I stayed two nights at Puerto Palace Hotel in April 2013. I got a very good price on the hotel, and cannot really complain when I consider this (hence the rating). That being said; this is by no standards a 4-stars hotel. Everything from the reception to the rooms seemed to have had its heydays in the 70s. Even though it was all clean, it has not been well maintained over the years…
My room was quite small, and the door to the balcony was impossible to close completely. Even though it is never really cold at night, a chilly wind found its way into my room. And with only a single blanket in the bed, I was freezing (I got more blankets the next day, but the draught was still quite uncomfortable).
You have to pay to get Internet access in your room, and in the reception area it was painfully slow. Impossible to use to anything else than checking your e-mail.
The breakfast was, for me, a big disappointment. I have had many great breakfasts at hotels in Tenerife, and this was an all-time low. It was no more than adequate, and of low quality. The bread was unusually dry, the selection of ham, cheese etc. was almost non-existent and the coffee weak. I did however appreciate the scrambled eggs with mushrooms. But again, how much can I expect for € 45 per night?
The receptionists were all nice and helpful, and the pool area seemed OK.
The hotel is situated a bit outside the city, up on the hill, but it is a nice walk down to the city center and to Loro Parque. I arrived with bus, and took a taxi to the hotel – which cost me € 3,6. Money well spent, even though it would not take you more than 20 minutes to walk up with suitcases.
I would recommend this hotel if you want a budget holiday.
