A 3-star with very good infrastructure, clean, well-kept, with a lobby full of plants and palm-trees, adorned with hibiscus flowers throughout and the walls hung with testimonials and local pictures; the poolside bar is very agreeable and the poolside area also has a Finnish sauna, a giant chessboard and a Jacuzzi. The rooms have solid furniture, ceiling fans, a mini-fridge... More

The owner and his family live in the hotel and guests are treated as people rather than a number. The hotel is superbly situated in the centre of Puerto opposite the church (bells!) The tree filled atrium is a wonderful place to relax and meet friends. I have stayed there many times as have many of the guests and the... More

We loved this hotel. It's not the most modern and there are definitely small ways it could be improved such as coffee/tea facilities, a lockable safe and a bit of a refresh but overall it's lovely. The building is stunning and the hosts are friendly. The cleaners put flowers out everyday on the steps which look lovely and the facilities... More

Hotel well situated, staff polite and efficient, rooms a little dated, bathroom had an upgrade and superb, like I say, rooms need to be upgraded. No tea making facilities, so just basic really, a little more investment and thought would pay dividends

Stayed here a few years ago and was great 3 star value. Beautiful flowers put on doorsteps every morning. Now stay in friends spare room (!) when visiting puerto and go back to monopol for morning coffee with egg/ bacon in the bar. Friend's mother has since stayed and also loves charming atmosphere. Definitely better to get room facing the... More

Other reviewers use the word "tired" when describing the Monopol. I know what they mean but, to us, that's like insulting a genteel old lady. We last stayed in 2009 (I think) and returned 16th to 23rd March. We love the fact that nothing much has changed - especially the staff, most of whom I recognised. The service is understated,low...

We were back at the Monopol in February for our 6th visit. We love the central location even if the hotel is a bit tired now. We always choose a balcony room at the front - yes it's noisier on that side but it's also sunnier. This year the sun was in short supply though and the weather was colder... More

This hotel according to a passing guide I overheard one morning was the oldest in Tenerife. Im not sure about that but according to our host, it has been there 125 yrs and run by his family for 85yrs. The traditional wooden balconies adorn the front and the wooden internal, palm court effect in the centre of the hotel was... More

We have just returned home from an amazing stay at the Monopol. We had a room at the back of the hotel with balcony overlooking the sea which we found quiet and a bit cold as this was the worst winter they had had for many years. We asked to change to the front with balcony overlooking the square which... More
