    Nice place to stay
    Stayed here (in or nearby) 9 times over the years, in 4 different hotels & 2 different apartments, & still enjoy it as a nice relaxing place to visit. Quiet, but with enough good restaurants & bars to enjoy, although we have lost 3 of our favourites recently, Ocean View, Restaurante Tamara & Restaurante Paraiso del Sol have all closed down. Their replacements are Bistro 22, a lively place but more pricey. Also Restaurante EnSalitre & Mijia, which we didn't try but looked more expensive than our budget. If you want a quiet holiday this could be the place to come, but beware it is very hilly.

    Great view from the top
    Caught the bus from Playa de las America's to Los Gigantes. The bus takes you a good way down the hill so it's not do much of an uphill struggle on the way back. We broke it up with a cafe break half way between the sea and the bus stop. Nice area with a few shops, bars at the bottom.

    Beautiful location
    Lovely little town with beautiful views and great walking trails into the hills. Also it's a fantastic location for whale watching. Lots of cafes , bars and restaurants. Nice cosmopolitan mix of people from all over the world. Can highly recommend.

    Great day out
    Well worth a visit for the day. There are boat trips to see dolphins and whales and there is a lovely little beach by the harbour. Gets a lot of sun too. Not sure I would want to stay there though. Not much there except hotels.

    Tui Blue Los Gigantes hotel Tenerife
    An enjoyable relaxing holiday. On arrival late in the evening we were welcomed with a drink and a meal waiting. Very much appreciated. All the staff are friendly, helpful and look very smart in their uniforms. The room was very spacious with a fridge filled with water and a welcome bottle of Cava. Tea/coffee making facilities also available .The room safe is 10 euros deposit. Beach towels can be hired for 10 euros deposit. The breakfast and dinner meals were buffet with such a varied choice, everything well presented it was hard to choose. There is something for everyone's taste and needs. All areas and gardens are very well maintained. There is a lending library and board games in the lounge. There is entertainment in the evenings including a very good flamenco dancer. We also visited " the Highland Paddy " bar ( cash only ) just across the road where there are tribute acts each night. Look out for Comedy Elvis also the compere is a good entertainer. There are 2 swimming pools, one with a pool bar. We chose the quieter pool where there were plenty of sunbeds. A lifeguard is in attendance. Opposite the hotel is a good supermarket which is very handy. Also a taxi rank and a bus stop. The marina is close by but the area is very steep to walk around so is not so good for those with mobility issues. Enjoy your stay.

Los Gigantes is basically a huge rockfall that goes Into the sea,quite spectacular looking,and a great photo opportunity.

To be fair that is it,...there is very little else there that you can't, see,buy ,or get from anywhere else, expensive area to eat at,and they make the most of the opportunity to make a fast "buck".
From playa da las Americas its about an hour+ on the bus,which can be a nightmare ,especially the return journey, and around 6€,for the bus each way, in a taxi its 43€ ,the bus seems to stop every 100 meters.

Boat trips are available there at around 25€ for two hours.

worth a visit but don't let your expectations get the better of you.

My wife and myself have just had 2 weeks holidaying here and can say with all honesty it’s the most boring place we’ve ever holidayed in. Lots of residents and OAPS, no nightlife except Paddy’s if you like karaoke or Bamboo bar if you like quiz nights. Sorry to say me and my wife like neither !!. Lots of restaurants shut down and the ones that are open all serving the same English lead food doesn’t seem anything authentic on the menus. If you have mobility issues this is definitely the place to steer clear of as very hilly. Also you have to book a table in a restaurant a couple of days in advance seems to be problems with just walking in.

Firstly parking is horrendous but head down to the port where parking costs about €2 per hour.
The main draw here is the location, situated beneath cliffs rising to 1,900 ft Andy can be seen extending for miles along the coast. Would recommend a boat trip.

We have just returned home from a weeks break at this hotel and wish we could’ve stayed longer.

Our whole experience was was excellent.

From the moment we arrived, our check in was efficient and friendly, which after travelling for several hours is always appreciated.

Our room on the 7th floor was clean, well presented and bed comfortable. The daily cleaning service was thorough and proficient. We found all the staff we encountered friendly and helpful.

The restaurant serves a good selection of food, all of which we found to be good quality.

We are now looking forward to returning to this lovely hotel next year.

We drove down to the coast to view the cliffs, but even in February the town was very busy and difficult to find somewhere to park . The only place we could find to view the cliffs was from the balcony of a cafe. It was a bit hazy when we were there but the cliffs are stunning as they dramatically fall into the sea . Not really much else you can say , I would make a special journey to go there , but nice to stop and see if passing

Friday 10th December and we visited the coastal town of Los Gigantes on the west coast of the Island.

The Town has been named after the nearby vast cliff and rock formations, Los Gigantes - The Giants.

It was our intention to park up and explore the Town, it was a frustrating experience. Parking here was a nightmare and we kept driving around in circles, driving around the one way streets.

Eventually we found a place to park, outside the Town, but where we could overlook the cliffs.

Pleased we persevered in finding a place to park, we were rewarded we great views of the mighty cliffs. They rise up our of the sea reaching heights of between 500 and 800 metres, no wonder they are called Giants.

We took some photographs and moved on to our next port of call.

Few shops and restaurants just outside more than you realise that’s why we are going back in February..and never go back to a hotel or location

It's now possible to walk all the way from Los Gigantes, mostly along the coast, all the way to Playa San Juan. The 5 mile coastal walk to Alcala takes you through Puerto Santiago to Playa de la Arena and the onto the newly landscaped path at Varadero which will take you all the way to Alcala. It breaks away from the coast and you have to use the road/pavement between Playa de la Arena and Varaldero but otherwise a very pleasurable walk with plenty of options for refreshments along the way.
The path onwards the last 2 miles past the babana plantations to San Juan is a bit of a scramble in places. We stop for coffee at Playa Jaquita and enjoy lunch at Playa San Juan.
There are buses back from Alcala and San Juan.
