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 house is fully equipped with every convenience including a large capacity fridge/freezer, plenty of pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cutlery etc. The outdoor spaces and pool are fantastic and include a shaded dining area. Outside there are 7 sun loungers, 7 recliners, 7 outdoor dining seats and 3 patio tables. I counted 15 bath towels plus several hand and pool/beach towels also. Changes of bed linen were left in the wardrobes and there is a handy large covered patio with a number of clothes lines when such items have to be washed. The house was clean and comfortable, albeit a little old fashioned but old fashioned doesn’t bother me as long as it’s clean and it works. All bedrooms had ceiling fans, mirrors and dressing tables. There was also a tower fan in one of the bedrooms and we bought a second one in the local ferretería. Access instructions were very easy to follow. When I informed Tara our departure flight was a late one she readily offered us the use of the house for as long as we liked as she did not have people checking in that day. We were so grateful as it meant we didn’t have to hang around in 30 degree heat! The location is fantastic – only a short walk to either Los Gigantes or to Puerto Santiago. There are 2 large supermarkets within walking distance and a large Mercadona within a few minutes drive. Alcala and San Juan are nice places to visit within a short drive also. So, why 4.5 instead of 5 for this property? There are a few small issues in the bathrooms – the interior workings of the toilet cisterns don’t seem to shut off the flow when the cistern is full which means there is a small flow of water constantly going into the toilet – so perhaps replacing the plastic interiors would fix this? The tap in the twin room leaked at the base so we had to put a face cloth around it. The junk in the garage and downstairs cupboards needs to be cleared out.. this area is not part of the living area but still. Since we had a large 7 seater car we were not sure if it would fit so we just parked it in the courtyard. Did these small things affect our holiday? Not at all. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend and return ourselves. BTW calima can cover a spotless patio, pool, windows and outdoor furniture in a very short time as we experienced ourselves during our stay!
