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

Stayed in this hotel with my husband for three nights and was very happy with our choice. Have stayed in Puerto de la Cruz before but first time staying here. Had admired it from the outside while visiting previously, as most people do while strolling past. People are forever photographing it. The hotel is in the old town of Puerto... More

My husband and I recently visited Tenerife and wanted a hotel that was quiet and not too big.The Monopol fitted the bill apart from rather loud music in the nearby square from 6pm onwards. The room was comfortable but the bathroom looked in need of a makeover, and we had cockroaches in there on 2 occasions. However the staff were... More

The hotel benefits from being very central and having a very attractive entrance enhanced by fresh daily flowers. The lovely courtyard with palms and other plants climbing up the internal balconies is also a big plus and well maintained. Unfortunately this does not continue through the rest of the hotel. In the corridor some of the paper is starting to... More

Facilities in the hotel include a swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi.Entertainment was also provided on some of the evenings. The hotel has been run by the same family for... More
