Hotel San Roque
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Garachico
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We stayed here for a week booking only 5 days in advance but this was not a problem as it was low season and the hotel was around a quarter full. We booked via Expedia but in hindsight feel booking direct would have given us a far better deal.
The small hotel (only about 20 rooms) had been sympathetically restored with great attention to detail. There were plenty of quiet spaces/rooms to sit - the upper sun terrace with views of the mountains, the internal courtyard with quiet background music, landings with comfy sofas, poolside and the lounge/bar area. Breakfast and evening meal were served around the pool courtyard.
We did not eat there every evening but when we did the food was amazing, some of the best we have eaten anywhere and as others have commented deserving of a Michelin star. As well as being delicious with a modern twist on Canarian/ Mediterranean food it was presented very artistically. The waitress was charming and encouraged us to speak a little Spanish. All other staff too were exceptional especially the front desk who gave us information on local walks, even printing out information for us. Do make use of them as they have a wealth of knowledge.

We stayed in a duplex room and enjoyed the extra space but did feel it was quite dark as others have mentioned. On the plus side there was a view of the mountain from our bed through a skylight style window.
The slight disadvantages were problems parking especially at weekends or during fiestas (though staff would be more than happy to park you car for you), no complimentary bottled water and limited pool hours. However if we were to come back to Tenerife this is where we would stay without hesitation. Garachico is a lovely little seaside town with very few tourists other than locals apart from those coming by coach for the day to visit the lava pools.

Our flight was delayed so we arrived quite late at Garachico, but the hotel still provided us with a lovely meal. Our room was excellent and large, over two floors and overlooking the pool. Breakfast was very good, with a large variety of cereals, fruit, cakes, pastries, yoghurts and eggs cooked to order. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. A perfect, quiet, relaxing stay.

We had 8 nights in the Tower suite as a getaway following our wedding and must say this was a fantastic part of Tenerife - very quiet and very pretty. The hotel was great and the staff really could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and welcoming. We hired a car for a few days to guarantee some sunshine and a beach as this part of the island is considerably cooler and cloudier than the remainder of the island. The best thing about the hotel (and Garachico generally) is that the food is absolutely amazing. Not an English breakfast or Roast dinner in sight - really really good food. La Taskita and Mirador de Garachico are almost equal to the hotel restaurant in quality (and are actually probably better value).

I stayed in San Roque a few years ago and came back last december. It's still a great hotel.. great looks, nice staff, fine food. But i did notice it's starting to get a bit old(er).. it's nothing too important but just little things about the rooms (I actually got the exact same room.. so it was easy to compare), just not as fresh and new as it used to be. Everything is very clean though (the rooms get cleaned every day). As for the restaurant food, also not as good as I remember from a few years ago, but maybe I just changed in the meantime. :)
Anyways.. still a very good hotel and if you want to avoid mass tourism Garachico is one of the nicest places to stay in Tenerife.

We had a very relaxing week at this excellent hotel.

Situated in Garachico which is unlike any other resort we have stay in on Tenerife.
Small narrow cobbled streets very clean and no time share touts or English style bars thank goodness.

The hotel was very clean and the rooms comfortable. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel restaurant was very good and breakfast you had plenty of choice and was relaxed.
There was a good choice of breakfast items and hot food cooked to order.

The evening menu is limited but excellent.

The pool was the only let down as the water was very cold and this seems to be a comment from very one.

Room Tip: You might want to take a room on the first floor as the wooden floors do carry some noise.

We cannot speak highly enough of this place. From the warm welcome on arrival, help with parking and bags, a room upgrade when they heard we were on honeymoon (plus flowers and wine in the room!), everything was outstanding. The breakfasts are good, dinners are top quality (the duck, local fish and suckling pig all highly recommended) and service at all times was excellent and friendly, but not stuffy or over-formal. Where other hotels can be functional, this one really cares that you have a great time during your stay. Special thank you to Manolo on reception, who was brilliant!
