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.

Enjoyed my time here!
I very much enjoyed my stay here! The staff are very helpful and friendly! The food was so much better then what I thought! Great selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Very tasty! We went half board and they allow you choose if you want lunch or dinner on different days! Next time I will go all inclusive, so I'm not worrying about extra money for drinks. The room was nice! I have never slept in such a comfy bed with comfy pillows!! Amazing night sleeps! I've read negative reviews about this place about the food and rooms, but I think people are just being too picky! This hotel is in a beautiful location with amazing views of the sea and mountains where ever you look! Eating dinner with mountains views! Beautiful! My only negative point is trying to find a free sun bed some days proved a little difficult but we found one in the end. People must get up around 6am just to reserve one. I would definitely return to Barcelo Santiago! :)More

fantastic hotel,staff cant do enough for you...
the location is in a quiet area but ask for directions to Los Gigantes via a path thats a shortcut and you ll find a nice beach and lots of shops and bars etc; pool can get busy and all beds are taken quickly,towels are available for a small fee! Get there early to watch the entertainment especially when its outside where tables are a minimum!!More

Lovely Hotel Excelent Staff
Just come back from a week here. Second time I have been and as always it was fantastic. Staff are very good and can be seen working very hard to look after guests. The hotel was fully booked before we left. Nothing is to much trouble for them and they look after you well. The hotel has a beautiful setting and is well maintained. I have ready other reviews saying that it is tatty in places. I did notice on the balcony some of the green tiles were broke, however I can not imagine the hotel has a surplus supply of these since it was built on 1986! Yes their was a couple of chips on some of the room furniture, so what this does not really matter. The food was mostly very good and constantly being replenished, and you can always find something to eat. Main issue I picked up on was the reserving of sun beds. Come 9am they were all reserved with towels, didn't bother me much as I was out most days. This is bad behaviour by guests though rather than a fault with hotel. I would highly recommend the hotel.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a week all inclusive. It was our first time in Tenerife and we loved it! Room was cleaned every day with a fab sea view and air con when needed. The views from the hotel are stunning. Plenty of food to choose from and all cooked nicely, topped off with very friendly staff. We never waited too long to be served drinks. The entertainment team were all brilliant, providing lots of activities throughout the day and shows at night. Only short walks to nearby towns and our Thomson rep was brilliant when arranging trips etc for us. Would definitely recommend as we will soon be going back!! More
