Found this super suite through owners direct. It was our first visit to Tenerife and we were really unknown as to the best location and type of accommodation. Booking and communication with Ursula, the lovely owner, was efficient and effective which boosted my confidence!.
Ursula provided driving directions from the airport and we found the villa, situated above the town of Puerto de la Cruz in a banana plantation, very easily. There are a number of different types of accommodation at Villa Rosalva although the overall feel is of a small, cozy and private holiday site. Our suite was in the old part of the villa, beautifully decorated and with lovely furnishings and antiques. It was completely lovely, the bathroom is super and the kitchen just well enough equipped for a bit of ad hoc holiday catering. Ursula delivers fresh bread daily if you wish and this was useful for putting together lunchtime sandwiches during our exploration of the island. Plenty of free bananas available as well!
There is a lovely swimming pool and a very friendly dog who loves you to help him play with a succession of squeaky toys secreted about the beautiful gardens.
The gardens provide fabulous views of snow capped Mt Teide in one direction and the sea in another. We walked down into the town most evenings which took around twenty minutes (we're pretty fit and fast walkers!) and a taxi back again (less fit after a couple of beers!) was around €5.
I would definitely recommend any of the accommodation at Villa Rosalva for a friendly and relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.
