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).

                                                Very relaxing holiday

                                                5 of 5
                                                Comfortable villa in a complex which has an excellent pool and very helpful reception staff. For us, the highlight was the west-facing balcony/terrace. This overlooks the sea and we dined there at sunset every night of our stay. The view is terrific: the Los Gigantes cliffs to one side and, on some nights, the unique phenomenon of a wall-like cloud bank moving across the sea towards us. This produced some fascinating effects – an exceptional sight! The owners were very helpful with our preparations and responded instantly to a little problem we experienced while we were there. We had a very relaxing stay.

                                                This is one JEM of a Apartment, in one Beautiful and Quiet Resort. The apartment was very Comfortable, Relaxing,Tastefully decorated and very well looked after. The pool and the rest of the apartment block was kept ammaculately clean. There is a supermarket literally on the doorstop, which is very reasonable and the staff are very freindly and helpful. There are two beautiful beaches a short walk away, and also a park over looking the sea were you can exercise with the exercising equipment free of charge. There are buses running regular, also just a short walk away to bus stop. Plenty of choises for Restaurants/Take aways and also Bars/Sports bars. My husband and I have been coming to Tenerife for the last 8 years over the christmas/newyear and have never experienced anywhere else as clean and the locals being so freindly and helpful then any where else on the Island. Love It..We'll Be Back. Thankyou So Much, Jema and Miguel.

                                                The pictures and description were very accurate.

                                                5 of 5
                                                The property was dominated by the large terrace which had excellent views of the pool ,harbour and the cliffs.The interior was also in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. If you were not renting a car the steep slopes from the centre could be a bit tiresome for elderly guests. We would have no hesitation in returning in future.
