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 property was much larger than I expected, clean, well equipped and with the most amazing views! The pool was a real bonus and a nice size so that you can actually swim rather than dunk. I had not been to this part of Tenerife before, but it is now my favourite part; not over developed, amenities within a sort drive and the most amazing walks/climbs/views. Some of the walks can be challenging so make sure you are well prepared (proper boots, water etc) but well worth the effort. There is a really useful site with information on the network of routes via http://www.todotenerife.es/en/article/show/5049/0-red-de-senderos. Whether driving, walking cycling (or crawling!!) I would really recommend a trip to Masca. There are lots of laces to eat in the local towns, but I would recommend looking out for "local" places, and the papas arrugadas (or canarian potatoes) are worth the trip alone. We didn't spend much time at the beaches, apart from our last day which was a perfect end to the holiday. The stay was really well organised, we were met en route from the airport and all amenities, questions answered, the team couldn't have been more helpful or flexible, despite us having to delay our arrival at the last minute. I would thoroughly recommend it!

                                                                                                      NOT FOR pre-school children because of the low balustrade and sheer drops. DO pay Tara to have the pool heated … ask for this at time of booking request. PRINT maps of how to get to the villa … it is on a ONE WAY STREET, and a satnav will not bring you there. It took us 3/4 hour to find it! ~ There are unparalleled views of Los Gigantes, but the villa, though beautiful with marble floors and chandeliers, is tired. Two of the bathrooms’ toilets are if-y, but the third (the grey one) has an excellent shower and toilet. The gas fired BBcue is AMAZING! (remember to put a metal pan underneath as lit fat drips from the BBcue!) It took us two WHOLE DAYS to work out that the fourth digit from the end of the wifi code on the back of the router is a 9 and not an S, but then the wifi worked wonderfully. The kitchen utensils and crockery are eclectic, but the wine and brandy glasses are gorgeous! The electricity went off (fuse box in the downstairs hall needed the main switch flicked), but the cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine are excellent. The water went off for a couple of hours and really panicked us … but then it came back on, good as new! The one thing that we found untenable, coming from UK, was the bedding. DO bring pillows and pillow cases as there are only long bolsters for pillows. Mattress covers would be highly recommended too. Having said that, the villa itself is very clean (I was surprised that another reviewer thought not) and so are the sheets and towels. There is an excellent (daily?) rubbish pick-up if you leave bags in the hole in the wall outside the Villa. The villa is tricky to drive in and out of, but the electric gate, operated via a key fob (which we found on a table in the downstairs hall) is impressive! Will we stay again …? YES! Now we know the villa’s foibles we most definitely WOULD … but will absolutely BRING THAT BEDDING!!
