We had 4 nights here in October 2013 and were very disappointed. Icod itself had little to offer and it was difficult to find a restaurant open on 2 nights. The hotel was very difficult to find since only the San Agustin name is used on signs, and we eventually needed a motorcycle police escort to get there! Parking in the public car park down a steep street is just too far away and difficult even though the hotel arranges it free for guests. The main street makes loading and unloading the luggage a very rushed operation. The staff in reception and cafe were very friendly and helpful, though it took 2 days to replace a light bulb in an already dark bathroom. We were given a choice of room overlooking the courtyard or street and chose the latter because the other was very small and dark with only a very small window. The room 2 was also a bit dark but a decent size with a large comfortable bed and although it overlooked the street the noise was actually not a great problem, just the odd bit from about 7.00am. The WiFi was good and we appreciated the daily bottle of water and chocolate bars. But the room had no safe, fridge, wardrobe or cupboard. The shower was too low for either of us (both under 6 feet) to stand under, the head would not hold its angle and fell off when touched; there were no hooks or shelves in the bathroom. Towels were changed every day with no choice of using twice. Breakfast was adequate but there was no choice in cereal, yoghurt, bread, ham, cheese, jam, fruit and fruit juice. This was easily the most expensive hotel of the 4 we used in tenerife and was the least enjoyable by a long way.

- The Hotel Emblemático San Agustín has only eight rooms, all of them individually decorated, but with a clear common factor: prioritize the guests’ rest for them to relax. For this purpose, highest quality elements have been used, with fine cotton linens and a varied pillow menu for the guests to be able to personalize their experience at the Hotel. The Hotel has been restored respecting the traditional island architecture, being six of the rooms configured around a patio with clear Canarian style elements. The remaining two rooms have windows facing the main building’s façade, overlooking one of the main commercial streets of the town. In the Hotel’s patio is a pleasant cafeteria in which the breakfasts are served and, during the rest of the day, it is possible to have a light snack or enjoy a natural shake or a fruit juice. All the guests are welcomed with a drink. Everything is focused for the guests to feel just like at home. ... more less
