“Brilliant”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff make sure that everything runs very well. We had a lovely room facing Mount Teide which is exactly what we asked for and it got whatever sun there was all afternoon. Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. We asked for a walk in shower and it was brilliant with jet sprays from the column as well as a overhead power spray.

We celebrated a birthday and wedding anniversary while we were there and were surprised when we returned after breakfast on to find that the bed had been decorated with flowers, chocolates and sweets in the shape of a heart to be followed by champagne and a delicious cake later in the day. This was repeated on our wedding anniversary along with a beautiful display of roses.

Breakfast was fantastic, everything anyone could want regardless of dietary needs was provided.

The pool and spa area are lovely and again all needs are met, we were even provided with fruit while we sat by the pool.

I can't understand why anyone would complain about this hotel! We would love to return.

I have just returned from the Botanico Hotel and what a treat it was to stay there. We spent 4 days at this hotel at the end of a cruise. The service at this hotel is superb. On arrival at reception we were given a lovely fruit cocktail to drink and our cases were taken to our room for us. The bedroom was delightful, beautiful views of the pool and spa area and views of the mountains. Comfy beds with soft pillows and TV that had many English channels. Minutes after arriving there was a knock at the door and it was a maid with a vase with a rose to put into our bathroom, another knock a minute later and a bowl of fresh fruit was delivered, such lovely touches. Bottled water was also supplied daily. The gardens are beautiful and lovely to walk round, there is a small lake with 2 black swans in it. The spa is beautiful, they have various rooms, some with steam and even an ice room. We were on Bed and breakfast but did eat in the Italian restaurant twice and found it very nice. The area around is very hilly.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have better views

Hotel Botanico

We have just spent a week at this hotel and had an enjoyable and peaceful break. From the outside the hotel does not look anything special but from the inside it is well laid out, spotlessly clean and well furnished. We had a room overlooking the spa and on the fourth floor where the views were very good. The gardens are outstanding and have been well designed. The hotel was built in the mid 70's and is a distance away from the coast but you can see the sea over the roofline of other buildings. A very quiet room and hotel.

Breakfast had a wide variety of options and there is something there for everyone and the service was very good. The coffee could be improved however there is a machine where you can get a range of different coffees but not exceptional.

There are three restaurants on site which I do separate reviews for. I would say that the food was always edible but perhaps did not come up to the standards expected of a 5 star hotel based on our previous experience in other hotels. If was to come back again it would be bed and breakfast rather than half board as there is a large number of good restaurants in the area near to the hotel. That said, having the choice of three different restaurants and styles of cuisine meant you could pick and choose depending upon which restaurant was open. The service in each of the restaurants appeared to be mixed and inconsistent. Some of the staff were very good. Jonathan who is a waiter at breakfast is a good example of someone always willing to help and always with a smile on his face.

There were a couple of errors on my bill when checking out and these related to the restaurants so it is worth checking this before you leave. They were of course corrected.

On the whole this is a very good hotel but the restaurants stop it being outstanding. There is a mix of different age groups with the majority in the 50+ age group and few children at the hotel.

Room Tip: The upper floors have the best views. The spa garden views are very good

This hotel really is the best in Tenerife. The hotel is set in a wonderful garden with amazing flowers and plants. Gorgeous rooms – we had a pool view room which was fabulous, we especially loved the bathroom. The staff that will do anything to help you, they are always so friendly! The Botanico has the most relaxing pool area and gardens, the spa area is totally rejuvenating & peaceful. The buffet breakfast offers everything you could possibly want with foods including cooked breakfasts, pastries, freshly prepared fruits, cereals, breads, cheeses, cakes, yoghurts, pancakes and more. The waiters are so attentive and bring you a newspaper every morning. I would recommend taking a stroll outside the hotel for some traditional restaurants and shops – there’s a lovely little Italian restaurant just across the road. This hotel is really lovely and I would recommend to all.

First of all we must say that we had a lovely stay at the Botanico but some of the comments that we read prior to leaving do appear to be a little over the top. We were very disappointed with the room at the hotel (151) given we were sold it as either a Teide or Ocean view room. All we had a view of was a very large tree that prevented any view at all from the balcony. The bathroom was also tired with major damp and staining, I am sorry to say not 5 stars but 4 stars at best. Service in the three restaurants in the evening for dinner was also very poor and slow with the wrong bill being presented on 2 occasions. One day our room had not been serviced by 1500. During busy periods sun beds were very difficult to find. This apart everything else about the hotel was fine with the staff being very friendly and attentive and the spa outstanding. I would have to rate the hotel 4 star not 5.

Room Tip: do not choose 151

Wow!! If you choose this hotel you will not be disappointed!
From the moment we walked in we were greeted with fresh fruit cocktails and smiles, The hotel is in a league of its own and rooms are lovely with picturesque views of both mountains and the sea.

Buffet Breakfast offers everything you could possibly want with foods including cooked breakfasts, pastries, freshly prepared fruits, cereals, breads, cheeses, cakes, yoghurts, pancakes and more ... The hotel has 3 restaurants for dinner , Spanish, Italian and Thai, along with a poolside bar and cafe. There are also ample cafés and restaurants located opposite the hotel which is located just two mins from the Botanic Gardens (which are well worth a visit at just €3). We ate are at Olivio Cafe opposite the gardens- this is run by a lovely lady and the food was delicious! There is also a supermarket 8 mins walk away . The hotel provides a free shuttle bus in to town or a taxi ride is just under €4 each way. The bus stop is just across the road and you can take busses to other towns or the airports if your on a budget. The room fee includes use of the hotels spa and pools, all staff are multi lingual and do their very best to make your stay a special memory. Highly recommend and I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: All rooms are plentiful in size and are beautifully decorated. Balconies are good and air conditioni...
