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.

Nightmare 2 nights now with NO sleep!
We have been here since Tuesday 13th September 2016 & have had hardly any sleep for the last 2 nights!! Despite complaining that our rooms on floor 1 rooms 103 & 105 has a hum like an aircraft taking off every 3 minutes to Reception we have been told we cannot be moved until Friday 16th when half our holiday will be over!! ð¡ Not happy & will never return to this hotel ever again!! The views are amazing & staff are lovely, the food is good & this is such a shame that our holiday has been spoilt. ð¡ð¡ð¡ Hopefully after reading this the management will do something about it & get us the hell out of here!!!More

All inclusive is not all inc. You had to pay for certain drinks and if you ate at the pool bar during certain times. Food okay but get monotonous and couldn't face it the last 3 nights so we ate out. Toilets an issue. 3 toilets to serviceman restaurant, pool bar and pools and 2 function room. 1st week only one toilet worked and no taps, taps were fixed quick, 2nd week two working loo's but only 1 flushed so you can imagine what it was like for a large hotel feeding 100's of guests at a time! Some really lovely staff but some really rude staff too; you'll know if you don't like you as they slam your drinks onthe table and generally avoid serving you and even when they do they make it as difficult as possible pretending they don't understand or repeating back the wrong thing; it was really awful when a certain group was on shift and I've racked my brain as to what we could've done wrong but cannot fathom what it was. I was on holiday with my parents who are retired and they got the same treatment from a certain few. Rooms are clean and the pools are clean.More
Great holiday, great place
This hotel is very good in a lovely peaceful setting where you can watch the dolphins from the sun terrace, the staff are amazing and very attentive, also very polite and friendly. The food and drink was excellent plenty of variety and traditional. The beds are brilliant and so comfortable, bedding and towels were of good quality and changed as often as you would like. The spa was very nice. The animation team were very good and worked very hard and put on excellent shows, also the the other evening entertainment was very good and professional, we were there for 2 weeks and saw a different show every night. The pools were clean and warm, our room was good lovely big balcony with an amazing Sea view,all in all a very enjoyable holiday at this hotel, and would not hesitate to go back, the only gripe is that that the room was looking a bit tired and furniture needs an upgrade with a bit more storage, but well done Barcelo Santa's for making our holiday a very enjoyable one xxMore
