We enjoyed staying in Puerto de la Cruz. The Hotel El Tope we thought was very good. Rooms slightly tired but nothing to worry about. The food we thought was generally of a reasonable quality and variety. The only complaint was that the food was rarely hot. The waiters were very good.
There are about 120 steps down to the road or a walk down a steep slope if you prefer. It did not trouble us during the day but if you felt like a short stroll by the coast or in town in the evening then the steps tended to put you off. You can walk up hill , not very far to the main road and bus stop.There was entertainment in the hotel 6 nights out of seven. The pool area is lovely very clean and many flowers. Also small but pleasant gardens in which to sit. There seemed to be very few English people in the hotel. Many Germans but no issues over sun loungers there was always plenty. A pool attendant brought mattresses pool towels and parasols.
Not ideal for children although there were a few staying.
Woken every morning by noisy cockerels crowing nearby , not the fault of the hotel but rather annoying
We stayed 11 nights and visited La Laguna - well worth a visit. Oratava also good . Santa Cruz if you want to shop.
We would stay at the hotel again if visiting Puerto de la Cruz .
