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.

Brilliant views, excellent food and service
At present sitting on my large 4th floor balcony enjoying the spectacular views and arm sunshine. Having a canopy helps . First time to Tenerife, and very impressed with the Barcelo santiago. Views are stunning from most areas of the hotel, sun beds are usually available but maybe not always close to the pool. My favourite spot is on the terrace overlooking the impressive cliffs and views to Los Gigantas. Similar views can be found at the back of the restaurant where I often have breakfast and lunch. Plenty of choices at all meals and the fresh fish cooked for you is wonderful- my choice at most meals. All inclusive covers most food and drinks with a small supplement for some branded drinks. Looking forward to my second week here and the arrival of my children so that we can enjoy the beautiful scenic walks around here. Would thoroughly recommend the Barcelo santiago : clean everywhere, food to suit different tastes, fabulous views and very hard working staff at the pool bar. BrilliantMore
Lovely quiet location, ideal for a relaxing few days away.
Hotel situated in a quiet part of tenerife. Nearest town is a taxi ride away. Only a few bars within walking distance but they are nice bars to drink at and staff were very friendly. Location is very hilly with lots of steps. There is no beach within a short walk but the views around the hotel are breathtaking. More
Brilliant 10 days
Just got back from 10 days away with my girlfriend. We upgraded the room when we booked and were a little apprehensive to see the room. We are so glad we upgraded and were on the top floor because the views and room were unbelievable. The hotel was really nice with a great selection on food and drink. The staff at the bar and restaurant also went out of their way to help us and I can't thank them enough. The entertainment team were really good and the amount of different activities were impressive. I wouldn't normally go back to the same hotel but I definitely would for the Barcelo Santiago. Very impressed!More
