal Sun Suites making the most of the gorgeous views out to sea.
Although it’s now popular with tourists looking for holidays to Tenerife, it’s maintained its traditional charm and Spanish feel. Plus, because of the tranquillity of the location, there’s an air of exclusivity about a stay in the rugged clifftops.
Things to do in Los Gigantes
With a stay at the Royal Sun Suites, you overlook the centre of Los Gigantes, which is only 1.5 kilometres away. Here, yachts float in the luxurious marina. A commercial centre is also based just north of the marina, where you’ll find everything from souvenirs to fashion. In the evening, the seafront restaurants and bars offer sunset views before the more lively cabaret clubs and nightclubs open their doors.
The beach is also only 1.7 kilometres away. Thanks to the cliffs, the black-sand beach of Los Guios benefits from its own microclimate that means you’ll be treated to the best beach weather in the Canary Islands.
In Los Gigantes, the dark cliffs and black sands contrast beautifully with the whitewashed buildings and the posh yachts that bob in the marina. Calming and relaxed, it’s a beautiful and unique way to experience Tenerife.
