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.

Visiting right at the beginning of 2016, what an amazing way to start the New Year. The welcome was wonderful with a glass of bubbly to start what would become one of the best holidays I have ever had. The pool and outdoor facilities are simply lovely and with a stunning view over the cliffs of Los Gigantes. The buffet selection was always very plentiful with the inclusion of themed nights. The bar has a wide range of very tasty cocktails and was brilliant to retreat to after dinner. I was so impressed with this place my recommendation encouraged my parents to book their own holiday in May. I would be so happy to visit this wonderful hotel and resort again.More
We have just returned from another excellent stay at this hotel. On arrival our check in was completed very fast and efficiently. On going to our room on the 8th floor we found fantastic views and we also had a hottub on our balcony. This is highly recommended if it is within your budget as is a room on the higher floors for the views. The staff are all very friendly at this hotel. Breakfast has a great variety from fruit and yoghurt to full English. The pool bar serves a good variety of snacks during the day. We stayed just bed and breakfast as we like to eat out during day or at night. We had room 806 which had fabulous views over all the area as was corner room so had balcony right round. I would like to thank all the staff at the hotel for there courtesy and friendliness during our stay. We will be returning to this hotel again in the future and will recommend that you try it too.More

perfect location. all you would want for a quiet relaxing sun soaked holiday with good food and comfortable surroundings. nice little bar across the road worth a visit. only criticism would be an area of lounge chairs for relaxing when not wanting to sit in bars or restaurants.More
We had a lovely stay here at the Barcelo Santiago. Unfortunately, as you need to expect with any hotel such as this in a popular destination, sun beds can prove a challenge to find throughout the day and it is a little annoying to see ignorant families and guests disrespectfully leaving for the day/ lunch while leaving towels behind - I feel it would be a lot more efficient if they had someone to monitor this situation, but this is in no way a direct reflection on the hotel itself. If you love sea views and a perfect space for a sea breeze then this hotel is perfect - the views form the sunbathing area, and indeed from many of the rooms, out over the Tenerife Sea is sublime. The area itself is nice with some nice bars and restaurants around. The food itself is perfect for the classic 'Brit abroad' who's after pizza and chips, but for anything genuinely authentic you'll need to find a bar or restaurant - either in Puerto de Santiago itself or in the surrounding areas. Perfect for families and children I suppose. I did notice that the entertainment team met a language barrier with British visitors and I wouldn't really rate the entertainment much at all. Overall this hotel is perfect for families, and indeed couples, after tranquil views and some relaxing time while on holiday in Tenerife. The staff are helpful and mostly cheery. The pillows have to get a star in themselves! I wanted to take mine home!More
Will not be returninor recommending
This is the worst hotel we have been in. Awful food, food poisoning issue, cockroach infestation in room, thefts in hotel, impolite reception staff rooms not properly cleaned , badly worn broken furniture, More
