This clifftop hotel has some of the best views in Tenerife. It also has three pools and its own tapas joint.
The views at the Barcelo Santiago are hard to beat. Look one way and you’ll see the Atlantic Ocean and the neighbouring island of La Gomera. Look the other, and you’ll see the cliffs of Los Gigantes.
The hotel has three pools, plus another just for kids. On the food front, there’s a buffet restaurant, an à la carte and a tapas place. Better still, Puerto de Santiago’s sandy beach is just a five-minute walk from the hotel.

Accommodation- Stayed in room 301. Very clean big room. We arrived at night so I wasn't sure if we had a see view as we were right next to a set of steps. Great view in the day time. Shower was amazing. Every day the room was cleaned. Although the day before we left the bathroom stank of sewerage. Pool area was big with lots of sun-beds to go around. You can choose to be by the pool, near the kids club or the other end of the hotel. We always chose by the warm pool. Every few hours the entertainment team would make some noise with music, do a dance and try to entice people to join in with their activities. This didn't bother us as it was only 10mins a day. We only went into one pool as it was warmer then the first one we dipped our toes in. Fantastic views of San SebastiÃ¡n opposite. Restaurant - The food was great. Lots of options. Different theme each night with the Asian night being absolutely delicious. The staff within the restaurant were amazing. They would be at your table within seconds of walking in taking our drink order. They would clear our table in the blink of an eye. Great staff. Although at lunch and dinner if you want more then one drink you need to order them all at the same time. Pool bar - lovely place to sit in the evening. The team were very friendly especially a man named Alex who would keep out glasses topped up without us having to ask! Thank you :) The snack bar is also in the pool bar. It's not a snack bar, I'd class this as an outdoor restaurant. Good food. Table service at all times which is nice. Great views. Location - Beach is only 5 mins away but it's very small. We didn't really venture far. Popped to the shops. Few bars but we didn't go in them. We booked two trips with the office next door to the hotel. Siam Park and Loro parque. Bus to Siam wasn't too bad about an hour both ways. Siam park was great fun! Although on the way back we had a 6 seat mini bus with 8 guests. The driver had two men sat on the floor to get back. Loro parque was good but the bus took 2 hours, way to far if you are staying at this hotel as it was a whole day waisted sat on a bus. We were told both trips would take an hour each way. All in all we had a great time at this hotel and will definitely recommend it to others. Thank you to all the staff you made it great. More
Barcelona Santiago Hotel
The reviews of this hotel are generally very good which I wholeheartedly agree with. My only comment is that personally I found that soon into our 14 day stay the buffet style dining, although the food was excellent, became an unenjoyable experience. Too hot and overcrowded, my next stay will be on a bed and breakfast basis; there are many good restaurants with table service within walking distance of the hotel.More

November 2016 holiday
First holiday we said we would certainly return to a hotel, and resort, the staff are very pleasant and professional, bar staff really helpful always making sure you are ok and tables cleaned -rooms cleaned everyday, pools and position of the hotel excellent, plenty of sunbeds. Food varied everyday and plenty of it. We went all inclusive and well worth its money. Certainly going to return to this hotel and resort for a bit of winter sun.More
Brilliant. Definitely recommend and would go back again
Pools, day and night entertainment, staff and food were brilliant. Kids club was nice too although more suited to kids 2 years+. I regret not staying longer and would absolutely go back again. In fact I will be looking to book with Barcelo in other locations too.More
