This clifftop hotel has some of the best views in Tenerife. It also has 4 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 4 pools, one 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 5-minute walk from the hotel.

our first stay
Had seen some bad reviews regarding the food, but these were unfounded. There was a huge choice, and always food cooked to order. Plenty of fresh fruit, bread, desserts, and food for every nationality.More
We have stayed in this hotel for the past 8 years and whilst the room decor is tired the efficient staff and excellent service make up for it. We upgraded from a standard room on this trip but I would not do this again. The standard rooms have a better position and are quieter. The food is good and the all inclusive deal is good value.More
From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave, the staff at this hotel were on hand for you 24 hours a day, they honestly could not do enough for you for a perfect stay. Our room was nice and clean and on the ground floor, I would recommend a 3rd or 4th floor room so that you can take in the amazing views. Views from the pool area and resteraunt were breathtaking. Food 1st class, we went on a half board basis but I would recommend the all-inclusive option. This was our first visit to Tenerife and our first time staying with "barcelo hotels" and I would be happy to return again. Thank you Barcelo Santiago for a lovely stay. More

Stunning Views of Los Gigantes
Stayed 10 night early May Pros: Excellent views of Los Gigantes from the restaurant and gardens. Good room on 5th floor with sea views from balcony of La Gomera and crashing waves on the rocks close by. Room was decent size with comfortable beds and good selection of pillows. Good location for the Masca gorge walk (40mins taxi drive to the top of the hill, 4hour trek to the sea and pre-booked boat back to Los Gigantes was an amazing experience). Hotel only 5mins walk along coastal path to the beach at Puerto Santiago. Staff friendly in buffet restaurant, especially on the terrace. Breakfasts were very good with freshly squeezed orange juice every morning. Attractive pool area with sun beds and umbrellas although size of pools smaller than expected. After checking out of room there was an opportunity to use showers in the Spa. . Cons: Bathroom drains smelled of sewage as did some areas near the sunbed terrace. Balcony had little privacy as sides were only partly screened. Sunbed claimers were annoying, often not using the sunbeds until late afternoon despite claiming them before breakfast, hotel needs to operate a policy to deter this. All inclusive, yet the pool bar was the only place available for coffee during the day (between 1pm and 3pm everyone had to pay for drinks from the pool bar). Variety of drinks available for all inclusive was limited in choice compared to other 4star hotels. Recommend taking travel kettle as 3 euros a day to hire one. Coffee first available at breakfast which opens at 8am. Hotel did not cater well for lactose intolerant guests, no alternatives to cows cheese, most deserts contained cream and alternatives to milk available some breakfasts was poor.More
