Tucked right behind a sandy beach, this Cesar Manrique-designed hotel has a setting worth shouting about.
The adults-only Gran Tinerfe couldn’t be in a better spot. Turn one way and there’s a sandy beach. Head the other and there’s a great mix of shops, bars and restaurants.
As well as 3 pools and a sea-view restaurant, this place has an impressive bar – it’s up on a roof terrace and has standout sunset views.

Second return... Even better than the first!
Wow! What can I say?! The perfect holiday! Just come back from 11 nights at the Gran Tinerfe, our second stay at this hotel and definitely not our last! We arrived to complimentary glasses of cava while the receptionists checked us in, very prompt and within 10 minutes we were in our room! Room: the room was beautiful, didn't have a sea room but still had a lovely view of the mountains. The bed was massive! And 3 very big pillows each was lovely! Bathroom good, shower very powerful, however did make floor very wet. Good hanging space in wardrobe, not so much drawer space. Found the mini fridge/mini bar to be excellent value, we paid just over â¬14 and that gave us the fridge for our stay and stocked with 2 cokes, 2 fanta oranges, 2 fanta lemons, 4 bottles of water, 4 bottles of juice and a bag of sweets! We were on 1st floor which was handy as didn't have to wait for lifts. Staff: our room maid was very efficient, always cleaned the room to a very high standard and changed towels whenever we left them in the bath, she was very friendly and when ever we passed her in the corridor she always said hello. The reception staff were very helpful and we were always seen to quickly. Restaurant staff were always busy and on hand to promptly serve. Thomson reps provided a very good welcome meeting explaining all the information we would need to know, very helpful when booking excursions and in the hotel quite a lot. One of the managers, Maria, was very helpful, we saw her everywhere! A very active part of the running of the hotel! One evening our air conditioning had stopped working, we hung a problem sign on the door and it was fixed by the next morning! Thank you! Pools: the pools were beautiful and very big, never busy and very relaxing, the square pool gets the sunshine after 12pm but is heated which was nice. Aqua gym was good fun and music good. Ate at the pool bar a few times which was nice. Always able to get sun loungers, even past 11am. Evening entertainment: the evening entertainment wasn't really for us so we went out a lot, we did take part in the foam party however which was lots of fun. Food: the food was plentiful and always being restocked, never once did I see empty trays. Large choice of breads, fruits and cheeses. The show cooking was good however sometimes you have to wait a long time, chef was very passionate about his food. Wifi worked for us perfectly on our balcony, never had any problems. Would definitely advise people to visit siam park and loro parque. Great location, turn left out of the hotel and you have costa adeje, turn right and there is playa Americas. We also did a 20 minute walk right which led us to tenerifes big 3 shopping centres and the Hard Rock Cafe which was great! Thank you for an incredible stay!More

Fantastic Hotel can't wait to return
Firstly we would like to state as seasoned travellers who have stayed in 5 star boutique hotels in various places that this is an outstanding hotel. We stayed for 2 weeks 29/8/14-12/9/14. The hotel is in a fantastic location and there aren't many places where you can eat your evening meal on a beautiful terrace with no obstruction to what can only be described as a breathtaking view and the most amazing sunset every evening. There are few hotels where the hotel looks better than in the brochure however the H10 Gran Tinerfe exceeds what is shown in the brochure. The hotel is modern, well designed and has all of the facilities you can wish for whilst on holiday. In particular the roof bar terrace where you can relax with a cocktail overlooking the fantastic view. The pool areas are very well designed and there are always plenty of sun beds and no need to rush in the morning. We would go to the pool about 11am each morning and had no problem in getting sun beds. The pools are visibly tested everyday which was nice to see and the area is kept immaculate. We were fortunate enough to be allocated a corner room which overlooked the pool, sea and mountains. The room was modern, very clean (Rosa Mary did a fantastic job everyday) and we were very impressed. The room benefited from 2 air conditioning units, a very large bed and a living area with a separate seating area. There was a fridge in the room which is locked and only opened if you purchase a mini bar option however we didn't find this a massive problem. The restaurant was very modern, spacious and there was an abundance of freshly cooked food available everyday. The standard of food was extremely high and is food to suit any taste. The show cooking particularly by Rafael was impressive and always delivered on taste. The waiting on staff were friendly, professional and worked very hard. It's a shame that a lot of guests don't have the courtesy or manners to say a simple thank you when their plates are cleared. On the terrace area for dinner, there is only about 20 tables therefore if you wish to sit out there you do need to queue however this is usually only for a couple of minutes. Although it is also noted that some rude guests feel this is below them to queue and cannot wait to start picking at the food and eating it in the queue. Drinks are charged to the room however the prices are very reasonable and are not over inflated at all. Maria the guest relations manager is exceptional, nothing is too much trouble and she couldn't do enough for us to make our stay special. It was nice to see as a manager that she takes an active role in the hotel and is often seen helping in the dining room or tidying up around the pool area. Maria really is a credit to the hotel. Many of the reviews on here are completely unfounded and we would advise them to be ignored as this is an exceptional hotel and we very much enjoyed our two week holiday. It was our first stay at the hotel and we will be returning, in fact family members have today booked to stay here on our recommendation. The only negative about the hotel is that it is allowed for guests to smoke on the dining terrace area which we found many guests to be inconsiderate and smoke next to you whilst eating, which as non smokers we found disgusting. It's a shame that people won't wait to leave the dining table to smoke and have more consideration towards others. We would like to thank Maria for making our stay memorable. Scott and Kat MillerMore

Amazing 2 Weeks Stay
Arrived early afternoon to a warm reception was told to take a seat and was given a glass of Sparkling Wine whilst we waiting for the reception staff to check us in. Intially we were located a Sea View Bungalow when we checked the room it was down a number of steps and although the room did have a front sea view it was not really a balcony as such it seemed like another room in a room with a sliding window. Although the room was really clean it did not suite our travel party therefore we called reception to advise it was unsuitable and we were moved straight away to a pool view bungalow which was just stunning. The Room had plenty of wardrobe space together with 2 draws in the wardrobe and lots of shelf space we had a safe which is 26 Euros per week to hire and a 10 Euro deposit which is refundable however ensure you keep the receipt they give you for the safe as without it you will not get your 10 euros back. Room was cleaned daily with fresh towels provided we also received towels for the pool area and bathrobe and slippers There is a fridge in the room which can be hired for 10 Euros you can ask to have the fridge emptied and this will enable you to buy water or soft drinks from local shop and store for your own convenience alternatively you can pay for different packages from the hotel The staff were always really helpful at reception if you had any problems at all a special mention to Maria who assisted us with our booking lovely lady There are activities during the day that are displayed on the board near to the restaurant these range from Nordic Walks to Pentanc (French Boules) rifle shooting pistol shooting Archery Waterpolo to the lengths of a Foam Party in one of the pools the entertainment team were just fantastic they made our holiday so much fun Special mention to Juraj,Roberto and Seda who were all just brilliant they were extremely professional in every manner. The Evening Entertainment was different each night from Acrobats to Singers and even Belly Dancing all were superb The pool areas were kept immaculately clean at all times no need to rush for a sunbed either there were always plenty. If you are a lilo person or wants a ball game in the pool this is not allowed you will need to go to the beach to do this which is literally down a couple of flights of stairs and your are there The Restaurant always had a good selection of food for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner but like most European hotels it did get a little repetitive however everything was immaculately clean and replenished and beautifully presented Note Apart from food everything else is charged to your room and you pay at the end of your stay we kept all our yellow receipts so you could check your bill however a good idea is to pay your bill daily from the day before then all transactions are fresh in your mind which was not a problem Outside the hotel there are plenty of shops restaurants and you are not to far from the nightlife if you wanted it but far enough not to hear it Average taxi to Los Critianos Market on a Sunday is approx 6 Euros each way to Fanabe Market which are on a Thursday and Saturday is around 5 Euros plenty of bags belts and your ususal spanish affair if you are into your designers Michael Kors is quite big our there All in all we had a fantastic holiday with some amazing company and the staff all were brilliant Also a special mention to Katie and Leonara who were our Reps you were fantastic girls. Weather was also fantastic for the whole 2 weeks.More
We just come back from 2 weeks in Tenerife. The hotel is well situated. We were in room 314, looking over the sea and had a good time. The staff is friendly, the dining area was always clean and the restaurant was most efficient and helpful. There was a good choice of dishes and food was plentiful. Breakfast was provided for all tastes: omelettes and fried were cooked in front of you, the way you wanted to. Great choice of fillings for the omelettes. Plenty of fresh fruit, yoghurts, bread and buns of all types. Baskets, food trays were always refilled rapidly. Evening meal was good too. As it was a buffet, there was food for every taste. I do like cheese and was spoilt by the choice and the figs, dates, grapes served with it. Every day there were different meats, fish in sauces or cooked in front of you by the chef. Once a week we had Japanese food which was excellent as was the seafood evening. Plenty of delicious prawns, mussels, crabs, smoked or pickled fish. We did enjoy breakfast and dinner. We were more disappointed by the room as I mentioned on the living form: there was hardly any storage place vat all, only one drawer in each bedside table and a fridge which was working but locked as you could only use it when purchasing one of their packs, the cleaning was very superficially done; in fact I do not think the balcony was cleaned once during our 2 week stay. Sometimes there was one towel missing, or a glass or ... one of the bed valences which made it look like a camping bed .... not acceptable in a supposedly 4 star hotel. On top of that, the air conditioning was far from working properly and we had, at times, to open the French window to get some cooler air. Rather disappointing for a hot country. Needless to say that although we enjoyed Tenerife and the food in the we would not wish to return to such poor accommodation.More
Disappointed again. Will not come back.
I am so disappointed. Having been this hotel every year for the last fifteen years I thought last year was untypical for the restaurant choice an quality. Sadly I am mistaken. Quality of food is poor, range of choice limited and the inability of the staff to maintain food levels so that everyone has the same choice is awful. I am a grand classe member but I had to ask for the benefits in order to get them. The wait to check in was poor too! So despite other good qualities, there are other better hotels to choose from so for me I won't be back.More
