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.

This buffet restaurant serves a range of international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's live show cooking with meat, fish and pasta dishes. Not only that but you can enjoy your meal while admiring the views of La Gomera. There's a dress code here, with long trousers for gentlemen at dinner.
There are three outdoor pools to choose from. Dotted with palm trees, sunbeds and parasols you have views of the sea from all three. The pool snack bar is also within easy reach.
On some days, this restaurant serves meat grills and a dessert buffet selection. On other days it becomes a Tapas bar, complete with a choice of Spanish wines and a terrace with views of Mount Teide. It's open on selected days and there's a smart-casual dress code - men are asked to wear full-length trousers at dinner.
This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and wasn't disappointed. There were plenty of sunbeds (although to get a view of the sea you need to get there early). There were notices not to reserve but as usual ignored. The bar staff were very quick and efficient both by the pool and in the theatre in the evening. The food was good especially the 'show cooking' which meant you could have fresh cooked while you waited. The rooms were very clean and comfortable - its nice to have a sofa to sit on instead of just the bed. If you can, get a room on a higher floor for a better view although floor 1 (which I was on ) was still ok, just looked at the sea through the fence. The only thing that let it down was the late checkout shower. Previously we were allocated an empty room to shower and change, this time we had to use the spa which was hardly big enough for two people (don't take your case - no room) Overall though it is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday - enjoy!More
