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.

Perfect - loved it and can't wait to come back
Had the best holiday, and can't wait to return hopefully for longer next time! Rooms may need a lick of paint, but for the time spent in rooms this can be easily overlooked. Hotel is lovely and clean , just perfect! More
Hotel barcelo santiago
Could have been beter. Food was a big let down and had a leaking bathroom for our last 3 days no action was taking so we had a bathroom tgat was like a swimming pool went to reception 3 times and all that was done was they sent a cleaner to mop it up not actually sort the problemMore
Cannot fault the hotel as it was absolutely lovely, the rooms let them down a little bit, they just need undating and air con to be sorted out. The views are amazing and cannot fault the food or the staff!More

Lovely location - poor rooms.
This is a large hotel with over 400 rooms. The location is spectacular with fantastic views of Los Gigantes cliffs from the the pool areas. The food was fine and the staff were very friendly. The rooms need drastic refurbmishment. We booked a junior suite - number 469. It was depressing, absolutely awful. Views of the sea and La Gomera but the interior was so bad that we didn't want to be in the room. More
Great Holiday - amazing views
We stayed at the hotel from 13th-20thJune 2017. We stayed in room 557 which is a twin sea view room, it was a good room with great views of the rocky shores even though basic, like the other reviews have said, you do not need any other amenities. The hotel grounds itself are spotlesss, the staff work tirelessly to keep the area clean and tidy around the pool and in the restaurants etc. There are lots of different areas to get food and drink or to sunbathe, near or away from the pool. We hired one of the beds overlooking the rocks one day and was lovely, but if you're going to pay for it make sure you stay there most of the day. Like other reviews have said, their is lots of choice of food in the restaurant and pool bar however, it is the same array of choice each day. Therefore there is lots of food I like but some I do not want to eat everyday for lunch and dinner... but the food is very very good. The jelly is great. The food needs to be labelled more, if I was vegetarian or gluten free etc. I would struggle to know what and what not to eat. We ate outside in the patio area most days which you have to queue for but for a maximum of 5 minutes even in peak times. The majority of staff were incredible and remembered us and knew our orders and joked with however some waiter/waitress staff were rude and push in front you when getting food or push the food trolleys near you and do not apologise. The customer facing waiter staff who Served us were incredible. Thank you David at the pool bar and Nancy on reception! The entertainment team were lively and had events planned all day every day! The evening performances varied... the mamma Mia night was good but the performers lip synced to the songs and dialogue which wasn't great but still enjoyed the night! This hotel is brilliant and we really enjoyed our stay - only a few minor improvements to compete with other 4 star all inclusive hotels I have stayed in.More
