We arrived around 8 30 in the evening and were checked in with a welcome cocktail in minutes. I had emailed before our arrival... More

Situation – All important on an island like Tenerife. There is the south, always hot side and there is the north, sometimes cloudy side. Hotel Garoe is situated on the north side on the edge of the district of La Paz which overlooks Puerto de la Cruz. It is a 15 minute walk to the centre of La Paz. However,... More

This hotel is located in a quiet area offering guests excellent accommodation with sea, mountain or pool views. We requested in advance of our stay a high floor (3rd or 4th) with sea and mountain views that provided morning sun only. Pool view rooms attract the afternoon sun.
