Atlantic Mirage

The adults-only Atlantic Mirage gets top marks when it comes to style. Design-led interiors meet a swanky pool scene that wouldn’t look out of place in a luxury travel magazine.

The hotel was originally built in the 1970s and has been one of Puerto de la Cruz’s most popular spots ever since. It comes with two restaurants, a luxury spa and a set of rooftop hot tubs.

By day, the sunbed-and-parasol edged pool is the place to be and a snack bar nearby serves cocktails and light bites. In-water loungers and a bevy of hot tubs feature on the rooftop terrace.

Overview of Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la Cruz perfectly blends beach life with days in a bustling city. So, when you choose Puerto de la Cruz for your holiday to Tenerife, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

The balmy climate of Tenerife means Puerto de la Cruz attracts holidaymakers all year round. The resort’s particularly popular with couples because Puerto de la Cruz is much calmer than some of the other resorts in the area, and hotels like the Atlantic Mirage specialise in relaxing breaks.

Things to do in Puerto de la Cruz

The Atlantic Mirage puts you in a great spot for exploring Puerto de la Cruz. The volcanic sand of Playa Martianez is 20 minutes’ walk away and you can work out the route from the panoramic rooftop terrace.

The centre of Puerto de la Cruz is a 15-minute stroll. By day, you can wander around the harbour and the pretty old town. Although it isn’t as lively as some of Tenerife’s other resorts, places still stay open late and many specialise in Canarian entertainment, so you’ll have a good choice for nights out!

With a stay in Puerto de la Cruz, you can lounge on the beach by day and enjoy the buzz of the city in the evening.

Resort Summary

The city offers fantastic shopping and entertainment, while at the beach you will find the black volcanic sands that have become a signature of holidays to Tenerife. Spend a few days unwinding on the popular Playa De Jardin – those seeking a tan can enjoy some downtime on their sun-loungers, while thrill-seekers can experience water sports both on and under the waves.

Playa de Jardin’s tropical surroundings are something special – here is where you’ll find palm trees and waterfalls lining the promenade. If you’re searching for a quieter beach, head to Playa Martianez where you’ll also find the water-park Lago Martianez. It houses a salt-water lake and several swimming pools, framed by sub-tropical gardens, so there’s lots to explore.

If you’re not the lounging type, or you simply need a change of scenery, then you are ideally placed for day trips. Families can enjoy the popular attraction of Lorque Park, which is based in Puerto de la Cruz. Watch the parrot shows, visit the white tiger enclosure and sit back and enjoy the dolphin, sea-lion and orca performance.
