Landmar Costa Los Gigantes
The Landmar Costa Los Gigantes has arguably one of the best locations in Tenerife. Pitched on the hills, it offers panoramic views over to the ocean and the Los Gigantes cliffs. And even with its tucked-away location, it’s still only a ten-minute walk to the beach. The resort’s facilities are unparalleled. The lagoon-like pool, high ropes assault course, mini-golf, tennis courts, cinema and bowling alley mean there’s always something to do during the day. And when the evening falls, enjoy sea views at one of the restaurants. The huge candle-lit spa is a big pull – from plunge pools to massages, you can really relax in this indulgent space.
