Maritim Hotel Tenerife
What We Love
- A charming hotel on the Canary Island of Tenerife, with breakfast or half boardTucking into Canarian specialities at the resort’s two signature restaurants
- Spending the afternoon playing tennis on the newly-renovated clay courts
- The 40,000 square metres of sub-tropical gardens
What To Know
- Rooms are clean but a bit dated
- The hotel provides free shuttle service to and from town
- The closest beach is a 10 to 15-minute walk away
The chill-out factor is high at this four-star resort in Puerto de la Cruz – the laid-back town on Tenerife’s north coast that’s all vineyards, banana plantations and volcanic black-sand beaches. Best of all, its position at the foot of the La Orotava Valley means that it gets less rain and more sunshine than anywhere else on the island.
Perfect for those keen to check in, zone out and happily stay glued to the spot for the duration, there’s three newly-renovated clay tennis courts, four new paddle courts, mini-golf, fitness centre, and dive centre. Elsewhere, you’ll find three lovely freshwater pools with sun terraces and two relaxed bars for snacks and day-to-night tipples.
The thrills continue in the guest rooms where you can look forward to traditional Canarian-inspired décor, ample mod cons, and views of the Atlantic Ocean or beautiful landscaped grounds from your balcony. Equally worthy of your attention are the signature restaurants, both of which pull focus on international cuisine and homemade island delicacies.
How to Get There
Spent 1 week at the hotel in a 'superior room' with the sea view. The sea view and the sound of the sea was amazing so that's a definite plus. The personel was super nice and friendly (maybe because we were travelling with a baby) and absolutely everyone spoke English. The food(half board) was also really good considering the negative reviews I've read on here. Lots of sea food and fish dishes for dinner and breakfast was good and varied.
Onto the negatives .. the location is a drawback especially if you're travelling with kids or a baby with a stroller. It's on a hill and there isn't that much within comfortable walking distance. Luckily we had a car so it wasn't a big problem..but still. As others have said the furniture/room is a bit dated but I don't think that's a big deal since it was nicely maintained and clean. The beds however were not that comfortable and very soft but maybe it's good for some. If you're travelling with a baby they provided a cot in the room and have high chairs in the restaurant as well as a baby/kid pool. Overall, we had a great experience due to staff, room view and to an extent food but we'll choose something else for next time.
Stayed here in July with my partner. It is a beautiful hotel. It is out of the way from the town. We rented a car which we got for a very good price! Would recommend renting a car! Petrol wasn’t expensive! Many restaurants to choose from in the town 10 mins away by car/ 20 to 30 minutes walk! Breakfast was a buffet style and very tasty, with many options. They also had a complimentary bus service to and from the town at certain times. The only thing about it was it was a little bit dated and nothing to do really for younger couples! But targeted older couples traveling for a nice relaxing stay! Would return in the further!
On first impressions and looking at the website one tends to think that this is a good property.
Staff are extremely friendly, professional and obliging.
The downstairs foyer is plain but nice.
Restaurant evening meal was thoroughly enjoyable along with very pleasant staff.
Breakfast choices are very good.
So absolutely no complaints with regards to dining.
They desperately need a refurbishment!
I felt as though I was in a 1970’s time warp!
Carpets discoloured, worn out and desperately due for a change.
We were a group of 5 and we all agreed.
Along the hallways too worn out grubby looking carpets.
My room had a wonderful view of the ocean.
I wasn’t able to lock the balcony door.
And personally in this day and age WHO CHARGES TO USE THE SAFE IN THE ROOMS ANYMORE???
Our one night was sufficient as we missed our connection from mainland Spain to La Palma.
It served it’s purpose but if we had booked a longer period for a vacation it would have been an immediate CHECK OUT!
There was also a damp smell which could’ve been the A/C
