Accommodation in Tenerife
Tenerife offers a multitude of choices for vacations, making it difficult for most of us to decide. Hotels in Tenerife come in various standards and cater to specific groups of people. Families, couples, older individuals, and those in need of relaxation, such as with spa facilities. They must meet our requirements while being worth their price. It’s worth starting by choosing a location based on the weather. Few people know that there is a significant difference between the north and the south, which you can read more about in our article on the weather in Tenerife.
Next, we choose a more specific location, depending on whether you prefer touristy towns or quiet, secluded places. Or perhaps you want to be as close as possible to the attractions that interest you? We invite you to delve deeper into our article about the towns in Tenerife. Once we have chosen a specific place on the island, the question of accommodation type arises. What options do we have, and how do they differ?
Apartment, Villa, or Hotel?
Apartment in Tenerife
Option for those who prefer to organize their vacations independently. Usually designed for 2-6 people, apartments have a kitchen, allowing you to enjoy shared meals in the comfort of a home without crowds and queues. Often, apartments have a shared pool with residents of other units. Renting an individual accommodation option is usually more cost-effective than a hotel. If you’re lucky enough to find an apartment close to the ocean and tourist areas, you can get by without a car; otherwise, we recommend renting one.
Villa in Tenerife
Even more comfortable option than the previous one, as all its services are exclusively for the occupants. If you have a large group, it’s an excellent choice since villas are usually designed for 6-12 people. You can prepare your meals just like in apartments. Contrary to appearances, dining in Tenerife is not expensive; you just need to seek out local places where you won’t overpay. You can have breakfast for as little as 3-5 euros. However, we recommend renting a car for the duration of your stay since villas are usually located in more remote areas such as hillsides. Depending on the standard, villas can additionally offer a terrace, barbecue, pool, and much more.
Hotel in Tenerife
The best option for those who enjoy comfort and service. Most hotels offer all-inclusive options, providing access to meals and drinks throughout the day. You also don’t have to worry about cleaning. Depending on whether the hotel focuses on relaxation and tranquility or entertainment and activities, different aspects characterize it. Family hotels usually offer animation programs, performances, and complexes of pools for adults and children, with some even featuring water slides. For older individuals seeking tranquility or couples looking for a romantic getaway, there are spa hotels often featuring elegant dinners, live music, and shows. There are even hotels exclusively for guests above eighteen years old. If you love spending your vacation within the hotel premises, this option is for you! We have selected a recommended option from each category.
