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.

Los Gigantes best hotel
Perfect views, nice staff members, good entertaiment. Many dishes and plenty of fruits also ice creams. Producks of were rather high quality, orginal drinks (cola, fanta etc.). In general best view at that part of island.More
Beautiful views, lovely week away
Amazing location overseeing the sea, easy access to bars and restaurants. Pools are great and entertainment throughout the day. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Good variety of food, I am a bit fussy so did not enjoy all aspects that the restaurant had to offer but my partner fully indulged! More
This was our third visit and once again I highly recommend this hotel The pool bar runs like clockwork - food & service are first class Everywhere is kept clean & tidy - pool area, reception, corridors Staff are attentive and eager to please We were all inclusive - overall the food is very good & varied - a minor criticism being the deserts on offer - however cheese & biscuits were a good alternative Views from the hotel are really beautiful, easy access to the sea, albeit rocky! Short walk to the village shops & 10/15 minutes to 2 small towns Lots of activities supported by a very enthusiastic animation team Finally - a negative - that being the room we stayed in was a bit 'tired' & needs updating - I mentioned this to Marta (customer services) she pointed out upgrading of rooms was in progress & immediately offered us an upgrade (which we did not take as it wasn't so important to us) & a free meal in the A La Carte Restaurant to compensate - can't say fairer than that! Would not hesitate to recommend overall Thank you all More
Relaxing short break
We've just returned from a 5 night break at the Barcelo. I have to say I was a bit worried after reading the odd negative review but I have to say we were not left disappointed. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite and yes the room is a bit dated but the bed was the most comfortable bed we've slept in for a while and the view was outstanding. The room was clean and had everything we wanted with the addition of a coffee machine and a mini fridge. I can understand some people's gripes of not having tea and coffee making facilities as the norm given it's a 4 star hotel but we were lucky enough to have them. There was no noise from neighbouring rooms, either adjoining or above us, all you could hear was the occasional shutting of doors. The air con was a bit weak abs I think it might struggle in The height of summer but for the end of September it was adequate, we also had a larger than normal room which may have effected its performance. The grounds and public areas of the hotel were spotless. The variety of food was great and there was always more than enough for everybody . A couple of days we went for lunch 15 minutes before the end of service but you'd never know from the quality and amount of food on offer. I can recommend the profiteroles and cheese board (although not together). Most of the staff were very friendly and appear to enjoy their jobs, which can't be said for a few who were obviously having a bad day. Overall we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel if a relaxing break is what you're after!More
