Lovely Lovely place to stay. I split my holiday on the 2 sides of the island. Garachico is on the more greener side of the island so its cooler than the other side. For that reason I split my holiday between two centres staying 4 days in Hotel Rural El Patio and 3 days in the other. I am glad... More

Just back from a week at El Patio, a lovely hotel near Garachico on the NW coast of Tenerife. We stayed in the main hotel, in room No. 1, the door of which opens on to said patio, which is beautiful. There are seating areas in the gardens as well as a very comfortable lounge. The room was a standard... More

Do not stay here. Dark, dank place with uncomfortable accommodations. Smell of chemical pesticides will burn your throat. WiFi does not work anywhere. Walls are thin such that you hear neighbors. Bed is pitiful. I have been more comfortable camping. Left early and had much better accommodations elsewhere for same price.

Well, it was an interesting proposition. The Hotel El Patio is certainly out of the ordinary, tucked away as it is on a banana plantation a few miles outside Garachico. It's extremely difficult to find at night (hint: you need to get through the green security gate) but initial impressions are favourable; with a charming host, a delightful courtyard, and... More

We've just come back from an uncharacteristically cold,overcast and grey 10 days in Tenerife, and were very glad of the cosiness and comfort of our hotel choice - the Rural El Patio. As the name tells you, the hotel is centred round a delightful large patio-courtyard, with trees and flowers and many sofas, armchairs and tables to sit in and... More

We spent a week here in December and enjoyed our stay very much. The setting of El Patio is amazing, the grounds are lush and the banana plantation was very interesting to walk through. The rooms were slightly dated but very comfortable and were cleaned daily by pleasant friendly staff. We had room 6 and, in it, were able to... More

It took us time to acclimatise as our first impression was that the hotel was too formal. This was dispelled however as our stay progressed and we were able to utilise the facilities around the estate which compensated for our Double Room being on the small size but comfortable, tucked away alongside one of several pretty courtyard gardens. There are... More

Our first visit to Tenerife, away from the crowds in the south, El Patio seemed the ideal place for a quiet get away. After negotiating mountain roads at night, which I wouldn't advise, especially as a long, but easier drive on motorways from the south airport was available, we found the hotel. Unfortunately our satnav refused to believe it existed,... More

A fabulous place to stay. Relaxing atmosphere. Superb facilities. Very friendly owner and staff and so helpful. We had a very comfortable room with its own terrace and enjoyed the absence of a television & a phone. Although the absence of a kettle did bother me initially! No morning tea!! But the bar was just at the bottom of the... More

Have just spent three wonderfully relaxing days at El Patio. Couldn't have started our holiday in a better way. Staff were very discreet and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Elena, to help us with. We felt as if we were part of the family. We had a standard double which was very comfortable and the hotel... More
