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.

We've just returned from a week at the Gran Tinerfe. Positives: a great selection at breakfast and dinner; plenty of comfy loungers and nice pools; massive bed in a modern room; great sea view and sunset when it wasn't cloudy (paid extra for); like the tab system so don't have to faff for money when purchasing drinks; efficient waiters in the bars and restaurant; wifi not as bad as it's been made out - I could get wifi by the pool and bar as well as reception. Less positive: didn't really like being given a set time for dinner though I understand why as it gets busy. We were given 8pm and couldn't move it earlier. The staff obviously get bored with being asked. We lived with it though. Some food a bit lukewarm eg scrambled eggs at breakfast; not a fan of safe keys - panicked about losing it all week. All minor stuff though to be honest. Would I go back? Yes. Says it all! More

another restful visit
This was our second holiday at the Gran Tinerfe. It was just as good as our previous visit and we enjoyed ourselves very much.Before we arrived I e mailed to ask for the same room as on our previous visit and I am pleased to say that they were able to do this. In fact the staff were very helpful and professional and tried very hard to make our stay a very good one. We were particularly impressed with reception and our cheerful singing chamber maid on floor 10. The bottom line is -Yes would would go back again. We travelled with Thomson and beware of the airport transfer! It is the last drop off and seems to take forever. I would not do this again.Last time we went this did not happen and we were satisfied with the transfer. The rooms are clean but there are only 2 main drawers so storage is not easy and we had to use our suitcase.The seaview is stunning and rooms at the top are quiet and I slept well. The beds are 6 foot wide and comfortable. We could only get ITV and the news channel of BBC on the tv.I think that they have cut back on what they offer. The buffet restaurant is pretty chaotic and not a good experience . However there was usually something I liked.The coffee at breakfast was awful.The layout of the buffet was not well thought out and there was a lot of pushing. The clientele has changed since our last visit and there are a lot more German people there. There are a few negatives. Threadbare towels in the bathroom, are not good and to be honest the bathroom could do with a refit. The carpet in the corridor is a bit tatty and needs replacing. I like the fact that they take the towels off the sunbeds before 10.00 in the morning. However the attendant was a bit lax this time and he had to be prompted to do the rounds. There are some nice bars nearby. I can recommend the Cocktaileria.If you go out of the hotel turn left and left again you will stumble on it. Cocktails of good quality can be had for 3 euros.Also the restaurant Mania which is on the seafront,turn left when going out of the back of the hotel. The liqueur coffees are wonderful at 5 euros each, but the cocktails here are too pricey in comparison to elsewhere. The drink prices in the hotel are acceptable and the same as anywhere really. We will return in the future sometime,as it is so relaxingMore

Cruise and stay holiday
Have just returned from a cruise & stay holiday, 1st week on the Majesty & 2nd in this hotel. Lovely hotel, but rather disappointed with room (308), a lovely big bed, but not much room to get around, we had to move a chair to get in and out of one side of the bed!. Asked for a high floor when booking, but only got 3rd floor. Hotel is in an excellent position with direct access to the sea front. We were a little disappointed on check in, as we were offered a glass of wine, on saying we did not drink wine, were not offered an orange juice, although later in the week we saw people being offered it. It made us feel like the poor relations. Having said all this, I would return to this hotel if we went back to Tenerife, if only for the location.More

Our third visit to the Gran Tinerfe in 18 months. All-round excellent Privilege package and easy access to the main promenade. Centrally situated in Playa de las Americas. Very good entertainment every night of the week.An experienced staff who clearly enjoy their jobs.More

Love this hotel
Would never normally write a review but have to take a minute just to say this hotel is fab. We have stayed here 4 times now at different times of the year. The food and drink are lovely. The staff are very friendly, a special thanks to Maria as she sorts things out for you without a problem and the guy that hands out the shots before dinner is very funny and friendly. Sunset bar is gorgeous to relax and watch sunset. Even on colder evenings they supply blankets to stay cozy. The main thing we enjoy about the hotel is the location. Easy to walk into busy las Americas, your right on the beach and not far from the quieter bars and a massive bonus is no kids ð. All round enjoyable hotel. More
