Puerto de Santiago - "Best of Both Towns"

The peaceful and relaxing resort of Puerto de Santiago, on the south west coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, is regarded as an area that is developing into a major rival for the Los Gigantes resort. In fact you can enjoy the best of both towns as it is situated right next door to it with easy access via a short, paved coastal walkway that also takes you past ‘Crab Island’ - a natural swimming pool for free public use.

Recent developments in this area are the popular Balcon de Los Gigantes apartments and the refurbished Hotel Barcelo, which offers first class spa services. Between these buildings are supermarkets and an array of restaurants and bars which offer a variety of evening entertainment including singers, comedians and flamenco dancers. The neighbouring seafront restaurant ‘Limone’ offers fabulous views and good food, where pods of dolphins can often be seen swimming past in the early evening (whale and dolphin watching boat trips depart daily from Los Gigantes harbour). The café below this restaurant is perfect for an ice cream or sun-downer cocktail. There has been recent investment in newly paved pathways around the Hotel Barcelo and through to the nearest beach (5 minutes) and the small local fishing harbour. It includes a childrens play area and strategically placed benches to take in the stunning sea views and the great Los Gigantes cliffs.

This pathway also takes you through to the black sandy Blue Flag beach of Playa de la Arena (10 minute walk) which is popular with both locals and tourists. Here you will find a further array of shops and restaurants and an internet café within the amusement arcade. The higher point of Puerto de Santiago, behind the Balcon de Los Gigantes complex includes the Vigilia shopping centre and two highly recommended restaurants – ‘The Chicken Shack’, which is packed to the rafters every night during high season (reservations are recommended), and ‘Fetuccines’ for excellent pizzas, pasta and steaks and their very popular Monday special of slow roasted lamb shank. Also, recently opened between these two establishments is a very good Mexican restaurant.

July brings an annual week long fiesta with open air mass at the fishing harbour and a spectacular firework display can be watched from the beach, plus there is a fun fair and live music from well known Latino bands at close by Playa de La Arena. Car hire is readily available and the roads behind the resort lead into the mountains where you will find some great local produce, food and wine in the villages at very reasonable prices. You will also be on your way to the spectacular Mount Teide and the ancient village of Masca (excursions available with pickup from Puerto de Santiago) – the walk down through the canyons to the beach is a must for keen walkers and much of the flora is unique to this area. For golfers the Abama course is a 15 minute drive or there are several courses at nearby Adejé (20 mins).

The bottle of wine and fruit bowl was very welcome. The outside seating area is very large, as it is on the ground floor from the upper road and is more a terrace than a balcony. Bedroom has a very large and comfortable bed and lots of storage space, it also has electric shutters to keep the room dark overnight. Big TV in lounge, but very few English channels, Netflix to the rescue via free wifi! Plenty of parking spaces outside and also a reserved one in the underground garage. You are somewhat isolated up the hill from the resorts, so either contemplate taxis or, if you feel fit, pack some good walking shoes. Walking to the resorts and to the supermarkets is very easy with lit paving all the way. The only problem is, it is a steep way, but that's Tenerife for you! We tended to drive to go shopping at the supermarkets nearby, which all have lots of free parking. Only criticism would be that the apartment could do with a 'house' book, with details of useful numbers, taxis, doctor, how things work etc. Enjoyed our week and a half stay there, particularly as we had excellent weather every day, except for the day we left, when the rain fell out of skies.

Great views all round. Friendly Spanish neighbours who live there full time. Been twice now and would go back again.

The location is very convenient for all the local amenities, shops bars and restaurants and also a short walk from the picturesque harbour. In saying that it's also peaceful once you get used to visitors parking on the road directly outside the apartments terrace. On the whole the apartment is very well appointed plenty of crockery and glasses, comfortable beds and a very good (by Canarian standards) shower. Our experience of broadband connectivity in the Canaries has always been poor and so perhaps having a smart TV is a little ambitious. The door handles could all do with a bit of TLC but perhaps that's just me being a little professionally pedantic! Overall a clean comfortable apartment which we'd be happy to recommend and return to.
