El Tope Hotel

The cliffside El Tope Hotel provides you with great views of Mount Teide and the sea. The hotel comes with a circular pool ringed by loungers. There’s also a sun terrace just back from the water, while a nearby pool bar takes care of drinks and snacks.

The restaurant makes the most of the views out to sea and over the city. It’s a buffet set-up that offers a range of meat, fish, pasta and salad dishes in the evening. For breakfast, there are continental and cooked options.

After dinner, the fun doesn’t stop. Expect dancers, singers and pianists in the bar and by the pool.

Overview of Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la Cruz is incredibly popular with couples who want to relax, spend time together and enjoy a romantic trip on the coast. An increasingly popular resort with people looking for holidays to Tenerife, Puerto de la Cruz combines sunshine-soaked shores by day with the buzz of the city in the evening.

Although it’s surrounded by party destinations, life is a little slower in Puerto de la Cruz. Known for its volcanic-sand beaches, a saltwater pool complex and an old harbour, everything here’s within walking distance for people who like to get out and explore.

Things to do in Puerto de la Cruz

At the El Tope Hotel, the centre of Puerto de la Cruz is only 500 metres away. Packed with bars and restaurants, this is a great place to head on an afternoon stroll.

Along the front you’ll find a number of restaurants that look out over the black-sand beaches. If you travel slightly further round the front, you’ll reach Lago Martianez. As you wander down here, look out for the monuments and statues dotted around the city.

Away from the city centre, the amazing volcanic scenery and incredible views of Mount Teide are close by. As Spain’s highest peak, from here you’ll get the finest views in Tenerife.

In Puerto de la Cruz, city living and calming sands melt together to provide a destination that offers the best of both worlds. For this reason, no two days during a stay at the El Tope Hotel are ever the same.

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.
