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 was handy to have the use of beach towels while we were there and not have to pack our own. Nice pool and good to have sunloungers to use. We were made most welcome! Enjoyed Rincon de Antonio restaurant by the marina and the local beach was good for body-boarding in the mornings. Good food at the Fisherman's Inn in the next village, with interesting little fishing museum on the walk over there. Very handy to have Hiperdino supermarket a few minutes walk away too.

The beach is virtually on your door step about 50m away along with a little supermarket, and plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. Playa de la Arena is quieter than the very built up and touristy area of Las Americas/Adeje but they are both easy to get to via car and don't take that long. Ruth & Peter are very helpful and answered all many queries quickly and even left our 6 year old a little present as we stayed over Christmas. We had a wonderful week here and would highly recommend staying here.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenage kids) and it really did tick every box we wanted from the location to the facilities and beyond. Similar families - if you're looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable apartment with a lovely clean pool to rent in an easy to find, convenient location then this is the place for you! Walking distance from both Los Gigantes and Puerto de Santiago with their varied restaurants, supermarkets and shops and within 30 mins from Playa de las Americas means there's no shortage of things to do and see. If you hire a car the rest of the island is your oyster and is well worth venturing out to see, the volcanic landscape is stunning! For real Canarian fish restaurants head towards Garachio or Puerto de la Cruz on the north coast (via Masca on the TF346 - but watch where you're going!!), and if wildlife is your thing take a boat trip out of Los Gigantes harbour to see the Dolphins and Pilot Whales - stunning. If however you are after the noisy nightlife/ party atmosphere then you'd be better to look further south in one of the resorts as these would cater better for that sort of visitor. Nahid and Ross were prompt and very polite in correspondence with us before and after our stay, booking was easy and fuss-free, and Jane met us on arrival and showed us round as promised. Overall and in every way we rate this property as 5 star and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family, and would very happily go back again. Thank you Nahid, Ross and Jane!
