Spain’s Canary Islands are popular year-round for their temperate climate, gorgeous beaches, and excellent night life. The biggest island is Tenerife, and although the biggest tourist crowds tend to come from Germany and the United Kingdom, it makes a fabulous beach vacation destination for anyone. The Canaries allow you to experience a tropical holiday without leaving the comforts of a European country – and few destinations are as tourist-ready, with lots of cheap hotels in Tenerife to choose from.
The capital city of Santa Cruz is one place to look for cheap hotels in Tenerife, but the city is also full of big and expensive resort hotels. The city of Las Americas is purpose built as a tourist destination, so is chock full of hotels in every budget range. It is, in fact, almost entirely made up of hotels and restaurants, so it should not be hard to find yourself a room at a reasonable price. If you are looking for a room in a particular area, however, you will want to book early.
Clearly, the beaches in Tenerife are the biggest attraction – and this island has all the requisite water sports on offer, too, including some excellent diving. But what you might not expect from an island destination is that it is also home to the tallest mountain in all of Spain – El Teide. While it is technically a dormant volcano, it is still not terribly accessible to tour groups. The town of La Laguna is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a great place to explore.
Some of the cheap hotels in Tenerife you should check out are Hotel Acuario (in the town of San Antonio, 1.5km from town center in residential area, 105 rooms, views of El Teide from some rooms, on-site restaurant & bar, swimming pool, internet access available), Gran Hotel El Tope (in Puerto de la Cruz, some rooms with view of Puerto de la Cruz, 5 minute walk to beach, on-site restaurant, swimming pool, fitness center), Catalonga Oro Negro (in Playa de Las Americas, 800 meters from town center and beach, 269 rooms, laundry service, on-site restaurant & bar, outdoor pool, golf courses nearby), Hotel Bitacora (in Playa de Las Americas, 3 minute walk to the beach, on-site restaurant & bars, 2 swimming pools, entertainment for kids, tennis court & mini-golf), and Hotel La Siesta (in Playa de Las Americas, on-site restaurants, swimming pool, on-site entertainment, internet access available, fitness center).
