Of all the places I stayed in Tenerife this was perhaps the best value - but I wouldn't recommend a long stay here. The main reception area is full of character but the rooms are tired and dated, and seemed stuffy, even in the middle of December. A very slight smell of drains too, in the bathroom, although the rooms... More

Just spent Christmas at the most charming hotel,our room was overlooking the church square and the main pedestrian walk away,which was very handy to the old town. The staff and management were extremely friendly and helpful. BUT I realize you can't modernize old buildings and in this case who would want to with its beautiful patios and Canarian balconies,but you... More

Booked-in here for 2 nights, having stayed here previously over 30 years ago. I was so pleased to see that none of its charm had been lost over the decades. It is as appealing now as it was all that time ago. Rooms feed off a main courtyard area, filled with plants and flora. Without doubt this is the best... More

We stayed here for a week in November; its location is perfect; away from the 'new' part of town, near the fishing port and within easy reach of the 'old' town. A 1750s courtyarded mansion converted into a hotel and run by the same family for 80 years. Quiet, very pleasant service, good breakfast. Adequate but not so good evening... More

It has been nearly 2 years since we were last here. Little has changed. It remains a hotel with old world colonial charm, a sort of step back in time establishment where a glimpse or Poirot under a lobby palm tree would not be out of place. One has to remember the Monopol is a 3 star hotel so do... More

This hotel looked good from the reviews so I logged onto the hotel web-site to book a double room for single use. Option on the web-site will only allow a single to be booked if you stipulate that your are a solo traveller. Received a one line email next day from Orlando, who told me that- 'We shall do our...

Our 2nd stay at The Monopol was much better than our 1st ok stay. 2 nights bed & breakfast in early October 2014. The hotel itself is old world charm, wonderful atrium. The room was much better quality, larger and no smoke smell. It faced the side ally but guess thats why it was a special promotion. (previous visit was... More

The prices in the Monopol were reasonable so I wasn't expecting The Ritz... But it would have been nice to have been met by a smile and some eye contact by the Gent at the Reception desk instead of a bowed head that grunted 'passports'....The location was excellent, better not arrive by hire car as no set down and tricky...
