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).

It seems a rare find in Tenerife, a private villa with pool and garden and the local area was quiet but well serviced. Otto is meticulous meaning that the villa was spotless on arrival. The check in and check out is very thorough so allow time for this. I would agree with an earlier review that the bedding is not luxury but it was adequate but if you are particular about it I would suggest you take your own. (I took a mattress protector for my little one!) I have suggested to Otto that, if there are other families with young children, he might wish to provide plastic crockery and cups - I would have been a little less anxious had these been provided, in the end we went and bought disposables which was fine. For older children there would be no concerns and the villa would be extremely well suited to them. Otto visits on a daily basis but is unobtrusive and was very helpful. All in all we had a lovely time, the villa was an excellent base for us and I would recommend it to others.

                                                                                                      We were here for a month and really enjoyed our stay. On arrival we were treated to a full fruit bowl and a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. The apartment was very clean, well equipped, and comfortably furnished. The furniture on the terrace was great but the addition of a couple of sun beds would have made the most of the glorious afternoon sunshine. The kitchen has just about everything, even a Nespresso coffee machine. If we had to be picky the addition of a toaster would have been useful at breakfast time, The beds were comfortable and there was a huge amount of storage in the bedrooms. The bathrooms were well equipped with plenty of towels and an endless supply of hot water, however there isn't a shaver socket so an adapter may be required. The lounge has a huge comfortable sofa but the TV only has one English Channel. We had a chrome cast and Netflix so that got around that problem. There is aircon but we didn't need it. If you have a car there is a garaged parking space provided. The apartment is in a relatively quiet area but if you sunbathe on the terrace there can be some noise from the hotel down the road. There are two large supermarkets nearby and three superdinos within walking distance for those last minute equirements. There is a large gym complex just down the road which allows you to join for various lengths of time. The pool there is purely for lane swimming (perfect for me) and they have various yoga and Pilates classes. A months membership was about £60 for two which included the admin fee(membership cards) and Pilates classes three times a week. There are plenty of restaurants along the sea front none of which are expensive. The Fishermans Inn for great seafood, Bobby's for Indian and next door for Italian (can't remember the name). We also liked Legends for the specials and watching the rugby. There are a couple of beaches but they constantly had a red flag flying. For safe sea swimming you need to go along the coast to Playa San Juan. The beach there has good parking, toilets, and a good restuarant. Two beds and a parasol for 7.5 euros per day. We will definitely be back and would use this apartment again, if available, or one of the other apartments Olga looks after. Olga was great, easily contactable for any problems, and a pleasure to deal with. Rob Worthington
