El Tope Hotel
What We Love
- A scenic stay in sunny Tenerife, with sea views, half board and champagneThe fantastic views of Puerto de la Cruz, the sea and Mount Teide

- Your half-board basis makes for a laid-back, stress-free stay
What To Know
- The hotel is located at the top of a steep slope – expect a lot of stairs
- It's a 15-minute walk to the Botanical Gardens
- The pool has plenty of sun loungers so finding a spot shouldn't be hard
In an elevated position above the coastal town of Puerto de la Cruz, Gran Hotel el Tope enjoys a prime location with a fabulous views towards the sea and up towards looming Mount Teide.
Outside the hotel, this attractive town is a mix of traditional tiled houses, modern architecture and quiet plazas. Don’t miss one of the town’s main draws – the impressive Lago Martíanez water complex, which boasts one of Europe’s largest saltwater pools. Puerto’s beach is a striking arc of dark volcanic sand and the balmy year-round climate (1,600 hours of sunshine each year) means you can enjoy all this even in the winter months.
The hotel itself is a modern affair surrounded by lush green vegetation, bougainvillea and verdant gardens. It’s recently undergone extensive renovation in many areas, so expect smart fresh décor, especially in your room, which boast fantastic sea views from your private balcony. Facilities include a gym, wellness facilities, a circular swimming pool and tennis courts.
Good to know
There is a steep climb up steps to the hotel so those with mobility problems should go by way of the road. Parking is available for hotel guests.
How to Get There
Me and my partner travelled to this hotel in September we arrived late Jesus on reception checked us in and told us there was some food made up for us. Which after a long journey we were really grateful for, the room was perfect really good sized and a terrace with sun loungers. We hired a kettle for the week as us brits love a brew. All the staff were amazing from the restaurant and bar to the cleaners.
The food was great so much choice and fresh and probably the best range of all inclusive drinks ever!
The only complaint we had was we didn’t have longer. So we booked again before we got on the plane.
Thank you El Tope for a really enjoyable stay.
See you in April!
So first time in tenerife in november and weather rubbish.two and a bit days of sun but overall the hotel has been a gd experience.very nice big room,comfy beds bbc1 and ITV on the telly plus bbc world news.staff very friendly and nice with one exception the guy at the bar in the evening if he cracked a smile it was probably wind.very clean and spotless rooms,food was really nice different choices each day the only gripe is the different all inclusive drinks menu in the bar which is very limited and DONT ask for cocktails they are made by a MACHINE ???? not nice I'm afraid be aware that there are a lot of steps down to the main part of resort not bad going down but a killer coming back up.the pool is relatively small for the size of the hotel which could be a problem in peak season.Might try south of the island because of the hour and abit transfer from airport....but overall a nice relaxing stay...
We are here at the moment and first impressions are that I'm sure the rooms were amazing back in the 70s! They are a great size and we have a good sized terrace even though I'm not sure if it gets any sun. But oh my god the rooms are old...they are a bit grubby, no aircon to speak of and the beds are quite hard - we have asked if we can be moved into a refurbished room but even though the hotel really isn't at capacity we have been told no. We have paid for a superior room with a balcony or terrace too btw. Staff have been nice and the pool area seems lovely but prepare yourself for an outdated trip back in time for your room!
